QUICK-GROWING VINES FURNISH LOVELY SCREEN Planted Now, They Will Hide Ugly Spots For the !alo gardener \v!io wants n. sheet of color in large quantity there is nothing bettor than tlie annual flowerliiR vines. Not only are tlie delicate flowers of exceptional beauty when viewed as single blooms, but the mass effect on a fence or wnll is one of the most, beautiful sights anyone could wish for. If yon have ,n backyard fence, a sereencd-in back porch, or a garage a(, the back of the lot,- they will cover it with blooms in short order. The twining- habit of the morning glories make them take hold of their support at once and soon form a solid screen of foilnge spangled with' the handsome blue, rose and white chalices each morning. The scarlet, runner bean with its' brilliant blooms and its white vari- Morning Glories Arc One of tlie Best Vines For Screening. . __ ety give other fine materials for a vine-draped fence. More brilliant is the cardinal climber, although its foliage is not heavy enough to make the screen furnished by the beans and morning glories. The most striking vine decoration easily grown, will consist of the finer strains of Japanese morning glories with their wonderfully colored and formed flowers. They are slower to germinate and not as robust as the common morning glory, but once started make rapid growth. The hyacinth bean with purple flowers is another handsome draper". Most interesting'of all and a-great delight to the youngsters is the gourd in its numerous varieties and colorings. A gourd fence will furnish a novelty of great interest anc the gourds Will-serve as rtlhythlngs after the vines Have been 1 destroyed by fl-ost. There- Is HO excuse fbr leaving a bare fence about a vegetable garden with the wealth of annual and perennial vines that mny be employed to cover it. Tlie tall nasturtiums, with A' guiding hand to tie them in place, wtl make a brilliant fence cover ahc furnish lavish material for cutting for the house all* slimmer. They dd not need too rich soil' and- are one of the easiest of all Vines to grow Their handicap is-that'they Have no means of cllrnblng either by ten- drilk or by twining and must be tied- m place. Tliey make n long and vigorous growth.

BE CERTAIN YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY OF In selecting a new refrigerator in 1936, more than ever, one needs to be careful about freezing speeds because the demand for ice cubes in the average home has increased tremendously during recent years. Except for coffee in the morning, nearly all beverages served' now- a-days contain three or four ice cubes in each serving,, and is annoying, especially in hot weather, when all available ice cubes are us'ecf at lunch; and : you'find there is not sufficient freezing capacity to pro'du'Ce a new supply before supper time. You can assure yourself on this point in talking with your Electric Refrigerator dealer, as most electric dealers will readily agree to guarantee their refrigerators' to produce at least three -full greetings of ice cubes between breakfast and-supper, even in the hottest weather.

FINAL SERVICE TONIGHT IS TO CLOSEREVIVAL Church Invites All to Heai* Sermon by Visitor The revival which hap been in progress for 10 days at Francis Avenue Church of Christ will close this evening. According to announcements of E. C. McKenzl-2, rhlhistef, there have been unusually large audiences in attendance thru- oiit the entire evangelistic campaign. There have been visitors present from six states and 42 cities of the Panhandle of Texas and Oklahoma, and 26 ministers of the Church of Christ from various sections of the couritry. Last evening Dr. N. B. Hardeman, giiest speaker, used as his text Ro- rhans 8:23. He chose as his subject "The Wages of Sin." The evangelist stated that "no word in all the world is hardly as big as the little" word sin. We can trace all our heartaches, trouble's, gloom and despair back to this word. "In the city of the dead, the marble shafts, proclaim silently to the world that fact of the existence of sin. Every time we sec in our fields thorns antl thistles we see clearly the results of sin. "The definition of sin is very clearly given in the Bible. It is simply the transgression of God's law. Jehovah has given to us a positive law and when we deliberately, walk across it we tiecomt gHiiltj' of sin. When we transgress the civil law of our state we sin against it. The Apostle John gave us a negative definition when lie stated that all unrighteousness is sin. Unrighteousness means a failure to do God's will. "A person can sill and go to lieil and' never do anything wrong. A person cannot go to heaven by simply' being' good. There is a sin of omission and a sin of commission. There will be more people lost for not doing God's will than - those who flagrantly and openly violate jtiis.divine law. The one talent man of which we read in Hie Bible never did : anything wrong, yet he was lost. He simply did nothing. "The wages of sin is death which means'eternal banishment from the jresence of God. It is a terrible .ragedy trial brilliant men and wo- nen arc .so enveloped in business pursuits and the pleasures this world; affords that they will some day be' paid such wages." .Every one is most co'rclially invited: to attend the closing- service of the revival this evening at 8:15. The only known rookery of sea liblis' on the American mainland is at Sea Lion Point, Oregon. Radiant Mrs. Vandenberg Whether or not her husliand accepted the vice presidential nomination apparently had little effect on the cheery mood of mi's. Arthur H.
