UMBRELLA FRAME FOR YOUR GARDEN
"Umbrellas have a lot of uses even when there is no rain falling. For
instance, there is nothing that makes quite so good a trellis for climbing
plants and vines in the flower beds on the lawn. Of course, the umbrella
selected for this particular job must be an old one and must have no cover. .
Run a length of fine wire through the holes at the end of each rib and
fasten the ends of the wire together so that when the umbrella is "raised"
the ribs will take a graceful curve.
The handle is then inserted in the ground and theplants will climb all
over the steel frame and make quite an attractive center piece.
PROVING THA T A WOMANCAN KEEP A SECRET

clad soldier of Uncle Sam, paused a bit at Chicago while going to Manila.
In the Windy City he met 18-year-old Margaret Hands, an art student down
Valor and beauty had 'the usual experience. She looked good to him
and vice versa, and while he was in the Philippines they corresponded.
. A boat he was on foundered, on a wilderness detail he was a year with
out being able to post a letter, she thought him dead and she came near1
wedding another when, in the nick of time, the gallant soldier reappeared
and they were married.
That was nine years ago. But not until the other day did Mrs. Harry
tell husband that the comely art student who had so completely crept into
his heart was also an heiress with a net inheritance of $50,000. She knew
it when they, first met, but she wanted to be loved for herself alone. Then
came litigation Over a will and she decided not to tell until the inheritance
was certain. The grist of the courts took its final grind in her favor a few
weeks ago and the fortunate pair are now on their second honeymoon.
How would you like a surprise like that?
