Columbus, O. "Big cities axe alike
the world over. The temptations
they hold for young people are the
same in Europe and America. So the
American music student is in no
greater danger in Europe than she
is in America," is the opinion of Miss
Marie Hernstein, the pianiste who
spent many years studying in Berlin
and Vienna. "The girl who loves her
work and pays strict attention to it
is pretty safe anywhere."
TALE. OF TWO CITIES
In "Millionaires' Row," on once
beautiful Euclid avenue, Cleveland, is
a patch of lawn pock-marked with
bare spots where careless folks have
trodden the sod to death. The other
morning over each bared space ap
peared the notice:
KEEP OFF! -
Par eastward, on Commonwealth
avenue, in classic Boston, there is a
similar problem, but a different solu
tion. There the sign reads:
PLEASE!
Thousands of persons a day pass
both places. In Cleveland they gen
erally scowl; whereas, in Boston, they
smile. What m the form of a surly
command excites a wish to trespass,
in the form of a courteous appeal in
stantly wins sympathy and a gleam
of humor. The Boston lawn is recov
ering finely. Folks sometimes bring
lawnseed to help it along.
Politeness isn't a bit more effort
than gruffness. And it surely does
make life a lot more pleasant.

WHADDYEMEAN BY A LUCKY
HORSESHOE?
In early Christian days every
household had its image of the
Blessed Virgin and the Christ Child,
and a halo always shone above the
Virgin's head. A cresent-shaped piece
of shining metal was used as a
crown or halo, and, the metal being
of enduring material, often remain
ed in its place on the wall when the
statue had disappeared. The gleam
ing halo was looked upon as a sacred
talisman, and in time the horseshoe,
which was also crescent shaped,
came to be considered an omen of
goodness and a harbinger of good
luck.
