The articles required are a bottle
of olive oil, a bottle of alcohol, some
Hew or perfectly clean canton flan

a basin of water.

ceeding to a fresh section.
Polish with chamois or a fresh
piece of flannel. Rub with the grain
of the wood and breathe on it occa
sionally to help remove "any oiliness
that may remain. A very little flour
rubbed with the grain of the wood
will also help remove oiliness, but its

Will This Child, Adopted at Direction of Ouija-

mean that the infant is receiving the
first dim communication from her
For several years the ouija-board
writings of Patience Worth have
been coming to Mrs. Curran. Pa-
