dug where the water ls shallowrand"
into this is crammed a. bag of dry rice,

"Luck, as wlU. readily "oe understood,
is ? factor that enters^ very largely
into golf Perhaps the' most' notable
case on record ls that pf Jamie An-,
derson when competing for the cham
pionship at Prestwick in 1878. He had
just teed his ball for the seventeenth
drive when a little girl standing
among the spectators remarked that
he'had unconsciously placed it j dst in
front of the proper line. Although
nobody else had noticed the fact this
proved on examination by the referee
td be correct Thereupon Anderson
teed his ball again in a fresh position
well behind the line and made a drive^
which landed him in the hole and'
eventually enabled him to win the
match. .If, Jhowever,-he had played 'If
from the original spot he would have
been penalized a stroke and have lost
the championship. Clearly, then, luck
on the links is something to be taken
into consideration whatever nonbeliev

Get a small vial of clear glass and
into it put a piece of phosphorus
about the size of a pea. Then pour In

again and then replace it as before. In

which they have their stores,
and every good citizen will help
them to get it."
Did you ever see a FINE LARGE
FACT so simply stated?
S Last, month a merchant a thousand
miles from Chicago wanted to place
over his stor^-ai?-^elect?c^'ltghtr^I^''.
he had heard ?oo?t in Chicago. Made
a special trip there fer specifications
and terms. Too "high!
Mr. Merchant returned home and in
cidentally- told the local electrician
about his troubles. Mr. Home Electri
cian replied that he could reproduce
the Chicago' sign,, .with improvements,
at a price-that suited. " And he did so.
