Manufacturer Wishes to Cuild In Neat

Auto Running Into Drove of Pigs.
Hit Confidence In Town Is Lost.
By JAMES SCHREIBER. Jr.
My friend, a glove manufacturer.
•nas about to vacate a building in a
large city where he had become
cramped for room through increased
business. He told me he desired to
locate iv a small town not too far
from the city, a place in which his ex
pert workmen would be likely to stay
after he got them there.
"Why don't you try Neattown?" I
"Neattown!" he cried as he threw
his hands up in horror. "Ncattown!
"Why, my dear man, I wnnt to keep

"Yes. just the place," he answered.
"I've had enough of Neattown to want
to build my factory elsewhere."
"Why are you so sot against Noat
towu? Surely, as its uame implies
jind as you know, if you have ever
been there, it is one of the prettiest
towns this side of the AJleghenies and
would lie an ideal place for your busi

"When I first discovered that my
business was too large for its present
quarters 1 looked around for a small
town in which to put up a building of
suitable proportions. I was favorably
impressed with the neatness and con
veniences of Neattown and decided to
auto up there and select a site.
"I struck the phue early iv the after
noon. The day was ideal, and the
town showed out to the best advan
tage. It was indeed pleasing, and I
Rt once made up my mind to locate
'"Hiding down the principal street. I
■was admiring the beautiful edifice used
by the Methodists of the town when I
was startled by Innumerable squeaks
and a severe Jolting of my machine,
which caused me to lose control of the
steering wheel. The auto was smash
ed up against a tree, and I—well, when
1 came out of the hospital I swore eter
nal vengeance against Neattown.
"I discovered 1 had run down a
drove of pigs. Think of it-pigs on the
principal highway of a town:"
Iv this little story fictitious names
are used, but the event really occurred
and In a town where civic pride was
taught in the schools.
Of all the advertisers a town has—ev
ery visitor is an advertiser—the auto
mobilist is about the best.
He may whirl through at the limit of
speed the taw allows or may stop to
patronise a local merchant "or be on
business bent. Whatever he sees in
that town or if any thine unusual oc
curs, whether good or bad. he is likely
to speak of it to his friends. If it's
pood that's what you want and must
work for. but if it is against the towu,
a 1 tout its lack of civic pride or its bad
roads, then that town suffers.
Why should the live stock be allowed
to be a hindrance to the autoist? 1 toes
It benefit the cattle, the pigs or the
•poultry to run loose on the public high
way? They can be better fed aud re
ceive closer attention if they are held
in bounds. Have chickens, go;;t<.
cows if you wish, but also have a place
where you can corral them, keeping
them off the roads. Why destroy a

The highway must be safe to the

NEIL AIR BEDDING,
Recipes For Various Things Helpfu!
Why is it that so many housekeep
ers who sec to ii thai their houses arc
spotlessly clean, with nary ;i speck
of dust <;r mud, *!'• not appreciate the
value of clean, fresh air iv the home?
In the summer, when one la ulad

seems to think if the bedroom win

morning this will supply enough of

for the day.
To begin at the bedroom, it is the
idea of mosi housewives that to turn
the bed covers back for a few minutes
before the open window* will sufficient
ly air the bed. And so it is the idea
of many of us. But the covers should
be taken completely off the bed and
spread over two chairs by the window
and the mattress turned back. These
should fie aired all morning before
making the bed. Every window in the
room should be opened, and, in fact,
one window should be partly open all
the time except when a storm would
At night the clothes should not be
allowed to he in a heap where they
have been carelessly thrown, but each
garment should be separated from the
others and hung on a clothes tree near
a window where the night air will
blow on them, which, contrary to pop
ular superstition, is not injurious, but
In the kitchen the frequent opening
of the outer door generally lets in suf
ficient fresh air. but the living room
is a different matter. The best plan
Is to have the carpenter make a two
Inch board to fit across the outer sill
so that when the sash is closed down
It meets the board. In this way there
will be a space between the upper and
lower sash in the middle of the win
dow, which will permit of sufficient
fresh air entering. If varnished the
same as the other woodwork tin's will
not mar the appearance of the window.
To Remodel Last Winter's Frock.
In nmst wardrobes there are frocks
the materials of which are up to date,
but tlif style :i bit passe, which the
average woman cannot afford to throw
away. Here is an Idea for bringing

of bias satin is arranged at the edge
of the skirt and a similar band above
the knees. Between these points of
vantage are narrow quillings of the
satin, with here and there decorative
pump bow.s of the same material. The
hlph satin girdle, edged top and bot
tom, with quillings, almost covers the
lower part of the surpliced bodice,
which is trimmed with the plaitings,
rovers and chemisette of Irish lace.
The sleeves are of the three materials.
The small seamstress could accom
plish such a rejuvenation in a couple
of days, and with little expense a
smart costume will result
