On Sale At Your COUNTY LIQUOR STORE Beauty Treatment Is Incomplete Without Care of Eyes I < By Jean Prentice t ___ irp HE fact that proper lighting en ables us to sec better should be .ample reason for having it. But 'there’s a further reason than that; proper illumination actually helps us to look better. Those eye wrinkles • that come from continued squinting and eyestrain don’t have much chance to form when the light is 'glareless and abundant. The question is, however, how to obtain this kind of light conveniently • and economically? Well, let’s take a typical case; that of the attractive lady in the picture. The nun.jers and lines on the il lustration have 'been placed there to help you visualize the relationship between lamps, the position of the eye work and the amount of light as it would be shown by a light meter. By actual measurement it has been '.proved that when a good-sized table :is used for a lamp beside a fairly large comfortable chair, there will be ‘approximately 32 inches between the lamp and the eye work. Utilize Light Effectively ' When sitting in the average chair, the book or eye work is held about iuO inches from the floor. Under such conditions it is found that 150-watts, or two 75-watt bulbs are needed in ,the table lamp to obtain on the task the desired amount of light for aver age eye work — approximately 25 ffoot-candles. (The foot candle, you know, is the unit of measurement of ^illumination intensity.) One bulb may of course be turned off when •eye work gives way to conversation, and still hold the charm of this 'grouping. Th: lamp shade, you’ll notice, has a white lining, a very desirable virtue if we want to utilize the light most effectively. It is tall enough to throw a generous circle of light so that our lady doesn’t have to hug close to the Tignor—Dunn The following announcement has been sent to out of town friends: Mr. and Mrs. Walter Dunn announce the marriage of their daughter, Dollie Arrington, to Mr. Thomas Walter Tignor on Thurs day the twenty-eighth of Novem ber, nineteen hundred and thirty five, Enfield, North Carolina. $10,000,000 FROM THESE INVENTIONS i AN inexpensive article which > meets an every-day need of millions of people stands a far bet-’ ter chance of profiting the inven tor than an invention which, how ever important, calls for a revolu tionary change in industry or living habits, according to the Inventor’s Foundation, New York City In cooperation with New York Uni versity, the International Corre spondence Schools, and Stevens Institute of Technology, the Foun-| dation is organized to provide in ventors with authoritative Informa tion on inventing, patenting and the marketing of inventions.
