HINTS FOR CHRI3TMA8 GIFTS
Some of the season' latest novel
tles are very easily made, and will
prove moat acceptable nollday gifts.
These inspirations are new and prac
tical. Take the illustration on the I
tgbt for Instance. This smart little ;
scarf will fl in anywhere this sea-.;
eon. Is adaptable for wear morning,
afternoon or evening. It is made of
very fine white serge, and embroid
ered in different shades of worsted.
The scarf is two and a half yards tii
length, and twelve inches wide. The

edge are made quite distinctive by
raveling out the material as a finish,
the sides to a depth of half an Inch,
and the enda one and'a half Inches.
The embroidery is done in Shetland
wool, and four or five shades are used
for contrast, and th diamond design
is a substantial pattern that is easy

Many of our "knitters" hare little
odds and ends of wool left from
sweaters and caps. An entirely new
'use can be found for them in mating
dress and sweater trimmings. Vividly
contrasting colors have been worn for
several seasons,1 and proved rery pop
ular, but now these colors are used
more as trimming on solid coloi
backgrounds. To present -one's best
girl friend with a set of knitted dia
tnonds, blocks or oblong pieces, would
endear her to the heart of the recip
ient, as the little trimming sets can
be used on scarfs,, hats, muffs, bags,
sweater skirts and blouses. Hat fan

GAS IN THE STOMACH
Physicians Recommend the Use of
Magnesia for Quick Relief.
Sufferer: from 'ndlgestlon or dys
pepsia should lemember that the
presence of gas or win in the stom
ach invariably indicates that the stom
ach is troubled by excessive acidity.
This acid causes the food to ferment
and the fermenting food in turn gives
rise to noxious gases which distend
the stomach, hamper the normal func
tions of vital Internal organs, cause
acute headaches, interfere with the
action of the heart, and charge the
Mood etream with deadly poisons,
which in time must ruin the health.
Physicians say fiat to quickly dispel
a dangerous accumulation of wind in
the stomach and to stop the food fer

it holds its charm; or maybe the
reason is to be found in the histor

vases and paintings, bronzes and
lacquerware bring with them over

Oriental art concentrated in a com

most any other city outside of San

Problem is Solved
Eat a banana a day!
Nolte's "strategy rtoard" has evolved
a scheme which If it materializes on a
broad scale is believed will provide the
solution for Hawaii's problem of pro
viding a market for its banana crop.
The "strategy board" has started
the ball a-rollinjc with the decision to
make every Thursday banana day at
Nolte's. When the member-? of the
board gather for luncheon that day
they will eat bananas and then pome
more bananas, with a plass of milk
and some corn bread on the side.
The idea was launched at yester
day's gathering and it appealed so for

heads together and under the lead of
J. M. Westgate figured out that if
every person on the island were to eat
one banana a day Hawaii's banana
crop would be taken care of without
worrying about ships to take it to
other markets. Not only that, but it
would be in line wih the food conser
vation movement and give impetus
to the movement to have the islands
produce their own foodstuffs.
As a warning to any un-American
merchants who might seize upon the
patriotic spirit of the movement to
boost prices It was decided to report
for official Investigation any dealer

WAR DECLARED ON
RATS BY U. S. GOV'T.
The government at Washington Is
preparing a campaign that should be
effective in killing the rats that are
so destructive both to lives and prop
erty. A conservative estimate places
the loss of foodstuffs from rats at
over two hundred million dollars an
nually, and in the present scarcity of
food, this loss n:ust be prevented. The
most efficient way to "Kill the Rat" is
by the use of Stearns Paste, and
thousands of dollars worth have been
bought by the government. Every
housekeeper troubled with rats, mice,
roaches or waterbugs should buy a
small box of this reliable exterminator
for thirty-five cents and stop further
