Xo-day, when machine-spun cloth is so much better and cheaper, no one would think of wearing homespun. Many people are still using hand-mixed paint, however, because they do not know that rr7 T(C The Guaranteed UH. V WIl, Lead and Zinc Paint Fewer Gallons Wears Longer i will save them money and labor. Devoe Lead and Zinc Paint is made of the x same ingredients the old-time painter used: Pure White Lead, Pure White Zinc, and Pure Linseed Oil. The only difference is that Devoe is mixed by machinery, 1000 gallons at a time. Therefore, it is always absolutely uniform in strength, ;co!or and covering capacity. "We guarantee Devoe Lead and Zinc Paint T to be pure. We know it contains no whit ing, silica or other worthless materials.

Pear- son of San Diego, California, sums up his experience with Neolin Soles. Mr. Pearson had two pairs of shoes re soled with Neolin Soles, and after wearing them for twenty months writes "I will have to get .new shoes sometime, .but so far as the soles are concerned, that time seems as far distant as when they were new." This is typical of the experience millions are having with Neolin Soles. Created by Science to be durable, flexible and waterproof, these soles are an important factor in cutting shoe expense. You can get them on new shoes for the whole family, and for re-soling. -They are made by The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Akron, Ohio, who also make Wingfoot Heels guaranteed to outwear" all other heels. n Iff Tiada Hark Res.

THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS Written for THE INDEPENDENT by Robert H. Welch, Jr. Seers and bards who guess the future use but knowledge of the past, Man, not miracles or fortune, makes his own fate, first and last; We meet problems that our fathers met and solved and we can learn From their wisdom and their folly, lessons which we should not spurn, How to meet the same conditions which in different guise return. Scarce one century has passed since, our union, now so strong, Was opposed at its adoption, argued and debated long. Some there were who favored any plan except the one in hand, Some who thought that union could but bring oppression on the land, Some who thought that all was vain, that central power could not stand. Others still, and these more selfish, were afraid it might succeed, Feelingless these petty thinkers for a country in its need, Each unwilling that his state should yield one jot of sover eign power In the cause of peace and order, lest in some more quiet hour They should suffer from a weed which was planted as a flower. Now we have the same great question argued in a larger field, Shall our country for the world something of its power yield? Still the enemies of union, who are enemies opeace, Strive against the League of Nations, willing they that war increase Rather than America's now outgrown isolation cease. Let us leave this selfish doctrine, join the world and do our part, As in war, so now in peace, give a willing hand and heart, Do our share to keep the spirit of united man in motion, Men with mortal hopes and fears live on both sides of the ocean; To our flag we owe allegiance, to humanity devotion. MANTEO MAN TAKEN IN BY SAILORS IN NORFOLK Bijt He Recovered His Roll After an Exciting Chase In Which Detective Took a Foot How George O'Neal, of Manteo, Dare county, came near losing his wad in Norfolk the other night is entertain ingly told by the Virginian-Pilot. That paper's account follows: Yesterday George decided that he would like to spend the day in a real city, so he comes to Norfolk with a roll of $341.89 in greenbacks and checks in his breast pocket and starts in to see the sights. - m Now O'Neal was unfamiliar with the byways of Norfolk, and was in a bad way to see the real sights by his lone some, having ventured no further than the shops along East Main street. So it was no wonder that when two pleasant faced boys in the navy uni form of Uncle Sam's navy fell in with O'Neal and vouchsafed the information that they too were from the land of the long leaf pine, he was down right glad to see them and accepted with alarcity their invitation to show him over the city. The sightseeing tour ended, however, one block from where it began, when one of the sailor lads, Euprehiam Dixon by name, is alleged to have snatched George's entire roll, while the latter was watching the ferry boat come in, and sprinted up King's Lane with his pal, James C. Swain at his heels. O'Neal gave chase, but what chance did he have against two athletic young fellows from the navy. The gobs were gaining at every jump when around the corner came Sleuth TJnwit7kv munchinsr a auid of "ArDle". . and looking for a kid whom he wanted for larcenv.

SAVING BEATS EARNING: TOO BAD ESAU DIDN'T LIVE TO ENJOY IT ALU If Esau and Jacob who lived some six thousand years ago, were still alive, and if Esau had earned $10 every day, and had saved it all, he would have $21,900,000. On the other hand, if Jacob had deposited $1 at 1 per cent, interest, compounded every 100 years, he would hava today $576,460,752,303,423,488. Can anyone figure out how much Jacob would have had had he purchased one $5 War Sav ing Stamp then, which pays in terest at the rate of 4 per cent., compounded four times every year? There is an idea in all this: How much would every child have if its parents should start it out with a $5 stamp, and then encourage the youngsters to save? Daily Thought.
