Starting as a member of the beauty brigade in Ziegfeld's Follies, she climbed to the role of a principal, then to star. She retired from the sta/;e to marry Lawrence Weber, a New York millionaire. After the birth of her son, she decided she could combine the activities of a wife and i mother with the strenuous life of a I motion picture star, and now she is appearing in the picturization of "The Blue Pearl." "I would rather be known as a good cook and a good mother than to be the greatest actress in the I world." she says. "The most suc cessful thins: I do is baking bread.

Most of us are caught in the mad rush and j^H the papers are printing . only eighteen more shopping days until Christmas. Other less fortunate ones haven't even discovered yet that they are caught. In other words nearly every one has waited to do his Christmas chopping in the last month and the stores are crowded to overflowing every afternoon and evening. It is really almost wicked, when we stop to consider all of the extra work placed upon the people em ployed in stores where Christmas gifts are sold. At the hour of the day when they are already tired the aisles are swarming with cross, equally as tired and thoughtless shoppers, anxious to buy or to seek what they eventually will purchase. There is only one solution and that is to invade the inner regions of the stores during the early morning hours. Even up to 11:30 the counters are practically deserted and shopping for the time being is perfectly possible, but time will even detract from this advantage. So let's begin now or finish now and all who can should start out bright and early and give the girls who work during the day an opportunity to get busy, -<00. Tlrw Queries.

The McClure Newspaper Syndicate) One day Uncle Wiggily put a gallon of gasoline In his auto, which he had not used in some time, and soon he was riding in it down the a now-cover ed road. "Where are you going. Samiriie?" asked Uncle Wiggily. as the little bunny chap Jumped out in his path. "I'm going to pchool," Sammle answered. ??Hop up and I'll gIre you a ride/' offered the bunny gentleman. So 8am mie hopped up. and Mr. Longears tried to start the auto again, but it wouldn't go. Then Uncle Wiggily looked at the flippum-flappum, and he saw right away what was the matter. "It needs a piece of wire tied around It," he said. "But?oh. dear! I haven't a bit of wire. I'm afraid." ?'I have some." spoke Sammie. and then the rabbit boy put his paw in his right side front pocket and pulled out a bit of wire. Uncle Wiggily and Sammie rode along a bit farther, when, all of a sudden, there came a strong puff of wind, and it blew Uncle Wlggily's tall silk hat off his head, and down In a deep hole, like a well, or cistern. Then Sammie put his paw in his left side front pocket and pulled out a piece of string. "We can lower that down the hoi" and get your hat. Uncle Wiggily." said the bunny boy. He then took from his right side pocket a fish hook, stuck in a cork. The hook was tied to the string, and from another pocket Sammie took * nail, which was tied to the string for a sinker. Then it was lowered into the hole, the hook caught in Uncle Wiggily's hat, and it was soon pulled up so the bunny could wear it again. "My! If it wasn't for the things you carry I'd be in a peck of trouble." wild Uncle Wiggily to Sammie. "It's a good thing you have plenty of pock ets." "I guess it is!" laughed Sammie. Which all goes to show that It pays to save things even for a long tim? for a stitch in time saves nine. And If the cat doe.-m't run off with the diFhrag I'll tell you next about Uncle Wiggily and Susie's muff. WHY HANDKERCHIEFS WERE MADE SQUARE Handkerchiefs were not always j square. There was a time when , they were mad"* in various shapes to suit the user's fancy. But tills displeased Queen Marie Antoinette.1 according to historic gossip. Following her suggestion that good I taste would be shown by a uniform < shape Ixvuls XT issued a d<^ree in i 17ST? that all pocket handkedchiefs I have right-angle edges. A PUFF IN DISGUISE. The eommon powder puff may be! made into a small gift of real dain tiness. A stick much like the all day sucker stick of childhood cov ered with rainbow-shaded ribbon twisted around its length is fas tened to the puff. Then over the outside of the puff sew more rain bow ribbon adorned with tiny silk flowers. The decorative quality of the ribbon is rivaled by the useful ness of the stick. HOROSCOPE. Thumday. December 4, 1010. (Copyright. 1919, by the McQure Nn?n*i? Syndicate.) According to astrologers this is not a fortunate day, for Mercury. Venus, Saturn and Uranus are all advene. I'nder this conflguratron depressing and alarming rumors are likely to be prevalent and to affect business af fairs. It is an exceedingly unfavorable sway for the stock market or for finaneiai enterprises. During this sway the mind should be safeguarded against despondency and discouragement, for it marks the transition of what is established to new conditions. Saturn again bodes 111 for the aged and for all that the past represents. The government of the stars seems to foreshadow the greatest distortion of mental viewpoints and the most serious results. Uranus is in a place supposed to have a very sinister effec? upon the mind which is peculiarly susceptible to self deception. A great fire of incendiary origin is prognosticated and it will incur im mense property loss as well as loss of life. There is a sign read as affecting college-bred men and women, or the so-called intellectuals who will be come involved in difficulties affecting the industrial situation. Saturn is in a place menacing to mines and miners. During this direc tion of the planet there may be in tensified troubles that exist beneath the surface of the earth. This would seem to presage some sort of acci dent or explosion. Neptune and Jupiter conjoined in the third house denote continued trou ble in railway and postal matters. In the midst of labor agitation and industrial disturbances the arts will have a decided impulse this winter, the seers declare. Persons whose birthdate it is should guard against possible illness. Changes and new friends are forecast. Children born on this day may be incl.ned to be careless and unsettled. They should be taught habits of tidy ness and thrift. Hotsl Lcwcrs Prices. Chicago.
