Quantity, Not Quality, in Jewelry
BY MARY -MARSHALB
Every so often, according to the
: tudents of ever-changing fashions,
' • .ninine favor swerves front Jewelry
iiiat is intrinsically valuable, anti
therefore of necessity often limited
i display, to that which is showy
• !,d effective regardless of its intrin
« i« value.
•fust at present we are living
. irough such a period. The woman
ho prefers a single small diamond
< i.conspicuously set in a gold brooch
"a really effective pin of good work,
nanship but no great inherent value
ems old fashioned and rather prosy,
ne good-natured father of the young
: rl today decides that he will give
"s daughter a bit of Jewelry worth,
i u> say. two or three hundred dol
ls. and he decides that he will let
■ r select a ring — let us say a modest
aby between two small but good
oiamonds. That is the father's idea
“t a good investment. He has been
brought up to feel that a “Teal lady”
wears jewelry according to her
means. If she has but a single orna
ment. that is of the, best of its sort.
But what of the young girl. “if
it s all the same to you. old dear."
sa >'s.-’T’ll take a check for the
and get what I want as I need it.
s rather nice to have a special fund
; " r jewelry and not to have to buy it
■i om one’s dress allowance. Then
" lien you need a new pair of car
rings cr a chain or bracelet with a
>icw frock you know how to get it.
Ilight now I need some jade pend
ant earrings for my new white din
* tier gown, and a pear choker brace*
•t. earring necklace set for Mary’s
■" edding. and ”
The father interrupts, it is only
S’lbO. he protests—not a hundred thou
sand, Then the daughter initiates
him into the present-day fad in jew
• Iry. Nickel jewelry really is smarter
than anything else at present. Cut
set! ornaments are preferred to
i hose of real diamonds. One wears a
new bandeau and earring set only
’’or a season. So why have it cost
more than sls? Why split hairs with
i jewelry salesman over the realness
of a set of jade, if the bracelet or
necklace or earrings happen to be
just what you want?

• Answering Back.
“What am I to do to make the child
stop answering back? I cannot, even
say. ‘Where is your sweater this morn
ing?’ without his saying something
back.’’
Try not saying anything at all for
* a while. Keep so silent that he will
long for the sound of your voice.
It has been too much for him ami lie
is defending himself against it. Tour
•words may be the words of prophesy,
but to him they are weariness and a
burden.
You are afraid if you do not con
tinually admonish him that he will
make mistakes. Dins your constant
poking keep him from them? Doesn't j
In' make almost as many as the day’s j
span will allow? And isn’t the most I
, important one something that you 1
hadn’t thought to tell him about at all?
In this job of child training the ad
monition. "I.et your communications be
yea, yea. nay. nay: more cometh of
evil,” is priceless. A few weeks heed
ing of it will bring peace to many a
sto¥my household.
Usually it is the adolescent child who
answers back. He wants to be self
eontrolling and dislikes being reminded
that he is not. His furious lire of re
tort is merely a defense against the
thought that he is not his own master.
Pie has to relieve his sore self-pride,
and asserting his individuality helps
him to believe that he is holding his
« own in a struggle against the oppres
sion of authority.
But before a child can answer back
something has to be said and the man
ner of saying pitches the tone of the
answer. It is the attitude behind the

I somehow his self-pride has been wound
j ed and lie has brooded over the affront
1 until he felt too much abused to stand !
for another word. That accounts for
the unexpected discourtesy of some of
the back talk.
The adolescent is a personality-—a.
prickly, disconcerting personality that i
has to be reckoned with. If he were i
his Uncle Joseph, sixty-five years old 1
and crotchety and tart and given to
calling a spade a spade, you would have
to keep still and bear with him,
wouldn’t you? The best you could hope
for would be to catch him in a pleasant
moment and get a delicate hint neat- ;
ly placed. How you would congratu- ;

i maey. The adolscent needs just as much j
; of the same qualities to salve his sore
j soul and is in far greater need of them j
; than old Uncle Joseph, who enjoys j
■ making people wiggle.
! Silence is a fine treatment for the j
i quick-tongued child. He is never to!
be slapped. You can readily see that |
when it is ids wounded self-esteem that
is making him talk disrespectfully,
slapping him and scolding him public
ly would only make the state worse.
Try keeping silent until he asks. “Mom,
which sweater siiail I wear?” and then
say in your best guest voice, “I’m sure
I don’t know. Which do you think? ,
What sort of day is it outside? Bet
ter take a sample of the air on the
north porch.”
You’ve salved his dignity and he will
be quite ready to wear the darned gray
sweater and save the whole one for
later on. as you wished, but as you
were too wise to say. Flatter his in
telligence a hit and talk to him as
though you actually respected him. and
I have a notion that he will return that
attitude of respect.

j to see their homes when they were
j built. But even these were so intent
j on what they were doing that none
thought to watch out for spies. And
so if was that no one noticed Chat
terer the Red Squirrel hiding in the
old stonewall.
It was a handy place, that old
stonewall. Almost anywhere along
its whole length. Chatterer could
whisk out of sight in an instant. He
could peep out from between, the big
stones and see what was going on
without danger of himself being seen.
He had discovered Welcome Robin’s
nest at once. He had chuckled wick
edly and had licked his lips, but he
had not visited the nest. It could

i wait. If he visited the nest he would
I be sure to be seen, and then all the
rest of the feathered folk would be on
guard. So Chatterer put all thought
of Welcome Rabin’s nest out of his
head for the time being, and spent
his time spying on the other people.
He saw Mrs. Goldenwing the Flick
er disappear in a hole in the trunk of
a tree very near the old stonewall.
His eyes snapped with wicked joy.
That hole was plenty big enough for
him to get in and out of without any
trouble at all. His mouth watered as
he thought of Mrs. Flicker's eggs.
They would be something worth
while. They would be big as eggs in
the Old Orchard go, and there would
be sure to be enough of them to make
a good meal.
He saw Jenny Wren carrying a
stick into a little house in one of the
trees. This house was hung from a
branch. The discovery didn’t please
Chatterer at all. He couldn't get into
that house. “Never mind,’’ he mut
tered, "Jenny Wren’s eggs are so
small that they wouldn’t give me
much more than a taste anyway. I
j wonder where Winsome Bluebird's
i home is this spring?”
It took him quite a while to find
I out, but at last he discovered Mrs.
| Bluebird’s head in the doorway of an
| other house, a house that was on the
top of a slender, iron pole. Chatterer
i ground his teeth with rage. He
cculdn’t climb that pole. Mrs. Blue
bird’s eggs were safe. “No use wast
ing time here,” muttered Chatterer.
•‘Never mind, there are bound to be
plenty of others. Hello! There's Mrs.
Jay with a twig in her mouth! I cer
tainly would like to get even with
Sammy Jay, and If I can find that

Bright and early in the morning
after they had decided to play mak
ing a movie, the Cut-outs were out
in the back yard, which was to be the
"lot,” as the movie people eail the
jjiace they make pictures. Mack, who
was to be cameraman, wore a pair of
old blue overalls and an old white
shirt. He was busy with hammer
and nails fixing up the packing box
stage where the scenery for their
movie would be set up.
’’But what’s the play to be about?”
teased Nancy, who tagged after him.
“Well, you just wait and see.” an
swered Mack importantly. “Today
we’ll get the scenery ready and then
tomorrow we’ll start the movie.”
What Today Means to You
IIV MARY BLAKE.
Taurus.
Until noon, today’s aspects favor
business, especially when related to
real estate, produce or mines. It is
also an auspicious time for disposing
of matters that have been “hanging
fire.” After noon, however, only rou
tine and minor occupations should en
gage your attention. *
A child born today will not be very
robust in youth, but promises to de
velop strength and health after the
adolescent period. Its character will
be somewhat weak, and it must be
taught at the very earliest period the
benefits of truth and courage, so that
in later life it will he healthy and
strong, not only physically but also
spiritually.
If today is jour birthday, you are
general!.' care-free and easy-going.
Your friends are legion “whilst the
going is good.” They are. however,
bard to find when your affairs cease
to prosper and your.condition fails to
flourish. You have a very genial dis.
i position and arc kindly disposed to-
I ward the world in general, and your j
| friends and associates in particular,
i There is something lacking, however,
| and you rarely attract to yourself the
friend indeed who will prove a friend
in need.
Living only in the present, without
taking thought of tomorrow, is the
path of least resistance, and you only
wake up when you realize that your
thriftlcssness has landed you on the
rocks. This does not only apply to
money matters, but you are thriftless
in friendships, health and time. You
take too much for granted. You think
j’our present material circumstances
will continue unchanged, your friends
endure, your health never be ad
versely affected, and that there will
always be time for everything.
Excessive i anxiety over the future
is just as calamitous as having no
thought at all for tomorrow. There
is a middle course which you can
adopt which will in the long run
prove beneficial not only to you but
to those around you. No one need be
niggardly either with time or money
in order to be thrifty of both.
Well known persons born on this
date are William G. Fargo, organizer
of the Wells-Fargo Express; John
Swinburne, physician; George W.

DOROTHY DIX’S LETTER BOX
f low About Advertising for a Matrimonial Part
ner?—Can You Train a Waster Husband
to Be Money-Wise?
j~jEAR MISS DIX: I am a middle-aged man and a widower. 1 am very
lonely and I wish to marry again, but I am situated so I never meet any
women. Go to work early every morning, back home every evening, supper
and bed. That is my program, year in and year out.
Now advertise for everything else that we want in our local papers.
Why T shouldn’t people be able to advertise for a husband or wife, stating
just what they wish? I believe that thousands of people could get good
husbands and wives that way. LONESOME WIDOWUR.
Answer: Perhaps you are right. Certainly middle-aged people, who do
not go around very much, and have few acquaintances, have small chance
io meet the kind of men and women that would make them good husbands
and wives.
Married people who do not go much In society are apt to narrow their
circle down to a very few intimate friends, and so when either a husband
or a wife dies, the widow or the widower finds that ho or she knows
virtually no one but married couples, and that the chances of remarrying
are very small.
Undoubtedly an attractively worded advertisement would bring to any
man or woman many seekers after soft matrimonial jobs, but the scheme
is fraught with danger. The chances are that most of the applicants would
be frauds —men and women who were lazj - , and who prefer to marrj' for a
living rather than work for one—men and women who are so undesirable
that no one wanted them where they arc known.
Besides, the applicant who might fill the bill and come up to all outward
requirements might yet lack inward quality that would make him or her
a good husband or wife. A man might be honest, industrious and sober, and
yet be cruel and brutal in his nature. A woman might be virtuous and
thrifty and a good housekeeper, yet have the temper of a virago. Every
character reference that a man or woman gave might be O. K., and yet the
disposition lie so mean and cantankerous that it would make miserable
whoever had to live with it.
It is never safe to marry any one who is a stranger to you. You
have to know an individual long and well before you can form anj’ idea
as to whether he or she would prove a good yokemate. And even then
you often guess wrong. So the idea of ,getting a husband or wife by
advertising - for one is a risky experiment that I do not advise you to trj-

INEAR DOROTHY DIX; 1 am married to a man whom T love very dearly
1 and w ho is ev cry thing that is good and kind to me. but lie lias no money
sense. lie is clever and popular and makes a tine income, which lie throws
-way. In foolish extravagance. We are always in debt and never have
anj thing worth while, ,vly husband will blow in money on utter foolishness
when we are being hounded to pay our bills. 1 was' raised to be careful
V* money, and to pay- as I went, and it mortifies me to deatli to owe shop
keepers. W hat can I do about it? How ean I make my husband see as J
do that we arc not only living foolishly but dishonestly? MRS. A. B. U.
Answer; There isn’t very much that you can do with a waster my
dear. There is something wrong with a man’s brain when lie can’t see the
true relation of money to life, and realize that the spendthrift is just as
much a. thief as the pickpocket For the man who buys things from a
■J‘Z V sor t th r n > ha -" robbed the merchant just as much as
if he had pilfered the goods from the shelves
As long as you owe another man a dollar the money is his, and you have
no right to use it tor your own pleasure. Moreover, sooner or later theVainv
day comes to every one and the man who has made no provision for it
becomes a burden upon the thrifty Often little children and old people are
deprived of the very necessities of life because some extravagant man or
woman, who has wasted his or her substance in riotous living has to 1.
taken care of. ” J I
-
Therefore, it becomes our dutj - not only to earn money. but to use it
wisely and well, and to take care of it in order that we may not defraud
others. No man is really honest who doesn't do this. Being generous !
doesn’t compensate for being unjust. It is a poor and cheap vanity that
makes a man spend money like a prince and put off paving the washer-'
woman.
The position of the wife of the spender is a difficult one because she is I
i always the one who has to stand off tin- bill collector. She has the liumilia-
I lion of asking for credit She has the fear of the future always before
i Iter, and she can rarely make her husband listen to reason. He ridicules
her efforts to save as miserliness. He calls her a tightwad when she wants
to live within their income. He resents her warnings as preaching and if
she will not let nim spend money on her he spends it on the women who
will praise him for his generosity-, instead of lecturing him for his
extravagance.
About the only thing the wife of a spender can do is to trv to influence
her husband to spend on something of real value because money will always
burn in his pocket. He .can’t keep it. but sometimes he can he induced ‘to
put it in something that will be a good investment later on.

Noted Physician and Author.
A Little Salve.
This is one of a series of chats
we’re broadcasting from this station
on the medicine cupboard. Today we
will take up petrolatum and old doc
ointment.
Petrolatum is the official name for
ordinary- petroleum jelly. That’s soft
p. trolatum. There is a hard petrola
tum and a liquid petrolatum—the lat
ter commonly known as paraffin oil
or purified mineral oil or American
or Russian oil. Petrolatum is a neu
tral ointment base, softening, sooth
ing, protective, harmless internally
or externally. We have described its
use in the first-aid dressing of wounds
and bums. It should be kept in the
medicine cupboard in a collapsible
tube or in very small boxes, for
cleanliness.
Old doe salve is a fine all-around
salve for burns, sunburn and innu
merable irritations, itehings, smart
ings and inflammations which call for
a local medicament. Here is the
recipe for it; Zinc oxide, 20 grains:
boric acid. 20 grains; benzoin. JO
grains; oil of rosemary, 5 drops:
lanolin. 0 drams; petrolatum, enough
to make one ounce.
The salve should be put in col
lapsible tubes. Os course it doesn’t
heal anything. No ointment or salve
does. But it gives great satisfaction
as an all-around soothing salve and.
if my expert opinion means anything
to y-iou. I can tell you old doc salve
will go as far as anything can to
Shopping for the June Bride
BT MRS. HABIANO H. ALLEN.
Electric Equipment.
The June bride is a very enthusi
astic shopper for electrical equip
ment. Her enthusiasm is twofold,
whether she is conscious of it or not.
First, there is the sentimental appeal
of the great variety of table cooking
accessories now on the market. .And.
then, every truly modern bride is
already acquainted with the youth
preserving possibilities in electric
power machinery for the household
work.
The electrical iron will probably
prove to be the most essential of all
the electric appliances in the new
home. It should be a medium heavy
one, since, unlike the old-time sad
iron, which was heated on the range,
it does not need to be carried about
continually. The heavier the Iron the
less pressure is required to accom
plish its work.
The best test for a satisfactory elec
tric iron is that for "heat distribu
tion." Ask your dealer -to demon
strate various makes by heating and
applying to smooth paper. If the
scorched surface is evenly browned,
heat distribution is probably good.
If splotchy, the iron will be inferior
in its work and expensive to operate.
Since ironliig Is particularly hard on
the electric cord, it pays to buy one
that is well made and durable. See,
too, that your iron is of the correct
voltage to use on the current sup
plied to the new house.
An electric washing machine is by
all means to be added to the list, if
that ■is possible. The smallness of
living quarters or the lack of a base
ment need not preclude it any more,
for the small “table-top” machine* In
almost any shape, can be foqnd .to fit
into even a kitchenette. In choosing
an electric washer, see <h 1 1 : j>e •>jot'>.
keep you out of mischief while lh<
healing is going on and. incidentally,
it may save you some money if you
are in the habit of “trying” salves!
The next item in the medicine cup
board is liniment. We have aireadv
described the advantages of home
made camphorated oil as a liniment.
In addition it is well to have a tube
of what is generally known as
anageisic balm on hand, the formula
of which is usually about, as follows:
Menthol, 3 grains; oil of wintergroen.
20 drops; extract of belladonna, 20
grains: lanolin, ti drams; petrolatum,
2 drams; fluid extract of capsicum.
20 drops.
This, too. should be kept in a col
lapsible tube and it should be kept
away from the eyes when one rubs it
over a neuralgic area; also the fingers
must be kept away from the eyes
after using the solidified liniment.'
Dispute as to advisability of using
water in which spinach has been
cooked. Mrs. A. washes, chops spin
ach and cooks as a soup with con
siderable water. When it is cold she
adds two tabiespoonfuis of sour 1
cream and serves. Mrs. B. insists -
that the water in which spinach has ;
been cooked contains a dangerous
poison and should be thrown awav ;
—(D. R. M.) ' |
Answer—The water contains no
poison, but does contain some of the j
valuable, mineral food from the
spinach and should, therefore, bo
utilized as food. This applies also
to the water in which any other veg
etable Is cooked.

is located where it will not spatter
with water easily. And don’t let the
different "types” bewilder you. No
one of them is better than all the
rest for every purpose. Some of them
are more vigorous in their cleansing
methods than the others. Watch for
that. If your principal problem is
going to be cleaning of heavy, per
spiration-laden clothing, then you
want a machine of this kind. But if
your concern is largely for the fate of
fine linens and dainty underwear, it
is better to choose a machine which
may be slower in getting results but
will be less severe on the fabrics.
Another "indispensable” is the
vacuum cleaner. Don’t get one so
heavy it will be a burden to carry
around. And be your own judge as to

The bride who chooses an electric
sewing machine in her first equipment
will be wise. If there is to be a sew
ing room, this may be a full size ma
chine of any design. If not, then per
haps a console table or one of the
many successful folding outfits which
can be closed up almost instantly find
set In a closet. Few women who
haven’t used them will realize what
a saving in time, as well as energy,
the power sewing machine will be.
Electric equipment in any home
means comfort in that home. And
there is a host of the smaller things,
like dishwashers, fans, percolators,
grills, toasters, tea kettles, etc., which,
once appreciated, will never be done
without.

Nothing is more impressive than to
observe the regularity of nature.
How evenly (with minor and occa
sional variations) the seasons come
round;
Kor one who knows how to watch
them the birds return each spring
with a precision that is marvelous to
consider.
No one has ever adequately ex-
I plained the astonishing phenomenon
'of migration, though many have ob
j served it.
The prophet Jeremiah in the sev
-1 entii century I! •'. makes one of the
I < artiest literary references to it.
j He perceives that the birds come
j obcdienly to some great law of tin ir
i being; and with their obedience

I which ought to he equally written in
their nature.
Just as the birds return in accord
w ith the mysterious summons of nat
ural law. so ought men to move with
pn ision and unanimity according to
the law of God.
Why is it that we will insist on
having our own way and asserting
the right of each moral being to
br-ak the law of God?
What can be the outcome of such
conduct but injury to ourselves and
others?
What chaos it would introduce into
the delicate balance of nature if the
doves suddenly rebelled against their
call to migration!
And what chaos we are continually
introducing into the delicate adjust
