New Year Resolutions Studied BY LYDIA LE BARON WALKER. . The first week of the first, month of k new year has started. It presents possibilities that are intriguing, even to those who, with studied nonchal ance, brush aside the idea of New Year resolutions as absurd and so far out-of-date as to be "hark numbers" for any New Year program. It is im possible, however, to disassociate the beginning of a new year with the be ginnings of other things, and just as soon as we pin 4 any sort of work, campaign or schedule, we are. in a ■way, making New Year resolutions. We cannot lay plans without resolv ing to carry them out. Otherwise they JEVEX THOSE WHO BRUSH ASIDE THE IDEA OF' NEW YEAR RESO LUTIONS AS INSIGNIFICANT.

These plans may not mature as we desire, either from our own voli tion, because we abandon them for better ones; because we do not press forward with sufficient diligence to make them succeed: or for any of a thousand other reasons by which they •re frustrated. But do we abandon laying plans for these causes? And do we deliberately refrain from making beginnings the first of the year just because it is the first of a new year? Are we not consciously or unconsciously consider ing the Ist of this month as a. propi tious starting point for plans rather than a detrimental one? And are we not absolutely right in believing that new ideas and new plans and higher Ideals for the home as well as our selves have a certain stimulus when they are put into action at the start of a new historic era? We certainly appreciate that events are tabulated according to eras, and that years are divisional periods for calculations in world affairs. Why not make them marking points In our little worlds or mlcroscosms? There is certainly noth ing disadvantageous about such plans. Past Experience. It is when we permit ourselves to tie so discouraged by failures Yb keep fkith with ourselves in New.' Year's resolutions, so that we deliberately determine never to make any such resolutions, that we fall into error. It is not the plans that are poor. It Is not that the resolutions are at fault. BEDTIME STORIES VXS* The Leak in the Item, The leak today may nothing seem. Tomorrow it may flood the stream. —Paddy the Beaver. One who knows a very great deal •bout any one subject Is said to be an expert on that subject. Paddy the Beaver is an expert on' several things. He is an expert on cutting trees. He is an expert on building dams. He is an expert on making ponds. And he is an expert on leaks. Yes, sir, Paddy is •n expert on leaks. When Paddy and Mrs. Paddy retired for the winter they felt that they were thoroughly prepared for whatever \ • mgmr i A LEAK IX THE DAM, MY DEAR." might happen. The food pile was plenty big enough to carry them through to spring. Their house had been freshly plastered with mud and there was no worry that anything would or could happen to it. Their dam had been strengthened and put in perfect condition. Ajl this was done before the coming of Jack Frost to make ice. When at last Jack Frost did cover their ponds with ice, Paddy and Mrs. Paddy retired to their house prepared to enjoy the long rest which they felt they had fairly earned. The days were very much alike down there under the Ice. Inside their house was a big bedroom, which was dry. warm and in every way very com fortable for beavers. There they spent a great deal of time sleeping. .When they were hungry they would dive Tht Cheerful Cherub Air nail 'And the r-vdio H*h.ve trade our smvll world dwindle to.

What then is the outstanding feature of New Year resolutions that causes the derision against them to have widespread popularity? Harsh Judgment. Chief and foremost among the- rea sons for hesitating to make New Year resolutions is the fact that wo are particularly hard in our judgment against ourselves in this one connec tion. if in no other. We are on the crest of a wave of good determina tions. From this height we see our selves as we wish others to see us. We are filled with enthusiasm to do and to heroine what we realize is not above our capabilities, but which we have hitherto failed to accomplish or to live up to. A\'e fail to notice the trough of the sea. where we must descend in our struggle to rise again to the next crest. And so when the first glow - of our ambitions dims as we enter the struggle, and when we miss a stroke in our efforts to swim quickly. as we fail to live up to our high ideas, we cease to swim. Rut is it not better to refuse to be downed by our failures (and oarh of us is sure to fail rnani* times) and to strik® out again, than to give tip entirely, and be merely tossed about on the sea of mediocrity? Time for a New Start. Do we not lack a certain stamina when we deliberately refuse to look out over a new year with high ideals before us, and fine plans or resolutions to buoy us up for the coming weeks and months? January has but just come In. Shall we not begin anew to make our homes and our lives finer? MENU FOR A DAY. BREAKFAST Fried Apple Sauce Dry Cereal with Cream Baked Eggs. Baron Curls.

Os course, you know they ate only the bark. The bare stick was then taken outside to be used in patching the dam or the house. Yes, the. days were very much like each other as they passed. There was nothing exciting. No enemy was to be watched out for. If storms howled and raged and made other little peo ple shake and shiver, Paddy and Mrs. Paddy knev nothing about it. Down there beneath the ice the water was al ways one temperature, and in their fur coats, this temperature w'as very comfortable- It was neither too hot nor too cold. Reddy Fox and Yowler the* Bobcat and Puma the Panther and Old Man Coyote might feel the pinch of hun ger, and often did, but Paddy and Mrs. Paddy knew nothing of it. They did not suffer from hunger themselves, nor did they know anything about the hunger of other people. It w'as al ways very peaceful and restful. But despite this peacefulness and restful ness. Paddy the Beaver ne.ver was careless. Being so safe never led him to forget that all this safety and peace fulness depended on one thing—his dam. Paddy never forgot this. Every once in a while he would swim over to the dam and earefuliv examine it from one end to the other. He was looking for leaks. Yes, sir, he was looking for leaks. He knew that a little leak can grow very fast and can become a hig leak; so he meant to find every little leak that might ap pear in that dam. It happened one afternoon that Pad dy became very uneasy. That morn ing he had heard faintly the sound of choping. He had thought little about it at the time. After a while that sound had stopped. It was a little later that he began to grow' uneasy. He had a feeling that all yas not well. After a while Mrs. Paddy shared In that feeling. Finally Paddy could stand it no longer. “My dear,*’ said he, “I’m going outside for a few min utes.” In almost no time at all, Paddy was back. He thrust his head up into the room and spoke quickly. “There's a leak in the dam, my dear. I could feel a little current just as soon as I got outside. We’ll have to attend to that at once. Follow me.” Mrs. Paddy, like the true mate that she is, asked no questions. She fol lowed Paddy. Beneath the ice, straight over to the dam. Paddy led the way He swam fast. He didn't have to hunt for that leak. He had only to follow the current which that leak in the dam was making. His worst fears were realized. There was a hole in that dam, and the water was pouring out through it. (CoDyrirht. 1928.) Cream Pie. Heat one pint of milk in a double boiler.

(Cooyright. 1027.) DIARY OF A NEW FATHER BY ROBERT E. DICKSON. Sunday night. I didn't know that we had decided to buy an automobile—l thought we were still just talking about it. I told Joan so this morning when she said to come along and look at some cars she had seen advertised in the want ads, but she said no, we were going to get one, all right, and for me to hurry up, for heaven's sake, before other people had snapped up all the bargains. I will say for Joan that when she makes up her mind to do a thing it is usually done, even though she sometimes leaves a few details, like paying the hill, for me to attend to afterward, and always says she should think 1 would be willing to do something after she has looked after everything else, so I got my hat and coat and we went out, leaving Hilda with the baby, Joan wanted to see about a thous and cars that were advertised, and after we had walked about a million miles, I said, "Any one would think you were walking me almost to death so I would be willing to buy an auto mohile,” and Joan said. “You know perfectly well that If I bought one without your seeing it, I would never hear the end of it, and besides, walk ing is good exercise," and I said, "Why buy a car, then:" and she said, “You ran hardly make an 11-weeks old baby go walking whenever he needs fresh air, and you know per fectly well that we are buying the car primarily to get him out in the opeti.” and T didn't bother pointing out that we already had a baby buggy for him. because I had pointed it out once before and Joan said I .cer tainly couldn't expect her to consider that any argument. Anyway, I learned something about automobiles. There are no second hand cars. Pome companiee sell re built cars and others have used cars, but we didn’t hear of a second-hand one anywhere in town. Joan is going to make our choice between two cars we saw. We are going riding In them both tomorrow and I suppose we will buy the one that Is bragged about by the better looking salesman.

Good Taste in Pictures. One mother says: A good way to preserve the most interesting and beautiful of the pic tures that a child loves to cut from magazines is to pin«them to a strip of plain-colored material. This can be thumb-tacked to the wall In a child’s room. From time to time the pictures may be exchanged for fresh ones. Try to teach the child something of the elements of color, form and sentiment that make a picture really lovely and have him k»ep on his panel only what is most beautiful. Comics and other pictures of interest can be kept else where. (Copyright 1927.) Stuffed Herrings. Choose herrings with soft roes. Split the fish, take out the roes, and remove the bones. Chop the roes with powdered parsley and bread crumbs, and mix with a little butter and a beaten egg over a low heat, sea soned well. Stuff the herrings, coat in flour or oatmeal, and bake in a dish with plenty of butter. Herrings are also good served with mustard sauce or filleted and fried or grilled and then surmounted by a piece of parsley, butter and a couple of slices of lemon, or boned. rolled, and baked with herbs and a little water. r I__ __ m Bay* Boma Dorothy Dix Men and Women Love Each Other With Heart Rather Than Head—We Love Our Mates in Spite of Their Faults. A CORRESPONDENT asks this question: "Does love blind one to the faults of another or does It give one a deeper Insight Into the real charm and goodness of another that is ujiseen by the many?" That depends upon the kind of love. Also upon the Individual. Certainly, Judging from the many unsuitable marriages we see, one is inclined to say that love is not blind, but deaf and dumb and afflicted with paralysis. We observe men who have always been avowed worshipers of female beauty marrying women who are as homely as the proverbial mud fence. We see women who are dainty, cultured and refined marrying men who are coarse and ignorant. We can’t pick‘up a, paper without reading of an heiress who has eloped with her chauffeur or of a boy who has married a woman old enough to be his grandmother. The only way we can account for these vagaries of sentiment is on the ground that Cupid has a longdistance telescope glued to his eye, which enables him to see great charm and perfection in individuals that are invisible to the rest of us. The almost universal comment at a wedding is: "I can’t imagine what he saw in her to make him want to marry her, and for heaven's sake what do you suppose she saw in him that made her pick him out for a husband?” And we go home darkly pondering this mystery of love. * • * • T'HE truth of the matter, so far as love between man and woman is concerned, is that it is entirely a matter of sex attraction and that neither eyesight nor Judgment plays any part In it whatever. We love or we hate by instinct and not by reason. It is a matter of the heart, not of the head. A woman may see in a man every admirable quality and yet her vision of his perfection does not make her love him. A man may perceive a woman to be the incarnation of all the feminine virtues, yet this abstract knowledge does not quicken his pulse or send one thrill through his veins. On the contrary, a woman may observe with perfect clearness every defect a man has and love him none the less for them, and a man may give his soul for the woman in whom he recognizes a thousand faults. It is part of the blindness of love that it does not require perfection of its object. Not every adoring husband thinks his plain Maria a living picture. He isn’t blind to ihe fact that she has a stub nose, carroty hair and a figure like a feather bed. nor does his affection enahle him to look Into her mind and see wit and intelligence that the general public does not see and that in reality are not true. He sees her just ordinary and commonplace as she is— but he loves her Just the same. If moat of us would canvass tho list of those we love best we would find that we convicted them of a thousand defects and weaknesses. Indeed, we do not love people for their perfections, hut for their faults. Every drunken scapegrace, every high-tempered woman has a hundred friends, where your model scholar and perfect little body has one. • * * • 'T'HE place, however, where love is not only blind but has pads over its eyes is parental love. Men and women lo\ r e each other In spite of their faults, but parents perceive no faults. There is probably not a mother alive who doesn’t think that her children are paragons of beauty and Intelligence such as the world has never been privileged to behold before. To make her perceive that her offspring are only ordinary human beings is an Impossibility. * One of the pious lies that the recording angel must surely accredit to us Is the one we tell when a mother presents to us a red-faced, squirming little creature with no more individuality than a cream cheese and asks us if it Isn't the prettiest thing that we ever saw and if we ever beheld such intelligence displayed on a human face. Who has not suffered from listening to the long-winded strain of some doting papa and the wonderful things that Susie satd? Who has not been bored to the very verge of extinction by having had to listen while little baby recited and little Tommy drummed on the piano, while their parent* made no bones of asserting that they were exhibiting an Infantile Booth or Paderewski? You could see that they were very ordinary little children, but their parents’ eyes were holden and they actually beheld qualities In their offspring that love endowed them with and that never developed. Blessed be such love and all love, for it enables ns to be blind or far sighted at will. We aee what we love or love what we see, and it Is all part of the miracle. DOROTHY DIX. (Copyright. 1027.)

HOME NOTES BY JENNY WREN. Some one has said: “Were a man to live to be as old as Methuselah he would never cease to find fresh beauties in a Persian carpet.” How true that is only a connois seur of Oriental rugs can realize. lie knows that he becomes as fond of favorite rugs as he would of a puppy or a kitten about the house. They are - more than floor covering—they are real personalities. Shown here is a particularly hand some antique Kuba Oriental. Its col orings are soft red, blue and tan. A rug of this sort, measuring about 6 by 5 feet, may cost between two and three hundred dollars, but it is a sound investment. Its value increases with age, it is a lasting joy to its possessor, and it can be used with furniture of almost any period very successfully. Because Orientals have been so much used in Europe and America for so many centuries, they are equally at home with the massive furniture of Italy or Spain, the ele gancies of Georgian England, or the sturdy, graceful pieces of colonial or early America. Beauty Chats Ice. One of the best and most refreshing face treatments you can give yourself is a thorough rubbing with ice over the face and the neck, and if you want to over the shoulders, too. At first you may not like the extreme cold of the Ice, but it is good for the skin, and, If used on the neck, not only helps iron out the wrinkles, but also makes the neck less sensitive to drauglv and yourself less liable to catch cold. In the sumer time when the skin is relaxed and the pores naturally a little open from the heat, ice is a mar velous astringent and can be used over the face and neck immediately after washing with water and soap. But in the Winter when cold, damp winds take a certain amount of oil from the skin anyway, ice should be used following an oil rub or a cold cream massage. Otherwise, the skin may chap. The best daily treatment, prefer ably in the morning, is to rub the skin quickly with a little cleansing cream, wash it off, using fairly hot water and a mild soap (castile or cold cream soap if you can get either) and then rub with ice. The drying effect of the ice is balanced by the oiliness of the cream and by the fattiness of the soap, which will not take natural oils from the complexion as a stronger soap would. Another freshening up treatment, which can be given in the evening if you want to make your skin look fine and pretty and if you haven’t a great deal of time, is to cleanse the skin quickly with cleansing cream, wash this off with a cloth wrung from hot water, dry with a towel (this takes all the dirt >rom way down in the pores and is Itself very refreshing) and then rub on a little vanishing cream. Hub with ice, over the vanishing cream. It will take off some of the cream, but that does not matter. The combination of the van ishing cream and ice is a very good one, it makes the skin soft and clear and fresh, and it will keep on powder all evening.

EAT AND BE HEALTHY Dinah Day's Daily Talks on Dirt The Right Food Is the Best Medicine “Arrested Cases.” Any one who has contracted tuber culosis wants to know when he will be cured. If a patient has pneumonia or diphtheria or typhoid fever, the dis ease runs a course, then the victim is’ convalescent and finally he is well. His bodily resistance will be lowered and health will have to be built up. but he is completely rid of the disease which laid him low. Yet one who is stricken with tuberculosis but pets "well'’ and goes about his work may succumb to the same disease again. It is a proven fact that many, many people do recover from tuberculosis. They live normal lives, marry and have children without any danger of the children being tubercular. Dr. Brown, in his "Rules for Recovery From Tuberculosis,” de fines "cure" and "arrest" as used in reference to tuberculosis cases. In stead of pronouncing a patient "cured” or even "apparently cured," physi cians speak of a tuberculosis patient as an "arrested" case, This means that the disease is at a standstill. The germs have been walled in and cannot continue their ravage of the lungs. If the patient returns to his home and works under ordinary conditions of life without a relapse, he is "apparent ly cured.” If after one, two, three months or a year or even two years of strenuous life he relapses, then his Our Children % Angelo Patri A Map. In my early school days I dwelt for a brief time In the infant class. I understood no word of what went on In the classroom. Regularly I "lost my place" in the reader, and un failingly the teacher sent me down the ranks to sit "where she could keep an eye on me,” on the front bench, the one minus a desk. Once there she promptly forgot me. I was a very still little boy right under hsr eye, and she looked over my head at the more active chaps two and three seats back. I enjoyed my front seat Immensely. Even had I been able to "keep the place,” I should have lost it for the joy of that front seat. Hanging directly In front of me, with no bobbing heads between to cut off my view, was a delightful map. Until recently I have never seen one at all like it. It was a map of a fancied land, and it was intended to teach the geographical facts to eager childhood. It taught me many of them, but it taught me far more than I can ever put into words. Through this delectable land mean dered a river. It had the most aston ishing curves and quirks, and within the shelter of each bend sat some lovely thing that invited a visit and entertaining speculation. The river had no name. It was plainly, unmis takably labeled River in big letters. Beside it sat a great stone castle with a haughty guard. Close by was a high hill, on whose summit floated a pirate flag. fl supplied the pirate part). Farther on was a volcano from which smoke and flame was pouring. Down its steep sides raced one man and one woman and one child and one dog. They tyere headed for the valley, where nestled the school and the church and the farm. The school had a row of good children in front of its door, and on the farm was one cow and one horse and one pig and one cock. When I had traveled through the land, always traveling dangerously, I betook me to the shore, a crinkled brown shore on which the wrinkled blue waves lapped high. Ships sailed on the blue sea and fisher boats stood in the bay, while fishers' wives waved farewell from the cape, whose sharp point cleft the waters between the gulf and the bay.
