Walking Conditions and Footwear BY MARY MARSHALL. The improvement in city pavements lias had more to do with change*; in thoo fashions of iate years than the shoemakers themselves. Tt used not to be considered “good form'’ to wear thin-soled, light-colored shoes in the 1 street —and it wouldn’t- be considered good form now if streets and side- 1 walks Were what Ihey used to be.

Contrary planetary influences will be at work, according to astrologers, who warn men and.women to practice the homely virtues. There is a good sign for workers who will benefit greatly in the next few* months, if they do riot quarrel, for Mars is in a threatening aspect. Mars Appears to give promise of supreme activity in steel and iron. Many orders from foreign lands will come to America. England is to manufacture great quantities of armaments, if the stars are wisely interpreted, and larger con signments will go indirectly to Ii dia, Persia and Russia. Religious fanaticism will appear in new forms in the new* year, it is fore told. Efforts to restore the crown to de posed monarchs will be persistent in more than one country df Europe, the seers prophesy. Mexico is still subject to planetary influences making for uprisings and revolutionary movements. The annular eclipse of the sun is read as presaging world excitement and widespread unrest among the people. Great fluctuations of the financial market may be expected and all who speculate will take unusual risks. Venezuela and Colombia are likely to benefit in a commercial way, for new natural resources will be utilized. Persons whose birth date it is will benefit most if they act with unusual discretion in the coming year. They should not make changes. Children born on that day may be rather domineering in temperament, but able to accomplish big things in life.

MILADY BEAUTIFUL BY LOIS LEEDS i Training’ a “Sweet Tooth,” • Dear Miss Leeds —I am 20 years ' old, 3 feet 4 inches tall and weigh i 145 pounds. It is so terribly hard to diet, us T have a perfect craving for sweets and they are served every day at meals. The other members of my family indulge in them and it is so hard for me to resist. 1 have tried a reducing system bv exercise to phonograph records, but without losing any weight. I do detest obesity. Do help me! ANXIOUS. Answer—Your correct weight is be tween 123 and 12k pounds. As you realize yourself, the chief cause of your overweight is your “sweet tooth.” I cannot give you any magic formula for reducing while you con tinue to eat fattening foods, nor can I instill in you the will power neces sary for overcoming your obesity. It would be a good plan for you to stay away from the table for, one meal each day. so that you will not be tempted beyond your strength to resist. Two meals a day should be enough for you. Take a brisk five mile walk every day. take some kind of gymnasium exercises.

My face is very hairy and my complexion is blotchy, sluggish and full of pimples. Is there a Simple lotion or cream for removing the hairs? I am 31 years old. How can I improve my skin? BROWN EYES. Answer—Hair on the face is one of the physical characteristics of the male sex; a smooth face is distinctly feminine. When quantities of hair appear on a woman’s lip, cheeks and chin the cause may usually be traced to disturbed functioning of her in WHEN WE GO SHOPPING BY MRS. OAKLAND H. ALLEN. Quality and. Price Appeal. Ordinarily two thihgs decide all of our purchases— quality and price. Understanding these two “appeals,” as they are sometimes known, will help to make more efficient “purchas ing agents” of us all. First, look at shop windows. One window will he filled with arti cles of all kinds, each one price tagged. Another window will only have a few articles in it, simply hut impressively displayed, with no'price tags evident. The first window ap peals by price and the second by quality. Were you to be blindfolded and led to a shop window you could tel! by the display what sort of neigh borhood you were in, how the people bought and how they were sold. Quality manifests itself in many ways. It may he in fineness of texture, exclusiveness of design, dis tinctiveness of material or superior workmanship in manufacture. All of these things are worth money to those who can afford them. There is no doubt at all that a S2O pair of shoes, if sensibly bought, will return dollar for dollar its value in satisfactory service. We cannot all afford to buy quality goods. We are limited by price in our buying. It is up to us, therefore, to get as much as we can for the money we cum afford to spend. That is one reason why price shoppers often get most for their money. When one buys quality price is not likely to matter, but when one buys price merchandise there is an incen tive to stretch our shopping dollars. It is not true, however, that all quality goods are costly. Many arti cles of daily use arc* inexpensive, hut ! invariably one will find substitutes at a lower price, it is also obvious that some of us can and do buy quality merchandise in one line and i Exquisite Facial Soap Rids Skin of Blackheads You’ll be surprised-—and delighted —to lc*arn what one treatment can ac- j complish! i Blackheads are a mixture of de composed sweat, oil and dirt, solid- | j lficd in the tiny cone-shaped pores of the skin, because ordinary toilet soap or facg creams have not dissolved j and washed them away. But Che.x —an exquisite, superfine j toilet soap contains a purifying, odor- i less deodorant, not found in any ! other soap; which, in the velvety, 1 creamy lather, penetrates to the very ; bottom of the tiny pores and dis sovles every bit of the. decomposed, hardened secretions. • Chex brings adorable eh arm lieauty of transparent skin, and a I'OnsetOUs feeling that your personality is never offending—but —"Alluring, every hour in ('•hex costs no more than any fine soap at drug stores and toilet counters.

Frequently, after the j female organs have been removed | or after the menopause, a moustache appears. .Some women who are quite | normal have some masculine traits, }■ including facial hair, just as some men are as fastidious and finicky as the typical old maid of a generation ago. A light down on the face, how ever, is quite natural and it should be left alone. If It is removed with depilatories or shaved off it will grow in thicker and become a real disfig urement. The better way to treat J V such a growth is to bleach it so that it will not be noticed. If there are only a few long, conspicuous hairs you may have them removed permanently by electrolysis. I judge that the sluggish, blotchy condition of your skin is due to lack of fresh air and outdoor exercise. Ii is not possible to improve your complexion without first improving your general health and habits of living. Please send a stamped, self-addressed en velope for my leaflets, “Beauty Exer cises” and "Complexion Ills." LOIS LEEDS. A Reader—You may use a lotion made of four parts peroxide to one part ammonia to bleach the super fluous hairs. Since this mixture has a tendency to make the skin too dry you should use a little cold cream on the skin about every other night while you are using the bleach every night. LOIS LEEDS. (Copyright. 1027.) — ; price merchandise in another. A woman might, for example, buy the finest face powder obtainable and wear a fur coat made of second-choice skins. Exclusive of the necessaries of life, one might ask, Why do people buy quality merchandise? Home buy be cause of vanity; they want the best any are willing to pay for it. Others know that ml economy lies in buying the best. If all of us could afford to make the initial outlay for quality merchandise we would save ulti mately on the purchase price, because quality repays in satisfaction and service. It is needless to inquire why,we buy price merchandise. The point to consider Is that these two classes of merchandise exist and that they are separate and distinguishable. Quality means real economy. For those who cannot afford it, it means extrava gance. Price merchandise in America is the finest in the world and accords one the real advantage of getting quality at bargain prices. A Man's Pie.

MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN.

Next have him shuffle his slips of paper and place them face downward. Then he may draw the slips, one by one, and do for as long as he likes the thing indicated. The element of chance that children love enters into this plan and gives it pe- j culiar interest. Chicken With Mushrooms. Cook a chicken until tender.

Etiquette, much as we may dislike the word, is one that may well cap ture our attention these days of hur -1 riod living: anti hurried thinking, when life seems to be moving too rapidly to allow for the little formalities that may so easily be dropped by the way side. And yet, by these formalities, by tiie manner in which we “do" things, are we known to those with whom we come in contact as we move about in our world of civilization! We are placed by our manner, hy our speech, by our personal appear ance, and the first Impression that we give, however favorable It may lie, cannot be a lasting one unless by habit we continue to demonstrate straight through our acquaintance with our fellow being that our choice of things, personal and impersonal, is always a discriminating one—that we prefer the nice to the indifferent tilings of life and that, instinctively, we do correctly even the little, unim portant things, as custom from time immemorial has decreed they should be done. Chekhov has said: . . One should he mentally clear, morally pure and physically tidy ...” AVe might add to this that also one should be con cerned with the niceties of choice — for etiquette is that and that alone, a nice choice where choice there is between the good, bad and indifferent way of doing things. This new column, then, is to come into being in the hope that it may he of assistance in jus* this—the choice. Home makers, to whom falls the duty, the pleasure and the responsibility of entertaining, almost constantly meet the question of how and when and EAT AND BE HEALTHY Dinah Day's Daily Talks on Diet The Right Food Is the Best Medicine Belching. How embarrassed Jim Brown feels i when he is seized with an attack of , belching! And how annoying it is to i Jim Brown's audience! . Belching is not a bad habit into , which the thoughtless fall. The cause , must be looked for. If tho desire to , belch occurs after every meal, un ' doubtedly the diet needs changing. One authority remarks that there are three kinds of belching: (1) A slight gurgling sensation felt in the • esophagus or windpipe. f 2) The eructation or belching of gas from . the stomach. (3) A movement of air downward into the stomach, or a voluntary or half-voluntary swallow ing of air. , Dr. Kellogg, Dr. Case and others have shown that so-called belching in the majority of cases is simply swal lowing of air or the belching of air which has been swallowed. A feeling of discomfort is felt in the stomach and the victim tries to, relieve it by taking deep breath and “ejecting” it. Occasionally hiccough and belch ing are associated. ‘ It is probable that many cases of ’ stomach discomfort are the result of ' reverse peristaltic waives which bring j gas or liquid into the stomach and cause distress. When food is being digested, the contraction and movement of the stomach cause the food to be moved along to the intestines, and along the intestines also. This is called peristal sis or peristaltic motion. When the waves through some disturbance should start going backwards, the movertient would be reverse peristaltic waves. It is well known that gas is rarely generated in thtf stomach by fermen tation. Gas in the stomach is either swallowed or brought up from the intestines by reverse peristalsis. Sometimes the stomach discomfort may be due to gas found lower down in the Intestines. Temporary relief for the sufferer from belching may be gained by sip ping a glassful of very hot water, with perhaps a little baking soda in it. This will open the upper stomach and let the disturbing gas or liquid escape.

It is probable that gas formed in the bowel is responsible. Food which cause gas must be avoided. Intestinal gas may be caused by protein foods and by starch and suga. foods. If the waste residues are retained too long, intestinal gas may result. Freedom from constipation and a diet leaving out the foods which one knows cause distress will keep the victim from belching.
