Enjoying Healthy Conditions BT LTD1A LE BARON WALKER. IT you would have health and hap piness don't talk about sickness and forget there is such a term as financial depression. No one ever got well as the result cf dwelling on her suffering, nor became wealthy contemplating how hard up she was These are negative thoughts. TALKING OF ONE'S AILMENTS LEAVES A WOMAN MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY DEPRESSED. destructive ideas The minute you stop considering your physical ailments in their misery-making form and start to think of ways cf coping with them and getting the better of them, then you have faced recovery. Your ideas are constructive The thought is "What can I do to get well?" instead of "How terribly I am suffering!" This does not mean that the pain stops with the thought, but it does signify that, bad as it is. you Intend that you shall succeed in grtting the better of it. and not that it shall get the better of you This d»t®rmined at titude to get well Is one of the greatest helps a doctor can have in his efforts to cure you. Give him this aid and note how much more effective the medicines and the treatments will prove, for you are working with them and not in opposition. Stop talking of yur aches and pains. Talk about any smallest improve ment, or good condition. If you try to find these you will discover some thing that will be cheering f r those about you to hear and, incidentally, something that will be cheerful for you yourself to dwell upon When you are in this happy frame of mind you are actually fostering g od health, since happiness is a fine tonic. If you really want to g't well and stay well you must steer clear of sickness as a topic of conversation. Strange as it may seem, there are per sons who "enjoy po'r health.” They delight in describing in detail all their horrid symptoms and disagreeable feel ings. Few of us are willing to be classed with this group, but unless we stop talking sickness w» show one dis tinct sign of entering the e mpany. As for talking cf depression, every one really knows to do so keeps the mind on the wrong side of the problem THE STAR’S DAILY PATTERN SERVICE Still another new and splendid model for general day occasions.

(Oopyrliht, 1031.) NATURE’S CHILDREN BY LILLIAN COX ATHEY. Illustrations by Mary Foley. LIFE OF A CATERPILLAR. A CATE1RPILLAR may be the off spring of a moth or a butterfly Some of them are beautifully marked. After you have be come familiar with the butterflv and the moth you can tell whose child is eating your vegetable or tree. They have beautiful coats of many colors They have horns and warts and tufts of hair. They have the ability to imitate their surroundings, and some of them are provided with atomizers. When thus gifted, it is with a feeling of sad ness you remember the caterpillar who used you for a target. Some are like little woolly bears and curl up in a small ball if molested Others have spines that break off if touched. They burn like fury, and that involves another caterpillar you can re member easily. Th° silkworm is the offspring of a creamy white moth. H° eats the leaf Of the mulberry and turns his spittle into a thread of strong silk about 1.000 feet long It is very curable and can be unwound on to a specially- made shuttle. His product is worth about $500,000,000 a year. There are caterpillars which dine upon our cabbage, bean, celerv and nearly every vegetable we plant. There are others which wait in the egg state through freezing weather until our fruit trees have tender leaves on them The tent caterpillar builds a huge cir cuslike tent and eats every leaf the tree puts forth. Some caterpillars crawl about, others drop from silken ropes to the food near by. Rarely do their parents partake of food. But their children surely don't take after them The days of the caterpillar are spent eating and outgrowing their clothes When ready to Chang* a garment, they fast for a day or two. While they are standing still upon a rug of silk or hanging tightly to a twig, the old gar ment splits down the back, and the newly clad specimen steps out of his oast-off suit, which Is left hanging to the boughs in a most untidy fashion. The new suit is a loose-fitting one Soon It is a little too snug for comfort and is discarded. Several suits are ex changed in the lifetime of a fat cater pillar He lives to ear. Some of these fellows get to be very la*g» The hickory horn d»vll grows to the length of 5 inches. He Is a very handsome crea*ur® Hts great horns and warts make him a fearsome looking fellow, who depends upon his size and looks to keep his enemies away. When ready to exchange this form and stage of existence for that of the gay and free moth or butterfly, the caterpillar spins a shelter of silk If he is the offspring of the moth, and if of the butterfly he Is likely to weave a strong rop- of silk, fasten the ends to a silken button and swing from this halter. Each spe-ies has a special type of covering. Some line leaves with silk 1 and draw the edges about them O h’rs weave blankets and other snug, tight homes. They always provide for their entrance Into the world again by leav ing a flap or exit handy. They are often made the babv car riage of parasitic flies. Their soft body I is easily punctured by the clever fly mother The days of these victimized caterpillars are numbered and are fi'led with a gnawing, empty feeling. The little enem'es are consuming hts body end his life is the price of their exist ence. __ (Copyright. 13"! > Juniors sweet on a girl—’ But Chipso makes extra washes so easy!

The ^ oman Who Makes Good BY HELEN WOODWARD, Whose uniquely successful career, both in business and private Ufa, enables her to speak with authority on problems of the modern woman. Insuring Her Friends. "Dear Miss Woodward: I am a col lege graduate, 26 years old, but un a-ained in any practical field. Circum stances now force me to earn my living. I have decid'd to inter the insurance Business as an agent, as I have taken a few courses In that field while it college and have tnany friends on svhcm I could de pend as customers.

ANXIOUS.” The best thing you can do is to get n touch with a man who already has 1 in insurance agency cf his own, or the read of the branch office of some big nsurance company. If you have good prospects, you would lave no trouble getting a connection cith such an office. And these practi- j •al people would give you any informa ton you need about licenses (if you1 leed them in your State) and would fenerally clear the way fcr you. Getting insurance from your friends could give you a start, but you couldn't jase a career on that. You have to be a rood saleswoman, you have to be a tuent talker, and you have to have ■normous energy’ to sell insurance. It is a job that means working from ■he time you wake in the morning intil 10 o'clock at night. It means oining clubs; It means endless social activity. But not for its own sake. You nust think insurance constantly, no natter what you do or where you go. You should have some talent for flg tres and you should study the business horoughly before you try to sell policies, rhe office you join would give you ill the material you need to study.
