(Copyright. 1932) THE long, straight loop of the "g" would seem to indicate that this writer is of a very positive and determined disposition. It, is likely she is interested in doing thinas in her own way. She probably wastes little time in thinking about her actions beforehand, having developed the ability to make decisions quickly. Apparently she would make an ex cellent executive in some line of busi ness effort. In dealing with the public or in selling something she would per haps not be successful. In managing others, however, she would be doing work wholly in line with her dominant personality. Quite likely she would be a valuable asset to an office where strict discipline and efficiency were demanded. The looped "p" would lead us to be liete she lias a liking for numbers. She probably was an excellent student of arithmetic while in school. This inborn proficiency for mathematics would seemingly afford a foundation for the study of accounting. Successful woman accountants are exceptionally well paid, many business leaders believing that such detailed work is best done by fe male minds. However, to test out her aptitude for accounting, a short period of study and work as a bookkeeper would be advisable. Should she find herself interested in accounting, after learning its possibilities, there are many excellent schools in which she could l-t-. V, It is possible that she is not allowing herself enough time for social contacts and relaxation. Friendly intercourse with others would add a pleasing soft ness and charm to her somewhat dom inant personality. Social groups would welcome her qualities of leadership, and in their activities it is likely she would find much pleasure.

The ancient market place and parts of the old city wall may be found in the structure of old alleys. A thirteenth century church contains many relics of the past. TROUBLED ALL LIFE WITH CONSTIPATION But Kellogg’s All-Bran Brought Real Relief If you ar subject to headaches, loss of appetite and energy, sleep lessness and other effects that so often result from constipation, read Mrs. Turner's voluntary letter. ‘‘For the past six months I ’’ive been eating Kellogg's All-'--'N, and cannot praise it too highly. “Am fifty years of ago. All »y life have been troubled with consti pation. Kellogg's All-Bran has not only helped me, but has cured me. “I thought I couldn’t like the taste of bran, but Kellogg's All Bran is delicious.”—Mrs. C. J. Turner. 507 Hanover Street, Fall River, Mass. Tests show All-Bran contains two things which overcome consti pation: “Bulk” to exercise the in testines; Vitamin B to help tone the intestinal tract. All-Bran also sup plies iron for the blood. The “bulk” in All-Bran is much like that of lettuce. Inside the body, it forms a soft mass, which gently clears the intestines of wastes. Certainly this Is more natural than taking pills and drugs—so often harmful. All-Bran is not habit-forming. Two tablespoonfuls, daily will correct most types of con stipation. If you have intestinal trouble not relieved this way, see your doctor. Get the red-and-green package at your grocer's.

THE birch tree is the only known tree that tries to plant its family on a rock. They actually settle on the rocks when the winds have blown them from the par ent tree. Here they use the bit of soil they find and send out tiny rootlets which eventually find the ground and send down hardy roots. This tree has been most successful in hanging on in niches where other trees would perish. Another thing in this tree’s favor is that it will take up its abode in the bare and ugly places and make these lovely stretches spots which gladden those who see them. The trees reach about 40 feet high, but are short-lived. They are straight and slender with horizontal branches and tremulous leaves. The leaves themselves are small and pointed with sawtoothed edges. They are from 2 to 3 inches long, dark green above and pale beneath. They are a golden yel low In the Autumn. The flowers are male and female on the same tree, and the pollen is carried from flow’er to flower by the bees. The buds are brown and slender, about one-half inch long and blunt at both ends. Tire fruit is cylindrical, blunt at both ends and about 1 Inch long. The scales are downy and three-lobed, with a broad wing which helps them ride the wind. When the tree is cut down it sends shoots out. at once and soon the un sightly stump has vigorous branches coming from it. The lumbermen have -corned this tree because of its size: however, lately there has been such a demand for the wood that they are giv ing it more respectful consideration. Shoe pegs, spools, wood-pulp and fuel are the uses to which the wood is put. From Novia Scoita along the coast to Delaware, and northwest to Lake Ontaria. these lovely trees grow. They thrive in any soil and often are found leaning over streams. They are some times spoken of as gypsy trees. They are among the trees which can be ex pected to give a bountiful return in a comparatively short time. The owner of many sterile acres can set these trees close together, and no matter how scant the living the sterile soil yields, the trees grow and are happy. There is only one tree which might be confused with this tree and that is the canoe birch. L%.k closely at the bark and you will notice that it is a chalky white and yellowish beneath, and that it does not rub off: this is your first guide until vou know the canoe birch and its markings. One more thing in the birch tree’s favor, and that is it is a most capable nurse. Where hardwoods and conifers are growing on land which nature is reforesting, this tree makes a most valu able windbreak. The birch grows quickly, while the others are much more slow in their growing up. They stay however, for manv, many more years i than their nurse does. I Copyright. 1912) • - Banana Betty.

Joan* v as 7 years old and having her first birthday party. For the last five years sinfce Joan had been staying with her Aunt Nancy there had been many j requests for a party. But Nancy decri'd parties for small children. She felt j they developed tantrums and tempers, indigestion and worse ills. But now ' Joan was 7 and old enough to know I what a birthday party really meant. : The youngster had printed, sealed, stamped and mailed the Invitations all herself. She had been consulted regirding games and refreshments. The hours of the party were from 3 to 7. This al lowed Nancy to serve a simple supper which took the place of the child's eve ning meal at home. Such a scheme did not surfeit the child with food at an unusual hour and spoil the appetite for a real meal. Creamed chicken, lettuce sandwiches, celery, plain ice cream and a simple birthday cake with seven ! candles, hot cocoa with a fluffy marsh hallow topping made up the menu. ' May I have a new silk dress. Aunt; Nancy? I want a pink one with lace j | like Marguerite has.'' ; "Yes, you may, but I think it would be too bad if you were dressed finer 1 than any of your guests. You are the hostess and you don't want to make them feel shabby or uncomfortable. 11 thought I'd get you and Peter 'brother- i sister' suits of handkerchief linen. What do you think? Joan decided on the linen dress.' Much to Nancy’s dismay, when she ! dressed her son and her niece for the 1 party she found that Peter's suit but toned over in the same fashion as Join's. It was too late to rectify the mistake and get a suit which lapped 1 and buttoned exactly the opposite. This is one of the points to watch in getting clothes for boys and girls. But the party was a great success, nevertheless. (Copyright, 1932 1 -• Due to modern methods of avoiding waste, thousands of dollars are now saved annuallv in practically every in dustry.

TT didn't take the gentleman in the x Senate, who likes to refer to himself as Louisiana's "KingPsh,” but three days to incur the wratli of one of his colleagues during QCDBlc on me floor. It has been evi dent to observers In the gallery since the day he was sworn In that the restlessness of Huey P. Long would find expression In some manner at the earliest moment. He seems unable to keep still while he is on the floor. ’ He bounces in and out of the cham ber, hitting the swinging doors to the cloak room nut- a iuut Dan piayer maKing a line plunge. When he sits down, his fingers beat a steady tattoo on his desk as he watches the face of the Senator on his feet at the time. He will jump up when a colleague passes, eagerly shaking his hand as he shifts his cigar. King of Utah was talking about the alien seamen bill Senator "Huey’s" third day in the Senate. The self styled "Kingflsh” was a bit more eager and resiles:. perhaps, than usual. At any rate, breaking some sort of a pre cedent for freshmen Senators, he jumped to his feet and interrupted King. Now the Utah Senator is a rather tolerant sort of a member—has usually a genial smile and a benign attitude. But it looked as if he was a bit sur prised. if not a little impatient, with Long interrupting him in such fash ion. Nevertheless, he yielded to "Huey” in a pleasant sort of way and gave a polite answer to his question. King probably thought the Hon. "Huey" was through, but he was in terrupted again. Joe Robinson asked a question about the same time, how ever, and King ignored Long. A soon as Robinson concluded. "Hu v" broke through with another question. It was easy to see that King’s pa tience was b^ing tried. Yet he heard and answered Long again. But the ' Kingfish” was not yet through—he kept baring in on Senator King. F.nell". the tall, lanky Utah Senator got rnoug.i. He turned on "Huey" with rc—'th’r.g rer -rrbting a .mar!. "I have stated repeatedly, etc.. etc .." he shouted. Still "Huey” didn't sit down. When King was through stating what he had "stated repeatedly" Long shot another question at him. By this time, King was really aroused. He fairly shouted at Long: "You’ve made the same statement before, and I stated then, and I re peat now, etc., etc.-” Probably Long got the idea then that King was irked. At least he sat down and didn't ask any more questions. But it wasn't for long. Later in the afternoon, undaunted, he arose and made his maldea speech in the Senate. My Neighbor Says: When packing dresses in trunks or suit cases, place tissue paper in the sleeves and between folds to prevent creases. Neckbands and cuffs of gowns and coats that have become soiled may be easily cleansed by placing on a board and rubbing soiled parts with a brush that has been dipped in lukewarm, soapy water. After drying, press collar and cuffs with a hot iron. A little hot milk added a little at a time while mashing potatoes will make them light and fluffy. Heat, but do not boll the milk. To make beef juice, add 1 pound of fresh, raw, finely chopped round steak without fat to 6 ounces of cold water. Add a pinch of salt, put the beef and water in a glass jar and stand it on ice over night. Shake and strain it through coarse muslin, squeez ing hard to obtain all the juice.
