THE FALL SKIRT
THE fall skirt Is a neat garment
which looks a good deal like the
spring skirt, but costs more, owing to
the Kuropan war, which has caused a
great scarcity of everything except
The fall skirt was gotten up last
February In the heart of Paris,
France, and sent over here to be sold
to women who do not care to look like
any of their neighbors. To the dull
and unpractlced eye of man It Is hard
to tell a new full skirt of the 1017 mod

that It was three-quarters of an inch

DID YOU DREAM OF FIRE?
N KEGAItD to dreams about Are
the mystics are not entirely agreed.
They alf seem to agree that simply
to dream of a Are Is a favorable omen,
but some s-f them attach unfavorable
meanings to different circumstances
which may arise in connection with
the dream fire. Many of them predict
that if you dream of a conflagration
in which your house or your place of
business Is burned down, you will have
many business troubles, but will come
through them all right. Others say
that if you see a fire In which the
burning houses have fallen down it
Is a most favorable omen and not so
good a one if the houses still stand.
The consensus of opinion is that to
see any fire and not get burned by it
denotes health, fortune and happiness.
To burn yourself In your dreams is
not a favorable progdostlcaUon, but to
dream that you touch the fire and are
not burned, a most favorable one.
Most authorities agree that while to
dream of fire Is a promise of good
luck. It also moans that you are likely
to have a quarrel with a friend, though
some declare that you must see the
fire start suddenly to be sure of a
quarrel, and all agree that the dispute
will be over a trifle. If you extinguish
the fire, a surprise Is In store for you.
To see a sparkling fire on a hearth or
In n stove, denotes plenty of money.
If a woman builds a fire without any
trouble, she will be happy and have
If she has difficulty In making the
fire burn, the omen Is the reverse.
The scientists regard the fire dream
simply as a reminiscence from our
nursery days when we were warned
not to play with matches and schedule
this dream as one of the typical or
As the scientists don't enUrely agree
with the mystics, and the mystics don't
entirely agree among themselves with
regard to the significance of dream
fire, it would seem to be a case where
each of the rest of us was entitled to
his own opinion.

Last year more than 2,000,000 boys
and girlj In cities, large towns and In

cultivated gardens under school direc
tion and supervision and produced
many millions of dollars' worth of veg
etables and small fruits to be con
sumed .where produced without cost
for transportation and handling and
without ioss from, deterioration on the
markets. There were many thousands
of boys and girls who produced more

wise have been, idle time, and thou
sands of acres of land that would have
lain idle If it had not been cultivated
by the boys and girls yielded more than
$5U0 an acre.

FOR BOYCOTT OF BILLBOARD
Speaker Advocates Strenuous Action
Against What la Generally Recog
nized as a Nuisance.
Declaring the automobile has made
the billboard a countrywide problem,
E. T. Hartman of Boston, member of
the Massachusetts Civic league, ad
dressing a meeting of the American
Civic association, said that there Is
no bet law or method for dealing
with the problem presented by the de
facement of both the city and the
country by outdoor advertising.
The public, he said, can bring reme
dies to bear when it chooses to make
the effort. He suggested that one ef
fective method would be to withhold
patronage from persons and firms em-
ploying this method of publicity, and
said this would settle the whole prob
lem in a year.
