As soon as I have earned enough money to buy myself a re spectable suit, and a ticket, I’ll be on my way tc Chicago and you. There is one thing that you don’t need to worry about, and that is that I might fall in love with any of hese plantation beauties. We don’t seem to talk the same language — and any way. there could never be anyone as lovely as you are. Write me at once and tell me all about yourself, my very dear.” Having written the letters, Carl sealed them in envelopes he had ob tained from the supply house, and strolled slowly to the big house where the mail box was. Overhead a yellow moon cast its translucent light over the shadowy path he trod, and the heavy fragrance of tuberoser and jasmine scented the night with exotic perfume. Soft wind, freighted with the strange, compelling odor of the swamp, stirred the foliage with gentle rustlings. It brought to Carl the far away throbbing of a banjo, and the sound of singing voices drifting slowly through the night. . . . His heart constricted within him as a poignant consciousness of the beauty of the night, inter-mingled with a vague longing he could not express, attuned his mood to the languorous loveliness of the dusk. He had a feling that his past life in the Northern city was a distant, unreal experience, and that he was just now beginning to live. He felt the impending sense of something at once beautiful and terrible awaiting him. END OF INSTALLMENT FOUR CONTINUED NEXT WEEK -O NEGRO INVENTOR Elijah J. McCoy, r.

He subsequently pat ented about fifty inventions that have to do with the lubrication of machinery. IS IT A SIN NOT TO HAVE CHILDREN? ♦-----♦ Have vou a puzzling love affair on which you need friendly advice? I Write to Julia Jerome, care this newspaper. II vou wish a personal reply I please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope._I Our letter this week is from the backwoods of Mississippi. My dears Mrs. Jerome: I am a young married woman with two children. We are very poor share-croppers and can scarcely hold body and soul to gether and vet my father-in-law. who is verv religious, wishes us to keep on having children. He says it Is a sin not to. But if I have another it will take me out of the fields for a year and I have al ready become delicate from the other two. I don’t want to com mit a sin but oh. Mrs. Jerome. I can’t bear to think of bringing another sweet, innocent child in to our life of starvation and toil! YOUNG MOTHER. My dear, your attitude is the rlgnt one. Your father-in-law, in the first place, is a man without any know ledge of what child-birth means. It is impossible for a man to un derstand a woman’s agony of body and soul at such a time. Even in pleasant surroundings, with money enough for comforts, bearing children is hard. In the second place, he is out of tune with this age. When there was plenty of land, and an abundance of food for the taking, then perhaps birth control was unnecessary. But today it is different. What the coun try needs today is not quantities of ill-nourished, ignorant children, but good, strong, healthy, intelligent youngsters whose parents can send them through college to prepare them efficiently for the complex de mands of modern life. Birth control has arisen because there is need for it. You are living in the new age and your instinctive judgment is much better than that of an old man nur tured on outworn ethics. Every age creates its own set of ethics. Morali ty" changes like everything else. Imagine what would happen if peo pie tried to live today as they did in the time of the Old Testam n ! They’d be in jail in no time for biga my. Tell this to your father-in-law, and act according to the best that's in you.

Old residents in Zanzibar will remember the sensation that was created when the wife of a foreign consul walking with her husband on the Muari minoja—the Tashlonable road of African Ceylon, having in advertently stepped into a procession of warrior ants, was so rapidly in fested by the enemy that, wild with pain and disgust, she tore off her clothes and stood naked. “People are apt to lose their heads completely under these circumstances, the moral effect being at least as strong as the physical one. “A friend of mine, who lived near Lake Victoria, once told me how a guest of his, who was sleeping in the same room, near the window, was at tacked by Saifu in the middle of the night, and already covered with them when he awoke. He jumped out of bed, tore off his pajamas, and -.tarted dancing about, yelling for his boys to come and pick off the insects. But when they arrived running, he, insted of standing still, began box ing their ears because they did not do it fast enough, whereupon they, believing that their master had ?en mad, ran out of the house again, ter rorized, leaving him to shift for him self.” These warrior ante are the most vicious when it is dry and warm. Then they go out in great columns, searching for water or liquid and care not whether it is blood or other forms. When, too, it rains hard and their underground dwellings are flooded they will forage for dr/ places. “So great is the Stafu’s pluck and determination,’’ says chi scientist, “that the rear ranks keep moving on, while the head Is being de stroyed—advancing over the bodies of the slain; and it is not until the ranks of the column are entirel’ dis organized. that the separate Indi viduals will alter their course.” But even warrior ants, vicious and terrible as they are. have a weak ness, “and while they feai not death,” DORY HAVE CHILLS - take- ~ — _ SOLD EVERYWHERE as ur. couaennove says, "tney nav their idioeyncrasies in point of smel like Henry of .f;./arre, who fainte at sight of a rose. “One of these aversions is kriow; _ Continued m face Eight iA4rerti$MM(iti Swelling Reduced Anc Skort Breathing Relieved Swelling (other than fubetcuiai and Turner*us) when caused by an unnatural collection ol water in feet and ankles, extending upward as the water collects, and wh. n pressure on ankles leaves a dent.
