Your Age Now Is
Open Book, Girls
Can Be Told In Your Eyes—Bun
Orbs Show Honesty, Brown
Shrewdness, Say Optometrists
Here’s a fair warning, girls—
your beautiful eyes will give yot
away. They’ll reveal the secret ol
your age.
You may fool the unscientific
suitor, and lead other members oi
your bridge club to underestimati
your age, but you can’t misleac
the optometrist. By careful ex
amination of your orbs, with thi
multitudinouts instruments nov.
at his disposal, he can place youi
age within a few months.
So says the Society of Optome
trists of American.
Tell You Lots Of Things
The mere lustre of your eye may
tell them your character. The
formation of your eyebrow might
determine for them whether you
have criminal tendencies. The size
of your pupil, or the clearness of
the white in your eye would lead
them to gauge yrour basic honesty,
or the ease with which you can be
They will not admit they can go
so far as to determine whether you
would make a thrifty wife, or
whether you would be a spend
thrift, but they have their own
ideas on it as a result of their gaz
ing into the depths of your eyes.
The "baby doll” stare may fool
the boy friend, but to the skilful
optometrist such a glance is an
open book. With the strange
looking implements now adorning
their offices, they’ll look deep into
your soul, into your character, and
tell you what emotional traits you
may be subject to.
They can tell you how to get rid
of the squint in your eye that has
been bothering you for years, and
locate for you the "blind spot”
in your optic, for everybody has
such a blind spot.
Blue-Eyed More Frank
"Blue-eyed folk are apt to be
more open and frank tlian dark
eyed people,” declared Dr. Corbett.
Boston Optometrist. "It is charac
teristic of blue-eyed men and wo
men that they are apt to be more
basically honest. However, they
are more easily imposed upon, and
more easily mislead.
"It s our experience that the
brown-eyed business man is more
shrewd, better able to care for him
self, chan the man with blue eyes.
Many feel, however, that the blue
eyed man is stronger, and this
question is debatable.”
Dr. Corbett pointed out that the'
amount of pigment in your system
governs the color of your eyes
People brought up in warm clim
ates are apt to have an excess a
mount of pigment to protect them
from the strong rays of the sun,
thus resulting in brown eyes.*
Women should never try to foo
their optometrist regarding theii
age, according to Dr. Corbett.
Always Can Detect Maturity
"The matter of age is a physiol
ogical matter, and cannot be con
cealed from the skilful optometrist.
Maturity can always be detected
under the powerful rays of the in
struments now in our hands. A
woman might blandly tell me she
is only 3 0 years old, and off-hand
she might pass for 3 0, but sit her
in the chair and give her a
thorough examination, and you
will find out that the birth records
show her to be 3 8 years old,” Dr.
Corbett stated.
The ladies—some of them at least—
Grow irked and agitated
Because from inequalities
They’re not emancipated.
They vote, but that’s a privilege;
They yearn for civic duties,
They want to fill the juries with
A lot of female beauties.
Some day they’ll get just what they
Somehow they always do it—
They’ll ornament the jury box,
Though males would fain es
chew it.
In fact, in other States e’en_ now
They lend their mental forces
To doping out the murder kinks
And scandalous divorces.
Well, let them have their way,
say we,
’Twill save the male’s excuses
Each time a female sits a while
To judge the law’s abuses.
What matters it that now and
Some blue-eyed gold-haired Bet
Will prove no jury’s grand enough
To keep from being petty?
Uniontown, Pa.—Here’s a bank
failure with a happy ending.
Stockholders of the First Na

closed in 1915, today received
$110,000 in dividend checks—the

ago were paid $1.16 on the dollar.
The bank, headed by Josiah V.
Thompson, former multimillion
aire coal operator, closed seventeen
years ago when the value of coal
lands slumped. Then values sky
rocketed with the World War and
liquidation was a happy affair.
Brockton.—Several twigs bear
ing leaves that are unmistakably
of the white oak variety have been
found growing from holes in the
trunk of a rock maple on the
lawn of Zarocki Harpootlian of
477 Waren avenue. The twigs are
griwing from holes left in the tree
trunks after limbs were cut off
and the bark partly grew over the
cuts. It is thought that :|ome
wag, with an odd sense of humor,
filled the holes with loam and
dropped in some acorns and nature
did the rest.

Dairy development in . North
Carolina has reached the point now
where there is a nearby market
either in the form of a creamery,
milk plant or cheese factory avail
able to every farm in the State.
"For that reason every farm
should keep a few cows,” declares
John A Arey, dairy extension spe
cialist at State College. "Last
year the production of cheese in
the State was eleven million
pounds short of actual consump
tion while production of butter
was 1 * million pounds short. This
means but one thing. We can still
expand our dairy industry consid
erably before even our local mar
ket is supplied. One of the best
ways to do this is in the form of
farm dairying. By this I do not
mean that one must become a pro
fessional dairyman but that he
should keep at least five cows or
more depending on the supply of
home-grown feed produced and
the pasture available.”
Use Lipstick And
Rouge For Photo
Modern Film Registers Colors Ac
curately; Wear Simple Costume
But no Hat for They Tell Age.
You can use all the rouge, pow
fer and lipstick you wan: today,
girls, when you’re having your
photogtaph taken. The days are
gone when) you had to plaster
your face, neck and shoulders
with cold cream to give the skin
a fine, creamy appearance.
The modern film is so sensitive
it will register colors with amaz
ing accuracy, and the rouge on
your face will no longer look, like
a dirty blob.
"Baby Face” Pose Out
Recognize the fact, however,
that you’ll look much prettier in
a picture if you are a brunette.
It is a much more difficult task to
make the average pretty blonde
look as beautiful as she may be
in actual life.
If you want that "baby face”
look in your photographs you can
have it, but it is much desirable
today to have your picture give
the appearance of character. It is
all the rage today.
These are a few of the hints
given out by the Master Photo
Finishers of New England.

own initiative, a collection of a

Don’t Wear A Hat
The simpler the costume the
better, he pointed out. An ex
aggerated costume might be out
of date in a year, and the photo
graph would look silly. * For this
reason it is oftentimes better for
women to have their photographs
taken without hats. The hat is
more apt to indicate the antiquity
of the picture than anything else.
Don’t worry too much about
your hair arrangements. A nice
wave, of course, helps out a lot,
but the master photo-finisher can
do a lot to add softness to your
hair when he gets to work on the

Princess Nude Prayer
Ruined, She Gets Sore
Athens.—The artistic impulses
of the Princess de Broglie have
been thwarted by the unsympathe
tic attitude of the Greek police to
ward private nudist parties on the
The Princess, with the much
younger "Count Pianti,” took
photographs of each other without
even fig leaves at Erectheum and
left Athens shortly thereafter for
France, after the police confiscated
their camera and plates.
The Princess was indignant. She
explained that she had artistic ur
ges that were virtually irresistible
in the face of the monuments of
classical antiquity. Her nudity,
she said, was a prayer consecrated
by the removal of the tawdry garb
of today.
Plates Being Developed
The plates are being developed
by the Archaeological Service of
the Greek Ministry of Education
partly to verify the Princess’ story
and partly in the interests, doubt
less, of education.
The Princess, with the "Count,”
applied for permission to visit the
Acropolis between noon and 2 o’
clock, when the public is not ad
mitted. She explained that she
wanted to paint the famous Porch
of the Maidens when it was bathed
in sunlight. Permission was grant
ed, but a guard was instructed to
follow them to prevent possible

Bend, Ore.—Eloquent tribute
to an artist’s talent was paid by a
frightened quail that flew into a
barber shop here.
The bird saw snow-capped
mountains and a tree-rimmed lake.
It sped toward the timber. Its
flight was stopped when it crack
ed up against the large painting.
The barber administered first
aid and then released the bird,
which whirred away toward a hor
izon of trees that would not play
it false.

Why A Woman Is

This reason why women are like

Palmer, a subscriber, won the prize
a recent contest held by the (Red

his neighbor’s.”

Adoption of a sales tax by
municipal government as a subs
titute for high taxation ^of real
estate has been proposed.
A sales tax may have that effect
but experience—indeed, recent ex
perience—does not support any
such outcome. New sources of
taxation do not eliminate or even
reduce materially the drain on
other and older sources. They
serve only to add to the general
tax burden of the public.
It will be remembered that
when a tax on gasoline was adopt
ed the promise was made that the
charge for license tags would be
reduced to a nominal sum. A
slight reduction was made at the
time to give the promise substance.
The receipts from the gasoline tax
have constantly mounted. The
charge for automobile license tags
is still far from nominal.
If experience means Anything,
those who fondle the home that a
sales tax will replace or even mai
eriallly reduce real estate taxes are
courting painful disillusion.
New Haven, Conn.—There is
something good in the jazz band,
says John Erskine, when it makes
its members look happy.
"No symphony orchestra ever
looks happy,” said the president of
the Juilliard School of Music, in
an address at Yale. "The expres
sions, on the faces of its members
can always be connected with a
funeral march.”
Erskine expressed the belief that
the salvation of American music
lies in "the informally organized
high school and amateur orchestras
of small towns. These are com
pletely American institutions. The
trombone player chews gum to
lubricate his mouth; the conductor
is called by his first name and is
frequently involved in arguments
over his knowledge of music.”

Few home orchardists realize the
damage done to valuable fruit trees
by scale insects. Once this trouble
gets started in an orchard, it
spreads rapidly and soon infests
the trees in a large area before the
owner realizes the extent of spread
of the damage being done.
"There are few orchards in the
State not infected with scale and
this infestation should be abdicat
ed . with spray before any new
growth begins next spring,” says
C. fd. Brannon, extension entimo
logist at State College. "Examine
the trees to determine the amourir
of scale present as infestation
spreads rapidly. We have been
using oils with considerable success
in scale control and especially is
such a spray valuable where oys
ter shell scale or scurfy scale is
known to occur. Lime-sulphur was
the standard spray for years and
*if this is thoroughly applied at the
proper strength, it will eradicate
the ordinary infestations.”

Rats Chew Up
Hoarded Money
Beaufort, —Harboring upward
of a $100 in an old box very nearly
caused Jim Mayo the loss of the
entire sum recently, according to
The Beaufort News.
When Mayo moved here about
two years ago from Washington
he brought his savings,which were
upward of a $100, and secreted
the money, in currency, about his
home at the north end of Craven
Street. He evidently preferred
this means of preserving his cash,
rather than trust it to financial
Not long ago Mayo decided to
have a look at his earnings, as men
often do who have their money
secreted where there is any likli
hood of discovery. When he rais
ed the lid and looked in—
Lo and behold ! !
His money was in bits and the
box also contained a rat—and a
dead rat at that. After the startl
ing surprise, Mayo surmised that
the rat entered the box and chewed
up the paper bills and possibly
swallowed some. Evidently this
diet'of "filthy lucre” was not the '
proper food for the rat kind, for i
this member of the tribe obviously <
soon rolled over on its back and i
departed this life. Perhaps it was
because the rat was not closely re
lated to the famous paper digester,
the "Old Billy Goat,” of lauded
gastronomic ability.
How could the damaged and
destroyed currency be refunded?
That was the perplexing problem
that confronted Mayo. He took
this perplexity to Postmaster R.
B. Wheatly to see if a solution
tould be found Mr. Wheatly ad
vised the troubled colored man to
send the remains of the money to
the United States Treasury De
partment in Washington, to see
what it could do with it.
Days—anxious days for Mayo—
passed slowly. At last an envelope
of an official appearance arrived
for the middle-aged man. Upon
opening it, he was informed by the
Treasury) Department that their
experts had been successful in find
ing proof of $75 in scraps of cur
rency and were therewith sending
tim that amount. Mayo informed
i reporter that he was not sure as
:o the exact amount he had for he
lad a spent some but that he did
ioc think he lost more than a few
lollars by the hungry rat getting
nto his strongbox.
