I can't for the life of mo see any fun in knocking wooden balls through an aslr.ine ser ies of wickets. Mary does. Now, periodically, Mary and I, at my suggestion, strive to adjust our selves to each other's tastes. It's usually after Ive read some news paper article about wives and hus bands drifting apart. So, ln a malig nant attack of conscience, I have learned to play croquet, and summer evenings I mildly follow Mary about and thump at wooden balls. I never hit them. My specialty Is wrenching out the wickets. This self-sacrifice of mine has borne retributive frflt, Mary has tried to like something that I like. "Poter," she said radiantly one bright, warm afternoon "I'm going to the ball game with you. I'm sure I'll be able to understand the game after a while. If you will explain it." I expressed my willingness to try, and we set forth. It was Saturday afternoon and the W'averly club was playing a rival coun try club. Mary and I climbed to the grand stand and she fluttered prettily Into her seat with a qtllck glance all around her. I gathered from her ra diant face that she looked better than the other -women near her. She usually does. "Now, don't forget. Peter!" she ex claimed sweetly, "you must explain ev erything Just as It happens." I sighed. Have you ever tried to ex plain a ball game to a girl when thlncs1 are happening so fast and furious that you Just want to watch and whistle? I shan't forget my experience with Mary. "Well, that's the plate," I began "A plate," said Mary, puzzled. "Dear j me, you don't mean a platter to carry the ball on, do you' What else would they do with a plate at a ball game?" A cynical old fan behind me mur mured something anout a plate and a fowl and "roasting' the umpire. It was a vile pun, and his companion ig nored It, save by a whispered admoni tion to shut up. which he didn't do. "Who." said Mary very firmly, "is the i young man with the muzzle?" ) "BUI Schenck," said I. j "Don't like his name," sniffed Mary. . "It isn t really necessary that you I should." I suggested, a little annoyed. "He plays good bal without." The game went forward. I patiently explained in simple language as much as I could. Mary nodded sweetly and graciously, but I could see that she wa- concentrating only upon the details that Interested her. Those details were usually not the tecnmcal points of the game. They were the cut of the base ball suits, the pulchritude (or lack of it) of tho players, and the hats of the women anout her. "Greit Scott." I exclaimed at the mid die of the tourth inning.

With true Amer ican thrift and foresight we pre pare summer clothes in the spring, and winter clothes in the fall, just as if the year only had two sea sons. And before the winter is half over our clothes are passe, because they are copies df French fall styles. Then when the real French winter oddities come across the water we feel as if fashion designers were trying to pique and provoke us, because our clothes allowance has- been spent. Yet French women appear al ways able to afford a new mode. They never buy from necessity, but only because they are fasci nated by the possibility of creat ing a new sort of dash. Replen ishing the whole wardrobe twice a year would be, to them, an ab surd practicality, as devoid of in terest as cleaning house. Theirs is the artistic method of following the fashion world, and, after all, it is very practical, for it harbors no disappointments. Divide the year into four parts, and the new fashion kinks will not fly in and out with such speed. The midseason frock is not an ex pensive luxury, for, after it has had its individual popularity it be comes an informal costume for the other three seasons. The striking gown of the illus tration is designed of prune-colored taffeta. It is a variation of the popular style of basque dress, for this model is unbuttoned from neck to waist to disclose a double ruffle of cerise-dotted batisij. Un ercollar and sleeve puffs are made of the batiste as well, and a vol uminous cape of prune velvet completes the costume. The heavy cord and silk tassels which trim the cape are note worthy features of fall decoration, and the extremely high, flaring cellar is in excellent and becoming style. Is Just one straw.

B., M. A M. D. (Johns Hopkins) T T OW often deafness is directly traceable to lnflam- Hmatory states of the nose it is difficult to say. But very seldom, indeed, does the ear escape with a whole skin when nasal troubles are present Curious to tell, some of the victims of deafness, con sequent to nose and throat disorders, are turned coldly from the offices and hospitals of ear and throat special-' ists, happily to be cured by the miscalled "quack" pro cedures of heat, electricity or vibration. Dr. Albert C- Geyser, professor of physiological ther apy of Fordham University and Cornell University, New York, has emphasized this strange point of view of spe cialists. Patients with ear disorders and deafness that have been of from Ave to fifteen years duration, told at a hospital "there is little hope of improvement." often exhibit remarkable auditory eorrecUo leged "quack" treatments. At one time it was erroneoujr the nose, came directly from the brain. Then -came a man. by the homely name of Schneider, and made all the anto- mlsts sit up and take notice. He showed that the mucus and fluids came from little bits of "glands," burled In the lin ing membranes of the nose. Moreover, this membrane is really a continuation of the membranes of the eustachian tube and ear drum, and the Inside of the mastoid bone. Even the eyelid and the tear duct have the same membrane. "Catching a cold" is actually the over activity of this nasal, eye and ear memDrane, wnicn contains little whisk. roomiiKe wmsKers- These cilia or "whiskers" in the nose sweep clean and toward the outside as long as all is welL But when Irritant bacteria, par ticles of dirt, deposits of dust, and animalcule settle all too comfortably upon mis lining, tne little straws or "whiskers" become more active, and the glands pour out a libation of serum. Eustachian Tnbe Collapse. Now your ears feel dull and puffed out. Tour eyes water. Tour nose runs. You begin to suspect there is something wrong with your physiology. Tou say you have "catarrh" or a "cold" which means that your machinery has slipped a cog. As the disordered physiology insinu ates its tentacles into the vent pipe of the ear the eustachian tube sound of whistles, of engines letting off steam, doorbells ringing, and all sorts of noises and deafness assert themselves. In a word, the vent nine becomes swollen or obstructed. Forcibly blow ing the nose lays the foundation of serious ear troume. xou not oniy oiow outward, but tne Inflammatory products I of the nose, the germs and mucus, arel .,. w,,rf. in th. ro- r t,J .... shot upwards into the target of the ear. The eustachian tube, if blocked, soon collapses, because the air contained in It Is absorbed and cannot be replaced. The same trouble which causes this reaches the little bones or "ossicles" behind the eardrum. These miniature anvils, hammers and saddles which they resemble are hinged together like your knee. .
