Education Is a Process That Must Continue Throug h Life One Skin Bleach Easily Made . at Home By Josephine Huddleston. SOME women prefer a home made bleach for their skin, other prefer a bleach that conies all ready prepared, but one and all crave a clear, white skin. Today’s ar ticle is about a homemade bleach that comes from the farming comm unities of the Middle | West. Don’t £ behighhat a b o u t it though, just because it JOSEPHINE didn,t. origin , HUDDLESTON mci£e" it’s a good bleach. Tou know those Middle Western women are hard to fool and many of their own beauty secrets are well worth the 1 additional effort that all homemade i remedies require. This bleaching method needs com meaJ and buttermilk made into a creamy paste, which is applied to , the parts of the skin to be bleached ?• • • . and it works .... beautifully! To one cupful of yellow cornmeal add sufficient buttermilk to make a creamy paste and then let this mix tture stand. Wash with soap and j water the parts that are to be ' bleached. Rinse off all tra<'e of soap then, without drying the skin, l smooth over a generous amount of ’the cornmeal paste. I If it is the arms you wish to bleach ;wind a bit of bandage gauze about ;them after applying the cornmeal • paste. Keep this bandage moistened ‘ with buttermilk for half an hour, ■then let it dry out naturally. Remove • the bandages, remove the paste by •moistening it again, wash the arms with clear water, massage a sooth ing skin lotion into them and that ’ is that. t Usually quite noticeable bleaching ’results are seen after one treatment.: ■but in cases of severe tan or very j dark skin the treatment needs to be repeated, once each day. for a week or ten days. The same routine Is followed for bleaching the face and neck. How- j ever, you probably will find a large piece of gauze more convenient than bandages for covering the face. Fold I the gauze into several thicknesses so i that it doesn’t dry out so quickly j and then lay it over the face after | applying the cornmeal pack. Ten minutes Is long enough to I leave the pack on the face at one time, but it can be left on the neck for half an hour without serious in-1 convenience. Also, you'll find the; bandage gauze oasier for the neck treatment than a folded piece of gauze. In bleaching the hands it Is quite' elm pie to Just make a mash or paste of the Cornmeal and buttermilk and , hold the hands in it for fifteen or .twenty minutes. • And. whatever else you do. don t forget to rinse off all the cornmeal j carefully, and then apply the skin ; lotion. Tou may use cold cream in stead if you wish. _____ j Some Odd Facts The famous ruby forming the oen-1 tre of the Maltese Cross In the front of the Royal Crown belonged to Ed- j ward the Black Prince.

D. United States Senator from New York. Former Commissioner of Health, Sew York City, 11THAT are we to do for the effect* of arthritis? What are we to do to over* " " come the deformities and the stiffness of the joints and the annoyance resulting from the disease? I am not impressed with the various forms of massage and manipulation applied in some instances. While massage may be useful, there is no doubt that if severe manipulation is used, especially by an untrained person, great harm may result. In the acute stage, particularly, such treatment is dangerous. On the other hand, after the acute symp toms have disappeared, it is important to exer cise and move the joints. They must not be per mitted to remain motionless. If they are allowed to become fixed, the joints will become perma nently stiffened and bent into uncomfortable positions. Of course, it is difficult to overcome the psychology of these cases. The victim is afraid to move his joints. He is afraid it is going to hurt You must exercise a lot of will power and persistence to over come this desire to keep the part fixed. However, unless there is this movement and exercise there Is sure* to be deformity and permanent Im pairment of the Joint. One of the most Important things to do Is to encourage the victim of arthritis, after the acute symptoms have subsided, to exercise his Joints and make all the use of them he possibly can. This Is essential. The application of heat, the use of baths with the massage are very useful. If the victim has wrong eat ing habits they must he corrected. I took pains to ascertain what the great specialists of the country are doing in the control of the bad ef fects of arthritis. It is interesting' ► —————————————— ■ to find that In their clinic* the vac cine treatment is used. You may think it funny, but it appears to make no particular dif ference what vaccine is used, so long as it is one capable of creating some reaction. The typhoid vaccine Is a favorite one. Almost any of the so called foreign proteins or other for eign substances like mercurochrome. silver compounds and milk prepara tions seem to pr«x1ijre reactions w'hlch excite the defensive mechan isms af the body. The Injections are given every five or six days for a month or two. If they result In re HOME-MAKING HELPS By WANDA BARTON How About a “tte-Good-to-Your-Feet” Week? THE weeks are fast being taken' up (or various celebrations of more or less benefit to the race, so we decided to grab one for our own use. That Is for the feet. Good, kindly and willing feet, overworked and poorly cared for as a rule. Look down upon your own feet now and consider what you have left undone for their comfort and well-being, and the abuses you have heaped upon them and promise better things for the future. Warm weather Is hard on the best cared for feet; misery for those not well cared for. One point we can settle immediately, and that is the chiropodist is not an extravagance but a blessing, and should be visited once in six weeks or two months, oftener if the feet are specially trou blesome. We seldom stop to think that our bodily conditions are re flected In the feet. If the system has more acid than It should have the feet are apt to show signs of rheumatism, the nails may thicken and the feet puff and burn. We blame the condition on shoes, stock ings or standing too much. An au thority on the subject would explain the matter and show ue ways of alleviating the difficulty. Corns and other blemishes are due to different cause*. Most of them If met correctly, can be mitigated or 'cured entirely. Standing on our feet, walking freely, dancing and getting about the house, shop or factory, re quires normal healthy foot condi tions. We can help and preserve the right conditions by having ex pert advice and attention frequently and by our own daily ministrations. The morning bath should be followed by a quick massage with a comfort \ lng powder, flower of sulphur if the feet perspire, lacapodium if they burn, or Just the ordinary talcum if they are not troublesome. At night the luke warm footbath will be a comfort with a little bak ing soda in it. if the day has been warm and the feet busy. Follow the bath with a light rub with any of the cooling lotions or creams that come for the purpose and a dusting of powder. It Is wonderful what such care will do for the well-being of the normal foot. Stockings should fU the feet easily, not too large or mrt In any way tight. Some find silk unpleasant to wear and prefer a lisle thread or light cotton, a matter for each one to decide after a trial for themselves. The stockings ought to be changed daily. If fragile silk Is worn lay the stocking feet into a box of cornmeal a day. then wear them a second day without laundering if desired. After laundering always rub the dry stock ing through the hands to soften the fibers before putting It on the foot. Copy'Ubt. 1>2*. Naxrtoirv l>»tur» Sunie*. ioo. lief, they are continued. Otherwise they are dropped. I simply speak of these matters in order that you may talk them over with your doctor, but it Is Important to know that there is some prospect of relieving these cases of obstinate arthritis. In the cure we depend upon heat, massage, education tn the necessity of movement, the vaccine treatment I have mentioned, and such remedies as your doctor may consider desirable.

MIND NOT MERELY GRANARY OF FACT Trained Brains That Gather and Correlate Knowledge for Useful Purposes Are the Only Ones That May Be Called Educated. By DR. LOUIS E. BISCH. Eminent Psychologist. THERE is a popular conception of education, frequently voiced, that is incorrect. The mere fact that it is incorrect would not matter so much were it not that such ideas tend to turn people. I especially younger people, against wanting an education. Education does not, for instance, mean an accumulation of dry facta. Education does not mean the remembering of dates in history. Education does not mean having read a lot of books. What education actually means is training— training of the mind! The subjects and facts that one gets in school and college are employed essentially for that purpose only! Education is the unfolding and development of latent possibilities. What one studies, learns or memorizes at school is merely the material through which the various mental faculties are stimulated. Mathematics, for example, develop the rea soning powers better than any other subject. History broadens the perspective on life and enables you to interpret current events with L.OUIS L BISOi intelligence. Literature adds to your vocabulary, gives you an insight into human nature, and makes you more sensitive to the beauties of life. Education does not set out to put something in the student that Isn’t there. Education can only, develop potentials and possibilities If a person possesses only a fow degree of intelligence, of native In tellectual endowment, no amount of education will ever make him superior. Such a person may acquire a sort of veneer, because of the facts he has assimilated, but such a surface jtv.ish is readily detected as fraudu lent. Education does not. and cannot, bring out what isn't there, at least in embryo. What's more Important still, you and everybody, no matter how old you may be. no matter tfow little schooling you may have had, can educate yourself. Read, study, profit by experience— that Is education—that you can do by yourself quite easily. ► "" .. Education is worthwhile even In small doses at irregular intervals. Never stop educating /ourself! Even a college professor cannot afford to do this! If hs did he would soon grow stale. Take up the studies that Interest you before you take up tWose which bore. In this way you will keep your mental machinery alive and alert. Then study some language or science, anything that requires more special effort on your part. Thai will awaken dormant brain ceflls. But whatever you do. keep exer rising y*>ur mind as you would youi body. Keep vour mind alive through education. Copfrtsht. tttt. N*w»p*p« r»«tiir» St nit*. Its Famous Composers By COZETTE DOUGLASS Alexandre Charles Lecocq. Alexandre lecooq wasonej of the moat famous of the] French composers of operettas. He was born In Paris on June 9. 1832 and was admitted to the Con servatoire In 1849. being at that time an accomplished pianist. At thei Conservatoire he studied Harmony ’ with Bazin, composition with Halevy and the organ with Benoist. winning first prize for harmony tn 1850 and second prise for fugue In 1852. Public attention was first attrac-, ted to him when he divided with Bizet the first prize for the operetta "Le docteur Miracle." In a competi tion which had been instituted by Offenbach. His first real success was "Fleur de The” produced in 1868. This operetta had a run in Paris over j one hundred nights and was also! ' successfully produced In Germany and England. One success after the other came from bis prolific pen and the oper ettas which he produced met with almost phenomenal success. Over forty operettas, comedy operas, and romto operas his gifted pen gave the world, and for finish of Instrumen tation and careful writing they are h*-ld to be superior to those of Offenbach and Herve. In 1894 Lecocq was made a Cnerva* iler of the Legion of Honor. Perhaps the best known of Le eocq’s operettas is *‘La Fille de Madame Angot" which ran for four hundred consecutive nights in Paris, and has since then gained and re tained Its initial success and popu larity. Lecocq died In Clifton, Guernsey, on February 15. 1911. Love’s Awakening Steadfast Woman. j l --By Adele Garrison Marion Morton Exhibits Her Secret “Fortunen to Madge, Exacting a Pledge. FROM my early childhood the* Idea of a secret compartment in a box. or a bidden sliding panel In a wall bas Intrigued me. I know that 1 am not alone In this, that thousands of people with ro mantic imaginations, share my lik ing. even though they feel con strained. as I do. to hide their feeling from their harder-headed rela tivea and friends. But there waa no need to conceal my Interest from Marion as she pressed the hidden spring which threw open the bottom of her dead grandmother’s old sandalwood box and disclosed the secret compart ment beneath. Her fingers were trembling, her face aglow, and I realized that her excitement waa far greater than mine. I tried to call my common sense to my aid and to tell myself that the long envelopes crowded into the bot tom of the bbx held only the finan cially worthless letters and keep sakes of an old woman !6ng dead. But 1 could not banish the eerie impression which Marion’s recital of her grandmother’s Injunction had Just made upon me. It was the mtost fantastic Idea possible, that Tom Morton, who had died practically a bankrupt, should have entrusted any "fortune’’ to his aged, almost senile mother, to be kept untU the girl was eighteen, yet my Imagination kept dallying with It as Marion lifted the envelopes fiVvm the bottom of the box and laid them in my lap. •*I want you to look at these. Auntie Madge.’* she said with an at tempt at being business-like which was prettily amusing. “Then we can check up on them when we open the box again, or you can. if any thing should happen to me.” With the consciousness that my excitement was as childish as Ma rkin’s. I picked up the envelopes and scanned them carefully. They were three in number, strong, and sealed In several places with sprawling blobs of red wax. On each was writ ten In the tremulous chirography of an old and ailing person: "For Marlon Morton when she shall have reached the age of eighteen years. Not to be opened until then, or In the event of her decease, by her nearest heir.” I had a sudden vision of the heart broken old woman who had scrawled those words for the grandchild she idolized. Tom Mbrton had caused his old mother much sorrow, and his death had left her penniless. Lillian had cared for her tenderly until her death, and I knew that the old wom an'* heart had held loving gratitude for her daughter-in-law. Yet with the perversity wlilch is so often a concomitant of mother love, she had ignored her son’s wife In this legacy and laid the eerie Injunction upon a tiny girl, for Marion had been Just past her babyhood when her grand mother died. With a harassing sense that I. too. was being disloyal to Lillian, al though I knew that my friend would sanctk>n my course if I were free to tell her of It, I handed the envelopes back to Marion. "I shall remember that there are three of them, and the inscription on each.** I told her with the gravity which I knew she exj>ected from me. "Thank you. Now X feel safe about them.” she said, laying the en velopes back In the secret compart ment of the box. and closing the panels which formed the bottom of it. "See'** she said, holding it out to me. "the two parts are so cunningly Joined that you cannot tell where the line is.” . “It la a marvelous piece of work. 1 agreed, “so perfect that I am sure you would run no risk of anyone's discovering the secret, if you left the box locked In your cedar chest In your own room as you have done before.” "Mr. Underwood hadn't come back, then.” Lillian's young daughter re turned obstinately. "It's been his business to ferret out secrets. I won't feel easy a minute unless It’s in your care, where he will have no chance even to see It.” She put her grandmother's Jeweled trinkets back in the top tray, locked the box and put the key in an en velope which ehe sealed. Then she brought out from her closet a strong pasteboard carton which she evi dently had procured for this specific purpose, and into which she put the box and the envelope holding the key. When she had securely tied the carton and written “Marion Mor ton” on the outside of It. she gravely handed It to me. “I'm trusting my 'fortune* to you. Auntie Madge.” she said with an attempt at mockery. But though I smiled at her as though appreciating h*r Jest. I knew that In optimistic girlish fashion she was cherishing romantic visions of what she would discover when her eighteenth birth day should warrant her opening the mysterious envelopes. Copyrtcht.

"Is this where the little girl who has the breadtrea lives?” . _ "Breadfruit, breadfruit!” exclaimed • little brown girl whom fKocome back had stopped to speak to.

Some of it was green, some brown and some was yellow. "That's our breadtree and that's the breadfruit.” said the little brown girl and she gave Betty a taste of some of the breadfruit that had been baked In the fire. "We folks of the South Sea Islands couldn't get along without It.” *'How funny,” mused Betty, ”it tastes something like our baked po tatoes.
