Winifred Black Writes on Meddlers Who Wreck Friendships!
A MAN, A WOMAN AND— A JEALOUS RELA T10N! Is’o Thought of Love or Marriage Between These Two, But the Designing Sister-In-Law Must “Break it Up”—A Companionship Lost! By WINIFRED BLACK SHE was glad to see him, awfully glad. And she showed it—why not? They Used to go to school together, years and years ago, in the little country school, and they went skating together in the \N inter and w ading together in the Spring, and they had stories to tell each other about teacher and teaser's pet, and about the old deacon who used to look around in church if anyone happened to giggle. And about the old orchard, where the strawberry “sweets” grew, and about the watermelon patch, and who married who and what became of Benny, and whoever heard any more about Bill and that invention of his that was going to turn the world upside down. They hadn’t met for years, the tnan and the woman, and the woman has had a hard struggle of it, she was left a widow with four children, and she brought them up and sup ported them and sent them to school. Now WINIFRED BIACK the two girls are married and the two boys are working and she went out West to visit a far relation. She heard that her old school tiiend was living in the next town, and she rang him up and he came over to see her. They got out some old photographs and laughed and cried o\er them and talked about teacher and how the wild blackberries used to grow in the garden spot where teacher hoarded. They had the time of their livrs and the Man ukod the Woman to bring her little granddaughter and spend the day at his ranch, and the Woman and the granddaughter were delighted. They’d never S'en a real Weste.m ranch, and they planned what they’d wear, what they’d do and say—and one day they got a letter from the Man, • sort of rool letter it was, paying he was going North on business and wouldn’t be there for awhile, and so glad they'd had the nice little visit and too bad they couldn't see his ranch, but some other time maybe—and that was that. And the Woman and the granddaughter were disappointed and sorry, and now it turns out that it was all the fault of the Man’s sister-in-law, The man is well to do, and has a good, prosperous ranch, and * nice car and a bit of money in stock and bonds, and sister-in law thought she and her children would get all then} nice things some fine day, and the minute she heard of the old friend from the East, she put in her oar and turned the Man against bis old friend in some secret way such women have—and now the whole friendly, pleasant little affair is over—for good, or for evil, which ever way you want to look at it. And it was all such a tempest in a teapot, because the woman from the East hadn’t the faintest idea of s love affair, or even a mild flirtation with the man, he wasn t a male to her at all, he was just an old friend who knew her mother and father and her little brother who was drowned, and it was a comfort to talk to him about the old days. Do you know what I hope? ! hope the Man will meet a designing w.dow within the next twenty-four hours and many her and settle ever}’ cent he ha.i in the world on her and when he die* 1 hope sister-in-law will ha'c to go to the funeral and behave like a decent human being for a few minutes.

CHILD’S FIRST TEETH Decay in “Baby” Teeth, If Not Promptly Attended to, May Possibly Find Its Way Through to the Underlying, Permanent Ones. By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D. Inited States Senator from New York. Former Commissioner of Health, New York City. WHKN the baby is born it is without teeth. One by or.e, or rather two by two, or in groups, they appear. The “cutting” or "eruption” of the teeth follows pretty closely certain rules. The teeth are in the jaw-bones all the time, but it takes time for them to develop in site and strength. In short, like the body itself, they must grow. When they get big enough, they crowd through the soft bone and finally cut their way through the gum. The first of the teeth to appear are the two at the front and center of the lower jaw*. These are called the "lower central incisors.” and they appear when the baby is from six to nine months of age. After the lower central pair come the upper incisors, not only the central ones, but also one on each side of the central pair, four in all. Th« e are cut at about the twelfth month. Then to match the upper group there appear two more lower incisors. By the time the baby is 14 or 15 months old there are eight front teeth. dr COPELAND four on each jaw. ... Within the next six or c gnt months a tooth appears at each side of the lower and upper groups. These four new teeth are called the “stomach teeth”, or the “eye teeth”, or the “canine teeth”. Nest we find a double tooth appearing .at the bark of each jaw on both sides. L-ster the vacant space* are filled In and bv the time the child is two or two and one-half years old he la the proud possessor or "•> teeth. Once In a great whi'e a baby Is hern with a tooth or two. In not c instance* the teeth are cut very early and in others much later than the average time 1 have given. The time of the teething ts de termined by the degree of nouri- h ment and the general w elfare of the child. So long as the child is strong and vigorous we need not worry shout th* teeth or about the teeth* ing. Many averages are broken bv Nature's own way of dealing with the individual problems. The £‘> teeth I have described aie the first te-th and in th*’ course of time these will b- replaced by the permanent teeth. At the age of sir veers or thereabouts the first of thr-o appear. They are "double •ceth" end are flared back of the hahy molars. Sometimes they a:e oa'Ied the “six year molars." Just because the first teeth are not to remain in ts no reason why they should be neglected They must he kept In repair so they will not drop out before tbs second teelh «r« ready. They are needed to help the development of their successors. Cavities In ths bahv teeth reouh" attention. If neglected, the decay may find Its way through the first underlying permanent tooth The child should be taught to care for his teeth and the parents should see to it that ’he habv teeth are Kept cl*”n and in good condition Aiwwcrs Io ftealtfi Queries t Q — How can * cam In weight-’ 2—What is tl** cause la ted eyelids? ...... 3.—What Is the cause «- nlgnt mares"?
