Pointing out that despite the massiveness cf the wall of China, the Tartars succeeded in scaling it, the newspaper opines that it will be difficult for the proposed “mili tary wall" to be made much more effective. The paper admits that Mexicans and Mexican liquor have been smuggled across the border, but says "adventurous" American cap ital has been responsible for these violations. i If the treasury u-partment's plan proves effective, however, Excelsior adds, it will work benefits both ways inasmuch as besides keeping undesirable Mexicans and drinks out of the United States it will oblige very desirable Mexicans to remain in their country and work for its progress.

Dwindling Coal Bins Threaten ‘Broke Chi’ CHICAGO, Jan. 27—*.T>—Dwind ling coal bins in the public schools kindled interest anew today in Chi cago's empty money bags.

Don’t be a martyr to unnecessary pain. Lots of suffering is, indeed, quite needless. Headaches, for example. They come with out warning, but one can always be prepared. Bayer Aspirin tablets bring immediate relief. Keep a bottle at the office. Carry the small tin in your pocket. Then you won’t have to hunt a drugstore, or wait till you get home. And don’t think Bayer Aspirin is only good for headaches, sore throats, and colds! Read the proven directions for relieving neuralgic, neuritic, rheumatic, and other aches and pains. Remembering, of course, that the quick comfort from these tablets is not a cure; for any continued pain, see a doctor. Bayer Aspirin is genuine. Protect your self by looking for that name. Always the same. Always safe. Never hurts the heart.

By MME. LISBETH Forecasts for the year 1930 are that milady will continue to be the luxurious and feminine person she began to be early in 1929. Both gowns and Jewels show this tend ency. In addition to the certainty that skirts will remain longer, there are already hundreds of dresses being made with shortened sleeves, either elbow length or little cape sleeve that reveals the feminine arm and its jeweled decorations. Jewels themselves are more lavish and handsome than ever, according to fashion prophecies. Jewelers are following in the footsteps of Paris originators, and are making jewelry pieces of finer gems, but arranging them in convertible forms, so that one exceptional piece will serve in place of several less expensive ones. For example, there Is the pendant necklace pictured, right, made en tirely of diamond links, and finished with an emerald as big as a dollar, elaborately carved. A necklace of this style may be worn, as pictured, with an afternoon dress; it may be turned backwards so that the hang ing portion fills in the decolletage o! an evening gown; it may be dis mounted by simply undoing the clasps and transformed into three matching bracelets and a fringed brooch. The other pieces of jewelry worn with this brown velvet afternoon dress are among those slated for 1930 success; the hip-brooch, of dia monds and platinum, in modern de sign; emerald and baguette diamond j earrings, in the approved drooping' manner; star sapphire and diamond bracelet; diamond bracelet-watch sapphire and diamond rings. The eternal triangle, according to Paris authorities, has become post-! lively fashionable. Paris jewelers are now usmg it as a symbol, and are making their most extravagant jetveled brooches in variations of the triangle. Pictured center is one j made of dozens of diamonds, set with four melon-shaped emeralds, to be worn with emerald and plati num bracelets and a ring set with an immense square-cut diamond. The stones in the brooch follow the Paris fashion of showing a certain number of stones that are cut flat across the top. Triplet Ensemble The same treatment of large cer. ter stone, diamonds and then sma sapphires, is used in the wrist bant | shown left, which is a bracelet ve. sion of the sapphire necklace. These I two pieces are pan of a triplet «r i semble, which includes a rim tl shows a larg? star sapphire, t high among diamonds and a pla mum band. The prophccied nyle rule—sim. clothes and lavish jewels—-cem * hold good, as witness t...s cost:: 3 of black velvet The omy tnmn : on the entire dress is conccnt.a J in the velvet bows at ea h e!b Every other bit of ornament is £ - tachable. The buckle at the wa.stlme is really a brooch—an animal pm set with diamonds and sapphires. The ring on the left hand, like its ac companying bracelet on the left wrist, is entirely of diamonds, -:ut in odd shapes. The diamond studded earrings are of the fashion-lmportan type that has such a vogue in Paris. They look like old-fashioned twin brooch es modernized in baguette diamonds, and Irns well below the chin line.
