presses the hope tl la “veritabla

useless as the wall of China.
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
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.

“Here's another dime for your

"Thank you. sir.”
"And here's a couple for your chil

"Thank you, sir.”
"And here are two. three, four

Then Mr. Rockefeller turned away.
Lauder pocketed the dimes.

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.

1930 Jewels Are Luxurious
■ ---• I----K79=CT7
Modernistic Jewelry, set with diamonds, emeralds and sapphires.
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
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
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 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.
