Uverjea# should build up re sistance to disease. to sudden weather changes by good, vigorous exercise every day in the out-of doors and sushine. You can do It. ►and I can do it. no matter where we are. It Just takes perseverance and stick-to-itiveness. Th*»se preventive measures for health mean constant habits of right living. It does not mean too long a tramp one day, and none the next. Overlndulsrence in food or drink one night, and none the next. When we once have health, we must keep it. Our doctors will help ani do help immeasurably. But our fates are surely in our own hands. No physi cian can promise to cure every ail ment we have, but he can help in preventing it. Having a thorough physical ex amination at least once a year is not an entirely new idea. Thousands pursue this course every year, with the result that health promotion and the prevention of disease are intel ligently conducted affairs. Your doctor, consulted in time, prevents many an ailment that you may never know of. By consulting him you are conserving your health, and also you are in line to be cured of any incipient disease which may be lurking in the background. This matter of consulting your family doctor in order to conserve your own health and your family’s health does another thing. In the case of a patient who finds upon examination* that he has some in curable physical defect, he is able to take better care of himself, and worries less under the guiding hand of his physician than he possibly could when "lurking in the shadows of the morbidly unseen.” The moral qf this is. see your family doctor often for his counsel and a physical exammation. and so conserve your good health. Make yourself physically fit by an out-of doora life during the long Summer days. The conservation of health is "up to you.” Answers to Health Queries | M. J.

Eureka*) That startling appearance was not. as some might have fancied, a bit cf lunacy or of wild license. It was the culmination of a scientific quest. For the old man was Archimedes, great mathematician and scientist and inventor, and in the process of tathlng he had Just discovered the principle of physics which, on sus pension of bodies in water and cal culation of weight relative to that of the liquid displaced, enables the na-, tur» of substance to be ascertained The problem had been submitted #o Archimedep by King Hiero, of ^Syracuse, who. hating suspicion that a crown which had been fashioned #or him was not of pure gold, as rep resented. but was of an alloy with gilver—had called on him to deter mine the matter. The question Challenged the old scientist and long vtiaff'ed him. But on entering his 'The Stars Say— By GENEVIEVE KEMBLE.

He concluded that if bodies of equal weight in air. but of different substance, were im mersed in water, then the difference in the amount of water displaced would determine such difference of substance. And that—the principle which is now expressed in terms of specific gravity—was what he had discovered when, disrobed, he rushed out on the street in Syracuse shout ing: "I have found it! I have found it!" (Eureka! Eureka!) Therein showed the abandon to his science that marked and character ized Archimedes as it necessarily does ths great delvers In that realm. The concentration of thought, with accompanying obllvlousneae to sur roundings that was evidenced in his triumphant shout. (Eureka!) *'I have found it!" was the gift or attainment that enabled Archimedes to achieve his greatness. It was by that con centration that he arrived at the so lution of baffling mathematical problems and carried forward his scientific investigation and research until he came upon discoveries in physics that enriched the world. And to that same power are to be cred ited the inventions in which he ap plied the principles he had found, as he did in various devices of levers and in hydraulic machines and in obtaining high heat by concentration of the sun’s rays in mirrors wh.ch could by reflection be directed to dis tant objects with disastrous effects, as, it is said by some writers, was don® to the destruction of Roman ships in attack against Syracuse. And the aged scientist and mathe matician was still "carrying on"— pondering over a figure he had draSm on the sand at his feet—when on the fall of ths city a Roman sol dier. contrary to the orders of his general, "ran him through." Through the centuries that have since past that cry of Archimedes, "I have found it!” has been repeated by countless lip® in exultation over successful quest. Archimedes, great mathe matician, scientist and inven tor. was born of Greek parents in the Sicilian city of Syracuse about 287 B. C. He was killed when his native city was cap tured by the Romans about 212 B. C. Hats Are Chic Headliners I---— I HATS just now are headinera in the realm of fashion. It has been many seasons since we have been permitted such a diversity of millinery modes, and so this season should see every woman perfectly hatted and looking her best. For no other article of attire can make or mar the ensemble as can a hat, and, by the same token, it is the hat that can add beauty to a beautiful face and create beauty in a face that has little pretence to good looks. The jaunty little berets and turbans that look so at tractive on a youthful, fresh face should be avoided by the woman of mature years or lined face. But the effects of these same years can be almost obliterated by the right type of hat, with a flattering brim and a smart line that is capable of framing the face in fascinating shadows. The large hat of the garden party type is, of course, hugely becoming to the young girl, the older woman should see that smartness is the dom inant charaetertistic of her chapeau and avoid overindulgence in trimming of the boflowered garland order. Hair braid and straw lace make delightful mediums for the large hat intended for the matron, and for models of this type an exquisite pin or a twist of ribbon should be sufficient embellishment. The quintette of hats shown in the draw ing accompanying this article is quite represen tative of the present trend of millinery. The first model has a black bakou crown, and a green brim and is trimmed with black ribbon. The brim is usually long at the back. The hat im mediately below is in rose cellophane, its long sides, with the clever manipulation of the straw at one side, being of the current mode. Most suitable to a piquant face is the hat (at the top right) of ballibuntl edged with straw lace, with a white velvet ribbon as trimming. The hat in the center is of horsehair in pale gray with flowers of velvet in lavender and purple. A pic ture hat, indeed, that should be assured of suc cess wherever it may go. The smart little beret is of cire ribbon with a trimming of grosgrain. T?

"Oh. I see what you mean,” ahe said. "You think he’s plotting to kidnap me. or something like that.” I was thankful that she had given my warning this fantastic lnterpre-1 tatlon. instead of the more sinister one which I had meant.

"Well, Just watch little Mary mak ing a sticking plaster out of herself from now on," she rejoined, and ’her relieved tone told me that my assurance of protection had counter acted her fear of Noel’s father, who was so determined to wreck the ro mance of the two young lovers. “But how shall I act tonight?” she went on. “Ton know I can't see that old hyena without wanting to choke him, and he probably will highhat me so that it won't even be funny.” "I don't think he will.

I know, dear." as she winced. “It will be a terribly hard task for you. but there Is no need to antagonize the man unneces sarily." "IH be good." she said, “for Noel’s sake and for yours, but don’t trust me near a carving knife." I laughed, and after an instant she Joined in my mirth. But she was silent all the rest of the way home, and I knew she was dreading the coming hours unspeakably.

He waa only three inches high and mads of something cold and heavy, and when you stuck a penny in the little silt of his hat, he slowly turned round and round the tiny globe. That was the savings bank of a generation or two ago. and it made one want to save pennies. Perhaps today’s little boys and girls get a thrill out of the modern method of saving—giving money and book to a man behind a grilled window, and then receiving back the same book with a new entry. It's the way grown-ups save money, and Imitat ing grown-ups has some kind of kick.

Harry Underwood opened the door at our knock, and I was conscious that two men were standing with their faces turned toward us.

TIE Traveler was back from dis-" tant shores. He’d been down to the lalands where they hunt heeds for pastime. He had made the acquaintance of savage chieftains and had sat in the shade of a cabbage palm for hours with cannibals. He had lived In a hut with two pearl divers, who thought no more of stretching out their brown arms and diving to the very bottom of the deepest sea. than you and I think of putting up an umbrella when it be gins to rain. He lived for three months in the Sahara Desert with a wandering tribe that believes that all white men are Evil Spirits sent to the world to punish the brown men for their sins. In the deep jungles of Africa the Traveler had seen men—and naked men at that—telegraph to each other by means of a hollow log held above a certain spot in a certain running stream at a certain hour of the day. And the Traveler had sat in the ruins of an ancient temple built long before Columbus ever set sail from Spain—and he had eaten his tinned meats there quite as if he were at a picnic of the Ladles’ Aid Society in Central Illinois. We could hardly wait to get to the dinner to start the Traveler talking. There wasn't much chance at the Advice to Girls By NANCY LEE Dear nancy lee I am in my teens and I'm in love with a school teacher a few years my senior. I have asked her to go out with me several times and she has refused to go. I wish to have your opinion on this sub ject. but please don’t tell me to forget her as I have tried to many times. She has a lovely person ality and is liked by everyone. G H. C. GH. O: Of course the lady would not take you or your In vitations seriously. It would not be consistent with her position or with the type of person you describe her to be. And so I am afraid that there is no advice I can give you, except perhaps to ask you to step outside youreelf and Judge the matter as if you were an entire stranger. I think that you would be inclined to rate yourself as a rather foolish young man and the lady In the case as a very sensible young woman. rkEAR NANCY LEE: ^ I am a boy in my middle teens and wish your advice. I have been going with a girl for a long time, but we have recently had a quar rel and now do not speak to each other. So I am going with another girl and the old one Is trying to cut me off with the new girl. Should I keep on trying to win the girl? LONESOME BUD. Lonesome bud: it you have definitely parted from the other girl, there is no reason why she should Interfere with you now. or why she should seek to Intimidate you. Certainly, you should main tain your friendship with the young lady with whom you are now friend ly.

"Well, well.” '•Think of that." 1 The Aftermath^ * .. . And the wife of the host was quite thrilled by the sensation she was making, so she began talking about the principal of the school where her two girls were in the fourth and fifth grades. We heard all about the principal, who she was. who her brother mar ried. why she had never married and what sort of old-fashioned dre-ses she wore to school. And then we heard all shout the private theatricals the Junior League was going to give, who was to play what, the costumes, the scenery, the stage manager—oh. we heard a great deal about that stage manager. I never saw him in my life, but I believe I'd know him in the pitch dark right now. And the Traveler! He just said. "Well, well,” and “You don t say,” and "Quite so.” The Traveler has gone on his travels again and he may never be able to tell us a single thing we were all dying to hear. I do wonder what the host said to his wife, when we had all gone, and what the poor thing really thought of herself when he really said it. Don’t you?

Naturally he asked her to luncheon as she said she felt like a. “stray lamb.” I felt quite embarrassed for hav ing acted so badly, but Billy was per fectly sweet and said he was glad that I “could be jealous.” that it “showed I really loved him.” Aren't men funny?

"String for beans And straw for berries, What do you think You need for cherries?" —Shadow Song. . 44 1 what do you want thl* f“m piece of string for?” Kr.arf demanded of the gnomea. Master Knarf, the shadow-boy* and his shadow-companions—MU, Flor. Hanid and Yam—had gotten into a curious adventure. First ol all. they had gone sailing off on tha wisp of a feather (for, being light aa air. as small as pins, they had no trouble being carried by it), and when . the feather overturned they fell into' a deep, dark cave. On the way out they passed a door and. peering in, they discovered a crowd of gnomea with long green beards and green outfits which made them resemble green-growing things like cabbages and heads of lettuce. Strange to relate, the gnomes were searching for a piece of string. Aa It happened Knarf had found a pieco the day before and had just taken it out of his pocket to show his com panions when one of the gnomea spied it and hauled the shadow-boy inside the room, which had walls and roof of stone. It didn't take Knarf long to ex plain to the gnomes that he had not stolen the piece of string from them but had found It (it was really only a piece of thread) on his master’s coat. This the gnomes quickly be lieved and set him free at once. They kept the piece of string, however, "But what do you want it for?** Knarf couldn't help repeating. "Yes. what do you want it for?** the other shadows added. For a moment the gnomea gazed at them in astonishment as though they couldn't understand how any one could ask such a question. Then, pointing to a heap of fruits and veg etable# which were lying In tha ledges about the room, they replied: "The string is for the string-beans, of coursel" At this one of the gnomes, who had taken the string, tied up m bundle of string-beans and gave them to another gnome, who prompt ly vanished down one of the corridor* with them. The shadows now saw that beside# "We're Garden-gnomes.” the heaps of fruits and vegetables on the ledges there was a large heap of odd things and creatures standing against the farthest wall, such as a spinning-wheel, a goose, a horse, a chair, a bucket of water, some bluing, a crab, a pump, a cot-bed, straw, red paint, a wall, blacking, a rasp, and other things which couldn’t be made out. So inquisitively did the shadow* peer at these things that the gnomes began to chuckle, which made their long green beards shake as though the wind w»re blowing through them. At length the gnomes explained who they were and what they were doing. "We're garden-gnomee.” they re lated, "and we take care that all tha fruits and vegetables get what their names call for. String-beans must have string, strawberries must have straw, the walnuts must have a wall, the raspberries must have a rasp, the cot-bed is for the apricots, tha spinning-wheel is to spin the spinach, the blacking is for the blackberries, the water is for the watermelon, the goose is for the gooseberries, the horse is for the horse-radish-” “And what is the red paint for?* Tam interrupted. “The red i* for the rmdishaa,* Knarf replied. The gnomes nodded with a smile, “Yojire a very bright boy.” they said. "CSan you guess what tha pump is for?” "For the pumpkins?” "And the crab?" "For the crab-apples?” "And the chair?” Knarf had to think very hard at this one but finally answered, "For the cherries.’* Which was quite right. At this mo ment a gnome came rushing in with a bowl of mush. "Dear me," he exclaimed, "here la this bowl of mush and I can't re member what it’s for except that I know it isn't for the mushrooms-” This time Knarf didn’t know what to answer. Nor did the other shadow-children, nor did the gnomes. (Tomorrow—The Mysterious Mush) Cat' Tijfct. mo. Xeiwet Future Scmre.
