How to Make
A Baby Bright
"If your baby la bad and cross it’s
a sun sign he needs Teethlna,-' says
Mm. Clair McConnell, of Norman
Park, Ga. “That’s the way It always
was with my little boy. When he was
fretting and cross I would give him
Teethlna and then he was bright and
laughing again.
“Teethlna is wonderful for them
when they get older, too. I give it
to my seven-year-old boy and you
never saw anything do -so much good.”
The most frequent cause of fret
ting, cross babies is painful disorders
to their little tender bowels. Give
them Teethlna. Your mother used It.
It’s perfectly harmless.
Sold by all druggists, or send 80c
to Moffett Laboratories, Columbus,
Ga., and get a package of Teethlna
and a wonderful booklet about Baby.
Arabian Coffee Crop Good.
The return of more stable political
conditions In the Yeman regions of
Arabia, which for years have been
torn by tribal warfare, Is partly re

coffee crop will be unusually large
this year, and may very possibly ex
ceed the prewar figures, Consul M. P.
Cross, Aden, has Informed the Depart
ment of Commerce. The demand at
Aden for coffee is very strong at
present, and there Is every reason to
believe that the price levels will be
maintained, for the local production
never suffices for the requirements of
those who demand Arabian coffee.

Lausanne.—A spirit of uncertainty,
a nuie or pessimism, are apparent in
the near east conferences, yet the
chief delegations have pointed out
that the work of the conference was
steadily continuing and that the va

helpfully getting a clearer understand*

The gloom has been due to & variety
of causes, most of which are outside
the conference itself. Reports of
French precautionary preparations for
the occupation of the Ruhr, rumors
that the Brussels reparations confer

ment that the revolutionary tribunal
at Athens had oondemned the leaders
to death and the insistent claim that
the Mosul oil dispute was seriously
holding up the work of the commis

to the Turks in their general demand
for treatment on a basis of equity.

Colors are discreet for street wear.v
Black has not been abandoned, for

combining It with color, more often
brown or gray than the bright shades.
The browns. In the whole range from
deepest seal to pntty, are in the lead.
There are greens In almost all collec

One designer fancies clear forest green
for her Russian tallleurs. There are
a good many grays, more often smoke
shades than the pale tones.
Many gowns have rich reds In trim

reds are strong. Doucet has given up
his favorite combination of gray and
yellow for a new one of smoked gray
and mahogany. All this applies to
daytime wear. In the evening we have
a riot of bright shades, with a great
deal of white, and more sliver than
gold. Here and there Is a note of rich
purple. Royal blue Is used by some,
frequently combined with black.

Inquiry is being made as to hov
many and which of the supreme cour
judges are to be nominated in the pri

August, 1923. None of the supreme
court judges are to be nominated next
year. Nominations in primary elec

sore of Judge E. O. Sykes of the third
district, Judge John B. Holden of the
second district, and Judge George H
Ethridge of the first district, in 1924
Their successors are to be sworn in
on January 1, 1925. The successor ol
Judge Sidney Smith of the first dis

Circuit Judge Wiley H. Potter hat
held that the decision of (he supreme

null and void because of their flagrant

matter of submission rs well as failure
to receive g majority of all the votes
cast—in no wise invalidates the appro

appropriations, Judge Potter holds, are
perfectly legal under section 206 of
the state constitution, and lawyers ol
the capital city express the opinion
that Judge Potter’s opinion will be af
firmed by the supreme court.

Visitors to Jackson state that the
women of the various counties who
live in the country, many of whom did
not pay their poll taxes and register—
thereby being denied the privilege oi
voting in the primary this year—are
announcing their purpose to do so.
They have only until Feb. 1 to pay
poll taxes, and falling to do this, can
not register and vote, either In the pri
maries or in the general election. It
is stated that the women of the coun
try do not propose to neglect this mat
ter, as by doing so It gives the towns
and cities two votes to the country’s
one, as the women in the cities are
generally registered.
It is stated that there will be a large
number of candidates for the office ol
district attorney for the seventeen ju

for county attorneys for the 82 coun

Feat of Engraver That la Not Likely
to Be Duplicated for Many
.■ —■ ■
The bureau of standards it as re
cently asked to measure what la
probably the smallest piece of engrav
ing on glass In the world- The en
graving consists of the Lord’s Prayer
(57-word version) engraved on glass
In a space of .001 by .002 of an Inch.
The writing can only be seen under
a high-power microscope, the raanglfl
catlon required being from 900 to 1,000
times. The measurements by which
the above dimensions were determined
were carried out In tl»e laboratories of
the bureau.
The extremely small size of this en
graving will be realized when It Is
considered that If a square Inch were
entirely filled with writing of this size
the entire Bible could be written 25
times In that space—In other words,
something more than 20,000,000 words
could be written In a square Inch.
