Occasionally you meet aome one who luu the iruitinctive gift of penetrating any facial mask. -That fellow." you comment, '"ha eyes that look right through you. He can see to the botton of one'a aoul. He'i a good judge of char acter." Thia ia a gift that can be acquired. De velop it, aa one of your powers. It may aave you from a heavy los. You have observed the dif ferent expressions that flit acroaa a man's face as ko are something pitiful, strange, terrible, danger ous), ridiculous or new. Those expressions reflect emotions that have been aroused. The face, in early every case ia tha mirror of the soul. Each of us U dominated by some one emotion such aa fear, caution, recklessness, greed, generosity, affection or trickery, "hen the emotion is ex cited in the average person. th face responds with a betraying expression. When that emotion is frequently aroused, finally becoming dominant, it is constantly mirrored in the face. No difficulty in fathoming a man with a worried look, the man with a happy-go-lucky countenance- or the man with a greedy, eager expression. You know what to expect of them. When you look into any per son's face, merely ask yourself: "What emotion ia this face betraying?" That gives you "his num ber." Looks sometimes are deceiving. But this is the exception that proves the rule. Nine times out of ten, the face is a glaring billboard, easily j read, revealing character. The study of psycho-; logy, through analysis of facial expressions, is, being furthered by the movies. The film charac-, ters are constantly registering emotions, teaching , people the meaning of facial expressions. 1 hat gives you a great advantage. Your grandfather had no such teacher. His knowledge of facial, expressions was acquired slowly, by experience, j Fie had to reason it out step by step. Therein j ia the real intellectual value of the moving picture. It is making us a nation of shrewd phychologists. teaching us how to read the mirror of the hu-! rr.an face. This is a field in which men have much to learn.

H. C Louisville, Ky. The hand writing on the wall indicate that the Republicans have not brought about the changes promised in the campaign of 1920- and that the people; are not going to feel kindly to ward them in the elections of 1922. Some of the old war horses in the Republican ranks are al ready becoming alarmed at the feeling of discon tent and lack of confidence the people have in the Republican party, and can at this time see de feat for many of the Republican candidates, and with that comes the loss of control of congress and a tie up awaiting the change of administration. The Avalanche believes that the system of electing our representatives is wrong, and should be changed. Under the present system the President is helpless half of the time because of not having the backing by congress. The boys in the lower house and also in the senate play a block game for the balance of the time, and nothing but an expense account is accomplished. MAKE 'EM PAY UP! It has come to our attention that there is a certain place in Lubbock County, said to be a little to the left of a direct line to SI Won. where as many as two hundred men and boys engige in gambling. It has come to our ears that this was done on two nights in succrs-ion last week. Whether this be true or not we have to leave en tirely to reports, as we have not seen it, but our information was from one of our very best citi- i rens, and one whose reputation for bring con servative and truthful has never been questioned, and we are incLned to believe it. Of course there is nothing in this to convict anyone for gambling, but just to show the people vhat is really being reported on the people of th:s community. We do not know how to stop it, but we have an ink ling that if the law cannot stop it that the kay kaykays may. On Thursday we Become Owners of Ed Wilson's Grocery We have engaged in the Grocery business heretofore in Lubbock and you are familiar with the service we have given in the past.

Cash Grocery Successors to Ed Wilson Sanitary Grocery The delinquent tax list of Lubbock Indepen dent School District is being published and it is said the expectation is to realize considerable money for the schools of the district from un paid back taxes. It is manifestly unfair that those citizens who pay their school tax every year should have to help pay the burden for those who do not. The 1st in that school district had not been pub lifhed and efforts thus made to collect back taxes since 1916. Floydada Hesperian. A lot of people have the same idea about this and, they are going to see that thing are changed about. Few people object to being taxed, when there is equality practiced, or when all are given the same consideration in the payment of their taxes, but there is ground for complaint when some pay and other never do. and that feature is going to be changed in the future. Probably about the most important meeting of the year to farmers will be the meeting to be held at the Court House Saturday, December the third, which will be the meeting pertaining to the standardization of head grains, such as the sor ghums, maie, kaffirs, etc. This will be something on the order of the standardization of the wheat and other kindred grains. It will mean much for the farmers as it will no doubt mean better prices and hold out other important advantages. in Y'.hime 1, Number 1, "f 'he Aher-j nntfcy Review came to the Plainsman ' desk last week anl was d'lly enroll-j rd as the of fi ial exponent cf the nrm-permis Ahernathy section.

Come and see what ws hse. 17-1 We are glad indeed to see the report of the State Teachers' Association take a stand against cigarettes in the school. We stand with both feet in the ring against cigarettes and especially when usod by teachers. We believe that no person houid be allowed to teach in the schools who have not forethought enough about them to re frain from smoking cigarettes, and school trustees should absolutely stand pat on the proposition of refusing to employ any man, who use cigarette. It ia a settled fact, one that no man or woman can successful contradict, that cigarettes are injurious to the mind of the young boys, and everything should be done by the instructors in schools to discourage the use of the cigarette, and no one can have any influence except in the wrong way, who preaches one way and does another. We hope the State Teachers Association will take definite action in this question. o "I have always believed in the inspiration of the Holy .Sc riptures." writes President H irding.

The Avalanche man was asked the other day what he knew about who was gambling, etc. Well, if a person can attend a ball game between two oppoeing teams, and not be able to locate a few passing bets, one would have to be deaf and blind. One of the dancerj whose scant costume has caused comment even in New York declares lhat the less one wears the longer they will live. Our own observation is lhat the less women wear the faster they live. i The farmers in Lubbock county made a good ihowing this year and one reason thev hive is because most of them are diversificationists and have not depended upon one crop to pull them through. j Lubbock is working on the proposition of a free delivery system in Lubbock mail.
