tu m- - V then' what 9 m Reconstruction, of course! When the great war is over, shattered Europe must be rebuilt. Mediaeval architecture, crumbled by cannon, will be replaced by well-lighted, well-ventil ated, convenient and sanitary buildings of the present day. In this tremendous rebuilding, Certain - teed Roofing will play a leading role; for CERTAIN-TEED is the twentieth century answer to the demand for roofing that is economical to buy, easy to lay and inexpensive to maintain. CERTAIN-TEED Roofing is made in rolls; also in elate-surfaced shingles. There is a type of CERTAIN TEED for every kind of building, with flat or pitched roof, from the largest sky-scraper down to the smallesc residence or out-building. It makes a clean, sanitary, attractive roof, with a very low cost per year of life. It is guaranteed for 5, 10 or 15 years, according to ply (1,2 or 3). Experience proves that it outlasts the period of guarantee. If you are interested in roofs, investigate CERTAIN-TEED before you decide upon the type to buy. You will find CER TAIN-TEED for sale by responsible dealers all over the world. m The long life of CERTAIN-TEED is due to the quality of the roofing felt and the character of the asphalt saturation. This is a blend of soft asphalts prepared by the General's board of expert chemists. The highest quality roofing felt is thoroughly sat urated with this soft blend, and is then coated with a blend of harder asphalts, which prevents the dry ing-out process so destructive to ordinary roofing.

WASHINGTON GOSSIP Washington,—Robin Redbreast, hero of the story books and well known model in the bird, kingdom, lias been charged with leading a dual life. In the North, a sober, industrious, home- j i loving father, the allegation is that he spends his winters in the South in riot ous living. Even in Georgia, where state prohibition prevails, lie is report ed as having been seen drunk in publie. On coming North, however, it is said he always reforms. Asked for an opinion in the case of Cock Robin, Secretary Pearson of the National Association of Audobon Soci eties, recently in Washington, and au thority on birds and their habits, said he had frequently seen robins in the south so intoxicated that they seareely flutter along the ground. This misdemeanor is reported to oecur in the southern states where grows the China tree, also known as the "Pride of In dia,'' or "Persian Lilac.'' Robins sometimes eat the berries of this tree which, having absorbed rain water, from an alcoholic liquid which intoxicates birds, causing them to lose could j New 1917 Model DON'T FAIL TO SEE THE NEW IM PROVED 1917 FORD MODEL.

The China tree, scientists say, is very common along the lower gulf coast country, where it grows very rapidly and is a popular shade tree. Its abun dant lilac-colored (lowers appear early in the spring and .the leaves are re tained late into autuni, followed by clusters of yellow berries.

Advance Styles Seen in the Dresses of Satin and Figured Reflect the Mode of the Moment Striking Waists of Striped Silks Shops Silks New York, August. More than half the summer is already gone and interest is being turned to darker and heavier dresses anil hats. In both of these there is much to at tract the attention of those on the look out for new ideas in dress. A visit to the best shops shows many listinct styles on display. What is really most striking is the number of one-piece frocks and the large variety of them. Some are of serge and light woolens, others are of satin or silk, ac \ K V Showing New Arrangement of Gathers cording to the requirements of the woman who must have her wardrobe stocked with a dress for every occasion. In dark dresses the navy blue serge is to lie counted on again. Women never seem to tire of it, for it lias so many qualities which make it too good to give up, and no satisfactory substitutes has ever been found for it. While serges there are also, and they are truly fas cinating. Sleeves are long and some collars are high though the becoming sailor ollnr is still retained in many models. The skirts are full, the fullness being arranged in gathers, side pleats or un stitched box pleats. There have been rumors also of the accordion pleated skirt coining in again. A number of the new hats are in that most rich and wonderful color, royal purple. The material is velvet (fr satin or both combined. Another new color for lints is ruby red. Topping a black or navy blue costume one of these spots of color gives a most striking ami smart effect. But let us come back to the styles that are worn ,just at present. The Dress of the Moment If one judges bv popularity, the dress of the moment is of satin or figured silk. Gathers and pleats, long tunics and interesting collars are the features that attract most attention in the pres ent models. Gathered skirts are not new, it is true, but when all the gath ering is placed at the sides below the hip line and finished with a heading, MOTHER Mother's hands are folded now, Her gentle voice is stilled; The love light streaming from her eye, Will cheer our hearts no more. The old familiar songs we loved, At even tide to hear, Are memories of the long ago, We wish theyM linger near. The gentle loving words of hope, That cheered our fainting heart, We list and listing seem to hear, Their far away echoing» float. The fireside is cold and cheerless now, The vacant chair is dumb; It's still in the old familiar place, Just waiting for mother to come. We miss the gentle soothing hand, Our aching brow that stroked, And snugly tucked us in at night, Ere turning out the light. You'll never know what mother is, Till time's grim reaper bids, Her journey to the land of rest, You'll miss her then I guess. T. G. Bond. The will to do invariably sees that il is done.

The dress re ferred to has the waist cleverly de signed to harmonize with the skirt, for the lines on either side of the white vest would continue down to meet those on the skirt were it not for the soft girdle that comes between them. Designers are making a strong point of the long tunic again, and in many models they hang in several points, ns in the dress illustrated here. Dull and pleated at the waist, it hangs softly over the foundation skirt. As if to bal ance the ripples on the skirt, a large cape-likt collar is placed over the should ers of this dress. The cape-collar is till with us, a inong the many other dainty collars which are particularly noticeable on dresses and waists. Some of the col lars extend almost, if not precisely, down to the waist-line in the back, and those not quite so long manage to get the desired length by the ad dition of a circular ruffle or gathered frill. Still another favorite type of col lar is short in the back and very low out and finished with two points in front—quite the reverse of the other style.

WHITE State Sanitary Inspector Tn view of the general public inter est ami concern at the present time in the development of infantile alysis (anterior poliomyelitis) ii rions parts of the country the follow ing information relative to this dis ease compiled from a study of va rious reliable authorities is announced. There is no occasion for alarm in this state, yet infantile paralysis is serious enough to demand careful attention. Symptoms and Diagnois The onset of infantile paralysis is very much like that of other acute infectious diseases. There is nothing a bout the lirst symptoms so character istic as to make diagnosis certain until the inter development of paralysis. In most cases the onset is sudden with vomiting, headache and pain in different parts of the body, accomp anied by fever and restlessness. Fever is the most constant svmpton and is probably present at one time or «another in all cases. The tempeiature is usually lut) to 102 F., but may be much higher. In some cases the disease begins acutely, apparently terminates in 24 to 48 hours and, after a few days, re sumes its original activity. Certain other cases begin acutely and terminate completely without producing paralysis. These are the "nbsortive uses'' which are really diagnosed ex ept in the presence of epidemics. There is no svmpton of anterior poli omyelitis which is present in all cases except fever. The range of svmptons is large but, in individual cases, ex tremely variable. After fever the svmptons in the order of the frequency of their occurence are pain, headache, stiff neck, constipation, vomiting, tremor or twitching of mus cles, restlessness or irritability, drowsi ness, delirium, sorethroat, sweats and diarrhoea. Profuse sweating—a sympton dwelt upon in textbooks has been rarely not ed in recent epidemics. The nervous svnipions are the most characteristic in the disease and aid most in diagnosis. They are not con stant, however, and may not appear un til the development of paralysis. Rest lessness and irritability may appear early and may end in delirium in adults and in convulsions in children. This restlessness is often followed by drow siness. Pain is the most constant of the ner vous symptoms. It usually appears a long the spine. In tin* back of the neck and in the arms and legs. In some cases facial paralysis has follow ed severe pains in the face. With the cessation of the acute symp toms, tin* pain usually disappears; but pain on attempted motion and tender ness on pressure remain. Paralysis Sure Sympton Paralysis, which is often the lirst sympton upon which the diagnosis can be made, occurs at any time from one to seven days from the onset of the disease. In most cases, paralysis comes from in two to four days. It most com moniy affects one or both legs, but it may also affect the «trias, the muscles of the back the abdomen and the face. In some cases, there may tn* no paralysis of the limbs, the face, back or abdo men only being affected. in most cases the paralysis does not seem to progress after being lirst ob served. In certain rare cases, however, the paralysis is ascending in character. Homo cases give distant evidences of brain involvement. As to the outcome of the disease, a recent authority says: ''A percentage of persons, children particularly, die during the acute stage of the disease. This * percentage varies from Ö in eer tain epidemics to 20 in others. The average death rate of many epidemics lias been below 10 per cent. "Of those who survive, a part make complete recoveries, in which no crip pling whatever remains. This number is greater than is usually supposed. "The remainder, and, unfortunately, not a. small number, suffer some degree of permanent, crippling. Hut even in this class the extent to which recovery from the paralysis may occur is great. In many instances tin* residue of para lysis may be so" small as not seriously to hamper the life activities of the individual ; in others in whom it is greater it may be relieved or minim ized by suitable orthopedic treatment. "Even a severely parralyzed child who has made little recovery of funct ion by the time the acute stage of the disease is over may go on gaining for weeks, months, and even years, until in the end he has regained a large part of his losses. Fortunately only a small number of the attacked are left severely and helplessly crippled. as v DANCING PARTY Monday evening Mr. and Mr*.
