And it is this high grade line of shoes, oxfords and pumps that you can now buy' at a saving of at least half, on every dollar. A look will convince you. be OUR NEIGHBORS' KIDS Dick And Bohby II Y ELINOR WOLF. "And have you found some nice little boys in the neighborhood to play with?" I asked with unnecessary solicitude as Hobby thrust out his hand without hesitation to place it in mine and looked up at me with an appraising air. "There aren't many boys." he an swered readily, "but there's lots of black dirt out In the back yard." And so Bobby lived up to his repu tation and proved to be one of the few whose genius is not belittled by ac quaintance. There are few geniuses who in their respective spheres have enjoyed the phenomenal rise to fume that has fallen to the lot of Dick and Hobby Hart. A few short weeks ago Chapin Hark didn't know that such individuals existed. Today just mention their names and note the expectant "Yes? What now?" with which the mention will be greeted. Dick and Hobby, three and a half and four and a half respectively, are the bobbed-haired sons of Mr. and Mrs. R. S. Hart, who. only recently ame to South Bend and took up their residence in Chapin Hark and already the fame of the bobbed-haired sons is preceding the fame of their doctor father beyond the confines of the neighborhood. Before they came to South Bend they had achieved names for them selves in their native town. Their fame locally, however. Is not a matter of report or hearsay. It is of most dramatic origin. Hobby, being the older, is ringlead er, but whatever his fertile brain in vents and his dauntless spirit executes is duplicated by the less matured but equally dauntless mischief in Dick. Hobby's leadership is Dick's inspira tion on all occasions, that is Ifow it happened that on this particular after noon he went upstairs to his daily nap without protest, for he followed an unprotesting Hobby. Mother won dered a little bit, hut then stranger things had happened, so she went gratefully on with her sewing. Presently the minister dropped in to make his formal call. The conver sation proceeded pleasantly for a while but soon hostess and guest began to wax abstracted. Their eyes wandered to the street in spite of themselves, and in spite of their effort to appear unconcerned curiosity soon turned to discomfort. Their discomfiture was due -to the peculiar actions of , neigh bors and passersby, not one of whom failed to gaze up at the house with expressions of amazement, amusement and concern and then abruptly turned away. Across the way one of the neighbors stood shading her eyes with her apron and gazing fixedly at the house as though standing1 uard. Other neighbors came out on their porches and looked over with faces in which horror and amusement struggled for expression. Wooser, Mrs. Geo. Wooster and Miss Leona Bailey comprised a picnic par ty at St. Joseph Sunday, ter Abbott, Manchester, Ind., returned yesterday after a week's visit with their uncle. Wm. Cordier, 210 E. Bowman st.

I! nd-up Sale Rise To Fame At last the conversation inside be t ame an erfort and the minister rose to go. He walked primly down the av enue for a few feet trying to appear oblivious to the charged atmosphere, but his curiosity got the better of him and his ho3tess, watching him from the window, saw him turn around and look up. His curiosity changed to open-mouthed amazement and then he quickly turned his head and walked away. When he had rounded the corner Mrs. Hart hastened out. sihe was met by the woman from across the way, who had been shading her eyes with her apron. She pointed up excitedly and Mrs. Hart followed her indication. There on the ridgepole of the gable which extends out over the porch sat Hobby, yelling and digging his bare feet into the sides of the sloping roof as if he were spurring a horse to high speed and hack of him sat Dick en gaged in like activity. But that wasn't all! Bobby was garbed in nothing but exuberant youth and Dick in not much more! It was a hot day and Bobby had found his clothes ai. in cumbrance. Next to nothing at all Dick had 'on an abbreviated shirt, an accident due to his haste to follow Hobby out the window. The horrified mother gasped and then sped into the house and up the stair:'. To the wonder of the neigh borhood she restrained her excitement when she reached the window nearest the gable. She poked' her head out and with all the composure which she could summon, called, "Bobby! Dick! Come here. Mother wants you." With her heart beating wildly she watched Bobby climb off the abruptly sloping gable with the utmost as surance and tread the perilous dis tance ,to her outstretched arms with out so much as a sustaining frown. But Dick, when he saw Bobby disap pear through the window to safety, began to get nervous. He began to whimper. The distracted mother knew that she could never trust her self to the sloping roof without trip ling the danger. Dick couldn't stand up any longer so he started to sit down again, but in doing so he got an inspiration. He landed on all fours and. with measured tread and slow, finally came within snatching distance. Dick and Bobby were no longer nonentities. Down stairs waited a flock of sym pathizing neighbors. They marvelled at the composure of the mother as she descended the stairs preceded by the unuqenchable Bobby and carrying the unquenchable Bobby and carrying "Oh, this is nothing." she said in reply to their exclamations. "They'll probably be doing something worse in half an hour." And they have been doing something every day since, but that was the origin of their fame.

Smart Kinks For Kiddies Coatees of fncy material over dresses of plain are fashionable for little girls. Little girls are always at their best in simple frocks. Rosebud trimming is always dainty for young girls. J Blue-and-white-striped linen make's I a smart one-piece dress for little girls. Sleeves for kiddies are either very long or almost at shoulder length. A good-looking coat may be made of white cotton corduroy or white pique, finished around all edges with wide embroidered scallops. A distinctive feature seen on most dresses for girls is the cowboy collar. Many little boleros of color will be seen at the seashore. .Much colored embroidery will be seen on dresses made of poplin, pique and linen. Man- dresses have the new sus pender effect.

Miller The state president of th Equal Suffrage association of Missouri, Mrs. Walter McXab Miller, has traveled about 5.000 miles by fast express, slow freight, by farm waffon and stag:e. talking to suffrage audiences numbering all the way from 10 to 2.0 0 0. It Is largely through her efforts that a sufficient number of names has been secured to the petition which will permit the suffraue amendment to go to the voters in Missouri next November. Fashion Fads A white voile dress with scarlet cherry buttons for trimming was noticed among the summer costumes. Emerald green and silver make a capital color scheme. Antique blue and tobacco brown are popular in combination. Tunics of tulle studded with steel beads are used on gowns of ehar- meuse or crepe de chine. Young girls are wearing corduroy hats which seem very youthful and becoming. Small square or oval buckles are used to faston waists instead of but tons. The week-end trunk is quite a nov elty. It is made of patent leather and has thrc trays. It Is lined with dain ty flowered cretonne. It is very light and is intended to take the place of the suitcase. A stylish suit for afternoon is made of wisteria poplin with the new short jacket. The skirt is fashioned with two rfppling tunics. XOTICK.

The Suffrage Movement And Womanly Beauty The newspapers happily have prov en by printing photographs of many suffrage leaders that they are up to the minute, both as to clothes and as to beauty and we contend modern women are beautiful because they have learned to care for themselves and study beauty methods. Then, too. we have found an astonishing thing namely that they have discarded face powder. The reason complex ions suffer so much in summer is be cause powder does not offer sufficient protection against the hot sun. A plain spurmax lotion not only safe guards the skin from the elements, but in itself is a beautilier of great worth. To prepare this lotion at home, dissolve 4 ounces spurmax from druggist's in 1-2 pint hot water (or witch hazel) and add 2 teaspoonfuls glycerine. This applied to the skin becomes invisible and imparts a vel vety softness and dainty tint to a rough, faded skin, relieving that shiny. oly appearance, and its use will insure a lovelv. clear complexion. DR. THOMSON'S EYE TALKS TALK NO. 251. One at a Time When yoj pick out a pair of ready-made glasses from fctoek you are trying to nt both eyes at once. That is something that the most ex pert eye specialists In the world can not do. Kach rye must be fitted separately and individually. There is a much difference between the two eyes In a large proportion of individ uals a! there Is between the eyes of entirely different persons. If both eyes are fitted at once you simply pick out the pair of classes that seem best to the pood eye. The eye that es best always determines the glass that is chosn. The other eye the one that should have the reats care and consideration has to put up with what see-ir.5 bet for the uood eye. The result is that the poorer eye sets worse from neglect. The only way to kep your eyes in the beit possible condition is to have each 'one fitted separately, by a man wh has made a study of the optical science. He will search out e ery imj-. ?rf ctioii of focus, every weakened muscle, every strained nrve, and put the eye Into perfect focus. Then he will do the same thins; to th oth-r eye. La-st. but not kat. he will -ce that the two eyes art- placed in perfect working harmony with one another. That is my business. DR. H. A.
