or six inches in diameter, and make a A

as indicated, A, B and C can be cut
of equal length. Strip D must be is
enough longer to provide for nailing It

Fig. 1 shows the homemade filling n

the framework are 11 inches long. 1 a
inch thick and 2 inches wide; and the
cross blocks B and C are 4% inches
long-B of the width and thickness
of strips A, and C a piece of 2 by 4. t
This framework is to be slipped over c
the end of a clothespole; therefore, in
assembling its parts, fasten strip B

clothespole will fit snugly between
them. Cut blocks D (Fig. 5) of the
proper size to make the opening of

pierced through opposite sides for a

the bolt, through strips A near their
open ends, and through two blocks E.
Blocks E form washers to keep the

HARMLESS PRANKS FOR APRIL
Nobody objects to being tfooled on
April first, providing the prank Is free
from every element of danger £hat
might result in personal injury or I
damage of some sort.
During the early morning, the clock I
is probably the most looked upon ob
ject in the house. Therefore. if it
develops an extra pair of hands over
night, the abnormality is not likely
to escape anyone.
Figure 1 shows a four-handed clock, I
and Fig. 2 how the extra minute hand
and hour hand are cut out of black
paper. Paste the hands in place.
One of the most surprising and an
noying things for father or mother
to discover is a fresh crack across
the corner of one of the large panes
of window glass. You can make a
perfect imitation of a broken window
pane by gluing a piece of cotton wrap
ping-twine to the glass in the manner
indicated in Fig. 3. Put only a touch
of glue here and there, where you
make a turn with the string. I have
never known this deception to fall,
even when the person examining the
window has stood but three feet away.
Quite as startling as the "broken"
window pane is the sight of an over
turned' ink bottle upon one's writing
desk. The ink bottle used in this
prank must be empty, of course, and
the spilt ink must be represented by
a piece of black paper placed so as to
extend up to the mouth of the bottle.
You will have the job of cleaning up
after playing the paper-shower win
dow-shade prank, but never mind the
work, you will have had your fun.
Take down the window-shade roller
from Its fixtures, unroll the shade,
scatter paper over the unrolled por
tion (Fig. 6), then roll it up again, and
replace the roller in its fixtures.
Father or brother may be greatly
excited upon seeing a stick appar
ently running right through the crown
of his every-day hat (Fig. 7), but
this prank does no damage in the
least, because the upper end of the
stick Is sawed off (Fig. 8), and only
a needle runs through the hat crown,
to join the two pieces.
The flutterer shown in Figs. 9, 10
and 11 may be malled in due time to
be received on April first. By having
it come by mail no suspicion will be
aroused. The flutterer consists of
two rolled-up pieces of paper, folded
over, and connected by a rubber-band.

CHARM IN MOBILE MOUTH
Point of Beauty Which All Women
Should Do Their Very Utmost
It is said by physiognomists the
mouth is the feature which most truly
expresses the character. Mouths have
won more men- for women than any
other feature. A man when away may
forget the glance of an eye, the shape
of the face, but some expression of the
mouth still remains with him perma
Many women who have no other
good feature seem to be beautiful be
cause the mouth is bewitchingly at
tractive, and tells of a soul that is
big and fine. It is an easy matter for
us to do for the mouth what nature
did not do. Of course, we cannot
change the marking of the mout) but
we can change the lines about It. No
mouth. no matter how beautiful its
contour, is attractive if it pulls down
or remains immovable in tight.
The mouth is the most mobile of
all our features. It is claimed that
those who talk, sing and laugh fre
FRESHENING UP THE GOWN
New Collar-and-Cuffs Sets Are a Boon
to the Woman Who Is Forced
If a woman cannot afford a new
suit this spring she can add to her
old outfit a new collar-and-cuff set,
which will give it at least one up-to
date feature. The leather sets are
most attractive, and as they are in
expensive, the. suggestion is not out
of place. The sets can be had In al
most every color-old blue, rich green,
old rose, champagne, tan and white.
The edges of the collar and the cuffs
In washable neckwear the large
deep collars are among the leading
models. Those women who were un
able to follow the fashion of high col
lars will be relieved that the low and
semilow necks have been revived.
Collars of this type resemble the Puri

in the making of these are plain and

many of the modish frocks are of

Mrs. Ida Ford lives In Cubs, Mo.,

"I have tested VapO-Rub three

Vick's Vap-O-Rub is the invention of
a North Carolina druggist. He found
how to combine Menthol and Camphor
with the volatile oils of Eucalyptus,
Thyme, Cubebs and Juniper in a salve
form, so that, when Vap-O-Rub is ap
plied externally, the body heat re
leases the ingredients in the form of
vapors. These vapors are inhaled
with every breath, through the air
passages, to the lungs, looseninl the
phlegm, and, In additign, Vick's is ab
sorbed through the skin, taking out
the tightness and soreneas. This
double action makes VapO-Rub useful
for a wide range of troubles. From
innlammations of the air passages,
such as head colds, catarrh, asthma,
sore throat, bronchitis or deep chest
colds, down to Inflammations of the
skin and tissues, such as burns,
bruises, stings, piles and itchings. We
particularly recommend it for mothers
with small children, as it can be used
freely, with perfect safety, on the
