"M. G. A." writes; I broke a mir-

Ot mirrors are broken; every day in

that opals are unlucky. Suppose
you'found an opal mine, would yon
be unluckyT What about the deal
ers in precious stones who deal in
opals and are rich and happy? NO.
The only harm "signs" do Is what
we let them do to us; that is, we

Dear Miss Grey: eUly fingers

A - Keep the bands out of water
as much as possibly. Keep thent
warm and free from irritating dirt.

It is very, well lor the little folk

GIVING to them as well as receiv

to buy something is not really giv
ing. If a child can offer a gift that
he has made witli his own hands,
and on which lie lias spent the
thought necessary to lit to its
recipient, it will increase many
times the pleasure lie takes in it, as
well as that of the one who receives
il. Some suggestions are given
here that may help our little read
ers, especially, we nope, the very
tiny ones.
These would be appreciated by
any woman because they can he

stiip of tape is folded over at the

Buttons and buttonholes are sewed
to the edges below the waist line,
and when secured hold the apron

A Story for
Children's
Playtime
One day when Teddy's mother
s lit him to tlie store on an errand,
she gave him a nice new dollar
Uill. Teddy had never carried one
before, and lie walked proudly
along the street with tt spread out
in bis hand. As he turned a corner
a sudden breeze blew it right out
of his fingers into some bushes.
It all happened so quickly be
didn't see where the bill went; and
wliin lie looked for il. it could not
bo seen.
Now see what a bright boy Teddj
wiis. Instead of crying aobul it. as
some little boys would have done,
he sat down on the curbstone and
though! of this phut. lie would
stand in the same place with a
small piece of paper until the
bree/e came again, and he would
watch where the paper went, and
maybe that way he could find the
precious bill-
Soon tlie wind came tearing
around tbe corner again, and car
ried the paper Into tlie bushes.
Teddy followed quickly and search
ed, 'and sure enough, there was his
bill!
Wasn't that clever for a little
boy?
