Franklin Mill s Hostess To Literary Club ; Officers Are Named Mrs. J. Franklin Mills delightfully entertained the Thursday Literary Club yesterday afternoon at her home on Belle street. There was a hundred per cent at tendance and a good deal of bitsiness was completed. Thep.Tognam was in charge of Mrs. George V- Boyd, and following the line of the. year’s study, Mrs. Boyd pre sented as her topic for consideration, “Elizabeth Barrett Browning", poetess and authoress. Mrs. Browning was born in London on Wimpole street, and was the old est of 11 children. Mrs. Boyd,; in a most . interesting manner, brought out the trials and vicissitudes of her life during the years of semi-invalidism, occasioned by a horseback accident, and her roman tic marriage late in life to Robert Browning, also a poet. Part of tnv. play, ‘The Barretts of Wimpole Street" by Rudolph Besier, was reaed by Mrs. Boyd. CHILD GUIDANCE By Frank Howard Richardson, M. D., F. A. C. P. Colic Why is it that, every child has to have colic —ten-days’ colic, six-weeks’ colic, three-months’ colic? s it indi gestion, or too much food, or failure of food to agree,or what? And do “colicky” babies grow up into strong boys and girls? Opinions change, fortunately among doctors as well as among folks in other walks of life And opinions have changed radically in the past few years about this matter of the neces sity of babies’ having colic. And here is what a great many doctors believe; and their expereienece seems to have convinced'them of the correctness of this belief. „ ... , Give a baby as much as he wants to eat, of a food somewhere near what is appropriate for him, they say, and that baby will never have colic. Not ■‘as often as’’ he wants to eat; but “as much as"—quite ad ifferent thing, you 3ee. Yet many doctors still believe that colic comes from overfeeding. Who is to decide, when these wise men dis agree? There is only one authority whose opinion is absolutely incontrvertible; and that is—but of course you know as well as I. t’s the baby himself! I have never known a baby to take too much of a fairly suitable formula, though I have known many to De given given too little. Try this cure for ‘colic” some time; and let the baby tell you whether it is sound, or not. He will! - Questions and Answers Question —I have been told that un less parents agree about everything they cannot expect to get obedience from theier children. It seems to me as though my husband and I do not agree on anything that concerns our children; yet we are devoted to each other, and 'never wrangle. Are we hopeless? Answer —Maybe that’s why Provi dence gave us two parents—so that we’l have an average, and strike a CW! . '^'y. Bee brand INSECT SPRAY si * East’s Ace took the 10 of hearts, and • club lead took dummy’s Iqst trump. Dummy ran off 2 good hearts, bringing matters to the eleventh trick. Then dummy had tc lead a diamond, giving West the fourth trick for his side, but he had to lead back a diamond, which South won. If East had bid 3-Clubs. South probably would have bid and made 3-odd at spades, but he was glad he d'' not need to do so North ® bid ding plainly enough showed that game should not be expected, and it was possible that North's shift from diamonds to spades might be merely a choice of evils. ♦ A 10 5 ♦AJ 6 2 ♦ 10 8 AAK 5 3 ♦Q43 2 ♦ 8 ♦ Q N. ♦ 10 9 8 7 ♦ Q 643 * 4J 543 AQJB7 s ♦K 5 A 9 4 2 ♦KJ 9 7 6 *K ♦AJ 9 7 2 A 10 6 What should West lead against a declaration of 4-Spades?

The program was unusually interest ing as this play has recently been pre sented in North Carolina and \n ginia. Mrs. H. H. Harper led the quiz on familiar quotations and their author?. It was decided there would be no program at the next meeting, as the afternoon would be taken up with a review of the year’s work and discus sion of the work for the ensuing year. The following officers were elected to serve during the coming year: President, Mrs. J. Franklin- Mills; vice president, Mrs. aseph B. Hicks, secretary, Mrs. H. H. Harper. The hostess, assisted by her daugh ter, Anne served a delicious sweet course with hot coffee during the so cial hour. Mrs. Mills guests for the afternoon were her daughter Mrs. Andrew Finch, and Miss Madolin Harper. Mrs. aJseph B.
