Manager Editor Associate tilitr .er j :nean that the public considers the TUESDAY, JULY , 192 MY LAM'S TOES A woman with feet only 6' inches long steps into the spotlight in Washington City. She is Mrs. Carl W. Linker. She believes that she has smaller feet than any ether Ameri can women. Many women will envy her. Whether an extremely small foot on a woman is artistic, however, de pends upon her height. The standard cf beauty, established by the ancient Greek sculptors, I:clared that a foot to be artistic must be a sixth or a seventh the height of the rely. Chiropodists at a convention dis cuss the probability that women in another few generations will have enly four toes on each foot, instead of five. Tight shoes are deforming and dwarfing the little toe. Instructors at swimming pools frequently com ment on the number of women whose litt'.e toes have almost disappeared. Eack of this is the biological prin ciple that nature makes additions to the body when needed, and takes away parts no longer necessary. Thus fish in Mammoth Cave are blind, not needing eyes. A change of diet has made a long human organ shrivel into a small appendix. No matter how much people wail of that indefinite thing called evolu tion, it is perfectly well known that an unused organ eventually disappears. o-j'luok disciuratir.ir.

Mr. Simpson is and Mrs. Simpson is 65 years of age. They have 5 children and 19 grandchildren; all of whom were present except two. It was indeed a happy occasion for thi8 highly esteemed couple, w.l as for the community, as was testi fied by the presence of nearly a hun dred friends and neighbors who came with well-filled baskets, loading a ta ble 3 X 40 feet in size to its full ca pacity. After dinner had been served speeches were made by Rev. J. R. Warren, Esq. J. D. A. Secrest and Hon. J. J. Parker, all of which were splendid. The principle one was made by Mr. Parker, who spoke for about an hour. His speech was fine. His subject was character and virtue. He said that we need not fear, for this government would not fail so long as we have men of character and wo men of virtue upon these two pil lars we must rest if we expect to ex ist as a republic. We have known Mr. and Mrs. Simpson for over 40 years, and while they may not be richly possessed of this world's goods, they have the priceless heritage of character and virtue. For all these forty years we have never known Mr. Simpson to ut ter a profane word, nor touch a strong drink. Can you beat it? We believe in throwing a few flowers to a per son while he is living. We hope Mr. and Mrs. Simpson will live to have many more such reunions. A Friend. Why cut't .,!-! IV' iercs.in.; a-- ;!.;.
