He does not care if they adopt it to their personal uses. , Most people will sgre that Garland is fool ish. If Garland's father bad cut his son off without a dollar and" left historian to charity the public -would hare condemned him. as an unnatural parent. Parent bring children into the world to provide for them and rear them to be happy and useful citizens. Young Garland could do more in' making himself a valuable citizen were he the posses sor of a million dollars than in his present financial condition. True, possession of the fortune might not increase hia personal con- N tentment, bat be could employ it in adding to the happiness of others. He would not have to send it to a foreign country or spend it in enterprises In which he might not be interested. He could use it closer to home. For instance, he could build and maintain playgrounds for children. He could erect and endow a hospital for the poor. , He could establish and maintain a community center a few blocks from his own heme. Wealth may be made either a curse or a blessing. Young Garland is missing an opportunity to do good. in the world. He would not have to spend one dollar of the million on himself and his family. He. could spend all of it jan others less fortunate than himself. The happi est people in this old world are not those rich in dollars, though it is not a disgrace to be rich. But richness has its greatest ful fillment in unselfish sen ice. And those in pos session of fortunes are coming more to live and appreciate" that fact. Garland is neglecting a Christian duty declining to perform a service to humanity that it is within his power to perform.

DY WILUAM BRADY MD. Monro Weak Eye sad Strap; Eyes. Byes which ere clear and free from redness or congestion are not necessarily strong eyes in the sense will "strengthen" them. A. great many reader ask wheth er horic add solution or some oth er medicament applied to the eyes will "strengthen" the eyes.. Boric (formerly called boraclc) acid dissolved in water . freshly boiled, say about naif an ounce in a pint of boiled water, make an antiseptic and comparatively non irritating solution for bathing the eyes or dropping in the eyes, pro vided there is need for an antiseo- gently employed. I can assure the reader that thera can be no more valuable exercise for the eyes than reading, looking at thing easy to look at, beautiful things, I mean, natural or human, if yon follow me. In various nasal troubles, such as overgrowth or thickening of the lining of the nose. or of the tur binate bodies of the nasal cham bers, the eyes are likely to be red or congested. In inflammation or Infection of the air spaces (sinus es) of the skull, the eyes are often affected, in looks as well aa in func tion. A great many individuals have low grade chronic inflamma tions of the lining of the eyeuas tic. In many acute inflammations ' which cause redness of tbe eyes. of the eye or eyelids or rather the unlng of tbe eyelids, there is need for an antiseptic and the boric acid solution may be freely and fre quently applied for days or weeks In such cases, with benefit and comfort But it is futile to apply antiseptics to the eyes over pro longed periods and, in my judg ment, even . boric acid solution should not be used for more than a few weeks, unless by direction of the oculist. very ! 11 13 unnecessary ana maaosaoie - I to apply any drops or wash to the : Coal in the Making. Peat is not a familiar fuel in the United States. . t i More attention is being given to peat now sthat it is realised that coal, gas and oil fields iare not inexhaustible! . . ' s iii Peat is coal In the making. It is the decay ing vegetation which has flUed a lake and (turned it into a bog. There are great peat 'jbed in this country, seme of them in Michi gan and .Minnesota. ' lij The chief difficulty has been to. devise a machine which will dig and dry peat eco nomically. It is not practical, to cut peat by liand as is dons abroad. Three months of sun . ;sbine are required to dry the bricks of peat ijtut from a marsh by hand, and it Isn't prac jlical to dry them by baking. That would re quire mor fuel than would be contained in - lite finished product. r Minnesota experiments have produced a Machine which digs the peat, grinds it, and spreads it on the ground in a thin layer which dries quickly. Ths is a large machine which Is said to produce a ton of dried peat at a wst of $2.25. r ) Refuses a Million. Jl Charles Garland, a Massachusetts resident, .has refused to participate in a bequest of jt 1,000,000 left by his father. Garland's wife jipiicurs. The Garlands are in moderate cir cumstances. Both are young. They have one ctild. Garland' rejection is based on the con clusion that inasmuch as he did not earn tbe jjyealth he Is not entitled to it, He said to Accept It would be contrary to the teachings 'of Christ. He argues that each of us should ;(.av only what we earn by our own efforts. u ine oariana wealth is lpft in trust Ve Must Have Thrills. Gaston Chevrolet, famous automobile racer. was killed yesterday at the Los -Angeles speedway. People who pay to witness such, contests are "thrill seekers. They like. to see others Birt with death. When a machine traveling ar hundred miles an hour turns over their emo tions are attuned to htar that the worst has happened. Of course they don't' want to see auj body killed, but if a life is snuffed out Uiey accept it as the eventual fate of one daring enough to stake his life in a perilous battle, and they return from the scene of the grind ccLgratulaiing themselves on having witnessed a wonderful exhibition of skill and daring. The tragedy, not the race, becomes the sub ject of discussion. The headlines of the morn ing newspapers didn't carry the name of the Vttnner of the Los Angeles race, in the place of the winner the name of the loser was printed. It was that of Gaston Chevrolet. There have been and will continue to be protests against such exhibitions as cost the lifo of Chevrolet and which have sent many others of his profession to their graves, but they wffl be of no avail. As long as there are individuals willing to steer the wheel of a car traveling a hundred miles an hour there will be racing exhibitions, and there will be fatalities. However, some day auto racing may cease, but that day will come only when the element of danger is eliminated. If the proirioters of speed contests would announce positively that there would be no accidents the race would be staged before empty seats. It's the expecta tion of thrills that draws the crowd towards the' gate. There is no longer much of a thrill to the excitement loving American in seeing several drivers following each other round a circle. That's old stuff. But the possibility of a clash or a spill, of two or more of the whizzing ma chines being reduced to Jitak and may the Lord be good to the driversrr-that's what ,hf ings the dollars to the promoters. It stems to me we had a few small dumplings, A little celery, olives one or two ' Seme whipped cream on pumpkin pie, sir, but, believe me, I don't lie, sir. When I say twas very little for it's true.

I eye habitually or daily. If there is foreign matter in the eye or un der the eyelid it may be washed out by gently pouring over the eye ball, while the eyelids are held open, a comfortably warm -solution of a heaping teaspoonful of com mon salt in a pint of boiled water from a spoon or frorn a blunt medi cine dropper; The purpose of the salt is simply to render the liquid about the same saltiness as the tears and hence non-irritating. Plain water smarts tbe eyes, where as this "normal salt solution" does not The salt has no medicinal virtue aside from this. Many solutions are marketed under extravagant claims for strengthening the eyes. Then, too, there is an absurd notion that eye sight may be strengthened or the eyes may be strengthened (In ap pearance) by certain exercises.

Can one live with only one kidney? Is this the trouble commonly called gallstones? Mrs. C. R. , Answer Stone in the kidney is very different from gallstone (stone in the gall-sac).

She looked out over the white, dusty road, the green f elds and beyond, where the almost Met iterraneaa blue of the Atlantic ocean sparkled. The canal writhed along there like some huge sapphire ferpent The salt air struck grate fully on her cheek. Then she spoke. Her voice, low and caress ing, had a slight stumble, an en dearing little stumble that sounded foreign. "The sun Is quite too blinding to sit on ttys porch. I've some iced tea in the library." To the stranger's unspoken question: "My Sam, ha is in Boston for the week end." Cherry Haines was a small, little creature with taut nerves, steel muscles (it was rumored that she was a student bf Jiu-jitsu) and long, tapering, cream-colored Au gers that locked and unlocked now nervously. Her hands were typi cally Japanese. Her skin, too, was cool, creamy, strangely tranlncent and unflushed. by the heat. Her eyes were almond-shaped and black. Above a calm, high fore head her coarse black hair was colled smoothly. ' A filmy white gown, ribboned with rose, framed the sleepy brilliance of ber beauty. Her guest took the long slender hands and pressed his lips to them. "Ah, Cherry! Lovely Cherry!" he murmured. She laughed lightly and drew away. . ' ; , "You are glad to see me?" she Inquired. "Unutterably. - But I want terri bly tc see yon and talk with you a long while. You will let me, Cherry?" he begged. "But of course, honored Geof frey. How persistent you are! You have followed, me from the Orient to Paris, from Paris .to London, and from Lopdon, city of mists, to America!" She laughed again, with a child's delight and led him into the dim, shaded library. . At last they were alone and he Imprisoned the fluttering fingers ence more. Cherry smiled faintly. It would be so ridiculously easy to wrest them from his puny grasp It she wished. But she lay there quietly, her graceful . heed droop- iBg asaiast iaa tapestried Skran her eyes closed. The fringe , of SlOEf STOEY I silken lashes lay inertly on her soft .cheek. As he began to speak his voice was fraught with pleading. Cherry Blossom, dear, I've come to say good-by. Oh. I know I've said that ever so many times, but now i mean it. It isn't fair to Sam Haines. You've been married just a year and a haff now and I've been making love to you since the eve ol tae ceremony. You've resisted me and while it hurt I respect you the more. You owe much to Sam, of course." He paused and breathed deeply. The long eyelashes fluttered like bruised butterflies. Cherry Dressed bis hand. "Yes yes," she murmured, "you cannot know how kind he has been. 1, was. a frail little Invalid, a heathen, a weakling. And he loved me. I had never seen a mission ary beore. White, men yes. But none so kind as he. My family were desperately poor. But we were of ithe the aristocracy. . We- were rroud. He told me of Jesus and! brought a doctor to. heal me and 1 walked." - - j She thrust out a pair of slender, ! firm young feet "Once they were poor, useless things," she mused, "and now you see." ' Geoffrey was silent," his eyes on her race. ' "He loved me. And I worshipped him." Here she rose and took a grace lul jardiniere from the mantel. It was a rare bit of Satsuma,. beauti fully decorated. "Look." she said. He took it Three men were pur suing a fourth with short Japanese sabers. The victim's face was no ticeably gentler and more , beauti ful. There was a clearness, an elfin transparency about him that set fklm apart from the others. His annswere filled with delicate blos soms, dragon flies and fans. He seemed unaware of the startling menace in bis enemies' faces. Mora, he seemed alive) . A smile flickered about the thin, eerie mouth. Geoffrey started.' There was aa uncomfortable feel ing pf familiarity with that smile. Looking sn he was horrified to find the identical expression on his host ess' face. Her lins were h&nnted Dy a gnost of that weird smile. A strange glow suffused her skin that seemed to come from deeo within her. He felt a sensation of tear. Hers was the same face that was painted on the vase. That fact was not to be disputed. Suddenly the figure on the vase became obscured. At the same mo ment Cherry's face resumed its nor mal expression. There was noth ing mysterious or oblique now in her wistful smile. "Shall I tell you about it?" she asked. He nodded, half afraid, half eager. She settled herself daintily on the lounge. "He is as perhaps you have guessed a Japanese fairy. His persecutors are pursuing him with swords. In his arms he bears the Flowers of Charity and Love, the Fans of Gratitude and the Dragon files, that alight On the Rlnaanma nt Love, known aa the Dragonflies of nappmess. Happiness, honored alp fMria m Love. Love, Happiness, Gratitude and Charity are his weapons. He auuws me sworas may not hurt him. His faith is invulnerahu Cherry's earnst tone won him. He began to speak, but she said quickly: "It. is said in "Japan that I come of fairy blood centuries ago. It that Is true I have those weapons. I Bhall be grateful, loving and chaz itable' to my husband. Of these happiness comes. Go, honored Geoffrey. You are not my lover, but my friend." As she spoke, he rose and kissed her band. Again that elfish smile, like the silent laughter of a sprite, crossed her face. Looking down at the vase he saw the fairy's face ticker mirthfully. . Wondering, he left her.'. V.

There is real ly ; a legend connected with the rase, though not being acquainted with the geauln version, she has "Books, the Brain." Swift. Children's Book Week has just ended. For the last six days lead ing booksellers all over the coun try have published lists and sug gestions of what children should read, and the windows of 'our local stores have been filled with dis plays of miscellaneous juvenile lit erature. A love of books and of reading is inborn in the child mind, together with an innate eagerness for knowledge and curiosity as to the "workings" bf things, for it is from books that the acquirement of knnwlerirn and the satisfaction of My lawn , crtc-gi, y is generally obtained, and Mr. Welch , influences derived from the enrsorv perusal of a good or bad book are more far-reaching than we some times realize. And yet how little attention is paid to what children read "out of school bonrs," . and how carelessly the average well meaning adult chooses a book for childish amusement, as likely as not presenting An attractive 10-year-old boy with any one of the numerous Elsie books. The aver age child is indiscriminating, as far as reading is concerned, de vouring a thrilling tale of Alger's "Sink or Swim" as eagerly as he would the story of Gulliver's Trav els, or Stevenson's Treasure Is land, or vice versa, and it is up to the parent or teacher to see that the youngster gets the right kind of interesting reading, for no child likes the goody-goody book with moral plainly superimposed.

El - mm Home emj1 r ELIZABETH THOMPJON Dear Mrs. Thompson: I have been keeping company with a gen tleman for 10 years. We think a great deal of each other. Wo are both over thirty years old. I do everything in my power to make him happy, and never tiro ot doing favors for him and never consider myself first I am told by my fam ily I am not at all selfish-. I have- opportunities to go with other gentlemen, but refrain from doing so, as I treat him In all ways as I want hun to treat me. Ana, considering that he is a man, I will say he does very nicely most of tbe time, but there is one fault he has that hurts me very deeply. Where he is employed there are several girls sad he has a car. After closing hours he will very often take one of the girls home and after doing so several times he will tell me about it Then later on ha will starts with a new one. I feeUthat he should not do that It is only natural I would be jeal ous. When I hear those tales I feel that I cannot refrain from watch ing him and when I catch him in the act tell him how mean I con eider him and have nothing more to do with him. Since knowing this I am almost tempted to go with a men who has a very fine car and is quite anxious to take me oat Yea can see by his actions ne will canse me to do things that may sever our love for each other, I am very strong In my likes and dislikes and being old enough have good sense.
