Knows It to Be a Fact.
Someone —Raymond Hitchcock, I
think—used to sing a little song about
the difference just a few hours makes.
He might have gone a little farther.
What a difference just a few dollars
Rebecca Colt —It is Cole, now,
though it used to be something else
when Old Abe opened his boots, bottles

they—Rebecca and I used to be good
friends. She was a tarnation pretty
girl, Becky was. More than that. She
was a ripping, raving, tearing beauty.
She didn’t have the clothes, then. The
most you could say for them was that
they were clean. The girls in our
town were just finding out that hair
jould be marcelled, waved and'what*
aotted by hired help. Their mothers
aad always washed their own hair and
sat on the back porch until it dried.
Becky had to wash her own and Huff
It around with her hands until it could
oe put up. Entrancingly pretty, Becky
was, at such moments.
I was in love with her, of course.
But my mother snvajjed me whenever
the fact came to her attention. Becky
was pretty, she admit*cd, but that was
ibout all that could be said of her,
and she was handicapped by that
Doots, bottles, and old Iron ancestry.
Becky was sort of in love with me, I
'hink. Just propinquity, probably, but
her eyes used to shine very pretty
when I hove in sight. Well, 1 was
chased away from the paternal hamlet
for one reason and another, and when
( got back the old man had moved to
i better street, and mother rode down
:o market in a glass-inclosed car that
and a sort of family likeness to a
oenrse, and the town newspaper printed
my picture, as the son of the well
mown and popular, etc.
So 1 sort.of looked down on Becky.
When we met we were both embar
rassed. We could not get back to the
frank camaraderie of our youth. That
Infernal boots, bottles and old iron
skeleton rattled Its dry bones In our
sars. ’I walked down Main street with
Becky one day, but 1 was conscious of
my condescension.
I met Becky again yesterday, for the
first time In years. Old Abe has run
that second-hand shoestring of his In
to a large and odorous tannery. He
will always be Old Abe, essentially
Dootsy, bolt ley, and old irony, but nev
ertheless rich. Becky has married a
rising young millionaire. They have
more bottles In their cellar than I
ever saw in a fancy grocery.
Becky condescended to me. Nothing
nasty. But she was conscious of her
social superiority. Ain’t it funny what

World Magazines.
Catlettsburg. Ky.—Typical moun
tain moonshiners of Kentucky are not
always of the gun-tofing and trouble
making kind, It is proven to news cor
respondents by visits into the moun
tain region in this area of the state.
The mountaineer type of moonshiner,
however, is continually on the alert
for deputy sheriffs, prohibition officers
and revenue agents.
After a trip of thirty or forty miles
into the mountains the correspondent
was escorted to a moonshiner’s log
shack, made from the rough timber of
the hillside and carefully arranged on
a foundation of stone.
“Bill” greeted his visitors with a
keen eye. a bit of suspicion, but with
i friendly note in his shout of “wel
come stranger.” Proper inquiries
whether any squirrels inhabited an
adjacent mountain side, where a new
ly beaten path had been noticed,
brought the answer that squirrels
were scarce and none were found in
lie woods.
Mountain Dew Kicks.
When a friendly spirit developed
*ome “mountain dew,” or, in the lan
guage of the cities, “white mule,” was
produced from a small hand-made
upbuard within’ the single room of
the cabin, over which hung a religious
picture and other articles of a reli
gious nature. On the opposite side of
the room over the bed of the moun
taineer was a rifle of heavy caliber, an
automatic pistol and a small-caliber
revolver. The contrast was unique.
A small drink of the “mountain
dew" almost brought slumberland a la
Dempsey. Inquiries as to the age of
the liquor brought the answer, “Thet’s
today’s stuff.”
Hospitality of typical southern qual
ity will be found among the mountain
eer residents if you are a “friend”;
If an enemy—beware, or, as “Bill” ex
plained It. “snakes in the mountain are
killed.” "Bill" makes his farm a pay
able proposition for his wife and chil
dren, who were attending church at
the time of the correspondent’s visit,
by occasionally cutting some timber.

Volcanic Activities Fail to Dis
turb Older Hawaiians.
Remember Ancient Legendary Agree
ment in Which Pele, Goddess of
the Volcano, Promised to
Withhold the Lava.
Hilo, Island of Hawaii, T. H. —Re-
cent volcanic activity in the ancient
pits of Makopuhi, Hanau and Napau,
which have been “dead” since 1840,
drained much of the lava that had
made Halenuiumuu, the vast Inner cra
ter of the Kilauea volcano, so spec*
luculnr, and caused much fear that the
;iva would flow toward the sea and
inundate the little vfflages of Kala
nnn, Pannu and Puua.
The older generation of Hawaiians,
io a ever, entertained no such fear, for
hey remembered an ancient legendary
reemehl that had been made by
!.*, goddess of the volcano, with
limited and weekly trips to the near
est postofflee furnishes him with news
papers from tlie “outside.” These are
read by one member of the family, by
lamp and candle light, to the others
and often last throughout the week.
Tlie moonshiner's home from the
outside has an uninviting appear
ance, but once within the home, while
some Inconveniences are found, the
impression of cleanliness is produced.
The low ceiling forces a man of ordi
nary height to stoop. The board floor
may creak, but it is solid and hign and
dry. In winter cold winds are shut
out by the mud-plaster between the
cracks of logs and by the board and
paper lining of the inner walls. Heat
is furnished by an oil burner and cook
ing is done on a coal range.
Oxen teams haul coal to the home
during the fall months. A yoke of
oxen pulling a load of timber along
the narrow mountain road explains
the manner which enabled the moun
taineer to obtain all the sizable logs
used In constructing his home.
U. S. Explains
SIOB Wardrobe

Frocks, Says Bureau.
Series of Pamphlets Issued by De
partment of Agriculture Calculated
to Reduce High Cost of
Washington.—Uncle Sam, besides
occupying himself with strikes, law
enforcement and international agree
ments, has interested himself in wom
an’s clothes.
How to have a wardrobe for SIOB
that includes dinner and evening
gowns, a smart business dress, frocks
of voile and tissue, gingham for sum
mer wear and a broadcloth coat for
winter winds, is explained in a series
of pamphlets issued by the Department
of Agriculture, as an aid in reducing
the high cost of clothing. One of
these pamphlets declares that the busi
ness girl with a reasonable amount of
zeal and talent, can use part of her
Kama Puna, the Hawaiian pig god, by
which Pele promised her lava would
never flow through Hilo or Puna to
the sea.
Pele and Knna Puna hi nJ an argu
ment and Kama Puna went to'llale
maumau, Pele’s home, to fight it out
The god and goddess fought until Pele
was overcome, and she pleaded for
peace, according to tne legend.
“We shall have peace If you prom
ise* never to allow your lava to flow
through Puna or Hilo to the sea,”
Kama Puaa said. Pele assented, and
she has never broken the promise,
fearing a return of the hated Kama
Puaa, .the legend said.
In 1880, when a lava flow was pro
ceeding toward Hilo and threatened to
destroy the cWy, the Princess Ruth
came from Honolulu here and, standing
near the flow, reminded Pele of her
promise and her danger from Kama
Puaa If she broke the agreement. The
flow stopped immediately, according to
the older Hawaiians.

these pamphlets explains how to make
a dress form by pasting layers of

Frown on Western
Tokyo, Japan.—The question wheth
er western dances are immoral is the
subject of a lively debate in the Jap
anese newspapers at present. In the
last few years xyytern dancing has
grown popular among Japanese wom
en, especially those who have lived
abroad, although it is by no means
general as yet. Tiiey dance very
gracefully in their native costumes and
heelless slippers, but the older and
less modernized Japanese frown on
the growing custom.
On several other occasions Pele has
sent her red-hot rivers in the direction
of Puna and Hilo, but they have never
