Watch your child and at the first sign of constipation, give him a little California Fig Syrup. Children love its rich, fruity taste and it quickly drives away those distressing ail ments, such as headaches, bad breath, coated tongue, biliousness, feverish ness, fretfulness, etc. It gives them a hearty appetite, regulates their stom ach and bowels and gives tone and strength-to these organs so they con tinue to act normally, of their own accord. For over fifty years, lead ing physicians have prescribed it for half-sick, bilious, constipated chil dren. More than 4 million bottles used a year shows how mothers de pend on it Mrs. C. G. Wilcox, 3855% Wolff St., Denver, Colorado, says: “My son, Jackie, is a prize winner for health, now, but we had a lot of trouble with him before we found his trouble was constipation and began giving him California Fig Syrup. It fixed him up quick, gave him a good appetite, made him sleep fine and he’s been gaining in weight right along since the first few days, taking it.” To avoid inferior imitations of California Fig Syrup, always look for the word “California” on the carton. Windmills Fight Frost Don Quixote fought windmills, but up in San Joaquin valley, Calif., they are using windmills to fight frost. An electrically driven propeller of the type used in large airplanes is mounted on top of a steel derrick. It starts enough breeze to keep the frost off of twenty acres of citrus.

Midseason Fiock of Sheer Wool By CIIERIE NICHOLAS IT’S TIME for a new frock, one I * which seems to say a not too sud den good-by to winter, yet in its happy bright coloring and light ; someness carries a hint of approach ing spring. Rather a paradoxical ; call of the mode we’ll agree, but one which finds a timely and logi cal answer in the fascinating new sheer woolens which are so proudly Haunting their high, likewise pastel, colorings and their novel weaves throughout advancing fabric dis plays. The sheerness of the new woolens is perfectly amazing. They take one [ by surprise for often they have a • sturdy look, while In reality they ' are as airy-fairy as the most fastid ious may desire. The tomato-red ; worsted and durene tweed which fashions the chic dress which the seated figure here pictured is wear ing Is that sort This attractive ■ material which exploits the now-so smart honeycomb patterning is so thin and sheer as to be almost transparent when the light shines through It The fact that the worst ed Is Interwoven with durene, that Is to say, mercerized threads, gives a sparkle and glint to this tweed which is one of Its charms. Added to the beauty of the fabric of which this dress is made are two interesting style features which are especially news-worthy. One Is the epaulet sleeve, which Is so often mentioned this season. In this in stance the epaulet effect is achieved via tiny capelets of self-material. The other Important message of the mode is the skirt of many gores | which is manipulated so as to give la snug hipline with a gentle flare i at the hem. The dress to the left is made of a very charming novelty wool which is flecked and invisibly striped with artificial silk. This material pre sents innumerable smart possibili ties for town and campus wear, for it is sheer, soft and supple, and tailors exceptionally well. Notice the embroidered lingerie touches on GO TO BUTTERFLIES FOR SPRING COLORS If you would like to know what some of the colors are that will find themselves in conspicuous seats of approval for the spring style shows, Jtake your little net and chase a few butterflies. If it is too cold now then go to the nearest museum, or library, and study the gorgeous col ored plates and specimens. They carry many future fashion secrets on thei" delicate wings, not alone for colors, but for the grace fulness of their slender bodies, and the exquisite combinations of shades and nuiances that they seem to have captured while hovering over I myriads of brilliant flowers. Watch the blues carefully and note the delicacy of change in the tones that you find. These same elusive shades will be found in your spring frocks. There will be hints of periwinkle, of dusty sapphires and of amethysts behind blue mists. Blue in Varied Tones Leading Spring Color Blue in a variety of tones is a leading spring color. Beige, warm reds, grays and browns also are popular. Black is being used for j late winter. Stripes will lead for early spring, but the old-fashioned checks, bright plaids and flowered and designed prints are being shown. Beige for Spring Champagne beige is already fore cast as one of the smartest colors for spring wear. Some of the new est blouses and frocks now being shown in fashion houses are of a soft creamy beige. this frock. It is characteristic ot most of the new spring daytime drvft?«?6 that they have accents either ot alencon lace, or Irish cro chet, or some equally as effective note or lingerie. It should also he taken into account that patent leather shoes and a patent leather belt is worn with this youthful street frock. The outlook for pat ent leather accessories is very promising. One of the most popu lar items for spring Is the wide soft belt made of supple patent leather in several of the season’s new bright colors. While in the picture the dress shown in the center panel above presents a very simple appearance. It is really a very stunning model. Its chic and its charms are due to a great extent to t’ e material of which it is made, which is a very sheer wool crepe in the fashionable rust shade. By the way. fashion’s latest wrinkle is thin woolens of this genre in lovely pastel shade, greige (between a gray and a beige) and a soft green being among colors heralded for spring. As to the styling of this dress Its , chief claim to distinction is its I bodice front which fastens in a | criss-cross manner. These crossed effects have been generally adopted by designers and are being featured j throughout the spring mode. Brown | kid shoes and a brown kid belt make an effective color blend with the I rust tone of the fabric which sash I ions the dress. Among the new woolen weaves shown for spring and summer, for the latest types are that sheer and delicate they can be comfortably worn during the warm weather, arc | many open-work patterns worked with drop-stitch in stripes, cross bars and plaids. Swagger wool crepes, which are entirely new, have an overworking of interlaced threads in indefinite scrolls and other patternings, the en tire effect being in monotone. (©. 1932.

THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER I WHO WAS | I WHO? | X By Louise ill. Comstock ill SANTA CLAUS JUST as many children speaking many tongues have gradually converted the name of Saint Nicho las into the familiar American Santa Claus, so his many admirers in many different nations have created the conventional Christmas saint out of a figure which was in real life very different. Nicholas was bishop of Myria, in Lycia, Asia Minor, during the Fourth century of the Christian era, the youngest bishop in the history of the church. Uis father was a ! wealthy merchant, and Nicholas, by inheriting his fortune, was enabled to build up for himself a reputa tion for generosity and benevdlence toward the poor that lias lasted down the centuries. It is a matter of legend that Nicholas, because he j disliked to lie thanked for tns\:ifts once dropped a purse of gold down the chimney of the hut, where lived a poor old man and his littie grand daughter. Instead of landing on | the hearth, however, the purse fell : into one of the little girl’s stockings, j hung up before the hearth to dry. : Thus commenced the custom of hanging up Christinas stockings for Santa Claus to fill. How the grave saint of the early Christian church became the Jolly, fat Santa Claus of today is another story. His figure and smile wreathed face he borrowed probably from some jolly pagan good-fairy such as were worshiped before the | Christian era. His gay red costume is the contribution of Russia, where he is a patron saint. His reindeer j are the gift of admirers in Lapland. * * * KING ARTHUR WHETHER King Arthur was a historical figure or not, and scholars are recently renewing re search into this fascinating subject, j there stands today in Cornwall, Eng land. ruins of an ancient fortress, crowning the promontory Tintagei j Head, which are generally known as i “King Arthur’s Castle.” As the birthplace of the glorious King of the Round Table, this spot has re cently been transferred to the pos ; session of the English government to be used as a national park. If King Arthur was a historical figure he was a comparatively insig nificant Cornish chieftain of the early period Just succeeding the withdrawal of the Romans. Such a chieftain is celebrated by the Sixth century historian Glidas, in connec tion with an account of the Battle of Mount Badon in 516. the decisive struggle which checked temporarily j the advance of the Saxons against the Celts. Nennius, writing In the Eighth century, calls him by name and attributes to him victory in twelve battles. The date of his death in the battle of Camlan In 537 Is added In the Tenth century Cam brlan Annals. By the Twelfth cen tury the Monks Geoffrey of Mon mouth and William of Malmesbury were able to produce accounts of his j heroism already embellished with much of the legend made familiar by Mallory and Tennyson. Actually, only the f< undations of the chapel of “King Arthur’s Cas tle” date from anything like ds early as the Sixth century. The rest of the ruins have been estab lished as Thirteenth century Nor man. * * • MAGGIE THE hero of that familiar song, “When You and I were Young Maggie,” was its author, George W. j Johnson; its heroine was Maggie Harris, the girl he found and won for his bride during a gold pros pecting trip in the wilderness of un explored forest, Indian ambuscades and occasional white pioneer settle ments which in 1830 comprised East Tennessee. Many years later, old and gray, and alone, Johnson returned to the spot on the Hiawassee river that was the scene of his courtship, re viving in his mind’s eye every dear detail of the settlement as he had first seen it, the green grove where stood the Harris cabin and where he had first seen Maggie, the old mill where they had walked on a summer evening. Noting sadly every change, he wrote down Ills poem to take home to his wife in the East: ; The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie, Where first the daisies sprung: The creaking old mill is still, Maggie, Since you and I were young. And now a e are aged and gray, i Maggie, The trials of life are done, Let us sing of the days that are j gone, Maggie, When you and I were young, (©. 1932.

Hindu Pilgrims Easily Wrought Up to Frenzy The monotony of village life, re lieved only by occasional market days, has for centuries been bright ened by pilgrimage to sacred places. Here the sins of the pious Hindu are washed away by bathing under priest ly guidance in the sacred pool. Hith er come traders from all parts to sell their wares, elephants, cattle, horses, fine Dacca muslins and raa i chine-made cotton goods, books, house hold utensils, toys and all the little articles in daily use among the peo ple. Hither come the maharaja in | his glory of elephants and retinue, processions of holy men, naked fa kirs, marvels and freaks, calves with five legs, two-headed children, and giants and puppet shows and all the appurtenances of the medie val fair in Europe. Formerly, the pilgrims came in hundreds, on foot or riding, by ox cart, elephant or boat; now they come in thousands by rail and motor car. Recently, there were 3,000,(X)0 at the religious fair at Allahabad. For months beforehand, great prep arations are made for the comfort of these crowds, their lodging, food, water supply and sanitation. Happy, orderly crowds they are in their clashing harmonies of color, grate ful for kindness and attention, en joying the fun of the fair no less than the religious merit of the out ing. But let some religious dissen sion arise and all is changed in a i moment to blows and shouting, vile insults and a tiger-like ferocity that will hurl people alive into flames and dance with joy at the victim’s agony. —From “India Insistent," by Sir Ilarcourt Butler.

THE I | GASOLINE RACKETEER | IS ROBBING YOU I As Well As Your State i An enormous new racket has grown up in the past few years — the bootlegging of gasoline to escape payment of the state tax. Now an alarming amount of gasoline is being sold without pay ■ ment of lawful tax. Most motorists who buy bootleg gasoline buy it unknowingly. But know it or not, they are being robbed by the gasoline racke- ga teers every time they buy from them! The gasoline tax you pay belongs to you, and you should get it back from your state in the form of good roads. When you buy bootleg gasoline, you pay all or a part of the tax, too —but the racketeer pockets the money. You never get it back! And re member—if your state received all the money paid as a gasoline tax, it could well afford to lower the gasoline tax! B Knowing this, you naturally don’t want to buy any bootleg gaso line. To be sure the money you pay as tax goes to your state, buy only gasolines sold under dependable, familiar brand names, backed up by reliable companies who make sure the state gets the tax. By sticking to familiar, reliable brands, you’ll help banish racketeers. CONOCO Gasoline is a branded gasoline you can buy with safety at the sign of the CONOCO Red Triangle.

But merely because London i 3 so vast, endless and varied, only the outstanding sights of that fascinat ing city can be described in these short articles. There are, for instance, the White hall Horse Guards. The ceremony of mounting the guard, which takes place every morning in front of this historic old place, never fails to at tract a crowd. The moment the new mounted soldiers in their brightly colored uniforms relieve their fellows and get into position they are like men of stone, and their horses seem to be also of stone —neither ever True Story The young lady was a bit angry. “I told you I objected to your kiss ing me last night,” she said. “Well,” replied the young man. “I didn’t kiss you last night.
