Our judg ment may help you. (?.1920, by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) Feeling buoyant with' all the confi dence and assurance due to a young man in his first long trousers, Theed Laurence, Jr., stood before a poster calmly surveying the"nnnouncement of the sophomore high school dance. ' Although he had a perfectly good looking pair of feet, and took lessons from an excellerft master, Theed was in (lie awkward squad when it came to dancing in public. It was very nat ural. therefore, that, he should suffer himself to lose a bit of his confident bearing when lie saw that Anita Wil kins. tiie new girl in town, had ap proached him so quickly that they were greeting each other directly in front of the poster. She stopped and looked at the fate ful announcement. "Oh ! It will be on Friday evening!" she exclaimed. "I'd love to go, but I don't know any of the boys here," she added wistfully: Immediately the boy defended the lone girl. "I'll take you," he said. It was now Friday evening, and Anita and Theed were approaching the school. The grounds and rooms were ablaze with light. Theed was frigtit ened and miserable; lie had an idea that the evening would he disagree able. Anita was chatting gaily, all unconscious of his anxiety ; hut when they had reached the hall and she left him to tstfce olT her wraps, he breathed more freely. The school's military band was play ing an accompaniment to gay laugh ter and the rhythm of dancing feet ? the dance was -fin. Theed) groaned Inwardly as he thought of the last time lie had come to a school dance. By his clumsy dancing he had sent one couple spin ning over a settee. He was brought back from his hor rible reminiscences by the reappear ance of Anita, who sweetly said that he could have her first dance. "Miss Wilkins," he began, hoarsely. "I really don't ? er ? er ? think ? I real ly don't think I'm feeling well, and if you will please ? er ? excuse me " Anita feared he was ill, and offered to sit out the dance with him, but as he would not hear of it. she reluc tantly allowed herself 4o be led away by Fred Marston. Theed lied to the cement walks on the grounds. Why was it that he could dance without a break when he was. alone and yet not be able to when he reached a hall? He tried it out on the wulk. He danced smoothly and easily. He became encouraged. He woitld try It on the floor with the other dancers, that very night. How ever, on second thought lie decided that if he. should make a break he would not want to humiliajte Anita, and therefore he asked another girl for the next dance. His trial dance work ed ! He could dance in public! And with such a good dancer as Anita he was sure that his dancing would be even better. He was just about to ask Anita for the next dance when someqne on the platform announced that two prizes would be awarded to the best dancing couple of the next dance number. The prize forthe young lady was a white silk bag with pink piping, and a mem bership card to the scltools exclusive Billiken club. The prize for the young ? gentleman was a membership card to the Billiken fraternity and a frater nity pin. Theed hadn't counted on this, and he was again about to flee when he saw Anita looking longingly at the lovely, pink-trimmed favor. He now noticed that the pink just match ed the ribbon on her dress. She turn ed and looked at him in the same w*st ful way as on the day he had asked her to the dance. His ebbing courage remounted", and he crossed over to her. "You'll have your pretty bag," he said, with smiling assurance. He would show people that he could dance. The flash and pep of -the mili tary band suited his mood, obstinate and resolute, and that of Anita, who was determined to win the white silk bag with the pink piping. They dart ed nimbly in and out among the. throng of dancers. On and on went the dance; on and on whirled the competitors. ' Almost abruptly "the dance came to an end. There was a general turning of heads toward the band platform as the judges stepped into the hall to an nounce their verdict. "The prizes for the best dancing of the evening are awarded to Miss Wil kins and Master Laurence." After receiving the prizes they were greeted by great applause, and >the prize \vinners were made to perform a dancing skit by the admiring crowd, which was promptly encored and en coiod. # They were walking slowly toward her street. "You dance wonderfully!" she exclaimed. Theed. was watching the stars and fingering his fraternity pin. Would she? He wondered if she would. He lreld up the fraternity pin, mutely seek ing her eyes as' they were passing un der a corner light. "Will you wear it for me?" he said hesitatingly. She bowed her head in silent con- - sent, and suffused with a sudden joy, ( he pinned it. his hands trembling, on her white dress. He was a trifle dazed as he left her at her gate by. the brilliance of his" sucoess. He paused Tor oUJ-1 breatldess moment under an elm tree near the i sidewalk ; then be took a long breath and turned, a champion dancer, ex ultingly home. ... ' I GO TO EXTREMES Health Faddists Apt to Become a Nuisance. Hard to Deny That There Are Many Like the Unfortunate Jiggins, Whd Literally ''Dumb-Bell" Them selves to Death. The following editorial from the Gary Times is printed by fhe Journal of the American Medical Association as a lesson to health faddists: There is a groat deal of truth in the satirical story of Jiggins, who had the health habit. Jiggins lived 20 years ago, and health was a. disease with him. The Dallas News says that Jig gins took a cold plunge every morning. Lie said it opened the pores. After it he took a hot sponge. He said It dosed the pores. He got so that he could open and shut his pores at will. Jiggins used to stand and breathe at an open window for half an hour !??fore dressing. He said it expanded his lungs. He might, of course, have had it done in a shoe shop with a hoot stretcher; but, after all it cost him nothing this way. -And what is half an hour? . After he had got his vest on, Jig gins used to hitch himself up like n dog in harness and do shadow ex ercises. He did -them forward, back ward and hindslde up. He could have got a Job as a dog anywhere. He 'spent all his time at this kind of thing. In his spare time at the office he used to lie on his stomach on the floor and see if he could lift himself up with his knuckles. If he could, then he tried some other way until he found . one that he couldn't do. Then he would spend the rest of his lunch hour on his stom ach perfectly happy. In the evenings, in his room, he used to lift* iron bars, cannon balls, heavy dumb-bells and haul himself up to the ceiling with his teeth. He liked It. He spent half the night slinging him self around his room. He said it made Ills brain clear. When- he got "his brain perfectly clear lie went to bed and slept. As soon as he awoke he began clearing it again. Jiggins is dead. He was, of course, a pioneer; but the fact that he dumb belled himself 'to death at an early age does not prevent a whole genera tion of young men from following in his path. They are ridden by the health mania. They make themselves a nuisance. They get _ up at impossible hours. They go out in silly, little suits* and run marathon lieafs before breakfast. They chase around barefoot to get the dew on their feet. They hunt for . ozone. They hoi her about pepsin. They won't eat mfit because it has too iniicli nitrogen. They won't eat fruit because it hasn't got any. They prefer albumin and starch to huckle berry pie and doughnuts. They won't drink water out of a tap. They won't eat sardines out of a tin. They won't use oysters out of a pail. They won't drink milk out of a glass. They are afraid. Yes, sir, afraid. Cowards! And after all their fuss they pres ently Incur some simple, old-fashioned illness and die like anybody else. Color Test Supreme. The Florida supreme court recently affirmed the decision of n lower court that the color test lepds the ncid test in citrus fruit in determining their marketable condition. A large grower undertook to ship grapefruit . that showed an average on the trees of more than one-half colored. Indicat ing ripeness, under the law. An in spector made an acid test and seized the shipment as immature fruit. The grower appealed to the courts. The state authorities had held that the color test was secondary and that the fruit could not be^sldpped unless it stood the acid test. The supreme court holds that ripeness is sufficient test for shipment, but if the ripening is delayed, as it sometimes is, until after the fruit is fit for consumption, (lie grower may prove by the acid test that he may market the fruit. Linking tKfc Amerjcas. For the first time North and South America are to be linked together by regular, wireless communication. De spite the progress in wireless elec tricity the region of the equator has continued to set up a barrier against the invisible messages. * The most powerful currents could not penetrate the mysterious resistance known as "static." Now, at last, this problem has been solved. Great high power stations in- the United States can now communicate with similar stations in Brazil. At a touch of the key at New York or Washington the invisible waves will overleap every barrier and be read an instant later on the south ern continent.. The wireless will knit closer_thc two westef^r continents.? Boys' Life. Germs and Microbes. _ tJerms and microbes are terms .which are applied to certain organisms too small to be seen by. the unaided eye. Most of those which produce disease jitt* known as bacteria. These are one celled plants. They* are not insects or even animals, being nn/ch lower in the scale of life and mucli^ simpler in structure than insects. Man always has rnaJIe* use of- certain germs^ with out, however, knowing just what he . was using, for instance, yeast used in baking and other fermentation proc esses. * ? j BABIES HELP PAY FOR WAR Even Talcum Powder Has Been Levied Upon to Meet Expenditures Due to Slaughter The postbellum H. C. L. has hit the babies. In the Home Sector William G. Shep herd says: "About $3,000,000 will go into Uncle Sara's coffers from the pock ets and purses of soda water drink ers in 1920. Folks who like bowling or billiards or pool will give about a million and a half to Uncl^Sam. Peo* pie who play cards will glv? him two ii nd a quarter millions. Automobiles and motorcycles will bring him in 50 rents a head from the whole. 106,000, - 000 of ns. We'll give him about $55, 1X10,000 for going to theaters and mov ies. "Every one of the 100,000,000 of us, Indeed, will give Uevle Sam 1111 aver age of two cents a day. directly, for pleasure -and conveniences, with baby paying tribute for his talcum powder, mother and sister paying tribute for their perfumes, father paying tribute for his cigarettes and athletic club dues, all the kids paying trtbute for the movies and their trips to the cor ner soda fountain. "The war did it all. too. We're pay ing just ten times more to Uncle Sum in Internal revenue this year than we did In 1914, We paid so little then ? one-tenth of 7J/? cents a day ? and we paid it so indirectly that few of 11s realized that there really was such a person in the world as Uncle Sam. At last the old party has found us. Since then a lot of us have fought and died for him. And if he's worth dying for he's worth support ing." MAY DEVELOP GUM MARKET Opening of Mesopotamia to Civiliza tion Likely to Add Largely to the World's Supply, As law and order come into the wild and unsettled mountains of Mesopo tamia. especially when new roads and the eventual railway connect the iftirthern Kurdish country around Mo sul with the rest of the- world, many a now useless tree and shrub will doubtless be put to service us a con tributor of gum. . The gums of Meso potamia have many commercial uses, and the unsystematic tapping and trading that now brings the product on pack animals to Suleimanaya, where merchants buy It from the Kurds and sell it again to other mer chants in Bagdad, is u mere sugges tion of the industry that may be de veloped by enterprising promoters who may have observed the extent of this natural resource in Mesopotamia, and looked further afield than Aleppo and Bagdad for fharkets. Now that Brit ish ^occupation lias opened the laud to western ideas. It would not be sur prising if the gum industry grew to be a source of considerable national wealth, and an Important factor in creating a new Mesopotamia. Lengthening Life of Silk Stocking. "No economies are small," says a French proverb, and the professional stocking mender's job Is evfdence of thrift as understood hy the Parislenne. "Here," ?aid one of the craft, "are"30 pairs of silk stockings which have been through my hands more times than I can count, and look at them." Tlfley were patched and darned till there was little of the original left, but as Ellse remarked, "with boots they stiil make an effect!" Before the war madame paid three half-pehce per pair to her mender and provided the thread; now she gives fourpence'or fivepence and expects miracles of en durance from J.he fragile web. Where the mender formerly spent ten min utes she now. must devote an hour to some of these stockings, and it Is dif ficult to see how slie^ gets a living. But madame's motto is. "Throw noth ing away," and she lives up'to It. - Plastic Dressing for Wounds. Industrial plants are now using the Amhrine treatment for burns, scalds, and all surface wounds which proved very successful for casualties incurred In th^p world war. The dressing is a compound of wax and resins, and is solid when cold. It is heatfed to about 150 degrees Fah renheit and applied by means of a spe iai atomizer, or 4t can be generally daubed on with a soft brush. A plas tic dressing. Impervious to air, Is thus formed, which does not adhere to the wound and which promotes the healing process without appreciable contrac tion. Disfigurement and scars are pre vented to a greater extent than was possible under the old methods. Bold Chinese Bandits. ? Bands of kidnapers recently, .have caused much alarm In Terjchowfu, Shantung, China. Operating in. groups of from 30 to 50 _ they have carried away and held for ransom wealthy Cbf nese for whom they have obtained as much as $50,000 in some cases. Ten citizens were kidnaped In October. Promises to pay ransoms have been ex acted by torture. Troops have tried to capture the bandits, but have failed. It is believed the kidnapers came from Dalny, crossing the Gulf of Pechili In boats in which they es caped with their captives. Spanish Licorice Industry. The "manufacture of licorice extract and paste is an important Spanfsh in dustry. This is a comparatively new industry, .as formerly the root w re exported unmanufactured. Over 0. 000,000 pounds of the root were ex ported in 3918 and more than 000,000 pounds of extract and paste. ROMANCE BECKONS TO ALL According to Theatrical Star, Men and Women Never Really Forego Their Childhood Dreams. "We are all more or less only grown nfj . boys or girls," Mr. DItrlchsteIn said In an interview given recently to a New York Evening Sun reporter. "The less grown up we are the more we enjoy life and the thrill of living. It is this joy of human experience which makes the stage possible and which particularly aids "the actor of melodrama. "The life of the roving buccaneer of adventure or the suave cavalier with his romantic conquests is dented to most of us." Mr. Ditrichstciii said al most sadly, "but there lives in us all the desire to do the rash, Impossible and delightful things of our great he roes of fletion. The wisened, colorless little man you see on the commuters' train, who toils by day over his prosaic books and figures, possibly may be a d'Artagnan or a Don Quixote within the infinite realm of his nocturnal imagination. The shop girl during the daylight hours may be the rein carnation of Cleopatra *or Helen of Troy over a library l)ook during the evening. She may practice before her mirror the walk and manner of a Eu ropean queen and. in extreme cases, where the imagination buoys hope to the highest point, even go so far as to think of herself as p queen of the movies. "It is not too much to say," Mr. Dit richstein said, with a sly twinkle. of his buccaneering eye, "that even the famous 'tired business man' is occa sionally subject to hope that there is something in life more romantic and exciting than the cutting of coupons and worry over the high cost of ste nographers and other business com modities." Disciples of "the good old days" when men and wine ran free; when dashing cavaliers plunged through the guardian moat to the castle walls and carried the lady of their hearts' de sire away through the moonlit lanes of, the whispering forests and matched their lances against the bravest men of the enemy forces simply for the joy oi a gallant fight or to avenge a lady's honor ? of such, according to the mel odramatic star, is the kingdom of the \ orchestra and the gallery wherever melodrama is" produced. Electrification of Seeds. There appears to be much interest in the electrification of seeds and the ap plication of electricity to growing plants. A recent account of work along these lines tells of a new met boil of aiding plant growth. The seeds, ten or twenty sack.', are placed in tanks provided with iron electrodes at both ends; the electrolyte is a solution of 'sodium nitrate or some other fertiliz er. Particularly with cereals ? wheat, barley and oats ? the yields of both grain and straw are said to be in creased. Some five hundred farmers have taken up the treatment of the seeds, which is followed by a very careful drying in a kiln. The treat ment is applied about a month or Jwo before sowing. ?

CHAS. DIGGS. Barber, Monterey, Va. ** Agent lor Woodward's Cleaning; ; Dyeing and Pressing Establinhraefrt^ v*' SPORES SCATTERED BY WIND Remarkable Reproduction of Species of Fungus Is One of the Wonders of Nature. We often wonder at (lie amazingly sudden upspringing of mushrooms mid toadstools. Today the green of the lawn fs unbroken. In the night n gen tle rain falls, and we wake to see a crowded group of yellowish-white "Inkyeaps" spreading their parasol* In the very shadow of our doorstep. Mr. Burton 0. Longyear In the Outer's: Book describes the marvelous repro ductive powers of these fragile and. sliort-lived plants. Each species of fungus produces, upon <?r wiiliin some part of its fruit body countless numbers of minute re productive bodies called spores. So -small and light are they that they float in the air as an invisible dust. Many of them fall to the ground and are, washed into the soil by rains. Others are wafted away on every breeze, car ried possibly for days, to be brought down at length by rain many leagues from their ; starting point. In this way they are carried to the ends of rhe earth.- dusted into every crack and cranny, lodged 011 every exposed sur face of wood or soil and caught on every dew-moistened leaf or twig. The amazing number of spores pro duced bv a single fungus can be real ized only by knowing their relative size. Thus in the case of most puff balls at least three thousand of the globular spores, when laid side by side, would be required to form a line one inch long. A compact mass of such spores, the size of a parlor-match head, would contain the Incomprehen sible number of thirty millions of these microscopic bodies, enough to cover an acre of ground with four spores for every square Inch of surface. PIPE MAKERS USING BIRCH Wood Has Been Found to Be Eminent ly Suitable, After Treatment by . a Special Process. American birch since the war bas ac quired a .South American name. Nowa day.? It Is fashioned Into pipes and then called something besides birch. The only evident reason for the change seems to be the fact that the process that converts soft birch into :i hard pipe was originated in n Latin American country, according to the New York Evening Sun. Birch wood owes its new name and its present prominence in the pipe in dustry to (be war, which cut off the supply of briar and sent the prices of the stocks in America sky high. Substitutes have been sought for the expensive Imported briar. The ces sation of importations with the war ? they haven't been resumed yet ? inten sifies the search for an American wood that would provide a suitable substi tute. ? Many native hardwoods were tried without success. Most of them were either ton hard to be worked into pipes or too heavy to rest comfortably ln? tween a smoker's Hps. Then some one hit on the expedient of trying a soft wood and employing a process that would give It the required hardness for use in pipe manufacturing. Birch was found the most suitable for the pur pose. Oil Wells Detected Electrically. New uses for electricity :ire con stantly appearing. One of the latest is the detection of crude oil In the earth instead gf boring for, it. It is stated tjint crude petroleum has he.en located electrically in the shallow oilfield near Corsicana, Texas, and that further tests are being made around Burkburnett. A series of bat teries is used for the test, the negative terminal being connected to a wire which is dropped into dry waterhole, valley or indentation, and the positive terminal being connected to a "land wire, ' which is used to make contact at various points on the surface of the field investigated. It -is stated that the higher electrical' resistance of oil compared with other constituents of the earth, permits it to be located by the reduced deflection of a sensitive instrument in the circuit. "Easter Riding" in Bohemia. In various parts of Bohemia, now the principal state of the new Czecho slovak republic, a curious old custom prevails, that of* "Easter riding." On each Easter day, at four o'clock in the morning, the riders assemble, dressed In black and carrying crosses, flags and other emblems. From Schuiiwald they proceed on a three-hours' ride to Kulni, where they attend service. The priest, after a sermon wherein be re fers to the horse as a symbol of pow er, bestows his benediction on the ani mals and their riders. Tins done, the ridel's visit the -neighboring castles, where they receive hospitality, subse quently making their way homeward, escorted by a band and a large crowd. The origin of this curious custom is loft in the mists of antiquity. China's Tea Industry. Indications are that the Chinese gov ernment intends to make every efi'ort to encourage the tea industry in that country and to increase China's tea trade with foreign countries, and the Peking cabinet recently decided to es tablish a tea bureau under the min's try. of agriculture and commerce.
