We will he lucky if we get enough to eat before the snow comes. I never knew euch a season; no nuts at all and a cold, hard w inter it will be for us, I know.” Granny Squirrel, who had lived a long time and learned many things, heard Mrs. Young Squirrel’s grum- hlihgs. “Why don’t you know the good Side instead of the bad?” she said. “There you have been making the bad as im p o rtant as you could and never said a word for good. Isn’t it “Bosh!” Said M ra Young Squirrel. as easy to think good things as bad ones, my dear?” “B o sh!” said Mrs. Young Squirrel *‘W h at good will thinking do? I know there are few nuts to be found and we are going hungry this winter. You see if we don’t.” “I shall not think of any such thing as lack of supply,” said Granny Squir­ rel. “W hat I shall keep in my mind is th a t it is right for me to have enough and that the right always prevails, and if 1 can keep knowing the good pan hard enough and in the right way I shall not suffer this winter. I'am sure of that.” *Tou can’t get w h a t you cannot see,” said Mrs. Young Squirrel, “and I do not see any nuts. So how you are to get them I don’t understand.*' “You w ant to think lack, my dear,” said Granny. “If you didn’t yon would be thinking supply and you know that thinking right brings things right in the end. Of course thinlhng about a big supply of nuts won’t make things right.” “W hat else do we need, I should like you to tell me?” said Mrs. Young Squirrel. “Good thoughts, a supply of kind thoughts toward yoUr neighbor, for one thing,” replied Granny. “When Mrs. Red Squirrel comes chattering in your tree and tries to make you angry so you will chase her, just think of her as a nice, kind, good creature and put out of your thoughts the quarrelsome neighbor you have always seen in her.” “Granny Squirrel is crazy,” Mrs. Young Squirrel told her neighbor, Mrs. Gray. “She sits there ^talking about having all she needs when the ground is about bare of nuts, and seeing somebody who isn’t anywhere around. Poor old granny, she will starve this winter.” But Granny didn’t starve. Instead, She had a good supply of nuts, and one day, when Mrs. Young, Squirrel, who was looking rather thin and far from well fed, happened to call, Gran­ ny Squirrel treated her to nut cakes and tea. “W here did you get nuts for cake this time in the w inter?” asked Mrs. Young Squirrel. “You could not have stored any, because there were none. It was a dreadful season for us poor creatures.” “No, my dear, I did not store any nuts,” answered Granny, “but I have had plenty, for some kind person put nuts and bits of fat and other dainties every day on a shelf near my home and I have all I can use and to spare. “You see, it is as I told you. If we will know the good is here we shall never know the lack of it. Have an­ other nut cake and some more tea, my dear.” Mrs. Young Squirrel nibbled her cakes and wondered if, after all. Gran­ ny was as crazy as she had thought her to be, for she looked not only plump, but happy as well. (© , 1924, McClure N ewspaper Syndicate.) WhatsinaName?” By MILDRED MARSHALL » e ; its history; tneknins; w h ence it w e s derived; siy- nilieence; your lucky day. lucky jaw « l EMMA T^EW feminine names have a simpler origin than Emma. It is one of the many names derived from Teutonic forefathers. Tradition assigns Its origin to the lispings of a child since Amme was nurse in Germany and ame is translated housekeeper in Spain. Amme was quickly transposed to Emma, probably from a latent sense of euphony. The Karling daughters of Teutonic fam e were first to use the name. Later a daughter of Charlemagne was so called. A romantic story surrounds her to the effect that she is said to have carried her lover, Bginhard the Chi'onider, on her back over the snow th a t his footprints might hot betray his visits. Emma was popular in France, where It was the name of the sister of Hugh Capet,, who married Richard the Fear- les.s of Normandy. H e r grandmother was fir.st the wife of Ethelred the Un­ ready, then of Knut. It was in this way that Emma became much in vogue In Saxony. There were also Emmes among the daughters of the Norman D ra de Ealadon, who came over with William the Conqueror. Prior, in his beautiful ballad of the “Nut Browne INIaid,” which was sup- po.«ed to be the history Of the shep­ herd, Lord Clifford, called his poem “Henry and Emma,” which fact brought Emma romantic fame and spread the pop\ilarity of her name. Emmeline, curiously enough, bears no relationsbip to Emma, but comes rather from Amaline, the progenitor of Amy. The bloodstone is Emma’s talismanic gern. It has medicinal qualities and was much u.sed by the ancient’s to stop hemorrhages. It is said to pre­ serve the faculties and the bodily health of its wearer, bring considera­ tion and respect, and guard her from deception, especially of lovers.

T F YOU should find a pierced coin, or receive one in change, be sure and keep it; it will bring you good luck. This is a very common superstition everywhere and its causes are obvi­ ous. A pierced coin suggests an amu­ let—^has evidently been worn as one, the hole on it having been made toi pass a string or ribbon through that it might be suspended about the neck. And an amulet protests against the evil eye, witches, evil spirits and ma­ lign influences generally as eveiVbody knows. Therefore keep the pierced coin and you keep the advantages of its protective virtues. Or the coin may have been pierced aud vvOWl by some one simply as a “lucky piece.” A lucky piece is a little different from an amulet ; an amulet wards off bad luck, a lucky piece brings good luck. The pierced coin, then, is evidently an amulet or a lucky piece and both are good things to have about one. In the power of the lucky piece we see the operation of that prim itive idea, contagious magic. The lucky piece has possessed its beneficent qualities inherently or has acquired them by contagion and therefore from it we can “catch” the contagion of good luck. The pierced coin superstition has its counterparts among all savage peoples today and its ancestry reaches back to prim itive tipies. (© by McClure N e \^ p a p e r Syndicate.)

(® by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) are mine Durango, Colo.—^The old Greek saying “out of bad wood good smoke sometimes comes” was applied here when a “cpmmunity tabernacle” and its pansona^e were built out of tim­ bers and m aterials taken from a oni.’e notcJrious gambling resort and dance hall and from an erstwhile brewery. The tabernacle, built by the Free Methodist church, was recently dedi­ cated. its altar rail was made of part of the bar against which the lumberjacks, miners, cowpunchers, Mexicans and gamblers of forty years ago used to lean. The bar's foot-rail was converted into the hand-rail of the steps leading into the church. A Bible now rests on the polished wal­ nut where the liquor of the early days* was placed, for the top of the bar has become the pulpit. The altar was con­ structed from other parts of the bar. The church rests on a foundation of stone, heavy timbers and iron beams taken from both the dance hall and the brewery. The window sills and ledges were made from the heavy oak bottoms of huge beer vats. The building occupies the site of the former brewery. It is situated at the foot of a bluff and is overlooked by the parsonage of the presiding elder of the district. The parsonage once was the office bf the brewery and has been made into a modern cottage. It is planned to terrace the bluff and to build winding stairs from the el­ der’s home to the house of worship, using as a hand-rail a coil formerly utilized in making beer. The two steps that lead to the en­ trance of the tabernacle were formed of timbers taken from the dance hall. One of the boards carries a bullet fired from a “.45,” evidence of one of the many shooting scrapes that en­ livened the old resort. The heavy timbers comprising the supporting col­ um n s’and the roof beams were taken from the dance halls. The church seats 700. “I think,” said Rev. F. F. Stewart, the presiding elder who conceived the idea, “th a t it was in, the nature of an act of Providence that we were able to convert theqe places of disrepute into a house of worship.” AUStra’Ua.’S production o£ gold, sincfe its discovery more than 7S years ago has been estimated M $ 3 , 131 , 000 , 000 .

The fabric glove has gained a new prestige for the autumn, says a cor­ respondent in the Christian Science Monitor. It appears now in fancy as well as plain modes and shows a beauty of texture and style that Is worthy of almost any street or after­ noon costume. Never before, say those who make a particular study of glove seasons, has there been such an expert imita- of French suede. Even the prices of suede glove’s have been imitated, you may say upon first inquiry. But the new fabric gloves, while more ex­ pensive than ever, have an enviable advantage—they can be waslied in soap and water. Furthermore, as a second examination of them will show, the material and workmanship com­ bine in giving a far more refined effect than past fabric creations have sug­ gested. They can be bought in the prevail­ ing glove colors of the season—gray and beige, with the many intermediary shades. It is the slightly decorative jg stomach ache.

For the business woman, there are new qualitie.s and varieties of a glove that was created for time-saving pur­ poses. It has three names—the slip- seases. of this talk had a , case appendix in a six weeks old infant. A noted New York surgeon says th a t after the fist year of life appendici­ tis is the most frequent of all the acute emergencies of abdom inal di- retain. Besides, vom iting is a very frequent symptom in appendicitis. “The lesson or warning which can­ not be emphasized too strongly is ne­ ver to give a cathartic to a child with on, the pull-on and the Rinrritz glove, the last name coming from the French town where the fabric Is manufac­ tured. Of gauntlet length, without snaps or.straps, this glove has a flare sufficientiy wide to take in a medium­ sized coat cuff and a wrist sufficiently narrow to wrinkle not too loosely. The slip-on glove is available in French kid, suede, buckskin, doeskin and chamois, besides an inexpensive model In fabric. While the novelty gloves are called for quite as frequently as ever, the novelties, on the whole, are of a less conspicuous nature. A few elaborate styles in better gloves for those who prefer them can be bought at some of the stores, and some of these, pro­ vided the costume and occasion war­ rant. are very pleasing. Embroidered, hand-painted and stenciled cuff de­ signs are found in this group. One pair of old-ivory-colored French kid, with turn-back cuffs of navy-hlue moire silk, with tiny flowers hand- painted in old rose, will probably ap­ peal to those who like styles that are ornate and yet tasteful. “A very young child cannot loca­ lize his stom ach ache.
