From "Poet and Peasant" It swung Into "Wabash Blues," thus delighting and satisfying the gay party. Meanwhile David Ralston was has- toning to the ball by airplane from a distant city. Lle was frantically pilot- ing Ills plane through the snowstorm to tile home of Nancy Graham whom he had promised to accompany to the ball. He wasn't making much head- way and despaired of arriving on tlme, By much skillful maneuvering he finally saw the lights of Thornton gleaming through the snow. Heading "Oh, Won't YOU Come In?"

Julia Rensley, better known its little Jewel, was sitting wlth her grandpar- ents In the dull living room of tile farm shack by the roadside. Julia had been thinking of the gr(at ball In town nnd wishing she were there, but she knew there was nnt a ghost of a chance of even getting a glimpse of Its grandeur. "Alh" thought David, "I'll stop at this farmhouse and telephone NucY.

"Oh, how delightful," exclaimed Julia, "An alrphmel Where is It? May I see It?" David, rather embarrassed by Jul- Ia's sweetness, stammered a reply to her questions and then asked permis- sion to use the telephone. "Is Nancy at horneT' "No, she left for the bail an hour ago." David hung up and somehow was greatly relieved. Just then Grandma entered to see what it was all about She soon learned that David was a son of her old friend, Dick Ralston, and he was most web eome. "This is my granddaughter, Julia Rensley, better known as little Jewel," said Grandma, smtllng. "How do you do, i'll Jule," said David, gazing Into the depths of her deep blue eyes. "I am so glad to know that you are not a strangerso glad," replied little Jewel. "New, Grandma, do let us attend the ball I was to accompany Nancy Gra- ham and came all the way from Cole. vl}le to do so, and then she stole off without me.

"Collie UlStalrs t0 my room, dear, and I'll+dress you up for the ball," said Grandma. "I am sure Dave will be dellgllted when he sees you."

Rite Norris wondered who had ever started the fool resolution business anyway.

"Thunks, but thls happy New Year stuff Is the bunk, isn't It? Can you ( m ,7 lt,'lll! ! t!'!ib!,['! Imagine it, I've tramped this town over this afternoon trying to find some one for whom I could do my first good deed of the year---a resolution, you know. Could I find s thing to do I could notl" "That's funny, I always thought there were so ninny such deeds Just waiting to be done that there weren't enough folks in the world to do them." "You're wrong, Jeff; that's not tile case; I know," size affirmed, but still lie looked doubtful. "You come back some evening when I'm not busy and I'll take time to name a few such deeds waiting to be done, Miss Norris," he told her, a smile on his lips, but a frown across his brow. "That's a bargain," she called out and started back to her little apart* ment in the Carol Flats. But Just before she reached the big dours of the Flats, she heard a light tapping on the window next to the street. Little Janet Merchant waved and then tllrew a kiss to her. "Come In, Miss Rlta; my daddy had to go to work a couple hours earlier than usual today, so I was lipping you would stop in to see me." IAttle Janet, a motherless little tot, had to stay alone while her fa- tiler went out to work, Three hours later, Just as Rlta finished 'melting some butter to put over the huge pan of corn she had Just popped, she told Janet all about the resolu- tions they had made. "And to think I chased all over this town trying to find some one to do something for and here righ! before my very eyes, I found all kinds of good deeds Just hankering to be done." "And, Miss Rite, I think New Year's resolutions are the grandest things ever, I do. Don't you?" Janet asked. happy tears shining in her eyes.

"Ring out false pride in place of blood, The civic slander and the spite; Ring in the love el truth and right, Ring in the common love of good. "Ring out old shapes of ]oul disease; Ring oztt the narrmving lust of gold; Ring out the thousand wars ot old, Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Western New.spar Ucloa, PERFORATED DESIGN FOR QUILT MAKERS ]By GRANDMOTHER CLARK Quilt makers realize the beauty of a finished quilt depends upon the patches used, the beauty in the patch. work design, and, most Important, the quilting. If the quilting design is not accurately reproduced on the material It Is huposslble to quilt neatly and clearly. Many quilts are never finished, because the worker has no pattern or means to transfer all rho qulltlng lines accurately. There are several ways of transfer- ring quilting patterns to cloth, but the most approved and successful method Is stamping tim design through a perforated pattern, with stamping powder. This is the sim- plest and most economical way, and produces results that make quilting interesting. Each stamping is the same, and perfect. These patterns are already perforated on bond pa- per, and good for many stampings. Each stitch is Indicated on the lines of the design, and the stamping can can be brushed off when quilting ls finished, leaving the work neat and clean. Grandmother Clark's package No. 83A contains perforated patterns of the designs shown, also stamping powder and full directions how to nee them. Sizes of l)utterns are as follows : A1 Feather Circle, 12 tneh; A2 Feather Border. 3 Inch; A3 Motif, 3 inch; B4 Feather Cir- cle, 9 tnch; B5 Feather Corner, 7 Inch; B6 Feather Square, 4 lnclL If you want your quilting to look right send 15 cents to our quilt de- partment and receh-e all of these, Lot 33A six perforated patterns by mail postpaid.

Idea of Electrifying Farms Gains Momentum Ata recent meeting of the Agri- cultural Engineers society l Massa- chusetts the matter of electrifying farms was discussed hy Prof. E. A. White. Dealing first with the New England states he polnted out that New Hampshire was in the lead for the whole country wlth electrlc serv- Ice on tvo-thlrds of the farms, New Jersey and Rhode sland follow close behind. There has been no great rush to adopt thls form of power. though there has been steady prPg- ress. Over a ten-year period the rate ofgrowth has varied from year to year but even In the worst of the depression there was an extension of hydro systems in rural districts. While the picture of an electrified farm is htghly attractive It must he admttted that there are difficulties In Its application. Distribution of cur- rent over thinly populated dlstrlcts Involves expense In transmission. Electrlc power is most useful to the dalryman and to the nmrket gar- dener, or in other words, to intensive farming operations. Smaller farms and density of population enable lower rates to be charged as com- pared wlt the distrlcts where larger farms and grain growing are the rule. Engineers are placing at the disposal of farmers new and more efficient appliances for ntillzlng elec- trlc power which will in time relieve much of the burden from the shoul- ders of the worker. 'Montreal Her- ltld, Tires o "Seclusion" At one of the busiest subwaY sta- tions In downtown New York the change booth during daylight llours is In charge of a woman. She Is mlddle-aged, but ls animated by the splrlt of inextinguishable youth. Of the many thousands who daily pass and repass her booth, hundreds know her by name, and for all she has a cheery word. Very evidently slm likes her Job. She lives alone In a large cottage in a sparsely settled part of West- chester and commutes daily. "But Isn't it very lonely for you there?" 'Of course, It Is, thank heaven," she answered. "After seeing all these thousands of people daily I crave loneliness. But after some 12 hours of it I'm eager to be on the Job and me human beings again,"--New Jer- sey Bulletin.

Now at last these matters are to be better ordered, The minister of ma- rine has Issued Instructions to all naval and merchant marine authori- ties that in t.he future ships hearing feminine names shall be paid the compliment of the feminine artlele. The trouble started in the dim past before Caesar sought native trlremes to take hls legions across the British channel, for It was d cided then that shlps were to be con sldered masculine. The custom pre. vailed through revulutlon and conn. tar.revolution, so that today the French give them all the masculine article--le bateau, le vasseau, le paquebot, for example. As time went on, some slllps were named for fa- mous women, a few even, for the owner's wife. Then the trouble be- gan.
