BAD COLD QUICKLY BROKEN UP.
Mrs. Martha Wilcox Gowanda N.
Y. writes: "I first used Chamber-
lain's Cough Remedy about eight
years ago. At that time I had a hard
cold and coughed most of the time. It
proved to be Just what I needed. It
broke up the cold in a few days and
the cough entirely disappeared. I

medicine and all who have used H

spring when everyone wants new

designers have leisure to occupy their
time with matters of ornaments for

With the rich and beautiful fabrics

task for the designers to create the
picturesque styles they love so well.

White chinchilla appears with ever-
increasing frequency in midwinter
coats for little girls and smart sport
coats for women. The latter are cut
in simple lines and long like the coat

Many novel touclies in little details
of finishing make them interesting
and they are carefully and beautifully
These points are demonstrated by
the coat illustrated here very clearly.
It has a big convertible collar which
may be buttoned up about the ears
and the revers are faced with moire
plush in black. Very accurate parallel
rows of machine stitching ornament
the coat at tho bottom and adorn the
collar cuff3 and pocket flaps. The

Copper Dish Cloth.
Among tho cleaning agents there
f.rn two recent additions to the list
that are well worth while; one is the
copper wire dish cloth which comes
in three sizes for tho cleaning of pots
and pans and is much more effective
than the chain clcths as it does not
chip or crack the enamel. The ether
is steel weel; this comes in a roll
and a littlo bit pulled off which has
tho feeling cf a tunch of horsehair
and looks not uuliko it will clean
enamelware perfectly simply by rub-
bing it over the surface. It may also
be used for brasses and glassware.
Use with It a ncnalkall soap if any
and always rinse the article and pol-
ish with a dry cloth after it is
arm'8-eye Is noticeably original and
appropriate to the material.
A coat of this kind will pass muster
wherever discriminating eyes will be
met and outing' coats are worn. Com-
fort and style go with it and that
poise which belongs to the wearer
who Is conscious of its fitness.
On Your Living-Room Table.
The genial glow of reading lamps
makes tho living-room table these
cool nights the most cheerful and rest-
ful place in the house. On this occa-
sion the runner for tho table should
havo a largo amount of consideration.
Wliile cushions are important they
aro in the shadow and any Bhubbhiess
or defects in them will be softened.
Devote then your best energies to hav-
ing a supply of table runners that will
do you and your home' credit.
Cross stitch always has abo''t it
when In tho proper colors a sugges-
tion of warmth and comfort that ac
campanies no other kind of embroid-
ery. Perhaps it is because it brings
to mind grandmother's day with its
open fireplace and Its bright oil
lamps that sent out a glow of warmth
to those who crowded about them with
their books imd papers on a winter
! THAT f.'Ail CHARLIE J
By ROBERTA CARSON.
Paula windblown and rainsoaked
burst into the living room where her
mother was reading. "No luck moth-
er! There isn't a maid black white
or indifferent who will budge a foot
in our direction Just because we're a
couple of yards out of town. Mc-
Manus at the employment office says
they're all that way and he can't do
anything about it. I told him to send
out anyone who came along. A man
would do If he could get one. Oh
why did dear old faithful Lizzie have
to get married? And just now of all
times!" She dropped dismally into a
chair. ' "What can we do?"
Mrs. Courtland tapped her book
thoughtfully. "If It were anybody in
the world but tho Remingtons who
were coming it really wouldn't make
bo much difference. But they live so
well and are so precise about every
'And there's a son coming too!"
groaned Paula. "Oh we Just can't
have them. Father might telegraph to
Remington pater that somebody has
died or that we've had a fire or
smallpox or something."
"They are motoring here from Bos-
ton Paula and left the middle of tho
week. We would not know where to
reach them by wire." :
! "Well then we still have two days!"
Paula got up and took off her hat.
"For forty-eight hours I'm going to
clean the house till it shines. What-
ever the Remingtons find it won't be
i Bang! Bang! Bang! went the car-
pet beater wielded by a round whito
arm strengthened and seasoned by
many rounds of golf and tennis.
I Paula was talking to a man. She
had seen him pass slowly along tho
side street as if searching for a house.
"McManus has Bent us a man I do
believe. Stop! Walt a minute! Aro
you looking for Courtland's?"
j "Did Mr. McManus the employment
man send you?"
I "Yes but how"
' "Never mind!' There's no time to
talk. No matter what you can or
can't do now you are better than no-
body and we need you. I'll give you
an old coat of father's till your things
come. Then beat these rugs and
sweep them off. Get the hose in the
laundry and scrub the porches and
walks. Shine the brasses around the
front door and then come up stairs.
I've forty windows for you to clean.
Sound3 like a lot but it's got to be
So Charlie banged rugs scrubbed

ham ground coffee ran errands
changed furniture and 'cut glass. At
the last minute on Friday he helped
iron the curtains after Paula had
shown him how aud then after dinner

them away and cleaned up the
Then he presented himself to Paula
in the library. "Miss I'm sorry but
I've got to leave."
; "What? You can't go now Charlie."
She sat down with shaking kucos.
' "Sorry but I gotta."
' "But why?"
"My family needs me. I gotta go. I
tried to help all I could."
"Oh you did Charlie. You're a Jew-
el. But what will we do when the
company comes in the morning? No
one to do dishes or anything!"
"Mebbe the company can help."
Paula laughed weakly. "Yes may-
be they can but then again mayl
they won't. But of course you don't
understand Charlie. All right it
you've got to go we've got to let you.
I'll get your money from father. Four
dollars is that right?"
' The next morning the Courtlands
watched the clock anxiously fearful
lest their guests should arrive before
the work was done. But things were
in order and mother and daughter in
faultless toilets when an automobile

Mr. and Mrs. Remington were greet-
ed cordially and the Courtlands wait-
ed expectantly for the begoggled son
who was busy with the car outside.
Then he came and something in the
travel-worn suit and shapeless cap
;seemed familiar to Paula. Off came
the goggles and behold Charlie!
The Remingtons enjoyed the situa-
tion so hugely that the astonished
Courtlands joined in the laugh. "We
have heard from our son how the land
lies!" laughed Mrs. Remington "so
we are all prepared to roll up our
sleeves and pitch in and help."
i Later Charlie Remington had a few
words alone with Paula in the library
where he had handed in lijp resigna-
tion the night before.

j" Philosophic King
i Though King Peter has refused to
leave his Serbian soldiers he is not a
military man at heart. Rather is he a
scholar and philosopher as is shown
by his admiration of John Stuart Mill
whose works he has anonymously
translated into Serbian. When In exile
in Paris and Geneva King Peter lived
very modestly renting upper flats at
''30 a year in each place. In tha
agreement with his Geneva landlord
was a stipulation that if he should be
summoned to the Serbian throne his
lease should terminate. London Eve-
Like the mile post New Year's Lay has grown to be a sort of Cardinal
Point from which we measure the distance that we have come and map out
the onward road. The milo-post may lie or It may1 tell the truth but the
pedestrian takes it at face valuo and moves on with tho feellug that some-
how he Is making progress. . .
The advent of New Year's Day is a certain indication that time is pass-
ing but it is not always a positive sign that we aro getting' ahead. The
only sure way to reckon the year's financial gain is by the "Chock System."
By handling all financial transactions through tho bank we have at the
close of the year a positive record of all its business and a safe indica
tion of the road to better prosperity next year.
It behooves us then to start the New Year with a bank account and
to place our account; with a bank that pursues a course of sanity and care
fulness in its business practices and
cers so that our funds may be properly safeguarded and carefully ac-
counted for. ; The Oklahoma Natlonhl Bank cites its record and its reputa-
tion for stability and efficiency and solicits the accounts of all those tie-
siring a connection with a bank
place in the road."
