Alice Hegan Rice found humor,
romance and some of the most ap-
pealing qualities of the human
heart in a terribly squalid section
of the suburbs in Louisville, Ky.,
known as [the Cabbuge Patch;
Grace Miller White has discovered
the same qualities ami some Ex-
tremely winsome heroines in a set-
tlement of squatter; Kate Douglas
Wiggin; Zona Gal? and other tal-
ented writers have found equally
appealing subjects of fascinating
novels in submerged sections of
humanity and very unpromising
environments, but we don’t be-
lieve that any of them have found
exactly the sort of material or
struck exactly the same human
note as Florence Bingham Livings-
ton has in her very powerful story,
entitled “The Custard Cup”-
It is the author’s first book, by
the way, yet it has placed her in-
stantaneously in the front; rank of
feminine novelists in America.
The people dealt with in this story
are poor, so poor that they live in
a barn in the rear of a group of
tenement houses in San Francisco;
yet they get more out of li fe than
any of their neighbors and more
than does the average occupant of
a mansion. It is a tale filled with
humor and heart interest and so
fascinating in characters and plot
Next Wednesday, April 4th, has
been decided upon as clean up day
at the I. 0. O. F. cemetery. The
committee in charge announces
that the work will begin about 9
o’clock A. M. and will be contin-
ued all day until the grounds are
put in the best possible condition.;
Everyone owning lots In the cem-
etery is requested to join and do
their share in this work; to be on
hand early in Ihe morning and
come prepared to stay all day, if
necessary. This means to bring
needed tools and your dinner.
Everybody interested will please
take notice and be at the cemetery
on time next Wednesday morning.
The most complete line of new

Tuesday night a number of the

fin home to help celebrate the fif-
teenth anniversary of Roy Ruffin’s
