Sound Rules Laid Down
for Cultivated Speech
Do you talk In a high, thin voice,
asks an elocutionist in the Weekly
Irish Times? This is very irritating
to the ear. Yon may not be able to
cultivate a deep rich tone but you
can easily lower your voice and avoid
that metallic tinkle. Or do you
speak too slowly or too hurriedly?
Both are worrying. The slow voice
makes listeners Impatient; hurried
speech leaves them gasping. Adopt a
Too softly or too loudly? A too
soft voice can sometimes be as nerve
racking as a too loud one, the former
because it makes people strain to
hear you, and the second because it
In a “dashing-’ manner—introduc
ing all the latest catchwords, slang,
risque expressions, and, perhaps,
even swear words? The two last
named are not dashing, but merely

With your jaws and not your lips?
Some people keep their lips more
or less stiff when speaking, and move
the jaw energetically. But for at
tractive speech the lips should be
the more energetic, shaping, opening
and coming forward well. Too “heav
ily” or too “lightly"? Either can be
annoying to the listener. Practice
the happy mean.
With force, or ineffectively? Do
people listen attentively when yuu

der? Don't be afraid of your own
voice. Make up your mind what you
want to say, then say it clearly, and

hours before the dawn of day.
Through the night lilting tunes
and huuntlng melodies come to Irv

but sleep eludes him.
“Once during a hot summer
night," Mr. Berlin related, "I was

during the production of one of my

"Tired out from the work of re

light sleep, but I was disturbed by
the snoring of the man In the next
room. I paced the lloor. The snor
ing grew louder and weirder. It
was uncanny. At four o’clock It
stopped, and I fell asleep for a few
minutes, only to be awakened again
by the regularity of th« harsh
notes. I slept by fits and starts.

hall. The snoring man’s door was
open. 1 pushed aside the ventilat

bottle caught my eye. I picked It
up and, with one blow, brought It
down with revenge upon the man's
head. It shattered Into hundreds
of pieces. Blood trickled down the
man’s face. This was horrible.
“The next thing I knew a hand
was grasping my arm. 1 could feel
It, but could not see It. Wns It the
dead man’s ghost? I tried hard to

*iqINCE childhood, 1 have been
^ afraid of darkness. It Is a
fear which embodies nothing defi
nite; but complete darkuess terri
fies me. Consequently, I always
leave a dim light burning in the
dressing room which opens from my
bedroom,” snid Joan Crawford.
"A short time ago I had an amaz
ing experience. One night at eleven
o’clock tills lamp flickered fitfully,
almost going out completely and
then burning again. 1 paid ltttle at
tention to It, thinking something
was wrong with the current. When
the same thing happened the next
night, at the same hours, eleven and
twelve, I called In an electrician to
test the wiring at the house, and of
the lamp. Nothing wrong was
“On the third night we stayed
home Just to watch the lights. We
turned them on all over the house,
at eleven o’clock, but that In the
dressing room behaved in the same
peculiar fashion. I did not want to
go out to dance or sing. On the
fourth night, I moved from my room
to one of the guest rooms, but be
cause of my silly fear of the dark,
which I know psychologists would
say I should have overcome in my
childhood, I left a light burning In
the hall outside my room. At
eleven o’clock that light began to
flicker and a few minutes before
twelve, it went out entirely. We
were completely mystified.
“The next morning 1 received a
wire from New Pork telling me that
one of my oldest friends, a woman
who had been very kind to me in
the early days of my career, had
died at midnight the night before.
“The telegram stated that four
nights before my friend had been
taken to the hospital for an emer
gency operation, that she had been
operated on approximately at eleven
o’clock, and that she had hovered
between life and death during the
period when 1 had trouble with my
dressing room lamp.
“My lights went back to their
usual steady behavior after that
fourrh night. 1 can’t explain It.
Perhaps there was something de
fective in the current—perhaps not.’’

THB rnln swept suddenly down
jpon Fifth avenue nnd drove
the diners Indoors. AH but Con
stance who left her young man for
a gap In the boxed hedge and
ducked around the nearest corner.
Like a bedraggled chicken running
for cover, she thought a little hys
terically, and hailed a passing cab.
"And that's that,"-murmured Con
stance settling herself ns comfort
ably ns possible, meaning that she
had written a rnther clever ending
to an evening of adventure. Mean
ing that If a girl tins been so Indis
creet ns to pick up a man, the bet
ter part of valor lies In flight.
Once back In her hotel room, sur
veying her rnln-drenched self In the
mirror, all fear vanished nnd all
sense of shame as well. She was
glad that she had got dust In her
eye and had to have It removed by
the best looking mnn In New York!
It had all happened because she
had si>ent n two weeks’ vacation In
New York alone and this hnd been
her Inst night. And dining all by
yourself In one of those romnntlc
sidewalk cafes between Madison
and Washington squares wasn't so
pleasant If you remembered that
very shortly you must return to Mr.

The best looking young mnn she
hnd ever seen wns dining just two
tables away quite alone.
A bit of Fifth avenue lodged In
her eye. It felt more like the Em
pire State building, although It
came out nt the first dab of Con
stance’s handkerchief. But Con
stance, discarding nil her aunt's
teachings, hnd continued to wipe
her eye and had even moaned a
little for good measure. It had
worked! The tall blond young man
hnd left his sent to offer assistance.
He had said: “You see, I’ve had a
great deal of experience; my mother
was always getting things In her
eye. So If you’ll permit me—”
Constance hnd submitted bravely
to having her ridiculously long
Inshes rolled back on a match and
to having the corner of a very large,
very clean linen handkerchief In
serted In a perfectly clear eye.
"There!" the young mnn had an
nounced at last and gravely showed
her a fleck of dust on his handker
So the blond young mnn moved
over and they lingered over cofTee
and cigarettes. They exchanged
names and other unimportant Infor

at least, wns strictly misleading.
She still preferred to be a New
Yorker down for her shopping. Ills
name wns Bill Maynnrd. He was
the sort you called Bill at once. He
had lived In New York all Ids life.
Bill wns saying: “You’re a real
person, Constance. I mean—real."
Constance had wanted to say that
she wasn’t real, nt least she wasn’t
whnt he thought her. She wanted
to tell him that she was Just a
stenographer from the Middle West
enjoying n vacation in New York.
A few days later she wns walk
ing the streets of her home town.
She knew she ought to be regis
tering nt an employment agency
but nothing seemed to matter now.
She hnd lost her Job and BUI. She
looked nt a store set hack from the
sldewnlk and thought, “What a
grand place for n sldewnlk cafe."
Then said sternly to herself:
“Look here, Constnnce, this won’t
do, you know. You’ve got to be
nonchalant," and took out her com
pact to repair the dnmnges from not
After that she felt better. She
could even face the wind which was
blowing off Main street and then
it happened again! All the dirt
from Main street was In her eye

She turned blindly toward the
nearest door. She'd have to sit
down and find her handkerchief;
she’d have to find some one to help
her. Only there wasn’t any Bill
Some one inside was taking her
elbow, leading her to a seat. A pro
fessional voice murmured, “It’s rath
er dusty, isn’t It? Now If you’ll Just
hold still a moment—”
And then gentle, efilclent fingers
were rolling back her ridiculously
“There, do you want to see what
did the damage?"
Constance opened her eyes. She
saw a glass case filled with eye
glasses above which was a sign ’We
Are Glad to Uemove Dust from
Your Eyes Free of Charge." She
looked up and there was—
“But how, when, where—” It
simply couldn't be true.
“You darling! did you think I’d
let you get away so easily? In all
that nonsense you told me, you hnd
said you were stopping at the Trey

were from Midvale, svell, ftlidvale

“You only need one Job In a fam

“1 hadn't," and Constance smiled,
"thought of that."
Food Supplies Stored

Island or rock, where there Is no

It Is those spots of land which are
at a great distance from the regular
ocean highways where the outlook
for castaways is so desperate. Yet
It Is Just these very islands on to
which a disabled ship may drift.
Typical of these islands are those
called Amsterdam. St. Paul and the
Crozets, lying to the south of the In
dian ocean. In the old dnys sure star
vation was the fate of any man
stranded on St. Paul.
Today he will llnd on the rocky
beach a notice board hearing the In
scription In French, “Food and cloth
ing for castaways.’’ Following the di
rection indicated by a wooden hand,
he comes across a rough stone hut,
in which there is a store of preserved
beef, biscuits, woolen shirts, blank
ets and matches. All these goods are
contained in strong barrels, which
can be easily opened.
As long ago as 1887 a French ves
I sel left beer, biscuits and sardines on
one of the Crozet islands.
Nearly twenty years after, the food
was eaten by the shipwrecked crew
of a Norwegian whaling expedition.

Use liquid treatment
Here is the soundest advice anyone
can give on the subject of laxatives.
It is bas$d on medicr.l opinion. We
want you to have the benefit of this
information no matter what laxative
you may buy:
The secret of real relief from consti
pation is reduced dosage. You can’t
regulate the bowels unless you can
regulate the help you give them. That
is why doctors use a liquid laxative;
the dose can be measured to a drop.
Avoid laxatives that you can’t cut
down in dosage; especially those that
seem to require larger doses than
when you began their use.
Under the doctor’s care, you usual
ly get a liquid laxative. The right
liquid laxative gives the right kind
of help, and tne right amount of
help. Smaller and smaller doses—
until you don’t need any.
The liquid laxative generally used
is Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin. It
contains senna and cascara—natural
laxatives that form no habit.
