You must use a little Ies3 laxative

“A Girl and a Ghost'*
By FLOYD GIBBONS
Famous Headline Huntctr.
AND I'm certaiply glad you didn’t drop dead, Mary Greene
the night a ghost walk’d right into your bedroom.
Pull up your chairs a little closer, bojs anti girls, turn the
light down low and listen to Mary’s true ghost story. It is worth
When Mary moved out to a farm she was In Just the sort of a mood
that ghosts tike. Her school work had made her nervous and sickly, and
hpr parents decided that she needed a rest and fresh air. So they
packed her off In April, 1W25, to a farm owned by friends.
Now Mary always has had a horror of ghost stories and it
was ghost stories that this farmer doted on. Mary says his bed
time stories always told of weird happenings at midnight—of
shrouded figures with clanking chains—of ghostly faces peering
into windows—weird cries, footsteps and unexplained thump
ings on walls.
One night, Mary says, after a particularly hair-raising series of hor
ror stories, she climbed the wooden stairs to her bedroom with more or
less fear and trembling. She was nervous and lay sleeplessly in bed,
watching the moonbeams throw ghostly patterns on the floor. The rest
of ttie family bad gone to sleep long since.
The Night Was a Deathly Quiet One.
The night was one of those Intensely quiet ones, peculiar to the coun
try. Not a breath of air stirred nnd the leaves on the trees In the yard
might have been painted for all the noise they made. Once In the dis
tance, a far off train whistled and the screaming note, as It died down,
made the silence all the more Impressive.
The grandfather clock downstairs began to strike—its slow,
sonorous notes sounded to the girl in bed like the mournful peal
ing of a churchbell—tolling the service for the dead!
.She counted the strokes carefully. At eleven she held her breaih
and hoped it would he the last. And us she listened, hoping against hope
that the hour she dreaded would not strike, a dog howled in the distance.
The Witching Hour Brings Horror to Mary.
She shivered nnd drew the bedclothes over her head. And as she
did—the clock struck TWELVE. Mary says the last notes of midnight

had hardly died before she heard other sounds that brought her heart
Into her mouth In abject terror. Bach sound seemed, to the terror-strick
en girl, more horrible than the othcv.
Stealthy footsteps were coming up the stairs. Chains clanked
dismally and in the silence of that awful night she heard plainly
the thump, thump, thump of a heavy object being dragged
through the silent house.
And the awful sounds were soon upstairs! She heard them coming
toward her room. She sat up stillly In bed and wet her lips—dry from
horror—resolved to cry out. Finally words came but the weak, squeaky
voice sounded strange aud unlike her own.
The Intruder Was “Silent as a Ghost.”
Silence. The noises stopped hut ns the terror-stricken girl listened,
she was sure she could hear something breathing Just outside her door.
The door was closed but unlocked and as she stared, her heart almost
The door moved!
Mary, now beside herself, tried to scream. Site opened
wide her mouth but no sound came from her parched throat.
Stiff and rigid—her bulging eyes staring in terror, she waited for
the worst! And it was not long in coming.
Her door slowly opened—in the bright moonlight, she saw a figure
shrouded In while—and as she sat there, too tense even to faint, the
tiling approached her bed!
Visitor From the Grave Is Too Much for Mary.
She took u deep breath—as persons In great danger often do—and—
horrible as it is to relate—iuto her nostrils came the overpowering odor
of the grave. The sickening stench of death.
Wow! That was the straw that broke the camel's back. And it Is
nil that Mary remembers.
But she knows she must have screamed because a scream
brought the farmer Into her rocro on the run with a shotgun that
hadn't been off the wall since Armistice day.
The minute the farmer sniffed the ghost—1 mean the goat—he knew
what had happened. That pet billy-goat of his had gone and pulled his

Colors of Mexico’s Flag

green, white and red, are symboli
cal of the aspirations of Mexico
at the time it began its life as an
Independent nation. However,
states an authority In the Wash
ington Post, the meaning of the
national coat of arms Is much more
deeply rooted In the history, in the
traditions and in the personality
of the country. The eagle which
perched upon a cactus plant,
strangling a serpent, Is rich in
meaning, rich In symbolism. For
centuries on end It has lived In
the hearts of the Mexlcuns, in the
hearts of the people who descended
from the first settlers of the Val
ley of Mexico; and, besides being
very much alive In cherished tra
ditions, It may have lived In real
ity; It must have lived In reality.
In the beginning of the Four
teenth century the Aztecs, an In
dian tribe, wandered into the rich
valley of Mexico from the north,
and spread throughout that part
of the country. In 1323, having
halted on the shore of the principal
lake, they beheld, perched upon
a cactus plant, a royal eagle of ex
traordlnary size and beauty, with
a serpent In its talons and Its
broad wings opened to the sun.
This was considered an excellent
omen by the priests and the place
was chosen as the site of a great
Aztec city. The foundations of this
future metropolis were laid at once
by sinking plies Into the shallows,
for the low marshes were half bur
led in water. Such were the begin
nings of the Great Tenochltlnn, cap
ital of a mighty empire whose de
gree of civilization astounded the
conquering Spaniards led by Cor
tez Into Mexico.
During colonial times the nopal
and the eagle appeared at various
times as decorative motives in the
coat of arms of the City of Mexico
When Independence was attained
in 1821 the tricolored flag was
adopted, and an eagle perched upor
the nopal (cactus plant) and
strangling a serpent, became the
national coat of arms.
Gay Garden Prints Herald Spring
By CHERIE NICHOLAS
GARDEN prints, ns cool and col
orful as an English country
side, will he worn by smart wom
en for cruise and resort wear and
early spring. Leading designers
are turning out youthful costumes
made of these refreshing prints in
soft crepes with a supple draping
quality that endears them to all.
It is this type of frock that cen
ters the stage at the present, for
it answers the call for a spring
like touch with midseason furs and
Of course, if you are going or
have gone south you will like the
Idea of a jacket ensemble styled
after the manner of the models
here pictured. Note that the silk
to tiie left lias a white background,
which makes it admirable for south
land resort wear. Then, too, these
pure silk prints that pattern color
against white have the “new” look
which says a„ a glance that they
are of this season's vintage. The
tulip motif of the garden silk se
lected by the designer for the fash
ioning of tliis dress is in realistic
colorings that make the thrills of
spring pulse through your entire
system. An insert trim, in form of
a hand-piped leaf motif, enhances
the blouse-bodice. Other signifi
cant style details are the subtle
front flare In the skirt, the me
dium length open sleeve and partic
ularly the tuxedo front of the
jacket ending in a clever pocket
arrangement. The bat is of white
toya with grosgrain band trim.
Tiie beauty of the other two-piece
ensemble pictured Is that the rich
dark tone of Its background tones
it to immediate wear nnder the
winter fur coats of thos* who are
not treking southward this season.
This marguerita print tells you
something interesting — that the
daisy patternings are being featured
in many of the new silks. Then,
too, the message of grosgrain rib
bon bindings is conveyed in the
revers. This use of grosgrain rib
bon to finish edges is pronounced
throughout the field of dress de
sign for spring. A most welcome
gesture it is, too, for it keys a color
scheme to perfection in that the
grosgrain ribbon repeats, thereby
emphasizing a dominant color-tone
of the print. That is, if you want
your costume to look navy or
brown or green or deep red, assum
ing that the print carries the color
itself, trimming touches of match
ing grosgrain ribbon turn the trick
to a nicety. In the instance of the
model pictured an unusual neck
line is achieved with a bow trim
of grosgrain ribbon such as binds
the wide revers of the short jacket.
In a number of cases the new
garden prints employ multicolor ef
fects, with one tone dominating, the
other bright, “springy” refreshing
lines introduced to achieve contrast
and variety. Then, again, two-color
schemes are carried out in a great
many instances such as cerise
florals in solid tone drifting over
navy blue or large white daisies sil
houetted against a dark ground.
Nearly every print dress has its
hip-length jacket of self fabric,
either in loose boxy types or in
models semi-fitting, that have two
or three buttons at the waistline.
As a rule a very simple styling is
given to the skirt. The all-around
pleated skirt is on the program, but
for practical nbout-town wear the
narrow silhouette with u subtle un
obtrusive pleat or shirred device,
just enough to permit freedom of
