CHANGE FOR THREE
Bride's Bouquet Now Divided
Into Three or Four Parti
to Be Thrown.
MORE SHAKE W HONOES
By MELLIFFICIA September S.
For the maid unwedded, but willing,
fashion hai devised a new wrinkle in
the pretty, ancient custom of throw
ing the bridal bouquet. In many a
bridal company there have been long
ing eyes cast on the fateful bouquet
as the bride dropped it over the ban
ister into the out-stretched arms of a
favored one. . ' ,
Now; there neetl not be-half so
many disappointed looks in the upr
turned faces, for the new bridal bou
quet provides a favorable omen for
three young wornn instead of one.
It is made in four parts, that is. four
corsage bouquets are combined into
one large shower bouquet, which the
departing bride unfastens and flings
daintily into the hands of four expect
ant friends. Or .she may retain one
for her going-away corsage, and share
three with her chums.
Miss Fannie Livingston, who ts to
be married tomorrow evening to Mr.

Smile ; .;-,
- By ADA PATTERSON, i
Last evening . I needed postage
stamps and post cards, and the branch
mail station 'in the neighborhood
being closed, went into a drug store
to buy them. The tired cashier be
hind the railing that is so like a bird
cage, sold me all the aids to corre
spondence left in the atamp box.
Just then a sweet thread of a voice
coming from somewhere about the
ground at our feet, said: "My mamma
wants two postal cards, please.
"Haven't any. Just sold the last
ones. The cashier was tirco. a long.
weary business day takes the sweet
ness out of a woman's voice. It had
put the steel trap quality into hers. A
crowded, waiting desk called me
and 1 was hurrying to it as a mother
to a crying child. But we both no
ticed something. ' ' 1
It nntied the tired muscles in the
cashier's face. She looked ten years
younger and far prettier. It held me
to the spot as though I had grown
there. The call of the desk was for
That something was the child s
smile. She , was a little- creature.
"Seven, and a half," She said with evi
dent pride in the exjra six months,
that when she is older, she will be
glad to torget. ne uvea jusi arouna
the corner. Mamma wanted the post
cards so that she might write the
laundress to call a day earlier for the
clothes, and the woman who cleaned
house to change her day to i uesaay.
Mamma would be disappointed.
While she was telling the little house
hold story, she looked up first at the
cashier, then at me. Her eyes were
wide and trusting. They were brown.
Brown eyes that are well trained can
do a great deal wih a glance. They
are linguists. Thev sneak the every
day language of commonplace things.
but they speak also the language ot
sentiment. The brown eyes that I
have known best ask for love and
always receive it.
The child smiled on. The cashier's
face looked less and less tired. I had
thought her face a tittle hard. I saw
now that it was tender. . ,
I watched the child a smile. Ana
lyzed, as a chemist analyzes a liquid
in his laboratory. It was made up
of one oart trust, one part sunniness
of nature, one part interest in all per
sons and things that crossed its line
of vision. With those eyes upon me
and that conquering smile curving the
child's lips, I opened the package and!
handed her two ot tne postal caras.
What if I needed them to forward
addresses? What did much weightier
things matter if that child would only
keep on- smiling? , ';
She jaccepted tlje poajcards, insisted
upon paying the two pennies for
them, and thanked me. We watched
the little figure trot around the cor-

ner. the' little' hand gripping tightly

The cashier, and I looked at each
other and understood. The same
thought was in our minds. It was
that of Epictetus, the Greek slave
philosopher, when he wrote:
"What could Parseus, or a single
,nnn l What does the color pur
ple do for a garment? It is beautiful
ana gives to everyone wno ccs n u
message of beauty."
That is what a smile does. A real
smile that is no mere cracking of the
face, no mere showing of the teeth by
-a perceptible effort, is a message that
te ! of the beauty of life, it tens
of life's gentleness, its illuminations
its exaltations, its joys.
When that child goes to Bchool her
smile will win her teacher and fel
low pupils.1 When she grows into
the tweet, short estate of maiden
hood it will win for her a man's
heart. If she concludes' to walk
life's way with him the smile will be
his beacon. If' children ' come to
them her smile will heal their childish
hurts. When the brown hair, with its
red ribbon bow, has turned silver and
is worn in a stately crown on her
head, her smile will reassure those
who fear, encourage those who art
riia-anirited. When she has gone into
the shadows, that .finally enc6mpass
us all, the smile will be remembered.
It will have smoothed the difficulties
from her way and that of others.
Who knows how 'many others? All,
indeed, who saw it. It waa the con
quering smile.',, , ' ! . . "
Cantaloupe Fruit Salad
Not so many years ago we were
contented to eat our melons as nature
gave them to us. Twentieth century
cooks, however, are distinctively in
ventive, and they have evolved a
number of delectable made dishes
with this melon.
The most delicious of fruit salads is
one of cantaloupes combined with
fruit.- These should always be chosen
by their odor. If this is spicy, they
are sure to be ripe; but, lacking per
fume, they are not good. Select large
Rocky Ford melons are beat ripe
melons of rich flavor, and cut them
in halves; acoop- out the contents
carefully, remove the seed and pith,
and cut the fruit into small pieces.
Meanwhile stand the melon ' itself on
ice. Cut small, rich-flavored peaches
with chopped preserved ginger. Mar
inade or soak the fruit for an hour or
so -in a little lemon juice and sugar;
then place it back in the melon with
some whipped .cream, again stand on

dttd ginger. J. hen serve.

Why the Earthls Speed Does Not Cool It Off
By GARRETT P. SERVISS.
"If tha aarth stood till, would thn aun

the following fact: A man standing- still
In a hot sun booomsa verr warm, and pr
hapa will bs sunstruck; whllo If he jump
Into a faat automobile and rids swiftly

aun much leaa.rv' B. S. O., Philadelphia.
The amount of heat received upon
the earth from the sun fs not sensi
bly affected by the movement of the
earth around the sun. The sun's rays
are sent out in all directions around
it, and if you imagine a shell sur
rounding the sun at the (Mtance of
the earth, every part of that shell
would receive an equal quantity of
solar heat per unit of area. Conse
quently the earth, no matter t
what point it may be situated, gets
continually the same amount of heat,
except so far as the amount may be
varied by changes in the earth's dis
tance from the sun or by fluctuations
in the intensity of the solar radia
tion. The forward movement of the
earth through a field of space which
is everywhere equally filled with the
solar rays does not affect the num
ber or intensity of rays that encoun
ter it. No account is here taken of
the motion, of the arth with that
6f the rays, Which we need not con
sider. !".. . :-, - '-. I
- Now, take a man stainding in the
broiling sunsj)ine and threatened
with sunstroke, but, who, on jump
ing into a speeding automobile enjoys
instantly a delightful lowering of the
temperature. , He- is not escaping
from any of the' smiting aolar rays,
for thev fall uoon him as numerous
as before and possess just as great
intensity, but the motion ot the auto
mobile has introduced an important
new "element wind. Strictly speak
ing, wind means air, in swift motion,
but a virtual wind, just as good for
many purposes as the real article,
may be produced by the motion of
a body through still air. '
ine enect oi tne wmu in lowering
the temoerature is due to the rapid
carrying off of heat ftorn the body.
A heated Dody surrounoea Dy sim
air soon heats the air about it, and
thus, in a manner, chokes up the exit
for the : escape of its own thermal
radiation. - v f
The heated air acts like a blanket
through which the short waves of the
aolar radiation easily penetrate, while
the longer waves ot opscure neat
from the body are entrapped. Thus
the body becomes hotter through
thermal accumulation. But when
fresh, cool air is continually borught
into contact with the heated body,
the escape of the heat is no longer
obstructed as it was before, and the
temperature ceases to i rise, although
the influx of heat from the sun maj
be as great as before. . ' '
But the earth, rushing through
space; which, as far as any. sensible
resistance is concerned, may be re
garded as empty, experiences neither
a real nor a virtual wind. In order.
to do that it would have to move
through some resisting medium, like
the air. But the ether of space offers
no resistance to the atmosphere, that
is a part of the earth and is carried
along with it. - . -
Many persons seem to find great
difficulty in understanding the rela
tions of the air to" the solid earth, on
whose surface it rests like a trans
parent spherical shell. .The air is re
tained upon the earth by the force
of the earth's attraction, and this
fact is in no manner altered by the
fluidity of the air, which permits its
particles to move freely, among one
another as the particles of a solid
cannot do. . '
The air decreases in density the
higher you go above the earth, and
at a height of a 100 miles it becomes
so rare that noartifical vacuum can
be compared to it, and yeteven at
that height, the ether allows it to
whirl with the whirling earth -without
resistance. A very slight resistance
Uy the ether would ' result in the
sweeping ott or tnei atmospnere, our
no effect of that kind can be detected.
If the ether did offer resistance
to the earth speeding through it, as
the air resists an 'automobile, the
effect would not be to cool the earth,
but to set it afire. It would be a wind
of flame. The Speed of. the earth in
its revolution around the sun, is, on
the average, about I8W miles per sec
.A body moving at that speed
through a resisting atmosphere would
be heated up to thousands of degrees.
If the earth should plunge into a
cosmicat bubble of air in space we
should feel, during the instant that
we could feel at all, that we had been
shot into a furnace. The oceans

Who Win Out :
By JANE M'LEAN.
Emily was only 22 and she had been
j married two years. Of course, she was
i happy; she had married to oe nappy,
i and John! was very' good to her.
There was Buddy, too, and he was the
most adorable bahy a mother ever
had. He almost made Emily forget
the fact that she couldn't do as many
things as she did before she was mar
ried, that she was confined closely to
the house, that, there was something
for her busy hands to be doing every
single minute of theda y.
John was a clerk in a broker's
office and he brought home $22 to
Emily every Saturday. It wasn't so
very much, but it was enough to keep
a tiny flat running and Emily was
young and capable and in love, and
whenvthings went, smoothly nothiag
else mattered."" It was only when she
was tired, or Buddy was cross or
things didn't go right, that Emily
wished for her old position in the of
fice, with her independence and bet-
! ter clothes.
One afternoon, when the world was
lovely, Emily took Buddy out in the
carriage and walked him up and down
in the sunshine. She felt quite hap
py and contented until suddenly, she
spied one of tlte girls who had worked
with her in her old position coming
toward her' -
, "Why, Etta," she said, smiling, "it's
great to see you. How are you these
days?. And how is everything?"
"Everything's fine. Don't you wish
you were back? I'll bet you have
your hands full, with a baby and ev
erything."" - ,
-Etta was. wearing a smart up-to-date
linen suit and a little white hat.
She looked very cool and quite the
independent working woman. Emily
out.lwould resemble a meteor shoot
ing through the sky with a train of
hre Behind it. , .
An automobile going at that speed
r-ould be burned up, for it is not
the size or mass of the moving bods
that determines the intensitv nf the

So the man who on a hot dav wishes

and' candied cherries.
Plum Butter. .
- The flavor of plum butter 'ii "so
strong that only a small quantity
ia consumed during a meal; for this
reason housewives ordinarily make, it
in small quantities. Select well ripen
ed plums, wash them well, and re
move the seeds with a sharp pointed
knife. Place the pulp and skins in a
kettle; add nearly enough water to
cover the mass and boil it rapidly un
til all parts are very tender. Run
the plums through a colander to re
move the skins and make the pulp
smooth; then i sweeten the' pulp to
suit the Aaste. i Continue the cooking
slowly until the mass has the con
sistency of cider apple butter, i either
in a crock in..the oven or by boiling
with , constant stirring to prevent
washed summer dress and her plain -
little hat. But she smiled resolutely
and replied: -
"It's, great to be married. Vou
haven't tried itTand you don't know."
"I know you're tied down," Etta re
turned lightly. "Nothing like that for
me. You look tired, too. You don't
want to lose your looks."
"It's been so hot," Emily defended.
"Why don't you get your husband
to let you come back to the office for .
a while? You could earn enough mon
ey to buy some clothes, and it would
do you lots of good. I'm sure Mr.
Blanchard would let you have your
old position. He often speaks about
you. ' ,,...,,.
Emily's face lighted up. If John .
would only let her do it! How splen- .
did it would be to have a "position '
again, to feet that she was a factor in
the world and earned her own money.
"Well, I'll see," she promised.. "I'd
love it, Etta. Come up and see me,
won't you?" AridEtta nodded bright
ly and walked away. :, (''
The amall apartment looked very ,
small and it was hot after she had
carried Buddy upstairs. Emily tied'
an apron about her slim waist and
prepared to get supper. When John
came home Buddy was crowing hap
pily in his high chair and a pleasant
odor was permeating the apartment.
John's weary face lighted happily
and he lifted Emily's face to his rev-
erently. . . 1
"Life wouldn't be worth' living if
you weren't here when I came home
nights," he said softly. "You women '
who fill the jobs of homemakers are
the ones who have the best positions."
Emily's -eyes filled with hot,- :
ashamed tears. She hadn't thought of
her life as a -definite job, but, of
course, John was right. How glad she
was that she hadn't told him about
Etta, i Etta didn't know everything:
she Wasn't married to John, with
a Buddy to look after.

When you lift the telephone receiver from the hook, a small

While the hook is up the light hums. If you press it down the
light goes out. Move the hook up and down SLOWLY and the
light flashes. '
