I'M THE GUY!
By R. H. ALLIE. ' v "
I'M THE" GUY who is always
asking the time of day, when he has
a watch of his own.
Why shouldn't I?
'I want to know what hour t is.
Your watch is handy.
Just because I have a watcli and
it's running makes no difference.
It's probably down under two or
three layers of clothes and J don't
care to go through all the bother of
getting it out. ,-.
. Besides, that's why you've g6t a
watch to tell you the time and, for
you to- tellrother "folks the time.
And it's handier, maybe, -than mine
is. .'v--'"' - ,. : ' -
, Anyway, you ought ,to be glad to
do a fellow a favor so, small as that,
even though your .hands may be oc
cupied and there's i Uttle trouble "at
tached: S; -:
If you don't l'ke it, that's up to
you. I want to know the time and
you can ell me. If. you.' object, say
so; tell me the time or forget it.
That's how I fcej about it. ' .

Perhaps it is your cousin, or your

corner of your, own room? .
Scr.aps of. heaK-y linen make at
tractive guests towels. These may
measure fourteen inches wide, by
twenty inches long.; Draw threads
and hemstitch the ends if you know
how. If, not, hem the ends neatly
or finish with an edging of narrow,
heavy lace. ' The old-fashioned .tat
ting, so tashionaoie now, is a Deau
tiful finish , for guest towels. You
can buv initials' of a heavy washable
material which looks something like
paper. Baste these to the towel and
embroider over them. Use a coarse
mercerized cotton, not a linen

floss. Tale blue, ofd . blue' or -rose
arjs good colors. Also get smaller
initials to use on wash cloths to
match the towels.
These wash cloths may be made
of the unworn parts of old bath
towels. Cut into rather large
squares, and finish the edges by
button-holingwith white or olored
mercerized floss 'These wash well
and look just as satisfactory as
neav ones, t
! A scented pad may be made for
the special drawer in your bureaV
where your friend is to put her
things. This should have -an inter
lining of wadding, thickly sprinkled
with violet and orris senet powder.
Make the coverirtg in exact size to
fit the bottom of - the drawer, of
China silk Or silkaline in' a soft
coloring or white Tack it to the
wadding in places on tuft it with
silk floss that matches-the covering.
Nothing is so useful for your
guest as her, cornervm your clothes
press with plenty of hangers to keep
both waists and. skirts in good con-i "But then they client their own
dition. So, why not make some
special hangers for her? Cover the
ordinary wooden ones, first with
cotton wadding, and then with a
length of flowered or plain ribbon,
wound over the cotton and then
tacked in place. At each end of the
hanger sew on a large safety pin,
the pin-part down. These pins will
hold skirts in perfect shape and
will Vrove most useful...

Hunting Eye Meets a Smuggler. '
, Leaving the lighthouse keeper on
watch at his post, Hunting; Eye
climbed down the hundreds ot .steps
and started to walk back to the coast
guard station, where he was to spend
the night. It was already getting
dark, when he henrd a low whistle
.some distance behind him. Stooping
down and hiding he saw a man come
out from the sand dunes with a,
ntern. This he waved in circlets,
and, soon after, a boat pulled on
shore. A couple of men leaped out
and began carrying .some small
boxes and ,kegs. .
'They seemed so nervous that
Hunting Eye 'Mt something was
wrong, and he Hurried to the coast
guard station and told his friends.
"Smugglers, eh!" said the .captain.
"We'll attend to em!"
As the crew hurried along , the
beach, a flankiug party going out
through the dunes to trap the smug
glcrs, in the rear, the captain ex-
V LUCY V U
H FITCH PERKINS ' J
plained to Hunting Eye in siinpte
fashion what smugglingmeant.
""In some countries, where the
working people" are paid less than
here, goods can te made cheaper
tnan nere. it -we lethips bring these
goods here, free, that -would hurt
American workers. So tho govern
ment puts a tax on these goods, so
that they will cost about the same
price as goods made here. . That's
fair to the peopte who 4work here,
and, at the same time, it gives the
government some of the money
which it-needs for running he coun
try. Some things which are luxuries
like jewels are taxed heavily. So,
if.peophe can succeed in'' bringing
those goods in secretly, without the
government kndwing,- they escape
the tax. In that way they can sell
thc-goods cheaply and still make a
government! said Tluntine Eve,
lhat is wrong. One does not hurt
one's own tribe."
'You bet it's wrong'- said the
captaift of the coast guards. And,
warning Hunting Eye -to keep
silence, the crew stole noon the
smugglers unobserved and caught
them, red-handed, with the goods.
j "Not cheat the tribe this fime!"

Milk Wagon Runs Away With the
' : Dutch Twins. .
vPeter, and Paul "got up." They
jumped forward and began to run!
Kit ran as fast as his legs would
go beside the dogs, holding the line's.
But the dogs had four legs apiece,
and Kit had only two; so you see
he couldn't keep up very well. . '
Kat began to scream the moment
that. Peter and Paul begn to run.
The dogs thought that something
that made a dreadful noise was after
them, andTliey ran faster than ever.
You 'see, Grandfather Winkle never
in the world screamed like that, and
Peter and Paul didn't kndw what to
make of it. So they ran and tan
and ran. .
Kat held on the -best she could, but
she bounced up ever so far in the
air every time the cart struck a
bump in the, street. So did the milk
cans; and when they came down
again tjie milk splashed out. " '
Kat didn't always come down in
the same spot. All the spots were
hard, so it didn't really mate'r much
which one she struck as sjie came
down. - . '
But Kat-dfdn't think about that;
she just screamed. And Peter and
Paul ran and ra '.'and Kit ran and
ran, until he couldn't run any more;
he just sat down hard on the pave-
men and slid along. But he didn't
let go of the lines 1
When Kit sat down, it jerked the
dogs so hard that they stopped sud
denly. But Kat didn t stop; she
went right oil She flew out over
the front of the cart and landed
on the ground, among all sof Peter
and Paul's legs! Then she' stopped
DoWe Yawn? ,
(Copyright, 1920 by The Wheeler
Oxygen is one 6f the elements
of the air which is essential to
the healthy, normal action of the
lungs. Unless a sufficient quanti
ty of oxygen is taken into the
body, the lungs become' irritated
and flash a signal to the brain
that a larger supply' is neeces
sary. The easiest method to
overcome this shortage of oxy
gen is, of course, to take in an
increased amount of air at one
time. Hence the nerves which
regulate our breathing apparatuv
react upon our jaw and throat
muscles, causing , both of them
to open wide. Expansion of tile
lungs at the same time jresults
in the inhalation 6f- a much larg-
cr amount of air j than is obtain
able through ordinary breathing,
thus supplying the needed
amount of dxygen.
The rea'son that yawning is
usually connected with a feel
ing ofdrowsiness is because a
desire for sleen is a sicn that the
body is tired and is seeking-a 1
stimulant ot some, kind either
rest or an added amount of oxy
gen, the fuel which keeps the
human furnace burning bright
ly. The satisfaction which fol
lows' a yawn i due to the fact
that the blood has received an
extra supply of the material
which it needs and we immedi
ately feel the benefit of this.
