A Sign of Rain.
Over near the garden fence layman
old hollow log. Grandfather Mole
discovered it one day, and, thinking
ii would be a fm place to look (or
pnibs and other good things, he
crept into one end of it.
If he had been able to see, near the
other end of the log, a pair of bright
eyes that peered at him out of the
.darkness perhaps he would have
backed out in .a hurry. But it was
ull right. The owner of the two
eyes was only Sandy Chipmunk. And
he spoke pleasantly to Grandfather
Mole, in a soft sort of chatter, be
cause he didn't want to alarm him.
"Good afternoon!" said Grand
father Mole. At Sandy's first word
he had jumped. But as soon as he
knew who was. in the Ior with him
he felt safe enough. "What are yon
doing here, young man?''. Grand
"I came in to get out of the rain,"
Sandy told hint.
"Rain!" Grandfather Mole ex
claimed. "It's not raijiing!"
"I know that. But it's going to,"
Sandy Chipmunk replied.
"There's not -the least sign of rain,"
Grandfather Mole declared. Befng
"th(?r a lot of stufi2 paople in this1
valley," Grandfather ibis retorted,
older than Sandy, he didn't hesitate
to dispute what $andy said. And he
never troubled himself to apologize,
cither. Sandy Chipmunk noticed
that, for he had been carefully reared
by his mother. But he knew that
Grandfather Mole was considered an
odd old gentleman. And besides,
what could Sandy have said that
wouldn't have sounded rude?
"There's not a sign of rain,"
Grandfather Mole repeated, "so far
as I can see."
"How far can you see?" Sandy in
"Tut, tut!" said Grandfather 'Mole.
. "What I meau is that I haven't no
ticed anything that foretells rain.
For instance, I haven't had a twinge
of rheumatism since I don't know
"Well. I'm Rlad of that, anyhow."
Sandy assured him. "But I saw a
sign of rain mMy that perhaps you
never notifed." ,
"What was that?"
"Farmer Green's cat was washing
her face the doorsteps." Sandy
cxplainedClumphantly. "It's a sure
sign of raffl. My mother has never
knowiMt to fail."- ,
"Farmer Green's cat!" Grandfather
Mole repeated ifter him. And he
.-.huddcrcd as he spoke. "Don't you
know that she's not & trustworthy
person? You surely don't depend
on her I hope! She's not depend
able." "Well, you can always depend on"
bcr to jump at you," Sandy ob
''She's a coward that's what she
is," Grandfather Mole scolded. "You
never heard of her chasing anybody
that was bigger than herself, did
vou? You never heard of her at
:ackiug Fatty Coon!"
., Sandy Chipmunk said that if the
:at hunted coons, she kept it to her
self. '" "
, "She's too wise to run any risk."
laid Grandfather Mole. "But if she's
cashing her 'ace just bccausQ she
expects rain, then she's stupid.
"If the cat wants to wash her face
ivhy doesn't she stick her head ou'.
' in "the rain?" Grandfather Mole de
manded. And .without waiting fot
his young companion to answer he
went on to say that in his pinion
mybody that washed his face in any
thing but, dirt was stupid beyond all
hope. "I . claim." .said Grandfather
Mole, "that there's nothing quite like
l dirt bath."
x "There aren't many that would
farce with you," Sandy Chipmunk
"There's a lot of stupid people in
this valley." Grandfather Mole re
torted. Sandy Chipmunk thought deeply
for a few momojts.
"I know of one person who would
nav you were right." he remarked at
"Who's that.' Grandfather asked
turn. ' i
"The boy. Johnnie Green!" Sandy
Chipmunk replied. "If you could
sec his face' vou'd know that he
takes a dirt bath every day!"

HIM A "
More Truth Than Poetry
- By JAMES J. MONTAGUE.
A Quandary N
'Save up your pennies," said the ad,
"The business situation
Is rapidly becoming bad,
And thrift must save the nation."
And so we rationed our cigars
And other costly follies,
, Refrained from buying motor cars
And rode to work on trolleys.
The ridicule of friends we braved
By wearinp rubber collars,
And in a little while we saved
Five hundred thousand dollars.
v Another ad gave this advice:
' "Spend Money! Do not Hoard It!
Thrift costs Us All Too High a Price !
The country can't afford it!
So rather than have business crash
To utter ruination,
We saw that all our hoarded cash
Was put in circulation.
On luxuries our coin we blew
Here, there and over yonder,
Till riot a solitary sou
Was left to us to suander.
And now another ad makes known
x The shortage of production
And bares the fact that thrift alone
Can save us from destruction.
To save our cash in large amounts,
Its serious advice is,
For only men with bank accounts
Can pass the coming crisis.
But as for us, too well, alas,
The second ad we trusted
The coming crisis we can't pass
For we're already busted.
Some lawyers show you how to pay your income tax, but the lawyers
most in demand just now are those who can show you how not to pay it.
Abundance of Work
One reason why unemployment has not hit New York' so very
hard is that there are so many jobs to be had on graft investigating
It looks as if Henry Ford in his attack on the Jews is only
going to make another flivver.

Yellow is today's lucky color, and
They are picked up by superstitious
people. And few there be who, see
ing a pin, will not stoop to pick it
up "for luck." It is doubtful if
there is a more wide-spread super
stition than this among English
speaking peoples. Some say that to
get the full benefit of the omen the
pin should be lying with the point
toward you but these are fussy
people. This superstition has as its
basis a psychological fact. If the
mind is so alert and active that the
eye perceives so small an object
as a dropped pin, it would naturally
follow that the man would as a rule,
accomplish a successful day's work.
The idea that he should pick up
the pin-is a, survival from the days
when pins were objects of considerable-value
compared to what they
are now; and picking up the lost
pin showed that the man was sav
ing .as well as observing an addi
tional cause for a successful day.
And there is the same connection
today, trifling as is now the value
of a pin. For a man who picks up
a stray pin not only shows that his
mind ' is alert -and his observation
keen, but also thart he is no scorncr
of trifles. So why should he not
on a day when his mentality is func
tioning in this manner meet with
that success, which men call "luck."

"The Dice of
Where It Started
' The Ice Industry.
The Greeks and Romans kept ice
by burying it under ground. The
first ice houses were constructed at
Rome-by the Emperor Nero. The
first cargo of ice that was shipped
was sent from a pond in Canal street,
New York, to Charleston, vS." C, in
1799. The pioneer of the ice indus
try was Frederick Tudor of Boston,
who entered the business in 1805, and
succeeded in making it practicable
after many failures.

Every manufacturer of washing ma
chines knows that very few oT his cus
tomers, even the most enthusiastic, are
getting anything like the efficiency out of
.heir machines of which they are" capable.
Their explanation is that so many women
still cling to the od-fashioned bar soap or
the newer soap flakes or chips, which are
nothing but bar soap , in a slightly more
convenient and infinitely more expensive
There is. however, a wonderful new
powder oh the market called LINN, which
women who have used it say just about
doubles the value of their washing ma
chines. It softens hard water instantly

Furthermore, it is guaranteed to wa

property of dissolving dirt without in any
