To prevent clothes from freezing to the clothesline rope boil it for half an hour or so in salt water. This will also pre­vent the line from tangling. The clothes­pins should be boiled in salt water too. To remove frost from windows and wind­shields, use the back of a comb. Longer skirts may make a girl look taller, but they won't make a man look longer.

THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS AWAY A mighty monarch in the days of old Made offer of high honor, wealth and gold To one who should produce in form concise A motto for his guidance, terse, yet wise; A precept soothing in his hours forlonn, Yet one that in his prosperous days would warn. Many the maxims sent the king, men say: The one he chose, "This, too, shall pass away." Has some misfortune fallen to your lot? This, too, will pass away, absorb the thought, And wait ----- your waiting will not be in vain, Time gilds with gold the iron links of pain. The dark today leads into light tomorrow; There is no endless joy, no endless sorrow. Only the sunny soul respects its God. Since life is short, we need to make it board; Since life is brief, we need to make it bright; Then keep the old king1s motto well in ! sight, And let its meaning permeate each day Whatever comes --- "This, too, shall pass away." --------Ella Wheeler Wilcox Miss Edna Mae Harris entertained at a :Trousseau Tea, Wednesday afternoon at the jhome of her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Ervin I Harris.
