ONE YEAR TO LIVE—
OR TWENTY 1
WOMAN doomed by radium
poisoning to just “one year to
live” was awarded $10,000 in cash
and a monthly income for the rest
of her life. And the whole world
wondered as to what she would do
with the money and the year of
life allotted to her. Just which of
the great variety of paths known
and imagined would this woman
choose to try to find happiness for
that one year.
It is a question that many of us
have at times toyed with, that
thought of what we should do with
our lives if we knew we had but a
year to live. Here in her own words
is part of the answer of a woman
to whom that problem Is only too
real:
“I could find, I knew, no greater
happiness," she says, “than that
which would be mine by making the
folks happy. Then just as quickly
as possible I would go away some­
where and try to forget everything
unpleasant in the past years.”
Actions speak louder than words.
And the first act of this woman on
receiving her money grant was to
apply part of It to paying off the
mortgage on her parents’ home,
also interest and taxes that had
been overdue,
“It made me so
happy," she says, "to see father re­
lieved of those worries.” Next—
oh, yes, girls, this woman is one
of us—her thoughts turned to new
clothes. She bought the things she
had always wanted, and then went
off to “forget everything unpleas­
ant” and get as much joy and hap­
piness as possible out of every day.
It is a great joy to be able to add
to this true life story, that the
woman of whom we write has al­
ready outlived by several years her
doom of “One year to live.” I’rob
ably none better deserves the wish
in the heart of every person In the
world who knows her story that
many, many years more be added
to them. And let us hope that she
will live those additional years a«
she has lived the past, trying to
make others happy, to forget every­
thing unpleasant, and to get ns
much joy as possible out of every­
day. Doubtless she will—for she
has the insight and wisdom of
those who live with death.
Strange, is it not, that more of
us with unnumbered years ahead
of us do not live by the same slm
pie principle of making others
happy, forgetting everything' un­
pleasant, and getting ns much Joy
as possible out of every day! It
works as well for a day’, a year, or
twenty years.

WHIMS OF FASHION
Just as the renaissance influences
the colors, so does it the fabrics.
The military note creeps Into
fashions whether or not we be­
lieve in wars.
A growing number of women like
casual tweed coats for everyday
wear, and with this type of coat one
may wear scarfs for several sorts.
Schiaparelli offers a new sensa­
tion—a dance dress with panta­
lettes, belt with padlock.
Ermine-trimmed woolen or vel­
vet suits are reported selling well
in many sections of the country.
Pleats are important part of the
fashion picture and occur In day­
time, dinner and evening fashions.
Watch the hood as the newest

in furs, it Is now used in fabrics

Fur hats are keyed to many cus-

They may be

In general, foods deteriorate on
ageing with varying intensity. This
Is manifested by sue visible con­
ditions as mold, rot and loss of
moisture which Is concomitant with
a hardening effect. Many times,
however, this deterioration can
only be detected by the change in
aroma and flavor, as with butter
and eggs, and coffee belongs to this
class. One of the greatest causes
for spoilage in foods is the pres­
ence of oxygen. This gas is Instru­

rious constituents of foods which
have an affinity for it and thereby
alters the flavor of the entire food.
