ARE BURTON knew when he re- ceived that invitation to have dinner with his sister and her imsbnd that something was in the wind. "And when Sis promises my favorite fried chicken and mushrooms--well, little brother knows his leg is going to he pulled In some way." IAttle brother was quite right. It ws :lust following his second helping, large, fat drumstick, that Betty said sweetly : "Yo know, Carey, Sam and I are going off again to France ands" "Oh, that's it, and I am to have that infernal bother of renting the apart- meat for you. The scramble last time wU like an Irish meeting, and I spent three whole days dashing from the omce to the apartment with an assort- mane of apartment seekers.  'You're the first tion of the apart- meat hunter's guide," laughed Sam. "I guess wed bette ask S150 month and there won't be ouch a riot." Ctroy found himself in for it, so he became resigned, put th advertise- mint ha the daily papers and his own olce address and telephone, made the vtOry, saw Sam and Betty off and awaltad the rush. Thee wer two inquiries before he reached the oflce, and along they me until Oarey was quite fed up telling peopl about the apartment. It wm the voice of ohn Wilson over he phone, however, that prompted Qal'@y to sle the rght tenant. "If that apartment's the right thing," said Wilson, -rll send my check to- day. Mrl. Wilson Is coming In all the way from Ealthampton, hoping we can sura it, and 8ld she'd be there bout twdve." Iio It haPpened that Oarey waited the arrival of Mrs. Wilson. Of course, he had not thought she would be such charming woman. But a@ eartalnly seemed charming when h@ stood poised In the doorway with an lnqulrin look in bee big soft eyes. Thiswas the momut for which Ctrey blessed his sister for asking his asld|tanc In renting the apartment. 'What lovely apartment," she ex- [ claimed, "and a good vlew of the Hud- [ on. Oh, dear, I do hope Mr. Wilson ] told you how very much we want it?" i She "ildorlg eyes on Car "I a i felt bewildered by their brfl- t lttm 1 Ctr ghed un remembem h titt Mx. Wfl had all but settled it for her. " you and your husband seem dflned to have drawn the prize from the multitude, why not take the keyl I i for good" & tmrlous smile crinkled the fair O'S eye "But won't your wife want to--well --look us over, too?" "My sister," eoected rey, is on the high seas." "Oh," commented the lady. Having get the Informatl?n, she emed more animated. "Is thsru any way we eed t in touch with you this eveninj-- dmould ay quutons come up which we mht want to ask you about?'' Oared, gave her hie card and telephone mb. Aftra- a moment or two longer he Im to watch her vanSsh Into the sub- way. The rut of the afternoon seemed both nhort and long. Always through (uy's brifln kept running, "Thou lhalt not vet thy neighbor's wife," lint tat didn't prevent h heart los- k a beat at the very remembrance e( hop loveUnese each time the tele- Mmne rang. He hoped against hope that some UormaUon would be in demand about the apartm#nt but it was not until niter five that Wilson rang him up. "I Jay, old chap," as/d Wilson, "my wife Is tremendously taken with the aimrtment and wants to celebrate. We wonder if you'd waive convention and Join as at dinner and a show. My ltar is along and it will ust make a foursome." Thus It was that Oarey, armed with two eg the daltisst, tiny nosegay he Gould astute, met Mr. Wilson, his wife md sister and rted off. Carey was about to tuck the sister, ea he suFposed, under ! protective wing, when Wilson stopped him with a laugh. "Mrs, Wilson and I have been mar- tied five years, but I still prefer to lake charge of her--rather than let time other fellow do iL" "Oh. I say," laughed Carey with flus that was more Joyous than apologetic. "I supposed," he looked In- eeiminatlngly at that wonder woman who was not his nelgbbor's wife, "in fact, I was led to believe---" "'It Wall your own mistake." said WUson demurely, "I only speak Voodoo Has Disappeared From Haunts of Negroes Voodoo, or hoodoo, as most of the ignorant negroes called It, was a mix- ture of witchcraft and primitive re- ligion that held a sizable proportion of our black people In its grip for many years and up almost to recent times, declares a writer Lu the Chi- cago Tribune. Voodoo has disappeared from many places where it once was a flourishing evil Here and there in isolated regions of the south it is said that Voodoo rites still are prac- ticed under cover; but though the bulk of the negro population has been elucated away from this form of sav- agery, many of the superstitious be- liefs of voodoo 'still are clung to by the black people. Voodoo men everything to the negro of the south. It was first of all his religion, and it included con- Jung, sorcery, the making of charms and egtes, the casting of spoils, the heg of the sick, and the r/rising of the dead. Throughout the south the druggists of the cities and the towns }ways kept on hand adequate sup- plies of sunkroot, sauafras, lode- stone, brimtone, asafoetida, resin, and bluestone, to sell to the conjuring doctors and the voodoo priestesses for the making of Charms. It would re- quire a large book to begin to tell of all of the strange practices of the priests and priestesses of voodoo. No man or woman vet has lved who has had a complete understanding of this strange institution's many rami- fications. The lucky rabbit foot and the breast bone of chicken are part of voodoo, Just as was the wet. hlp of the serpent and the drinking of goat's blood.

Wile generally good-tempered wlth humans, he Is ever ready for trouble If the challenge Is made Stout-heart- ed and game to the death, he asks no quarter.

Hona $pmist Animal No animal is known to have exceed- 1 the speed attained by the horse. Instantaneous PhOtographs of one fa- mous Spedmen showed the full length of one complete stride of about 26 feet.

The dog, on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is dd to run at the rate of 15 yards per second under the most favorable conditions.

JONES CAN READ AT NIGHT .. this statement may sound absurd.., but is it? Until recently Mr..Jones couldn't read at nights . . a condition over which Mr. Jones worried. The swiftness with which national and international affairs were sweeping by was more than Mr. Jones could keep pace with. He wasslippin.., the kibitzer at round table discussions . . the lifelessness of the party . . . the man who should know but didn't. And why couldn't Mr. Jones read at night? A sim- ple answer . . . TOO MUCH LIGHT . . . too many bright lamps to glare down on the paper with the devastin toll of drowziness, headache, and jumpy nerves. But now there is a vast difference. The NEW REFLECTOR TYPE FLOOR LAMP Mr. ,lanes bought the house for Christmas has turned the trick. This new lamp eliminated all the harsh lares and lurking shadows and in their places provided a soft mellow glow that made night readin a comfort and a pleasure. Now Mr. Jones can read for hours. Every home should have proper lightin . . . it is essential forood health. The NEW REFI,ECTOR TYPE FIOOR LAMPS now on display at the local stores provide just the light tbat is needed . . . indi- rect light.., the kind light.
