Samoa™ Fear Native
Oath More Than Bible
Apia, Samoa.—White men who introduced the system of plotting land
and the surveyor's methods of defining boundaries, brought with them to
Samoa the white man's method of
administering oaths.
So, officially, the native Samoan
places his hand upon the Holy Bible
to swear that title to a certain piece
of land belongs to him. But those
who have lived here long know that
at heart the native does not have the
degree of fear when an oath is taken
upon a Bible that he had for the old
Samoan oath. Where grave issues
are at stake he is apt to discard the
modern form for the old one.

Jim Driscoll was conscious of mingled emotions. The tlrst was of
shame and humiliation. Of all the
neighbors gathered there, not one had
a bad word for him. But the second
was of disgust. Could It be possible
that his wife had gone to the hospital
and actually mistaken another man
for himself?
Or was somebody lying'/ That was
a more probable explanation. Of
course 1 It was a lie. His impulse
was to run into the room, but he restrained himself, aud he heard another speaker say:

saw Mary Driscoll start off this morning, she looked actually pretty In that

sorrow. She was crying, and she
couldn't hide it, but she looked like a

back the youth in some people."
"She's had sorrow enough," broke
In the first sneering voice that Driscoll had heard. "Living with a man
like Jirn is enough to make any woman wish she was dead."
Driscoll knew the speaker. He was
the cashier of the local bank, and
about the only friend he had In Boxville. And the sudden realisation of
the fellow's treachery almost unnerved the watcher at the window.

up In his hatred and moodiness that
he had never been able to tell hiB true
friends from the false ones. He had
acted like a foof An overwhelming
sense of remorse came over him. If

And, unable longer to restrain himself, he sprang for the door, opened
it, and rushed Into the parlor.
"I'm here, and I've heard every

"You, Mr. Nevins—" he turned to the
cashier—"were my best friend, and
you can walk right out of my house

"Well, Jim Driscoll was a good man
in his way." said Miss Hemans, wiping her eyes.

chance to redeem his life was gone,
an agonizing sense of hopelessness
crushed him.

that submerged Itself and stayed under water for ten solid hours. However, when other tortoises were Imprisoned In wire cages under water
they gave out In only about an hour.
Professor Parker is of the opinion
that a great deal depends on whether
the tortoise is "hiding his breath"
by his own volition. The caged tortoises struggled to find a way out of
their prison, and thus probably used

more rapidly than the quiescent animal that had made the dire voluntarily. Alligators were found to survive under water for i s much as six
hours, and caymans, which are aliiratortlke reptiles from Central America, conld hold out for two hours. This

going in a house at the front
door and out by the back door
brings strangers is a superstition practically universal in this country and
Europe. Doors were most serious matters to the ancients and a decided tinge
of superstition hung about them.
Among the Romans, Janus, a most esteemed deity, was the god of doors. He
was double-faced and, looking both
ways, could watch the front and rear
entrances. The door of his temple was
opened only when there was war. At
such times it was necessary to release
his full Influence to guard the entrances—the doorways—of the country.
But our superstition that going In
theafront door and out at the back
brings strangers is evidently a survival not from any mythology, but
arises from an actual experience of
our barbarian ancestors, an experience not infrequent even In our own
day. A barbarian fleeing from the
avengers of blood or of other dereliction of his tribe, and taking shelter
in a friendly hut, would sneak out by
the back way to the safety of the forest when he heard his pursuers approaching and the trackers, strangers
to the owner of the hut, would trail
him to the front door hy which he
had entered. If the hut had no hackdoor—as was probable—the fugitive's
necessity for avoiding observation Impelled him to make one by going
through the back of the building. In
the middle ages, when houses generally had two doors, men were literally hunted and a fugitive going In at
the front door of his friend's dwelling
often literally "brought strangers" In

envy and meet with obstacles from
their Gallic rivals.
Nevertheless, following the successful proof by them of their ability actually to fly and, what was more Important, to guld* their machine along

was arranged in their honor. Americans had a good deal to do with
bringing the dinner about, but all the
French aeronauts or would-be aeronauts were Invited and a considerable number of them attended.
Naturally, there was a deal of
speechmaking. The chief orator was
a distinguished Frenchman who devoted the... most of his remarks to
claiming that France had led the
world in the new Held of endeavor—
or so he Insisted—and to proclaiming
that future developments ever would

The Junior miss wears practically
the same type of frocks as does her
youthful mother these days. In fact,
observes a fashion writer in the Detroit Free Press, we find the same
garments In junior departments we
find in the misses' and ladles' departments/ - Waistlines are somewhat
wider and skirts a bit fuller for the
growing girl whose body is more active than an older person's.
At present washable silks such as
crepe de chenes are favorites for the
Junior girl. Colors are plain and the
sports type of dress Including both
straight-lined and jumper models are
generally chosen. Long sleeves prevail
In almost every instance and collars
are of tailored twpe with the V-shaped
front opening. Belts, worn low over
the hips, are frequently stressed for
the youthful figure.
Pastel shades predominate in the
Junior departments with such colors
as pale pink, green, yellow and sunny
leading. Recently, bright red sports
dresses have been introduced into the
Junior-wear departments, but the paler
shades in washable silks are preferable for the young miss for day wear.
Men's shirting material In wide stripes
is being worn by the younger set at
resorts for morning wear to BO me extent.
For afternoon occasions, the Junior
has the preference of flowered chiffons, georgettes and lingerie frocks.
The flowered georgettes are invariably somewhat tailored In Junior
sizes, having long sleeves, tailored
collars with scarf ends or occasionally the winged-back drape.
Evening finds the young miss
dressed in sheer organdies, ecru, laces,
pastel chiffons or crisp taffetas. The
bouffant frock or the frock with many
ruffles on the skirt is particularly Interesting in youthful models. In fact,
the only time when the little miss can
afford to stay away from seml-tallored
effects is at evening time. She may
then wear the slim bodice with the
full circular skirt, the slender dress
with numerous ruffles on the skirt or

women was started over a year ago—
It was the house of "Anna" that started It—It was met with more ridicule
than admiration. Nobody realized the
extent to which it would "catch on."
A great many of these costumes now
are te be seen at the smart restaurants in the Bols de Boulogne. When
worn by really elegant women, says a
writer In "A. G. B.," one of the leading magazines of fashion, they lose
their slightly doubtful significance and
are quite*.as pretty as the prettiest
decollete. It Is generally admitted
that they go very well with short hair.
One of the most effective seen
lately was made of a sort of green silk
rep with thread lame and was worn
with a skirt of plaited gold In lace.
There is a marked demand these
days for plain crepes, georgettes and
radiums from women who wish to
paint designs on them and so develop
their own novelties.
Patterns of printed stuff are bought
and the designs are copied in a somewhat lavish manner, actual paints beta* used. Much of this kind of work

1. It is proof that the grouping of strong companies in one big family is economically
sound. Large scale operations do make possible important economies; and these economies do benefit the buyer, in greater value.
The public has recognized this principle and
profited by it.
Washable Silks Favored;
Long Sleeves Prevail
As the volume of production increases there
must be a corresponding increase in the
values offered. The new aeries of cars just
presented does embody larger values; It is a
direct reflection of the fact that more than
1,075,000 General Motors cars were sold
at retail during the year just closed. The
added quality has been built in where its
presence counts most in comfort and safety
and long life.
2. Increased public patronage involves Increased obligation* General Motors is directly responsible for the welfare of its 152,000
employees and their families, its 20,000
dealers, and indirectly for the six thousand
companies which furnish it with supplies
and materials — at least a million men.
With great pride we invite you to inspect
these new General Motors cars.

Cocaine Best of
Local Anesthetics
The discovery of local anesthetics
revolutionized surgery, says Dr. Emll ,
Mayer in the Hygeia Magazine. ID
1884 Dr. Karl Roller of Vienna announced that he bad dropped a solution
of cocaine in a patient's eye, and then
operated on the eye withont any pain
to the patient or loss of consciousness.
Cocaine baa been found to be useful
for many sorts of operations, and particularly valuable in the saving of
time In the hospital and in the absence of unpleasant after-effects that
sometimes accompany general anesthesia.
In 1886 there was perfected a
preparation from the dried extract of
certain glands that so contracts the
blood vessels as to render the parts
bloodless. Now an operation may be
both bloodless and painless and performed without loss of consciousness,
or any great amount of time.
