BY THE WAY (Continued)

ciation-"I think you have acute appendicitis." Flapper-"Oh, thank you, doctor."

Under the head "And Cooing?" a house organ reprints this advertisement from the New York "Times:"

Neat, attractive girl wanted to do billing. Address Box 362, etc.

"Your column of August 30 quotes from a newspaper of 1783 a note about Byrne, the famous Irish giant, saying that his friends planned to take his body to Ireland for burial." So a subscriber writes, and proceeds to tell the story's sequel: "Dr. John Hunter, the famous surgeon of those times, succeeded in obtaining the body, as he wanted the skeleton for the Museum of the College of Surgeons in London. Byrne, it seems. dreaded dissection by Hunter, and shortly before his death arranged with several of his countrymen to have his body buried at sea. The undertaker, who had been offered £500 for the giant's body by the great anatomist, managed that while the escort were drinking at a certain place on the journey seawards, the coffin should be locked up in a barn. There some men he had concealed speedily substituted an equivalent weight of paving-stones for the body, which was at night forwarded to Hunter." The giant's skeleton, 7 feet 7 inches high, may still be seen in London, it is said.

From giants to dwarfs is an easy transition. The same day the above note was received the following paragraph appeared in a New York newspaper:

Peppino Magro, aged twenty-nine, who is twenty-two inches high and weighs only forty-five pounds, appeared yesterday at the Federal naturalization bureau, Brooklyn, to make application for his final papers to become a citizen. They were granted and he will come into full citizenship in ninety days. He gave his occupation as a freak.


Asked if

he was married he said: "No, but sometimes I think I would like to be."

General Tom Thumb, it will be remembered, who became probably the most famous freak of history under the management of P. T. Barnum, was twenty-four inches high when he was first caught by the famous showman, but grew to nearly forty inches.

As a refinement of luxury, a foreign motor car firm advertises that the win dows in its car are "made of Purdah glass, which renders the occupants of the car invisible, although they can see outside in a subdued light."

Visitor to very quiet seaside place (as reported in "Punch")-"And what ever do you people do with yourselves in the winter?"

Landlady-"Oh, we talks and laughs about the people what stays 'ere in the summer."

October 27th has been appointed as Navy Day.

The purpose of the Navy Club of New York is to take care of the Navy ashore by furnishing them with a suitable shore home or headquarters in New 1ork, where they can have when on liberty, sleeping accommodations, a club room where they can read and write, check room and post office, and a canteen where they can. get food at cost price.

The medal is a symbol of your interest in the welfare of the boys in the Navy, As this is the port most frequented by ships of the Atlantic Squadron, and as we take care of the boys from every State in the Union, this appeal is of more than local interest.

As a symbol of your desire to co-operate, we are asking you how many medals you will take for the members of your club, or employees, to be worn on Navy Day, and how many you will underwrite. Price 25c for the size shown above and 10c for a smaller size. The medal is done in bronze by Sally James Farnham, the sculptress who patriotically gave her services for the production of the original of this model, and as a work of art, it is a valuable souvenir of the cause.

Telegraph at our expense, the number of large and small medals you will underwrite and where they are to be delivered.

We hope that at least two hundred thousand of these medals will be worn on
Navy Day..
Yours very truly,

St. Nicholas has been a most important factor in children's lives for years. Its clean, healthy stories, its vivid articles on history, its interesting accounts of science, hold and train youthful minds. Contests in writing, photography and other subjects supply a stimulus for the development of resource and originality.

There is no other children's publication that exerts such a dominating influence on their development as St. Nicholas. It is a guide, a companion, a tutor-a specialist in child culture. Do not deny it to your children.

One year's subscription is only $4-half what you pay for your morning paper. Send check or money order to St. Nicholas Subscription Department, N-22, 353 Fourth Avenue, New York.

Who'll Win the
Money Awards


IFE INSURANCE has become an Institution. It is performing a great service. But how many of us have really noted the benefits conferred by it in our own communities? We accept life insurance quite as we accept the public school and the church. Yes, such institutions are benefiting the public to a wonderful degree; but who can say as to A, B, C, how he has been benefited? The influence of the church and the school are rather intangible. Life insurance speaks with the dollar-mark, and its trail can be traced.

proceeds of an insurance policy and see what has

There is Dora Briggs, for instance, who was the recipient of $5,000 from her father. How has she used the money? How has she been benefited? There is Albert Southwick. He was left $10,000 by his uncle. What use has he made of the money? Has he been benefited? By its result you can tell. The Postal Life Insurance Company has asked to have made known to it instances of specific benefits performed by life-insurance money. We want our policyholders to locate the instances and write statements about them.

The ten instances judged (a) to be the best and (b) told best in 800 words, or less, will entitle the writers to money awards, graded for the points of excellence from $5.00 to $50.00. These awards are open only to the class of 1922 (those holding policies dated in the present year), including those who will take out policies between now and January 1, 1923.

How such money saved the family from distress, due to the loss of the breadwinner, should be shown. How the child was educated, and what happened to him in later life, should be most interesting. How a widow in her later years was saved from penury and was enabled to help others ought to make a fine story. How debts have been paid, and valuable property, and perhaps a business, saved from bankruptcy proceedings, would contrast with the unprotected business and the foreclosure that might have followed. Important details should be given.

The judges will be selected from among our own official staff.
All manuscripts must be in hand by January 1, 1923.

Applicants for new insurance should furnish the
Company (a) full name, (b) age and (c) occupation.

Teaching without words

LOVELY CHILDREN! What a struggle it seems, sometimes, to keep them so!

Yet mothers can give them a momentous start toward cleanliness and beauty-merely by suggestion and example.

•We know one understanding mother who teaches cleanliness by this simple plan:

She talks about how good it makes her feel to be clean. She leaves her own cake of Ivory Soap where the children can easily reach it. And she leaves other cakes wherever they wash.

This mother knows how quick

youngsters are to imitate, and she finds that these cakes of Ivory do their gentle, but thorough, cleansing with hardly a word from her to the children.

Ivory is the nicest soap you can imagine for your children and for you. It cleans safely-that is what all soaps should do. And while it is cleaning, you experience with Ivory all the delightfulness of the seven most desirable qualities of fine soap-purity, mildness, whiteness, fragrance, rich lather, rinsing promptness, and "It Floats."

With all seven of these desirable qualities, Ivory is naturally the favorite soap of most mothers.
