PAGE TWO Probably the radio has brought! us to the realization that we are as a people very careless with the King's English, though naturally the schools have been dwelling up- on this same subject for years and they have also helped. For myself, I am glad. There 13 noth- ing more pleasing to the ear than a well modulated voice that is heard to speak good language. No, I do not mean stilted and unnat- ural, for that is very boresome but the every day words pronounc- ed correctly and with the absence of: "ain't, have got, I done, we was, and where at," and many more. While listening to the radio we hear a word pronounced dif- ferently than is our usual method and we immediatel# get interested and talk it over, thereby impres- sing the correct pronounciation upon us. A dictionary is one of the most needed books in our homes, not to add to the book- shelves to collect dust, but to re- fer to many times a day. By the way, four out of five of us speak the last syllable of the word "dic- tionary" incorrectly. Look it up for yourself. And not only that word but get the habit of "a new word a day to keep illiteracy away." Who Wants These Books? There has come into my posses- sion four books to give to some girl or boy, man or woman. They are not new, but they are in fair condition and for the person who is inclined to be an artist they will be a very great help. It was a part of a mail instruction course and the set is very complete and will give directions for "Line, model, figure, animal drawing, letter designing, color rendering, illustrating, and designing. Frank- ly, I shall give them to the appli- cant who will show that they are ready to work with the books. Send your letter to Aunt Bess, Arlington, and I shall be glad to consider your request for the books. at4to Dear Aunt Bess: Will you kind- ly tell me the best method we should use to announce our en- gagement, and that will not be very expensive? We are a young couple and live in two different towns and tha is the reason that right way. Maggie and Jiggs. ii __ [ VERY( LATEST H00lru Ha00hatl Bunnies, chickens, kittens or ducks--you'll find them all well represented in the shops and de- partments where you go to buy clothes for babies and very little folks. This season they are espe- cially well represented and if you want your baby's wardrobe to be really up to date be surd that these small creatures are part of the decorative scheme. On blankets, crib covers, car- riage robes and bonnets you may use applique animals cut from white eiderdown. Turn in the THE HOME CIRCLE Suggestions for Mother And Ideas to Make the Home more cheerful By AUNT BESS Dear Maggie and Jiggs: To be- gin with I hope that your married life will not be as hectic as that portrayed by the cartoon "Maggie and Jiggs," which name you have signed to your letter. But to get back to your request, there are several ways in which you can an- nounce your engagement which will be entirely proper and inex- pensive. Of course the young la- dy will take the leading part and her friends should receive the an- nouncement a day or two before the prospective bridegroom's friends are allowed the secret. The young lady may wish to give just an informal luncheon to her most intimate friends where she will announce the affair and then let these friends spread the news to others. Then of course cards may be sent out with the an- nouncement to your circle of friends and relatives. On these cards I think it is nice to have an invitation to call on some special afternoon to meet the couple and their relatives. This afternoon or evening of the call should be most informal with conversation and a little music or cards and introduc- tions should be very simple. You must not forget after your closest friends have the announcement that the newspapers in your dif- ferent towns should have the cor- rect information, also. Good luck to you both and you have my sin- cere wish for your happiness. Someone has suggested that we try to avoid the subject of depres- sion as much as possible and al- though it is uppermost in our minds these days l do not believe that is a wise idea. Not long ago I attended a luncheon and after all the guests had gathered the hostess made the announcement that any person bringing up the subject of hard times would have to do some stunt in payment. It was surprising during the after- noon how many had to pay their forfeit in just the general trend of conversation. It was lots of fun and afforded a whole lot of amuse- ment, too, for the whole afternoon. I think this would be a good stunt at all our informal affairs for the next few months. Unc|e Ben says: Maybe the lence now instead of science. the edges, taking care that your stitches are small enough to hide unseen in the soft material. On knitted sweaters or caps the decoration can be made with cross stitches done in heavy silk or fine wool yarn in contrasting X xX color. On a white sweater you may work with yellow, red, pink or blue, while a tan or biege sweater may be trimmed with brown. Simply thread the yarn or silk into a coarse needle and work the cross stitches as you would on linen, taking one cross stitch in each stitch of the knitting. The di- agram shows how to take the cross stitches for a duck two inches in width. If you are uninterested in ducks and prefer some other de- vice, you can work out the ar- rangement of cross stitches with- out too great difficulty. Simply draw intersecting lines on a piece of paper and then experiment with the crosses until you have a design that pleases you. ' ' O DEATH OF JUDGE BLACK Judge William W.

The officers and several mem- bers of the Trafton Community club visited the local club last Monday at their regular business meeting. The object of this meet- ing was to foster a get-together spirit between the two communi- ties. It was exphdned and Concur- red in by all that if all rural dwel- lers wotld unite that their power to do things would be greatly en- hanced. Several able speakers from both clubs gave interesting talks and the evening was topped off with a tasty buffet luncheon.

Many Republican officials and other notables attended the Lin- coln birthday dinner held at the Masonic temple in Everett Satur- day evening. Among these were Gee. Roland H. Hartley, Lt. Gov- ernor John Gellatly, Land Commis- sioner Clark Savidge, N. D. She- walter, state superintendent of public instruction; Samuel J. Humes, state highway engineer, and nineteen members of the state senate and house of representa- tives. Nelson J. Craigue, Everett postmaster, presided in a very pleasing and urbane manner. Mes- sages from President Hoover, Sen. Jones and Cong. Hadley were read. The chair then introduced the various notables, some of whom spoke briefly. These included Gee. Hartley, Lt. Gee. Gellatly and Mayor Edwards who welcom- ed the G. O. P. hosts to the city. The governor spoke quite briefly and created considerable amuse- ment by his jibes at the other state officials present. He concluded by saying he would return "when these birds are absent" and would have plenty to say. Mrs. C. C. Gilman, state com- mittee woman, was chosen to in- troduce the grizzled veterans of the Civil war who were present. These were Comrades E. W. Son- (lerlin, 93; A. A. Hubbard, 89; Thee. Tart, 83; S. B. Tiff, 89, and J. H. Miner, of Marysville, 83. Needless to say, the old warriors received an ovation Each spoke a few words, it transliring that one had shaken bands with Lincoln and another had heard him speak m one of his debates with Stephen A. Doughts. One reverted to the present depression and advised all who heard to "vote for the best man," regardless of party label. Some self-appointed moderator thought this a rather dissonant note, so whispered in the old vet's ear a hint that he had talked long enough, but tbe old warrior bristl- ed up, shook his cane and said i effect'that he ,would talk as long as he pleased. The real address of the evening was delivered by W. J. liindley of Everett who paid an eloquent tri- bute to the character and l)ublic services of Lincoln and compared the abuse heaped upon the Eman- cipator with that now being di- rected against President ttoover whom he credited with being the only man who had come forward with a constructive program in the present great emergency. About four hundred attended the dinner including delegations from all parts of' the county. Among Arlington people present were Senator and Mrs. Gee. Mur- phy, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis C. Pal- mer, Arthur It. Moll, L. N. Jones, Joseph Mathews, C. L. Marsh, Paul Wangsmo and Fred Finger- son. -O YAKIMA WOMAN TAKFS OVER QUIL CEDA TAVERN Mrs. Evelyn Nelson and daugh- ter tIelen, formerly of Yakima, have taken over the Quii Ceda i Tavern, with the intention of cat- ering to tourist traffic.

BOVINE TUBERCULIN TESTS WILL BE MADE Snohomish county dairy herds are to be tested for tuberculosis again this year in a county-wide test, according to J. C. Exline, In- spector in charge, Olympia. This test, starting February 15th, will proceed until every dairy or beef animal in the county has been tested. About four inspectors will be on the job. The last county-wide test, tak- en in 1929, gave the county a mod- ified accredited standing, with an average of less than two- tenths of one per cent reactors. This showed an exceptionally clean bill of health and it is to be hoped that the results will be equally good this year. Experience has shown that the periodical test is the best means of eradicating T. B., as the elim- ination of infested animals pre- vents the spread of infection. As in previous tests, dairymen will be partially compensated for condemned animals from state and federal funds appropriated for the purpose. also have prixate banquet rooms where reserwttions may be made for parties. Mrs. Nelson is a sister of B. V. Pompella of this phtce and has been here for several weeks seek. ing a desirable location. Restless CHILDREN CDappamaREN will fret, often for t reason.
