Jim III I I I THE rRENTON SUN, TRENTON, ILLINOIS. [ +1 I / G HERE was the usual grinding of iron rails and a burr and pres- sure on the ears, as a long train, inbound from Boston, entered the tun- nel and made its way to the great terminal at Thirty-third street. As is always the case immediately before or after Christmas, the cars were crowd- ed with persons going to their homes or coming from some big holiday cele- bration and, as is also the case at ,uch times, everyone was in good hu- mor. As the door swung open and red- :apped porters met the heavily loaded travelers, there was the rush of a great, sweeping crowd past Jack Del- mer, as he stood a moment waiting to get his dlrectlon. He looked up. It was but a moment he had paused. He must go wlth the crowd--must follow em. Soon he had traversed the long platform, ascended a flight of stairs to another train level, and found hlm- self seated again in a great .steel oach. Passengers were coming on rapidly. Men, women and children were In the crowd. There were the well-do-do (or apparently so) as well as the poor- ly clad.. But In spite of class, or con- dltion, or age, the holiday spirit was still present wlth the crowd. But for that spirit, of course, there might have been trlctlon and bickering and dissension among the crowd. A man with a sense of humor and something of a tinge of irreverence once remarked that God could under- stand men. He was sure of that. But he doubted that He 'could under- stand a whole car full of them. It was a motley crowd, it is true. One wondered, naturally, whence they came and whither they were going. At last, the car was about full. It was but one minute to starting time. The sound of the testing of air brakes was heard. Conductors, brakemen and porters stood ready when the slgnal was given, to come aboard, dose the vestlbule doors and take their places. Just as the words "all aboard" were heard along the line, a young woman entered the car. She had raced for the train and was out of breath. She was not flustered or perturbed, how- ever. She stood in the aisle when the train started and looked toward the rear. Jack wondered where she would gravitate. Every seat In the car, save his, as far as he could see, had Its quota of two. She had passed this. Jack instinctively said to himself: "Wish she'd come here. rd much rkther sit with a nice looking girl next me than have some crude foreigner, reeking with the smell of onions, as a seatmate for the next three or four hours." His intentions were good. He was merely being honest with himself. Suddenly the girl turned. A pair of quick, bright brown eyes detected the vacant seat, and the girl moved to- ward it. Jack's eyes were as quick as hers. In a first glance he surveyed the girl from head to foot. As she Bested herself calmly beside him, he could have made an inventory of most of her wardrobe and belongings. He didn't miss the skating boots and skates, and the fine hockey stick she had with her. How could hal In- stinctively he sensed that the young woman was the kind whose compan- The Car Was About Full. lonshlp he could enjoy. He knew she was a refined and an educated girl. Refinement was written in every mo- tion of her body, and education and understanding in her features. She loved pleasure. He could see that too, Her natty sports costume told that plainly. The train rolled on. The tunnels were passed. Suddenly Jack grew more courageous and ventured: **You've been having a good Ume, I see." NI have, indeed." she replied; and every lntonatidn and inflection bespoke the lady. Perhaps Jack's appearance be- tokened a relatively high social train- ing. There was no fear or apprehen- alo in her voice. "Just the loveliest tlme," she continued, "a holiday house part7 on the Hudson. And what could have been more fun l" Jack learned then of the skating, llng, tobogganing and a score of other winter-time pleasures which the girl had enjoyed. "She has had a good time, I should say," he thought to himself, after an- other look in which he studied her carefully, almost analytically, "and she has helped to give a good time, too, I'll warrant." The train sped on. Conversation lagged, and both dozed. Cinders rat- tied down upon the car roof with the patter of a brisk April shower. Suddenly the girl turned toward Jack with a startled expression upon her face and the query: "Is it rain- Ing?" Jack peered through the dirty pane. He could not determine. "I believe not," he replied. The train sped on. Conversation became easier between the two. They felt as if they could be friends, If they were not already. The girl spoke more freely and fluently than the man. But then--It's a habit women have. When there's anything at all to talk about they will relate it in an interesting way--when there isn't they can talk about that, too. They have the genius 1 Anyway, she rattled along, her eyes lighting up with interest. She had had a good time. Jack knew by the incidents she related and the ray of pleasuee In her voice as she spoke. "I was expected home In Phlladel- phla," she said, "on the train leaving New York at six o'clock. Father and Brother were to meet me. Perhaps they're still waitlngl" she exclaimed. I hope not." "She told of the good time she and a large crowd of frtends had enjoyed on the snow-clad hills above Newburg, of coasting parties, and skating, and of dances that followed. She ex- plained how, missing an earlier train, she had run over to Brooklyn to visit I She Gave Another Look Toward Jack, an aunt and uncle, and how, because of this, she had missed still another train. ow she was troubled. Could Fa- .ther and Brother be" waiting yetall these long hoursat the station for her? Her bosom heaved with a sigh. "Would they scold her?" she won. dered. Of course, they must be an- noyed, but would they understand? She feared they might not. She be- came restless. As the train neared the station she became more so. When the train slowed, preparatory to making Its stop, she smiled at her traveling companion, remarked some- thing about the monotony of a tire- some Journey being broken by her meetlng him, picked up her neat bun- dle of sporting paraphernalia, in- i cluding her new" hockey stick, and passed out. As she stood on the platform walt- In,; for an elderly couple to precede her, she gave another look back to- wards Jack; their eyes met in s sort of understanding, and she passed out to the dimly lighted station platform. * 'rhere," he mused, "goes a fine girl, and one I would like to know." They had not exchanged names or told any- thing ntlmate about themselves. Pro- priety had prevented that, and Jack felt sure--they both did, in factthat they would never again meet.

As soon say when you cast your dice: "It will never fall with a six up." It will. You cannot say where, but you know that It will fall that way some time again. Jack didn't know this then, but months afterward, as guest at a house party In the Poconos, he looked into a face that seemed very familiar. St-" multaneously there was a sign of rec- ognition and an expression of glad. helm. We w111 not carry the story further. The ader knows what happens un- der such circumstances, when youth meets youth with a complete under- standing. There may be tiny differ- ences= In txpresslon, but the chief inci- dents in the chapters are similar. It was the outgrowth of a Christ- mas Journey, hut it brought to Jack the beginning of one of his happiest New Year's. (, ID|6.

Skirt Below Knee; Waistline Higher Showings for Resort Wear Will Influence Modes Season Ahead. Mldseason modes reflect the skirt that drops two or three inches below the knee, observes a fashion corre- spondent In the Kansas City Star. These mldseason showings, which are primarily for resort wer, will Influ- ence the modes of the season ahead. The silhouette sponsored is short and slim and the waistline averages the highest seen thus far in the mid- seasonshowings, altlmugh it is not yet raised quite to normal posltlon. Many bolero treatments are spon- sored In this collection, appearing In coats as well as in dresses, often ac- companied by a corresponding deep. flat tier treatment on the skirt. The skirt treatment noted in dresses, especially In taffeta models, consists of covering them entirely with inch-wlde plaited ruffles. An interesting feature of the collec- tion is suits with short Jackets, ac- companied by blouses of tub silk or tricot which are continued beneath the waistline under wrapped skirts as short culottes. Many plain black dresses are ac- companied by hip-length or three. quarter length straight coats in a light color, such as black dresses with coats of beige rep or of green chiffon. Black wlth pink Is a combination stressed by Jenny iq both day sad evening types. Two dinner gowns, labeled "Darling" and "Caress," shown together, are of black satin with pink yokes and pink facings to loose panels developed in two differ- ent interpretations. The long-sleeved dinner gown is fashion Indorsed in this collection, ap- pearing in dresses of black lace. The vogue of gay colorings in inter- esting combinations is indorsed In the collection of sports clothes which Martbe Regnler presents for mldsea- son. A striking example of these color combinations Is a model which com- bines crepe in an ashy turquoise shade with gray camel's hair Jersey. In an- ether costume apricot-colored kasha is used with green Jersey. Despite this combining of colors Marthe Regnler's collection Is more simple than were those shown in pre- vious season Wearable sports cos- tumes are ac-nted in both one and two-piece models, both types fre- quently combining a bloused bodice wlth a plaited skirt. The models which Bishop. presents for mldseason are for the most part afternoon and evening types. The sil- houette shows the sophisticated lines characteristic of this house with un. even hemlines accented. Fabric combinations are much In evidence, appearing.in such novel ver- sions as a chiffon bodice worn with a lame skirt, flat crepe con|bined with satin, and combinations of velvet with tulle. An interesting feature of the Mary Nowltzky models presented for mid- season is the emphasis placed on Re- diet's novelty cottons in the new sport clothes shown. These cottons sometimes are com- bined with silk or woolen fabrics, as In s costume which has a Jumper of novelty sponge handed in kasha, and a kasha skirt. Besides appearing in these fabric combinations, the novelty cottons are used for entire dresses, several being of dark cotton volles in shades of red. Black and White Used for This Chic Costume Black and white make this chic winter omtume, In velve and ohlf- fen with tiny beads of novelty fur. The sleeves are trimmsd with fur, whloh adds to the gown's sppsai. Navy Twill Has Red and Gold Embroidery Trlm This charming afternoon dress for winter wear Is of navy twill, trimmed with red .and gold embroidery. Its beauty Is further enhanced by the opular bell sleeves. Knickers Are Becoming a Part of Every Frock If the exception proves the rule, It was never more true than this season when, in spite of the general wave of femininity sweeping over the women's world, "la culotte," or kpickers in plain English, are becoming a part nf every frock. One hadgrown accustomed to knick- era for sports wear which every dress- maker has been showing for many years. But it remained for one to launch "la culotte," for afternoon and evening costumes, and very dainty and attractive they are, a far cry from the old-fashioned pantalettes of our good grandmothers. The knickers are always knee length with sometimes a ribbon bow at the knee and sometimes a narrow flnely-plalted frill of georgette or chif- fon. At times the frock is scalloped at the bottom, and as the wearer walks, one gets a glimpse of the little breeches, always the same color as the gown and often of the same ma- terial. A charming afternoon frock of chlf- fen has oval panels edged with black velvet, cut up on either side to show the full black silk knickers gathered into a band at the knee and fastened with rhinestone buckles. A black vel- vet dinner gown has a band of gold lace on the bodice and deep scallops on the bottom of the skirt and is worn with full knickers of black georgette trimmed with the same gold lace. charming model of apricot georgette is trimmed with silver embroidery and has full culottes of the same material. Premet makes no attempt to disguise the culotte even for street wear. A pair of very full gray ones which might almost pass for a divided skirt are worn with a long coat of gray woolen material with ascraf knotted at one side and large square pockets of moleskin. Many Details Baffle s Amateur Dressmakers Women who have found it a com- mratively simple matter to make their own frocks, or to fashion them with the aid of a clever little seam- stress, must view certain of the new models with trepidation. Simple as they appear at first glance, they are quite beyond the comforts of the am- ateur dressmaker. There is a tricki- ness of cut and a subtlety of detail only to be achieved by those who have served a long apprenticeship In the arts of the couturier. While the advent of more Intricate fashions may not be hailed with Joy in some quarters of the feminine worhl, nevertheless it brings about a relief from the monotony that for a tLme characterized clothes woh by the majority of wench. Of course, there always axe certain types of clothes that must necessarily con- form to familiar lines and not stray far off the beaten tracks, so far as details go. But generally speaking there Is not the. sameness about the new fashions that there has been and there is infinitely more individuality. Chinchilla Fur Popular The trend has turned from Siberia to South America so far as furs for formal evening wraps are coheerned. The beautiful white and gray of chin- chilla, which Is a South American re. dent, Is supplanting ermine, a rodent of the North. One of the most charm- Ing evening wraps seen recently Is of green velvet, lined with green and pink velvet and with a deep collar and border of chinchilla. Pink Frocks for Evening Evening dresses of pink chiffon or tulle are given a conspicuous position In every collection of new models. In almost every Instance the waistline Is defined by a belt or sash and the great- er width of the skirts Is accentuated by plaltluP and flounces. Palm Industry Chle? Sierra Leone Asset The principal industry in Sierra Leone Is the palm oil industry. Up to the present time It has been purely a domestic industry. The fruits are collected from the wild pahns and are taken to the villages, where the oil is prepared by boiling the fruits to re- move the oil from the fleshy perlcarp which surrounds the nuts. TSe nuts are then laid out to dry in the vil- lages, and when dry they are cracked one by .one to obtain the kernels, which are exported. The palm belts form the banking institutions of the native population. When they are in need of money to buy clothing or do- mestic utensils or to pay their hut tax, they go to the palm belts to col- lect the fruit In order to obtain ker- nels, which they take to the trading stores to convert into cash. Palm ker- nels form the backhone of l]]e trade of Sterra Leone. This country requires large quantities of palm oll for edible purposes and for Its soap-making In- dustries. i' I Stop Croup in 15 Minutes Croup usually comes suddenly--at midnightwithout warning.

Need for Scrub Team The freshman was watching his first football game. The field was muddy beyond the least trace of solidness and after a few downs the gridders were dripping wet. BefoPe long the frh- man commented to his neighbor: "Those fellows sure are muddY, aren't they " He received no answer, and so In a minute he ventured again: "Those guys certainly get muddy, don't they?"
