Rids Town of Worst Bootlegger
Mrs. Parriet Polk, mayor of Nlches-
? ter, Ill., has succeeded in ridding the
town of its worst bootlegger by get-
ting az indictment against him, and
also in getting rid of one of the town's
prominent officials who was drunk all
the time. "The young girls are all in
I off the street by curfew now, too," she
says. Mrs. Polk, who is a small, gray-
baired woman with two children of
her own, says that "You might call be-
ing mayor housekeeping on a large
scale, but it's nothing like the cinch
that housekeeping is." She admitted
that she is pot so sure but that being
mayor is a man's job after all. Fifty
years from now she hopes that her
children's children will be telling, not.

Slave Girls B .nned by Police
San Francisco Dec. 6.-(By A.P.)-
In San Franciso's Chinatown the tail-
ors used to thrive by making dainty
clothes for Chinese slave girls. But
now, the police report, this trade has
diminished to the point that the Chi-?
nese tailors are appealing to the Y. W.
C. A. secretaries to put them in touch
with American families wanting cloth-
The reason for this is said to be that
most of the slave girls have been sent
away by their owners, largely to small
towns. The change in policy is at-
tributed to the activities of Christian
missionaries and the police in curbing
some of the practices of the tongs.

Demure, vivacious, sedate-these are the characters of women. One loves
this; another likes that. One knows what she wants; another doesn't care.
And so it is a bit of a task for a woman to choose for her woman friends.
But it will be a thoroughly delightful one if she does her shopping here at the
