Of question for the average schoolgirl but with a Little ingenuity on her part the old one May be kept a thing of Beauty. A serviceable Case was recently admired that had once been of Fine leather and though it looked worn and battered,1 the Case itself was still Strong and Good so its unsightly Ness was turned into Beauty by an easily arranged cover of embroidered Olive Cashmere and Moss Green Plush As seen in the illustration. The ends were decorated with silk cords tied in bows and similar cords held in place by Large buttons and decorated with Plush balls served As handles. A More elaborate cover May be made of Crochet work but in planning for this sort of cover it would be Best to have the knitting or Crochet work in Cylinder form so that the Roll will simply slip within it instead of attempting to form the Crochet work to fit the Roll and open at the Side. Or like the Crochet illustration the Center of the Case May be formed from cardboard or any other stiff a More elaborate cover. Foundation embroidered in some conventional design with ends of Crochet silk Cord and Plush balls May to used to finish this cover or a heavy Cord May be chained from the Zephyr to match the Crochet work and tassels May be made of the Zephyr in the same or in contrasting colors. Plain Linen covers May also be used says the Chicago Dally news and they will be even More durable than. Those illustrated. Linen cords and tassels should be used for decoration with some simple embroidery design in coloured working Cotton. The usefulness of the hedgehog.

With their big Newfoundland dog Rover lost no time in starting for the Sands the morning after their arrival at the Seaside.

And this was not the Only occasion during that Holiday in which Rover proved himself a Gallant rescuer. One Day a Little girl was playing on the rocks when she suddenly slipped and fell into deep water and the Brave dog almost before anyone had realized the Accident swam to the child s Rescue and brought her safely to Shore very Little Tho worse for her wetting.

There has been controversy concerning the authority of Blanche Walsh a play a the straight it was written by Clyde Fitch especially for miss Walsh but it has been suggested in Many quarters that Theodore Kremer had a hand in it.

Admirer of the Noble tree at Athens ga., insures it against ruthless destruction by Man. A land owning tree in a sense All Trees Are land owning Trees in that they possess the ground on which they stand but probably the Only tree in the world possessing a deed to itself is one of the interesting and historic relics of Athens a. This magnificent Oak stands in cob him the fashionable residential District of Athens and it is ranked above the common Trees of the world. It stands straighter and holds it head More proudly than the Trees around it seeming to realize that it is a property Holder and cannot be touched against its will that is if the conditions of the deed Are carried out. The tree is tall and symmetrical its great limbs Are shaped As if by the hands of an artist and under its Shade several generations have sheltered themselves from the heat of distorted playfully in frolic and amusement while lovers have found it an inviting spot to enjoy their Moonlight strolls. Recently George Foster Peabody a new York philanthropist erected a substantial Iron Chain Fence around the sturdy old Oak. He was familiar with its history and said that he hoped the provisions of the deed would never be violated. The records at the county courthouse show that in the Early part of the eighteenth Century col. W. H. Jackson a son of gov. James Jackson and father of chief Justice James Jackson of the Georgia supreme court owned the land upon which this tree stood. From his Early childhood col. Jackson had watched the tree grow and he grew to love it As much As he would a human being. Its juju Riant foliage had often protected him from the Sun and the rain and from its branches he had taken eggs from the nests of the feathered songsters. In manhood col. Jackson saw his favorite tree standing in its magnificent proportions and he was pained to think that after his death it might fall into the hands of those who might destroy it. Believing that the Only Way to save the tree from the a. Of the woodsman was to. Deed it to itself he sought Legal advice and ascertained that such a deed would be binding and would prove a safeguard against its destruction. Col. Jackson went to the courthouse and had Tho deed recorded in the Cleint s of Loco. It reads "1. W. H. Jackson of the county of Clarke of the first part and the Oak tree giving location of the second part witness eth Quot that the said w. H. Jackson for and in consideration of the great affection which he bears said tree and his great desire that said tree be protected for All time has conveyed and by these presents does hereby convey unto said Oak tree entire Possession of itself and All land within eight feet of it on All Athens was then a struggling Village and the Oak tree was nearly two Noble Oak which owns land on which it stands.

Tho land around the tree of tilde of the eight feet to which it holds title was sold to different parties but the wishes of col. Jackson As expressed in his deed were scrupulously respected. Unmolested in the Possession of its landed interests the old tree has stood for More than a Century and with the Best possible care taken of it by the City guardians and citizens it gives Promise to rounding out Many years yet.
