(By Louise Bromneld)
(Published by Fredrick A.
Stokes, New York).
“Early Autumn” presumably
derives its title from the fact
that its subject is the portrayal
of the life and emotions of a
woman on the verge of middle age.
The heroine, Olivia Pentland, (nee
McConnell) a handsome attrac
tive woman, nearing forty, is mar
ried unhappidly to the bloodless
Anson Jentland a caricature of the
most pronounced and unattractive
phase of Puritanism. Her un
happiness, all but unconscious to
herself, she has endured for years,
until the return of her cousin,
Sabine Callender, from a more
attractive life abroad rouses in
the hitherto quiescent Olivia, de
sires that her New England en
vironment had previously suc
ceeded in suppressing. Gradually,
without realizing it, through the
manipulation of the brilliant but
not too scrupulous Sabine, Olivia
is thrown with a local politician,
a self-made man, with all the un-
scruplousness of one who lets
nothing stand in the way of what
he wants; and the usual denou-
ment follows: the two find them
selves confronted with the di
lemma of having to choose be
tween separation and a liason,
since the timorous Anson refuses
to permit a divorce on account
of his horror of a family scandal.
The discovery by Olivia of a
bundle of letters in the attic,
written by an indiscreet ances
tress of the proud Pentlands,
gives her a weapon which she
might easily use to gain her
freedom; but this she hesitates to
do mainly on account of her ad
ministration and affection for her
father-in-law, with his uncom
promising standards of integrity
and noblesse oblige. A pre
arranged encounter with a po
litical adherent of her lovei
brings home to Olivia the
fact that any entanglement
with a woman would mean his
political ruin and his subsequent
disillusionment and distaste for
the woman who had been its

Chicago attacks one big prob
lem in a big way, building the
“largest, best jail in the world”.
The cost, with a court house in
front to help fill the jail, will be
seven and a half millions. Rooms
for fourteen criminal courts will
be built with high ceilings, and
back of the court the big jail for
the modern crime army.

BIG BUSINESS IS BIG.
DON’T PUSH LABOR.
BIGGEST JAIL IN WORLD.
It has been suggested here oc
casionally during several years
past that a solution of the flying
problem would eventually include
wireless transmission of power.
What men can imagine, they can
do when imaginations run on
Electric waves are power and
can be sent without wires. It is
not too much to hope that power
generated at one place on the
earth will be sent without wires to
another place, or sent to ma
chines flying in the air.
In view of jail breaking and
the unusual energy of criminals,
wouldn’t it be a good idea to let
jailers wear gas masks, and install
in corridors and in the main office
valves that, when opened, would
flood the jail with some convinc
ing gas of the mustard type?
Nothing to kill or permanently in
jure the convicts, of course, but
strong enough to take their minds
off any jail breaking plan.

SHE TEACHES SNAKES
Any school library in West
Virginia possessing 50 or more
volumes may be kept open during
summer vacation for at least one
day a week, if desired, in order
to supply reading matter to stud

law, boards of education are
authorized to provide a librarian
to meet this local need.

County, Ky., is a snake catcher by
vocation and she makes a good

Reports from our big business

doubting Thomases ask, “What do
you think of the business out

ies answer the question.
In the first nine months of this
year General Motors earned more
than $149,000,000, and the big
United States Steel Company
more than $145,000,000.
It is interesting to see one of
the automobile organizations mak
ing bigger profits than United
States Steel, biggest industrial or
ganization in the world.
In nine months United States
Steel earned more than $13 a
share on five hundred millions of
common stock. That was once
called “thin air”, it wasn’t even
“water”. Now, with earnings
“put back” it represents no one
knows h(^' much real wealth.

‘DAY SLEEPERS” ON PLANES
Due to the ceaseless drone of
the motors and the fact that at
such height the landscape moves
slowly, passengers on airplanes in
Europe find they are easily lulled

it necessary for the plane opera

chairs with high backs for the com
fort of their passengers especial

An artifical silk made from wood
is being produced in greater
quantity now than that of the silk

alone exceeded the production of
real silk by all the silk worms.
