There are as many pages of cosmetics as there are of wire fencing, which i3 an old staple, and there are fancy holiday wrappings and sterling silver knives and forks. For a mail order catalog is an accurate reflection of the living habits of America. And America has changed. In the good old days, when these catalogs first served the people of this sprayling nation, country women paid little attention to fashion and had no time for such nonsense as cold cream and no patience with face powder. They were busy keeping their houses clean without the help of electricity . . . preparing.aTl the food that their families ate, including bread in a hot coal range. . . and making clothes for their children if not for themselves and their husbands. There wasn't time and often there wasn't enough money for beautiful things and amusing things. We hear again and again that the lot of women has been radically changed by modern industry these last few years. But there is nothing like looking through a mail order catalog to realize what some of these changes are. "Ring-fresilk stockings, chiffon or service weight." Imagine these in a mail order catalog in your grandmother's day! "Musical powder boxes." What nonsense! But what fun! Perfume and lipstick and fancy sweet smelling soap as wen as cleansing cream and face powder. Blue willow china and smart modem porcelains. Here is a wide range of good looking dishes to choose from. And linen damask and brightly patterned cloth will meet most any woman's taste. And look at the pages of kitchen cabinets! You won"t be able to get past these in a hurry or past the pictures and descriptions of modern sinks designed for houses where the water was pulled up f i om the well once upon a time. Has woman's lot been changed ? Has industry given her a break? Has she leisure and youth and freedom undreamed of even when her mother was young? Look through your newest mail order catalog and you'll find the answer. ji .. v. - '.," ... J . i yft A 1 if I Wi U in - : Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Norr, Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Jensen and Mr. and Mrs. A. R.

Farm Debts Decline, Repayments Increase In Western States The amount of debt secured by liens on farm real estate in the United States is estimated at $6,910,000,-00- 0 the smallest amount outstanding at any time since 1919. This figure is about 64 per cent of the peak amount of $10,786,000,000 outstanding on January 1, 1923. The total debt for Utah is $45,635,000, a decrease of .6 per cent from the 1939 total. The total debt for the mountain states now stands at 437,624, a 1.9 per cent decrease from other 1939 figure. Although foreclosures and other forced sales have continued as a debt reducing factor, the volume of sucn transfers declined further during 1939. The Federal Land Banks and Land Bank Commissioner were the only lender group showing an increase In foreclosures, but the volume of new loans closed by these institutions was more than sufficient to offset the reduction resulting from this situation. Among the factors contributing to the further decline in debt, principal repayment continues to be of increas ing importance. In the case of the Federal Land Banks and Land Bank Commissioner, which accounted for a large part of the reduction in total debt, repayments were particularly large as compared with earlier years. The chief circumstances which make for an increase in debt is the transfer of farm real estate, incurring mortgages. farm-mortga- ge FIELDING By Enid Welling I quite 111.
