Hoor—a varnish that fulfills every demand—
We guarantee it to be the best floor varnish made. It

Mistake I* Too Much a General On*
In Neglecting the Present for
th« Future.
Premium 1)1.v every young man
knows, as m physical fact. that he ran

j In aouie decree, do today. He will not
grow wing* or overcome the law of
gravitation or aobatst without food.'
Bui ho la always prefiguring a future
In which his nilnd will operate differ-
ently. Th«> tim will certainly eomal
when he realizes thai Ihere la no fu-
ture. but only an Indxflnlt* extonaloa
of today. The important question l
whether thai Llm«t will eon* early
enough Id llf« to do him soy particu-
lar good. 1
A laay man cannot posMbiy make
himself Industrious in the future; or
a tippling man, sober: or an extrava-
gant man. economical. 1/ It l« dose
at all h« must do tt at an immediate
present moment — at some "right now !"i
Mo man v«r saved a penny la the
ture, or ever will. He has not to savft
the pminy lu Ills hand at the moment
or he will h«> broke to the day of Ills
death, the Saturday Evening Post in-
sists. That is clear enough to any-
body who wtll think about It. To save]
the penny In hand he must resist the!
temptation to spend It. Imagining
himself next year as resisting the
temptation to spend a handful of pen-
nies will <|o hint the same good that
the drunkard gels oul of Imagining
himself reformed next year. Hveryj
year that be does not resist weakens
his ability to resist
This spending business Is as much,
a matter of habit as tippling. It Is]
wlthlu the knowledge of everybody
who has the ordinary circle of per-
sonal acquaintances that, after a cer-
tain time, the man who lives up to:
the limit of his Income—which, abontf
nine times out of ten. racHns a little
Oeyond—accepts that as n normal con-
dition and .lust automallcallv spend*
whatever he gets.
At twenty a man lives largely in an.
Imaginary future. At thirty he seems
still to have fairly Incalculable pow-
ers and opportunities to draw upon.
At forty he begins to realize what he
fully knows, probably, at forty-flve—
namely, that he has already spent Ills
future, in the sense that lie 1ms large-
ly shaped and fixed it ; so that it will
contain nothing essentially different
from what he himself tias already put
Into It.
It1 he can realize hy thirty that he
js spending his future every day it will
be a good thing for him.

Cooking by Instinct.
In the kitchen of an old monastery
In France a group of British women,
all of good education, are cooking and
scrubbing and washing up all day long,
i«nd they have been doing it for many,
months The way the.v cook potatoes
Is a thing to write poetry about, and
the French soldiers who have eaten
them will tell you that they want to
go back to that monastery, which is
now a hospital, because the food is so
good. Not only do those women cooks
of the educated classes cook well, but
they are economical.
Another English woman, who before
the war knew nothing about cooking.
Is a past mistress in the art of making
apple dumplings, as many an English
soldier, as well as a few English sail-
ors. will bear witness. When asked
how she learned, she said that a
French friend of hers had lent her her
cook for hours, and during that
time she had made rapid progress in
many things. Then there was the
handy man about the canteen, an Eng-
lishman, who had lived in France for
many years. He taught her a great
deal. But as to the tarts and the up-
, , . ... _ . , . LIABILITIES
pie dumplings, she must have learned
to make those by instinct, for no one I1,1
has taught her how to make the paste' '^Turjbind
or keep the apples dry.

though the women of the United King-
dom have invaded most employments
that formerly were followed chiefly
hy men, the shoemaking trade has uot
experienced much chnnge in this re-
spect. Yet. little over a hundred years
sgo. shoemaking was one of the "em-
ployments of high society" in London. '
Lady Sarah Spencer, in a letter to her :
brother, written about the year 1808, j
•ays: "In the evening we divide our (
tiuie between musie and shoemaking,
which is now the staple trade of tile
family. I am today in a state of grent
vanity, for 1 have made a pair of shoes
—there Is news for you. So if all oih-
er trades fail I shall certainly estab-
lish myself, cross-legged, ai the corner
of an alley to earn ■ livelihood in th*
Blast of leather, awls, and hammer*."
