the housewife, but
if she will remem-
ber the words of
the popular song,
she can concoct
dainties, for "every
little bit added to
what you've got
makes just a little
hit more." Suppose, for instance, that
your larder displays nothing much but
the tag ends of a number of vege-
tables, both cooked and uncooked. Out
of these you can concoct a tempting
salad thai will serve as a dainty main
course for luncheon or supper. Cut
the carrots into strips, the string
beans—if large—Into inch lengths, the
onion iuto paper-thin slices, and the
potato into dice. Heap the peas, the
onion, the potatoes, and the lima
beans—If you have any, otherwise kid-
ney beans or diced beets in the cen-
ter of your salad dish, arrange them
in a circle, and add the mayonnaise

An equally attractive macedolne ol
vegetables consists of canned corn
drained- from the milk, diced boiled
turnips, and pickled cucumbers sur-
rounded by a "nest" of cabbage cold

Where you have not a great variety
of vegetables, you can make a sub-
stantial dish of it by adding iced cold
meats, chicken and veal being perhaps
the dainties for company, though "well
done" roast pork, beef or ham can be
used In the same way. The tart cu-
cumber or tomato may be combined
to good advantage with cold boiled po-
tatoes and the meat, and pickled beets
and asparagus are delicious with
chicken. Canned salmon is also very
much relished with peas, celery, let-
tuce and beets. Being such an oily
combination, it is perhaps better with
plain boiled dressing, or with vinegar,
6ult and pepper.
If you have a little cauliflower and
two or three onions left over, they
combine dellciously when boiled, cut
up together and served with a cream
To turn to desserts: If you want a
rqally lovely dish, open a can of free-
stone peaches, fill each cavity with
the shredded Hawaiian pineapple that
is now so plentiful in the markets,
add a sprinkling of chopped nuts and
Berve with whipped cream.
The "boarding house" prunes that
the family sneer at may also be dis-
guised into the form of a plum cake.
To make the batter, take two-thirds
of a cupful of butter, one cupful of
sugar, three eggs, two cupfuls of flour,
four tablespoonfuls of milk, a quarter
of a teaspoonful of soda, a heaping
cupful of prunes, two teaspoonfuls ol
allspice, 'two of cinnamon and one of
nutmeg. For this one tablespoonful
of baking powder will be required.
Our last recipe is far from being a
new one, but there may be some
young housewife who does not know
the very very best way to make this
queen of economy desserts, rice pud
ding: One-half of a cupful of rice,
one cupful of water, three cupfuls of
milk, two egss and three-eighths of a
cupful of sugar. Cook rice and water j
over the flame till the water is ab
sorbed. Add one pint of milk, and
cook over water till rice is tender.
Beat the eggs, and add them to one
cupful of milk; pour this into the rice
mixture, add sugar, and pour all into
a buttered dish. Set over a dish ol
hot water, and bake in a Blow oven
till custard is set. .

cured Mrs. Tooter, you have done

At this point some meddlesome Idiot

Locations of Promotion.
Elzena, aged four, reveled in kinder-
garten lore, and each day imparted to
her young mother the many interest-
ing things that the sweet-faced teach-
er had told them. Among the vicissi-
tudes of school life to be encountered
was that of vaccination, which was
new to the little one. After much ex-
plaining and reassuring this difficulty
was safely passed. A few weeks later
she returned one day from kindergar-
ten in a whirl of excitement, exclaim-
ing: "Mother, mother. I'm going to be
promoted—mother, will I be promoted
on my arm or leg?"
Oldest Man in the ^orld.
Jose Gaudaloupe Aleitd of Jalosti-
tlan, state of Jalisco, Mexico, is said
to be the oldest man in the world.
The record of his birth as contained
in the archives of the parish church
shows that he was born in 1770, which
makes him 139 years old. He is in
good physical condition.
Food Did It.
After using laxative and cathartic
medicines from childhood a case of
chronic and apparently incurable con-
stipation yielded to the scientific food,
Grape-Nuts, in a few days.
"From early childhood I suffered
with such terrible constipation that I
had to use laxatives continuously go-
ing from one drug to another and suf-
fering more or less all the time.
"A prominent physician whom I con-
sulted told me the muscles of the di-
gestive organs were partially par-
alyzed and could not perform their
work without help of some kind, so I
have tried at different times about
every laxative and cathartic known,
but found no help that was at all per-
manent. I had finally become discour-
aged and had given my case up as
hopeless when I began to use the pre-
digested food, Grape-Nuts.
"Although I had not expected this
food to help my trouble, to my great
surprise Grape-Nuts digested imme-
diately from the first and in a few
days I was convinced that this was
just what my system needed.
"The bowels performed their func-
tions regularly and I am now com-
pletely and permanently cured of this

The government ol
