THE DELICIOUS GUM80 SOUP
Either Canned or Dried Okra May Be
Used—Directions for Ita
The canned okra can be used for
this, or dried okra soaked over night,
either making an excellent soup. Slice
three red onions fine and fry brown
In a tabiespoonful of butter; add to
this one-quarter of a pound of ham cut
In dice and fry one minute; one-half
a cup of washed rice, one can of to-
matoes and the okra. and a cupful of
beef stock, with a teaepoonful of salt
and one-half a saltspoonful of cay*
enne. Cover and stew very slowly for
not less than four hours. It must be
stirred often, to prevent burning, aa
okra Is very atlcky. This makes a
very thick soup. If preferred thinner,
add more broth, but in the south it
Is eaten thick. To this gumbo oy-
aters are often added and put into a
pan with a spoonful of melted butter
till very slightly browned.
Turn the wooden chopping bowl up-
aide down when not in use and it will

ing may be made usable by covering
a few moments with boiling water.
To remove paint from linens rub
with turpentine, then clean with
French chalk dampened with alcohol.
Stains may be removed from tin-
ware by scouring with common soda,
then washing thoroughly and drying.

It will stand washing. This method ia
suitable for articles of every day use,
not for valuable old china.
To clean and tighten c«ne chair
seats turn the chair upside down, and
with hot water sponge the cane work
till it is thoroughly soaked. If the
cane be dirty use a little soap. Let
dry in the air or before a fire, and if
the can be merely stretched—not
worn—it will then be aa good aa new.
White lead makes a capital cement
for broken crockery. Paint it along the
broken edges, then press the pieces
together and tie them In place. Leave
the mended article to dry for two 01
three days and when thoroughly dry
It will be as strong as ever, though
perhaps not so ornamental.

Boil one-half pint of beans, email
white ones, in a pint of water with
one-half teaspoonful of soda for five
minutes, pour off the water and put
through cold water till.the skins come

beans until tender, strain off the wa-

Put into a saucepan two cupfuls
brown sugar and one-half cupful of
milk. Cool gently until a little dropped
into cold water will form a soft ball
when rubbed between the fingers. It
will take ten minutes or less to reach
this stage. As it scorches easily, it
must be stirred constantly while boil
lng. Add a heaping tabiespoonful of
butter and as soon as melted remove
from the fire and beat steadily until
the mixture looks creamy and slightly
granulated. Stir in at once one
pound of English walnuts, broken in-
to small pieces, beat hard and turn

Does human health depend on one
organ alone? This question Is becom-
ing widely discussed since L. T. Coop-
er first advanced hla theory that the
atomach la the true aeat of life and all
health dependent upon It
Mr. Cooper, who haa met with re-
markable success In the sale of hla
new medicine, believes that the stom-
ach Is responsible for most sickness,
and that thia organ, la weak In the
present generation. While die cussing
this theory recently, he aaid: "I am
aaked time and again to tell why my
medicine has made such a record
wherever I have Introduced it My an-
swer alwaya Is, 'because It restores the
atomach to a normal condition/ No
one will deny that today there are,,
more half-sick men and women than
ever before. Nothing critical seems
to be the matter with them. They
are Just half-sick most of the time.
They don't know really what la the
matter with them. I have talked with
thousands during the paat two yeara,
and few knew Indeed what their trou-
ble was. On* said nervousness, another
•aid kidney trouble, another liver com-
plaint, some constipation, or heart
trouble, or lung trouble. Many had
treated, aa they called it, for moat of
these diseases at different tlmea. A
very common complaint la 'all run
down,' or 'tired all the time/ or 'no
"I know positively that every bit of
this chronic 111 health la cauaed by
stomach trouble and nothing else.
My New Discovery puts the stomach
in sound condition In about alx weeka.
Mighty few people can be alck with a
sound digestion. That la why my medi-
cine la telling at auch a tremendous
rate. I Kate convinced many thou-
sands of people that theae things are
so, and the number la growing by
leapa and bounds."
Among more recent converts to Mr.
Cooper's beliefs la Mra. Lottie L.
Miner, living on Rural Route No. 2,
Hennlker, N. H.. who saya: "I was in
poor health for six yeara, from atom*-
ach trouble and lndlgeatlon. Quite
frequently my atomach waa so weak
that It would not retain aolld food. I
had vomiting apella every morning, and
was auhject to frequent attacka of dls-
zineas. Life became auch a burden
that 1 often felt it was not worth the
living. I tried everything I could hear
of, hut found nothing that would af-
"For some time I had been reading
of the Cooper remedlea, and finally de-
cided to give the New Discovery
preparation a trial. After taking the
first bottle, I noticed a marked Im-
provement Five bottles made me en-
tirely well. I can eat anything I wish,
and have not been troubled with my
atomach since. The dlxiy apella die-
appeared long ago.
"My mother, Mrs. Susan Parklna,
Is a nurse of long experience. Both she
and my father have used the Cooper
remedies with splendid results. I will
be glad to answer any personal corre-
spondence In regard to my case."

With a better understanding of the transient nature of the many physi-
cal ills which vanish before proper efforts—gentle efforts—pleasant
efforts—rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge that so many
forms of illness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a consti-
pated condition of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup
of Figs and Elixir of Senna, promptly removes. That is why It is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is sverywhere esteemed so highly
by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the
fact that it is the only remedy which promotes internal cleanliness,
without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is, thsrefore, all-im-
portant in order to get its beneficial effects, to purchase and note that
