many articles good for human food
and wholesome food at that, which un

the grasshopper and fully a score of
plants not ordinarily used as food
which, properly prepared, constitute
nourishing foods. It is perhaps only
tho most desperate and resolute sort
of appetite that would stand for the
earth worm, but they have been eaten
even by highly civilized people and
when properly prepared are said to ba
not eo bad. Why should we be squeam

As to grasshoppers they were an an

Ever Hit- Thumb With a Hammer?
Here is a little device which you can
make ht home by which the tiniest
tack can bb held without possibility ot
injury to the fingers. Take a strip of j
tia about three-quarters of an inch
wide and about six or seven inches
long. Shape it with a email Blot iu one
end. Then double it, bending at the mid
dle. When ready to insert the nail, pat
it Into tbe slot, which will hold it by
its head. This gives a kind of handle by
means of which you can hold the nail
perfectly upright while you blt lt witb
the hammer. Of course the holder
must be pulled away before the nail
or tack has gone all the way into tho
wood. If you have not tho tin at
hand drong cardboard will serve the
purpose. Try.this little device just
once and I am sure you will feel amply
repaid for your trouble in making it,
ss it will prevent many a bruised
finger.-Woman's Home Companion.
A Short Memory.
Uncle Jed was a trifle slack about
quitting the bottom when the levee
broke, and had to take to a tree. Morn
ing came, and there was sixty feet of
Mississippi flood water between bim
and shore. The preacher happened
along on the high ground and saw Jed,
but thero wasn't any boat. Moreover,
Jed's suspicion that there were alli
gators about was well founded.
Tbe preacher besought Jed to swim,
but in vain. Finally ho called out:
"Jed, have faith.. Remember how
Jonah was cared for in the whola and
saved after three days."
Jed spoke earnestly.
"Tss, sub, 1 remember. I oin' deny

Those angelic-looking little boys,

had no nickname.
"I spoke to the teacher about lt," ho
vouchsafed, his big eyes opened wide,
a mournful look about hts angelia
mouth. "I told her some nicknames
that I'd like."
"And what were the names?" in
