THE BEDTIME STORY
Told for the Thoughtful Mothers Who Wish to Read to the little
Folks While They Are Being Tucked Into Bed.
THE MOUSE GETS A COOKY.
Punto. the spotted dog. came trotting
inio the held behind the barn. He held
in his mouth a fine bit of cooky which
the baby gave him.
As he ran he growled to himself. "I do
wish babies ate bones instead of cake.
I am tired of cookies. I will hide this
The wise old mouse was in the field Just
then seeing the grass grow. He heard
the dog and he thought the cooky would
be nice. So bo squeaked:
"Do you want a bone. Ponto?"
"Tes; have you got one?" barked the
dog. "I think the dog fairy lias one for
you," was the reply.
This pleased Ponto. Ho had never
heard of the dog fairy. He thought a
fairy bone must bo very sweet indeed.
Salmon croquettes make a welcome
fish variation for the Lcnten season. To
make them, take one pound of canned
salmon, pick all fine bone out. and pick
meat fine; add one egg, one tablcspoonful
of milk, the juice of one lemon, and one
cup of cracker oical. Make into small
halls and fry in butter a golden brown.
Serve with lettuce, a sprig of parsley,
sliced pickles, or tomato sauce.
Salt Mackerel in Cream.
Salt mackerel in cream Is an appetizing
Place the mackerel in enough fresh
water to cover it well with flesh side down
and soak at least twelve hours, changing
the water at least once. A little milk
added to the water is a very good plan.
Then lay in a baking pan, skin side
down, and to one mackerel add a pint of
new milk; put into the oven and bake
until the milk is nearly cooked away.
Aliout five minutes liefore it is dished
add a Mnall pie-c of butter.

Take one pound of cooked fish, white

NEW NEGLIGE IN SKIRT
AND COAT EFFECT
Instead of th" one-piece neglige held in
at the waist with a silk cord or ribbon
many women delight in the semi-fitting
coats or tunics to wear with a lovely
skirt of muslin or silk.
These coats and Fkirts are made of
the thinnest stuffs, many of the coats
having a sheer silk lining in white or
colors, while through others flesh tints
As a rule these coats reach to the
knees and often have deep slashes at
the sides, held together with ribbons or
cord. The sleeves are wide kimonos, com
ing not quite to the elbow.

The mouse squeaked to him to run

could open them and look for the bone.
Ponto at once dropped the cooky. He

And the cooky was gone! The wise old

Ponto was purzled. "I must have turned
around too many times." h,e snarled.

they arc thinking of the fairy bone.

Clarissa There are so many conflicting
theories as to what we should cat that
it Is hard to determine which is correct.
However, one tafe rule to follow is to
never cat the second time anything you
cannot digest. A great variety at one
meal is not wise, but a change of food
each day gives one a better relish for
their meals. Fruit should alwaj-3 be
eaten in the morning.
APE THEIR ELDERS
Children's fashions, as usual, follow
at a little distance those of their elders.
Thus, they wear narrow skirts, but not
so narrow as the adult styles, as child-

though the French babe frock still con
I'casant or Kimono sleeves snare favor
about equally with the regulation set-In
dress sleeves. Most of the peasant
sleeves come just to the elbow and have
fitted undcrslecves of white lawn or
batiste. Some of the sleeves are trimmed
to match the bodice of the dress.
Little girls' coats are cut exactly on
the lines of their mothers'. There are
the side fastening and the sailor collar,
while even the polo coat is shown in
Among the .best materals are serges,
homespuns, and striped and checked wor
steds. Black satin and pongee arc being
worn in Paris, but there taste may be
questioned for children. Wash coats
come In linen, pique and rep.
All "les pctltes Parislennes" are wear
ing lace collars, especially over dark or
bright colored coats. Little Tyrolean and
bell shaped hats are being worn, faced
in light-collared silk or chiffon. Bows of
ribbon or a few flowers form a finish
Iarge hats and sailors are not neglect

straw bonnets are being shown.

"Toil may carre it on hi Uwntfctone.

There is a very well-known business

His father, he says, would have been
a successful capitalist instead of a poor
man If he hadn't gone and hampered
himself by marrying.
fWhere he would have been under these
circumstances, this misogamist incident
ally neglects to say.
His favorite quotation is "He travels
fastest who travels alone."
Now If this great man were the only
man who felt and talked this way no
harm would be done
But. unfortunately, he is only a type
one of many. Kverywhere young busi

If I were a minister. I think I should
preach a sermon on that subject, with
that line for my anti-text "He travels
fastest who travels alone."
Perhaps he docs. I'm not so sure my
self, but' I won't try to dilute that now.
But stop a minute and think he may
travel fastest who travels alone, but how
much interest and amusement does he get
out of the Journey, compared with the
man who Is content to retard his head

Fast travel is the obsession of the twen

for the sake of getting anywhere quickly
and of saving time, but for Its own sake.
