When Mary Ljon started out to raise

College, she vat full of enthusiasm, but
the idea of a college for women was not
over popular and the dollars were not
easily lured from skeptical pockets.
She collected the money in sums rang
ing all the ay from 6 cents to Jl.OuC, and
persuaded l.Sno persons to subscribe. When
it was all over she had learned a lot more
about the Ins and outs of human nature
than she had ever guessed before, and
had gained some Interesting experience
One evening, so the story Is told, she

so sure of success that the squire's wlfo
thought It a kindness to prepare her.
As they were about to start on that early
ride, the hostrs softly laid her hand on
J- Lvons .shoulder, with the warning:

sure that they would be liberal, indeed.
Well, they went, and they rode back
Hut there was not the same Iwimlmr

to her friend and whispered in her ear
that It was all ery true. Just as she had
been told Those folk lived in a costlj
home, which was tilled with costl
things, the wore costly clothes and the
most exquisite Jewels, but and she drew
a little closer aa she said it, whispered
still more softly
Oh. they are little bits of folk."
And that was all she said, but for
ever after she prajed for deliverance
from their kind.
It Is a very foolish story to have
drifted down the years, but somehow
as one reads It, one thinks of other
"little blu of folks," some of whom are
rich, and some of whom are not.
But particularly she thinks of folk with
plenty of money, who spend It royally
upon themselves, who live In splendid
houses, who go where they like, and do
what they like with fine disregard of
the cost, yet who are known, right and
left, as "little bits of folks." So little
they are and so well it Is known that the
whole communities where they live
know in advance Just what their action
The squire and his friends, the
squire's friends and their wives and
the whole of the little community
knew what to expect of that family
when it was asked to step out of itself
and show that it looked upon money
and the things It can do in a big.
broad sort of way. But one wonders
what might have happened on that
morning so long ago if those folk had
guessed the warning that had been
given and had dreamed that they were
known as "little bits of folks." Ter
haps it might have made a difference,
because there are not so many people
who are willing to be recognized as
dwarfed in mind and sour in heart.
When one stops to think about it, it
may be Just a bit dismajlng to realize
that families and Individuals proba-blj-

It is not always a question of moncj,
the big or the small subscription at

come up from day to day count for

For it is possible to play a small

matter to keep it clean. It neod never

In lighting the oven the torch or

not for heat Another precaution which
certain housekeepers have been known
to neglect, is never to leave the broil

use It becomes roughened and burned
if left In the heat when emptv. One lit
tle habit of lll-reguiated gas burners
is their "popping' when lighted. This
is the result of an oversuppl of air
and can be regulated by turning the
"mlxr" the open-cap-shaped arrange
ment close to each handle After seven
or eight ears' use the oven may need
a row lining. It is economy to have
it put in as soon as it is needed.
With proper planning a gas range
can be used very cheaply and that
without deprivation in any line of
cooking. Some appliances which make
this possible Is the steam cooker which
cooks many dishes over one burner,
and the section saucepans in groups of
two or three, which can also be used
ovtr one burner. Many housekeepers
have found a one-burner oven, which

For most families it is worth while
to have shectlron baking sheets made

THE CONVENIENCE OF
A KITCHEN CABINET
Pastry Table May Be Made to Scire
as Foundation for Home
Probably no truly domestic woman
ever passes a kitchen cabinet, so per
fiit in its arrangements and so com
plete In details, without wishing she
owned one, but the Initial cost is, in
most cases, prohibitive and she must do
Doing without the patented cabinet,
however, does not mean that a woman
need do without the convenience, for
with a little Ingenuity and work, and
slight expenses she may achieve at home
the same results. An ordinal-' kitchen
table, but. better yet. a pastry table with
flour bins, drawer, and kneading board,
serves as the foundation.
Shelf for Canister..
If the ordinary table is used a shelf
set under the top, about a foot from
the floor, will serve admirably to hold
two large flour canisters, one for white
and one for graham or entire wheat
flour. In smaller canisters may be kept
lornmeal and sugar, and there will be
room also for the bread box. A series
of shallow shelves built above the table,
against the wall, will hold any number
of glass Jars for dry groceries, spices.
&c, and one may now purchase for 10
cents apiece glass Jars with aluminum
covers, which will hold a week's sup-plj-
of sugar or cereal.
As many of these as can be afforded
and as are required should be purchased
and rind their place on the lower shelf.
Above these may be placed smaller Jars
for raisins, spices, Ac. and all the In
gredients needed for baking. The other
shelves may hold mixing bowls, cups.
and the like, and at the sides of the
shelves should be screwed brass hooks
to hold egg beater, can opener, mixing
spoon, and so forth.
voTfr Top trim '.inc. j
If the table top Is covered with zinc.
the cabinet will now be complete and
ready for use, and will leave no long
ings for a more elaborate one. If one
docs not care to purchase the glass Jars,
fruit Jars and Jelly glasses may be used
to hold the groceries. The little glass
Jars In which stick candy Is sold, those
for patent medicines, and many similar
purposes, may ail be utilized, as they
accumulate In the house and serve the
purpose admirably. The whole thing may
be gotten up In an expensive or an In
expensive manner, all depending upon the
resources and ingenuity of the woman
who has charge of the work.

a gift to a friend about to travel is a box
of small sachets containing preparations
