THE SOT'S SERMON
By Berton Braley.
Take it from me, there ain't no good in booze.
, I've been against it-long enbugh to know.
You guys that still have strength enough to choose,
Take water straight. an' let the red-eye go.
This game of life's a hard one, ain't it, bo?
! It's one long fight from start to finish, see!
If you fight booze, that means a lot more woe,
Take4t from me! ,
Booze never boosts it knocks; it makes you lose
Yer self respect, it makes yer thoughts come slow,
It gets yer nerve, it muddles up yer views;
I've been against it long enough to know.
The fun it brings is mighty quick to blow,
The woe it brings ain't never goin' to flee;
You guys 'that still have strength enough to choose,
Take water staright ! an' let the red-eye go.
It's booze that put me in the place I be,
Take it from me!
SIMPLE SALAD DRESSING
Salads are easy to make if the
dressing is ready. Here is a sim
ple dressing which may be made
in two or three quarts at a time
apd kept in jars ready for use.
Five tablespoons pastry flour, 2
tablespoons butter, lz table
spoons mustard, 3 eggs, 1 table
spoon salt, 2 cups milk, 2 table
spoons sqgar, 1 cups weak vin
egar, 1 teaspoon onion juice.
These are the right proportions
for a quart of this inexpensive
Mix together flour, mustard,
salt, onion, sugar, onion juice,
butter and eggs in double boiler
top j add milk slowly so it will not
be lumpy ; cook over hot water till
thick, stirring constantly, then
add vinegar, stirring until thick
ened again. Cool and serve.
When you sit do you lean for
ward as though your waist were '
Do you "flop down" in a soft
sort of meaningless cramped heap
when you stop to speak to a -person
on the street or when you slip
into a chair to rest?
- Do you walk with your shoul-'
ders back and your head in its
proper place or dD they droop '
miserably as if you had lost every
vestige of energy and your last
friend, too. ,
The muscles of the body are'
wonderfully pliable and seem al'
most anxious to folldw your bid
ding. Give them a chance to make
you proud of -yourself."
A little practice will do it.
