And while she waits patiently in
her prison cell for the call of the
court, she stitches dertly, diligently
on the garments for the tiny victim
of the tragedy.
And this is why the prison rules
have been broken to make happier
the life of the mother of an unborn
The gruffness of prison officials has
mellowed and everybody does his
share to cheer this girl of 23.
"Think happy thoughts, be cheer
ful." That is the constant admoni
tion of the jail attaches. "Do it for
the sake of the child."
"I know I ought and I want to,"
she replies. "I want him to be happy,
but but they say I'm a murderess."
And then came the tears.
Mrs. Hagan was living apart from
her husband when she met Putman.
He wooed impulsively but tired of her
in time. Mrs. Hagan came from San
Jose, Cal., to San Francisco, to ask
Putman to help her. When he refus

CEREALS AND FRUIT FINE FOR
Cereals make a good balanced food
when combined with milk, the richer
the better. Nearly every child likes
sugar. It is not to be forbidden, nor
too closely limited, But it must not
be substituted for fat.
As the chfld grows older they will
be more and more staple articles of
his diet. But remember' that they
cost far more than milk even at ten
cents a quart.
Fruit must not be forgotten. Its
chief nutritive value is in the small
amounts of sugar which it contains.
To make this available the fruit must
be ripe and some kinds must be cook
ed. More important is the stimula
tion which fruit gives to the child's
appetite. A meal made up entirely
of fruit is unsuitable and foolish.
MILITARY TOUCH OF THE NEW
A jaunty little hat for late summer
wear is made of white satin with a
band of soft white feathers lying flat
against the crown.
The hat is brimless, and though it
is as severe in outline as a soldier's
helmet, the band of feathers softens
it, and a long, spearlike aigret adds
to Its prettiness and also gives it the
military touch so fashionable in these
days of world-wars.
