NEW MILITARY CAPE-COAT HAS
The military coat of navy blue with
Bhort scarlet lined cape is no longer
a novelty, but even so it's losing none
of its popularity.
As a coat for general use the
broadcloth "soldier cloak" is un
equaled it's heavy enough to make
a comfortable storm coat, and it's
handsome enough to be worn on
formal occasions over an afternoon
Why is it that water which seems
to come from the ground really comes
from the sky?
This will not be so hard to under
stand if we watch a dry spring after
a heavy rain shower. It will be no
ticed that some of the rain fills the
spring and what isn't caught in
springs and streams and lakes soaks
into the ground.
But it doesn't stay in the ground,
it comes to the surface again in pools
and bubbling springs, and the water
from the springs runs on through the
rivers and lakes to the sea, where
the sun sucks it up and after awhile
ft comes pouring down again in rain

SAVE THE BOTTLES
Never throw away large bottles as
they are very handy in canning time.
Last year one woman canned
quarts and quarts of tomato juice in
large bottles, and she says it was
much easier to use the bottles than
jars, as a cork and a little sealing
wax quickly closed the opening.
She put large stone jars filled with
ripe tomatoes on the back of the
stove to simmer until tender. Then
then were pressed through a sieve
and returned to the stove to boil
down to the consistency of thin cat
sup. One large red pepper to two
gallon of juice, the pepper being thin
ly shredded, was added and the juice
bottled. It was used later for soups,
sauces, catsup, baked beans and for
cooking with macaroni.
She also uses the large bottles for
grape juice and other fruit juices.
