It was a happy moment when he
went to the vault to" place the money
in the envelope. . It was gone! He
went to the bookkeeper, fearing
some new complication in the case.
"The Parr envelope?" he tried to

the indifferent explanation. "Had no

Worth had dashed from the room.
It seemed as if he must shout, laugh,
cry, pray. Oh, the relief of it! Oh,
the joy of it!
Out of it had come a grand sav
ing, for what he and Ada had put
aside would furnish the flat. Greater
than that, however, was the lesson it
had taught Bryce Worth never again
to graze the edge of deception and
Some ha' meat and cann' eat
And some would eat who ha' not
But we ha' meat and we can eat
So to the Lord be thankit'.

Let the children help you set the
Thanksgiving day dinner table. Even
if they are "only boys" give a chance
to learn something about housework
and they will have something to be
truly thankful for.
Give them access to the best linen,
company dishes and party silver. Do
not hamper them with "don't." Al
low them to display their ideas. The
centerpiece of fruit or vegetables will
surely be blended with autumn ber
ries and leaves, which they will
proudly bring home.
Teach them to make the decora
tions harmonize and blend with the
appointments of the dinner and give
them some leeway to exercise in
dividuality. Of course, certain "rules
must be adhered to, but the children
may add beauty and originality.
The silence cloth should be spread
absolutely smooth, and a wise host
ess arranges her own damask cloth,
for a crease or wrinkle once made is
hard to obliterate. After this is ar
ranged give the children full sway
(mother can be kept .busy in the
kitchen), and when the wonderful
meal is ready to be served, make it
g. pomt for one child to serve a
course. This may be done very suc
cessfully, even if there are no girls
in the family.
If the children are allowed to
serve each course have the dishes
on side table and have them try to
serve as easily and quietly as possible.
Napkins should be placed in front
of the plate, parallel with the edge of
the tabel. Knives and spoons should
be placed at right and forks at left.
In order of courses those to be first
used should be placed farthest from
the plate. Place goblet and butter
plate at right hand. If individual salts
are used they should be newly filled
and also placed at right hand. In
the folds of the napkin place a roll
or square of bread if soup is to be
served. If not, place the bread on
the butter plate.
An umbrella cover snould be given
a coat of varnish every spring and
Pretzels without any holes in them
are more nourishing than the ordin-,
Never throw away grandma's old
skull caps. Use them for finger
A mink coat makes a fine cover
for a typewriter.
Grape seeds scattered over hard
wood floors will prevent slipping.
