My girl was talking as much at six
months as the average child is at two.
It was because I talked so much to
her. And I always used the best Eng
lish at my command.
I believe with Herbert Spencer that
if a babe is taughtrbyits parents to
use good English in the cradle it will
continue to speak correctly to the
grave, without having to worry much
about the rules of grammar.
Don's say "Oo" for "You," "chu
hu" for "train," and so on.
And now a word about putting kid
dies to sleep:
Unless you are blessed with a sing
ing voice don't attempt lullabies, so
called, because the discords and
screeching may keep your babe
awake in place of putting him to
sleep. By all means sing if you have
a voice. If not, I would suggest you
had better recite poetry or nursery
rhymes, as I did to Winifred.
I scanned Virgil to her as a lullaby.
I remembered how in school I always
gotdrowBy when my teacher chanted
Virgil, so I turned him to account as
a sleep-producer, and found him ex
cellent for the purpose.
In fact the result was two-fold for
Winifred could scan Virgil freely at
an early age.
Remember: Don't let your baby
cry, and talk to it a great deal.

These dainties may be made from
a very small amount of any cold
roast fowl. Many a fancy "Boudin
of Game" has been made from the re
mains of a "roasted tame duck."
Chop small bits of any cold cooked
poultry very fine. To each pint of
the chopped meat add 1 even tea
spoon of salt, dash of cayenne and 2
tablespoons of minced parsley. Put
into stew pan 1 cup of stock or milk,
add 1 tablespoonful of butter and 2
tablespoons of stale bread crumbs.
Stir until boiling, then add the chop
ped meat, then take from the fire and
add 2 well beaten eggs. Fill small
well greased moulds and stand these
in a pan of hot water and set pan in
oven for 12 minutes. Serve with
rich cream sauce and small squares
of currant jelly.
FABRICS FOR FALL FROCKS
Loveliest of many new fabrics
brought forth this fall is the suede
cloth, a velvety material as soft as
chamois and lends itself admirably
to the panniered drapes now so pop
ular. Velour de lain, woven entirely of
wool with no silk threads to make it
perishable, is another material noted
in many of the new gowns.
A fabric often seen in the new
blouses is a combination of metal
cloth and ribbon in stripes.
Most startling of all the new fab
rics is the imitation fur used mostly
for coats and wraps. Its price runs
up to the exciting figure of $15 yard.
Remember many a morning head
ache and lassitude results from poor
ly ventilated sleeping apartments.
Open the windows and breathe fresh
air while sleeping.
