DON'T FORGET POOR AND NEEDY
Let us tell you how to pack a
basket for a poor family you know.
This is a half-bushel basket from
the corner grocery. First are pota
toes and then apples; these are sup
posed to be staples of the Thanksgiv
ing basket In paper bags saved
from time to time, place white beans
and butternuts; add some jelly and
ketchup, with a jar of fruit and one
jof pickles from the cellar. If there
are children in the family for whom
the basket is intended, put in a bag
Then, with a bunch of celery, a
chicken (or turkey) and a pie with a
bag of home made cookies, the send
er may be sure she has made happy
someone that perhaps would have
gone hungry this Thanksgiving.
THE TALE OF THE FLY
"What becomes of the flies in win
ter? Do they die or go to another
country? M. L.
Most of the flies go to the "happy
hunting grounds" as soon as Jack
Frost nips the flowers and puts a
sting in the air. A fly's life- is an af
fair of a spring and a summer. A
few hardy ones survive the cold, but
they are not very spry when spring
But if the flies die in winter that
doesn't mean there will be no flies
tq swaj next summer Mrs, Fly will
take care of that, she has been busy
laying eggs all summer, and there
are millions and millions of fly eggs
lying about the ground, or in the
trees or the stables, and the first
warm days of spring will start the
chrysalis or baby fly growing and
very soon a full fledged fly bursts out
ready to defy an army of swatters.
ISNT SHE THE CAT?
