May its paths be smooth, may its skies
And this my wish, God bless you. dears!
And grant you many glad New Years!
YOU will never know, puzzlers, how
much you helped to make
my Christmas season a Joyous
one. While I had faith
in the members of my puzzle circle,
Z had no Idea they would have, or
take the time, to send in solutions this
week, and, especially since there was
not a reward. I am convinced now that
there are no mercenary puzzlers in the
family. The solutions were done quite
as beautifully as usual, and a message
with the season's greetings for me ac
companied all, for which I take this
opportunity of thanking you.
Mrs. J. M. J. O'Connell, the author of
the Magazine puzzle, should feel com
plimented that her delightful piece of
work proved so attractive to the puz
lers. While It was not a hard puzzle,
it was a puzling puzzle, for in several
numbers the .names of more than one
magazine suggested itself, as in the
cast of No. 7, which brought in for
the answer, The Delineator in several
Instances, when, according to Mrs.
O'Connell, it should have been the De
signer. Of course, this naturally would
happen as the two magazines are simi
lar in many ways.
Willie there was not an entirely cor
rect list, the one sent in by Miss Al
marie K. Everett was nearest. Her list
did not agree with Mrs. O'Connell's In
two places. Mrs. Goldsborough's list
had three ciror.s and there was a num

To Use on Street

Parisian fashionables at the opera and
theater Is adapted to street use by
wearing It under the picture hat. Being
of gold or elUer or of soft cream lace,
with perhaps a silk rosebud or two en
twined, it falls over the hair like a
pretty frill: In fact, h cave -se to the
fad of. wearing these frills s. ed under

a voice from somewhere overhead.
Looking up ho beheld the great golden
sun speaking to him. "Little bush,"
he sold, "you have been a very care
less and bad bush. Now let me see if,
with very hard trying, you cannot re
gain those pretty lost blossoms. I will
do all I can to help you," he added, and
he baade him good-bye because he had
work to do behind a big white fluffy
cloud that was just passing over the
It was right here that the little bush

EAT PLENTY OF PINEAPPLE
By MARTHA HOUNCE r
YOUR physician will tell you
to eat plenty of fruit in
season and out of season.
HeNwill tell you, also, that pineap
ple is the most beneficial of all
fruits-r-due to its acid properties.
But you want ripe pineapples
the kind that have ripened on the
bush. You cannot get them in the
market. Those undersized apples -were
necessarily picked green.
They haven't the full pineapple
flavor nor are their acid properties
developed to a beneficial stage.
There's a California packing,

To obtain tho most benefit from tho
succulent fruits they should be eaten
at the end of the chief meal. Bananas
are an exception and may be eaten with
any meal. They are very acceptable cut
in thin slices and eaten with bread and
butter. Stewed fruits often have their
virtues wasted through being eaten at
the wrong time. Six or eight stewed
prunes half an hour before breakfast
are beneficial; so are stewed figs or
