THE SCHOOL LUNCH.
In one neighborhood where the
packing of lunches has become such e
dally problem that
the mothers have
given it thought,
five mi o t h e r s
agreed to/ pack the
lunch for the live
one day a week.
This gave the
mothers the relief
' from the monotonous task and the
children a change of food. It
pleasant all around/ This is an idea
which might be used in many places
where children need to carry lunches.
Custards, when well baked, make a
most desirable food. With a sandwich
and a few nuts and an apple, this will
prove a most satisfying meal.
Paper napkius are so inexpensive
that one should keep a supply on hand
to use for lining the box or basket
and for napkins. Each sandwich?
pickle, egg or piece of cake should be
wrapped carefully. Brown bread, rye,
bran, cornmeal and baking powder
biscuits will furnish variety. A little
surprise to vary the usual is always
pleasing to a child. A piece of candy,
a fig or a date, hidden away in a cor
ner will always delight them.
Peanut butter ls enjoyed (when not
made too common) as sandwich fill
ing. There are so many kinds of salad
fillings that there need never be one
used too often to tire of lt.
Brown bread spread with butter and
weQ seasoned cottage cheese in which
a blt of onion juice is placed for sea
soning, and a tablespoonful of chopped
nuts is another good filling.
Candy, of course, is always liked by
the little people, but should be used
sparingly. A piece of candy eaten
after each meal will not be undesir
able, but a fig or date will satisfy the
sweet tooth and be much more whole
Dates, nuts and a little cream mixed
together, the ingredients chopped fine
before adding the cream, makes a
most dainty sandwich.
Fruit should never be omitted from
the lunch, as it is one of the foods in
dispensable to a well-balanced lunch.
The dainty, careful packing of a lunch
ls a most important means of keeping
children well, happy and able to enjoy

may be broken by being blown off a
window ledge by the wind. By means
cf this holder, recently patented by
a Palouse (Wash.) man, the milk bot
tle is securely held in place. A metal
lic plate is securely hinged onto the
upper end of the holder to cover the
cap and hold !t securely In place. Thia,
besides keeping the dog or cats from
clawing the cap out to get to the milk,
prevents dirt from settling on the cap
to cau3e annoyance and keeping lt from
falling into the bottle and its contents
when opened. A continuous piece of
wire is used in making the main por
tion of the holder. This wire is so
welded together smoothly that there
are no rough edges to catch and tear
the hand or clothing. The wire makes
a loop beneath the bottom of the bot
tle so thai, it may act as a sort of
cushion to prevent breaking in case
of being set down hard. The double
band about the center of the bottle
prevents it bsing struck against the
cement curb or stone when set down

VALUE OF POULTRY MANURE
Worth ls Placed at Not Less Than $6
and Up to $8 Per Ton by Some of
If the average farmer realized the
great value placed on poultry manure
by some of the largest experimental
stations in the United States, ho
would be more careful in the gather
ing, storing and proper distribution
of same over his land.
It is claimed that average poultry
manure consists as follows: Water,
66 per cent; nitrogen, 2 to 8 per cent;
phosphoric acid, 2 to 5 per cent; pot
ash, 8 to 10 per cent This analysis
would place the value of every ton
of poultry manure at not less than $5
and up to $8.

Even in well-ventilated, comfortable
