2sOT ALWAYS APPRECIATED.
The country newspapers have
manv faults. They make many
blunders and leave undone many
good works: Yet when you follow
them month after month you are
gtruclc with the unanimity with
which they stand loyally by their
community and the constancy with
which they preach the doctrine of
citizenship and fair play in all
things. Alto Herald.
Nothing more true than the
above. There is not a paper in the
state but can be found week out
and week in tryng to build up its
town. In building up a town the
work results in building up the
business of the individuals in it.
When a newspaper fight's for good
laws and their observance, when it
fights for better sidewalks, when it
fights for anything which will re
dound in good to the public, it is
fighting for the improvement of the
merchant's business and for the
increase of wealth and comfort of
that merchant. Just how the mer
chant appreciates this'is shown by
the advertisements in the paper of
the man who is doing the fighting
for him. Sad to say, in some cases
it looks from the advertisements as
if some merchants do not appreciate
what the newspaper man is doing
for them. If any one does not think
that the newspaper is an absolute
necessity to towns, all he has to do
try to remember any town that has
a name outside of its precinct and
yet has no newspaper. Galveston

Cold milk should never be added
to mashed potato, which it will make

boiled, should be used.
To get jelly out of glasses whole,
wet the glass with cold water before
filling, and before taking out run a
knife around the edge; do not run
it any further down, turn the glass
on its side and turn it around in
your hand to let it fall loose from
the sides, and if your jelly is fine
you will have no trouble about its
coming out whole.
For burns apply equal quantities
of linseed oil and lime water. It is
an excellent remedy. A bottle

Cut cold mashed potatoes into

Dip first in melted butter and then
in a beaten egg; lay in a buttered
tin, and bake in a hot oven for

USE FOR STALE BREAD.
A good way to use stale bread is
to fry it, simply dipping it in cold
water before putting it in the greas
ed fryingpan. This should brown
nicely if the fat is very hot, and is
liked by many as well as if dipped

milk and bake.
A story is told of a lawyer whose
quick wit never . deserted him,

a client entered the office, and
throwing back. his coat, said, irrit

as an oven."
"Why shouldn't It be?" .was Ihe
calm response. "It is here that I
make my bread." Tit-Bits.
