A Realist, Say The Stars
Of Baby Harold Hanson
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Han
son, 4 820 South I st. Boni May
Here is a realist, a hard think
ing dealer in cold facts.
Hard to believe, isn't it, of this
chubby baby boy, but nevertheless
the stars have said it and there
fore it must be true.
Perhaps he will he a scientist

dolicate instruments as his play

He will care little for money
for moneys sake, but will use his
wealth as means of bringing hap
piness to others, giving it as free
ly aB his services to the world.
He will talk little and think much,
say the stars. His entire life will
be lived with a single purpose—
the goad of mankind.

Thoroughly cleanse the face with

Tho right way to clean the

once at night. Besides brushing

of hot cakes.

SCIENCE of hot cake making is
In making them as they are want

HOT cakes —to be successful—

CYNTHIA GREY'S ANSWERS
THE NEWLY WEDS 1 CLUB
Dear Miss Grey: We need your advice and will
appreciate it very much.
Our aim is to organize a club of newly married
girls, and those who are about to be married and
teach them how to prepare and serve a well-cooked
meal at the lowest possible cost. And how to keep
their homes neat and clean without too much waste
of energy. And another very important thing, to
teach them how to prepare for the first visit of the
Now, our idea is to meet once a week and spend
an afternoon together in private homes of moderate
means, as -this club is for the bride of moderate
means, more than those who can afford luxuries.
We will appreciate any suggestion made by you
or any of your readers. Would like an early reply.

panion and hoped for a
home. I had previously
worked as a servant and iso
lated myself from all human
companionship until I felt
myself going insane. I had
taught school eight years,
but deafness and grief put
a stop to it. My husband at
the age of 51! lias to work
as a laborer, earning
$12.50 per week, and lias
work only part of the time,
so we are much in debt.
We live in a half-finished
three-room house on a lot
not paid for. My ward- . i
robe is sadly in need of re» *:
plenishing, but no hopes
for any more. My baby
boy 3 months old is a ray
of light, but is a lot of care.
I am troubled greatly with
sleeplessness. Tho baby
was given $25 as a present.
How could I use this to the
greatest advantage for my
self? I have thought of
placing him in a day nurs
ery and learning a trade.
What would you suggest?
What I desire most just now
is a little sleep.
A. —Make use of that lot.
Thin the Buckwheat
Many persona find cakes
made entirely of buckwheat
objectionable. This can be
remedied by making the bat
ter one-third corn meal and
two-thirds buckwheat. The
cakes are said to be equal
ly as good. Many prefer this
mixture rather than the or
dinary all buckwheat cake.
Quick Buckwheat Cukes
Two cups of buckwheat and
half a cup of corn meal; two
cups of warm milk and half a
cup of warm water; two table
spoonfula of molasses, two tea
spoonfuls of baking powder, one
even teaspoonful of salt. Mix
milk, water and molasses to
gether. Sift meal and flour three
times with the baking powder
and salt. Make a hole in the cen
ter of the flour, stir in the milk
and water quickly and lightly till
you have a good batter, not too

of building it will help do away
with that sleeplessness. Write
to Helen Dow, Haven Heights,
Wash., and ask her to tell you
how to care for them. The eggs
will help <ut down your expenses,
and early in the spring you can
use the droppings to fertilize a
part of your lot and have all the
vegetables for your table. You
will find yourself a new woman,
put life into your husband, and
a happy home will result. But
you must study the care of your
chickens, aud stick to it.

fools enough to allow it gave
