"Oh, I slept soundly, but I awoke too soon. I had n splendid dream, and I had my flst drawn back to biff Marie on the nose and than I awoke. I shall never get another such oppor tunity." As Father Does. Two small boys were arguing over some trivial matter when one of them said: "I'll bctcha I'm right." Tho other boy said ho would not bet, ns It was wrong, and this statement led to another discussion, ono youagster In sisting that there was no harm In bet ting nnd the other that there was. The boy who was advocating betting talked so loud that ho attracted his mother, and she, like nil good mothers, tried to tell him that it was wrong to Ramble on anything. "Well, dnddy does," was the boy's reply, "cause when he came home with tthnt Liberty bond he said It was a $50 bet with the kaiser that he would loso the war." A Cnpo4 wto f Wtwrt, Mb f, Meek. U A. A FOOD CCONOMV A Conserving Food The recognized value of Grape-Nuts as a "saving" food for these serious times, rests upon real merit. Unlike the ordinary cereal Grape-Nuts re quires no sugar, little milk or cream, and re quires no cooking or other preparation in serving. A trial is well worth while for those who sincerely desire to save. ' There's a Reason's Thoy have been at a great feast of languages and stolen tho scraps. GOOD THINGS FOR THE TABLE. In the spring time green things np- penl to tho appetite, v need them as blood purifiers nnu various combina tions may be used to lend variety. Onion Salad. Scoop out tho centers from three Spanish onions that have been peeled. Fill each with high ly seasoned chicken, sausage or meat or nuts or bread crumbs nnd but ter and salt nnd pepper. Add a little water to tho baking dish nnd bake them until brown and tender. When the onions nro cold, cut them In quar ters and place thorn on a bed of water cress, lay a sardine on each quarter of the onion and serve with French or boiled dressing. v i Oatmeal Bread. Take two cupfuls of oatmeal, one-half cupful of molasses, two teaspoonfuls of salt over this pour n pint of boiling water; when cool add yeast and Hour to mix well. Let ralso and when light form Into loaves and bake when light. Cod llsh, the dried variety may make a most pnlntablc main dish. Soak the llsh and cook carefully not to break It, then drain carefully and let It simmer In a drawn butter sauce. Serve with baked potatoes. A most delicious white sauce for codfish Is made by using sour cream lnstend of milk, pre paring It in the same way. Onions are delicious baked. In their skins then peel them, season with but ter, pepper nnd salt or cream, or If desired In n white sauce. They have quite a different flavor. Another de licious way to prepare onions Is to roast them in the ashes or on the ledge of the furnace. Do not peel them us the skin will often be burned' nnd It will be necessary to use care to re move all the charred portions. Onions are also delicious stuffed with sausage, and baked, basting dur ing the linking with the fat and some wnter. Every particle of vegetable water not used as sauce for the vegetable when serving it, should be saved. Add it to tho soup kettle, if potato wnter, use it to stew ment or soup meat. for gravies, griddle cakes or pastry, when well chilled. The valuable min eral salts contained In vegetable wa ter should not be wasted. What's one man's another's meat or and Fletcher. poison, stgnor. Is drink.
