When serving an informal tea for club or committee the wise woman will provide herself with .plenty of the good sized hea- y paper nap kins to use instead of the cherished linen, which is used for the more informal occasions. Napkins of paper now come in large sizes and one may even have an initial to make them more personal. Nobody enjoyed the small and elusive paper napkns, for they never “stayed put,” but these are such a comfort and saving on linen. There are so many kinds of sandwiches that may be served with tea or some other hot drink, that one might have a different one every day for years. Small cookies and cakes are al ways popular. Make .hem unusual, either by filling them with some soft rich filling of fruit or custard, or sweetened and flavored whipped cream.

There are so many food acces sories now which add to the en joyment of serving simple foods. The frying basket for potato nests —they are so simple to make, using a fine shredder in the form of a flat grater, making the fresh po tato in such fine shoestrings that the basket when cooked even looks like a nest.

Why do people come home from a hospital with bowels working like a well-regulated watch? The answer is simple, and it’s the answer to all your bowel worries if you will only realize it: many doctors and hospitals use liquid laxatives. If you knew what a doctor knows, you would use only the liquid form. A liquid can always be taken in gradually reduced doses. Reduced dosage is the secret of any real relief from constipation. Ask a doctor about this. Ask your druggist how very popular liquid laxatives have become. They give the right kind of help, and right amount of help. The liquid laxative generally used is Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin. It contains senna and cascara — both natural laxatives that can form no habit, even in children. So, try Syrup Pepsin. You just take regulated doses till Nature restores regularity.
