Anty Drudge sets Mrs. Boarder right as to the Modern Washday. Mr». Boarder—" Yea, ray husband would rather be in hia own home than boarding; but when I remember those dreadful wash-days and the sickening smell of boiling suds. I’d rather board.” Anty Drudge— '*You wouldn’t have had any sickening smell of boiling suds if you had used Fels-Naptha soap and cool or lukewarm water. Neither you nor any one else would have known washing was going on in the house.” Plenty of reasons why you should wash the Fels-Naptha way. The least labor. The least bodily distress. The least wear and tear oh hands and fabric. And the result, the cleanest, whitest clothes you ever saw. That’s why you should use Fels-Naptha soap. Boiling and hard rubbing are done away. You soap the clothes, roll and place them in cool or lukewarm water. Then you rub lightly, rinse and hang out. Every fibre is clean and pure as it came from the loom. One trial will convince you. You will no more return to the old way, than you would stfap a pack on your back to carry throughout the day. Follow carefully the directions on the red and green wrapper. kf*****— * * vt ’# '***' 4+ 5 .4 4 $10,000,000 OF MORTGAGES ■ PUT ON ASSESSMENT ROLL Not Taxable, Claim Trust and Insurance Companies, Which v Will Appeal To Courts • . < The board of assessors held a meet ing, Tuesday morning, with repre sentatives of insurance and trust companies to go through the formali ties of placing approximately 910.- 000,000 of mortgages held by these concerns on the tax rolls. The com panies will later begin .proceedings against the city to test the authority of the assessors to do this. The companies now pay a specific tats of one-half of one per cent when the mortgages are recorded, the city receiving no taxes from the mortgages. Heretofore, it was sup posed that the mortgages were ■exempt from city taxation, but the cotporation counsel’s office has held that they must go on the rolls.

"If we succeed in keeping the mortgages on the rolls we will be in a position to put approximately $25.- 000,090 lu mortgages on the rolls next year. We did not receive the opinion until recently, and have not had the time to go Into the matter as thoroughly as we desired. For In stance. there are approximately SB,- 000,000 in mortgages held by In dividuals which will be a loss this year. ‘ \ “If we lose out In our contention we will be short only |IBO,OOO in actual taxes, not enough to make a serious difference In allowing for the estimates.” ORDERS THAT HORSES BE TREATED HUMANELY Supt.

HIDING GAME FOR RAINY DAYS INDOORS Any number from three to thirty may play this game, which is a vari ation of ‘’Hide the Thimble.” Any small object may be hidden. All leave the room except one, who puts the object somewhere In plain view, yet In an unusual place, where it is not conspicuous. If it Is white, lay It on a white cloth, if dark place it close to some larger dark object of the same color, so that It will not readily catch the eye. It may be placed behind an other object, providing nothing has to be moved to see it. When the object is hidden the pllyeri are called IfT 10 hunt, for It. The first who Is successful sits down and calls out "I spy.” Each in turn as he discovers the object does the same. The one who first saw it has the privilege of hiding it next time. WARM WEATHER BEGINS TO BREAK UP ICE 111 LUES Fields Gradually. Disappearing:, But There Is Much More Than Last Ywur The reports from the regular and display stations of the weather , bureau and meteorological service of ; Canada, indicate that the warm weather of last week has softened the ice in all of the takes and the con ditions are more favorable. In Superior the field of ice extends from Duluth eastward to within two miles of Two Harbors; east of this open water extends beyond vision. Over the central and eastern portions the fields are extensive, but more open water is showing and the fields are breaking up. In Whitehall bay the ice remains solid. In St.. Mary’s river the chan nel is open to near Six Mile Point, but remains firm over the southern portion. In Green Bay the ice is be ginning to honeycomb. In Lake Michigan the fields have moved out from the southern portion and very little Ice is reported from the Islands south to Chicago. More open water is showing to the north and east of Beaver Island, and also at the Straits there is- open water showing, but the conditions have not changed materially. In Huron the fields have moved off the west shore and very little Ice Is visible. The extensive field over the southern section moved out of view April 6. The ice continues to run out of Lake St. Clair. In Erie t"he field broke up and moved out of Maumee bay, and a large expanse of open water is reported over the western half of the lake. The fields continue over the eastern portion. In Ontario the fields are confined to the eastern half of the lake and are beginning to break up and move freely with the wind. In comparison with the same period last year there is more ice reported in all of the lakes.

CUT OUTS FOR LITTLE DAUGHTER feat Does your little daughter want a pretty paper doll? is a pattern for one. By trac ing it with carbon paper onto heavy drawing paper or light cardboard she can have a number of dolls to cju our and paint in different coiora. XXXII.—SHE ADVISES A REGULAR BEDTIME. Wy Bear Daughter—l regret that your nurse iltti not put your little daughter to aleep at a regular hour. The hours of Bleep should be regulated with the same precision as the mealt, and although a child should depend upon Ita mother or nurae for its food. It can go to sleep of Its own accord. You will probably have some trouble in putting your baby to sleep now because it has had time to leant very bad habita. However, I should make a certain hour the time to un dress her and put her in her little bed, and if you know that she la per fectly comfortable, just leave her alone until she rails asleep. She may cry a little but this will not hurt her. Indeed, a great many very wlae nurses insist that if a child does not cry a good deal the flrst two months, its lungs will not be well developed. Upon your putting your child to bed regularly, my dear, depends much of your freedom. Os course, I know’ the joy of holding one’s baby in one's arms while crooning a lullaby until Its drowsy eyelids droop over its sleepy eyes, but I am afraid this will become rather irksome in time, and the baby Elliott-Taylor=Woolfenden Cos.
