?Old Mother Nature.
Peter Rabbit reached the Smiling
Pool without mishap and looked ea
gerly for Jerry Muskrat Jerry wasn't
to be seen. Peter looked over at Jer
ry's house, near where the Laughing
Brook entered the Smiling Pool. Was
it his imagination, or was Jerry's
house bigger than it had been the
last time he had seen it? Peter
couldn't be sure. It was some time
since he had visited the Smiling I'ool,
and then he hadn't taken any special
notice of Jerry's house.
But now he looked at It very hard,
and the more he looked the more the
feeling grew that it was bigger than
It had been. Certainly. Jerry had
been at work on it. But that might
not mean anything more than that i
Jerry ww setting it ready for win- I
ter. He did this every fall. Still he I
couldn't get rid of the feeling that'
it was bigger than it ever hud been
Presently he saw something mov
ing out from among the rushes on
the further side of the Smiling Pool.
At first it looked as if some fallen
rushes were floating out of their own
accord. Then he made out a little
brown head in the middle of them.
Peter knew instantly that It was
Jerry Muskrat bringing more rushes
for that house.
"Hello, Jerry!" called Peter.
Jerry didn't reply. He couldn't.
'Vou see, his mouth was full of those |
rushes. He knew better than to try'
i to talk with his mouth full. When he 1
reached his house he climbed out of '
the water and dragged the rushes up
on the roof. Then, without guying a
! word, he carefully worked them in t
j place where he wanted them. When
he had fixed them to suit himself he
| cat down to rest.
"Hello, Peter." said he. his eyes
twinkling. "What is new In the j
? Great World7'
! "Nothing much that I know of," re-;
plied Peter. "Isn't your house bigger j
than It wait?" i
"I hope so," replied Jerry. "If 1t j
isn't I have wasted a lot of time and '
worked hard for nothing. It will be I
bigger still before I am through with j
it. This roof ought to be twice as J
thick as it is."
"Why?" asked Peter.
"Because we are going to have a j
I long, hard, cold winter," replied Jerry, i
j "and the thicker this roof is the j
warmer my bedroom will be."
I "Pooh!" exclaimed Peter. "Proba- |
bly you are doing h lot of hard work ?
for nothing. Winter is a long way
off yet. so how can you know what
kind of a winter it is going to he?" 1
"I know," replied Jerry. "It is go- I
ing to he long and hard and cold, and |
I am going to be prepared for it."
"That is what Johnny Chuck said,
hut I don't believe he knows, and 1
don't believe you know a thing about
"Johnny Chuck is right." declared
Jerry Muskrat "What has he been
doing to set ready for it?"
"He has dug his house deeper than
ever before, and he has stuffed him
self until he Is so fat that it is a won
der to me that he doesn't burst." re
plied Peter. "It Is so. But you i
haven't told me how you know the!

Another Chat on Calories.
If you have determined, according
to the chat on food values last week,
that you require a certain number of
calories of food a day, the next step
is to find out the caloric value of the
foods you are eating- We will take,
for Instance, the case of a grown
woman leading an ordinary active
life. She requires 2.5UO calories ot
food daily to keep her fit. If she
weighs more than she should, she has
keen eating more than this amount,
and to reduce she must eat less. She
must eat. Instead of 2,600, about 1,500
to reduce at the rate of two pounds
a week, which is the safest rate.
Without knowing anything about
calories you will see from this that to
rcduce you must cat only three-fifths
the amount of food you have been
accustomed to. But If you wish to be
accurate about your diet savo this
table of caloric values. The caloric
value stated is for an average serv

chops, 150-300; pork chops, each, 200

slice of b.icon, 25.
Fish?Lean fish, 135 calories; fat
fish, 265; oysters, each, 8.
Vegetables?Asparagus, one stalk

corn, 100; green corn, one ear, 100;

Worried.?The best way to reduce
Is through the natural processes, such
as dieting and exercise. You may
weigh almost anything you wish by
regulating the diet, which Is sure to
be the healthiest method, even though
it In not the quick way of taking off
Mesh. If you need information about
this, send a stamped addressed en

you full directions on food values.
You should be sure to read the week
ly chats on reducing in this column.
Discouraged.?A clear skin, which
is also fine in texture, means a clean

which h is an important function in
this process. The warm bath dally?

the pores over the whole body are
kept more active and thus relieve
those on the more exposed part of the
body. The pores of the face and

usual cleaning, which will make the

Plenty of Vitamins.
There are plenty of vitamins In the
ordinary American dietary to supply
every need of the body. To be sure
we have stirred up considerable fuss
about vitamins lately. Ho dietetic
advice is complete without allusion
to these newly discovered food acces
sories. No tonic, beverage or pre
masticated food Is up-to-date without
some claim of vitamin content.
There are plenty of vitamins in the
ordinary American dietary, I say.
That Is, a fairly balanced and varied
dietary- One thing: the average
American will not endure, unless he
is some kind of crank or the victim
of some plausible food "specialist,"
is a restriction of his bill of fare.
The greater the variety of foods he
can have at one meal the happier
he is?and the healthier, provided he
got-s in for variety, but not for quantity.
Perhaps certain classes of individ
uals aside from mere food or diet
cranks do suffer from an inadequate
amount of vitamins in their diet. For
example, many nursing mother* avoid
this and that wholesome and really
essential food merely because the
saireysamps have a tradition that a
nursing mother can't eat this and
that?a great mistake which often
has deplorable results for the infant.
Unquestionably many Infants
"raised" on various substitutes for
breast milk or fresh cows' milk suit
ably mod'fled suffer such grave nu
tritional effects of vitamin deficiency
as rickets and scurvy, not to mention
many other less clearly defined nutri
tional disorders in childhood.
Strong evidence has been adduced
to support the belief that the disease
pellagra, which seems to be more
prevalent than ever in the southern
states may be directly due to a vita
min deficiency by reason of insuffi
cient variety and particularly Insuffi
cient fresh foods such as milk, eggs
greens and the fresh vegetables. In
deed. the United States public health
service has strongly urged the con
clusion that the drinking of at least
whispered It in my ear while I was
asleep. But I know. It is Just a feel
ing. I guess that is It, just a feeling,
but all the same I know. You mark
my words, Peter Rabbit, we are going
to have one of the worst winters ever.
But I don't care; I'll be ready for it."

ter and started for more rusheB.

Good Things to
Make With Ginger
Whether you call it molasses cake
or gingerbread. It doesn't make very
much difference. It Is all pretty
much the same. There Is a soft, cakey
loaf, or crisp-edged little patty cakes,
with ft spongy texture, a delicious fla
vor compound of sweet und ginger.
It's good, that's all.
Really you can vary the uses of
gingerbread to a remarkable degree,
so If your family like the flavor don't
fear becoming monotonous by having
it often. Patty cakes frosted with
chocolate are delicious. A loaf cut in
slices and served with whipped cream
Is delicious, and as an accompani
ment of apple sauce, sliced oranges
and canned fruit It is always good.
