To the mother who had made that idle threat a cat was an ordinary, small domestic animal which she could have handled with one hand, even though it were on vepgeance bent. To the baby who heaid the threat the cat was a monster, nearly as big as her. own small self, hideous i in mien, aimed with death-dealing fangs. No ciazed lion could possibly have seemed more terrifying to an adult than that picture of a big black cat seemed to the^baby. The mother who invoked such a threat would have done a gentler thing” had she tied her baby up by the thumbs and lashed her with a strap. This later course would have . scarred the baby's body and quite . justly landed the mother in the police court. But the lying threat had | scarred the baby’s mind, yet left the j ! fnother immune. . , i We're slow to realize that minds | can be scarred more dreadfully and | | lastingly than bodies.

The sketch shows a gown which is intended to serve between cold and hot days. It starts out to be demure and conservative, but it suddenly de cides that pink and white gingham would be a pleasing addition. So it has a round collar, flat cuffs and a square handkerchief of this colorful, if commonplace, fabric. The skirt has narrowness on one aide, fulness on the other, which is the fashionable way with skirts. There is no at tempt to persuade women to wear much width between hip and ankles, but the slim, narrow silhouette is con tinually widened by an inserted flare of material at one side. It may calm women's minds to know that straightllne frocks are revived in the new French collections. This means they will be worn over here during the next six months. Some of the new skirts are too narrow to be graceful. That is a danger against, which v/c must defend ourselves. The introduction of side fulness re deems the overly slender skirt in sufficient manner to please any woman. One danger we may not he able to ward oft is the overy tight skirt across the spine. It gets worse and worse day by day. The Amer icans indulged in it when the first draped skirts came out. but they man aged to arrange the drapery in a less awkward manner than these new Egyptian skirts demand. Probably there will arise a new fashion to distress reformers through this channel. If our women adopt the pharaonic skirt, will they be able to walk? <Cepr right, 1923.1 M No matter how you prefer your tea—strong \ or weak, with cream, B lemon or straight — 1 ■ you’ll like Tetley’s I Orange Pekoe.

RACIAL ORlGlN—English. SOURCE—A locality. Here is a group of family names based upon a word which has all but disappeared from our modern vo cabularies. There are really more of them than are listed in the foregoing variations, but they are met with, rather rarely, and those we have list ed here are sufficient to show the manner in which such names were formed. "Thwaite.” in the ancient north Rngliah speech, meant a felled place; that is. a spot In the woods which had been cleared of trees. The word Is apparently of Norse origin. It is found quite ferquenlly in the old Norse rec ords. and its use among the Anglo- Saxons seems to have been confined to Cumberland and the northern sections, where there were Norwegian settle ments and Norse influence. Originally the name was simply a phrase denoting place of residence. This was, of course, at a much later period than that of the introduction of the word Itself into the Saxon speech, and accordingly as the Anglo- Saxon or Norman form was used the name was "atte Thwaite,” or “de la Thwaite.” The variations are hut the development of original efforts to describe specifically the kind of ■•thwaites” at or in which people lived. Thus a "thornthwaite” would be a clearing in which thorny plants were growing. A "brathwaite” was a "broad” one. a "orossthwaite” one in which a cross had been erected, a ‘goldthwalte” one in which yellow flowers grew, ami so on. MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN. For the Children's Party. When my children give a party I make a special kind of sandw-ich they call the "brown and white sand wiches.” To make these, cut a round slice of wheat bread and one of Bos ton brown bread. In the center of the latter cut a small bole with a thimble. Spread the white slice with cottage or cream cheese, press the brown bread over it and insert in the rounded opening a cherry - or olive. Such sandwiches are wholesome as well as attractive to the child's eye. - (Copyright, 1923.1 Apricot Dessert. Rub one can of apricots through a sieve into a dish.

Black Pussy tingled all over with the hope that at any moment a Mouse might pop out of that hole. Once in a; while she prowled around in other parts of the Old Orchard. But for the most part she spent her time watching that particular hole. Now that hole had been made by a young Meadow Mouse. He was one of the children of Danny an# Nanny Meadow Mouse, and when 'he had left home to make his own way in the Great World he had gone straight up to the Old Orchard. There he had been living very comfortably. Just as down on the Green Meadows Danny and Nanny Meadow Mouse had many little tunnels under the snow, so this young Meadow Mouse had many tunnels under the snow in the Old Orchard. This particular hole was one of several he had made to reach the surface. He didn’t come out often, and when he did come out it was mostly at night. He felt safer at night. There was no real need for him to come out on the surface at all. and when he did it was in the spirit of adventure. He often visited these various holes and climbed up high enough to poke the tip of his nose out. In this way he left the scent of Mouse around those holes, and that is how Black Pussy knew that a Mouse lived down somewhere below that particular hole. That is how she knew it was not a deserted hole. It was that smell of* ADVEWTISB.MKXT, A DVKHI'ISKM KM. Every spoonful of Kellogg’s Bran helps free you from toxic poisons!
