The first woman letter writer on
record was Queen Jezebel, wife of
Ahah. and she used her pen for the
purpose of deception. The story is told
in I Kinpcs, 5:10. When Ahab was
mourning because he could not obtain
N'aboth's vineyard by fair' means,
Jezebel conceived of foul ones. "So
she wrte letters in Ahnb's name and
sealed them with his seal, and sent
the letters unto the elders and to the
nobles that were in his city, and that
dwelt with Naboth." They sufrgesed
a plot which resulted in the death of
Naboth by stoning.
An earlier letter mentioned in the
fliblc was written by a man and was
equally detestable, "When we remem
ber the contents and the purpose of
David's Jetter to Job, how it did for
T'riah "hat Jezebel did for Naboth,
and from a dirtier motive, we could
have wished to this too that it had
never been preserved.
The writing of letters has proved to
be disastrous to more than one m;in,
ami they have brought downfall to
many. Hvery one should be careful of
what they write. Good letters, like
pood thoughts, bring back good things.
ously. fur a family not rich, "keeping a
maid" is rank extravagance.
There are certain times, and emer
gencies in family life when keeping a
maid is actually justified, such as times
of prolonged illness of one or more
members of the family, when the
housewife must act as a nurse in addi
tion to other duties. Alio, when there
are very young babies in the family
requiring the mother's strength and
care, a maid's help is justified, and
should be provided by economies in
other directions. It is only when there
are excessive demands on the house
wife's physical strength that a maid la
really needed in families of average

The up-keep and care of the home
and children is -as much the business
of the wife and mother as the actual
earning of the husband and father.

The just woman will admit that
woman has no more real claim to ex
tra hours of rest and leisure than her
husband. Even housewives can so ar
range their work as to afford one
hour's rest or recreation each day
and that is more than is allowed the
average business man or worker. It is
true that housework cannpt be limited
to a strict eight or ten hour day. but
it CAN be so arransed as to consume
no more than that during the WHOLE
day, and so as to. leave the evenings
free for rest and compansionship with
the wage earner.
Tf, by agreement between husband
and wife, it is decided that the wife is
more useful, economically, working
outside her home than in it, the em
ployment of a maid to assume the do
mestic duties usually alloteU to the
wife, is justified. These, however, are
rare situations.
If the employment if a maid is for
the sole purpose of giving the house
wife more liesure and pleasure, or for
"raising the social standard of the
family" it is both absurd, and an eco
nomic wrong or act of selfishness.

On proper breathing depends all the

Take breathing exercises for 1" min

Do your breathing exercises in the

In the days when ready prepared
meats have reached an extravagant
price, many a thirfty housewife with
n eye for the picnic sandwich, and
the cold -meat supper has found it
wise to "purchase a whole ham and do
the required boiling or baking in her
home kjtchen. . I
Boiled ham, bought by ehe pound,
costs fro m60 to 73 cents, while a
smoked ham to be cooked at home,
can be bought at from ;r, to 40 cents
a pound. A considerable saving is thus
made by buying a 10 or 12 pound ham,
preparing it at home. :jid thus obtain
ing a summer's supply of ready-to-serve
and delicious meat.
According to an old Virginia recipe
for boiling bams the method is as fol
lows :
lmmers the ham in water the night
before cooking and souk for 1- or 14
hours. Wash off thoroughly in luke
warm water. Put the ham to cook
skin side down, in a large boiler full
of boiling water. Add one cupful of
sugar and vinegar. Lower the heat
under the boiler and let ihe meat sim
mer for five hours, keeping the boiler
covered. As the water boils out keep
adding fresh boiling water, keeping the
boiler fuli. When the ham is done it
will turn over, skin up and the meat
will pull away from the bone for an
inch or more. When done, lift the
whole kettle off the stove, skim oft the
surface Impurities, and let the meat
cool in the water in which It cooked.
After removing the ham the modern
economical housewife will strain care
fully the water in which it cooked and
store it in jars for flavoring soups and
cooked vegetables.
For a baked ham. remove the out
side skin of the boiled ham and stick
the fatty surface with whole cloves.
one-h;if inch apart, over the whole
surface. Fluster the whole ham thickly
with brown sugar, set in a roasting
pan, and bake, basting with a water
and cider liquid. When done, take
from the oven and set on top of the
stove, and continue, basting for ten
minutes, until the sugar crust is brown
and crisp.
Keep the cooked meat in a sterilized
earthcrn jar, set in a cool, dry place
and covered carefully from heat, dust,
or insects.
With a large ham. after the boiling
the ham may be cut in two parts and
only one-half need he baked, if pre
ferred, giving variety in the form in
which it may be served.
