HINTS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE Delicious tea-time refreshments can be made with a minimum of time and trouble by melting marshmallo pea nut brittle, nougat or carame.s over hot water and adding to wafers. For instance: Saltine wafers may be spread with melted r .arshmallov.s topped with chopped nuts, and browned in the oven. Vanilla snaps may be put together as a sandwich with peanut brittle or caramels, soft ened to spread. Ginger snaps make a good com bination with a sandwich filling of softened nougat, and many other variations can be worked out to suit a: taste. The children will enjoy taking over this part of the meal preparation and feel that they are helping mother. By the way, many of the candies which are sold in small packages may be melted and used as a sauce for ice cream, or added to a simple foundation filling for cake.

I This is the tree frog that grows to maturity in the water which ' he forsakes to live among the leaves, being able to cling to them and there catch his meals in the form of insects. The tree frog is being adopted by those fcaving indoor gardens be . cause of his ability to cope with destructive flower pests. Nature sometimes mixes up her families in odd and strange ways, as for example, in the frogs who begin life in the water and end it among the leafy branches of the trees. This is true of the tree frogs. These lit tle fellows seem to have no trouble at all in clinging to the leaves and branches of gnarled trees, living upon insects, rather than in the water as is the case with their relatives, the fishes. Tree frogs have always had a strange fascination, and florists and plant lovers have taken to keeping them in fern-cases, among potted plants, and in green houses where their appetites make them useful in keeping all manner of destructive in sects under control. They are quiet little fellows and hard to find even when in captivity and doubly so when wild. They can climb up the most slippery tree trunk or the side of a glass dish, sticking, there firmly and motionless, legs drawn close to the body, and their little stomachs flat tened against the glass.

While climbing about among the leaves for insects, worms, and similar creatures, the lit tle fellows always hunt out a shady pool in which to mate and ra'se a family. These go from the egg to tadpole stage‘in the water and then after turning into frogs again hunt a tree to climb. The tiny tree frogs, however, are closely related to the great bull-frogs. These giants may not climb trees but they travel about the land quite as independent of the water as a cat or a dog. In some parts of the world they have learned to climb up into branches as well. In Africa there are giant frogs able to withstand the hardest droughts, climbing tress, digging holes and forming strange alliances with spiders in order to exist. During long dry periods they are hard to find, but when rain comes they -11 seek the puddles, and where not one could be found by the sharpest eyed na tive, fifty will appear. The native Africans know them as “matlametlo,” and prize them for their food. A government naturalist reported that "when cooked, they look like chickens, and form a good meal, so large do they grow.” The matlametlo sometimes becomes pug nacious and will snap and resist be ing caught. The African bushmen told the sci r entist that these giants among frr:s will not only climb trees during dry weather if there are any trees to be found in the vicinity, but will make holes among the roots of certain giant grasses. Spiders of large sizes, which species form some sort of an alliance with the matlametlo, take up their homes in the same holes, making a strong web across the mouth, thus offering a protection against snakes ana other intruders. The giant frog does not molest the spider and the spider in no way bothers the frog; they live peaceably together. The great African bull-frog is large and handsome, greenish-brown with variegated mottlings of reddish brown. The abdomen is yellow, mot tled with orange and the chin is splashed with brown. Its eyes are very curious and really beautiful, be ing of a rich chestnut hue, covered with a profusion of little golden white dots which shine with a metallic lustre. The lower jaw is remarkable for two large, Why, tooth-like pro jections in front. The matlametlo grows to large size, having been found from six inches across to as large as eight inches. The bushmen told the government naturalist that the matlametlo will catch fish easily and have been known to even catch and devour small chickens and other creatures the size of ducklings.
