Red grows the cheek and warm the hand, the part is in the whole! Nor hands, nor cheeks, keep separate when soul is Joined to soul. With what different sensations peo ple look forward to the approach of winter. Elderly people look upon it with dread. The young hail It Joyously. They have visions of skating, dancing, sleighing, all the gaieties that cold weather is heir to. The sharp, biting winds and snow drifts as high as their heads have no terrors for them. The winds blow roses into their cheeks and the chill blasts send the blood dancing merrily through their veins. The earth and all that Is on or round about It is the slave of youth. No wonder the young feel at their best and have no thoughts save having a Jolly time while the dear old season lasts. My seamstress (whose daughter is working In a de partment store) recently complained to me: "I don't like winter, but my daughter Jennie does. She's scarcely home one evening all winter long. These are the engagements she has for next week : Monday she's going skat ing with a crowd of young folks ; Tues day she's goldg to a mistletoe party at the home of a girl friend; Wednes day night to a dance; Thursday to the movies; Friday to a molasses candy pull; Saturday night, sleighing, and Sunday, God willing, I'll see that she goes to church. Each and every week that follows is crowded with some sort of entertainment." Young folks have" the time of their lives In winter. It is at such affairs as these that people become aequaint Girls may go to these places by themselves, and so may boys. There introductions take place. They dance, dine, chat and make merry. Each young man plays the gallant—selects some girl to take home. If he has struck the fancy of the girl and she likes him as well as anyone she has met, she may Invite him to call. Thus romances begin. He accompanies her to a few dances, takes her out skating and sleighing a few times. It is then the audacious youth comes boldly for ward to the parents, announcing that the daughter cares for him. He asks permission to pay court to her, with a view to matrimony. Summer love affairs, romances, hang on indefinitely. Winter love affairs culminaté In speedy marriages. What's the rea son? Well, I don't know, unless It's In the air. Instead of bewailing the great number of festivities that crowd into the lives of the young, one should be glad that they can crowd so much en joyment Into winter evenings. Youth, joy, love and laughter are their due. They traverse youth's pathway but once in a lifetime. Those who have not had a happy youth-time thus far, should start in at once to make up for lost time. One cannot have too much rational enjoyment while time is young. 8WEETHEART8 TOO ATE. AFFECTION ing aid He her ATE. It I freely «nay discover What should please me in my lover, I would have her fair and witty. More of court than city; A little proud, but full of pity. Light and humorous In her toying. Oft building hopes and soon destroying. It Is well for a lover and his lass to be sure of their affection for each oth er. But it is not necessary to exhibit before the public their great fondness for each other. Haven't you seen the silly pair of lovers holding hands In the theater, blind to the knowledge that people were observing them and tittering? Many a summer lover is a nuisance. He persists in putting his arm behind her seat when he takes his girl trolley-riding. The winter beau makes himself quite as conspicu ous by holding his sweetheart too closely clasped In his arms In the dance, and being unable to restrain the fond words he whispers to her. He forgets other people have sharp ears and that he brings both himself and the girl into ridicule. If he Is in vited to sing before a company of fiends he is sure to select the most sentimental love ditty. He sings di rectly at the girl he cares for, bliss fully unconscious that anyone else is listening. If the girl is quite as responsive, en couraging him In his lovemaking be fore others, they make a sorry pair. Their friends do not invite them to their homes after they have ceased making jokes of them. His male com panions are apt to call the man a "soft headed cad."' Young women call him "a foolish fellow." The pair satisfy only each other. If the maiden is at all sensitive, she does not relish his parading his affection for her before friend8 or strangers. There are a time and a place for all things. It is not the time to call the girl of his choice "dearie," "sweetheart," "duekie" or "lovie" when there are others within earshot. Nor should he put her to maidenly shame by thrusting an un expected caress upon her. Let no young couple imagine that they are not observed wherever they may ap pear in public. A nice-looking youth and maiden are sure to be the cynosure of all eyes, admired as long as they deport themselves in accordance with good manners. When they deviate from this they are made fun of. They are then pointed out to other couples who might be foolish enough to follow their examples. Even the most exacting sweetheart should not expect her lover to be more than polite to her in the company of others. His lovemaking will be all the more appreciated in her little par lor, with only some few of her home folks by. It is great to have a tender heart, but it should not be worn on one's sleeve "for daws to peck at," as the old saying goes. GIRLS WHO WORK IN HOMES. Expect not more from thy workers than If- Just; Reward them well if they observe their trust. Nor with them coldness or pride invade, Since God and nature them our sisters made. "Wanted : A tidy young girl for gen eral liohsework in family of two adults and three children. A good home guar anteed, also generous wages and priv ileges. Private house ; all home cook ing." "Wanted: Girl for general house work for two adults In small flat. Lit tle cooking required. Buy all at bak ery and delicatessen. Fair wages, Fine air, flat on fourth floor." How many girls, looking for situa tions as general houseworker, would Ignore the first advertisement and jump at the chance to secure the place offered In the second? Nine girls out of ten would mentally exclaim: "No children ! Little or no cooking ! Only a few rooms to keep clean. That place is a cinch." The doorbell of the flat is constantly rung. They pass the door of the woman who has three children, turn ing, their heads the other way. Do these girls make a wise choice? I sent out a hundred and fifty letters to as many single workingmen, all of whom would eventually look for wives, putting this question up to them: It would open the eyes of the better class of working girl to know their opinion on this subject I will quote the letter of one young man, which voices the sentiment of the great ma jority. Dear Miss Libbey : I am glad you she has she has her In jority. Dear Miss Libbey : I am glad you ask my opinion on this subject. I have long had serious thoughts con cerning It. My views are that the girl looking for a soft place makes a shiftless wife. That girl Is afraid of work. She'd feed a husband on deli catessen and bakery stuff until he lost all vigor and all the blood in his veins and was unable to work. She would not make a fit mother, knowing little or nothing about children. The girl who makes her own living In a good home of others Is fitting herself day by day to care for a home of her own when she gets one. The study of the married life of a young couple is worth something to her. Above all, the stndy of child-life is the greatest lesson a young woman can learn and profit by later on. She sees how to care for the Infant, the toddler and the older ones, what is for their well being or dangerous for them. It Is brought to her attention what they thrive on or what they may sicken under. She learns the value of home cooking, the greatest knowledge on earth. The careful mother of a grow ing family teaches her economy In running a home. Such a girl soon be comes fitted to be the ablest kind of aid to a poor man who might wed her. He could well intrust his savings into her hands and see ahead future pros perity and happy home."—C. B. E. All girls should have a knowledge of housework and home life. Stale Bread. An interesting study has just been made of how and why bread grows stale. Contrary to popular impression, staleness in bread is not merely a drying out. Bread will grow stale if kept in n damp box. The staling is due to the fact that the starch grains In the bread harden and dry, even If the air Is moist, the moisture going over to the grains of gluten. The nu tritive' constituents of the starch are changed from a soluble condition to a more insoluble one. All this is the exact opposite of the process that goes on in baking. As a result of the char acter of the baking process bread may be kept perfectly fresh for 24 hours by keeping it at a temperature of 108 degrees Fahrenheit. The digestibility of stale bread Is due to the fact that it lftis to be thoroughly chewed before It can be swallowed. Not to Be Won Over. A Nebraska farmer, who had been counted doubtful at the best, greeted in a most unexpected way three prohibi tion workers who approached him. Ha was a big, sturdy giant, and out in the field picking corn. As the crew from the federation came toward him, head ed by a stocky business man, whose flushed face belled his habits, the farmer stopped his team, squared him self around, assumed a defiant atti tude, and cried : "Come on boys. Come on and talk to me all you want to. But I tell you right now, no matter what you say and what you promise, rm going to vote her dry.' —Christian Herald. a IT'S MERCURÏ AND SALIVATES Straighten Up! Don't Lose a Day's Work!
