Incidentally, this tour nas made in the winter and he had so few clothes that he was cold most of the time. He returned to Warsaw, determined to be a composer rather than a pianist, and in 1S7! was made professor in the Warsaw Conservatory.

When guests arrive, instead of the usual tal ly card, each one is furnished with a small, daintily made wicker nest, hung with white and green baby rib bon, and into which tiny candy bird's eggs are dropped, to serve in place of punches. Tho winner is he who has the largest number of eggs at the close of the game. The prevailing colors are green and white, but all the spring flowers are utilized in the scheme of decoration. The luncheon table presents a glisten ing surface of snowy linen traced over with delicate airy plumose vines and edged with bunches of lilies. In the center rises a miniature mound of moss around which there is a circle of col ored eggs; on top of the mound two brown rabbits are seen drawing a di minutive wagon load of egg bon-bons and driven by a pretty little rbick, in whose bill, green and white lines are held. Smaller but similar ornamental receptacles are distributed promiscu ously over the board, containing such fancy viands as the hostess desires to serve as fruits, nuts, confections, etc., and other delicacies proper to a light luncheon. A fancy conceit for the ices is to serve a wee chick in a half shall, a rabbit in a candy nest, or an egg in a lily mold. A miniature cardboard church filled wi?h candy eggs stands in front of each cover, and represents ti., tnv,.c of bon bons which the guests take upon leaving the table. . .4 The following is the musical pro gram which will be given at the Reid Memorial church today: Morning Service.

Violet goes well with the tan shades and one can wear brown and purple all tho spring and summer.

Voiles have been such standbys all winter for demitoik-tte indoor gowns at teas and bridge afternoons that there is rejoicing when we find thera again among the latest new fabrics. Another favorite material is chiffon cloth, and that, too, gives evidence ot holding its own for another season. For early spring nothing looks so well for afternoon wear in tho street, while nothing shows off the lines of the figure to such advantage the most desirable feature nowadays. Pure Maple We are the largest buyers 30 we are told of Vermont Maple Syrup. All our wheat is cooked in it before it is flaked. Our object is that incomparable flavor. To make MapI-FIake the most delicious as it is the most digestible of all cereal foods. Taste is of tremendous importance. With children for instance. The food that is best for them often needs to be forced on them. But they beg for Mapl-Flake. Was there ever a child who did not like maple sugar? The more Mapl-Flake a child eats the less it will eat of food not so good. Wheat is the perfect food. But wheat, in most forms, is only partly digestible. It consists largely of starch. And starch, to be digestible, must be made soluble. The par ticles must be separated so the digestive juices can get to them. That requires a process of 06 hours, and Mapl-Flake alone employs it. Our wheat is steam-cooked for six hours; then cured. Then flaked so thin that the full heat of our ovens gets to each atom. Then the flakes are toasted for 30 minutes in a heat of 400 degrees. This process it expensive, but we kaow It to be essential. The result i, every gran ule of starch i separated. Every atom is made digestible. The food is all tood. That is why Mapl-FlaVe is the most co mical food, though a package cos's 15 cents. The cream tosts no more than on 10-cent food, and cream is the main expecse. So please dn't go without the food that you hie best, thinking to save five cents. it' aii rod" 925-927-929 IVIAIN STREET.
