A New Year's Ev Party.
This really clever affair was original
with the hostess who gave It last year.
It came to my notice too late for use
then, so bore It la now, nil fresh and
newly embellished. There were twelve
guests with the hostess. Each one was
annulled a month In the Invitation
and she came dreancd to reirescnt
that month. 1 hen eah slrl had the
privilege of asking a man who was to
come representing; an event or promi
nent person aKociutcd with the month
represented by bin "fair lady."
On arm-In" It was most Interesting
to nee the way the nirls tnok to repre
sent the months and their i-.wnrts the
events. Kor Instance, an animated
firecracker a'-companled ".Inly,' a
"Santa Clans" came with "December,"
who was clad la pure whi'e Willi a i
chaplet of holly.
There was an Informal dance, and at
11 o'clock refreshments were served.
The guests all watching the hands of
the clock, at five minutes before 12 all
arose, Joined hands and Bang. "Auld
I.ang Syne." As the hour Founded
the hostess opened the front door for
the pasting out of t,ie old year and the
entrance of the little New Year.
There was a fortune cake contain
ing a good wish or prediction for each
guest. The latter were tightly rolled
nnd concealed In glided nut shells.
The place cards were cut In bell shape
end had llttlo calendars on them tied
with a knot of red ribbon. The one
who guessed the most "events" or
characters was presented with a weo
traveling clock; the other two prizes
were calendars.
Same Goad Garnet.
Here are some very old games, but
I am sure they will be brand new to
many of our young readers. The first
Is called "Catching the Snake's Tall"
and comes to us from Japan, where It
is a great favorite. The children form
In line, each with hands resting upon
the shoulders of the player In front.
The one who is to act as "catcher"
1s left out. The first child In the line
Is called the "head" and the laBt one
the "tall." The "catcher" Is placed
about fifteen feet from the "head,"
and at a signal he tries to catch the
"tail," or the last child In the "snake"
without touching anyone else. The
others may defend the "tall" by mov
ing about, keeping the line unbroken,
for If the line should be broken It Is
equal to the "tall" being caught, and
that unlucky person must become the
catcher while the last named goes to
the head of the line.
Now for the second game, called
"Feather Piny." It is very amusing.
although It sounds no simple. All the
players ere seated on the floor, having
first counted "out" to see who will bo
"It." A hollow square Is formed with
a sheet held close up to the chins of
the players on the floor. A feather Is
produced, a little downy thing, and
blown back and forth by the players.
Tho child who Is "It" Is to try to
catch the feather on one of the chil
dren or directly In front of a child
when that one hecomes "It." The
feather must not he touched by the
hands of the children on the floor,
nor must they rise from the floor;
their hands must be, kept under the
sheet, all manipulations of the feather
being done by blowing.
A Jolly Celebration.
A render writes: "Iant New Year's
night we had such a Jolly time I want
to tell you about it for the benofit of
all tho department leaders who may
want a real frolic.
"I asked the guests, who were all
Intimate friends, to come dressed like
children not over 10 year of age. At
the top of each invitation card was

"There was a lawyer, a minister,
and several prominent business men
among the guests, who came garbed
as boys; they called each other by
their front names, each brought a toy
and all entered heartily into children's
games. A picnic supper was served
on the floor in a room decorated with
small trees In tubs, ferns and palms.
This was supposed to be p. 'grove,'
and there were signs up like these:
'This way to the swimming hole.'
'Ix)ok out for the dog," etc. There was
stick candy, gum drops and heart mot
to candies. The women brought dolls
and plnytd 'Come to see' most natur
ally, as most of them had youngsters
to keep them In practise. We had a
spelling bee, and sung the songs of
our school days. The party went
down Into history as one of the best
the hostess had ever achieved, which
Is saying much, as she Is noted for
her original schemes."

Comfort in the Homes Sisters
Must Marry Before Their
Brothers Do.
To the Greeks,-If we are to believe
Ducke Ferrlman, the art of making a
home Is not known, which does not
necessarily mean that tho men of Hel
las lack the notion of "home" or dis
like it. They understand home life
otherwise than we do, that is all.
"One may meet with exquisite
cleanliness," Mr. Ferrlman states,
"with beautifully embroidered bed
linen scented with rosemary, but never
with what we mean by cozlness. . The
Greeks are far less In their houses
than we are, and when they are at
home they appear to spend most of
their time in looking out of the win
dow. They are not given to Inviting
their friends to their houses. It Is
not that they are niggardly, for they
will gladly entertain you at a restau
rant at far greater cost to themselves.
Hut It does not enter Into their Ideas
to ask you home to dinner, even after
an acquaintance of many years.
"They do not ask each other, so It
can hardly be expected that they
should make an exception In the case
of foreigners. The cafe Is a Becond
home to them. There they meet
friends and gossip. That is one rea
son, perhaps, why they dislike coun
try life.
"It offers no alternative to the home,
there the hearth Is the social center,
while in town It Is the cafe. In Ath
ens those who do not own the house
they dwell In seldom remain long In
the same abode. Two or three years
Is quite a long tenure. Many people
make a point of moving every year.
"The imposing facades of Athenian
houhes conceal for the most part a
bare and comfortless Interior, and a
well kept garden Is rare. ... A
garden Is not mado In a year, and a
person who changes his residence
every twelve months does not want
to be troubled with much furniture
nor Is he particular as to Its arrange
ment, seeing that it will be carted
away in a few months.
"Home life has no resources for the
Greeks as It has for us. It affords
them little occupation and no amuse
ment. They like to eat and drink In
crowds, where there Is noise and move
ment. . . . Their Instincts are too
gregarious to allow them to appreciate
the domestic Intimacy which we prize.
"The day chosen for marriage In
Greece Is usually Sunday, but the day
of all days In the year Is the Sunday
preceding the Christmas fast. It Is not
fashionable now to be married In
church. In Athens the ceremony
takes place In the house of the bride's
parents. A temporary altar is set up
in the middle of the room.
. "At the conclusion of the ceremony
the prieBt and the couple Join hands
and walk three times around the altar,
,the guests pelting them with comfits.
The most Important part of the cere
mony Is the crowning of the bride and
bridegroom with wreaths of orange
blossoms. Hence a wedding la popu
larly called 'the crowning.'
"I.ove marriages are rare excep
tions. The match Is made by the par
ents and relatives rather than by the
parties principally concerned
There are certain established usages
which though not legally binding are
not to he contravened with impunity.
"Then It Is considered wrong for
brothers to marry until their sisters
have been wed. Again girls must mar
ry in order of seniority. It would not
be right for a girl to be married while
she had an cider sister who remained
single. The men of a family are thus
naturally anxious to see their sisters
settlod, and as a dowry Is Indispensa
ble Its provision is often a matter of
serious anxiety and the fruit of great
self denial on the part of the brothers
If the parents are dead.
"There are cases In which brothers
have remained unmarried for years
anil have devoted all their hard earned
savings to the dowries of their sisters.

Our Voices.
I think our conversational soprano,
as sometimes overheard In the cars,
arising from a group of young persons
who have taken the train at one of
our great Industrial centers, for In
stance, young persons of the female
sex, we will say, who have bustled In
full dressed, engaged In loud, strident
speech, and who, after free discussion,
have Axed on two or more double
seats, which having secured, they pro
coed to eat apples and hand round
daguerreotypes I say, I think the
conversational soprano, heard under
these circumstances, would not be
among the allurements the old enemy
would put in requisition were he get
ting up a new temptation of St. An
thony. There are sweet voices among us,
we all know, and voices not musical,
it may be, to those who hear them
for the first time, yet sweeter to us
than any we shall hear until we listen
to some warbling angel In the over
ture to that etornlty of blissful har
monies we hope to enjoy. But why
should I tell HeB? If my friends love
roe, it Is because I try to tell the
truth. I never heard but two voices
In my life that frightened me by their

Add to Cost of Living.
The American Magazine reprints a
letter which was sent to the Massa
chusetts cost of living commission. It
goes as follows:
"It seems to me that the elimination
of waste Is nearly Impossible In house
holds where there are numerous serv
ants; at least, I have found it so,
with only one, and the waste rises in
geometrical progression with the num
ber employed. I have now been doing
my own cooking for nearly a year and
I feed my family twice as well on
about two-thirds the cost. A large
part of the saving comes In the eco
nomical use of meat. I make a de
licious dinner with a few scraps of
meat that a cook would give to the
"Then I depend a good deal on
soups, which I invent to suit my
larder. A few cold baked beans, with
a little tomato and a bit of meat on a
bone, or a little left over gravy, make
a soup that all eat with much pleasure
and It Is so nourishing that it goes fur
to make the dinner. Most people do
not understand how different a soup
Is when It has simmered a good many
hours. The soup that has been boiled
fast a couple of hours will taste flat
and uninteresting, whereas the same
soup five hours later will have such
a delicious blend of flavors that all
you know Is that It la nice without
being able to distinguish the-ingredients.
Again It Is time that counts.
Cooks waste the coffee and tea hor
ribly. Mix the coffee with cold water
the night before with an eggshell
and bring It to a boll In the morning

a good cup of coffee. The tea In the

thrown out with but little of the good
ness extracted. Another frightful
waste Is the coal. I use less than
half as much as any girl I ever had
and my stove bakes better. I never

Ramadan Is the month exalted by
Moslems above all others. In that
month the Koran according to Mos

from Mecca to the cave of Hlra, for
prayer and meditation, In that month
Abraham, Moses and other prophets

that month the "doors of heaven are

Fidelity to Parole.
Judge Craln of the Court of Gen-;
eral Sessions has Juat held a recep
tion more worthy of note than any
ball, banquet or other high function
of the season. It was held in his
courtroom at night. In response to
its summons came 117 men and wom
en, some old, some young every one!
of whom was a victor over some form
of temptation; an example of what
human faith can do to help human
weakness to redeem Itself and b
strong, ; 1
Each of the .company had been con
victed of some first offense against'
the law, and each bad been permitted
to go out on parol of future good
behavior.' Each bad kept th faith.
The word was as good aa a bond.'
Those who might have gone down in
the struggle had found a way to lis
and fight again. They were all able
to report good work dona and bright
prospect ahead. -
Time was when no on was trusted
on his word save men of high degree.
Fidelity to parole was deemed a
princely virtue. Perhaps It is. Thar
was nothing In Judga Craln' recent
Uon to disprove It.
What About Brain Food?
This Question Came Up in the Recent
Trial for Libel.
A "Weekly" printed some criticism of the
claims made for our foods. It evidently did
not fancy our reply printed in various news
papers, and brought suit for libel. At the trial
ome interesting facts cam out. .
Som of th chemical and medical expert
differed widely.
The following facts, however, were quit
clearly established: f
Analysts of brain by an unquestionable au
thority, Geoghegan, shows of Mineral Salts,
Phosphoric Acid and Potash combined (Phos
phate of Potash), 2 91 per cent of th total,
6.33 of all Mineral Salt.
This la over one-half.
Beaunia, another authority, showa 'Pboa
pborlo Acid combined" and Potash 73.44 per
cent from a total of 101.07.
Considerable more than one-half of Phos
phate of Potash. . t
Analysis of Grape-Nut showa: Potassium
and Phosphorus, (which Join and make Phos
pbat of Potash), Is considerable mor thaa
cue half of all th mineral salts In th food.
Dr. Geo. W. Carey, an authority on th con
stituent elements of th body, says: ' "Th
gray matter of the brain I controlled entirely
by th Inorganic cell-salt, Potassium Phosphate
(Phosphate of Potash). This salt unites wltb
albumen and by th addition of oxygen create
nerve fluid or th gray matter of th brain.
Of course, there I a trace of other salt and
other organic matter In nerve fluid, but Potas
sium Phosphate I th chief factor, and bas
the power within itself to attract,' by Ha own
law of affinity, all things needed to manufac
ture the olixlr of life."
Further on be says: "The beginning and end
of the matter Is to supply the lacking princi
ple, and in molecular form, exactly as natur
furnishes it in vegetables, fruit and grain.
To supply deficiencies this Is th only law of
The natural conclusion Is that If Phosphat
of Potash is th needed -mineral element la

it, you bsv brain Ug because IU daily loss 1

On th contrary. If you eat food known to
be rich in this element, you place bofor the

In th trial a aneer was uttered because Mr.
Post announced that he bad mad year of re
search in this country and some clinics of
Europe,, regarding th effect of th mind on
digestion of food.
But w' must be patient with those who
sneer at fact they know nothing about.

Therefore, the mental stats of th Individual
ha much to do (mor than suspected) with
digestion. . ..

That Brain I made of Phosphate of Potash

That Orapo-Nut contain that element aa

That part wblcb som folks believ links us to

Mind asks for a healthy brain upon which to

healthy brain and renew It day by day aa It
