The routine duties of the wife and mother are the same in practically all homes. Food has to be purchased and prepared: the house has to be kept clean a.nd in order; there is shopping to be done, atso sewing, mending and washing—a big item in families with young children—and there are the children. ' + HOUSEHOLD HINTS * Creamed potatoes with cheese make a pleasant change. Dried corn is much more excellent than canned corn. Egg stains may be removed from spoons by common salt. If curtains do not draw easily, rub the pole with paraffin. Cold slaw may be improved by cupful of chopped celery. Onions stuffed with minced ham are a good luncheon dish. Eggs in potato nests are a good substitute for eggs on toast. When baking sweet potatoes melt a little lard and grease them all over. This toughens the skin and they will not crack or burst. When cooking rice, if it is wanted very dry, use just enough water to cover rice. After it begins to swell, sprinke with boiling water and it will be perfectly dry and well done. KJeep a number of small safety, pins on hand. When an eye unex pectedly comes off a garment and there is no time to sew one on, try this: Insert a small safety pin the under side of the goods, leaving just enough of the pin exposed on top to slip the hook into it as a loop Yarn that has been used and rav eled out may be revived to look like new by steaming. Wrap the yarn in a cloth and place it in a steamer the required time and it will be as fluffy as ever. A colander set over a pan of hot water will answer the same purpose. MIDWAY ITEMS. H. A.

The Home Atmosphere. One of the most helpful factors the harmonious development of mother-and-child life is a right atti tude of mind. It is, of course, most desirable that it be.one of content mont and peace; but too often moth ers, in addition to the work of house keeping and the bearing and rearing of children, ire obliged to contend with problems cf sicknes® and familv j disagreements.

Almost all children have wooden blocks of one kind or another to phy with and they scarcely need to be shown what to do with them. They love to make such things as houses, trains, trolley cars, buildings, bridges, and furniture. Any materials that lend themselves to representation of this kind are a delight to children. Kindergarten tablets (round, square oblong and triangular pieces of wood of the dimension of one inch) can lie used for representing many things; also colored sticks and slats of differ ent lengths, and seeds of different varieties.

Kelly is Owner. The people of Caldwell know that Mr. and Mrs. P. V. Kelly, formerly of this city, now residents of Salt Lake City, were great lovers of dogs. Mr. Kelly had taken a great interest in breeding and developing thoroughbred bulldogs. The Salt Lake Tribune of January 12th contains a large cut of "Mel bourne Major" now owned by Mr Kelly and the following account of the famous English bulking. The English bulldog. Melbourne Major, A. K. C. S. B. 2,1192.1, was pur chased from the renowned Melbourne kennel of New York by Paul V. Kellv. 1121 First avenue, his present owner, who has bred m.iny other excellent bulldogs, including Lady K.. A. K C. S. B. 189568, winner of five frist prizes at Boise, Idaho, and reccntiv purchased by F. C. Richmond of this city. The antiquity of the bulldog breed is unquestionable, and it has always been peculiar to the British Isles, the Spanish variety having originally be procured from Britain. The modern bulldog has undergone a change in appearance during the last fifty years, being now decidedly neater in shape, better in 'conforma tion and true to type, if one is to judge from the portraits handed down. He has often been described as feroc ious. but this is not correct. He is an excellent watch dog, »a guard tin equaled, and is far from being quar relsome by nature. < . . It is commonly thought that the En glish bulldog cannot fight on account of the formation of his jaws, which is also far from true. Two remarkable features arc met with in this breed. First, they always make their attack on the head; and, secondly, they do not bite and let go their hold, but retain it in the most tenacious manner and frequently suf fer themselves to be dismembered be fore they will let go their hold. During the past fifteen years Utah has had a number of breeders of Eng lish bulldogs, the most prominent being Frank J. Chamberlain. H e is not only a breeder, but he is also known from New York to San Fran cisco as an exhibitor of good dogs. He has also imported direct from England the renowned dogs Cham pion Leone Doctor, Champion Leone Hazlewyn, Crumpsall Hazel, Rufus Penfold and Deodora Doctor. As every breeder knows, it is an ex pensive hobby to breed and raise good dogs, to say nothing of express charges, insurance, show fees, etc.. when shipping dogs to exhibitors, east or west, and should the lucky one HOLT SEED CO. 7 j I C'lA: ' * i PHONE 25 CA '//A ELL *fy LDW BUYERS Seeds and Grain OF SEE US BEFORE SELLING aiiamcu ( mm W * to 0 8 0)0001 win h c receives a silver cup, the in trinsic valu«* of which "froiikl not pay the express.cli arges many miles on the journeyi Then the puppies are so hard to r^iae. a big peT<çntagé dying at birth, but there is glory in winning a championship under American Kennel club rules, and honor in breeding a good one.
