REALLY *i .VO CHAIRS IN ORE Piece of Furniture Is Rocker in One Position and Stationary When Inverted. From the number and variety of col lapsible convertible and combination chairs of all sorts that are on the mar ket, the designers would seem to have Jk ^ ached the end of their rope. Here comes a Californian, however, with an invertible chair which seems to be the simplest one of the lot. This is a combination rocker and standard chair, and all that is needed to trans form it from one to the other is to turn it upside down, or right side up, whichever way you like to regard it. The chair is shaped like a piece of * -mission furniture, and the rockers, which are short, serve as curved arms when it is stationary. They are pro tected when down by a metallic sheath, which also figures as an orna ment when they are up. The back is so made that it slides up and down in a groove and can be adjusted in whichever position is required. With al, the chair is a sturdy and attractive piece of furniture, and is likely to be popular on its merits. Onion Puffs. Make a good puff paste or light, flaky pie crust, roll thin, and cut it Into squares. Take as many white onions as there are to be guests and boil them in fair water until they commence to grow tender. Remove, drain and let cool a bit, then care fully cut out the center and fill the «pace with a half of a country saus age, butter, pepper and salt; fold each into a square of the pastry, adding as much tomato dressing as It will hold. Bake in a moderate oven. When done serve individually with the tomato sauce, to which a grating of Parme san cheese may be added. Garnfsh with thinly sliced green pepper. The First Cause. "I, sir," remarked the indignant cit izen, "am a taxpayer." "Well," re plied the political bosa, "you have me to thank. You wouldn't be nearly as much of a taxpayer as you are except ing for my efforts." DR. MINES, Veterinary Surgeon Office Gibbs' Livery Stable Office Phone 105.

The pancake turned with the long handle may be used to take light dishes from the open, and it will save many burns on the arm. After washing a China silk dress do not hang it out to dry, but roll It tip In a cloth for half an hour to absorb most of the moisture, and then Iron on the wrong side. Hemstitched tablecloths and nap kins can be nicely mended when the hemstitching breaks by fagoting the edges together with strong thread. This will wear as long as the article. If half a bottle of olives has been used and you wish to keep the rest, add a pinch of salt to the brine, pour a teaspoonful of olive oil into the liquid and replace the cork. Useful Hints. Rapidly boiling water cooks no fast er than thut which barely bubbles, but only evaporates faster. A little vinegar in the water in which a fish is boiling will prevent it falling apart. Cotton crepe stenciled with oil paint or stencil dye will wash beau tifully in Castile soapsuds. Crack Filler. When the housekeeper proceeds to take up her old carpets and put down ruga In their place the wide cracks in the floors may discourage her at first. But an inexpensive, easily made crack filler can be made by dissolving one pound of ordinary glue in a pint of boiling water. To this add enough sawdust to make it of a consistency to spread well. This is an excellent filling before varnishing the floor. Worst Enemy of Sheep. One of the worst enemies of sheep at the present time is that known by by sheep men as the stomach worm (strongylus contortus). This is a small red thread-like worm which In fests the fourth stomach and Is often found in such large numbers as to cause the death of the victim by act ual starvation. Buy Seed Corn Early. It Is best to buy seed corn early. Buy It In the ear and buy from a third to a half more than you really need for planting, so that ail inferior ears may be picked out and discarded. We usu ally buy three bushels and cull out one bushel and find that It pays in in creased yields. That which is culled out may be used for feed and is not a total loss. Philadelphia Ice Cream. Allow a quarter of a good vanilla bean and seven ounces of sugar tc each quart of cream. Split the bean In halves, scrape out the seeds and mix them with the sugar. Cut the pod into small pieces, add to it one-half the cream, add the sugar and stir in a double boiler over the fire until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved and the cream hot. Strain and stand aside to cool. When cold add the remaining cream, turn the mixture into the freez ing can, pack and turn rapidly until the mixture begins to freeze, keeping the motion perfectly even. Turn more slowly for a few moments, remove the dasher, repack and stand aside for two hours to mellow. (T E.M.Kennedy AUCTIONEER Will be glad to date you for a Real Estate Sale or General Farm Sale.

DeKay A20-2t a GOOD ROAD ERA HAS BEGUN Once Constructed, Highways Should Be Looked After Regularly—Dust Preventative Is Needed. The good road era has begun In many states, and already the steam roller, the piles of crushed rock along the roadside and the digging out of the original roadway are familiar sights in many of the eastern states. The roads built are generally of approved macadam construction, which, com pleted, are perfect strips of white rib bon running through the green fields and hills of the rural sections. These roads are perfectly built, and as soon as completed the farmers and other ratepayers contentedly sit back and exclaim: "These roads are now good for a generation or more without trouble." This is a serious error, and one being made in many states. That it is an error is borne out by the dust cloud raised by a passing car travel ing at 20 miles per hour, or perhaps faster. Many fall to realize that whenever dust is raised a road is being de stroyed, says the Motor Age. This is particularly the case on smooth mac adam surfaces, where there is nothing to hold the dust on the road, and where every cross wind blows off any loose material. As soon as roads are built arrange ments should be made to keep them in repair. With roads it is essentially "A stitch in time saves nine." Some dust preventative should be used immedi ately macadam roads are completed, in order to prevent dust. OH, tar and 1 many special prepara tions are now on the market, and the communities should be educated to looking upon these additions as a le gitimate part of the road maintenance. California has Its oiled roads over which motoring is a pleasure to the motorist and not a dust-bath to the cit izen who happens to be on the road the same day, or who has the misfor tune to reside along a well-traveled highway. Massachusetts proved last year that road treatments are a success and more economical than continuous ap plications of water; and in England dust preventing Is always considered a part of the road problem. Thoughtless. "Which," asked the court jester, "came first, the chicken or the egg?" "Really," replied the monarch, wear ily, "you should know better than to bring these questions of precedence to my personal attention. You know that they are entirely looked after by officials appointed for that purpose." Teaching the Colt. The colt should be taught to respect I the whip and It will never be worn out on him.
