A Woman Speaks.
Help me, God, to keep before my
eyes
The larger vision of this war to
be
Inspired each day by noble thoughts
that rise
Of duty, honor, country and ot
Thee
Lest I forget and think of only one
Who goes from me, to Bee the duty
done.
Help me to think ot war as one vast
whole
Of human effort, struggling toward
the right
Ever advancing nearer to the goal
Of freedom, from the Iron rule of
might,
Lest I forget and in my sorrow see
Only the face of him who goes from
'. me. Z-
Let me remember on the fateful day
When women send their men
across the sea
That with brave smiles on trembling
lips they Bay
"God bless and bring yon safely
back to me."
Help me, O God, In that black hour,
I pray.
Lest I forget to be as brave as they.

You can prepare the entire meal In
fortyjfive minutes, using only cold wa
ter, without lighting the top burners
at all.
The Oven Heat Regulator is*
a simple but wonderful device
that enables you to select any
oven temperature by merelys
turning a marked wheel.
This wheel is marked in the
ordinary terms of baking heats
that you are familiar with,
such as "Slow," "Moderate,"
etc. It is also marked with the
degrees of heat that these
names stand for.
Thus you can set the wheel
and obtain any heat you wish
either by name or degree.
Any person that can read,
even a child can set the wheel
for any desired temperature
with more precise results than
can be obtained by the most
skilled cook.
The Regulator cuts out the
guess work.
Simply set the wheel at "Very Slow"
light the burner and let th'e meal cook
for hours while you enjoy the after,
