A Lesson from the Past
Years ago, before baking pow
ders were so well known, the
housewife sometimes made her own
from cream of tartar and soda.
These materials were then
comparatively expensive and pro
cesses of refining had not been
devised to bring them to the high
state of purity of the present
day well known cream of tartar
"baking powders, such as Royal
and yet she never thought of
buying alum, then as now a cheap
,and inferior substitute for cream
of tartar. She wouldn't think of
permitting an ounce of alum to
enter her kitchen.
Yet housekeepers "are to-day
asked to buy alum baking powders
with which to make food for their
The statement on the label af

ingredients of which the baking
•powder is composed affords a

Pussy Kitten and Bunny Knbbit
Pussy Kitten rail away one day.
He was tired of playing in thie barn
and often looked thirooigihi the yard
fence to the green woods whlkiU
looked so ccol and inviting.
'Hia mother had told liirn that
it was not safe for little kittene
especially for little wihfite kittens to
venture into thie g/een woodB alone,
and would not allow him to leaive
the yardt.
TV) be sure theie was the Wig barm
where he could play all dlay It had
plenty of queer nooks and corners
for liJm to explore and the yard
was big and green with several
trees and bushes fcr shlade.
IBut Pussy Kitten was tired of
these things and longed to go to
itihe green woods. So one day when
Ihis mother was asle?p he slipvicd
itbirough a hole in the fence and
scampered away.
Btunny Rabbit saw him. as he ran,
and at eight of Pussy Kitten's long
'graceful tail he was filled with en
vy, for Bunny Rabbit had only a
little s'ub of a tail.
"My, what a handsome tail that
•creature has," id he from hiis
liiiding p'ace beh.ind a rock "and lie
is white all over, too. 1 wish I had
a tail I ke tl.at. 1 wonder if I could
get him to part with it."
Bunny Rabbit was a little afraid
of Pussy Kit'en, so he hopped jiut
a little winy from his h.iding place
and said: "Gocd day this is fine
weather we are having."
Pussy K't'eai shopped jumping a
bout and playing with the dry leavs
and looked at the curious creature
wiith the long ears. His mother's
warning flashed through his mind
and he turned and ran to the top
of a rock ard humped his back.
^9 the queer long-eared creaturt
li not come nearer or offer to mo
le him Pussy Kitten said: "I ran
away, did you?"
"1 run away all the time," answer
ed Bunny Ribbit, "Don't you?"

When little Kenneth came home
from liool his mother was waiting
for him at the corner of the street.
"I can't be at home to eat din
ner with you," she Baid, "but I have
left it on. thie table ready for you. I
am sorry tihiat I did not have time
to fttnd uomje one to stay withi youu"

Ke inetih was so:ry too. They luad
moved into a new neighborhood and
his v. as not yet acquainted with any
one. He dreaded the long afterncom
for hi? was too small to go to sci..ocl
in thie iifternoon.
TT: houses in the row where he
lived were all alike with neat rooms
and a large airy porch,.
Kenneth went through the house
into the dining room and seated
himself at the talble. The table was
•laid fcr two. There was a plate of
tiny cakes, a pat of golden butter,
some slices of bread, cold meat ar
ranged on lettuce leaves and a
smiili aes bowl of quivering crimi
son jelly.
"Mamma dlid not have time to
eat luncbleon" hie thought as he
put on h,!s napkin.
A scund made hiim look around
a \oman and little girl were in thie
back of the room looking at h,yn.
'"Why, why"—he began. "Won't
you me end lurch with nie" he
sa'd "Mother had to go away but
s'.ie le't everything ready".
The l: dy laughed softly. Then the
trr.tli flashed upon him. Thjis wasnt
his heme and he had taken posses

Hiis face burned and liis legs felt
