Cardinal Newman. WASHINGTON BIRTHDAY ENTER TAINMENTS. Tho colors to be used for this day'a celebration are the national ones, of course. For placo cards ono might use small hatchets cut from card board, and for decoration a small head of Washing ton under two crossed flags for the ladles, and Martha Washington's head with same setting for tho men. One can buy tho penny pictures of any celebrity and do tho decoration one'B self. It is alwajs so much more appreciated and gives a touch of orig inality to any entertainment to have these little favors made at home. A very pretty decoration for tho candle shades, simple, too, is to cut tho shades out of cardboard, small holes tho size of cherries, and a leaf or two in good arrangement, then pasto back of tho perforations red pa per behind the cherries, and green behind the leaves. When the candles are lighted tho design Is strikingly pretty. If one cares to carry out the war like spirit of tho tlme3 of "Washing ton, chops prepared French style ano, stood on tho side as cannon, surround ed with cannon balls In orderly plleB made of sausage, Is good.

During tho cold winter months our bodies are able to assimilate heavier food. Many foods combine both to nourish the tissues and warm the body, and it Is these foods which are now of especial interest to tho house wife who is planning meals for her family. Cereals aro a valuable food, as they are both tissue builders and beat pro ducers. Lean meat and a goodly por tion of fat, milk, eggs and cereals with as many kinds of vegetables as are procurable, will make a well ar ranged diet. Buckwheat Is heating and should only bo eaten during tho cold weath er, as it Is especially a cold weather food. Pork Is heavy, hearty and hard of digestion, so should be largely eat en during cold weather, when exer cise and work will help to eliminate tho waste. Tho age, sex, physical condition and occupation is a great factor In de termining tho diet at any season. Members of tho family who do not get much bodily exorcise, but whoso brain 1b taxed, should have food ensy ot digestion as well as nourishing and should have food that Is especially good for tho blood. To keep up tho bodily energy, sup ply heat and build up waste tissues wo need starchy food, sugars, butter, cream, as well as meat and fats. Macaroni and cheese Is a combina tion, with tho whlto sauce used, which gives ono a dish of solid food. To cook macaroni, drop tho inch pieces Into rapidly boiling water and boll gently until perfectly tender. Tho test for tenderness Is to take out a piece, press with the sido of a fork; if tender, It will bo easily cut Put a layer of tho cooked macaroni Into a buttered bnklng dlsb, pour over a Ht tlo white sauce mado of rich milk nnd thickened with buttor and flour cooked together. Season and sprinkle with a generous layer of cheese, and if ano feelB able at this season of tho year, -a hard-boiled egg or two cut In olghthB, then follow with an other layer ot macaroni and chceso and white sauce, sprlnklo a teaspoon tul of onion julco over, cover with white sauco and finish with buttered crumbs. Bake until well boated. EN will talk of llttla things and great things as If they knew what things wero little and what things wero great! Phillips Brooks.

Never try to crowd a largo roast Into a small bag, for It will surely burst If tho bag has a seam In tho center, as some makes have. It should be UBCd with tho seam side up, then If It bursts tho contents can bo saved. Broiled Steak. Placo tho steak in a well-greased bag. OUvo oil or suet for greasing Is good. Placo on the oven rack In a hot oven, and bake for fifteen or twenty minutes. The steak will bo done to n turn, with all the delicious gravy retained. For a breakfast that appeals to the taste for novelty, this 13 worth trying: Put a cup of thick, strained tomato, well seasoned, Into a buttered bag, put; Into a hot oven, and after ten minutes' draw out and cut a square from tho center of tho bag; Into this drop four eggs, brokon carefully. Cook for three to four minutes and servo from tho bag with only the top cut away. A Delicious Breakfast Dish. Tako cold mashed potatoes left from dinner, malco into fiat cakes and on each place a cake of sausage; placo in a greased bag, put into a hot oven and cook fif teen to twenty minutes. Liver and Bacon. Liver and bacon Is always a highly appreciated dish. Slice a pound of tender calf's liver, dip each piece Into seasoned flour, and place each pleco of liver on a rasher of bacon. Greaso the bag, put in the liver and bacon and cook for twenty flve minutes. Open tho bag and slip out the meat gently on a very hot dish. Jam buns aro a saving of trouble and an easy dessert. Split several buns, dip In hot milk, spread with but ter and add a Httlo preserves or jam to each; place in a buttered bag until thoroughly hot Serve with fruit juice, cream and sugar or without any sauce. For a dinner, in which all tho vege tables and meat are cooked together In one bag, nothing could be simpler. RUE courage Is not Incompat ible with nervousness; and he roism does not mean the absence of fear. but tho conquest of It. Van Dyke. Lite Is mostly froth and bubble. Two things stand like stone; Kindness In another's trouble, Courago In your own. A. L. Gordon. A VALENTINE LUNCHEON.
