Of course, French Market Coffee has been on sale in New Orleans longer than any other brand of coffee, but this isn't the real reason you can find it every where today.

"It is, as you see, a deaf and dumb instruction book, quite common hereabouts, for we come into contact with our afflilcted charges so generally that a. knowledge of the finger signs makes it quite easy for us to make ourselves understood and to understand the patients." Two days before the dance Adsit was called away to another town. At first Ronald decided not to attend the function. lie got looking over the al phahbt hook. however, was enticed by the novelty promised. found it not ditti cult to mnacter the rudiments of the code, and Thursday evening found him seated in the capacious dining ronom of the asylumn which was very prettily decoratel as a dant.ing hall. lihnald's attention was particularly attr:cted by a young girl iwho seemed friendly with everyhody, and she was welcomenl with a fervor that showed she w:.s a gteneral favorite. Itonald nment:ally confessed that he had never viewed a more he: eutifll face. She was Ia model of neatness, a:nd the grace she diisplaye.md amid the giddy whirl was somethin: to rerniember. It was after be had- followaia ler witb a miring gaze through several dances that Ronald observed her seated alone and approached her. "'May I hope for the favor of one dancer he translated, a mute sen tence he had especially mastered. The young lady responded with a number of rapid finger signs, her ex pressive eyes and gracious smile Indi cating that his plea met with acqul escence. The pathos of sino:ere pity for this afflicted young lady was obsscured after that as he recalled the lovely face that had so completely captivated him. Ionaldl waited impatiently for a return of Adsit. It was the third morninz after the dance that I onald was :lllictced with a ro;.ncind fit and took his automobile for a spin out the cocluntry roads. II, was returning at a smnart rate of speed along a rather rutty and Irregular one. At a part of it where a sharp curve ahead showed, from the direction of n pretty home sheltered by sontic grani;d cIl trees, he ctserved a lithe. girlish fig ure hnrrying towardk its gateway. She wore, a blue cape and ewas waving her bands In an excited manner, and Rona ald thrilled as he recognized her-his brief partner of the asylum dance. "Stop-don't go on! The road--" Ronald caught the token of peril in the manner of the girl, rather than in the words. He put on the brakes, but not until he had turned the curve to see ahead a great gap in the road guarded by a plank atretclhed length wise, hearing In chalk the ominous wnrtniic: "I)ANI;R--hlook out!" A false turn of the whoel sent the machine skidding. it struck a deep rut and ha:ltd, t. ut so sudld.ely that Ron alid was lifted bodily from the s.at and thrown down a slight incline. at the boftt ot of which he landed lnmomenta rily Insensible. HI1e aroused omne' few minutes later to find himself prostrate. and un der his head was a pillow formed of the blue cape, and standing pensively over him with a concernied face was the beautiful girl of the dance. In stantly her hadls were in motloD. "Are you hurt much?" signaled forth the allhabetienl signs. "Put you spoke a few minutes ago!" exclaimed Ronald, csttlng up. a The young girl flushed. "I-I had met you before," she stammered. "I thought you were a patient at the asy S i lum, or an ntflleted visitor. Many outsiders come to thl-- dnces,. Just t as I do. In fact.

We frequently read of the capable and systematic housewife who, having an unexpected group of friends drop In, goes to her fee chest or pantry and greets a cold fowl, a hunch of celery, a jar of mayon naise, which she quickly prepares into a most delectable salad. With rolls, cake, coffee and pre serves she sets before her guests a most dntinty luncheon. This reads well, but the simple fact is this preaching Isn't sanctioned by practice, for most women in such an emergency do not meet a cold cooked fowl face to face, but a bare cupboard and the necessity of hbeginning with the flour barrel, rather than a well stocked larder, to prepare a menl. Anyhody. efficient or otherwise, with a well-stocked pantry might prepare an acceptable meal, but the woman who finds a dish of cold potatoes, flanked by a tough and world-weary steak. and still looks out on life cheerfully, is both an optimist and a genius. To fortify this optimism an emer gency shelf Is Indispensable. Even where the corner grocery is near or the telephone at hand one cannot al ways provide for an emergency. Each housekeeper will stock her shelf with the foods, accessories and relishes es pecially adapted to her needs. A few cans of fish such as salmon, tuna, sardines and lobster, which may be served hot, cold or In salads or In combination with vegetables as a main dish, cans of corn, beans, peas, cans of soup. olives, pickles, a jar of salad dressing, a bottle of nutmegs. with jel lies, Jams and a package or two of crackers and a jar of cheese. When any food Is used it is replaced at the earliest opportunity, so that the sup ply will always be full for the chance guest. Two or three kinds of cookies sto ied In air-tight jars will keep for a long time. A few cookies with a dish of truit, a cup of tea or coffee Is a des sert which is sufficiently satisfying for the most exacting. The fortunate ones who live In the .ountry and have plenty of milk. cream, b~tter and eggs. find It easy to pre pare delicious dishes In short order. Memorial to Great Scientist.
