Keep the Coffee Pot Clean
This may seem like useless advice but it is a fact that a good many housewives, in spite of their cleanliness, do not cleanse the coffee pot as thoroughly as it should be done. You cannot have good coffee unless the pot is scrupulously clean. Have your coffee pot scrubbed and cleansed frequently. - After using the coffee pot each time let it stand for a while under a running faucet. 'With an absolutely clean coffee pot and using FRENCH MARKET COFFEE you will have no difficulty in mak ing good coffee.

CUPPED LOCKS CALLED FOR Present Day Emphatically No Time for Anything Approaching Ef feminaney In the Male. A ~iltish brigadier general and kfo seer Etonlan was recently Invited to Visit his old school and inspect the oeifcers' training camp that Institution maintains. The officer was delighted with the bearing of the 600 and more young officers of the future and praised them till their necks grew pink with suppressed pride, but-in concluding his remarks the general spoiled it all by the direst of crlticisms--Thelr hair was too long " It was wrong, he said, for a Briton to allow his hair to grow so long that he could not see to fight. General Corkern-that was his name--thea went into detail and said he had seen a smmber of the college boxers in set toe the previous evening and many of them appeared in the ring with long locks neatly plastered back from noble brows. After the first round. however. the spectacle was different, since the boys looked out as well as possible through a smoke barrage of dank, stringy locks that cut off their own view but did not In the least hinder the enemy's attack. "Cut 'em short, boys a" was his Injuaction. Regardless of peace assurances from the League of Nations, Britain is deo termined not to sink back into military unpreparedness, and If the general's criticism may be taken in a wider sense the entire island must keep its locks close trimmed and not again be blinded by vanity and self-satisfaction to what is going on In neighboring countries. Long hair may be esthetic and may prove attractive to the opposite sex through contrast, since the ladies themselves are going in for short hair and self-determination, but the time for Iuxury and long male locks has not yet come, even if there has been a momentary let-down of masculine morale following the cessation of ae tual hostilities. We have seen as yet no symptoms of longhairedness among our own American youth, and trust we may not do so, especially since, although it is defnitely over over there, it is by no means done on this side of the Atlantle. The readjustment, unless all signs fall, is going to require quite as clear and close-cropped polls as did the conquest of the Hun. On the other bhand, it must be re membered that longhalredaess is em blematle of anarchy and bolshevism and of those visionaries who out of their fringed locks see society as through a glass, darkly.
