Just the Same as
in Years Gone By New Orleans was ever famous for its food, its cuisine, and particularly its coffee. Travelers from all over the world smacked their lips over cups of delicious coffee bought at the stalls i; the old French Market. The old Creole mammies who learned how to make this coffee knew how to blend it and roast it, and then drip it so that the aroma would be preserved. The modern housewife can have the same kind of coffee. The making of drip coffee is easy to learn; in fact. most New Orleans families know how to do it very well, but the blending and roasting of coffee is an art. French Market Coffee is the famous old secret blend that made the coffee of the old New Orleans French Market famous in days gone by. You, in the comfort and convenience of your modern home, can have the same delicious coffee that the people of other days used to drink, if you will use French Market Coffee.

PFEIFFER (Copyright, 1920, Wester Newspaper Unioa.) "Coddllng, my dear-that is the sys temrn we are to employ with Cousin Roylston. The men all like it." "Is he really a cousin?" inquired Prudence Blake of her sister, a spin ster like herself, though ten years her senior. "Well, maybe third or fourth, re moved, but he hasn't many of near kin, and it is probably because of our re lationship, distant though it may be, that he has chosen our home to re cruit his health in." "Why, is he an invalid?" questioned the seemingly artless Prudence. "No, but he has been a victim of the prevailing grip epidemic and his doc tor said a few weeks' convalescence away from business cares was neces sary." "Yes, we must be helpful and kind to the sick and weak." sighed Pru dence pathetically. "You mean we must seize all golden opportunities," reported Dorcas tartly, valuing the simpering platitudes of her sister at their true worth. "Cousin Roylston is a man of means, a com paratively young man, and-who knows?" And Dorcas prepared to put her coddling system into practical operation, and Prudence hunted up her most captivating ribbons and laces. Ward Roylston heaved a sigh of relief anticipatingly of coveted peace and rest as he reached the isolated town of Clyde. "You do not look very well, Cousin," were the first encouraging words of Dorcas. "Our brother Ezra has just received his medical diploma and he j will call to look you over." 1 "Why, I am not sick," said Roylston. Wg We never know in a case like m yours," observed Dorcas in a dolorous tone. "They say the after effects are I sometimes very severe. But you will g have at hand faithful nurses." I Roylston made a wry face, unob , served by his offiieous relatives, when ( he sat down to his first meal. He was Shungry as an o., but cream toast, thin N gruel and a single poached egg were i proffered him. "Brother is very strict as to the g alimentary regime," droned Doreas r "Prudence be sure that Cousin Royl ( ston's room is ventilated just right and y a warming pan pressed between the sheets before he retires." And then came Brother Ezra, a cadaverous young man who gloomily kept his eye on oylsto as though he was analys Ing him with view to pretracted medl tl trneateLt shla sead om v .r .w musldmae I the morning." he announced sepuT chrally, "a few gargles and lotions." and lhe left a phial of pellets which Roylston promptly tossed out of the window when he reached his room. In the morning there arrived a pack age of counter-lrritants, lotions and the like, and all that day the sisters watchdl Itol,.ston with an assiduity and veheiretnr e that nearly drove him wild. To cap the climax. after dark Dorcas solemnly tendered a little package. "A blister Blrother Ezra seirt." she explainei.

He threw hack his head and hreathed deeply of air that seemed to set his pulses bounding with new life. What a sunset! What a night! What a git! Oh. Mary, you have certainly done your work well. Several hours later the professor entered his neglected study. and walk ing to the window viewed the midnight sky, but when he looked at the Milky Way he thought of a left-cheek dim ple that twinkled in and out. and eyes that outshone a whole galaxy of stars In the privacy of her room the wicked little plotter O!led to herself "All's well that ends weli," she quoted "though I really didn't reckon on tha" brook.

A new school costume for three large schools for girls in Tokio is re ported in a Japan society bulletin. The freshmen girls will have jackets fashioned of pink material and skirts of violet. The second-year girls will wear blue jackets and third-year maidens, in virtue of their greater maturity and advancing wisdom, will be privileged to have their coats cut from brown cloth. The Tokio schools making the change are the Girls Commercial school, the Yamawaki Girls' high school, and Atoul Girls' high school. Growth of the Cities.
