lMaking Jelly "Jell."
Experimenters in the federal
home economics office recently
had a quart of grape juice which
refused to become jelly. A small
amount of apple pectin was added
to it and a firm, fine flavored
grape jelly was -obtained. A
whole shelf full of jeily failures
were soon oonverted into success
eesy applying the new discovery.
Pectin is what makes fruit
"jell." Some fruits, like straw.
berries and pears do not contain
enough pectin for the operation,
but by the addition of pectin
from another fruit the jelly is I
easily made. Other fruit like
quince and grape contain suffi
cient pectin, but have juices that
will bear diluting with water if
extra pectin is used, so that more
jelly will result, Pectin may be i
extracted from apples and citrus
fruits and kept ready to add to
other fruits which lack this ingre.
dient, As fruit ripens it loses 3
some of its pectin; hence the cus. t
tom of using fruit that is not very
ripe, when jelly is to be made. t;

grocer of this city, "It 1s without
doubt the best liver medicine, and I
don't believe I could get along without
It. I take it for sour stomach, head
ache, bad liver, indigestion, and all
other troubles that are the result of
a torpid liver.
"I have known and used it for years,
and can and do highly recommend it
to every one. I won't go to bed with

claims to do. I can't say enough for

to secure one or two big cases, which
promised to turn out extremely well.

Swrite, we'd be worse off than ever." A
B Mr. Jack smiled, and went on his
way. Then, one afternoon, his office
' maill brought an envelope stamped
with the name of a certain magazine.
t It wasn't a long, thick envelope, but a
short, thin one, and it contained some
Sthing which mnade his heart beat furl- "
D otsly.
That night, at the supper table, he
' broached the subject to his wife.
1 "Do you remember that 'Final Pay'
g Imient' story?" he asked,
, "Yes." She showed little interest,
"Well, I sent it to a magasine about
two months ago."
t "You did?"
"Yes, and I heard from thetm today."
"They kept it a little longer than
u1suial." $he changed the subject. "I
went by the house this afternoon,"
Mr. Jack frowned. It seemed to him
that his wife still had little faith in
his literary powers. Which was true,
"And someone was looking at it,
Mis. Jack continued. "I went to the j
agent and he said he had a fine chance
to sell it."
"Well," Mr. Jack arose from the
table. "I think I'll go down to the club
for a while, I'll be back before nine."
In an hour or so he returned, smiling
When he mine home the next eve*

"Oh, Jack," Bhe cried, "the little
house is sold."
"Who bought itt" There was a happy
light in his eyes.
"The agent wouldn't tell me. But
the person defiosited the money last
night, and now we've lost it for good."
"Well, that's too bad," Be was ap
pnrently indifferent. "I'm going to
write some more tonight,"
"Oh!" She turned away anglrily. "I
hate your old writings. If you had at.

had enough money to buy the house
"I'm sorry, dear." Touched by the ,
keen disappointment in her voice, he
led her to the wicker couch. "Do you
know who bought the house?"
"I told you I didn't." She was still

They didn't bother about supper that
evening, but walked together to the lit'
tie house on the hill. After they had
explored every nook and corner to
their heart's content, Mrs. Jack turned
with beaming eyes to her husband.
