UNCLE HIRAM TO FIS NEPHEW His Dissertation on the One Priceless Treasure Which All Men Share Alike. "Steven. my boy," said Uncle Hiram, "one man m,:y have more talent than anotler or more courage or more money, but there is one thing that no man on earth can have any more of than you ha e. and that is time "Did you ever stop to think of that? Or maybe you haven't come to it yet that of the most precious thing of all the same being. I repeat, time. no body. no matter who he is, can have any more than you have There can't be any favoritism or special privilege or gouging or monopoly in time You get what's coming to you anyway, and 11o man on earth can take it away * from you. "And isn't this something to be cheerful oter? Why. Stevey it's the granc.st thing going to think that of the most valh:..hle thing of all we've got as much as the man that rides by us in a $10.000 automobile But. and lnow I'ji getting down to ~hie sermon, Stevey, this most precious thing of all is the thing of which we are most wasteful. "We get our full share of it sure but we Waste it ourselves shockingly "Don't waste time. Stevey. please don't. As you feel now you've got a million years ahead of you, more or less, plenty of time; but time is one of those things that once lost can never be recovered. Don't waste a fminute of it When you play, play; eink the shop; forget it utterly; but when you work utilize all your time Don't dawdle it away" -'------~ 0~ -- Great Chance for This Judge's Wife. A New York court has established to ruling that no woman's dress car ties a money value after it has been worn ten times. The decision was made in a fire insurance suit whereby the plaintiff sought to recover the full value of clothing destroyed. In ad nitting that the' clothing had been worn mcre than ten times the plain tiff lost her case, for the court gave her but a trifling sum. Whew! What an opportunity for that judge's wife! She might hang a tally sheet by her wardrobe door with the record of every wearing of every garment. "Ten times and out" might become her slogan. If she chose, she could have a new dress or two or three pew dresmse efiry te1 da- accoriding to the number' of times she wishes to change her clothes in a day's time. Perhap8 at the end o a month the judge mlght come to the conclusion that after all a dress has some money value after it has been worn ten times, Motor Maps. In countries like France, where roads are good and cross roads nu* merous, travelers by automobile have Sfrequent occasion to consult road maaps, because they go so fast and change direction so often that topo graphical information is, for them, a continual necessity. To meet this there has been invent ed an automatic chart that unrolls in: step with the advance of the carriage, so that the chauffeur has always be, tore him a map of the route he is to pursue. When the road is about to turn sharply an electric bell gives warning 300 meters in advance. An ,ther attachment to the chart regis taers the distance traversed. The Wrhole apparatus is moved by gearing g onnected with the wheels of the au Staomaobile.

NEVER DREW AN INFERENCE Coachman, However, Thought the Horses Could Draw One If the Traces Held. A young clergyman who had deliv ered a discourse in the place of an aged brotbh, minister requested the opinion of the latter respecting it. "Oh," said he, plainly. "many of the words you used were beyond the cor prehension of your hearers. Thus, for instance, the word 'inference'--per ha'i not half of my parishioners un derstand its meaning." "Inference, inter'tce!'" exclaimed the other. ''Why, everyone must un derstand that." "I think you will find It not so There's my clerk, now. He'prides him self upon his learning, and, In truth. is very intelligent. We will try him Zacharlah, come hither Zacharlah, my brother here wishes 'ou to draw an inference; can you do it?" "Why, I am pretty strong, but John the coachman, is stronger than L I'll ask him." Zacharlah went out for a few me ments to look after the coachman, and returned. "John says he never tried to draw an Inference. sir; but he reclkons his horses can draw anything that the traces will hold!" AN OASIS .-:IN--.Ii THE DESERT OF HEAT Always Cool, Always Neat!

In the beginning they found amusement by playing at a primitive form of it with small fiat stones they had marked with spots to designate them. When a game was finished the winner was wont to declare his victory by reciting the first line of the vesper service- '"Dixit Dominus Domino meo." Be fore long all of the monks in the mon eatery found recreation tn the game, and presently the vesper liie was cut down, for brevity's sake, to, the one word "Domino," thus furnishing the name which has clung to the gapme ever since. :aioin. r.i , -.' -,,, ' , '.1 r i 'tlc ,, 25, A Judge of Wine. .George C.

PRACTICAL BAKING LESSO PAFER DAG COOKERY Cooking in Paper Bags, f.r meat, vegetable pastries is becoming so popular that recipes lfo method are gceatly in demand. Many arrdtlesare improved by usi :g pz:;p'r bags. One can buy the cially prepared bags at all grocers in assorted s very smail cost. Below I wjil give you a few which I have found' ar:e much fi::cr in t.e bags S baked in the open oven. A__ I T' ,. o Apple Durplngs " 'Paper LaddeJ 2 cups sifted paatrv ,our 3i teaspoonful salt 2 level teaspoonlfu:a . ( Baking Powder About V to 1 CUp milk . cup shortening Cinnamon or nutnme Sugar Sift together, three times, the flour, l:ak-i ing powd::r and salt: wik in t-ie .hrteii:g and mix to a dough with milk as neo.h'i; roll into a squareo shet one-third iieri tLdck and cut into four pieces. Lay a cored and pared apple on each piece, fill the center with sugar and cinnamon, then draw un the dough to covcr the epple; make smooth and place in a well-buttered p:aper bag, gving plenty of space in the bag for the dumpling ; to rise. In using the bags, oil the eutir'. inner surface, have the a s lam side up and pin mouth of the bag sceurely. Place the, bag on a shallow pan. Ilave a. slow ov,.n when the bag is placed in the oen and increase heat later. I find the rmost fre quent mistake in using bans is to have the oven too hot. It takes much less heat to bake in a paper bag than in the open oven. To determine when the apple dumpling is baked, make a small hole in the top of the bag and test with a fork. You will find apple dumplings baked in bags are delicious, the pastry being very light and soft. Se often apple dumplings baked in the old way in the open oven have a very hard crust. Serve dumplings with cream or lEard Sauce, Hard Sauce Beat half a cup of butter to a cream, gradually beat in one cup of sugar and press into a dom' shape on a glass or china plate. Crate a little nutmeg over the top. Beef Roll In Paper Bags 3 cups flour 1 teaspoonful salt JJ cup shortening Sweet milk 2 beaten eggs Grating of onion 3 level teaspoonfuls K C Baking Powder 1 cup each, chopped cooked beef and ham 1 teaspoonful mixed mustard 34 teaspoonful each, salt and pepper Broth or water Mix a biscuit dough of the flour, salt, baking powder, shortening and milk, and 1 roll into a sheet half an inch thick, having t o ends even. Mix the other ingredients . themselves, using liquid as needed to make a paste. Spread the paste over the dough and rol like a jelly roll. Other cooked meats may be used in the same way. Often we have several different i kinds of cold meats left, with not enough of any one kind for a particular purpcse. Onesl can use these several kinds putting them through the food chopper, using two cups of this choppqd meat, seasoning as desired. For baking in the paper bag prepare the bag as for apple dumplings and bake by t same rules. Serve with a brown gravy.

Use only bags especially - cooklng. 2. Always grease the entire inside fatce of the lag for meats and pastri-a 3. Lay bag on the pan scam eide. 4. Always pin the mouth of the securely. 5. In a gas oven place the 1ba grate of the broiler pan, p broiler pan in the upper oven. 6. Above all don't have a hot it burns the bag and makes it bittle easily broken. Have a slow even for bag cooking. Remember food in bags will cook more quickly and less heat. 7.
