No Food Takes Place of Potato, Says Department of Agriculture Bulletin j "There is no food which exactly I tp': the place of the potato when one i af' js;o! w to it." snys a stutemnt issued by the Uiutf;! State'- depart-1 Meat vi agricultkire. u.ir::1.? an in- creased consumption vZ this vegetable, ! ; ri'v; thct the markets of the country . are well supplied. ! "It has come to be such a part of our dinner that we miss It when It Is not served. Besides, any left-over po tato can be used in many very pala table ways for breakfast or supper, and this Is a convenience from the housekeeper's standpoint, since it helps her to make palatable meals. Not only is It useful from the ease with which it can be prepared and the number of palatable ways in which It can be served, but it is very important for the food mnterial It supplies. It is one of the most wholesome sources of starch, and Is also fairly rich in the mineral matter which the body needs. Of the mineral salts one must not overlook the importance of the mild alkaline salts it contains, because these are greatly needed by the body to counterbalance the add salts which meats and eggs produce when assimi lated. In this we have a justification of the use of potatoes In the diet In liberal quantities and of our common custom of serving them with meats. Whoa the price permits potatoes s!i :;id by all means be made a part of the diet." VSY WAY TO REDUCE FLESH. Wnttr and Ta!-.e Tassco. Haven't ycu often vi.';hed for a medicine to reduce your flesh?

I am sure to catch you In the end, and that Is the wrong end. 2. Watch your work, not the cloc!:. A long day's work makes a long day short; and a short day's work makes my face long. 3. Give me more than I expect and I will give you more than you expect. I can afford to increase your pay if you increase my profits. 4. You owe so much to vourself you eni.net afford to owe anybody else. Keep out of debt or keep out of my shop. 5. Dishonesty Is never an accident. Good men, like good women, never see temptation when they meet It. C. Mind your own business, and in time you'll have a business of your own to mind. 7. Don't do anything here which hurts your self-respect. An employee who Is willing to steal for me is willing to steal from me. 8. It Is none of my business what you do at night. But if dissipation ef fects what you do the next day, and you do half as much as I demand, you'll last half as long as you hoped. 9. Don't tell me what I'd like to hear, but what I ought to hear. I d;m't want a valet to my vanity, but one for my dollars. 10. Don't kick if I kick. If you're worth while correcting you're worth while keeping.
