Measure the brine and iidrt to it the |
same amount of eider vinegar; chop 1
one large, red pepper, seeds and all,

time. |
Growing Too Stout.

I seem to Ik' growing stouter every
day. Please give mo a few' simple
remedies that will help to prevent me
getting so fat. and oblige, yours very
truly, A DICE D.
Eat very sparingly of potatoes and
sugar, as these articles are fattening.
Dry toast, lean meat, stewed fruit anil
fish are suitable foods, and rich, fat,
sweet and greasy foods should be
avoided. Don’t drink water at meals.
Take tea and coffee clear. Unsweeten
ed lemonade, virhy and kissingen are
thinning drinks. Drink a tumherful of
vlchy twenty minutes after each meat, j
On alternate days substitute kissingen. ,

I Choosing Children’s Stories |i
i, ^ 4-1
r -r t i .i i i..t .1. I.JiXlI.XXJjXJ.Ji '
□r twilight, when the day’s work is done, the hour for telling stories Is,
perhaps, the happiest of the day. Then a child’s sympathy is the keen
est, his imagery the most fantas tic, and if the teller of the story has
tact and insight, her Influence may be far-reaching.
Perhaps there is no better educational factor than the story if well told
and well chosen. It is a medium through which many faults may be cor
rected, many morals pointed, as well as giving pleasure to a child and making
him acquainted with the world's best literature. But no story to be effective
should be didactic, nor should the moral be too pointed. It must be subtly
handled, and the child himself, through his Interest and enthusiasm, should
discover the underlying truth.
The development of a child is com parable to the progress of the race, so
it may be a good suggestion to begin with nature myths, stories of the sun
and the mighty agents that Influence the world. Fairy tales may follow,
where some outside agent performs the miraeres, the child himself not realiz
ing as yet that he has the power of self-expression. Later, when he hears the
stories of heroes, when the knight is the doer of mighty deeds, he then be
gins to realize his own ability and power to perform great acts.
Poems, of course, when well selected, are splendid studies for children, and
stories which have real hunter should be presented to them.
There is no limit to this educational field, and it lies within the power of
every mother to reach her child in this way both mentally and morally.

It is a good idea *o have initialed

taught to do the letters in eross-stiteh

Certainly there should be a separate
hook in the bathroom for each person’s
towel, so that there cun bo no mistake.
The towels should be changed fre

A mother can instil these habits into
the minds of her offspring without
making them vain.

6045 Child's One-piece Apron, 4, 6 and
8 Years.
Aprons that are easy to make at the
same time that they are childish and
becoming are those that busy mothers
are sure to appreciate. Here is one
that Is really charming. In the illus
tration it is made from white linen
and trimmed with bands showing
quaint little figures that are interest
ing in the extreme, but while such
combinations arc much in vogue tbe
apron will be found a good one for any
simple durable material. Gingham,
either check or plain, is excellent for
the purpose and trimming can always
be of contrasting color. Blue rham
tiray with bands of white makes a
pretty combination and white linen can
be treated in various ways. The apron
is all in one piece so that there are no
seams. It is out to form straps and
these straps arc crossed at the back
and buttoned Into place over the shoul
ders. The patch pockets are very con
venient at the same time that they
give a smart touch.
For a girl of 6 years of ago will be
needed H's yards of material 27 or 36
inches wide, with lVi yards of banding.
