The woman who aspires to get
ahead of her friends In starting out
door plants should heed the experi
ence of one who late in February
started a turnip and potato patch
In her window garden. On an upper
shelf there was a row of potatoes
and turnips, ■with little green heads
sprouting out through the top, says
the Ladies’ Home Journal.
•'What are you raising, potatoes
and turnips?” exclaimed one.
“No, flowers,” was the smiling re
"Flowers from potatoes and tur
nips? I suppose, then, you can per
form the miraculous and raise figs
from thorns.”
"Not quite that, but T can raise
most beautiful flowers from these po
tatoes and turnips. I will explain."
Then she told how she always
started her early, tender annuals In
doors before the weather tvas warm
enough for outdoor planting. These
were the annuals which would not
stand transplanting, such as phlox,
cypresa. vine, etc. Good-sized pota
toes or turnips were selected, part of
the Inside was dug out, the cavity
tilled with rich soli and the seeds of
the tender annuals were planted In It.
"When the weather is mild
enough," she went on, "I dig holes
In the garden and transplant my po
tatoes and turnips. They are a little
shriveled up by that time, but the
plantB are an Inch or two high. I have
had some five and six Inches high.
The potatoes or turnips quickly de
cay In the soli, and furnish food to
the plants. The roots of the latter
spread out, so I really transplant the
tenderest varieties without disturb
ing their roots. They keep on grow
ing without being checked, and I
have tender annuals weeks and
months ahead of my neighbors.”
An every day American father,
whose business kept him from home
a great deal, overheard his pretty
seventeen-year-old daughter con
senting to give a solo dance at a
charity kermis. He had been worried
in his infrequent glimpses of her
during the last year, to note a grow
ing restlessness and craving for ex
citement, and he now ventured to
remonstrate with his wife for her
easy permission, on the grounds of
the girl's youth and school work.

He learned that "charity" had been
the blinding word, says the Ladles’
Home Journal.
He learned some other things too.
He heard for the first time of the
distinctly "progressive” method of
the various women's organizations
devoted to the cultural and charit
able welfare of their up-to-date little
city. There had been "tag day” for
the library: and his pretty little
daughter had been much in demand.
There was the day for the young
girls: in their jaunty autumn suits,
had sold chrysanthemums on the
streets for Ihe hospital; and his pret
ty little daughter had won the prize
for the largest sales. There was the
woman’s edition of the evening pa
per for the benefit of the settlement;
and it was the young girls wlio bad
been detailed to solicit advertise
ments, block by block; his pretty
little daughter had been given the
most congested block, and for her
successful efforts had won the ex
pansive approval of the Mrs. White,
the acknowledged social leader. And
it. was the Mrs. White who had “so
depended on” his pretty little daugh
ter to make a financial triumph of
the candy booth at the bazar held
recently for the tuberculosis fund.
Then, from another source, he
heard his little daughter spoken of
as "that pretty little beggar.” The
father's foot came peremptorily down
and from that time on he saw to it
that she was kept away from the
wiles of the criminally thoughtless
women who, in the name of charity,
publicly exploit the charm and fresh
ness of the unsophisticated young
girl. Isn’t It time for mothers frank
ly to re.alize that this is just what It

f 4| WAS interested in your method of preserving fresh grapes fur win
ter use," writes Airs. Alary T., "and wondered if you would like to
have mine. It Is very easy to do, and the grapes keep nicely,
though they will not keep as long, I suppose, as by your way.
"I want you to know how much I like your page. It is thoroughly
readable, and I hope It will continue to flourish."
Keeping Grapes by Sealing the Ends With Wax
The grapes must be cleaned and dried first and all of the imperfect
ones removed. Then you melt some sealing wax. When it Is hot dip the
cut end of the stem of each hunch into It; place each hunch separately In
a thin paper bag or In a sheet of soft paper; gather closely and securely
around the stem, tying It with a string, to which you leave a loop by
which to hang the fruit. It should be kept in a cool, dry, dark place.
Thank you, very much, Mary T., for
the recipe and for the nice things you
said about the page. I’ll do my best,
I assure you, to make It flourish.

Aid for “E. WTS/’
One of my good friends has written
of her experience in raising canaries.
The note is addressed to you, “E. W.
S.,’ and I gladly pass it along.
Dear "E. W. S.
As I have had canaries for fifteen
years, perhaps I can help you in re
storing the singing voice of yours.
Tt is a bird’s nature to sing, and I
have found four reasons why they do
First—Because they are moulting.
Second—Because they have taken
Fourth—Infested with vermin.
Vou do not state any of its symp
toms, so T cannot prescribe.
Do voir keep in its cage all the time
a bird tonic for It to peck at? Tt
costs ten cents and Is to hr found at
the department stores. That is very
good to keep the bird In song. With
a scrupulously’ clean cage, fresh
water, good seed and cuttlefish, a
bird should warble all day long if It
is In good health.
Tf they are fed much apples, let
tuce. etc., they will begin to look for
it and neglect their seed.
htope you will soon hear its merry
notes again. MRS. M.
“Suppose,” said a man to one of the keenest educators of the day,
“you could retain only one study for a child, what study would that
Promptly came the answer: “Mental arithmetic.*'
Tlit- reply was a puzzling one until it was carefully thought over,
and then the wonderful sanity and clarity of the answer came to the
questioner in all its fullness.
What is mental arithmetic? It includes ail kinds of easy problems
of computation worked out without the aid of pencil and paper.
Proficiency in mental arithmetic means the ability to do orally,
with readiness, quickness and accuracy, easy problems of the typo (
found in actual business.
It is as useful as written arithmetic, while in common school odn- j
cation it is of fundamental im portance. It comes home to high and j
low, rich and poor, farmer and mechanic, says the Hadies’ Home Jour- j
nal. And. while it is an eminently practical study, mental arithmetic i
has the highest educational value. One purpose of education is quick I
and concentrated attention; this mental arithmetic calls for.
Another is mental training; this the study of mental arithmetic
serves in a wonderful degree*. The tremendously greater vitality that
exists in oral work over written work is naturally present In mental
The. mechanical emphasis that invariably goes with written work
is absent, and in its place is the emphasis on the logical side that
comes with mental training.
It makes for mental order; for earnest effort. It. is interesting how
in one study we can find almost all the elements of a successful mental
Very few people are dulte satisfied
with their circumstances, no matter
how sunny their skies, how strewn
with flowers their pathway ma.v be.
There is always a little more of some
thing they desire, although to no two
of us doe's the ••little more” have the
same significance.
Your little more would not he mine,
and mine would probably seem to
you much less desirable than it dors
to me. Hut to each of us it stands
for the difference between want and
plenty, whether it. refers to material
or immaterial things.
A little mod' money, a little more
time—how much It would mean to us!
In our Idle moments we plan what we
would buy if we only had a little
more money, what pleasures we would
enjoy If we only had a little more
time how we would rejoice and how
happv we should he if a little more
of the good things of life were given
to us, how much good we would do if
wa only had the means.
Well if it were possible that some
cood fairy could suddenly come and
bestow upon US this little more, it
might be that we would do all that
we planned, but t hardly think we

It is human nature to want a little
n.c.. . mi ■< satisfied hunger soon
renews its cravings. Most of us shall
continue to want a little more until
we fall into our final sleep.
Our expenses, our desires increase
with our income, so that even though
our income increases every year of
our life there is always with us the
desire for more money, says the Cam
den Daily Courier.
And as for a little more time, it is
always the busiest people who do
most with what they have, and If, in
stead of pining for more leisure we
would use every minute of the day,
when twilight fell we should lie sur
prised to find how much had been
accomplished. Time that is given to
necessary rest is not lost, since It
helps us to work quickly and well.
But timo that is merely frittered
awav in dawdling. Is a witness
against us all down the years.
Our wants and our real needs are
not always the same—we often enter
inlo a chase after intposible fancies,
trying to grasp "the little more" be
yond our reach, leaving unseen and
unappreciated the many sweet bits of
happiness that lie near us. A fine se
cret in contentment is in finding and
extracting all the pleasures we can
get from the things we have—and,
forgetting the eternal "if,” make the
best of each moment.
The New Fabrics
The fabrics displayed this season
surpass anything hitherto brought
out both in beautiful effects and in
price as well. For evening gowns,

"a' new material called duvetyn
promises to supplant the cotton vel
vets ho popular for the past two
years, but chiffon velvet will still be
used for gowns and no doubt will
be chosen by many because there
never has been a material as becom
ing, especially when made up, as at
present, with the soft real laces.

Too Many Chins
For the woman who has already
several chins and who wants but one,
there are numerous remedies. A
simple exercise, which consists of
twisting the head from side to side
with slow muscular effort, will tight
en the relaxed muscles. Anointing
with a skin food or cream and picking
up the flesh in tiny folds, rolling
firmly between thumb and first fin
gers, will dissolve the fat-cells. Ap
plications of cold water or astringent
lotions should follow. Slices of lemon
bound upon the neck will reduce the
size and wilt also have a m*ld bleach
ing effect.
Hot water and benzojn cause fatty
deposits to dissolve or contract, but
the treatment should always be fol
lowed hv applications of ice wrapped .
in old soft linen. The applications
should be rapid so as not to chill the
flesh too much. The ice massage can
be given two or three times a day for
two or three minutes.

The Vacation Trunk
Do not send the new dress trunk
down cellar for the winter and ex
pert it to appear for next summer’s
packing as fresh and smart a piece
of baggage as in its brand-new guise,
for even the driest cellar will turn a
trunk dingy and rusty unless special
care is taken. Before the trunk goes
down stairs go over every bit of it
except tlie leather straps with e cloth
dipped in sweet oil. Two coats of
the sweet oil will be better yet. Then
with a clean, dry cloth, rub the trunk
well, especially the metal work. Next
season the piece of baggage will loolc
just as fresh and bright as wiien first
