For after all, the best way to judge a new motor car is by what it has done how it has stood up in service—the satisfaction it has delivered. We sincerely believe that the Light Six Touring Car, with its improved all steel body, is the sturdiest, handsomest, most comfortable, most dependable and economical low-priced car built. The machining of all surfaces of the crankshaft and coiinecting rods, to which is largely due its practical ab sence of vibration. is a practice used by Studebaker exclusively on cars at this price and is found only on a few other cars whose selling prices are from three to ten times as high as the Light-Six. The one-piece, rain-proof windshield with parking lights set in the base, is a joy to the driver —nothing to mar his view of the road ahead. Deep, fat cushions are upholstered in genuine leather. Curtains, bound on three sides by steel rods, open with the doors and provide closed car coziness in bad weather. The most seasoned driver will find a new thrill in the smooth, quiet, steady performance of the Light-Six — and in its ease of handling, and in the way it performs in high gear at low speeds— eliminating constant gear shifting. The name Studebaker has stood for high grade transportation, quality, value and integrity for 71 years.

C.» .T'klS 18 A STUDEBAKER YBArJ DIFFERENT WAYS TO PREPARE VEGETABLES Spwial Cara Should Be Taken to Preserve Peculiar Char acteristic of Each Dish. (Froparod by the United States DepartmaM of Agriculture.) Bolling vegetables, although so com mon and usual a method, Is only ona •t a variety of ways in which they may be prepared for the table. Each vegetable has certain characteristlca for which It la liked, and the endeavor In serving should be to emphasize the bast qualities. If It Is served because of Its crisp texture, or its attractive color, or Its distinctive flavor, or be cause It contains some particularly nutritious substance, special care should be taken to preserve that char acteristic. The method of cooking selected de pends somewhat on the place of the vegetable in the menu. A fried vege table, or one baked In combination with a protein-rich material may be in texture and flavor an excellent sub stitute for meat. Young green peas have a delicacy of favor and freshness of color that should be preserved by gentle, rather than violent cooking. Many persons sat raw celery for Its crispness; there fore, after It Is washed It should be put In a cold place so that It will have that texture. Since spinach Is often recommended for children because of Its vitamins and Its high proportion ef Iron, every effort should be made to preserve these. Morepver, the method that brings out the good points ot a vegetable generally conserves the food value. In general, vegetables should be cooked In small quantities of water to which salt has been added In the proportion of about one teaspoonful to 1 a quart of water. Cabbage, onions, and other strong-flavored kinds, are sometimes exceptions to this rule and are cooked either in large quantities 1 of water or even In two or three waters so that the flavor will be mild er. If the cooking water Is saved to favor soups or sauces, there Is no lose •f minerals. Spinach, lettuce, and other tender leaf vegetables can be cooked without the addition of any water. They are succulent enough themselves and have enough water clinging to them after being washed so that they will not ■tick to the kettle If stirred carefully and not placed over too hot a Are at first. Some of the delicately flavored veg etables may be cooked by what has been called the “conservation” meth od. They are cooked slowly and gently In Just enough water to prevent them from burning, and all this water le absorbed during the process. Thla often is recommended for green pens, •trlng beans, and young carrots. Whenever possible vegetables should be cooked whole and without peeling. This applies particularly to the root and tuber kinds. If they must be cut,1 they lose less of their nutritious sub stances when cut lengthwise rather1 than crosswise. The water for cooking vegetable! eiiould be boiling when they are put Into It. This helps to set the color of some kinds and shortens the time of cooking so that a smaller proportion of the minerals la extracted than when cold water la used. Starchy vegetables should be boiled gently in a covered kettle; green veg-1 etables hold their attractive color | better If cooked In an open vessel, j ▲11 boiled vegetables should be drained as soon as they are tender. Overcooking is one of the most com-, mon mistakes In preparing vegetables for the table. The time of cooking varies greatly with the quantity of water used and the kind, size, and age of the veg etables.

Man’s chief beast of burden, the horse, has decreased In numbers In the world at large about 11 per cent In the last ten years. Figures Just made public by the United States De partment of Agriculture show a falling off In the total head In 85 countries from 118,500,000 to 108,550,000. The decrease, however, occurred largely In Russia, where the decline was nearly 50 per cent, and the United States, where the total has dropped from 23, 145.000 In 1914 to 20,559,000. Russia’s total In that year of 34.700,000 has dwindled to 18,507,000, gi\ing the United States the greatest number. Oalns were shown In Argentina, Can ada, Spain and the Scandinavian countries. Pension Money Worth While. Soldiers of the Civil war now resid ing In Germany have been made multi millionaires by the receipt of pensions i from the United States. During the ! World war their accounts were sus pended and the recent payments of ac cumulated dues have mounted as high as $2,800 for one person. That sum amounts to more than 60,000,000 marks at the current rate of exchange. There are 229 persons in Germany and ten In Austria drawing regular Civil war pensions from the United States and consequently they now rank among the envied rich.—Pathfinder. Work Under Difficulties. Workmen are carrying out repairs to the muaonry at the very summit of Big Ben. the great Westminster clock tower In London, which is more than 800 feet high. A large Tudor rose re cently fell from the highest point of the spire, and to reach the spot It wus necessary to erect a scaffold 100 feet above the highest gallery. It was then found that five other roses were loose, and these have been taken down, re paired and reflxed. When there is a strong wind the work has to be sus pended.

Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina Herald Building Phone 44 IN this ape when science has made light, power and water everywhere available, when machinery has lessened labor and anaesthetics have dulled the edge of pain, the funeral director has utilized science to lighten the burden of the sorrowing. With the aid of science he is able to protect the family and the community from the danger of contagion, to make transportation safe, and to remove the traces of illness and unnatural ness which used to accentuate the grief caused by death. With the help of professionally trained assist ants, modern equipment, motorized convey ances, and often a fine funeral home or chapel, he is able to relieve the family of all details, and perform a service that brings comfort in the darkest hour and affords the consoling consciousness that the last tribute has been fitting and beautiful.
