WO. 5 HOW TO GUARD THE BOTTLE-FED BABY. 1 I must wean my four-months-old baby. What sort of bottle is best? The perfectly round or cylindrical brittle Is best. It come in two styles, with a neck as large as the bottle, re Quiring a very large nipple, and a small tapering neck which will accom. modate a smaller nipple. The latter fs- more comfortable for the baby to nurse. Never buy a bottle with "cor ners" In which particles of stale milk an settle, and never use an old medi cine bottle for the same reason. The, bottle with measurements, by ounces, fciewn Into the gl3s, is best. These fcetd up to 8 ounces. t How many bottles should I buy? As many as the baby has feedings In It hours, and one or two extra In case cf breakage. At 4 months, the baby If fed every three hours, starting with a. m. and end'-nj ct 9 or 10 p. m Therefore six bottles cr more will be Seeded. Ton should also have a wire Tack for holding the bottles. This Is economy, as It saves breakage. There hculi be absorbent cotton or sterile eotton wool for stoppering tbe bot- I What are the beat nipples? Pis. In dart rubber, without glass tabes. Bacteria lode In glass tubes. They rank aaotig baby-killers. As the u'.ze of the hole lo important, some phy sicians recommend buying nipples ripples without holes, and piercing them with hot needles. The bole should be Just large enough to permit the milk to drop or drip through when the bottle U Inverted. It must not Cow. If the hole is too small, the baby Is exhausted by the effort to draw out the milk; If too large. It suffers from (taking or gulping down the milk. 4 How are nipples kept clean? They may be belled for a minute or fiwo when now. After that, boiling Is hot necesrary and rots the rubber. Af ter each feeding wash the nlpplo thor oughly with hot soapsuds made with whit soap. Rinse In borax water, then in cool, pure water, shake, stand n a e.-nall pinto or saucer, and cover with as Inverted glass. This Is con sidered a better method than leaving tt to soak In borax water. Kever test the temperature of the Btfik by putting the nipple In your Month, end never handle it with your Rogers nor allow flies to light on It. I Should bottles be boiled? Jfot necessary, but they must be thoroughly cleaned. If the baby does not take all the milk In tbe bottle, throw away what is left, and Immedi ately scrub the bottle Inside and out, using a brush which comes for the pur pose, and suds made from pure soap. Rinse with hot water, then fill with water in which borax or bicarbonate of soda has been dissolved. Stand in a rack until the food Is prepared the next morning. Then turn upside down to drain, rinse thoroughly with clear water, to remove the borax. Turn up side down to drain and cool, ready for efllllng. 6 Is there any special equipment for modifying milk? Tou can secure the equipment from any first class bouse furnishing store. You need six graduated bottles, three nipples, a graduate or measuring glass holding 16 ounces, for measuring milk and water, a wide-necked porcelain or glass pitcher holding two quarts and pouring easily, a glass funnel fitting easily Into the neck of the bottles, a sauce pan and tablespoon of enamm eled ware, a quart preserving Jar for gruel or boiled water, wire bottle racks and a clean Ice chest. 7 How should the milk be heated? By placing the bottle, still stoppered with cotton, in a pan of warm water and letting It stand until It reaches body temperature. Test by dropping on the bare forearm. Never boil the milk, and return it to the bottle. 8 I have only an old-fashioned Ice chest, with Ice and food mixed. The bottles of milk are often broken. Can you tell me of an inexpensive little refrigerator for milk alone? Any house furnishing or department store can supply a nursery refrigerator at $5 or more. This uses about 5 cents worth of ice per day. A husband or eon handy with tools can make a little Ice chest for tbe baby's milk as fol lows: Get a wooden box large enough to hold an ordinary sine or tin water pall. Fasten a lid on this box with hinges and a stout hook or clasp. Set a large pall In the center and pack It all around with sawdust. Set a much smaller pall Inside the first one, and back Ice between the two palls. Place the bottles holding the baby's milk In side tbe smaller pall, and cover it tight ly. Line the lid of the" box with news papers, covering them with oilcloth to keep them dry. This keeps out heat and prevents melting of Ice. The palls can be bought at a five and ten cent store. This homemade Ice chest finds favor with country mothers In particu lar. It can be run for five cents a day or less and Is a real baby-saver. AUGUST AN A COLLEGE ROCK ISLAND. ILL.

(3) Do you believe in fortune tell ing? (4) Do you think we are too young to go out riding alone with our beaux at night? (5) Do you think it is all right for girls of our age to powder? (6) Should we break our engage ments just because a young man. smokes or chews tobacco? (7) Should a girl go with a fellow that her folks don't want her to go with? (8) And should she go with a fellow just because her folks want her to? (9) Which do you think is best to live In, the country or in a small town ? (10) Do you think It. all right for us girls to ride horseback? DOLLY AND DIPPY. (1) Yes. (2) No. (3) No. (4) If your beax treat you with per fect respect and your parents know them to be absolutely respectable young men who would not take advan tage of a girl, it might be all right. But on the whole it isn't wise for young people to go out riding alone at night.

The engage ment of Miss Lucy Bigelow Dodge, granddaughter of the late John Bige low, once ambassador to France and America's foremost diplomat, to Walter T. Rosen, a New York banker, has just been announced. The wed ding is scheduled to take place in August. Miss Dodge's friends in New York are wondering whether she will set tle down now and be the conventional wife of a millionaire. She has always been very much of a democrat, has Lucy, though she has lived In the midst of wealth. She has frequently pondered over tbe differences between the rather exclusive set In which she moves, and the "other half." "Why are we not all born equal V she asked, while dining with dukes and duchesses, lords and ladles, the cream of English society. "Why does one part of the people of Eng land, for Instance, bow and scrape to the other part? And the part that scrapes is so much larger than the part that is scraped to." And Lucy's mother, the aristo cratic Mrs. Lionel Guest of London, sighed. "Lucy will never marry, I rlar: she has such queer Ideas." M:s. Guest wrote her sisters in New York. "Send her to Newport," they re plied. "One season there will work wonders." And so to Newport came Mrs. Guest and fner delightfully pretty daughter. Of course. Miss Dodge was a favorite from the be ginning, and th same old round of dinners and dsces of which she had wearied in England started all over again. And the same old line of suitors bobbed up In front of her. Only this time they were princes of finance rather than princes of the blood, millionaires rather than dukes and lords. But the same lack of unity bejtween the many grades of people was Just as apparent, and Lucy soon made up her mind that she could never settle down and be happy with aiiy one of these aris tocrats of wealth. But Mrs. Guest and her aunts and cousins were at her back all the time urging her to marry and to marry as much wealth as she could.. They refused to let her alone, and, lo! one morning Lucy disappeared. Away from would-be husbands with their millions she ran, and refused to re turn until her mother promised that she should marry whom and when she chose. It was some months after this that Lucy disappeared again, this time In London. Reports of her dis appearance were published broad cast throughout Europe and America. When she was finally found she was living in the theatrical district where she had taken quarters. She - an nounced that she had determined to take up a career on the stage, say ing that -she had decided to be of use in the world. She also said that she did not mind being a society lady for a few months in a year, but for the balance of the time she wished to do something useful. Banker Rosen is satisfied that be can make the heiress happy. But her friends would not be surprised if she should decide at the last minute to put the wedding off Indefinitely. ft j ii m m s Wf. fr 7 :. V- . A r A'Nfciv.Y mi enough to know her own mind, she should not turn him down just because her folks don't care for him. (8) Not for that reason only. (9) Any place is the "best" place to live in if you- make the best of your surroundings. For some things I should prefer the country, and tv others the town, but I could be very happy living In either place. (10) I think it is a splendid exer cise if you do not overdo it. I hope you ride astride, as it 1b safer and a girl looks fully as well as In the old fashioned side saddle. Dear Mrs. Thompson: We- are three girls aged respectively 15, 16 and 17. (1) Is it proper for me to go with boys 16, 17 and 18 years of age? (3) Do you think it is Improper for a slrl of 16 to keep steady company? (3) Is it proper for a girl of 17 In company with four boys to go auto riding in the country without any girl friends? CURLY LOCKS. (1) Boys of that age ought to make good friends for girls of your age. Don't lmk upon "hem as sweethearts, though, for your tastes will change by the time you are old enough to marry. (2) It is unwise. A girl of 16 is not formed yet In her mind, heart or body, and the boy she thinks she loves when she is 16 will be nothing to her when she is 18 or 20. So keep yourself free, my dear, from any entanglements with boys until you are old enough to know a real man when you see him. (3) It is not at all proper. Dear Mrs. Thompson: I am 24 years old and wish to become a nurse. I haven't had any high school education, but I've passed all tbe grades in my school. Do you think I could be a nurse? I don't care for any male friends, so I thought it best to become a nurse. Will you please tell me where to ap. ply to become a nurse? Could I pass for a Red Cross nurse or a practical nurse? EMMA V. If you are strong 'and healthy and can apply yourself, if you have a good memory and can obey Instructions, 1 don't see why you should not make a good nurse. The course of study to be come a trained nurse occupies at least three years. Any reputabje hospital in a large city can give you directions for taking up the course. A practical nurse does not have the training of a trained nurse and does not command half the salary, as a rule. A Red Cross nurse must be a trained nurse. jf LICENSED TO WED Bert Thompson Rock Island Miss Agnes Anderson Moline Frederick K. Frederickson Buffalo, Iowa Miss Thora Lucille Hill Mollne William A.

A True War Story ABOUT a hundred years or so ago, in a central Western state there lived a man named Robert Hanna. So brave was he, and so wise with all, that he was made a general and he served his country faithfully. One of the relics of his bravery which his family cherish loyally is a British sword. Perhaps you won der how General Hanna, alone, cap tured a British sword listen this is the story: One day, when everything; was very quiet and there was no sign of British about, General Hanna (who was not yet a general then by the way) found he must visit his home and attend to some business matters. He secured leave of absence and started on the long walk home. Just as he had passed well out from the woods and rounded the bend of the road into the open country, he heard behind him the sound of horses. By the thud, thud on the ground he could tell there were many, but whether they were friends or British there was no way of knowing-. It was necessary to hide till he made sure. Looking hastily about he spied a log- a little way from the road and half hidden by high weeds. He ran , to it and hid himself not one sec ond too soon; for, peeping out, he could plainly see by the scarlet coats that the soldiers were British men. i About a hundred marched by with never a glance towards the log be hind which Hanna lay hid. At last all were passed and everything grew still. "All the same," thought Ilann to himself, "I'll lay right here a while till I'm sure there are no stragglers following the army." i Indeed it was well he did, for very soon a single British soldier came trotting along. Just at that very minute a beautiful deer dashed across the road. The soldier fired once twice - three times but missed, and the deer dashed madly by the very spot where HanatUT hid. The British soldier jumped o8 his horse as if in pursuit, tnea changed his mind and paused clOH Your sword. pUast." . v Quick as a flash.
