"Not big trou ble, tooby shore, but Jest big enough to make 'em stick closer together. It ain't no use to try to rub out the fact that life is what It is.

Light but not bright should be the with which to decorate the walls of your home. Where there is light there Is always a cheerfulness which nothing else can produce, but brightness of colors soon er or later will affect the nerves. Where the rooms are small a small figured paper should be chosen, as this will make the rooms appear larger. and vice versa with the rooms which appear too large. Here are a few suggestions: For tht restibule, a grove-like effect; for 'the halls, plain felt paper or tapestry de sign; for the bedrooms, a flowered de sign, with lighter or a darker body ac cording to the amount of light ad mitted to a room. For the parlor a quite decorative de sign, chosen with judgment to match furniture; for sitting room and dining room, arbor or orchard effects are ef fective and becoming; bathroom, kitch en and laundry are best painted. . One paper should not be placed over another, as disease germs breed therí easily, and the thickness causes the paper to fall from the walls. RECIPE FROM NEW ENGLAND. Bait Codfish Dinner n Great Delicacy of That Diction. As served at one of New York's most noted . hostelries the following arrangement that has codfish as a foundation Is well worth sampling and passing on. The fish itself, to begin with, is of the best quality,- thick and delicate. This is boiled on a fish tray or In a cloth, then taken up and placed in the center of a hot platter. Over it Is poured a generous quantity of rlci white sauce into which the riced yolk oi a hard boiled egg has been stirred. A little fine minced parsley Is now sprinkled over the fish and sauce, while around the edge "of the plattet are ranged slices of boiled beets, boiled carrots, two or three small boiled onions and small boiled pota toes. A sauqeboat passed with tht service of fish contains finely diced fat salt pork with some of Its own fat. Tiny pickles accompany the dish also. It goes without saying that the dish should be served very hot Edifying Story That Is Vouohed for by the Georgia Ananias. "Yes," said the fisherman, "the man had fished all the forenoon, an' hadn't got a nibble, so he took another swal ler out the jug, pulled off his boots, an' lay down on the river bank an' went to sleep. As soon as he went to snorin' good, a alligator that had been watchin' him all the mornin' crawled uo an' swallered his boots, likewise the jug, with 'bout half a gallon in it, I reckon. The cork came out, and, of course, the 'gator got the full benefit o' the whisky, which so turned its head that it lashed the water with Its tall till the river was a foaralh' mass, after which it crawled up on the bank agin an' made desp'rit efforts to climb trees an' turn double-scmersaults, an' do all manner of impossible things!" 'Why didn't it swallow the fisher man, instead or his boot? some one asked. " 'Gators, gentlemen," said the story teller, "can't stand ever'thing They must draw the line some'rs."

"Common sense, reason, and my better judgment told me that coffee drinking was the trouble. At last my norvous system was so disarranged that my physician ordered 'no more coffee." "He knew he was right and he knew I knew It, too. I capitulated. Prior to this our family had tried Postum, but disliked It, because, as we learned later, It was not made right.

When cream and sugar were added, it was not only good but de licious.
