THE INTERSTATE FAIR.
Too much luggage spoils the picnic,
and yet the little feast is the star
feature of the day. How, then, to car
ry enough to eat, and at the same
time have it look tempting?
There is a hamper made of light
weight wicker and yet strong enough
to stand the wear of many outings in

Instead of the square or oblong hamp
er made after the fashion of the Eng
lish tea basket.
Straw cases for bottles, cups and
glasses are superior in many ways to
leather ones. The lighter covering
may not wear so well as the others,
but It looks much cooler. Hamper
fittings can be bought separately and
tucked away in a plain basket, and If
well packed no danger of breakage
need be feared.
Woodeu plates are really much
more nlcnlckv than china. If sand
wiches and cakes are placed on plates
when the basket is being arranged
and each one is wrapped first in a nap
.kin wrung out in ice water, then in
baker's or parafflne paper the food
will be kept perfectly fresh, and it
can be placed at once on the picnic
table when the time for luncheon has
arrived. Lettuce leaves that have been
nacked loosely ' in a linen bag thor
oughly dampened with ice water will
help to give the luncheon table a
fresh, cool and inviting air and they
can be used to garnish the plates of
cold meats and salads. This is an ex
cellent way to carry green salads, and
if the dressing is made just before
starting and carried in a bottle, or the
Ingredients packed so that the dress
ing can be mixed by the salad expert
while the luncheon is being spread
out, the salad will be fresh and crisp.

There are such perfect ways now
of carrying hot or cold liquids and

ature that few picnic parties botboj
with making tea or coffee at the
grounds. A basket that is well packed
with edibles which have been properly
chilled before starting seldom gets
warm and mussy if it is handled care
fully and kept out of the sun. Plates
and cups can be kept on the ice for a
while before they are tucked away in
the hamper and they will stay cold for
Tinned and bottled foods are beat
taken in small lots so that they can be
opened as needed and the empty
boxes or bottles thrown away at once.
Having a number of things in this way
does away with passing the food from
one end of the table or luncheon clolh
to the other. Paper napkins are good
enough for the average outdoor func
tion of this kind. They should, how
ever, be supplied in quantities so that
they may be used for covering the
plates, for wiping off dust and for
cleaning the dishes after the meal is

Miss Passay Old Dr. Gruff was re
marking to-day that the weather this
spring was just like that of 1876 and
he asked me if I didn't remember.
Miss Knox Yes?
Miss Passay Yes. Positively insult
ing, wasn't It?
Miss Knox Oh, surely not inten

what a wretched memory you have.
The Sort of Thing He Liked.
In an early day lu Stone county,
Missouri, a farmer's boy rushed into
the office of Dr. T. J. McCord of Ga
lena and urged the doctor to come
quickly to see his father, who seemed
to be dying. Said the doctor. "What
ails him, and what has he eaten?"
The boy said: "Oh, nothing much
but 14 roastin' ears for supper."
"Weir," said the doctor, "just go
back and throw him a couple of
bundles of oats and tell him I will be
up there in about 30 minutes."

Found the Answer Was "Coffee."
Many pale, sickly persons wonder
for years why they have to suffer so,
and eventually discover that the drug
caffeine in coffee is the main cause
of the trouble.
"I was always very fond of coffee
and drank it every day. I never had
much flesh and often wondered why
I was always so pale, thin and weak.
"About five years ago my health
completely broke down and I was con
fined to my bed. My stomach was
in such condition that I could hardly
take sufficient nourishment to sustain

coffee, didn't think I could do with

at first, but when it was made right
boiled until dark and rich I soon
became very fond of it.

I could eat more and sleep better. My
sick headaches were less frequent, and
within five months I looked and felt
like a new being, headache spells en
