For two months past our hotter
half and baby have visiting rela
tives, and we have been “keeping
house.” In our two month practice
ard study we have discovered that
women uselessly wear themselves
out keeping house. We find in
our experience that many dollars
ean be saved by judicious manage
ment. lq sleep in a bed for two
or three weeks without disturbing
it makes it conform to che natural
position of the body and sleep more
restful. Food is just as nutritious
and whqlfsome when eaten from,
the same dishes Several times as
when a half hour is spen- in wash
ing Uie.m after e-ch meal. We
find it suvr.s time to kick our old
papers under the b ft instead of
spending twenty minutes folding
them up and putting them in tne
paper ruck, it c hv s fuel \:j •. osl
oil to spend cur evenings down
town with ihe toys. We could go
en and enumerate e.iguy economic
al and time saving f. atures in the
matter of housekeeping, but will
save our new found theories on
practical liquaekeoppig for our yfife

A western newspaper inaugu
rated a new system of reporting.
Every item was credited to the
person furnishing it. For instance,
if John Jones was arrested for
horse stealing the paragraph an
nouncing the fact would be pre
ceded by “Given us by Marshal
Johnson.” Other items were “Mar
shal Johnsou is a liar; furnished
by John Jones.” “Councilman
Brown was drunk last night; tur
nished us by the City Solicitor.”
This method was practiced about
two weefis, when the following
appeared .“We have two black
eyes, furnished by the general
public.” The editor was after
ward heard to express his thoro’
belief in impersonal journalism. -
There are now seven sugar-beet
factories in the United States in

successful operation, and four or
five more are either building or
have been projected. The fact
that so many new factories are to
be added to the li°t of those in
operation proves conclusively that
the beet-sugar industry has been
a success, and that capitalists are
now willing to invest mopey in ex
pensive plants.
According to Hon. J. J. Riggs.
as reported by a correspondent of
