The master of the house a poor gentleman who's dead new gave me that for cooking hia eggs the way. he wanted 'em." Kitchen Observations Grease the cup in which you meas ure molasses and every drop of mc lasses will come out. If you cannot get new rubber ringi for the fruit jars, dip the old ones in molted paraffin, or a mixture of par affin and sealing wax, and when cool they will do duty as well as new ones. Use coal oil to clean smoke off white metal teakettles. It also is an effective dirt remover from zinc, bath tubs, lavatories, etc. Always let the boiled ham cuol in the liquor in which it was boiled. Cold fried ham minced and creamed is very good served on toast. w m m Chopped English walnuts add a de licious flavor to vanilla ice cream. When making tea do not use water which as boiled a long time. ' m m m When fruit leaves a stain on the teeth it should be removed at once by rubbing on a little salt. A little ball of sealincr wax on the end of a knittinir needle will keen the knitting from sliding off. m m m m Try fastening the elastic on your motor hat with a hook-and-eye and see what a convenience it is. Sprinkle a little flour in the hot fat before frying with it and it will not be nearly so likely to spatter. m m m m Milk will clear gilt picture frames satisfactorily. Rub the dark spots carefully with a soft cloth moistened in milk and they will disappear. ..... V A REAL SYMPHONY. This Is a study In browns.

ITEMS Are Remembering the Hoys Whito ' ribboners in all sectioi.s of the country are generously remembering the "boys" with all manner of com forts in the way of wearing apparel, candy, jellies, fruits, etc., and alto gether are doin'g everything within their power to satisfy the physical, mental and even spiritual longings of the young defenders of the nation. To the soldier and sailor the very sight of the white ribbon brings a comfort ing sense of personal interest in his welfare and a desire to measure up to the best that is in him. Many are the words of gratitude everywhere receiv ed by local, county, state and na tional workers from recipients of mother-hearted ministrations. Prohibition Carried Hy a vote of L!82 to 128 in the house of representatives and 47 to G in the senate, congress has passed the prohi bition omendnemt for the United States. This is only the first move, ho v". ever, as the matter is now trans ferred to the legislatures in the various states and three-fourths of these states must pass favorably be fore it becomes a part of the federal constitution. There are now twenty one wet states and the drya will have to carry the legislatures of nine of these states to be victorious. Iiooze or Bonds? Which? During the recent Liberty Loan drive in Texas some interesting inci dents occurred. According to a Texas paper, a man whose face showed evi dences of many an encounter with al cohol, approached the Liberty Loan counter, laid down $2 and asked to subscribe for a $100 bond, remarking, "I had intended to use this $2 in buy ing booze tonight, but I have at last (realized that a man who wastes his money on strong drink in this great (crisis is a low-down creature. 1 am ' going to cut out beer and whiskey, ! rd put my $2 each Saturday into buying this $100 bond. I hope by the time I have paid my last installment, or in fifty-one weeks, I will have so 'overcome my craving for alcoholic rtimulant3 that I can continue invest ing $2 a week in government bonds; Il I had str.rtcd sixteen years ago 1 when I began drinking r.nd had used the money I wasted in buying booze for the purpo.se cf accumulating a i savings fund I would have had several 1 thousand dollars by this time, instead j ! of having nothing exct'pt by weekly 1 wage anl a weakened constitution. , I Mexican Women For It j 1 Sixty-five per cent of the popula- j 1 tion of the state is Spanish-American, so they should be given full credit for i their ? hare in making New Mexico l dry. They hare been called indiffer ent, but when it comes to ouestions affecting them personally they are 'found to be amazingly alive. Mexican I women worked enthusistically at thej polls. "INO one need icu me me r.iexi- can women are not ready for suf frage," a white ribboner writes. i"Vv'hen a liquor Mexican approached, the women working at the polls took j him in towj and went for him in a most surprising way. I could not tell 'what they' were sayir.g but they re duced him to submission in short order." I Canada Prohibits j The use of all foodstuffs in the j manufacture cf distilled liquors has ! been prohibited by the Canadian gov- jernmcnt. The order reads: . "No grain of any kind and no sub- t stance that can be used for food shall j be U"ed in Canada after November SO for the distillation of potable liquors." An order-in-council to this affect has j been passed upon the recommenda tion of the rood L'ontroner. it win remain in force "until the Governor-General-in-Council has by order de c!ared that the present abnormal con ditions have cea?ed." The penalty for violation of thf; regulation is a fine of up to $5,000, or 'mnrisonment for a term of not ex ceeding six months or both fine and imprisonment. J THE REAL THING. This dashing garcrnt, a combination of cape and Jacket, comes in Fcal. con trasted with wide bands of chinchilla. Tab fronts and a fur belt are almost M striking as the Immense roll collar. In the end we will see what we have always seen in a great war, that the nations with the most money will win. The United States possesses about one-third of the wealth of all nation. and this will be the deciding factor. Judge Elbert H. Gary. w yjoixn emit Lg i'i 0 3 The record of the life of Jesus Christ, which we now begin to study, sets Him before us as the perfect ser vant, rather than as the King of Mat thew's gospel, or the Son of Man of Luke, or the Son of God It John. We do well to keep in mind the words, "Behold my servant whom I, uphold, mine elect in whom my nml delight oth." nnd also, "Behold I will bring forth my servant the Branch" (Isn. 42 :1 ; Zech.. 3 :8) . If we would say truly "Whose I urn, and whom I serve" sind faithfully serve the living and .true God, bearing In dally life the fruit he desires, we must consider lilm who was the only perfect servant, and abide as branches in him who is the True Vine. But this we cannot do till we have truly received the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; or as It is written in Uom. 1:1-3, the good news of God concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. We cannot serve the Lord till we have been re deemed by receiving Jesus Christ as our own personal Savior, according to John 1 :12 ; 3-10, 18 ; I John 5 :12. That being settled, then our whole life should be one, of loyal service, with j the perfect servant as our only put- j tern, according to Ileb. 12:1-3; I Pet. j 2 1 As John the Baptist was his. mes senger, preparing the way before him at his coming in humiliation, so flic real Elijah will prepare the way before him at his coming in glory (Matt. 17:11; Mai. 4:5, C). Meantime all be- llevers should be preparing the way for his coming again by preaching re- j pentance nnd remission of sins in his name In all the world, according to ! Luke 24:40-48; Acts 1:8. John's cloth-', lng was peculiar, nnd his food pecu- liar, nnd he pointed nil people to the coming One whose shoes' latchet he was not worthy to stoop down and un loose. He claimed nothing for himself , except that he was a voice, something ; to be heard but not seen, pointing to ' the one he came to lionor, concerning whom he cried : 'Behold the Lamb of j God I" When told that Jesus had more followers than he had, he suld that he was glad nnd added, "He must in crease, I must decrease" (John 3:29, 30). As to a more full account of John's preaching see Matt. 3:7-10; Luke 3:7-11: He told them of some thing greater thsin baptism with wa ter, even a baptism of the Holy Spirit which Jesus would give them, and he pointed them onward to the end of the age when the wheat would be gath ered into the garner, but the thaff burned up with unquenchable fire 1 (Matt. 3:11, 12). The future for nil will lie the Kingdom or the lake of tire, and even between death and resurrec tion it Is conscious happiness or tor ment (Itcv. 20:15 ; Luke 1G:25). If this was really believed by nil the preachers and teachers, they would surely be more earnest in proclaiming the Gospel of God concerning his Son, the only Savior of sinners (Acts 4:12). The remaining verses of our lesson tell of the bnptlvm of Jesus by John I at the Jordan, tuiu the event is more fully recorded by Matthew and Luke.

TEDDEL ESTATE, Proprietor about thirty years of age, and we must remember those thirty years at Nuz ureth, the humble home, the carpen ter's shop, the submission, nnd obedi ence and patient waiting of all those years In that lowly life in which he no doubt glorified the Father as much as In his public life. Tills Is a greatly needed lesson for all of us: not doing some great thing but Just filling the place he assigns us, however lowly It may be. , We do not wonder that nt first John refused to baptize him, saying that he had greater need to be buptized by Jesus, but Jesus himself baptized not (John 4 :2). Note our Lord's reply, his second recorded utterauce as the Son of Mary : "Suffer It to be so now, for thus It becometh us to fulfill all righteousness (Matt. 3:15). He alone of all men was always righteous, uud did righteously. He had no sins to confess, but submitted to all things for our sakes, that he might be made unto its wisdom, righteousness, sanctlflca tlon, redemption (I Cor. 1:30; II Cor. 4:21). If we are ever about his busi ness, us he was about his Father's, we will gladly suffer many things for his sake which may seem to us wholly unnecessary.' Luke 3:21 says that as he was baptized he was praying. Al ways In conscious communion with his Father and always pleasing his Father (John 8:29). This Is the. sec ond time that we find In Scripture the words "the heavens opened," and the seven events In connection with which we find these words form a truly glo rious study, each event concerning him and his people on earth. In Kzek. 1;1, 2G, he is seen as a man on the throne controlling his own re deemed nnd all their affairs; here he Is the Word made flesh, submitting to all things for our sakes that we may In lue time share with him his kingdom nnd glory. Mark well the Father's testimony and the Spirit's resting place, for he is the true and only nrk of safety, n whom alone the Spirit can fully rest.
