Mr. Harry Crossman, who conduct-
ed a barber shop the past sixteen
years in Pittsburgh, has leased the
Noll barber shop here and will move
his family to the Gap in a few days.
Harry is not an experiment, but has
the reputation of being a first-class
Did it ever occur to the reader that
we are fast degenerating, so far as
pertains to the importance of house-
keeping, and the art of cooking. In
years gone by the mother deemed it
essential that her daughter should
not think of matrimony until she
could make a man’s shirt and iron
the same methodically; and above all,
she had to be able to cook a meal
for her husband the same as mother
cooked. Not so now, in the present
day and generation. Fully one half
of those who today embark in matri-
mony don’t know the first principle
of preparing a palatable meal, not-
withstanding the majority are not in
a position to employ a domestic to do
what the mother failed to teach her
daughter before she embarked on her
matrimonial venture.. Thus the new-
ly-made wife is placed in a deplorable
predicament. The science of cookery
may very properly be classed among
the fine arts, and certainly it is by no
means the least among them; for, in
the nature of events, a practical
knowledge of scientific cooking touch-
es more intimately our homes and
home comforts, and influences the
masses of the people as no other art,
however lofty in its conception, or
elevating in its results, may hope to
do. The culinary art may truthfully
be said to pave and prepare the foun-
dation of all architectural arts; for as
a man’s inevitably what he eats, so the
characteristics of the cooking present-
ed to his palate are almost invariably
reproduced in his life and works. Good
cookery is the foundation of good di-
gestion; and good digestion is the
foundation and first factor in sound
thinking. The grain and wheat
springing green, and ripening under
favorable sunshine and showers, pro-
duce not only a certain portion of
good for the stomach, but also a cer-
tain amount of mental energy; from
which result thoughts, clogged and
bound, or free and soaring, according
to the form that food has taken,
hence the responsibility of the cook,
who sees in her work not only food
for the body, but inspiration for the
mind, becomes weighty and far-reach-
ing in its possibilities. Proper care
and attention, however, will be found
necessary in order to secure the best
results from a given amount of raw
material; neither will the moments
thus spent be time wasted; for ac-
cording to an eminent physician, every
young housewife who loves her house-
hold, and every young maiden who
hopes to have a household to preside
over, should study seriously, consider
this all important subject, just as they
study grammar, arithmetic, geogra-
phy, and other elementary branches
of education in the schools. Every
day newer, more healthful, more de-
lightful dishes are invented for the
delectation of the palate, and more ec-
onomical methods are continually be-
ing sought out of their concoction so
these changes should require the
studious attention of those about to
embark in housekeeping. Economy
and pleasure alike demand that we
should acquire the easiest and most
skillful methods of steering the do-
mestic ship safely and smoothly on its
way. System is the pivot upon which
all good housekeeping turns. It is to
be hoped that mothers who have the
welfare of their daughters at heart
will do their utmost to teach them
thoroughly in the art of cooking, so
that humiliation and embarrassment
will be avoided when they first em-
bark in housekeeping. “A word to
the wise is sufficient.”

A Menace to the Entire Allied World.
The attempted drive of the Red
army of Russia through Poland today
enlists world wide interest and appre-
hension. The apparent object of the
invaders is to reach the borders of
Germany, through which country its
progress it is calculated will be easy
because of the sympathy there with
the cause of the Reds. The Russian
army, it is charged, has been trained
and whipped into shape by German
officers, and it is known that the Ber-
lin government and a large portion of
the German people are not averse to
giving the allies as much trouble as
possible. Having once gone through
Germany the Red army of Russia
would be on the borders of France—a
menace to the entire allied world. This
is regarded as the true meaning of the
present invasion of Poland.—Ex.
