M'LISS DISCUSSES SWEETEST
OF ALL SWEET THINGS HONEY
Pennsylvania's Bees Produce Finest Variety of
This Foodstuff, the Many Uses of Which
Are Not Known to Average Housewife
HAVE you a llttlo honey-pot In your homo?
I do not nsk this question frivolously! nor do I uso tho word "honoy
pot" as tho term of personal endearment bo frequently employed In tho dally
speech below the Mason and Dixon line. I mean docs there stand on your pantry
Bholf,' along with tho sugar and splco and everything nice, a Jar of that sweetest
ofc all sweet things, and that most poetic of all foodstuffs, tho nectar of Bwcct
smelling flowers honey?
I have Just been talking with a bee-man. Not with one of your baldhendcd
theorists who keeps his hive on his study tablo and pries Into the habits of tho
busy llttlo beo with his microscope, but a wizened llttlo man who declares deprccat
Ingly that his knowledge of bees la "only practical,"
lie hasn't read Maotorllnek's "Llfo of tho IJcc." Ho doesn't believe, with
tho I3elglan philosopher, that tho bees aro tho most charitably Inclined insects
that fly tho air. On tho contrary, ho advises beo gloves nnd beo veils and all dis
guising paraphernalia with which careful apiarists bedeck themselves. Ho has
been overseer of a beo farm for many years, nnd what ho can't understand
la why more people aren't Interested In these wonderful Insects nnd why tho
product of their ceaseless activity Isn't on closer speaking terms with tho average
"Now, honey" (ho's mentioning tho floral nectar, of course), "should bo
ono 6f tho necessities of life. And yet the nvorago woman doesn't half appreciate
Its uses, In my mother's day honey was used for everything from sweetening
cAkcs to fading freckles and relieving sore throat."
Tho Very best honey in tho country, according to this expert, comes from
Pennsylvania, Chester, Lancaster and Bucks Counties leading In tho production.
Tho bees of tho Keystone Stato havo a versatile palate, and almost any blossom
that bows Us head In a sufficiently low sulaam of wolcomo Is almost certain to
havo a buzzing visitor.
Of courso you know that tho very finest honey, that pale, amber kind,
Which Is almost as whlto as water, comes from tho orange blossom, tho whlto
clover and tho basswood blossom. Is It any wonder that honey has always been
considered oa fit food for tho gods?
Certain plebeian bees, however, havo an unconquerable liking for buckwheat
fUtvor. This gives to tho honoy that they exude a dark color and a strong
flavor, which Is preferred by many people, but which Is not regarded as tho best
by epicures. Ooldenrod, aster, heartsease and palmotto aro also favorites of
tho bees, the nectar extracted from these blossoms being of a medium amber shade
nnd of a flavor not so delicate as tho whlto clovor and orange blossom kind, nor
so dark as tho buckwheat variety.
The beo man gave me a llttlo booklet with some of tho most dclcctablo
recipes I havo ever read about. I will gladly send a copy of the most mouth
watering ones to those of my readers who are Interested enough to send a
stamped, self-addressed envelope.
Consider the Epitaphs
A letter today requests mo to say a few words in regard to tho present day
tendoncy of girls to delay their marriage, if not until they havo attained a
"rlpo old age," at least until they havo arrived at the period when only kind
ness entitles them to bo classed as girls.
My correspondent wishes to know If I can shed any enlightenment In this
matter. In other words the question put squarely Is: Why do American girls
no longer rush into matrimony ulmost In their Infancy as they did in a bygone
The only answer to tho question that occurs to mo Is that perhaps the
modern maid In her historical peregrinations has walked through tho old
cemeteries where Ho burled tho women of several generations ago.
Their epitaphs aro Illuminating.
"Hero lies Abigail, third wife of John Hunter. Died in her 17th year," Is
Few of these pioneer women who married when they wcro scarcely more
than children, 16 being a popular ago for women to take up tho duties of married
life and 14 a not uncommon ago, lived longer than 35 or 3S. Two-scoro was a
pood nge for them. Obviously, from tho testimony of tho wonderfully Interesting
old tombstones, assuming tho cares of a family nnd a household was not con
ducive to a lpng life. Tho mon apparently grew patriarchal beards and waxed
ancient; the women In tho plcturesquo language of the epitaphs were taken early
"to tho bosom of their fathers." Fagged out, doubtless, and glad to bo taken.
Tho spinning-wheel and tho old oaken bucket that hangs In tho well "tho
U amT. a,nd ,pen stove, are romantic articles from the modern viewpoint, but
n placed by tho sldo of tho vacuum cleaner, tho tireless cooker, the gas range and
tno electric toaster, tney aro badges of drudgery. Indeed. Llko tho famous
"ono hoss shay," which went and went until it could go no further, but Just
disintegrated In tho middle of tho road, so the wife of a couple of generations ago
went until sho could go no more. Sho wore out In middle ace or at n timn

Drecoll fits the waistline without lacing

original and necessary, because American
women have demonstrated their unwlll

small waist by using a fitted back on the

Dry cleaning s not really dry at all. Dry cleaning
simply means a cleaning process where water is not
used but gasoline. The dry cleaner puts the article
in a gasolinebath and cleans it with a preparation
that works in gasoline as soap works in water
ordinary soap, you know, won't work in gasoline.
is just that kind of an article but improved nnd
adapted to your own uses at home at but a few
pennies expense and with cleansing qualities that
will give results you can't get even by paying
a dry cleaner a big price to produce.
The great points about tho Putnam Dry Cleaning
process are these
Jt is Harmless
The most delicate fabtlo, that would be ruined by washing
with sojpaml water, cannot be imured in any way. the
fmet lace, net orembroldery, are perfectly ante from harm.
Won't cause any shrinking, wrinkling, losa cf chare or
change la color.
Jt is Effective
All dlrty-the most tenacious can be thoroughly removed.
Dry cleaning amounts to renovating adds a lustre to fun,
sillc! and ribbons.
Jt is Simple
Just rubblns or brushing and rlnjlnc, and It's done. Dries
out quickly, and (he article can be hung up or worn very
toon afterwards. Fun and woolens after dry cleaning can
be safely put away free from worry over moths.
Jt is Inexpensive
