Speaking from your vast experience]
of men. Mother Dear, when Is a wo
man justified In having Implicit faith
in her husband?
When he Is blind, My Child, and
deaf and dumb, and sits crippled In
the chimney corner. Then she is Jus
tified In having supreme confidence
in him.
What, Mother Mine, is meant by
"saving for a rainy day?"
It means. Little One, that the pru
dent put by a little money for a
shower, and find It is a deluge when
It comes.
Explain, Mother, what you mean by
saying there are only two kinds of
men on earth?
The single men, Daughter, who arc
not as good as their sweethearts think
they are, and the married men who
are not as bad as their wives believe.

Stop Falling Hair and Itching
Scalp—At Once
There is one sure way that has
never failed to remove dandruff at
once, and that is to dissolve It, then
you destroy it entirely, w To do this,
just get about four ounces of plain,
common liquid arvon from any drug
store (this is all you will need) ap
ply it at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the scalp and rub
it in gently with the finger tips.
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
lour more applications will completely
dissolve, and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of It, no matter
how much dandruff you may have.
You will find all itching and digging
of the scalp will stop instantly and
your hair will be fluffy, lustrous, glossy,
silky and soft, and look and feel u
hundred times better.
If you value your hair, you should
get rid of dandruff at once, for noth
ing destroys the hair so quickly, it
not only starves the hair and makes
it fall out, but It makes it stHngy,
straggly, dull, dry, brittle, and lifeless,
und everybody notices it.—Advertise

■ returning to the kitchen,
j This time they were allowed to
i enter, for both Warren and Mr.
j Stevens were busy trying to fasten
the meat chopper to the table.
| They were both in their shirt
I sleeves. Warren, with a long roller
| towel pinned up on his shoulders and
j hanging almost to his feet, while Mr.
I Stevens had a white cloth pinned
around his generous waist line,
j "Why, Henry." indignantly, "that's
; the bread cloth."
; But Mr. Stevens was absorbed in
an inspection of the three blades that

j Use finest cutter," read Warren,
from the receipt. "How in thunder
jean you tell which Is the finest? Here,
I this must be it."
I Then they opened the packages the
j hall boy had just brought. There was
boiled ham, cheese, eggs and a box of
' crackers.
; With a gleeful chuckle. Warren cut
up the cheese and began grinding it
through the chopper In eloquent imi
tation of the hand organ man.
• "Hold on there!" expostulated Mr.
I Stevens. "That stuff's got to be
j weighed. You can't guess at this
j thing, we want to have it right"
j "But, Henry,,we haven's any scales.
; Lizzie broke ours last month."
A Way Out
"How about the postage scales?"
.suggested Warren "Didn't I see some
on your desk? They'll weigh a quar
ter of a pound."
| Mrs. Stevens brought out the post
| age scales, and while they weighed
i the ham and cheese Helen read the
| receipt.

I "Phew, this thing's getting all

j the chopper was now clogged with
; the ham and cheese.
"Run a couple of crackers through

"There, don't that look tine?" when
it was all run through the chopper,
II cleaned with a final cracker. "Now
I what's the next thing?"
"Half pint of milk."
■ "Just about that much here," pro-'
! ducing a bottle from the icebox.
"That's all the milk we've got for
breakfast," demurred Mrs Stevens. 1
Unheeding this protest Mr. Stevens {
poured the milk, while Warren stirred
!it in vigorously with a long wooden j
| spoon. •
Helen, who had always dotibted the !
tidiness of Mrs. Stevens' much-lauded'
I maid, could not resist a critical glance I
j about the kitchen. The stove was I
not clean. The burners and dripping,
| pan were coated with greasei and a j
| smoke-stained newspaper lined the
I warming pan.
The shelves were not over-orderly, |
and the top of the icebox was piled
with bags and boxes. And yet she!
had every convenience. There was an I
{ expensive kitchen cabinet, with its
j blue and white cereal and spice jars, I
jthe kind Helen had always wanted. i
"Those beaten enough?" demanded I
; Warren, who was frothing the eggs'
! with a patent beater.
I ast Touches
| "Fine. Pitch 'em In. Now, Emily,
| whcre's your baking bowder?"
The eggs and baking powder were
| stirred in and the batter poured into
ia baking dish.
"Oh, turn* off some of those foot
: lights." as Warren opened the oven
and found that Mr. Stevens had lit
| up both rows of burners.
"No, we'll want the whole show on I
in the beginning—need a good hot!
j oven to start her off."
I "All right, here she goes." and
[ Warren slipped the dish In, slammed
Ito the oven door, and wiped his hands
on his roller-towel bib. "You're go
| ing to have a real treat That'll be
Ithe best stufT you ever tasted. Now
j you two hurry and set the table."
I "But what'll we have with it?" ask
ied Mrs. Stevens.
"Nothing. It's a whole meal in it-
Iseif. Got a few bottles of beer,
haven't you?" glancing in the Ice-;
I box. "Well, that's all we'll want."
When Helen and Mrs. Stevens had
finished setting the table, Warren ap
peared with a fork In one hand and
a dish towel in the other.
I "Just come in here and have a
i sniff."
I "If it'll only taste as good as It
!smells." laughed Mrs. Stevens, sniff
ing the delicious odor that came from
the oven.
"Take a look at that, Emily," and
Mr. Stevens opened the oven door.
"See if you don't think that's done."
"Why, yes, I should think so," said
Mrs. Stevens.
"Let's take it out. Everything in

For First Time in Years Permission

i—J .Many jurors had
been excused "sub
ject to call" or for the entire week,
when the roll was called at the open
ing of March quarter sessions yester
day. This, and the fact that several
Juries were deliberating cases to-day,
made it impossible to get together
more than ten talesmen for the trial
of Edward Kaiser, charged with steal
ing a bicycle. Finally another Juror
dropped in and he was snapped up.
Kobert Stucker, counsel for the de
fense, expressed his willingness to
proced with eleven Jurors then, but
Assistant District Attorney Frank B.
Wickersham asked for permission to
select a venire from the audience. Be
fore this was necessary, however, an
other jury reported with a verdict and
the necessary twelfth man was drawn.
