Best Liver and Bowel
Regulator for Mam
ma, Daddy and
If you're headachy, constipated, bil
ious or stomach is disordered and you
want to enjoy the nicest liver and
bowel cleansing you ever experienced,
take a tablespoonful of "California
Syrup of Figs" to-night and in the
morning all the constipation poison,
bile and clogged-up waste will gently
move out of the system without griping
and you will feel splendid.

Which For What
Since many splendid metals have
eeased to be costly the assortment of
utensils in the well-stocked kitchen is
positively alarming to the young house
keeper who does not have a deep stock
of culinary experience to draw on.
Which pan or tin is best, she wants to
know, for certain things? Then there is
the other extreme: the woman who has
little room in the kitchenette and must
have a modicum of kitchen utensils
and make each fill its utmost useful
Tinware is used for baking tins, cake
and cookie sheets and molds and for
some small kitchen conveniences if
lieavv and of good quality, and well
eared for it is most effective for bak
ing as it responds so quickly to regu
lations of temperature.
Iron kettles or highest grade gran
ite ware, with well fitted covers are
best for pot-roasts and stews.
Porcelain enamel, aluminum and
granite are equally good for vegetable
and fruit cookery.
Steel frying pans are best for fry
ing, browning and pan broiling, for
they are lighter weight than iron
spiders and easier to handle. Special
iron kettles are made for deep fat fry
ing and they have a wire basket in
them for holding the articles to be im
mersed in the fat.
From experiments made by the
writer it seems that pies that contain
much .iuice are best maked in granite
ware plates but for pastry shells for
custard and similar pies the tins of
woven wire give best satisfaction.
Copper utensils are the worst possible
containers for food that ye have. The
labor necessary to keep it bright con
demns it from the first but articles
cooked in copper must not bo left iu it
a moment for copper and acids form
verdigis and this is a poison. If you

Why not convert into cash articles for which you
have no use. You may have just the thing that
someone else is seeking and anxious to purchase.
You ask, "HOW CAN IDO THIS?" The ques

Every member of the family should
use this fruit laxative as occasion de
mands. It is just as effective for
grandpa as it is for baby. It simply
cannot injure. Even cross, sick, fever
ish children just love its pleasant taste
and mothers can rest easy after giving
it, l)ecause it never fails to effect a good
"inside cleansing."
For thirty years "California Syrup of
Figs" has been recommended by physi
cians as the ideal stomach, liver and
bowel cleanser. Millions of families
who are well informed use nothing else,
but recently there has come a flood of
spurious fig syrups, so we warn the
public to ask plainly at drug stores for
a 50-eent bottle of "California Syrup
of Figs," and see that it is prepared by
"California Fig Syrup Company." We
make no cheaper size. Hand back any
"counterfeit" with contempt.—Adv.
have copper to clean make a weak so
lution of oxalic acid crystals and water
and immerse the utensil in this but
guard your fiugers for the acid bites.
Rinse the copper very well and polish
it with pumice stone and oil.
Keep your cookiug utensils in sight
and keep them in order and in good con
dition. The care of them is quite as
important as the proper choice of them.
"Will you please explain how you
make the old-fashioned walnut frames
into pretty modern trays as suggested
in your column some days ago?"
Reply.—Remove the picture from
frame and replace it with brightly fig
ured chintz. Fasten the back board in
firmly with tacks and cover the back
with felt glued on. Now buy a pair
of brass handles and attach one at each
end. These trays are almost identical
with those new tea trays of the fash
ionable world and are of all sizes, and
round, square or oblong.

"How can a rural dweller get hulled

Ito you by parcel post.' Someone will
i put barley into a fancy package and
double its price some day and then we

Fog looked up at him sadly and
shook her head. A moment later a
mischievous look came into her eyes,
and she said, with a roguish laugh:

save ou the occasional visits of his

And here was he In the full prime
of life.
Yielding to some uncontrollable im
pulse, he took her little hand in both
of his own.
Hawkes was not to be denied now.
He went ou in his softest and most
persuasive accents:
"1 know one who would give you all
these—a man who has reached the
years of discretion, one in whom the
follies of youth have merged into the
knowledge and reserve of early middle
age: a man of position and of means;
a man who can protect you, care for

"Miss O'Connell—may I say Mar

Hawkes paused.
"Don't give your answer too hastily.

Peg suddenly burst into a paroxysm
of laughter.
"Am 1 to consider that a refusal?"
"Ye may. What would 1 be dota'

"That Is final?" he queried.
"Absolutely, completely an' entirely

"I'm much obliged to ye. An* I'm

She hurried across the room to the
staircase. When she was halfway up
the stairs Jarvis entered and was Im
mediately followed by Jerry.
"Peg!" be said gently, looking up at
"I'm goin" back to me father In half

"Hello. Hawkes." replied Jerry, too
preoccupied to return the act of salu

"What does she mean—going in a

"She is returning to America. Our

the lawyer.
"I think not. Hawkes."
"1 beg your pardon?"
"As the chief executor of the late

with in the spirit as well as to tbo

"Mr. Kingsuortii expressly stipulat
ed that a year was to elapse before
any definite conclusion was arrived at.
So far only a month has passed."
"But she insists on returning to her
father," protested Mr. Hawkes.
"Have you told her the conditions of
the will?"
"Certainly not. Mr. Kingsnorth dis
tinctly stated she was not to know
"Except under exceptional circum

most exceptional."
"I am afraid 1 cannot agree with

Kingsnorth's last wishes by making

Miss O'Connell and then let her decide
whether she wishes to abide by them
or not."
Mrs. Chichester came into the reoo
and wont straight to Jerry. At the
same time Alartc burst In through the
garden and greeted .lerry and Hawkes.
"1 beard you were here"— began
Mrs. Chichester.
Jerry interrupted her anxiously.
"Mrs. Chichester. I was entirely to
blame for last night's unfortunate
business. Don't visit your displeasure
on the poor little child. Please don't!"
Jarvis came down the stairs with a
pained, not to say mortified, expression
on his face. Underneath his left arm
be held tightly a shabby little bag and
a freshly wrapped up parcel. In his
right hand, held far away from his

Jerry returned Alaric's smile as he

Alaric nodded.
