APPEARANCES COUNT> j
There is an old saying that
'“clothes make the man.” Wheth-
er we realize it or not, we are
judged by the appearance we
make. It is only natural to asso-
ciate success with the man who
looks the part. The difference in
cast between the well groomed
man and the one with a poor ap-
pearance is usually small. It is
only a matter of care. A few
«ents for laundry, pressing, a
.shave and a shine represents well
invested capital and frequently
paying big dividends in the form
of inspiring confidence in one’s
As it is with men, so it is with
farms. Appearance count for
much more than is generally
thought. A farm with broken
«down fences, sagging gates,
weather-stained houses, dilapi-
dated barns, pastures overgrown
wftth bushes or weeds, proclaim
that the owned thereof is a fail-
Again as with men, just a little
work and time will be all that is
needed to make such a home far
more pleasing in appearance.
There may be some cost to get-
the needed materials for repairs,
but it is so small (compared to
the good it will do that it is neg-
ligible. During the winter months
there is not much field work be-
ing done. It is the logical time
to do the things which will add
so much to the appearance of the
farm home. A well kept farm be-
gets success. —Farm and Ranch.
good egg sauces for fish or meat
can be made with the yolks only,
and soft custard for desert is still
another use. Pastry trimmings,
cut out like cookies, brushed with
egg yolk, sprinkled with sugar
and cinnamon or sugar and grat-
ed orange rind, and baked, make
delicious tea cakes.
CAN’T BE MADE HAPPY
ONLY SAFE PLACE FOR
MEN IS IN THE GRAVE
SAYS UNIVERSITY PRES.
Starch clothes wrong side out.
Leave them wrong side out until
they are sprinkled.
Soaking any kind of fresh meat
in water before cooking it is a
mistake. It draws out the juices
which give the characteristic of
flavor and add to its food value.
Before cooking simply wipe meat
off with a damp cloth or trim it.
Remember that the table is a
place for good comradeship Avith
one’s children and not for dis-
cipline or nagging. Take it for
granted that the child will eat
happily everything served to him
and be sure that he becomes ac-
quainted Avith a variety of foods.
Left over egg yolks have many
uses. They are a valuable source
of iron and so should always be
utilized. They may be hard-
cooked in the double boiler,
mashed and seasoned for sand-
wich filling. Raw or hard cooked
egg yolks make a good founda-
tion for salad dressings. Several
Because there isn’t land, Avater,
air, money, affection, ethics
enough to go around. Saying
nothing about happiness, it’s hard
for a man to get even a square
The reason is that every man’s
idea of a square deal is a little—
Avhat’s the word?—goofy. When
Smith’s dog tramples your rad-
ishes, and his car splashes up
your vest, and his kids make
Avhoopee on your freshly painted
steps, and he takes three-fourths
of the time on your party line
telephone, and his cats make your
night hideous and his radio
booms till tAvo a. m., you think
Smith isn’t giving you a square
deal. Yet Smith thinks you
ought to beam Avith gratitude that
an inscrutjablje, Providence gave
you such a fine neighbor.
That all concerns home life.
But in business it’s quite the
same. The people Ave deal Avith
get sore because Ave want to take
a couple of extra months to pay
the bill or they get upset Avhen
Ave send back a dress we’ve Avorn
to the party. They don’t seem
inclined to ghre us a square deal,
to say nothing of making us hap-
py.—* ‘,Spinal Colyums. ’ ’
Fort Worth.—“I am frequent-
ly asked, ‘Is the college a safe
place for our American youth?’
I don’t think that it is,” says
President E. M. Waits of Texas
Christian University. Then he
hastens to add: “The only really
safe place for young men or old
is in the grave.”
“A college is a good place in
AArhich to groAv, and groAvth im-
plies danger, since it means the
possibility of groAving worse as
Avell as better. Perhaps one of
the most difficult things in our
American life is to be normal and
yet not be narrow minded. It
is this thing Ave seek for our col-

expressed himself at length upon

CLAUD CALLAN SAYS
“Make people think you are
prosperous and you will have lots
of friends,” our wife says to us
ever so often. “Always make a
show of prosperity and people
will be glad to help you. They
will work their heads off for you
if you don’t need help, but ibey
won’t do anything for you if they
think you are poor. My obser-
vation convinces me that If peo-
ple think you are overfed they
will prepare banquets for you'
but if they think you are hungry
they won’t trouble themselves to
give you even a crust.” Well our
wife may be right but what puz-
zles us is how to go about making
people think we are prosperous.
When a poor man has a wife and
six children is just simply impos-
sible for him to keep poverty out
