What Is Home?
Homo is not a name, nor a form, nor
a routine. It is a spirit, a presence, n
principle. Material and method will
not and cannot make it, says a writer
in tho Cooking School. It must get
its light and sweetness from those
who inhabit it, from flowers and sun
b'jlne, from tho sympathetic natures
which, in their exercise of sympathy,
can lay aside the tyranny of tho broom
and tho awful duty of endless scrub
bing. Irrigation In Kansas.
Great state, Kansas! There is
neither a mountain nor a mnrsh in all
her length and breadth of 82,000
enuaro miles. One-third of her area is
almost a barren steppe, owing to lack
of rain. Irrigation will mako tho dry
prairies a veritable "garden of the
west," raise tho Kansas corn crop to
300.000,000 bushels and lncrcaso her
live stock valuation to ?180,000,000.

Needs Only a Little Thinking.
Tho food of childhood often decides
r.'hothor one is to grow up well nour
ished and healthy or weak and sick
ly from Improper food.
It's Just a3 easy to be ono as tho
other provided wo get a proper start.
A wise physician like tho Denver
Doctor who knew about food, can ac
complish wonders provided the pa
tient is willing to help and will eat
only proper food.
Speaking of this case the Mother
said her little four year old boy was
suffering from a peculiar derangement
of the stomach, liver and kidneys and
his feet became so swollen ho couldn't
take a step. "We called a Doctor who
said at once we must bo very careful
as to his diet as improper food was
the only cause of his sickness. Sugar
especially, he forbid.
"So tho Dr. made up a diet and tho
principal food he prescribed was
Grape-Nuts and tho boy, who was very
fond of sweet things took tho Grape
Nuts readily without adding any
sugar. (Dr. explained that the sweet
in Grape-Nuts is not at all like cane
or beet sugar but is the natural sweet
of tho grains.)
"We saw big Improvement Inside a
fow days and now Grape-Nuts are al
most his only food and he Is onco
more a healthy, hap'v, rosy-chocked
youngster with every prospect to
grow up into a strong healthy man."
Namo given by Postum Co., Battlo
The sweet of Grape-Nuts is tho Na
turosweet known as Post Sugar, not
digested in tho liver like ordinary
migar, but pro-digested. Feed tho
youngsters a handful of Grape-Nuts
when Nature demands sweet and
prompts them to call for sugar.
There's a reason.

CARE IN TESTING FLOUR.
B'o Mills Take Pains to Ascertain
Quality of Output.
"It Is surprising to note tho differ
ence that oxlsts between tho various
brauds of Hour," said O. I). Hutchin
son, tho representative of ono of tho
big mills In Minneapolis, Minn. "It
nil depends on how tho Hour is milled
rnd ou tho kind of wheat from which
it is tcailc. Flour mndo from hard
spring wheat will give? from twenty
to forty core loaves of broad per bar

winter wheat. It contnlns a larger
percentage of gluten and absorbs
more water. Tho mills aro exceeding
ly careful about tho Kind of flour they
send out, and tho testing department
is ono of tho most important
"After tho flour is ground comes tho
crucial tost. A sample is taken and

"You may have noticed that1 tho col

white, but a creamy white. This comes
lrom tho fact that tho rich portion of
the grain, right undor tho woody coat

Trees Make Complaint.
When tho trees In his orchard nt
Fresno, Cal., aro getting cold feet or
chilled limbs, tlioy call Mr. J. P. .Bol
ton up on tho phone, so to speak, and
tell him to get up and put a hot wa
ter bottle or a blanket on them.
Mr. Bolton has had great trouble
with his orchards on tho slopes of
California mountains, whero sudden
frosts killed the buds at night.
But necessity proved tho mother of
an invention, which, though it keep3
him awako cold nights, gives him
enre-frco sleep between whiles.
Iu every row thcro Is a tree fitted
out with a thermometer and wires
connecting with an electric boll and
dial board in his bedroom.
Whenever the temperature Is too
tow for tho comfort of tho young buds.
In any row, tho "monitor tree" with
the thermometer registers a noisy
kick in Mr. Bolton's bedroom and
keeps it up until measures . avo boon
taken to wnrm the trees up.
The method in not to administer
whisky or chafo tho llmlm, but to
spread rolls of cloth about tho trees,
squirt warm water on them and leave
tubs of water about. These, by freez

Rats and Sulphur.
Hero is a farmer's inodo for ridding
Ms premises of rats and mice: "if
you will eprinklo sulphur on your
barn floor and through your corn as
jou gather it thero will not be a rat

Feveral years, and I have never been
bothered with rats or mice. I havo

English Legal Technicalities.
In English courts tho solicitors
must always appear in their robes. A
London newspaper of recent date con
tains tho following: "'1 can neither
see you nor hear you,' said Judge
Edgo to Mr. Turner, a solicitor at
Clerkenwell county court, when that
gentleman, who was unrobed, ro3e to
epposo a barrister's application to
havo a case adjourned. Mr. Turner
began to put on his robe, but Judge
Edge Interposed. 'Now, thnt will do,
he said. 'I will not have this court
made a robing room of. Next case.'
Mr. Turner protested that It was an
Injustice to his client, but the judge
ordered him to be silent."
Tho most puzzling thing about Eso

on Indian mattors, could not settle
