MEALS FOR INVALIDS.
Though neatness nnd cure In tho
preparation nnd serving of food nre
Important nt nil times,
thcro is no time when
they mean so much, ns
during tho tiresome days
of Illness. The desire for
food Is not strong nnd

person In henlth. A person who Is
111 Is out of bnlanco in mind nnd body,
and should bo treated with every In
dulgence. Small amounts of food should al
ways br served to n patient. It Is far
better for him to ask for more than
to he satisfied by the sight of too
much. Hot tilings should bo hot on
hot dishes, likewise cold foods should
be cold. It Is often n problem to carry
a tray fronf ono end of the house to
tho other nnd keep the food hot, but
a little thought will overcome the dllll
culty. A hot dish placed over the hot
food will keep It for some time. Tea
or coffee If served In a pot, will al
ways stay hot longer.

CHANGE RATIONS OF CHICKS
Suitable Mixture Recommended for
Youngster of Four Weeks Va
riety Is Needed.
Chick feeds, ns usually mndo up, uro
for small chicks only. A normal chick
of four weeks old has In n lnrge mens-
uro outgrown chick feed. At this age,
If not nlrendy started on something
coarser, n mlxturo something like tho
following should be fed : Ono hundred
ppunds of chick feed, 25 pounds of
wholo wheat, 25 pounds of courso
cracked corn or knflr corn. In a week
or two tho per cent of chick feed can
bo reversed nnd soon entirely omitted.
Tho Important tiling is to chnngo
feeds grndimlly nnd let tho period of
change lap over a week or two. Do
not try to muko tho chnngo by giving
occasional feeds, us of, suy, nil whole
wheat; rnthcr mix tho whent In, ns
indlcntcd in tho ubovo formula. Any
ono grain fed nlono Is not sufllclcntly
balanced to produco proper growth,
nnd, on tho other hand, Is so concen
trated In certuln food elements ns to
bo detrimental to proper digestion.
