If you’re tired of groping in the
dark for a light switch or string,
try pointing these items with
luminous paint. The glow will
make it simple to turn on the
lights without searching all over
And, by the way, you can get
plastic protectors to go around
the light switches so they won’t
be smudged with fingermarks.

When you go to the dime store
buy a package of yellow scratch
paper and a pair of blunt-pointed

Cut the paper into squares. Fold
a square from corner to corner
3 or 4 times, then give it to one
of the children. Tell them to
cut the square several times.
When they unfold it they will be
amused to see the design they

Brighten Wintry Home —
This is a perfect day for letter
writing and sewing so I’ve been
doing some of both. One can al
ways find something that needs
a little patch or mending some
where and I enjoy sitting by the
fire these wintry days.
I had a letter recently from my
aunt in Montana. She writes
how monotonous it was staying
in the house so she had her son
hitch the tractor to the trailer and
take her for a ride. They ended
up by going into town 6 miles
away and felt much better when
they got home.
I received my garden seed
catalogs so I've been looking.
I won’t be making a garden
for awhile, but do enjoy the
pretty pictures of flowers. It
sort of makes it cheerful in
side when outside you look and
see nothing but snow. But we
really haven't had such a bad
winter so far.
We had a letter Christmas time
from relatives in Canada. They
didn’t get their grain all combined
before winter started. It was 45
degrees below zero. How do they
stand such weather and long win
ters? I guess it must be if it’s
your home you don’t mind bo

Let's Make Pressed Veal—
Get 4 pounds of veal shoulder
or shank meat and knuckle bone
from the butcher. Cover meat
and bone with water. Add l/z cup
carrots, 14 cup choped onion. 14
cup celery and allow to simmer
until the meat is tender. Drain
and reserve the broth. Let the
broth simmer until it is reduced
to 1 cup. Strain, cool and skim it.
Dice or grind the meat and add
to broth. Season with salt and
pepper. Decorate the mold with
slices of 3 hard cooked eggs. Pack
in veal mixture and chill.
SAYS SANDHILL SAL
A man is quite a diplomat, in
fact he is a sage, who remembers
a woman’s birthday and always
forgets her age.
You will never leave your foot
prints on the sands of time if
you spend all your time sitting
on the beach waiting for your
ship to come in.
