Tea, to be used as a beverage,
should not stand on the leaves longer
than five minutes; if longer, it will
taste like a "stew." Lemon juice
squeezed, into hot tea, is good for
the complexion. For a nervous per
son, put a clove or two in the cup of
tea and drink it quite hot. Rook
candy is an excellent sweetener for
tea. Maraschina cherries are often
dropped into the teacup.

Mrs. M. K. It ts perfectly natural
with many girls to despise cooking
and housework, and this Is by no
means a reflection on them, if they
are neat and careful and willing to
do other things. If given the work
she loves, most of girls will develop
into- useful, .independent women. Let
ner learn one thing thoroughly.
Agnes M. You quote "Tho ugly
wrinkles between tho oyo-brows at
the root of the nose aye tho result
of uncontrolled, irritable, peevish
temper," and ask if it is so. I do
not think it is so regarded by phy
siognomists; but they claim they are
caused by deep thought and close
study. Any how, you seldom see a
really intelligent, thoughtful person
but what has them.

REASONED IT OUT
And Found a Change in Food Put
A man does not count as wasted
the time ho spends in thinking over
his business, but he seems loth to
give the same sort of careful atten
tion to himself and to his health.
And yet his business would be worth
little without good health to care
for it. A business man tells how he
did himself good by carefully think
ing over, his physical condition, in
vestigating to find out what was
needed, and then changing to the
"For some years I had been
bothered a great deal after meals.
My food seemed to lay like lead in
my stomach, producing heaviness and
. dullness and sometimes positive
pain. Of course this rendered me
more or less unfit for business, and
I made up my mind that something
would have to bo done.
"Reflection led me to the conclu
sion that over-eating, filling the
stomach with Indigestible food, was
responsible for many of the ills that
human flesh endures, and that I was
punishing myself in that waythat
was what was making me so dull,
heavy and uncomfortable, and unfit
for business after meals. I concluded
to try Grape-Nuts food to see what
it could do for me.
"I have been using It for some
months now, and am glad to say that
I do not suffer any longer after
meals; my food seems to assimilate
easily and perfectly, and to do the
work for which it was intended.
"I have regained my normal
weight, and find that business is a
pleaBuro once more can take more
interest in it, and my mina is
clearer and more alert."

For White Goods
White waists or dresses that have
turned yellow from lying too long
should be dipped in boiling water
in which a tablespoonful of cream
of tartar has been dissolved, rubbing,
or "sousling" about for a few
minutes, then rinsed thoroughly.
Another method of bleaching is to
add a tablespoonful of coal oil to
each pail of water in the boiler, put
the articles in and let boil for twenty
minutes, then remove from boiler
into very hot water and rinse, hang
ing in the sun to dry. Those having
a washing machine get along much
better than without.
