ON BUSINESS BASIS
WISDOM OF KEEPING KITCHEN
WRITER OF REAL TALENT.
With Absolute Knowledge of Running
Expenses Economy Is Made Easy
Hired Help Always Prone
The head of the household some
times concludes that it costs too much
to live, and when he makes this deci
sion nothing commands his respect
like an account book wherein bal
ances are made without accommodating
"sundries." In fact going to market
and keeping household accounts are
the housekeeper's weapons of self-defense
against the charge of extrava
gance, writes Alice K. Whitaker.
It is comparatively easy to account
for rent, fueL light and wages, and
even the larger bills for clothing can
be fairly well itemised from receipted
bills and memory. Therefore the
most common point of attack is the
food supply. The mistress 01 tne
household may insist that nothing is
wasted and that the family would not
be satisfied with cheaper food, but un
less she can keep an account book she
has nothing to prove that she could
not have spent less for food material.
A housekeeper frequently says to
herself: "It seems to me that we are
buying butter every other day." or
I"m sure that we are using a dozen'
eggs a day. 11 sne nas an account
book she can prove the truth of her
surmises or otherwise. One house
keeper annoyed at the recurring calls
for coffee and butter ior her family
ot three sat down to her account book
and In five minutes found that six
pounds of coffee and ten pounds of
butter had been used during the pre
vious month. She immediately cut
two pounds from the future coffee sup
ply and cautioned against extrava
gance in butter.
Another way of saving is buying in
small amounts. - Our grandmothers
extolled the plan of buying in a whole
sale way because wholesale prices are
less than retail, but our grandmothers
had a constant oversight over the use
of both groceries and provisions, and
this Is now frequently impossible. In
most kitchens today everything that
is brought in will be cooked by the
servants at one time and the surplus
thrown away. Therefore if a pound
of 30-eent steak is enouinv it Is waste
ful to buy l"i pound, or a quart of
oysters when a pint will be sufficient,
under the delusion that the left overs
win be used to advantage.
It is wise to dispense with the order
clerk at the door, and especially with
liberty given to servants to order as
they please. Often from ignorance,
and as often from mere lack of in
terest, they order needless things. Go
to the grocery stores and markets,
see what you can buy, and bow much
tt costs. This means a little effort,
but it soon becomes a habit and a
pleasure. Many housekeepers will
testify that it is not so hard to think
what to buy whea In the presence of
the various good things, some of which
on that particular morning can be
bought at aa advantage.
It is not unlikely that there will be
a premeditated block to this system
of looking closely after the table sup
plies, and in the middle of the after
aooa the cook may announce that she
has no baking powder or that she
must have some more eggs. Then is
the time to be firm and to change the
Beam. or. if anything be imperative,
to go for it yourself. After a time it
win be understood that there is to be
ao more reckless aad indiscriminate

The editor ot the Bushby Clarion
leaned back in his chair and surveyed
his visitor with a solemn and unwink

said, impressively. "Well, there is.
There's Gid Hobart.
"What sort of work can he doT
asked the visitor.
"His capabilities havent had their
fun chance yet," said the editor, slow

we shaU lose him before long. "Why,

"No, sir!" said the editor. "It was

was. I can tell you, that takes talent!
We cant expect to keep Gid with us

Doctor Said to Use Cuticura.
"Six months after birth my little girl
broke out with eczema and I had two
doctors In attendance. There was not
a particle of skin left on her body, the
blood oozed out just anywhere, and we
had to wrap her in silk and carry her
on a pillow for ten weeks. She was the
most terrible sight I ever saw. and for
six months I looked for her to die. I
used every known remedy to allevi
ate her suffering, for it was terrible
to witness. Dr. C gave her up. Dr.
