She believed heraelf a human being for tha time ahe should re main on earth, but not a. human being born of human parents.

That was what, ahe believed, with the com plete faith' of a little child. The Octagon fire did not really ihake Celestla's faith In herself, her origin or her destiny, but It set her to asking questions. What line must ahe draw be tween heraelf aa a human being au I her self as a Celestial? Already certain palna of thla- earth and certain pleasure! had been truat upon her. She had not been able to prevent the fire, or to escape its terrors. No more could she keep her heart from beating a little quicker whek ever aha thought of Tommy. Hov long was she to be a human being? Until her work was done a few years at best. She wctild have to eat and tn drink and to sleep. What other Indulgences could ahe grant heraelf?

Not only la this the rase, but men and women via with each other In con cocting this savory relish until It Is hard to aay whether the husband or the wife la tha greater artist In Its manufacture.

Deviled Mother-ln-Law ta a family dish, especially when It la particularly high seasoned, but occa sionally it U passed around to guests and acquaintances. This, however, la not good form. Deviled Mother-In-Law, like ripe watermelon, should only be partaken of In the privacy of the home circle. Good taate demands this. Also, It la to be observed that one of the peculiarities of thla plate la that while we all have an Insatiable appetite for the Deviled Mother-ln-Law of our own make, we do not in the least rare for that prepared by our friends, and a vary little of It satiates us and palls upon our palate. - To obtain a Mother-ln-Law for deviling it la never necessary to either buy It or to go out and hunt for one yourself.

So far -as Is known, women have no knack at preparing any variety of fweetened Mother-ln-Law, and never try their hands at anything but deviling It.
