Haney, director of art in New York

lation of Art to Home and Commu
nity Life." Dr. Haney s father was
editor of the first comic newspaper
of New York, the Picayune. His
uncle, James Parton.Ms a famous lit
erateur. Here are the "do's":1
"Solve every question in decoration
as a problem in design. ,
"The good color scheme is the
quiet color scheme.
"Comfort should be sought before
elegance. Don't go in for period fur
niture unless you have a long purse
and a long head. Mission furniture
is only good for missionaries.
- "Taste means good choosing power.
Between ornate and plain choose the
"Strive for the cheerful' note let
your house smile."
The "don'ts" are these:
"Don't maintain a family museum
or a family morgue. We amortize
bonds; why not retire wedding pres
ents in similar fashion?
"Don't patronize fakes in imitation
carving, imitation anything else; have
the real or nothing.
"Don't try to keep up with the
Jones.' A well decorated house out
lives every passing fashion.
"Don't go in for 'art' decoration,
'art' vases, lamps, etc. These are al
ways things extreme and shout their
"Qon't despair. Make a beginning
by taking that thing in your home
which has worried you most and cast
it out today. The more you cast the
higher will grow your courage."

Important to "Kick" About Bad Food
By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D. smell good and taste good, and if it
doesn t it s somebody s lauit and gen
ii was long the fashion to jeer at
the man who iwas "finicky" about his
food, squeamish as to its cooking and
service, objecting to the hand of the
cook in his bread, thelhumb of the
waiter in his soup, exacting as to the
spotlcsaness of his napkin and table
cloth, the specklessness of his plates
and cups and spoons. But that very
fussiness, within reasonable bounds
of course, and intelligently directed,
is an "armor against Fate," a barrier
of steel against a score of serious
food diseases and infections, an assur
ance of probably at least five or even
ten more years of -lifetime, i
Alrea'dy there has been a falling oS
of at least 35, if not 50, per cent in
the frequency of dyspepsia, sour
stomach and other forms of chronic
indigestion, as well as in diarrhoea
and' dysenteries, due in part to our
enormously improved food supply;
with abundance of sugar, fresh meat,
green vegetables and fresh fruit the
whole year round. The "discovery"
of cheap sugar, with the canning and
preserving industries which it made
possible, was one of the most impor
tant events ill. human history, far
more epoch-making and beneficent
than any new form of government or
philospphy or religion.
This lessening of dyspepsia is due
in part to increased surgical skill, de
tecting and removing ulcers, smould
ering, inflamed appendixes, gall stones
and other Ethiopians in the abdomi
nal woodpile, which underlie much
chronic "stomach trouble." But
more than all to hygienic fussiness,
plain everyday "kicking," raising the
roof and refusing to eat whenever the
butter is rancid or soft, the bread
sour, the meat "gamy," the biscuits
soggy, the soup greasy, the vegetables
wilted, the milk clabbery, the fish
soft and "fishy," the hen-fruit over
ripe and fragrant, the pie crust tough
and rubbery, the cookies sawdusty.
All good food, all real food, should
erally somebody's dirtiness. 'We talk
(about a thing being "dirt cheap," but
dirt is the most expensive thing in the
world if you (at it. We may have
to eat our peck of dirt before we die
of it but the slower we .eat that
iky the longer it will take to kill us.
Better make the peck last as long
as possible. Delays are not half as
dangerous as dirt is. Nearly all dirt
contains bugs, and bugs "raise hades"
with our '-'lining." No dirty water or
milk or fly-blown food, no typhoid,
no diarrhoea, no dysentery, no colic
or cholera, cither Asiatic or home
grown, and very, very little dyspepsia,
sour stomach, biliousness, flatulence
or chronic liver troubles, including
gall stones and jaundice, which are
due to the infection of the gall blad
der by dirty food bugs, usually ty
phoid bacilli. About a third of all
dropsies, and the worst to handle,
are caused by food infections of. tlc

heart and kidney mischiefs, respec

whenever you see a speck or small
suspicion of dirt anywhere in or near
your food, and you'll save or indefin

Cupid and the Rose
By Jan keLeu.
, Cuptd, tired of fun and pleasure,
Fell asleep one ummer day ---Near
a rose who In aomc meeaurt
Kept the blaainc sun away.
For the sun had heard of Cupid,
And he tried with glance bold ,
Juat to wi3, though It wu stupid,
If his eyes were blue or gold.
Finally Cupid waked from slejsptnr, .
Made as if to quickly rise;
Bald the rose, "A charm for keeping .
Sunlight from your bonny eyes."
"That's enough." And Cuptd lightly ,
Threw some moss into her face.
That's the way the pink moss rosebud
Came to grow around the place.

Military dispatches by carrier pigeons are
inserted in a small gooseqnul about two
inehes in length. The quill is pierced close
to each end with a red-hot needle, so as not
to split it, and in the holes waxed silk
threads are inserted to affix it to the strong
eat tail feather. By attaching the message
tothis part of the bird's body its flight is
not in any way interfered with.
