Its worth is up to you. By ADELAIDE KENNERLY. ANEW JOB came to y6u yesterday. It had no definite shape just the same little job that comes to us all. You know the kind 1 . There isn't even a guide to show you the way to bring this new job this almost nothing-r-from obscurity into prominence. It brought no plans? Well, what of thatl None of them do. , ' And now you complain because it is small. Freely it came into your hads as a piece of plastic clay this little job that is entirely dependent on you. Will you mangle this clay or mould it? Will you smile upon it or scold it? Remember, it's entirely up to you. Can you make of it a colossal thing? Or, in the end, will there be noth ing to show for your work except a conglomeration of efforts misdirected, time wasted because interest was lacking, and because there was no love of labor? Will you and your job. that's only a baby job now, go down with the drifting tide of humanity into insignificance? Or can you bring up this charge to meet your fondest dreams? Put into your new little job a life, a soul, to grow and make you proud; bend every effort; tap all your resources before you give up and sink under a failure s cloud.- And remember, it s all up to you. You nd your job must be friends, not foes, or it will sicken and die. If you drag along bemoaning your fate, your chances to win are lost. Meet your new little job with a smile each day and a welcome in your, heart. Say to it: , "You're a baby now, but I shall try with my might to develop a worth while adult. I'll work with you, pray tor you, and sometimes fight for you. You are just like all other jobs. I am the jockey and you are the horse we start under the wire of chance all together, we winners and losers Some fall by the wayside and many keep up all the way at a modest pace. "The winners? "Why they smile and smile from the very beginning. Even though they may cry and have heartaches, they smile, because they have faith and courage ana love for work. "I know you are small merely a chancebut you shall be mighty some day, and it is I who will nourish you with labor and love." Take heart, you person with new little jobs of almost no consequence. A job is only the reflection of the man or woman who handles it. "Tall oaks from little acorns grow," and your job is what you make it. Actress Collects "Smokes' for Thespian In the Trenches A certain little actress sat waiting for her cue one evening and to while away the time she picked up a theatri cal magazine. Turning the pages she spied a letter 'headed "Somewhere in France." It was from a lonely soldier boy who had been an actor, too, be fore his enlistment. He told of the hardships of the trenches, of the long marches, of the wet and the cold, but none of these ills were as hard to bear as the dearth of tobacco. "All right, Miss Jordan," aroused the girl from her reading and. she had to hurry on to her act. As she balanced and bowed on her tight rope, her gay parasol bobbing above her head, her thoughts werenot on her work, nor on the sea of faces "out front," but far away in France with tne down-nearted jsaramy. She enlisted the help of her sis ter, Miss Josephine Jordan, and to gether 4hey started out to collect "smokes" for the boy. Two very de mure young women they are, but very determined, and as a result of their efforts evevy actor on the bill at the Orpheum this week has pledged a cer tain amount to the smoke fund. A certain Jack Cameron in the front line trenches will be a very happy man one of these days from the good ly array of cjgarets and tobacco that will be sent to him as a result of the work of these young women. The Misses. Jordans fill every spare moment with, work for the soldiers. Every month large packages go to the different forts. They have played at a number of cantonment camps and have made friends everywhere, so that their list grows every 'month. Their' fingers fly busily at their knit ting in between acts or while on the train. rA cousin, Will Currin, who en listed with the Canadians at the out break of the war, was killed in action not long ago. His brother has en- listed in the American army, to "fin ish the fight that Will started," as he says. JNieuie Jordan conhded with a pretty blush, that her husband was waiting for his call to the colors. "Oh, I will be so proud when he goes," she said, her face lighting up. The Misses Jordan have had inter, esting experiences in their travels about the world. In 1903 they were interned in Nagasaki, for it was during the Russo-Japanese war and every foreigner was eyed with suspicion. "Our father and mother played fn Omaha 22 years ago," said Miss Jor dan, "but they are now retired and at our home in New Jersey." , Wdr Time Tips Cream for whipping should be icy cold. Celery is more digestible when cooked. Each lettuce leaf should be washed separately. Try putting fruit instead of sugar on cereals. Salt codfish is a savory element in a breakfast. Drain sausage fat and use it in gingerbread. Excellent cookies are made with peanut butter. Very fat fish should not te given to young children. Small heavy heads of cabbage are generally the best. . Chicken fat or salad oil can be used for making pastry. The most sanitary way of disposing of dirt is by burning. . Loving a Child By Mary Carolyn DotIm. Loving a child ts key To Heaven's mytry. Loving- a child, and (tvlnr It knowledge, thla la living:. Loving- a 'child brings pain, . And is Ufa's greatest gain. Loving a child Is knowing The fierce joy of a sowing That shall, cause mighty reaping. Loving a child Is weeping. And fearing, too, and praying; This, there ic no gainsaying.

Loving a child Is laughter And heartache after. . Heartache and grief and pain. But always Joy again. Ice Cream Can Liners Save Tin The tin plate shortage has centered interest upon the c?i liner, a device with which many ice cream containers ordinarily discarded can be made serviceable and sanitary for a fraction of the cost of a new can, and with minimum use of new tin and steel. These liners are an important eco nomy to the ice cream trade just how, for ice cream makers purchase an enormous quantity of new cans year ly, and today are confronted not only with scarcity and rising cost of cans, but increased cost of milk, crtam, sugar, gelatin and other ingred ents, as well as increased taxes on flavoring extracts. Large Packages Economize Tin A backing powder concern in Chi cago is distributing a; placard to gro cers recommending that consumers purchase double size packages of all food articles packed in tin, thus sav ing about 35 per cent tin plate for use in ammunition. Baking powder is also recommended in connection with cornbread and a special booklet of war-time recipes is offered house wives who are interested.
