Notwithstanding all the jokes on
the subject in the "funny papers,"
every one, even in the remote back
woods, seems to understand that pie
should not be eaten with a knife or
a spoon, but with the fork provided
for the purpose. It is when half a
dozen different forks are arranged
beside the plate at a formal dinner
that the social neophyte is some
times at a loss to know which to
use for each of the courses served.
The newly rich are apt to overdo in
silverware. One such hostess ad
dressing a distinguished savant
among herdinner guests, said, "I
hope you have all the forks you need,
To which that scholarly exponent
of plain living and high thinking re
plied as courteously as he could,
"Thank you; I think there is every
sort of fork at my plate excepting
a pitchfork 1",
A safe rule is to take the fork at
the outside Jot the first course, the
next one fo"r the succeeding course,
and so on. Well-trained servants
generally place the forks in the or
der of use. .

Quaker Minister Is
Grateful to Tanlac
Rev. Parker Moon,
Nearly everybody in Southwest
Missouri either knows or has heard
of the Rev. Parker Moon, who for
a full half century has devoted his
life and talents to Sunday school
and organization work for the So
ciety of Friends' or Quakers. He
resides at 628 Howard avenue,
"Uncle Parker," as he is more
familiarly known, came from fine
old rugged Quaker stock, and there
is not a better known or more high
ly respected citizen in that part of
the state. In referring to his re
markable restoration to health by
Tanlac, he said:
"About five years ago I suffered
a general breakdown. My principal
trouble was nervous indigestion. My
appetite was very poor and my food
seldom agreed with me, and I had
to live on a very restricted diet. I
suffered a great deal from headaches
and dizzy spells; I had severe pains
across the small of my back and
was badly constipated most of the
time. In fact, I was so weak and
rundown I was not able to attend
to my duties.
"This condition made me very
nervous and 1 could not sleep at
night Frequently I would lie awake
most all night and was in that con
dition more or less for five years.
My physician said he could not do
anything for me and .suggested a
change of climate. I then moved
to Texas and went back and forth
three times but did not set th re

Amicus: Here are Rome sugges
tions lor indoor games:
On 12 cards have pasted sym
bolic pictures which represent
'days which we celebrate" through
out the year. Have these numbered
consecutively and past) In order to
each guest, allowing half a minute
in which to think what day the pic
ture represents. Ho writes the
name of the day on a paper which
is numbered according to the man
ner in which the cards are passed.
No one is allowed to speak during
the process. Thv days may be
represented as follows:
New Year's day: New Year and
St Valentine's day. A heart.
AVashington's birthday: A bunch
of cherries or hatchet.
St. Patrick's day: A four-leaf
April Fool day: Clown in dunce

Decoration day: A basket of
Fourth of July: Firecracker or
Halloween: A pumpkin.
Thanksgiving : A Puritan.
Christmas eve: An empty stock
ing. Christmas day: A filled stock
ing. A Bird Spelling Bee.
The leaden commences with the
name of any bird, spelling It, say
"t-e-a-1." The second player must
spell the name of a bird beginning
with "L," say "1-a-r-k." The third
one must have a "K," cay "ki-n-g."
The word bird may be left off the
name, as that would call for too
many d's in the game.

so bad off I was not able to get
around with any degree of comfort.
I was also told I had heart trouble.
"1 had read about Tanlac and, as
it bad been very highly recom
mended to me, I decided to try it.
I got a bottle and had taken only a
few doses until I could notice a
marked improvement in my condi
tion. I noticed especially that I
was not troubled any more with
sour stomach after eating, which
was a great relief.
' "I kept on taking Tanlac until I
fully regained my health. My appe
tite is splendid; I enjoy my meals
and I do not find it necessary now
to take any laxative medicines of
any kind. I can sleep much better
and a: 1 not nearly so nervous.
"I tJ. . -r?at pleasure in recom
mending i..:::ac to anyone who
needs a good system builder, or
who suffers with stomach -trouble.
I have recommended Tanlac to a
great many of my friends and am
pleased to reach others by giving
this statement for publication."
