One reason why the food that we cat when we are away on holidays always seems so well cooked and so much more tempting than that which we have at homes is because our appetities have been stimulated by the change of air. The chances are, also, that we have spent more time outdoors, that we have exercised our bodies, and thus have made ourselves hungry. TRY STARVLNG. In ordinary cases of loss of appetite a little sensible starving is not a bad idea. When children lose their appetites, most mothers try to get something to tempt them. They feel seemingly that if the child goes without a meal or eats lightly for several meals, he is in danger of fad ing away entirely.

CHEER-UP TALKS SAFE ANCHORAGE (By "Irven.") -A friend came in to me on Monday with my last "Cheer-up Talk" in her hand and said. "Irven, do you. really nman this about house duties not being as important as we think?"

You have buzzed round like a bee in a bottle all day because you want everything just perfect. Put you hav6 not only done an incredible amount of duties which, be it said for the excuse...
