"She has tired of the stage and gone into a con vent. You know she was always deeply religious," said one who claimed to be her beBt friend. "You know she studied medicine before she went on the stage. Maybe she has gone West to prac tloe," said another. "She wbb brought up on a ranch in Canada. Maybe she has heard the call of her country." "She made one trip around the world. She may be taking another." "Or the may have tired of America and gone back.to Europe. She had lived there for five'years." "Her uncle was Supreme Judge of Manitoba. She may be practicing law." Every guess was a wrong one.

What You Can Do with ERY few housewives realize how many things kerosene ? can accomplish better than anything else. A bottle or can of It 6hould be kept on hand in every house, for its uses are.numerous. A few drops in the water when washing windows or mirrors will add a beautiful polish. For cleaning porcelain tubs and wash basins it is "Don'ts" for Housewives JOSEPH HARTIGAN, New York City's Commissioner of Weights and Measures, has suggested the following "Don'ts'' for the house wife who does not want to suffer from the increased coBt of living any more than is absolutely necessary: Don't let the butcher weigh the paper in with your meat. Don't let the butcher touch the scales or remove the package until the indicator has come to a stop. Don't forget that the weight of bread must be plainly marked on the loaf or wrapper. Don't buy your sugar or flour by the package; buy them by weight. Don't let fancy packages fascinate you?you can't eat the package. Don't buy five or ten cents'...

UksA1 An EASY WAY to SAVE YOUR CHILDREN from BURNING TO DEATH By CHARLES F. PABST, M.D., of Brooklyn, N. Y. HARDLY a day passeB without at least one child meeting death or serious injury by burning. Playing with matches and bonfires are frequent causes of these tragedies, and they occur in all classes of society, among the rich as well as the poor. The number of them has doubtless increased since it he came popular to dress children in the garb of Indians and cowboys, for the fringe with which these costumes are ornamented is highly inflammable. During my service as Coroner's physician I waa called upon to investigate a great many of these fatali ties. So many of them could easily have been avoided or prevented that I became impressed with the neces sity for an organized crusade to teach the public how not only children, but older persons as well, can be saved from death or injury by fire. Such a crusade is what I am now carrying on through articles like this, through pamphlets and ...

Paris, November 27. iHH most extravagant society enter tainment ever given was the Jewel A ball of the Princess Jacques de Broglie, held immediately before the out break of the war. Sociologists cannot help remarking upon the extraordinary luxury of this entertain ment and the scenes of misery, ruin and terror which have followed bo closely upon It. Many of them argue that there Is a direct connection between such af fairs und tlio present world-wide catastro phe, because it is the desire for luxuries that lead nations into war. Many of the men who were present at thiB great ball have since been killed in battle. An equally large number of the brilliant young women who were the prin cipal ornaments...
