The prosecution in Iho now famous
Idaho-Haywood case has begun unfolding the most terrible story of crime that
has ever been repeaterl in this country.
Alfred Horsier, alius Harry Orchard, ii
the chief witness for the state nnd has
already confessed to enough alleged participation in criu.e and murder to place
him In a position where no sensible
man could del sore In anything he fays.
When a man becomes so utterly lost to
every sense of decency as to become tho
paid assassin, not merely in one case,
but as he pretends to confess In scores of
them, where he was lhe direct means of
lhe murder, it must bo txpected that
he would not be-i:atc lo duplicate tho
criintj if it could bo committed without
lhe necessity fir actually sinking tho
blow. Ilia testimony llil-vefore reaches
not merely to the implication of Haywood, M >ycr and Peltihone in the asa-
arEination of cx-Govirncr Stucnberg,
but gifts directly to tin foundation of
one of lhe strongest labor organizations
in the world, and oinsequently affects

Frederick Starr of Chicago University, During His Recent Trip ts
the Very Heart of Darkest Africa.
���Cannibalism  Practiced.
The eminent scientist. Prof. Frederick Starr of Chicago University,
says that one of the most important
results of hla vIbH to the Congo region of Africa was his discovery that
the natives of that part of the world
play the child's game of oat's cradle.
The learned professor was in earnest
too. His journey of 22,000 miles was
no joke, and lie took his life1 in bin
hands when he went into the heart
of the African jungle. He undertook
the trip to study the pygmies of tin
Congo region, nnd he spent 15 months
in his quest for information aboul
these and other tribes of the dark
continent, yet the distinguished ani
thropologist declares, without a smile
that ho found nothing which interested him more than the fact thai
eat'B cradle is the popular social di
version in the colored society of tin
Congo. Just why the professor at
tacheB so much importance to tbii
circumstance he does not explain.
We must wait, he says, till he make!
his report on the subject. It is known,
however, that anthropologists hav��
built theories of possible relation'
ships between peoples or the mingling of races by tracing the history oi
familiar games through the centuries
or the variations in a central idea oi
a game in widely separated nations,
The professor is not the first ethnologist who has noted the popularity
of cat's cradle among primitive peoples. It is even said that pious missionaries while waiting to be chopped up and boiled for dinner by dusky
Savages whom they failed to convert
have observed these simple-minded
people killing the time before the
least by playing with loops of string
and making the cat's cradles just aa
the very little folks do in Canada.
Apropos of cannibalism it may be
remarked that Prof. Starr found it to
be practiced to a limited extent among
the pygmies of the Congo. It would
hardly be fair, however, to call it
cannibalism of the same variety us
practiced by tho more savage tribes,
Says the professor. The pygmies do
riot kill other human beings in order
to eat them, but sometimes eat the
flesh of children or old people when
Ihey die. Cannibalism in times of
famine is not peculiar to the tribes
bf Africa, but is found among many
people. The Indians of this continent,
who were not cannibalB, as a rule,
often In days gone by ate the hearts
of captives taken in battle, the practice being more in the nature of an
act of symbolism than of a feast, and
having to do with their religious
Prof. Starr deems the natives of
the Congo to be bright and intelligent. He visited more than twenty-
tribes of them and, on the whole,
fairly good time among both
the "big iftkLthe little people of the
pountry. Tne latter are not so dark as
the larger natives, and he thinks they
fcre unrelated to the ordinary negroes
fcnd belong to a race which for many
centuries, if not from its creation,
has been distinct from the surrounding peoples. On tho Kufui and Batua
rivers, where he spent the most time,
they grow the smallest, from three
feet ten inches to four feet two inches.
The professor explored many of the
tributaries of the Congo river and
���was the second white man to ascend
tone of them, the Oiku river. For
lome months after his departure into
the African wilderness nothing was
heard from him, and It was feared
he might have fallen a prey to the
oruelty of the people he went to investigate, but in due time he turned
up safe and sound, with the young
Mexican, Manuel Gonzales, whom he
adopted as a boy and who acts as
his photographer. The adventurous
ethnologist is a bachelor and could
therefore follow the leadings of his
scientific study without causing anxiety to a wife and family during his
prolonged absence ln the depth of the
Congo jungles.

A feature of Newfoundland which
strikes a newcomer wherever he goes
about the coasts is the type of sailing craft affected by the inhabitants.
All the sailing vessels, almost without exception, are schooners. Thej

they are all schooners. They are beautiful boats, and are eviduntly very serviceable. The majority of them are
built. I believe, in Newfoundland,

You will rarely find a Newfoundlander living inland. They aro born
and bred for the sea. If they do not
go in schooners they go    in    small
boats, and they go big distances antl
face dirty weather in these same small
boats. They have a place for lighting
a fire to boil water, etc. It does look
Bomewhat alarming to see a    small
boat of this size bobbing up and down
on the crests of 1t>ig waves, with two
or three men in her, and smoke issuing from somewhere aboard. There
is  no  chimney  or  anything  for  the
smoke to pass through. This alarming
view of such an occurrence is not that
of the Newfoundlander, of course. For
a good part of the year these peoph*
are on the sea. What a nursery  fr
sailors I What a recruiting reserve to
our    navy!     Where    in     all     the
Empire    have    we    such    a    field?
When our home supply is exhausted
where shall we look? In Newfoundland most men are sailors, and all are
loyal and true to the old flag.
Attitude Towards Colonies.
Why is it that in the Old Country
the general attitude of a large section
of  the  people  towards the    various
Colonies is one of superiority and patronage; an attitude which would bo
well  expressed   in  the -words,  "Just
take what you get and be thankful"?
Neither  governing  party  is  more  to
blame than the other. Nor need one
blame a political party alone. In social and club life at home one finds
this   same  vulgar  spirit.   Indeed,   it
may even be that various vexatious
and  irritating steps taken by different  Home Governments    have    had
their origin in this prevalent clubland
spirit. In any case, it is not in political  relations  alone that this attitude
of many in the Mother Country finds
expression.  It is found in  other relations. It is keenly resented, wherever found; and small wonder!
Kind and Simple Folk.
The  people  of  Newfoundland    are
very hospitable and kind,  and they
are a simple folk. I have been entertained and treated as if I had been
known for years to my hosts, instead
ol having suddenly dropped into their
midst, and never before having been
heard of by them. This is only one
instance, but it is fairly typical. As
one goes round the various harbors,
one is impressed by the number of religious denominations   in    evidence,
even in communities of smal" size. In
a village of 300 people, young and old,
more  or less,  you  may  quite  likely
find Methodists, Episcopalians,    Salvation  Army followers, and    Roman
Catholics. In some you may even find
a fifth division,    Presbyterians;    but
these latter are not as a rule very
numerous,  though   theirs  is  quite  a
respectable total. In a few communities they may be the most numerous,
but this is a rare thing to find. Frequently it is found that Roman Catholics   are  the  sole  inhabitants  in
one harbor, while in the next there
are  only  Protestants; or when they
both live in the same community, one
section of the village is exclusively
Protestant while the other is Roman

Told Different Versions of a Story on
Three Occasions.
The Revue Hebdomadaire publishes
an anecdote on Victor Hugo which by
many will be considered very characteristic. Right after Napoleon III.'s
coup d'etat Victor Hugo and Schoel-
cher, a well known politician of that
period, fled together from Paris. A.
short time afterward, when Hugo met
Scboelcher at his table in Brussels, the
poet said: "Yes, my dear friend, you
can boast of having once Beared me
very much. I bad no doubt but that
we were done for." Turning to the
other guests, he explained:
"We were on the way to the Northern railroad depot and were sitting silent and uneasy in the omnibus, our
hats drawn deep over our foreheads.
Presently a regiment of infantry passed by with flying colors and resounding music. At the sight Scboelcher forgot all caution aud, leaning out ot the
window, shouted, 'Down with Caesarl'
Instantly I caught hold of him and
closed his mouth with my hand. Oue
word more and we should have been
doue for."
Two years later Schoelcher visited
bis friend Hugo in Guernsey. At diuner again tbe coup d'etat was discussed, and the poet called forth recollections of times pnst "Do you still recollect, Scboelcher," he asked, "the day
of our flight? We really came off very
lucky. But didn't we act like madmen, shouting 'Down with Caesarl'
wbeu that regiment wns passing by?
Of course we were too Indignant to be
nble to keep our temper."
Several years lapsed, and again
Scboelcher was a guest ln Hugo's
house. Conversation turned to civic
courage and the like. "Well, my dear
Schoelcher," Hugo said to his friend.
"I must tell you something I have
had in my heart for years. In a critical moment of your life you showed a
weakness which grieved me deeply.
You will recollect that day when we,

'Possum Scared Elephant.
Size isn't everything, as the 'possum
at the Toronto Riverdale Zoo doubtless could state, if its language were
translatable. The once popular song
had it, "Says the ant to the elephant
who are you shoving?" There was
something of this nature at the Zoo
recently when the 'possum strayed
from its cage and nearly broke up
the happy home of the elephant. The
'possum in its midnight ramble, so
scared the big specimen of Elephas
Africanus that the latter set up a dismal wail, and the dissembling little
creature was fain to seek other shelter. This was no less a place than
at the feet of the sleeping lioness, and
when the keeper discovered the situation the lioness resented the keeper's intrusion on her domestic affairs.
She evidently waa pleased with the
'possum's trust, and wished to adopt
the stranger. However, the 'possum
was removed by means of a rake.

Shelley, who left In 1810. This was
Mr. Hammond, a senior fellow of Morton college when I was an Inquiring
junior. About 1870 he told me all that
I could extract from hlm about the
poet. 'Shelley was not a clever boy: he
never was sent up for good,' which
means, I conceive, that he never did

The Names of Tea.
We talk glibly about Pekoe, Bohea,

whut these names signify. "Pekoe"
lu the dialect of Canton means "white

name is made from the youngest
leaves, so young that the white down

same dialect Is a quite unpoetlc name.
It merely signifies "small kind."
"Flourishing spriug" is the meaning
of "Hyson." "Kongo" signifies "labor." Much trouble and toil are expended in its preparation at Amoy, and
these are commemorated in its name.

She Remodels Her
otmmm   Sleeves     	
NOT every girl can afford a new
gown each reason. On the
other hand, there Is no girl
who can afford ��� from the
standpoint of her looks���to wear a
last year's gown unaltered. Many of
ui do It, alas! though there is
really little excuse for such a lamentable lack of interest In keeping up
to date.
After all, it ls not such a difficult
matter to remodel an old gown. For
the girl who can go to her modiste
or tailor for renovation*, the thing
ls simplicity Itself; but even the home
dressmaker will find herself repaid
many times over for her trouble
when Hhe wears a dress that ls so
rejuvenated as to prevent Its recognition as an old and true friend.
Often a few simple alterations will
tranrform the whole character of a
gown. Usually the skirt, especially
If It was wt'll cut and of late model
when new, need not be touched. As
a rule, the most radical changes lie
ln the sleeve; If that ls refashioned
and made modern and the trimmings
of the blouse freshened up a bit, the
entire gown will seem like new.
Never has there been a season when
sleeve remodeling was more necessary
than this spring; and never, happily,
have the possibilities of that remodeling been stronger or more easily
True, except in point of length���
and even now there are whlspera
that the long sleeve will soon have
Its Inning once more���the sleeve of
1907 ls very different from that of
last year. The new shapes all tend
to the Japanere or kimono effects;
namely, small at the shoulder and
broadening toward the elbow. As for
the trimming, It literally means the
sleeve itself, so befrilled and fluffy la
the up-to-date arm covering.
Much drapery is seen, and often
combinations of several kinds of material. Take one of the so-called simple sleeves of the fancy blouse; as It
falls flat from the shoulder, where It
ls slightly fulled, It sp. 3ads considerably ln width to a band cuff,' over
which It droops In "bell" effect. But
both the sleeve and cuff are as elaborately covered with lace tucks and
embroidery as the front of the waist
For afternoon and evening gowns
the double sleeve prevails, the outer
cap matching the material of the
gown. The shape of this varies. One
very new form ls exactly like tho
long flowing sleeve of a daughter of
Japan. Another very popular model
la a regular little cape, the length of
which Is split to the shoulder.
Even evening sleeves follow these
same   lines.    One   lace   model  has   a
long-pointed  outer  sleeve,   twice   the
length of the under one.
It Is on this undersleeve that the hope
of the remodeler must rest. Here she
can add all those new touches that
will turn a hopelessly old-fashioned
gown into one thoroughly erood style.
The undersleeve has but one fixed
rule���It must be soft and fluffy, usually transparent. The greatest liberty of material and cut Is permitted.
It may be of lace, tulle, lingerie, net
or of chiffon to match the gown,
though the white, cream or ecru materials are prettiest. This sleeve can
be tucked or puffed or be formed of a
dozen little ruffles. This last Is probably the favorite form of the moment.
A charming undersleeve of this kind,
which would freshen the most hopelessly out-of-date gown, Is to form a
puff of the thinnest kind of chiffon
or net, adding to It a half dozen ruffles of two or three Inch lace, so put
on as to slightly overlap.
Take a rather full puff of last year's
broadcloth afternoon gown In light
color. Cut It from the band, remove
some of the fulness from the top,
slash It sharply up thc centre, pipe
the edges with velvet or satin of a
contrasting shade, drape It over one of
these lace ruffled undersleeves, and you
will have a thoroughly modern and
easily remodeled sleeve.
Instead of having this lace sleeve
end as In the picture, the puff may
descend a little below the last ruffle
and be caught ln a twist of ribbon.
A pretty French touch Is to make
this twist of pale pink or blue ribbon, quite Irrespective of the trimming or color of the gown.
If ono has a waist of several seasons
back, with a full, baggy puff at the
top, rip it out, steam and press it
carefully, then Invert It and cut Into
one of the new "bell"-shaped caps,
put In nearly plain at the top. Trim
with bias-stltched folds of the material, add a double garniture of button*, and wear over a tucked undersleeve of chiffon.
The striped silk model shows a very
easy and most attractive way to cut
a new cap from an old sleeve. The
combination of bias and horizontal
stripes, with the stitched bands aj-ound
the armholes, makes it possible to
evolve this sleeve out of small scraps
of material, as the Joining can be
hidden under the stitching. The pipings of velvet and trimming of velvet buttons can be repeated on the
waist with a surprisingly good effect.
The undersleeve of tucked net, with a
baby Irish cuff, Is very simple und easy
to make.
The small braid-trimmed cap of
crepe de chine over a double-puffeil
dotted net undersleeve shows that
even the scantiest materials may be
utilized. There are few old sleeves
from which one could not cut such a
shallow "bell"-shaped cap.
If one has a lingerie or erepe de
chine sleeve too small for the present-
day styles,  It can  easily be widened
with lengthwise bands of Insertion
Into a very effective model of the
much-trimmed sleeve of the hour.
A very pretty lace sleeve to an
evening gown can be made from a
small, long jautt by cutting it up the
middle, shirring its length Into a
short mousquetaire and joining the
piecing under a broad lace ruffle that
outline? the bottom of the sleeve and
runs to the shoulder. Or the puff
can be shortened and made to appear
fuller by an added ruffle of lace over
the shoulder. Folds of liberty satin
brought around the bottom of this
sleeve crossed and fastened at the back
with a chou makes a charming garniture.
The old-time drooping puff can be
easily reeut Into a modern double puff,
with a band of braid between the
puffs, If of heavy materials, or, !f of
a light silk or cotton goods, it can
be cut Into four rather flaring and
laee-trlmmed ruffles sewed to a narrow foundation.
Thc akeleton waist fashion makes
feasible many recuttlngs of an old
sleeve. Often, If there is not enough,
to make an upper part, small straps
or band.: or shield-shaped open cuffs
of the dress material can be added to
the blouse sleeve. Another treatment
of the bell-shaped cap slashed up the
centre  can   bt  made  by  having each

rjde a series of four small cape-like
pieces overlapping each other about
two Inches apart. Each of these
pieces should be piped or trimmed
with braid or Insertion.
Oue old-fashioned short puff to an
evening gown was given the modern
long-shoulder effect by the addition of a
shaped piece of the material covering
the entire back of the sleeve at the elbow, brought up over the puff to cover
the shoulder seam,  and  tapering to a
rounded point at the edge of the scpiare
neck. This piece was trimmed all
around with a narrow accordion pleating of ribbon. A fall of lace finished
the bottom of the sleeve.
Even the tight coat sleeve need not
cause despulr, as It can have wedge-
shaped pieces Inserted, tlie seaming covered with braid or stitched folds. One
Interest'ng renovation of the plain small
leg 'o mutton sleeve was made by cutting out the upper part frnm the bottom
nf the armhole gathers on each side,
leaving sloped edges to the elbow on
each side, und cut up again at the back
of the arm in two narrow tubs. A rather full puff, gathered at armhole and elbow, of some extra material to mutch
the gown was inserted in this opening,
the edges of which were finished in double rows of stitching.
Indeed, there is no end to the way tho
ingenious girl can make over a last
year's sleeve.
Neater Than a Darn or Patch
A KENT in cloth may be mended so
that even tho closest observation
can hardly detect It if court-plaster is used instead of thread. The goods
should be laid upon a smooth, flat surface and then a pin should be firmly
stuck in perpendicularly so as to bring
the edges together, but not to interfere
with the rent, say three-quarters of an
inch away from each side. Court-plaster
which hns been well moistened and allowed to stand a second or two so as to
be sticky rather than wet, should be
applied. It should be rubbed and pressed, pressed and rubbed, until every particle of the surface has adhered. The
spot should then be pressed with a moderately hot Iron, a piece of muslin between. Finally the rent should be examined for any frayed threads, which
should be clipped carefully away if discovered.
No More "Stroking" of Gathers
TIE monotonous, nerve-trying
work of stroking gathers (or
"laying" them, as It is sometimes
called) may be entirely done away
���.'Ith by the following method: Use a
lo *g slender needle and fine thread.
Fill the needle with gathers almost aa
full as It will hold. Squeeze these
hard together, pressing toward the
eye of the needle. When well squeezed,
hold firmly ia one hand and pull with
the other. When the gathers have
passed from the needle, they will be
found as nicely laid as If done with a
If the gathering has been put tn by
machine (and none are nicer and more
even), a little gentle pulling will make
them set like hand-made gathers.
Purchasing for Another Season

"bargain hunting," and many
are the squibs that are hurled
at the heads, of the just and unjust.
For "just" bargains there are, In plenty, If women only know where to find
them and how to deal with them.
One woman whose little daughter was
always dressed* In materials that
would seem beyond her mother's
means, and yet were In no wise conspicuous for their elegance, managed
in the following sensible way: When
September came, and even ln the latter part of August, she kept an eye
on the "left-overs'* in lawns or pretty
prints. These could often be purchased
at one-half the price of earlier in tho
season, and If the quantity was a remnant, It coultl be had for a mere song.
She was always careful, of course, to
buy nothing that would look out of
place the coming summer. If a conspicuous pattern happened to be
the rage, large plaids or aggressive
spots, fur Instance, she rigorously
turned her liaeUtu*)on them, no matter
how really cheap Oiey "might -bft���*A,..
dainty flower, a little spick, a pin
stripe,   or   a   broken,   inconspicuous
plaid were always to be found, and
these she bought, religiously laying
out a certain amount toward next
summer's supply.
During the winter, having the materials at hand, the summer's sewing
was done at odd times and without
rush, a skirt one day, a ruffle aome
cvenipg while listening to father read
aloud, a pair of sleeves during some
delightful a.'ternoon spent with a
friend. The skirts and waists were
both left without bands, so that when
summer came the possible growth ot
the little daughter might be taken
Into consideration.
As she never put the child Into very
heavy dresses ln winter, depending on
thicker underwear for extra warmth,
she was enabled likewise to pick up
some "real bargains" ln woolen goods
at the end of the cold season. She
never regretted the money laid out
In advance, regarding it as a paying

For Dull Scissors
HAVE you ever been annoyed to find
that just as you" had made up
your mind to do some special
piece of work your scissors seemed suddenly to have grown dull? Thla is often
the case, and ls something that no one
can satisfactorily explain. Anyway,
the immediate remedy is very simple
and Is always at hand. Open the scissors around the neck of a small bottle
and work them vigorously for a few
seconds, say a half dozen times. The
scissors will then be found to cut Y*ry
well. The glass acts as a sharpening
stone, and while the edge given Is what
ls known as a "wire edge," and will not
hold for any large amount ot work. It
certainly ls a great convenience and will
last for two or three days sometimes.

DID you ever go to boarding
school? If you did, you know
who was, for the time being,
the most popular girl ln the
dormitories; It was she who had a
birthday���therefore a box from home.
Oh, those home goodies! A well-
fllled Jewel casket ln after life gives
not half the joy that comes to a
schoolgirl with a homely wooden box
filled to overflowing with cakes, big
and little, fudge, tarts and���bliss ot
bliss���fat,   green   pickles!
Especially if such luxuries are forbidden ��� If sweets are tabooed, if
ooxes must be smuggled and midnight spreads be held in deadly fear
of a sudden raid of a disapproving
teacher���ls that joy enhanced.
While girls are girls, and home
boxes are home boxes, the girls will
bave the boxes despite rules, and
teachers might as well make the best
of It.
There was once a very clever woman who was principal of a large
boarding school for girls. She was
known far and wide as a rigid disciplinarian. She was privileged to
write an Imposing string of degrees
after her name, but she had not forgotten her own youth.
One day her head teacher came to
her with the report that mice wero
���verrunning     the     dormitories.       The
Sirls were  in   the  habit of receiving
ampers  and   boxes   from   home,  and
all     that    remained    from    the    first
spread, that was always In order as
soon as the hamper was opened, was
stowed away ln a convenient place for
future use. Wardrobes and bureau
drawers had more than their share of
crumbs; jellle* and marmalades got
upset -*--*>.onally, and the olague of
mice was on the Increase. "iou give
the girls plepty of good, wholesome
food, Miss W���" the lady concluded,
"why not forbid anything being sent
frop_ home?"
"Most of my life has .een spent In
a boarding school, either as pupil or
teacher," said Miss W��� shaking her
head, "and I kne��� that nothing ever
takes the place of the school hamper
���tuck boxes we call then in England,
you know. I cannot forbid my girls
their supply of home goodies, neither
can I risk following In the footsteps
of the Bishop of Bingcn. I must think
of some way of meeting the difficulty."
That very day she sent for a carpenter, and In a short time a pantry
was built in the dermltories. The key
was put ln charge of the school
housekeeper, who saw that the door
was kept locked until 3 o'clock ln the
afternoon, when the dinner hour was
comfortably past. Between 3 and 9
the key was left In the lock, and tho
girls were at liberty to help themselves to their stores.
Miss W.'s Interest did not end here.
She called a little meeting of her
girls and made some suggestions
about the contents of future hamnera
and the methods of packing them.
Often provisions arrived In bad order, glare was broken, soft cakes anil
tarts were smeared over other articles, and all of this might be avoided with a little care.
She suggested that preserves and
dainties of a li..e nature would best
be sent in small jars with screw
tops. These tiny jars hold Jur.t
enough for one feast, and there is
no danger of a little being left to
"work" or mould. The same rule applied to olives, pic. les and the cream
cheeses that are dear to the heart of
every schoolgirl. In packing these
jars safety requires that each_ one
should be wrapped in several layers
of soft paper and that more soft paper should be stuffed In every possible crevice and corner, thus making it Impossible for them to be displaced.
Crackers   ought   to   go   ln   their   own
Eackages. Home-made candy Is better
oxed, and the thoughtful housemother
will save all the discarded candy boxes
in the family In anticipation of just
such occasions.
Pie is a favorite delicacy with most
school children, but big pies rarely arrive at the end of a railroad Journey ln
good condition. Instead make little pies,
or "turnovers," for the school hamper.
Wrap each one ln oiled paper and put
them on thc thin wooden plaques which
come for the purpose at a trifling cost.
If possible, pack the pies In a Hat pasteboard box. If you cannot get a box of
the proper kind, put a plentiful supply
��eeeirin.fa Box from. Home.
at tissue paper between the pie and the
other contents of the hamper, and pack
It at a safe distance from anything that
might be spoiled by dripping syrups.
All layer and soft cakes travel best in
tin. The Icing must be perfectly hard
before packing. Instead of putting it
on a plate, which is heavy and makes
extra exprcssage, ice thc cake on a flat
square of stiff pasteboard, or on a tin
sheet of exactly the right size. Wrap
the cake with oiled paper, and set It on
folded strips of heavy paper which
reach well up beyond the sides of the
box. This enables the cake to be easily
lifted out. Pack tissue paper tightly
around It to prevent moving.
Small cakes ure really better for the
school hamper than loaf cake, though,
perhaps, tliey do not keep fresh aa
long. Bake gingerbread, chocolate,
cup and sponge cakes ln small muffin
pans. Sandtarts, ginger snaps, jumbles and cookies always make acceptable contributions. Bread ts not
supposed to be particularly dear to
young appetites, but sometimes a
homesick youngster has a yearnlni.
for some special brand of home roll
or biscuit, or even for a Itnif of homemade bread. All these travel comfortably In a clean flour sack.
Fudge is beloved by young antl old,
and almost every family has its own
cherished recipe. Be sure that It Is
cooked enough and beaten so that It
Is smooth nnd not sticky.   Or, why not
add to the school hamper the necessary materials for making It? f6r the
average school boasts more than one
chafing dish among its inmates. Chocolate and suga.- are easily packed. A
tiny bottle of vanilla, well wrapped
ln paper, will travel safely In an odd
corner. Small pats of butter wrapped ln the thin pieces of cheesecloth
that are familiar to any one who has
ever poked around a dairy will remain Intact if packed ln a tin box or
one of the small Jars with a screw
top that come filled with marmalade
Or cheese.
A  veal  loaf Is sure  to arouse much.

Where there ls no prejudice against
canned goods, sardines and potted meat*
make a nice addition to the hamper's
store. Get the smallest cans possible,
however, and warn the youthful recipients ugainst leaving anything In the
can for "next time. Carelessness in
this respect is nt the root of many an
illness from "eating canned goods."
Nuts, in bags or boxes, make good
travelers. Apples, figs, dates and pear*
are to be recommended. Unless the
distance is short, avoid sending oranges
and lemons. When they are sent, wrap
each one in tissue paper.
Provide the hamper with an Inexpensive knife and spoon as well as wlttl
food. There is a charm about eating aa
