Quot so that s that Quot commented brother Bert looking with considerable admiration at his pretty sister perched on the railing of the veranda. Quot now i suppose pop will have to Shell out for the Quot pop Quot smiled soberly and said he was perfectly willing to do ills part if Roberta was quite sure that she had chosen the Man who would make her Happy. Mrs. James uttered a dozen Little half sentences. Quot Well i never Quot Quot so it s Jack Kellog and All along i d thought Quot Quot if it s going to be a fall wedding i supposed Quot every one seemed perfectly Satis fled and quite merry Over the situation All except Little Cousin Sally sitting in a great armed porch chair gazing off dreamily at the Rose tinged Western sky. Quot i Don t think you re a bit interested Quot Roberta pouted to her Cousin. Quot and i was going to ask you to be maid of Quot interested Quot exclaimed Sally almost in a whisper so Low that Only Roberta heard. Quot i was just so thrilled i could t say anything. To think that you Are really engaged. Of it is so romantic so wonderful i almost feel As if it were i. I never knew any one very Well who was engaged. Don t you feel All queer and As if you were floating on the Clouds Quot Sally s Large dark eyes beamed with misty happiness and As she spoke she interrupted herself with soft Little giggles. Quot you funny Little romantic baby Quot said Roberta. Quot of course i Don t feel a bit different. I be been nearly engaged before. This is just the same thing Only this time there s the wedding and everything to Quot but to be in love really and truly in love Quot breathed Sally. Quot you re positively mid victorian Quot Roberta assured her. Quot girls now a Days Don t feel about love the Way they did when grandmother was a but As the Days passed Sally who made her Home with the Jameses continued to be Quot mid vector inn Quot if taking a romantic interest in the engagement of her Cousin Roberta indicated such a state of in ind. When she saw Jack Kellog come into the Garden or on the veranda where she and her Cousin were sitting she would always hurry away fabricating some excuse about muffins to make or a letter to write. While mrs. James and Roberta made lists of the guests who would have to be asked to the wedding and discussed relative merits of caterers and dressmakers Sally thought Only of the great and wonderful happiness that Roberta must be experiencing just to be engaged. She made Little bouquets of wild Flowers to leave on her Cousin s Bureau before she was going out with Jack and timidly Lent her volumes of poetry with slips of paper marking the most romantic love passages. If Roberta seemed of these sentimental acts on the part of her Twenty year old Cousin. Sally put it Down to the preoccupation of being in love. Roberta s birthday was approaching and while various members of the turn by were choosing for their gifts such useful things As tablecloths and Kitchen utensils Sally had plans quite different. She was putting herself in Roberta s place and had decided to give her what she herself would most value if she and not Roberta were engaged to Jack icel log. To this end she went to the Home of mrs. Kellog Jack s Mother. Quot i m getting together a Little album for Roberta Quot she said. Quot i know she will prize it More than anything else i could get her. I be pressed Flowers from the bouquets that tack has sent Era took them when Roberta was t looking. When Jack did t know it i took some snapshots of him. They came out beautifully. I found a dance order for a dance that Quot Roberta and Jack went to just before they were engaged with Jack s name Down for half the dances. Roberta had thrown it away but i fished it out of the rubbish. Now what i want to get is some photographs of film when he was Young. I la have them reproduced and put them in the books with any other Little keeps Nice that you could mrs. Kellog listened attentively and As Sally finished her explanation the elder woman s eyes filled with tears. She brushed them away smiling. Quot i could t help it Sally dear Quot she said. Quot it seems so wonderful to think of someone Loving Jack As much As Roberta must. I be always treasured All such Little keepsakes of my boy and i am so glad that the girl he is going to marry takes the same interest in him. Of course Roberta does t know you Are getting up this Book does she Quot of course Roberta did to assured Sally and it would come As a wonderful Surprise. Out of her treasure Box mrs. Kellog brought a dozen or so pictures. One showed Jack is a , round faced baby. Another was a snapshot of Jack at eight a funny Little boy with a tooth or so missing from his smiling visage. After some hesitation mrs. Kellog parted with a lock of Jack s baby hair. Two or three Little coloured sketches made by Jack in kindergarten. There were other keepsakes that no one would have treasured but Jack s Mother and the woman who loved him Best. Sally s face beamed with happiness and gratitude. Then As she wii about to go mrs. Kellog stopped her. Quot you May take these things Quot she said Quot and you May put them in your Little Book and give them to Roberta on conditions that if their engagement should be broken i could have All these things Back again. You Promise Quot Sally s pretty smiles vanished. Quot you Don t think Quot she queried Quot that Jack would of mrs. Kellog i d never thought that anything like that could mrs. Kellog might have made some explanation had it not been for Jack s Entrance into the room at that moment. Blushing Sally hid her treasures under the cover of a Magazine lying on a stand beside her. Quot what s up Quot asked Jack sinking into the shelter of a Low armchair beside his Mother. Quot you look a guilty As a couple of thieves. And Sally you deliberately tucked something in that Magazine to hide it As i opened the door and now you Are blushing to show me that there s a mystery in the Quot you la know All about it some Day Quot laughed Sally. Quot ask Roberta on her Quot i m not at All sure i. Shall see Roberta on her birthday Quot said Jack now looking knowingly at his Mother. Quot the fact is that Roberta in t quite so much interested in me now As she was a few weeks ago. You see Quot Quot Jack Quot warned his Mother Quot Are you sure you ought to talk about it now you and Roberta will doubtless come to an understanding. You Are still engaged Quot Quot not in the least Quot corrected Jack looking up quite innocently first at his Mother and then at Sally. Sally Laid a hand quickly upon the Magazine that hid her Little treasures and then in spite of an Effort at self control the tears came into her eyes and she covered them with her other hand to hide her confusion. Quot How dreadful for Roberta Quot she said. Jack Kellog was not Long in explaining that Roberta herself was responsible for the situation although he agreed with her that their engagement had hardly been a Success. Sally listened in amazement and then rising to go she placed the Little packet of treasures in mrs. Kellog s hands. Quot ill take them Back Quot said Jack s Mother tenderly. Quot but perhaps some Day you will want them again. It seems somehow As if you ought to have Sally went sorrowfully Home. The air Castle she had been building around Roberta and tack had fallen to the ground like a House of cards. Then she began to wonder what mrs. Kellog had meant about the keepsakes. In her room she looked Long and tenderly at the snapshots she had slyly taken of Jack Kellog. One Day a few weeks later after Roberta had announced her engagement to an old flame Frank Demming a Jack Kellog called on Sally. Quot Mother told me about your asking for the keepsakes Quot he told her. Quot i know that you were interested in them Only because of Roberta. Roberta would t have Given a snap of her Finger for that Little Book of yours even if we had stayed engaged. But you thought she would. And i be been thinking about you nil the time. I be been finding out that it was you Sally and not Roberta that i have wanted All Quot i m afraid you think i m dreadfully romantic Quot said Sally. Quot Roberta always says i Quot of course you laughed Jack Quot that s what makes you so so Sally had a Chance to finish the Book of keepsakes for herself.

A by Inez Searles Willson yla. 191 4, Western newspaper Union braising braising is in economical and palatable Way of cooking some of the tougher cuts of meat and it is a method not As frequently employed in the Home As it should be. The less expensive cuts of the animal Are Richer in nutritive value than the More costly steaks and chops and the question of cooking them to Render them tender and to develop the flavor is one to which the Good Cook knows the answer.

It is then placed on top of the vegetables in a pan with a tight fitting lid. The seasoning is added and also a pint of hot water or better of soup Stock. The cooking May now be finished in any one of several ways. It May be continued on top of the stove although strictly speaking in braising heat should be applied from All sides. For cooking on top of the stove the dutch oven that Iron pot with a lid is the Ideal utensil to use. Every family of any size should Hii i n dutch oven. They Era Handy for so Many things.

Classification of textile fabrics the value of fibres for textile purposes depends upon them possessing properties which make it possible to spin them into yarn or thread. Wool has a Short Staple length of fiber but it is covered with tiny Scales which lock together in the process of spinning making a very Strong yarn. There Are certain fibres found in nature such As the Quot silk Quot from the milk Weed pod which do not possess this property and so Tiey Are useless to the textile Industry under the present methods of manufacture. Silk has a very Long fiber so Long in fact that it is not spun but reeled instead. The waste silk Only is spun and is used for making cheaper grades of silk materials. Silk is the strongest textile fiber and for this reason it is used in Many scientific experiments Anil during the War it was used for Cartridge cloth. Waste silk conies from the outside of the cocoon and from pierced cocoons those from which the Moth is allowed to break its Way out. For reeled silk it is necessary to destroy the Chrysalis before the Moth is ready to come out. The cocoons intended for reproduction Are allowed to reach full maturity. has a Long fiber and while Trio preliminary processes necessary to get it into condition to spin Are difficult. It can lie made into Strong to inti. Incidentally the difficulties attendant upon preparation for spinning Are one of the reasons for the High Cost of Linen. There Are certain artificial fibres which play n More or less important part in the Industrial world. Asbestos a Pun Glass and artificial silk Are under this head. Asbestos is important because it is a fireproof material and so is used extensively for theater curtains and As covering for Pines. Spun Glass is used for ornaments. Just at present there is a Vogue for Glass bracelets. It is also used in the Industrial arts.
