to the small fry no matter what season comes
’round. All mother has to provide are the neces
sary ingredients—soapsuds, a few drops of glycer
ine, some gum arabic to make the bubbles more

ice bucket guaranteed to keep 60 cubes frozen

be kept fresh and sanitary by washing frequently
with a sponge and warm soapsuds. . t j j
