the stonemason who retrieved the
silver dollar Walter Johnson pitched

"I need the money,” he said.
"But some of my friends tell me
this dollar is going to be worth
a whole lot more than the $100 I

Last year, when the Day School
closed, and our vaction began, a
wonderful experience came into the
lives of our Crossnore Kiddies.
Time after time, we received let
ters saying, "Send us one of your
little boys or girls ( and sometimes
they said two.) "We will love them
and take care of them and send
them back to you in time for
school." The writers of these let
ters were offering to dormitory
children the great experience of be
ing loved, of being in a home,
"sorter” like they belonged there.
Isn’t that the birth-right of every
American child? and yet so many
of our children must miss it, unless
you give it to them. Don’t you
want to try it for one vacation?
Those who did wrote us that they
enjoyed it as much as the children
did. A letter just received from a
big hearted farmer says, "Tell
Lefty I want him to stay with me
next vtcation.” Lefty went for
just a little while last summer, and
. he will never forget the jojy of it.
[ Just think how his heart will jump
when I tell him he is wanted for
the whole vacation!
And some folks said, "I need
somebody that can help me with
little things. A middle size girl who
would mind the baby, or play with
my little folks while I am at work,
or help wash dishes and tidy up the
home.” Or, "I need a likely boy
who can bring in stove wood or
feed the chickens, and bring in
eggs, or go on errands, and pull
weeds.” "I’ll help with the clothes,
if I can get such a one.”

glad, for our big boys and girl:

Meet the Brush Family . . .
Toothbrush, Hairbrush, Clothes
brush and scrub brush. Time was
when those four were the sole
members of a very noble family.
But now what have you? Well, you
may not have all of these but
here’s a list of what the well
equipped household carries in the
brush line. Besides the aforemen
tioned, there’s a brush for nails,
for complexion, and for all-round
bath use—long handles, short han
dles, with stiff or soft as down
bristles, depending upon the use.
There’s a powder brush for milady
and a firm little complexion brush
with rounded bristles that fits into
the palm of her hand and coaxes
out a day’s grime like nobody’s bus
iness. And there’s a he-man com
plexion brush for the gentleman of
the house, to discourage poaching.
Clothes can be valeted beyond
description with a curved brush
whose firm bristles seek out way
ward hairs behind shoulders, and
a soft bristled brush that picks up
the nap on dusty felt hats. The
old scrub brush worked hard for
its living keeping the house in
order. Now it is joined by numer
ous long-haired floor-brushes, wall
radiator and three-sectioned Vene
dan blind brushes. Upholstery is
tept well-groomed with a specially
instructed brush whose bristles

:revices. And there’s a whole clan
>f cleaning brushes, many of stiff
fibre bristles whose sole purpose

The best hair brushes are made
of boar’s bristles. Need I stress
low important it is to buy only
:he best if you expect long and
aseful service. For some reason
or other the Siberian boar has the
-eputation for producing the fin
:st bristles. Untouched by com
nunal influence, he has spent years
:hasing over the Siberian steppes de
veloping an independent bristle as
veil as an independent mind. Try
pinching a genuine boar’s bristle
md you find it won’t snap off or
lose its resiliency like the bristle
of an inferior„brush. Bleached, or
- ■, jjt-- --— —
au naturel, the real boar’s bristle
has years of life in it.
Do you brush your hair one hun
dred strokes a day? No, I thought
not. You can’t get beyond fifty
two? That’s a good average. But
you’ll find the operation much more
enjoyable with no fear of discour
againg a beautiful wave if you use
one of the new brushes designed
for curly heads. It has deep, pen
etrating bristles, cerrated on top
to fit into the lines of your wave.
It lifts rather than flattens the
wave, and aereates as it lifts. Bend
forward from the waist, please, as
you brush, to encourage circulation
to the roots of your hair.
Go into the canning factories if
you would discover1 economy in
food preparation carried to the last
degree of perfection. Take the
case of pine-apple. Those thick
slices constitute only one portion
of the pineapple’s assets. The brok
en slices at either end are diced
and canned. Tid-bits come from
the inner shell lining. Then juice
is extracted from the shell, ends
and core are boiled down for syrup.
The residue is converted into a
fine bran mash for stock feeding.
A woman with five growing
daughters told me how she solved
the manicure problem. Each daugh
ter demands her own set of lotions
for nail softening and cuticle re
moval. That runs into money
when multiplied by five. So each
week a bottle of nail softner is pre
pared and placed in a stoppered
bottle for general use. Here’s the
recipe: four tablespoons of pure
soap flakes dissolved in one and
one-half cups of hot water, a
fourth cupful of salad oil added,
shake well and use the emulsion as
Have you wondered how crisp,
crunchy corn bread sticks are
made? This recipe comes from a
restaurant famous for its corn
sticks. Sift together one and one
fourth cups of flour, three tea
spoons of baking powder, one tea
spaon of salt. Stir in one cup
of yellow cornmeal and one table
spoon of sugar. Add one egg beat
en with three-fourths cupful of
milk and stir in one-fourth cup of
melted shortening. Pour into
oiled bread-stick pans and bake in
a moderate oven at 375 degrees F.,
about 25 minutes.
