THE SAGUACHE CRESCENT I I I 7 BUSTER BEAR IS INTRODUCED ONE of the little people who were there ever will forget how Buster Bear was introduced in the Green Forest. It was the funniest introduction any of them can re- member. They laugh now when- ever they think of it, though at the time some of them didn't laugh at all. No, indeed! The truth is some of them were too frightened to see anything funny. You see, it hap- pened like this: Jimmy Skunk had met Buster Bear up by the pond of Paddy the Beaver deep in the Green Forest and he had made Buster Bear jet "I've Brought My Old Friend Bus- ter BeJr to Introduce Him," Said Jumper. out of his way. Peter Rabbit had seen him do it, and of course Peter had told every one he met. Every one had expressed a great deal of admiration for Jimmy Skunk until Peter came to Prickly Porky the Porcupifie. Prickly Porky had said that it was nothing to make Buster Bear get out of the way and that he would do the same thing if some one would invite Buster Bear to come down where he was. Jumper the Hare had offered to go invite Buster Bear and Reddy Fox had planned to prevent Jumper ever getting near Buster Bear. So Red- dy had hidden where he could jump out at Jumper and perhaps catch him. Along had come Jump- er, and just as Reddy was getting ready to spring he had heard a step behind him and had turned to look right straight in the face of Buster Bear! Now, Reddy Fox is a coward. He always has been a coward. Per-' haps he can't help it, but anyway he is a coward. When he saw who it was behd him' he gave one frightened yelp and then he put his tail between his legs and he started for home faster than ever he had run before. The minute Reddy started to run Jumper the Hare started after him. It's Clark Gable Movie stars paraded in the Venice mardi gras in effigy.

Reddy can run fast, but Jumper as you know, can run faster. So he had no trouble in keeping right at Reddy's heels. But Reddy didn't know this. He was so frightened that he didn't stop to look back, and when he heard some one just be- hind him he thought it was Buster Bear, and tried to run harder. As for Buster Bear himself, he was so tickled at the sight of Reddy Fox chased by timid Jumper the Hare that he started after them as fast as he could go so as to see what would happen next. At the foot of the tree in which sat Prickly Proky, were several of the little people of the Green Forest gossiping about Buster Bear and wondering if Jumper the Hare really would invite Buster Bear to meet them. No one excepting Prickly Porky believed he would. Prickly Porky knew Jumper better than the others because they had both come from the same Great Woods to live in the Green Forest. Suddenly there was a great racket. Every- body looked up to see what it meant. There came Reddy Fox running as if he thought his very last minute had come and right at his heels was Jumper the Hare! It looked just us if Reddy was running away from Jumper, and everybody shouted with laughter. Reddy didn't stop. Oh, my no! He kept right on. But Jumper stopped.

All the laughter stopped right then and there. You never, never did see such a frightened scampering! Uric' Billy Possum and Happy Jack Squirrel got in each other's way as they tried to climb the same tree. Striped Chipmunk tried to crawl into a hole too small for him. Bob- by Coon fell backward from an old stump on which he was sitting. On- ly Jimmy Skunk and Prickly Porky seemed unafraid. Buster Bear sat up and his little eyes twinkled and he grinned broadly as hesaid: "I'm ever so glad to meet you and I hope we'll get better acquainted when you are not in such a hurry." @ T. W.

BARBER IS ALWAYS POPULAR O MATTER how much you may enjoy a meal as a whole, there is usually one dish which furnishes the highlight and therefore, stands out in your memory. At least, I find that this is the case. It was spoon bread which one of my friends gave us for Sunday supper and which heightened our enjgyment of the baked ham, deviled eggs, the hot biscuits and the green salad which our host mixed himself with a deft hand. When I questioned Alice-from-Vir- ginia, the cook, I found, as I had suspected, that old-fashioned water- ground corn meal had done its part in producing a perfect spoon bread than which there is nothing better. Of course, as the French say about spinach, it is death to butter. Corn meal of this type is appre- ciated in some places of the North as well as it is in the South. Up in Rhode Island the wheels of an old mill are turning again to produce the princfpal ingredient of the famous griddle-baked Johnny cake for which that state is famous. The title, by the way, is a corrup- tion of the word "journey," upon many of which these cakes of corn meal furnished the only supplement to the fish from the streams and the game from the forests. Spoon Bread. 1% tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups water ground corn meal 1 cup boiling water 2 cups milk 2 eggs, beaten lightly 2 teaspoons baking powder Mix butter, sugar and salt with the meal, scald with boiling water and add milk, well beaten eggs and baking powder. Pour into buttered baking pan and cook slowly, 325 de- grees Fahrenheit, for forty-five min- utes. Johnny Cakes. 1 cup water ground corn meal Boiling water 1 tablespoon melted butter 1/4 teaspoon salt Scald corn meal with enough boil- ing water to make a drop batter. Stir in melted butter and salt. Mix until very smooth. Drop batter from spoon in dabs onto hot greased grid- dle. When brown on one side, turn over and brown on the other. Scalloped Potatoes and Eggs. 2 hard-boiled eggs 2 cups diced cooked potatoes cup minced ham 1 cups white sauce s/4 cup bread crumbs 1 tablespoon butter Slice the eggs and arrange in a baking dish in alternate layers with the diced potatoes. Sprinkle each layer with minced ham and cover with white sauce Sprinkle the top with crumbs, dot with butter and bake in a moderate oven until the crumbs are brown. Nut Wafers. 2 tablespoons butter 1 cups brown sugar 1 egg 2 tablespoons water 1/4 cup flour cups chopped nuts. Cream butter, stir in sugar, add egg and water. Add flour mixed with nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls on a baking sheet, greased with an un- salted fat or oil, at least two inches apart. Bake about seven minutes m a moderate oven, 325 degrees Fahrenheit, until brown. Remove from oven, let'stand half a minute and remove from baking sheet with spatula. If last wafers get too hard to remove easily return to the oven a minute and then remove. Tomato Preserves. 4 pounds ripe tomatoes 5 cups sugar 1 lemon Scald and peel tomatoes. Leave tomatoes whole. Add sugar and let stand overnight. Add thinly sliced lemon and cook until the mixture is clear and thick. Melba Sauce. cup currant jelly cup sugar 1 cup pulp and juice of rasp- berries tablespoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon cold water Add jelly and sugar to rasp- berries, and bring mixture to the boiling point. Mix cornstarch with cold water and stir into raspberry mixture. Stir over medium fire un- til the mixture is thick and clear. Strain and cool. O Bell Syndicate.WNU Service. FIRST AID TO THE AILING HOUSE By Roger B. Whitman CONDENSATION ON WALLS AND CEILINGS LTHOUGH the air in a house may seem dry during the heat- ing season, there are times when there will be enough moisture in it to cause condensation. The effect may not be recognized as coming from condensation, although there can be no other explanation. For an example, I was once asked to explain the continual peeling of calcimine on the ceiling of a down- stairs hall. The door to the kitchen was at one end of the hall, and it was on that part of the ceiling that the peeling was worst. The reason was obvious. The kitchen air was damp from cooking and also from the water vapor produced by the burning of gas in the range. This damp and warm air rose and passed tin in the soup instead of soup in the tin, or something like that, and ) You Must Pick Your Moment Fm Extricating the Hairpin From the Soup. you can retrieve your hairpin under a cloud of merriment. If, however, your dinner partner hasn't seen the catastrophe it's best to try to con- tinue sipping your soup as though nothing had happened. Then you can keep your eye on him until he starts gesticulating with his soup spoon to some one on the other side. That is your moment. With a swift motion you can then pull the hairpin out. And if some one catches you at it just say it's a habit with you. You always have to get the cherry out of the bottom of the glass.

The ceiling plaster being compara- tively cool, there was condensation against it, and it was this dampen- ing of the calcimine that caused peeling. One possible cure was to put a ventilator in an upper part of I one of the kitchen windows; an elec- tric fan to draw the kitchen air i outdoors. Another was to replace the calcimine on the ceiling with enamel or with waterproof paint. Condensation is a very usual rea- son for the peeling of calcimine and paint on ceilings. It is particularly likely on upstairs ceilings under an unheated attic. The ceilings are cold, moisture in the air condenses against them, and peeling follows. This moisture may come from kitch- en and laundry work, from steam from hot baths and showers, from over-use of a humidifier and other causes. , The pattern of lath, so often seen on upstairs ceilings, is one effect of condensation. Moisture picked up by the plaster, dries off quickly in the spaces between laths, but much less quickly in the plaster over a lath; dust collects and is held by the dampness, and the pattern of the lathing becomes evident.

I I Crazy Patch Work at \\; FHE crazy patch is the oldest of quilt patterns, yet there is something amazingly modern in its angular lines. So whether your living room is traditional in style or newer than tomorrow you will be interested in the revival of crazy patch work for what our grandmothers and great-grand- mothers cal}ed a"slumber throw." A corner of one of these old silk crazy quilts is shown here at the lower right. The pieces were small--many not more than 1/ inches wide or long. A variety of embroidery stitches joins the pieces. Both plain and figured silks were used, the plain patches often being embroidered with flowers, fans and other amusing motifs--note the beetle embroid- ered on one patch. Several col- ors of silk embroidery thread were generally used but in the most ar- tistic of these quilts one color pre- dominated in the embroidery. Larger patches with simple feather stitch and herring-bone stitch at the joinings also give a good effect. The pieces are sewed to a foundation of some firm soft material. Outing flannel or an old wool blanket are good. Pin a piece in place over the space to be filled, trim the edges to the right shape, as at A, allowing enough to turn under, as at B, where the patch laps over the one next to it. Baste Home Heating Hints ., Simple Way to Avoid Dust When Shaking Grates and Taking Ashes From Pit HERE is an easy way to keep dust from sifting through the cracks of the ashpit door when shaking furnace grates. Quite a few readers have asked me how it can be done, and I'm sure many more of you will be interested. Here's how: Have a spray made of small pipe, connected with the cold wa- ter system installed in the ashpit of the furnace. Only a short length of pipe will be needed. In it have small holes drilled and cap the free end. Just before shaking the grates, turn on the spray. It will throw a fine mist over the whole ashpit, wetting down the ashes as they drop through the grate openings and settling the dust immediately. Then remove the ashes from the ashpit. They will be sufficiently wet to prevent the dust from ris- ing and settling in the cellar. The cost and installation of such a spray will be but little, and it certainly will save you consider- able work in dusting off things on which the dust would otherwise settle. ...',::: .......... .'. Home in a Modern Setting the turned edges down, as shown. When a number of patches have been basted in place, sew them down to the foundation with the embroidery stitches and then re- move the bastings. The backing is tied to the front with silk em- broidery thread as comforters are tied. Little or no padding may be used and a plain band around the edge is effective.
