THE SAGHACHE CRESCENT SAMMY JAY PUTS ON HIS THINKING CAP AMMY JAY had a great deal to think about and so he went off by himself to a certain thick hemlock tree in the Green Forest where he could be quite alone. Now, when- ever Sammy Jay goes by himself that way to put on his thinking cap you may make up your mind that mischief of some kind is brewing in that small head of his. Just now Sammy was thinking about what he had overheard Buster Bear say to Jumper the Hare, and he was won- dering how he could get something out of it for himself. You know, Sammy is one of those people who try to profit by the troubles of other people. He is never so hap- V To Be Sure, Busy's Big Cousin, Bumble, Has a Little Storehouse in the Ground. py as when he can find some one in trouble, because he is almost sure to find some way to get something for himself out of it. One time Sammy happened along when Chatterer the Rod Squirrel and Happy Jack the Gray Squirrel were quarreling about some very fat choice acorns. Each claimed them as his. Sammy just urged them to fight for them, and this is what they did. While they were fighting Sammy carried away all the acorns, and when finally they agreed to stop fighting and divide the acorns they found none to di- vide. Sammy had hidden every one where only he could find them. That was dishonest, very dishonest, but, you know, Sammy has always been a thief. He thought it was smart. You and I know better, but he didn't, and there are a lot of people in this world just like him. Now, Sammy knew very well that Buster Bear was the strongest and biggest of all the people who lived in the Green Forest, and when he had first seen Buster Sammy had been very much afraid of him. Now he wasn't afraid, because he knew that his wings would keep him out of reach of Buster's cruel claws, but he had a great deal of respect for Buster just the same and he wanted to do something that would Giant X-Ray Tube ,.-::f:. .-. . .!.-::: ::.*.

When he overheard Buster ask Jumper the Hare to try to find out for him where he could get some honey Sammy smiled. He knew that the only way Jumper could find out was by ask- ing questions of those who lived in trees, for it is in hollow trees that Busy Bee stores up honey. To be sure, Busy's big cousin, Bumble, who makes such a fuss about every- thing he does, has a little storehouse in the ground, and possibly Jumper might find this. But if he did it wouldn't be a taste for Buster. What he wanted was the storehouse of Busy Bee. "Now if I can find it for him," thought Sammy, "he'll always be my friend. I think I'll have a look at all the hollow trees I know of in the Green Forest." Just then another thought popped into Sammy's head. He and Reddy Fox were not the best of friends. In some ways they were very much alike, and perhaps this was the rea- son that they were forever falling out. Sammy had been one of the first and loudest to jeer at and make fun of Reddy the time he seemed to be running away from Jumper the Hare. Then he had seen Reddy run from Buster Bear only that very morning, when Buster had sud.

"If I can think of some plan which will make Reddy think he can make friends with Buster Bear, why Red- dy will forget all about his anger with me," thought Sammy. "I have it! I'll tell him how Buster wants some honey and set him to hunting for the storehouse of Busy Bee." With that off flew Sammy Jay to hunt for Reddy Fox and tell him how he could make friends with Buster Bear. O T. W. Burgens.--WNU Service. ALL CITRUS FRUITS YIELD VITAMINS \\; Here You Have C in Large Content, Also A, B, G. By EDITH M. BARBER OST of us resent being told that we must eat certain foods be- cause "they are good for us." When, however, we find this phrase used to describe fruits which we like as much as oranges and grape- fruit, we feel differently about the question. Even before the discovery that vitamins existed, the consumption of these fruits had been steadily rising for years with the improved qual- ity of packing and transportation facilities. Oranges which have been known as edible fruits for centuries received an earlier distribution than the grapefruit. Mrs. Potter Palmer of Chicago is credited with having introduced this fruit from Florida into northern markets. At this time, somewhere around forty years ago, it was fashionable to pretend to like the small, bitter fruit which were luxuries. It was necessary to sugar it hours before eating and was, of course, quite different from the heavy, sweet fruit of today. We now find grapefruit on the market throughout most of the year, although it is at its best in the late fall and winter. Recently I en- joyed some of the first pink Texas grapefruit which were sent to me directly from that state. The sea- son for oranges never ends. While citrus fruits are particularly valued for their large vitamin C content, they supply as well lib- eral amounts of vitamins A, B and G, as well as "some calcium and phosphorus besides the natural su- gar. The citrus fruit habit should" be cultivated. Broiled Grapefruit. Cut grapefruit in half crosswise, remove center core and loosen sec- tions. Place in a pan and sprinkle each half with two tablespoons of brown sugar and dot with half a ta- blespoon of butter. Broil fifteen minutes under a very low flame. Orange Marmalade. 1 orange 1 grapefruit 1 lembn Cut the fruit into fine strips, re- moving the seeds. Measure, add three times the amount in water and allow to stand for twenty-four hours. Boil until the skins are ten- der. Measure, add an equal amount of sugar and boil until it responds to jelly test (two drops will hang side by side from spoon which has been dipped in boiling mixture). Pour into jars and seal. Orange and Pineapple Jam. 4 cups citrous and pineapple mix- ture 7 cups sugar cup bottled fruit pectin Add grated rinds and juice of two oranges and two lemons to crushed pineapple. Measure fruit mixture into large kettle. Add sugar, mix and bring to a full rolling boil, stir- ring constantly. Boil hard one min- ute. Remove from fire and stir in pectin. Stir for just five minutes to cool slightly. Pour quickly. Cover hot jam with a film of hot paraffin; when jam is cold, cover with one- eighth inch of hot paraffin. Roll glass to spread paraffin on sides. $ SOME FAVORITES Deluxe Marmalade. 2 cups cubed pineapple, fresh or canned 5 cups quartered peaches 6 cups sugar 1 cups sliced Brazil nuts 1 four-ounce jar maraschino cher- ries and juice. Mix pineapple and peaches with sugar .and let stand fifteen minutes. Crack a peach stone and add to Irttit mixture. Heat the fruit and sugar slowly to the boiling point and cook gently until thick and clear. Add Brazil nttts and cherries which have been cut in quarters and cher- ry juice. Cook one minute, pour into clean, hot jars and seal. Sweet Potatoes With Pineapple. 5 or 6 sweet potatoes 1 cup crushed pineapple and juice 1/4 cup butter Salt, pepper Boil sweet potatoes until tender. Pare and mash well. Add pineapple and butter and beat until fluffy. Season to taste and serve at once. Cranberry Pudding. 1 cups pastry flour 2 teaspoons baking powder teaspoon salt 1/4 cup sugar 2 cups cranberries 1 egg cup milk 3 tablespoons butter Sift together the flour, baking pow- der, salt and sugar. Then add the cranberries which have been washed. Beat the egg and add to the milk, then add this slowly to the dry ingredients. Add the melt- ed butter and mix well. Pour into individual molds, which have been buttered, and place in the oven in a pan with about 1 inches of boil- ing water. Cover and let steam at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. nell Syndicate. WNU Service. FIRST AID TO THE AILING HOUSE By Roger B. Whitman HOT WATER HEAT N A hot water heating system there is a circulation of hot wa- ter through radiators in the different rooms. Water is heated in the cel- lar in a boiler that is the same as the boiler of a steam heating sys- tem. When heated, water becomes lighter in weight, and will float on colder water. In a heating system, heated water can rise through pipes attached to the top of a boiler, and flow upward to the radiators. Cold water that is ahead of it in the radiators and piping, will sink be- cause of its greater weight, and return to the bottom of the boiler. The heating of water in the boiler thus starts a circulation throughout the entire system, the heated wa- ter rising to the radiators and, when cooled, returning to the boiler to be again heated. When a hot water system is prop- erly designed and installed, all radi- ators begin to heat at the same time, so that heating is uniform throughout the house. There is a tendency for the upward flow of hot water to be much stronger in long vertical pipes than in short ones, and for this reason, unless something is done about it, top floor radiators will heat more quickly than radiators on lower floors that are nearer to the boiler. To make the flow equal to all radintors, the pipes to the higher radiators must be choked, so that there will be greater resistance. Sometimes this is done by using smaller pipes. An- other method is to use washers at the valves of the high radiators; washers with holes in them like doughnuts, the holes being of the right sizes to cut down the flow. A common complaint with hot wa- ter heat is the quicker heating of the high radiators, the reason be- ing that the greater flow has not been checked. The remedy is to apply a washer with a hole of the right size to the radiators that heat most quickly. A hot water heating system can be greatly improved by the use of a pump in the return pipe to the boil- er, driven by a small electric mo- tor. This pump drives water through the boiler and to the radiators with much more force than it has with heating alone. Distant radiators then heat quickly, and the entire system shows a great improvement. A pump of this type can be attached to any heating system. With a pump, pipes leading to the radiators can be small, which re- duces the cost of installation. In modern systems, copper tubing of only one-half inch diameter gives excellent results, By Roger B. Whitman WNU Service.

If your moving shelter decides to turn the wrong corner, just tap him on the arm and say, "Pardon me, but do you mind dropping me off at the drug store?" He'll probably be pleased to oblige.

ARNER PLANTATION, TEX.--Thanks to wise legis- lation, the wild fowl are coming back to this gulf country. True, the flocks may never again be what they were; yet, with con- tinued conservation, there'll again be gunning for one and all. But when I think back on the ducks I saw down here 10 years ago--in countless hosts--I'm reminded of what Charley Russell, the cowboy artist, said to the lady tourist who asked him whether the old-tim- e r s exaggerated when they described the size of the van- ished buffalo herds. "Wellum," said Charley, "I didn't get up to this Men- lrvin S. Cobb tana country until after the buffaloes started thinning out. But I remember once I was night-herding when the fall drift got between me and camp and I sat by and watched 'em pass. Not having anything else to do, I started count- ing 'em. Including calves, I count- ed up to 3,009,625,294, and right then was when I got dmcouraged and quit. Because I happened to look over the ridge and here came the main drove." Becoming a Head Man. ET an unshorn dandruff fancier claim he's divine and, if nobody else agrees with his diagnosis, the police will jug him as a common nuisance and the jail warden will forcibly trim his whiskers for him or anyhow have them searched. But if enough folks, who've tried all the old religions and are looking for a new one, decide he is the genuine article, then pretty soon we have a multitude testifying  the omnipo- tence of their idol. Let another man think he is a reincarnation of Julius Caesar or Alexander the Great, and if few or none feel the same way about it he's headed for the insane asylum. But if a majority, which is a large body of persons entirely surrounded by delusions, agrees with him that he is what he says he is he becomes a dictator and rules over the land un- til common sense is restored, if at all. Let the writer of a daily column begin to think his judgments are perfect and his" utterances are in- fallible--but, hold on, what's the use of getting personal? a Grandma' Togs. E LAUGH at our grandmoth- ers who believed that, for a lady to be properly dressed, she should have a little something on anyway. Maybe those mid-Victorian ladies sort of overdid the thing--bustles that made them look like half-sis- ters to the dromedary, skirts so tight they hobbled like refugees from a chain gang, corsets laced in until breathing was almost a lost art, boned collars so high they seemed to be peeping over an alley fence. Still, wearing five or six starched petticoats, the little wom- an was safe from Jack the Pincher unless he borrowed some steamfit- ter's pliers, o And later when, for a season, blessed simplicity ruled the styles, her figure expressed the queenly grace that comes from long, chaste lines. Probably the dears never fig- ured it out. Just the natural cun- ning of their sex told them 'twas the flowing robes which gave majes- ty and dignity to kings on the throne and judges on the bench and prel- ates at the altarand shapely wom- en-folk. How old-fashioned those times seem today when every dancing floor is a strip-tease exhibit and ev- ery bathing beach a nudist show; and a debutante, posing for snap- shots, feels she's cheating her pub- lic unless she proves both knees still are there. Reading Dickens. 'VE been reading Dickens again. This means again and again. I take "Pickwick Papers" once a year just as some folks take hay fever. Only I enjoy my attack. Dickens may have done carica- tures, but he had human models to go by. He drew grotesques, but his grotesques had less highly-col- ored duplicates in real life. And readers recognized them and treas- ured them as symbols of authentic types. The list is almost endless-- Sam Weller, Sairy Gamp, Daniel Quilp, Uriah Heep, Mrs. Nickelby, Mr. Micawber, Mr. Pecksniff--oh, a dozen more. What writer since Dickens has been able to perpetuate one-tenth so many characters? There is Tark- ington with his Penrod and his Alice Adams; there was Mark Twain with his Huck Finn and Colonel Mulberry Sellers. There lately has been Sin- clair Lewis with two picturesque creations, to wit: Babbitt--and Sin- clair Lewis. IRVIN S. COBB Ccyrlght.--WNU Service.
