A preserving kettle ; of the finest porcelain is the if best, but if you have nothing but an earthenware pipkin, it cause. But Ihese later versions, my cook-book reading memory holds good, sometimes stray from the version Mrs. Worth- incton reprinted. Here it is: HOW TO COOK A HUSBAND (1898 version) By A Baltimore Lady "A great many husbands are spoiled by mismanagement. Some women go about it as if their husbands were bladders, and blow them up; others keep them constantly in hot water; others let them freeze, bv their will do, with care. "See that the linen, in which you wrap him, is nicely washed and mended, with the required amount of buttons and strings, nicely sewed on. "Tie him in the kettle with a strong cord called Comfort, as the one called Duty is apt to be weak.

A!l parishioners are asked to continue to use the coupons for the Preferred Purchase Plan throughout the summer months. The new chairman for the PPP is Mrs. Dalton Hernandez. Attendance awards for this meeting went to: Sister Mary Marcelene, third place, Sister Mary Camillus, second place and Mrs. John Patin, first place. Should women guests at a wedding always wear a hat or a veil to the ceremony? The answer is yes, with very few exceptions. Only in Congregational, Unitarian and Mormon services is no head covering required. In churches of other demoni- naiions, a head covering is either required or usually worn through custom. So widespread is this practice that even when the ceremony is held at the bride's home, women guests recognize the religious aspect by covering their heads.
