When food is cooked in small quantities, the mixing, the application of heat, can be controlled with much more exactness. An omelet, for example, made of three eggs will turn out more tender and fluffy than one made of many eggs. A similar situation occurs in roasting coffee. When roasted in bulk it is impossible to control the heat eji-nctly. Some of the batch, therefore, is overdone and some underdone. As a result there is a variation in flavor. In the invention of Controlled Roasting, Hills Bros, found the way to insure an even roast in their fine blend of coffee. Only a few pounds at a time are roasted by this patented, continuous process. When the roasting: is finished a uniform!' delicious flavor has been developei such as no other coffee has. When you buy Hills Bros. Coffee it is always fresh because it is packed in vacuum. By this process, air, which destroys the flavor of coffee, is taken from the can and kept out. Ordinary cans, even if air-tight, do not keep coffee fresh. . Grocers everywhere sell Hills Bros. Coffee. Ask for it by name and Jook'for the Arab on the can. / Hills Bros. Coffee, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota. 01931 UPHOLSTERY FABRICS That wilt make the old furniture look like new.

Children May Conquer Fears Thru Examples Offered by Playmates By ALICE JUDSON PEALE A three-year-old had developed an intense fear of dogs because of the large dog who lived next door and who barked and jumped at her whenever she passed. It was impassible to impress upon her. that he was only being friendly. Her mother stroked" the dog 'In her presence- to show her how entirely gentle he was, but it did not help. The child refused to play out of doors if the dog was to be seen or heard. But what her mother did not accomplish over a period of weeks, a visiting cousin of the child's own age was able to do in a few days. The little cousin was not in the least afraid of the dog but ran straight to it to pet and play with it. The little girl watched from the shelter of the porch. Gradually her courage grew. Before the end of her cousin's visit, she had lost all fear of the next door dog and of other dogs as well. Children seem to be very well aware that a good many situations which cannot hurt the big adult who stands so firmly on his feet carry possibilities of danger for them. When the example of an adult is not sufficient to help the child overcome his fear, it frequently helps to expose him to the example of a child who is not afraid. When he sees that the thing of which he is afraid does not hurt somebody of his own size, his fear frequently disappears. Unfortunately, the device works both ways. A child who is not afraid may be_,mnde afraid by a child who is. In using this method it is well to remember that the fearless child P. T. A.
