I ..•.... •Th6, "Praise and Properties of it' ; Good: Wife", found in the last ehaptgrvdf, the, book of ProtfefbS in the Bible was Written for the Women of Solomon's time, but the ideals back of the list of qualifications still apfily .thousands of years later-twine women of 1955. The philosophy is (appropriate after all'these years, but the Way the model woman of today carries out the virtues is quite different. And so are the materials with which she works, ' :•'.-.•; .*',-* » , ' The Bible says,'' "Who can find a virtuous woman?, Jfor her price is far above rubies. The heart 6f her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her lifei 'She seeketh wool, and flax and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; She bririgeth her food from afar." "She riseth also while it is yet _ night and giveth meat to her household, and a> portion to her maidens. She considereth a field and buyeth it;, with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard -j-She layeth her hands to the spindle and her hands hofld- the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea she reach- eth forth her hands to the needy." . "She is "not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scar• let. She maketh hersef cover- she is out with the girls* she thinks twice before she indulges in idle gossip. She lets kindness color all her versions of a story ' She looks after her family; she isn't lazy. She knows that homemaking consists of far more than housekeeping. She works foi and with the schools in getting a good education for her children and she sees to it that they have the best possible preparation for life—a strong religious faith. Her children point her out proudly and say, "That's my Mom!" and her husband always says nice things about her. When they come to their golden Wedding anniversary, he says, "What! Has it been fifty years already?" * * ' * And wiih the ancient philoso sher of Solomon's time, we, clear down the centuries into 1955 can say, "Favour is deceitful, and beauty vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." It is a far cry from reading the Bible to a discussion of the use of profanity among the small- fry, but we mothers know we all have to contend with the problem once in awhile. A local mother was surprised the other day to have her little ijon come in and say, "Mama, is jackass a naughty word?" . The mother • replied, "That's all in the way you mean it and say it, dear." The little boy was very thoughtful for a time. Then he went into the bath- " 1 understand she was hired as an emergency stenographer to stand by during' coffee-break time!" ings of tapestry; her clothing is sill? and purple.—She openeth her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the law Of kindness." "She looketh well to, the ways of her household,, and eateth no.t the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husba.nd also, and he praiseth her. — Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a wp- man that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates." o f » An exemplary,female is just as hard to find today as it was' back in the Old Testament. And though I fully realize that neither the eternal truths nor the majestic language of the Bible can be improved upon, if we were injer- preting this chapter for today's wornan, I wonder if it might not go somewhat like this: » • * Never underestimate the powei of a good womap. She is worth her weight in Uranium. Her husband trusts her; he knows she meant it when she promised to forsake all others and love, honor and obey only him. His interests are paramount in her life 'and she will never knowingly do anything to hurt him. She tends to the duties of her home for she knows that the clothing and feeding of her family are strictly her department. She goes down to the super-market to buy food for the family and she selects delicacies, in season, from all over the world—at the most economical prices. , She is the first one to got up in the morning and she cooks a good, nourishing breakfast for her loved ones. Her human servants arc non-existant but she has a myriad of appliances to make her housework easier. She rents a vacant lot and plants herself a garden so that she can put veg. in the deep-freeze for next winter. She does the mending, selects and makes the clothfs for the family and from her hands come the gentle soothing and the fleeting caress associated with wives and mothers. Her way of "stretching forth her hands to the needy" i:. to push doorbells for the Red Cross, the heart, cancer, polio and other funds and to figure out a way to give from her budget to the church, the community chest and other worthwhile projects. She knows that millions of little gifts combined are lots more effective in helping misery than merely trying to play Lady Bountiful. « • « She is not afraid of the coming of winter for she has let down the last year's snow suits, knitted mittens for the youngsters, bought new storm boots and has them ready for the first .--now fall. She also has a little cash put yside to;the more figurative "stormy day." All her family are attrac-t- ively dressed in the best clothin she can secure in keeping with the family income. She keeps up her own looks with cosmetics and well-styled clothing & she makes the best of what beauty she has been endowed with by nature-. She exercises to keep from gelt ing fat and sloppy and when her hair gets straggly she gives her- Display at 116 So. Dodge, Algona self a home permanent.

"I guess I've been swe'aring again!" * * « v Insurance men are notoriously diligent when it cbmes to seek- ng customers. One local insurance man that I know is also notoriously successful in placing bets'that the odds always go his way. In fact, if this guy bet that the sun would come up in the west some morning, I think Old Sol would probably oblige for one day only. However there was one day this ummer when he- lost a bet A group of Algona businessmen were on a fishing expedition and this insurance man bet that he could reach Bancroft before the gas tank, which registered, mpty, really gave up the ghost. About, three miles out the engine spluttered, coughed and died and our bettor conceded that he'd lost and started to town for more 'uel. The rest of the party wait?d in the car and he didn't come jack and didn't come back. Finally when they had just about decided to walk into Bancroft and find him, back came our salesr man. He and a can of gas, the money to pay off the bet and a check for a paid up insurance policy he'd sold while at the filling station! * * * In last week's recipe contest one of the winners was Mrs Edna Teeter with a Shrimp Spaghetti with a mushroom sauce.; Because it was a double-header the sauce recipe was crowded out, so I'm jiving it now. ] <2 cup melted butter "2 cup flour '2 cup cream '•• tsp. salt ] ,'i tsp. paprika 1 tablsp. chopped parsley 1 tiiblsp. lemon juice 1 Ib. cooked mushrooms.
