!W!I^ So much of our outlook on life depends upon the mood we are in. What looks like un unsurmount- i'ble problem at bedtime can turn into a mere pesky question after n good night's sleep. If we are coming down with a cold, the most thrilling development can be robbed of its glamour and if \vi- get unpleasant news when we ure tired out, it can really throw us lor a loop. Women, especially are subject IM moods. It is part of our legacy I'IMITI Mother Eve that we art' i "lOtion.'il and changeable in ou iM. position. A husband does well tu remember this when he b I'iy.urinjt out what makes his wife tick and if h' v •(•••n rei'ie'iibi"- (/ spring the right thing at the right time he is truly a master in matrimonial" H-latiiii'is. Men. 01 the other hand, are more even tempered. They ur? ornery all of the time. Let us consider for a moment some of the changes in opinions we gals have between the times we are feeling down iti the dumps and when everything is in the pink. For examples, when we hit one of the frequent weather changes we have in these parts. When we are feeling o.k., we arb apt to say, "That's what makes this climate so interesting—the abrupt changes When we are low be, "This darn One day it's day it's zero. in weather." , it's more apt to Iowa weather! summer, the next No wonder wo get -•o many colds!" * * * If the husband is a fisherman and lie brings home a nice string •>f t'L-ih when the little woman is in a good mood, he will be greeted with cries of joy at how much the finny creature will do to pep up the family menus. If Hie wife cooks the fish while she is in n lower mimd. vl )( > i s verv nut *• think, "$10.00 for the gasoline, $20 In Minneapolis Hotel you'll be glad you did In the very center of the city- near depots, [theaters, wholesale district and all shopping.

Long, Mgr. •r--* * 4th Street at Hennepin ** *" MINNEAPOLIS N Minnesota „ for 1hp cabins, $7 for the $13 for the refreshments. At this rate, the fish dinner is costing us $6.fiO per pound!" • • * Wh*n Mama is in a jittery mood, & this is true at our house at least, the kids can make some noise while playing and the maternal parent will screech with exasperation right along with them. When Mama is in a more mellow mood, she reflects, "It':normal and healthy for the kid. 1 to be full of pep. When they start being too quiet, that's when I will worry." • * * Houses ate sure to gel messy when a growing family is living in them. Most of the lime, we homemakers can lake this in our stride. We consider "that comfortable, lived-in look" quite normal and desirable. Bui there comes a time, when that old bugaboo insomnia has us in it? grip until the wee hours, or a day When nothing seems to go right and that "comfortable lived-in look" appears to us as a falling down messy hovel with no one t< -;et it to rights but Mama. • . » • Even the dog at our hous ctiiufs in for her share of punish merit when I am looking on tin- darker side of lite. Then Wienii drives me almost to distraction when she bucks at the mailman 01 commits an act of incontinence 01. the floor of her back porch sleep ing room. I have never laid a hand on her, but I certainly fee' like beating her then. Am when the good, cheerful spirit: return, 1 admit that Wienie i; the only, dog I have ever liked he's a good and loyal pet, an I'd bo .simply devastcd. if any-thing would happen to take he 1 iway from us. • » « When we go to the cupboarc' to take out a jar of peanut butter, the pessimistic view is that tin jar is half-empty. The optimis' says the jar is half-full. When an optimist eats breakfast, sin sees a nice tat doughnut; the pessimist sees only the hole. In fact a pessimist can be defined as om- who feels bad when lie feels good lor fear he'll feel Worse when lit feels better. • * * Whn a gal is in an optimsiic mood, she appreciates a nice, steady husband who .stays home, nights: when she is feeling more pessimistic, she wonders if her old man is only a stick-in-the- mud. If Papa is the life-of-the- party and Mama is feeling pretty cheerful herself, she admires the fact that he is an extrovert and has a wonderful way with people If she's feeling more on the sourpuss side, she claims her old man is a show-off. If the husband dimes up with an unexpected gift, ui- a little unusual show of affection, the wife if she is in i sweet-disposition phase, appreciates it as a token of devotion. 11 she's feeling mean and nasty, she wonders what he lias clone now ;Mid what shortcoming he is trying to amend.

PREMISES OPEN FOR INSPECTION Earl Shipler, M. B. Pringle & Harlan Gaard, Auctioneers Wm. Boyken, Clerk (47-48') the only thln$ be sure about is that whatever the wife's mood is, it is suf-e to change. The whole thing is governed by Ihe phases in the moon, by the joints in the lower sftcrilinc, and by the peptic juices in the feminine digestive tf-act. Husbands aren't supposed to understand it. They are just supposed to vope with it. * * * Tonight I am in a real mean mood. Usually I look forward to Thursday nights when I write the column and although it's hard work I get a lot of satisfaction out of it. I'm nut mad at Father for any particular reason, except that he is lying peacefully snoring in bed behind me and that's exactly what I'd like to be doing instead of tapping things out on the typewriter. And if there is any thing that frustrates a woman, it'f to be feeling oul-oNsorts and have nobody to listen while she talks it out. * * * One local grade schooler has OPCM quite frustrated by what hf considered high-handed attitude? m UK- part of his big sister. Th( sister had a birthday coining uj. and his parents a.vktd the boy A'hat gill he was going to givi IHT. Alter some thought, the young man said, "I'm going tc ouy hoi a pair of earrings. And i'm going to get the heaviest ones I can buy. Maybe they will .ell 10 her down a iiitle." * » » I am learning quite a bit my second time through school it i s un ly by proxy as I help our Kids with their home woik. The .Multiplication table is gettin. .nure nrinly lixed in my mind a.> .vlary Ann and i are piogressmt through fifth grade anu the Cons titution of the United Stales ii Betting lots more attention from me than it did before 1 had Bill to help me through 8th grade. But the first time i was in 2nd ^rude 1 must have neglected one aspect of my education, 'for 1 iieVer really learned to moo like a jow very convincingly. * » Jeanie's class had a Thanks giving program, and her sulo part was to miw like the "gentle cow on the way to Grandpa's farm" in the song. Jeanie's moo was rather thin and quavery and she worried about it. So we practiced. We mooed after supper while we were doing the dishes, we mooed while we •were getting ready for school in the morning and we mooed when she came home for lunch. We learned to make the sound from way down deep in our dia- phrams so it would eoipe out nice and round. I am happy to report that in the school program, Jean'ie was the best mooer they had—and the only one. And it I am properly coaxed, I can moo pretty good, myself. * * » 1 was quite flattered recently when a couple of readers phoned me and asked my opinion on cooking problems. " To be perfectly honest 1 had to admit that nowadays I do.rnbre writing and-talking about cooking- than I do the actual .stewing and baking.. Bu*. uven if the meals at our house lately tend to the ordinary, I still am interested in receiving 'recipe'." and in passing them on to you' It's almost Christmas cookie thru, so 1 thought you might like this recipe for Mincemeat Cookies which came to me from Mrs R.
