ST. PATRICK'S PARTY j -There
are many who plan to en
tertain at some holiday time be
cause of the opportunities afford
ed for table decoration and color
arrangement. St. Patrick's day
offers ap. opportunity to gve the
happy 'springtime tone that is
needed to cheer one over the dis
mal days of March rains and
winds toward the sunny j balmy
days that are drawing near. Green
plant, shamrocks, i 'green crepe
paper trimmings, etc., against a
back-ground of white certainly as
sure? us that "spring is not far
" -If small -tables are to be used,
as for a card party or tea, have
two different arrangements for
decoration and then alternate the
tables. For one effect, f use jf!:.a
green and white checked gingham
table cloth, with paper napkins,
or gingham napkins" to match the
cloth. 1 Inexpensive glass j candle
holders may be purcnased at the
ten-cent stores and if place at
each corner of the I table with
green candles inserted therein will
start you on your, decorative way.
An inexpensive but attractive cen
terpiece, that was used at a
church social not long ago, was
a child's toy wagon painted green
and filled with Irish potatoes.
The alternating tables could be
covered "with small white cloths

and scattered j here and there,
leaves of real j shamrock ' or cut
outs of bristol board or crepe
paper. The center-piece might be
a plant of real shamrocks. If care
fully arranged lone could use for
a centerpiece as many of the tiny
pots of shamrocks as there are
guests. Tie to each a green rib
bon and have the ribbons radiate
to each plate, f ;' There is found
a tiny metal pig tied . to the end
of the ribbon, or possibly a paper
potato basket f filled with green
candies. Afterwards, each , guset
may draw his little plant of sham
rocks from the center. ? ;
, If a card party is planned, or
any party -where partners :. must
be chosen, arrange sufficient slips
of paper containing-such combina
tions as "cornbeef and cabbage,"
"ham and eggs," , "bread and
milk," "Ice cream and cake," etc.
Then clip these in halves and dis
tribute to thej guests. Let them
match up their halves as someone
reads the correct combinations.

. There is no doubt that the fash
ion of cooking in . casseroles has
come to stay in this country; and
it is hardly a matter of surprise
when the advantages of this form
of cookery are considered," The
sooner the casserole: utensil be
comes an indispensable part of oar
kitchen outfit, - the better for it
makes In every way for "economy
Jeconomy of materials, time and
labor. .. : ' J "'; '
These area - fey of the advan
tages of cooking in a casserole:
First The flavor of the' food
cooked is brought out when It is
prepared in a casserole. .
Second When vegetables- are
cooked in a casserole--and nearly
all vegetables are ? wonderfully
better when cooked by this method
a small amount of water. t in
many cases seasoned stock, should
be used. . '

casseroles. ' " - ' , : -
Fourth, The cooking in casse-"
role dishes Is slow but thorough,
and all the nutritions elements in
the " "viands are preserved. The
cover must fit snugly to each uten4
sll to prevent too rapid escaping
of the aromas and flavors.: Some
times a strip of cloth, spread with
a soft paste of flour and water
or mashed potatoes, is pressed
over the joining of the casserole
and th cover, end the heat of
the oven finishes the sealing of
the dish. .When the dish is ready
to serve, the trlp of cloth, and
paste is, removed. - ,
i Fifth Because of the fact that
the food is cooked slowly and
evenly, lees fuel Is used and once
the materials have been started
cooking, they require little atten
tion. Sixth ' The cleanliness and
wholesoineness of a casserole
make it especially valuable in
preparing food for the invalid and
the convalescent, r
Seventh- Another advantage of
casserole cooking, especially in a
family where for some reason or
another, meals are irregular, is
that the dish can be kept waiting
for a considerable time without
losing its heat and without deteri
oration. Food can be left In a
casserole with perfect." safety as!

'.'A week of spring weather has
found reflection in a moderate
increase in jobbing and retail
trade and some expansion in build
ing operations and in buying of
construction materials, . Taken as
a whole, however,; spring buying
is hardly better than fair, and
caution still characterizes pur
chases. While "mail order and
chain store sales showed good ex
pansion in February, department
store trade as reported by the fed
eral reserve bank, shows a smaller
movement In that1 month than a
year ago, thus repeating the report
as to-' January trade. ' -In Febru
ary, as in '' June, ' trade "seems to
have been best in the northwest
and in the south west,? this latter.

crop growth. This week's report
indicates the need of rain in Iowa
