Showing General Knox

One thing about the World wur:
Ultle or nothing has been said aboot
tha soldiers going hungry. Io this
department, at least, the old hard­

fully eliminated. In contrast, ona
m a lls Washington at Valley Forge.
The plight of the Continental
army became ao desperate that
Washington finally sent General
Knox and Captain Sargeant to ex­
plain their condition to congress.
It will he remembered that Gen­
eral Knox was very generously pro­
portioned and It happened that Cap­
tain Sargeant was far from wearing
tatters. One member of congress
noted this and remarked that In
spite of the tale of starvation and
rags he bad seldom noted a gentle­
man ao fat and one ao welt dressed.
" It la true," said General Knox
“for out of respect, the choice was
made of the only man who had an
extra ounce of flesh and the only
one who had a whole salt of clothes.”
Directions for playing: Four players or two
with two men each cun play this game. Use small
buttons for men. Place these on the left hand
numbers one. two. three and four. The object la
to get theae meo from the starting place at the
left aide of the play board to the corresponding
numbers on the right aide, without retracing a
step, or Jumping one. That la each man must
■tart from hla original numbered point, move up
ward and around through the white spaces only,
until he readies the same number on the other
aide of the diagram. No player can move onto
a apace with another. Two spaces must he moved
at a time. If player moves an aa to block himself
by black spacea. none of which can be Jumped, he
must go bark to the beginning and start again.
The drat man to get safely to bla flnlah wins the game. Itemember, no black spaces can be Jumped, no player
ran muve backwards, and no player can move diagonally. He must move hla men either directly forward
or directly to the aide. Every player must use white spaces only.

SIM PLE dessert well made and
daintily served gives Just the fin­
ishing touch to a plain dinner. Here
are a -few desserts that may be help­
ful I d planning a luncheon and the
dinner menus:
On baking day when the oven Is
not too well occupied, prepare and
bake a pastry shell or two, or bake
the shells on putty tins for Individual
pies. These will keep well for a few
days and It will be found most help­
ful to put In a filling of lemon, cover
with a meringue and have a dessert
In a very few mlnutea. Theae shells
may be filled with crushed fruit,
topped with whipped cream, or they
may he filled with a butterscotch All­
ing or chocolate, thus having any kind
that seems desirable or Is well liked.
