H ow Often Should Your
Furniture Be Polished?
Housewives differ on the ques­
tion of “ when to polish their furni­
ture.” Some have no set time for
it—polishing when they think of it
—or when, casting a glance about,
they decide that the furniture can
“ stand it.” Others, polish every
cleaning day—which ordinarily
occurs once a week. Others dedi­
cate but one day a year to this
important procedure. And still
others, polish the furniture in
their home regularly, once a
month. This last group is the
largest—but their schedule- is not
sufficiently frequent. Furniture
can not be polished too often!
True, the outward benefit of the
best oil polish—the luster—will
last through a single week—and
more—but this same polish, with
its light oil base, preserves and
“ feeds” the furnitureC/revives it,
prolongs its life! So that every
application is highly beneficial to
woodwork and the various pieces
of fine wood in the hpme. Our
advice, therefore, for the sake of
endurance, as well as appear­
ance, of your furniture, is “ polish
up” with a good oil polish at least
twice a month!
More women use O-Cedar
Polish and Mops than
any other kind-
fot furniture,
and floors.
Joy or Grief
Contentment furnishes constant
joy. Much covetousness, constant
grief.^ To the contented even pov­
erty is joy. To the discontented,
even wealth is a vexation.
For Chest Colds
Distressing cold in chest or throat,
never safe to neglect, generally eases
up when soothing, warming Mus-
terole is applied.
Better than a mustard plaster,
Musterole gets action because it’s
NOT just a salve. It’s a “ counter*
irritant”—stimulating, penetrating,
and helpful in drawing out local con­
gestion and pain.

has traveled over great continents and braved unknown
dangers. His quest fo r food has changed the m ap o f the
w orld and colored the history o f nations. But in all of these
historic struggles, he has been m otivated solely by the desire
to get enough food to satisfy hunger.
Today, actual hunger is rare. But hundreds of thousands of
people starve in the midst of plenty because they do not realize the
tremendous power of food for good or for evil.
They do not realize that as a m an eats, so he is, and that

Food—the Fuel of Life.
The body machine cannot be
run efficiently without proper food
fuel any more than a car could
be run without gas, or a house
could be heated without oil, coal
or wood.
Food also has the power to speed up
or slow down the workings o f the mind.
It likewise influences the state o f our
nerves, the warmth of our affections, the
type o f characters we possess.
Finally, the power to have
strong, healthy children is based
on proper food. And nutritional
scientists have discovered that
the wrong food can even take
away from us the greatest bless­
ing that Nature has bestowed—
our earthly immortality. For it
can deprive us of the ability to
bear children who will carry on
after we are gone.
Six Groups of Food Substances.
What food substances are neces­
sary to build and maintain top
health—to develop the greatest
physical and mental power?
1. PROTEINS which build
and repair body tissues. These
are found in such foods as
milk, eggs, meats, fish, cheese
and nuts.
2. FATS which yield heat
and energy. The fats are rep­
resented by butter, cream, oils
and the fat of meats.
starches and sugars. These
also supply heat and energy,
and are found chiefly in such
foods as bread, potatoes, cere­
als and sweets.
4. MINERALS which build,
repair, protect and regulate.
Among the minerals which are
absolutely necessary to health
and vigor are calcium, phos­
phorus, iron, copper, iodine,
sulphur, manganese, magne­
sium, sodium and potassium.
These are found in varying
amounts in milk, eggs, fruits,
vegetables, whole grain cere­
als and meats.
5. VITAMINS which are nec­
essary for body regulation, and
as a protection against dread
deficiency diseases. Six have
There are many striking ex­
amples of the power of food to
make or mar existence. I could
cite hundreds of laboratory ex­
periments, many of which have
been confirmed by clinical ex­
Nor is this power of food to af­
fect mental activity confined to
prenatal life. Even if a child en­
ters this world with a strong body
and a clear mind—the wrong food
during childhood has the power
to wreck health.
Investigation after investiga­
throughout the country, has prov­
en that a surprising percentage of
retarded children—those who can­
not keep up with thfeir school
grades—do not really have infe­
rior minds. They only seem stu­
pid because the action of their
minds is clogged and slowed down
by sluggish, under-fed bodies.

Physical fitness is a far greater asset
than material possessions. For in times
o f stress and trouble, those who can
stand up under the physical strain win
the battle. For those who collapse, all

The Homemaker’ s Responsibility.

responsibility of keeping her fam­

Her husband must have the right
kind of food in order to earn a
living. Her own diet must be
adequate and well-balanced if
she is to have the energy, wis­
dom, and patience required of a
mother at all hours of the day.
