wish to express their appreciation

abscesses, it is hoped. These ab
scesses have been the cause of
much pain. The doctors gave no

advised against the operation which

store the sight of one eye.

The value of salads in the diet is
now so generally recognized that in
most homes the question is no long
er whether to have a salad or not,
but rather what kind to have. Any
salad is more attractive if It is rath
er compact Instead of being spread
out over the leaf, and if the pieces
are not cut too small.
Selected celery tops make attrac
tive garnishes, and the tender tips
are delicious in a salad. The leaves
may also be spread on a baking
sheet and dried in a warm oven
with the door open, rubbed to a fine
powder and stored in glass jars for
use In seasoning soups and gravies.
