A bourgeolca la a small sheet iron 
stove, writes Kleanor Franklin Kgan In 
the Saturday Evening Post.   »r It may 
be only a 5-gallon gasoline can with

In the communistic habitation* of 
the ruined and homeless bourgeoisie It 
takes the place of both heating ar- 
rangements ami the kitchen range. 
Nearly everybody makes his own bour- 
geolca out of whatever materials he 
may be able to come by. and in social 
circles it provides a topic of conversa- 
tion of never-ending interest. Their 
habits and the various methods em* 
ployed to regulate them are matters of 
primary Importance. 

Its name, bestowed upon it In iron- 
ical derision, denotes Its relationship 
to the general scheme of things. It 
burns nothing but tiny bits of wood 
and Is therefore very economical, but 
when it is first set going it smokes 
considerably, with the result that prac- 
tically every bourgeois home In Itussia 
—such as It Is — smells as though its 
flues were badly out of order. 

It la capable of bringing the average 
winter temperature in a fair-sized 
room up to zero. «tr maybe to 10 de- 
grees above, and this is as much com- 
fort as the bourgeoisie are expected to 
require. This sounds like an exag- 
geration, but it is not. It would be Im- 
possible to exaggerate any phase ot 
the tragedy that has befallen Kussla.

By Keeping Breedsrs Apart From Rest 
of Flock The/ Car Be Handled 


It Is often desirable to keep the pal- 
lets and the eMef hens separate. It 
may be that the lack oan ST WtB want 
to use more of the tested hens for 
breeders, and by keeping them apart 
from the rest of the flock they can be 
handled a little differently, says the 
United States Department of Agricul- 
ture. The yearling hens, or sometimes 
older ones, and the well developed pul- 
lets are better for the breeding flock 
because the larger eggs produced will 
bring out larger and stronger chlcka 
Some poultry raisers think that the 
older hens are better than even well- 
grown pullets that are laying full-slxed 
eggs. They say that ttie germ cell In 
the egg from the older bird Is stronger, 
r. egga from the best pullets

rn le 1',-ter had spoken of t'nele 
Samta's lavlshoesa in far countrlea. 
BBth voi.-ed It when she wanted to 
know if It would be of any use for 
them to expect anything that fhrist- 
maa. whether or n-H they were to hang 
up their stockings. "You'll put your 
foot in It if yea do." aald Geavya "No, 
she w.-n't.' taid Uncle I'eter; "I have 
had a special delivery letter from 
t'n.-Ie Samta, saying that he has had 
his eye on this house for the Inst 
twelveniouth, and thut.this will be one 
of his stopping plwrns because from It 
so much of service for others has been 
P'litig out. He saya that you are his 
Kardeners. and thai you have planted 
ra tunny BBedal at kindness ihat a lot 
of aaa Itlflll things will he sure to 
come up. That is always the way. he 
aaya; in fact, it is the way in which 
he got rich himself." 

Tlds was a very pleasant assurance 
for the children. K made them think 
of a happy mistake that one of them 
had made when they were having war 
gardens all over the town: A certain 
Mr. Rose had been appointed by the 
mayor as Inspector of gardens for the 
whole place, and one dny Betty point- 
ed him out to a friend with whom she 
was walking. "There goes Mr. Hose," 
■he said; "he's an expecter of gar- 
dens P 

When the children had been re- 
minded of Mr. BOM they also remem- 
bered what Betty hnd done at their 
last Christmas party ; stalking heavily 
and pompously down the room, she 
had said: "I'm Mr. Atlas, who holds 
up the world." So one of them stood 
on tiptoe, threw back her head and 
threw out her arms and said: "I'm 
Uncle Samta Claus. who holds up the 
world." "Well done!" cried Undo 
I'eter; "that's Just It!" 

There wasn't any disappointment In 
the house the next morning. "Did you 
get all that you wanted?" asked 
Uncle Peter. "Yes." said Mary. 
"Were you at all disappointed?" 
"No," said Mary. When Mary said 
"Goodness." her mother said. "Yon 
shouldn't say 'goodness.' Mary." "Cra- 
cIousV said Mary. But Mnry was too 
excited to have a ."are for her ex- 
pressions. In describing the situation 
afterwards she said: "I was In a per- 
fect stupor of excitement." 

Uncle i .pr had a present, too. 
After all the rest hud been made 
happy Agnes brought out a parcel, 
and wh.-n Pad* I'eter opened It there 
were too big books that told over 
again the story of all that America 
had stood for and ail OHlpHshed This 
made him very glad indeed. Hnd he 
asked them to write his name on the 
fly leaf and to any that it was from 
his Teang Americans. Then the 
fTtrlsttiiMs party ended with a verse 
of our national anthem, heartily sung 
and Toi: m% d by all the other verses, 
with a hurrah for Uncle Sam Instead 
of an amen.

there have been New Year parties. 
The old Kotnnns gave theirs in boner 
of Janus, the two-faced god. One 
face looked back at the old, spent 
year, and one face looked forward to 
the new. fresh year. They gave pres- 
enta to htm and to each other with 
the hope that the new year would he 
good to them. Some of the people who 
lived long ago waited until the end of 
March to celebrate the New Year, 
since that was the time that the trace

Tha Stork's Mistake. 

"Oh. mother." said a little girl ex- 
citedly, "there's a uew baby over at 
Mrs. Brown's; but don't you think the 
Stork meant It for Miss Jones, who 
boards there? 'Cause Mrs Brown 
four children already and Miss Jones 
aasn't got a single 

Kit at the Busy Bee. 



Christmas comes but once a year, but 
let us try to keep the friendly spirit of Christ- 
mas thru every day of the coming year. 

This Department Store extends the 
cordial greetings of the season to all the people 
of this community.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Santa Claus, reindeer, tinkling sleigltbells, snow, 
dolls and toys for the children; Christmas Savings checks for the older 
ones — Merry Christmas indeed! All the world seems so happy; time of 
peace and good will towards all men; misery and hardships have no right- 
ful place in such a scene — yet . . . Why is it men continue to squander 
when with a little or no effort they could save so Christmas for them 
would be a season of rejoicing? If they would only

"Easy come, easy go" they try to 
selves. All is well so long as the sun of prosperity 
shines, but where are they when the clouds gather 
and the rainy days set in? "How grand it would be 
if — IF — I had only saved instead of wasted" you 
hear Mr. Easyspender remark. 

Realizing this condition we organized our Chi-; 
mas Savings Club under the Goodman pl^in. With 
this system it is easy — very easy — to start and easy 
to keep up the weekly payments. Out of the 
"change" formerly squandered, the deposits are 
made — so gradually it is not missed, and at the next 
Christmas a plump check is ready. Interest helps 
to increase the amount of the deposits, and, more 
than anything else, the habit of systematic saving 
is formed. 


The man who wishes he had 
is always envinous of the man 
who acts when the impulse to 
save comes to him. Once the 
habit of saving is formed it 
grows and grows. Our club 
is now forming, offering you 
the opportunity to become a 
saver instead of a spender.
