Ben Lear's "yea- more severely than are BY EUNICE LARKIN I had a request not long ago for a good boiled dressing. I sent the recipe out to the reader, but this morning I thought that maybe there were others who would like the same. This is salad time, you know, and a good home-made boiled dress- ing is a favorite with many. Somemix a good commercial may- onnaise half and half with the homemade dressing. It just de- pends on what you and your family likes. About this time last year I gave a number of recipes for fruit and nut breads. They are so nice for picnics, and plenty good to have for thin sandwiches, spread with butter or a lit- tle cream cheese, in the middle of the afternoon when the pitcher of iced tea makes the rounds. So today I am including some of the same recipes from a year ago, for they cannot be improved on, and I know I have many new readers since that time.

ME TOOl They fell the story of Mussolini playing bridge with his foreign Minister, Count Gleazzo Ciano, against His Majesty the King and Dine Grandi, Italian Ambassador to England. Grandi opened the bidding with four hearts. Ciano bid five spades. The King looked at his hand carefully, chuckled and bid seven no trumps. Mussolini glared at the other three players and thundered: "And I, Benito Mussolini, I bid one club." Grandi said, "1 pass." Ciano said, "1 pass." And the King? Well, he looked at his hand wistfully, shrugged his shoulders and in a resigned voice, said, "Me too." PRACTICAL MAID "Mary," said the mistress, "the window of your room is so dirty that one cannot see out of it." "Yes. ma'am," replied the maid, "but I el- ways open the window when I want to see out." HEARING THINGS! Two men in a boiler factory worked side b' side for over an hour, neither man saying a wore. At length one turned to the other. "Did you say something?" he queried. The other placed his hand behind his ear and asked, "Did you say something?" The first man cupped his hands around his mouth and shouted: "1 said, did you say some- thing?" The second also cupped his hands around his mouth. "Yeah," he nodded. "1 said, did you say something?" The first man shrugged. "Not me," he said. "You must be hearing things!" ONE IS ENOUGH?

"This suit," he chortled, "is all wool and a yard wide, guaranteed not to rip rattle or run down at 'd-he  heel. It's ben selling at $20. It's worth $30. I got it on special today at $25. I sell it to you for :SIS." My friend snapped at such a bargain. The next day he came in, wearing the suit. He had worn it in the rain the night before, and the suit stopped too soon both ways from the middle, as welt as being anything left of it except wht looked rain-soaked gunnysack. He started in he little merchant, calling him from to Izzard, all the names he could g bad, worse or indifferent. The little Jew patiently for about I0 minutes, until my friend r=n out of vocabulary and atmosphere, he merchant smiled his most genial smile, "Sure, sure. but outside of all them things me, aon't ,,ou think I'm still a
