~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
THE GOOD COOK'S GUIDE:
How To Pick & Preserve A Husband
Be careful in your Selection. Do not choose too young.
When selected give your entire thoughts to Preparation for domestic use.
Some wives insist upon keeping them in a pickle, others are constantly getting them into hot water. This may make them sour, hard, and sometimes bitter.
Poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good, by garnishing them liberally with patience, sweetening with love and seasoning well with kisses.
Wrap them in a mantle of charity. Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream.
Thus prepared, they will keep for years.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Some men have tact. . . . Said the bride-groom who didn't wish to either offend his bride or die of internal disturbance: "My dear, this bread looks delicious, but it is the first you have ever made. I cannot think of eating it, but will preserve it to show to our children in after years as a sample of their mother's skill and deftness." - The Modoc Independent, Alturas, Calif., Jan 15, 1885.
