How to Cook What
Cellophane makes a good dust proof cover for jelly glasses. After the paraffin is set, cut a square of cellophane big enough to fit over the top with ahout a half inch extra. Wet the cellophane, stretch it across the top of the glass and tie it down tight with thread or string. When it dries, the cellophane makes a cover that's tight as a drumhead.
I always found that kerosene was pretty good for keeping porcelain white.
Easiest way to keep a range clean is to wash it with soapy water. After it dries, rub the top with a rag that has a little kerosene on it.
Burners for a gasoline or gas stove should be boiled every now and then in salsoda and water.
Some folks have copper wash boilers and some don't. For them that don't, a little soap rubbed on the inside of the boiler while it is still warm will keep it from rusting.

Dear Mothers of America:
When it comes to bringing up little folks I do believe I've had as good experience as any Mother could have. With nine children and 25 grandchildren of my own, and there are one or two things I've learned that I want to pass on to you.
Maybe more important than anything else is to watch what you feed the youngsters. If you start them out as infants with the best kind of food you'll be proud to watch them grow up right. First of all, their food should rest light on the stomach, and then it should be good and nourishing and it should build them up big and strong. Maybe that sounds like a problem, but it isn't--I found that all those things are wrapped up in Horlick's, a fine safe infant food.
Little folks have delicate stomachs that behave right when fed Horlick's. and the food itself has so much good in it that it builds up sturdy bodies, good bones and nice strong teeth. And mothers find it so easy to prepare.
If you follow my advice, you'll feed your babies and your children Horlick's, and they'll grow up to thank you for the rest of their natural born days.
