Homes of Famous Americans

SOME twelve or fourteen miles from Louisville is the home of General Zachary Taylor, the great hero of the Mexican War and the twelfth president of the Republic.

How My Backyard Flock Paid

TO the many readers who may have a desire that they would like to keep poultry as a side line I should like to submit in this article a record taken from my annual poultry account, beginning February 28, 1922, to February 28, 1923.

The Perfect Jelly

JELLY just naturally fits into a meal and nothing else can quite take its place. Lamb with mint or currant jelly and pork with apple jelly are every bit as practical as gloves with suits and hats in church.
