reduce the cost of making gas sum ciently to secure a greater total profit out of selling 11 large amount of gas at a low rate than was before received when rates were higher and business lessBut It Is onlyI by the most aggres sire and intelligent business methods that u gas company can hope to suc ceed under such conditions The abil ity to handle the business In this way is something that n

impressed ms most and of which I make note I call her the secret erviqe cook for one would never think that she has en tire chage of the cooking and serving of the meals the manages so quietly and with such ease To get breakfast she wears a shirtwaist as though she were going into an office iustead of a kitchen Even in the afternoon she always dresses for the evening and protects her dress with a large gingham apron while preparing supper pils she takes off before meeting her guests TheIIcook puts everything on the table and covers the dishes with silver tops which keeps the food warm while ahe steps into the drawing ro rrt to an nounce that supper am served One of her plans which is a splendid I one and well worth trying is the using of servingtables There are four long and narrow ones in the diningroom one at each side of the main table The courses are placed on these tables and the ones seated neatest them hands what ever is wanted and no one had to get up to waiton tho table As
