ent camping, for the menand boys feel that they should help make things easy forthe women. This noble idea never comes to them whenwe swelter and suffer in a hot kitchen, and serve a nicemeal in a cool dining-room. We never found the pine boughs so very uncomfortableafter the first two nights. Each individual padded out thehollows which may have troubled, and, growing accustomedto doing without springs soon we felt our beds grow easy.We allowed two comforters to each bed or where eachtwo slept, one to lie on and one for cover. Those whoelected to be more particular brought sheets. Our oneluxury was a pillow for each. You see we were reallydoing things in a primitive way. Even our rainy days were very happy. We could notdo much in the way of cooking and serving, although morethan you would think. One would hold an umbrella overthe cook while she jumped around, creating no end of fun.We always took this precaution ; we kept all crackers in AN ATTRACTIVE VEGETABLE DISHBy Mary H. Northend

Stuffed Turnips: Boil and scoop out the centers of a sufficient num-ber of round white turnips. Fill the cup with boiled cauliflower.Garnish the dish with red pepper cut into slices and little sprays ofparsley. Serve with white sauce. one of the tents, and we had a box, which, covered withsome of the oilcloth left from covering the table, was nearlywaterproof. In this box we kept boxes of crackers alreadyopened, and the bread and other food. One thing of utmost importance is the emergency box.In this should be a box of zinc-ointment for bad sunburnsand cold-cream for the milder cases. Two or three rollseach of surgeons plaster and bandages, and, of course, theusual remedies found in every well-regulated family, andother articles, safeguarded us here as we were elsewhere. Plenty of rope, strings,safety pins, hammer andnails of different sizes arevery needful, also theaxe and saw. An extrafly over the ridgepolewould be much more com-fortable.
