Putnam's Homemaker Series

By Olive Green Each, 16mo, cloth, net, $1.00

I. What to Have for Breakfast

" One might conscientiously use a number of enthusiastic adjectives about Olive Green's Guide to the Cheerful Life. It is a small book, but any one who looks it over can find a hundred reasons for owning it, and, failing to publish it, the Board of Home Missions lost an opportunity," - Life, N. Y.

"One of the sanest brochures on the food question yet published." - N. Y. Evening Mail.

" Whoever follows its laws will bring peace to her household and kindly fame to herself. It is the best book in all the world with which to start the fresh day, and an intelligent application of its rules may set in motion the very springs of heroism, joy, and achievement." - Chicago Tribune.

II. Everyday Luncheons

"Here are 365 menus, one for every day in the year, besides a variety of recipes that have a toothsome aspect in print and have not been found wanting in practice, as we are assured. There are some introductory words on ' Luncheons, Wise and Foolish,' which contain sound philosophy with a coating of humor."

Pittsburg Gazette.

"Covers the whole subject in a complete and comprehensive fashion." - Albany Argus.

'A helpful companion for any woman seeking to vary her menus. The recipes are economical, in many cases new, and in all cases practical.

The Congregationalist.

"It is well worth the attention of every careful housewife." - Boston Times.

What One Can Do with a Chafing-Dish

By H. L. Sawtelle. New revised and enlarged edition, 16mo ..... $1.00

"Messrs. Putnam have just issued a revised and enlarged edition of a charming book entitled ' What One Can Do with a Chafing-Dish.'

Miss Sawtelle's book should be in possession of every owner of a chafing-dish in this or any other country. The recipes are excellent, and while they are dainty enough to suit the most fastidious, they are also plain and practical." - Thomas J. Murray, in "Twentieth Century Cookery."

Good Living

A Practical Cookery Book for Town and Country. By Sara Van Buren Brugiere. Fifth edition. Octavo......$1.75

This book contains over 1300 recipes drawn from highest authorities and many countries. All the plainer dishes, which every family requires, and which are generally slighted because they are plain and simple, have received careful study ; roasting, bread- and butter-making, etc., having had great attention. Besides these, there is an endless variety of entries or side-dishes to suit the palate of the gourmet, all simple and easy to make, giving a large scope for the housekeeper to furnish a varied table with a comparatively limited variety of material. Another aim, almost if not quite equal, is economy, every recipe given being within the reach of any family of moderate, even modest means, in either city or country.
