As many of the sisters ask mo for
various fillings for layer cakes, I will
send a few that I have found very sat
isfactory. Many good cako recipes
have already beon published, any one
ot which, If baked in layers, will do for
these fllllngSi .
Lemon" dream Filling Grated rind

blespoon flour,, small piece of butter
and a vey small pinch of salt. Beat
two eggs light and mix the flour into
a batter; pour Into the beaten eggs.
As soon as the rest of the ingredients
have come to a boil, set on the back
part of the stove and stir into it very
quickly; stir vigorously the eggs and
continue to stir until the mixture
comes to a boil nnd thickens to the
consistency of jelly. Spread on the
cakes when partially cool.

One Girl's Way of Managing a Lover.

Of course, he promptly jumped In

If; on tile olltel' lituitr, to give the
girl the benefit of a doubt, she did
not do it from the purely selfish de
sire to gain her poliu, but becnuse he
was so obstinate, there was no other
way to make him yield, then it would
have been better for her to break the
engagement than to resort to any
such methods. If she has any spirit
whatever, marriage with a man as
obstinate as this would indicate noth
ing but misery for her. She can't be
jumping into rivers forever. It would
get monotonous. Besides it would
lose its force. Tlym, too ho might
not always jump in after her, and it
would be exceedingly humiliating to
have to rescue one's self.- But look
ing at It seriously, any woman with
a spak of self-respect must despise
herself for having to resort to this,
or similar methods to obtain that
which' is rightfully hers. A marriage
in which such methods are necessary
can" never be happy.
If such serious disagreements arise
in courtship days tlinlt such high
handed measures are necessary to
win one or the other over, the two
had' better tako reason by the hand,
and walk a little way with her before
they proceed to the marrying altar.
Saying a few words at tho church
chancel, and marching down the aisle
to the tune of the wedding march are
not going to change human nature.
If love, which means the utmost con
sideration for each other, is not the
basis of marriage, then trouble Is
ahead for both. For no condition in
life opens , the door quite so wide to
tho bitterest misery as an unhappy
marriage. And it is more honorable
for either party to break tho engage
ment than to go forward to a mar
riage in which tho one and only rea
son for it is absent love.

Readers and admirers of Mrs. Brown
will remeber that if there was one
dish more than another that "Brown"
was "partial to" It was a "weal and
'am pie." Nor is Brown alone in thin.
His predilection for the said pastry
dainty is shared by many Englishmen
of hearty appetites.
Here Is the rule for making it. A
pound and a half of filet of veal cut
into squares, a quarter pound of lean
ham also In small pieces, with a ta
blespoonful or thereabouts of butter.
Cover with water in a deep pie dish
and stew well. When it is tender add
two hard-boiled eggs cut in slices, a
small quantity of minced parsley nnd
n suspicion of thyme. Cover the dish
with thin pastry and bake.
