rpHIS crisp vegetable is not only
pleusinp to the taste, but is also
an excellent tonic, and it may bo
truly called the scavenRer of the
body. Spinach is exceedingly rich
in valuable mineral salts, contain
ing several times as much iron as
any other known vegetable, so for
this reason it should be served fre
quently during the winter months.
Every cell in the body contains iron.
It is one of the most important con
titituents of the blood stream. When
the supply of this valuable mineral
salt is decreased in the body anemia
is the result. This is paiticularly
apt to occur in growing children..
Green vegetables arc valuable to
the body owing to the fact that they
contain an indigestible cellulose
which acts as roughage. Many of
us who dislike spinach do so because j
or tne manner in which it is served.
How often have you had spinach ,
served in a sea of dark-looking '
liquid, with the stringy, pale-colored I
green stems attached "to the leaves!
looking for all tho world like a piece ,
of seaweed? Oh, I see that you
recognize the style. Now lot mc tell j
you of some very attractive ways
of serving this vegetable.

to wash with. This is necessary to
free these crinkly little leaves from j
the sand und grit. Now rinse in
plenty of cold water to crisp it.
Shake the spinach dry and place in
a deep saucepan and cover and then I
steam gently until tender. Do not '
add any water. In this manner the
spinach is virtually cooked ,n its own
juices., Now tuin into a chopped

"Many girls seem to think," lie
wrote, "that marriage and a career are
Inconsistent. I dlsngrco with this
view. I think most girls should
marry, I think these same girls
should, after their marriage, keep
right on developing their talents. I
think they should take an active In
terest In outsldo nffalrs. They should
bo companions to their husbands, not
merely housekeepers. Tho girls of
other countt lea may not bo able to do
this, but American girls can, Amerl-
i can girls are, If anything, moro com

American men are no slouches. Thcro
ought to be a. lot of happy marriages
between the two when the boys got

After all, there Is nothing moro dur

sort of love in tho world Is that which
comes from perfected friendship.
IT IS truo our girls fall far short ot
the French as housekeepers; that
they do not make the Ideal fireside
doting sort of wife; that is to say, they
havo opinions of their own, ono of
them being, man is not particularly
a superior being to be cont'nually
served. Hut when it comes to that

American wife is the ideal wifo of the
Tho young lleutcnunt who wrote the
letter, part of which Is quoted above,
said: "There ought to be a lot of happy
marriages when tho boys get back."
And thcie should be. Tho war work
experiences our girls havo gone
through havo schooled them even
further In this business of being tho
companion-wife. Thousands who have
never been In the working world be
fore have sensed tho trials, tho battles
and the joys of wresting a living with
their minds nnd their hands. When
their boys come home they can weave
Into romances a new understanding
