trip by automobile many times to
pick up the German wounded she had
sighted.
When you speak of these exploits
1 to her she dismisses them with a
shrug that seems to blend impatience
and contempt. " --
"What else would you have had
me do?" she asked when I saw her at
her hotel "I offered to my country
what I have all I have, my skill as
an aviator. But France feels that
every man in France should be dead
before she will have the right to avail
herself of her women flyers. So the
authorities would not accept my
services except in an unofficial capac
ity. "It is forbidden for women to be
attached to the military service of
France, but I was given a military
pilot and was told that I could make
observation flights. I did this every
day in the month of September, de
scending in the Champ d'Aviation
(the aviation field) on my return and
reporting to an officer where I had
located enemy airships so that ar
mored aeroplanes might be sent out
to meet them.
"Once I was pursued by a taube of
the enemy. Once I was fired at, but
do not expect me to sit here and re
count to you my own deeds of hero
ism, for I shall refuse to do it! I did
very little. But it was all I could do.
I had no fear.
"No one in France thinks about
himself today. We have seen too
much suffering.
"I wish I had the words to describe
to you what I saw when I made an
observation flight three days after the
battle of the Marne over that terrible
field which saved the day for Paris
and France.
"I saw 150 kilometers of wounded
and of dead all Germans, for the
French wounded had been picked up
at once.
"Miles upon miles of wounded and
dead huddled together pathetically.
"For three days the wounded had
been without food or water. Later,
with the automobile ambulances or
the French hospitals, we went out
and picked up all the wounded we
could find."
CAKED CUCUMBERS
,Wipe six large cucumbers and
split them lengthwise. Take out the
centers leaving a boat-shaped form.
Put the centers into chopping bowl
with one firm tomato, one-half a
sweet green pepper, and a bit of
onion, chop fine and drain; add two
tablespoonfuls of dry crumbs with
two tablespoonfuls of melted but
ter. Fill cucumber boats, place a bit
of butter on the rounded tops and
bake an hour, in moderate oven.
HOUSEHOLD HELPS
Lettuce Soup. Wash 2 tablespoon
fuls of rice and add to 2 cups of
veal stock; heat 1 tablespoonful of
butter and add to it 1 scant teaspoon
ful of minced onion, cook 5 minutes,
using great care not to brown; add
onion and butter to stock and rice
and cook until rice is soft.
The care of a baby's bottle is most
important and needs to be attended
to regularly and with cleanliness. If
a sterilizer is used fill the- top of the
bottles with a little cotton as soon as
the milk is ready, cool slowly. If the
milk is kept in a thermos bottle at
night cover the cork with two thick
nesses of oil paper before putting
cork in bottle. Often there is a musty
odor to a cork that is easily ab
sorbed by the milk. Scald all corks
each day in a little soda water and
dry in the sun.
Inspect linen closet and see if any
new towels, dusters or floor cloths
are needed; look over kitchen uten
sils and if they are of granite and
are chipped discard and replace with
new ones. Such a morning's work
once a month will go a long ways
toward saving the pennies and also in
keeping the house in perfect order.
A standard measuring cup should
hold just half a pound of sugar or
water or butter solidly packed.
