"She gave me a message for you.
She said I was to tell you a man can
be too late and yet succeed. She
said it's broken off, and Oh, John,
come and meet Lesbia. She doesn't
dare come to you. Are you a man or
a stone? No, never mind your hat,
John. Lesbia wont care. It's only
a few yards round that house of the
funny old man with the goatee."

THIS IS THE TIME FOR STRING
BEANS! VEGETABLES CHEAPER
By Caroline Coe.
This is the time of year to serve
vegetables in any and all ways. They
are coming into the market from the
south and are getting cheaper. They
should take the place of the heartier
food for they are healthful and
abound in nutrition. Beans should
be cooked" as soon as possible after
being gathered, for if they are not
fresh they will require long cooking
and the flavor is lost.
Do not allow string beans that have
become wilted to stand in water.
Wash them and put them in a damp
cloth and set in cool place for two
hours. Break the tring from each
end and cut in inch pieces. Cook in
boiling water until tender and add
salt when nearly done. The cooks of
the south boil beans much longer
than we do in the north. The term
"cooking tender" must mean as each
housekeeper likes them cooked.
Many of the recipes give 40 minutes
to three hours.
This is the season of the year when
man takes his vacation.
He hies him off to woods and lakes
in search of recreation.
He pulls his oar 'neath scorching
sun; his hands and neck he scorches.
His bed is hard, his room is hot as
The poison ivy swells his hands, the
sunburn peels his shoulders.
He eats canned beef and milk con
densed and biscuit hard as boulders.
He builds a fire down on the beach'
and sits and chokes and strangles.
Mosquito, chigger and the flea tot
his shrinking flesh hold wrangles.
Two weeks of torture he endures
then hies him back to store.
And works for 50 dismal weeks tJ
do it all once more.
