To the heroic, the sensational in

added a touch of real pathos, Dale
Gregory realized, as, safely leaving
Ora at her humble home, he drove
away thoughtful and roused "consid

"Sweet, patient little creature!" he
mused. "What contrasts in life! Why,
really, she has brought out some
sense of my real worthiness. What

Of course, Miss Chandler sent for
Ora. Shallow-souled amid her indo

fully recognized the deep debt of
gratitude she owed. Then, of course,
Dale Gregory's part in the fire rescue
came to light.
"I've won her!" the ardent young

Don't be finicky. Be willing to
try new foods. Certain plentiful and
nourishing foods widely used and en
joyed in one section are practically
unknown in other sections of the
country. Learn to know ALL the
good things, not a. few only.
People too easily get into food
ruts; insist on eating only the food
they are used to, and refuse to give
a fair trial to others. This causes
undue demand for certain staples,
with resulting scarcity or high prices
when crops are short. At the same
time other valuable foods may be
relatively cheap and available. A strik
ing instance of this is failure fully to
appreciate rice a valuable source of
starch when potatoes are scarce
and high. Another example is' re
fusal in certain sections to use any
thing but wheat as a breadstuff,
when corn a valuable cereal wide
ly used elsewhere as a breadstuff
is plentiful and relatively cheap.
Learn how to cook all kinds of
staple foods and to serve them in a
variety of ways. Simple dishes well
prepared are better than expensive
foods badly cooked.
Many persons are prejudiced
against certain good foods because,
when first tried, the foods were im
properly cooked or prepared.
Remove from your vocabulary
"don't like" or "can't eat."
Most individual prejudices against
widely popular foods are either imag
inary or baseless.
Try to like every simple food; give
it a fair trial.
