ing to him when he attempts to charge
her twice as much for beefsteaks and

customers, the sharp-eyed housekeepers

Miss Marlowe Is a shrewd buyer, and
keeps well posted on the prices of com

during her more or less modest efforts
at cookery and nnnounces that Dumas
Is her favorite author, giving for a rca
eon the fact that the author of Monte
Crlsto was an expert cook.
She loves to tell tho story of how Du

accidental manner, which ufterwaid be
came the vogue In Tarls.
It seems that one evening a number
of his friends descended upon him. and
discovered that his larder was empty.
Hero It wus that the culinary genius of
Dumas came to tho front. Some of his
friends had brought with them some
slices of ham and sausage, nnd Dumas
laid hands on these, and uftrr much
rummaging In his cupboard he discov
ered a quantity of rice, some butter and
a few sliced tomatoes.
From tho latter, with some butler, he
concocted a rich sauce, and then boiled
rice was added, Interspersed with slices
of ham. With these Ingredients a sav
ory dish was made, and tho friends
were summoned to the repast. They all
praised tho "rlz nux tomatoes." and
praised It still more when Dumas tnl'
them the secret of Its manufacture. Iln
was ns delighted as though he hud writ

she had cooked It, but after Hilly Pig -had
one basket full ho thought he
would taste Just a little tiny ear which
he found. "Mother will not mind If I
do not eat the big ones," lie said as he

the cornstalks grew the tallest and the
thickest and went to sleep.

of walling, so after a while he walked
toward the corn field.

sound; then ho wnlked over to tho corn
and looked around. When ho could not

he walked away very softly.
When he reached the open field he

rtntlied the corn stalks and put It ll
around him. He even covered his head,
leaving Just a little place where ho
could see. Then he wnlked to the place
where Billy Pig was sleeping und begnn
to mako a queer noise. "Woof. woof,

The buffalo robe was dark colored,
and when Hilly Pig opened his ees and
saw the dreadful creature looking at
him ho was frightened almost to death.
"Woof, woof,' said Hilly Goat again,
