Who bides his time and day by day
Faces defeat full patiently,
And lifts a mirthful roundelay;
However poor his fortunes be.
He will not fail in any qualm.
Of poverty the petty dime
It will grow golden in his palm,
Who bides his time.
-James W. Riley.
CHOICE, COOL DISHES.
Digestive troubles are not caused
from any one food usually, but ~from
too great an amount and
too great a variety.
Set a can of the best sal
mon into a saucepan of
bolling, water and cook
for 15 minutes. Open and
turn it out on the platter
without breaking the
raoUl. The finest salmon contains noth
ing that need be removed. Pour over
it a half pint of mayonnaise dressing,
containing a tablespoonful of horse
radish. Garnish with circles of hard
boiled egg and serve with Saratoga
Boiled Cucumbers.-Pare and cut
the cucumbers in halves, lengthwise,
mid boil in salted water until tender,
but still firm, then drain. Make a
sauce of one tablespoonful each of but
ter and flour and one cupful of the
water in which the cucumbers were
cooked ; add salt, pepper and the juice
of half a lemon; when thick and
smooth, add ona half a pimento, shred
ded, and one tablespoonful of cooked
peas. Lay the cucumber on strips of
toast and pour the sauce over them.
Green Peppers in Tomato Sauce.
Cut up two quarts of fresh tomatoes,
add one teaspoonful of salt, and boil
over a quick fire for half an hour, stir
ring occasionally; then strain. There
should be a pint or more. Put half a
cupful of oil in a casserole, and when
hot add two cloves of garlic finely
minced, fry these until brown. Now
add the strained tomatoes, a table
spoonful of minced parsley and three
basil or bay leaves. Boil ten minutes.
Cut ten green peppers in strips, remov
ing the seeds and steins, add them to
the tomato sauce and cook half an
hour. Serve hot.
Stuffed Peppers.-Cut off the stem
end o' four sweet peppers and fill with
rice, chicken, celery, onion juice, salt
and popper to taste. Moisten with olive
oil and a little tomato. Sprinkle light
ly with cheese and bake 40 minutes.
Apple with mint is well liked, using
a bunch of mint to flavor the jelly,
then color a" delicate green if desired
Use this with lamb.

Famous Matanuska Coal Fields Opened
Up by Uncle Sam's Engineers
Sooner Than Expected.
Uncle Sam's new Alaskan railroad
ls now in operation. At least it is
open for traffic now for a distance of
71 miles and coal is being carried from
the famous Matanuska coal fields to
tidewater at anchorage.
The first coal carried by the new
rord was loaded onto a train at the
Doherty mine at Moose Creek. The
Importance of this event was evident
ly ?ppreciate? by the pioneers in the
territory, for there was a large crowd
of men, women an;! children on the
scene when the loading of the coal
fro) i the bunkers to the cars was be
gun. A special train, that had been
chartered by the Anchorage chamber
of commerce, carried au enthusiastic
party of citizens from that city and
vicinity. Chairman William C.* Edes
und Lieutenant Mears of the Alaskan
engineering commission, which is in
char,;e of the construction of the rail
road, wore also in attendance, as was
Bi>h..p Rowe of Alaska.
The honor of dumping the first car
load of coal from the bunkers to the
train was enjoyed by Miss Babe White
of Anchorage, who also has the distinc
tion of having driven the first spike
on the railroad. It was pointed out
that the government's railroad had en
tered the coal fields at a much earlier
date than had been expected.
The opening of these coal fields is
regarded as a most important benefit
to boUi Alaska and the Pacific north
west. It means cheaper fuel for that
general country, and lt is confidently
predicted that it will be followed by
new industrial and mining expansion.

NO LONGER THE BOOTJACK
Day When That Implement Wa? "la
Use Has Passed Away for All
The other day a gentleman wita
pleasant recollections of old-time cus
tom, habit and social usage in Ameri
can life, wanted a bootjack and tried
to buy one, only to find that none
could be bought
It was a melancholy discovery for a
man whose memory of other customs
was' lively and loving and Indicated
that the whola picture of American
life had changed. If the bootjacks
have gone, the *>oots must have, ani
if the boots have then a whole rang?
of outdoor activities have disappeared.
To see a bootjack would bring them
all back, the rustic or semlrustic activ
ities of the little American communi
ties in which the day was begun by
getting up In the cold and building a
fire and was ended by getting the boot
Jack and dragging tightly imprisoned
feet out of stubborn boots.
The bootjack ls the symbol of bad
roads, faulty means of communication,
community and family isolation, nar
rowed but healthy amusements, bad
food, which we now recall sentimental
ly as ambrosial, bad tasts In all the
material circumstances of life, which
we now recall sentimentally as quaint.
The bootjack was one of the most
highly complicated pieces of domestic
mechanism, not many generations
from this one, which lives by turning
electric switches and pressing but
HAD BROUGHT PA'S PRAYERS
Lad Conveyed Substantial Comforts
for the Family of the Af
Once upon a time sickness came to
the family of the poorly paid pastor
of a country church. It was winter,
and the pastor was in rinancial straits.
A number of his flock decided to meet
at his house, and offer prayers for the
speedy recovery of the sick ones and
for material blessings upon the pas
tor's family. While one of the dea
cons was offering a fervent prayer for
blessings upon the pastor's household
there was a loud knock at the door.
When the door was opened a stout
farmer boy was seen, wrapped up
comfortably. "What do you want,
boy?" asked one of the elders. "I've
brought pa's prayers," replied the boy.
"Brought pa's prayers? What do you
mean?" "Yep, brought his prayers,
an' they're out in the wagon. Just
help me, an' we'll get 'em in." In
vestigation disclosed the fact that
"pa's prayers" consisted of potatoes,
flour, bacon, cornmeal, turnips, ap
ples, warm clothing, and a lot of Jol
lies for the sick ones. The prayer
meeting adjourned in short order.-?
Kills Kitchen Odors.
One of the most useful applications
of electricity about the household is a
motor-driveh exhaust fan for the kitch
en. Attempt to ventilate this room
by opening windows and doors ls
bound to fail, especially in the winter
I time. Without a ventilator thc odors
from cooking will penetrate the entire
I house and linger in the rooms long
I after the meal itself is gone. The
j motor-driven fan consists, as the
name suggests, of a small motor at
tached to a powerful fan in an upper
pane of a window, near the range. The
device is mounted well toward the top
of the room. Tho motor is attached
to the lighting circuit and provided
with a suitable snap switch for start
I ing and stopping it. During tho oper
ation of cooking the switch is turned,
and the fan forces out a steady stream
of air, carrying with it all smoko, gasea
and objectionable odors.
Where the Games of Yesteryear?
I have wondered sometimes why the
boys in the town where I live now nev
er play marbles or spin tops. In the
past five years I have -not seen a sin
gle game of marbles or once heard the
?brill request. "Gimme a peg at yours."
It is not strange that the slingshot has
vanished, for automobile tires use up
all the available rubber. But why
should tops and marbles vanish from
the earth? They have gone the way ,
of the delightful children's matinees
at the old Boston Museum, no doubt, j
and the Kate Greenaway books, and
the jackstones little girls used to toss
by the hour, sitting on the front steps.
It makes one feel middle aged and
mournfully reminiscent. - From the

GETTING HIS GOAT
By DEAN HERRICK.
Eric Balley had been called np "on
th? carpet," and now stood cap In
band listening to Archibald Flahav
Flahaven pounded hi? desk and hi*
apoplectic face took oa an alarming
color. "Anyway," he bellowed, "I want
you to let Viola alone."
So that was ltl Eric had suspected
aa much. It wasn't the number of
steel rails that had been scrapped
after all that was causing this tempest
In the general manager's brain. His
hand clenched, then relaxed and an
amused smile curled the corners of his
Hps. But Instantly alive to his posi
tion, he sobered again.
Flahaven sprang up. "Laugh, "blast
you! We'll see who'll laugh. Do you
think I'm going to have my daughter
waste her time on a day laborer? If I
catch you flirting with Viola again,
or so much as looking at her, Til not
only discharge you, but blacklist you
"But Mr. Flahaven-n
"You'll be sorry. I love Viola and
she loves me !" flashed the young man.
A notice to get his money and quit
reached his department almost as
soon as he did. "All right," he said
cheerfully to the messenger. "Say,
Tim, want to make a dollar?"
"Go and bet Patsy O'Brien that TU
get the old man's goat in' two weeks."
"Aw, go on!"
That night, as pre-arranged by tele
phone, Viola met Eric at the gate of
her father's premises.
"Hello, dearest girl!" he whispered
cheerfully, drawing her close. Tn
going away, dear, but I'm coming back
before long. I've been discharged and
I'm going to hunt. more work. But,
tell me first, do you really love me?"
"Forever-and you know lt, Eric"
"And you are willing to be poor and
pack lunches for rae, and have me
come home black os a miner evefy
"You are the very dearest girl In the
world! Now I must go. Good-by,
"Milly," said her father at break
fast, addressing his wife, "I wish you
would do something for me."
Mrs. Flahaven acquiesced with th?
celerity her husband always demand
ed In advance. "Yes, Archibald."
"Give a party!"
"Yes, yes. Give a big one, bang-ut
-go the limit Rockwell, the pres!
[ I plant are coming up for a couple ol
i j days. Have it then !"
i j "All right, Archibald. A dlnnei
11 dance will be just the thing!"
. I "And Viola, make the best of your
: j opportunities !"
"Yes, father!" But poor Viola was
white and miserable.
Days passed, busy ones for every
I body, wretched ones for Viola. One
' afternoon the desk phone in Flahav
en's office rang. Rockwell asked him
to come to a conference of officials at
Flahaven went. He was shown to
a room where chairs were arranged
around a big mahogany tallie, but ouly
j one of which was occupied,
i "How do you do, Mr. Flahaven?
I Won't you sit down? We're both a
Wt early, but the others will be In
"Eric Bailey!" choked the general
"I'm piad you remember me!"
! smiled Eric. "I didn't think I was so
1 The other was speechless.
"I've been thinking over a few
things, Mr. Flahaven. I want some
advice. Once there was a young man
who happened suddenly by a death to
fall into a position he was not fitted :
for. So, without telling anyone what j
he was going to do, he put on over
BUS and determined to learn a thing
or two about labor himself. Then he
happened to fall In love with a girl,
the daughter of a man who had I
worked his way up from the ranks to
power. For this crime he was dis
charged and blacklisted. Now the
young man had it in his power to dis
charge the father, but he was trying,
among other things, to learn self-con
trol. So he got out of town and took
a few days to think lt over. He de
cided to let things go and not make
a fuss, but he thinks he ought to have
a reward. Now, what would you say
was fair, Mr. Flahaven?"
"Anything!" faltered the other.
"All right Thank you, slr. Sup
pose you announce the engagement at
your big party, then." He rang a bell
sharply, and a page appeared. "Tell
the gentlemen to come in now," he
said ; "and yo<?," turning to the general
manager, "get out!"
"But-" protested Flahaven.
"Get out!" thundered Eric, banging
the table as the other meekly obeyed.
The corners of his mouth twitched.
"I deserved that much," he said to him
self. "I guess I'm about even with
iii m now."
And as six dignified men came filing
nto the roora he reached for the tele
phone. "This ls Eric, Tim," he ex
gained. "Collect that dollar from
