How It Happened.
"It was this way," said the tattooed
man to his circle of interested lis
teners. "I was marooned on an island
in the South Pacific and captured by
a hand of savages. They demanded
a thousand dollars for my release. I
was in a terrible predicament-all my
money was in a New York bank, and
I hadn't a cent with me."
"What did you do?" asked one of
the listeners as the tattooed man
paused for breath.

TAKE TIME WITH ASPARAGUS
Prepared Hastily or Carelessly a Great
Part of Its Finer Flavor Will
The very best method of boiling as
paragus is first to wash, scrape and tie
into a bundle, and then plunge the
stalks into a vessel of boiling water, al
lowing the tips to come above the
water. The steam will be sullicient to
cook these tender parts. Serve on
toast or with melted butter. In Eu
rope a little butter is placed on the
edge of the plate and the hot head of
isparagus dipped into it before eating,
but in this country a white sauce usu
ally accompanies this dish.
An economical way, and when there
are children a more convenient way
also, is to cut the tender parts into
short lengths and cook in the least
quantity of salted water possible. It
should be done in about 20 minutes,
when it is taken from the liquor and
the latter thickened with a little flour,
butter and cream. The asparagus is
laid upon toasted bread and the sauce
poured over. In this way one gets the
full benefit of every bit of the vege
table while the tougher portions can
be made into a nice asparagus soup.
To make this, cook the stalks in
calted water until tender and press
through a sieve. Put two cupfuls of
milk over the fire or milk and a white
stock mixed. When it boils, stir in
two tablespoonfuls each of flour and
butter thoroughly rubbed together, by
pouring the scalding milk over gradu
ally. Put over the fire, and if found
too thick when brought to a boil thin
with hot milk. Add the asparagus
pulp. Season with salt and pepper,
then strain into the soup tureen.
Asparagus omelet makes a delicious
dish for either luncheon or breakfast,
and is a good way of using up cold as
paragus that is insufficient for making
into a salad.
Make a plain omelet with three
eggs, three tablespoonfuls of hot wa.
ter and salt and pepper to taste. Add
the water and the seasoning to the
yolks and beat in the whites at the
last. Pour into a hot buttered frying '
pan and cook slowly. To test whether
an omelet is cooked sufficiently press
with the finger. If it comes away
clean the omelet is ready to serve.
Turn upon a hot platter and have I
ready the asparagus heated in a little
cream or thickened milk. Fold over
and serve garnished with parsley.
Now that strawberries are in their
season oue likes to find new ways of
serving, and coming across this recipe,
it sounded "quite good," so I am going
to send it in, writes a correspondent.
One that does not care for so large
a recipe can halve it. Select the fin
est, freshest berries; hull, wash and
drain carefully. Turn them into a
deep glass dish, sprinkle each layer
with powdered sugar, and just before
serving pour over a cold boiled cus
tard made with the yolks of six eggs,
one quart of milk, one cupful of sugar,
a pinch of salt and one teaspoonful of
lemon extract. Whip the whites to a
very stiff froth, add three tablespoon
fuls of sugar and drop in large spoon
fuls in a shallow pan of boiling water.
When cooked lift them out carefully.
Cucumbers in Brown Gravy.
Prepare half a dozen medium-sized
cucumbers and cut them into thick
slices, place them in ice water, let
stand half an hour, drain, simmer in
unseasoned beef stock until tender,
then skim out the cucumbers and lay
them in a hot vegetable dish. Cook
one tablespoonful of browned flour in
one tablespoonful of butter, add the
stock, stir until thick and smooth,
season with one teaspoonful of kitchen
bouquet, one-third teaspoonful of on
ion juice and pepper and salt to taste.
Pour the sauce over the cucumbers
Strawberry and Rhubarb Pie.
Have you ever tried strawberries
in rhubarb pie? I substituted straw

sugar, one egg, two tablespoonfuls
flour, butter. Mix rhubarb, strawber
ries, sugar and beaten egg and let it
stand half an hour. Add butter and
flour rubbed together. Bake with two

and water mixed and turned over
them the last thing after other ingre
