He calls on mev Wednesday and Sat

place for meeting that is, if we go
out together. As I work all week,
sometimes I dont feel like going, so
I am not there, but my chum is always
there whether I am or not. She says
she doesn't care for him at all, but
they go out together for th rest of
the evening and I have been told they
are seen together other times. I have
seen them together myself, but he
says they never meet by appointment.
Now I don't, want to be mean. I
don't want to blame her if she isn't
hiame. She makes me think she is
waiting to see me. as we don't see
each other very often. If I thought
he liked her I would give him up at

FORETOLD BY DREAMS.
Two Remarkable Cases In Which Sleep
Warnings Came True.
"I dreamed that the ship was in a
heavy sea. that a big wave came over
her bows, pressed down upon her,
and then she rolled over on her star
board side and disappeared."
This Is not an extract from a story.
It is evidence, given on oath, during

Thus one more was added to the ex

dreams have ll;ured.
The third I)rd Waterford was able
to verify a story of an extraordinary
dream coming true. Talking one day
with tbe landlord of the Inn in the vil
lage close to Curraghmore. a man
rushed up and said there had been a
murder on the hills. "Then It must be
tbe little one." said tbe landlord, at
which Lord Waterford. not unnatural
ly, became very suspicious. Tbe land
lord proceeded to explain that in the
night he dreamed that two men bad
come to tbe inn and that the taller of
the two had murdered the shorter
with a very curious knife.
He told bis dream to his wife, who
laughed at him. But. to his borror.
the men he bad seen while asleep
came to tbe inn, and one used tbe curi
ous knife to cut up bis food. They
left, and soon afterward news of the
murder arrived. Search waa made for
a tall man answering to tbe landlord's
description, and one was quickly ar

neck?" queried a ranch owner of Cali

on a long ride over tbe plains one of
his principal annoyances is having to
wipe dust from his eyes. His heavy
gauntlets make it impossible to use
his hands, and be ties his handkerchief
loosely around his neck and whan
occasion requires uses it to clear bis
eyes. It is the most convenient place
to carry the handkerchief while riding

COOKING BY ELECTRICITY.
In attending the Woman's Industrial
exhibition In New York this week, I
wondered if there was really anything
In this world that was not fot" woman
or that she did not have something to
do with the making or disposition of
in the home. We surely have passed
the age when women's hands lie idly !
in their laps, for the rugs we saw wov
en, dresses and bonnets made, mar
malades, jams and jellies, candies. '
work by children and cooking, all
showed evidence of doing.
A model municipal terminal' market
designed by a woman helps solve the
economic wastes in transportation
and distribution of foods.
The sanitary arrangement of homes
and the artistic decoration of the
rooms seemed to represent elimina
tion, rather than putting many so
called decorative things into It. A few
good articles of furniture, one or two
vases, well arranged, color effect quiet,
but effective, all these must have an
artistic influence on many people who
paid their respects to these carefully
designed and furnished homes.
The "Kitchen de Luxe" was a kitch
on and dining room together, which
seemed quite the proper thing, as this
method of cooking Is as clean and ar
rangement of the kitchen so orderly
and attractive there seemed no neces
sity for separating the;-e two rooms
which are so closely linked together.
I As I have cooked entirely for more
than a year by electricity, I was nat
urally interested in what they were
cooking at this exhibition. Electrical
cooking is not guess cooking, and un
til it is made possible for all house
keepers to have it, for cooking and bak-
ing, we cannot exactly know the neces- j
sary heat units to use, as we have no
way of determining them. When the
price of electritjty is within reach of
all housekeepers then arci'rafcy and ex
act science will have come in cooking
and until then it cannot be. In lectur
ing for years to thousands of women,
good cooks and otherwise, on this side
of the ocean or the other side, the
question always is, "How hot should
we have the oven?" "What is a moder
ately hot oven?" and "I can make a
cake but I do not know just the temper
ature of the oven" is what I hear at ev
ery lecture. The baking is the big
problem. The necessary heat units in
relation to the food rooked or baked
Is the difficult thing for any one. I
must confess that since I have ben
able to rook by electricity with accur
acy I find it much harder work and
with less certainty when cooking by
other fuel. But the time Is rapidly
approaching when it Is going to be
within reach of all. A fireless electric
stove saves electricity, and in cooking
for a family of two or four persons, by
using good cense, which means look
ing after the current, I can keep the
price as reasonable and sometimes less
than artificial gas. Every woman can
do it if she tries. I have even saved
much current In the regular electric
range by turning off the current and
letting the baking finish on the re
tained heat. Of course that requires
thinking, but that is what we were
given brains for.
If we are not quite ready yet for
the range we may perhaps have an
electric toas'er. which is most practi
cal aa electric chafing dish in which
many good things may be made and
easily watched at the table while cook
ing. Then if a hot plate is added to
this a whole meal, supper or break
fast, Is easily prepared. I had elec
tric buttons fastened underneath my
dining room table, at my right hand
so I could turn the current on or off
as desired. Below I will give some of
the dishes I saw prepared at th
"kitchen de luxe" and the cost of cirr
rent and these may be prepared on
the chafing dish or stove.
