THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. , FRIDAY. AUGUST 8, 1913.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: My friend Is
girl 19, working In a department
store, earning (5 per week. She la a
Jewish girl and has been going steady
with a Gentile fellow and of course her
parents, very strict Jews, object to It
She says she could not be happy
without him. She want3 to leave
home and board. He said It she ever
needed anything h would help her
out. ' Now you might think he does
not mean well with her, but he does,
for he is a gentleman and comes from
very nice people who are fond of the
Do you think It would be wrong for
her to accept assistance from him?
Can her parents compel her to stay
at home? Would it do any good to
report her brother for striking her?
The girl is old enough to marry
without her parents' consent, accord
ing to the laws of this country. If
the man loves her and wishes to pro
tect her, he should marry her and
not offer her assistance without mar
riage. She cannot honorably accept
help from him If she leaves her par
ents, and she Is not making enough
money to support herself. If the
the young man doesn't want to marry
her and so stop all the'trouble, she
had better give him up and stay with
her parents. She need rot go with
any other man if she does not want to.
Her parents cannot compel her to
stay at home, for she is of legal age.
I do not think it woild help matters
any to report the brother for striking
we do not care to keep company with,
without hurting any feelings.
(4) What will make our hands
(1) I like to see boys and girls be
friends as long as they are not
"mushy," and I certainly see no ob
jection to your being friends with the
nice boys of your neighborhood,
(2) Do not do anything to which
your parents object. They know best.
my dears, and are thinking of your
young people. This is one of a series
of parties to be given in -Miss Con

Dear Mrs. Thompson: We are two
girls, 14 and 15 years of age.

boy friends come to visit us once In

THRIFT IX THE KITCHEN.
Among the most valuable importa
tions made by private individuals re
turning from a sojourn in Europe is
one that has thus far escaped the most
vigilant customs inspectors. This val
uable possession arrives without ma
terial shape and consists in a new
comprehension of the' possibilities of
more careful and thrifty habit in us
ing our abundant food supplies. For
tunately it Is being brought in with
increasing frequency at a time when
we are recognising the need of it
more and more.
, In our kitchen, as in many other
departments of oar industrial life, we
are finding today new uses for. the
education which we have been push
ing for so many years. In our grand
mother s days, when the house was
the center of industrial enterprises, the
effort of the housewife was to learn
how to do or to direct ail processes
of the manufacture of domestic sup
The most Intelligent housewife today
must study the very opposite how !
to secure the best household articles '
outside the house, because the mod-;
era means of quick and cheap trans-
portation have made it possible thus
to co-operate in producing these ar
ticles in wholesale quantities, thereby
reducing the cost.
We have been very busy develop
ing the education of our women, with
the certainty that only by this means
could they keep pace with the enor
mous developments in the industrial
world brought about by the fertility
in invention of our men. The time
has come when we are beginning to
demand extraordinary evidences In our
households that these developments
in the education of women are justified
CAS GAIN' IX ECONOMY.
On the whole, we know that our ideas
on domestic hygiene and comfortable
living are farther advanced than those
of any European people, but that in
matters of economy In the household
we can study and adapt with profit
many of the ideas and practices pre
valent in Europe, especially in France
and Italy. J
In the first place, we must change
the customs in our, markets by ere-!
ating a .demand which the market-
men will meet for supplies sold In
small quantities for small families. j
Why Is it that if we have an invald j
in the nome tor wnom we want a
bit of chicken, we have to buy a I
whole chicken and to feed the fam
ily with It even if it costs more than
we can afford? Because we have no
way of buying just what we need, but
we buy what gives the marketman
the least trouble and the least risk.
Of course if we all bought only what
we need, there is also no risk for the
marketman, for he will usually have j
some customers who desire ihe cholc-,
est and some who rrust limit their j
desires to the cheapest, and in any j
case lie would Boon adjust his pur
chases to the demands.
This Is very true where business
women or girls are doing their own
cooking. If they could occasionally
buy the neck a-d wings of chicken,
cook these slowly into delicious broth
and then with the addition of rice,
carrots, peas, etc., an entire meal
would be ready for only a few cents
with good food value at the same time.
A small family could also be fed more
economically if they could buy Just
the cuts they could afford, not always
Including in that purchase the most
expensive cuts also.
IJEI.IC ATM !OVP.
Material Chicken wings, two;
chicken feet, two; neck, one;" water,
one and one-half quarts; rice, three
tablespoons; onion, one-fourth cup;
turnip, one-fourth cup; carrot, one
fourth cup; celery, one-fourth cup;
parsley, salt, pepper.
Directions Scald, scrape and clean
the feet of the chicken, also wings and
neck; put them Into the soup kettle
with the given amount of water, bring
to the boiling point and simmer very
slowly for one hour. Clean and cut
the vegetables In dice and add those
to the stock with the parsley and sea
soning. Remove the chicken, add
three tablespoonfuls of rice and cook
until the rice is tender. All of this
may be rubbed through a puree sieve
or serve with the vegetables whole.
