Creed of the Open Hoad. SAVORY DISHES FROM ITALY. Our simple mnnner of cooking maca roril, one of the commonest of Italian dishes, Is not a simple dish when prepared by them. Macaroni a la Rlstorl. Wlpo a pound of lean beef, add a fourth of a pound of raw ham cut In dice, and a large onion sliced, wash and remove the stems from a pound of tomatoes cut In small pieces; place nil together In a large sauce pan with two tablespoonfuls of olive oil, a sprig of paisley and a bay leaf; simmer gently for two hours, then add one pint of boiling water and continue to cook until the sauce becomes re duced and thickened Into a mass In which the different Ingredients are well blended.

It's no in books, It's no in lear To make men truly blest; If happiness has not her sent And center In the breast, We may be wlso or rich or great, But never can bo blest. Burns. CHICKEN FOR TWO. In a family of two, poultry Is not us often used ns desired because It Is too much meat to be cooked at once. In some markets a half a chicken mny be purchased but even when this is not pos sible a fowl may be spread over several days without becoming monot onous. For one meal the drumsticks may be cooked, these from a six to eight pound fowl will furnish sufllclent meat to satisfy any .appetite. After stewing them in n lit tle boiling water to keep In all the Juices and flavors, brown them In a little butter and servo with drawn nutter sauco and baked potatoes, The wings and neck may be stewed and prepared In the form of a small chick en pie with the giblets made Into a rich sauce to serve with It. Now the breast may bo cooked, served In a white sauce ns cream chicken or thin ly sliced nnd used for sandwich fill ing or combined with celery and ap ple with boiled dressing making a laost delicious snlad. The second Joints Iniiy be cooked nnd browned as were the drumsticks or they may be cooked to make a fine broth, removing the 'bones and add vegetables nnd cook In n casserole, adding rice or macaroni. Chicken Jelly. Take one chicken 'breast, a pint of ttock In which the chicken was cooked, anil n package of gelatin. Dlssolvo the gelatin, add onion Juice, celery salt or various sea sonings, adtl the breast and mix all to gether. Pour In a mold and when hard ened serve as a salad with dressing. After all the chicken has been con sumed but the bones, they too. mny be stewed after cracking them. Cover them with cold water, add a slice of onion nnd cook until all the fiavor has been extracted. Strain, add a little cooked rice or barley, ono or two beat en eggs, and some hot milk or thin cream with plonty of seasonings' nnd you have a most delicious cream of chicken soup. The thrifty housewife In these days, scalds thj feet and skins them when they are cooked In the broth after all are "well trimmed. They contain quite .a little gelatin and add to the llavor of the soup. For an lnvlld's meal a bit of broiled chicken breast sorved on toast Is n most drinty meal. It may bo broiled In a bit of buttered letter paper, wrapped (Irmly, and pinned together, thus saving nil the fine flavor. The fleeseiy wteeHsl small fillets are more tender than the; lnrger ones and two may be served If oue does not seem sufllclent. SEASONABLE SALADS. Mix cream cheese with finely chopped peanuts and a little cream, mold In small balls and dust until red, with pa prika, place three on let tuce leaves and garnish with slices of radish or have them cut In tbo form of tulips. Serve, with any salad dressing desired. Cauliflower Salad. Trim the stall; and out side leaves of a fresh cauliflower nnd soak In salted water for .'!() minutes.

Pour French dressing over all, garnish with lettuce leaves, and serve cold. Lemon Jelly and Cabbage Salad. Take a package of lemon Jelly, add two cupfult of chopped or shredded cabbage, a little shredded onion, two green peppers and one red one, mix well and mold. Serve with mayonnaleo on lettuce. Apple Salad. Arrange diced pine apple on lettuce leaves and In the cen ter put a few shrimps, around this put a circle of chopped apple and celery and garnish with mnyonnalso made pink with paprika. Tomato and Cucumber Salad. Whllo these vegetables are still expensive, two or three tomatoes with one cucum ber will serve several people If care fully cut. A firm, ripe tomato, If small, may be cut In halves, thus serving two, or, if large, cut In slices for three or four. Arrange these pieces of tomato on head lettuce and heap cn each slice a spoon ful of finely diced cucumber mixed with finely minced southern onion, then serve with either French or may onnaise dressing. A few dates nnd raisins added to Waldorf salad makes a change and Is liked. Take twice as much apples as celery and a few nuts with a handful of dates and raisins, mix well and serve with French dressing on lettuce or In nests of water cress which Is especially good at this season. Polnsettla Salad. Small, bright, red tomatoes may he cut In sections like n llower, either six or eight petals, and the center filled with a yellow dress-. lug, served on lettuce or water cross, It makes u most attractive salad. There Is not a creaturo from England's king To tho peasant that delves the soil, That knows half the pleasures the seasons bring. If he havo not his share of toll. WHEN FRIENDS DROP IN TO TEA. The housewife who keeps a few things on her emergency shelf for the unexpected Is n e v e r a Hurried, hurried and anx ious liostes s. If she is a woman. who 1 1 v e s In small town, next door to a grocery, it Is not so vital that she keep sup plied, and yet even she may he sur prised when the store Is closed nnd there Is no place to get a hurried sun- ply. There are any number of things thnt the forehanded woman does on days that are rnlny and things aro at a standstill In various ways. Sho mny prepnre pastry all ready for tho adding of the water, put It In a glass Jar and keep It In a cool place, when a pie can be quickly prepared. Keep: on this emergency shelf a Jar of broad crumbs, some finely flavored cheese, grated, several cans of soup, a nox or sardines, and salted codfish as well as cans of salmon and tunn fish, n bottle of olives, a box of salted crackers, a few fruit cookies and gln gersnaps, a can of cream, Jnrs of ba con and dried beef and other dainties which mny appeal to the taste. These will all keep, except perhaps the crumbs and cheese. A can of boiled snlad dressing Is always a help In time of nend; homemnde pickles, catsup, preserves nnd Jellies are always In or der, with a few nuts ready to use, the dishes one may prepare will be many and the care Is all over when the shelf Is well supplied. It should be a rule never to use one of these things with out replacing It at the earliest oppor tunity. Another fine nrrangement for the hostess who Is apt to bo disturbed at a sudden onslnught of company, Is to have a carefully prepared menu (or threo or four) with nil the necessnry recipes for preparing the dishes care fully written out on the sheet nnd hung where a glance will tell how to. go about the preparation. Your meal may be partly prepared when tho, guests arrive, hut with a glance at your menu lists you will be ublo to' supplement or add something to your meal which will make It moro suit able. An oyster-white silk crepe, a pongee or "khnkl-kool" or nny of tho new heavy weaves In silk, will ninke an nftcrnoon gown like that shown In the picture, that could not be excelled for simple elegance or refinement. The trend of fashion tQward the straight silhouette has placed the seal of ap proval on plain straight hanging skirts, nnd on long bodices without definition at the waistline. Beautiful accuracy In tho plaits and In every other detail of tho mnk- AFTERNOON FROCK lug of this gown, Is essential, ns In nil simple designs. In this respect the home dressmnker must be faithful to tho model If she undertakes to copy It ; but a light wool or heavy cotton fab rlc may be used Instend of silk, with good success. Smnll shepherd check, In black and white, decornted with black soutache braid will convert the model" Into a perfect one-piece street dross. As pictured tho dress Is mndo of a heavy silk crepe and fnstens nt tho front with white buttons, set close to gether, nnd loops of silk cord. Down each side of tho bodice at the back nnd front n border design in soutache braid provides a decoration In perfect hnrmony with the dress. The design Is widened nt the shoulders to extend to the urm's-eyc. Tho sleeves nre long and without cuffs, but the braided pat tern apijears at the wrist and three buttons, matching those thnt fasten the dress, are sot close together here. A narrow, Hat sash of the material Is finished at the end with n bit of hntul some fringe. It'ls tacked -to the dress and looped over nt the front. The neck Is mnnnged with the same re serve thnt characterizes the entire de sign, having a nnrrow V-shaped opening, small rovers, and cape collar nt the back. Resting upon well-earned laurels those who think up, or dream out or discover our millinery for us, might leave us to choose midsummer bars THE STORY OF from among the styles already pre.M-nt- I cd. For by the time Kaster arrives they have attended to nil needs, not neglecting those of June brides nnd bridesmaids and tourists and sports women nnd people1 who nro devoted to tailored things. The story of summer hats Is told and It never was more In teresting or better. The group of hats shown bore gives nn Inkling of tho variety of choice which promises a happy ending to the shopping tour. There nre lints of tho airiest braids and tulle and hats of fabrics more substnntlnl, nlong wltH heavier braids and bodies that wo havo known for many yenrs. One of these, appears in the mllun, with round crown and fiat brim, prettily trimmed with a cluster of strawberries at each side and a fiat bow of narrow ribbon nppllcd to the crown at the front. Ml- bins nre very flno this year and do tiot seem heavy even by comparison with hats of lace braid. FOR MIDSUMMER One of the latter Is pictured with a wider brim than tho mllun model and a round crown. It Is bordered, on the tinder brim, with u narrow ribbon gath ered at the Inner edge and a ribbon Ih Introduced Into the crown In the same way. A cluster of smnll roses Is posed at the front. This Is u fnvorlte trim mlng for both black and white hair braid lints. The third hat Is an unusual model of purple georgette crepe nnd slppor straw In the same color. Tho upper aijd under brim nre of crepe with a scalloped border of the straw. The top crown and part of tho sldo crown are covered with crepe, also with a wide band of straw covering that por tion of the crown which appears below the wreath of violets nnd smnll roses encircling it. The flowers nre In their natural colors and they are lacquered by a process which stiffens nnd bright ens them so thnt they will hold their own In the summer sun. Ugc for Discarded Waists. A most satisfactory way of using up nil discarded shirtwaists which but ton In the back, and after they nre worn out under the sleeves, Is to mnko them Into children's drosses. Lenv the backs as they are, start from wnlst SUMMER HATS. line, cutting upward, 'uvlng two Inches for the shoulder of tho dress.

For a smnll child they will be long enough to even off the bottom nnd hem up, while for a larger child u Ilounco of hnmbiirg or luce can be used. They nre very easily and quickly made, ntt I have made theiri, and And them very satisfactory, writes; a mother. Deputy Minister of Highways of On tario Advises Taxpayers to Pay for Them by Bond Issue. No mntter how good tho surface- of a road mny be, If the bridges aro weak nnd the culverts poor, the highway Is far from satisfactory. Tho nnntinl rec ord of bridge failures under threshing! machines nnd other heavy loads makes n long list, nnd tho cost of repairing the annual damngo to poor culverts! Is a largo sum. In progressive com munities, therefore, strong steel nnd concrete bridges nnd well built cul-i Substantial Structure. verts are being constructed before ex pensive road surfacing Is done, says Indlnnn Farmer. This work Is often puld for out of the annual tax levy for road and bridge const ruction, and absorbs such u largo part of tho funds thnt too little money Is left for gradlnc the surfac ing. Good bridges and culverts nre permanent structures, nnd tho deputy minister of highways of Ontario, Hon. W. A. McLean, has advised the taxpay ers of that province to pay for them by a bond Issue where tho total ex penditure for the purpose Is large. In such a case he suggests compiling a complete list of the bridges nnd cul verts needed, prepnrlng plans and es-. tlmates for their construction, and then flnnnclng tho work so that Its cost will be equitably distributed over a period of years rather than bo con centrated on tho taxpayers of a few years. Where there aro few of these structures and nono Is expensive, the policy of paying for them out of the annual tax levy cannot be criticized, In his opinion, for It does not Interfere appreciably with satisfactory progress In grading, drainage, surfacing nnd maintenance. SAVE COST OF MAINTENANCE. Highways Which Cost Most at First Are Always Cheapest to Keep in Good Condition. (By It. XV. GAY. Mississippi Experiment Station.) With the recently awakened Interest In tho cause of good roads the ques tion of financing road building Is of, first Importance. How road building, can be paid for Is not tho only serious question, however, but which ono of( sevcrnl possible methods of construc tion will best suit the needs of tho community nnd give the people tho best roads at. as smnll cost ns posslblo within the limit of the available funds. The first cost may be only a small part of tho total. Roads must be maintained In good condition, nnd the' chenpest road Is tho one thnt costs' least per year to build and keep In shape for travel. In New York stato, It was found cheaper to expend $25,000 a mile In the construction of brick highways than to pay from $7,1)00 to $10,000 a mile for macadam hecauso of the difference In cost of upkeep. To stive maintenance expense the. Idea of present economy must not boj allowed to overshadow the Importance; of building pennnnent "highways. As n rule tho roads which cost tho most at first will bo the cheapest to main tain. LONG ROADWAY OF CONCRETE: Remarkable Example of Ubcb of That' Material In California Cost Almost $395,000. Under supervision of tho California stato highway commission there hnsi Jwst been completed the longest con crete roadway In tho world, a remark able example of tho uses of that ma terial.
