.The World' Hiflhest Paid Woman
A correspondent asks these ques
tion!: "Why Is love the most perish
able commodity in the world? Why do
w husbands and wives so soon fall out
of love with each other?

: ried they are almost Idiotically senti

a few months they seem to cease to

indifferent, antagonistic, fighting like
T kilkenny cats Instead of billing and
coping like turtle doves as they did
. on jihe hinder side of the altar. Yet,
to far as the outsider can see, there
is no reason for the change in tem
perature' of their affection. Both hus
band and wife are Just what they
were before marriage so far as per
sonal charm goes; both are good, re
spectable people anxious to do their
duty. '
"What has killed their affection so
soon! And. Is there any known pre-
Kcrrative in which romantic love may
be canned so that it will keep fresh
and sweet after the honeymoon?
Certainly, dear correspondent, there
is a way to keep love. Put it up in
incense. That is a guaranteed recipe
that never fails.
Would yon keep the fires of af
'fection forever alight in the breast
of husband or, wife? Feed the flames
continually with words of devote and
adulation. .. ; ,

A man will tell a woman before he
is married to her that she is the moet
beautiful, fascinating, intelligent crea
ture on earth, and that he adores her
wildly, madly, frantically. And after
he is married to her be never men

anything she does.
In reality he probably thinks Just
as well of hin wife as he did of h.s
sweetheart. Perhaps he admires her
more, for the sense of possession
generally throws a halo around the
thing possessed, and a man is apt to
esteem his wife superior to other
women Just because she is his wife,
ag he, thinks his gun, his dog, his au
tomobile better than those belonging
to anybody else.
He may appreciate to the fullest
every bit of the fineness of her, and
be deeply grateful for the sacrifices
she makes for him, but be never
bothers to tell her to.
After a while, if he is sensitive, he
begins to perceive that her love for
him has lost some of its freshness
and bloom. Later he discovers that
it Is withered and faded and, may be.

at the falseness of women. But he
never realizes that the fault is his.
and that he killed her beautiful affec

watered by constant assurance of ad
miration and appreciation, than a
rose can bloom in an arid and rainless

the board of trade has taken up the

men to promise that they will go to

will have to get into touch with lust
about 12 members each.
It was decided that President Vi

Island Grown Grapes in the Market;
Some Hints as to How to Use Them
Some months ago Honolulu house
wives were advised by -food experts
that when grapes were selling at
three pounds for twenty-five cents it
was efficient housekeeping . to use
them in the menu. This week the
market is offering the Isabella for
six cents a pound and the provident
husekeeper Is adding "them to her
preserve store as well as using them
liberally on her table. The Isabella
grape, black and tart tasting, zs much
like the Concord and lends Itself well
to any recipe where the. Concord can
be used. History has it that the Isa
bella grape was brought here from
Madeira by a Pottnguese immigrant
ship and, proving hardy and Yes is tan t
to disease, has become the leading
grape of the islands.. We need not
turn pacifist nor believe all "the silver-tongued
orator from Nebraska"
says .to enjoy these grape products,
rather It is the best kind or a war
measure to use upon our tables not
only Island grown products, but island
grown products when they are li sea
son and most plentiful.
The best liked ;form of: the grape is
as grape juice and as this is the most
economical way of preserving and the
foundation for many grape dishes,
grape cookery logically begins with
making grape juice.
Grape Juice
Use firm and not over, ripe grapes
if the juice Is for jelly making; fully
ripe grapes' for ' sherbets, drinks,
sauces and puddings. Stem and clean
the fruit and barely cover with water;
cook until the fruit IS soft, usually
about thirty minutes, strain through
A coarse sieve, then let the juice drain
through a fine meshed jelly bag.? This
juice may be bottled and kept for
later use or made at once into 'other
food products. In bottling, observe
the usual methods of canning. Suc
cessful canning is perfect steriliza
tion, not only of the food product, but
of any utensil that touches It, and
it must stay that way if it is to keep.
The lower the heat and the more
quickly this sterilization is accom
plished, the brighter the color and the
better the flavor "of the Juice.
Grape Sauce
Wash and stem the grapes, remove
the pulp from the skins by a Quick
pinch between thumb and finger.
Keep the pulp - and . skins separate,
adding a very little water to the skins,
and cook until tender. Sift the hot
pulp through the ordinary rotary flour
sifter (this removes the seeds) and
to each cup of this eedless pulp add
one-half cup of sugar, add too the
cooked skins, stir until the sugar is
dissolved, chill and serve the same as
you would apple sauce. '
Grape Shortcake
Make a cake of two cups of flour.
four teaspoons of baking powder, one
half cup of shortening,' one-half cup
of sugar, three-fourths cup ot milk,
one teaspoon salt. Mix to a dough
and bake In a loaf about 20 minutes.
split while warm, butter, and lay to
gether again, then pour grape sauce,
as made by the above recipe, over
it and serve.
Grape Jelly Sauce
(To be served with steamed pud
dings or plain boiled rice when served
sTs dessert) One-half glass of grape
Jelly, one cup of boiling water, two
teaspoons of cornstarch, three table
spoons of cold water.- Let jelly, sugar
and hot water simmer tUl smooth,
add the cornstarch mixed with cold
water and stir till boiling. Cook
slowly from five to 10 minutes and
serve hot with dessert ,
Grape Jelly Tapioca Pudding
Three cups of boiling; water, on
half cup of tapioca, one teaspoon of
salt one-half .cup of -sugar, one half-
I glass of grape Jelly. Cook the tapioca

and water for 15 minutes. (If pearl
tapioca is used it must be soaked in
cold waterv for several hours, then
cooked in the boiling water till clear.)
Add the sugar, salt and jelly, stirring
till Jelly , is dissolved. Pour into a
glass dish And chill. Serve "cold with
Grap"hrbet : v -
One pint of grape juice, Juice of
one lemon, one cup of sugar, one tea
spoon of gelatine, one quart of hot
water. Soak the gelatine in three
tablespoons of cold water and dissolve
In the hot water, stir in the sugat
till dissolved, strain, cool and add the
grape juice. Freeze as usual for sher
bets. Some complain that glass-like cry
stals form in their preserved grape
products after they stand for a while.
These are tartaric acid crystals and

The South h as at its command a
variety of foodstuffs' which can be
used to;.excel!ent advantage as part
substitutes for. wheat flour In making
bread and biscuits. Housewives are
urged by specialists in the United
States department Of agriculture to
try some of these in their bread mak
ing. Not only will they, be able to
effect a saving in household expenses,
but by reducing in the South the con
sumption of wheat flour brought in
from other sections of the country,
they will be helping materially to
leave the railroads freer to transport
Among the wheat-flour substitutes
recommended by specialists for the
South are:
1. Banana, cassava, dasheen and
2. Rice and kaflr.
3. Soy beans and peanuts.
The substitutes - in group 1 should
be mixed With good white flour in the
proportion of 1 to 3. The " resulting
bread is excellent in every way. Only
a little less rich In protein than ordin
ary bread. It is much richer in min
erals and other important constituents.
Dried bananas should be used in mak
ing banana flour; the dasheen and
sweet potato mar be boiled and then
mixed with the flour, or the dried
product may be used.
Rice and kaflr should be mixed with
flour In the same proportion as the
substances in group 1 1 to 3. Bread
made from kaflr is somewhat darker
hn color but richer In protein and ash
than white bread. Brown rice flour
mixed with wheat is also somewhat
darker in color than white bread, but
it is as rich in protein and other food
constituents. The use of polished rice
does not add either to the appearance
of the bread; nor to its nutritive
Soy beans and peanuts- are extreme
ly rich in protein and fat Flour pre
pared from either of them, when mix
ed with white flour in the proportion
of 1 to 3, is well adapted to make a
nutritious bread. Bread made from
white - flour alone ' Contains less than
9 per cent protein and only about 02
per cent of salt-free ash, while bread
made from soy bean and wheat flour
contains about 14 per cent protein and
1 per cent salt-free. ash. Bread made
from peanut and wheat, flour mixture
contains about 12 per cent protein and
about 0.62 per cent salt-free aslu Thus

the juice carefully they can be dis
carded. In working with grapes it is
well to remember the disagreeable
stain they: leave and avoid making
stains if possible. " Covering- -taw-work

stroyed when the preserving la over,
does away with the need for scrub
bing. On fabrics, such as aprons,
table cloths , and napkins it Is well
to remember that soap "sets' the
stain. Hence it is best to rinse in
clear, cold water first If this does
not remove it, stretch the cloth con
taining the stain over a bowl and pour
hot water from the tea kettle through
It. Because of their Acid content, thd
cooking ot grapes should be done only
in glass, porcelain, granite or alum
inum ware. Never cook grapes in tin
or iron.
it is seen' that 'even when only 1 part
of these substitutes Is mixed with 3
parts of white 'flour the resultant
bread is about 40 to SO per cent rich

As each person, it is calculated, con
sumes about three-fourths of a barrel
of flour a year, and as the population
of the southern states is approximate
ly 30,000,000, it ia obvious that the gen
eral, use of these wheat-fkror substi
tutes would result In a marked reduc
tion in the' total quantity of wheat
flour consumed in the South. On the
basis of a total flour consumption in
the southern states of over 22,000,000
barrels, it has been estimated that if
the practise became universal the use
of 25 per cent of flour substitutes
grown in the South would save over
5,500,000 barrels of flour. As a mat
ter of fact, however, the saving would
be far greater than this, because a
mtich larger proportion of flour substi
tutes can be used in the preparation
of biscuits than in bread. In view of
this fact the total saving might
amount to 10,000,000 barrels of white
flour. All this flour, it must be re
membered, Is imported into the South
from other sections and the Consumer
must pay freight rates on It -

practises are followed, to have straw-,
