Eat More Salads; Its A Patriotic Privilege Not Only.Are They Healthful and Ap petizing, but They Will Save ' Food Needed Abroad : WK have, .for year been urged to eat more salads, beoauM ' ,of their 'health giving quail tin. Theyiare whVesome, nt have learned,' 4nd are therefore worthy of much attention. Thl year thero la another reason why we should be especially, generous in our self-allotment of salads. They are a. patriotic food., " Tlls I our second lummw of war, and we ought to profit from- the mis takes wo made as well aa from our successes last summer. One of the) big slogans "of "the VVred Administration last summer, you remember; was "Hat the pernnahies.1 We did eat some of the perishables." But Just the same there were tales afloat of fruit that rotted on the ground and vegetables' tli.it wero wasted. , , Now this year we want to begin to think about the perishables early, and wo want to cat them all. Eating perishables instead of staples In the summer is almost like releasing a man for the front. It is storing up staples for next winter or for overseas use. , All this to show why salads may. be. considered as an especially patriotic form of food. Salads are mode largely of perishables or at least may be made largely of perishables In summer. Another thing: salads may be made In such a way as to iitlllto all sorts of leftovers. Salad Twice at Day ( We can't eat salad three times a day although in certain parts ot the country lettuce and sliced cucumbers or tomatoes for breakfast nro not un usual. But we can eat salad twice' h. day. And if wc do eat salad twice a day we are surely gaining a good hold on tlio food situation provided the salad Is wisely planned. If you can possibly diJ so, grow salad greens In your own garden. Even if you have no space or time for a war garden of large proportions you can cultivate a lettuce bed and a few green pepper plants, with perhaps one Vlant of tomatoes, and some parsley, onions and radishes. Try to get the lettuces, at any rate. Tou can plant seeds and eat the ten der leaves as. they grow to a suitable size without attempting to head them. Or you can buy- the little heads already started and transplant tlirtn. and grow them until they reach maturity. llemember that fruits as well as vegetables may bo used for summer salads. Cherries make delicious salad. tit or sour, red, white or black, they all be, used. , e pits should be removed, and the les may or may not bo filled with more cherry or with a bit' of nut. Dress the cherries with French dress in?, made of oil and lemon Juice, or oil and cherry Juice, If that Is tart. Lemon Juice is always better than vinegar for a fruit salad, for the fruit acid of the lemon seems to blend better with fruit than the acid of vinegar, espe cially of the inferior vinegar that we so often set nowadays harsh, sour and puckering. Peaches, too, cut In big chunks, served on lettuce, and dressed with Trench dressing, are good. Plums may bo used for salad too, and cubes of watermelon and muskmclon and later on early summer apples may all be concocted into delicious warm weather salads. When watercress Is plentiful that may be used for the salad green. Like fruit, it is better with lemon Juice in the dressing than with vinegar. War Time Dressing-. Of course, fats of nil kinds are on tho list of war foods that we are urged to save. However, wo Rre not urged to Rave fats at the expense of our health, and that means that we must eat a certain amount of them. The vegetable fats arc not so much wanted for transportation as the animal fats, like butter and lard, so we may, with s. free conscience, dress our salads lavishly with oil. If you like ollvo oil and can afford It at' Its present price there is no iraon why you should deny yourself French or mayonnalso dressings made HANDBAGS MADE AT HOME SURELY we are In tho midst of a great vogue for handbags. Wo see them not only overrunning tho counters of all tho shops, but wo fee them in tho hands of every smart woman. No woman who dresses well nowadays blinks at tho importance in her completo costumo of tho handbag she carries. It is not, of course, true that wo must have a handbag for each frock; but still we must have several hand-big-. And as a plea for the saving of leather Is coincident with a fashion for handbags of silk, satin and velvet, nny woman clever with the needle may fashion her own bags, and so increase the number that she may have for a given expenditure. There are two eneral ways of mak ing handbags; One Is with a draw string top; the other Is with a frame cf some sort, on which the fabric of the bar la hung. Tho shops Mil now many tops to which the tag may be easily attached. There arc rings of various sorts and sizes, frem the small rings of silver. Just large snouth to slip easily over the haml, to the very large rings of bone or tortoles. that are almost large enough tor Knitting bags. 'Ami accord In to the else of the ring- may the -fabric be, chosen. A heavy but soft brocade may be used with the small liver rings and a velvet mlth tfce larger op.". V " with It. However, if you wish to you cun use some of the other vegetable oils peanut oil is much cheaper, and Is much liked by many persons who until lately had thought olive oil was the only kind they would ever uso. And there are wajfs of making may onnaise dressing diluted with a foun dation sauce of some sort. A good white Rauce or drawn butter sauce tnay be used. And, too, egg whites .beaten very stiff may be added to fin ished mayonnaise to Increase it bulk. A little more seasoning must of course be' used when any of these methods Of increasing the bulk of the dressing Plain garden lettuce can be served three- pr four times a week for din ner wltTfoUtitoo much monotony if you learn., to vary the French dress ing. A tablespoonful of tomato catsup added to half a cup of dressing makes a pleasant variation. t Sometimes use vinegar of one kind and sometimes use vinegar of an other white nnd "brown, wine and cider, with sometimes a dash ot tarragon.- You can, too, if you like them, make flavored vinegars by steeping, for Instance, some chives in one little bottle of vinegar, some capers In an other some minced parsley or mint in another. These flavored vinegars may then bo used with delicious results in making French dressing. Chopped Vegetables Help. ?Tou can alsovary the plain lettuce salad by adding' chopped vegetables of various sorts. Chopped radishes sprinkled over the lettuce leaves the radishes uusklnned, so that they have their bright red and white coloring may be used. Chopped green pepper or chopped onion and pepper, chopped cabbage, chopped parsley or chopped cucumber may all be used with French dressing with very good results. Cheese salads may be considered highly economical, and the combina tion of salad greens, cheese nnd some sort of war bread makes a highly nu tritious and satisfying lunch. One good cheese salad Is made ot freshly grated American cheese sprinkled gen erousy over crisp lettuce, well mixed with French dressing containing a lib eral addition of paprika. Pot cheese and cottage cheese, which Mill skimmed milk and that Is one thing we are urged to do, you know and sour milk as well, can be fash ioned into many delectable salads. Little pats or cakes' of the cheese, sprinkled with paprika, may be served on lettuce leaves, with French dress ing, or the cheese may be crumbled over the lettuce. One vegctnblo combination salad n called Porto Rico salad, but it might Just as well be named war garden salad. Romaine lettuco is called for, but any lettuce will do. Lino a vegetable dish with the let tuco and fill the middle of the bowl with sliced green ptppers In rings, of course sliced tomatoes, sliced cucum bers and sliced onions. Onion Juice or a clove of garlic rubbed on the bottom of the bowl may be substituted for the sliced onion. .A good pepper salad consists of diced green pepper and celery mixed with mayonnaise and served in tiny lettuce cups. Sweet red pepper may of course be substituted for the green, and tho color of the red pepper is of course at tractive. Est for Luncheon. Now that eggs are plentiful egg salad forms one of the best of the substantial luncheon salads. One good one is made of hard boiled eggs remember to cook the eggs Just below the boiling point for half an hour to have them digestible cut in half and laid on slices of tomato or lettuce leaves. Around each slice of tomato and half of egg liy a ring of sweet green pepper, mart simply by washing and slicing the pepper. Another good egg salad Is made of hulves of egg whites from which the yolks have been removed, filled with diced beets and peas nnd mixed with mayonnaise. Each egg half is propped up in lettuce leaves nnd the egg yolks are crumbled over tho whole salad. tr.tlon tortoise. Thesa may be bad for ns little as $2. Thoy nro fitted with llttlo clamp closings, and with rings through which a cord or ribbon handle .may be slipped. Frames of a similar sort may be had In black and whlto combination, and theeo are really striking with black silk or velvet as tho fabric from which they aro made. Another sort of frame consists of two whalebones as wide as the top of the bag. Tho fabric is shirred to these bones, and then they are covered with a bias band of silk. They spring open, of course, when you wish to get Into the bag. ' If desired, a couple . of bill and socket fasteners may be used for greater security. And cords for handles finish 'this bag. Bilk cord in. many colors and different thicknesses may bo bought by the yard, and tills Is th most satisfactory handle. It la also possible to get gilt and silver cords, und with velvet bags especially these ere attractive. Tassels are sometimes used to finish tha bottoms of the bags. Probably the newest tassel Is the one trimmed with the little colored wooden beads strung on the silk strands or tne laasei. Th colors usually crude, in green blue, yellow and red are nevertheless Interesting against the black or blue ot the tassel..Chenl!le tassels of double loops of chenille are anomer ui tah. for the bag of velvet, ami gilt and over cord are used where rope hasslee of -gilt or ellver-ars used. FRAMES O' F every man in camp or trench there are probably several pho tographs some placo in this wide land. And It has become an In teresting task ot the shopkeepers to provide appropriate, frames for these pictures. So if you have a photograph of a man in tho service you need have no difficulty In getting a frame to suit it. There aro tiny frames of locket like proportions that may be carried about and there are big frames for the wall or table. In between, ot course, there are frames of all sizes. To begin with the smallest frame. there are little gold lockets to be worn on a chain about the neck or like a wrist wntch on a band of ribbon. These are made of gold or silver, and are embellished with .u little red star In a small white field of enamel. Other Bmull picture frames are em bellished with a star, and double n 1 i. -Hi RENAISSANCE PERIOD IN GREENWICH By HARRIET SISSON GILLESPIE. EX the Renaissance of reenwlch Village is com plete, homo folks who long for their own vine nnd fig tree, jilus a fireplace that burns, may satisfy their domestic yearnings, for large numbers of old houses of Colonial design In this section are rapidly being converted Into moaem apartments In which no old time comfort Is lacking. To bo sure, one's own vine may be nothing more than the veriest scrap of a window box, or at most a pocket edition of n roof garden, and the fig tree a private bush In a lattice en closed yard no bigger than a minute. but however diminutive they are re plete with sentiment nnd suggestion, enveloped In a glamour of romance that comes from nothing so much as tho mere sense of ownership. And over all Individuality reigns su preme. In this effort ut self-expression li seen the revolt of tho Man hattan flat dweller against tho sway of Janitor and landlord. He hies him self to Greenwich Village and appro priates n chimney placo all his own. The Greenwich villager may pulnt tho front of his house In blzurro col ors, take his tea In a coal cellar and entertain his friends on tho floor of an nttlc os'ho revels in the untrammelled freedom of his new earthly paradise, but, If you will notice, his eccentrici ties begin and end with home, lie no longer tnkes the shadow for the sub stance, pinning his faith to a gas log and the vagrant promises of a casual dependent, but is monarch of his own domain, drawing inspiration from his own wood lire when und how he pleases. Cost of Arms for Village. Tho arms of Greenwich Village should be a back log sejant, a pair of nndlrons rampant, with a trivet for u crest, for the open fire has become a religion In tho village. H Is tho key to the problem of reconstruction nnd the most insignificant of quarters txinsts its grute, infinitesimal though It may be, in the less fashionable sec tions, but of Colonial dimensions in tho more cxcluslvo environs of the avenue. But In all these rehabilitated grates of halt a century ago the Important point to the tenants Is that they ran enjoy their cheering warmth as fancy dictates, not as some Irascible Janitor arbitrates. Therein lies the difference between living in tho Village or "on the upper West Bide." For tho new Greenwich Village, like its predecessor, is built on the rock of home comfort, and It Is tho aim of tho residents to preserve this domestic Atmosphere where It already exists, or to create It where none was before. It was somo seven years ago that a certain artist "discovered" Greenwich Village and broke with traditions to go there and live, A train of other homesick folk followed and ensconced themselves In quarters possessing the advantage of comfort as well as econ omy. Rut they took the last avail able vantage point, so when another influx of home seekers arrived they found a dearth of accommodations and tho migration received a distinct set back. Those who lacked the persistence ot their associates gave up tho search and returned to their old haunts, dis FOR YOUR SOLDIER'S PHOTOGRAPH frames show two enamelled Rtars, pre sumably for the pictures of two sons or brothers In camp or trenches. Tho most interesting frame Is the one that is made for each arm of the service a frame of khaki or of metal with n band next the glass of the colors that indicate the service. These frames may be had in various sizes. The easel frame is always best liked by some women. And that, with doors that fold over the plcturo enthroned when it in not wished to show It, is made with khaki cover. Of course, there are many other frames of this type without any military suggestion thut are quite as appropriate for tho soldier's picture. Hand carved Italian frames, whether in dull finish of the natural wood or in tho soft painted colors that we often wo in these frames, arc always suit able setting for any photograph. For the soldier there are many small frames that may be folded into a com- heartened and discouraged. Others more diligent than the rest managed to cling somehow to the fringe of the enchanted district. Just recently cer tain enterprising folk took up the task of providing moro places In which to live, with the result that a new Green wich Village Is springing up before your eyes. Best of nil, the reconstruc tion is based on the needs of home folks, not on tho flights of the builder's fancy. Itpclalniliiar the Old Houses. To stem the tide ot disintegration that threatened the Village us a placo to live In" was no oasy task. But one by one the old houses of tho neighbor hood wero snatched back from oblivion and reinvested with much of their old time flavor. So now It i possible to secure a room In nn old fashioned bouse with n grate of nncient design for (25 a month, or to enjoy the princely delight of n duplex apartment, bidden demurely behind a row of street dwell ings, for the ridiculous sum of $53 a month. Invested with a plcturesqueness quite foreign to Its source, tho new Greenwich Village enjoys a character all Its own. Lying on the edgo nf Lit tle Italy, it Just naturally borrowed something of the Latin's love of color, tho kaleidoscopic effect of which is highly stimulating to ces grown weary of the gray monotony of city streets. To tho French Influence Is duo tho extensive use of that adorable shade known as Trianon green, ami n tribute to pre-Hevolutlanary fancies is tho fashion for Colonial yellow. In tho architectural anomalies that have nrisen in responso to tho vil lagers' domestic needs aro hints of tho art ot many countries. In u stuccoed wall embellished with wrought Iron decorations Is seen a suggestion of Spanish Mission; in tho Gothic details superimposed on a modest Dutch dwell ing the English taste. But whatever tho adaptation, there runs through It u II. like the warp nnd woof of n hand woven design, that love of homo that was brought over when the first Dutch settlers from Holland settled New Am sterdam. One of (be Masterpiece. Theso old bouses have been re modelled with such rare Judgment and exquisite taste that none ut tho homo charm Is lacking. Take tho lovely Colonial house In West Twelfth street, for example. Could anything bo more delightful than Its white hooded doorway upheld by slender pil lars, its picturesque fan nnd sldn light? or the Colonial yellow facade, with its blue-green blinds and gnarled wistaria vine clambering over tho porch and framing tho windows? To call such a house home, to enter thnt hospitable portico nnd find that tho Illusion lusts Is an experienco as strange to tho typical Manhattnnite as It Is delightful. The bouse Is a flno typo of city dwelling, built about 1830, nnd though long unoccupied, Is well pieserved. H contains nil the rare features common to bouses of tho period,' nnd such decorative details as tall pier glut-set richly framed In gold, mantels of Carrara marble elabor ately carved, cornices and moulding hand modelled ull of which havo been retained to add their own Individual note to the remodelled dwelling. pact rpace and carried in the pocket. These come In gold and silver, and they come also covered with khaki. And if you hove a soldier boy you want one of these folding frames too, so that whenever you go away from home you may carry your soldier's picture with you. Wo all of us look on the photograph worn conspicuously on a locket chain or breastpin with a shudder of horror. Usua'ly It is a very poor photograph. But that Is what causes the shudder. And yet we can understand the senti ment that makes the fond mother, wife or flnnceo weor her Sammy's pic ture It: such n prominent position. The closed or concealed locket solves the problem for tho woman with more Tttllt Patriotic frames for soldier faces, lockets for neck chain or bracelet, and trench comforts com bined with souvenirs for the soldier himself. The old high stoop was torn away to start with and the area trans formed into n picturesque doorway, reached by a herringbone brick walk and flanked by high white settles. It was the aim of the designer to re tain the home atmosphere, nnd, bo it said to his credit, from the time one steps beneath tho white panelled door, way until the top apartment Is reached, not n false note Is struck. The old brass knockers on the doors with. In somo Instances, quaint side lights, the candelabra with wind shield and girandoles standing in the niches on the stnlrs might well have come from an ancestral home In New Kngland. With ono exception, each floor holds two apartments, which run In prlrcs from $50 for two rooms, bath and kitchenette on tho ground floor up to $2,000 for nn entire floor through. , Special Atlracllnat for All. The natural attractions of tho bouse havo been divided Impartially. If a front suite rejoiced In an antique man tel of rare design the corresponding apartment In the rear was uwurded n roof garden of unusual scope. In this particular Instance the toot extension used for the purpoio occupied n higher level than the floor of the living room. To obviate tho dlfliculty a small btnlr- way was built. Through French windows access Is had to tho outdoor living room, which, furnished with wicker under gay striped awnings, comprises u feature such as the most fortunate of city folks might envy. If the front room Is provided with ono fireplace of Tudor design, the rear rejoices In two of old fashioned brick construction, the result of tho two rooms being thrown together. The lucky occupant of what win once the kitchen Is thus able to enjoy the un usual experience of toasting her toes hefoie a lire In the original PtiUh fire place adjoining the historic bake oven. To the typical djed In tho wool flat dweller nothing Is more appealing than a duplex apartment. To enjoy the freedom of two floors Is a Joy known only to those who linve been con demned to the use of ono. While such an Ideal arrangement ln't common, yet there nre prizes of this sort to be found In tho Village, If you search diligently for them. In Washington place, for example, which Is one of tho recent streets to come under tho spell of the rejirvena tor, n particularly charming model Is to bo seen. The pedestrian would have been attracted to this house by no external beauty of fucado, for It has nothing to recommend It except tho cosiness peculiar to tho type, which followed the quaint dormered period and preceded by some years the niid-Vlctorlau epoch when not only architecture, but fashions generally lupsed In artistic quality, It Is only when after casually en tering the American basement you come upon a pleturenquo door at the far cud of the passage decorated with an old brass knocker thut a new ele ment of Interest Is aroused. Tho door opens to a tiny entry, to the right of which is n pocket edition of a yard. .Straight ahead is tho studio proper. Beside It a spiral stairway runs to some pleasant place aloft. The studio, the width of the house, discriminating tasto. Bho may wear her soldier's picture always, yet in so Inconspicuous a manner that no one need know it. When she wants to see it all she need do Is to snap open the locket ubout her neck or ut her wrist. Tet when this Is closed there Is no suggestion, save the tiny enamelled star, ot Its content's. It was the French soldier who first wore tho wrist locket, and since he found out Its value it has gained a wider nnd wider placo In our liking. It proves perhaps the most conven ient frame for the small plcturo of the soldier that one likes to have always about. Ono little novelty frame is made of gunmutal. It really amounts to a large locket and can bo worn about tho nock, or by means of a little brace thaj can be pushed out In the back it can bu set up on tho dressing table or desk. For thn soldier who smokes there Is a very attractive combination cigarette case and pocket picture frame com bined. It also has accommodations for bills and change and is withal not In tho least too cumbersome to slip Into any soldier's pocket. And speaking of cigarette cases, Ctr 1 t w OU has a high north light, n spacious brick fireplace and In an "L," quite hidden from view, n handy little kit chenette. It Is tho mezzanine floor, however, that most appeals to the feminine mind. When, as In this case. It include.' a regular Borneo nnd Juliet balcony, with casement windows either side, -the fascination Is redoubled. A tiurtlt-u 11 el rent. There are other beauties In connec tion with this compact little house. At tho rear the studio door gives nccess to a garden, all enclosed In trim, green lattice. Tall box trees lend a smart air it no shade, and In summer awn ings will bo so hung as to utilize the spiu'o for an al fresco dining room, or as a retreat where the artist tenant may commune with nature.

Its many architectural beauties have been letalued. Among the suggestions of old time elegance bat go to make the house popular are quaint pilasters, low arched partitions, carved cornices, mammoth fireplaces and solid mahogany doors, At the rear of this house, but facing on another street. Is a Colonial duplex studio apartment of three looms, bath anil kitchenette. On Fourth street another Colonial facade catches the eye and In approaching It Its cvl iiiices of past grandeur become np p.ircnt.

IImiiii- of .Irlllietle JVIcliol. Miss Jeanette Nichols, the artist, now owns the house and lias restored It to much of Its old time beauty. The floors have been dlvldel to make two apartments on each, which rout from $75 to J100. In the days when this house was built firewood was plenty, for the chimneys are both wide and deep, Now, with wood scarce and high, the old fashioned llrep,ues arc still alluring, nnd It Is pretty safe to say that the tenant who has one In her apartment will somehow get the wood for It, even though she must forego lKlh luxuries and necessaries to Co It. The back yard of this house has a ycret, n most delightful one, which you may share If you like. Tho area hall runs straight through to the rear and you emerge Into a pretty yard. Through the centre of It n neat gravel path leads to tho most adorable llttlo hniisn Imaginable. A really, truly house, with green trellises silhouetted against a yellow background! It might have been a stable long ago, but It never was. It Is Just a low stone building, erected by somo by gone tenant to house a fad. Now it h a complete duplex apartment, where a bachelor girl may live quite by her self without fear. For Isn t she bar ricaded front nnd liack by rows of closely built street dwellings? Originally It was ono largo room, Now tho space Is divided Into a main floor and u mezzanine balcony, to i there Is ono that hasn't anything to do with a picture frame that is sure to delight the man in camp or trenches who smokes. It ran be opened en tirely with one hand; In fact, It can be managed entirely with the left hand.

Then with a simple movement, the case cat be closed, replaced In the pocket, nm r well, any man who smokes knows how to light his cigarette with a single hand. And with all plcturo frames on dressing tables, desks nnd all these lockets worn by devoted mothers, wives, fiancees and sisters, what a rush thero has been to the photogra pher's. And for every man thnt gives his picture there must bo a girl giving her picture In return. And Sammy's mother, too, who has been putting off having her picture taken every year since some time before Sammy was born, has had to put on her best frock and a smiling face though her heart may be heavv enough and go forth to havo her picture taken, too.

And then thero Is Grove street, a name with which to conjure, In Greenwich Village. It was about that triangular little square known us Christopher i'aik that tho now Greenwich Village was born. It was there one's atten tion was first caught by tantalizing glimpses of old fanlight and .side lights, quaint dormers and stucco facades. A .'etv Apartment lu Cliarueter. Not n few of these adornments have been shorn to make room for a modern apartment. But what was lost is con tained, In a slightly different guise, in tho new building, where one can get small apartments "with u fireplace that burns" for a reasonable sum. It's facade is tapestry brick with wrought Iron balconies on each floor, window boxes and i oof gardens and a tearoom In tho basement. It may be that Greenwich Village will become the centre of a coopera tive colony, for two oung women at hast have stalled houses ulon- this line. Miss Helen Todd, sulTrage speaker, hai taken three floor1 of n quaint house in Grovn street and lilited her rooms to congenial spirits.

Tho Amerloan women aro taking it up slowly, so It Is well to advise them that green is a peculiarly good color for tho Amer ican summer. There are sclentlstp who believe that colors have an effect upon tho health and temperature of tho "body and tho depression or cnllvenment of the mind. Nnturo loads the way in providing green for tho summer us n relief to the eyes and tho nerves, so, knowing that, it Is well that the wom en in America should follow the lead of tha house of Callot and mako green a constant companion from now until October. ' Jade green is worn in the evening nnd Is combined with black lace or lullc. Tho fnshlon of cutting a neck scarf In ono with the back or front of a coat or cape has grown In popularity. It Is an eccentricity which many wom en do not like. However, It takes tho place of any other kind of neckpiece, and it envelops the chin In the man ner that has become a general fashion. Thero is a scarf of tulle attached to the hat which winds around the chin and hangs at the back, or there is a thin scaif attached to tho coat. If you nie fashionable ou take 'your choice between the two, or you use one forhe morning and one for the moro formil afternoon hours. One thing seems to be certain; that whether tho blouse is cut high or low at the neck, some extra material mut bo thrown around the neck and chin to take away the appearance of being decollete In tho street. Thero Is no strong contrast this spring between the decollctagc for tho street and that for the house. Tho neck is wrapped with a scarf or veil when one is in tho open air, and when this appendage Is removed In tho house It discloses to the observer thnt the blouse or bodice Is cut In the deep est squat e that women have wurn In a centur ; that Is, deep for a day gown. Women are seen at lunch at hotels in gowns that nio cut exactly llko those worn in our Colonial days. Thero Is not even a line of white to keep tho clotli from resting agninst tho flesh. The effect is staitllng, but It Is new. Tho house qf I'aquln Invented a bed room ucgligeu that was cut llko a medla'val garment with square sleeves.

Tho war workers who brought it ovir from l'.iris as a novelty havo found that It Is already copied In our shops and sold at a third tho price pild for It at the bouse of Riquln.
