HOUSEWIVES -DAILY ECONOMY CALENDAR By FRANCES MARSHAL. Tarts. There Is an interesting history behind tarts and pies and patties. and it Is this: There was a time, In the middle age, when dishes were scarce. Yet pie crust was plentiful. Behold, therefore, the tart shell, the patty case, and the pie. For these crust shells held all sorts of food and after the more or less liquid con tents. which otherwise must have been served on plates or saucers, had been eaten. the crust container could Itself be turned to account as food. In other words, after eating up what was on the plate, one atathe plate. It was In France, especIally, where tarts-tourte Is the French for tart-took the place of dishes. And France Is per haps the master of pastry that she Is to day because for so long a tIme her cooks had to devIse tourtes of Interest enough to make their eaters oblIvIous to the lack of dlshes. There are many sorts of delicious tarts to make. One, a recipe for which has been requested. Is made by rolling out geod puff paste very thin. Put a thIn sheet of the paste on a bakIng tIn and spread over it apricot jam. green gage .lam, raspberry jam or any other jam. Or else spread with a cooked lemon eream-llke that used for filling plea. but cooked thIek In a double boiler. Cover with a thIn sheet of paste, and mark with a knife Into oblongs. Press the edges together and bake about half an hour or a lIttle leas. FIve mInutes be fore It Is done, remove from the oven and spread with the whIte of an egg and sprinkle with granulated sugar. When brown remov~e from oven and cut. The strips should be about two Inches wide and three long. pyramId shape. For this cut a square of paste seven Inches wIde. Make other squares each half an Inch smaller than the last. untIl the -hast square Is only two Inches.. Bake light brown. When cool, spread tha largest wIth preuerveg1 tawberries, apricot jam, orange marmna lade, or any other rich pr'eserve or janm, and place over It tge next square.

When Diogene asonce visited by Alexander the Great while in his tub, and was asked what he requested from the great monarch, he said. "I have nothing to ask but that you step aside, that you may not, by inter cepting the sunshine. take from me what you cannot give me." Right here seems the basis of Oll intercourse between man and man: Do not deprive another of that which you cannot give, . On the Turnpile of Time we keep constantly moving in one direction. We cannot stop, we cannot falter, we cannot lag if we would-the ibro cession is always pointed ahead, and no moment that slips by us can ever be recalled. Consequently the wickedest thief is the Innocent Thief who intrudes uom us in our day's occupation. He is an intruder who ravages us who stops in for "just a little chat" and steals away the hours he cannot repay. We cannot "prosecute" him-dear nP- to have the good-will of others we must Indulge, them in this "high way daylight hold-up." And. doubtless, they indulge us-for we all could be indicted on the same charge. There is a deep moral obligation to treat another's time even more care fully than you would his property. The dne he can safeguard against you; the other he cannot. Heglays it open-and there it lies for you to help yourself. Give the subject some thought and remember, it's not so much a mat ter of honesty as it is of considera tion. (Cops izht, 19163 OUR SOULS 0 Copyrigbt. 1014, by The McClure Newe Hall. Louden. All rights reserved. In ratomi of this artiele in whole or In by special arrsurement with TI N the putting on of "Poor Little Peppina," we needed several hun dred types, men, women and children. A tour was made of the Italian quarters and we gathered in a group of women who eagerly left their flower-making-at which they earned the meager pittance of thirty to sixty cents a day-and their trousers and coat finishing-at from forty to fifty cents a day-to come to the studio to work for $2.50. For a day or two, all went well, and, as our chief sub-title writer might say, with a flourish of his pen, "Life was one grand, sweet song," barring the few brainstorms they caused our poor, overworked director. And then I noticed that the dark skinned daughters of Italy were eye ing me with something distinctly per sonal in their regard-something that was a mixture of awe, envy, admira tion-though the latter was not wholly flattering-and a growing de termination. What this determina tion meant I was shortly to learn. for after a perfect babel of oratory, during which heads and elbows wagged as industriously as tongues, one of the women, her expression now wholly a "do-or-die" one, ap proached me and said, "You work-a here all-a-da-time, no?" I turned this over in my niind and decided that I could safely say, with complete truthfulness that I did 'all-a-da-time!" My answer seemed to be the right one, for she gave a confirming nod to her compatriots, and then returned to the charge. "We getta da two fift' a day," she stated. I smiled a delighted congratulation, For many companies paid a dollar less, but this time I had evidently lisappointed her. In the attitude of a typical screen heavy she de manded: "Soambody-ecz tal me you getta :a ten doll' a day-no?" Her conviction was evidently so strong on this point that I was too Frightened to do anything but stare at her appealingly. Taking this to be a confession of guilt, she went unhesitatingly back to her companions and joined them in an apparently soul-rending criticism of rny inefficiency. Above the languages of the tower of Babel, I could hear the words "ten dolla'" passed from :me to the other, and I had visions of them assaulting the rilanager's of Ice and demanding that my salary be reduced to "five dolla'" or per iaps to even "two-fift'."~ I had argued backward, howevei-, for the lady again advanced, to prove that she had become thoroughly imbued with the spirit of the "land of the Free." She informed me. "We talla da boss! We strike-you tetta ten dola'-we getta da two sit'. No fair! WVe worka mooch :oarda dia you. We striker'" SAnd off' they marched, tongues ened cream and place the "'life preserver" on it. Flit the center with a pile of fresh strawberries and serve with whipped cream.. Other tarts are made by lining muffin tins with paste arid baking it brown. Fltl these shells with jam or jelly or pre serves 'and, if desired, cover with a me ringue and brown in the oven.

They often forget that we girls all started with the lowest ebb of the tide and that it was by our own efforts we reached our present positions of power and promise. The biggest solvable problem in the world today--one that is calling for the best thought of the biggest brains-is this absorbing question of work and pay. Pondering upon it, I have often felt, while something was being thought out by the brains and fought out by the workers, it might ease things a bit if we just draw a picture of the world scheme-of work to be done to keep things go ing, and all of us helping-not stop ping the fight for our souls' life in the midst of the grind, but feeding our souls with that great motto which is blazoned on the arms of the Prince of Wals-"Ich Dein" "I serve!"

Little Isabel. the child of a friend of mine, went home from school one day last week with a very poor report of her standing in menta& arithmetic. "ilow In this. Isabel" her father asked. "YOur marks in arithmetic are so low. %et you seem to know all the sums when we go over your lessons together." "Yes, I know, father," Isabel repled, "I do know them. but it's this way: Teacher asks me how many apples are four apples and three apples, and says I must do it muentallv. I can see four apples and the three little marks beside them and I know it's seven apples. but she wants it mentally and so I tell her it's five apples The father thought it out and in telling me about it said he had concluded that the child must have had some hazy idea that "mentallY' implied something op nlsfd to,attutl fat, end so. in trying to please her teacher and give the answer she supposed was wanted little Isabel failed rep atedly in a study in which she naturaly acelled. I wonder how many of our mothers| have met this same problem in their child training' Perhaps if we all had the good sense of this fattIer and tried to get the child's explanation of the failure. we. too. might have discovered the reason for a badly learned lesson in time to make a good scholar instead of a poor one out of our child. Children have a natural desire to please those about kthem; they instinctively look for the nod and the smile of approval in all they do, and so. if teacher or parent wvants the thing "mentally." why. "mentally" they will give it. though they know it1s seven Instead of five! The desire of theihilld for the approval of parent and teacher is our greatest obstacle to success in training our chil dren. We can arm ourselves againsti perversity; slowness and stupidty are at least partly overcome by patience; but we are exceptionally wise mothers if we can refrain from making ourselves the model for the child that tries to please us in all things. I believe we mothers make no more frequent mistake than this in rearing our I children. Prone to think ourselves per feet. we believe the way we do things is the only way to do them. Our methods of keeping house, of making beds and sweeping rooms are just a little better than the methods followed by the other women we know; there are no church and no political belief so right as our ow n. and so those are the particular patterns we lay down for our children to mold themselves by. We forget that our point of view is not the only one in the wor.i: Naturally, the child that tries the iard est to please Is the one that is stamp ed most deeply with our peculiarities. thtdevelops less along its own orig nllne.Instead of trying to turn out new and improved kinds of hu man beings, we are so satisfied with ourselves that we are Aquite content to go on, year after year. repeating our own old and worn-omut type in the young we are bringing up to carry on the world's work when our hands shall lay It down. - Now don't you thlnk we would be more sensible mothers if we did not try to make our children into little wooden replicas of ourselev&' If we didn't go on. generation after genera tion. repeating the sanme old mistakes and failures, pruning away every shoot of originalIty from their young mInds and training them all alike into monotonous box borders of humanity? Many mothers today, I ant glad to see, are beginning to realize that the children haven't had a fair chance In the past. They feel that the "do-it because-I-say-so" edict that has hItherto been,almost the only rule of conduct given the chIld is all wrong. Ad that repression, not expressionj has been the natuiral result of suchl training. The great educators of thel day are coming to our rescue.
