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

THIEVE.
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.

Hall. Louden. All rights reserved. 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

The biggest solvable problem in
the world today--one that is calling

T. M.-It would be almost impos

study their methods you may be
swindled out of the money you put

be taught by correspondence.
J. K.-I would advise you, as long
as you are in New York and anxious
to study photoplay writing, go to the
school at Columbia university.
Mrs. H. O'B.-Thank you for your

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
