Net Inserts for Canton Crepe
SUCH an admission to have to
make! But the fact is that we
haven't had time to investigate
and we haven't tried to do any
experimenting and we cannot
tell you precisely how to make the new
net inserts that are to trim the black
canton crepe dress shown in today's
sketch. The dress was one of the most
attractive models shown at a review a
fft♦ days ago and we wanted to pass
the idea along while it is still very new.
Any clever amateur can easily make
use of the idea, however, without dif
ficulty. The little inserts are filled in
with black silk net and In the dress in
question the top of the bodice was lined !
with pale, flesh-colored georgette to
giv# a uniform tone beneath the net.
I? you want to make a dress with 1
this sort of trimming the first thing to
do would be to cut out the material

Your Home and You
How often do you Include pork In
the bill of fare?
Perhaps not more than once a week—
perhaps not at all—but the fact re
mains that almost half the meat con
sumed in this country Is pork In one
form or another. Ham. bacon and
other cured pork products make up the
major part of the pork eaten, but there
are many delicious ways of serving
fresh pork, which In these days of per
fected refrigeration may be eaten all
the year round.
Experts in the Bureau of Home Eco
nomics have conducted experiments to
determine the best ways of cooking
fresh pork and here are some of the
conclusions they have drawn.
Pork should be cooked so that it is
done through without being dried out
at the outside.
Moderate cooking temperature is best
after the surface becomes seared, as
this insures the thorough cooking that
is necessary to make the meat whole
In roasting pork do not add water.
Large pieces such as fresh ham. shoul
ders, etc., may be cooked in an open
pan. fat side up. They should be basted
with the fat that cooks out. Chops
should first be seared, then covered, and
cooked at a moderate temperature.
When roasting fresh ham do not re
move the rind. It keeps the meat from
drying out. After roasting is com
pleted take meat from oven, remove the
rind and return to the oven to brown.
If you like you may rub the surface of
the fat beneath the rind with brown
sugar and stick it with cloves before
putting it back to brown.

What It May Reveal.
THIS appears to be the writing
of a very pleasant person, who
has many friends. She prob
ably enjoys attending social
functions, finding pleasure and
stimulation in meeting with people.
Apparently she is fitted to become a
leader in these groups, influencing and
directing others. She perhaps would
be most Interested In some organiza
tion that worked for a worthy cause,
rather than one formed solely for
The very long and slightly waving
t-bar suggests one who enjoys the
beauty of motion. She possibly de
lights In watching the wind In the
trees, or the ever-changing appearance
of the waves. This may be the ex
pression of a perhaps hidden desire to
draw. She seemingly* would like to
express her emotions in an artistic
way. In this case, she should investi
gate available art schools with the
thought of studying design.
In all probability she likes to read
a great deal. She perhops does not
spend her time on mediocre books, but
reads really worthwhile literature.
This would surely be evidenced in her
speech and mannerisms. Her friends
would probably greatly admire her
poise and ease of expression. Though
some of this may be inborn, much may
be the result of her reading.
Though she is not primarily a do
mestic type, she may enjoy experiment
ing with new and unusual food recipes
She perhaps delights in serving her
friends with foods she has prepared
herself. Visitors at her home probably
look forward in anticipation to her
unique refreshments. She perhaps col
lects recipes from every possible source
to use in her kitchen.

what you must do do not delay;
There's nothin* to be gained that way.
_—Robber the Rat.
Robber the rat is an outcast
and all his family are outcasts.
They always have been and
probably always will be. You
see. dreadful as it may seem,
! there appesrs to be no good in them.
They are hated by man and they are
just as much hated by their neighbors
I in fur and feathers. No one has a good
I word for them. They have no friends.
I This is their own fault. There is no one
I to blame but themselves. They live by
| stealing from others. They are dirty
in their habits, bold, ugly and savage.
So they have no friends, not even one.
1 Their own cousins hate them. And
they don’t care. No, sir. they don’t
care. _
They are quite sufficient unto them
selves. They are loyal to each other
and stick together and seem to delight
In making other people dislike them as
much as possible. So in time of trouble
they have only each other to turn to.
This has made them very cunning and
smart and, with their boldness and wil
lingness to live in places no one else
would think fit to live In, has enabled
them to do more mischief in the Great
World than all other folk together.
So when Robber discovered that Mr.
and Mrs. Monkey-face the Barn Owls
had a nest and family In Farmer
Brown's barn he knew that this was no
place for him and hia family to make
their home. It was too dangerous. They
must move and move at once. So he
called together the family, the chil
dren, the grandchildren, the aunts, the
uncles, the brothers, the sisters and the
cousins, and told them just what he had
found out and just what the danger
“If there were but one Owl here we
might stay by being extra careful," said
he. “We might even stay with two
Owls here. But with two Owls and a
big family of growing babies to be fed
this is no place for us. We must move
and do it without delay. Not only must
we leave this barn, but we must leave
this neighborhood. We must go where
these Owls are not likely to follow and
find us.”
‘‘Where Is there such a place?” de
manded a half-grown young Rat.
"You will have to follow me to find (
out,” replied Robber. “I hope you don't
think I have lived as long as I have
without traveling and picking up knowl
edge in my travels. This isn’t the first
time I have had to move. A wise Rat
will always know of a place to go If It
chance that he must leave hurriedly the
place where he is living. There is an
other barn almost as good as this, but
it is quite a long way from here.
“Won't such a journey be very dan
gerous?” inquired a timid young Rat.
"Yes, but not so dangerous as re
maining here,” replied Robber. "Of
course if you want to remain here it is
your privilege to do so. As for me and
Mrs. Robber and the children who are
at home, we are going to move.”
"When do we go?” asked another. %
“Today when the sun is brightest,-’
repnea Robber. I
At this there was a chorus of protects. ]
for the ways of the Rat are ways of
darkness and he fears the light lest he j
be seen. Robber grinned. “No Rat goes
out in daylight if he can help it unless
he knows that no enemy is about," said
he. “Therefore enemies are never on
the watch for us In the middle of the
day. Those Owls will be asleep then.
Reddy Fox will not be around. Much
as we dislike the light. It will be the
safest time for us to move.”
So at high noon, whm he had first
made sure that Flip the Terrier was
nowhere about. Robber the gray old Rat
led a strange procession out from the j
back of Farmer Brown’s barn. There

little Rats and mlddle-slaed Rats, all

Buckwheat Cake*.
Mix half a pint of buckwheat flour
with half a pint of white flour, one
level teaspoonful of baking soda, two
tablespoonfuls of brown sugar, one ta
blespoonful of salt and enough sour
cream or buttermilk to make a thin
batter. Buckwheat warms the blood,
hence is good to serve in cold weather.
I am convinced that, after profes
sional ornithologists, the first folk to
notice the signs of returning Spring arc
children, for It Is they who. hastening
along to school, cutting through wood
lots or vacant lots, see the first speed
well flowers opening their blue eyes and
hear the first of the freckle congrega
tions In full session.
A hundred grackles do not make a
Summer nor even a day In Spring, since
their migrations are chiefly inane Jun
ketings and their songs are merest gos
sip and rumor. Yet. even so. they make
us feel like Spring, and I'm grateful to
any creature that will do that along
about this time of year.
I can say this much for the grackles
as harbingers of the glad news—that
they are. so far as I have observed, the
first birds to burst into song of a vernal I
variety. Though the faithful bluebird
and robin remain with us. they do not
begin their mating aongs until some
mates are In progress. But grackle so
ciety Is not migratory. Like gypsies,
they knock about the countryside, thiev
ing. showing off their bright colors,
jabbering and confabbing.
Many country folk call grackle*
“blackbirds" hereabout, as I did myself
In childhood, when I was convinced
that they were the four and twenty
blackbirda who. when the pie was
opened, began to sing. Having heard
the European blackbird, who Is a spe
cies of thrush with a merry, oily song
like our robin's, but more beautiful, and
like our oriole's, but less beautiful. I
can say that there Is little resemblance
to our grackle, who 1s much nearer to
being a raven.
I am convinced that the grackle
could be taught to talk if he were
caged and his tongue clipped—provid
ing any one cared for such cruel sport.
His song Is certainly very close to
speech, as are the ravens' and jack
daws' songs and the starlings', indeed,
you will be reminded of the starlings.
who frequently make the newspaper
columns by reason of their resisting all
efforts to dislodge them from Pennsyl
vania avenue, when you hear the grac
kles in the woods. They seem to lore
wet days of esrty Spring and the low
woods along t: Potomac, where pools
of water star n the old leaves, the
first maples to n bloom and the flrzt
catkins hang tm n alder and hazel bush.
Alexander Wilson, that fine, old early
American ornithologist, records that on
January 30 at Roanoke. Va„ he en
countered a field where thousands of
grackles had accumulated. "Thetr notes
and screams resembled the sound of a
mighty cataract, but strangely attuned
Into a musical cadence which rote and
fell with the fluctuation of the breeze,
like the magic harp of Aeolus.”
Our grackles do a world of good in
eating up insects, maggots, eggs and all.
and to iro. at least, they seem very
handsome birds as one sees them hop
ping about through the softly glowing
red. yellow and green of the willow
twigs limbering up with fresh life, for
their metallic glints of green and pur
ple in black have something of the
beauty of peacock plumes and opals.
