With Rhubarb Plentiful in the Market, Get Out the Preserving Kettle,
• .. JL — __ A - - - --- . First Batch of Sweets For the Jam Cupboard May Be Attended to Now i Jams, Conserves and Marmalades Made of the Rosy Fruit Will Be Welcomed Later in the Season. BY BETSY CASWELL. ITH the heaps of rosy-hued rhubarb glowing on every side in the markets, it would seem that this is a good time to put up those jars of rhu barb conserve and jam and marmalade that will be so welcome later on when the fresh fruit has made its final bow of the season. Also, from now on there will be new fruits com ing in every day for your preserv ing kettle—better to get the first lot out of the way in plenty of time and leave the field clear for the other delicacies! „ c„wen Rhubarb's tangy flavor combines particularly well with other fruits—notably pineapple, raspberries and strawberries. The strawberries are still plentiful here, and the raspberries are coming in frequently Just now. So get out the kettles and the jars and the rest of the equipment, and tackle the pres ent fruit supply for future use! RHUBARB AND PINEAPPLE CONSERVE. 1 large pineapple 4 cups diced rhubarb 1 lemon (juice) 8 cups sugar 2 oranges, grated rind, juice and pulp 1 cup pecans, chopped Cut the edible part of the pineapple into cubes, and add the diced rhu barb, the lemon juice, sugar, orange rind, juice and pulp. Stir Ingredi ents thoroughly, and let stand over night. In the morning add the rai sins, and let cook until thickened. Add the nut meats, which have been blanched and chopped, and pour mix ture into sterilized glasses. When cool, cover with paraffin. RHUBARB AND STRAWBERRY CONSERVE 2 cups diced rhubarb 4 cups strawberries 1 cup seeded raisins 2 oranges, grated rind and pulp 3 cups sugar 'j cup blanched and chopped wal nut meats Put the rhubarb, orange rind and pulp, and raisins in a kettle with the sugar, and let stand all night. In the morning add the washed and hulled strawberries. Simmer slowly for half an hour after the boiling begins, stir ring frequently. When thick, remove from stove, add the nuts, pour into sterilized glasses, and when cool, cover with paraffin. RHUBARB MARMALADE. 1 pound rhubarb 1 pound or 2’,i cups sugar 1 lemon. Peel the lemon very thin, being careful not to get any of the white rind. Extract the juice. Cut the rhubarb in small pieces, add to it the yellow rind of the lemon, and the sugar. Let this mixture stand over- ! night, then add the lemon juice, and cook slowly for 45 minutes. Stir often, pour into sterilized glasses, and cover with paraffin when cool. RHUBARB JAM. 3 pounds rhubarb 2 pounds sugar % cup water 3 oranges, rind and juice. Wash and peel the rhubarb; dice. Add the sugar and the water, grate the rind of the oranges and add to the rhubarb. Add the orange juice and cook for 30 minutes, stirring oc casionally. When thickened pour into sterilized glasses, and seal with paraf fin when cool. RHUBARB AND RASPBERRY JAM 3 cups rhubarb. 4 cups sugar. 3 cups ripe raspberries. Pick over the raspberries, wash well, mash and cook quickly until soft.! Strain and set the juice aside. Trim off the hard ends of the rhubarb, i wash and, without peeling, cut into dice or cubes. Mix the fruit with the sugar and let stand for several hours. Cook gently in preserving kettle until clear and thick, stirring occasionally. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. And there is the first batch for your preserve closet—or "jam cupboard," , as it used to be called in a more pic turesque era! Also, I have several I leaflets giving directions for canning, preserving and jellymaking (the latter directions include those for pectin and without) which I would be very glad to mail you if you will write to me and inclose a stamped, self-addressed | envelope in which the leaflets caa be sent. ■ Dorothy Dix Says No Matter What People Say to the Con trary, This Is Still a Man’s World. MARY PICKFORD says this is a woman’s world. Maybe so for Mary, who has had all the prize packages in life handed to her on a silver salver, but no one can honestly maintain that women as a whole get an equal deal with men. Even in creation woman ; was an after-thought and didn't ar- ! rive until after man had been given the best of everything. Heaven knows life is a rocky road ; to travel for both men and women, j but it is ten times steeper, stonier and j thornier for women than it is for men. To begin with. Nature makes woman of frailer physique than man. It gives her less strength and more nerves, makes her subject to more ailments and diseases, and then it; chucks her out into the world to do ! the hardest jobs on earth and endure the greatest suffering. Custom comes along and adds a few other handi caps in the way of conventions and clothes, so that there isn’t a thing that a woman ever does, from running for Congress to going upstairs with a baby in her arms with the feeding bottle in her hand and her skirts held between her teeth, that isn’t harder to do just because she is a woman. Oh, it is a man’s world where men get all the breaks. Just begin at the beginning. Take boys and girls at the playtime of life. Both sexes are crazy for good times. The boy can go out and hunt up his amusement. The girl must stay put and hope and pray that some lad will condescend to date her. a a a a BOY is ever called upon to go ^ through the martyrdom of being a wallflower. No boy ever knows the shame and humiliation that the girl endures who sits on the sidelines and sees her hostess dragging some unwill ing youth up to dance with her. A boy may be pudgy and red-headed, freckle-faced and as homely as the proverbial mud fence, but if he is intelligent, well-mannered and good company the girls are flattered at his attentions. But let a girl be fat, homely and physically unattractive and wild horses couldn’t drag any youth into stepping out with her. Oh, It is a man’s world. Consider marriage. It is only men who are able to pick and choose their mates and get what they want, Instead of taking what they can get. All the say-so that a woman has about the one she marries is the veto power. A man can go out and at least try to sell himself to any woman he fancies. Oh. it is a man s world. Think ol the blessed privilege men have in be ing able to be even as God made them, while women are under the horrible necessity of being beautiful though ugly, camouflaging the pulchritude they do not possess. When a man goes seeking a job all that the em ployer is interested in is his ability to do the work. Nobody cares whether he has a classical profile or oxlike eyes. But when girls go looking for work it is the most pulchritudinous who get the jobs. Competent middle aged Miss Frump hasn't a chance against a nit-wit little flapper who hasn't an idea in her head, but golden locks outside of it. * * * * QH. IT is a man's world. When a ^ woman succeeds in any line of work, she not only has to do as good work as a man. but better work and more of it for less pay, because men still have a monopoly on the plum crop and when they hand one out to a woman they make her earn it. Oh, It is a man's world. When a man marries he simply adds the hap piness of having a wife and a home and children to his other pleasures and interests in life. He does not have to choose between marriage and his career. He has both. He does not have to sacrifice his ambition. He does not have to give up work that is just a part of his own soul, the work he has spent years of time and thousands of dollars fitting himself to do, for the sake of having a family. He can combine domesticity and his life work, and each will help him to make a greater success of the other. But careers and matrimony do not mix for women. So virtually every business and professional woman has to choose between love and her work, or else she makes a failure of both, for the very simple reason that no woman can be an adequate wife and mother while gallivanting around the country lecturing, or singing, or whatnot, instead of keeping her own home fires stoked. And there women are. and there is nothing you can do about it in a man's world. DOROTHY DIX. (Copyright. 1936.) The Old Gardener Says: Garden makers who desire flowers for cutting—and that means most women—will find the montbretias very useful. These are bulbous flowers to be grown In much the same way as gladioli, but the flowers are smaller than those of the gladiolus and have smaller stems, for which reason it is very easy to arrange them in vases. Some of the newer English kinds are especially fine. They come late in the season, to be sore, but that is not a great disadvantage, for there are plenty of good flowers for house decoration earlier in the season. The montbretia bulbs are smaller than those of gladioli and it is necessary to plant them in groups in order to make them impressive in the garden.

PARK & TILFORD, Distributors L _ m BJ^BIII p ajjfrjl I 1 ! Desirable To Avoid an Angry Scene Outburst Leaves Bad Effects Mentally and Bodily. BY ANGELO PATRI. JT IS not smart to lose your temper. Anger is your enemy, a fiend who takes you over, bound hand and foot, and delivers you to destruction. You are never so helpless as when you are angry, for then your self, your ordi nary happy, wholesome self, has gone from your body and left you at the mercy of devils, who seek your ruin. Fear this, and protect yourself against it. There are some who pride them eelves on having a temper. “Oh. I have a terrible temper. I inherited It from my father. Once I get going I make things fly. I just can’t help it.’’ Any trained ear can hear, "and I enjoy feeling myself let go and making other people tremble at my rage.” Only weaklings talk that way, or al low themselves to feel that way with out checking their impulses. Anger is an instinct granted ani mals and people for defense against attack. When one is threatened anger rises to balance fear and so enables us to fight for our lives and property. The body forces support anger, the whole being is directed toward the powers of defense. This is for emer gency only. We are not called upon to defend our lives and our sacred honor, and our DroDertv every day of every week. Even in times of stress we have learned to hold back the anger and maintain control of our reason. Reason is a stronger force than anger once it is in control. It may call on anger in extremity, but only in ex tremity. It does not bring out the forces of death and disaster to avenge a disappointment over the fit of a pair of gloves. So avoid anger if you want to save yourself waste and weakness In daily living. Anger uses all the stored energy of the body. That energy is released when anger lifts its head and roars. It is poured out generously because | that roar is a call to arms in defense | of sacred rights. After the storm dies i down and anger retreats grumbling to its den the body collapses. Drained of ltd energy it sinks to lowest levels of power. There are chills, vomiting, headaches, a feeling of great distress i in every part of the weary, depleted ! body. This is a high price to pay for I a moment's proud anger. Par too high for what it brings. There is grave dancer in anger be cause reason sleeps when anger rages. The blind body strikes out in its anger and recks nothing of its doings. Things have been done in anger that have ruined lives, blighted careers, brought tragedy and grief to innocent people. Anger is to be feared not only by those upon whom its blows may fall, but by the angered one himself. His anger may lead him into black despair. Anger never gets anything worth while. It never gets anything that reason could not have persuaded into being with half the cost. Anger wins no friends, but breeds enemies by bat talions. Anger breeds distrust, rebel lion and hate—a crew of evil. There ; Is nothing smart about allowing it free ! rein. Self-control is far smarter be cause along with it reason rules. (Copyright. lOoti • My Neighbor Says: When building a rock garden care should be taken to set the stones in such a way that they tilt slightly backward, rather than forward as this prevents rain from washing soil from pockets. An excellent furniture polish is made by melting together ’3 pound beeswax over hot water. When melted remove from fire and stir in turpentine until mix ture is like a thick batter. To keep steel bright, dip a piece of rag in a little kerosene, then in fine ashes, and rub the steel briskly for a few minutes. Then polish with a clean, dry cloth and fine ashes, and you will be de lighted with the result. A spoonful of kerosene added to a pail of very hot water will j make windows, mirrors and pic ture glasses bright and clear. In washing windows use a small clean cloth, wring it dry and rub it over the glass, after wiping down the framework with an oiled cloth. Do the same with the next window on both sides. After that go back to the first one and wipe it dry with a large clean cloth. No real polishing is required. (Copyright, 1936.) T-t> ~ Shopping in Washington When the Reality Is as Beautiful as the Silhouette It Is the Result of Constant Care. (-* !— -1 ; . ... i lit the time of roses use a rose mask to enhance your loveliness. -From a w“hin«ton Shop BY MARGARET WARNER. TORIES of beautiful women of history are always fascinating. We never tire of reading of new angles of their interesting lives and any little beauty hints that might be applied to modern living are eager ly pounced upon. Take the story of Mme. Du Barry. For 200 years the world has continued to cherish the memory of this beau tiful French idol with the rose-petal skin. A young girl from the provinces, she first appeared in Paris at Labille's, the milliner's, where she discovered that a lovely skin makes a smart hat look even smarter. It is said that she had "an atmosphere of intoxicating youth about her" that she still re tained at 45! From the little milliner's shop she soon won first the heart of M. Le Comte Du Barry and then stepped into the golden whirlpool of Versailles, the favorite of a French King. Artists and poets adored her and have left us their immortal records of her beauty. Her smooth, velvety, cream-and-rose skin seems to have made a deep im pression on her admirers. To retain this loveliness through the years was the result of constant care and seems to inspire us to renewed efforts at the daily task of cleansing and caring for the complexion. * * * * A/fOST lines of cosmetics, if care ^ fully studied and followed dili gently, will produce good results. The fault lies in the fact that we arc not systematic and not thorough enough. A great deal of thought and study has been put into the preparation of a booklet of instructions for the home use of a well-known firm's cosmetics. It shows you a little chart of two hands and describes how to use the Anger tips, the palm cushion and other portions of the hand for correct home massage on various areas of the face and throat. Cleanliness is stressed and the fact that cleansing cream should always be followed by a lotion to com pletely remove the last vestige of the ! cream itself. It has many interesting : suggestions for the application of all the products included in the various treatments. Here are a few simple steps to fol low in giving your complexion a youthful tone. After cleansing the face and throat apply a special new rose mask generously with the excep tion of the area around the eyes. Then lie down and relax for 20 minutes. Notice the many invisible Angers at work—feel them tighten loose skin, seemingly drawing it upward—Arming Aaccid contours. reAning and normal izing enlarged pores. When the time is up, remove the mask (which should be a soft rose color when dry) with either tepid water or skin freshener. When you look in your mirror you will see a fresh, youthful skin, radiantly trans parent. You will like its petal-soft ness and its cool firmness. This is your quick "pick-up" facial, bracing and refreshing. * * * * A/'EGETABLE colors and nail pol V ishes as an accessory to the cos tume were featured at a fashion show held recently in New York. Fashion experts from all over the country gathered to see models who were made up according to natural-skin tones and color of the gown. All wore rust, ruby or rose polish, with matching lipstick, to give the proper harmoniz ing value to the costume. These three shaded have been voted smartest for Summer, and the show was the first of its kind to feature nails and lips as accessories. Rhubarb pink, wax-bean, red cab bage, parsley green and garden blue were the five vegetable colors intro duced for Summer wear. Accents of red cabage were echoed in the ruby tone of nails and lips. Where red cabbage dominated the ensemble, nails were softened to rose to avoid over stressing the brilliant color. Make up with this shade was based on rosy tints, with faint blue overtones. Wax bean. a soft, off-shade of yellow, des tined for a wide vogue, was worn with rust, the sun-tan shade of polish and lipstick. With wax-bean and other tones having a yellow caste, a very clear powder with a touch of yellow was used—rode cream for blonds and “brunette’’ for the darker-skinned. With a romantic dinner frock In deep plum the model wore rose tinted nails to match a tiny cloche of petals. Silver mauve eye shadow and blue cosmetique were used. Ruby nails with a printed evening gown echoed the deepest tone of the print.

BY ELSIE PIERCE. CO MANY of you complain from ^ time to time that you really do not have a half hour to spend on yourself night after night. I am in sympathy with most of you, for I know how much home and office work can tax one’s strength and time. But I also know that most of you spend at least 20 minutes to a half hour in your bath every night. The usual procedure, of course, la to scrub with a good bland soap and a bath brash and then lie back and ^ soak for about 10 or IS minutes. There’s nothig wrong with that. In fact, if the water is lukewarm, it shouldn't be hot, It Is a soothing tonic to frayed nerves and is a fine way to induce sleep. But if you are really pressed for time you can com bine your beauty routine with your bath, accomplishing much in the half hour. The first thing you will need is a bath shelf or tray. There are fine ones on the market and they are no where near as expensive as they were years ago when first introduced. Some have a folding mirror that 1 stands up when you say so and sees | you through your beauty regime. If there’s a handy man in the family, * particularly a young son who has a shop in school, he can easily make one for you. The tray should fit se curely across the tub and be strong enough to hold jars of cream, a hand mirror, tissues, cotton, a hair brush or whatever you plan to use. nuu uu piau uci > uui ai wcico uu* on the tray. Have everything handy. One day you might want to give your self a scalp treatment. Apply the warm oil before you get into the tub. The warm water vapor will throw the pores open and help the oil seep in. Once in the tub lean, not too heavily, on the shelf or tray and massage. Have a towel or tissues handy for , your hands, so you won’t feel messy. Another night you might wish to give yourself a manicure and the bath is a fine time to do it. File your fingernails before getting into the tub, then let the fingertips soak in the tub water or. better yet. in little bowls of oil on the bath shelf. Then push back the cuticle, cutting only the hangnails or raw edges. Scrub and rinse the nails thoroughly, dry + well and save the polish application i until you are out of the tub. i As for the facial, the combination i of bath and facial in one is a nat i ural. Cleanse the skin first. Then apply your skin food or stimulating cream or mask and lie back. Remove as you are ready to leave your bath. You can leave a thin film of the | cream on overnight if the skin is very dry, otherwise follow with cold water or skin tonic. If your mask is the type that has to dry or set, better not combine it with a warm bath, for it may remain moist and gummy. You’ll have to take extra time occasionally for such a mask.

The 4 latter are those cooked in boiling water for about 10 minutes.
