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!
1 large pineapple
4 cups diced rhubarb
1 lemon (juice)
8 cups sugar
2 oranges, grated rind, juice and
1 cup pecans, chopped
Cut the edible part of the pineapple

Put the rhubarb, orange rind and
pulp, and raisins in a kettle with the

And there is the first batch for your

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.

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

To Avoid an
Angry Scene
Outburst Leaves Bad
Effects Mentally
and Bodily.
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
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.

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

When the Reality Is as Beautiful as the
Silhouette It Is the Result of Constant Care.

lit the time of roses use a rose mask to enhance your
loveliness. -From a w“hin«ton Shop
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
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.

Time Saving
Hints Given
Combining Vanity
Routine With Bath
Good Plan.
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
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.
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.

Cooking Hint.
Difference between hard-cooked eggs
and hard-boiled eggs: The first are
cooked for 20 to 30 minutes in water
kept below the boiling point. The 4
latter are those cooked in boiling water
for about 10 minutes. It is claimed
that hard-cooked eggs are more di
gestible than the hard-boiled ones.
