"She gave me a message for you.
She said I was to tell you a man can be too late and yet succeed. She said it's broken off, and Oh, John, come and meet Lesbia. She doesn't dare come to you. Are you a man or a stone? No, never mind your hat, John. Lesbia wont care. It's only a few yards round that house of the funny old man with the goatee." (Copyright by W. G. Chapman.) o o THIS IS THE TIME FOR STRING BEANS! VEGETABLES CHEAPER By Caroline Coe. This is the time of year to serve vegetables in any and all ways. They are coming into the market from the south and are getting cheaper. They should take the place of the heartier food for they are healthful and abound in nutrition. Beans should be cooked" as soon as possible after being gathered, for if they are not fresh they will require long cooking and the flavor is lost. Do not allow string beans that have become wilted to stand in water. Wash them and put them in a damp cloth and set in cool place for two hours. Break the tring from each end and cut in inch pieces. Cook in boiling water until tender and add salt when nearly done. The cooks of the south boil beans much longer than we do in the north. The term "cooking tender" must mean as each housekeeper likes them cooked. Many of the recipes give 40 minutes to three hours. TWO WEEKS This is the season of the year when man takes his vacation. He hies him off to woods and lakes in search of recreation. He pulls his oar 'neath scorching sun; his hands and neck he scorches. His bed is hard, his room is hot as forty-seven torches. The poison ivy swells his hands, the sunburn peels his shoulders. He eats canned beef and milk con densed and biscuit hard as boulders. He builds a fire down on the beach' and sits and chokes and strangles. Mosquito, chigger and the flea tot his shrinking flesh hold wrangles. Two weeks of torture he endures then hies him back to store. And works for 50 dismal weeks tJ do it all once more.
