"$-' K ANSWERS TO QUERIES SENT BY READERS TO The Times Question Box Times Inquiry Department: Will you please translate for me the fol lowing words that appear so regularly upon hotel and cafe menus: Au cresson, rotl, en casserole, puree, champignon: and will you also tell me how to tell with certainty the difference between mushrooms and toad- stools? Very truly, ignobam Au cresson means served with cress: roti Is the French name for roast; en casserole means served and cooked In a casserole, which Is an earthen baking dish; pure'e Is a thick soup; champignon Is the French name for mushrooms. In gathering mushrooms be sure that they grow In the broad field and In tirlc-ht. sunnv nlaces. rather than In damp, woody spots. They should bel snowy white, with pale pins gins un derneath If very young, but turning to brown or black as the day advances and they grow older. It Is no detriment for them to haxe broken open, as these are best for broiling, while the "button" mushrooms are better for garnishing and serving In sauces. The skin of a mushroom should peel off easily, yet all mushrooms that do peel easily are not necessarily good; on the other hand, there are some very terrible looking ones that are In reality perfectly in nocuous, such as the morllle, which Is much used in France, and frequently canned and sent to this country. There r e also "puff balls," which, though awful looking, are good and safe to eat. But the point is this: Do not trust , your own Judgment when gathering them. The only test that is certain Is the old-fashioned one of the silver spoon, which, it is said, will discolor in cooking if the mushrooms are poisonous. open quickly, spread with butter, then with the mashed berries. Put the two 'halves together again and pour over the top the remaining berries. Serve very hot. Times Inquiry Department: I am a grirl eighteen years of age, and am ery much in love wHh a young m,a who is bashful. I vuld like to get acquainted with him, but as I am shy myself, do not know how to go about it. Will you please adxise meT ANXIOUS. How do you know that you .are in love with this young man If you do not know him? I stand aghast before your confession of love for a young man whom you have not met, and who, it seems, has never made any advances toward meeting you. The only way you can become acquainted Is through an introduction by some mutual friend. If the young man Is as anxious to meet you, as you seem to be to meet him. be sure that he will find some way to be come acquainted with you. provided he is interested enough. Your confession of shyness, coupled with your admis sion that you are in love with the young man, opens a new and interest ing study in the psychology of love-making.

It has been on about eight ears. Also, nhere muld I hae It done? I have three small moles on my lace Will they grow larger In time, or would It be preferable to hae the moles or the scar they would leave If removed' VIOLET I do not believe the tattooed design can be successfully removed, so you "are destined to carry It about with you for life As for moles, a professional might remove them without leaving a ar, but I would advise you to go to a thoroughly reliable practitioner, as there are altogethei too many charlatans in the so-called "beauty" profession. Times Inquiry Department: Will ou let me know through the Inquiry Department of The Times the address of a correspondence school giving a course In watchmaking' I had the address of one watchmaking school, but cannot remember where It if If there is more than one, please give both addresses Very trulv. H G I have the address of a watchmaking school In Chicago, but do not give busi ness addresses in these columns, if you will send me a stamped and addessed envelope. I shall be glad to accommo date you with the Information you re quest. Times Inquiry Department. When did The Times begin the Sunday venlng edition' Did The Times ever print a morning feature paper and an evening edition on the same da ? What Is the cor rect pronunciation of Thais? Is there a school of interior design in Washington? Very truly. - T L. M. The Times published its first Sunday evening edition on December 6, 150S. and at the same time discontinued publish ing Its. Sunday morning feature paper. It never published the two editions si multaneously. Thais is pronounced" as though spelled Tie-ese, with the accent on the latter syllable, so I am Informed by a member of the French Opera Com pany. Apply at the Technical High Bohool for Information regarding a course in interior design. Times Inquiry Department. I am afflicted with nervousness, which comes from not taking enough sleep I can not get afcleep after I retire until sometimes three or four hours. Can jou tell me of something that will make me eleep' Ver trulv Mrs G. F. R American people do not, as a rule, get sufficient sleep to keep them from growing prematurely old. You should try to form the habit of going to sleep immediately after retiring. Banish all care and worry from your mind and give your brain a complete rest. If you cannot sleep until you have been In bed four hours, there is something wrong with your nerves. Simple reme dies, such as sipping hot milk Just be fore retiring, or taking long walks, are -suggested,-and if these fall to bring relief a doctor should be con sulted. Perhaps you are one of the worrying women, who take their wash ing and ironing to bed with them nnd do it all before they go to sleep. Don't do this. Ventilate your room to the point of coldness. If possible, shut out the light, fix your mind upon some pleasant, monotonous subject, like sheep going through a gap In the fence or birds circling in the air, and relax every muscle One plan Is to open one's eyes and look straight into the dark. I have h,eard those who have tried this say they cannot possibly keep their eyes open more than three or four minutes before they are sound asleep. Times Inquiry Department: Will jou kindly state kind and character of cloths used at an up-to-date luncheon, and please give the style and size of the napkin? Truly yours, L. I am told by the manager of the linen department of one of the large depart ment stores that plain damask table cloths and rather large-sized napkins are good form for a ladles' luncheon. If .ou prefer, you may use a large center piece, and plate' dollies, with smaller glass dollies for each cover. These may be as handsome as circumstances will allow, either hand embroldei ed, or trim med with Madeira or Cluny lace. Col ored table cloths are bad foim, the only color allowable being the floral decora tions, candle shades, and, of course, the dishes. Times Irqulry Department. Can jou Inform me through this depart ment as to the prospects for a young man acquainted with office work In general. knowledge of typewriting and txokkeeplng. well educated and able to converse In tnree different languages to obtain emplojment either In I'ortu Rico Panama or Cuba? I have resorted to every possible means to get emulovment here In this city, but the army of the unemp!oed seems to be growing larger every da. and the prospects are not very encouraging Which of the above places would jou consider the best to try. as I do not speak the Spanish language, which, I understand Is mostlv used there. Any In formation vou may be able to give me as to the prospects In general -o. finding some kind of employment there will be highly ap preciated. Yours trul. K. H In all of the countries of which you speak, a knowledge of the Spanish lan guage Is absolutely essential, so I am told. Instead of going so far away from your own country why do you not take Horace Greely's advice, and go West? There are a hundred opportunities for young men in that Nsectlon of the country to one In Washington or other Eastern cities If you do not care to go as far west as the Pacific Coast, why not try one of the large Industrial cities, Cleveland, Pittsburg, Chicago, Cincinnati, or St. Louis. I have been told that Seattle offers excellent oppor tunities for young men. Times Inquiry Department: Will you please help me as you have helped a great many of my friends, by publishing a recipe for washing blankets. I have a very fine pair of California wool blankets, which have become soiled; and I do not know how tu wash them, having had no experi ence. Very trulv. Mrs. DOT. Pour Into a tub half a pint of house hold ammonia, and lay the blanket over this, covering It Immediately wtlh luke warm water. This sends the fumes through the blanket, loosening the dirt. The blanket should then be stirred about with a stick, and pressed until all of the dirt seems to be In tho water. Then rinse in a tub of clean water, the same temperature as the first, wring out In a wrlnget and hang it In a shady place, where there Is a gentle breeze. This work Is best done on a windy day, as the current of air will make the blan kets fluffy and as soft as when new. Times Inquiry Department. What shall I do to take out a claret stain from an embroidered centerpiece? Very truly. H. A. Hold the stained part tightly over a bowl, and pour boiling water through It for three or four minutes, using clean water each time. Wmej Inquiry Department: Will you please publish the little birthday rhyme that b?glns. "Monday's child Is fair of face," and oblige, . A SATURDAT GIRL I am sorry you are a Saturday girl, for the rhyme says that you will have to work hard for a living. However, as all of us are compelled to do that, you are none the worse off. Here are the lines: Monday's child Is fair of face; Tuesday's child Is full of gracej Wednesday's child Is sorry and sad; Thursday's child Is merry and glad; Friday's child Is loving and giving; Saturday's child must work hard for a living; But the child that Is born on the Sabbath Day Is blithe and bonny and good and gay. Time Inquiry Department: Jtow that strawberries are cheaper, will you please publish In jour Inqulrv Depart ment a recipe for good ojd-fashlonod straw berry shortcake not the aneet kind but the regular shortcake made from dough' Very truly. Mrs. F E. W. Every housekeper is now knee deep, theoretically speaking, in shortcake. And for their benefit I will publish an old recipe tnat is as ancient and hon orable. I dare say, as the reign of the berry itself. First mash a quart of berries, sweeten them with granulated sugar, and let them Btand for an hour and a half. Into a pint of flour sift a teaspoonful of baking powder and a teaspoonful of salt. Chop into this one tablespoonful of butter until It Is thoroughly incor porated. Add enough milk so that it will make a dough that Is easily han dled. Turn this upon a nastrv hn.irH roll out into a huge biscuit as large as a pleplate. Put into a pan and bake la a, quick oven. When it Is done, enlU j Times Inquiry Department. I am a young girl five feet four Inches high and weigh ISO pounds Am I In good proportion' Is there a table of weights and heights, and If so will It be asking too much to request you to print It In the Question Column' Very truly.

This fable was compiled by one who has made the close study of weight as related to health a life study, and It Is said to be absolutely correct. Times Inquiry Department: Where was the first Marathon race, and who won it Very truly, BOY SCOUT. The modern Marathon race Is found ed on the beautiful Greek legend of Pheldlppides, who carried the news of the victory over the Persians over 26 miles and fell dying as he reached his goal. The true Marathon race was much abused and burlesqued by profes sional tunners, who ignored the tradi tional foundation for the race. The true Marathon was not an indoor exhibition of dizzy racing around a five-lap track. It was a long run out of doors, up hill nd down, over a stony path and dusty Hgr way.

The Sandman's Stories THE TROUBLESOME PET. LAURA and Austin Burton lived In a seaport town. Their father was a sea captain and went on long voyages. He brought Laura and Austin many curious presents, but Nick was the most curious of all. Nick was a monkey; he had lived on board a ship for a long time, and Cap tain Burton thought he would amuse the children. A cage was bought and fastened to the wall of the piazza for Nick to sleep in, but with the first ray of light he would chatter to be let out; they were glad to do so to keep him quiet. He would sit In a chair at a table and "' irom a plate, but If there happen ed to be a piece of food that did not please him he slyly tucked it under the side of his plate. Then he would wait for Maggie the maid, to come In sight, and with direct aim he would throw it ii ner tace. Maggie and the cage were Nick's par- aversions. "He's the imp o' ticular ftSiu HE.

Jelly Made of Rhubarb A "Reward of Merit" Even with house cleaning In prospect, good things to eat still have power to charm and possibly aid In keeping the assistant cohorts In good mental trim. As a "reward of merit" try these home made candies and this most excellent rhubarb jelly. For the latter wash the rhubarb, drain it well, but do not peel It, if you wish your Jelly to have a fine color. Simply cut It Into small pieces and never mind If It toe stringy. To every pound of rhubarb add half a cup of water and let It stew slowly in a granite or porcelain pan until the fruit is all In shreds. Then strain It through a cheesecloth and press out all the Juice. Let the Juice stand till the next day, then carefully pour It off from the sediment. Measure the Juice and allow one pint of sugar to one pint of juice. Let the Juice simmer ten minutes or until it begins to thicken on the edge of the pan; then add the sugar, which ha .been kept hot in the oven-, and let the mixture simmer' until it Jellies on the spoon or when dropped on a cold plate. Remove the scum carefully as It forms, and when ready pour the Jelly Into glasses which have been rolled In a shallow pan or not water ana are still standing In It. When the jelly Is cold and firm pour melted paraffin over tne top. cover witn paper ana Keep 11 in a aarK room.

Sour Claret Excellent . as a Complexion Wash Sour claret Is said to be an excellent ' thing for the complexion, and it bids! fair to be the last thing to baths for the woman who Is fond of fads. ' The wine bath stimulates the skin, j but so few women are aBle to Indulge in such extravagance that is not likely to ' be popular; sponging the face in wine( Is not so expensive, and Its benefits are 1 so evident that many women will fol low It. j Different kinds of wine may be used , for the complexion, either white or red. ' and sour claret Is especially beneficial. I The wine should be applied with a j sponge or dabbed on the skin with a soft towel It acts as a strong tonic, and can be used as such instead of a made-up mixture. Woman Guide and Hunter.

She visited New York recently and 'com plained of the cold, saying that she was cold out of the hotels and tog warm in them, and would be glad to get back to the Maine woods. She has shot black bears and can guide any one through the woods of her native State and keep the animals off at the same time. Satan, sure he Is," Maggie would say. snaking ner clenchedflst at Nick. But Nick would look soberly at his plate and never glance toward the angry If he found a paper or a book with colored pictures he would look at thm and throw back his head with his mouth opened as though he were laughing. captain Burton said that Nick was Imitating the sailors looking at the fun ny papers. If he found a letter, and he knew one when he saw it. he would go into a corner by himself and look at It as though h4 were reading It. Then he would hold It In his hand and .sit very still, as though he were thinking, and after a while he would draw the back of his hand across his eyes. He watched the sailors read their let ters from home, and the thoughts of home and the dear ones brought tears to their eyes. Nick behaved so well that Mrs. Burton consented- to let the children keep him. But as soon as Captain Burton went on a voyage. Nick changed from a well-behaved monkey to a very mischievous one. Poor Maggie's life was made un bearable. One day, as she went Into the dinlflg-room with a dish of stewed prunes, Nick reached down from the door fram and took a handful and ran away chattering and dripping the fruit as he went. "Ye long-tiled lmy," said Maggie. "I hope ye choke." Nick kept out of her reach for the rest of the day. But the next morning when she was mixing batter for cakes Nick waited his chance and when her back, was turned he jumped through the window and began to stir tne Datter. ering Maggie and the kitchen, too.. Thin he jumped (hrough the window and'w4 out of her reach in a minute. "I'll sure make monkey soup o' that ton o' satan," she told Austin and Laura, "If ye don't keep him out o' me kitchen." One afternoon everybody was out and Nick was shut up In the sitting-room-He never had disturbed anything arid no thought was given to his doing so that day. But the sight that met their eyes when they opened the door set tled Nick's fate. He had taken every picture from the wall and the paper he had pulled off In strips. He began tiv chatter as soon as the door was opened and tried to run out but Austin caught him and put him In his cage, where ha cried like a child all nlghL The next day a belt was put around his waist with a chain attached to It and he was fastened to a tree In the yard. Mrs. Burton declared he should never come into the house again. But Maggie was not free from Nick's tricks even then. One Monday Niels watched her pinning the clothes to the line, and when she went Into the house he found the length of the chain would enable him to reach one stretch of the line. He climbed up the post and ran along the line, pulling; out the pins as he went and throwing them to the ground, then he ran up the tree again taking th pins with him. Maggie soon discovered what he had done and she came out to pick up the clothes, scolding as she put them Into the basket. "Ye blithering idiot." she said. "I wish I could jlst lay me two ban's on ye." But she did not stop to say more, for Nick began throwing tba pins at her thick and fast. "I'll not live another day in the same house with that son o' satan," she told Mrs, Burton. -...- Nick was put into his cage, but by Saturday he had created such a dis turbance that it was decided to take him on Monday to an animal store tq be cared for until Captain Burton re turned. Nick seemed to realize it would be his last chance at Maggie, and on Sunday morning when she came down dressed for early church she went under his pUUJNO OUT Trrt PINS A3 HEYVENT cage for the milk bottles. Nick reached through the bars with his long arm and pulled off her hat, and managed to keep it out of her reach until he had pulled It in pieces, which he threw at the Infuriated Maggie. Maggie wished In a loud voice all the dreadful things Imaginable might hap pen to him, and in a few minutes the whole family were out on the porch. Maggie was only quieted by the proip Ise of a new hat the next day that should be handsomer than the one fn..lM . him nviA otafmA tnwaril I the table, but before she could reach had destroyed. him.
