Fer large and spacious as that new abode seemed to him. he began to find a feeling of re straint in lie very shadows, an ab sence of elbow room in its very spac-iousness. And even before the return of Augusta Kirkner and her daughter he found himself wonder Ing if his relationship with the rest of that household would not prove an impossible one.

But to Sto-row it began to savor of that mediaeval benevolence once ex tended. by the munificent to the In disent troubadour.

Of "Cousin Charlotte," as by a stretch of truth he had once called her, he still nursed a vague and boyish memory of a very pale child with very big eyes, unspeakably spindly legs, and a pession for a broken doll known as "Alcie Ethily." It came as a shock to him. accordingly, to find himself con fronted by a quiet-possessed young Dried Fruits For Thrift By Loretto C. Lynch. An AMowledged Expert In All Matters Appertaining to Housk held Management. IT is always a problem for the housewife of limited means to give her family fruit. Yet so necessary is fruit in the diet that we must strive to put it in at least once a day even when the food allowance is small. Practically every baby book sug gests orange juice as part of the baby's diet, but one can readily understand that when oranges reach ten and fifteen cents apiece. as they do in all too many Northern and Eastern markets, that the orange must be saved for the baby and the rest of the family must look for the cheaper fruits. Even the apple gets beyond the purse at times. When this occurs. try using the dried apple. It re Quires more time and patience to prepare dried apples for the table, but since the health of the family is a consideration, the time and ef fort expended seem worth while. Wash and pick over half a meas uring cup of dried apples and then put them to soak in a cupful of clean, cold fater. The next day, stew them in the water in which they have been soaking, adding more water if necessary. When soft, press through a strainer and add two level tableapoons of sugar, and either a few grains of nutmeg or a couple of drops of lemon or vanilla extract. This apple sauce may be served at breakfast. If one desires a dessert for the Sunday dinner, the apple sauc-e made from dried apples may he made into apple snow. To a cupful of strained apple sauce add one fourth cup of mugar, a little lemon juice and grated rind and the white of one egg. Beat all with an egg beater until white and fluffy. To make prune whip, or apricot whip, substitute the pulp of either for the apple sauce and omit the lemon, if ,t liked. Two egg whites makes the dessert a little more rich, but one egg white is enough. Chill the "snow'' end serve with a boiled custard flavored with vanilla and chilled.

H(advises man to study the char acter of his lady to avoid mis takes. DEAR MISS FAIRFAX: The letter from Mjas _F. K. M. and your discussion of it interests me. You ask for male opinions on this rqodern problem. May I bumbly present mine? Many men nowadays are as disappointtd in the "modern" girl as F. K. M.. and many like her, are in us. I am a young college graduate and have asso ciated with girls of every type and from almost every stratum of society I find them all essen tially alike. The truly . modern girl, as we understand the term -the up-to-the-minute girl who is overflowing with "pep" and go-likes-nay, insists-upon be ing loved. I have knoyn very interesting girls for only a short time, girls with their education and breeding, and sufficiently tal ented and brilliant to provide ample and satisfying entertain ment of an intellectual type. And yet. if the good-night kiss 1 not forthcoming, their dis appointment is very apparent. Some are subtle, some are frank, -but it is the same. It is strange that many men a'e thus forced to consider all girls alike in this? Is it strange that a man should wish to avoid disappointing his hostess-to avoid leaving the impression of having failed in a social duty? 'm sure you'll find that most men do these distressing things more because they think they are expected of them than be cause of any irrepressibly ardent dispositions. e sprit of play and of persona~ vanity are also important factoni. The man con siders every such affair a con - quest, and figuratively, for each one adds another scalp to his belt and a nick to his toma hawk. The regrettable thing is that the average mnan does not stuoy thn character of his lady love. So that mistakes occasionally hanpen. as for example, wheni one encounters F. K. M. FRANK. .1. C.

N. lohn Oscar begins his lettir by poking fun at your own Beatrice Fairfax, and then says the age of chicalry Is dead, and calls some of my readers "dreamers and pink eyed poetesses." and says that you have been motionless while cen turies of progress and modernism have thundered past. DEAR MISS FAIRFAX It seems ridiculous to me. a mere man. that you, Oh. Beatrice. "who occupy a unique position in the writing world as an au thority on the problems of life," should publish such an article as. "Are men chivalrous?" and then ask four such useless questions an to why a man wants to kiss a woman. The age of ehivalry is dead. yes, dreamers and pink-eyed poetesses hav'e been motionless. while cen tur'ies of progress and modernism have thunde red past. Today, woman wor'ks. votes. polices the streets, and generally asserts her equality; more than this. she is man's equal or su perior. So let's forget the word "chivalry" in the present where things are bought and paid for with a price. Modern man dislikes to be known as a "John." an "Osca"' some one who spends his money on -a girl while another enjoys her kisses. Many girls who are seen at the shows are there with 'Johns" and "Oscars." and if they repeat with the same one at a later date you may know they paid the price. Human nature is filld with the element of perverseness: Peek not s girl's kissen and, she will want to give thAm; seek them and you must fight for them. If the girl of tndsy will be rid nf the Insistent demand of evrerv Tnm. Dlick, and HaIrry tnr her' kisses, she will prove herself true blue to one. Your feminine correspondents: seem to want the candy and the pennfy. In conclusion, if a girl will kiss a dog, why should she dislike to kias a man when he has spent hard cash to show her a godevening of pleasure? JOHN OUCAR. W des geueyina et .sMq.

OTHING stands -better proven in the whole range of medi cine than the fact that ex cessive functional activity of any organ predisposes to disease of that organ. Take the heart, for example. That is a machine which, like a clock, in set to run a certain length of time. If it be abused and overtaxed it will become enlargsed. which enlarge ment is often the precursor of seri ous heart disease. Immoderate eating is anopter familiar example of the abuse of organs. Such superfunction leads it? the long run to gastric disease of some sort, not to speak of the con sequences to the kidneys and blood vtssels. Some of these accomplish ed consumers seem to believe that the uncomfortable sense of repletion with which they leave the table is an evidence of vitality. These people would be saved. not by any profound medical knowledge. but simply by an ability to detect in themselves indications of strain. so that they would know when to lay aside their burdens for a time. They should regard themselves as machines to be kept running effi ciently and with as little friction as possible. This means that they should show some mercy orcasion ally to their long-suffering organs. Such periods of lessened strain re store the balance of things and pre vent many a case of Bright's dis ease.
