Meals with very little vegetable
food except bread are undesirable from
the standpoint of dietetics.-Dr.
These dishes are not for daily use
lin the ordinary household, as they are
either too much work to
prerare or ure to1-* ex
Fillets of Game or
Chicken.-Cut the meat
from the bones in wide
strips and cook 'Jt *u

tablespoonful of buttery
two tablespoonfuls af
currant jelly and the strained gravy
left from the first cooking of the fowl,
or venison. Have molded a ring of
rice, place in the oven after spreading
with butter and brown. Serve on a
round dish and put the fillets in the
center with the sauce poured over. A
teaspoonful of curry and a teaspoonful
of chutney added to the sauce will
add variety to this dish.
Eggs With Cheese.-Beat six eggs
slightly with a fork. Place in a chaf- (
ing dish a tablespoonful of butter, and i
when this is melted and hot add two
tablespoonfuls of grated cheese. Stir j
until smooth, then add the eggs and
season with paprika and salt. Cook
until the eggs are scrambled. Serve
on toast. i
Nesselrode Pudding.-Make a cus- j
tard of three cupfuls of milk, 1% cup
fuls of sugar, the yolks of five eggs
and a half teaspoonful of salt, strain
and cool; add a pint of thin cream, a
fourth of a cupful of pineapple 3irup
and 1% cupfuls of cooked and mashed
chestnuts. The nuts are put through
a strainer after cooking. Line a two
quart melon mold with a part of the
mixture and to the remainder add one- '
half a cupful of candied fruit, cut in
bits, a quarter of a cupful of sultana
raisins and eight chestnuts broken in
pieces and soaked in cherry juice for

Bombe Glac?e.-Line a mold with
sherbet or water ice, fill with ice

pack in ice and salt and let stand two
hours. Macaroon ice cream is an
other good combination.
A meal should be taken at leisure,
body and mind being for the time be

social intercourse.-Horace Fletcher.
Many a one has been comforted in
their sorrow by seeing a good dish
come upon the table.-Mrs. Gaskell.

Farmer Should Not Be Afraid to Cull
Closely, Weeding Out All Weakly,
Undersized Fowls.
Improve the flock; it always pays.
Many of the farms have good stock,
but the trouble is they have too many
kinds of it. It is a poor policy to buy
up purebred stock and turn it loose
among a half dozen other kinds, some
so crossed they will stand for nearly
any kind of treatment; yet this is a
rule on many farms. If you give all
extra care, the purebred will respond,
to the good treatment and do good,
work as long as they live, but the pure- :
bred seldom do good work under neg- j
lect; they are not used to it. Tho j
good treatment the purebred get to

lt Get rid of all poor stuff. Don't be
afraid to cull and cull closely, says j
Twentieth Century Farmer. Weed out
weakly, undersized hens. Say that
you have a mixed flock, with a fair {
sprinkling of barred hens or any color
that is In close resemblance to some
of the purebreds, and yet you know
they are not purebred, there is nothing
to hinder you from making those
barred hens, or the buff, or white
whatever you may have a majority of
-the basis for an improved flock that
will come up to the purebred in size
and looks, with possibly greater laying
power and strength because of the late
crosses in their blood.
It is true that if you will Improve
you must breed from one color. You
must set aside ten or more of your
best marked hens of the color de
cided on, which may be barred. If you
have a cockerel or two as well marked
as these hens and large as the barred
breed requires, keep these to mate
with the selected hens. If there are
no cockerels of this variety to breed
from, lt will be best to put in a couple
of the purebred Barred Rocks.
There must be some arrangement
made for keeping these male hirds
and the selected hens in a pen to
themselves during the breeding sea- !
son. The expense of such a pen is
very light You cannot expect to im
pro re your flock without some slight j
expense. Ten or fifteen hens will give j
you all the eggs you need for breed- >
mg stock next year, even after close
culling. By another year you should
be able to discard all your mixed stock .
and rely on the improved birds to form
all of the flock, which will yet demand .
culling and good selection each year.
With Strict Quarantine and DUInfeet- \
ant in Drinking Water, Simplest
Cures Are Best.
There are many medicines tar roup,
and with strict quarantine and dlsln- j
fectant in the drinking water the '
simplest eures are often the best and \
surest, but here ls one that is worth
trying. When you use this you-omit
the disinfectant from the water, air ]
lowing all, sick and well to drink it, !
but never the sick with the well, re
member. Give this water to them in
their hospitals.
Get the druggist to mix it in this '
way: Two drams tincture of iron, two
drams tincture of aconite, two drams
tincture of belladonna. Add to this four
ounces of water, and, after shaking
well, put a full teaspoonful to each
quart of drinking water. This is to
be relied on in severe colds, and also
in roup if you do not let lt get the
?tart of you in the flock.
Get Rid of Vermin.
Lice live upon the bodies of th?
poultry. They deposit their eggs In
the plumage, generally near the vent,
and live upon the scurf, dead skin and
feathers. To get rid of them reme
dies must be applied to the bird.
Charcoal ls Beneficial.
Don't neglect to have a supply of
charcoal before the layers at all times.
It helps tc keep the flock healthy.

Marjory tried her best not to listen,
but the conversation floated across the
table to her ears with almost fiendish
clearness. Mrs. Faashaw's voice was
a bit high pitched, and Just now she
was radiant with excitement, contra
dicting Tommy flatly about Willard
"My dear child, I was there. He was
simply mad over her. He can say what
he pleases now, but I know and so
does everybody else who saw them to
Tommy tried to divert her, catching
sight covertly of Majory'a face, the
expression in her clear blue eyes, the
hurt, close lines around her lips.
"Oh, I don't know, Mrs. Fanshaw.
Will was Just a cub. I don't think he
ever really cared for her."
"Well, he certainly did, and if you
could have seen her face last night at
the box party Arline gave, when she
heard he was in town, oh, my dear,
my dear! Women are far more faith
ful than men. Hasn't she the most
beautiful red hair you ever saw in ali
your life?"
"I can't bear red hair," said Tommy
blithely. Marjory knew she meant
Leonie Raleigh. She had met her at,)
a tea that week and had noticed what
an unusual type she was. And Will,
her Will, had been in love with her
only three years ago. She fingered
her engagement ring absently. He
was really very nice, a gentle-voiced,
well-mannered, middle-aged French
man. And suddenly something he was
saying caught her attention:
"You know, so few artists have ever
been able to catch Titian's tone.. Red
hair has always exerted an extraordi
nary effect on artists, yet it is rare.
My friend the marquis is quite wild
over a young Californian he met at
tea yesterday." .
"Miss Raleigh?" suggested Mar
jory. Of course, it was Leonie. The
men had flocked around her like bees
at the tea. She had made a complete
picture in the fading sunset light of
the studio.
"Yes. He cannot get the inspiration
for his work until he has the divine
thrill for his subject-you see? And
he has sought fer a model for his
Francesca. She must be this same
Florentine type that Titian loved to
paint, ah, the Florentine women with J
their dark eyes and red hair and faces
like whitest pearlii."
The next day Tommy took Marjory
in to dinner, as Will was west for a
few days, and he noticed her look of
I content.
ly "You know, I expect yoV*?"p(
any moment What have you been!
"Tommy," Marjory answered, "has
the marquis any money?"
"Not much. But he's a really fine
sort of chap, and his title ls O. K. An
cient regime, you know. Some of his
people lost their heads in the same
basket with Louis, I believe. Why?"
"Nothing." Marjory changed the
subject. The count kept her post
ed. Both he sud the marquis belonged
to the little MOUP of marooned conti
nentals in New York, too old to go to
war, marking time in the new world.
And it appeared that the red-haired
California girl was a splendid success.
She had enough money in her own
right to make the attentions of the
marquis acceptable. Even before
Will's return, everyone waa mating
the two and talking of their romantic
meeting. Marjory smiled and said
nothing, not until the night when
Will came back. She was at the opera
with her mother, and two boxes away
on the same tier were Leonie and the
"You know her, don't you, dear?"
she asked, very lmperonally. Tommy
eyed her from the back of the box
alertly. "Leonie Raleigh from Santa

keen with interest
"Where is sher
"Right over there In the Seward
box. Isn't she lovely, Will? Such
wonderful red hair?"
"Ah, they will be engaged la less
than two weeks, I could wager," the
count said happily, next her mother
"He ls most devoted to har. He ls per
fectly mad over har. And she ls quito
willing to be th? fair marquis, ah, yes,
quite willing."
"You know," said Will appraisingly,
"abe always seemed an awfully ordi
nary girl to me. If lt hadn't been for
her hair she'd never attracted any at
"You knew her out West didn't
you, dear?"
"Oh, In a way. Glad she's going to

Then, feminine to har pretty finger
tips, Marjory could not resist Just the
one question:
"Were you ever really engaged to
her, Will?"
"Never!" ver/ emphatically.
"You don't hivve to say that Just to
make me feel happier, dear. I don't
suppose you can be blamed when you
hadn't met me yet, only I dread to
look even in the eyes of any girl who
may have been kissed by you, don't
you know."
"Sweetheart"-he leaned over her
chair-"don't yju know that our love
was so big and wonderful that it Just
swept away evan the memory of any
other out of my life."
And Tommy beamed and stepped
carefully hack out of the box. Even
red hair could not eclipse that strike.
