A band of embroidered organdie is set in the coatee fronts and about the bottom of the skirt with narrow insertion at each side.

Each indi vidual should contribute his gifts and powers to the nation that its life may be the more complete. We have but a brief time at best to play our part and do our share. But by what we do or by what we leave undone our country is richer or poorer, is impelled forward or held back, is ennobled or degraded. There has been too much talk in our country of the rights of man. The time has come to emphasize the common duties of man. If we are as ready to recognize our evident obligations as we are to fight for our inalienable rights, we are in the way of solving many of the most perplexing problems, both of our national life and our international relations. Patriotism cannot be ade quately defined merely as a love of country, for that love may be wholly selfish. True patriotism is consciousness of obligation and readiness for sacrifice. Our whole present idea of patriotism is wrong. We have come to regard our land as a place where certain privileges are assured to us by the government. We are too apt to love our country merely because of the advantages that thus accrue. My idea of patriotism is one essentially of sacrifice. We should not regard the flag so much as the symbol of the protection, of the blessings that it affords us, as we should as the symbol of what we owe our country and what we are willing to sacrifice to its stability and well-being. Nowadays we put too much emphasis on a man's ability to make a great deal of money; we are too likely to set up the ideal of financial success as the only ideal. It is wise, necessary, for a man to work hard, to be diligent in his profession, business or trade, to look out for his own interests. But this isn't his whole duty in life. He has no right to concentrate on the attainment of personal ends, to the exclusion of every other call. Utilization of the Abandoned Farms of New England Would Reduce Living Cost By JOHN HARRIS of New York If concerted, serious effort to reduce the high cost of living is under taken in this country it can be accomplished. There is territory enough and resources enough in the vastness of the United States to produce sufficient food for all the millions and the millions to come at much less cost than at present. It is only a matter of utilizing our resources and conserving our energies. Experts in food production from abroad are astonished at the waste in the United States. They are amazed at our neglect of oppor tunity and our utter disregard of abandoned farms. Recently there has been started a movement to utilize the abandoned farms of New Eng land, which section, perhaps, has more neglected agricultural lands than any other in the country. It has been suggested that these abandoned farms could be purchased or leased for the purpose of grazing sheep. There are hundreds, thou sands of acres of abandoned farms in the Adirondacks, the Catskills and other parts of New York, to say nothing of the abandoned farms of all New England, that would provide the finest kind of grazing ground for sheep. These lands are much cheaper than the agricultural lands of the West, and are better adapted for grazing. ' If the abandoned farms could be utilized for sheep grazing, it will be a long way toward reducing the cost of living in this country. The sheep industry was originally started on the Atlantic seaboard, of course, but it has worked its way westward until now there are only a few sheep breeders in the East. That the industry can be brought back to the East is a sure thing. Sheep, it is well known, are the most economical domestic animals produced. They can live on almost nothing. It has been esti mated that every 6heep in the United States produces a profit of $10 annually. If we can bring back the industry to the eastern states and use the abandoned farms for grazing, we shall very soon make a dent in the high cost of living. Boycott Is Futile Measure and Results Only in Producing Strife and 111 Will By PROF. R. H. HESS Head of Department of Economic*, Unrrenity of Wacoona Prices which are most vigorously characterized as injurious and unreasonable are doubtless traceable in most cases to sound economic causes. The causes of high prices, in any case, can be ascertained only by skillful investigation; and means of relief, when possible, require the exercise of trained judgment and skillful administrative adjustments. In the great majority of cases the retailer is qnite innocent and probably ignorant of the causes of high prices. If somewhere there is a combine or a monopoly which unreasonably manipulates prices, you may be sure that the conspirators are skillfully concealed beyond the direct reach of the consumer. The retaliatory blow falls upon the blame less and usually none-too-opulent retailer, and, if the boycott-is effective, he is caught with a supply of perishables on his hands and incurs an unwarranted loss. At the same time the irate consumer is denying him self the necessities and comforts of life in what is certain to prove a vain attempt to correct an economic situation which is quite beyond such means of approach. The boycott engenders strife and ill-will. It is to the interests of both consumer and dealer to be friendly and mutually helpful. The boycott is essentially a vengeful conspiracy to inflict injury. Its initial impulse is retaliation. Retaliation, at its best, is a low impulse. It is crude and primitive, and, when undertaken in ignorance of causes of alleged wrongs, it inflicts vicarious punishment which is virions and immoral. Hie boycott, in its various forms of blacklist, lockout and sympa thetic strike, is an organized attempt by misled persons to act outside of the law in exacting revenge or concessions from others. The courts have always frowned upon the principle of the boycott, and it is unlaw ful in many states. ALL WORffl WHILE EVERY KIND OF FAD HAS SOME ADVANTAGE. •* 1 Fj P — Trouble Is, One I« Apt to Go Into Them With Too Great Enthusiasm at First—Three Good Exam ples of That Kind. Do you remember a few years ago when we all went wild about paper bag cookery? Everything from soup to pudding we baked in paper bags, and we vowed that every dish that had been cooked by that new method pos sessed a strange deliciousness that never have been gained but through the paper bag. We bought recipe books and no end of bags. We liked the fad for a while and then we forgot. We had a few failures and we became disgusted. So passed the fad for paper bags. And then came a new vogue for cas sftrole cooking. To be sure, similar dishes had been cooked with sim ilar results in France, Spain, Ger many and Scotland, and other lands, for eons of years. But somehow our culinary interest was focused on the casserole, and we swore our eternal and undying devotion to it. It was chicken en casserole, beef en casserole and everything else en casserole until we forgot all about the casserole and relegated it to the top shelf with the paper bags. At one time in the history of our culinary experiments we became ad dicted to the use of the flreless cooker. We spent our good money on a large and complete outfit and spent long hours experimenting with the various appliances. But before we had saved in fuel enough to cover half the cost of the flreless cooker we grew weary and up to the attic went the flreless cooker In disgrace. Now, the really sensible thing to do would be to accept these fads for what they are worth and to keep them all. There are things that can in no other way be so well or so conveni ently cooked as in paper bags. Baked fish in a paper bag is delicious and leaves no dishes to be washed. Casser ole chicken is more delicious than any other port of chicken and an occasional casserole stew is well worth while. For cereals and many sorts of meat dishes the flreless cooker is a convenience to every housewife, and surely vegetables and puddings cooked in glass have many decided advantages. Therefore, keep all these devices for what they are worth, and take care not to ex haust your interest at first by too great enthusiasm. Bread Pudding. Butter three thick slices of stale bread and put in a buttered pudding dish with one pint of milk. Set this on back of the stove, or, if ther is a stove shelf, on the shelf and allow it to soak one hour.

Serve with a hard sauce. Fruit Cake.

Make two medium-sized loaves. Knitting Help. When knitting a sock or stocking If one will add a thread of good white linen to the yarn when beginning the heel and knit every stitch plain on the right side and purl every stitch on the wrong side, which will do away with the ribs, the heel will not be much thicker than the rest of the foot and will wear at least three times as long.
