A most satisfying dish to ho used is h main dish for luncheon or dinner is macaroni. In combination with a cupful of left-over roast, well minced, or a half cupful of grated cheese with 1 either white sauce or a sauce made by using the broth made from two or three of the steak hones, with proper i seasoning, such as onion Juice, a bit of chopped celery or parsley, this dish may be varied In several ways and still prove good. Tomato sauce is j of another well-liked combination, also, j The macaroni should be cooked until tender, then place a layer of it In a buttered baking dish, then sprinkU over it a little chopped onion and hits of meat, or two or three hard-cooked eggs, then a generous covering of white sauce, and if the eggs are used, n little cheese adds to the flavor, hut with moat this is not needed. Bean Fricassee. —Boil a pound of lima beans or simmer them until ten der, as boiling is not advisable for dried beans. Drain them. Brown n tnblespoonful of butter In a pan and add the beans, stirring until thorough ly seasoned. Add a little minced parsley, salt and pepper. Stir In a cupful of cream or milk and let it stew for a few minutes; then season with mushroom or tomato catchup and a little vinegar. little vinegar. Rice Espanol. —Cook n cupful of rice in a cupful of actively boiling water for 15 minutes, then drain. Slice two | medium-sized onions, two green pep pers and two cupfuls of stewed toma toes. But the mixture In a buttered baking dish, add salt and pepper, sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake covered for 20 minutes. j to Nut Loaf.— Take a pint of bread ; crumbs, and mix well with two table- j spoonfuls of melted butter; add a ten- j A «poor, ful of salt, a half cupful of nut meats, a dash of pepper and some poultry dressing, with two eggs beaten light. Form into a loaf and bake in a «hallow pan a half hour. Serve with tomato sauce. Bice served hot with grated cheese makes a good substitute for potatoes, and buttered rice with minced parsley will take the place of parsley potatoes. Cucumbers are usually served fresh ,*nd crisp, but are excellent when stewed or baked. A well-seasoned «ream sauce or a Hollandaise is espe cially good with the cooked cucum ber. Cheese is a most nutritive food which we are slow to appreciate. As a »neat substitute It lias no equal, being .concentrated food without waste. DUMPLINGS. Aten are only boys grown tall. Hearts don't change much after all. Dumplings may he either sweet or seasoned to serve with meats. The sweet dumplings are too numerous to mention Fig Dumplings. — Sift two cupfuls of Hour with a quarter of a teaspoon ful of salt, one teaspoon ful of baking powder, _ four ounces of suet finely chopped and rubbed into the Hour, two tablespoonfuls of sugar and a cupful of chopped figs.

"Something to drink" is the impera tive need of all who are ill even more insistent than the call of hunger. The wasted tis sues iti illness cry out for a drink and good, pure, cool water not only quenches thirst but re duces temperature w here fever is present. Liquids of various kinds are so j oas u y taken and so welcome that sus t aining foods may be thus given to | those suffering from various causes In illness the attending physician should be consulted as to the kind of drink to give, as serious results often happen from unwise Judgment. One young man lost his life by taking a drink of grape juice w hen he was well past the crisis in typhoid fever, ac cording to the testimony of bis fum lly. One cannot use too great care in treatment of convalescence. Bever ages as well as everything else pre pared for the invalid should he pre sented in the most acceptable form which accompanies a well prepared and cooling drink is very Important. Acid drinks made from fruit juices are especially refreshing to fever pa tients. Lemon and orangeade are the j most commonly used, as these fruits are found everywhere. Other fruits may be used separately or in com bination with others, as raspberry and currants, form a most delightful shrub, to bottle for winter use. Lemonade made in the usual way and to which a Fven well trained housemaids fail to | give the right touch to foods.

There are other drinks j like cocoa, chocolate and albuminous | beverages which are all cooling and grated pineapple gives variety to a glass of lemonade. A pinch of soda added to lemonade, stirring it thorough ly, will be a good substitute for effer vescing water. Egg lemonades are so well known that it hardly seems worth while to speak of them, yet they are very valu able. An egg may be digested this way and given often when other food nourishing as well. In a family of growing children, food that builds muscle and brain is necessary. Heat and energy makers are also required. THINGS WORTH THINKING ABOUT. a to in of the The present high price of flour is bringing us back to the coarser grains and foods. We read every day that half the ills of humanity are caused from improper food and eating, resulting In liver and stomach troubles. These are the causes of In digestion, constipa tion, lack of assimilation of food and a clogged condition of the alimentary canal. The value of bran and whole-wheat bread is not appreciated by one in ten thousand. The portion of the wheat which contains the mineral matter, the "growth determinant" about which we ure hearing so much these days, are sifted out and fed to the farm animals. j Those who have indigestion should not combine acid fruits or foods of any kind containing acid wItli starch, as this causes fermentation. To eat food which needs long chewing is very ad vantageous ; sloppy, soft foods eneour age bad habits iu mastication. The starchy foods need to be well mixed with the saliva in order to have a per feet digestion. Starch that has not been well insalivated sets up fermenta- ^ tion in the stomach. Whole wheat bread is more solid than white bread. hence it is better masticated and the saliva penetrates the starch cells. The ' use of vegetable oils for shortening in stead of animal fats is also an advan- j tage, as the heat does not affect them as it does such fats, as butter or lard, i Take a spoonful of bran in your breakfast food, you will not know it is there, and you have presented your stomach and intestines with a splendid scrub brush which will clean and heal any Inflamed section of the alimentary canal. It is never wise to change a diet entirely and suddenly unless under a physician's orders, for habit is a hard master. Going with out a meal or two each week is a good custom, and economical. This win apply to well nourished and plump people who have plenty of reserve. Fasting and prayer should not be a forgotten privilege, as it so commonly has been in the near past. ^UjLUc TVWwtifi, Replum blouses have made rather a determined effort during two entire seasons immediately past to gain gen eral favor. But they have been ae corded rather uncertain attention. In the first place, it is difficult to wear a peplum blouse becomingly. It is unbe coming to the average figure and should be selected oiiiy by women with i »lender and youthful lines. However, the one now appearing is different from Its predecessors, says the Washington Star. Instead of the .

True beauty comes from within, in stead of from without. A healthy skin is the outward sign and the natur al result of inward health. A muddy or dingy skin Is evidence of the presence of poisons—poisons that are more than skin deep. It means the accumulation of tissue wastes and particles of wornout mate rial lying about the cells of the body, clogging the tissues, interfering with all the functions of the skin, dogging the brain, paralyzing the nerve cen ters and enervating the bodily ener gies. A dingy skin cannot be cured by ex ternal applications. Cosmetics may conceal the evidence of external grisi lru , ss< tut the griminess itself must he got rid of by a simple and pure diet. A natural diet of fruits, grain and nuts is most conducive to a clear, healthful and beautiful complexion. Cheese, oysters, sausage, rich pas tries, condiments and foods of this kind conduce to the production of hollow cheeks, dark-circled eyes and a leathery skin, which no cosmetics, baths or external applications of any sort can remedy. Clean living is required to produce a clear skin—one that is clean all the way through, and transparent enough to let the bright, pure blood coursing in the arteries beneath shine through, thus producing the bloom of health. A beautiful skin depends most of all upon perfect digestion. The processes of digestion have a direct bearing upon the color of the cheeks, which usually show pretty well whether a woman Is enjoying good health and is free from digestive disorders.

Some of the afternoon dresses foi summer seem to be modeled somewhat on the idea of a bretelle or Jumper dress. There is a ldb effect in front, and sometimes in back, of taffeta, satin or of whatever the skirt may be made. This allows considerable of the blouse, of a thinner material, to show, which gives u light and cool appearance to the dress. The sleeves often stop be tween the elbow and w rist. The loose pagoda or coat sleeve type of sleeves are most favored, because they are new und particularly suited for sum mer wear. They are not cut too wide, about sixteen inches in circumference at the lower edge. Foulard silk in coin spots or pencil stripes is the favorite material for these Jumper dresses. The guimpes are of lingerie or georgette crepe. Jumper frocks of linen also are seen, those made of washable satin combined with net.
