Daddy s Bedtime
Columbus Did
Not Know.
Would Hav© Looked
Like a Bird.
■Kl/L·. kiddles. I'm going to tell you tonight about some of the
thlnrs thnt t lie (treat Columbus did not know, π s brave ami
bright as he was."
"Daddy, I thought Columbus knew everything," said Jack.
"No; ho didn't." reiilleil daddy. "lie knew η heap of tilings, but he didn't
know, for Instance, that he hud discovered another continent.
"Nor did he know that upon this vast continent would grow up a great
nation that « mild in time become one of the greatest the world has ever
"And do yon know how many persons live on this continent? Why, there
ere US.OfHUXH):
"That doesn't mean very much now to you kiddies, because you haven't
learned to think In big numbers, but It will one day.
"But there is another wonderful thing about this nation. It wishes to tie
at peace Instead of at war. and Col uni bus didn't know that.
"Neither did Columbus know about the telephone or the telegraph, nor
the cable line that connects uh with the countries of the old world.
"Then tlicre are the aeroplanes and the wireless, things that Columbus did
not dream of. The motorcar and electric lights, the steam engines that take
ships out to sea and across the ocean in five or six days. It took Columbus
about ten weeks to cross, you remember. He sailed the 3d of August and
landed the 12th of October.
"Then we must talk about the little tilings he didn't know about— mamma's
electric iron that Katv uses In the kitchen to Iron clothes with, for Instance.
"By turning on a little button mill waiting for a few minutes the Irou gets
hot, but ail we can see Is the little wire attached.
"When fas Is used or a fire 1» built of wood or coal we see the tire and
feel the henl anil our eyes s'iow us what the beat comes from, but when elec
tricity is used we sec nothing. We only feel the heat, and yet heaps of people
my they won't lielieve what they can't see.
"Wouldn't Columbus line been surprised to have looked up in the sky
one day and see what would look like a bird, but when it came nearer and
wonkl light upon tile ground It would be a man with wings that he had
made for himself?
"I tliii.k Christopher Columbus' eyes would have opened and stuck out
like big glass marbles, don't you. Jack?"
"Yes," said .lack, "but who'd have thought that there were so many things
that Columbus didn't know?"
What Is Your Fate?
"It Is my fate," a woman «aid the other day, a trifle
bitterly, "always to ba disappointed."
A good many of us think this; or that Is our fate.
Some of n.:i go to fortune-tellers In the hope of diseov- 1
ering our fata. The Mohammedans have a saying, "KIs- j
met. It In fato," and let It at that. And there is amonj
many people a doctrine of fatalism growing up, by which j
they believe, they are ruled or moved about as pawns by
some oiitslde power. Iiestinç upon this belief, they throw
off all responsibility for their acts and say with a shrug,
"What con.os, will come. I can't help or hinder."
Yet what Is fate?
The Greeks have a saying that character Is fate, that we all are in
bonds to our nature, and that what a man most desires will in the end
enslave him. Tt will be his fate. Hut It will not be a fate shaped by sora»
Outside power. It will be a fate he has himself evolved.
It is a more hopel'ul theory and Isn't It a truer one? Isn't it but a
differenVj\Uv$shig of that familiar saying. "As ye sow, so shall ye reap?"
tfthe woman who complained bitterly that It wa3 her fate -to be |
ointed would contend that she bad done nothing to bring her many
«appointments upon her. And likewi/ie others who say Fate interposes
MM· or that would argue they havè done nothing to bring these conse
quences upon them.
But haven't they?
r? Let them look a little more keenly, more honestly at their course and
perhaps they will be able to (race that thread of fate winding through tt
and to see that It is of their own making.
This woman who la always disappointed rarely looks ahead suffi
ciently to plan for the accomplishment of what she wants. Or If she does
and sees what is needed Cdi- accomplishment. If she doesn't, like what she
•ees or doeea't wish to take the steps necessary to get the desired ends,
•he will not do it. Then, of course, she in disappointed and says it is fate.
It is fate, her own fate, the inevitable result of her conduct. She will
look ahead six months or a year and sea what Bhe would like to be or like
to do at that time. Sometimes that is as far as she goes. Yet when that
time roils around, slip thinks Bhe ought to be at the point she has wished.
Or If she does go so far in her foresight as to discern what she ought to do
to accomplish the desired ends. If she doesn't want to take these necessary
■top·, ahe won't. In this case also whan the time rolls around at which
, »J*e desired certain things of life, she Is disappointed.
Ian't. that the way a good many of us do?
We auk certain things of life but we say fate .is against us.
We want a happy home. But do we make o-urselve» the cheery,
bright, useful, artistic person who would create a happy home and to
which such a poi-ltion would naturally graxltate?
We want success in business but are we the punctual, reliable, steady,
careful worker that cau be trusted. a»d for whom success is synonymous?
We want the love of certain people, hot are we making ourselves lovu
. ble, are we living up to the ideals of those people so that their love will
flow toward us as unfailingly as a flower turns toward the sun?
Let us ponder this Greek saying a bit. I think that we wtll see that we
■Ot only make our own fate, but we wfll rejoice that the power to do so
la right lu our own hands.

garment for the growing girl. It does

the thin silks and often a color is used
beneath thin dresses to produce a pretty
effect. India silk,, crêpe de chine and the
very thin taffetaa are the preferred silks
and, for such use, the lower edge will pre
ferably be finished with a hem -only
although embroidery and lace frills are
fitoctty for the lingerie garments.
For the 13 year size, the slip will re
quire 19% yds. of material 36 or ±4. in.
wide, with * yds. of insert ion, 2% yds.
of edging, yds. of embroidery.
The pattern 8374 is cut in sizes from

Plckfed Peach·· Should by Alf Mean·
Be Among the Condiment» Stored
—Bramfled Cherries.
Pickled peaches are a dinner con
diment of unparalleled excellence
Many people prefer pickled fruit to
the sweeter jellies and preserves and
the good housekeeper always puts up
| pickled dainties as well as preserves,
i Jellies and jams for her well-stocked
| winter fruit closet.
Here !s a tried and true recipe for
pickled peaches: To seven pounds of
selected peaches allow half as many
pounds of granulated sugar, one quart
of vinegar, two ounces each of stick
cinnamon and clerres. Dissolve the
su/ar in the hot vinegar, add the
spices and boll for six minute·; add
the peaches and bcril slowly until the
! peaches have become soft enough to
be pierced eastly by a fork. Turn
out the fruit and boll the sirup down
to one-half. Now put in the peache»
again and let the whole just come to
a boll. Pour Into a deep crock and
covef when cold.
A Virginian housekeeper recom
mends thla recipe for brandied cher
ries: Cover large, oxheart cherrle·
which have been «toned with some
excellent brandy and let stand for <8
hours. Add to the mixture sugar in
a proportion of pound for pound. Do
not cook, but seal In glass Jars and
jet away in a cool, dry place. These
cherries are delicious for garnishing
whipped cream and frozen desserts. I
They may also be eerved in home
mixed cocktails.

October" In that publication. Among
them la her recipe for Boston oyster
stew, which follows:
"Pat rtne> quart of oysters In a col
ander and pour over three-fourths
cupful of cold water. Carefully pick
over oysters, remove tough muscles ,
from half of them, and slightly chop j
remaining half with removed tough (

ter, one-half tablespoeful of salt, and
one-eighth tea spoonful of pepper. Add ,
oyater liquor, strained a second time, 1
uni one quart of scalded milk. Al- |
ways remember to scald milk in a

To make thick p«a soup wuk ud
■oak overnight one pint of epilt peas.
Next morning put them Into a pot j
with two quarts of water. Meantime I
fry until brown two sliced onions and !
a head of celery In two oratn of (

one pound of mashed potatoes, return
it all to the pot and brta# once more
just to the botling point. Strain if
desired If the soup la not thick
enough add a tableapoouful each of
flour and butter rubbed together and
let the soup heat for Ave minutes
longer. This soap 1» very nutritious
and would take th· place of meat.
For a good cabbage soup remove
the outer leaves from two «mall cab

Pineapple Compote.—Cook a cupful
of rice until it Is quite soft, and each
grain stands out by iteelf. Form the
rice into mounds about the size of
a slice of pineapple, place a slice on
top and pour over a sauce made from
the pineapple Juice, sugar, a little
lemon Juice and butter. Serve hot.
Pineapple Snow.—Drain the sirup

Jerusalem Artichokes
These little tubers are sweet and fine now while they are fresh. They
' are very like new potatoes and after they have been out of the ground
a few weeks will not cook nor taste so well.
Do not pare or scrape these young artichokes but give them a pre
liminary boiling in salted water when the skins will slip oft with gentle
(rubbing. Brown in hot butter Just as with new potatoes.
f Another way Is to make a puree of artichokes. Blanch and skin them
, as directed. Then cut them to a uniforai size, not larger th»n « pigeon's
egg. Place these pared pieces In a shallow baking dish. Press the bits
, you have cut off in shaping them through a sieve, season it with butter.
, salt and pepper and mix in the yolk of one egg. Put this paste around
t the artichokes in the baking dish in the shape of a border. Fancy cooks
ose a border mold for shaping this but you can do it with a spoon so tt
will look very pretty. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top of the 'chokes
and the border and pour a thin white sauce over this; add more cheese,
[then brown it well in the oven and serve.
Artichokes are baked too, just as potatoes are, in their skins, and
eaten with butter, salt and pepper. They are peculiar in that they are
I liked very greatly and eaten heartily of or else they are disliked. This
I is strange because they have not much taste in themselves, nor sufficient
ι flavor to dominate any other food.
Little children like to scrape them and eat them raw with salt, and
! some grown persons enjoy them so.
The plants turn toward the sun as they grow and are called gira
sole. Once planted they are almost impossible to get rid of. I have seen
whole fields overrun with the tall ugly plants in New York State. Plow
ing only scatters the potato-like roots and the tiniest of the tubers—not
larger than a marble—will produce a great, strong plant.
