The Man Wakes Up.
"Well," said Dick, "let us get back to your man." "Merey, Dick, he 1» not my man. According to his story threo other women think they own him, so why should I complicate matters?" "I have had an idea, dear—I really like him very much. I am not sure that if I should meet a man like him in the flesh I should not be more than Interested In him." "You can't make me jealous, Mar gie," said Dick quietly. "You have borne with me and my mistakes too long to take up with any other man fend his mistakes." little book what would Dick think If ho knew how nearly I came to tak ing up with the other man? Would I have done It if death had not step Sed in and decided for me? I do not now, little book, I do not know. "Well," said Dick, "begin where he married the girl." "That is Just where I left off." "We slipped away one afternoon and were married," continued the man's letter, "and for α short timo the little Jealous god was king. And then, as is Inevitable, we began to get acquainted with each other and fouufl that those traits which we had fondly idealized had either vanished or had never been. "One of the first things X learned •bout my wife was that she was sel fleh and extravagant. She wanted all of me and every penny I could earn, t>eg, borrow or steal for herself. She had been earning her own living and ■Was tired of It and naturally expect ed that when she married, the earn ing of the living would be turned Over tj me. "She 'did not like housekeeping,' aho did not know how to sew, she threw up her hands In horror at the thought of having children—she had Do conception of the duties of a wife. "She danced beautifully, played Excellent bridge, dressed in splendid taste and spent all the money most profitably—on herself. I have always loved peace before anything else, and I did my best to keep the peace with her. "My health improved and we came north and I again took up my work of editing:, this time in a small western city. My salary was small, and a beautiful, selfish, lazy wife is exceed ingly expensive. "For her sake I had to give up most of my friends—for some reason sho disliked them all. She seemed to love me devotedly In her selfish way, however. "Only in my work did I find real pleasure. I saw that I still retained the ability to make and keep friends —that most women's red mouths smil ed in return for my smile. "I drifted, drifted, never allowing myself to think. I was always har assed by debt and my wife and I quar relled incessantly. When she found she was to have a child, I am almost sure that she brought on the illness that ended in a serious operation after which she lingered for months be tween life and dep'h.

"All at once I woke up and it was a woman that awakened me." By Biddy Bye. "Why should I observe wheatiess Mid meatless and sugarless days When I can afford to pay any price for food?" a millionaire's wife asked At a food conservation meeting.

Q GREAT 1). S. MR FLEET OF 500 KHUPP FACTORIES TO BITS! I I Washington, Oct. 9.—The thousands I of great bombing planes Uncle Barn's airplane factories will build before next summér may carry to German apostles of /rightfulness a taste—and more-—of the "schrecklichkeit" they are now raining on London, with its horrible κ equal of dead and maimed school children. The startling* demonstration of the efficiency of the great Italian bombing plane in its recent flight over Wash ington has been followed by a decis ion of the American aviation author ities to concentrate on this type. This does not mean the building of fight ing and scout planes to be abandoned, but that additional pressure will be brought to bear to rush thousands of bombing planes. It does not imply the Americans and English are going into the business of blowing children to bits, a la kaiser. What they propose is to hit the Ger man military machine where it really lives. The air raids for which the Amer ican bombing planes are being built will therefore be directed straight at the munition certers—Essen, Crefe.ld, Dortmund, Aachen and Frankfort. They will fly, not in squadrons of 15, 25 or 50 as the Germans do, but in great air fleets of 500, 1,000 or 2,000 planes, earring thousands of tons of high ex pi oclves. enough at a sing le trip to wreck all the factory build Inge in tiny of the great German muni tions centers Geography favors this plan. Many German war factories of real import ance are within two hours' flight from the French front, placed there to be near the Iron ore and coal. Some day .or some night the Allies hope to see a fleet of 500 or more bombing planes, Americans in the majority, rise with a great whir somewhere behind the French lines. I^ed and guided by a cordon of fast scouts and fighting planes, they will drive northwest for two hours until the eco-uts signal the flaring fires of the great Essen furnaces. Then at command the 500 great planes willj swing Into bombing formation and &t a three-mile level drive 011 through | German anti-aircraft barrage until over Essen comes the signal, "Pwelease bombs 1" A thousand tons of explosive, ten times more powerful than dynamite, will rush down through the air. Tha earth will rook and even three miles high the fleet of bombing planes will be hurled about like straws. Many will be destroyed, many brave pi-lots will lose their lives through that tre mendous blast—but Kssen, if they suc ceed, will be no more the great, smooth-running war machine.

SUGAR TO YOUR DAILY MEAL The sweet potato is a sort of "trop ical cousin" to the Irish potato and while it contains most of the food elements of the white variety, it adds to its attractions a much larger per-' sentage of sugar, and by the same token Increases Its price and lends It self to more elaboration and delicacy of preparation as a food. To most housekeepers except In the South the sweet potato suggests a "company dish," something which In-' volves a bit of extra preparation and a particularly delectable result. The following recipes have been found satisfactory: Sweet Potatoes, Georgian Style. ! Season boiled and mashed sweet po- I tatoes with butter, salt, pepper, and sherry. Moisten with cream, and beat Ave minutes. Put In buttered baking dieh, leaving! a rough sur face. Pour over top a syrup made by boiling two tablespoonfuls molasses and one teaspoonful butter for five minutes. Bake In oven until dell-! cately brown. Sweet Potatoes au Gratin.

A few minutes be fore serving cover the top with a layer of marshmallows and return to the oven to brown. War Brings Women Back To Their Own On account of the war women are crowding men out of certain indus tries. They ha.ve even become muni tion makers and railroad workers. But something like a hundred years ago women were engaged in more than 100 different industrial occupa tions. Then the men crowded out the women. For example, there was a time when the women made practically all the clothing. Today there are men tail ors, men dressmakers, men milliners. Women once monopolized all the cooking and the brewing. They were aÎKo the waiters. Today, nearly all the cooks are men, and there are no women brewery workers. Women once baked our bread. Mighty few do today. And the big bakeries are run by men. Women once washed our laundry. Now there are an almost equal num be> of men in the business. Men have learned to clean out houses by the vacuum process. Not only has woman's work been carried from the home to the factor; but the kind of work they are doing has been greatly changed. Their mo nopoly of certain Jobs has been com-' pletely destroyed. Nobody knows what this war will. do to Industry. Women will take* men's jobs and men women's. This much Is certain—women arej going to take a tremendou· stride for-j ward. What Does Hoover Eat Washington, Oct. 9.—What does Herbert Hoover eat? Does he observe meatless days? Does he conserve wheat and sugar? Doe* he a-ttend banquets? "Does lie practlcc what he preach- ! ee?" The country le entitled to know. Red meat—beef—le found on the( Hoover table not more than once a week. Fresh m«*ats of all kinds—beef, pork and mutton—are served not to j exceed three or four times In a week.1 approximately every other day. The meat menu Is supplemented by uerlug ; more fowl and fish. As to wheat. pure white bread( NEVER 1a fot«nd on Hoover's table. | Corn bread an-d corn muffins are con 'sumed In great Quantities and grahain bread and brea/ls of mixed flours are the order. Hoover's table, in fact, lias been the testing- ground for a grreat many experimental breads. Practically the only sugar used is for sweetening coffee and tea, and this reduced to a minimum. There are no cakes heavily iced, no sweet desserte, i'nsweetened rice cakes are a favorite. Fresh fruits are used for deserts. The only sweet he uses in any quantity is honey. Vegetables and fruits in season form the backbone of the Hoover menu. Hoover himself has etetn more water melon than anything else this »um mer As to banquets—Hoover hatee them. He neves goes if he can escape. But Lhe few he has attended this year have been primarily food conservation lay outs. WOMEN STEADY WORK ERA It used to b« said that women could not be depended upon like men to work Bteadiiy and, consequently, ought not to expect so much pay aa men employee at similar work. While It would be foolish for any young woman to stay at work when physically unfit, it is believed that most women now continue at their work as constantly as men.
