HASH, A COMPANY DISH Who would think of serving hash, just poor old commonplace hash, at a luncheon to which guests had been in vited? It is too bad to speak disparag ingly of so trusty a dish as hash, but it really isn't a viand that Is common ly associated with company functions. It appeared at a recent luncheon, how ever, and enjoyed as good standing as the daintiest croquette might have had. It was brought on in individual china ramekins, in which it had been baked until brown over the top. The hash, by the way, was no ordi nary product of the chopping bowl, but was made of cold roast beef to which had been added a slice of cold boiled tongue, a piece of cold boiled smoked ham, a green pepper and a Spanish red pepper. The bowl In which the meat was chopped had been rubbed with the cut side of a garlic clove. The seeds had been taken out of the green pepper, and it had been parboiled In salted water. The mixture was seasoned with salt and pepper and melted butter, and it was put into the ramekins with small pieces of butter on top and baked until the tops wera brown. Any other hash recipe could be used in this way if desired. If joa want to i[o cant, C. Harriork, Aft. Illinois Central H R., 11l W. Sixth •trnt. Group of U.S.C.

CLOTHES A BUSINESS ASSET Any woman who has her way to make in the world, whether in social or business circles, must recognize that dress is one of her chief assets, says Mrs. Stmcox in the Delineator. The efficiency of a saleswoman, a stenog rapher, a teacher—in fact, of any woman who works—is judged by her dress. Shabbiness is almost always taken as a sign of ill-success, and it is :\ popular if somewhat fallacious theory that real merit and ability always suc ceed. Carelessness is quite as blighting to one's prospects as shabbiness. It may not be altogether Just or fair, but it is true that wherever you go, your social position, your income, success or failure, your ability and character, are appraised by the clothes you wear. If I were starting in business—l don't care in what capacity—and had only a very little money to invest, I would put it into clothes. Clothes that were suit able, attractive and well made. It Is what financiers call a "good risk"—an investment that is almost certain to turn out well. I don't for a moment advocate ex travagance in dress except for women of large means. With them extrava gance is more than excusable—it is justifiable. It keeps money in circula tion that would otherwise be idle. It gives legitimate employment, which is the wisest and most beneficent form of charity, to women who need wbrk. But for women In moderate circum stances a parsimonious attitude toward dress is a false and often fatal econ omy. If you want to succees in any thing, look successful, able, competent. Otherwise you can never inspire con fidence in others, and to look success ful, prosperous, assured, you must be well dressed. HOUSE.MOTHER'S WEEK AWAY Monday— How good it seems to be away Without a single thought Of planning for the family meals, Or doing things I ought! Tuesday— Juat to be lazy aa I wish — The rest will do me good; If only all affairs at home Are going a» they should! Wednesday— The surf is glorious today; I loafted out on the rocks. And wondered if that man of mine Was wearing ragged socks. Thursday— The chef outdid himwlf tonight— (I wore my ecru silk). I hope that nurse remembered to Mix baby's food with milk. Friday— The nicest people came today, Named Vaughn—she's very stunning, But, oh dear, her baby's not as large As mine, nor half so cunning! Saturday— Went motoring this afternoon; This country Is so pretty. But, truth to tell, I thought of John Hard working In the city. Sunday— So still this morning was, without A oarticle of noise— 'Twas lively; yet—l somehow missed The war-whoops of the boys. Monday— Onjy one week? It seems a month Since all my family kissed me! I simply must go home today And find out if they've misaed me. —Mazle Carutherß in N. Y. Times. LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 10, 1000- MNF. BRIDGHAM Concerning the Society Man THE society man is born, not made, Is the opinion of a woman who married one and who writes to th-j Designer the following: There are hosts of manufactured im itations, of course, but the real, genuine, unalloyed article is a result both of heredity and native inclination. I havo reached this conclusion after nine years' exhaustive study of the subjec* from the most favorable vantage ground possible—that of the wife of a society son of a society mother. Dur ing that period I have had ample op portunity for observation and com parison, and every year serves only to add to my conviction. To be thoroughly happy as a society man's wife requires not only a philo soohlc disposition, but incorruptible faith. As a girl I never looked for a husband—Rob came into my life before I had begun to think of marriage—but on more than one occasion I have looked for a husband since. That is one of tUe trials that the woman who marries ONLY SEEKING INFORMATION The average New York boy is not a wonder of wit and wisdom, but most of them know a good thing when they see It. Also the contrary. Not long ago one of them saw a sign in front of a Sixth avenue place, "Boy Want ed " He was looking for something of that kind and walked in. There was nobody in sight and he stood gazing. Presently the proprietor, a most grouchy person, appeared. "What do you want here?" he in quired with scant courtesy. "Well," replied the boy, disturbed by the man's manner, and hesitating, "do you want a boy here?" "That's what the sign says, don't it?" snapped the man. "Yep," responded the boy, getting hla second wind. "Then we want a boy." "Aw right," grinned the boy, back ing away; "you git one; you can't have me," and he wiggled his fingers at the man and went out quickly.— New York Herald. a society man must make up her mind to contend with. Her husband's valet is likely to know a great deal more of her husband's movements than Bhe does. It seems to me that Rob's valet spends most of his time carrying Hob's evenins clothes to and from clubs in pursuance of telephone instructions. Of course, we dinn out together a lot, and during the season we Rive a great many dinners, but we have very few dinners tete-a-tete. If we have no en gagement Rob usually dines at one of his clubs. You see society is just like a tread mill. Once you start you can not pos sibly stop. You cannot so here and not go there. If you t ry that you'll find that you have antagonized some of the very people you most care to please. For myself I should not mind, but Rob is superstitious on only.one subject he is afraid of making enemies. When ever hp talks seriously to me it is al ways on the same text, "Tact." If you want to know the truth, tact is, only another name for hypocrisy. CHICKEN.MUSHROOM PATTIES I Line small patty tins with a good puff paste, fill with uncooked rice and bake. If «you are not experienced In baking puff paste or have not time, buy the patties at the baker's or delicatessen, reheat and fill with the following mixture: For a dozen pat ties remove the bone and skin from a pint (good measure) of white meat of a cold boiled or roasted chicken. Cut in half-inch pieces. Add about half the quantity of mushrooms cut In the same size. Put over the lire in a saucepan a generous tablespoonful each of butter and flour; stir until blended; add mushroom liquor and milk enough to make a sauce about as thick as cream after it has been cooked. Add the chicken and mush room meat and salt and pepper to sea son and place the saucepan in a larg er pan of hot water to keep hot until ready to serve. Fill the patty cases and serve.—Washington Star, » • » ' Bat at the Angelus grill. -.'-■ ANENT A PRETTY GIRL This Is a plea for the pretty girl. You don't think she needs any? I do, for, much as the world loves her, 1 think It Is sometimes unjust to her. In the first place, It will not credit her with possessing brains. I have known In my life a great many pretty girls who were every bit as clover as they were pretty, and I don't think one of them got universal credit for her brains. People seem to think that just be cause a girl has a pretty face it is Im possible that she should have any fur ther good qualities. Now, isn't that absurd? Just be cause the Lord made the rose so very beautiful, that didn't prevent him from also making it exquisitely fra grant, did it? And just because he has given a woman the gift of a lovely face is not necessarily a sign that he has with held from her the further gift of a lovely mind. Sometimes, to be sure, a pretty girl will not be as careful about developing her mental abilities as her plainer Bis ters, but as far as their original equip ment is concerned, I don't think that pretty girls are any more stupid as a class than homely girls aa a class are clever. The other way in which the world seems to me to be unjust to the pretty girl is in not recognizing what a de sirable and praiseworthy thing her pretttiness is. Very often I've heard some one say of a pretty girl: "Her prettiness isn't any particular credit to her, is it? Didn't the Lord give it to her?" And yet these very same people will commend the clever girl as if her cleverness were a thing of her own creation. Didn't the Lord give the brains jtfst as much as the beauty? Doubtless these people would tell me that the clever girl deserved credit for developing her brains. The pretty gtfl undoubtedly fostered and developed her beauty and deserves just as great credit for that. To think a pretty face a vain and useless thing shows great narrowness of mind. We honor the poets and sculptors and painters and artists of every sort who in all times have given their hearts and lives to the creation of dead beauty. Why not as much honor to the woman who does what she can to fos ter and improve her gift of living beauty? RUTH CAMERON. ONE WOMAN'S SUCCESS For creative ability marked by pluck plus determination In working her way from the ranks of employes to the head of a business, no case is more charac teristic than that of Miss Florence E. Bate of New York city. Starting as a librarian In a small middle west town she became general agent In a New York publishing house, and then began her Independent course in business by establishing a literary agency that is almost unique. In partnership with Mrs. Christine Terhune Herrick, the writer, she furnishes lecturers, mu sicians and entertainers in chamber re citals for women's clubs and receptions In which women are- the organizers. As to her progress through a series of economic experiments in education and entertainment. Miss Bate assumes for herself no great credit, although a hint as to her ambition and fulfillment may be found in- her comment as to her present work. "I am convinced," she says, "that a woman is better fitted for arranging such entertainments than is a man, partly because of her Inherent social sense and partly because she knows what other women want in their clubs and entertainments." — From "Women as Business Builders," by B.
