Steak and Mushrooms—and the Joy and Peace of Love I WINTER WINDS CAN’T DISTURB THIS HOME .Winifred Black Draws Back the Curtain and Lets Vs Peek Into a Household Warmed by the Glow i* of Faith and True Affection. By WINIFRED BLACK THEY were awfully busy at the office the other day, the married man and hia wife. Thing* had been sort of dull for awhile and all at once business picked up and men came in ■ with contracts and women came in with stor.es to dictate, and people came in with aflidavits to sign and all together, nobody knew what wa3 what from ^nine in the morning until nine in the evening. And little Mary-Mary had to come down town ar.d have dinner with dad and mother at a perfectly good cafetena. And Mary-Mary loved it; she thought the little cakes were so pretty, and she could hardly make up her mind whether to have creamed codfish or Boston baked beans. She ended somehow or other with creamed toast and a little spinach, and she loved the lights and the people and the clatter of the dishas. But on tha next night, things weren’t so busy and dad got away from the office early. He and Mary-Mary went marketing and when tha other Mary’ got home, there was the WINIFRED BLACK table all set in the cheerful, pretty little din ing room, and a bunch of flowers in the ' middle of the table, and dad was in the kitchen broiling a steak—a real steak, thank you, two inches thick, and he had a pan of mu.h rooms sort of crooning to themselves in the nicest little saucepan you ever saw. £ome creamed potatoes were waiting in the oven and there was a salad of lettuce and little young onions. And w-hat do you think?—dad hah found a box of strawberries somewhere in tome market. They were a little pithy, to be sure, when >ou came to eat them, but dear me, how pretty they looked. Mary-Mary set the table and the other Mary laughed and Igughed, and dad laughed and Mary-Mary laughed and they got to talltng about dLnners that were past and gone. 'Hie other Mary remembered a dinner on a rainy day in the country, a wild, wet, windy day, and d; nched with rain and dad drenched, too, and they found a little restaurant by the road aide and they had a steak and mushrooms tha* night. And the man 1 ran back and forth from the kitchen to the q!: er little dining room with an umbrella and carried the dishes unuir the umbrella, and that was the evening they decided to be Mr. and Mrs. And Mary-Mary was astonished. She couldn’t imagine any tintt when they weie not Mr. and Mrs. And where was she? She never heard anything about that dinner before. Ar.4 the other Mary and dad laughed again and little Mary Mary laughed, too, ahe was so happy she couldn’t help Jt. Tbe rain beat on the window pane and the wind came scream ing in from the sea, and little Mary-Mary couldn't bear to go to bed, she was so afraid she might miss something. Nobody said a word about money and nobody said a word about clothes, and nobody said a word about prestige or ambition. Dear me, whati stupid people! What would you have given to be the other Mary? Just for those few happy hours? Honestly now—tell me. CacjrUbt, 1*39, Nf«»p*?*r T«iU:t Ser.it, la*. Home-Making Helps By WANDA BARTON Lighting the House.

How to Get Rid of That Double Chin liy JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON DOUBLE or triple chins never have and I never will be fashionable, and there is no time like the present to preveut or correct these destroyers of feminine beauty. Pronounced cases of sagging under-chin muscles naturally take more time to restore than muscles just beginning to drooi*. If you already have a double clan, begin corrective measures today. If you haven't the chins yet. remember that an ounce of prevention will delay their coming. In this aiticle I’m going to tr 11 you how to dispose of unnecessary chins.

THE story of Tristan and Iseult' and their tragic love, is so well known that It hardly needs re telling. But the romance of It never falls to appeal to the Imagination. The story goes that Tristan, early ©rpaaned. was brought up by the seneschal of the kingdom end edu cated tn ail the courtly and chival rous aits of the day. He was ac complished In everything that. In those days, made for popularity and appealed to those to whom Tristan was a hero. But hta imagination so often ran avay with him that he was forever getting into trouble. The truth was for.iething to be played with and Tnsian made havoc with his toy. When he was but a boy. pirates who had been attracted by tales of his marvelous gifts, kidnapped him. but on bring beset with fearful storms while at sea. determined to rid themselves of him and conse quently put him ashore on the coast of Cornwall. Flam there Tristan made h's wav to the court of his uncle. Hung Mark. Here it was that his gift for romancing made itself manifest. Cornwall being at the time subject to the King of Ireland. Tristan estab lished bis position by kiln eg in a duel the messenger sent to collect tribute. During the duel. Trlatea la wounded with a poisoned dagger and no one but Iseult, the Queen of Ire land. knew the seciet which would cure hum Tristan had himself placed In a boat with his harp and started for I island. On landing there, he told the queen that he was a minstrel and as such was tenderly cared for and healed by the queen and her daughter, also named Iseult. After he was thoroughly recovered. Tristan set forth for his native lard, pretending that he had a wife. On his return to Cornwall, he was r we ted with Joy. as be had been giv-n up for lest. The king p-rs jaded Tristan that he should marry the princess Iseult, and he left for Ireland to demand her I hand. Arriv mg there he killed the ‘Jragon winch had been devastating the country, but the seneschal of tbe court, leaving Tristan for dead, cuts off ths dragon's head and taking U to court persuaded tbs king and and Queen that he had killed tbs dragon. He demanded tbe hand of the Princess. Going secretly to the scene of ths dragon’s slaying, the Queen and the Princess find Tristan whom they bring back to court. Identifying Tnstan as the man who had slain their messenger to Cornwall, the princess determined to kill him. but was deterred by her mother. Alter lbs story of his slaying of ths dragon is told. Tnstan a niasqueiads was forgiven and be asked for the prin cess’ hand. Hu request was granted, and be sailed for his native Cornwall with the princess and her rttimis. During the voyage, a love potion which bad been prepared for the young couple to drink on the^r wed ding night was quaffed by the Queen I*>ult ami Tristan, who immediately fell most desperately In love. Their love wu suspected but everything was done to excuse them as it was beyond their control. Finally, Tristan believing himself forgotten by the queen, wedded the daughter. A polse.ned arrow struck him and he sent tor the queen. It was agreed that if ane be oa the ship, a white sail was to be used. If she could not cocr.e, a black sail was to be hoisted. His wqf* overheard the plot when the ship came Into sight, told Tristan, who could not see frc«n his bed. that the ship carried a black xall. Despairing of ever seeing hla love again. Tristan died. The queen was hastening to her lover’s aid. and on arrival finding only h;s d*ad body, sha threw herself on the bier, and w;th cne last embrace, expired. Legend has it that when tbe two were burled, a sapling aprang from j the heart of Tristan and made Its wav to the heart of Jaeult. and no > matter how often It was cut down, mimediatelv grew again.

NATURE’S BEST FOOD I FOR ALL AGES—MILK Dr. Copeland Hopes That the Time Will Soon Come When Every 3Ian, Woman and Child Will Drink a Quart of This Health-Giving Fluid Each Day. By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D. Lcited State* Senator from New York. Former Commissioner of Health, New York City. BY ALL odd* the best food for persons of all age* is good, sweet i miik. Nature has been kind indeed to make this substance available for the use of the human family. As cities have grown and suburban life has driven families into the country, the dairy farms, many of them at least, are far removed from the consumers. Modern conditions, then, have made it necessary to care for milk more attentively than was the case when every family had its own cow. I smile a* I write, thinking about conditions in the town where I lived as a boy. In that day everybody kept a cow. Ihe “commons” and near-by pastures were filled with animrls be longing to the neighbor*. It was the daily task of almost every boy in the community, and an occasional girl, too, to take the cow to and from the pasture. I recall the “cow-stable," long since tom down to make a place for raspberry bushes. That was the scene of my own daily discontent. How different it is today! Now the scien tifically conducted association* and dairy com- hr COPELAND panics are delivering milk to every family in the great cities as well as the smaller ones. A bottle of the nurest and best of milk is to be found on the doorstep every morning. Neither rain, nor snow, nor heat, nor gloom of night interferes with tntse regular deliveries. i aere are many elements entering" into the production ar.d distribution ct good milk. There are many things that must be guard'd against la order to have this chief food of man palatable and wholesome. Un less It Is normaj In flavor and odor it would not be acceptable. The f~rst consideration is its sweet Advice to Girls By Annie Laurie DCAR ANNIE LAURIE If you happen to be with a girl Mend who knows a boy that you don’t know, and just doesn't think to introduce us. is It pruper to spesk to him if you see him cn ths street or any place? After be had acted very friendly while we were with our friend and he? P. C. AND P. a PC. AND P. C.: Unless you have • been introduced to the young mam it would be quite Improper to speak to him. Year Mend should not have been so thoughtless as to fall u> introduce the young man when you met. Dear annie laurie 1 am a girl seventeen and madly tn love with the boy across the street. My father doesn't like him. so hs won't let the boy come to see me. so we go and meet tn the movies or the drug store. He's a fine boy and *uys be loves me and I love him. Do you think I would be foolish to marry him right away* Fie doesn't make enough money, but I work to a store, so I guess we could Uve on that money for awhile, don't you? 1 have a friend In the same tmx-up and we think if the fellows would get married everything would turn out all nght! SEVENTEEN. SEVENTEEN: I wouldn't advise you to do such a foolish thing, my dear. It might turn out a'.! right, but the chances are all against It. Your father must l»ai« some ground for hla dislike of the young man—probably he thinks you are too young. So don t think of do ing anything foolish You are young and have plenty of time to think seriously of settling down. ► ... ■■■■ II —I ■" » . -K ■■■■!■■ ness. To begin w.tb. clean recep tacles are eseect'al. But these ars not sufficient. Tbe souring process would take place anyway. To pre vent thjs, pasteurization is practiced. The souring germs, as well as the germs of dsease. are destroyed by this treatment. But iha'e are other matters of Importance. Tbe wrong feed stuffs, or feeding the cows at the wrong time, iray result in objectionable flavor or odor. It Is Important to feed the cattle after milking, if this danger is to l>e avoided. Certain weeds, as well as the regu lar feeds, may damage the milk. Garlic-infected pastures, for Instance. Impair the flavor of the milk. Mlllg Is easily tainted by contact with tainted air. Unless the ban is sweet and clean and unless the rntlk is kept cool tn a cool place, there will be trouble. The mixture of air with the mtlk purifies the fluid. If tbe daiivman uses one of the modern methods for doing this, end then submits the milk Immediately to the cooling pro cess. he t^as done lus peiL In every home provision should be made for proper care of the household supply. Without such care the most precious of foods will be destroyed. On the contrary, proper attention to the protection of the milk will render it the palatable, body building substance Nature in tended it to be. I hope to live to see a quart of m.ISt per person the daily potion of every man, woman and chill tn North America. I can think of no one thing that could be b«tt*-r for humanity than the practice of tak ing a quart of milk every day. rAnsw ers to~Health Queries1 N. 8- Q—What should a girl of 15. 5 ft. 2*ta 1ns. tall, weigh?

For a while I humored her evident desire for silence, then when I feared her depression was deepening. 1 told her something which 1 was t-ur* would banish her dejection, but which I had had no opportunity to retail to her. ••Do you remember a prophecy 1 made some time ago concerning Marion and her mates et school?" 1 asked. She turned her eyes a *ay from the mountains—I guessed that it was little of their beauty ahe had seen in thesa first momenta of separation from the young daughter ahe adored —and locked at me attentively. "I don’t believe 1 do." she said slowly—then ahe flushed. *'Do you mean what you said about her tail ing them that Harry—" Her voice trailed away confusedly into silence. and I answered the tense, startled inquiry tn her eyes. "I mean exactly that." I told her. smiling. "I heard earns of the girls exclaiming over the car. and Marion explained In the moat casual way: 'Yes.

It was well worth my repret&ioa to see Lilian's face and eyes lunuacus wilb bappoiess at my little tale. “I wonder bow she got hold of that government angle." she ee.d after a moment. "I never told her anything like that." "Nor I," was my quick comment "But you must remember that she | Inherits your keenness, and that It wouldn't be extremely difficult for her to get a vagus idea of Harry's work. I’.n sure she knows nothing that It would be indiscreet for her to repeat. also sure that she would not utter U if she had found any thin g out.
