ALEC TWEEDIE is= a world wide and world famous trav- Vf clcr, but lately she has staid at home and explored the high * • ways of the past. And that is how and why there have come to light certain fascinating facts regarding the mysterious Hyde Park of old London and the strange misadventures jit® "’lnch therein befell defenseless pedestrians, both male and female, a hundred or more years ago. W? So familiar and celebrated were the catastrophes to per , * son and property in the wilds of the renowned park that women and children, as Mrs. Tweedio tells, never essayed the journey through it without masculine protection, even at high noon, while after dark nobody save soldiers or ruffians would fare forth alone. Some sociologist has shown that all the ancient cities were cities of refuge; that they were built as asylums for their inhabitants against the assaults of the foe. But the modern cities are repositories of pleasure and amuse ments. centers for the culture of the arts and commerce and other peace ful enjoyments. So soon as we look at our own times with the historical perspective they seem different. And they seem better. Ther are contrasted with the past and the favorable changes that have taken place in the meantime are clearly exposed. They receive from the past the light that is needed in order to set into relief the present. Without this light from the past, the present is easily misunderstood. • Modern people insist upon learning something about their own times. And then they verify the old saw that a little learning is a dangerous thing. For they have discovered the ills of our own time without relating them to the greater ills of the other times. In the good old times many of the wrongs that now horrify the people as they pass under the lime light of publicity have heretofore flourished in the dark. In the United States crimes make unhappy reading in the dailies. But thev are ren dered public and avenged, as also are political and economic and other wrongs, in ever larger and larger measure. For all the pessimism abroad regarding (he de- gencracy of the day, the ideals of business and polit / are on the rise. Thrfy invite comparison with r \ ’* loSe ot ' u ’ r of their predecessors and ancestors. our P o!itical heroes of to-day are not Talleyrands to jSwL declare that the first Qualification of a successful I statesman is the ability to lie. And the merchants of I y Sw Jjr' to-day have so far abandoned the methods of more \ \v3)m I l )rirn ‘tivc commercialism, the moving scale of prices \ J indeed ideas, that they find it difficult to trade with the nations which have not adopted their own, the modern system. “When Reuben comes to town” has been made the occasion for as much merri- F!lALfin ment es the shanty Irishman or the old _ clothqp man, but the farmer has come up ,JT ore eel to smiling-and of late years there has been II less disposition to poke fun at the visitor from the country. People who live in Farmer Cities are beginning to suspect that the man from the farm has the edge on the ——■ town dweller. And there’s reason. 87 DOW G. CONGDON I he v age earner in the city has stood and delivered before the man who grows L 1 the bread and butter, and the farmer who once came to town to wander aimlessly about the streets and gaze at the tall buildings may now speed into town in his own automobile, put up at the best hotel and spend his time to enjoyment of the same amusements that call out the throngs of urbans. Not every farmer, of course, can do that. But there can be no doubt that there is more of the cosmopolitan in the makeup of the granger to-day. Even if he cannot afford the luxuries, he has come to make him self less conspicuous. He wears clothes that bear no provincial stamp. The country stores, in fact, in this age of ready made clothing that con servatively follows the styles, gives him a better opportunity in this direc tion than they did years ago. The visitor has learned that his first need in the city is to become located, so that he will not be obliged to wander about the streets, pos sibly carrying his luggage. He finds a hotel where the fare fits his purs* and he decides before he strikes the sidewalk where he is to go and what he is to see. Country people unused to city ways are wont to wande* into the lunch rooms where clerks and bookkeepers are perched up on impossible stools snatching their hasty lunches from counters. It is worthy of note, how ever, that the city workers refrain from making remarks when the rural resident ambles in leading his wife and two children and the waitresses respect the provincialism and make way for this quartet of patrons, whom it would be more convenient to direct to a restaurant where tables are provided. But city restaurant men say that the man from the country, as a general thing, has now learned to spot an appropriate dining place. 111 of the petty annoyances of life are caused by people who either ignorantly Petty Little 01 carelessl y takc no thought of the feei # ~ ings of their fellows.

The other day when the weather was very warm I saw a couple of well dressed women stand up by the front door of a street car that ran into the suburbs of Washington, D. C. They could easily have found seats, but there they stood for over a mils, keeping the air from the other passengers, who were almost suffo cated, the conductor apparently not having the nerve to ask them to move. Another ignoramus who ought to get a jail sentence is the one who takes the left of the sidewalk instead of the right and will crowd in between people and the walls of buildings, when the law of the mid ■•cquires them to go to the curb. iISqgABINET NE stitch dropped as the wearer drove His nimble simttle to and fro, fn and out, beneutli. above Till the pattern seems to bud and grow As if tiie fairies bad helping been And the little stitch dropped pulled the next stitch out.

The deplorable fact that thousands of children in our public schools come (here day after day without proper breakfasts. Is indisputable. The ex treme poor are in a measure pardon able; but what of the hundreds of careless mothers who do not realize what a proper diet for a child should be? A child sent oft to school after a breakfast of a cup of coffee and often a baker’s bun, is not prepared to cope with his lessons or is not sup plied with food to furnish physical energy. A dish of good breakfast food with milk or thin cream, some stewed fruit or fresh, a slice or two of well prepared toast, with an egg when the breakfast food is of a light variety, a cup of milk or cocoa, makes a good breakfast for a hearty, grow ing child. A good rule with some chil dren who refuse to eat, Is to refuse to let them go to school on the days they cannot eat. Ilice with cream and sugar makes a delightful breakfast dish. Baked ap ples with cream, stewed prunes or any dried fruit is always wholesome. In cold weather the breakfasts are heartier; an occasional chop with creamed potatoes. Asa rule, however, meat once a day is amply sufficient. If hot cakes are enjoyed there are none (hat quite take the place of the crispy brown waffle. It Is much more easily digested than the ordinary griddle cake. Another evil to be avoided with a child’s breakfast, is hurry. Let the meal be eaten without haste, so that it may be properly digested. A hurried, nervous child is almost sure to have indigestion. The moth er who does not care enough about the feeding of her child to get up in time to see that it Is properly done, who cares more for the card table and the theater than she does for the physical welfare of her children, ought to be visited by a humane agent. day’s burden thy hands may bear. Nay, 'tls enough dear heart! Borrow' not aught of to-morrow’s care, Cheerily bear thy part. Strength shall be given thco hour by hour; With movement slow or fast, One by one they will glide away Into the shadowy past.” —Alary Morrison. Frying in Deep Fat. Thg ordinary method of cooking called frying, is rather sauteing and the least satisfactory method of cook ing. In cooking a fish in a little fat after It is turned over, the cooked side cools rapidly, the surplus fat on the surface soaks in, and cannot be drained off afterward. That which is left in the pan is usually wasted, as it is mingled with bits of food, so alto gether aside from the standpoint of dietetics, sauteing is not an econom ical process. Slices of fish rolled in meal, laid in a frying basket, and dipped into hot, deep fat, cooks crisp and brown, may be drained on paper to absorb the surplus tat. A morsel fit for a king. The slice of llsh that is sauted is broken and fat and mussy. The best fat for trying is unques tionably olive oil, but few of us are related to “oil kings,” so we must con tent ourselves with a cheaper product. The way the market looks now, how ever, all fat may be too expensive for the ordinary buyer. Lard Is the most commonly used fat, and has never quite lost Its hold as the best of our cheaper fats. If there is a prejudice against lard, there are many compositions that have found favor on the market. Some cooks use one-third beef suet and consider it superior to all lard. Putting the lard and suet together aft er trying out. Walnut Mocha Cake. Cream one half cupful of butter. Add one cupful of sugar, gradually, and alternate one-halt cup of coffee Infusion with one and three-fourths cups of flour sifted with two and one halt teaspoonfuls of baking powder and a dash of salt. Add three-fourths at a cup of broken walnut meats and the whites of three eggs, beaten stiff. Frost and decorate with nut meats. Rice. Rice should be picked over and be repeatedly washed in cold water, rub bing the grains between the hands and renewing the water until it re mains clear when drained off. This removes all loose starch and will lessen a tendency to pastiness. The water in which it is cooked should be kept at a galloping boll, ’hat the grains may have no chance o adhere. It is done when the grains feel tender to the center on pressure. WITH THE BOHEMIANS. The Poet —Just avoided a serious ac cident, old chap.

A S9OO-per-annmn clerk in one of Un do Sam's departments at Washington was recently approached by a co worker, who asked if it were true, as rumor had it, that the S9OO person was about to marry. "It is,” was the laconic response. “Surely, old man,” said the other, with that freedom permitted an inti mate friend, “you don’t think that your present income would justify you in taking a wife?” "To he perfectly frank,” said the other, "I do not.” "Then what on earth can be your reason for taking this serious step?" "I have no reason,” was the calm re sponse. "I am in love.” —Lippincott’s Magazine. Free to Our Readers. Write Murine Eye Remedy Cos., Chica go, fur 4S-page illustrated Eye Book Free.
