that the government is going to seize
home-canned foods. This tale is sur

deliberately to h:amper the coming
campaign and render it less effective.
or whether it simply arises from an ut
ter misconception of the nature of the
food and Its purposes. Is not impor
tant What Is important Is that the
story is not true. The government is
not going to seize any home-canned
foods.
A story related to this last is a re
port that the government is contem
plating a war tax on home-canned
frults and vegetables. Careful Inves
tigation here has failed to show the
slightest basis for this report.
Perhaps the most :nnoying report
that has been making its unpatriotic
rounds Is the report that fruits and
vegetables canned by what is known
as the "one-period. cold-pack method"
are liable to be unsafe as food.
For those who have canned foods of
this sort on their pantry shelves the fol
lowing absolutely authoritative state
ment is offered by way of reassurance:
"The cold-pack method processes have
been used for five years and not a sin
gle death or serious illness has result
ed from the consumption of food saved
according to its direction."
Of course a certain amount of com
mon sense is needed In the use of
conned foods, Just as It is needed In
crossing the street or getting off a rail
way train. Fruits or vegetables which
show any signs of decay should not be
canned. Canned fruits or vegetables
whose looks or taste, or odor when the
can is opened, might indicate that they
are spoiled. are perhaps best thro*n
away by the Inexperienced canner:
although experienced housewives often
make use of canned fruits that show
mold, for example, by "boiling them
over" before putting them on the ta
ble.
This last process suggests the name
of "vacillus botulinus"-n germ in a
fair way to gain some small reputa
tion. In a recent number of a medical
journal there appeared an article on
"botulism," a disease which may be
contracted by eating spoiled canned
traits or vegetables.
It should be clearly understood that

In an effort to save tolls and prevent
congestion on the already heavily bur
dened cable, Mason conceived the idea
of abbreviating a Bible text.
At Seward. Alaska, Mason filed this
message to Gantz, In Denver:
"Cfngratulatlons. Colosians. 2:S".
"What's the code'" asked an om
cer in charge at the cable station.
"It's a Bible excerpt," confded Ma
son.
"Maybe," retorted the officer sarcas
tically, and ordered Mason detained
as a suspicious person until the "ode"
message could be Investigated.
After several days' search a misslon
ary with a Bible was found and apolo
gies from the government offered were
profuse when the "code" message was
translated thus:
"Congratulations. For though I he

botulism is one of the very rare mita
dies. The chances for contracting It
by eating canned goods, say the ex
perts. are rather less than the chances
of dying from lockjaw every time you
scratch your finger.
The long-and-short of this whole
matter of canned food is that there is
no more danger from eating it this
year than there was in any other year.
If you want to take extra precautions.
recook canned foods a little before
using them. Remember, too, that
home-canning is a great help in win
ning the war, and get behind next
year's canning campaign.

The war has completely isolated the

world as fa;r as commercial Intercourse

the Islands are the nav:l base of the
British fleet for the South Atlantic and

Since March 10 of this year not a
single ship has stopped at the Falk

correspondence for Buenos Aires and
Montevideo has been sent by way of

Buenos Aires or Montevideo have had
to go around Valparaiso on the Pacific
liners and then cross the Andes by

The British government has bought
up all the wool of the Falklands, giv

put her boarding house on a Iusiness
basis, kept her books with accuracy
and was regarded as one of the busi
ness women who had won out in the
neighborhood where she lived.
"The Dawson House," as Jane chose
to call her establisthment, had a
definite number of resident boarders
and an indefinite number of "meal
ers," as Jane's housekeeper called
them. In the latter class was Doctor
Bradford, who was known to the regu
lar Dawson House clientele simply as
a promising young doctor who, hav
ing spent the last two or three years
at the front, had now taken an apart
ment somewhere in a nearby neighbor
hood with the Intention of building
up a practice.
Doctor Bradford, it was whispered.
was very much attracted to Jane. That
was not so very remarkable for Jane,
in spite of-or was it partly because
of?-her businesslike mamner and
trim, severely made blue serge frocks
was a decidedly attractive bit of fem
Ininity. The remark:able thing about
it was that Jane showed that she was
attracted to the doctor. At hust it
had been noticed by the observing
ones of Dawson House that the doc
tor not infrequent!y lingared after
dinner to join in a hand of bridge
with Jane and some favored married
couple. For it was, indeed, consid
ered a favor to be Invited to spend
an evening in Jane's hospitable sitting
room where crackling logs on the
hearth and warm-shaded lamps and.
most of all, Jane's Indescribable smile
-which always was at its best in her
own private sanctum--cast a spell
of cheer that was warmer than the
hospitality of any other part of the
house.
Sometimes, though, this the observ
ing ones did not know, Jane and the
doctor spent a leisure hour or so to
gether in bracing country walks; but
apparently-apparently surely to Jane
-the doctor merely sought Jane's
friendship in her companionship. On
more than one occasion of late. how
ever, his manner verged on something
warmer than friendship, but always
he stopped himself abruptly. How
ever, there is always a last time when
a man is able to stifle his desire to
come to an understanding with the
woman to whom he is attracted, and
this last time came one evening when
Jane and he were bending over a
game of cribbage in Jane's sitting
room. Impulsively the doctor clapped
his hands over cards and pegs and
board juast as Jane was about to peg
out to the finish.
"Jane," he said. "I've got to tell
yon. You know my mind is not on
the game. Fm thinking only of you
and I have been for weeks. Jane, I'dl
try and make you love me enough to
be my wife if I thought it could ever
work out-but-"
Jane's hands that had suddenly
turned cold were, with an effort at
composure, trying to straighten out
the pack of cards.
"But what?' she said after a mo
ment's silence, and then, as the doctor
seemed to be unable to make an ex
planation she went on with a dellb
erateness that was characteristic of
Jane: "Do you mnean that there is
some reason why you couldn't ask me
to be your wife'
"There is a reason why you might
not wish to accept me." he said.
Jane looked across the table, her
frank eyes meeting his.
"Is It something that happened when
you were in France?"
The doctor nodded in the affirma
five. "I didn't think much about it
till I lot to this country. Why, Jane,
even my mother told me I must have
been Insane to do it-and it is because
of it that she didn't want me to set
tle down at home. That's why I came
here and took the apartment."
"I am sorry," was all Jane answerend
and perhaps the doctor was disap
pointed that Jane did not force a ful
ler confession from him.
Jane spent what seemed to her
boarders a foolish proportion of ber
earnings on the furnishings of her lit
tie sitting room. New pictures and
books and objects of ornamentation
that tempted her soon found their
place in the room, though she would
have hesitated some time before buy
ing a new hat or gown. The doctor
was always lnterestd in her purchases,
however, and had a keen eye to detect
any new book, or pleture or art ob
ject. For the weeks that followed his
attempt at confession Jane had been
none the less cordial than before, but
whenever their conversation ap
proached a point where the confessimon
might have been completed Jane ab
ruptly changed the subject.
Late one afternood Jane foaund the
doctor walting for her In her sitting
room when she returned from a lonely
walk. A smile of keen pleasure was
oa his face as he greeted her: "I've

of the water in which the hearts Were
parboiled, tomato, onion chopped, cel

ten minutes; season to taste and strain
over the prepared hearts. Place in a
brisk oven to brown. Serve hot or cold
cut in thin slices.
Tapioca may be molded and served
sprinkled with minced raisins and a

adding variety. Serve with top milk
and cream.
Currant jelly cut in cubes added to
two tnhlesponmfuls of chopped mint,
and the grated peel of a fourth of an
orange adds zest to lamb or venison, as
we are not eating lamb this year.
Boiled Rice With Fig Sauce.-Cook
rice as usual except it is coked in a
double boiler and skim milk is used
to cook it in instead of water. This
m makes a more nutritious dish alld espe
cially good for children. A hard snuoe
may be used If preferred to the fig
sauce, yet this is unusual and very
nice. Stew the figs, depending upon
the size of the family to be served;
add lemon Juice and a little of the
grated rind with a bit of butter added.
Serve hot.
Kidneys en Casserole.-Put three
tablespoonfuls of sweet fat into a cas
serole after frying in it one small diced
onion, one carrot, one slice of turnip.
a diced stalk of celery and a bunch of
sweet herbs. Add nine sheep's kidneys
cut in halves and cook for four min
utes. Add a cupful of water, two ta
blespoonfuls of lemon Juice, three tea
spoonfuls of worcestershire sauce, a
few button onions and mushrooms and
seasoning of salt and pepper, paprika
and grated nutmeg with a clove of gar
lic. Cover the casserole and cook ei
ther on top of the range or in the
oven for two hours. Serve hot from
the casserole.
Go to it! Even an electric button
won't accomplish anything unless it is
pushed. When men and women have
their ideals and work in common, the
world will be helped along with some
thing like electric speed.
SIMPLE DESSERTS.
To omit desserts entirely is rather
too much of a strain on our loyalty, for
a pleasant meal aids di
gestion, and if we would
keep well to be able to
do our work in the world.
our food must be at
tractive as well as whole
some. The children would
be disappointed to be de
prived of their dessert,
and as this is the time
when a bit of candy
which has been denied between meals
may safely be given, or any other
sweet which we are teaching them to
eat more sparingly of.
Butter Scotch Mold.-Cook together
one cupful of brown sugar and two ta
blespoonfuls of shortening, using care
not to allow it to burn. Pour this Into
three cupfuls of scalding milk and
cook until the butter scotch is melted,
then pour It over two tablespoonfuls
of gelatine soaked in one-fourth of a
cuptfl of milk. Stir until disaolved
and begin to stiffen, then add a cup
ful of boiling ricee. Mix well and pour
Into a mold.
Other attractive ways of serving rice
for those who object to the old-fash
loned rice puddings, may be made by
lining a mold with sliced trait and
packing It with rice, pressing It down
untl firm. Serve with either cream or
fruit sauces.
Prune Dumpiinge.-Take a cuptol
of flour sifted with a teaspoonaful of
baklng powder and a quarter of a tea
spoonful of salt, mix with good rich
milk to make a drop batter. Grease
small cups, drop In a little batter, then
add a spoonful of stewed prunes
with some of the jauice, add an
other spoonful of the batter and put
the cups Into a pan with boling wa
ter, enough to steam them Wrlithout
boilling into the cups. Steam well
covered for 15 mlnutes. Serve with
prune Juice and cream. A baking pow
tier biscnuit dough may be made, rolled
out and covered with chopped stewed
prunes, a little splee if liked, and a
few chopped nuts. Roll up, cut in
small rolls, place In a baking pan to
bake. Serve hot with cream or trait
juice.
Banana FluW~-Use the red bananas
for this dish. Peel fdur and cut them
into dice, squeeaing over a little lemon
juice and covering with a small cupful
of ginger sirup that has been drained
from a jar of preserved ginger; allow
the fruit to remain covered for at least
