BREAD pudding is a conscientious
effort on the part of a, thought
less but well-meaning housewife to
economize at the expense of the hu
man stomach.
For at least one hundred years In
rapid succession woman has - been
making bread pudding and man has
been eating It. It has been observed
that women who manufacture bread
pudding very seldom eat enough of it
to founder anybody. Love and devo
tion canreach no -greater heights than
when a bright, new husband, unused
to life's ways, partakes of this dish
and retains enough courage to kiss
his wifegood-by at the door. Some of

the greatest hypocrites the world has
ever produced are conciliatory hus

Bread pudding Is usually served at
the close of a full meaLT just when
everybody Is filled witlf a feeling of
entire content. It is ' then led onto

To see the pansies In a row, , x
I think a well-kept garden's fine,
And wish that such a one were mine,
But one can't have a stock of flowers
Unless be digs and digs for hours..
My ground is always bleak and bare.
The roses do not flourish there,
And where I once sowed peppy seeds
Is now a tangled mass of weeds.
I'm fond of flowers,- but I admit,
For digging I don't care a bit.
I envy men whose yards are gay.
But never work as hard as they ;
I also envy men who own
More wealth than I have ever known.
I'm like a lot of men who yearn y '

You cannot have the joys of work

Im there no act bo worth my mood.
No deed of daring high and pure,
That shall, when I am dead, endure,
A well spring of perpetual good?
T. B. Aldrlch.
Almond Blanc Mange.
Make a paste of four tablespoonfuls
of cornstarch, wet with a little cold
milk. Stir it into a quart of milk with
four tablespoonfuls of sugar, and boil
until thick. Flavor with a few drops
af almond extract and stir in half a
cupful of blanched shredded almonds.
Mold, chllWird serve with cream.
. - Bread Pudding.
Take one quart of milk and one pint
of bread crumbs, two well-beaten 'eggs,
a pinch of salt and one tablespoonful
of butter. " Bake about twenty min
utes. Nuts or raisins or . both are an
addition to this pudding. After it Is
baked, Jam or jelly may be spread over
the top and a meringue to cover. Bake
until a delicate brown.
Jam Pudding.
Melt three tablespoonfuls of butter; j
add two , well-beaten eggs and stir in
a cupful of any preferred jam. Butter
a pudding mold and put in It a layer
of crumbs, then a layer of 'the jam"
mixture ; repeat until the dish is full,
having the crumbs on top. Bake or
steam and serve hot or cold.
Bordeaux . Pudding.
Cut a sponge cake into three layers,
spread with jam, put together again,
cover with whipped cream sweetened
and flavored and sprinkle with
chopped nuts. Serva on a platter. '
Another dessert similar xto this which
a -roost attractive is prepared as fol-
most tense moments In married life
Is when a well-muscled bride of a
week places a sector of bread pudding
before the man she swore to cherish
and protect, and watches him edge
away from the table with a crestfallen
look. .
This culinary misdemeanor is made
chiefly of bread which has died of old
age and general, exhaustion. After "a
loaf of baker's bread has been put. In
the cake bin by mistake and allowed
to remain there until two strong men
couldn't slice it with a cross-cut saw,
it can always be saved by hammering
It into the form of a pudding. After
surrounding It with a. dollar's wofth
of sugar and two pounds of butter it
becomes able to" stand alone and
throw out its chest.' True, the law
does not compel married men to eat
it, but it is cheaper to do so and avoid
court 'costs.
In some homes bread pudding Is
served twice a treek, on stated days,
and it wxill "be noticed that on those
days the restaurants and cafeterias
are crowded with apprehensive hus
bands. Once in. a while some hus
hand will break into open rebellion,
but this does not last long, owing to
man's forgiving nature. There is
something about a bread-pudding
diet, however, that stamps the victim

Last Night's Dreams
What They Mean
THAT simple little fruit of the oak
tree, "the acorn, has divided the
mystic world of those who profess, or
have professed, to read the riddle of
dreams into two violently antagonistic
camps. According to one set of pene
trators of the veil the acorn shed by
the tree of night through the visions
of our slumbers Is as much to be de
sired as rubles and fine gold; to the
other set It ia thing to be abhorred.
Those who sit In the camp of the pes
simists and the predictors of evU de
clare that ' to see an acorn in one's
dreams means dire poverty ahead" If
you don't watch out. Another one
wails that It means that you are about
to commit an irreparable fault. .- "Not
so," comes the cheerful'and confident
cry from the other camp; the acorn
seen In dreams is one of the happiest
auguries ; the acorn is one of dream
land's most desirable products. Those
who say otherwise are night birds of
ill-omen, , cronklng in the leafless
dreamtrees whereon aetfrns never grew.
To . dream of acorna, say this school
of optimistic mystics, is a sure sign
of good things ahead ; much happiness
In store for you. . It means, among
other good things, that you will derive
much gain from jour present business,
which will increase under-your foster
ing care. - If you dream that you are
picking acorns from the tree it means
that, after trials, you will have assure
success. If you are now a, laborer,
or a worker of any sort, and you dream
that you are eating acorns It is a sure
sign that, from your present condition
of toil, you will rise to a condition ol
peace and ease and plenty. When

Prediction Made, Not Without Reason,
That Coming Generations
Will Be Bald.
That, the man of the next century .
will have no hair on his head has been,
predicted time and again, and the fact
that many men uuder forty are bald
seems to indicate that this may be
possible, the men of the coming gen-
erations acquiring baldness at an
earlier age until finally a hairless t
specimen of the genus homo, shall ar
rive. But it is through no fault of
their own that men are losing their
hair, while women are perhaps un
consciously getting ready to become
hairless females of the species, and
while they may be only working out
the will of Providence, they are doing
it deliberately by "bobbing" their-hair.-The
fashion .was Introduced, it Is
said, by Russian women, who disguised
themselves trying to get out of their
bolshevist-rldden country. Coming to
the United States, their bobbed .hair
attracted attention, was first taken np
by the bohemian set in New York,
and now is rapidly spreading. Some
of the older women, not wishing to
sacrifice their locks, are said to be ,
wearing false bobbed hair. .
