Our idea of a miracle would be for a woman to learn to love her hus- bands relatives as much as she loves her own. Our coutention is that a sandwich shop or other establishment of a like nature should be in business at least a weelt before calling itself a Ye Olde anything. The old fashioned woman who used to take you into the panthry to show you how many jars of preserves she had put up for the winter now enter- tains you with a display of the bridge prizes she gathered during the winter.

We have always main- tained that such actions or behavior is due to early training, or lack of it. You don't suppose any kid gorilla ever "sassed" its mother or made faces at its dad and got away with it?

There is this difference between golf and frailties. In golf you try to get into the hole, In lmlitics you try to keep out. They are somewhat alike however. In that both want to keep out of the rough. GIBS AND JIBES Student: "And poor Harry was tilled by a revolving crane." English Friend : "'My word- What fierce birds you have in America."

The United States has forged ahead undeer a government policy based on elmouraging practical Individualism. The century old statement, that govern meat is for the people, not the people for the government, is as true today as in the time of Jefferson. Our al- titude toward the European and Rus- sian experiments has been that a by- stander with an innate dislike and dis- Hked and distrust of political pater- nalism. That the soundness and wisdom of American individualism has been proven cannot be doubted. It can be measured In dollars and cents, and in the less tangible, but more lmportaut values of human rights and happiness, There has never been a period in our history when the relations between labor and capital were more amicable we have never been more free strlk( s arm disturbances and evar have the people of any country at nsr time in the world's history enjoyed th adfantages which are commonplace every American citizen. We have learned that perso|ml prosperity and general prospelty are indivisihle, that it akes ,capital to make industries and pay rnllu and comforts. The average American has leisure unknown to the average European, which he can use to whatever purpose, cultural or otherwise, he wishes.

COOKING VEGETABLES Do 3ou put vegeables ou to cook in cold water? Do you use a large .,. quantity of water in cooking them and do you cook them too long, after they are tea* der? This last will rob them of all theh' flavor and make them lose .  ,; ,,..: their appearance a well as their vitamin content. When any member of yollr refuses to eat certain vegetables, take an inward look and ry to discover why. Are you guilty of any of the above misdemeanors, which are all too foremen among cool;? There are certain rules which apply to the cooking of all fresh vegetables, These rules if f,dlowed will give you vegetables with nearly all their orig- inal properties retained. First see that the vegetbles are welt cleaned. :l'ip and fresh--wilted greens are ofteu made fregh by soak- inglo cold water. Now put thenl to cook in rapidly b(,;li,g water--if the v, ater is slmply hot they will stew and cook, losing nlutl flavor before they have a chance to boil. Use just enough water to l;:(,p the vegetables from boiling dry, use salt after they are partly cooked and boil only until ender--not fl lllOdlt,n[ longer. Placing a eohl vegeiable into boil- ing water chills the water, so that it is necessary to 'over the saucepan and vet the water quickly o the boil- ing point. Now if he vegetable is a grec one like peas. spinach or las- paragus leave uncovered, after the boiling is resumed; tMs keeps them from losing their color and they are more attractive lu appearance. The lengti| of time for cooking vege- ables depends somewhat upon the age of the vegetable. For vegetables that are as fresh as can be bought In the market the following table will make a fair rate: Asparagus 15 to 20 minutes, whether served in stalks or cut into pieces. String beans, 25; beets, young, 45; carrott, shredded, 10: corn on cob, 8; cauliflower, whole, 15 minutes. 7be kqTC00 ((), 1928. Western Newspaper Union.)
