Miss Geraldlne Farrar honored
with her presence a Lenten luncheon
of debutantes in New York.
Miss Farrar told the debutantes that
there was happiness in work. She
urged work upon all of them. Work,
she said, would preserve them from
degeneration into such a type as Mrs.
Rose of Melrose.
"Mrs. Rose's type is too familiar,"
she said. "To show you the sort

cooking process to continue until the
meat is ready to fall from the bones.
While cooking add one small onion,
six sprigs of parsley and four outside
stalks of celery. When the meat Is
done, remove from the liquor and
separate from the bones and skin;
then chop finely, seasoning with pep
per, salt and butter; strain the liquor
which should be simmered to one
pint; add to the liquor a tablespoonful
of granulated gelatine that has been
soaked in a tablespoonful of cold wa

the gelatine is dissolved, then add to
the chopped chicken and pour into a
two-pound baking-powder box, setting
it where it 'will become firm. When

CONSIDER CHEESE AS FOOD.
on Money Value It Is
Far More Than Betf.
In buying cheese it is necessary to
consider It not so much as a relish
as a food, according to What to Eat.
A relish it is, but the cheese eater
should recollect that some varieties
play havoc with the digestion and
health, and these are the harder,
tougher, and blue-mold varieties,
especially those that are badly made.
If grated, it becomes more digestible.
Solid cheese Is a sustaining food, and
so nutritive that a single pound con
tains sufficient digestible matter to
sustain a man for a day. In a word,
as a food, good, Inexpensive cheese,
based on money value, goes as far as
three times its weight of lean beef, j
As a nutrient a good American Ched
dar, an Edam, or a Gouda (Dutch) is
one of the cheapest known foods
adaptable to the requirements of the
hard-working classes. American
cheese should be mild, nutty and
salvy, never dry, hot, strong, moldy, or
with a cracked rind. Very little
of the best is made, although its
price Is high. Cheese should be
kept moist, but never in a moist at

IN CREOLE STYLE
EPICURE'S WORDS OF PRAISE OF
Description of Delicious Brew That
Fittingly Ends the Dinner Method
of Service That Must Be
Dining at a transplanted Creole
home a few days ago. I was delighted
to witness a revival of the old New
Orleans custom of concluding the
dinner with the service of the 'cafe
brulo.' " It was the epicure who spoke,
and when the epicure asserts himself
sopositlvely it is the duty of all who
love good things to eat and drink to
bend a willing ear in listening, says
a writer in the Philadelphia Ledger.
"In one sense of the word," the epi
cure continued, "the term 'coffee bru
lo' denotes a manner of service fully
as much as it Indicates a method of
preparation. So far as the coffee itself
is concerned, any culinary process that
is productive of a potful of good,
strong, black coffee will answer the
purpose. A fine grade of Mocha is
the best, but the use of other kinds
of coffee does not make the service
of the 'cafe brulo' impossible. This,
however, is the manner in which it
must be served, and. upon this point
at least, individual invention must pro
vide no modifications:

the small dishes and the ladle should

"When this tray of materials has
been placed before the hostess she
first puts as many lumps of sugar as
may be necessary into the bowl. It Is
customary to use one lump of sugar
to each person at the board, although
more may be added if a greater degree

ready for drinking, is transferred to

added, as he moistened his lips rem

The newest slogan of the educators
is: "Look out for the adenoids!"
Some of the more radical of our peda
gogues claim that these growths are
accountable for three-fourths of the
so-called backwardness in school chil
dren, and the first thing that a physi-
J c,an s whenf a ?tute,i ?
veloped youngster is brought to aim
for treatment is: "Has the child ever
been examined for adenoids?" These
growth affect primarily the cavity
lying at the back of the nasal pas
sages, directly above the soft palate,
and may make their appearance in
early infancy. The region affected is
the seat of one of the three tonsils, of
which the other two are visible in the
lower throat. These organs, together
with the appendix, are physiological
puzzles, as they are physical super
fluities. The result is that the air passages
through the nose are shut off, the
child resorts to mouth breathing, goes
about all the time with mouth half
open, which imparts a look of general
stupidity, and very frequently really
becomes stupid for the reason that
nature, in an effort to preserve an air
passage through the nose, raises the
hard palate higher and higher, thus
encroaching upon the brain space sad
impairing the mentality of the suf
ferer. Semi-idiocy is often the conse
quence of neglected treatment, and
the general health always suffers.
