How I Made My Husband
Happy This Summer
By MARION FAIRFAX (Mrs. Marshall)
, (Author and Playright)
IF you want to keep your husband happy In hot weather, give him those
thingi to eat and drink that he likes, and that are good for him. Tou
note the saving clause, "that are good for him." If he likes meats,
let him hare few of them and seldom, for however he clamors for them
they are not good for him in hot weather. Don't let him eat meat oftener
than once a day, better two or three times a week. Meat heats the blood
and fires the temper. If necessary for his welfare substitute for the
things he likes the things that are good for him. But if you can combine
them so much the better. You will have averted the day of wrath. "
Husband will expect his alcoholic beverages In Summer as well aa
IWinter, though he himself knows they add to the discomfort of ho,
weather. Wean him away from them by cooling drinks containing little
or no alcohol. My husband I keep in good humor by servtag on the
veranda or in the dining room, according to our convenience, the fol
On a warm day this Is delectable:
Four lemoni.
Four tablespoonfula of sugar.
Oae cucussber.
Slice the cucumber lengthwise, keeping
the rind on it. Rub these slices Inside the
pitcher, as an Italian cook rubs a dish with
garlic before placing vegetables in it
Squeeze the Juice of the lemons Into the
pitcher. Stir the sugar into the Juice and
pour in chilled, not ice, water to taste. The
addition of the cucumber flavor adds dis
tlnctly to the deliciousness of the drink. If
husband insists, add a dash of claret.
For a quaffing on a hot day this is in
comparable. Four lemons. i i
Ono pint of claret. ,
One teaeupful sugar.
Mix the lemon Juice and sugar as I bo
fore described. Add the claret and Ice fr..
ly, and made strong or week as desired.
One of the most complete pictures of masculine good humor I ever
saw was that of my father, a Southerner, making a mint Julep. Perhaps
you do not know that there are two schools of mint Julep makers' in the
South, and that there, are rival claims as fiercely contested as the seats
f the M in the recent convention. One school contends that the mint

hould be spread over the top of the glass that the drinker may enjoy
rr, the full fragrance of the mint. The other school heatedly maintains that
v the mint should be crushed in the bottom of the glass, where It Is mixed
fj'. with the sugar and increases the pungent flavor of the drink, sacrificing
tj the pleasures of the nose to those of the stomach. My father was an
ardent follower of the crush school. He taught me to make the mint

One-half tumbler of cruthed ice.

Add the spirita to taste. Then fill the glass

Cold tea is the best foundation for all the fruit punches. This can be
easily prepared.
Ono largo cup of mlaed tea.

If Mr. Marshall shows any warm weather testlness, he is quickly
appeased by a pear salad.
I cut three large, ripe peara into narrow,
i ' lengthwise strips, sprinkle over them a dash
of rum and serve with French dressing.
It is green corn time, and to me green corn is the backbone of the
Summer edible season. Corn only has a really corny flavor if you have

This is part of the valuable advice Mme.
Line Cavalieri to-day gives her - several
. million reader. In her lecture on special
foodi for special physical needs the writes
most instructively on good .and bad food
for the dyspeptic, good ana bad food for
the "liverish" person, and tuggestt a wise
regimen for the nervous person.
WHEN the race becomes more
intelligent and better in-'
. formed about food build
ing material it will be more beauti
ful and remain young longer.
Are you aenemic? Then besides
mild exercise In the open air, al
ways stopping before you are tired,
and massaging the body and face
with feeding oils aa lanollne and
olive oil, feed yourself generously
with thickened broths and thick
soups. Ham and bacon and mutton,
chicken and game are rebuilders of
the weakened system, and butter
may be freely -eaten. For the aene
mic ail kinds of fresh fish are nour
ishing. So are oysters. Eggs are
rebuilding agents. 8o are bread and
cakes, tapioca and hominy. '
Much cream is desirable for the
aenemic, and chocolate, custards,
baked fruits and Jellies are friendly
foods in the circumstances.
Avoid what especially taxes the
digestion, as veal or pork, salt meats
and heavy hashes. Bananas being
among the most indigestible of the
foods, should be avoided.
If you are dyspeptic don't eat,
many things at one meal. Two or
three dishes are enough. If you
have difficulty in digestion lie down
before or after a meal. For you
vegetable soups as tomato, aspar
agus, pea, and bean soups are aids.
Oysters and fresh, fish, plainly
broiled, 'are among your dietetic,
friends. Squab and sweetbreads
and chicken that has been broiled
are best. Your meats should be
short-fibred and broiled until they
are tender. Eat eggs with stale
bread or dry toast. Eggs may be
cooked in any way you wish ex
cept broiled or fried. Do not eat
meats freely, and If you eat any
butter let it be very thinly spread.
If you eat bacon be sure that It la
crisp and thoroughly done.
Well baked potatoes, tomatoes
an ' opinion and polled onions, peas,
lima beans, asparagus and stewed
celery and lettuce are edibles you
should choose. Do not eat fruits
that are either very sour or very
aweet. The stomach of the dyspep
tic Is sensitive to extremes. Tea,
If made very weak and drunk clear
, and hot, Is beneficial. So are milk
and cocoa or chocolate, If not too
Shun raw celery and cabbage and
If you are gouty or rheumatic be
careful not to eat stimulating foods
and avoid all stimulating liquors.
The gouty or rheumatic condition
Is caused by' the deposit of acids In
the Joints, and you should study how
to eliminate these from the body.
Alcohol, sweets and strawberries
add to them.
Eat very slowly 0f the following:
Thin vegetable soups, fresh fish
and raw oysters, whltemeats, as the
breast of chicken; sweetbreads and
pigs' feet Take the whites of eggs,
' preferably raw.
Toasted graham or whole wheat
bread is the best for your condition.
Zwieback and graham gems are also
helpful. For you celery, lettuce, cu
cumber, cabbages, young peas and
string beans, spinach, those vege
tables containing much water, are
excellent Juicy fruits as oranges,
lemons, apricots, cranberries, pears,
peaches, better stewed or baked
than raw. are medicinal for you.
But eat no beef, no fried dishes,
no ragouts nor hashes, neither tur
key nor duck nor goose, no ome
lettes and no salt fish and no desserts-except
fruits. -
If you drink tea Or coffee let it
be weak. Buttermilk is better for
you, and you more than any other
class ot person, should drink
water In large quantities. .
If you are liverish or are troubled
by bilious attacks eat less heavily
than you have been doing. Choose
white meats and fish, and eat no
fat part of the meat Of vegetables
eat much watercress and lettuce
and splnlch. Drink skjmmed milk
and that very slowly, and eat only
raw or poached eggs. Cornbread
or bread made from whole wheat
flour and hot water in which you
have squeezed the juice of a lemon
or orange will help you back to a
state of health. Eat neither cheese
nor potatoes, oatmeal nor dried
vegetables. ,
If you are neurasthenic never at
tempt the no-breakfast plan. It Is
better for you if you can have your
breakfast in bed. The diet should
be light Meats, fish, eggs, green
vegetables and fruits are a help
ful diet. Milk can be taken If the
stomach does not reject it Tea,
coffee, tobacco and alcoholic drinks
are forbidden to you.

Use Your Roofs for Your
Your Health's Sake
THIS ,1s the time when, every day, we meet persons who have re
.. newed their youth. With a new brownness of cheek and bright
ness of eye they smile their gratitude when we say, "How well
you look," and they answer, "I have had such a delightful vacation."
What element of that vacation has made them over from pale, tired,
irritable persons who slept little and ate capriciously, into rosy, springy,
steady-nerved folk, who slept dreamlessly for eight or nine hours and en
Joyed their food without question? It was air fresh, clean, pure air.
This, the one essential, indisputable element of a true vacation, might
have been found at home. Instead of climbing mountains or sailing across
seas for it we could have reached it by taking the elevators or the stairs
to our own roofs.
"When you get above the sixth story of a
city building the air is practically as fresh
as in the country," said a missionary of
health, a physician who could carry all the
drugs he ever uses In his glove, but who
carries with him always a heavy cargo of
common sense. The higher the purer is a
proverb concerning air. The further above

There is, for example, the value that the
roof has been cleansed for us by Nature's
chief house-cleaner sunshine. The sun
light has penetrated the corners ot the roof.
It has destroyed by its power the menace
of the disease germs that lurk in dust And if we go to the roof while the
sun is still shining it performs the same office for our bodies. Knowing
this the management of city hospitals are moving their patients to the
roofs for daily and sun baths, and architects are planning porches to
be screened for out of door sleeping apartments in Summer and glass
covered for sun parlors in Winter. k
Sun, the great purifier, does his work as effectively on the roofs of
cities as on the country roads.
In midsummer roofs have the value of furnishing a lower temperature.
It is, so tests have proven, at least ten degrees cooler on the roofs than
on the streets below. Many a sickly infant's life has been saved by carry
ing it each day to the cooler roof.
The roof Is a refuge for tired nerves, for there the multiple of sounds ol
a city die away Into a distant chorus, and instead of the distracting sights
of the streets there are the stretch of sky and the calm of sun and stars
with their suggestion of endless quiet to the Jangled nervous system.
There Is a moral value, too, in the going to the roof habit. Grown-ups
find there what the city dweller needs time and chance to take stock of
himself to find whither he is drifting and in what direction he should

The extension roofs bo common in city dwellings a few thoughtful
housewives are transforming into out-of-door dining rooms. Here break
fast is served. Here some of them entertain their friends at luncheon or
at, tea. Ingenuity triumphs easily over the small obstacle of distance from
the kitchen and a narrow staircase.- One clever housekeeper drew her
tea things up in a small flat basket through the big clean chimney of a
fireplace to the roof: Another asked each person going to the roof to
carry a few articles when he would otherwise go empty banded, and these
were placed upon a table behind the largest chimney awaiting the cou
venience of the mistress of the house for arranging them.
Those who have' made the most of the opportunities offered by the
roof as a health preserver have contrived to supply that part of the home
with water. At a slight expense the water pipes have been carried a story
higher and fixtures have been added for turning the water on at pleas-

ure. In this way the roof can be sprayed, adding to its coolness and that
of the atmosphere.
A rough table one that has -grown too shabby for use below a few
chairs that are no longer smart, and a hammock or a couch from which
the splendors have departed, will furnish the roof with all that is needed.

plants.' Rough boxes from the grocer's, filled with earth, and ten cents
saved by self-denial when you pasa an ice cream parlor, spent for flower
seeds, plus attention from the grower, will make a corner of the roof a
beauty spot. -
Such an experiment has made of what was a year ago a surface of
blazing red tin an eye rest and inspiration to a' hundred neighbors in
the dusty Forties in New York. The plants that, have been grown are
tall ones. From the neighboring windows searching eyes see-the wind
stirring hollyhocks and cool vines of morning glories. The vines creep
about the uprights of a rough six-pillared frame, over which is stretched
a green awning. The once eye-assaulting red of the roof has vanished
Into the coolest of colors green. One descries among the vines and tall,
flowering plants the outline of green wicker chairs.
Some sensitive souls complain that they cannot endure the vista of
roofs and chimneys. But in Summer most of the chimneys are inactive.
And beyond the roofs is the horizon, and further on perhaps a glimpse of
the river or plain or hill or sea, and certainly the friendly stretch of the
most beautiful roof in the world the sky.
