mother, big aister and perhaps big
brother who are interested in the Ak-Sar-Ben

Pages to their majesties, King and
Queen Ak-Sar-Ben XXII, they will
be. The king'a pages will be Harley
Moorhead, jr.; Louis Rogers Nash,
Edward Kennedy, Francis Burkley
and David Crofoot.
The queen's pages will be Jane
Powell, Beatrice Manley, Marie1 Dixon

without including the names of the
kiddies who are to'take part.

jaquith and Penfield-Bacon wedding
parties, the two largest weddings in
prospect during the Ak-Sar-Ben fes

fhe decav of vecetables is due 'to
nicroscopic forms of life called bac
teria, just a is the decay of fruits,
but the bacteria which attack vegeta
bles are more resistant to heat be
cause they have the ability to pro
duce spores. Spores may be likened
to seeds, in that they have hard,
protective coverings and can with
stand unfavorable conditions. While
boiling moderately for a long' time
will destroy all bacteria, it will not
kill bacterial spores; so the vegetable
to be canned must be re-boiled on a
a second day and then again on a
third day. Between the first and
second days the spores will develop
into bacterial plants as they find
themselves surrounded by warmth,
food and moisture. The second boil
ing destroys these new bacteria and
the third boiling destroys all bacteria
which may have escaped the second
From these facts, the "cold jpack"
method, also called the "intermittent
sterilization" method, has been de
veloped. The apparatus required Is
a container for sterilizing and a sup
ply of jars with good lids and rub
bers, or, better, jars with glass tops
held in place by wire springs. A
clothes boiler with a false bottom
of wire netting may be used as a
container. The netting is of galvan
ized wire with a fairly small mesh,
perhaps one-half inch. .
Pack jars full of prepared raw veg
etables (except in the case of beets,
which should be cooked) fill the jars
to the top with cold water and add
salt in the proportion of one teaspoon
to the quart. Adjust the top loosely.
Place the false bottom in the boiler,
set jars or it do not crowd and
pour in about three inches of cold
water. Put the cover on the boiler,
bring the water to a boil and let it
boil one hour. . Then remove cover
from the boiler and allow steam to
escape. Tighten lids and allow jars
to stand twenty-four hours.
On the second day loosen the lids
and proceed as on the first day. Re
peat the process on the third day.
Tighten the lids and set jars aside
for a day. Then test as usual.
If tomatoes are - canned by this
method, one day's cooking is suffi
cient, as the fruit is so acid.
Tomatoes may be canned easily by
the method suggested for fruit can
ningthat is, stewing the fruit and
thent putting it into sterilized jars.
Wash tomatoes and peel by plung
into boiling water for three minutes
and then into cold. Place in a pan
over a very low flame. If you turn
frequently to avoid sticking and burn
ing, no water need be added. Add
salt in the proportion of one tea
spoon to the quart. Boil gently thir

jars, fill jars to overflowing, adding

Serving the Tomato.
All of us who enjoy the delicious
flavorful fruit of the tomato plant to
day will hardly believe that its use on
our table has been confined to the last
fifty years. Even in our grand
mother'e day the vermillion- globes
were looked on as ornaments to deck
the mantle, but not as food. In those
days the tomato was known as "love
apple"; but it was believed, to be
poisonous because it belongs to the
same family as the deadly nightshade.

tomato is not- only harmless, but
possesses acids which make it pecu
liarly stimulative and cleansing, and
though the bulk consists of water, its
chief value is in the small ner cent of
minerals. These have a direct effect
on the kidneys and liver, acting as
natural "salts," being particularly
useful if there is any tendency to
biliousness, gout or clogged intestines.
Variety in Serving.
But to the housekeeper the tomato
is a staple ) summer food mainly be
cause it permits such endless variety
in its serving. . Few, indeed, are the
vegetables which can be eaten in so
many attractive ways, both raw and
cooked, its color and picturesqueness
enhancing any dish to which it is
added. The tomato is perhaps the
ideal salad vegetable because it can
be combined with so many other
foods, particularly eggs, Cheese and
In these salad forms it can play the
part cither of a watery salad for re
freshment only, or if combined with
the three foods above mentioned it
will make a substantial meal, es
pecially suited for hot weather. Here
are some suggested combinations:
Tomato rings, cress, balls cream
Tomato aspic in small molds, gar
nished with pepper rings.
' Tomato cup stuffed with chopped
cabbage, celery and walnuts.
Tomato cups filled with cooked
diced carrots, white turnip and string
' Cooked white string beans and as
paragus laid through thick rings of
Suggestions for cooked tomatoes

Rings of tomato saute with diced
eggplant aaute arranged in layers

cheese and baked.

Porch Sandwich Rings of tomato

seasoned, grilled on crackers; sardines
may be added to this.
Olive and walnut meats in chilled
tomato aspic as individual salads; to

Ripeness Gives Flavor.
August is the month when the first
early tomatoes are in their prime. The
tomato, likd other vegetables, does
not develop its perfect flavor until
perfectly mature and ripe. It needs
the hot sun to transform the green
cellulose into ruby lusciousness. Un
less fully ripe the cross sections of the
pulp are tough and sometimes bitter.
For baking especially the tomato must
be so ripe that in about twenty min
utes it can be grilled or scalloped.
Too long cooking makes it dark and
separates the pulp and juice, leaving
the skin as a distinct and unpleasant
feature. For all scalloped dishes the
tomato should not be peeled, other
wise it will lose its shape. But for
salad dishes the tomatoes should be
dropped into boiling water, skinned
quickly with a silver fruit knife and
then placed to chill.
Since the tomato possesses such an
excess of natural acid, care must be

used when combining it with milk.
I Uncooked milk should never be used,
but the milk heated or made in a
i cream sauce first and then added. The
j helpful pinch of soda should be added
I to a cream sauce which is combined
with tomatoes. Cream curdles less
easily than milk because it has more
fat or less casein or thick part of
milk. Canned and evaporated milk
when diluted gives even better re
sults than fresh milk, while fresh
cream thinned is the ideal to combine
with any tomato dish.
Dressinga and Mayonnaise.
Owing to its luscious and flavoring
qualities the tomato is specially adapt
ed to use with oil dressings either of
the French or mayonnaise types. The
so-called "boiled dressing does not
go well. In making a French dress
ing lessen the amount of vinegar be
cause of the natural acid in the to
mato itself, and by adding different
seasonings, such as a few celery setd,
crushed mint leaf, garlic, sweet mar
joram or otlier herbs, even plain
sliced tomatoes will have variety. By
all means avoid that unnecessarily
common dressing, sugar, vinegar and
oil heavily mixed and poured over
the inevitable three rings of tomato.
Instead of using the slices in the
flat way, pyramid them, placing some
of the lettuce leaves between. Or cut
a small whole tomato into eight sec
tions, or "petals," like an organ ge,
to vary the monotony of the slice.
Or use the same sectional pieces as
decorations around platters of cold
meat. The small, perfectly shaped to
matoes are, of course, more suitable
for individual cup salads. Moderately
large are best for baking and the larg
est size for any of the grilled or
aauted dishes. Philadelphia Ledger.
, BY JANE M'LEAN.
Of course I might have married
Jack. There was really just one rea
son why I didn't, and that was be
cause I didn't love him, and there is
all the difference in the world be
tween the right and the wrong man.
Jack was the type of admirer that
always makes a good showing. Every
girl knows at least one man like him.
She likes to introduce him to her
friends, as much as to say:
. "Yes, girls, take a good look, but
no trespassing,' because he's mine."
Jack was distinguished looking. His
clothes were always just the right
thing. He owned a Stunning racer,
and he certainly knew how to amuse
a girl. I always felt beautifully dis
posed of, as though I couldn't have
thought of another thing to do for
myself. (And yet Jack wasn't fussy,
just dependable, and oh how he did
bolster up mypride.
Of course, I said no when he asked
me. Something inside of me said,
"Don't do it." Yesterday I met Jack's
wife, and now I think I know what
kind of a wife I might have been if
I had married Jack.
"How do you do, Miss Page?" she
said languidly. "Jack has spoken of
you so often. Isn't it hot? I don't
see how you can keep so cool."
Jack's wife was smartly dressed,
but she did look as though living up
to Jack made her breathless. I had
on tennis shoes and a white skirt and
waist. Of course, my mustard-colored
sport hat was becoming, but
otherwise I looked like any other
' "Howis Jack?" I asked. "I haven't
seen him since you came back from
"I don't see much of Jack myself,"
the wife responded. "He has so many
friends, you know, and we have so
many social engagements to keeft,up.
and altogether life is just one grand
"Don't you have time to make
love?" I asked audaciously. And then
I was sorry I had spoken, because
Mrs. Jack flushed uncomfortably and
laughed uncertainly and said:
"I thought everyone finished that
up during the honeymoon."
"Of course," I responded quickly,
although I knew. I was telling the
biggest fib I had ever told in my life.
And then to change the subject. 1
saidr "Don't you play tennis?"
"I did before I was married," Jack's
wife responded, "but one gets so hot.
and Jack hates women to look hot
He says they're never ornamental
when their noses are shiny."
Our conversation began to sound
like a rehearsal of Jack's likes and
dislikes. Jack's wife seemed to be
rather a plastic individual and I be
gan to wonder if Jack had changed.
"I suppose you had a splendid time
abroad, ! said enthusiastically.
"Oh, yes," was the answer, "only
it was tiresome. The minute we
reached a spot where I wanted to
stop for a few days, Jack wanted to
move on.- He likes only the excite
ment of travel, and the beauty of the
scenery makes no difference at all to
I wanted to say, "But you were
just married, I should think it would
be wonderful just to be together."
But, of course, I didn't. Afterward
I heard that Jack's wife had been
quite "fun" before she was married.
Then, being married to Jack must
have made Ul the difference.
I wonder if life would have been
the same for me if I had married Jack
myself. Perhaps not, because I am
not very easily influenced, but 1
should have been perfectly miserable
getting used to it all.
