Thinly veiled censure of Omaha
and its people seems to be the rule
with lecturers from elsewhere who
have been imported recently to "up-
lift" local wanderers in search of
truth in art. ' ;

"He made me feel as if 1 were a
carnivorous cannibal because I eat
meat occasionally," wailed a sweet
young thing. v
Dr. Powys spoke of his "cuttivawd
Omaha audience," and then gave the
- impression that we had sheep run
ning about wild on the street when
he asked "How could we pass sheep
on the street without blushing for the
'manner in, which we slaughter them?"
But Dr. Powys' most scathinir re
buke came near the close of his lec
ture when he saw several women
reach for their hats. "And while you
are putting on your hats " the words
came with biting emphasis, then he'
continued with a few more finishing

The housewife who is careful both
of her time and her money will find
both saved to some extent by plan
ning her menus seversT days or 'a
week in advance, she will tind her
self relieved of the daily problem
"What shall I have for dinner?" and
he can do her ordering more satis
factorily. At least the dinner menus
should be so planned and the experi
enced housewife will know quite accu
rately what left-overs she can count
on from each dinner for the following
day s luncneon.
1'or some of use the breakfast menu
is practically standardized. ,The sim
plest possible menu is truit, toast or
some other form of bread and a bev
erage' in some houses a cereal is add
ed, or eggs, or both. In a menu such
as indicated the special fuel foods are
the toast, butter and cereal; the min
eral foods the fruit and eggs and
milk or cream on the cereal: the pro
tein, the milk or cream and eggs. In
a household where the men will do
hard physical labor during the day
and will have a cold lunch, the addi
tion of meat and potato to the menu
?;ives extra protein and extra fuel
ood. I have not mentioned the food
value of the beverage, for that is so
dependent on the kind served. Tea
and coffee add no food value except
from the cream and sugar used with
them; milk, cocoa and chocolate are
valuable foods. - -
The luncheon menu in its simplest
form consists of a
Hot dleh or heavy aalad
Bread and butter
To which menu we may add a
soup, cold meat, a second hot dish
or a dessert. One or more of these
may be added. The hot dish may be
eggs in some form, potatoes, a
creamed or scalloped vegetable, mac
aroni and cheese, or any made dish of
ten-over meat, ine saiaa may oe po
tato, egg, fish, cheese or meat or a
light salad with a hot main dish. A
cream soup is a good luncheon dish
when only two or three other foods
are served. In any luncheon the main
dish may or may not contain much

By GARRETT P. SERVISS.
As the sun "runs lower" with the
approach of winter in our hemisphere,
the full moon, as a partial compensa
tion, runs higher.! his is one of na
ture's adjustments which some per
sons regard as having been made ex
pressly for the benefit of the earth's
The mechanism of the thing is very
simple: the moon cannot be1 full, i. e.,
have its whole earthward face illumi
nated, except when it is on the side of
the earth opposite to the sun, and
flavor. The practice of beginning a
duiner with soup is a good one, for
though we know a clear soup has lit
tle food value, it may stimulate appe
tite, and does start the flow of the
digestive juices. When serving twp
vegetables it is well to choose one
which is starchy, as potatoes or sweet
potatoes, and a green vegetable, such
as peas or cabbage. ..The salad should
be of plain lettuce or of fruit or of
vegetables. For ordianry occasions
rich puddings should be avoided un
less tha main course is light, or small
portions only should be served.
There is a real art in putting to
gether foods which give a goo(l blend
of flavors as well as a sensible com
bination of foodstuffs. . It is permis
sible from a dietary standpoint to
serve cream of tomato soup and toma
to salad at luncheon, but it is monoto
nous. We do not want potatoes and
rice at the same time, partly because
both have similar flavor and texture.
Certain food combinations are so fa
miliar to us that they are a habit.
Many of them are both nutritious and
artistic combinations, such as

A satisfactory menu is one that con

prepared without an undue amount of
exertion on the part of the housewife.

Thus, to a certain extent, our short
and relatively dim winter days are
made up for by long and compara
tively bright winter nights. The man
tle of snow covering thi ground in
high northern latitudes reflects the
winter splendor of the moon, so that
even meteorology aids the compensa
Except for the chill of the air there
is no season so favorable as winter
for the study of the wonders of the
moon. Next to a knowledge of the
stars I would put a knowledge of the
geography" of the moon. There is a
little world, more than 2,000 miles in
diameter, placed Tight at our door,
and showing even to the naked eye
the principal features of its topogra
phy a9 clearly as we can see the geo
graphical markings on a school globe.
You put such a globe one foot in
diameter at a distance from the eye of
about 114 feet and it will look just as
large as the full moon.' You will see
its pictured continents and oceans
very much as you see the dark plains
and bright mountainous regions on
the moon, except that they will not
appear so distinct unless they are
very strongly printed.
Maps-snd photographs of the moon
can now be obtained on which the
entire visible surface of the lunar
world is represented with an accuracy
which, in some respects, is still un
attainable in maps of ihe earth. We
cannot look at the earth all at one
view as we can at the moon, so that
we have no means of directly compar
ing our earth maps with the actual
object represented, as we have in the
case of the moon. We can make a
direct portrait of the moon, . 1 ;
A painter who dwelt on the face of
his sitter like a microscopic insect,
able to see only minute portions of it
at a time, and forced to connect the
various parts by measurements of dis
tances and angles before he could
combine them into an idealized whole,
would be in the situation of the map
maker," or globe-maker, who under
takes to make a representation or a
model of the earth on which he lives.
To see the rouncLmoon in the sky
is to have a visual, though inferential,
proof of the rotundity of the earth.
Vnere before you is an actual world,
"hung : upon nothing," with empty
space all around it. You rake your
telescope and look dqwn upon the
tops of its lofty peaks, or see their
black shadows projected across the
neighboring plains. I do not know of
any spectacle so thrilling as that.
The principal features of the moon
are easily seen without a telescope.

ian you will see -near the bottom of
its disk, a glowing spot from which
whitish streaks radiate in a manner
that recalls the appearance of the pip
of an orange from which the peel has
been stripped off. That spot is the
huge crater ring called "Tycho." All
around it the face of the moon is
bright, because it is broken by rugged
mountains and craters which scatter
the sunbeams in all directions.
On the left-hand side df the moon
you will notice a great, irregular, dark
expanse, with bright points in it. This
is called the "Oceanus Procellarum"'
(Ocean -of Tempests). :The dark
rounded patch at its southeast end is
the "Mare Humorum" (Sea of Hu
mors). Above jnd to the right of that
is the "Mare Nubium" (Sea of
Clouds). In the upper part of the
eastern half of : the moon is a large
shadowy .expanse, the "Mare Imbri
um". (Sea. of Rains). '
To the right of that, separated by a
crinkling bright line (the "Appenine
mountains") is the oval "Mare Seren
itatis" (Sea of Serenity). Southwest
of this appears the "Mare Tranquil
litatis"' (Sea of Tranquillity), below
which, hang the irregular "Mare Fe
cunditatis", and "Mare Nectaris." A
distinct .dark oval is , made by the
"Mare ' Vaporum" (Sea of Vapors).
And between the Mare Nubium and
the Mare Imbrium is the immense
crater ring "Copernicus."
The dark patch almost in the center
of the moon, east of the lower part of
the Appenine mountains, is the "Mare
Vaporuin" (Sea of Vapqrs). Of course
the so-called seas have no water.
They got their names before the
waterless condition of the moon was
known. But they may possibly be an
cient sea bottoms. Notice the curious
I profile of a woman's face, the chin
and nose resting on the Mare Nubium.
