Psychology of Taste
Flavor and appearance of food are
very importaift factors to be consid
ered si 'planning family menus. We
spend an appalling amount of our
food money for flavor. You know also
that it is really the flavor of the food
yyi prepare that makes it poftular
with your family, ffhe cake of perfect
texture and even crust will dry up in
the cake box, while the cake of good
flavor that can't compare in these
points will disappear like magic. The
right flavor aids digestion in that it
starts certain gastric juices necessary
to digestion and best assimilation, of
It is a great waswof money to eat
during a heated discussion or jus
after an v. mental provocation. Thl
digestive organs seem to simply fold
up and quit work aj such times. The
food taken then isot correctly acted
upoit until mental Calm is resipred.
During the intervening period un
favorable chemical action has taken
place, the various foods being left to
themselves without the ben igiv in
fluence of the gastricJuices, andndi-
gestion develops, as well as a nutri
tive lost. ,
It is not only bad taste to settle all
family discussions and differences, at
the tablue, but as intimated, causes
useless expense for foods. Choose be
tween the meal and the discussion.

meal time has become a'habit The
home manager has a big problem
ahead.of her to change this destruc

The easiest way is-to introduce
some travel talk or start the members
of the family to telling stories. Meal

Many peat bogs are being worked

Dispersing a Crowd
"I have just come back from 43
hours' duty in Paris," writes an offi
cer in, a Highland regiment. My
servant and 1, borli in the kilt, were
buying some stuff outside a shop,, as .
one does in Paris, when a crowd ot
about 20 persons gathered round and
simply stared some amused, some
openmouthed and. some doubtless in
admiration. I tfas amused at first,
but it got a bit toojmucU of a good,
thing, and my servant, who is a fag,
said: 'Shall I hand round the hat,
"So not, thinking he would, I said,
yes, do,' and if he didn't whip off
his Balmoral and take it round per
