i A woman writing in the March
Woman' Home Companion asks
men to atop scolding her sex and look
to their own faults.
"I'd like to see 'a count taken of
the men who've given up eating but
ter and sweets to help win this war
and the women who have given up
these two things! It might check
some of these persistent scolders of
the American housewife and her pa
triotism. Only a few days ago a
friend of mine said to me: 'It would
all be so easy if it were not for Ar

desserts, and he wants to have steak

and bacon every morning for break
fast I can't make him see that it does
matter, even if we have the money to
buy these things. I try to tell him
that it's a matter of honor not to eat
them all the time, so that there'll be
enough to go around for everybody.
But he only acts peevish and wants to

"I mean cook the meat or do some
"Why not?" queried mother.
"Would yju like to try tonight?"
"What are we going to have?" was
Harriet Ruth's next question "I hope
it is something I specially like."
"Would hamburger cakes and
browned parsnips suit your ladyship?"
laughed mother. '
"O, goodly I Let me get the recipe
"I don't believe I have recipe cards
for those dishes, because they are
rather easily prepared. Get paper and
pencil to take down a few simple di
rections. You can remember most ot
what you are to do."
"You have helped me often enough
with vegetables to know exactly what
to do first," mother went on.
"Yes, I know; I wash and scrape
the parsnips, but what next?"
"Cut them into slices about an inch
thick and cook in boiling salted water
till tender. All vegetables should be

will take a longer or a shorter time

vegetable they 'are cooking. When
the parsnips are done, drain them,
keeping the water for the soup I in
tend to make tomorrow."
"But you haven't told me how to
brown them, mother."
"Not quite so fast, daughter. Are
you sure of all that I have told you?"
"Yes, I am just let me write down
the time of cooking."
"To brown the parsnips, put them
into the pan in which the hamburger
cakes are cooked and turn them till
they are a nice even brown. If there
is not enongh fat in the pan to keep
the parsnips from burning, add a little
"I know something about making
the meat cakes, mother. Don't you
work the meat into flat cakes and
then cook it real fast?"
"That is the way I like to cook
hamburger cakes. There are still peo
ple who add different things to the
meat and then cook it in a lot of fat,
but they don't know how nearly like
a good beefsteak hamburger, may be
prepared. Do not even add alt to the
meat until it is done, for salt tough
ens meat if it is added before the end
of the cooking.
"Have the skillet very hot and
grease it with a piece of suet held on
the end of a fork. Put in the meat
cakes, and turn very frequently. Let
them brown quickly to sear or harden
the outside. This searing keeps the
juices in. Five minutes is long enough
to cook the cakes as we all like them
rare, but if we wanted them well
done, you could .cook them with a
high flame for five minutes, then
lower the flame and cook three or
five minutes longer. Just before re
moving from the fire salt on one side,
put the cakes on a hot platter, salted
siae a own, ana salt me oiner siae.
Put the olatter where it will keep
hot, turn the parsnips into the skillet,
brown them, then put the browned
slices on the platter around the meat
just before serving."
"Shall 1 make the platter look
pretty with some parsley?"
"That's a good idea, only don't
put too much parsley on, just two
or three sprays, not very large ones
"When shall I start the things,
"Let's see it will take about 10
minutes to prepare the parsnips and
at least IS minutes to cook them.
Then about 10 minutes more to pre
pare and cook the hamburger cakes,
and another 10 minutes to brown the
parsnips and get them on the platter.
That is 45 minues altogether, and
we want to serve at 6:30. You ought
to start at a quarter of six' at the
latest, and remember it is always a
good plan for a new cook to allow
extra five minutes for good measure.
You know how they always say a
new cook can't serve anything on
time. Let's surprise father and sit
down at 6:30 o'clock as usual."

Here are seven splendid stories by
the author of "Dumb-Bell of Brook

is the story of the great musician
