Asparagus From Far West
: Appears on Omaha Market
' Fresh asparagus was added to the
new things on the Omaha markets
this week. It is excellent and comes
from California. It costs about as
much as chocolates 65 cents a pound.
Cauliflower is remarkably fine just
now and in the last week the price
has come down somewhat. Extra
fine heads are offered at 12 to 15 cents
each. Cabbage is of fine, solid qual
ity and the price continues down to
the lines of economy.
Radishes and lettuce grown "near
Omaha are now on hand. Of course,
they are protected from the weather
when necessary, but they have the
taste of the real open-air spring vege
table. Potatoes continue at their former
economical prices, and it is pleasant
Government Tells How
To Use New War Flours
The new flours are soon to be ready
i for housewives. Maybe the grocer
hasn't them in stock yet but he will
'have, -so keep on asking for them!
Here are some suggestions for using
them for the United States Food ad
ministration: Honey Cake (Rice Flour).
l-t cup glucose. ' 2 cups pastry flour.
1-J cup honey. t teaspoom baking
H cup fat. powder.
cup water. i eggs.
1 cup rice flour. 1 teaspoon vanilla.
The glucose must be warm so that
it will mix. Add to it the honey and
fat; beat well Add alternately wa
iter and flour sifted with baking
! powder, then add beaten eggs and
vanilla. Bake in three layers.

together; cut the fcit into the flour

handling as little as possible. Chill
until ready to roll.

4 cups boiling; water. 2 eggs.
1 teaspoon salt. 2 tablespoons flrlp-
1 cup barley meal. pings.
Add barley meal to boiling salted
water, stirring constantly. Cook in a
double boiler one hour. Cool and
add well beaten eggs and fat. Turn
into an oiled dish and bake in a mod
erate oven three-fourths of an hour.
Rye and Corn Flour Biscuit.
1 eup rye flour, 2 tablespoons shorten-
1 cup corn flour. ing.
1 teaspoon salt. cup milk.
Mix and sift dry ingredients. Add
fat, cutting it in with a knife. Add
milk gradually until mixture is soft
and spongy. Turn onto a slightly
floured board and roll lightly until a
uniform thickness, about one-half
inch. Cut with a floured biscuit cut
ter, place on a greased tin and bake
for 12 or 15 minutes in a quick oven.
Save Fuel in Cooking
An excellent way to save fuel is
not to use it. Fresh or canned fruits
for desserts in place of cakes and
pies; salads, nuts, raisins, milk,
cheese, punches, junkets, and gela
tins are uncooked foods that we can
use constantly. Foods that require
simply to be heated but need no long
period of cooking may be used often.
Milk soups, cocoa, custards, apple
sauce, eggs, broiled fish and tender
meats also come in this class. If the
oven has to be used for one dish, then
plan to cook the whole meal in it.
If a roast of meat is on the menu,
the potatoes may be roasted in the
same pan, scalloped vegetables may
be baked, a loaf of quick war bread
may be made, and a dessert that can
be cooked in the oven at the same
time. Ovens that can be set over a
gas burner do excellent work for a
Camouflage Child's Milk
Nothing can take the place of milk
in the child's diet. When they tire of
it, as they often do, leave it off en
tirely for a few days if necessary, and
then begin to give it to them in a dif
ferent form. They do not have to
drink it raw. It will nourish them
if it is disguised by cooking, or extra
flavor. Milk soups, milk toast, cereal
made with milk in place of water, cus
tards and simple desserts made with
milk are all good for children. They
will eat junket colored pink that they
would not touch if it were left white,
and often the addition of a few grains
of sugar and four drops of vanilla to
a glass of milk makes it attractive to

Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Take Your Opportunity.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I atn,17, and have
been employed as a stenographer for about
one year. During this time I have met a
salesman whom I love, but as my salary
Is not very large, my parents want me
to leave this place for a better one, but on
account of this man I hate to leave. He has
never mentioned that he loves m.e although
his actions show it which makes it all the
harder for me to forget him.
What would you do If you were In my
Don't sacrifice your chances for the
sake fit a little romance which will prob
ably come to nothing. Tou are young, my
dear, and are Idealizing a man you might
not like one bit If you came to know him.
He may be engaged, married out of your
reach entirely. It he really loves you and
Is free to tell you so( leaving the place
where he works will not cut you off from
him at all. Just the fact that he has to
make a little effort to see you might
easily waken a man who really cared for
you to the knowledge of his own feelings.
By all means go to the better position. Tou
owe that to your parents and to yourself
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I am
engaged to a young man whom I love very
dearly, but like you advice on the follow
ing: He Is a very clean, moral young man
and everyone seems to like him, but I never
like to go out to dinner any place with
him because he does little things to make
me uncomfortable. For Instance, he leaves
his spoon in his cup when he drinks and
don't keep his knife and fork on his plate,
and little things like that
He also Isn't careful about his English
and I know, though, that he knows better
than to say such things as "I have did,"
but he Isn't careful about it.
Now what can I do? I am afraid I
might hurt his feelings If I said anything
to him. and I wouldn't want to tell him
myself anyway. Could you help me? I will
be very grateful to you if you can.
Since you expect to marry this young
man I should speak to him about his care
lessness. You can do It in a tactful way
that will not hurt his feelings, I am sure.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: There
are four of us girls. that are in love with
one fellow. This young man is IS years old
and Is tall and handsome and we love him
dearly. The girl he love best Is very
pretty and has pretty brown eyes, rosy
cheeks and curly chestnut hair. When this
boy talks to her we feel Jealous and Just
now we are almost brokenhearted because
his attentions toward her are more pro
nounced. He always said to me (Mollle)
that he loved me the best of all, but he
doesn't show it. He said that to all the
others. What should we do to stop his go
Ing with other girls and going with us?
Please help us In thjs trouble through the
Omaha Bee and oblige. Yours truly,
THREE FORLORN ANXIOUS GIRLS.
You are all too young to think about love.
Walt a few years and you will wonder what
you could have seen In this boy.
Council Bluffs, la. Dear Miss Fairfax:
I don't know if you will remember me or
not, but I am Mayme. I wrote to you when
Mr. Farmer had his letter in. I went away
after that and I often wonder if he found
his ideal girl. I was sorry I didn't get to
see the paper, but I was a long, long ways
from home, and I couldn't get The Omaha
Bee. I do hope the poor boy or man, which
ever he may be, had good luck. Well, Miss
Fairfax, I suppose you will think I am
Just as silly as the rest, but I Just got
back and I was anxious to hear what kind
of luck Mr. Farmer man had. As ever,

mavh he'd come to touch VOU for
a loan or to sell you some phony
Mr. Jenkins sent word that he was
in an important conference and could
see no one. Then he turned to me
and spoke tersely, aggressively:
"When an office boy comes in and
reports that a man looks seedy and
shiftless and down and out, I don't
want him in my organization."
"Is it fair to judge that way? May
be this is a splendid man who has
been forced out of work, Do you
think it's humane to turn him away
because a 14-year-old youngster says
he looks seedy? Perhaps he needed
irnii- nertmne hp bad something VOU
need." I asked so earnestly that Mr.
Jenkins sat back then and there and
gave me what lie called "Chautauqua
Lecture No. 8342."
"Business isn't a social settlement
or a charity fair," said he. "And it

Down and Out.
"Fifteen years ago I was down and
out. I went after a position for six
months and pieced in with such jobs
as dishwashing at cafeterias and shov
eling snow. I had to take any cheap
little means of earning a few cents
in order to avoid starving to death.
Fate seemed dead against me. I got
more and more unshaven and un
shorn. My feet were not far sepa
rated from the cold ground. And the
raggeder I got, the worse the treat
ment I got when I went looking for

how unfair it is to shut a man off
from a job because he's shabby?'
"No, it doesn't. I was shabby
mentally, too, shiftless, down and
out. I looked the part of a failure
and a vagrant. I looked like a
tramp, I felt like a tramp, I got
treated like a tramp. And then
one day I woke up to the fact that
a man isn't likely to be much better
than he looks.
"So I marched myself down to a
big charitable organization, put my
pride in my pocket and offered to do
a month's work for a decent outfit
of clothes. They gave me a place to
sleep and two square meals a day,
and I worked at everything from
packing cases of old ' clothes to
driving wagon loads of poor children

wl " ,
I m rtf Cltldce
When I fomc Jntrt an nffir and
am greeted by a rouged little stenog
rapher, who looks as if she belonged
to a musical comedy chorus, I in
stinctively feel that I am in a place
lacking in either efficiency, dignity,
moral tone or all three. When I am
greeted by a neat, well-tailored, blue
serge clad clerk I naturally feel the
waves of efficiency and bssiness-like
order and a decorum that are part of
the atmosphere of the place.
Dressed for Business.
Dressing for business is part of the
equipment for business success. Neat,
clean, plain, dark clothes with a touch
of ecru or gray or white are most
practical for the business woman.
Too many girls think that a bit of
color to brighten them up is going
to make them more attractive. Being
overemphasized by blue glass beads
and a purple veil and pale gray suede
shoes isn't "attractive" in the right
way, however. The glass beads look
cheap and dingy, the purple flunts it
self, the light shoes become soiled.
There is a suggestion of soil which
attaches itself to the wearer. Busi
ness neels a uniform that shall fit
quietly into an atmosphere of work.
No more than lie cart artord to go
unpressed, unshaven or spotted as to
clothes can a man afford to go dressed
in conspicuous black and white checks
showing yellow shoes and vivid scar
let ties. And certainly of all places
where "what's sauce for the goose
is sauce for the gander," the business
world most completely is one where
ivh-it io neatness and trimness and
common sense in man's dress is also
pleasantly atractive, decently pleasing
and efficient looking for women.
Your appearance is your letter of
introduction and you might as well
make it a letter of recommendation,
