In the days of old, before refrigera
tor cars and hot houses made it pos
sible to have fresh fruits and vege
tables the year round, people found
themselves in the spring time with
systems that needed "toning up."
Spring tonics were common, as was
the instinctive desire for the spring
greens. We now know that fruits
and vegetables are an absolute neces
sity, that canned goods may satisfy
the body needs to a great extent, but
that a certain amount of fresh food
is absolutely essential in an adequate
The need for spring greens is not
so great as it was in the days of
our grandmothers, but there are few
of us who can indulge in fresh foods
to our hearts content m the expensive
winter season. Hence we find our
selves, in the spring time, not in the
run-down condition of a hundred
years ago, but still needing to be
slightly "toned up."
Varieties of Greens.
We are all familiar with spinach,
and some of us know the dandelion
as an article of food. It is good only
in its young and tender stage, but at
that time it is an excellent rival for
spinach at no cost beyond the trouble
of gathering it. Less well known
greens include sorrel, beet tops,
lamb quarters and Swiss chard. Beet
tops are so nearly like spinach that
I doubt if one could tell the two
apart after they are cooked.
All these greens are valuable for
about the same purpose, namely, body
regulating, and all are prepared in
the same way. I once read a sugges
tion that if one did not like the flavor
of the wild greens so well- it was
possible to cook half spinach and half
the wild variety together.
Cooking of Greens.
A peck of spinach will serve eight
to 12 persons, depending on the size
portions desired. A peck may seem
like a huge quantity, but spinach has
the property of shrinking almost to
Since we value greens for their
of keeping our bodies in good con
dition, and since this mineral water
has the property of dissolving in
water, the ideal way of cooking
greens is in as little water as possible.
provided the greens are young and
tender. In using old plants, it is
sometimes necessary to boil in rather
large quantities of water.
Greens may be steamed; or boiled
without any water except that which
is left on the leaves after thorough
washing. The latter way is very sat
isfactory. Before serving, drain, cut
across many times, and season with
salt, pepper and fat. Butter, butter
substitute, or bacon fat may be used.
Some people like the addition of vine
gar, and the usual garnish is slices of
hard boiled egg.

The Woman With a Past Dare
a Man Marry to Reform Her ?
i - : ii
I Personals "
3y BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
"Dare a man risk marrying a wo
man to reform her? Will a woman
with a black record back of her
ever make a good wife? Can a wo
man who has been bad ever change
and make good?" These are some
of the questions which men fre
quently ask me.
I should like to answer "Of
course." And let it go at that. I
like the idea of giving every human
being a chance, of judging people
by the flicker of good in them, even
though it lights up a swamp of
slimy ugliness. But that will not
I don't believe in marrying a man
to reform him, and so I cannot con
scientiously uphold the idea of mar
rying a woman to reform her. When
A marries B to reform B it is almost
a foregone conclusion that it won't
When B marries to reform A the
story is very different If the long
ing to be worthy of A, to be a fit
mate for A, to live out the rest of
life as a decent, honorable partner
and beloved of A, is sufficiently im
pelling to make B conquer the evil
self and lift the good self then I
say to A, you have a blessed influ
ence on B, and the new B that is
made through you will be a splen
did mate (this with as much assur
ance as anything can be said of hu
man nature 1) so go ahead, and may
you both be blessed.
Nothing that any human being does
through ignorance or poor judgment
or a moment of weakness can be
made to count against him finally if
he is capable of rising above his own
blunderings. If a sinner repents the
tragedy is remembering the ugly
things and trying to get away from
them. The strength and courage
which makes the blunderer or the
evildoer face life squarely, be honest
about the past wrongs and determ
ined about the future good, are more
admirable than those who have never
blundered or been tempted can
Anyone who raises above an evil
self, slays it and becomes good and
strong is magnificent. If he does it
because of his own consciousness of
right and longing for right, he is
twice admirable. But even if he does
it to be worthy of pride, love, happi
ness or social recognition, he is good.
The point of the whole thing is:
How sincere is the reformation?
When you marry a man or woman to
reform him or her, you are marrying
someone who promises to turn over
a new leaf. If the promise is sincerely
meant why shouldn't they turn over
the new leaf first and prove that the
reform is in their own souls a thing
they themselves pride, not, a conces
sion they make to you?
No, I don't believe in marrying a
drunkard, nor a convicted thief nor
a murderer, nor a woman of evil
habits. But I do believe that if such
a one turn away from evil and seek
good none of us has a right to re
fuse to accept him or her on the
basis of the present good.
Strength to Come Back.
Suppose that Mary has been lax.
Suppose she has been addicted to
drinking and smoking and the oer
mitting of cheap familarities suppose
even real degradation for Mary. Of
she is strong enough to come back
in spite of the fact that the forces of
society keep pushing her down deep

But society forgets something very
important. Some women are delivered
over to temptation by the very finest
things in their own nature. They love
and. give when they should withhold;
they sacrifice themselves through de
votion to someone else.
Then there is the woman who is
given over to evil by desperate need,
by ignorance, by all sorts of social
forces which she was not in the be
ginning equipped to fight.
We spend millions reclaiming des
erts. Why not then spend at least a
little understanding in reclaiming
those who are not "waste" but who
have let the springs and the fertile
goodness in their nature be swept over
by evil seeds. It isn't safe to marry
a woman in order to reform her, but
it is cruel to deny a woman who has
reformed her right to happiness.
