, .Harriet Ruth's Cooking
4 Lesson
' Harriet Ruth Makes the Dessert,
r Harriet Ruth came home one after
noon to find mother ruhing around in
' the kitchen. Unexpected company
Jrom out of town had arrived and
mother had to- "piece out" what she
had originally planned. She had man
aged everything but the dessert and
she knew the half of a sponge cake
would never serve the whole num
ber. . ' - , , .
"Mother, let. me make something,
taid Harriet Ruth. '
"Oh, my dear," said mother. "Usu
ally I'm" glad of your help, but just
now I'm afraid I'm in too much of a
flurry." J . v
Harriet Ruth looked hurt. "You
never said that ' before, mother. I
thought I really helped you."
"You do, dear," mother said, ".but "
Mother stopped, then smiled sudden
ly., "I have it- just the thing we need."
She hesitated a minute. "It's a pretty
big job lor a little arm and if you
get tiredVyou call me, will you? Let's
have strawberry fluff on our sponge
cake. It's easy to put together, but it
does take time and. strength."
"Do you mean that pretty pink stuff
we had once, a long time ago, mother?
I just love it How shall I make it?"
- "Get a large bowl and a wire egg
beater. Put into the bowl one egg
white, unbeaten, a few grains of salt,
one-fourth cup sugar and 14 large
strawberries, crushed. Beat steadily,
- but' cot vigorously, for 20 minutes.
.Why don't you to out on the back
porch, where it'a cooler? Mind, now,
yon call me if yon get tired."
v Co-Operation
Mis. Gross will be very glad to
receive suggestions for the home
economics column or to answer, as
far as she is able, any questions
that her readers may ask.
, "Oh, I won't get tired mother. My
arm is real strong."
Alter 10 minutes mother slipped out
to the porch to see how things were
progiessing., Dorothy, the next door
neighbor, had come over and the little
girls 'took iurns beating the fluff. It
was not nearly stiff yet, but had
swelled jup.
"Is it all right, mother? Will it ever
get stiff?" ,
"Oh, yes, just have patience. It al
ways takes the full 20 minutes."
Before Harriet Ruth sat down to
dinner, she brought the sherbet
glasses into the pantry and put a
square of sponge cake in each. he
had a bowl of slightly crushed and
sugared strawberries in the icebox,
and a smalt saucedish of large whole
berries. She put the bowl of straw
berry fluff into the icebox also. '
While mother removed the dishes
froni the table before the dessert Har.
riet Ruth slipped into the pantry. She
put a spoonful of crushed strawberries
onto the square of cake in the sherbet
glass, theh a heaping spoonful of the
strawberry fluff and topped the whole
with a large berry.
When the company admired the
pretty dessert, mother smiled at Har
riet Ruth and said, "My small daugh
ter prepared it." ' .

Berry season in Omaha is in; full

known representatives of the berry
family. Included among tnese are
strawberries, raspberries, gooseber
ries, blackberries and bananas. Maybe
you didn't know that the banana is a
berry. But it is at least in botany.
It has a pulpy pericarp and, there
fore, it is a berry. '
Bananas have been on the market,
of course, all winter and are well up
in the luxury class, selling around
10 cents a pound, which means 40
cents a dozen, for the kind that used
to cost IS cents. ; The high price of
ocean freights caused by the war is

Mas Life Passed You By 1
On with the search for charml We
all want it; the consciousness that we
don't possess it makes each and every
non-factinator miserable.
The other day I attended a, tea
where were gathered together several
celebrities,' maculine and feminine, a
few ordinary folks and one or two
pretty little moving picture actresses.
Into the gathering came one of Amer
ica's foremost woman writers. She
was dressed in a suit that belonged
to the past spring not to the com
ing winter her haf was of straw in
stead of velvet And the woman her
self was thoroughly dowdy and unat
tractive looking. She was so con
scious of her work-a-day clothes and
her lack of physical attractiveness, in
contrast with the youth and beauty
flowering all around her that she was
miserable, awkward .and utterly dull.
Her really brilliant and charming
mind got all clouded over by terrified
sejf-consciousness; and the self-consciousness
was based on the date of
her clothes and the dustiness and
general lack of freshness that dis
torted her from head to foot.
"Oh, I didn't know there were go
ing to be a lot of people herd I've
come straight from work without
brushing or washing, or getting ready
for all these folks. I just thought
you and I were going to be alone,
dear I" she cried to the hostess.
And if she reads this article and
feels a little hurt at me for writing it
that won't hurt, her a bit I Why
hc lid any of us go to a friend we
i'ovi in dusty, unbrushed clothes or
locking so shabby and unattractive
that we cannot be gracious to the
people we meet in her home?
Clothes do play an important part in
transforming a stupid, unattractive
girl into a beautiful one. Please no
tice exactly what the fairy godmother
did for Cinderella.
Not Vanity.
I am not advocating vanity or con
ceitboth interfere with charm. I
am just advocating the careful groom
ing, the sensfJe selection of clothes,
the attractive arrangement -of your
personal background and atmosphere
that cannot be managed in public.
Then when you come out ir publi:
you know that your hairpins are in
placrand your collar is clean and you
don't have to spend your whole eve
ning thinking about yourself.
Who hasn't pitied the self-conscious,
unhappy looking man whose
brown oxfords and blue serge busi
ness suit and green tie stood out in
a dinner-coated assembly. If the
gentlemen of the oxfords and the
green tie is 99 per cent charming he
may rise above his clothes; but the
chances are that they will swamp him.
"The unlit lamp, the ungirt loin,"
are Browning's symbol of unprepar
edness. Well, you have 'to beteady
for happiness when it comes ready
and waiting or it will pass you by.
Charm js partly physical, partly
spiritual and partly mental. It is to
some extent a gift of the fairies and,
in a degree, a thing you actually go
out and get a thing you make to or
der. Life has a way of slipping by the
folks who are colorless, unattractive,
stupid, boresonre or so restless .and
incapable of staying "put" that when
opportunity rings the door bell they
re never home to hear the summons.
Most of us have a stupid way of
thinking that life owes us our desires,
so we trot around looking so unat
tractive that life mistakes us for flot
sam and jetsam instead of for real
ships, capable of carrying a cargo. If
we don't err in that direction fit may
make the blunder of sitting with fold
ed hands, waiting for the tide to carry
rich cargo right up into the little
backwater where e have anchored.
It won't.
Cultivate Charm.
The man or woman who makes up
his or her mind what he or she wants
and then goes after it gets it. Given
someone a strong soul wants to at
tract, he or she doesn't talk the be
loved to death, doesn't display his or
her nature as restless, pleasure-seek-

The Finish
Out of that wonderful world where God is,
The Lords of Karma the path have whovyi.
And given- us lessons to learn in bodies
Oh, many the bodies our souls have known 1
In gem, and blossom, and sentient being,
In dull cave dweller and thinking man,
All things knowing, and feeling, and seeing
This is the purpose and this the plan.
Forms are fashioned in wide world places
From flame. and ether and common clay;
While egos wait in the high star spaces
'Till the call shall come, which they must obey.
Oh, never a wish or a hope lies hidden
Of good or evil in any heart
But back to earth shall the soul be bidden
To live out its longing, and play its part
Grief and pleasure and joy and sorrow,
Out of old sowings we gather them all
And the seed of today we shall harvest tomorrow,
' When our souls come back at the karmic call. -Over
and over the lesson learning,
Till, letter perfect, and meaning clear
Back on the spiral pathway turning
We carry the knowledge we gathered here.
The thought of that last journey back to Him
, When there is no more longing or desire
For anything but God left in my soul, ,
Shine in the distance like a great white flame
I think the way will lead through golden clouds
Skirting the shores of seas of amethyst
And winding gently upward; past old worlds,
Where body after body was outlives;
Past hells and heavens, where I had my day
With comrade Spirate from the lesser spheres
And paid my penalty for every sin '
And reaped reward for every act;
Past realms celestial and their singing hosts
(Where once I chanted with the cherubim)
Out into perfect silence. Suddenly
An all enveloping vast consciousness
Of long, long journeys finished; one more turn
Then glory, glory, glory infinite
And selfhood lost in being one with God.
The ray once more absorbed into the sun.
The cycle done. , ELLA VVHEELER WILCOX.

tilled with studle and simple pleasure and
not love affairs. Although you may think
your heart I broken, I assure you that you
will recover. By all means, do not let this
young man think that you care for him,
hut treat him as a friend, for his feeling
for you Is evidently Impersonal.

Food Value of Pineapple
Pineapple is wonderfully5 adaptable
in combining with other foods" and is
highly recommended by physicians for
throat trouble. Many have even found
it very helpfuLin stomach trouble..-.
In fact, the adaptability's"! the pine
aoole as a food is eaual to its de
licious flavor. Pineapple may be
served as a dessert or salad by it
self, or combined with other fruits,
will add zest to any fruIF salad. Pine
apple fritters are fast becoming pop
ular. The crushed or grated pine
apple, sold under the same reliable
name as the best canned'whole slice ,
is used in making pineapple pie is a
great favorite.
Tidbits, which are segments of the
sliced pineapple, are most satisfac
tory, in fruit cocktails and in salads.
