Getting dinner in a kitchenette
that suggests preparing a meal
quickly, doesn't it? For the grent
army of "kitchenetters" are also
a great army of busy people who
must have a quickly prepared simple
dinner if they are to have any at
all. They are the people who de
pend almost entirely on canned and
ready-cooked foods, plus steak ?nd
chops. Baking is done rarely, and
then' only on Saturdays or Sundays.
I suppose the chief problem is the
main dish. One does get tired of
the eternal chop and steak even if
the price is not prohibitive. In this
article I am suggesting some very
easily prepared main dishes, none of
which require more than 40 minutes
coolfing, most of them less. The
main dish is, after all, the big prob
lem. Some of the main dishes sug
gested below are especially good for
a kitchenette because they combine
meat or its substitute and vegetable.
The quantities are sufficient for two
or three people.

and slash criss-crosss with a knife.

Cook the macaroni in boiling
salted water till tender (usually 15
minutes), drain aild pour cold water
over. Make a sauce by melting fat,
adding flour, then milk, and stir
ring to boiling, being careful not to
brown. Put a layer of macaroni in
a greased baking dish, . then some
shrimp and chopped green pepper.
Fill the dish, making macaroni the
top layer, pour over the white sauce,
and covr,r with crumbs. N Bake in a

Cold. Snap Boosts Price

The snappy weather of the past
few days has had its effect upon the
various kinds of tnarket produce'

ward on eggs, butter, green vegeta
bles, etc. -
The best butter is now being
quoted at 70 cents to 2 cents per
pound; eggs of the strictly fresh va
riety, 68 cents to 70 cents per doz

lettuce from 5 cents to 10 cents per

a fine lot of spinach at 30 cents
Among the apples to be had are
some fine Brack Twigs and Roman

Winesaps at $3.
Oranges are quite plentiful at
prices ranging from 50 cents to 60
cents per dozen, lemons frm 35 cents
to 50 cents and grape fruit at
cents to 10 cents apiece.
Cranberries x are selling at fro.a
35 cents to 40 cents per quart.
The army of kitchentters and
small apartment dwellers is in
creasing every day. One would
imagine they were mobilizing to
defeat the labor problems or a
dozen other problems confront
ing the managers of large homes.
For this reason Miss Gross will
devote space, each Friday for a
time, to solving the difficulties
encountered by women who have
been accustcmed to large kitch
ens and business women who
have little time to spend in these
tiny apartments. Miss Gross will
be glad to receive suggestions or
to give such help as may be de
sired by the readers of this department.

(Peggy, asked by the Spirit of Safety
to guard Engineer Bill Carney of the
Sight Flyer, arouses him to action just
as tha train Is about to plunge Into an
other train standing sin a sidetrack.)
The Wrong Switch Light.
NUMBER 337 rocked and
swayed as its great driving
wheels, caught by the reverse.-
tried to hold back the heavy
Night Flyer. For a moment Peggy
thought it would jump from the
tracks, so tremendous was its
struggle' against the force of the
Peggy was astounded at this sud
den clash of strength. At one in
stant the fainting engineer had been
sending the great locomotive hurl
ing forward with all the power of
hundreds of racing hof ses, and in
the next, by an astonishing twist of
his skill, he had turned all this
mighty force into halting the rush
of the train. Which would win the
force of the rush, or the force put
forth to stop the rush? For a second
there seemed a doubt.
Then with a shriek, a grinding, a
jarring and a bumping, the Night
Flyer came to a stop with its cow
catcher just touching the rear plat
form of ,the standing train. Engi
neer Bill's quick action, prompted
by Peggy's alarm, had saved scores
Up ran the superintendent and
the conductor to, see what was the
matter. Bill, now wide awake and
alert, met them at the steps of the
"Go back and see if that switch
light is right," he shouted.
The superintendent and conductor
gave him one look, then raced back
along the train. Peggy, realizing
that something very important de
pended upon what they found at the
switch, flew after them.
The switchlight was burning
brightly, its green faced turned
down the main track.
"An open switch, and the light
showing green instead of red!" cried
"It was a deliberate attempt to
wreck the train. I knew Bill would
never riln by a red light," exclaimed
Peggy's snarp eyes saw a move
ment in the bushes near the switch.
"There's, a man hiding in the
bushes," she cried.
The superintendent and conduc
tor did not wait to see where Peg
gy's voice was coming from. They
leaped for the bushes and in a trice
they pulled out a man, an evil-looking
"I almost got him, and my gang
may get him yet," growled the
struggling prisoner and he men
tioned the name or the important
government official who was aboard
the train, hurrying to catch the boat

superintendent, as he and the con
ductor turned the foreigner over to
two husky brakemen. "If it

Peggv thrilled at this, for .lic
knew that it was her guardianship
of Bill which had enabled him to
save the train.
Bill was waiting on the engine
and he looked a lot beter.
"Hurry up and give me orders."
he cried. "I can still get the Night
Flyer through on time if you hus
tle." . The superintendent gave the or
ders, the Flyer backed out on the
main track, a man was left to look
after the switchlight, and the train
sped on its way. Fred, the fire
man, had hurt his leg in junjping

"Great Work Bill!" Cried the Super
intendent. and was taken aboard tfie train. In
his place the superintendent shov
eled coal, and he did it.with a skill
that showed he had not been pro
moted to his big job by anything
except hard work.
Bill grew better with every mile
as. No. 337 dashed along, making
up for lost time. When at last the
lights of the big city at the end of
the line loomed up ahead, the en
gineer was almost himself again,
and he was happy because the Night
Flyer had come through on time.
"Great work, Bill," cried the
superintendent. "You'll be reward
ed for this."
I owe it to my good fairy," de
clared Bill. "If it hadn't been for
her, I'd never been able to stick it
out. Thank you, good fairy," he
added, as Peggy blew out of the
Peggy was thrilled, with gladness
glad that she had such a thrilling
ride on the Night Flyer, and glad
that she had been the means oi'
bringing it through safely.
She never knew how she got
back in her cosy chair in the bay
window, but suddenly she awoke,
ud there she was safe and sund.
