EVENING LEDGER-PHILADEEPHIA', THURSDAY, FEBBtJABY 18, 1916:
PRIZE SUGGESTIONS, HOUSEKEEPING HINTS AND SPRING FASHIONS FOR EVERY WOMiti
How He Spoils
The average man is nrmty convinced
thai tinagltig Is nu attribute entirely
peculiar to woman. In fact, a great many
men are strong In the belief that ecry
daughter of live la nt heart a born ting
ger. They regard the most angelically
Mspoed woman ni a sort of mnsciuernder
who la hiding her real, snappy disposition
tinder a thin vencer of charm and at
tractiveness. "Sho's only trying to catch a husband,"
they wilt say skeptically, "It Isn't In tho
nature of womankind to be so saccharine-
Tho man who talks In this way Is cer
tainly a born nagger himself. And It Is
qulto surprising to realize how many men
at e born naggers. They themselves would
bo most (surprised of all. If tho fact were
brought home to them. Tho pity Is that
women nrn loo backward In pointing out
The husband who nags la a person
Browing Just a little too prevalent of late
years. Ho doesn't realize how disagree
ablo he Is, of course. If It wcic pointed
out to him, ho would probably say that
It was ii free country, and that surely a
man had a right to express his opinion In
his own house.
But that Is Just where tho born naggor
makes a great mistake. No one has a
right to express an opinion If It Is going
to causa pain and unhapplncss to others.
Tho people who aro always bragging
about tho wonderful power of free speech
aro nearly alwaya sclllsli and thought
less. For freedom of speech too often
means the opportunity to bo rude and
overhearing In conduct and opinions.
Tho husband who Is alas seeking
to assert his authority In trifling, petty
ways Is a great trial to his wife. He will
como poking around tho kitchen at the
oddest times, upsetting the temper of the
cook, hindering cullnavy operations,
throwing the whole place Into a perfect
commotion, and all to no purpose what
ever. "Why on earth Isn't dinner ready?"
he will storm. "Here am I slaving ull
day long down In the city so that 1 may
have a decent, well-managed house, and
s. dinner waiting for me when I como
home at night and I get neither the
one nor the other. Disgraceful, I call It!
It's enough to drive a man to drink!"
For the bagging husband Is always a
bully, rest assured of that. He Is never
so happy as when he Is Intimidating some
feminine thing whom he considers weaker
Another curious fact about the nag
ging husband Is that he Is always quite
pleasant to outsiders. "What a perfectly
charming man Mr. So-and-So 1st" Is tho
general verdict. But ah! If outsiders only
know hint as his tired, bullied little wife
A Venturesome Tulip
SEVERAL tulip bulbs were burled last
fall deep down In a nice warm bed.
Around and under them was rich black
earth, over them warm straw and leaves
and sometimes even snow. So they felt
no cold winds and the Ico and sleet that
nipped tho trees and hedges couldn't
reach down to them.
Once In a while during tho long winter
they wakened and said a word of greet
ing to eacn other, but most of the time
they simply dozed and rested, getting
strength for the quick growth of the

The ground began to set moist and
warm. Instead of hard and cold, and the
tulips began to wake up.
"Good morning," said the one w'no
would some day be yellow, "when will
you climb up to the sunshine with me?"
"I will some time," said the tulip who
-would be -white, "but I'm not In a hurry.
I am very comfortable here."
"I'll so with you In a few days," said
tho tulip who. would some day be red;
"but I think it wiser to wait and be
jure about the warm weather."
"Oh fiddlesticks!" exclaimed the yellow
tulip, "I wouldn't be so 'fraldy.' Can't
you feel the warm auruhlne? Don't you
know that sprlDS U here?"
"Sprlwr may be here all right." said
the red tulip, "but a few days' wait will

The husband who nags will hot con
fine himself to any one subject for criti
cism. Everything that his wife docs or
docun't do will come under tho censuro
of his tongue.
"It Is really very hard to please
George," said n sad-faced wife the other
day. "For no matter what t do he
always finds fault. I'm suro 1 try hard
enough to ptcaso him, but it Isn't a
scrap of use.
"First of all, he started nasjrlns about
expense. '1 don t see how on earth ott
can afford to wear these pretty clothes.
Mary,' he would always say. 'It's pretty
hard that my earnings shoiild nil go for
tho decking out of your person.'
"In vain I assured him that I had mado
theso clothes at homo at odd times, and
that they wcro really nulte Inexpensive.
It was a caso of out of the frying pan
Into the lire. For although he ceased
storming about waste or money, ha
started In about tho waste of time. 'Von
can surely find something belter to do
than sitting nil day long making these
fal-do-rals,' he giumbtrd.
"And o I took him at his word and
gavo up wearing pretty, dainty ribbons
and all the little accessories that can
Improve one's appearance so much. I
thought that ho would bp pleased with the
transformation; I certainly looked as if
t never wasted u moment on dress and
that nai what was obviously wanted.
"But apparently 1 was mistaken. 'For
heaven's sake, Mary,' cried my husband,
'whut In tho name of all that's awful
have you been doing to jourself to look

Another woman then took up the tale.
"t cured my husband entirely of tho nag

I am proud of tho fact. You see, It takes
two to make n quarrel, although It only
takes one to nag. AVoll, my husband was
a regular nagger. He'd nag about every

In the Kitchen
Oatmeal Is tho commonest nnd most
abused of nil the cereals. Nothing could
be more nutritious than oatmeal, as It
contains more fat, protein and mineral
matter than any of the few starch prod
ucts. Theso serve to supply good firm
bono structure, red blood corpuscles and
stimulate the activities of the system.
You should havo three objects when
you cook, It you cook In a scientific
manner. First, to sterilize the material,
to Improve the flavor nnd appearance, and
to produce changes In tho structure so
that tho digestive Juices -will act upon
tho nutrients themselves.
All cereals havo a thick, coating of cel
lulose or fiber, under which tho nutritive
qualities aro to be found. This thick
coating Is ordinarily Impervious to the
action of the digestive Juices, unless In
somo manner It Is removed. The only
satisfactory way to do this Is by long
and careful cooking. The effect la to,

the starch grains, too, thus aiding the
If It can bo managed even by going
outsldo the kitchen have the oatmeal
steamed, not boiled. Eight hours at least
should be allowed for cooking nil cereals,
If the result is meant to be digestible.
A great many manufacturers advertise
the fact that they havo crushed and
steamed their cereal. This is not enough.
Some day try adding from one to two
hours on to tho 20 minutes recommended
on the package and note the difference
Don't serve your cereals as If they were
soup. They should be firm, so that each
cell can expand to Its greatest capacity.
Measure the boiling water and put It
over the fire In the double boiler. Then
add tho required amount of salt, and
when the water Is boiling, add the oat
meal. Cook this directly over the fire
for Ave or ten minutes, until, you find
your substance is thickening. Never stir
oat cereals, it makes them mushy, A

If your new spring bonnet Is to bo
fashionable, it will tako time to select
It. A smartly gowned woman Is fault
lessly nttlrcd from tho tip of her chic
little hat to tho end of her gattcrcd
boot. You feel that no detail has been
neglected, that every feature of her cos
tume has received mlnuto and thought
ful attention. Tho most Important Item
Is her hat.
A poorly selected hat can spoil tho
effect of tho best looking suit that a
tailor ever made. Women should tako
plenty of time In deciding what Is most
becoming; Just because a hat Is a pretty
color, for lnstnncc, It may not bo n
proof that It becomes you.
There aro plenty of hats for every one,
and this season's styles offer variety
enough for the most fastidious of women.
They range' In slzo from close-fitting
llttlo turbans to broadbrlmmed "cart
wheels," as tho mero man calls them.
Ono thing is certain, and that Is, that
to bo In stylo you must wear your hat
at an angle. Tho unpardonable sin Is to
wear It straight on your head. Tip It
back, front, or on tho sides. If you will,
but It must have a fashionable tilt.
Trimmings follow more or Icbs orig
inal lines Just nt present. Some hats
aro low and flat, like tho proverbial pan
cake, nnd others, tower far above the
fair wearer's head. Cherry, American
Beauty, rose or ruby red aro coming to
