A meat or poultry filling can be made li
this way; Slice finely several onions and fry
them In butter until slightly browned. Add
to the breadcrumbs, then mis In some
chopped parsley, salt, pepper, butter and a

You should certainly offer to take the
young girl to the dance and bring her home
again. Furthermore, you should bold your
self In readiness during th evening to Join
her at any time you may notice that site

one man for more than one or two dances,
as she may not care to stay too long with
one person, and you should ask her to dance
several times during the evening, even If
she Is always surrounded by partnera
A tazl or carriage Is not necessary. If you
can reach your destination easily without
much walking, although If the affair Is a
ball and lasts very long It Is better to taks

bent to pick up the pieces of glses At my
movement, thi kitchen door opened swiftly
and Katie rushed In. I had a sudden sick
knowledge that she had been listening and
looking during Dicky's outburst.

nround me. "You not feel bad for dot Dot

She brought tho broom and dustpan,
gathered up the pieces, carried them to the
kitchen, returned and made a pretense of
straightening up tho Iltlhg room, changing
the position of seteral chalrn nnd arranging
tho books and magazines. Evidently she
had something on her mind. Finally she
came close to tre.
"Oh, say, Missis Ornhnm, I no like to

"Oh I a great beeg man, with beeg black

to paint a sufficiently strong picture now
she had seized the brush, "llees eyes look
like dls at ire." Katie rounded her own.
I could see that she fancied herself an awe
Inspiring spectacle. "If he splk to mo to

"Hut there Is no place for you to Bleep."
"Oh, yes, Mitel- Graham. You como with

I followed her to the kitchen. She threw
open the door of tho unused closet I had
given her for her things.
"Hero," she said. "I sleep here "

"Why, Katie I" I exclaimed. There Isn't
room here for a bed." And, Indeod, the clonet,
while a large one, holding our trunks, Becm

place. But as I looked at It I vaguely re

rented the apartment speak of a maid's

phrase, for I had not then Intended to keep
a maid. Was this what she meant?
"Oh, yes. Missis Graham." carroled Katie
again, and stooping behind the trunks sho

"Are you sure you will be warm enough

"You get me nothing" Katie's olce wns

The girl's t arm-hearted Interest waa a

her shoulder and spoke warmly.
"You are ery good to me, Katie. Thank
you Now go to bed ', that'a a good girl."
"You go to bed, too. You not sit up

Katie bobbed her head emphatically.

Suggestions for the Guest Room
Till? Ideal guest room Is by no means tha
most luxurious or the most elaborate, but
It must reflect In every detail the thought
fulness of the hostess. One of the most
Inviting guest rooms I ever saw was, at
first glance, extremely simple In Its appoint
ments. It had neither lace bedspreads, silk
curtains nor costly furniture, but It looked
comfortable, You felt that you wanted to
stay In that room. When I had stayed In
It a few days I found out why.
Ths color acneme ot the room, which
had but one window and did not receive
much sun, was yellow and white. The
wall paper was white, with a small yel
low flower; yellow scrim curtains with
a deep hem nnd shirred alnnce hung at
the window The white enameled bed and
white enameled dressing tablo were cov
ered with the same pale yellow coverings.
There was a deep blue rag rug, with touches
ot yellow, on the floor, a blue-stslned big
wicker nrm chair, and a slender blue ase
on the dressing table held a single yellow
However, It waa not only the tasteful
color scheme of the room that appealed to
the eye, but the Individual evidences ot
thoughtfulness that made the room com
fortable. There were several blue and yel
low cushions for the chair; a small foot
rest before It. white enameled, and the
top cohered with deep bluo burlap.
The bed was In the middle of the room,
but as tho room was not large a small
table within arm'a reach of the head of
the bed fitted right Into the corner of the
room This square table held ono or two
current mngaxlnes, a small drop light and
a llttlo white enameled tray bearing a
small glass carafe covered by a small glass
tumbler. About one foot oer the tablo was
hung a bookshelf built Into the right angles
of tho wall, and Just largo enough to con
tain a dozen books some volumes of short
stories, verses and plays.
At the foot of the bed was a small
wooden rack tor a , -ultcase. on which
one could comfortably pack and unpack
without ths stooping and bending usually
There were many other lilt e evidences
of thoughtfulness that I found In this com
fortable little guest chamber. Tucked In
tha top drawer of tho dressing table. In ad
dltlon to some toilet articles, was a small
