How to Prepare -a Grapefruit
GOETHE tells us thnt Wcrther fell In love
with Charlotte as he watched hor cut
ting bread for her younger slaters and
hi others 'She wns a picture of womanly
grace nnd tenderness and It had Its effect
on tho observing young mart.
It la quite possible to display beautiful
tapering fingers In tho dainty slicing of
bread and other foods Hut only tho
skilled hometpakcr ran dare to attack thn
grapefruit and publicly slice it before the
family or guests. Hut thero is a way, and,
llko other things. It depnndi largely on the
mechanical assistants you uso when you are
ready to prepare tha grapefruit for the
In the first place, you can't proceed to
battle with the grapefruit with juet any
knife at all. You need two sharp knives.
One Is a smalt, sharp-blndod knife with
which ynu can halve the fruit; the other
Is an equally sharp, curved-hlada knife.
Hero Is an efficient line of action:
Klrst. Cut the fruit In half with tha
straight blade.
Second Rxchnnga the straight-blade knife
for tho rurved.blade knlfo, and cut out of
the grapefruit the center core and the
Third. Cut the pulp from the back of the
skin with tho round blade,
Fourth. Cut the pulp from each little
rind wall with the straight knife.
With these two knives, and following a
definite plan of action, any ono can prepare
a grapefruit perfectly.
It may seem as though It were rather a
complicated process to havo to use two
knives for tha preparation of one kind of
fruit, but It is the greatest economy In the
long run. In the first place, tha grapefruit
must be cut absolutely right or It la spoiled
for table use. No one likes to tee a grape
fruit that Is "raggy" or almost julceles
because of Improper cutting. It's an ex.
travagance to buy a fine grapefruit and
then tp serve It badly so that the appetlzlnsr
quallty for which you've paid a good price
is removed,
Also It ! better to havo your two knives
for this purpose than to Impress tha other
kitchen knives Into grapefruit service. The
hotter your equipment of knivtu In the be
ginning, the laniiw will the whole outfit
last The housewife who economizes by
making shift with one or two knives for
everything In the kitchen has to replace this
limited, supply so often that most of the
lima she la minus a satisfactory tool.
JCntves wear out qulekly If jhey are used,
too often and too reo!tlwwy for all aorta of

X States In tho town of Sandnknn In
Borneo, Our llttlo party only stayed thcro
two days, but na tho American consul
had been our follow-travoler from tho
Philippines, ha nsked tia to hl.s houno to
a good American Thanksgiving dinner.
Next to ma sat an T5nsllshmnn, aman
of culture and knowledge of tho world,
nnd during tho courso of our conversa
tion, lis said something very nice nbout
America. That In Itself Is worthy to ho
chronicled, as every American who has
lived much nhroad will readily consent
Wo hear all klnda of criticism of our
country, somo that mokes ua laugh, somo
that makea our blood boll. Oautlor, Paul
Hourgot or Kipling, not to mention lesser
lights, spend n few days or weoks here,
and then proceed to give us their moro or
lenn unflattering Impressions. Slnco the
war thoy aro mostly, moro unflattering.
Tho American's wealth Is what tho Kuro
poan most rcsenta, It neems. His youth
and lrrepresslblo spirits ho doplorcs next.
nut to como back to my Englishman
and paso on tho trade-last.
"Do you know what has opened my
eyes tn tho fact that America must havo

"I glvo up," I said laughingly. "What
Is It, Mlstor, I hlto." (For I was resolved
to shock this fluently spoken gentleman
with somo Americanisms.
"It Is your Thnnkaglvlntr nay," ho rnld
solemnly nftor hnvlng Indulged In a smile
at my frivolity, "A peoplo that seta asldo
ono day ovory year to thank tho Jxird
for Ills blessings Is osscntinly n, spiritual
people, and must havo other thoughts be
sides making two dollars grow where ono
grow before."
"You nro right," I said; "tho host Judges

That very morning I had thought no to
myself ns wo woro taking n walk through
tho town and toeing tho numcious opium
dives wldo open and thronged. Tho Gov
ernment holds tho monopoly on opium
nnd soils it freely to tho Ignorant natives
who sink lower nnd lower whllo their ex
ploiters wax rich. Coming from tho
Philippines, whero tho American Govern
ment sponds much effort nnd monoy to
provent tho Filipinos from obtaining
opium stealthily, ono cannot help malting
comparisons nnd coming to conclusions.
Howover, I did not vnlco my thoughts,
as you may imagine. I was In Hritlsh
Uorneo, In tho Amorlcan consul's houso.
and wo wero having dinner, throo very
good reasons.
Then our host sungcstcil that tho old
mylng ought to bo amplified with "Ity
their holy days yo shall know them,"
adding that ho, for im, had always ap
proved of Thanksgiving, from the tlmo
ho was a boy.

looked up, startled. I bad never rpoltcn In
that manner to her before. Hut I know
enough of her childlike temperament to
renllzo that It was tho only way to slop
her tears.
"Xow, listen to me," I went on, firmly
"You must stop prying, batho your eyes

I had decided not to lake I.llllan Oalo's

text of n tordhnche. Frank and Pnlsy
Lester In all probability would bo our guests
again. It Katlo remained In my employ
she would havo to sco Frank Lester some
time, fibo might as well begin nt once.
Katlo was obstinate, howover.
"Oh, Missis Oraham," nho sobbed, "I
told you dot Meester Lc3talro ho so bad
man, I 'fraid of him I do not want to sco
I walked over to her, took her by tho
shoulders nnd looked nt her quietly for a
moment. Tho ruso succeeded. She stopped
crying nnd looked nt mo In amazement.
"Don't bo nn Idiot, Katlo," I said sharply.
"Mr. Lester Is married. Hn has a wife and
llttln baby Ills wlfo is with him tonight
llo probably has forgotten nil about you, or
Hint ho over frightened you. He was a
b.td man, I know, but ho cannot hurt you
nnw You nro hero with mn. In my houso,
If you obey 'mo I will tako care of you."
A Vi:m AJ1M3 AID
Katlo often surprises mo with her quick
changes from sadness to gnycty. Sho wiped
her eyes and broko Into ono of her In
fcctlnu.s giggles.
"O-ohl" slio said. "Mcester Los la I ro he

she glvo him good leecklng. I no 'frald

"ICnllo, you must never speak In that
manner of any guest of mine." I snbl stern
ly; but Katlo hnd vanished Into her room
and tho teprnof wan wasted.
I went Intn thn living rnom nnd mnhaged
tn get a word aside with Lillian Onlc.
"Katlo Is nil right. Sho will nervo with
out any trouble. Can ynu warn Mr. Lester
nnt tn betray, by a wnrd or glance, that
be lias over seen her before?"
"Trust Frank." replied Mrs. Underwood
shortly "Ho could meet his murdered
father's ghnot. If hn had one, without tho
quiver nf nn eyelash. Hut I'll tell him,
nnywny. Just for tho pleasuro of letting
bun know I nm next. Hnw did you ever
mr.nngo Katlo?"
"Oh, sho wasn't hard to manage," I re
turned lightly. I had a puroly feminine
satisfaction in having reduced Katlo to
sanity alter Lllllnn Galo had failed. Sho
seemed ho eminently capablo In all direc
tions. When I camo In lo speak to her I
hnd drawn hor away from a group com
prued nf herself, Dicky nnd Mr. Lester.
Thev were discussing some pioblom of their
profession, nnd Lillian Gale, with her forcl
ble wordn and animated gestures, held tho
center ot the stage. Until men wero listen

I felt suddenly out of It nil, lonely.

"Oh, Mrs. Graham, pleaso como over hero

Mrs. Underwood, with an nlr of relief,
moved back to her discussion with Dicky
nnd Mr. Lester, and there was nothing

As I camo toward them Harry Underwood
