"I fucked up the shell the first time
I was over with you."
"And you never told me!" said she.
"But that doesn't matter. What I'm
really angry with you for is your mak

man's clean and healthy life stood him
in good stead, and the process of heal

We had fetched a doctor from Priam

which Linda carried oat as closely as
she could. Indeed, she would have de
voted most of her time to Joe. but he
managed to make her spend a good
part of ea« h day out of doors. Some
times he would beg for a fish for his
supper and she must catch It herself
to prove how well she had profited by
his teaching. There were half a hun

which was obvious or trifling, until I
marveled at his ingenuity.
"You are flndmg the time long. Joe?"
I said on one occasion.
"No, Mr. Quaritch. the hours slip

At the end of the south veranda was
situated a small detached room which
we had turned into a workshop, and
early the same afternoon 1 went
around there to repair a favorite fish

passed through it. but presently Peter

Corn Starch Desserts
Corn is tjfcf most adaptable and'
wholesome of all our cereals and in the
form of cornstarch it produces the I
daintiest dishes we can make. i*ome
housekeepers have told me that they
have never had a box of this thickening !
agent in their kitchen but use flour for
gravies and gelatine for custards. As
the cornstarch has real food value this
is a mistake.
Molded cornstarch desserts lack the
transparem-y of the gelatine oues but
they look .just as fragile and can be
tinted in most delicate colors and mold
ed into any shape. Another thing in |
their favor Is they are not affected by
beat or cold. I
By many, Bavarian cream is consid
ered the gem of the whole collection of
desserts and. it contains both gelatine
and cornstarch, besides cream, fruit
juices and chocolate. Buch a dessert is
so rich it should t>e served at the close
of a light meal, never with other heavy
Uso the best cornstarch and, as with
the gelatine, always .follow the iustruc
tions on the carton as to quantity to be
used. The giveu recipe you can easily
vary to please your own taste. Cook
the mixture of milk, eggs and sugar in
a double boiler, when it reaches the
boiling point add the moistened corn
starch and stir continuously until it is
thick. The mixture must be well
cooked to have the best and smoothest
taste- Flavoring is added when the
mixture is almost cold and then fruit |
and fruit juices may bo put in also.
For pure white custards the white of j
the eggs only are used or eggs are!
If chocolate dessert is wanted grate j
the chocolate and add it to the hot |
milk first, then pour the mixture on the J
beaten eggs and return all to the boiler, j
Almond, rose, lemon, chopped ;
almonds, coffee, caramel and cocoa nut
are all better flavors for desserts than i
Cornstarch desserts may be shaped in i
any sort of a mold and will be firm as'l
soon as cool.
A Blanc-mange recipe that may be '
changed with these various flavors, and !
by addition of nuts and fruits, is made
with one pint of milk, three well beaten
eggs, three tablespoons of cornstarch
moistened in cold milk anil three table
spoons of sugar. Heat the milk and
pour it upon the beaten eggs, then add
the sugar. Return to the boiler and
when it is scalding add the cornstarch.
Fruit sauces add daintiness to these
cornstarch desserts not alone because
of their pungency but because of their
A clear sauce is made with two cups
of boiling water thickened with one

glass of crab apple jelly until it is thin

is almost cool add the beaten white of
