Winter Salad Plants
Well informed housewives realize
that every ilay should see some fresh
salad on the bill of fare, but it is not
easy to secure greens in winter. There
are a few, though, that we can always
Cabbage salad is one and it may be
arranged in so many ways that it will
remain appetizing a wonderfully long
time. There is red pepper and cabbage
salad, or, if you prefer, cabbage and
pimentos. Another combination is to
buy the tiny white German onions, chop
a few of them fine and add them to the
chopped cabbage. Over this pour the
vinegar from the onions and then dress
the mixture with salad oil.
If you have, no love for the Irish
gem you surely like celery, cauliflower,
chives and cress or beets and lettuce.
The chives will grow in your kitchen
window in a very small pot and just a
few of the spikes will give flavor to a
salad. Cauliflower is costly just now,
but a fair sized head will make a salad
one day and enough will remain for a
vegetable dish another day. Cook the
whole head and keep what you do not
need the first day in a cool place.
Tomato in aspic salad is made with
canned tomatoes and gelatin or veal
jelly. Tt is beautiful when carefully
molded and turned out on a bed of
cress or lettuce.
There are few days in winter when
cress is not. found on city markets.
The hardy Rtrong plants send up new
molds readily and needs only to be

How We
Weigh Coal
\ You may rest assured when you get a load of coal
from us that the weight is correct.
We are just as particular about weighing our coal
as your grocer is when he weighs sugar.
Each load is carefully weighed before it leaves our
yard. We have a large box at the side of our scales
tilled with the different kinds of coal. If the driver
does not have enough on his wagon he takes the
necessary amount out of the box lo make the scales
balance. Jf he has too much coal on the wagon he
takes some off. Every order is exactly right—there
is no guess work,
Onr scales are balanced several times each day
and they are inspected at intervals by the Harrisburg
Scale Inspector.
Furthermore, we are just as careful about the
quality of the coal as we are about the weight.

"I have a sweet grass basket that is
badly faded. Can I dye it?"
Reply.—These baskets may be made
like new by dipping them into hot dye
just as you dye willow and rntlia. This
also renews the sweet odor that makes
them so delightful.

Reply.—Hyacinths, narcissus and
daffodils can be grown and forced into
bloom in five weeks. They need only

bulbs by putting them on a layer of
absorbent cotton placed on a dinner
plate. Cover with another layer of cot
ton and kee.p under layer wet. Set in a
light place and the plants will push
through the upper cotton, grow rapidly
and bloom very soon. Put a few bits of
charcoal among the bulbs.

Retired Farmer Dies on Birthday

"That Is one of the rules 1 have

"May I?" eagerly.
"I'll have Martha change her chair

"Enough for ordinary conversation.
It is a long time since I have spoken
that tongue."
"Then, let lis talk It as much as
possible at the table, if only to annoy
those around us."
Craig had been eyeing the two, evil
ly. Set the wind in tlat direction? j

vulgarly expressed it, into that affair.

Craig's caliber never accepted the in

revenge of a roundabout character,
such as would insure his physical safe

erous or worthy in the man. There
is something admirable in a great ras
cal; but a sordid one is a pitiful thing.
Craig entered the smokeroom and or
dered a peg. At luncheon he saw
them sitting together, and he smoth
ered a grin. Couldn't play cards, or
engineer a pool, eh? All right. There
were other amusements.
That afternoon Martha chanced to
sit down in a vacant chair, just out of
the range of the cricketers. She lolled
back and idly watched the batsmen.
And then she heard voices.
"She Is Elsa Chetwood. I remember
seeing her pictures. She is a society

"A gentleman with a p&st, Mr. Craig :

"I dare say Miss Chetwood has a

Busybodies! Martha rose indignant
ly and returned to the other side of
the deck. She had lived too long with
Elsa not to have learned self-repres
sion, and that the victory Is always
with those who stoop not to answer.
Nevertheless, she was alarmed. Elsa
must be warned.
All Elsa said was: "My dear Martha,
in a few days they and their tittle-tat

and that I am concerned only with

Lie man was! He had had the ef

It was as late as ten o'clock when
she and Warrington went up to the
bow and gazed down the cut-water.
Never had see seen anything so
weirdly beautiful as the ribbons of
phosphorescence which fell away on
each side, luminously blue and flaked
with dancing starlike particles,
through which, ever and anon, flying

"Often, when I was stoking, during

frowned at the rippling magic. Why
was she invariably comparing the two
men? What significance did it have
upon the future, since, at the present
moment, it was not understandable?
"There is a man on board by the
name of Craig," she said. "I advise
you io bev.are of him."
"Who introduced him to you?" The
anger in his voice was very agree
able to lier ears. "Who dared to?"
"No one. He introduced himself on

"He has spoken to you about me?"
"A letter. I saw only his name and
yours. I tore It up and threw It over
board. Let us go back. Somehow,
everything seems spoiled. I am sorry
I spoke."
"I shall see that he does not bother
you again," ominously.
They returned to the promenade
deck in silence.
When Warrington found Craig the
man was helplessly Intoxicated. He
lay sprnwled upon his mattress, and
the kick administered did not stir him.
Warrington looked down at the sodden
wretch moodily.
Craig's intoxication was fortunate
for him, otherwise he would have been
roughly handled; for there was black
murder in the heart of the broken
man standing above him. Warrington
relaxed his clenched hands. This evil
breathing thing at his feet was the
primal cause of it all, he and a man's
damnable weakness. Of what use his
new-found fortune? Better for him
had he stayed in the jungle, better
have died there, hugging his poor de

The Cut Direct. •
It was after five in the morning
when the deckhands tried to get Craig
to go down to his room. With the
dull obstinacy of a drunken man, he
j refused to stir; he was perfectly sat
isfied to stay where he was. The three
brown men stood irresolutely and help
lessly around the man. Everyone had
gone below. The hose was ready to
flush the deck. It did not matter; he,
j Craig, would not budge.

"But, sahib." began one of the Las
cars, who spoke English.
"Don't talk to me. I tell you, get
out!" striking at their feet with his
i swollen hands.
Warrington, who had not lain down
at all, but who had wandered about
j the free decks like some lost soul from
the Flying Dutchman, Warrington,
hearing voiceß, came out of the smoke
room. A glance was sufficient. A
: devil's humor took possession of him.

I "Get up," he said quietly.

puffed eyes. "Go to the devil! Fine

never swerved. It smacked against
