Tapioca and Its Uses
We have used tapioca for years and
know very well that it is made from
cassava, a tuber something like the
potato, only enormous in size. But
the tapioca we buy now is snowy white
and its grains are small and it cooks
quickly. "Is it the same?" we ask. It
ia just the same, with modern improve
There are many grades of tapioca but
the price does not vary much, unless
we buy the costliest sort, which is
really a great temptation for its cooks
so quickly.
The pearl tapioca must be soaked
over night, or at least some hours.
Then it is steamed or boiled and served
witk dates, or preserves, or with cream
and sugar, just as rice is cooked and
Tapioca is a tine cereal for breakfast
and what retrains may be mixed with
fruit and molded for desert. Boiled
tapioca is cooked in the double boiler
and not in a pudding bag as an in
experienced cook once tried to do when
preparing it for my table?
All fruits blend nicely with tapioca
but the apple seems to be especially
well liked with it. Apple tapioca pud
ding is made as follows: —But the
grains to soak in warn-, water and
when they seem to be softened, pare
and quarter tar: apples and place them
in a baking dish. Sprinkle them with
sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon and also,
a little lemon iuice. Drain all the water
from the tapioca and spread it over the
apples, add one tabespoonful of melted
butter and a cup and a half of milk
or enough to cover. Bake in oven
until tapioca is elear and like jelly.

Warrington switched off the key
his face humorless, though there was
a sparkle of grim humor In his sleep

deckhouse, shaking and panting.

hose, and the l.tscsrs sprang upon it
not knowing what the big blond sahlt
might do next.
Craig turned, vesom on his tongue.
He spoke a phrase. In an Instant, cold
with fury, Warrington had him by
the throat.
"'You low base cur!" he said, shak
ing the man until he resembled a man
ikin on wires. "Had you been sober

too. If you wish to die, speak to her
Craig struggled fiercely to free him

the other man'a eyes, that he wasn't
going to be killed then and there.
There was something caTe-mannlsh
and cruel in the way Warrington wor
ried the man. shaking him from side
to side and forcing him along the deck.
Suddenly he released his hold, adding
a buffet on the side of the head that
sent Craig reeling and sobbing into
the companionway.
"Here, 1 say, what'a the row?"
Warrington looked over his shoul
der. The call had come from the first
"A case of drunkenness." coolly.
"But I say, we can't have brawling
on deck, sir. You ought to know that.
"You Low, Base Curl**
If the man'a conduct was out of order,
you should have brought your com
plaint before the captain or me. We
really can't have any rowing, sir."
Warrlr-gton replied gravely: "Ex
pediency was quite necessary."
"What's this." The officer espied
the soaked bedding. 'Who turned the
hose here?"
"I did," answered Warrington.
"I shall have to report that to the
captain, sir. It's against the rules
aboard this steamship for passengers
to touch anything of that sort." The
officer turned and began Violently to
abuse the bewildered Lascars.
Warrington entered the companion
way; and a moment later he heard the
water hiss along the deck. He was
not in the least sorry for what he had
done; still, he regretted the act. Craig
was a beast, and there was no know
ing what he might do or say. Still
dressed, he flung himself in his bunk,
and immediately fell into a heavy
dreamless sleep that endured until

"Sit down. Mr. Warrington. Will you
have a cheroot?"
"Yes. thanks."
A crackle of matches followed.
"This fellow Craig has complained
about his treatment by you this morn
ing. I fancy you were rather rough
with him."
"Perhaps. He was very drunk and
abusive, and he needed cold water
more than anything else. I once knew
the man."
