The Bread Problem Again
"Home made bread" is a term to
eon.jure with. It brings to mind breads
of all sorts and arouses various emo
tions. We read in the Good Book of
Sara making Abraham bread and it was
good and probably the bread made to
day in many homes is not better, for
there has been little improvement iu
this nearly perfected art for genera
We have better tlour now and better
means for baking and we have the
bread mixing machines that make the
task of bread baking easy, so that with
generations of experience to draw upon
there is no reason why even the most
inexperienced housekeeper should not
make bread at home. Aud at this time
there is every incentive for us to do
our own baking. Home made bread is
far less costly than the bakery .article;
it can be made more wholesome and it
permits what is so often recommended,
a variety of breads.
Whole wheat bread is excellent, for
a change; here is a standard recipe:
2 cups scalded milk.
Vi eVp sugar.
1 teaspoon of. salt.
Mi of a yeast cake.
V-i cup of warm water.
5 cups of whole wheat flour.
Mix the milk, sugar and salt, dissolve
the yeast in the warm water and add
it when the milk is almost cold. Sift
in the flour and beat the mixture. Let
rise again until double its bulk and
beat down again and put into buttered
pans and let it rise once more, tihen
bake about thirty minutes.
After sifting the flour turn the bVan
remaining in the sifter back into the
flour as it is the wholesome part. The
flour is sifted to make it lighter; not
to remove the wheat bran.

| Good housekeepers never waste ends
|of loaves or stale broad of any kind,
i Indeed some of the most pleasing
| dishes are made from these so-called
| odds and ends.
If your family does not enjoy toasts
fry the slices of bread in butter until
they are delicately browned and on
these savorv squares serve poached or
fried eggs or creamed meats or fish.
Purees of vegetables or of greens also
make capital toast combinations and
| eggs may be used here also.
Cod roe and shad roe are just com
! ing into the market and these are best
on nicely made well buttered toast.
Do not let the bread get too hard
; before using it as ton dry toast is not
good. Very dry, stale bread may be,
| browned until quite dry and then rolled,
| sifted and kept for breading, for thick
jeniug and for many similar uses.
Question. —"Is the bread mixer prac
tical for a small'family and are the
< same recipes used for bread made in
the machine as though made in the reg

Reply.—The bread mixer is absolute
| ly satisfactory for any number to be
baked for. Do not buy too small a
machine, however, as you can make as
\ few loaves in a large mixer as you may
; need but you cannot make more than
i three or four loaves in the small size,

The Place °j fioneymoom, etc.
Warrington was too strongly oaz
zled by her beauty tonight to be men
tally keen or to be observing as was
his habit. He never apoke to hia
neighbor; he had 'eyes for none but
Eisa, under whose spell he knew that
he would remain while he lived. He
was nothing to her; he readily under
stood. She was restless and lonely,
and he amused her. So be It. He be
lieved that there could not be an un
happier, more unfortunate man than
himself. To have been betrayed by
the one he had loved, second to but
one, and to have this knowledge thrust
upon him after all these years, was
evil enough; but the nadir of his mis
fortunes had been reached by the ap
pearance of thiß unreadable young

am saying!"
"I beg your pardon! But I warned
you that my Italian was rusty." He
pulled himself together.

"On the contrary, the sight of you

He had never spoken like that be

vanity that was without aim or direc
tion. Farthest from her thought was
conquest of the man. She did not wish
to hurt him. She was not a coquette.
After dinner he did not suggest the
usual promenade. Instead, he excused
himself and went below.
They arrived at Penang early Mon
day morning. Elsa decided that War
rington should take her and Martha on
a personally conducted tour of the
pretty town. As they left for shore he
produced a small beautiful blue feath
er; he gave It to Elsa with the compli
ments of Rajah; and she stuck it in
the pugree of her helmet.
"This is not from the dove of peace."
"Its archenemy, rather," he laughed.
"I wish I had the ability to get as
furious as that bird. It might do me
a world of good."
"And how long is it since you were
here ?"
"Four years," he answered without
enthusiasm. He would not have come
ashore at all but for the fact that Elsa
had ordered the expedition.
There was no inclination to explore
the shops; so they hired a landau and

Over Her.
rode about town, climbed up to
quaint temple in the hills, and made a
tour of the botanical gardens.
"Isn't it delicious!" murmured Elsa,
taking in deep breaths of the warm
spice-laden air. Since her visit to the
wonderful gardens at Kandy in Cey
lon she had found a new interest in
plants and trees.
She thoroughly enjoyed the few
hours on land, even to the powwow
Warrington had with the unscrupulous
driver, who, at the journey's end, sub
stituted one price for another, despite
bis original bargain.
As they waited for the tender that
was to convey them back to the ship,
Elsa observed a powerful middle-aged
man, gray-haired, hawk-faced, steel
eyed, watching her companion intent
ly. Then his boring gaze traveled over
her, from her canvas shoes to her hel
met. There was something so baldly*
appraising in the look that a flush of
anger surged into her cheeks. The 1
man turned and said something to his
companion, who shrugged and smiled.
Impatiently Elsa tugged at Warring
ton's sleeve.
"Who is that man over there by the
railing?" she asked in a very low voice, i
"He looks as if he knew you."
"Knew me?" Warrington echoed, !
The moment he had been dreading had
come. Someone who knew him! He
turned his head slowly; and Elsa, who
had not dropped her hand, could feel
the muscles of his arm stiffen under
the aleeve. He held the stranger's eye
defiantly for a space. The latter
laughed insolently if silently. It was
more for Elsa's sake than for his own
that Warrington allowed the other to
stare him down. The flame passed,
leaving him as cold as ashes. "I shall
tell you who he is later; not here."
For the second time since that night
jn tne irrawaddy, nasa recorded a dis
agreeable sensaticfa. It proved to be
transitory, but at the time It served to
establish a stronger doubt in regard to
her independence, so justifiable in her
own eyes. It might be Insidiously lead
ing her too far away from the step
ping-off place. The unspoken words in
those hateful eyes! The man knew
Warrington, knew him perhaps as a
malefactor, and judged his associates
accordingly. She thus readily saw the
place Bhe occupied In the man's estfc
matlon. She experienced a shiver of
dread as she observed that he stepped
on board the tender. She even heard
blm call back to his friend to expect
him In from Singapore during the sec
ond week In March. But the dread
went away, and pride aud anger grew
Instead. All the way back to the ship
she held her chin in the air, and from
time to time her nostrils dilated. That
look! If she bad been nearer she was
certain that she would have struck
him across the face.
"There will be no on® up In the
bow," said Warrington. "Will you go
up there with me?"
j After a moment's hesitation, she
nodded. A moment after she felt the
I old familiar throb under her feet, and
j the ship moved slowly out of the bay.
"Do you know that that man came
] aboard?"
"I know it." The wide half-circle of
cocoanut palms grew denser and lower
as they drew away. "This is the story.

that night. Didn't care whether 1 died
on the road or not. 1 should have but
for my boy James. The man sent
along with us a poor discarded wom
an, of whom he had grown tired. She
died when we reached town. I had
hardly any money. He refused to pay
me for the last two months, about fifty
pounds. There was no redress for me.
There was no possible way I could get
back at him. Miss Chetwood, I took
money that did not belong to me. It
went over gaming tables. Craig. I
ran away. Craig knows and this man
Mallow knows. Can you not see the
wisdom of giving me a wide berth?"
"Oh, I am sorry!" she cried.
"Thanks. But you see: I am an out
cast. Tonight, not a soul on board will
be in ignorance of who I am and what
I have done. Trust Craig and Mallow
for that. Thursday we shall be in
Singapore. You must not speak to me
again. Give them to understand that
you have found me out, that I imposed
on your kindness."
"That I will not do."
"Act as you please. There are empty
chairs at the second-class table, among
the natives. And now, good-by. The
happiest hours in ten long years are
due to you." He took off his helmet
and stepped aside for her to pass. She
held out her hand, but he shook his
head. "Don't make it harder for me."
"Mr. Warrington, I am not a child!"
"To me you have been the angel of
kindness; and the light in your face
I shall always see. Please go now."
"Very well." A new and unaccount
able pain filled her throat and forced
her to carry her head high. "I can find
my way back to the other deck."
The Game of Gossip.
During the concluding days of the
voyage Elsa had her meals served on
deck. She kept Martha with her con
tinually, promenaded only early in the
morning and at night while the other
passengers were at dinner. This left
a clear deck. She walked quickly, her
arm in Martha's, literally propelling
her along, never spoke unless spoken
to, and then answered in monosyl
lables. Her thoughts flew to a thou
sand and one things, futilely and vain
ly, in the endeavor to shut out the
portrait of the broken man. What was
he doing, of what was he thinking,
where would he go and what would he
do? She hated night which, no longer
offering sleep, provided nothing in lieu
of it, and compelled her to remain ia
the stuffy cabin. She was afraid.
Early Wednesday morning she
passed Craig and Mallow; but the two
had wit enough to step aside for her
and to speak only with their eyes. She
filled Craig with unadulterated fear.
Mallow dragged along the gambler
whenever he found a chance to see
Elsa at close range.
"There's a woman. Gad! that beach
comber has taste."
"I tell you to look out for her,"
Craig warned again. "I know what I'm
talking about."
Mallow whistled. "Oho! You prob
ably acted the fool. Drinking?"
Craig nodded affirmatively.
"Thought so. Even a Yokohama bar
maid will fight shy of a boozer. I'm
going to meet her when we get to.
Singapore, or my name's not Mallow."
Craig laughed with malice. "I hope
you will. It will take some of the brag
out of you. Say, let's go aft and hunt
up the chap. I understand he's taken
up quarters in the second cabin."
"Doesn't want to run Into me. All
right; come on. We'll stir him up a
little and have some fun."
They found Warrington up In the
stern, sitting on the deck, surrounded
by squatting Lascars, some Chinamen
and a solitary white man, the chief en
gineer's assistant. The center of in
terest was Rajah, who was performing
his tricks. Among these was one

despised this act, as it entailed the put

"Fine business for a whole man!"
Warrington looked up to meet the
cynical eyes of Mallow. He took out
his cutty and fired it. Otherwise he
did not move nor let his gaze swerve.
Mallow, towering above him, could
scarcely resist the temptation to stir
his enemy with the toe of his boot. His
hatred for Warrington was not wholly
due to his brutal treatment of him.
Mallow always took pleasure In domi
