Some Vegetable Soups
When the dinner must always begin |
with a soup the housekeeper often asks. !
"What sort of soup shall I have to
day?" vWv earnestly. The vegetable 1
soups varrv their own recommendations
when nirely made but too often they
are not fwell prepared. This is not al
ways carelessness, either.
One vegetable soup that is well liked !
if not*served too often is cabbage soup. '
To make this cut a small cabbage in J
pieces and boil it in water until it is!
tender. Press it through a sieve. Melt f
four tablespoons of butter and add it •
and one minced onion, one teaspoon of'
salt, one-third teaspoon of pepper and j
two enps of milk. Cook this five rain-1
ntes, then add two tablespoons of flour i
moistened with cold milk and cook j
five minutes longer. Tast# and add j
more salt and other seasonings if
needed, strain and serve. Cauliflower \
soup is made in the same way but
grated cheese is added at the last.
There is nothing new about bean
soup, but baked bean soup is a thrifty
dish, very nourishing and good tasting.
Take the pork or veal that was baked
with the beans and about three cups
of the baked beans and add to them one
quart of cold water, and one-half cup
of diced celery. Simmer gently for i
thirty minutes; add a tablespoon of
flour moistened with milk and. continue
cooking live minutes. Pour all this I
through a puree sieve, reheat and serve.
If you please you may add tomato sauce
or a cup of canned tomato to the mix
ture white it is cooking. The flour is I
added to all vegetable soups to give!
them smoothness and body and ira-!
proves them greatly.

milk in this way: Cook two quarts of |

milk and thicken it with a tablespoon
of flour blended with one tablespoon of

Of all vegetable soups tomato bisque
is undoubtedly most popular. To make
fit, one can tojnatoes, one onion minced,
: salt, parsley, pepper, celery salt, and
six cloves are cooked together about
ten minutes. Then a tablespoon of
| flour is mixed with a little milk until
iit is smooth and is added to a full
I quart of milk, and this is heated in a
1 separate utensil. Now put a fourth of
a teaspoon of soda in the tomato-spice
[ mixture and at once pour on the scald
ing milk. This prevents it curdling.
Cook the mixture five minutes, strain
it and cook again until heated through.
If the tomatoes aro very acid you may
need more soda to neutralize, but too
! much soda will taste.

I have a good excuse to chuck you ovet
. the rail. Upon a time you had the best
| of me. I was a sick man then. I'm in
' tolerable good health at present."
i "You crow, I could break you like a
| pipe stem." Mallow rammed his hands
Into his coat pockets, scowling con
; temptuously. He weighed, fully twenty
pounds more than Warrington.
Crow! Warrington shrugged. In
the Kast crow is a rough synonym for
thief. "You're at liberty to return to
your diggings forward with that im
pression," he replied coolly. "When
we get to Singapore," rising slowly to
his height until his eyes were level
with Mallow's, "when we get to Singa
pore, I'm going to ask you for that
fifty pounds, earned in honest labor."
"And if I decline to pay?" trucu
"We'll talk that over when we reach
port. Now," roughly, "get out. There
won't be any baiting done today, thank
"Cockalorem!" jeered Mallow. Craig
touched his sleeve, but he threw off
the hand roughly. He was one of the
best rough and tumble fighters in the
Straits settlements. "You thieving
beach-comber, 1 don't want to mess
up the deck with you, but I'll cut your
comb for you when we get to port."
Warrington laughed insolently and
picked up the parrot cage. "I'll bring
the comb. In fact, I always carry it,"
Not a word to Craig, not a glance in
his direction. Warrington stepped to
the companionway and went below.
Craig could not resist grinning at
Mallow's discomfiture. "Wouldn't
break, eh?"
"Shut your mouth! The sneaking
dock-walloper, I'll take the Starch out
of him when we land! Always had that
| high and mighty air. Wants folks to
think he's a gentleman."
"He was once," said Craig. "No use
giving you advice; but he's not a
j healthy individual to bait; I'm no kit
ten when it comes to scrapping; but I
haven't any desire to mix things with
him." The fury of the man who had
; given him the ducking was still vivid.
| He had been handled as a terrier
; handles a rat.
"I tell you he's yellow. And with a
hundred thousand in his clothes, he'll
■ be yellower still."
| A hundred thousand. Craig frowned
I and gazed out to sea. He had forgot
j ten all about the windfall. "Let's go
j and have a peg," he suggested surlily.

Immediately upon obtaining her
rooms at Raffles hotel iu Singapore
1 land leaving Martlia there to await
j the arrival of the luggage, an impos
ing collection of trunks and boxes and
! kitbags), Elsa went down to the Amer
ican consulate, which had its offices in
the rear of the hotel. She walked
through the outer office and stood si
lently at the consul general's elbow,
waiting for him to look up. She waa
, dressed in white, and in the pugree of
her helmet was the one touch of color.
Rajah's blue feather. The consul gen
eral turned his head. His kindly face
had the settled expression of indul
gent inquiry. The expression changed
swiftly into one of delight.
"Elsa Chetwood!" he cried, seizing
her hands. "Well, well! lam glad to
sees you. Good gracious what a beau
tiful woman you've turned out to be!
Sit down, sit down!" He pushed her
into a chair. "Well, well! When I
saw you last you were nineteen."
"What a frightful momory you have!
And I was going to my first ball. You
used the same adjective."
"Is there a better one? I'll use It if
there is. You've arrived just in time. |

I've an old friend from India in town
today, and I've asked him, too. Your
appearance evens up matters."
"Oh; then I'm just a flller-in!"

"Colonel Knowlton!" exclaimed
"That's so, by George! Stupid of
me. You came down on the same boat
Fine! You know each other."
Elsa straightened her Hps with some
difficulty. Bho possessed the enviable
| racuity oi instantly forming in her
I mind pictures of coming events. The
' little swelling veins in the colonel's
nose were as plain to her mind's eye
' as if he really stood before her. "Have

i gested.
"Just what 1 was thinking of," de

"The answer lies in your mirror,
Elsa. Your old nurse Martha is no
. real protection."
"Are men so bad, then?"
"They are less restrained. The heat,
the tremendous distances, the lack of
amusements, are perhaps responsible.
By the way, here's a packet of letters
for you."
"Thanks." Elsa played with the
packet, somberly eying the superscrip
tions. The old disorder came back in
to her mind. Three of the letters
were from Arthur. She dreaded to
open them. "1 must be going, then.
! I'm not sure of my tickets to Hong
| kong."
"Go straight to the German Lloyd
office. I'll have my boy show you the
way. Clionfe!" he called. A bright
eyed young Chinese came in quickly
I "Show lady German Lloyd office. All
same quick."
In the outer office she paused for a
moment or so to look at the maga
zines and weeklies from home. The
Chinese boy, grinning pleasantly,
- peered curiously at Elsa's beautiful
• hands. She heard someone enter, and
■ quite naturally glanced up. The new
comer was Mallow. He stared at her,
smiled familiarly and lifted his helmet.
Elsa, with cold unllickering eyes, of
fered his greeting no recognition what
ever. The man felt that she was look
ing through him, inside of him, search
ing out all the dark corners of his
soul. He dropped his gaze, confused.
Then Elsa calmly turned to the boy.
"Come, Chong."
There was something in the manner
of her exit that intinltely puzzled him.
It was the insolence of the well-bred,
but he did not know it. To offset his
chagrin and confusion, he put on his
helmet and passed into the private of
fice. She was out of his range of un
Mallow was an American by birth
but had grown up in the Orient, hard
ily. In his youth he had been beaten
and trampled upon, and now that he
had become rich in copra (the dried
kernels of cocoanuts from which oil
is made), he in his turn beat and
trampled. It was the only law he
knew. Ordinarily, when in Penang and
Singapore, he behaved himself, drank
circumspectly and shunned promiscu
ous companions. But when he did
drink heartily, he was a man to be
ware of.
He hailed the consul general cordial
ly and offered him one of his really
choice cigars, which was accepted.
"I say, who was that young woman
who just went out?"
The consul general laid down the
cigar. The question itself was harm- '
less enough; it was Mallow's way of i
clothing it he resented. "Why?" he ;
"She's a stunner. Just curious if '
you knew her, that's all. We came '
down on the same boat. Hanged If I
shouldn't like to meet her. Do you
know her?" eagerly.
"I do. More than that, I have al
ways known her. She Is the daughter
of the late General Chetwood, one of
the greatest civil engineers of our |
time. When he died he left her sev- j
eral millions. She Is a remarkable
young woman, a famous beauty, known j
favorably in European courts, and I
can't begin to tell you how many flther
accomplishments she has."
"Well, stump me!" returned Mallow.
"Is she a free-thinker?"
"What the devil is that? What do
you mean?"
"Only this, if she's all you say she is,
why does she pick out an absconder for
a friend, a chap who dare not show
his phiz in the states? I heard the tale
froi» a man once employed in his of
fice back in New York. A beach-comb

want others to know what she was

him from my plantation, when I found

name Just now, but he is known out
here as WarringtonParrot & Co."
The consul general was genuinely
"You can't blame me for thinking
things." went on Mallow. "What man
wouldn't? Ask her about Warrington.
You'll find that I'm tellihg the truth,
all right."

"I resent that tone. Better drop the
subject before I lose my temper. I'll
have your papers ready for you In the
morning." The consul general caught
up his pen savagely to indicate that
the interview was at an end.
"All right," said Mallow good-natu
redly. "1 meant no harm. Just nat
urally curious. Can't blame me."
"I'm not blaming you. But it has
disturbed me, and I wish to be alone to
think It over."
