In selecting asparagus, give prefer-j
ence to slender, bright green stalks that
feel crisp and cool to the touch. < are
must be giveu to cleansing the spikes,
for often they are full of grit; if at all
wilted or it' time must elapse before the
vegetable is cooked, tney may be
washed in cold salted water and:
wrapped in wet brown paper.
Like all vegetables, asparagus should
be cooked as soon after gathering as
The asparagus tips are the dainty,
fine tasting parts, and as they cook
very quickly the following [dan is good:
After washing the stalks with a soft,
brush and much water, tie them in I
bunches with the heads together andl
the ends even. Set the bunches, tips
up, in a deep sauce pan, and pour on]
enough boiling salted water to almost
cover the bunch and cook fifteen min
utes. By keeping the bunches upright
in this way the tender tops are
steamed and the thick stalks are boiled.
Asparagus is serveir on hot. well but
tered toast with or' without sauce. It
is also served in souffle, in omelette,
and with a dressing of hot vinegar and
butter, but however it n]»pears finally,
it must first be boiled as directed.
Asparagus mold is a handsome gar
nish for planked meats: Cook and drain
the plant and cut it in short lengths and
place in small buttered molds with al
ternate layers of green peas. Let the :
last layer be of peas and hard boiled (
eggs, the latter being pressed through '
a sieve. Cover with a rich, plain white f
sauce and steam in a pan of water in a
hot oven forty minutes. After the meat I
is planked, invert the molds around it '
and the garnish will come out smoothly, r

Unexpectedly I met Britton:

Five minutes later I was at her door]
my heart in my mouth. A sudden,
| inexplicable form of panic took pos !
session of me.
After some deliberation I came to a
decision. The proper thing for me tc;
1 do was to show all of them that theit J
ridiculous suspicious vuge wrong. Res- j

For some two long and extremely'
monotonous days 1 toiled. 1 could not•

those pleasant hours with the countess. I
1 did miss them. 1 missed Kosemary;
ami Jiuko and Helen Marie Louise An
toinette and Blake.
Blatcbford came to the door.
"A note for you, sir, if you please." j
said he. He was holding the salver \
I almost on a level with Ids nose.
My heart —my incomprehensible
I heart—gave a leap that sent the blood |
rushing to my face.

just occurred to me that I was goiug

my heart was beating like mad.
1 reflected. Here was I racing along
like a schoolboy, and for what? What
occasion was there for such unseemly
haste? In the iirst place, it was nowi
but a few minutes after 11. and she!
had asked me for luncheon. There was!
no getting around that. At best lunch
eon was two hours off. So why was I
galloping like this? The series of self
Inflicted questions found me utterly
unprepared. I couldn't answer one of
After ten minutes of serious, undis-!
tnrbed consideration of the matter 1
came to the final conclusion that it :
was not love, but pity, that had driven
rae to such abnormal activity. It was
nonsense to even nrgue the point.
For nn hour and a half by my watch, j
but five or six by my nerves. I paced
the lonely, sequestered halls in the
lower regions of the castle. Two or
three times I was sure that my watch 1

"Don't you think the roses are lovely

It suddenly occurred to me that she
bad got on very well without me dur
ing the ages. The discovery irritated
me. She was not behaving at all as
I had expected.
"There liasu't been a great deal of
news." I said.
She dropped a long stemmed rose
and waited for me to pick it up.
"Thank you," she said. "Oh. did It
"Yes." said 1 flatly. Then we both
gave the closest attention to the end
of my thumb, while t triumphantly
squeezed a tiny drop of blood out of

closed. She was no longer interested
in the laceration.
"So you thought 1 had deserted you?"
I said, and was a little surprised at
the grttffness in my voice.

with a smile. For the first time 1 no
