WHERE DEATH LURKS ALWAYS
Bullets Sing Without Ceasing, and
Birds Sometimes, in "No Man's
Land" on Battle Front.
But it is a wonderful thing, that
strip we call No Man's Land, running
from the North sea to Switzerland
500 miles. All the way along the line,
day and night, without a moment's
cessation, through all these
months, mens eyes have been glaring
across that forsaken strip, and lead
has been Hying to and fro over It.
To show yourself means death. Hut
I have heard a lark trilling over it in
he early morning as sweetly as any
bird ever sung over an English
meadow. A lane of death ."00 miles
Jong, strewn from end to end with
the remains of soldiers. And to either
side of it all through those oOO miles,
a warren of trenches, dugouts, saps,
tunnels, underground passages, inhab
ited, not by rabbits, but by millions
of rats, it is true, and millions of hiv
ing, busy men, with countless billions
of rounds of death-dealing ammuni

closely ordered and complete as the

Many tailored suits of today have
cast severity aside and will not reckon
with it but insist upon participation in
the elaboration of clothes in general.
Even machine stitching, heretofore
beautifully done but almost unnotice-
able, parades its tine workmanship in
unnecessary added rows. Everything
included In the details of their mak
ing shows that tho tailor has thought
twice, or many times, before undertak
ing his task. This elaboration in cut
and stitching and the addition of fur
in collars and cuffs and bandings, rele
gates the severely plain suit to rainy
days or hard travel. And it results
also in new inspirations in design.
Onits are almost or quite three
quarter length. Skirts are plain, some
of them hanging straight and others
llaring slightly, and they are not longer
than ankle length. Collars are fea

The three best-liked developments of
the fur neckpiece are the pelt of the
fox (with head, tail, and legs repre

the square cape, and the flat scarf.
Short-haired furs are selected for the
long, soft scarfs and many of the
square capes, although the latter are
made up in all the popular furs.

worlds, peopled with foxes, would seem

Skunk is more durable and rather

makes very rich neckpieces and muffs.
It is a harder fur. Wolf, coyote, and
opossum are all dyed and cleverly ma
nipulated for fur sets and fur hand

rabbits are furnishing pelts that are
transformed into rich-looking furs.

An irreproachable tailored suit is
shown in the illustration. It might be
made in broadcloth, velours cloth or
"gloveskin." The front of the coat is
in one piece with emplacements at
each side, of separate pieces. These
shape the waistline a little, but coats
are vague fitting.
The long, loose sleeves emphasize the
departure from sever. models already
mentioned. A narrow band of the ma

with a single button. The double belt
at back and front is featured on many

fasten at opposite ends and are fin

not follow the whims of fashion and
change style with the Incoming of new
modes. They are superior to these
fluctuations. Some furriers, however,
advise the ise of cheaper pelts for
those who prefer style to quality, and
furriers are amazingly clever in trans
forming them into something new nnd
In the group of fashionable fur
pieces shown here a fox skin appears
mounted against a satin lining, with a
slightly full border of the satin ex

The border outlines the head, but the

IINERALS IN FOOD
ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR
PRESERVATION OF HEALTH.
Physical Ailments Sure to Result
When They Are Lacking Serve
Fruit, Vegetables, Milk and
Prepared by Laura Breeze of the De
partment of Farmers' Institutes of the
University of Wisconsin.
Some of the physical ailments result
ing from mineral starvation are rick
ets, scurvy, pellagra and anemia. An
anemic person has weakened vitality
and resisting power, and is, therefore,
a prey to colds, grippe and fevers.
The foods rich In minerals are vege
tables and fruits, breads and cereals
made from whole grains, eggs, milk
and the natural rice. In the milling of
the white Hours, corumenl, some oat
meal and most cereals, the parts of the
grains containing tho greatest amount
of mineral substance are eliminated,
consequently their value as sources of
mineral foods is reduced.
The housewife, however, can always
supply her table with fruit, vegetables,
milk and eggs. There are such numer
ous ways of serving these foods that
their appearance on the table should
never become monotonous.
The following recipe offers sugges
tions for an attractive way of serving
cabbage, the mineral content of which
is very high:
Imperial Cabbage. One medium
sized head of cabbage; two carrots,
pared ; two potatoes, pared ; one cup
ful of cooked meat or chicken (or more,
if desired) ; two teaspoonfuls of salt,
one small onion, one-fourth cupful but
ter, melted ; a little pepper.
Remove decayed leaves of the cab
bage ; form a basket of the head by re
moving the center and allowing two
layers of the outside leaves to remain
attached to the core. Crisp the cab
bage by allowing it to stand In cold
water. Drain well.
Put the cabbage removed from the
center, the carrots, potatoes, onion
nnd meat through the food grinder, add
butter and seasoning. Mix all well,
and fill the cabbage with the mixture.
Tie the leaves in place over the
stuffing with a clean string, and place
the cabbage in a tightly covered bak
ing dish and bake about one hour.
There will be no need of adding water,
as there is sufficient moisture in the
vegetables to steam them.
Apple and Rice Pudding.
Peel small, tart apples, core and put
them in a baking dish. Have ready
one cupful of boiled rice, mix with it
two cupfuls of hot milk, into which
has been beaten the yolks of three
eggs and one-half cupful of sugar.
Stir In one-half cupful raisins, some
strips of citron and, if j-ou wish to,
one-half cupful blanched almonds. Put
one teaspoonful of sugar Into each ap
ple and pour this mixture over them.
Put in oven, covered, and bake until
the apples are tender. This pudding
may be frosted with the whites of
eggs or served with whipped cream.
Cut up npples in pudding dish In
quarters (in eighths of apples are hard),
sprinkle about four tablespoonfuls of
sugar over the apples, a few drops of
lemon extract and some bits of but
ter. .Add about a tablespoonfui of
water. Make nice piecrust and cover.
Bake about one hour Eat hot with
whipped cream flavored with vanilla
or nutmeg. Fill dish quite full of ap
ples, as they shrink in cooking. Can
bake this Saturday and warm over in
oven on Sunday.
Hint on Broiling Fish.
Has anyone ever tried broiling fish
on paper? Some call it pan-boiled. Ev
erybody knows how fish sticks to
broiler pan or any other receptacle It
is cooked in, no matter hoV" well
greased. Cut thick brown paper, two
inches larger than pan, so it will set
well upon the sides and ends; butter
and lay fish on ; place pan In broiler
pan and set quite close to gas. It
will cook and brown deliciously and,
best of all, leave your pan clean. Bal
Bread and Prune Pudding.
' Soak a pound of prunes In warm
water all day. Butter a baking dish
and put in a layer of stale bread cut
In thin slices and buttered a little,
then a layer of stoned prunes, and so
on until the dish is full, the last layer
being bread. Beat two eggs with one
quarter cupful of sugar, add a pint of
milk, pour over the prunes and bread,
and bake one hour.
Mince beaf. mutton, duck or game

Mix one cupful of cold cooked chick
on cut in cubes, one cupful of chopped
English walnut meats, one cupful of
French peas, one cucumber pared and
cut in cubes. Marinate with French
dressing, arrange on serving dish and
garnish with mayonnaise dressing.
