NOW GO OX WITH THE STORY
DAPHNE'S hand shook a lit

ceiver. She didn't know
what to make of Ralph McKevitt.
She had been so happy, so proud
of finding a Job all herself.
"Oh that won't do at all!" he
had said disgustedly.
A little flame of rebellion flar

It wasn't any of his business what
kind of position she took. Except
. . . except that she owed
him ten dollars, and he was the
only friend she had. in the world,
and she loved him.
"I can't help it if it is silly I
do love him. I always have, ever
since the first time I saw him!

her nose. "Darn It, why did he

light streamed from the kitchen
where old Mrs. Hinckie stood in
the doorway wiping gnarled
hands on a dingy apron. "You got
bad news, Miss Haines?"
But the 'tears came before she
could get back to her room again
and close the door. The bottom
had dropped out of her brand new
world. Everything was spoiled.
"Nobody's going to talk to me
like that!" she whispered fiercely,
hugging her knees, trying to hard
en her heart against him.
But when she heard his ring

doorway, ruddy. Inroad-shouldered,
smiline. she melted. Forgot
everything but that he was there?

"I'll Ret my hat!" she cried
breathlessly, her heart bursting,

be no wasterul lelt-overs. it can
be cooked very quickly, with little
trouble. And practically every
body like chops because they are
the most flavorful, most delicate
of the meat cuts.
Moreover, you can have quite a
variety of dishes, even though you
stick to chops as a standby. There
are all kinds of chops, and several
ways of preparing them which are
Favorite of course, is lamb. Rib
and loin are the most expensive
parts. The rib contains the long
bone and a very little round of
delicate meat. (The bone may be
scraped and before serving cov
ered with a paper frill if you must
be fancy). The loin has very little
bone, and is tender and Juicy.
Both these chops may be treated
like steak oven or pan-broiled
and finished In a short time.
Shoulder lamb chops are well
flavored, but they are not quite
so tender, have more bone and fat,
and take a longer time to cook.
In this country we are pernlck
etty about names and so ever
ything is called lamb, if possible,
even though it is rightfully in the
mutton class. Why mutton should
be avoided nobody knows, because
mutton is merely a more mature
meat. True, it may have a stronger
flavor, but this can be subdued.
If It Is not liked, by rubbing the
meat with a little lemon Juice be

ment goes, mutton has really more
nutrition value, pound for pound,
than lamb. High grade meat
should be a good red color, the fat
