FOOD FOR THE TEA-TABLE
The afternoon tea hour affords a
delightful opportunity to meet one's
friends In an informal
way. All hostesses will
welcome any suggestions
which will lend grace to
The sandwiches and
cakes to be served should
be quite simple, with a
bit of candied peel, a
few mints and a dish of
suited nuts, which will be plenty to
serve for uny Informal tea.
The cup of tea Is the thing, and
food should go with It in small quan
tities, ns too substantial a repast in
the afternoon or early evening spoils
the appetite for the evening meal
If one has a tea wagon all the ao
cesorles may be brought in at once.
Part of the enjoyment of a tea party
is the attractive table and the service.
A pot of boiling water Is always ne
cessary for the guest who has a pref
erence as to the strength of her tea.
The sugar, lemon, or cream is added
by the hostess herself In small teas.
In larger ones the guests help them
selves, or they are passed. j
Fruit Canapes. Soften one-half cup
ful of sweet butter, add one-fourth-cnp
ful each of finely chopped dates and
nutmeats and two tnblespoonfula, of
crystallized ginger and blend thorough'
ly. Spread on squares of buttered
graham bread, sliced very thin.
Cheese and Jelly Pastries. Prepare
a rich crust as for pie, cut into cir
cles, then cut small rings from the cen
ters of half of the circles. The old
fashioned tart that our grandmothers
made were prepared so. Cream a
three-ounce package of cream cheese,
adding enough cream to soften. Spread
the whole surface of the circle with
the cheese. A maraschino cherry, or
three, heaped with the cheese In the
center, makes another tasty tart.
There Is no form of sandwich so
attractive for teas as the open sand
wich. Cut Into rounds of thin sliced
bread, buttered and decorated with
piped mayonnaise, cream cheese, and
made attractive by chopped green and
red pepper. One may have an endless
Origin of Five Races,
According to Legend
The Iroquois Indians of Canada, In
their efforts to account to themselves
for the existence of the five races
of men with which they are acquaint
ed, have shaped Hie following legend:
In the beginning the Great Spirit, In
order to people the earth, went about
making a man of each nation. He
took a lump of earth and molded it
into a man. This first man was
a negro. Then he took another lump
and molded another man. This was
Chinaman. Then he made an In
dlan in the same way nnd gave life
to all three.
But two men, a Frenchman and an
Englishman, remained to be created,
and no earth was at hand wherewith
to make them. What was to be
done? The Great Spirit reached out
his arm and seized the first animal
that came His way. It was a butter
fly. The Great Spirit clipped off its
wings, added arms and legs and "set it
down in a corner of the earth. This
was the first Frenchman.
Again extending His arm, the Great
Spirit seized another animal. It was
an ant It was treated as the but
terfly had been ; it was given the face
and soul of a man and was set down
in another corner of the earth. This
was the first Englishman.
This explains, says the Iroquois
story, why the English and the French
have always been able to moke their
way so easily about the earth. Made
out of animals and not from lumps
of earth, they go everywhere. This ac
counts, too, for the difference In the
character of the Englishman and the
Frenchman. The one has always pre
served something of the industrious
character of the ant, and the other
something of the light ways of the

The BToundhoe didn't see his

going to have about six months more
of winter. , Mr. Groundhog was top

There has been the prediction that
in the future weather will be control
led by man,- but a prediction Ke
that is perfectly safe to make, as
this Invention will be so far in the
future that we will all be dead and
buried before it will be completed.
If old "June Pluvius" would only
come up here and turn on a little heat
instead of staying down in sunny
California where the sun shines
daily, he would certainly be appreci

Rut cheer uo: this cold snap has its
advantages, as radio experts say that
better radio reception is gained aur-
mcf the cold.clear niehts: but it is un
fortunate for those whose radios are
not workincr or for those who have no
radios at all. Next summer when we
am fanninsr ourselves when the
mercury is "90" in the shade, we will
probably look back to winter and sign
for little let un on the heat, for
