The average man likes well-made hash and grow and. this liking well may be the inspiration for appetizing dishes that are created from the accumulation in the Icebox. No matter how left-overs mcnts are' used, infinite care should be taken that all bits of fat and gristle ; are trimmed n«ry and diseard- ed._Rcheat!ng will not make these parts any mow palatable than iJVrf? after thc r ' rst cooMm.. The finding of undesirable morsels in hash or other "rechauffe" dishes soon teaches a family to regurd lefl-over s with disfavor nnd sns- plcian. Sandwiches, meat pies, tlmbalcs and croquettes provide varletv and are rather more elaborate and Impressive than the proverbial n«sh. Tlmbales are an economical dish since they offer an opportunity to use up a number of different kinds of meat to suit individual Ustes. A bit of fish may 80 into one tlmbale, a left-over l»mb chop Into a second, and a slid" of cold roast beef or veal into the third. Stndwlchcs, too, are economical, They may be hot or cold, B re easy to make and furnish unusual means for savory combinations Raw vegeaaWes such as celery, combine well with meats nnd add to the wholesomeness of the sandwich.

']* Au b6n . . . through Advertising One of the largest department stores in Paris is named "Au Bon Marche." Translated, it means "at a bargain--cheap." Actually, "au bon marche" indicates _ to the French what a true bargain does to Americans -dependable merchandise at fair prices. When so many shops everywhere are full of merchandise on which the "price appeal" is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon products of .known value and proven merit. The clock- that will not keep time is hardly a bargain at any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under hy- genic conditions, lest they become not only cheap, but dangerous Wearing apparel at a mark-down is only a snare and a delusion if it lacks the quality that 1 will result in wear. Wise shoppers,'these days, are refusing 'substitutes, are weighing true worth against price appeal. J-ney are .using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises ms wares consistently, you may be sure that he is telling the truth about them. He could not afford to do otherwise, even if he so desired; When a manufacturer ot national scope appeals to you through these pages, you can believe and act upon his words. "Au hon marche." Today advertising points the way to the only real bargains!
