"We're all Irishmen when 'it comes to wearing green neckties and shamrocks oh.St. Patrick's.day. Something in this "early spring celebration appeals' to our ^romantic American.souls,.Even'.tho/we're unable to,-"'drown".the ;.shamrock"' in "Patrick's pot -r-in -other words, to dtp the -shamrb.elt in- a' -glass of whisky, meanwhile "· wishing the company -health, wealth and -'.every; prosperity, including, "long'leases and low rents," w,e can at feast be, "very gay" and enjoy the day which Is proverbially, fine. ' .' ' ' -' ' ^According to legend, in.the early days of Christianity in Ireland, St Bridget was much hindered in her work by the rains until at last she obtained as'a favor from God that every other Sunday should, be a Clear day, so .that she might preach to the crowds. Not to be 'outdone, St. Patrick .asked.' that- his anniversary might be a day of i sunshine and this too was subsequently granted. And this was not-all, but every .alternate day after- is supposed to be clear-and sunny.' .-"·; Day of Birth. The exact birthday of-St. Patrick se^ms to have caused a great deal : of argument and hard feelings according to the Irish 'poet, Samuel Lover. Some said it was on the eighth day of March, others declared it was the ninth, so that Pat was having two birthday celebrations until Father Mulcahy "showed them their sinsl'-- · "gays he, 'Boys, don't be fightia' for .".:, eight or for nine; Don't:be always dividin'--but some'"" times combine; Combine eight with, nine, seventeen "· is the mark, * ~.~" «ji£$!3^- '*^-i- *Fvom' now. on until the seventeenth, St." Patrick's culinary celebrations are entirely in order. Any company dinners or suppers, party refreshments or afternoon teas should -show .jaunty touches S)f green, an,d table centerpieces of potato rockeriesjwlth trailing vines of --well, wandering Jew, smllax or whatever you can produce--would emphasize that the day of festivity is near. If .you can take the time and love to . pofce around in the woods, you can r make a handsome centerpiece by arranging,oh a mirror Jaid flat, green moss in the shape of the map of Ireland. A little cork will mark the town of Cork, , and you can inhabit the'emerald isle with tiny toy animals and people. · Menus Suggested. · Here are suggestive menus ' and recipes for various company meala.

My plea for economical dishes that will rejoice a hungry family, and yet stretch the- mother's dollars so that she will have food enough to last until the next day, was surely well answered.

If you have the imagination, send, on. your ideas to me in care of this paper, and we'll print their, in our column, so that everyone will have the benefit.

I have more than likely to plan days in advance for a ginger cake. Anyway when I have the things necessary I make a bi' one. It Is very economical-and Is healthful, and sort of cheers up the digestive organs. x ·' "I have -tomatoes often too A 10 cent can will make us a meal fixed with a little dry bread and onion salt and pepper. I leave out the sugar as it makes them taste smooth and the acid taste is the reason 1 serve them. "There seems to be no end ot ways for preparing potatoes. We sometimes have a meal of them boiled plain with onion, salt and pepper and canned milk or .grease itravy browned and milk added. Sometimes I-.serve onions coiled in a very little water until It is nearly gone with a wee bit of salt, i make a".,gravy of. lard 'and flour not )rowned, add a bit of caniied milk :o give .flavor and^season to taste Boil it i until thick and pour on to a totter. Set the onions around in he gravy. I boil the onions whole This looks and is g-ood. ' "Another way is to buy meats on sale. I watch the papers ana anything .over 10 cents a pound T scorn. Today,-! got 25 cents worth' of. short rib boil, add a-5. cent bend ofv cabbage, bunch Tcarrota, 1 clove garlic, 6 potatoes, big, ones cut; up in chunks/ Salt, pepper and 1 .tsp. chili pbwirei. , -.- '/. ' "Brown short ribs'on all sides un T . til very brown. Cover with water added to the. pan .while the .pan ia hot. Leave carrots whole (i wash them with .a turklsh cloth instead of peeling tjhe'm). Add one can of tomatoes and boil hard till meat is Gone. The. potatoes 'should be added about an:hour before the -meat is done. This makes a big : roaster" full, of stew and lasts three or four meals. Costs about 55 cents. "I try to have one dish each meal with bread. We never have butter or oleo either. -It Is a waste of money considering the good it does. . "I, have a. glass of'milk' for my son each meal. When we have » meal I think he needs more energy with we give him a .chocolate bar. One dish served with bread and a glass 'of milk is plenty if it is all good. Here js a day's typical menu.
