Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta SUMMER READING FOR THE CANADIAN WOMAN AT' HOME IS COOKING REALLY A JOB MEANT FOR W01MEN Is She Better Fitted Sex to Do This Part-of the World'? of Monsieur Soyer Causes a ing of Hearts Among Toronto's Fair Sen. WILL ONE OF THESE MAIDS BE BRITAIN'S QUEEN SOME DA Y? ]f By M.. MACM. j. IN connection with Monsieur Soycr's visit laat week, a group of To- ronto business women ,vvero dfa- ,-cusslng the question as to whether in .spite of all the centuries when she has been the chief cook of ihe world woman really Is em I nimtly fitted for this occupa tfon. In the first place, one of the wo men said, a born cook ima to under stand something about the pleasures o -eating. Tagjo.for good food in dls to just food this partlcula woman denies In brief that the aver age woman knows much about. she said, "only the other day I heard a woman, who was a house- say that she looked forward eagerly to the day when all our food would be put- up' in the form lozenges.. Then household work which 'has to do with' the cooking of meals will be abolished.- Food tablets will be prepared by chemists and purchased wholesale, from food manufactories Gone tha delightful and appe- tising snjells which arise from the preparation of Is really food and not merely nourishment In bulk. Never again will the man or woman know what it means to taste a wen- prepared meal. No one.who looks for- ward to such a terrible development .of civilization as this can be a good cook, nor can she understand what .food means to the human race. The average woman to a certain extent re- sembles this extreme person who would do away with the delights, of eating merely to save herself and her house Hold the labor of preparing meals Eftting a Nuiunce. OF tha five business women prcs ent three admitted that to them eating waa a good deal of a nuisance The other two contended that a-'hoalthy normal "individual with a proper hold has to be interested in meals. The vital 'question dlscuaaed woi: Are women! really Interested In meals and should the> retain the privilege of catering: for. the household9 The.first'speaker continued-the dis- cussion by .declaring that, as-It h'ad- been discovered that oil women .were not fitted to be teachers and as it was being, discovered now: that.all women are not naturally born to1 "be" nurses, eo race will find :that'women 'have' household cooks and-purveyors under a mistaken assumption'Mha.t wor men o a natiVe gentug for cookery The fact Is that woman'has been cook because it fitted In conveniently ivtth her great occupation as mother Thero hafe been rpany our calling can! for your "thank you" notes. It Is wretched form. A wedding gift' demands a gracious and grateful answer In the first person: Don't fall to write your own notes. The habit some girls have of shifting this to. their brideamaids Is rude, and gives rise to many ridicu- ilous blunders. Don't make your notes per- functory and stereotyped. A bride often im- pression notes to stranRers'that-It takes years to efface. Be grateful without being gushing, Dont gauge your gratitude bj the of the gift pent Nothing more quicklj Hhows lack of breeding: It is stupid, us you never can tell .when your friends will com- pare your notes. Don't fall to, mention the name of your fiance In writing your notes of thanks. The gifts are aent to you both, though they belong to the bride. Dont exhaunt >ourself note writing. Keep, up your notes as well AS you can by dally writ- ing, but atop for :at least two before the wedding.. Mod- erate delays are long delays the height of rude- ness Don't notes on shabb} paper 'or 'ihbtei papor Have correspondence; cards or. fine linen paper, thai --with jour monogram Don t bo guilty of the exe crable form of ding gifts ThJnk you please, but keep.your comments unsftld. Don't to your dearest think none the better of you, and may tell s' r j Don't expect in a husband. Remember you are marrying a man, not a'hero in a novel. If he has faults, Is not up to your ideal, he Is doubtless v thinking the same of you. JLove much and learn to make al- lowances. If you would avoid unhapplncss. Your married life mily not bo that of your dreams but should be something far deeper and sweeter.
