Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta SCHOOL for Hou sLWIVES By MARION HARLAND HALF N. century ago. Doctor Hall, H noted physician of Ills time, and boat known us tlio editor of the Journal of Health, shocked conservative die- lltlnns by boldly deolarlrs Hiat In his opinion it was- hardly posstblo for-n hcnlitiy person to'-out enough ripe tgrapes. to .Injure the digestion, or to disagree seriously with stomach. guarded the assertion ivlth two provisos: The eater must bo a healthy adult and the grapes must be fully ripe and absolutely pound. "Given these ho went on to say, "and one may eat n pound and more or tho fruit without in- convenience 'to At that date physiologists were Jiist beginning to lean toward new thought In tho matter of human diet, Triilts were- classed with such nrlPK as cakes, pastry and wines, They..miffht not be unwhole- when eaten In moderation. No- body thought at thorn as nourishing foods. Tho' schoolboy crammed hia pocket with apples and lollypops, and-devoured them Indiscriminately at recefes when he had, satisfied hunger with sandwiches and anvobtu_sa angle i of 'leathery pie. Nor did it matter! much to him tr the apples were green or ripe. Tho -passions of the aver- age small boy for preen apples has been proverbial from time imme- morial. The question arises whether or not he would over have puckered his tongue and grlpftd his diaphragm with the stony, sour pellets had' he been taught from the first that ripe fruit is as legitimate- an article of daily food as bread, mnd unrlpo no more to be deal red by eye or tasta than unbaked douffh. The Journal of Health warn an edu- cator of beat khidi and the edi- tor served generation "valiantly. We owe to both than most of us suspect. A half century back, Brapes were cultivated In a, slovenly, 'happy-go-lucky fashion, so unlike the respectful attention paid to them now that we arnllo incredulously in hearing of It. I recalled It with quiet amusement last autumn when a gentleman of the old school, whom I knew as a boy, was discoursing to me upon the time and pains bestowed upon his vineyard. As the different varieties ,of grapes attain their full size and begin to color richly, each bunch is tied up In a bag of tissue paper, to defend it from the depredations of the birds. They ripen leisurely Into lusciousness under the thin veil. When the bags are stripped off to let the sun kiss the purpling globes Into fullness of beauty and flavor, hits of shining tin or of glass are hung among the leaves to rrfghten away the feathered robbers. Finally, each cluster is clipped from stem with ji pair of shears and laid with care upon cotton batting In a broad basket. concluded the vintner, with would have been a relish mi smack of the lips had he been less re- fined, "we know and appreciate the grape In Its most de- licious and wholesome fruit ever grown upon the r slit! not remind him of the tottering trellises at the bottom of the country farden which we visited 'when the ancy took us. Peaches and melons "As the different varieties of prapc? attain their full size, each bunch is tied up in a bag of tissue paper, to defend it from the depredations of the birds.1' were guarded from juvenile despoilers untll the frulf was ripe. Xo one cared to forbid the grapes to our lawless 'hands. The vinos were draped with cobwebs and the leaves heavy with must. There wag a tradi- tion -to the effect that if ripe grapes were picked from a bunch on which green were growing, the latter would never ripen. Sometimes, with this In mind, we selected the ripest bunches. Usually we plucked the purplest glohea wherever we espied them. There was not a vineyard. In the length ami breadth ot. one of the richest agri- cultural counties In'the state. Now every suburban cottage has Us jealously tended vines and every "villa" its grapery.' With wise and extensive cultivation of the roval "fruit of the vine." and lively markets for it. have come many and various ways of preparing It for table uso that were 'unknown to our grandams. Resisting (he inclination to linger upon the esthetic features of that which has been in all aRfs the favorite theme with poet and painter, pass we on to the practical possibili- ties and values of the grape to house- mother and to home. Let the children eat as freely ot and they will. when you can afford it. They are the prettiest and most toothsome of our many breakfast fruits. Wash them by letting the coid water run upon the clusters; then hang them In the air for a few minutes. Line a. platter with tissue paper or a linen cloth to absorb the moisture and set tin? platter in the refrigerator for an hour or more before dishing- for the table. Pass grape scissors with them, that ths Ui-ger cilia tei's may iju uivlueu wl'in-jllt bruising Use berries. .Mingled with pears nmi peaches in a deep dish, grapes make the most gi-itcerul of desserts. I cherish with pride-flit delight the memory of if dinner party over which I prt-sldeil as hostess forty ypars ago, when the central ornament was a glass salver crowned by an immense cluster' of grapes, the gift of :i friend who had rinsuil tlie vine in-his frrupery from a. Every berry was perfect; each was as large as a robin's and the light streaming over the glorious cluster threw rounds of purest amethyst upon the thimask cloth. Among- thu guests was a distin- guished scholar and divine, who pro- nounced, ex cathedra. Hint the superb fruit had a pedigree dating "back to thf days when the spies sent by JJoaea to view the promised land "came unto the brook of Eahcol and ftit down from thence a branch with one cluster of yrapes, ;mrl bare it two upon a. Indulgent readers will pardon the reminiscence. Tho picture stands with me for tho very apotheosis of our royal Grape Juice lias leaped Joyously Into favor within decade as a substitute for farnii'iited "soft drink." re- freshing, Ilavorous and pleasing to til nil t us to palate. I 8ald to a tctnpc.-ancu lecturer yiriirs ago: "Wo shall make no headway with the lovers oC the refined and poetical In the mutter of eating; mul drinking: until we can offer sornrthlntf more nearly like the wine 'thnt muketb Kind the heart of man' and is the In- spiration of Anacrponlc iwirds In all ages.
