There are, instead, the sul- len monochromes of desolation, the inert black and white of sharply graven ruin. There were plenty of bands Playing when Sir Muirhead was appointed official war ~rtist in 1916. He painted boldly or etched deeply his pictures for the war museum, for which he later became trustee. Much was ]'nade, not only of the importance of a minutely observed pictorial record of the war, but of the availability of so great an artist to render its full aesthetic vaques. This time, there is a perfunc- tory announcement, only a few lines, of Sir Muirhead's appoint- ~aeut. Not even in the graphic arts is war getting its accus- tomed fanfare.

To be sure, every so often we find a recipe which seemingly contra- dicts every prin- cipleof cookery that has ever been formulated, and in spite of it, produces an ex- cellent product. I suppose that's the proverbial exception that proves the rule! But in general, following defi- nite rules of cookery produces the best results consistently. There is, for example, a standard method for mixing cakes. Then there are revolutionary methods such as that which is used in the jiffy cake recipe below. But it's well to remember that the unusual method which, in one recipe, gives entirely satisfactory results, for an- other recipe may not work at all. These are general rules (with an exception to prove every one, I do believe!) which the good cook fol. lows as a matter of habit: 1.
