PKOUABLY no people of Asia
fought harder against the inva-
sion of Western customs than the
Afghans. Not many years ago few
were the foreigners who crossed their
borders and lived to tell the tale. In
recent years, however, many visitors
have given In print first-hand descrip-
tions of the kingdom that reposes
among the mountains northwest of
In Asia, where headgear is a sign
of rank or race, the Afghan has re-
fused to "go high hat."
To the Durani leaders and Sliinwari
tribesmen, the threat ol parliamentary
procedure was bad enough, for Afghan-
istan was more a mountain-sandwiched
mass of aggressively independent
tribes than r united nation. Hut edicts
prescribing shorn beards, frock coats,
and top hats were last straws on their
tolerance of hasty centralization. They
felt that a high-speed dawn from the
west was a false dawn. And so they
proved It. Arnanullah—the Peace of
God—fled After six years the turban
remains, a sign that, even in Asia,
haste makes waste.
To induce European thoughts ^
Turkish heads, Mustapha Kernal Pasha
tucked the Latin alphabet in below
European hats. Amnnullnh hoped to
accomplish even tnoro radical changes.
But the patient Afghan mountaineer,
a swaggering "he-man" If there ever
was one, persisted In sticking to his
broad turban or dressy astrakhan cap.
And thereby hangs a tale.
Afghanistan was long Isolated by po-
political jealousy as Mecca and Lhasa
are by prayer niche and prayer vheel.
The Afghans cherished isolation as had
their predecessors, the I'arthians, who
"held it as a maxim to accord no
passage over their country to any
In 1017 when a traveler rode south-
ward from Merv, Kushka was the end
of a blind alley. In 1021 when he went
northwestward through the Khyber
pass and faced that famous sign read-
ing: "It Is Absolutely Forbidden to
Cross This Border into Afghan Terri-
tory," there was a Gurkha guard to
emphasize the "absolutely."
Couldn't Hustle the East.
By 1017 not only was Afghanistan
open to visitors hut current events
speeded up. Before the end of that
medieval year King Arnanullah and
Queen Souriya, monogamist rulers of
a polygamous land, had boarded their
first steamship and were at the thresh-
old of western culture, Its permanent
values then reinforced by Industrial
activity and bull markets.
The next six months were amazing.
The vacationing rulers rode from tri-
umph to triumph, enjoying such Euro-
pean thrills as few Europeans know
because westerners have had decades
to become accustomed to what the
Afghan rulers personally encountered

Chinese wall, many a conqueror en-
tered Hindustan, treasure house of
gold and Jewels. The presence of pov-
erty-stricken and nomadic tribesmen
so close to ill-guarded riches often
proved disastrous to India. It is no
wonder that the British ruler invited
the Afghan king to be the first royal
visitor ever to fly over London, and
staged a mock battle for his benefit.
A few months later this honored
guest of modern Europe was driven
from his palace in Kabul. Kipling
wrote the epitaph of such. Arnanullah,
like other enthusiasts, "tried to bustle
Of course, It is fantastic to suggest
that the Afghans overthrew their ener-
getic king simply over a question of
dress; because village girls were forced
to attend school without the consent
of their parents; or even because the
consent of the bride was made obliga-
tory for marriage. Economic and re-
ligious problems were involved, and
the Afghan reformer perhaps lacked a
knowledge of popular psychology.
In emulating Mustapha Kemal
Pasha, Arnanullah failed to realize that
the Turkish leader, by saving his coun-
try from division between foreign pow-
ers, developed a new-born nationalism,
whereas Afghanistan was still divided
against Itself by snow-clad mountains
and feudal customs under which tri-
bal loyalty was more potent than pa-
His Deceptive Welcome Home.
Flattering contacts with western
civilization had weakened Amanullah's
judgment and the cordiality with which
he was welcomed home was deceiving.
Kabul was In festal array. Gen-
darmes in new red uniforms stood In
rigid lines between bright triumphal
arches. Afghan carpets by day and
colored lanterns by night brightened
the mud walls of the mountain-girt
capital, which, like Bukhara, made an
earthen flowerpot for colorful crowds.
Tribesmen from the hills added their
cocky costumes and ioop-the-loop foot-
gear to the best dress of the citizens.
In a carnival atmosphere, horse-racing

On a large wall map the Itinerary ol

was traced. On each seat was a printed
text of the foreign contracts and agree-

case of political cards on the table, ol
open covenants In every chair.

Conservatives resented the highei
taxes which widespread reforms would
entail. Mullahs and mosque attend-
ants objected to having tlielr govern-
ernment allowances stopped. The rap-
Id tempo of modernization brought con-
fusion and resentment, as did the
change of religions holiday from Fri-
day to Thursday. The fact that a for-
eign-style coat was made of honest
Afghan cloth did not mollify the self-
conscious tribal delegates, who retali-
ated by accusing AraanuUah of being
negligent about his prayers. vVhen
royal reforms threatened the tribal or-

Almost all housekeepers keep on
the puntry shelves a supply of the
better known suuees. At least chill
sauce, ketchup, one of the Worcester-
shire style sauces, tabasco or one of
the other sharp sauces of the same
type are usually to be found among
these supplies. Sometimes we find,
as well, mushroom and walnut
ketchup, anchovy essence, chutney
and occasionally soy sauce.
In some households these sauces
are used only as table accessories.
They will appear with meat and
flsh, to be added to their indlvidal
taste. In the household where cook-
ing is practiced as an art, we find,
however, that they are used as con-
diments as well to flavor soups and
sauces, canapes and sandwiches.
It seems to me that a dasli of Wor-
cestershire or a tablespoon of ketch-
up, for Instance, often lifts a soup
from the usual to the unusual. A
tablespoon or two of chili sauce or
chutney added to a plain drawn Wit-
ter or white sauce gives a flavor in-
describable hut appetizing. It is dif-
ficult to give special recipes for the
addition of these sauces to ordinary
foods, because all of these Mendings
should be made to taste—good taste.
The good cook is not afraid to expe-
riment witli seasonings, but she
knows that they must be used with a
light hand. Prejudice against cer-
tain seasonings has invariably been
engendered by an over use of them
when they were introduced. There
Is curry, for Instance. How many
times, says a food expert, I have
found that persons who say they
"Just can't bear curry" ask for sec-
ond helpings of hartford sauce. This
sauce, by the way, is wonderful with
lobster, crab and shrimp, served as a
cocktail or as a main supper course.
The sauce popularly known as vin-
aigrette Is made differently by al-
most every cook. Its basis is a french
dressing and It can be varied in any
way you Hlce. Chopped watercress
and minced celery are often used in-
stead, as an addition to the ingred-
ients suggested in the recipe given
I often use these to flavor creamed
butter to spread sandwiches or
canapes. This gives a flavoring foun-
dation, no matter what is fhe rest of
the filling or garnish. One of the
easiest and best hot canapes to serve
with cocktails is made of rounds or
finger lengths of bread, spread with
ketchup butter anil then baked until
light brown and crisp.
A dasli of one or more of these
sauces is often an addition to the
tlavor of a tomato juice cocktail. I
also like a dash of tarragon vinegar
for this purpose. Have you noticed
that every hostess has her own spe-
cial recipe for this popular first
course beverage? "To taste" is the
best directions for seasoning It, but
have plenty of seasonings on hand to
make the perfect flavor.

Why the Sudden
Change to Liquid
Doctors have always recognized tho
value of the laxative whose dose can
be measured, and whose action can
be thus regulated to suit individual
The public, too, is fast returning
to the use of liquid laxatives. People
have learned that a properly pre-
pared liquid laxative brings a more
natural movement without any dis-
comfort at the time, or after.
The dose of a liquid laxative can
be varied to suit the needs of the
individual. The action can thus be
regulated. It forms no habit; you
need not take a "double dose" a day
or two later. Nor will a mild liquid
laxative irritate the kidneys.
The wrfing cathartic man often do
more harm than good.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
prescription, and is perfectly safe.
Its laxative action is based on senna
—a natural laxative. The bowels will
not become dependent on this form
of help. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
is obtainable at all druggists.
