And you, My od leir had ere ged for ex- far- any She were going and her mother told her they were to be used to kill the captured Christians, who were being persecuted by the bad Em- peror. Martins grew up and one day her mother received a letter from the Emperor Alexander who asked to marry her. But Martins had given her heart to another. She put her hand In her robe and drew out a crucifix. Time went on. Martins became more beautiful and good every day. One morning she went to see some poor people. On her way back she pased a house where the Blessed Sacrament was. She knelt down in the street and began to pray. Some Roman soldiers came down the street. They saw Mar- flna praying. They said: "She must be a Christian. Let us take her." So they took her and put her in prison. They said to her: "If you will offer sacrifice to Apollo, we will let you go." Lady Martina said, "Appolo is only an idol. I adore the one true God." But the soldiers said, "You know that the Emperor loves you very dearly. Sacrifice to the idols be- fore he hears about this." But Lady Martins only laugh- ed. In the great palace Martina stood before Alexander. He said, "Lady Martina, some one has told me that you are a Christian. There must be some mistake. Come and offer to Apollo. Then I shall know they were not telling the truth." "Great Emperor," Martina said, "I can never do such a wicked thing. I am a Christian." "Give up that name," said Alex- ander, "and I shall marry you. We shall rule the world together." Martina answered, "Why do you talk so? Long ago I chose to be- long to God. His Kingdom is not of this world. He is the King of Kings. He is the Lord of Lords. Him alone do I adore." Alexander did not believe Lady Martina. He t61d his soldiers to take her to the temple of Apollo. As she came near the horrible  idol, she raised her hand. She made the Sign of the Cross. She asked GOd to break the idol. Her prayer was hears right away. An earthquake shook the city of Rome. All the houses shook. The people rat/ out in the streets. And' in the temple the idol lay on the floor, broken into a thousand pieces. Everyone was frightened but Martlna. She saw Alexander running away. She cried, "Stay, stay, great Emperor, and help your god Apollo. See, he is in little pieces on the floor!" But the Emperor kept on run- ning. daughter, be brave. I am the God Whom you adore." The eight soldiers fell on "their knees. A moment before they had been pagans. Now they were Christians at heart. They begged Lady Martina to forgive them for hurting her so. They said to Alex- ander, "We adore the God of Mar- tina. We will never worship any other. Martina was very glad. thanked God. She told the sol- diers to be brave and die for our Lord Jesus Christ. Alexander was so angry that he had these eight soldiers killed at once. Their heads were cut off. But they went bravely one by one. They were happy for they knew that they were going stright to Heaven. Lady Martins had told them so.

Alfredo Morotti was able to reach his goal --the priesthood. He sang his first Solemn High Mass yesterday at St. LeO's church. Father Morotti, who was or- dained two weeks ago in Roches- ter, is 58 years old. He was a teacher and a salesman through South and Central America be- fore he came to New York 25 years ago and became a metal worker. Beginning his studies for the priesthood at the age of 10 at the preparatory seminary in Bologna, Italy, Father Morotti was compel- led to ay his studies aside at the age of 16 to support his orphaned and sickly brother, who is now a lawyer in Bologna. During the years of his secular employment, he constantly read books on theology. In 1935 he was permitted to enter the Seminary at Rochester by the Most Edward Mooney, now Archbishop of Detroit. He completed the reg- ular four-year course in three years. After a trip to his native city in Italy, Father Moroti will re- turn to Rochester and will be as- signed to one of the Italian par- ishes there. Annual Picnic, Mary's Parish, St. Vincents, Ark.

After i smoking they are cooked either 'by steam or in hot water, chilled, and lastly put into packages for the market. The best method for cooking frankfurts is to place them in a shallow pan, or skillc, and cover with boiling water to simmer for about 10 minutes. As they are cooked when you buy them, they !do not require much time to heat :thoroughly. When heated', drain, put some butter, or other fat, in the skillet and panbroil until they are a golden brown. Too much cooking toughens frankfurts and if the water is al- lowed to boil it will split them, allowing the meat and spice flavor to be lost. Bacon wrapped around frank- furts and fastened with toothpicks improves the flavor of broiled frankfurts and keeps the casings from becoming brittle. For out- door cooking the broiling method is best.

Place a weenie size frankfurt on each, fold over biscuit and bake 15 minutes in a hot oven (450 degrees). Serve hot. Frankfurts with Sauerkraut Cut into small strips lb. salt port and place in a kettle of cold water; cover and cook for 1 hour. Then put in 1 can of sauerkraut or 2 cups bulk sauerkraut, 1 onion sliced, and cook slowly for 1/2 hours. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, put with the sauer- kraut 1 lb. frankfurts. Serve hot with boiled potatoes. The potatoes can be peeled and cooked' with the sauerkraut if desired. Sponge Cake 2 egg whites 2 egg yolks 4 tbps. hot water 3-4 cup sugar 1-4 tsp. lemon extract 1 cup flour 1 / tsp. baking powder Beat whites until stiff and add half of the sugar. Add hot water gradually to egg yolks and beat until thick; then add remaining sugar and lemon extract gradu- ally, while beating constantly. Add whites, and fold in flour, mixed and sifted with baking powder. Turn into deep cake pan and bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for 35 minutes Quick Bran Bread 2 cups flour 3 tbps baking powder 1 tbp. sugar 1-2 tsp. salt 2 cups bran 1 tbp. shortening 1 egg yolk 1 cup milk 1-2 cup seedless raisins 1-4 tsp. baking powder 3-4 tsp. salt 1-8 tsp. pepper 1 tbp. butter Soak bread crumbs 15 minutes in milk, add beaten yolk and sea- soning; fold in the egg whites, beaten until stiff, cutting and fold- ing them into the mixture until well blended. Heat omelet pan, or skillet, butter or grease sides and bottom. Turn in mixture, spread evenly, cook slowly, occasionally turning the pan so that omelet may brown evenly on bottom. When it begins to brown on the bottom, place in a hot oven and' let it set on top. When firm to the touch, fold over and turn on a hot platter. Water is sometimes used instead of milk, as some cooks think water n,akes a more tender omelet. Beet and Tomato Salad Select beets of medium size and boil until very tender. When done, dip in cold water and peel by rubbing the hand over the beet, as the skins come off very easily when fresh boiled. Set aside to cool thoroughly. Slice, pour vine- gar over them and set in the re- frigerator. When ready to serve, place alternate layers of beets and sliced tomatoes on a crisp lettuce leaf and serve with Mayonnaise dressing. HOUSEHOLD HINTS Lemon garnishes are served with shellfish, clear soups, fish, meats, spinach, salads and beverages." Baked ham, or a boned shoulder, stuffed with well-seasoned bread- crumbs and roasted, is easy to carve and may be served hot or cold. Salads of cabbage, raw carrots, combined with cooked raisins, are both inexpensive and healthful. More and more it is becoming the custom to serve a hearty sand- wich, a cold beverage and a des- serf for luncheon or supper. A cold meat fork is the neces- sary implement that should ac- ]company a platter of cold cuts of meat. It is laid next to the plat- ter. Save hard cheese and grate it for use on macaroni, spaghetti, in omelets or sandwich spreads. Unslaked lime sprayed to moldy or dam9 cellar walls will freshen the atmosphere of the whole house. Watermelon rind can be made into a delicious spiced pickle to serve with meats or sandwiches.
