dance. Mrs. Linton read with good
effect James Whitcomb Riley's "Old
Glory," as a prelude to the singing of
"The Star-Spangled Banner", accom
panied by the several instrumental
ists. The various stalls, of which there
were five, not including the very at
tractive punch and lemonade booth,
nor the refreshments booth which,
for the greater comfort of guests, was
in the gallery were all decorated in
good taste in patriotic colors of red,
white, and blue. The general decora

LIBERTY CATERING 9
BY MAUI WOMEN
A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpose In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armies In Europe
AT THE THEATERS '
8 . .j
Before vegetables and fruits give
out, in times of food stringency, ap
pears the shortage of fats. This has
been the experience of Germany and
England in particular. It is none too
soon for the American housewife to
begin to conserve and preserve the
fats, which are absolutely essential to
health. Millions of tons of valuable
fats now go to waste.
The United States Department of
Agriculture at Washington supplies
valuable information along this line.
Us bulletin No. 4G9, "Fats and Their
Economical Use in the Home," should
be in every housekeeper's hands. It
will be sent by the Bureau of Publica
tions of the Department at Washing
ton while the supply holds out.
Much fat may be saved by home ren
dering of the trimmings from fat
meat. The following method of ren
dering fats may be applied in the
home: The fat is cut finely with an
ordinary household meat-chopper or
sausage- grinder and is then heated in
a double boiler until completely melt
ed. The melted fat is then strained
through a rather thick cloth (medium
fine huckaback, for instance) to re
move the finely divided bits of tissue.
The advantage of this method is, that
since the material to be rendered is
finely divided the fat separates readi
ly from the inclosing tissue at a tem
perature very little above its melting
point, and there is no danger of
scorching it as in the older open
After the fat is rendered it must
usually "be clarified. A fairly success
ful household method for clarifying
fats is as follows: Melt the fat with
at least an equal volume of water and
heat for a short time at a moderate
temperature, with occasional stirring.
Let the mixture cool, remove the lay
er of fat, and scrape off bits of meat
and other material which may adhere
to the underside.
Undesirable odors and flavors can
be decreased in intensity or removed,
if not pronounced, by heating the fats
with a good grade of charcoal. To
each pound of chopped, unrendered
fat add twelve pieces of clean, hard
wood charcoal, about the size of a
walnut, and render the fat in a double
boiler as described above. Allow the
charcoal to remain in the melted fat
for about two hours and stir the mix
ture occasionally. It is necessary to
strain the fat through flannel or
other closely woven cloth to remove
all the fine particles of charcoal.
Rancid odors, if not too pronounced,
may be satisfactorily removed by
this method. If the odor Is very pro
nounced, more charcoal is needed, and
the mixture requires longer heating.
It is interesting to note that the
characteristic yellow color of the beef
fat may be removed by this method,
and a white, odorless fat secured.
Receive Fresh Impetus
A fresh consignment of seeds for
the Children's Gardens Department of
the Maui County Fair & Racing As

Mathews, director of that department,

"The Silent Partner"
"The Silent Partner" is a powerful
drama which teaches the great lesson
of loyalty in business. The story is
intensely dramatic in its conception
and has been splendidly presented by
the Lasky Company. There is a
beautiful love-story woven into the
tale of loyalty, for the little stenograp

ployer, though he does not even sus
pect it. When his own wife proves
unworthy of his devotion, the man
learns the truth and the girl's self
denial reaps its reward.
At the opening of the story Sander
son is a minister. David Stires is
signing his will making Jessica his
sole, heir, thereby disinheriting his
dissolute son Hugh. Sanderson learn
ed to love Jessica, later Hugh returns
home and succeeds in getting his
father's forgiveness, he marries Jes

Margaret MacLean, one of the chil
dren in the incurable ward of a hospi
tal. She has been named after the
head surgeon, Dr. Robert MacLean.
The Doctor is greatly interested in
Margaret's case and performs a suc
cessful operation to straighten her
spine. Margaret is sent to school and
then to study to become a nurse.
The Doctor sends his son, Bob, to
Paris to study surgery. At the age
of eighteen, Margaret is a nurse and
attentively watches over the invalids
telling them wonderful fairy stories,
much to the chagrin of the head nurse.
Dr. MacLean dies suddenly, the
head nurse taking charge until Bob
reaches home. When he does arrive,
Margaret is surprised to find that he
does not agree with her idea of enter
taining the children. Finally, when
he announces that he is going to dis
pense with the ward, she throws off
her cap and apron and leaves.
Margaret has established herself in
a small room and has made several
unsuccessful attempts to secure em
ployment. Finally, the employment
agency sends her to a place in the
country. As she stands waiting at
the door of the big house, she reads
a sign "Margaret MacLean'a Home
