PLAN WHICH MAY REVOLUTION
IZE INDUSTRIAL WORLD.
Missourian Said to Have Perfected
Method of "Burning" Water, End

Creation of Power.
St. Louis.-A native-born Missouri.
an proposes to solve the fuel problem
and revolutionize the industrial world
by burning water for fuel.
He proposes to abolish coal mining
and coal hauling, to make possible an
ocean leviathan which gill cross from
New York to Liverpool in three days.
to have at hand always and every
where a never-ending fuel free of cost
to all comers.
Capt. Warren's scheme has the in
dorsement of Nikola Tesla, that fa.
mous wizard of science. The captain
has recently returned to New York
from a two years' absence on a sailing
vessel, and has brought with him the
crystallized result of many months of
study and research. While he has been
sailing the deep or alternately leading
the strenuous and simple life ashore
he- has steadily pursued his experi
ments, building boats and apparatus
for the purpose, and now he is pre
oared to give the results to the
The invention is nothing less revolu
tionary than manufacturing fuel out of
The world now secures power from
water by utilizing its weight on an
old=fashioned water wheel or a modern
turbine. It also utilizes the power of
water by turning it into steam. Capt.
Warren's invention separates the
CAPT Z. C WARP2N
chemical constituents of water and
takes advantage of the explosive
capacity of these elements in recom
bining to produce power
"Burn water," Capt. Warren says,
"only in the sense in which we burn
carbonic gas. Both are products of
combustion. The constitdent ele
ments of each are combustible when
isolated. The only problem is to sep
arate or isolate them after they have
once been combined. This nature is
constantly doing, and we have only to
accelerate or short circuit her pro
cesses in order to restore immediately
these combustible substances to their
elemental statel and have them ready
to reunite at out bidding in the phe
nomenon of combustion. Burning, or
combustion, is simply the manifesta
tion of the action of chemical affinity.
We burn the elemental substances,
hydrogen and oxygen, by bringing
them together under conditions favor
able to the operation of the affinity,
which causes them to unite in a new
chemical compound, which, when con
densed, is water. We separate these
elements by subjecting their com
poundi water, to conditions which
overcome or neutralize this affinity.
"When we can burn hydrogen for
power, when the industrial world awa
kens to the fact that prodigious expen
ditures for coal and liquid fuel are
entirely unnecessary, and that there is
right within our grasp an unlimited
supply~ of fuel substance available
practically without cost, for it is self
producing, there will be a revolution
in the industrial world. When the
centuries-old theories of . the inde
structibility of matter and the con
servation of energy and matter have
once become really understood by
men, we will witness the utter collapse
and extinction of one of the oldest and
most gigantic of human industries, the
mining of coal.
"The secret of the production of hy
drogen for fuel lies in the successful
manipulation of that mysterious force
in nature called chemical affinity of
elements, in other words, the isolation
of the hydrogen under certain condi
tions and its recombination through
combustion with the oxygen through
which it was originally associated in
the form of water."

SWEETNESS NOT ALL ALIKE.
Difference for Which Allowance Must
Always Be Made.
In testing recipes, allowance must
be made for the differences in flavors,
strength of ingredients, and purity of
materials used. For instance: The
so-called strained honey, bspecially the
kind already strained and to be had in
bottles and tumblers, is rarely ever
pure honey, is very strong and
"biting," and apt to impart a disagree
able tang when even a very little too
much is used. If one can obtain
honey directly from the comb, the
recipe may be followed. Sugars vary;
powdered sugar often has flour or corn
,starch mixed with it, and will not
sweeten properly; granulated sugar
may be very coarse, or fine, and when
moist, as some of it is, weighs more
heavily than the dry kind. Molasses
is often interpreted by the inexperi
enced to mean any kind of syrup, from
corn to cane and sorghum; but corn
syrup (glucose) is not as sweetening
as cane sugar, and sorghum is strong,
and not always of agreeable flavor.
Molasses is usually meant to designate
the sugar-cane syrup. Beet sugar is
not as sweet as cane sugar. The
proper use of these different qualities
can only be the result of experience
and personal good judgment.-Ex
Beat two eggs well, add one cup of
sugar and one tablespoonful of melted
butter, and beat again. Add half a
cup of milk, mix two tablespoonfuls of
baking powder with one and a half
cups of flour, and stir it into the egg
mixture. Flavor with one teaspoonful
of lemon extract. Beat it well and
bake in a round, shallow pan. When
cool split it with a long, sharp knife,
and fill it with a cream that is made
while the -cake is baking. Boil one
cup of milk, wet one tablespoonful of
cornstarch in a little cold milt, stir
it into the boiling milk, and cook over
hot water ten minutes, stirring often.
Beat one egg light, add two table
spoonfuls sugar and a pinch of salt,
and stir into the thickened milk. Cook
one minute, stir in one teaspoonful of
butter and one of vanilla, and set
away to cool.
Sift into your mixing bowl a quart
of bread flour, two heaping teaspoons
of baking powder and a little salt.
Then work into the flour a piece of
butter or lard as big as two eggs. If
you use lard mix with sweet milk, and
if you use butter you can mix with
water and a little milk to make a
dough soft enough to pat out about
three-quarters of an inch thick.
Sprinkle it with brown sugar and bits
of butter generously and roll it up
and cut Same as you would slice a
jelly roll. Put into a well-buttered tin.
Lay each slice in the tin. They are
to be eaten hot. Bake in a quick oven
same as any biscuit.
A Wholesome Gruel.
Comparatively few cooks know how
to make, appetizing and wholesome
gruel for invalids. One that is par
ticularly nourishing and may be quite
delicious is made from sago.
Put two tablespoonfuls of sago into
a double boiler and add a pint of cold
water. Boil until it thickens, stirring
constantly to prevent lumpiness or
Just before taking from the stove
add a little sugar if sweetening is liked
and when cold flavor with a tablespon
ful of sherry. If wine is not used a
little nutmeg can be sprinkled ovdr
the top before serving.
Steamed Brown Bread.
Mix together one cup Indian meal,
one cupful rye meal, one-half cup
white flour, a half teaspoonful salt,
the same amount soda, a half cup mo
lasses and a cup and a half sweet
Beat well and turn into greased
molds, filling about two-thirds full.
Boil 15 minutes in the cooker vessel
with the.water coming nearly to the
top of the molds. Lift carefully into
the cooker, cover and cook four hours.
Take the cans out, turn out the leaves,
brush over with melted butter and
brown lightly in the oven.
For Cleaning Blankets.
Shave up a half bar of any good
laundry soap, add four tablespoonfuls
borax and a little water and melt over
fire. Then add four tablespoonfuls
household ammonia, put in tub and
half fill tub with cold water. Pitt in
blankets or other articles to be
cleaned, let soak four hours. Then
rinse in water containing four table
spoonfuls ammonia. Do not wring. The
articles will be just like new. A pair
of light-colored wool trbusers were
washed in this way and did not shrink
Four eggs, two cups brown sugar,
two cups flour, one-half cup melted
chocolate, one cup nuts, one teaspoon
ful vanilla, one teaspoonful baking
powder. Mix eggs, sugar and melted
chocolate together, then add flour and
baking powder sifted together, and
then vanilla; lastly, nuts. Bake in one
sheet on buttered pan and cut in
squares when almost cold.
Choose large sour apples, wash
thoroughly, wipe and core; then with
the corer or a suitable knife enlarge
the holes left by removing the core.
Chop cold chicken fine, season with
thyme, salt and pepper, moisten with
cream and mix with fine bread
crumbs. Fill the apples with this and
bake. Serve cold on lettuce leaves
with mayonnaise dressing.
To Remove Tendons of Fowlas.
When dressing a turkey before re
moving the feet break the bone about
an inch below the joint and place the
feet in a clamp or some place to hold
them solid and take hold of the upper
part of the leg and pull, and all the
tendons will come out with the feet,
leaving the leg as tender and nice to
eat as the second joint.
One cup of sugar, eight tablespoon
fuls of sweet milk, two tablespoonfuls
of shaved chocolate, butter size of a
chestnut; boil about three minutes
and stir until cold. Put on cake when
both cake and filling are cold. If
boiled a little too long add a few
drons of milk while stirring.
The sketch on the left shows one of.the new coat costumes, in which the
skirt and bodice part are joined and put om together. Our model is in cedar
green tweed. The bodice is on the lines of a blouse, having three tucks on
each shoulder, stitched to waist at back and bust in front; 'the, slight fulness
is pleated into the band. The fronts are buttoned from the waist to bust, then
above the bust the buttons are put on for ornament only; the waist is set
to a band to which also the skirt is attached; buttons and buttonholes are
used for fastening quite 'down the front. Hat of stretched satin lined with
velvet, and trimmed with a handsome feather mount.
Materials required: 5% yards cloth 48 inches wide, 8 yards satin 42
inches wide, 2% yards passementerie, 1 dozen yards cord.
Here is an evening coat for girl from 14 to 16 years of ago. A pretty
soft old rose-colored satin cashmere is used for the coat; it is lined through
out with mercerized sateen in white. The form is that of a long loose sacque
with sleeves to the wrist. The deep turn-over collar is of ermine with loops
and long ends hanging in front.
Materials required: 4 yards 46 inches wide, 4 yards double width sateen,
collar, and 2% yards ribbon.
DRESS FOR SCHOOLGIRL.
In Navy-Blue Serge, with Pretty and
For school wear a dress of this style
would be exceedingly useful: Navy
blue serge is chosen for it, the skirt
is plaited, the plaits are wide and far
apart. A fancy braid trims the foot
of skirt. The vest is of tucked silk,
the tucks being arranged in groups of
fours, a strap of material and braid
edges it. Three small tucks are made
on each shoulder; the plain sleeve is
set into a turned-lBack cur, trimmed
Materials required: 6% yards 48
inches wide, 8 yards braid, 1 yard silk.
The Wastebasket Habit.
A good sized wastebasket should be
continually close to every sewing ma
chine. Then it is easy to form the
habit of dropping all scraps, clippings,
and the ends of thread into it just as
the scissors make them, instead of
leaving them to blow here and there
and litter up the floor until sweeping
day. Twice handling anything is a
waste of time and energy and we
Americans have neither to spare.
Form the wastebasket habit at once!-.
The Little Collar Button.
"Little, but oh my!" So annoying
when it is not flat enough and jabs
into the back of one's neck all day;
and even more objectionable-for a
woman can endure a good deal of
physical anguish-when it presses
against the outside linen of one's
hand-embroidered collar and leaves an
indentation that rubs itself gray
against one's coat lining.
Just obviate the whole difficulty by
sewing to every shirtwaist collar band
at the center back a small flat linen
covered button that is of English man
ufacture. It is the flattest button on
the market, and has a metal middle
through which to sew instead of a

molds the arms is cut in one with the
shoulder. The fitting is achieved by
tke under part. The one-piece effect
wonderfully shapes the shoulder. I
noted this new sleeve in a gown worn
by one of a group of women. Of deer
puce colored velvet the princess tunic
trailed beautifully limp in its slender
pointed tail. Instead of buttoning in
the ordinary fashion at the back of the
arm, the sleeve closed on the inside
seam under a line of silk loops and
oval olives. A tiny guimpe of tinted
tulle laid over gold net filled the small
round at the neck. Rich gold and sil

colored silk .embroidery in relief
adorned the whole front of the cor
sage. Extremely chic was a third

was hemmed with a band of skunk

guimpe of tucked ecru mull that
mounted into a high-curved choker.
From the edge of the square a nar
row tablier fell to the belt. Buttoned
on each with large cord loops it cun
ningly concealed the closing. With
the advent of the one-piece gown
for afternoon street wear, the uncom.
fortable and untidy back closing is
disappearing. On nearly all such
gowns the closing is marked by a line
of buttons set straight or in fanciful
fashion.-From a Paris Letter to
Long Fringe on Frocks.
There is a wide return to the use of
fringe of all widths on indoor gowns.
In other days it was used on street
frocks, but it is to be hoped for the.
sake of convenience and comfort that
this fashion will never return.
It is a pretty one, however, for dress
costumes. The trouble about mak
ing use of it is that the fringe is not
easy to find. Shops do not offer large
quantities of it, and the range of colors
found is not wide.
White fringe is to be found, and is
easily dyed to match the cloth ot the
frock. It is used as an edge to bodice
drapery, to tunic, to sleeves, and as
a finish to ornaments that are put well
above the waist line on princess

was seen at only 98 Cents -a yard.
There was also narrow flouncing to
match. Many bargains in allover em.
broideries are to be found. Now is
.the time to buy for blouses or frocks.

and fine transparent silk stockings
