For Cake Making
There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco tan be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc., merely by straining out the food particles
after each frying. '
Crisco cives pastrv a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richnessat smaller cost. It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.

I should say that he is about 40
years of age, though looking much
younger, boyish eff hand, natural
and unassuming. Not b v any
chance would you take him for
the Prince of the world's siory
tellers rather for a drummer or a
live insurance man, or even a book
agent, except that when you talk
to him, you tealize that he would
n't make hit salt at any one of
these professions; he is too modest!
In his talk, he is easy, natural,
direct and simple, with a little
hesitation at times as though he
knew there was a better word if he
never allows himself to be sepatat
ed from bis books. He keeps one
on hand all the time as a resource
for anv lull or dilay in the pro
gram r.nJ this redeems many an
hour that would otherwise be wast

hours a day, in the morning, rain
or shine. Sundays or holidays, the
only exception being when he is
off on a trip like this Congression

generally grow tiresome; he would
be glad to get back to his work
again. This two hours, of course,

whole of his activity. The business

out the whole world, involves a Jot

While he escapes as much of this
as possible, he still finds that he
has a great deal to do that is far
from straight literature.
With his well known socialistic
sympathies, it is not to be wonder

where the difficulties of practical
farming have been impressed
on him, difficulties and problems
that run through the wide range
of our own sugar estate problems

some other form, that for the time
being is slang or "bad grammar',
or "off color" and is therefore
frowned on by the literary authori

right on serenely and conies out

must be altered, grudinglv, to meet

had put in a great deal more than

ever would, but they had one re

steadily improving the place and
would leave the land in much bet

when they found it, it had been
ruined by slovenly cultivation.
Next to the problems of ranch

be hopelessly left behind.
For generations we have been
struggling over the form "It is I
instead of "It's me.'' Of course I
always said "it's me," but when I
finally took formally to literature,
and dressed up as it were, I felt
that I must conform to the rules.
Accordingly I devoted myself seri
ously to the correction of my
speech. For years 1 struggled with
myself, until finally I got so I
could say "It is I" easily, uncon
sciously. And just about that time
the popular will had prevailed, and
and "it's me" is now admitted to
be correct, in spite of the gram
