'Ccncdian Settlement Where Women
Carry On Oldtime Industry.
At the little Canadian settlement of Ojibwa, which
la less than an hour's ride by trolley from Detroit,
is conducted one of the most interesting and pict
uresque Industries In America. Her* more than
three hundred French women, both young and old,
knit many thousands cf pairs of mittens, gloves
and Eocka each year. Yet nowhere In the whole
aetUement is there the hum of a single knitting
jnachino. Throughout its entire length of more
than flre miles the Ojibwa settlement appears to
■ j:e a peaceful, old-fashioned farming country. A

.tjaMad t3ta times, comes the sharpest competition
'sslt "i»y some of the largesit knitting mills In Cart
ada and the United States. By these knitters are
made nearly all the gloves anfl socks which are
■worn by the famous Xorthwest Mounted Police. By
them are supplied the m:u«-ns worn by the workers
to nearly every one of thn mines and lumber camps
of the frozen North. In Winnipeg, Et, John's, Van
ooover and Prince Albert, along the Yukon and
iSlcJEenzle rivers and alons Hudson Bay their prod
ucts are regarded as Indispensable.
The honios »i the settlement comprise about a
-Titt&tfred and fifty houses, and in them are 805 knit
ters. The average production of these women is
'chout twelve thousand dossn pairs of socks, mlt
iteos attd sieves annually, and for their labor they
veceJve a.ri annual compensation of about $14,500.
«r nearly $48 a year for each knitting woman. To
Snodern housewives thiß w<>uM undoubtedly seem a
.very small sum in return for so much labor, but to
■the old-fashioned French women of Ojlbwa It Is
rvery sstisfsetary. <m their little farms these peo
tile Uv*> tha slmnlmst of lives, and their wanta are
ew. They spend little money, and nre quite con
sent tr> earn little. An expert among the Ojibwa
Jcnltrlng women can. if she gives most of her time
■to the work, knit from four to five pairs of the
iieevt<_-st grade ot men's mittens In a day, and
tnooe who are not quite so proficient can easily
finish, from two to four pairs of heavy mittens or
from three to five pairs of the cheaper grades In
»ne day. At this rate the women can make from
Sjo to bO cents a day.
For majiy generations this hand knitting of
sj[tov«-s and |jopi»>r>- has been a part of the house- '
life's daily work among the French settlers of this
district. ITntil about a quarter of a century ago it
•was almost unheard at for one of these people to

•woman had learned the art of knitting from her
mother and had. in turn, taught it to her children.

jßßjaaUea the Idea of employing- all of this wasted
eaei«y. He bought a few doeen pairs of gloves
and socks ami shipped them to "Winnipeg. The
email shipments were quickly sold and the demand
tor more grew steadily. Mr. Pa^e then canvassed
the Wench eettlement. With each v.uman he made
a, contract to buy all of her knitting, he to furnish
the yarn and she. to make the goods at aa average
race cf nln« cants a pair. Mr. Page now employs
the women In the OJibwa settlement, besides three
hundred others, scattered throughout the country,
and chips about 6Q0.000 pairs ot heavy gloves, mit

The Canadian Women's Tims Club has but re

convention at "Winnipeg this summer, giving the
members from all parts of Canada a unique op

added to the egg-white in beating. If the sh-rbet

Various Recipes for TT?ing Caviar, the De
light of Epicures.
A well known New York dealer says that house
wives are apt to return the caviar they have pur
chased because it is black. They imagine that it
Is tainted or has turned that color through contact
with the tin can it cornea in and. therefore, must
be unfit for use. That one who is unacquainted
with It should be alarmed at Its appearance is
not to be wondered at. It also has a peculiar fla
vor, but several most savory dishes can be made
with it. As is well known, caviar is prepared from
the roe of the sturgeon. The species used for gen
uine Russian caviar inhabit the Caspian and Black
seas. Astrakhan is the principal place where it is
prepared and 400.000 pounds of It have been put up
In the Caspian fishery in one year.
On purchasing a can of caviar open it and turn
the contents out of the tin onto a saucer, leaving
it exposed to the air for several hours before using.
This will Improve the flavor. An excellent relish
is made as follows: Mix a small can of caviar
with half Its quantity of chopped young onions
spree 4 upon waferUk* slices of toast, squeeze a
little lemon Juice over the caviar, place a small
lettuce leaf over each slice of toast, then on top
of al^-toast. caviar and lettuce— place a few slices
of hard boiled egg.
For another relish, scald and skin two or three
red peppers. Mash them to a pulp. Cut pieces of
toast into cubes, spread them with the pepper
pulp and cover with a layer of caviar. Place on a
dish and garnish with thin slices of hard boiled
ergs, chopped chives and parsley.
For caviar on toast prepare six small rounds of
bread half an Inch thick by freeing the slices from
their crusts and cutting them round with a cookie
cutter. Then press a smaller cutter half way
through the bread and scrape the crumbs from the
Inner round, leaving the sides and bottom intact.
Place the rounds of bread upon the upper grating
of a hot oven. When well browned, fill the cavity
in each slice with the following mixture: Stir into
two large tablespoonfuls of caviar one teaspoonful
of lemon juice, one-quarter of a teaspoonful of
curry powder and ono-quarter of a teaspoonful of
paprika. Stir thi3 mixture over the tire, and
when the relish Is ready to serve place upon hot
saucers. Another filling Is made as follows: Put
two large tablespoonfuls of caviar in a saucepan
with one tablespoonful of cream, anil stir carefully
until It Is very hot. but not boiling. After pouring
it on the toast, garnish with radishes or oliv.s.
To make caviar butter, cream two tablespoonfuls
of fresh sweet butter and add one teaspoonful of
lemon Juice, a good dash of paprika and three
large tablespoonfuls of caviar. This mixture Is
very Kood for sandwiches or to 6erve with plain
bread or toast.
Club sandwiches are made by cutting white bread
in thin, even sttces. spreading one-third of the
number of slices with caviar Dutter and another
third with cream mayonnaise that is thickly
sprinkled with minced ham and olives. Eutter the
remaining slices of bread. Place the ailcea spread
with mayonnaise over the slices spread with caviar,
and then place a lettuce leaf on top or each and
cover with the plain slices of bread. This, as will
be seen, makes a sandwich of three layers.
