SNOW SAVES ST. PAUL MONEY.
The city of St. Paul will save thousands of
dollars as the result of the recent heavy
snowfall. The Jakes from which the city
water supply is taken are unusually high,
and there is small prospeot of the necessity
of pumping water for some time. Last year
the city spent thousands of dollars keeping
the water at the necessary height by pumping
from the artesian well systems.

OUR DAILY BREAD
by KATHERINE kurtz.
™"^™BR FAST~POT .VTOTeJ!^ 11
Though the too general use of white pota
toes, or rather the too general consumption
of the badly-cooked vegetable, is condemned
by many teachers, the average American
would consider his breakfast Incomplete with
out this popular vegetable served to some
form.
Fried Potatoes.
Frying seems to be the most common meth
od of cooking them for breakfast, and is cer
tainly the most objectionable, unles they are
very carefully done. Animal fats should not
be used In frying or sauteing -white potatoes;
they have a strong propensity for absorbing
grease, and a parboiled, soggy potato coated
and saturated with lard is an inault to civil
ization as well as a menace to health.
On the principle that the innocent suffer
with the guilty, we condemn the innocent tu
bers for the evil wrought for want of skill or
knowledge on the part of the cook.
May Not Salt Everyone,
All foods are not adapted to the use of
every one in like manner, and there are some
instances In which the potato does not agree
with the eater, be it ever so carefully cooked.
This may be due to the fact that the individ
ual does not readily digest starchy foods, and
not peculiar to the potato alone.
.Many Ways .of ; Cooking;.
Roasting or baking is -without doubt the
only way in which we can present this vege
table to the eater in the degree of perfection,
yet one would soon tire of baked potatoes
twice per day; and on some tables the tuber
appears with even greater frequency; there
fore we welcome new ways of preparing
them, especially for the breakfast table.
Baked Potato Balls.
These may be made from cold mashed pota
toes left from dinner. To two cupfuls of the
potato add one beaten egg and a little hot
cream if potatoes are very dry. Form into
round balls, roll in a little flour, place in
rows in a buttered baking pan and place in
the quick oven aud bake for fifteen minutes;
serve with drawn butter sauce.
Potato Dropa.
Prepare mashed potatoes in the usual way;
add to a pint of mashed potatoes two beaten
eggs and beat until thoroughly mixed. Do
not have the potatoes too soft. Dip a spoon
into boiling water; shake off the drops, then
take up the spoonful of the potatoes and slide
into deep, hot vegetable fat. Fry a golden
brown. Drain and serve. Nice with creamed
codfish.
Haahed Potatoes a la Delmonieo.
Chop rather fine four medium-sized boiled
potatoes. Put them into a saucepan with only
a cupful of cream, a level teaspoonful of salt,
a dash of white pepper, two tablespoonfuls of
butter and, if you like the flavor, a little
grated nutmeg. . Stir over the fire untli very
hot. Rub a baking dish with a slice of onion,
turn In the potatoes, sprinkle lightly with
bread crumbs and bake In a Quick oven until
a rich brown.
Hashed Creamed Potatoes.
Boil four medium-sized potatoes in their
Jackets until barely done; drain and remove
the skins, and while warm cut the potatoes
into small, even pieces. Put them into a
small baking dish, sprinkle over them a tea
spoonful of salt and pour over them a cupful
of hot cream. Cover with a thin layer of
bread crumbs and cheese. Dot with a few
bits of butter and bake a delicate brown.
Potatoes With Brown Sauce.
Cut cold boiled potatoes in small cubes.
Mince a little onion and fry without browning
in two tablespoonfuls of butter. Take out the
onion, make a brown sauce with the butter
in the pan, two level tablespoonfuls of flour
and a cup and half of stock. Season with
half teaspoonful of salt, dash of pepper and
a little finely minced parsley. Add the pota
toes and simmer in the sauce for ten minutes.
Potatoes en Surprise.
Select large-sized potatoes and bake them
in their skins until they are nearly done,
cut nearly through the potato at one end!
but do not entirely sever the piece, scoop out
the center of the potato and fill the hollow
space with a thin slice of broiled bacon sea
soned with pepper and tightly rolled closo
down the half-severed end of the potato, re
turn to oven and bake five minutes longer.
Potato Pancake*.
Pare, wash and grate twelve raw potatoes;
cover with cold water and let stand for sev
eral minutes, carefully drain off the water
let these stand until the starch settles, then
pour off water and add the starch to the po
tatoes, with salt and pepper, two tablespoon
ful3 of thick sour cream ana the beaten yolks
of three eggs. Mix well. Beat the egg whites
to a stiff frjth and add the potatoes slowly
to them.
Put enough vegetable fat in an iron frying
pan to cover the bottom, and when fat is
hot put in enough of the potato mixture to
make a cake about as large as a saucer.
Bake a light brown on both sides, then trans
fer to a heated plate and serve at once. Serve
with hamburger steaks and apple sauce.
Potatoes an Gratln.
Take a quart of cold potatoes cut into cubes.
Butter a baking dish and put in the potatoes'
Season with salt and pepper. Melt four level
tablespoonfuls of butter; add four level table
spoonfuls of Hour and stir until smooth and
bubbling. Add a pint of milk, season with a
level teaspoonful of salt and two dashes of
white pepper. Stir until It boils, then pour
over the potatoes. Cover with breadcrumbs
or grated cheese and bake in the oven uatii
nicely browned.

MUSIC AND CHARACTER
Mothers' League Hears a Paper on
I'; •.';.; Their Relation.
The Mothers' League of Simpson M. E.
church met in the kindergarten rooms Thurs
day afternoon. Mrs. Ada Adams i Loekln
gave a talk on "The Value of Music in the
Development: of ' Character." "Music is one
of the.many forms of education which has
made the high civilization of the present day
possible," . said. Mrs. Lockin. < "It has al
ways been- a part of the life and growth of
civilization. • It. has. rocked the cradle,
blessed the homes, gladdened the ears, bright
ened the toil of each generation. Music
| stands for independent state of consciousness.
it creates the atmosphere in which thoughts
are born, it deals with the mystic state in
which thought is steeped and colored. No
age, no sentient creature, has been quite
without a sense of musical sound as the lan
guage of emotion.
"The study of good music teaches dili
gence, accuracy and precision. The physical
development is largely benefited as practice
brings into play muscles not used in other
work. It also serves as sense training. Music
trains us in the exercise of our emotions just
as the gymnasium trains us in the exercise of
our limbs. Music also disciplines and con
trols emotions. The time is not far distant
when music will be given to the toiling
masses to teach them to govern their emo
tions and cultivate habits of self control. In
New York city Frank Damrosch has organ
ized classes in music in the slums and free
concerts are given of the best classes of
music and by the finest performers. Mr.
Damrosch speaks most highly of the work in
the public schools by the Ladies' Thursday
Muslcale of Minneapolis."
At the close of the paper a program, typical
of those which the educational committee of
the Ladies' Thursday Musicale is giving !n
the schools, was presented. Miss Nellie Lil
ley gave two piano numbers and Mrs. Lockln
sang Coombs' "Four Leaf Clover," Porter's
"All Through the Night," Nevin's "Rosary"
and Hawley's "A Rose Fable."
NAPOLEON AND LOUISIANA
Dr. Hosuiet- Showed the Secret
Spring* of the Great Purchase.
Last evening Dr. J. K. Hosmer gave his pa
per on "The Secret History of the Louisiana
Purchase" at the Business Women's Club.
The paper is based on the little known mem
oirs of Lucien Bonaparte, which have only
been translated into English by fragments.
The transfer of this vast tract was decided
by a battle which Is nameless, although, an
empire was at stake and the combatants were
the three members of the Bonaparte family
most interested in the transaction. Napoleon,
Joseph and Lucien. The scene of action was
a bathroom in the Tuiieries, which Napoleon
was occupying as first consul. The minute
details of the stormy and momentous inter
view between the brothers is related by Lu
cien, who gives the event its true significance,
lor it affected not only the future of America
but of France, being the first great act in
which the first consul decided to usurp unlim
ited power and act without the consent of
the constitutional sanction of the chambers.
To-day, instead of <he regular Saturday

the elubrooms by Mrs. Louise A. Stark
weather. Luncheon was served by Dorner to
thirty guests.

and Nellie Brett, who gave a piano duet;
Miss Mac Kerr, vocal solo; Miss Vena
Stetson and Hamilton Broughton, violin
duets, and by the orchestra.
Day Ira Okes, a member of the class,
wrote the play, "The Red Rose," a histori
cal drama in three scenes. It is a very
creditable piece of work and well
adapted for production by young
people. The succession of pictures
was effective, the situations being
interesting and the scenery and cos
tuming appropriate and adequate. The
play opened at the court of King Rene of
Anjou, the king being on his throne re
ceiving the homage of his subjects, who
sang a pleasing chorus and executed a
graceful flower dance. Princess Yolande
enters and makes a strong plea for the
king's daughter, Queen Margaret of Eng
land, who has met severe reverses in the
War of the Roses. The king is unable to
give her assistance. In the next scene
in Queen Margaret's court the queen is al
most in despair, when help comes from an
unexpected source, the Earl of Warwick,
who has previously sided with her enemies.
His help, however, was not sufficient to
win the day, and the Red Rose went down
in the humiliation, of defeat.
The part of the queen was taken by Miss
Helen Riggs, who acted the part with great
dignity and put much force and spirit Into
her interpretation. Her reading was espe
cially good. The young players entered
into the spirit of the play admirably and
read their lines well, the touches of com
edy being "especially good. The leading
parts were taken by Ray Marshall as King
Rene; Miss Bessie Harnden as Princess
Yolande; Ray Van Cleve, Prince Edward;
Day Ira Okes, Earl of Warwick; Chester
Martin, Chastlllon. The others taking
part were Misses Leilah Stevens, Alice
Thomson, Louise Winchell, Eva Wilson,
Corinne McMillan, Ais Lockwood and Bes
sie McVey; Messrs. Charl Herrman, Fred
Copelin, Roland Wernich, Charles Phillips,
George Gladden and Orrin Young.
The play was put on under the direction
cf Clayton D. Gilbert, and the dancing and
incidental music were arranged and di
rected by Mrs. R. T. McAdams. Pankopf's
orchestra furnished the music, playing a
soft accompaniment through the whole of
the last act.

WATCH FOR PARTRIDGE
WyniHii-Partritlg*- Eiupluyrn Give
Him a Present.
H. E. Partridge, who for the past twelve
years has been general manager of the big
dry goods house of Wyman, Partridge &
Co., severs his connection with the firm
to-day. At noon the regiment of em
ployes of the big house surrounded Mr.
Partridge and presented him with a fine
pair of binoculars and handsome gold
watch. The latter is a Swiss repeater.
J*mes F. Jordan of the credit department
made the presentation speech, in which
be assured Mr. Partridge that he carried
with him the esteem and regard of his
coworkers, which included employers and
employes. Mr. Partridge was taken by
surprise but "caught his feet" in a clever
manner. His response throughout was
clever, apt, and appreciative.
In the work of building up the big busi
ness of Wyman, Partridge & Co., H. E.
Partridge has been a potent factor. Dur
ing the twelve years in which he has been
general manager he has shown a wonder
ful capacity for detail. He had charge of
the construction of the big building which
the firm now occupies. It was much
against the wishes of the firm that he re
signed, but Mr. Partridge believed that
his health demanded his first considera
tion. His plans include an extended va
cation for several months, during which
he will visit the Pacific coast, fish for
salmon near New Brunswick, and also in
vade the fishing grounds of Idaho and
Wisconsin. He leaves for Idaho next
week. He may in the course of a year
engage in business for himself, but his
plans on that point are indefinite.

CLERGY MINISTER
TO THE SICK
From Many Parsonages Come Words
of Praise for Paine's Celery
Compound.
More practical work and shorter doc
trinal sermons distinguish the pulpit of
to-day. Bishops and plain ministers of
the gospel are putting tremendous energy
into the cause of good government and
public health.
The injunction "Minister to the sick
and suffering" is being literally obeyed.
Clergymen are investigating remedies
as they have never done before, taking
them, themselves and family, frankly
recommending the valuable ones and con
demning the worthless.
Rev. W. E. Aldridge of Birmingham,
Ala., says he considers It his duty to let
his people know about Paine's celery
compound, as he speaks from personal
knowledge. He says:
Gentlemen—l had been afflicted for ten
years with what I thought to be heart
disease, but after having the physicians
examine me, I learned that I was almost
dead with indigestion. They told me that
they could give me medicine that would
relieve me, but there was no permanent
cure. Then I began using Paine's celery
compound, which gave me imemdiate re
lief, and now I am well and enjoying good
health. I can recommend Paine's celery
compound to be the best remedy for all
ailments I ever used, and furthermore,
I tell my people if they will use the com
pound freely, they will have no doctor'B
bills to pay.
Rev. W. E. ALDRIDGB.

Clergymen in every denomination ara
recommending to their parishioners these
March days the great spring remedy that
makes people well, earnestly indorsing
the work of Dartmouth college's generous
scientist, and frankly lending their in
fluence to that of the best physicians
advising the use of Paine's celery com
pound now spring has come.
As soon as one has fairly begun to use
'Paine's celery compound, every day Is a
step toward assured health. Nervous,
unhappy, and feeble persons find their
flesh becomes more solid, a more healthy
color takes the place of the waxy, sal
low look, and there comes an increase
in the volume of the blood and an im
proved normal appetite because of thla
rapid feeding of the entire nervous sys
tem.
Clerks, employers, lawyers, doctors,
mothers of families, hard-working men
and women in every state and country,
and hosts of brain-workers—the most in
telligent part of every community—are
to-day taking Paine's celery compound
with the happiest results to relieve them
selves of rheumatism, neuralgia, nervous
exhaustion, dyspepsia, sleeplessness and
low spirits.
Get rid of languor, clear the muddy,
unhealthy skin, plump out the body, and
get back to a normal, vigorous condition
with Paine's celery compound—and begin
now. March is the month when It 10
easiest to begin health.
