BEST :BREAB.:BAKER IN

(EDITOR'S NOTE Mrs. Stuart
has just won the bread-baking prjze
at the Ohio state fair. She is 70 years
old, and Jives on a farm. She has a
reputation as a fine all-around, cook.
After getting her blue ribbon, she
drove home alone 45 miles.)
By Mrs. Mary Stuart.
It takes years of experimenting to
make a good bread baker. Lots of
women- using the same recipe and
following the same general method
don't get the same results at all. But
that's because they don't do it EX
If the recipe is good, all you've got
to do ito experiment till you learn
just how to ap'ply it, and then, baking
good bread will become second na
ture to you. I don't think I could,
spoil a batch of bread if I tried.
Here's the way I make it: To make
five loaves, I peel three small pota
toes and boil them in about two
quarts' of water with a tablespoon of
salt, one of sugar and one of flour.
When the potatoes are cooked, I
mash them very fine, and when the
mixture is blood-warm I break a cake
(of yeast in it.
I let this stand over night. Next
morning I mix it with thlTflour, and
let the dough stand till it has, doubled
in size. Then I knead, it 'stiff and
place it in the pans v
I don't setf,anyi"special time for
baking the loaves I just bake them
till they're ,done..
Now, if stands to "resonthat any
woman ' who goes at it -intelligently
can learn.' by this method to, bake just
as good bread. as Tcan. But-it takes
patience and careful observation, so
you can! know just what your mistakes-have,
beenand ayoidhem next
time. ',"' - , " ( " , ,
It "may '-tak'e several years -but
when"1 you finally learn the-secret,
you've got itjfor your whole,lifetime.
BREAD AND WATER FOR WIFE DESERTERS
We're not sure that a judge in MilwaukeeJiasnt found part of thecure
for. the philanderings of amatory married men. ' -
A chap with a wife'and small child ranaway with a comely -single
"woman7 as Diggs did. He, too, crossed the-s;ate line, bututhey didn't get
after him under the Mann act the Wisconsinlaw'was ample. Spite of his
wife's tearful pleas, the court imposed a six months' sentence.'to pe followed
by an J.8 .months' probation, and ordered that-for the first .week-'of the
sentence the eloper should be fed on bread andfwater. -
This treatment isn't ideal, we admit It"is"cruel,toward.the wife, whom
it robs of support; and Wisconsin would do well to copyOhio's new law,
which puts wife deserters to work and turns their-earnings' over to the wives.
But that bread-and-water feature strikes us.as-an inspiration' Guess
it'll cool the man's enjngardor'as quick as anything. ., - -
