DANCER ASKS $10,000 FOR EACH TOE!
Miss Daisy James and Her $100,000 Feet.
Pretty Daisy James, the famous-'
New York dancer, can't dance any
more because she lost both of her
feet in a railroad accident recently.
She was in haste to board a train and
ran under the closed gates, where
she was dragged beneath the car
Now she has filed an action in the
supreme court for $100,000 against
the Delaware, Lackawanna & West
ern Railroad company for she
values each of her dainty dancing
Two eggs, 1 gill vinegar, 2 gills
milk, 1 tablespoonful oil or butter, 1
teaspoonful salt, 1 teaspoonful mus
tard, teaspoonful pepper.
Put the oil and dry ingredients into
a bowl and mix well. Add the eggs
and beat for 5 minutes, then add the
vinegar and beat 1 miiiute. Now add
the milk, place the bowl in a pan of
boiling water and cook until the
sauce thickens like thin cream. It
will take about 10 minutes. Stir the
tbes, now lost forever, at $10,000.
Miss James wishes now that she
had taken the advise of her friends
when they told her to have her feet
insured. "But I would gladly part
with all the money in the world if it
were mine just to be able to dance,"
she said shortly after the accident-
Her feet were described as being
"as light as the tips of wings." She
studied dancing for many years and
during that time always took the
very best care of her feet
sauce constantly while cooking. Cool
and bottle what you do not require
for immediate use. This sauce is
good for nearly all kinds of cooked
If butter is substituted for the oil,
add it just before taking the sauce
from the fire.
ALL O. K.
