BEANS, SPANISH STYLE.
To bake beans in Spanish style,
soak two cupfuls of the white beans
over night and in the morning parboil
them with a pinch of soda and drain.
Meanwhile, fry an onion cut in slices
with a piece ot bacon. Add these to
the beans with a cupful of canned
tomatoes, two shredded chili peppers,
salt and enough hot water to cover
thoroughly. Bake : lowly, covered,
for six hours at least. The fireless
cooker is ideal for baked beans of
any kind.-New York Sun.

the canal worthless, despite the or
