CHAFING DISH DISHES.
Few people realize the convenience
and comfort one may get from the
cse of a chafing dish. Especially the
woman without a maid.
For a late supper, or Sunday night
lunch, there is nothing more inviting
than a chafing dish and well stocked
If one cares to have the service
especially dainty, and who does not,
have the first preparations made long
before the meal. Measure the butter
and make it into attractive balls, a
tablespoonful to a ball. Have the oth
er ingredients in pretty dishes well
arranged on the tray, to be easily
found. Cut the meat or shed the fish,
so that the mere putting together will
be an entertainment for those who
look on. Always keep certain things,
as seasonings, in the same place.
When purchasing a chafing dish, see
that the hot water pan, too, has
handles, as well as the blazer, by
which it may be lifted. This dish may
be used on the table in many ' rays
when the chafing dish is not in use.
To Poach Eggs.-Break each egg
separately in a saucer, and drop into
the blazer of hot water; cover until
the eggs are firm, remove from the
pan to circular pieces of toast that
bave been prepared in the kitchen,
and serve at once, after seasoning
with salt, pepper and bits of butter.
Hamburg steaks, well seasoned and
shaped and cooked until brown, are
delicious served from the chafing
Vienna Steaks.-Take a fourth of
a pound each of lean beef and veal
chopped. Season well with three
fourths of a teaspoonful of salt, pap
rika and nutmeg, a few drops of
onion juic'? and a teaspoonful of lem
on juice. Add an egg well beaten;
shape into small steaks, and let stand
several hours. Cook in a hot blazer
that has boen well buttered. Cook
eight to ten minutes. Cream two ta
blespoonfuls of butter, a dash of salt
and paprika and spread on the

Will rise In majesty to meet thine own.

Then will pure light around thy path be
And thou wilt never more be sad and
Use a few cold cooked vegetables
for cutlets, such as turnip, peas and
carrots and a few beans. Make a
white sauce, by adding three table
spoonfuls of flour to two of butter, add
a pint of milk and cook until thick,
then add the vegetables, season well
and spread an inch thick on a plate to
cool. When cold, form table
spoonfuls of the mixture into cutlets,
dip in egg and crumbs and drop care
fully into hot fat. Drain on paper
and serve with a reheated meat
Carrots cut in 3hreds served (when
tender, by boiling) with butter and
Dainty Croquettes.-Mix ? cup of
boiled calves' liver chopped with half
a cup of finely minced bacon cooked
brown, salt and pepper to taBte. Form
into balls the size of large marbles,
dip in beaten egg, roll in crumbs and
fry brown in smoking hot fat.
Prune Pudding.-Place two layers
of pitted prunes, soaked for a few
hours in cold water, in a greased ba
king dish, and pour over the follow
ing batter: Mix a cup of molasses,
half a cup of butter, the grated rind
of a lemon, half a cup of sour milk,
into which stir one teaspoonful of
soda, three cups of flour; mix to a
smooth batter and bake until the bat
ter is cooked through to the center.
Holland Salad.-Mix half a pound of
bologna sausage cut very thin, with a
pint of cold boiled potatoes also sliced
thin, one medium-sized onion shaved,
six sardines freed from skin and bones,
then cut in small pieces, two hard
cooked eggs sliced. Pour over oil
.three parts, vinegar one part, a tea
spoonful of horse radish and tomato
catsup. Serve on lettuce.
Just the Thing.
Husband-By jove, I want some
thing exciting to read; something real
ly blood curdling.
Helpful Wife-Here is my dress
maker's bill, dearest!-Puck.
Hub (after five minutes of lt)-Oh,
only a fool would argue with a woman.

Five Cents to Sit Down.
A genius of San Jose, Cal., has pat
ented a new form of bench for use
in public parks, etc This bench is
made to accommodate two persons
snugly, but if a pair of lovers want to
use it they must first drop a nickel in
the slot. This will release the bench
and allow it to be tipped forward into
a position so it can be sat in. After
they have sat as long as they care
to-which in some cases will presum
ably be quite a while-they will prob
ably get up, and then the bench will
automatically drop back an^ lock
itself so as to be ready for the next
susceptible couple. The inventor pro
poses to have his benches In all pub.
lie places. He believes the people will
be glad to pay a nickel in order to
be sure of a seat and that the income
will help the city keep up the parks,
etc, as well as enrich himself.--The
Church That Seats Only Ten.
Mexico, for a country that is so
poor, boasts some wonderfully big and
fine churches, and lt also has what
is claimed to be the smallest church
in the world.
It is situated at Penon, near the
city of Mexico, and is a rude affair,
yet it serves all purposes as the local
population is small. It has a "seating
capacity" of about ten, though there
are in fact no seats. The place is a
favorite one for wedding ceremonies,
though the altar is so small that only
the couple to be married can stand
in front of it
The average person has to stoop in
entering the door-but that encour
ages humility and ls a good thing. The
little edifice ls crowned with two mini
ature towers with a bell in each, and
these bells are rung as ceremoniously
as those of the famous cathedral in
the capital city.-From the Pathfinder
The other Sunday evening, when
church service was over, a young
minister started on his journey home,
accompanied by two young ladies ol
the choir, when they began a con
versation about hymns.
"What ls your favorite hymn?" ask

" 'Draw me nearer,' " she replied,
not thinking of the double meaning.

Making Leaf Pictures.
The ;. cossary outfit consists simply
of a small printing frame such as
photographers use and a quantity ol
commei< ?al blue print paper. The
leaves or ferns which are to be the
subjects ol the lesson are pressed in
a book for a few days after gathering;
when thoroughly dry each specimen is
placed in the printing frame, covered
with a piece of blue print paper, yel
low side down, and the back of the
frame latched In place. The whole
is then exposed to strong sunlight un

deeply bronzed; the print is then re

LOAFING A FINE ART
ACCOMPLISHMENT HARD TO ONE
NOT BORN TO IT.
Everyone Should Set Apart Some
Time for Absolute Relaxation-ls
Woman's Secret of Peren
Most of us need A spell of loafing
now and then, but few of us know
how to loaf. Indeed I don't think
it would be at all a bad idea to hold
classes in loafing all over this hus
tling country of ours, says a writer in
the Rehoboth Sunday Herald- It
comes so hard to any one who isn't
born a loafer-and the born loafer
doesn't count He exaggerates what
Bhould be a recreation, and occasion
al indulgence, bato a habit, thereby
spoiling both life and loaf, and inci
dentally throwing an excellent thing
into bad repute.
No one who wouldn't rather work
than loaf is in actual need of loafing,
but there are really few of UB who
don't prefer working at something,
useful or useless, to doing nothing.
And he or she who loves work most
requires to learn loafing.
You can't loaf properly if you are
worrying over negected work or an
ticipated work to come. Yon must be
gin to loaf in your mind firBt of ail,
letting it work from inside out until
you are loafing all over. Just sitting
around and not working isn't loafing.
I have seen a woman waiting in the
reception room of an office till her
turn came to go In to the hallowed
precincts beyond, sitting there tense
with work, thrashing things over,
quivering with impatience, wearing
herself out to no purpose at alL Now,
if she had studied the art of loafing,
she would have had a fine, refreshing
half hour and enjoyed herself thor
When you loaf you must be filled
with a sense of utter peace, a com
plete escape from the least notion of
labor of any sort, a deep content in
the large leisure of the hour. No
faintest desire to "make time pass"
must be allowed an entrance. "Loaf
and invite your soul." goes the say
ing, but it is rather your soul that in
vites you. It takes you into the re
gions of eternity, where time is not,
and gives you splendid idle dreams
and surrounds you with vast spaces.
What good is there in that? Hard
ly one American woman gets enough
of it. We may be idle, many of us,
but we don't know how to loaf. Yet
loafing of the right sort creates a calm
of the spirit, a composure of the body,
eminently good for us. Into our
crowded, nervous lives lt breathes
sweetly, as might the piping of a
shepherd from vanished Arcady. A
spell of loafing will take the knots
and snarls out of your nervous .Sep
tem as nothing else can. It will soothe
your irritability and restore your equi
A woman who cultivates the art o?,
loafing as one of her possessions will
be mistress of the secret of peren
nial youth. Even when she 1B work
ing her hardest the soothing influence
of her just loafing indulgence will ex
tend its balm over her, keeping off
the fidgets, giving her a sense ot
breadth and ease.
You can loaf but five minutes or
five months, according to circum
stances and necessity. It isn't a ques
tion of time, but a state of being. But
acquire the pow-er to do It when yo?
need it, and life will be a brighter
thing to you.
Turtle's Long. Sleep.
The cold-blooded creatures hlber
nate. Snakes knot themselves up un
der a log or rock; toads, wood frogs
and tortoises push down In the soft
earth; mud turtles and water frogs
bury themselves in the bottom ol
shallow streams and ponds. They all
sleep until hunger wakes them, and
the first thing they do in the spring
is to hunt for a good meal.
If you want to see something hiber
nate lt is easy to keep a box x>rtoise
or a water turtle all winter in a box
of earth and moss with a pan of water
at one Bide.
Before they go to sleep dont forget
to feed them every two or three days
bits of raw meat or earthworms. They
do not care to eat every day and ara
able to go a long time without food.
A box tortoise which a boy hpg had
in the house for two yeairs went to
sleep the first winter just as though
he were out in the cold, but the sec
ond winter he only took short naps
and had become so tame he would eat
out of the hand.-From the Church
He Was From the Wooly West
He was a tall, lanky individual, with
his straight-brimmed felt hat pulled
well down over his eyes. He leaned
against the counter of a confectionery
shop, and when a clerk approached
him he ordered "angel food." "We
have nothing like that here," the girl
told him. "Well, then," he said, "let
me have a chocolate walnut float"
The clerk said she guessed it was a
"sundae" he wanted, and the tan man,
remembering, said he believed that
was what they were called. "I would
rather have 'angel food,' though," he
added. The girl behind the counter
grinned. "Where do you come from?"
she asked, pleasantly. "From the
wooly west," was the startling reply.
