Approach of Warm Weathei
Leads Medical Men to
Beware of "soft" drinks contain
ing dangerous chemical tlavoriug
and habit forming drugs, ip the
warning of the Journal of the
American Medical Association.
With the approach of warm weath
er the thoughts of most persons
turn to summer beverages, but com
paratively few know anything of
the ingredients of the drink. Un
scrupulous dealers have in the past
used all sorts of concoctions, which
have been sold indiscriminately to
children. The warning to beware
of the danger is timely.
"In addition to the drinks con
taining dangerous chemical flavor
ing and coloring substances," says
the Journal, "there are other 'tem
perance' drinks equally dangerous,
especially for the children and
young persons who indulge in them
so freely. Many of the rather mis
named 'tonic' drinks that are so
widely advertised have been shown
by the United States Government
analysis to contain considerable pro
portions of Coffeine.
' It is easy to understand that af
ter taking these caffeine-containing
I cold drinks the feeling of fatigae
may drop from one. Caffeine is
not, however, a desirable stimulant
to serve indiscriminately to grow
iag children or young adults, es
pecially those city dwellers whose
nervous systems certainly need no
artificial stimulation. Besides, caff
eine seems to have a definite ten
dency to the formation of a habit.
Not a little of the restlessness of
children during the summer is to be
attributed to the taking of caffeine
in considerable quantities in the
form of soda fountain drinks.
"The parents sometimes discover
that a distinct craving for the par
ticular drink has been created, and
that the child pleads for money to
satisfy that craving. After read
ing the advertisements of the mar
velous tonic and stimulating virtues
and fatigue-dissipating qualities of
these preparations, the parents itel
sure that there cannot be any harm
in such well recommended bever
ages, especially since they are sold
in a favorite drug store. Unfortu
nately this confidence is not justi
fied; it is necessary to draw a sharp
line between the bottled tonics and
i drinks containing caffeine and the
relatively harmless carbonated soda
water of the soda fountain, when
served in plain or with wholesome
Recognizing the danger from
"soft" drinks, tue New York city
and Montana boards of health have
issued bulletins warning the public
of certain beverages that have been
found to be either adulterated or
The Montana bulletin contains an
article giving a long list of bottled,
carbonated beverages which were
found either adulterated or mis
branded when examined in the State
laboratory. Most of them contain
saccharin, samples of "ginger ale"
contained capsicum, but no ginger,
and the fruit beverages all contain
ed artificial colors and flavors
which were not declared on tb?
It is also stated that since sac
charin does not aid foaming as does
sugar, the manufacturers are in the
habit of usina: extract of soapbark
which produces a good foam. Not
only is this substance deceptive, but
also the soapbark contains a toxic
principle, sapotoxin, which is mark
The bulletin of the New York
city department of health sets forth
a regulation prohibiting the use of
soapbark in beverages and in fill

12 Reasons Why You Should
Sow Peas-And Then More
1. They are fairly good human
2. They are one of our most nu*
tritious feeds for stock.
3. The peas alone are worth
from $5 to $20 per acre.
4. Cowpea hay is easily worth
$20 per ton. The yield vanes from
one to three tons per acre.
5. If left on the land and turn
ed under, the vines are worth from
$5 to $15 per acre as fertilizer.
(j. The roots and stubble are
worth from $2 to $4 per acre as
7. The vines, roots and stubble
furnish humus (vegetable matter),
something nearly all soils are de
8. This humus helps to make
the land cultivte easily; absorbs aud
holds moisture that will aid a crop
to continue its growth during a
drought, and furnish the conditions
necessary for the existence of bene
ficial bacteria that enable plants to
get nitrogen from the air.
9. The shade of peavines helps
in the formation of valuable ni
trates in the soil.
10. Peavine roots are good sub
soilers. They go to considerable
depths, opening up the earth so air
and water can make a deep soil.
11. Cowpeas fit in well in near
ly all systems of rotations of crops.
They are well adapted to growing
among corn and after small grain
harvested in the spring.
1-. Peas get some of their nit
rogen from the air, free of co*t to
the farmer. Nitrogen in commer
cial fertilizers costs about 20 cents
per p ?nd.
Nearly everything said about
cowpe;.is also true of soy beans.
The bi- MS excel in hoing a little
more v . diable as stock feed, a little
better adapted to wet soils, stand
droughts a little better and usually
make slightly larger yields of grain
and hay.-C. R. Hudson in Pro

H) BE SERVED TOGETHER
Accompaniments of Solid Dishes That
Add to Their Flavor and Arso
Bolled rice, new potatoes, peas or
asparagus and mint sauce go well with
spring lamb. Boiled lamb or mutton is
improved by -he addition of caper
sauce, and should be accompanied by
boiled rice and stewed turnip. Baked
leg of mutton is served with brown
gravy, rice croquettes and stewed tur
aips or Brussels sprouts.
Irish stew is best eaten with dum
plings and boiled onions. Roast of beef
can be accompanied by browned pota
;oes, string or butter beans, or aspara
gus. BrotlPd beefsteak can be accom
panied by mashed or scalloped pota
loes, cauliflower or asparagus. French
fried potatoes are also a proper ac
companiment of broiled beefsteak
Boiled tongue is served with tomato
sauce and spinach.
Creamed potatoes and peas aire
served with broiled chops; breaded
chops are served with tomato sauce
ind potatoes au gratin.
Cold meats, like hot meats, have
meir proper accompaniments. Sliced
:omatoes with French dressing should
be serv'u* with cold mutton. With cold
lamb lettuce and chopped mint with
French dressing are suitable. Mayon
naise of celery can be served with
veal or cold chicken. Combined with
tomato aspic it can be served with
cold turkey. Cabbage salad with
French dressing goes with cold ham.
and apple sauce and cold slaw are de
licious with cold pork.
Cover your ham with cold water and
simmer gently Just long enough to
loosen the skin so that it can be
pulled off. This will probably be from
:wo to three hours. When skinned, put
in a dripping pan in the oven, pour
over a teacup of vinegar and one of
hot water, in which dissolve a tea
spoon of mustard. Bake slowly, bast
ing with the liquid, for two hours.
Then cover the ham all over to the
depth of one inch with coarse brown
3ugar, press it down firmly, and do
not baste again urftil the sugar has
formed a thick crust, which it will
soon do in a slow oven. Let lt remain
a full hour in the oven after covering
with the sugar, until it becomes a rich
golden brown. When done, drain from
the liquor in the pan and put on dish
to cool. When cool, not edd, press
by turning another flat dish on top
with a weight over it It is fine and
slices nicely because of the pressing.
Into a coffee cup of sour milk put
half a teaspoon of soda and stir till lt
foams. Beat an egg. add to milk, with
little salt, and tablespoon of sugar.
Use either bread or pastry flour, to
make stiff enough to spread, a very
little, when dropped on griddle, in
tablespoons. Add half as much cream
of tartar, as soda, to flour. Have grid
dle hot and well greased and you will
find the fritters light and delicious.
Adding cream of tartar was told to
rae years ago and find they are not
only much lighter, but finely flavored,
with no suspicion of sour milk about
Shad Roe a la Newburg.
Carefully place shad roe in a pan
containing enough boiling water to
cover it. add the juice of one-half
lemon or two teaspoons vinegar; let
the roe simmer in the water for 20
minutes; drain and keep hot; serve
with the following sauce:
Heat one-half cup cream mixed with
one-hflf cup milk, one teaspoon salt,
one-quarter teaspoon cayenne pepper,
and one-half teaspoon nutmeg in a
double boiler for 10 minutes. Add the
well-beaten yolks of two eggs to this
and stir constantly until thick, (about
three minutes) ; lastly add two table
spoons Madeira wine.
Paragon Crumb Pie.
Blend together three cupfuls of
flour, one cupful of sugar, one-quarter
teaspoonful of salt, one-half cupful of
butter, and set aside three-quarter of
a cupful of these crumbs. Mix to
gether one cupful of molasses and one
cupful of hot water In which one tea
spoonful of soda has been dissolved,
and Into this mixture stir the crumbs.
Line two large pie pans wtih good pie
crust and pour In the batter. Sprinkle
the top thickly with the reserve
crumbs and bake twenty minutes In a
Swedish stew will make a savory
change in meat dishes. Put into an
earthen dish two and a half pounds
stew beef cut into small slices, a large
carrot sliced, three cloves, three round
ing tablespoons pearl tapioca, ona
heaping tablespoon bread crumbs, one
tablespoon vinegar, one-eighth of a
grated nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add
a little water, cover tightly and bake
In a moderate oven five hours.
Three eggs, one and one-half cups
light brown sugar, piece of butter size
of walnut and a grating of nutmeg.
Beat the eggs very light; add sugar
and beat until smooth. Then add the
melted butter and nutmeg. When
baking watch very closely till custard
is set and do not allow to become
hard. Remove from fire as soon as
3et. If desired a meringue or whip
cream can be put on top.
Steamed Apples With Oatmeal.
Carefully pare and core three tea
der apples, place each In a buttered
cup, fill centers with grated maple
sugar and steam until quite tender.
Place in hot dish with freBhly-cooked
oatmeal, placing a spoonful In each
cavity. Serve with cream.
