Cheese is credited with containing
tas much nutriment in one pound as is
?contained in two pounds of beef. It
toothers the digestion o? some, but the
?melting or cooking of it does away
'with this trouble, and there are many
who believe that the merits of cheese
.are all on the side of ease of digestion

In the old days when heavy feeding
J and many bottles of port were dinner
tfashlons, the dish cf cheese was of im
?nense importance. It was not a mor
?sel then as it is now to give zest to
'the meal. Huge cheeses were brought
whole to the banquet board and were
-carved and served with a great flour
ish. Big Stilton cheeses were scooped
.out and Ailed with champagne for spe
cial occasions, and many mixtures
were made ci the softer creams with
butter and wine, forming a paste to
spread on crackers.
Toasted cheese is a great English
.delicacy, but for some reason it is not

In the "rabbit." The old London tav
ern on Fleet street? the Cheshire
.cheese, got its name from the excel
lence of its toasted cheese. A handy
way to cook cheese in the manner
called toasted is to chop or grate a
quantity of it-the mild American
cream is best-and then spread it neat
ly on saltine crackers. Place them
side by side on a flat pan and put them
in under the broiler long enough lo

?es most people, but there are varia

.chop them and mix them with butter,
?cream, sait, mustard and a small cup
of grated cheese. This can be poured
.over toast or crackers.
Broiled sardines also mix nicely in a
rabbit. They are placed on the toast,
skinned and boned, and the cheese is
?poured over them.
A Mexican way is to use tomatoes.

Treating a Smoked Wall.
If the ceiling of your wall is smoked,
or even, as in the case of kitchens, the
entire surface is befogged from the ac

?well to go over the surface with lime
water first before applying a coat of
paint. Walls done this way will be re
newed with one coat of paint, when
two would be needed to eradicate the
damage from smoke and grease. The
lime water may be applied hastily with
a whitewash brush, and a five-cent
piece of lime will make enough to
cover the surface of any good-sized

A home worker tells of her quick
method in quilting. She says: "Try
this and you will never go back to
the old way: Prepare a quilt or com

in the frame. Thread a large darner
with the cord you choose to use. Tie
the first knot, but do not cut it. In
about two inches proceed as if to
make another knot, only this time do
the weaver's knot with the needle. Do
this clear to the end of the comforter,
then cut between each space, and
your work is done. This is perfectly
original with me."

When the time comes to grade the

you can, turning over the breaking of

that the grader was made to plow
with, but I never could figure it that
way, writes S. R. Crawley in Farm

the earth over the center of the grade.

sharp slant, and begin on the inside

TREES ALONG COUNTRY ROADS
Not Only Useful as Shade to Stock In
Fields, but Add Greatly to Beauty
At a recent farmers' institute meet
ing the planting of trees along the
country roads was advocated. It is
a plan worthy of consideration every
where. Trees beside country high
ways are not of less value and im
portance than along the streets of a
city. They are not only useful as
shade to the stock in the fields and
to those who travel along the roads,
but they add greatly to the beauty of
the thoroughfares and are a distinct
asset to the farmers by increasing
the attractiveness of their land, say^
an Illinois writer in Farmer's Re
The theory of the speaker was that
the trees should be planted inside of
-he road boundaries and not on the
farm land, and that the planting should
be done as a part of the road Improve
ment at public expense or by local or
ganizations out of a common fund.
The work would have to be done with
system, of course, and provision made
for the care of the trees once they
were planted, but this system could
easily be worked out. Objection
might be raised in some quarters that
shaded roads would not dry out eas
ily after rains and would, therefore,
be muddy at inconvenient times, but
the proper training and trimming of
the trees would remedy this difficulty.
Every one, even the farmer with
out a shade tree on his premises, ad

or an overhanging orchard as an oasis

THE PRINCIPAL CAUSE.
The Umpire is a paper published in
the East penitentiary of Pennsylva
nia, its pages coutaiu frequent testi
mony by the convicts to the influence
of drink in the wrecking of their
lives. Writes one: "Seventy per cent
of crime is attributed to drink. Why
not make an effort to 'burn our
bridges' and cut off the principal
cause of our being here? A petition
signed by 1.400 men and women in
this place would carry more weight
and be ten times as effective as any
petition signed by a similar number
of people on the outside. Liquor is
the cause of 70 per cent of us being
here. It is the cause of 85 per cent
of parole violations. Let us add our
little weight to the temperance cause,
as a selfish precautionary measure, if
for no better motive."
Says another: "Many men are so

A workman walked into a grog

bar the amount of his month's bill.

IN THE MIDST OF BATTLE.
The temperance cause stared out
well-nigh alone, but mighty forces
have joined us in the long march. We
are now in the midst of the Waterloo
battle, and in the providence of God
the temperance army will not have to
fight that out all by itself. For sci
ence has come up with its glittering
contingent, political economy deploys
its legions, the woman queetlon brings
an Amazonian army upon the field,
and the stout ranks of labor stretch
away as far as the eye can reach. As

so now against the Napoleon of the
liquor traffic, no force is adequate ex
