BUY MUTTON ?N QUANTITIES
?Question of Economy, and Its Disposl
tion ls Not a hard Matter for
the Clever Housekeeper.
Food experts agree that year-old
mutton is more nutritious than young
?lamb. It is much cheaper to buy it in
quantities. A hind quarter will fur
bish chops which can be breaded or
served plain or with tomato sauce.
The leg can be ..roasted or boiled,
.served with mint or caper sauce... The
boshes make a good cream soup of
. Scotch barley broth. The scraps of
cold roast mutton ..uiake an excellent
salad combined with chopped celery,
onions and peppers. Mix wi :h mayon
naise; and serve on a lettuce leaf.
The chopped cold mutton is fine sea
soned; and baked; in mango 'peppers'
frqm'which the seeds have been re
moved, or chop the scraps of roast
mutton, heat in a cream, sauce, and
serveron toast or in pattie- cases^*"*'"0*
The fore quarter of mutton makes
i8tejR'? plain ?or with curry powdery
meat pie3 ard en casserole with: vege*'
'tables; or rice. Roast the shoulder,
istuffed or plain, and:use the loin for
. chops. In ord?r that one may not-get
tired of mutton, do not serve it all, the
itime-Jput alternate with other dishes.
Gook the stews and soups attd^can
them... Keep in a cool place. The
chppsTcan be heated and covered with
; melted lard. A roast can be kept in
. definitely, the same way. This is a
|sp?elally good idea for those at a dis
itance from a meat market.
iC$$ENIENT IN THE KUCHEN
?Ne|fis)nk Dishpan That Is Calculated
y . to Save Time and Labor in
m . .
A*,new sink dishpan has 3ust ar
rived on the market and is creating a
decided sensation among housewiyes
'who jare obliged to admit the dishpan
tfamily to their intimate* acquaintance
The dish part is square like the sink,
and has four short tin legs and a plug
.in the center. The plug is pulled out
to let off the dishwater which drains
into a wire drawer underneath, six by
eight inches in size and an inch deep.
This catches all greasy substances
and waste from the water; then the
drawer may be pulled out and emp
tied into the garbage bucket, which
?saves the clogging of the sink and
?also prevents the handling of the
"usual, waste by the woman who does
the dishwashing. It is a clever con
trivance, and will certainly have a
"niche in the hall of honored time and
labor saving conveniences.
Six good-sized apples, peeled and
?llcedi; ;one cupful molasses, one cup
ful EugwT, a little salt and cinnamon.
Make.!~a dough of one scant -pint ? of
'flour,;.-One teaspoonful soda, one tea
spoonful cream tartar, one-half tea
spoonful salt. Rub one-half tablespoon:,
lui of shortening into flour and mix
with buttermilk or sour milk to make
it right ! to ?oil. Put one-half of the
apples in a deep agate pan or kettle,
season with 'one-half cupful molasses,
one-half cupful sugar, salt and cinna
mon. Divide the dough into two parts
and roll one-half to size to cover ap
ples. Put in another layer of apples
with remainder of molasses, sugar, salt
and cinnamon. Cover with other half
of dough, with slits cut in top. Put in
one cupful of hot water, cover closely
iand cook on top of stove from thirty to
.forty-five minutes, taking care not to
Put two pounds of lamb in a stew
?pan with sufficient water to cook it,
?having previously washed it Let it
stew slowly till the meat comes easily
'from the bones. "When cool, cut it
-into small pieces. Fry a small onion
.in two ounces of butter to a light
brown, add a tablespoonful of curry
powder and half a spoonful of curry
rpaste; mix all together with half a
pint of good gravy or stock, put in the
meat and let it stew gently half an
ihour. Serve boiled rice separately.
Whisk the yolks of five eggs with
tone pint of cream or rich milk and
beat the whites very stiff. Add to the
,yolks and cream four ounces of flour
and one tablespoonful of sugar, one
ounce of raisins and one ounce
.chopped almonds. Then add the beat
ien whites, stir and fry on a griddle
"with two ounces of butter, either whole
;or in three parts. Let it brown. When
?light sift it with sugar and serve with
preserves or hot vanilla or wine sauce.
Care of Oven.
An oven that is constantly In use
requires to be kept scrupulously clean.
It should not only have the shelves
scrubbed out with soda occasionally,
fbut in addition the shelves should be
ipalnted v/Jth quicklime two or three
-times a year. An oven treated in this
way never becomes caked with grease
and there is no unpleasant smell
?when it is being used.
Toast five slices of bread, spread
them with softened butter, then cut
Into dice. Cook one quart of blueber
ries with two-thirds of a cupful of
sugar, add the juice of half a lemon,
pour while hot over the prepared toast,
chill, garnish the top with whipped
cream and serve with plain cream.
. To make mushroom sauce add half
can of quartered mushrooms to one
cup of brown sauce and simmer gen
tly for four or five minutes.
Post Your Farm.
Every year at this time we have
eal i s for a trespass sign to put up
on woods and. fields as a warning
lo hunters or roamers. Such signs
need not be elaborate. The folloxv
ing in large type will answer:
Trespassing on this property for
any purpose is forbidden under pen
alty of the law.---, Owner.
The local printer, ought to do a
fair business in printing and dis
tributing such signs. They'shonM'

The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 55
years must pay $2 commutation tax or
work six days on the public roads. As
this is optional with the individual, no
commutation tax is included in the
property tax. So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
