Raisins added to any fruit salad en
hance its attractiveness, as well as
Its flavor and food value.
Raisin bread is a most ideal food for
young and old. If children were given
raisins to eat in place of cake or
candy their tastes for sweets would
be satisfied at no expense to the diges

raisins until soft and plump, then chop
fine, add three tablespoonfuls of pow

has been added a bit of salt and a
quarter of a teaspoon of cream of tar

A diamond in the rough.
Is a diamond sure enough,
For before it ever sparkles
It is made of diamond stuff.
Of course some one must find it.
Or it never will bc found,
And then some ont- must grind it.
Or it never will be ground.
But when it's found, and when lt's
And when lt's burnished bright.
That diamond's everlastingly
Just flashing out its light.

WAYS OF USING BUTTERMILK.
Buttermilk is not half appreciated
as a food in itself. Nice, sweet, fresh
buttermilk taken by the
glass is a meal in itself.
A diet of buttermilk has
saved many sufferers
from dyspepsia and kin
dred ills. It is possible
to live upon buttermilk
exclusively for weeks at
a time and gain in
weight and health.
Buttermilk may take the place ol
butter and sour milk in many dishes.
This means good country buttermilk,
not that which has been separated
from every globule of fat.
Graham Muffins.-Mix and beat well
two cupfuls of buttermilk, one tea
spoonful of soda, half a teaspoonful
of salt, two tablespoonfuls of mo
lasses, three cupfuls of graham flour
or a cup and a half each of wheat
and graham. Bake in a moderate
Caraway Cookies.-Mix one cup
ful of sour cream, half a cupful of
buttermilk, two eggs, half a teaspoon
ful of salt, one teaspoonful of soda,
flour to roll and caraway seeds to
taste. Currants or nuts may be sub
stituted in place of the seeds if so de
Griddle Cakes.-Beat tpgether two
cupfuls of buttermilk, half a teaspoon
ful of salt, one teaspoonful of soda,
and flour to make a thin batter. Bake
on a hot griddle. Serve with maple
sirup. A mixture of buckwheat and
flour makes a good cake for a variety.
if lt Shrinks.
Before you hem the bottom of a
dress that is likely to shrink, run a
nice tuck in the hem on the wrong
side, with a long stitch nearly at the
top of the hem, then run hem in usual
way, but be sure not to take stitches
of tuck with the hemming, then if it
shrinks you can easily rip the long
stitches in the tuck and let down
Y> i .hout undoing the hem.
, St George and the Dragon.
It is rather surprising to find St
George and his dragon turning up
on thai stretch of the Danube which
parts Hungary from Servia, remarks
the London Chronicle. But the cav
ern of Golubacz on the Hungarian
side, opposite to the castle of the
same name in Servia, can support by
circumstantial evidence its claim to
have been the scene of the encounter.
It is true that the "Golden Legend"
localizes the dragon in a "pond like
a sea" in Libya. But the champions
of Golubacz relate that, having slain
the dragon, St. George left the carcass
in the cavern, where it has ever since
bred innumerable flies. And, as Mr.
Walter Jerrold notes, there is no doubt
about the flies. In the early summer
swarms of them cover spaces of six or
seven miles, and they have often
proved fatal to horses.
Making a Skylight Drip-Proof.
A Pennsylvania wire glass company
has evolved a new type of glass that
solves a problem of much importance
to many manufacturing plants-that
of eliminating the drip from the un
derside of skylights. In many of the
arts, in silk and cotton mills, paper
factories or chocolate works, the fall
ing of a single drop causes much dam
age. The new glass has an under
surface with eight webs or channels
to the inch, the webs being of such
form as to give the greatest degree of
capillary attraction. The result is
that even when pitched as low as ten
degrees above the horizontal, all con
densation is held and carried down
to the gutter at the foot of each
Low Countries in Fiction.
Both Belgium and Holland, in the
guise of the Low Countries, as they
used to be called, figure very promi
nently in English fiction. Thackeray,
in particular, placed very many scenes
there, as every reader of "Esmond"
and "Vanity Fair" will recall. Namur
deserves a very special place in lite
rary affections from its associations
with "Tristram Shandy." It was the
fortifications of this city that "My
Uncle Toby," assisted by "Corporal
Trim," spent hk time in constructing
in miniature replica. It was also "My
Uncle Toby," it is interesting to recall,
who was responsible for that classic
phrase, "Our troops swore horribly in
Good Guess, Anyway.
A congressman said m the lobby
of a Washington hotel that you can't
lose the youngsters when it comes to
making :. good ?uess, even if they
don't hit the mark. In proof of the
statement, he told this story. "Some
time ago the teacher in a public
school was giving a talk on classic
mythology. Little Willie was not very
attentive, and when it came to the
questioning part of the game, he was
lost in the wilderness. 'Willie,' said
the teacher, closing the book arjd
looking impressi ely at the youngster,
'^an you tell me who Cyclops was?'
".'es. ma'am.' was the prompt answer
of Willie. 'He was the feller what
wrote the cyclopedia.' "

Discussing another atrocity charge,
Representative P. Lyons Dumlingsaid
in Oswego: "Of course, the guilty
will get out of it with a glib excuse.
These people, with their glib excuses,

You and Your Work.
Is work a burden? Do you rebel at
everything and are you withholding
your best efforts? Get another place!
It is time for you to give your notice
and attach yourself to another bread
line. Never let work overpower you
with its demands on energy. The man
or woman who dies in the traces, with
out the joy of work, may have a big
funeral, but sermons and shaking
heads of the onlookers are of little
worth to the personality that has gone
too soon. Make your work contribute
to the joy of living. Make it help you
to grow. Look for something in the
aear future that will do this.

BEST OF SANDWICHES
SOME NEW IDEAS EVOLVED BY
Improvements In the Popular Tlt-BIt
Known as the "Club" Have Benn
Made-Oysters Used in Place
Tea rooms in the big city shopping
districts are serving some new vari
eties of the always popular club sand
wich. While the principal ingredi
ents remain the same each style of
club sandwich differs from its fellows
in some detail which makes it dis
What is known as a French club
sandwich is served with a toasted
English muran substituted for the
usual slices of toasted bread. It is
set down before one garnished with a
few sprays of parsley pressed deep
into the yielding surface of the ?alf
muffin which tops the substantial fill
ing of chicken, bacon, mayonnaise, let
tuce and sliced tomato. Watercress
is used in similar fashion, the spray
of green in either case being embedded
in the toasted muffin so firmly that it
seems to be a little flower holder.
Two halves of crumpet are used for a
similar sandwich and Ailed with the
same combination, making a sand
wich still more hearty.
Where toasted bread is used vari
ety is given to the club sandwich by
reason of some other meat or fish be
ing substituted for the usual founda
tion layer of breast of chicken. Thin
ly sliced duck is delicious with the
bacon and other ingredients, and tur
key is also another good substitute.
Strips of rare beef, either cold or
freshly cut from a hot roast and
moistened with horseradish may also
be used, and strips of rare steak are
An oyster club sandwich has for
its distinctive feature two or three
large fried oysters. These are laid
on the under slice of toast, sprinkled
with lemon juice and then topped with
two strips of bacon, two lettuce
leaves, a spoonful of mayonnaise and
then the second slice of toast.
For those who do not care for fried
oysters the oyster club sandwich
comes in still a different form, the
oysters being poached in their own
liquor until the gills curl, when they
are drained of moisture and used for
the foundation of che sandwich. If
preferred oyster club sandwiches may
be served with Russian dressing in
stead of mayonnaise, as the addition
of the tomato Savor in the chili sauce
is particularly agreeable with oysters,
either fried or poached.
Sardine club sandwich is made
of large boned sardines sprinkled w'rtfT
lemon juice and arranged as usual
and finely cut lobster, either hot or
cold, offers still another variety.
The egg club sandwich is usually
served with a basis of an egg fried on
both sides, and seasoned well with
salt, pepper and paprika before the
other materials for the sandwich are
added. Hard-boiled eggs, sliced or
chopped, result in a sandwich less
rich. In both cases the eggs should
be served hot.
In most households greater economy
of time and energy can be practiced
by cooking larger amounts of food at
one time, and this means a saving in
the fuel bills as welL

add the fruit juice and gelatin, stir
until well blended, then pile high in
a deep dish or mold if preferred.
Steamed Dried Beef.
Here ls an unusual recipe, but a very
good one. Prepare a spiced vinegar as
for fruit pickles, only less highly sea
soned. Cut very, very thin slices of
dried beef in narrow strips, diamond
or any fancy shape, and cut with scis
sors. Steam the beef in the vinegar
for one hour. Serve hot with toasted

delicate fabrics use cold water, am
