VACATIONS FOR DAIRY COWS
|6ix Weeks Rest ls None Too Long for
j Animal to Rest Between Lac
It ls fairly well understood that the
dairy cow should be given a vacation
or a rest between lactation periods.
The longer the rest up to a certain
point the better it is for the cow.
Ten and one-half months continuous
milking out of every twelve is all that
can be reasonably expected. It is
claimed that it is as hard on a cow

The oyster plant is now In season
and makes a most delicious soup. Cut
the salsify into thin
slices after scraping
well. Cover with a quart
of water, to 12 good
sized roots. Cook gently
for an hour until the
plant is tender; add a
quart of milk, two table
spoonfuls of butter and
salt and pepper. Serve
with oyster crackers.
The roots are so discoloring to the
hands that the fingers should be well
wrapped while preparing. Rubber
gloves are best, but a cloth wrapped
around the fingers exposed will do
Clear Tomato Soup.-Add a pint of
water to a quart of stewed toma
toes. Add a slice of onion, a half a
bay leaf, a dash of celery salt and a
few celery tops, a teaspoonful of salt,
a chopped green pepper. Cook to

sieve, add two tablespoonfuls each of
flour and butter rubbed together, or
cornstarch will make a clearer soup.
Cook until the starch ls well cooked.
Serve with squares of toasted bread.
Cream of Potato Soup.-This is a
soup that should be better known, is
an economical and wholly satisfying
one. Pare three medium-sized pota
toes; cover them with boiling water;
boil five minutes, drain and throw
away the water. Cover with a pint of
boiling water; add a slice of onion, a
bit of celery and a bay leaf. Cover
and cook slowly until the potatoes are

Turnip Soup.-Put a tablespoonful

slices of carrot Into a saucepan and
toss over the heat until the onion is
yellow, then add four good-sized tur

tablespoonfuls of blended butter and

that the contents will be a surprise.
Children from four to forty, and even
older, enjoy an element of mystery
about things and a surprise is a most
delightful way of entertaining little
people. A tiny doll dressed in fluffy
robes may be hidden in a rosy apple
as a favor or as a gift.
A banana with a half dozen little
"nigger" dolls or chocolate babies em

of the banana to make the surface

There is no need that the fruit itself
