WHEN PREPARING EGGS
JMUCH CARE SHOULD BE GIVEN
TO THEIR COOKING. ^
rpestlblirty I? Affected by Tempera

of Making Omelet
' While lt would seem that anyone
can cook so simple a food as an egg
satisfactorily, no other food ls so af
fected by different cooking methods
?nd particularly by degrees of tem
perature. The albumen, or egg white,
is greatly changed by heat, and the
way the heat is applied. If it ls
gently warmed, coagulation, or hard*
??lng, does not at once take place,
although the substance may be per
fectly cooked. But If plunged at once
Into boiling water or liquid the albu
men becomes tough and far less de
sirable as a food element. It is, there
fore, much better to cook eggs by
some other method than direct boil
Jag; steaming, poaching or "coddling"
Steeps the albumen soft while cook*
Hag, For dishes requiring "hard*
toiled" eggs, lt is best to let them
?Immer for about twenty minutes, so
that the white will be solid, yet ten
der, and the yolk dry and mealy. Fry
ing, or coating the egg directly with
fat, also hardens the albumen and
snakes it less digestible. It is far
tetter to put the eggs in a buttered
dish and "shirr" or bake them in the
oren. The secret of successful dishes
like the omelet, which is made so well
abroad, lies all in the temperature of
the pan, the fat and the quickness
and skill with which lt is handled
before allowed to become tough or
Eggs contain no starchy qualities.
'This teaches us to build up our egg
menus with starches such as potatoes,
glee, macaroni. Eggs also need to be
served with fat, which does not mean
frying in fat, but a sauce or dressing
containing butter or other oiL
An error common to housewives is
ta relegate the use of eggs chiefly to
cakes and puddings, adding these to
aa already heavy meat meal Since
eggs are the equivalent of meat, if
we use them generously in a pudding
ve do not then need meat in our first
course. Similarily, it is unwise die
tetics to serve a heavy, rich cake as
tbs last course of a dinner beginning
with a fatty meat like lamb, which
already has given us muscle and fat

_ Plain Paper Best
A plain paper or one with quiet self
tone pattern is the only kind that
makes a successful background for pic
tares. The soft neutral tone of car
tridge paper is a splendid setting for
ornaments and pictures, while soft
brown is a safe choice of paper for the
average room, as against it almost any
picture, be it oil painting, water color,
portrait etching or photograph, ap
pears to advantage. Gray is also a
good restful color. A happy and popu
lar combination is the gray wall cov

admirable idea for the city apartment
