To maki? a bill of fare with ease.
And one that's always sure to lease,
Start "soup" as beginner.
Next In order comes .lsh
Then some dainty little dish
To take away the taste of fish
And pave the way for dinner.
Sweetbreads vary so in price in
different markets that they may be
called n expen
sive luxury one
place and an ordi
nary priced i
in others. 3weet
breads get their j
name from a fan- \
cied resemblance ;
to the rising '.ough 1
of bread. When choosing sweetbreads
see that they are fresh and large.
Their color should be clear, and If
they are not to be used immediately !
they should be parboiled.
One of the best liked and perhaps
the commonest ways of serving this
dainty is m a cream sauce in rame
kins or on toast Parboil, then cut
in bits, removing all of the connecting ,
tissue. To blanch, cook in a little j
acidulated water, a tablespoonful of
vinegar to a pint of water is suffi- !
cient Then add them tc a hot,
rich- white sauce, well seasoned, and
Sweetbread Salad.-Cut np a sweet
bread that has been cooked, mix
with an equal quantity of celery cut
in dice, season well, add mayonnaise
and serve on lettuce.
Sweetbread? and Peas-This com
bination seems to be especially happy.,
Parboil two pairs of good sized sweet- j
breads with one sliced onion, a bay
leaf and two or three cloves-saving
the water to be used in making the
sauce. Remove the fiber and pick
the sweetbreads to pieces, mix with
a cupful of fresh mushrooms that
have been cooked tn three tablespoon
fuls of butter for ten m ??utes. Add
a can of peas, drained of their liquor,
a cupful of rich milk, salt, pepper,
and a grating of nutmeg. Thicken
with a tablespoonful each of butter
and flour, add the liquor strained, and
the sweetbread mixture. Serve in
timbale cases or on toast.
Sweetbread Sandwiches.-Cut some
cold boiled sweetbreads in thin
slices, season with salt, pepper
and finely chopped celery in may
onnaise, spread over the sweetbreads,
then on top put a thinly cut slice
of buttered bread.

chestnuts in the center of a hot plat

?CLIPSES OF EARLY DATE
Astronomers Hold Differing Opinions
as to When They Were Officially
Observed in China.
Messrs. Hiyarama and Ogura have
published in the proceedings of the
Tokio Mathematico-Physical society
the results of their attempts to fix the
dates of some early eclipses recorded
in Chinese literature. The earliest is
mentioned in one of the books of the
Shu Ching, where it is recorded that
in the reign of Chung K'ang, the
fourth emperor of the Hsia dynasty,
there occurred an eclipse of the sun
which had not been predicted by the
astronomers, who were alleged to have
been drunk and to have neglected
their duties. Hence the customary
rites for de ivering the sun, which
should have been arranged by the as
tronomers, were In the emergency
performed by other officials without
proper preparation. The emperor ac
cordingly odered the army to punish
the astronomers. A later document
makes it possible to fix the date of
this event as October 13, 2127 B. C.
(Julian calendar)-the earliest record
ed eclipse in the world. Calculation
shows that there actually was a solar
eclipse on that date, but probably not
in China, though the elements of,the
motions of the sun and moon are not
accurate enough to indicate certainly
the path of so remote an eclipse. The
authors are inclined to think that the
information fixing the date of the
eclipse is due to Chinese astronomers
of a later age, who calculated that an
eclipse occurred on that date and er
roneously supposed that it was visible
SHOWING HOW TO DO THINGS
Much That Could Be Accomplished by
Woman County Agent in a
The United States department of
Agriculture has started a movement
to place a woman county agent in
every community in this country. And
why shouldn't it? Mother needs help
just as well as father.
The woman county agent is to do
for women, girls and the home what
the farm demonstration agent does
for the men and the boys on the farm. ?
The aim in each case is to get done
some definite worth-while things, ?
which teach a lesson and inspire to
greater achievements. In the girls'
canning-club work the girls are in
structed how to grow tomatoes and
other vegetables on one-tenth of an
acre, and how to can, preserve, pickle, ?
and in other ways utilize the products. ?
Winter garden clubs and poultry clubs
have naturally followed the work in
canning and summer gardening. Bread
making and many other forms of home
improvement work have also been '
taken up. This work trains girls to !
become efficient home makers, develop
the resources of the farm, to Improve
the quality of the country life and
to become economically independent.
Prom the girls' garden to the moth
ers' kitchen and the home is a short
and easy step. The work with girls
has opened the way for systematic
home-economics work in the rural
home, and has developed the logical
organization and method for doing
this work. I
Cost of Radium Greatly Reduced.
As a result of work done by the
bureau of mines of the United States
department of the interior, in connec
tion with the National Radium insti
tute, radium bromide has been pro
duced at a cost of only $36,050 per
gram, a most remarkable result
when lt is remembered that only re
cently the salt has been selling for j
$120,000 and upward per gram. ?
Still, we have no definite information
what it costs to produce this high? j
priced salt. There is, however, little
possibility that the prices will be
greatly reduced, as aJl of the known
deposits of the carnotite ores, from
which radium is at present obtained, j
are held very closely by their own- '
ers; and moreover, these deposits can
not last many years at the present rate
of working. These facts, together
with a rapidl}Mncreasing demand, will
undoubtedly increase the price of ra
dium even above the above big fig
ures, notwithstanding the improve
ments in the methods of extracting.
Case of Bible Reading.
The Rev. W. Y. Fullerton of the
Baptist Missionary society told a good
story at the anniversary meeting of
the International Bible Reading asso-1
ciation. As shewing that some peo
ple needed guidance in the selection
of their Bible reading, Mr. Fullerton, !
says the Westminster Gazette, re- !
called an incident reminiscent of his"
mission days, when a man came to his 1
meeting and told of his efforts to
comfort his wife as she lay upon the
sick bed. "I read the Bible to her |
every night," he said. "What did you
read?" inquired the missioner. "Well,"
said the man, "I began at the first
chapter of the Book of Proverbs, and :
when I had finished the book she j

GOOD APARTMENTS, LOW RENT
Experiment Undertaken at De?
Moines, la., Asserted to Be a
A practical demonstration to prove
that individual apartments with mod
ern plumbing, sanitary conveniences,
and absolute privacy for each family,
can be built to rent for from $8 to
$12.50 per month and yet yield a rea
sonable profit to the builder, was made
a short time ago at Des Moines, la
The Octavia Hill association, which
has already won renown in solving
housing problems, has worked out the
plan to the smallest detail and is
building the model houses. Forty-five
families were provided for :ln the first
block now under construction.
The houses, which are of red brick,
are simply finished with sufficient
trimming to keep them from being se
verely plain. One important feature
of the property is the provision for
the children. About 8,000 square feet
of ground in the center of the block
will be used for a playground. The
rent collectors are trained society
workers and will volunteer to start
the playground activities.
The investment will reach nearly
$60,000, which ls represented by cap
ital stock and a mortgage which pay?
4.4 per cent a year. The investment
will yield a gross Income of 10.9 per
cent per year, after deducting taxes,
insurance, water rents, cost of collec
tion of rents, social work, deprecia
tion, etc., of 5,7 per cent.
The Des Moines venture i? a test
case to prove that the unsanitary and
bad housing conditions which prevail
for the low-salaried workingmen are
criminally unnecessary. It i? voic
ing an unanswerable protest against
the crowded tenement, the dilapidated
and unsanitary house which is virtu
ally the only kind offered to the man
who must pay less than $15 a month
The association now owns or man
ages 353 dwellings, housing 2,500 peo
ple, and has never failed to pay four
per cent a year to its stockholders.
