GOVERNMENT EXPERTS TELL OF
Directions for Preparing a Cleansing
Material That Has Much Virtue
Must Be Applied With Care
For the benefit of those who have
the care of silver, the office of home
economies at Washington has made
a thorough study of the electrolytic
met hud of cleaning and has published
the results .of their work in United
States Department of Agriculture Bui
lei!;! No. -Wt).
Alter discussing several types of
commercial cleaners and giving the re
suits of vtrious analyses, they suggest
the following method as being cheap
"An enamel or agateware dish
should be partly filled with a cleaning
solution of one teaspoonful of either
washing or bakiug soda and one tea
spoonful of common table salt to each
quart of water and placed directly
on the stove to boil. A sheet of alumi
num or clean zinc should then be
dropped into the dish and tarnished
silver placed ia contact with the metal,
lt is best that the silver be entirely
covered with the cleaning solution and
that the solution remain at the boiling
temperature. As soon as the tarnish
has beeu removed the silver should be
removed, rinsed in clean water, and
wiped with a soft cloth. Zinc may be
used in place of aluminum, but it be
comes corroded and inactive in a much
The electrolytic method cleans plated
or sterling silverware without loss of
metal, giving, however, a satin finish
rather titan a burnished appearance,
and has the additional advantages of
being both clean and labor-saving.

Beat whites of four eggs stiff, one
and one-half cupfuls sugar, one-half
cupful butter, one cupful cream or rich

Delmonico Cream Roll Potatoes.
Ik-re are two Delmonico potato
recipes: Pare potatoes and cut them
into iii ts the size of a pea. Keep them
in enid water until all are ready. For
ea eli scant pint of potatoes make a
pint of white sauce, seasoning with
onion juice or celery salt. Stir the po
ta toe s into the hot sauce, turn into a
well-buttered agate sauce pan and cook
in thc oven until the potatoes are ten
der and the sauce Is absorbed, with
Ute exception of just enough to hold
the bits of potatoes together. Fold one
part over ?lie otlier as an omelet and
turn onto a bot dish. The potatoes
should not brown above or below. If
necessary, sot them on the grate and
cover the pan.
We always use a little fried parsley
to ornament our meat dishes with.
This is how it is done: Wait until a
bluish smoke is rising from the fat,
then r?n ove it to the side of the fire.
When it has cooled slightly throw In
the parsley, and leave it until the fat
has almost stopped spluttering. Then
lift it out at once and drain it well,
when it should be a lovely green color.
Be careful not to overfry it, or it will
turn au ugly brownish color.-Boston
Sance-One and one-half cupfuls of
sugar, one and one-half cupfuls water,
butter size of egg, juice and rind of one
Batter-One cupful sugar, one cupful
water, butter size of egg, one teaspoon
ful ita kins powder, flour enough to
make batter like cake.
Mix the sauce in granite pan and let
stand till dissolved, then pour batter
over sauce and bake In a medium oven.
Good either hot or cold.
Steamed Suet Pudding.
One cupful chopped suet, one-half
teaspoonful salt, one teaspoonful soda,
two teaspoonfuls cream of tartar, one
cupful molasses, one and one-half cup
fuls milk, two and one-half cupfuls
flour, one cupful chopped raisins, one
cupful currants, a little cut up citron,
one teaspoonful of lemon extract, one
teaspoonful nutmeg. Steam four hours.

Tom Crawford jingled the change

The whole thing amounted to th

Now this was Tommy's cue to sa:
"Of course you will, if you give n

And with his mind firmly fixed upc

Brinton from Albany, whom he ha
wired to meet him, he boarded th
8:30 express and forgot all abot
But when he reached the hotel nes
morning he found a telegram froi
Brinton saying that he couldn't b

This was a damper, because he ha

He tried to think of what he an

The people were all In two or fours
He was the only one alone and h<
didn't know a soul.
But Tommy was game. He had com?,
to New York for a time, so a time h(

The next day was a new round of soli

Then one day as he was walking
along Fifth avenue two women came
out of a shop and were climbing Into s
limousine when one of them cried,

And Tommy turned to see Martha
beaming on him delightedly and hold
ing out her hnnd.
"Cousin Mary, I want you to meet
Tommy, Mr. Crawford. Come and get
In and drive home with us, won't you?
I'm dying for a talk. Tve been having
such a glorious time i'm crazy to tell
someone all about lt"
Tommy's lonely heart gave a few
longing thumps. How he wanted to
accept But he remembered his excuse
of urgent business. "No, thank you,*'
he drew out his watch. "It's getting
late and I have an appointment. But
I'll ring you up and maybe you can
spare me a minute again."
Cousin Mary mentioned a night for
dinner, and after considerable reflec

certainly do his be3t to arrange to go.
It was almost a week ahead.
And In the meantime lt seemed that
Tommy was due to collide with Martha
and her friends everywhere he went,
and Tommy's heart had many a jeal

men who paid her attention.
Then came the night of the dinner.
Tommy found the affair a state cere

"You'll never gu?s? how lonely Tve

TREAT TURKEY FOR CHOLERA
Isolate Affected Birds In House Re
mote From Other Poultry Build
The word Is used to cover a num
ber of Intestinal disorders, but chol
era is a contagious germ, disease and
Is practically incurable. Place al1
birds which show any symptoms of
the diser.se in a house remote from
other poultry buildings and one which
can be easily and thoroughly disin
fected. Give the birds a few drops of
creolin or sulpho-napthol in their
drinking water, just enough to turn it
faintly milky. Give the birds a one
thousandth of a grain tablet of cor
rosive sublimate every three hours.
Feed sparingly on soft easily digested
food. All badly affected birds should
be killed by a blow on the head with
out drawing blood and then burned.
Rake up and burn all litter used in
the house and runs occupied by in
fected birds. Spray the runs and all
parts of the building with a creolin or
sulpho-napthol solution, one table
spoonful to two gallons of water. The
runs should also be plowed frequently.
PICK FEATHERS FROM GEESE
Best Time Is When Operation Does
Not Draw Blood-Dry Feathers
The best time to pick geese is when
picking the feathers will not draw the
blood ; this is usually just before molt
Some make a practice of picking the
geese twice a year, but this ls not a
good practice, as it depleces the vitality
of tlie geese, and unfits them for good
service as breeders.
After the feathers have been picked,
they should be spread out to dry, after
which they are ready for the market
FEEDING MILK TO CHICKENS
According to Nebraska Experiment
Station Practice Will Double
Production of Eggs.
The use of milk in feeding chickens
will double egg production, according
to the poultry section of the Nebraska
experiment station at Lincoln. "The
hen never lays an egg until all the In
gredients necessary for the complete
development of a chick are present,"
the station announced.
"Since the egg contains protein as
well as carbohydrates, any amount of
carbohydrates fed in the form of grain
will not offset the necessity of protein.
Milk given to the birds, either as a
drink, or in the form of wet mash, will
double egg yields. Commercial meat
scrap is of equal value, and may be
substituted when milk cannot be ob
OYSTER SHELL IS VALUABLE
lt ls Not Fed to Poultry for Purpose of
Supplying Grit, but as Material
for Egg Shell.
Oyster shell is fed to chickens for
the production of egg shells and not
for grit as some persons think, ac
cording to R. M. Sherwood, acting head
of the department of poultry hus
bandry in the Kansas State Agricul
Approximately 90 per cent of tho
oyster shell fed laying hens is con
verted into egg shell, which has a
chemical composition almost identical
with that of the original shell. Clam
shells and lime, although of practically
thc same composition, are not as ap
petizing to the chickens and so are not
as valuable us the oyster shells.

Showing Well-Developed Breast

of large, vigorous type, showing well
developed breast, strong bone, large

should be held for breeding purposes.
