Home-made sweets for both chil
dren and grown-ups ara the most sat
isfactory, for then one can know ex.
actly the Ingredients that are used In
The foundations for most candles
Is fondant. Take for making It, five
cups of granulated sugar and add two
cupfuls of cold water and set It on the
back of the store until the sugar Is
melted. Add one teaspoonful of cream
of tartar dissolved In n little water.
This does away with the sickly sweet
taste. Put the pan over the front of
the Are, where It will boll. Do not
stir it after It Is hot and do not shako
jthe pan. When It has boiled a few
minutes, try it by dropping a tiny bit
In a cup of cold water. Do this fre
quently, moving the pan where it will
keep hot but not boll, for It changes
eo rapidly from ono degree to another.
When the sugar dropped In cold wa
ter is firm enough to mako a rather
bard ball when rolled between the
Angers, but Is not crisp, pour it into a
shallow pan and leave to cool till It
will wrinkle when the pan Is tipped.
Stir it with a large spoon until it is
quite cool. If It does not harden
enough to use, put it Into the pnn at
the back of the stove again until It Is
melted, then let it boll again, trying
often. If, on the other band, the fond
ast be found grainy, add a cupful of
cold wrter and boll again until the
rlpht consistency Is attained. It may
take a little practice to make perfect.
This fondant will keep good for weeks
In a jar covered with waxed paper.
Vlth the fondant as a basis all sorts
of delightful sweets can be made
Candled Flos. Cut a few flt,s In
strips an Inch wiae and roll these In
fondant When nearly hard cut them
In pieces with n sharp knife.
Date Candy. Roll some balls ot
fondant. Stone some good-sized dates,
cut them In halves, press one-half up
against each side of the ball of fond
nrt Walnuts tray be done In the
Tuttl Fruttl Candy. Take a shal
low pan, line It with waxed paper;
p-t . 'ever of fondant, a layer of
chopped pineapplo, candled cherrlrii,
chopped figs, dates, etc. Cover ths
top with fondant. Ui It harden a lit
tle, then cut in small squares.
Chocolate Creams. Use confec
tioner's cliocolnte for these. Melt it.
Take good stiff fondant, flavor It us
desired, form It Into balls, and drop
them Into the melted chocolate. If
liked, chopped nuts, dates, etc., can
be mixed with the fondant, and makes
a pleasant change.
Chocolate Almonds. Blanch tho
almond meat by pouring boiling water
over them nnd letting them stand a
few moments. Turn tho hot water off
and cover with cold, when the sklu
mny easily be rubbed off between the
thumb and forefinger, llreak some
sweet chocolate Into small pieces, put
Into a dish and set In a larger pan of
hot wnter. When the chocolate Is
melted put a blanched nut meat on
the point ot a skower or darning
needle, or use a candy dipper and dip
Into the melted chocolate. Then lay
on oiled paper to cool. When the
chocolato coating becomes set dip a
second time. Flavor tho melted choc
olate with vanilla If desired.

DELICIOUS FRITTERS OF CORN
Good In, Late Months When Dellcsey
Gets Too Old to Eat from
When corn In tho fall gets too old
to cat from the cob It can still be
made Into delicious corn fritters. As
a rulo these are mado heavy with
flour nnd aro fried In lard so as not
to bo delicate. Tho reclpo given make
them tender and delicious.
To eight cars of corn, grated, tako
two eggs and a llltlo salL Separate
whites nnd yolks. Stir the latter Into
tho corn and Just before frying add
whites which have been beaten to a
Have- plenty of butter sltfllng hot In
a skillet and drop the fritters In, a
tablespoon at a tlmo. Cook unUl a
dellcato brown. Turn with cako
turner to brown on both sides,
Thcsu fritters aro so soft that they
break unless carefully handled. They
should bo cooked and served Imme
diately. Fresh lots are passed as In
sorting hot cokes.
8plced Ginger Cakes.
Theso are wholesome and delicious
for afternoon tea or the lunch basket
It is well to havo a goodly number, tor
they go like porverblal "hot cakes."
Warm together In a big earthen bowl
one pound ot butter, or butter and lard
mixed, and a pint of black, rich mo
lasses. Add ono pound of light brown
sugar, a halt cupful of cream, two
tablespoonfuls of ground ginger, two
tablespoonfuls ot cloves, two grated
nutmegs, a saltspoonful ot salt and a
tablcspoonful each of allsplco and cin
namon. Sift together three pounds of
flour that has been already twice
sifted, two tcaspoonfuls of cream of

to the batter, and, lastly, fold in a
cupful stoned raisins and currants
mixed, a halt cupful thin sliced cit
ron, and a cupful nut meats. Bake in
small pans. In a quick oven.
Useful Kitchen Table.
A most useful artlclo ot kitchen fur
niture Is a small movablo xtnc covered
table. It should be about 28 Inches
high and tho top two fcot square. The
top should be coverod with zlno and
tho table should be mountod on ball
boarlng casters. When canning fruit
or making griddle cakos It can be
rolled up to tho range. You can set
saucepans or frying pans on It It you
wish, as the zlno la easily cleaned. An
undartablo. It required, may bo added
and placod about nlno Inches from the
casters. This has been copied with
Take one quart of flour, make good
biscuit crust, roll out one-half Inch
thick nnd spread with any kind of
fruit, fresh or preserved; fold so that
tho fruit will not run out; dip cloth in
to boiling water and flour It and lay
around the pudding closely, leaving
room to swell; steam ono or ono and
one-halt hours; servo with boiled
sauce; or lay In steamer without a
cloth and steam for ono hour.
Keeping Table Linen,
In keeping tho table linen that is
not In dally use many a housekeeper Is
annoyed to find it has yellowed bad
ly and must bo washed before it can
go on the table again.
This can bo overcome If, after be
ing laundered the cloths and nap
kins are carefully wrapped In deep
blue paper or in a sheet that has
been heavily blued.
Make a rich pie crust, cover a deep
pie plate and bake light brown In a
quick oven. Blip onto a fancy plate;
When cool All with sliced bananas,
oranges, strawbcrrlos or any fruit
that needs no cooking, cover with
whipped croam sweetoned and flavored.
Dew for Crumpled Linen.
When a cotton or linen dress Is
crumpled, but not soiled, hang It out
doors In a heavy dow or fog until
thoroughly dampened. Iron Immedi
ately. Tho dew dampens tho garment
more evenly than sprinkling and obvi
ates tho necessity of folding,
As I will bo hero only a short tlmo
would udvlso those having furnlturo
to bo upholstered or repaired, to bring
It In at onco. Over Fuqua, Holm &
