NUTS FROM SOUP TO DESSERT.
JF you wish to serve a nut dinner you
may do so, from soup to dcssert.
Suppose you begin with nut chowder.
Preak a half pound of mixed nut meals
into small pieces, put them into a
saucepan with four cupfuls of water
and let them simmer for one and a half
hours. Peel and cut Into cubes sev
eral potatoes, turnips and a large
onion. You will also need two cupfuls
of canned or stewed tomatoes Strain
the nut meats, but save the water in
which they have been boiled, as it
forms a valuable stock. Coyer the bot
tom of a kettle with the potatoes, add
a laver of turnips and the onion, with
a sprinkling of thyme, sweet marjoram,
chopped parsley and salt; then a layer
of tomatoes and, last of all. tho nut
meats Repeat the layers In this order
until the Ingredients are all used; then
pour over them all the stock, which
should be boiling Let the mixture
simmer for half an hour, then add two
cupfuls of milk. Thicken with a little
flour and butter if desired. Nut butter
may be used for this thickening It is
also possible to omit the tomatoes If
one wishes without spoiling the flavor
of the chowder.
This tasty nut roast ls made from
walnuts, pecans or Alberts. Put two
teacupfuls of slale breadcrumbs In a
mixing bowl anil moisten with hot wa
ter and let stand a few minutes until
all the water Is absorbed. Add one
cupful of crushed or ground nut meats
which have been broken into small
pieces. Flavor with one teospoonful of
finely sifted sage or mixed herbs and
with either half a teaspoonful of salt or
with ono teaspoonful of lemon juice.
Mix thoroughly and stir in one well
beaten egg. Press into a square pan
to mold Into a loaf, and then turn out
on a baking tin and roast one hour in
a moderate oven. To vary this rulslns,
chopped figs or dates might be used In
stead of the nut meats. You must use
your Judgment about tho amount of
hot water used. The roast should be
moist as ls consistent with Its being
firmly molded when it is put Into the
oven. It is good cold or hot and makes
an excellent sandwich filling.
Nut Mines Pie.
Nut mince pie makes a delicious des
sert, and the ingredients are one cupful
of walnut meats, two cupfuls of apples
cut fine, half cupful of vinegar, half
cupful of water or fruit Juice, half cup
ful of sugar mixed with half a tea
spoonful each of allspice, cinnamon and
salt snd one cupful of raisins. This will
make sufficient filling for two pie
plates which have been lined with pas

TO POLISH A WOOD FLOOR
JF you have a soft wood floor that
needs polishing the first stop ls to
see that It Is absolutely clean. V. hen
the floor has been already painted or
varnished the stains should be removed
with strons ammonia and thorough
scraping; then All all cracks and
dents with putty and apply a filler over
the entire surface of the floor. This
filler can be purchased at places
whre paints and varnishes are sold,
and It should be either mixed with a
little color or a sufficient quantity of
llOOr stain added.
The filler should be applied with a
flat brush or a piece of cloth and
worked In one direction with the grain
of tho wood, while on completion of the
process the room should be closed for
At the end of that time the floor
should be rubbed u:th a long handled,
heavily weighted brush, over which a
piece of carpet has been lacked. Fuial
I) the floor may bo polished with boiled
linseed oil and turpentine, this mixture
being rubbed In well with a cloth and
left for an hour or two to dry, after
which It will be necessary to go over
the floor with the weighted brush.
Instead of a final tou h of this kind
the filler could bo finished with a coat
of stain or varnish or both of them
should be put on with a weighted
brush or an old piece of carpcL
Vhen you have succeeded in getting
a fine polish on tho floor never ruin It

IN EYELET EMBROIDERY DESIGN.
TTERE Is a centerpiece that Is not only easy to work, but one that launders
beautifully. White linen of a medium weight ls used for the centerpiece,
which ls of moderate dimensions. Tho ogtar edge of tho circle is finished with
scallops, and the best way to make these continuous scallops is to pad them
with eeveral strands of embroidery cotton in tho center of the scallops. Tack
them every now and then In couching fashion and gather tho threads closely at
each point of th scallop. To old nadleworkers it is hardly necessary to add
that the dots are worked by running a thread about the outline of each dot,
which is then pierced with a stiletto and worked with the cotton over and over.
The four medallion motifs are done In satin stltcb,

I troubled with superfluous growth of
hair on their faces and arms.
Of course everybody has more or less
hair on her fa. e, but If it is fine and
fair it shows very little.
Even a slight dark growth on the up
per lip Is not disfiguring if people
would only believe and leavo well
, enough alone, but unfortunately a girl
! often gets terrified at tho first sign of
hair, and, thinking she is developing a
regular beard and mustache, sh flics
to some remedy or other.
For a time the skin Is clear and then
a stronger, much coarser growth of
hair appears, so matters go from bad
j to worse.
People cannot be too strongly ad
vised not to do anything to supcrflu
hair unless It Is really disfiguring.
Coarse, dark hairs can be removed by
electricity, but it must be skillfully
performed by a person who knows his
business, because tho needlo must go
right to tho root of the hair and kill it
