at a time. Then put the leaves In a porcelain
lined kettle with just enough water to cover them;
put the lid on and let cook slowly until tender,
when the sugar Is added and boiled gently until
it forms a syrup. The conserve is then poured
into jars and sealed. These make attractive
decorations for icings and candies, and a spoonful
placed on top of the whipped cream on coffee,
chocolate or saucers of dessert gives a delicate
finishing touch. These leaves are also a delightful
addition to cake batter, pudding sauces and mince
meat. They may also be served In tiny cups on

TAKING CARE OF THE KNIVES

in brown paper and lay them in a drawer or
closet. A set of elegant knives, used only on
great occasions, were kept in this way for ovev.' M>o
years without a spot of rust.
Knife Handles (Ivory), to Prevent Being Cracked.
Never let knife blades stand in hot water, as is
sometimes done to make them wash easily. The
heat expands the steel, which runs up into the
handle a little way, and this cracks the Ivory.
Knife handles should never lie in water. A hand
some knife, or one used for cooking, is soon spoiled
in this way.
To Fasten Loose Knife Handles —The best
cement for this purpose consists of one pound of
colophony (purchasable at the druggist's) and
eight ounces of sulphur, which are to he melted
together and either kept in bars or reduced to
powder. One part of the powder is to be mixed
with a half part of iron filings, fine sand or brick
dust, and the cavity of the handle is then to be
filled with this mixture. The stem of the knife or
fork is then firmly inserted and kept in position
until the cement hardens.
