Hsldes belmr the month itlven over
to weddltiKS and other festivities In
cident to commencement, Juno Is tho
month when nature's bounties must bo
taken Into account and utlllr.od for futuru
days to come.
Chcrrte, berries, currants and roaes:
what a weolth of sweetness from which
to draw for dally needs a.s well as thoao
that will bo sure to materialize months
later. And lust the berries concerning
which Poteler said: "tlod mluht lmvo
made a hotter beiry but he never did."
Whllo there ale htrawborrv nhort-cake-s
and strawberry shoitcnkes. the ono that
noes to tho right spot Is the ono such n.
our mothers and grandmothers made be-
for us. To make It ncconlliiR to tradi
tion: Plft toKcther Into a larwo mlxitiR
bowl, four cupfuls Hour already once
sifted, n half tcaspoonful of salt and n
tablcspoonfiil of sui?ar. Chop In threo
laro tabletioonfuls of butter. Dissolve
a level tcaspoonful of soda In a little,
lukewarm water, and odd to a hURu cup
ful of sour cream or rich sour milk.
Add also a well beaten eRR. Mix with
a llexlblo knlfo Into a rtouph soft enouRh
to roll easily. It must not be handled
more than necessary.
Iloll llchtly and quickly Into two rather
thin shoets. Bake In well Rreased round
tins, one sheet on top of the other, tho
flrEt one well brushed with softened but
ter. Hake In a hot oven. When done,
separate and cover the lower hnJf with a
thick layer of strawberries, crushed and
sweetened. Place tho second cake on top
and cover with whole berries. Pust with
powdered sur.it and serve with thick
yellow cream. Bweet milk and bakltuc
powder, can be used In place of the sour
cream and sods.
On n-coount of Its delicate nnd evanes
cent flavor and color, there Is no fruit
that requires more care In Its canning or
prcscrlnR. In selecting the berries be
sure that they am ripe, dry and freshly
Ralhered, For this leason It Is better to
wait for the homo Rrown berries. Theso
that have laid lu tho market over nlRht
at c scarcely worth the trouble of handl
ing. Ho sure thy enns to he used aro
sterilized, tops and all, the rubbers new.
If pieserved according to tho American
custom, allow sugar pound for pound,
but never allow tho berries that nro to bo
canned to htand In tho augar, as It ex
tracts the Jules and touRhens tho fruit.
Pack the fiesli berries Into the cans,
shaking clown well, but taking c-aro not
to crush. Have ready a hot ayrup made
from suRar and the Julco squeezed from
bmaller borrles and slowly pour In the hot
syrup over tho fresh berries In the jars,
leaving an Inch spaoo at the top. IIuvo
a common wash holler a third full of
water that Is about the same temperature!
a.s that of the Jars holding the hot syrup.
Set the cans on a wooden rack In the bot
tom of tho boiler, and place straw or
kitchen towels between tiro cans to pro-
ent their bitting each other. Put the
run coven on tho Jars, but leave off thu
rubbers. Hrlng to a boll and ius soon as
the ,srup In the Jars rises, showing that
the contents are scalding hot, lift the
Jurs out on to 11 dry board. Kill each
Jar bilmmlng full with tho scalding syrup
that is left In tho sauceran, put on the
uIiIkts and screw on the covers as
tightly possible. When cold tighten
aaaln, wrap each ono In paper and set In
1 cool, dry dark closet or cellar where the
temperature does not rlso above 70 de
grees. The celebrated Wiesbaden process,
which Is considered tho very best method
for preserving strawberries, docs not
differ materially from this.
Select two lots of beriles, both hound
and rl the ono to maku tho Juice with,
the other to can entire. For every pound
of tho smaller bcrrloH allow a half-pound
of sugar, and place In layers In a Mono
rro k or earthen Jar over night. Tho
next morning drain off tho Julco and odd
policy or sugar 111 1110 pioportlon of a
quarter pound of honey or a hall pound
of sugar to each pint of Juice. Hull tho
syrup down to one-third or thn original
cpuinUty, skimming off any froth that
arises. While the syrup K . cabling rlnso
tho Jars Inside ami out with hot water,
fill close with tho largo whole herrlus that
have been hulled, fasten tho lid part
way, leaving off the rulsTs, then sot In
fruit rack-s or a dripping ,, n,0 bot
torn of which is a thiol, wet towel, on tho
back of the range or In the oven to keep
hot. If on top of the novo Invert a wash

put on tho rubbers nnd screw us tight as
possible. When cold, screw ugaln, and,
having wrapped tho Juts In papor, set
away lu a cool dry pluco.
ST1HA WHUHKY JAM.
Mash tlpo strawberries and cook In
their own Julco until reduced very con
siderably. Then add sugar, heatud In the
oven, allowing tin tie quarters of a pound
to each pound of the fruit, and cook
steadily until of tho required consistency.
If too sweet, add a little pln plant, lemon

Whllo sour cherries make the best plo,
tho sweet cherries are, nut to be despised.
They aru usually pitted, though many peo
plo llko thu tlavur Imparled by the Btoncs.
This Is, thcrefoie, u matter of opinion.
A deep tin should bo used for cherry plo,
tho deeper tho better. Many housekeepers
complain that their chvrry plea run over
In the oven, and much of tho Julco Is lost..
To provont this wastu of nectur, a strip of
cotton cloth may bo wt und pressnd
about tho rim after thu plo Is all ready
to go In tho ovn, or u paper funnel may
be lusertud lu the opening In the centre,
of tho top crust, to allow tor tho escape
of steam, thus relieving tho crust from
pressure. When the under crust Is spieoil
on the plate, sprinkle, lightly with Hour
01 brush ovui with whllu of orr. Tills
last Hie Germans always do in making
fruit pies. Pack full of tho cherries
sweetened to taste, died.io a little Hour
over the top, then put on the upper crust
This cull.i for a pound and a half sour
cherries, ouo cup pearl tuplocn, and sugar
to sweotuii. Wash tho tapioca, lu several
watcis, cover with cold wulor and soak
over night. Put on tho lire with one
pint boiling water and simmer slowly
until tho tapioca Is perfectly clear. Stone
tho cherries, stir into tho boiling tapioca
and sweeten to taste. Tako from the
lire, turn Into tho dish In which It Is to
ho served, and set to cool. Hervo cold
with I'reim, This will muko enough for
ph i:h kiivino en kiuu i:s.
Sweet chftrles Bre suIta.hIo for canning,
but otil., tho sour ones make good preser
ves. .Most housewives now prefer to leave
nil or part of tho stones In the fruit when
cunning or preserving, thinking the .stonej
add sreatly to the flavor. If stoned,
however, bo sure and save every drop of
Juice. Kor canning, tho swiet ox-hearts
are test. Sterilize glass Jars by immers
ing can and cover for Jt minutes In boll
ing water. Kmpty one can at iv time and
1111 with sound chtirles. Have ready u
syrup made by ullowlng one cup water
and three pounds sugar to every six
quarts of cherries. Holl sugar and water
10 minute, then pour the scalding syrup
in the cans; rook In the oven or In hot
water bath, according to directions nl
reucly given, for Jo or 16 minutes. Take
out, adjust rubber, 1111 with more .scald
ing syrup, then bcal. The cherries look
very pretty with part or whole steins
For this, the sour Kentish or Morello
cherry, the Karly Richmond or Montgom
ery, aui best. Stem, but leave stones
In or not ns prefurred. Weigh the fruit,
allowing sugar pound for pound. Put
the cherries In the preserving kettle In
layers, sprinkling sugar between the lay
eis until fruit and sugar 111 e about four
or five inches doip. Add the Julco, If you
have stoned tho fruit, and heat slowly to
the boiling point. .Slum carefully, thou

Tho high cost of living necessitates
greater economy In tho homo. Labor,
light and fuel are the three most expen
sive things In modern housekeeping nnd
anything that will give better light for
less mutiny, savo tho cost of hired help
md lessen tho monthly bills for fuel, Is
a friend In need.
Illuminating engineer! have shown that
the common oil lamp nnd tho gas Jet are
fur mote cosily than electric lights. The
oil and gas destroy tho p.ilnt, smoko up
tho wall paper and not Infrequently set
fire to the house. Aside from tho mutches
used, thn new chimneys, lamps, globes,
wicks, the purchase of oil fuel and the
euro of tho oil lumps, the item of paper
and paint makes theso oil lamps by far
tho most expensive. Electricity does not
requlro oven a match once It Is Installed.
It gives off no dangerous gases to run up
needless doctor hills, does not harm thu
furnlturo und household furnishings, and
saves all the time formerly spent In rlfnn
Ing nnd filling tho old oil lamps. The Illu
minating engineers have made a practical
study of their work and 'by tho use of the
right tints for paper and paint ran Install
electricity so It will give a perfect light
for a very little cost. Formerly more than
half the Unlit wus alworbed by daik wull
paper and the smoky ceilings A light
buff finish to tho walls and white paint
r fleet the most light and give tho gteat
et efficiency to tho lamps. The engineer
places the lamps so thote will tie no sharp
points of light to ruin tne ej,, Science
has also devised new shiid- s and reflec
tors, made on purely scientific lines, to
diffusa the lluht to the veiy best advan
tage. Tho latent Improvement- In Im-nti-dpsoent
lighting savo fully twn-thlrds of
tho former cost. Very lecentlv the now
metal filament lamps were Introduced by
tho C.eneral Electric rnmpnny, giving a
pure white light. ncnrl akin to actual
sunlight, and consuming very little elec
tricity for candlo-powor. While the month
ly bills for electi Ic lighting Is II. M tho
new lamps will give tho same quality of
astly bettor light for about $5o a month.
Fuel fur the home cooking and heating
is a verv costly Item In the course of the
ear. Coal costs nearly J7 a ton In most
places, and any device which will help
to got loo most heat energy out of this
precious fuel meets with tho Instant ap
proval of overv householder. Small elec
trie fans aro the most useful In obtaining
an even distribution of heat throughout
tho house when operated In connection
with a hot air furnace. The fan can ho
Installed direct In tho Intake pipe or used
In any room to suck tho hot air through
the pipes. Such a fan will eliminate the
cold' part of the house and reduce the
temperaturo In the rooms which are con
tlntmlly getting too hot. Electric fans
can iiNn bo used to distribute the heat
from a steam radiator by allowing the
breeze from the fan to play on the surface.
The use of fans in this way will warm
a houo quicker and with less coal than
allowing the heat to settle In spots and
places of lis own accord.
Kloetrlo cooking In the kitchen Is Ideal
for many reasons. It saves all the tlm
formerly wasted In dumping ashes, carrv
ing coal anil building and fixing the fit.
The electric heat comes and goes wit'.
tho turning of a switch. When a special
heating into" Is secured for the opera
tion of elect rio cooking utensils and the
iovLos are used In connection with tho
flreloss cooker, tho "electric kitchen" Is
tho most economical nnd sanitary In use
to-dny. One family In Schenectady, an
nglneer of tho General Electric company,
by nctual test saves nearly a dollar a
month by changing his kitchen range
from a coal flic to the wooden electric
stove and the flreless cooker.
'I he small motor has almost solved the
ervant problem. Of courso there aro
manv things a small motor cannot do.
but It will swoop and clean the whole
house, clothing, bedding and funiltu
with the aid of the vacuum cleaner. It
will sift the ashes, grind the food, shar -en
thn knives and polish the silver, to
say nothing about grinding the coffer
nnd freezing tho ice cieam. The small
motor will nlso pump tho water, where
pumping Is necessary, and nn elect! le
floor iHillsher has been Invented.
llo-t of all, the "electric servant" Is will
ing to work .ill the tlmo and all hours of
the day, never finding fault with the
children, complaining about Illness or de
manding hnlf holidays and evenings. Tho
motors are ready and willing In work nt
any tlmo nnd for as long as deslted. They
eat" nothing but oil and their mainten
ance Is almost nothing. Kurthermoro they
can no trusted to lie honest nnd will not
carry away groceries, clothing or valua
Hy far tho greatest drudgery about the
house is tho weekly washing and Ironing,
In the olden days when washing and Iron
ing was clone entirely by hand, this wan
a long and tedious process. To-day, In the
electric! home, the small motor turns the
washing machine) and wrings out the
clothing while) tho housewife reads tho
latest novel. Centilfug.il drers, run hy
motor power, nro mudci lu sizes small
enough for tho larger homes so that the
clothing can ho dried as fast as washed
rcgardlets of the weather, nnd doing away
with all tho old bo. her of hanging up and
taking clown tho wash. When the clothing
Is dry the electric Iron Is renly In an In
Mant to do thn Ironing. With electricity,
tho Ironing can bo done on tho back porch
duilng the hot weather with no running
buck and forth between tho board und the
hot stove after hot Irons.
It has been thoroughly proven that
electricity will save money and glvo cor
rect lighting for nny home, electricity
will save fuel and give better cooking ser
vico In most any kitchen, and tho small
motor will s:v tho cost of a hired girl
and save many weaiy hours that nro an
nually spent at the boo .old 'vu-lri'l"
