AMERICAN WOMAN MAKES WONDERFUL DISCOVERY IN KITCHEN
•— ■ : r-O
She Makes Bread That Anybody Can Eat; No
Blatter How Poor His Digestion.
.! She Doubles the Value df Every Loaf by Making
It Twice as Nutritious.
She Eliminates the Hardest Part of the Labor of
Her Method Is One That Anybody Can Use.
By Albert F. Ferguson.
PHILADELPHIA, PA., Jan. 15,1913.
The announcement is made today of a wonderful
discovery in chemistry.
The chemistry in this discovery is bread-baking;
the chemist is a woman, and her laboratory was her
I came to Philadelphia to learn what I could
about this new way of baking bread so that I might
tell you and your neighbor the why and the how and
all about it, just as the scientific sharks are preparing
to tell the world of science about it.
There seems to be no doubt (lint Mrs. Lydla Coale shui |.l. is
THE FIRST PERSON IN THE WOULD, MAX OH WOMAN, WHO
KVKIt KNKW HOW TO MAKE BREAD AS IT OUGHT TO UK
That seems like a big statement, for we hare been bread-mak
ing for many thousand years, and every woman who hakes >s
positive that she knows just how to do it, and that her bread Is
good and wholesome. ,
But Mrs. Sharplcss has
proved that every method
used Is wrong. For the one
thing Unit every woman
thinks is essential to good
bread-making is the thing
she must avoid — THE
BREAD MUST NOT BE
And as for wholesome
nessTHE BREAD THAT
WAS DEADLY to anyone
whose digestion was not
Mother didn't know how to
make bread. Wife didn't know,
tho bakers didn't know, the doc
tor* didn't know. And the doc
tors admitted it.
Love and wifely devotion led
Mrs. Sharpless to make the great
I Her husband became very 111.
He was a great bread eater. The
doctor forbade it.
"Why?" asked Mrs. Sharpless.
"I bake It myself."
The doctor smiled. "All bread
Is dangerous. There isn't a loaf
baked that is fit to put in a
human stomach unless the stom
ach Is unusually strong," he said.
"Because of the raw starch it
contains. Raw starch in bread
Is bad. To hosts of people it is
deadly. And 90 per cent of the
starch In your bread Is raw."
Then Mrs. Sharpless began to
study. She read everything there
was in Philadelphia on bread
and wheat. Then she went to
Boston and exhausted the capac
ity of the great public library
there. She studied chemistry
and examined all kinds of bread
and flour under the microscope.
Ten years of the hardest sort of
- work she put In on the problem.
She found that in the ordinary
processes of making bread the
minute granulates of starch in
the wheat flour were gathered in
email cells, hundreds of them In
a cell. They became coated with
gluten, a gelatinous substance
which formed the cells, and were
protected so carefully that the
heat didn't cook them or break
them open. All manner of ex
periments were tried, but raw
starch remained In the bread.
Finally Mrs. Sharpless got a
"hunch" from the way a paper
hanger mixed his flour for paste.
She mixed her flour, water,
yeast, etc., as quickly and lightly
. as possible. Then she set It
aside to "raise."
When the mixture was
"raised," she did not knead
it. She merely shaped it
into loaves quickly and deft

make more than two or three '

THE HOME I
There are a few things which
should be remembered in fitting
oneself, especially if it be the
difficult matter of waist-fitting.
DO NOT put the waist on tho
wrong side to fit it. Always try
a garment on and do tiie fitting
of it the way you propose to wear
it. This suggestion Is important
for the reason that few women
are exactly the same in slope of
shoulder and waist on both sides.
When the waist Is fitted to the
figure on one side and is turned
over on the other, you may find a
defect which is <hie to this very
When putting on a waist to be
fitted slip the hands underneath
it and turn the shoulder and un
derarm seams toward the front.
If there are other seams turn
these toward the back. This la
necessary In order to make the
waist lie flat. In pinning the
front or back together, which is
one of the first things to do,
have at least two guide lines. The
waist line at the bottom may hi
one. The other might be a line
which dressmakers call the "chest
line," a line parallel with the
waist line, but only three inches
down from the neck and running
about six inches across the mid
In making alterations by pin
ning be sure to pin SECURELY.
Otherwise the alterations will be
of little use, as by tho time the
waist has been removed some of
the alteration marks may have
been lost through falling pins.
Many women who think they
are clever do not seem to under
stand that a really clever wom
an conceals her cleverness.
You need pay no attntlon to
the nasty things people say
about you—unless they are true.
Few women can create a sen

Below is a little poem. sent
by one of our readers. It is full
of meat for thought and well
worth remembering and using
for a daily reminder throughout
the New Year.
If we could know each other's
And feel the pain another bears;
If we could see with others'
And shed another's bitter tears,
We might forgive an unkind
And be more thoughtful of our
We then could see as we are
And know ourselves as we are
If we could live our lives again
And know the past, from youth
If we could be re-write our

And undo more we did before!
How white would be the leaves
