Some of the Finest Lines in
the Country Have Been
This holiday season has been
marked by a good sale of holiday
greeting cards from the lines carried
by the Examiner. A few years ago
the greeting card was .seldom used.
Now the greeting card takes the
place of presents in many cases, and
more people are annually remember
ed than when real presents were in
Colville has had a line of greeting
cards that probably no other small
town in the country has seen. During
the last three summers the publisher
has taken vacation trips, through the
manufacturing and distributing cen
ters, and has personally visited the
makers of these cards. Through per
sonal acquaintance and business re
lationships he has been able to get
small quantities of the lines that
usually go only to the laiper ritirs,
which each year will consume all
that these factories can produce. \o
cards were bought through whole
salers, but all came direct from the
be.st makers, which might 1m- said is
a most unusual l'avoi for a small
town dealer to get.
The result has been un immediute
seizure of a good tiling by the buy
era in this vicinity. Some orders
have come by mail, with instructions
to do the picking of the curds for
the customer. All cards in stock
have been placed in cabinet, so that
purchasers may really do their own
buying by simply taking their time
and making their own selections us
Greeting cards are emphatically in
vogue. In 1921 there were more
than 50,000,000 greeting raids sold
in thp United States. The loading
occasions are Christmas, New Year's,
Valentine's day, Easter, Mother's day
and graduation time. Yet curds are
made foe every conceivable occasion,
with sentiments that fit the occasion.
The Examiner expects to continue
these lines of the better cards direct
from the makers, and it is probable
that next year's Christmas line will
again be selected personally by the
publisher at the factories. No stock
in any city excelta the Examiner
lines, and even the cheaper lines
that are hawked by wholesalers and
traveling mm do not undersell these
better lines secured by the Examin
Some time Colville and the sur
rounding territory will grow large
enough to warrant these better cards.
Meantime the Examiner is carrying
them'from a pure pleasure in seeing
Colville have a little of the best. It
takes continued nerve to ask the
makers to sell a few card*, when
they can sell quantities to larger
place. 1. But it's been done, and it
will continue for awhile at least.
Prices for Fine Apples
Continue to Be Small
Apples are a drug on the local
markets. From all reports, the
northwest has produced more apple*
than can be marketed, due to various
causes, among them being the early
shortage of freight cars, the con
tinued shortage of buying ability of
the American people, and the failure
to continue the advertising propa
ganda of "Eat More Apples."
The crop in Stevens county was
very good, and very plentiful. Prices
have run from 75 cents to $1.60 a
box, the Jonathans bringing best
prices. Apples in bulk f. o. b. the
grower can be bought for 60 cents
a box, or even less, which leaves
little excuse for local people to be
without the best fruit this winter.

less than that of keeping two smaller

Some of the Recipes
Used 200 Years Ago
A i|iiuint old English cook book,
nearly 200 years old, ha.s been given
the library of the State college of
Washington, as an interesting ad
dition to the home economics texts,
by a member of the faculty who
each year gives away some valued
possession on TEanksgiving.
The book is a copy of Howard's
Cookery, printed in London "at The
Rose, over against the North-Door
of St. Paul's" in 1773, and is bound
in mellow old brown leather, hand
tooled, and in good preservation. On
the first puge in faded ink is in
scribed "Amelia's Book," and "Mr.
Howard, Oxford-ale Batsman"—pos-
sibly showing where Amelia's in
terest was centered.
There are "Five Hundred New
Recipts in Cookery" in the volume,
including "hare pye, to ragoo wood
cocks, to make almond puddings in
guts, turnip soop, syllabub, pottage,
pickled samphire, sugar amlet, and
to souse a Conger eel." Many of the
recipes require white wine, sack,
ale and like viands forbidden of
Volstead. There are recipes for the
making of gooseberry wine, July
flower wine, and cowslip wine, and
various of the recipes call for "a
pint of the best Rhenish wine."
Rules are given for the pickling
of all sorts of things—broom buds,
mushrooms, artichoke-bottoms, ashen
keys, hips, barberries and thistle
Here in one that does not require
the vast amount of labor that many
of them do (poor other-day house
wives, beatinx for hours with a
wooden spoon): "To candy all sorts
of flowers in their own natural col
iii take your flowers with the stalks
on and wash them over with rose
water wherein Gum-arabick is dis
solved; sift fine sugar over them
and set them to dry on & sieve in an
oven, and they will be very nice."
At the back of the book is "a bill
of fare for every month in the
year" (first and second course) show
ing how largely folks lived on a
meat diet a century or two ajro.
