You're not a card with a ribbon bow
And cupids and roses painted line?
You're Just a boy, not a valentine!"
Then Georgie blushed and meekly said,
"To you by Cupid I was led.
And my love for you. so very true,

If improperly cooked
beef kidneys are a
coarse dish, but when
carefully prepared they
make an excellent stew.
Remove all superfluous
fat, trim them and cut
them into chunks. Let
them soak in cold salt
ed water for about an
hour. Rinse them very thoroughly and
then set them over the fire in fresh
cold water. When they come almost to
the boiling point and begin to show
scum on the surface pour off the water
and add fresh co.d water. A bettor
way, if one has time, is to remove the
kidneys, put them in a new pot or lay
them aside a moment until the pot tb; Jy
were cooked in has been thoroughly
washed out. Then put them back. In
order to get the strong flavor out of
this meat it is necessary to remove as
much scum and blood from it as pos
sible. Let thorn reheat in water a sec
ond time. Then pour off this second
water and treat as before. It may be
necessary to do it a third and a fourth
time also. When the stage is reached
in which the water is quite clear and
free from scum cut up one or two
onions—a good sized one for every kid
ney—one or two small carrots and one
or two potatoes. Put them into the
water around the meat and cook slow
ly for about two hours or until a
gravy is formed. Some cooks add a
little lemon juice or part of the yellow
peel of a lemon to the stew. The car
rots and onions may be left out and
the kidneys stewed by themselves, the
gravy being flavored only with a tiny
glass of wine and lemon juice.
Two cupfuls of sugar, two cupfuls
of flour, one cupful of butter, one
large cupful of English walnuts, one
cupful of potatoes, mashed and sea
soned, ready to serve; one and one
half cupfuls of chocolate, grated; one
half cupful of milk, five eggs, using
all the yolks and whites of three,
keeping two whites for boiled frost
ing; two teaspoonfuls of baking now
der, one each of cloves, cinnamon, all
spice and nutmeg, one each of lemon
and vanilla. Rake either in loaf or
layers. Cream butter and sugar. Add
milk, then yolks of eggs, beaten high;
then potatoes, soft spices, chocolate
and baking powder in flour, and add
to eggs and butter. Then add beaten
whites and lastly the nuts. Will keep
fresh for a week or ten days.
Split Pea Soup.
For split pea sotfp. so good } n this
cold weather, soak a quart of split peas
overnight In the morning put thorn
on the stove in plenty of fresh cold
water, about four times as much water
as peas. Add a large piece of salt
pork, half a Rood sized carrot, a good
sized leek, two potatoes of medium
size, one root of parsley, one teaspoon
ful of thyme, one large turnip, a
bunch of celery tips, a large slice of
bread and salt and pepper to taste.
Let the soup boil all day, adding fresh
water as it boils down. Strain before
A Fine Sauce.
Apples and cranberries are very
good cooked together, about half and
half. Let & quart of the mixture cook
with about a cupful of water or just
enough to prevent burning. At the
end of twenty minutes add two cup
fuls of granulated sugar and let the
mixture cook for about ten minutes
more. Turn into molds and serve
when cold. The apples seem to mel
low the berries, and the sauce will be
preferred to one entirely of berries by
those who do not like the sharpness
of the latter when cooked alone.
For the Virginia wafers that are
served with afternoon tea and other
light repasts work a couple of table
spoonfuls of butter into two cupfuls
of flour and mix in enough ice water
to make a stiff paste. Then put the
dough on to a floured board and roll
into a very thin sheet—it should be little
thicker than paper—arid cut In rounds
with a saucer. Bake in a quick oven
on a floured pan. The wafers should
have an uneven, bubbly surface and
be eaten cold. They are delicious with
a conserve or jam.
White raisin bread made into sand
wiches with minced nuts and cream
cheese is delicious. Cut the slices very
thin and spread one with cream cheese
and the other with the nuts. Both
should be tattered first. If they are
cut in the shape of card suits for after
noon refreshments at card clubs and
parties they are very sightly. The
card suit cutters are kept by the house

hacon or i»ork bones can.be added to
soup stock for richer flavoring.

The Jersey, Ayrshire and llolstein are
great milk and butter cows, but their
calves are not to bo considered when

Calves are often troubled by ring
worms. It is due to a vegetable para

lard, oil or grease. Wash the part af

the sulphur ointment.
Cows require from one to eight
ounces of salt per day. The more

they can have access to it every day.
According to an experiment made at
