In really a very simple process With-j
out this knowledge or attention there
w ill ever be mystery and uncertainty j
alxtut It, and there will always be In
different rexiilts. i
There are only four ingredient ab-,
solutely necessary for the making of!
u loaf of raised wheat broad. They
ure good bread flour, fresh yeast,
liquid eli her milk or water nnd snltt
Other iugredlenta are often used, but
i hey are not necessary. Tor Instance, j
shortening Is soinetlmes added. This
makes it richer loaf Sugar, too. may be ,
u-id In small quantity. This hastens
the growth of tlie yeast plains. Potato,
water occasionally replaces the milk
'r water and makes a moist loaf, while I
potatoes and hop water forma mixture
in which the yenst colonies are quickly
started. But good bread can lie made
without the addition of any of these
Flour Used In Breadinaking.
In order that we muy have a well'
raised light loaf It is necessary to use
a Hour containing a large per cci.t of j
gluten. This Is the flour made from j
the so called "hard" wheals. Such I
flour lias less water than the Hour
made from the "soft" wheat, therefore,
mixed with a , liquid, gives a larger
loaf, tiluteu is n grayish, rnlibcrllku
subtaii e found In Hour after t lie )
starch has been washed cut It Is the!
"gum" obtained fixjiii tlicl:ig a hand-'
ful of wheat, as known by most people,
who have spent their childhood in thai
country. This very character of glu-j
len makes It accessory In hrcuk mak
ing. It stretches and stretches, form-j
Ing llttlo pockets In which the gas Is
retained in the loaf until It Is baked.
The heat of I hp oven hardens the glu
ten quickly before It has had time to
relax, and srt the loaf keeps its puffed
Good bread flour should be white,
with Just a suggestlou of yellow. Aft
er being pressed In the hand It should
fall loosely apart. If it keeps the Im

It has too much moisture. When rub

This useful agent In brendtuaklng Is
as old as the hills, and its nctlou la
better understood when one Is familiar
with It. Yeast Is a microscopic plant,
consisting of a single round or oval
cell. The rapidity with w hich It grows
and reproduces Itself gives It much of
Its importance. It reproduces either
by scudiiu out buds which breuk off j
as new plants or by forming spores
which will grow Into new plants under
Like all plants, yeast requires heat,
moisture and food In order to grow.
Tho degree of heat nt which it grows
best Is from ". to !io degrees, nnd this
Is the temperature at which bread
should be kept throughout tle proce.is
of making, if It were not for the liq

any covering and so require scrubbing. '
This Is one of the Items of work which

keeper's schedule. The white sanded
floors, tables, etc., are attractive to
the eye and a Joy to a certain type of,
housekeeier, but they represent ton

In modern methods, floors should be j
covered with some material easily
ileaned, and tables, sinks, shelves, etc. j
should be painted or covered with r.lnc. I
tlic or oilcloth. The sine table and the '.
tile sink are a lasting pleasure and
lessen work to such nn extent that J

The Use of the Kitchen.
Ouo last important point to remem
ber In furnishing a kitchen la that lot

should have lis tools conveniently ar
