PROGRAM FOR TOMORROW.
Lord and Lady Baltimore Cake
I attended today's meeting and was
impressed with this fact in particular:
That Mrs. Sjplo belongs to the com
mon tense school of cookery. This
fact appeals particularly to me, as I
am Just a li't.le bit old fashioned my
self. I believe in domestic science
and all that, but nothing bores me
quite as much as to attend a lecture
at which th si:aker hands out a i
maddening mass of scientific terms
which three-fourths of us do not com
prehend. NoUthat 1 do wn believe in
proteins carbohydrates and calor'fic
values. Oh, dear, no! But I believe
In a lecturer Fining up her audience
and basing the style of her remarks
thereupon. I think Mrs. Siple has this
happy faculty, for the audience . cer
tainly seemed most appreciative of
her remarks at both lecture-demonstrations.
I know that I understood every
word she said and that I learn
ed a good deal about the prep
aration of Irf-tter foods and a good
deal more about digestible foods. Mrs.
Siple doubtless knows all about the
scientific side of cooking, and there
were doubtless a good many women in
the pudience who would have under
stood her if she had used stient.'fic
language, but the majority of us over
there this afternoon were of the com
mon or garden home variety of house
wives, Intent upon simply learniug
how to prepare better foods, more
wholesome foods, at a greater conser
vation of our pocketbooks.
AI'PKTIZfXti l'OODM PKRVEI).
This afternoon the Kmpire theatre
was full of animated and smiling ex
clamation points. Hero are some of
them: "Oh, isn't that delicious!"
"Mrs. Siple, I nover tasted such cro
quettes In all my life!" "You Just
must tell me how you made that."
"Walt till I write that down' "Such
doliglitful colonial bread. and so sim
ile, too!" et,c Iu short, today s lec-turi-denionstration
was the most hap
py gathering of representative Rock
Island women I have ever seen, and
every woman there not only enjoyed
herself but got some new cooking
ideas for future reference.

national motorcycle road race to be
held at Elein. 111., which caused him
to pinch himself to, ascertain whether J tlon and a11 of tlle motorcycle speed
this was an entry of a yacht instead
of a motorcycle rider until he looked
up the records and found that Gray
Sloop is a wide awake young man who
this year sprang from nowhere and
won the motorcycle championship of
North Carolina. The west has iot
yet seen Sloop in action and he is apt
to prove a pretty speedy dark horse
if all the reports of him are true. The
North Carolina champion will repre
sent the Reading-Standard factory.
The first official for the big race
was selected today by a unanimous
vote of the committee in charge of
the arrangements. He is "Whipple,
