American Cook Wastes Liquids From
Which French Cook Would Make
"Only water," says the American
and English cook, pouring off the
liquid from asparagus and cauliflower
and onions and potatoes, and thereby
sending down her kitchen sink that
of which a French woman would
make an appetizing meal.
In French and Italian kitchens the
soup pot stands always on tag stove,
and Into It goes every bit <f water
from the following vegetables:
Onions, peas, beans, turnips, parsnips,
carrots, potatoes, asparagus, arti?
chokes, cauliflower and cabbage. The
liquid from "greens," such as beet
tops, spinach, dandelion and kale can?
not be used for soup, but the water
from spinach Is eicellent as a sauce
for fish. If slightly thickened and
flavored with butter.
The soup pot, receiving all this con?
tribution of savory liquid, does not
need the great quantities of meat that
make It so expensive an Item In
American and English economics.
The bone from a port* bouse or sir*
loin steak, wall cracked, is sufficient,
or, from a leg of lamb that has been
cooked rare, or from any roasted or
Endless varlatlonn can be made on
this foundation of a bone and water.
A cupful of dried Lima beans and
half a bo-u of cabbage, chopped, to?
gether with a bit from the dinner of
the day before, like string beans or
carrots, will give a very good Milan?
ese soup, of which Italians are so
fond. A tu*, spoonful of ttxf&ct of
Beef diluted with a quart of the es?
sence of the pot will produce fine con
somme. In August, when peas are
getting too old and coarse to be eat?
en as a vegetable, strain a quart of
them into the pot, after cooking them
thoroughly, add the water in wbich
they were boiled, thicken very slight?
ly, and you will hav* a puree of peas
that cannot be improved upon.
Clear vegetable soup can be pro?
duced by putting a cup of finely chop?
ped parsley, onion and celery Into
the pot and simmering half an hour.
"Croutons," little cubes of tottsted
bread, should be dropped it at the
last moment. Rich vegetable soup is
msde by adding to the pot two or
three fresh tomatoes, several onions,
a bunch of carrots, two potatoes
diced and a few stalks of celery. Any
vegetables left from a dinner should
be cut into little bits and dropped
Into the soup pot.
Raw string beans, chopped and
cooked an hour in the pot, and a
handful of water creis, added half an
hour before serving, makes au un?
usual soup, which is typically French.
TO KEEP PARLOR RUG FLAT
By Uss of Cleverly Contrived snap
Button Exssperating Hummoc?s
An ingenious somebody has thought
of a way to keep the parlor rug from
humping Itself Into exasperating hum?
mocks when the bridge table is drag?
ged over It. and the bedroom rug from
curling meanly at its edge so that you
stumble over It and break your eye?
glasses against the door jamb. The
new device is nothing more ncr less
than a cleverly contrived snap-button
and catch?much larger, of course,
than the tiny affair which tailors use
to fasten skirt openings. The bu ton
Is tacked to the floor and the catch
stitched to the wrong side of the ring
?and there you are. It is the work of
only a moment to unfasten the snap
catch and loosen the rug for a shaking
out of doors.

A BKICK FAMINE.
Building Operation-. Overtax Southern
From the Dally Item. June 1"?.
Sumter is net the only town in the
South that has a building boom well
under way, and in consequence there
is an unprecedented demand for
brick. In Columbia more buildings
ere under way than ever before and
the brick works there canned supply
the demand, ami today the Sumter
Brick Works had to turn down an
order for a million bricks for deliv- \
ery in Columbia. Within the past
month the Sumter FSriek Works has
had to decline orders for several mil?
lion brick from out of town custo?
mers since the demand in town is so
great that the plant is overtaxed to
keep up with orders for local de?
livery. The Sumter Brick Works has
hnd to buy brick from other yards to
Supply its customers and is still buy?
ing wherever brick can be obtained to
fdl orders. The trouble It to get the
brick anywhere, for the Columbia,
Cnmden, Society Hill, Marlboro, Che
raw. Augusta and other brick plants
are in the same tix as the local con?
cern and have more orders than they
can take care of. The Savannah News
of the 14th had an article on the
brick famine in that city, condition
there being about the same as in
Smith Carolina, The scarcity of
bring is due to some extent to the
wet winter and spring which curtailed
the output, but the chief cause of
trouble Is the activity in building in
all Sections Of the Southeast.

STOLE ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE.
Willie Barfleld of Spring Hill Kan
Away With Hi* Employer*! Wife.
From the Dally Item, June 15,
This morning two gentlemen from
Blshopville, Messrs. Realey and Bell
had a very unusual and interesting
tale to tell of one man running away
with another man's wife and their
search for a horse and buggy which
was USed in the escapade.
it seems from what they stated that
on last Tuesday night Willie Barfleld.
a young white man. formerly of
Spring inn. Lee County, wem to Mr.
H. B. Newsom's stables at Blshop?
ville and asked to hire a horse and
buggy, lb- secured the turnout and
stated that he would be back later in
the evening. From there he went to
Mr, Oscar Bluckwell's residence, near
McBee, in Chesterfield county, where
he joined Mrs. Blackwell, the two
leaving for parts unknown.
it seems thai Barfleld had been
working for Blackwell for some time
and his employer bad treated him
very kindly. Arangements had evi?
dently been made for the elopement
previous to Barfleld'* arrival on the
scene Tuesday night, for Mrs. Black
well left the house secretly and it was
found afterwards that she had her
suit case already packed to take with
her. Tin- two arrived In Bumter early
Wedne*ady morning, the horse half
dead with fatigue from his hard drive
through the country. From here, the
two stated tiny were going to
Columbia, bul whether they did or not
is not Kn<?wn.
Thursday Mr. Xewsom received a
note, unsigned, telling him that he
would Und his horse and buggy at
Mr, Boyle'* stables, where the two
gentlemen from Blshopville secured
them this morning. Previously, they
had made attempts to secure Informa?
tion concerning the vehicle and horse
\\ ithoul results,
Mr, Blaekyell is reported to n
respected citizen of his community,
and it was stated thai In would make
no attempt to lr> to Induce his wife

the present system, when all trains
come in and go mit on the third track.
Besides the change* in the tracks
there will he other changes instituted
in the near future. The coal chute
will be moved from its present loca?

This will be a great improvement

DEATH TO MOSQUITOES.
Forty-Six Drip Fans Installed and All
Intakes and Ditches Disinfected.
Health Officer E. I. Reardon has
done something this week. He has
during the week installed 46 drip cans
in traps and it looks as if there will
be no more breeding of mosquitoes in
these places for quite a while to come.
Besides this, however, he has, in his
war on flies and mosquitoes, poured
oil and disinfec tants in all of the in?
takes and the ditches and hole*
which might prove breeding place*
for those pests.
A further step which will be taken
during the next week and one which
will be watched with interest as a
preventative measure against disease
is the distribution ??f insect powder
among the Stahles to kill the germs
from which the die* and other in?
sects breed. Five hundred pounds of
this powder has heen secured for this
purpose ami. it' the experiment prove*
its usefulness, it will he distributed
about the city to he used in all stables
to kill out the die* which breed in
When the public realizes the fact
that mosquitoes and dies cause the
majority of the diseases in this city
they should be willing to cooperate
with the health officer and the board
of health in their fight against these
pests. A careful watching of the home
premises to see that there are no
breeding place* f??r mosquitoes, and
the cleaning of stables every week
will do more than the hoard of health
can to exterminate the pests.
