Market t'iitri For Oejim
Farmers have been complaining
for some time about the condition
of affairs under which they bring
tneir butter to market anil find them
selves so glutted that they cannot
sell their butter, and in many in
stances folks have been foiced to
carry their pioduct back home. It
has been found that in communities
where a market Is offered for rraem,
all this trouble is lenioved. JenFon
Brothers have established an outlet
for cream, it being shij:pcil to out
of town creameries which in turn
make butter out of it. They are now
advertising to buy t renin fiom far
mers, at their ice cieam plant on
the Katy right of way.

Keeping Eggs Fresh For Winter
Durine this season nf the venr
when eggs may be had at reasonable
prices, is the time to preserve thera
as against this roming winter when
they will sell for three or four times
as much as at present. It has been
found that eggs laid in April, May or
early June preserve the best, and
properly cared for, will keep fresh
for a year's time. The water-glass

Siilettltute Presort tiv Plan
When water-glass can not be oh.
talned, the following method of pre
serving eggs may be usgd In Its
stead. Many consider this method
entirely satisfactory although there
are instances where eggs so preserv.
ed have tasted of lime.
Dissolve 2 or 3 pounds of un.
slacked lime In five gallons of water
that has been boiled and cooled, and
allow the mixture to stand until the
lime settles and the liquid Is clear.
Place clean, fresh eggs in a cloan
earthenware crock or jar and pour
the clear ltmewater into the vessel
until the eggs are covered. At least
two Inches of the solution should
cover the top layer of eggs. Some
times a pound of salt Is used with the
lime, but experience has shown that
in general the lime without the salt
Is more satisfactory.
Prairie View's Fie Supper
On the night of May 4, the Boys'
and Girls' Agricultural Club of the
Prairie View school gave a pie sup
per. Mrs. Posey, our never.tlrlng
supervisor, suggested that we decor,
ate the house in club colors, so we did
it. Our colors are red and white.
We also used the red and white four

The club was called to order by
the vice president, Arley Washer d
he made the following remarks to
the audience in order that all wonld
know the purpose of the pie sapper:
"We have come together for the pur
pose of trying to raise money to
help defray expenses to the club rally
which will be held In Durant on May
14, also to buy jars for the Caaalac
Club girls to exhibit their product
at the Club Fair next fall, to bur ex
hibit crates for the Pig and Poultry
Club members, to buy a pennant and
to frame the Club charter."
After the crowd had gathered to
gether, the Club sang their Clafc
song and gave their Club yell; tstti
Messrs. Thomas and Jamerson soleV
the pies. And we want to say right:
here that If any other Club member
ln Bryan county wants pies sold, that
the goods. We realized $12.85 froa
they had better call on these men to
sell them, for they surely can deliver
the sale of the pics, and owing to too
scarcity or money, we think that wo'
did fine, and thank all who took
Misses Bute and Fontaine caaao
down from Durant and we belief
that they had a good time from too
number uf pies that they ate.
Miss Rule explained the purpose
of the Club rally and we are gotac
to help her make the rally a howllag
The girls of the Club have most of
their sewing finished. They won
their aprons and caps at the pie stro

have their compositions completed
and the Pig Club boys haVe their re
ports up to date.
