. Household Department. -
As president Cleveland and Gov.
Lord have duly proclaimed, Thanks
giving '"sfc observed. The men
folks will, "f course, recognize and
wrry out the Injunctions to observe
the day and duly abstain from work,
while the housekeepers will not be
expected to perform more than double
the usual amount of labor. The peo
ple who us .ally do the praying will
probably look after our -spiritual wel
fare, so we mothers and cooks will be
permitted to devote ourselves to the
"enjoyment of hospitality and
strengthening of family ties." That
means turkey, mince pies, plum pud
dings, and solid work, for ten hours.
But that's what makes Thanksgiving,
so we must conform to the time-
Sow there is a brighter side to this,
and that is really the side we should
look upon at all times. The grow er
cannot have a real Thanksgiving. It
would be a physical impossibility.
So let us take It up iu the right spirit,
and lend a smile to the rest of the
world. But to lend a smile often
takes something more substantial,
and a Thanksgiving dinner is -one of
the best substantial on earth.
For a century the two birds most
honored by our country have been
the American eagle and the unpre
tentious barnyard turkey. The
former has given our -fair land the
most glory, but for the greatest
amount of solid comfort afforded its
citizens the proud barnyarder takes
the palm, and after all comfort and a
square meal make a very acceptable
substitute for vain glory.
What shall I do to make the great
mtloual day a source of comfort, hos
pitality and Thanksgiving? This is
a question that nearly every house
keeper must answer for herself ac
cording to her ability and the needs
of her surroundings. lief skill in
performing this great task to the
best possible advantage, and make
the most of what is In sight, forms a
sure Index to the amount of happi
ness In every woman's home, and
every mother of us should use all the
talents God has bestowed upon us to
make our respective homes a little
family heaven for the day.
The late autumn leaves and berries
lend themselves beautifully to the
festive occasions of Thanksgiving
dinner parties. The handsome foliage
and red berries of the native laurel
are very decorative by themselves, as
also are the brilliant scarlet berries
of tlit sweot briar. These Intertwined
with the wax berries, or snowdrop,
make a pleasing contrast. Any of
the above are easily fashioned about
the mantels and over pictures, and as
well provide great bouquets, set in
large jars or jugs, about the living
rooms and hall.
Nothing can be more appropriate for
Thanksgiving dinner table than a cen
terpiece of luscious fruits of autumn,
beautiful clusters of rich purple
grapes luscious pears and spicy apples,
are all one could desire to tickle the
after dinner palate. If the table be a
very long one, place a small vase of
chrysanthemums at cither end, or
if these are not obtainable, make use
of the lovely berries and foliage above
meutioned, 01 yes, and for the chil
dren's sakes I do not forget; the jack
o'lantern pumpkin lights up a dark
corner wonderfully. Sophia.
Hints on Pies.
For shortening one may use half
butter and half lard, or all of either,
orcottolfinejbutln no case use beef
or mutton suet, as when the crust Is
cold It will be very hard. If butter
is used, less salt Is required; other
wise add to the flour 1 tcaspoonful of
Pie crust may be kept several days
by packing closely in a bowl or cup,
covering nnd placing In a cool place
All pies are much better fresh, and
custard, cream, or in fact, any one
crust pie, should be used the day It Is
baked, or thecrust will be soaked,
and a water "logged" pie Is an abomi
nation. In trimming the edges of the crust
always balance the tin on your left
hand and then In cutting the lower
crust Incline the handle of the knife
towards the under side of the tin, and
for the upper one slant the knife so
thcblade will overhang the top of the
pie. In that way your upper crust Is
narrower than the under, just a trifle,
which is a help when you fix the edge.
If your fruit pies run over in the
oven, place a saucer on the stove
hearth, take your pie from the oven,
and pour some of the juice out at the
place where it boils over. Ucturn pie
to the oven, and there Is usually no
more trouble. When done, open the
top and pour In the juice from the
Use a knife, the end of the blade of
whrch Is round, for making the fern
leaf on the top crust.
If you have not quite enough crust
for tho top, and your apples are of a
sort that cook quickly, you can cut
your crusts in strips and lay across.
If you've more crust than you need,
and do not care to save it for a cust
ard pie, make the children a little
"saucer pie" of the remainber, and let
them have It for their dinner. You
surely -have not forgotten how good
they used to taste when you were a
child. Or are you so very old? .
Bake your pies a pretty golden
brown thaUhade which Is so appetiz
ing in all cookery. Most people dis
like "pale" pies, and they certainly
remind one of what the old lady said
about her tea, which, she declared
Pies with an upper crust require
longer time and a hotter fire than
Berry pies need no flavoring, but
rhubard pies are improved by the ad
dition of a few drops of lemon essence.
The crust for custard, cream and
pumpkin pies should have more flour
rolled into it than if for fruit pies.
An excellent variation of plain cus
tard pie Is to sprinkle over itfa little
dessicated cocoanut before It finishes
baking. And pumpkin pies are nice
with a meringue as for lemon pies.
