AN ARMY BREAD A WOMAN BAKES Rew Recipe Tested by Gommis sory Department. WILL KEEP INDEFINITELY IF DRY CI aim Made For Bread Baked From Formula Devised by Wife of Adiron dack Guido—Offiocr3 Believe It Will Prove of Greatest Value to tho United Ctatos Army, Mrs. Jacob AVotrnnre, wife of a guide Ju thi Adirondack*, IK tho inventor of a now bread recipe which army ollicers of the commissary department at Washington believe will prove of the greatest. Importance to the United States army. The bread, called "hard bread for campers' use," appears to last Indefinitely when baked according to Mrs. Wetmore'y iiustriKlions and likewise lia.s the advantage of being as healthful, crlap and tasteful as the French breads. Brigadier General Henry O. Sharpe, oominlssary general of the army, has had several tests made at Fort Itlley and In California. With tho added In genuity of tho army bakers the finish ed products, which are being forward ed to the war department, give prom ise that the United States army will Boon be on an equal footing with for eign armies so far as this important ration is concerned. Lighter tho Batter Gets tho Bettor. Karlv last November Brigadier Gen eral Sharpe's attention was first brought to Airs. Wetmore's recipe. It was forwarded by P. L. Hudson of New York. Hero Is the recipe: "Walce a sponge about or 4 o'clock In the afternoon by adding a cake of yeast foam (which has previously been softened in a little water) to a batter made of ai tablespoonful of mashed po tato and a pint of water in which tho potato nas been boiled, with .sufficient good bread llour stirred in so that the bailer wiii crop from the spoon, not run as liquid. Let this rise In a warm place at'tor giving it a good beating until about or 10 o'clock at Hlght (the lighter it gets the better), then add a pint of lukewarm water, a teaspoonful of salt, a tablespoonful of sugar ami a bit: of lard tho size of a hickory uut, though tho bread will be ax good perhaps if this is omitted. Cut Into 8quares Like Cookies. "If a bread mixer is used, put all these ingredients into it and add three quarts of llour, measured before sift ing, first deducting therefrom the amount used in making the sponge in the afternoon mix or, if a mixer is uot used, knead with the hands until When poked with the finger tip it seems elastic and does not stick to the finger. Cover and let rise over night In a warm place (75 degrees), and in the morning turn out on a board and pound with the back of un ax for twenty minutes, working in all the flour you possibly can. Then roll out about an inch thick with a rolling pin and cut Into squares of about two Inches, place on a greased baking sheet, such as cookies are baked on, and let rise until nearly twice their height, or until very light. "Bake about half an hour In a mod erately hot oven and then leave In a warming oven or about the stove somewhero to dry out thoroughly for a day or two. Keep In a dry place, and when wanted to use roll one over ouee or twice in cold water, drain carefully from one corner, place on a plate and in a-short time it will puff up much larger and seem like freshly baked bread. This bread will keep in definitely if kept perfectly dry." PERIL IN FUDGE. Makes Girls Shapeless Roily Polies, Says Food Expert Wiley. Dr. Wiley, who is United States pure food commissioner and the man who knows more about food than any body else, in a discourse on food, what to eat and what not to eat, said: "Fudge is harmful. It makes girls fat owing to its excess of carbon hy drates. which produce adipose tissue. College girls and high school girls are roundi roily poly creatures Instead of the slender maids that the country used to know before the fudge craze seised the nation. Fudge has become a national feminine habit Not only do the college girls and the high school girls eat fudge, but It Is made In vast quantities in the country where girls cannot buy candy except of the worst grades. I might almost say that fudge Is becoming a national menace. Fam- Hies everywhere are fudge ridden." New Breath Id Holding Record. a Philadelphia swimming pool.
