Rausch are Hosts at a Delightful Affair. CONNOISSEURS DEFIN ED, BUT YET MYSTERY Toastmaster Piguet Draws Out Expressions of Learn ing and Good Will. 'When we speak'of connoisseurs we are apt to be reminded of art sad sculpture, but there ie another lind of art that perhaps appeals to the eaverage 4ndividual with greater -force than all the other arts com bined. This is the art of cooking. "The ouinary profleiency that mal the humna heart mellow and satia fled and receptive to all the 'infu ences of good comradeshlp and that aids the sipped wine in inducing the tongue to say the clever. things the mind invents in the fullness of the soul, and eauses the outfdowing of felicitations that make mortals feel like one big family-a pedigreed family with a taint of the feasts of Trlrmalchio and the teachings of Epicurnes. Well, anyhow the Connoisseurs gave a banquet at Tony Gabriel's last Saturday evening and Gabe caught the spirit of the whole thing and did himself proud by serving the best prepared dinner that his ever made a gathering happy tin Covinton, and. after the wine glasses bad been ~l-led and refiled and Toastmaster Pf.ruet had ethausted his resourie a in ,bring eng out expressions of good will and learning and happy repartee, Gabe gave an exhibition of his a0b'ity as a 'warbler and earned the 'hearty ap plause of al 'Hs aesistant, Jim l.ussan, sang some excellent rag-time soag. a ia cabaret, there weeas a Vic trola concert of high clas recorde through the ýoutesy of ,Mr. Rauseoh together with piano performances -by Prof. Alexander that were very en joyable. The banquet as a most delightful affair and the ester-dinner talks brougtht whdiesome food for thought. The banquet of the Connoi.seeuo was an affair atrtbatable to the generous kindneme of J. P. Rauech and E. j. Domergue. We have spoken of ron noisseurs of art and copnolseure of cookery, but we have said nothing of conndosseurs of eeetions. 'In -fact, we haven't thought this neceary, because the public wduldn't under stand; but for the benefit of these present we can not refrain from the remark that there is esuch a thiig connoisseurs of elections and that future banquets of the Connoisseurse will surely bring to mind that there is also each a thing as connoisseurs of reoiprocity.

The circumstances surrondting the death of Mr. An-' toine Mutti makes the aition doubly sad. He had :complained lately of not feeling wwel; and It had heen arranged for him to Spend1 a while with the fameI at A&'bta Springs.

JULIA O'BERRY TELLS OF HER CANNING CLUB How She Did the Work that Won the Prize add -Enti tled Her Story to Pub lication in Farmer. I joined the Canning Club so I eould learn to grow and can vege tables in the home. My garden was 66x66 teat, it therefore contained 446 square feet. The .location was a well drain ed sandy loam soil, with a clay sub soil. I selected this kind of soil be cause a soil that is not wel dr'ined is stiff anll wet, and will not grow a good crop. Plants that are in a well drained soil will resist doutil better than one that is not properly drain ed. A soil with a clay subsoil will also help the plant in dry weather by tholding moisture. I had Ly plot plowed in February att-a turn plow. After having it ,Wi ;broken up I app ail the fer.ii iser by scattering one ton of barn , *tt anure br over the plot. '~ scatteri $ fertilizer over -the groudd I XIedt . wit, the roil ty running a dsk. harroi both ways over the plot. "I practicea level cut tiva.tion, as peaked ridges dry out top quickly. I did not have any deep plowing .fter setting the plants. I used only SDiamond shovel and side harrows to keep a dry mulch ¢n the surface. I planted my seed 1i open ground on February 19th and 22. I trans planted them on April 7th .:nd bth, settrig them in the rows S t-2;,: feet. I pruned the bushes leaving from three to five stems to eaan. I used stakes for supports, putting up from two to three-stakes to eah. The only insect that attacke: my. garden. was a large green, worm, rwhich I killed by band. The only disease that attacked thenm was the "tomato wilt." I gathered all the plants affected and burned them, be lag very careful not to scatter any of the soil on their roots, and also not to handle any of the other bush es. I lest about ten .plauth with the wilt. I did not grow any other ,vegetable on my plot but tomaitoes, as I was a firet year gir!. I did my own canning at hcme on our home canner. I used No. 2 ueas for containers. I did not at tend but one club- meetiru, .which wae held In Covington July 25th and '2th. We had a anice time while there, and also heard Nome very in struetf leetures given cby agents a-. oar 'arm Demonstrator, and othere.

And when I had a tenth of an acre of Just my own to work and can the tomatoes I felt very proud to see them growing, knowing they were my own. I have used several recipes for tomatoes; among them were recipes for green tomato pickles., tomato puree and to mato catsup, and tomato paste.: I gathered 1,732 pounds of tome. toes from my pot. Used 78 pounds in the 'home. Sold 278 pounds fresh, and canned 00 No. 2-cans tomatetm, 40 cans t to puree, 7 jars green tomato pickes, 19 bottles tomato catsup, and 1 jar tomatoes. My ex pensee were $23.33. The estimated value of.produ s were 464.31. ' My net profit was $40.97.-. The club work has .helped me in several different ways.
