A Meal Hot and Savory, Easy to C'ook and Serie, Good, Nourishtin., , Food-Saving - That's the One-Dish D)inner- Three Ways. "What shall we have for dinner" --the daily question that never grows old. Well, you want a good, satisfying meal which the whole faln ily will enjoy. It must be cheap and easy to cook and must supply what your bodies need to help you ;row, and to help you work or play and keep warm. And, if the spirit of war sacrifice, albides in your house hold, the meal should reflect your food saving efforts. People of all nations have used combinations of foods cooked togeth er in, one dish. Perhaps-you can re member such dinners in your grand ,mother's home. Why not renew the custom and serve your family with a nutritious one-dish dinner occasion ally, for variety at least? For such a dinner you might serve a fish chowder. Here it is, a dinner in one dish, sure enough. Thip one, and the others that follow, makes enough for five persons: Fish Chowller. 1 1-2 pounds fresh (cod, haddock, etc. V or 3-4 lb. salt or dried fish. 9 ,potatoes. peeled and cut in small pieces. 1 onion, sliced. 2 cup's car rots, -cut in pieces. 1-4 Ib. salt pork. 3 cups milk. .1-8 teaspoon pepper. 3 taJblespoons flour. Cut pork in small pieces and fry with chopped onion for 5 minutes. Put pork, onions, carrots and pota toes in kettle and cover with -boil ing water. Cook until vegetalbles are tender. Mix 3 tablespoons of flour with 1-2 cup of the cold milk and stir in the liquid in the pot to thick en it. Add the rest of the milk and the fish, which has been removed from bhone and cut in small pieces. Cook until the fish is tender--about 10 minutes. Jf salt fish is used soak first. Serve hot. This one dish makes a satisfying meal kerved with crisp crackers or corn dodgers with stewed fruit of jam for the "something sweet" you like with your meals. Now that meat is so high -priced: you like to make a small amount go as far as possible. A meat stew can be made very appetizing and with proper care in the selection of the ingredients to combine with the meat you may make another one-dish meal. A Hot Pot of Mutton and Barley. An English stew that is especially good. 1 pound mutton. 1-2 cup, pear!ed barley. 1 tablespoon salt. 4 po tatoes. 3 onions. Celery tops or other seasoning herbs. Cut the mutton in small pieces and 'brown with the onion in fat cut from meat. This will help make the meat tender and improves the flavor. Pour this into a covered saucepan. Add 2 quarts of water and the barley. Simmer for 1 1-2 hours. Then add the potatoes -cut in quarters, season ing herbs and seasoning, and cook 1-2 'hour longer. This is also good served as a shep herd's ,pie with mashed -potatoes lin ing the dish and piled on top for a crust. The stew is better If thick ened with a little flour in this case before adding to the mashed potato crust. Or your one-dish meal might be of dried peas or beans instead of meat or ilsh combined with other vegetables. Here is a hearty dish made from split peas. Many kinds of dried peas or beans could 'be used in the same way. Split Peas, Rice and Tomatoes. 1 1-2 cups rice. 1 pint 1plit 'eas. 6 onions. 1 tablespoon salt. 1-4 teaspoon pepper. 2 cups tomato (fresh or canned). Soak pets over night in 2 quarts of water. Cook until tender in water in which they are soaked. Add rice, onions, tomatoes, and seasonings, and cook 20 minutes. Such meals are a help to the busy housewife on especially Ibusy days, as they are easy to prepare and make but few dishes to wash. With bread and butter and jam, perhaps, or stewed fruit, any one of them makes a well-chosen nutritious meal. If there are children in the family give each one a glass of milk be3ides. Such a meal will satisfy the body's needs as well as a more elaborate one. COTTAGE CHEESE SALAD). Nutritious salad makes a good dish for a home luncheon. A-, they are rich in protein, cheese salads take the place of cold me4t dishes. The following is an inexpensive, nu tritious cottage cheese salad: - Mix thoroughly one ,pound of cheese, one and one-half talblespoons of cream, one tablespoon of'chopped parsley, and salt to taste. First, fill a rectangular tin mold with cold water to chill and wet the surface. After removing, the water, line the bottom of the mold with waxed pap er; then pack*the cheese in three layers, putting two or three parallel strips of pimiento, lettuce leaf, or chopped nuts, between layers. Cov er with waxed paper and set in a cool place until ready to serve; then run a knife around the sides and in vert the mold. Cut in slices and serve on lettuce leaves with French dressing and wafers. Minced olives may be used instead of the parsley, and chopped nuts also may be added. FI'VE WAYS TO FOOD V.ARI.EAY. We must have food to grow. to keep ,warm, and to work. Our food must be nutritious in that it does a:i these things. It is also important that it should taste good. It will not only be better relished, but it will be better utilized by the body if it does. Food will Ibe more healthful, more palatable, and more nutritious if it is varied. Variety may be se cured iby selecting for the daily som. thing from each of the following fi're groups of food: (1) Fruits and vegetables; (2) Milk, meat, eggs. cheese, fish, peas, beans, and nuts; (3) Cereals; (4) Sweets;. (5) Fats. CHIGHESTER S PlILL DIAMOND GRAND LADoIES I IOND BND PZLLS in RED andA G.oD metallic Jae.s, sealed with lu2(1 Ribbon.

Foley, the advertising expert, in an address before the Wal nut Street Philadelphia Business As sociation last week, sounded a note of warning regarding the danger to týhe business Interests of the country which is lbound to come if a wrong impresion -be obtained of the talk regarding thrift, whiec is now sweep ing the land. Aliready some of the ag The new year will bring its new banking problems and further tests of banking strength. To meet each new demand and to bring to our custom ers service adequate to the unusual times is the constant effort of this bank. . . COVINGTON BANK & TRUST COMPANY (ST. TAMMANY'S BIG BANK) ., Resources over $900,000.00. Shortage In Fuel Will make it more diffcult for manufacturers to fill the orders of their customers. Therefore it is a wisq policy to buy goods now. No man who need anything in the clothing line should hesitate to make his purchases im mediately. He will save money by it, and may prevent his having to do without something he will badly need. RANK AT E CE ( GENTS FURNISHINGS COVINGTON, LA. mm+ ill effdets of indiscriminate thrift talk are being felt, and business men have awalkened to the necessity of counteracting the injury felt in va rious lines of trade. "There are two things all of us want to do," said Foley, " we want to get the Germans running and we want to keep 'business running. "We want to make the world safe for democracy, 'but we want to keep democracy in. busines3. Don't Hunt For a Panic. "If we take all the fool advice printed by some amateur economists who suddenly have found themselves in the limelight we would in a year 'or so have a panic compared to 'which that of 1907 'would be as a slight chill compared to an epil!ptic fit. " "We do not want financial epi lepsy, and it is up to every business man and every wage earner in this country to do his bit not only to win the war, but to keep this coun try as nearly normalized as possible in 'business so that when the war ends we will be in a position to do the geoat work which America will be called upon to do In rebuilding and philanthrophy. "If any of the normal function ings of business in this country are tied down,, paralyzed or otherwise vitiated we shall face greater prdb lems in the future than we do in the present. Economy Talk Not Understood. "Now, we must all learn some les son of thrift, Intcluding our govern ment, Ibut let us do it the right way. There is some room for difference of opinion as to 'what constitutes wise economy, and there is danger that this talk of economy may not be understood and may resul' in a danger quite as great as that which would come from wasteful living. "Governments do not make wealth. Governments may conscript it and even then in demecracles only so far as the 'public permits, for gov ernment, after all, is not master, ,but servant, elected ,by you and me and the others of the hundred million. "The basis of all wealth in the history 'of the w'orl is human effort -human effort in pired by an Al mighty Father and weo*king with ma terials furnished by him. "This is to be a time of supreme effort in America. The government for itself and its allies will call for from $9,000,000,000 to $15,000, 000,000 worth of extra human effort in America---all of it here. In re turn for this actual created wealth of 'brain and muscle there will be paid the visible wealth-that is, cer tilicates which prove that the ser vice has been rendered. This we call money. IMoney is not real 'wealth any more than your batik book is. It is the ,proof of wealth. But as the effort has, been rendered this wealth cannot be destroyed, even though a large part of the products of the effort is destroyed or used up, such as boats, munitions, foodstuffs. steel, iron ore, coal, cotton. Our Wealth Is Not Destroyed. "Now, as all this extra effort has gained so much extra wealth, what becomes of the wealth? "Is it burned up-destroyed'? "The government taes some tpt it .aLk In the ibrm of tues. But not to destroy it-to pass it on again for more human effort, human service. "All the working people get more work and higher pay for that work. Railroads transport more goods and need more hellp. Soldiers use up materials and exercise their efforts in a foreign field, and hence the civilian must do more rwork, must do the normal work that soldiers for merly did and in addition supply them with the materials which they use up, and for all of this they will be well paid. "Men who never worked before literally have work thrust upon them. Some are even conscripted to work. "Women are working and earning who a year ago were idle richor idle poor, for there are some of that kind too. All -this means more money-money in circulation.,. Dead Dollar Like A Dead ieoa. "A dead dollar is not much better than a dead lion, and we all 'know that a live dog is better than a dead lion. So, too, a live nickel that keeps moving and making a lot of people that muh 'better off is better than a dead dollar buried in a tin can or hidden in an old ocdk. I don't believe much in negative sav ing. I don't believe much in nega tive economy. "England began its plan of politi cal economy on the negative basis of 'stop spending.' It didn't work. And now England, after all Its trouble, sees stock and bond prices going up again-people spending and making more than ever-not wastefully, ,btt sensibly. "Yet a fallacy of this 'kind crept into a Liberty loan advertisement in the last campaign. The advertise ment said that in order to buy Lib erty bonds some of us would have to wear old clothes, go 'without our lunch and talke only a 'bite and run old cars and buy no new ones. Where False Economy Will Lead Us. "Now, any man, to begin with, *who can afford to run an old auto modbile can certainly afford to buy a IAberty bond. I -put it to the ilb erty Loan -Committee that the plan they suggested was saving at the spigot, but letting out at the bung hole. "If readers of newspapers were to decide not to purchase automobiles or cldthes or to support restaurants or to do any of the normal things they have been doing what about the hundreds of thousands of people 'who gain their livi@hood throughi these various lines? How could they subscribe to 'IAberty loans? What about the taxes that the government expects to collect from them if they have no money? There should be no etravaglance, Ibut people should adhere to normal methods of living in order to keep business going and to make money and to pay money to the government. "It any messages go to the Kaiser' we don't want them to be messages that America is afraid; that America is running away from its normal 'usiness life and is hiding its money. "Some of us are fighting, all of us are working and every one of us willing. We must co-operate. That is the greatest lesson we are learn 'ag. Business is learning it. Wall street is coe.omrating with the gov ernmeat, and I have hope that even Congress may some day see that co operative measures rather than punl thie measures will bring victory qui kest. "You have good newspapers In Philadelphia. Yell and let the peo ple know What you have. Let them iknow -that they are not burning the money when they spend it, but they are passing it along." Country 'publishers will do well to think on this problem and to arouse in their merchants and other beti ness men a desire lodking to the real education of-t'he people. Led by Mr. Norman Talcott, editor of Our Town, of Greenwich, Conn., the business men of Greenwich have started an impressive and compre hensive campaign looking to the en lightenment of the people. The Bu reau of Business Affairs has been formed, such a bureau as could be formed in any town. The newspa pers have been extensively 'used In an advertising campaign, and pla cards have,been posted in conspicu ous iplaces. The crux of the economy situs tion is brought to public attention in a full page advertisement Whichh appears in Our Town and which runs as follows: "What your government asks of you. - "Please get the record stra.ght. "The Greenwich Bureau of Busi ness Affairs, as a member of the United States Chamber of Commerce, has been officially appointed Iby the United States food administration its agent in Greenwich in charge of dis play signs for the all important mat ter for the conservation of seed. 'We are happy to note the prompt and strenuous efforts made to eog serve food and supplies, and we con gratulate the people of Greenwich on their loyal work in thus complying ,with the request of the government. But please correct a prevailing error. "Your government asks you to save food, coal and all supplies which are needed to support our fighting men and those of our allies. WHILEl YOU ARIE URGED TO USE W1HAT YOU NEED, BUT DO NOT WASTE) YOU AVE NOT ,ASKED TO HOARD YOUR MONEY. "Money hoarded brings no benefit to yourself of your country. Food wasted is forever gone, but money spent does not perish. It is made to circulate, and its circulation helps every one whom it touches. It will keep circulating in this country-ft can hardly be spent outside-and come back to you again. "-BY SPENDINO YOUR MONEY YOU WILL KEEP 'PROSPERITY AND GOOD CHEER ALIVE! "Thus save supplies, but spend your money. Spend for what you need. Spend wisely and all will be benefitted. "BUREAU OF BUSINESS AFFAIRS" Every editor in the country should make it his business to keep up the spirit of the people and to eause them to realize what undue economy will lead to, particularly economy spracticed to an absurd degree by the middle classes, wvich form the real purchasing power of the nation. Boost for your town, boost for your ,business and boost for the other fel olw's business. Idiotic expenditure always is bad for the nation, but Ialse economy may have a much worse effect. Thrift does not nae- - sarily mean toarding money.
