Chicago. , ; Experienced Cook Needs Few Recipes It is not multiplicity of receipts that gives one cook the advantage over those who have but few at their command, but the ability to utilize a few very good and reliable formulas in such manner as to present them in a variety of forms so dissimilar they are not recognized under different names. We may take, for example, the chou paste (cream puff paste), or croquette mixtures. ' By chancing shape, filling, eeasoxiings or method of cooking, these mixtures will make a very different va riety of dishes. i ' ' CHOU PASTE. " Put half a pint of cold water In a Faucepan with two ounces of butter. Have ready four ounces of sifted flour, and as soon as the water comes to a boil throw in the flour and beg-in to stir rapidly. Continue to stir vigorously un till the paste is perfectly smooth and forms into a ball, leaving the sides of the saucepan clear. Remove from the lire, turn into a bowl and beat far a few minutes, then stand away to cool. When perfectly cool put into the mix ture four esrss. unbeaten.- adding one at a. time and leating vigorously afier each one is added. After adding the last egg beat the batter for at least 15 minutes, until it is smooth and soft, but not thin. This can be used at once, or kept for eeveral days. DUCHESS CONSOMME. Butter a small square or oblong bak ing tin and cover with thin layer of the chou paste. Hake 'In a quick oven for six or eight minute then dot with force meat laid in small lumps some distance apart, so you Can cut the paste into 12 blocks of equal size, each one being cov ered with the forcemeat. Put these in the tureen or soup plates and pour hot consomme over them and serve. BALL. FRITTERS. Add a tnblespoofiful of sugar to the water and butter for the cream puff or chou paste mixture and when the batter Is) cold drop by small spoonfuls into deep, liot fat and fry a nice brown. . These are also called queen fritters. CREAM PUFFS. When your chou paste is ready to use, olrop it, by the teaspoonful onto well buttered baking tins, leaving two-inch cpace between the puffs. Have an oven with a stronger heat at bottom than the top, as the pun's must raise quickly and e very light before browning on top. Do not have the oven too hot, as the puffs will scorch easily. Bake for 20 minutes, or until they are perfectly light to the touch. When cold make an open ing at one side of each puff and till with the following: Half a pint of milk, four eggs, one tablespoonful cf corn starch, four tablespoonfuls of sugar and a tea fspoonful of vanila. Heat the milk to scalding point in a double boiler, beat the eggs and sugar together until light, add the cornstarch, beat again: pour the iiot milk over the mixture and then re turn to the double boiler. Stir and cook until quite thick. Remove from the fire. Add the vanila and stand away to cool before filling the puffs. SOUTHERN CREAM CAKES. Add a teaspoonful of sugar and a lit tle vanila to the cream puff batter, finish End bake in same way. using but a tea spoonful of the mixture for each cake or puff.

COFFEE OH CHOCOLATE ECLAIRS. Put into a saucepan a half pint of milk with tivo ounces of butter. Set over the fire and stir with a wooden pad dle. When it boils, add a. quarter of a pound of flour that has been sifted be fore weighing, and stir rapidly until the paste is smooth and leaves the side of the saucepan. Remove from the fire Add four unbeaten eggs, one at a time, as for cream puff a Put a small tube in a pastry bag, till the bag: partially with the batter and press out in a buttered baking tin three inches in length, .haying one end larger than the other. Bake same as cream puffs. When cold open the eclairs at the side and fill with cream. i CREAM FOR ECLAIRS. - Put two tablespoonfuls of flour In a bowl and rub -to a smooth paste with a little milk. . Then stir into this a pint of scalded milk. Beat three eggs light with six ounces of sugar. Add the milk and flour to this, return to the fire and cook five minutes. Add a teaspoonful of butter and quarter of a teaspoonful of salt. . When cool flavor with vanilla, lemon or almond. ICING FOR ECLAIRS. Put two cupfuls of granulated sugar in a saucepan with one cupful of water, stir until the sugar dissolves; then boil until a soft ball can be formed by drop ping the syrup into cold water. Turn out on an oiled platter or marble slab. Let it cool about ten minutes. Put an ounce of coffee in a saucepan with a cupful of cold water and boil until re duced to about two . tablespoonfuls. Strain through a cloth, and let cool. Work the syrup with an oiled wooden paddle or spoon as rapidly as possible, until it begins to whiten. Add coffee essence, a little at a time, mixing in rapidly until the fondant gets stiff. Roll the fondant up quickly and put on a plate, cover with a damp cloth and set in a cool place for half an hour. When ready to use place the fondant in a saucepan over hot water, and stir slow ly until lukewarm, adding, in the mean time, a few drops of cold water. Dip the eclairs into this, one at a time, cov ering the top with the icing. Melted chocoiate may be used in the fondant instead of the coffee extract. ALMOND CHOTJ CAKES. TTse the formula for cream puffs or eclairs, adding a good pinch ;of ground mace and grated rind of a lemon. Drop the batter on the buttered tins by large teaspoonfuls, sprinkle thickly with chopped almonds and crushed loaf or coarse granulated sugar. Brush with beaten egg and bake in a good oven un til crisp. When cold fill with straw berries, raspberry or apricot jam. CHICKEN CUTLETS BAKED. Take a chicken .. weighing- three pounds, prepare it as for roasting, put it into a saucepan, cover with boiling water. Add an onion, a few cloves, a few sprigs of parsley and thyme, and cook until the meat is tender. Then re move the skin, gristle, fat and bones. Return the skin and bones to the liquor in the saucepan. Chop the meat very fine. Season well with salt and pepper, add a little onion juice, grated nutaieg and minced parsley. i For each pint of meat make a sauce of half a pint of milk or cream, two level tablespoonfuls of butter and four of flour. Heat the milk in a double boiler. Rub the butter and flour to gether to a smooth paste, and add to the hot milk. Stir and cook until thick. Then add the yolks of two eggs. Mix well .and add the meat and more sea soning if necessary, turn out to cool, then form into cutlet shapes. Place in buttered pans and bake in a quick oven. Put a small bone or piece of macaroni in the small end of each cutlet, deco rate each bone with a paper frill, and serve the cutlets arranged around base of mound of green peas with a border of mashed potatoes. This mixture may be used for croquettes and the eggs onitted. Sweetbreads or mushrooms may be used to make the croquettes more dainty. The croquettes are, of course, fried. They may be made into pyramid shape or formed into balls and given some other name. Inquiries Answered. (No attention paid to inquiries not giving name and address of writer, plainly written.) Mrs. T. J. writes: "Will you kindly print some good recipes for a pork cake, loaf cake, pie crust arid a baking pow der biscuit or a soda biscuit, also a fried cake recipe? "I have tried the recipe for the layer cake, and also the sugar cookies, and they were delicious." ' ' i '. POKK CAKE, ' Take half a pound of fat, salt pork, one and a balf cupfuls of sugar, one cup of New Orleans molasses, half a pint of boiling, strong coffee, half a pound of raisins, a level tablespoonful of cinna mon, a teaspoonful of cloves, a tea spoonful of ginger, a teaspoonful of soda, flour to make a batter stiff as a cup cake, three and a half or four cup fuls. Chop the pork very fine, seed the raisins, dissolve the soda in a little hot water, and add to the molasses.

Y. the flour, add the molasses and coffee, then add more flour and beat the batter well. Bake in a moderate oven for one hour. Add half a teaspoonful of salt to the batter. , LOAF CAKE. ' 1 Two cupfuls of sugar and one cupful of butter beaten to a cream; three eggs, the yolks and whites beaten separately; three cupfuls of flour with one tea spoonful of cream of tartar stirred in, yolks of the eggs stirred well with the butter and sugar, then two cupfuls more flour with a teaspoonful of cream of tartar, one cupful of milk, one nut meg grated, one pound of raisins or currants, dredged with some of the flour, a teaspoonful of soda dissolved in a little water and the whites of the eggs folded in the last thing. Bake in a moderate oven. This will make two nice loaves. PIE CRUST. Take a pound of siff-d flour, one pound of butter or on?-third less this quantity if you use vegetable shortening, half a teaspoonful or salt ana a cuptui or ice water. Have all materials cold as possi ble before beerinnine-. Rub and cut the shortening through the flour, to which you have added the salt, leaving out a little of the butter. Use a flexible knife and not the hands. Mix in the water ana roll out in a thin sheet on a well floured board. Cut the remainder of the butter into small pieces and spread over the paste, dredge with flour, roll up. cut into halves, divide these into three parts and roll out and cover as many pie plates. Take the other half and dot with pieces of butter. Dust with flour, fold the sides into the center and roll thin, fold into three layers and cut into three parts; roll out and cover the pies. In this way you get a flaky, more digestible crust. The paste can be made with part butter and part vegetable shortening, using the but ter in the loldmg only. BAKING POWDER BISCUIT. Put one quart of sifted flour into a bowl with a teaspoonful of salt and four level teaspoonfuls of baking powder. Mix well togetner. men auu a large taoiespoonrui of butter or less of vegetable shortening, and mix well into the flour with a spatula or flexible knife. Mix with water or milk into a dough as soft as can be handled. Do not knead the dough, but toss lightly on a floured board, roll out lightly into a sheet a n Inch thick, cut into small round biscuit and bake in a quick oven for 12 or 15 minutes. PRIED CAKES. For plain fried cakes, take one cupful of sugar, one egg. one cupful of milk, butter the size of a walnut, two teaspoonfuls of baking powder, third of a teaspoonful of grated nutmeg and flour enough to make a soft dough. Roll out. cut into small rings and frv in deep, hot fat. WHITE CARAMEL FILLING NO. 1. E. D. writes: Will you kindly tell me how to make a white caramel filling? I have looked in different cook books, but can find only the chocolate caramel fill ing and frosting. Thanking you in ad vance and hoping it will not be asking too much, as I greatly wish to surprise a friend who says her favorite cake - is a caramel cake. I enjoy reading your re cipes very much. This is probably what you have In mind, though it is not perfectly white: Put half a cupful of sugar in a sauce pan with three-fourths of a cupful of cream and a tablespoonil of butter. Boil until it spins a thread, then add four ta blespoonfuls of caramel or burnt sugar and one teaspoonful of v.anila. When cool till and cover the cake with this. CARAMEL FILLING NO. 2. Take one and one-half cupfuls of light brown sugar, one cupful of milk and a scant tablespoonf ul of butter. Flavor with half a teaspoonful of vanila. Put the milk, sugar and butter in A saucepan, set in an other containing boiling water and cook until thick. Take from the tire and set in cold water, beat hard until stiff, then add the vanila. This is darker than the first lilling. Mrs. J. T. writes: For old people whose teeth have long since gone and who can only eat meat finely chopped and fried in patties, will you kindly tell the seasonings and vegetables that could be used to make the dish more appetizing? Any facts re lating to such preparations would be much appreciated. MEAT DIET IN OLD AGE. In old age it is not advisable to give very much meat, and when a disinclina tion is shown for such food it is quite certain that the svstem does not require it. As a rule, old people eat too much meat. Meat juices, hot from a broiled steak or chop, seasoned and served with vegetables, would answer much better and probably be more palatable. How ever, finely minced men t cakes, broiled, may often be relished: these can be sea soned in a variety of ways, a little onion juice, if onions are allowable, celery salt, mace, minced parsley, ginger, nutmeg, lemon juice, thyme, cloves and bay leaf may all be used to vary the taste. Pota toes, tomatoes, peas and celery may be added to the chopped meat, but would be better served as an accompaniment in a sauce, soup or puree. The potatoes can be chopped very fine and cooked in a cream sauce, browning them in the oven. Rice, well cooked, may also be added to or served with the meat cakes. Do not give old people foods that are diffilult to digest and remember those that require mastication, or a thorough chewing by the teeth, will not be in proper condition for stomach or intestinal digestion when the teeth are not present to perform their function. If we can not chew our food we must go back, as near as possible. t first principles. Use fresh, uncooked meat for the meat cakes. Scraped beef sand wiches are sometimes liked. Scrape th? raw. lean beef, season, spread between thin slices of bread and broil or toast over a clear and not too hot a fire. Serve a tart fruit jelly with them.

RASHNESS THE CHARGE George E.Estes of the Southern Pacific May Succeed Him. Bock Island Makes Promotions of Road Men. The next meeting of the National Or der of Railway Telegraphers is likely to be an interesting one, and if present in dications are to be believed there may be trouble among the members of the organization. In the first place, the conduct of M. M. Dolphin, president of the order will almost certainly come up for censure. The telegraphers generally believe that President Dolphin showed poor judg ment in his management of the strike which occurred on the Santa Fe last fall. For instance, he ordered the men to leave their keys without first ascer taining fully the opinions of the opera tors interested. There seems to have been no question that many of the op erators believed they had grievances, but they also think that they should have been accorded more rights in con nection with it than was given them. Another cause for accusing Dolphin of being injudicious is that he ordered the men out on Saturday, thus giving the Santa Fe opportunity to recover partial ly from the effect, over Sunday while the business of the road was slack. This bad direction on the part of Dol phin will probably cost him his position as president of the order. The men on the Santa Fe and those who studied the situation closely at the time ihave de cided that the present head should not be permitted to repeat any blunders that may have occurred, and that there fore a successor should be elected. The man most prominently mentioned as a successor to President Dolphin is George E. Estes, general chairman of the Order of Railway Telegraphers on the Pacific coast, and also the chief spirit in the new United Brotherhood of Railway Employes. The conception of the new order, in effect, the same as that of the American Railway union and the membership already has reach ed 400. Among many of the telegraphers Estes has strong supporters, being as is thought a careful, conservative leader, and one well informed on labor ques tions. However Estes is to meet with much opposition from other labor organ izations and particularly from the Trainmen. Should the new order become a success, it is not likely that Estes will be given a place at the head of the tele graph operators. t M. M. Dolphin, the present head of the telegraphers, at one time lived at Em poria. He is thought to be the same "Mike" Dolphin who worked for 'he Santa Fe as agent and operator during the eighties, being stationed at Turkey Creek and Elmdale during his service with that company. Before becoming president of the telegraphers he prac ticed law. . 1 PREPARING FOB PICNIC. Shop Men Appoint Committees to Prepare For Annual Event. The shop men already have begun talking picnic. Tuesday afternoon the men met in the old tin shop and decided to appoint a committee on preparations for the annual picnic. After the election of George Cooper as chairman and Frank Prtbble as secretary, the commit tee was named as follows: Paint shop, Daniel Lane; coach shop. Frank Kinsey; brass foundry, Archie Baughman; ma chine shop, T. El Wilcox; boiler shop, William Reddy; cabinet shop, Albert WahJ; freight car shed, Charles Cross and Albert Bowlus; blacksmith shop, Patrick O'Brien; east shop, Geo. Cooper; south shop, A. Graham; roundhouse, Frank Thompson; water service, A. Coyne; mill, Edward Bressett. The picnic will probably be held in June, and Atchison has been mentioned as an available place although this will be decided by vote of the men. ROADMASTER TAKES A WALK. Goes One Hundred Miles on Foot "Spotting" Ties. Independence, May 8. Santa Fe Road.-n aster Henry Campbell, of Cherryvale, was In town recently. He was on a tour of inspection of his divi sion, .which extends from Chanute to Cedarvale, and was performing the journey "a-foot." He was "spotting" the bad ties, and will walk over every step of the division. He and Section Foreman Johnson, of this city, walked from here to Bolton in one afternoon. Henry tips the scales at about 225 pounds and is decidedly "fleshy." It will be a long walk for so fat a man. The distance is a good 100 miles. The Santa Fe railway will put in new ties in place of every bad one and there will be a pile of them, too. , NOT CHOSEN YET. President Ripley Says Barr's Success or Will Be Named m June. Chicago, May 8. Concerning the ap pointment of a third vice president to succeed Mr. Barr. now with the Sea board Air Line, President Ripley said: "Although the board will undoubtedly approve of the man I may select, I should not care to announce the selec tion until the board had passed upon it. I am not ready to name the new third vice president nor make the promotions which may become necessary. This is the reason no action was taken at the directors' meeting in New York. The appointments will probably be made at the June meeting." Mr. Ripley stated that it had not been decided to combine the position of third vice president and general manager, and that they would probably be kept separate. Former Shop Man Heard From. Joseph Cramer, a machinist in the south shop, has received a letter from Frank Hunsecker. formerly a helper in the blacksmith shop here. Hunsecker left Topeka about two years ago and went to Porto Rico, where he was made foreman of a bridge gang, doing work for Kemper & Thacher, the same com pany that built the Kaw river bridge here. Hunsecker wrote from Zanes ville. O., where he is working on a bridge, and from where it is expected he will gradually work his way back to Topeka. While in Porto P.ieo Hun- Thanks Peruna For His Rapid Recovery From Catarrh. EX-UNITED STATES MARSHAL MATTHEWS, OF MISSISSIPPI. Hon. S. S. Matthews, ex-United States Marshal, of Mississippi, in a recent letter to The Peruna Medicine Company of Columbus, Ohio, written from Hazelhurat, Miss., says: "!

It is a great satisfaction that I am able to write you that Peruna has in my case done all that you claim, and that I will need no more medicine. " seeker married a native woman, who is now with hial at Zanesville. Met After Twenty-seven Years. Frank Sanderson, of the boiler shop, was agreeably surprised Tuesday to meet Asa Butler, a former chum, whom he had not seen for twenty-seven years. Sanderson and Butler formerly herded cattle together on the plains, but parted when they were still boys. Both men have lived In Topeka for some time but neither knew of the other's where abouts until by explanations they were able to identify one another when they met Tuesday. Rock Island Road Men Advanced. James Carter. Rock Island section foreman, has been advanced to the posi tion of foreman of the work train, and Steve Winchester takes the position of section foreman. These are two merited promotions for two worthy men. Funeral of Engineer Coggins. The funeral of Engineer "Vincent G.

RAILROAD NOTES C. O. Jackson, who is with the passen ger department of the Memphis at Chat tanooga, Tenn., is visiting relatives in Topeka.; H. O. Alexander of the Rock Island freight oftices was in Herington Tues day. C. K. Baseom, district passenger agent for the Rock Island at Wichita, was a visitor Tuesday at the local Hock Island offices. In pursuance of a general policy of ex tending its facilities in Pueblo, the Santa Fe railway will in a short time double its round house accommodations in that city. Brakemen say there is something the matter with the electric line running be tween Leavenworth and Kansas City. All the trackmen have been laid off and ev erything looks dead. The brakemen be lieve the line is to be sod. The late publications of the Santa Fe in the Italian and German languages, treating of the resources along the lines of that road, are being circulated among some of the passenger agents. The pamphlets are for distribution over Eu rope, and are gotten up in a way that will attract much immigration from that country. The Santa Fe is represented at lx)niion by T. V. Wilson, general Euro pean agent: and at JRome by Chevalier J. P. Spahiero. FROM. LAS VEGAS. The large safe at the Santa Fe depot in Springer was shipped to Trinidad. Ed Curtis, who was there, failed to open it and had it sent to his shop there, where his facilities are better. Robert Harlan, foreman of construction work for the Santa Fe company, came up to Albuquerque from San Mareial with his force of carpenters and proceeded to re build the barns and fences at the stock yards, which were destroyed by lire last week. A. Wallis, formerly of Las Vegas, has secured a contract on the grading of the Risbee-El Paso railroad. It is pretty sure now that the road is not going to "Dem ing. but ic is possible that the Santa Fe will go down to Columbus to effect a junction at Iteming.
