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.

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.

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.

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.

Order of Railway Telegraphers
Likely to Drop Dolphin.
Are Not Satisfied With His Man
ner of Conducting Strike.
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.
