an attractive box, their very appear

It is a comparatively easy matter to

of tho cost they would be when pur

My dear Mrs. Wilson I have read
with great interest your very in
structive articles on breads, dainty
nnd cheap desserts and fruit and hot
breads, and I look In font1 anticipa
tion for articles to follow. I am in
hopes that one article on quick
breads, nuch aa biscuits, mufllns, etc ,
will soon appear, as the male mem
bers now clamor for tho same. In
your articles on raised breads, I
notice frequent mention of tempera
ture, so many degrees Fntirenhelt.
Now while I with many others know
nbout this, yet tho majority do not
comprehend. Could you not, for
the benefit of the many who -juld
liko to learn, mora fully explain?

rreat benefit to us all. I look for

articles. -1IRS. A.

In reference to your question on tem

preparing food. Now, yeast Is a plant,
S and upon Hb successful growth will
- 'depend tho quality of our bread,
Various degrees of heat are necessary
for Its success. In making bread, tho
baker finds out, by Ions practice, just
as tho florist does with his green
houses, to keep his bakcrooms In a
warm moist heat. Teast thriven and
grows, thus raising tho dough; from
'78 to 85 degrees Fahrenhoit Is about
right; If the room is hotter than this
X tho dough becomes wild. Now, If the
w milk or water that Is used to mix
a, the dough la too cool, It will prevent
Jtho yeast from getting a good start,
and thus delay tho tlmo for the proper
' working of the dough, while If on the
other hand the. liquid Is too hot the
yeast Is scalded and partially de
stroyed, thus making a poor loaf.
If an even, steady beat Is malntaln
v ed 0 light, delicious loaf Is obtained.
You will need no fancy tools or ther
mometers to mako bread. Any ther

That Leftover Turkey
Thero was never a family, It
seems, quite largo enough to get
away with tho entire Christmas
turkey. In fact, In most families
It Is "turkey this" anil "turkey

you would like to know some deli
cious new wnys to servo that big
"leftover bird," don't fall to look
tot Mrs. Wilson's article on the day
after Christmas. It is called
"Utilizing the Leftover Turkey,"
and it wouldn't bo a bad Idea to
clip It out, not only for tho pres

wooden spoon. Add tho chopped
nuts and raisins to this and then

there a Santa Claus?

been affected by the skepticism of a
skeptical age. They do not behove

men's or children's, are little.
"Yes, Virginia, thero Is a Santa

there were no Virginias. There
would be no child-like faith then, no
poetry, no romance to make tolerable
this existence. We should have no
enjoyment except in sense and sight.
Tho eternal light with which child

ever lived, could ever tear apart. Only
faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance,
can push aside that curtain and view
and plcturo the supernatural beauty
and glory beyond. Is It all real? All,
Virginia, In all this world there is
nothing else real and abiding.
