Bake Them~ isily- tud ]erp Thr, f Yoa Ci a, I* sone.Cr c Every housewife has her favorite receipt f$r Christmas cakes, but she Is also Open to conviction when the Christmas spirit in baking takes possession of her. In fact, if tbere Is one time Ip the year when she Is willing to experiment. it is Just before the holidays when the househol* purse strings are loosened. Every country where the Christmas hl iday Is recognised and every state In the Union has some particular cake for which It has more than local fame. For instance, there are the Italian pastes, .the gay Freneh and German cakes and the English loaf cakes, each In Its turd worthy of housewifely attention. The following re ceipts have been triqd out by many gener ations of home cook: Virginia Walnut Cakes.-To one pint of the nuts, measured after they are shelled. allow one cupful of sugar, half cupful of butter, three eggs and a pinch of salt, quarter cupful of sweet milk with flour enough to make a dough. Beat the butter to a cream, and mix .thoroughly with the sugar. Next add the well-beatengs, the milk and the salt with a little of the flour. Then the nuts, which have been shellea and passed through the meat chopper, and last the remaining flour. Roll out lightly, cut Into shapes, sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake in a moderately hot oven. Christmas Cookies.-Cookies that have a genuine holiday flavor are made by combin Ing chocolate and fruit flavors. They can be trusted to find favor with the young people at least. The proportions given will make a fair quantity, but t)rey can be dou bled If much entertaining is done during the Christmas season. Allow 2 eggs, % cup of butter, 1 cupful of sugar, 2 cupfuls of flour and 1 teaspoonful of baking powder, % cup-of raisins measured after they have been stoned and chopped, and 2 tablespoon fuls of grated chocolate.

Rub the but ter and sugar to a cream, add the eggs, which have been well beaten, then the flour; which has been sifted with the baking pow der, and lastly the melted chocolate. Beat l-ard and mix very thoroughly, then work in thle raisins and roll the dough out to a thin sheet. Cut into shapes with fancy cutters, press one, two or three whole raisins into the top of each cookie accord ing to size and bake In a moderately quick oven. Keep fresh by packing them In a stone crock or earthenware dish with a cover. German Christmas Cakes.-The father land cook boasts of many receipts, but this one is a prime favorite with all classes. These delicious little sweets can be cut into as many shapes as the housewife has tin patterns and can also be made to take a variety of colors by dividing the icing in parts, tinting It green, rose or yellow with vegetable dyes and using chocolate for a fourth. To 4 eggs allow 1 pound of pastry flour, % pound of sugar, % pound of almonds well blanched and %4 pound of candled orange peel or citron, as preferred; 1 lemon, 1 large and juicy orange, % ounce of ground cinnamon and 'a teaspoon of good cloves; % teaspoon of allspice, 1 teaspoon ful of baking powder and % cup of honey.

Roll'ihto thin cakes, cut into fancy shapes, bake In a mod erate oven. When cold spread with boiled icing colored as directed above. English Mistletoe Cake-This cake is both ornamental and toothsome, for it shows the genuine Christmas colors. For the layers allow 3 ounces each of butter and sugar, 3 eggs, % pound of flour, 1 teaspoonful of baking powder and 1 wineglassful of orangeflower water. Separate the eggs and beat the whites to a stiff froth, the yolks to a cream.

Whenthe corn waveson thousands of acres, or when the plain is green with growing wheat, there is some thing to int*eest the sod house dwellers, bet from October td *ay no class of intelligent Amerieang ?itmore drearr lives than there. One wonde raebat livlih$ood, wht fut mo prosperity or pleasure can repay a man and wife to live in such huge samsbs. The shifting clouds by day and s sky of fnse stars at night are for weeks at'atime the t ly sights to be seen. Yet some of the maeet contented and aspiring people we have ever seen are men and women Who live ami stch fiat burroundings and dead solitt4e for years. - To realise in how primitive and solitary a fashion people can live and be happy, -one has only to imagine a man and wife in a sod house, fifteen miles from the nearest vil lage, In one of the sparsely settled districts of western Nebraska or Kansas. For days, and in some seasons for weeks, they bee no human. beings outside of their own house hold. Even begging Indians and tramps are almost unknown in this country. Prairie dogs cast up their mouns and found towns in the unmolested spots about the place; gophers and field mice burrow through the sod walls of the house; not in frequently snakes swing themselves down from the rafters inside, Or crawl in at the door to get at any milk pans standing about. At night coyotes and some of the gray wolves come up thbough the canyons and skulk about the poultry yard or howl close to the windows.. Through the day. while the man is in the fields, the 'herding usually falls to the woman's lot. Probably each takes a noon luncheon in a. paper, to save coming back to the -house until night. The -woman - attends to her necessary household duties, throws a- gunnysack over her broncho's back, jumps astride, rounds up her cattle, and drives them down the canyon to grass on the steep sides, or in a low strip beside a creek. Canyons are not sociable places; one can scarcely have a conception of the primeval unless he has walked through. a canyon; he thinks of the dawn of creation, of the races of extinct mammoths, and wonders if centaurs have not merely retired into the inner caverns. What the sod house woman thinks about h11 day long in solitude like that is hard to- tell -probably the mortgage on the farm, dis ease among the stock, the pr pects of crops, the time when they can pdttp their frame dwelling, the hard, unadorned facts in the treadmill of her life, new plans for the work, work, work, which is her sole law of existence. Perhaps she has mem ories of another time, other surroundings, but they must seem vague and far away. Even the weather is monotonous; there is practically always the cloudless sky, the brilliant sun, the etreigg, dry wind that curls the leaves of the *oung corn and turns the buffalo grass'rown. Living on the drearY .laind and amid such monotony, with never a thing to ap peal to one's aesthetic, social or literary nature, Is wearing upon must settlers, even if they are contented. The life makes wo men, particularly, prenaturely old. A few years of residence apart from their sex usually makes them careless of their ap pearance, dulls their ambitions, and creates a sordidness. Such a l#fe must have its in evitable mental and mora effect. All the sensitive, aesthetic, sorAeimes the moral sense itself, becomes atrop hied. The trage dies of a city are unearthed and brought to light, but the. silent tragedies of these dieso late lives are swallowed up-and lost in the remoteness and immdpslfoL:itbe prairie wastes. Women WagnEarnes. From the Philadelphia Ledger. The entrance of women in large num. bers to occupations which were once al most exclusively restricted to men is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the present industrial age. Its effect upon social conditions has become the subject of anxious inquiry. Competition for em ployment in gainful callings is no longer confined to one sex, and heads of families find it Increasingly difficult to maintain their charges unless their daughters be come wage-earners. Thus the ranks of labor at all suitable for women are con stantly recruited. Many women, married and unmarried, are obliged by necessity to seek employment from which they were formerly excluded by custom. Others de sire financial independence. Whatever the motive for the departure of women from the old ways, it must be regarded as a movement which Is having a tremendous influence for weal or woe. Its relation to wage-earning men must not be overlooked. A writer In the New York Tribune remarks that while we have been trying to discover what the effect of the new Industrial prog ress is on women, few except those imme diately touched are much concerned over what changes might be working hP the condition of fne man "whose, place, in many Instances, the wage-earning woman has usurped." The casual obse'rver cannot fail to note the large proportion or wage-earning women coming from industrial establishments at the close of the working day and to con trast this with former conditions. While wie are felcitating ourselves upon the opening opportunities for women and their success in new fields, the lowering of the wage rate, the displacement of fathers of families and young men, obliged by the new competition to postpone or abandon matrimony, deserve consideration. It ap pears from the last census that half the women in the United States over fifteen yeas of age are, un'married. The percent age Is likely to become higher with the increasing inability of men to marry. The sociological outcome deserveh attention. After enumerating the results of woman's activity--better wages, greater opportuni ties for her productive industry, a "release from the odious compulsion which drove women into marriage as the only means of livelihood" and "the ampler servic.e she can render socety"-Dr. Lyman Abbott significantly says In World's Work that motherhood is the highest service of all: **Law governs life, inedicine prolongs life, poetry porWakys life, art presents a si'mulacrum of life, the mother creates life. The education of the future will recognize motherhood as the supremnest of all des tinies, and the curricuhim of all schools and colleges worthy ofi this name wilt he fashioned to conform to this standard and' to prepare for this servic, The oNw UE.'
