For those who have never eaten a dish of thick sour milk, sprinkled with a bit of maple or brown sugar and a dusting of nutmeg, there is a dish new worth trying. A pan of milk left with the cream on it and allowed to thicken may be still more delicious and palatable. Another point in ita favor is the wholesomeness. In for eign countries they are using the sour milk cure, which is said to destroy harmful bacteria found in the alimen tary canal. Sour milk may he used in spice cake, giving it the flavor and moisture particularly well liked. Ginger cake is another cake especially nice, made with sour milk. The following recipes are worth trying and putting into tho family scrap book: Spice Cake^-Soften three table spoonfuls of butter and mix with a cup of sugar ,add a teaspoonful of soda to a cup of sour milk, a well beaten egg and a teaspoonful each of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, a half teaspoonful of salt; mix all together, beat well and add two cups of bread flour. Bake in a loaf or in patty tins. A few tablespoonfuls of cocoa is liked by many in a spice cake; it makes lt a richer color. Cottage Cheese Salad.-Mix chopped chive?, added to cottage cheese well seasoned; serve on lettuce with a boiled dressing. Cottage cheese made at home is prepared by pouring boil ing water into a pan of thickened milk and then putting the curd which re sults to draiD in a sieve or bag. Cheese made this way ls never tough and hard, as it often ls when cooked on the stove, for If left for a moment too long it becomes hard and indi gestible. Thick milk may be put into a bag without any cooking, if carefully done, and left to drain over night, then in the morning the curds may be sea soned as desired. When one has a little sour milk put it in a pitcher or glass jar, add a little salt, and at each addition stir it well, then when a cupful is wanted it will be ready to use. / M ND of you fall-why. rise J?TSB^ again! Get up, go on; you may be sorely bruised and soiled with your fall, but is that any reason for lying still, and giving up the struggle cow ardly? -Chas. Kingsley. HOUSEKEEPING HINTS. A few minced nasturtium leaves sprinkled over an omelet gives it a nice flavor for a variety. Bleach linen or lace In a bowl or dish covered with glass to keep out dust, and let it stand in the bright sunshine. An ideal place for bleach ing is the hot bed after the plants are removed. Put the linen in wash bowls and keep covered with the win daws. Raisins are well cleaned by rubbing them with dry flour, then shaking, them in a sieve. Leather chair seats or any leather covers may be restored to their orig inal color by using oil paints and gas oline. Get the color desired, dilute with gasoline and paint over the leather. Laces of all colors may be dyed in this way, dipping them until the desired shade is reached. A little alcohol on a damp cloth will clean mirrors beautifully. Follow with a polish from a chamois skin. Pepper Loaf.-Take a pound of beef and half a pound of pork, grind fine and add one onion and one green pep per chopped, one egg, salt and pepper to season ; make in the form of a loaf, lay on strips of bacon and bake one hour. The last half of the baking, pour over a cup of tomato. If one has a scrap of an old India shawl or a paisley or broche, save the bits mount them, have a pretty frame and some brass handles put on lt, and you will have a tray that will be an heirloom worth handing down. Rare bits of lace or embroidery, cross-stitch or other antique treasuries may be used in the same way. Clean chamois gloves with flour and gasoline. Put on the gloves and wash as if washing the hands, then hang in the air and dust out all the flour. This world generaly gives its ad miration, not to the one who does what nobody else can do, but to the one who does best what others do well-Macauley.
