MEAT SUBSTITUTES.
The housewife who finds it difficult,

to keep her household expense within
bounds, may gain new inspiration
from studying the following nut
dishes.

hickory nut meats and roll very fine;
add two well beaten eggs, one-fourth
of a cup of bread crumbs, a cup of
thin cream, half a teaspoonful of salt
and a few dasheB of red pepper. Line
timbale molds with strips of pimento,
and turn in the mixture. Put the
molds in a basin of boiling water and
bake in a moderate oven for twenty
minutes. TJnmold and serve with
cream sauce.
Nuts and mushrooms served in a
i white sauce in ramekins makes a de
licious entree.

^ tender two cups of pecan nut meats
(either chopped or broken) in four
cups of water, then strain and add
a half cup each of diced potatoes and
carrots, two small onions thinly sliced,
two tablesponfuls of green pepper
chopped and two cups of stewed to
matoes. Cook until the diced vegeta
bles are soft, without losing the shape,
and turn the mixture into a colander
to drain.
Mix in carefully the nut meats and
turn into a hot serving dish. Reheat
the stock in which the vegetables
were cooked, thicken with two table
sponfuls each of peanut butter and
flour cooked together; cook until
smooth, and pour over the vegetables
and serve.

lentils and soak over night. In the
morning drain and parboil in fresh
boiling water thirty minutes; drain

of a cup of olive oil, one cup of fine |

USEFUL SOUR MILK.
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.

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.
