Planked !s, of Course, the Most Pop
ular, and P"-5uauly the Best- Never
?. S.no-id Be Fried-Salads to
Go With lt.
There is no moro templing cr deli
cious dish than shad.
S iad muy be prepared in many
ways; probably the most popular is
p?ai:.i?'d shad. Many housewives think
such a dish cut of the question, but
all that one needs is a gcod hot fire
and a plank. He sure, however, lo sea- ?
son and garnish your fish before it j
is placed on the table, or it will not j
bo a success.
You ask how eau I get a plank? j
j\ carpenter will make you one of oak
ttbeut two inches thick for the small
?sum of 50 ceuts. It can be used in
definitely for the constant charring
of the v.ood, only adds to the flavor of
the fish.
To plank shad first wash and wipe
the whole fish thoroughly. Sprinkle
with salt and pepper, then fill it with
this stuffing: Two cupfuls of bread
crumbs or mashed potatoes, a grating
of onion, a tablespoonful of parsley,
butter the size of an egg.
With a shar?) knife cut three or four
slits in the upper side of the fish, aud
put a thin slice of bacon in each open
ing. lt should be baked in a mod
crate oven for ul? minutes. If you
cook with gas bake it for part of the
time in *he oven, then brown and liu
ish under the flame.
Tl proper salads to serve with
shad are watercress and tomato, cu
cumbers and onions, or a salad of
radishes cut thin aud laid on lettuce
Hroiled shad may be accomplished
with the ordinary broiler, but great
care should be taken lest the tish
is seared, if it is cooked over the
open coals. Wise housewives never
fry shad, as it is apt to absorb the
grease and it loses much of its dainty
fiavor. if prepared in this manner.
An unusual recipe for shad is to put
it in a sour pickle, and let it remain
there for a day or so, then serve for
a light supper. The shad should be
cut in tipiares about three inches
square, then boiled for 20 minutes.
Heat some vinegar, season with pep
per and salt, and crush some allspice
in it. Pour this hot over the tish |
and keep it tightly covered for several j
hours before serving. It is delicious. I

Using Lemon Rinds.
Everyone will be slad to know of a
way to sove your lemon rinds after
making lemonade. Remove as much
as possible of the pith, cut the rinds
in strips, with scissors, about one
quarter inch wide. Get one pint of
pure grain alcohol and put In a glass
jar; into this drop the strips of lemon
until you have used 15 lemons. They
do not all have to be put In at the
.same time. The whole amount should
.stand a week. Then strain through
fine muslin. That ls all there is to it
.and you have the pure article with no
coloring or flavoring and it is a fine
Stuffed Corn Beef.
This ls a somewhat unusual way of
rcooking a familiar meat, and makes a
(pleasant variety. Select a lean, chunky
?piece and after cooking or soaking it
In fresh water, to remove the brine,
make several deep incisions in lt. Fill
these cuts with bread stuffing highly
seasoned with pepper and onion. Tie
the stuffed meat tightly In a cloth, dip
?it In vinegar, and then Bimmer lt In
[bolling water. Allow 20 minutes for
.each pound of meat. Drain before un
ifying the cloth.
Rice and Apples.
One cupful of rice and five large
cooking apples. Wash the rice well In
l?verai waters, pare and slice the
ipples; cover with water. When
boiled sweeten to taste. Eat with
cream. To make lt look nice whip
the whites of two egss. sweeten,
cover the dish, brown in the oven for
a minute, take out and put drops of
current Jelly on top.
Orange Filling.
One-half cup .sugar, two level table
spoonfuls cornstarch, grated rind one
half orange, one-third cup orange
juice, one tablespoonful lemon Juice,
one egg beaten slightly, one teaspoon
ful melted butter.

Li'g;-,t From the Earth.
The darkes part cu' the sky is al
ways aglow. The earth itself gives
off a lot of light. Scientists of the
Franklin institute have measured this
earth light and have found that it is
of the order of one-tenth part of the
intensity of a star of the first order of
magnitude. It is attributed, at least
partially, to a permanent aurora bore
alis which is revealed by the charac
teristic green ray observed on ob
scure nights in the whole heavens.
Bad News.
Small Peter, disguised as a district
messenger, was delivering play tele
grams to his sisters, who were im
provising dispatches of a more or less
startling nature. When it came Lil
lian's turn, she read aloud from her
bit of yellow paper, amid finely simu
lated wails of woe: "Railroad wreck.
I was instantly killed; Your loving
Soldier's Mest Trying Position.
The average soldier linds the most
terrifying position to be that of staud
inj motionless in the front rank, ex
posed to the enemy's fire without be
ing able to reply. The order to ad
vance or to charge with fixed bayonets
is then received as a release from
agony. Movement, even into greater
peril, distracts the mind and greatly
reduces the mental anguish.
No Chances for Kim.
A dealer selling cloth in a small
town asked an irishman who was
passing if he would buy a suit length,
and added: "You eau ha."" it for ten
bob." To which Pat replied: "Begobi
sir. if tuppence would buy the makings
of a topcoat fer an elephant I couldn't
buy the makings of a pair ol' leggings!
