Thin Wooden Veneer Wrapper Will
Prevent Girdling by Rodent?
Screen Wire Also Good.
i '
Perhaps the best protection against
girdling of fruit trees by mice and
rabbit? is obtained by using a thin
wooden veneer wrapper which has
been soaked to keep it from breaki ng,
then bent around the tree and held
in place by a single wire about line
middle, writes C. C. Wiggans in Mis
souri Valley Farmer. The wire stays
in place better if passed through a
hole near the outer edge of the veneer
wrapper. The wrapper should be
pushed down into the earth so mice
cannot burrow under it, or they may
be shut out by heaping soil up around
the bottom of the case and tramping it
firm. Coiled screen wire may be used
in much the same way, but it ls more
expensive The veneer wrappers do
not usually cost more than half or
three-quarter of a cent apiece, and
can be secured from any orchard sup
ply house.
Bunche? of long grass, or split corn
: stalks, may give good protection
against rabbits, but fail to keep mice
j from doing harm. Newspapers or tar

Paint and washes do not give good
?results, an the rabbits sometimes seem
to attack the washed trees more than
the untreated ones.

Vegetable That la Usually Considered
Somewhat Plebeian Has Many
Cabbage has not a very good reputa
tion among some people, and it ls a
stand-by winter vegetable of thousands
of others. Even for the fastidious
taste there are delicious ways of cook
ing cabbage, and in salad it can also
be used with appetizing results.
Chop a small head of cabbage, re
moving the heart. Put three table
spoonfuls of butter In a frying pan,
and two tablespoonful of flour, and
turn in the cabbage after the butter
and flour are well blended, then pour
on gradually a cupful of milk. Bring
to the boiling point and add two tea
spoonfuls of salt, a few dashes of pep
per, mix thoroughly and cover tightly
and cook forty minutes on the back of
the range. About five cupfuls of cab
bage are used for the other ingredi
ents. All vegetarians will relish this
toothsome dish. Its flavor is delicate
and delightful.
Baked Cabbage.-Soak cabbage one
hour in cold water, then boil ten min
utes after cutting in good sized pieces.
Place in a baking dish and cover with
one tablespoonful of butter, one of
flour and one cupful of milk. Salt and
pepper to taste. Cover with bread
crumbs and bake one hour.
Creamed Cabbage.-Soak a cabbage
for half an hour In cold water, then
trim it and cut it in eighths, and drop
it into a saucepan of boiling salted
water. Add a clove and a whole onion
and cook until tender. Remove the
onion, drain the cabbage and chop it
?fine,' Put in a saucepan with a table
spoonful of butter and slowly add
three tablespoonfuls of cream. Heat
thoroughly, season with pepper and
salt and serve.
Cheap Article Which lt Will Be Found
Economical to Keep Supply
on Hand.
Paraffin paper costs only about five
cents or ten cents for a big roll, and I
try to keep some on hand always.
Besides being fine for lining almost
every kind of a mold from cake to ice
cream, it's also good to use inside a
dish in which fish, like salmon loaf or
some other souffle dish, ls being
cooked. It's easy to remove-and, Joy
of joys-as you throw away the par
affin paper you throw away the fish
aroma which makes the washing of
fish utensils so odious.
Then it's also good to use to wrap
around foods before placing them In
the Ice box Of course, I cover almost
all foa?Xvrith the cover that comes
witfr tpBBtsh. /what*can you use
to cover a roast that has been cooked?
I haven't a dish cover of any kind
that's large enough or shaped right
to do this. Answer, I wrap lt in a
little paraffin paper dress. The paraf
fin doesn't absorb the Juices as tissue
paper would, and lt keeps away odors
of other foods. In fact, a little sheet
of paraffin paper can be used to cover
any dish in the refrigerator in lieu of
any other kind of cover, and it is a
sure protector against the dish ab
sorbing odors from neighboring foods.
Beefsteak Chowder.
Cut slice of salt pork into small lots,
with one onion minced fine; cook un
til a nice brown; add one quart of
boiling water, let simmer five minutes,
then add one pound round steak cut
into strips one-half-inch thick and two
inches long; bring this quickly to a
boil, then simmer until the meat is
tender; add four or five pared and
sliced potatoes, season with salt and
pepper, add more boiling water and
when potatoes are tender add one and
one-half cupfuls of good rich milk or
cream; split six or eight crackers, put
into soup dish and pour chowder over
them, serving at once.
To Starch Fine Lingerie.
Many housewives experience great
difficulty in laundering fine lingerie,
such as dainty waists, jabots, collars
and so forth. The chief difficulty
seems to lie in giving them just the
proper degree of crispness. Rinsing
them In a solution of borax gives the
right degree of stiffness and renders
them Just like new. Two heaping ta
blespoonfuls of borax to five quarts of
water ls a good proportion. This is
also excellent for thin dresses
trimmed with lace.
Corn With Cheese.
Cut cold bolled corn from the cob,
put in double boiler with milk enough
to cover. When hot add cheese to
suit your taste cut in thin bits, pep
per and salt. Keep hot till cheese
melts, but do not boil. Nice for sup
Fig Compote.
Wash one pound figs, cover with
one pint cold water. Soak over night.
In the morning add two bay leaves
and cook one-half hour. Strain gen
tly. Boil sirup down to one cupful and
pour over figs. Chill, serve with sweet
ened whipped cream.
Warming Over Meat.
Th? best way to warm up a roast of
meat is to wrap it in thickly greased
paper, and keep it covered while In
the oven. By having it covered the
steam will prevent the meat from be
coming hard and dry, and it will be
some heated through in le&s time.
German Pancakes.
To each egg take one tablespoonful
of flour, a pinch of salt, a pinch of
baking powder and add enough milk
so it will pour easily into the pan.
Make about as thick as griddlecakes.
