SAVORY SWEETBREADS. Sweetbreads vary so in price in different markets that they may be called n expen sive luxury one place and an ordi nary priced i in others. 3weet breads get their j name from a fan- \ cied resemblance ; to the rising '.ough 1 of bread. When choosing sweetbreads see that they are fresh and large. Their color should be clear, and If they are not to be used immediately ! they should be parboiled. One of the best liked and perhaps the commonest ways of serving this dainty is m a cream sauce in rame kins or on toast Parboil, then cut in bits, removing all of the connecting , tissue. To blanch, cook in a little j acidulated water, a tablespoonful of vinegar to a pint of water is suffi- ! cient Then add them tc a hot, rich- white sauce, well seasoned, and serve. j Sweetbread Salad.-Cut np a sweet bread that has been cooked, mix with an equal quantity of celery cut in dice, season well, add mayonnaise and serve on lettuce. Sweetbread? and Peas-This com bination seems to be especially happy., Parboil two pairs of good sized sweet- j breads with one sliced onion, a bay leaf and two or three cloves-saving the water to be used in making the sauce. Remove the fiber and pick the sweetbreads to pieces, mix with a cupful of fresh mushrooms that have been cooked tn three tablespoon fuls of butter for ten m ??utes. Add a can of peas, drained of their liquor, a cupful of rich milk, salt, pepper, and a grating of nutmeg. Thicken with a tablespoonful each of butter and flour, add the liquor strained, and the sweetbread mixture. Serve in timbale cases or on toast. Sweetbread Sandwiches.-Cut some cold boiled sweetbreads in thin slices, season with salt, pepper and finely chopped celery in may onnaise, spread over the sweetbreads, then on top put a thinly cut slice of buttered bread. For every person who has worn out there are a hundred who have rusted out Today ls the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. SEASONABLE DISHES. When there are a few oysters left and not enough for a meal, put one in each cake of sausage, pat out until quite thin, then cook as usual. The sausage will flavor the oyster and the oyster fla vors the sausage. Sausages With Chest nuts.-Roast chestnuts and take the skins off; fry six small flat oval cakes of sausage meat when well browned take them out and pour off nearly all of the fat, mix it with a tablespoonful of flour and cook until brown. Add a pint of strong beef stock or gravy, a glass of grape jelly, some savory herbs, salt, pepper and paprika to taste. Bring to the boiling point, lay in the sau sages and the chestnuts and stew very gently for an hour. Heap the chestnuts in the center of a hot plat ter, arrange the sausage around them and pour the strained gravy over all. Serve very hot. Sausages served with fried banana is another well liked dish. Add a glass of orange mar malade to your mincemeat if it seems to lack something which you cannot define. Ripe olives, stoned and chopped, mixed with apple and celery, served with mayonnaise dressing is another good combination. Mock Chicken Salad.-Cook a pound of veal with a small piece of onion and celery until tender in boiling wa ter. Chop the meat, add a cupful of finely cut celery, half a dozen stuffed olives cut in halves, marinate well in French dressing to which is added a little Worcestershire sauce. Mold in ice cream cones and serve on lettuce. Garnish with ives at the base of the cone. Savory Cheese.-To a fourth of a pound of Roquefort add a cream cheese put through a ricer, add olive oil or cream to make it soft, season with a tablespoonful of grated onion, a tablespoonful of finely chopped pars ley and a red pepper put through a sieve. A finely chopped green pepper may be substituted, add salt and cay enne, mix well, press into a small mold lined with waxed paper. Serve unmolded on a plate with toasted crackers served with lt. ?CLIPSES OF EARLY DATE Astronomers Hold Differing Opinions as to When They Were Officially Observed in China. Messrs. Hiyarama and Ogura have published in the proceedings of the Tokio Mathematico-Physical society the results of their attempts to fix the dates of some early eclipses recorded in Chinese literature. The earliest is mentioned in one of the books of the Shu Ching, where it is recorded that in the reign of Chung K'ang, the fourth emperor of the Hsia dynasty, there occurred an eclipse of the sun which had not been predicted by the astronomers, who were alleged to have been drunk and to have neglected their duties. Hence the customary rites for de ivering the sun, which should have been arranged by the as tronomers, were In the emergency performed by other officials without proper preparation. The emperor ac cordingly odered the army to punish the astronomers. A later document makes it possible to fix the date of this event as October 13, 2127 B. C. (Julian calendar)-the earliest record ed eclipse in the world. Calculation shows that there actually was a solar eclipse on that date, but probably not in China, though the elements of,the motions of the sun and moon are not accurate enough to indicate certainly the path of so remote an eclipse. The authors are inclined to think that the information fixing the date of the eclipse is due to Chinese astronomers of a later age, who calculated that an eclipse occurred on that date and er roneously supposed that it was visible in China. SHOWING HOW TO DO THINGS Much That Could Be Accomplished by Woman County Agent in a Community. The United States department of Agriculture has started a movement to place a woman county agent in every community in this country. And why shouldn't it? Mother needs help just as well as father. The woman county agent is to do for women, girls and the home what the farm demonstration agent does for the men and the boys on the farm. ? The aim in each case is to get done some definite worth-while things, ? which teach a lesson and inspire to greater achievements. In the girls' canning-club work the girls are in structed how to grow tomatoes and other vegetables on one-tenth of an acre, and how to can, preserve, pickle, ? and in other ways utilize the products. ? Winter garden clubs and poultry clubs have naturally followed the work in canning and summer gardening. Bread making and many other forms of home improvement work have also been ' taken up. This work trains girls to ! become efficient home makers, develop the resources of the farm, to Improve the quality of the country life and to become economically independent. Prom the girls' garden to the moth ers' kitchen and the home is a short and easy step. The work with girls has opened the way for systematic home-economics work in the rural home, and has developed the logical organization and method for doing this work. I Cost of Radium Greatly Reduced. As a result of work done by the bureau of mines of the United States department of the interior, in connec tion with the National Radium insti tute, radium bromide has been pro duced at a cost of only $36,050 per gram, a most remarkable result when lt is remembered that only re cently the salt has been selling for j $120,000 and upward per gram. ? Still, we have no definite information what it costs to produce this high? j priced salt. There is, however, little possibility that the prices will be greatly reduced, as aJl of the known deposits of the carnotite ores, from which radium is at present obtained, j are held very closely by their own- ' ers; and moreover, these deposits can not last many years at the present rate of working. These facts, together with a rapidl}Mncreasing demand, will undoubtedly increase the price of ra dium even above the above big fig ures, notwithstanding the improve ments in the methods of extracting. Scientific American. Case of Bible Reading. The Rev. W. Y. Fullerton of the Baptist Missionary society told a good story at the anniversary meeting of the International Bible Reading asso-1 ciation. As shewing that some peo ple needed guidance in the selection of their Bible reading, Mr. Fullerton, ! says the Westminster Gazette, re- ! called an incident reminiscent of his" mission days, when a man came to his 1 meeting and told of his efforts to comfort his wife as she lay upon the sick bed. "I read the Bible to her | every night," he said. "What did you read?" inquired the missioner. "Well," said the man, "I began at the first chapter of the Book of Proverbs, and : when I had finished the book she j died!" The Only Way. "An expert in affairs of the heart says that if a young couple don't quar-1 rel at breakfast, they'll probably get through the day without a fuss." "That sounds reasonable, but I'd hate to miss my breakfast." Significant Sort. "Did that smart Alec criticize your wife's style?" "Ho hogan, but when I started in to object the rest of his remarks were in the way of running comment." GOOD APARTMENTS, LOW RENT Experiment Undertaken at De? Moines, la., Asserted to Be a Complete Success. A practical demonstration to prove that individual apartments with mod ern plumbing, sanitary conveniences, and absolute privacy for each family, can be built to rent for from $8 to $12.50 per month and yet yield a rea sonable profit to the builder, was made a short time ago at Des Moines, la The Octavia Hill association, which has already won renown in solving housing problems, has worked out the plan to the smallest detail and is building the model houses. Forty-five families were provided for :ln the first block now under construction. The houses, which are of red brick, are simply finished with sufficient trimming to keep them from being se verely plain. One important feature of the property is the provision for the children. About 8,000 square feet of ground in the center of the block will be used for a playground. The rent collectors are trained society workers and will volunteer to start the playground activities. The investment will reach nearly $60,000, which ls represented by cap ital stock and a mortgage which pay? 4.4 per cent a year. The investment will yield a gross Income of 10.9 per cent per year, after deducting taxes, insurance, water rents, cost of collec tion of rents, social work, deprecia tion, etc., of 5,7 per cent. The Des Moines venture i? a test case to prove that the unsanitary and bad housing conditions which prevail for the low-salaried workingmen are criminally unnecessary. It i? voic ing an unanswerable protest against the crowded tenement, the dilapidated and unsanitary house which is virtu ally the only kind offered to the man who must pay less than $15 a month rental. The association now owns or man ages 353 dwellings, housing 2,500 peo ple, and has never failed to pay four per cent a year to its stockholders. HAS MANY POINTS OF VALUE Tower In California City That Might Well Be Copied In Other Communities. In the center of the principal street of Bakersfield, Cal., is a stone tower 80 feet high and 20 feet squar^* says a writer in Popular Mechan ics. The tower has varied uses. In the top is the city clock; in the middle is a large alarm bell, and around the base is a corridor with entrances on all four sides. Stone benches are pro vided for tired pe destrians. An ad ditional feature of the interior is a rest room. The tower is just one block from the city hall, the library, and the county court house. Because of this, the structure ls a convenient meeting place for ac quaintances from all parts of the city and county. SELECT TREES WITH CARE Matter Worth Great Consideration by tho One Who ls Planning e Real Home. Now that the process of tree mov ing is so successful, it is a simple matter to annex and preserve as one's own specimens of the numerous beau tiful trees which the countryside dweller is apt to ran across in his woodland rambles. Do not make the mistake, however, of thinking that any kind of a treo can be planted in any place; selec tions need to be made with intelli gence and duo regard to drainage and soil. The ever-changing beauty of the mountain maple makes it an unusu ally satisfactory tree for ornamental planting. The branches in winter are beautiful In coloring, as in spring are tho buds and blossoms, followed in summer by thc developing fruits. The wild plum tree, too, has possi bilities which too many people fail to recognize. The blossoms of this tree are the nearest we get to the cherry blossom display of the Japanese, and although their beauty endures for only a brief season, the trees are especially desirable when planted along rooker ies or along walls. For the Flower Grower. Sow mignonette in pots for early spring flowering. To keep geraniums in bloom give a temperature of 60 degrees during the day and 50 degrees at night. Keep them in the dryest situation possible, avoiding too much water at the roots and too much artificial manure. A florists' paper says that on low land pussy willows can be grown to advantage. If you wa,nt to grow them and i-a-^i no low land set them out on high ground, where they will do quite as well. HELP YOUR LIVER-IT PAYS.
