SOME WAYS WITH MEAT.
! These are unusual ways of prepar
ing some of the common dishes:
Stuffed Spareribs. -
Sew spareribs together
to form a pocket or in
the form of a crown
roast. Fill with finely
chopped, tart apple and
prunes, using a cupful of
prunes to two cupfuls of
apple. Add the juice in
which the prunes were
cooked and season the
meat with salt and pepper
Noodles With Ham.-Cut noodle
dough rolled very thin into one-fourth
inch squares. Boil in the liquor of the
ham or in water. Butter a pan, place
in it a layer of noodles, then a layer
of minced ham and continue, leaving
the top layer of noodles. Beat two*
eggs with two cupfuls of milk and.
pour over the mixture. Dot the top
with bits of butter and bake slowly.
Sausage in Potato.-Pare a large po
tato and cut a hole through the center
lengthwise with an apple corer. Draw
a small sausage through each potato,
wrap in a piece of bacon and bake un
til the potatoes are done.
Lamb Hot Pot.-Take convenient
sized pieces for serving of lamb cut
from the neck or shoulder. Roll the
meat in flour, salt and pepper and
pla^e in the cooking dish. Cover with
layers of onion and potatoes, sliced
thin, having potatoes on top. Bake in
slow oven for three hours, adding wa
ter from time to time as needed.
Serve in the same dish in which it was
Stuffed Brisket of Lamb.-Wipe the
brisket, make an opening and fill with
stuffing, sew up the opening and dust
all over with salt and pepper. Place
sliced carrot and onion ir the baking
pan, put in the meat and add a little
hot fat and enough hot soup stock or
water to cover the bottom of the pan.
Roast about an hour, basting frequent
ly. When tender remove the meat and
allow the liquor to boil down. Thicken j
the liquor for gravy and serve with
Ham covered with milk, a thick
slice of ham and a quart of milk,
baked slowly in the oven with a bit
of bay leaf, ie another appetizing dish.
Step out from the surging crowd and
make yourself a master.-Clay.
Our greatest glory is not in never
falling but in rising every time we fall.
DISHES FOR DAILY MENU.
Few people appreciate the value of
the banana as a dish served with
meat as a vegetable.
Loosen the skins from
the fruit; but do not re
move them, place in a
hot frying pan and cook
until the pulp is very
soft. Remove the skins,
sprinkle with sugar and
a drop or two of lemon
juice and butter, and
serve with steak. Sliced
and sauteed in butter, the banana is
also good, seasoned with a little lemon
Fricasseed Eggs.-Cook two table
spoonfuls of butter with one and a
half tablespoonfuls of finely chopped
green onion, and the same amount of
mushrooms also chopped. Add one
and a half tablespoonfuls of flour and
pour on gradually one cupful of white
Btock. Add five hard-cooked eggs cut
Deviled Tomatoes.-Wipe, peel and
slice crosswise three tomatoes. Sea
son with salt and pepper, roll in flour
end cook in a hot pan in a little but
ter. Cream a fourth of a cupful of
butter, add two tablespoonfuls cf pow
dered sugar, one teaspoonful of mus
tard, one-fourth of a teaspoonful of
salt, a dash of cayenne, the yolk
of a hard-cooked egg, one egg slightly
beaten and two tablespoonfuls of
vinegar. Cook over hot water and
pour hot over the tomatoes.
Bechamel Eggs.-Fry a slice of car
lot, onion and sprig of parsley, all
minced in three tablespoonfuls of
butter with a bit of bay leaf. After
five minutes add three tablespoonfuls
.f flour, one-fourth of a teaspoonful
of salt, and one-eighth of a teaspoon
ful of paprika, add a cupful of
chicken broth, strain, reheat and add
four hard-cooked eggs cut in eighths
lengthwise. Add a half cupful of
eream and a grating of nutmeg juat
Apfel Schmarren.-Make a thin bat
ter of two tablespoonfuls of milk, one
tablespoonful of flour, a beaten egg,
seasoning with salt and slice into this
a large apple. Have & teaspoonful of
hot fat in a frying pan, pour lr the
batter and fry brown. Serve with
NEGLECT VALUE OF RECORDS
Cow Bought at Low Price Not Always
Best Investment-Best to Keep
Track of Feed and Milk.
Is the cheaper-priced dairy cow
necessarily the better investment?
The question is well answered in the
following instance: A man wishing
a cow for dairy purposes called upon
a dairyman who kept milk records as
well as cost accounts. The buyer con
fined his attention to two cows. One
of these would cost him $75, the other
$175. The former was in good condi
tion, but the dairy characteristics were
not as fully developed as they might
have been; the latter was the direct
opposite. The records of the two
cows were shown the buyer, but he
was not as much interested in records
as he should have been. He did not
consider it worth while to sit down
and figure out which would be the bet
7 Butter sold for 35 cents per pound j i
S the year around. ??
y The $75 cow had a record of 226 <,
2 pounds of butter. '?
S 226 pounds at 35c-$79.10. ,!
I Cost of feed-$72. S
I $79.10-$72.00-$7.10 profit per year, i
S The $175 cow had a record of 415 <;

i Cost of feed-$S4.00. ?
J $145.25-$S4.00-$61.25 profit per ?i
5 year. ,|
From these figurea we see that it
would take the $75 cow about ten
years to pay for herself in butter; if
she was a middle-aged cow she would
never do it On the other hand, the
$175 cow would have paid for herself
in butter in less than three years.
The buyer bought the $75 cow.
Would he have done this if he had
appreciated the value of records, and
figured out the value of each cow?
TREATING ULCERS OF CORNEA
Touch All Parts, of Sore With Stick of
Nitrate of Silver-Bathe With
Solution of Salt Water.
Ulcers of the cornea in calves may
be caused by several things, such a9
bruises, abscesses, or beards from fox
tail; or it may be the result of a se
vere attack of pink eye. You can tell
ulcers of the cornea from pink eye by
means of the discharge. Instead of
pus, you will find an acid, watery fluid.
If it should be ulcer of the cornea, or
ulcers formed by very violent cases
of the pink eye, the treatment is about
the same. Take a stick of nitrate of
silver, sharpen as you would a pencil,
get an attendant to hold the head of
the calf, keeping the eyelids back, and
touch all parts of the ulcer lightly with
the stick of silver nitrate. Wait a few
minutes and bathe eyes with a solu
tion of salt water.
Repeat this operation in about three
days. Unless you have a distinct pro- ;
jection on the cornea of the eye, do
not use the caustic treatment. Bathe
several times a day with sulphate of
Zinc, 15 grains to a half pint of soft I
water. Protect the eyes from flies, |
USEFUL IN CARRYING SILAGE
Contrivance Adapted to Average-Sized
and Small Feeding Yards-Arrange
ment Saves Labor.
The Nebraska experiment station in
its Bulletin No. 145 describes In de
tail the silage carrier shown here. It
is adapted to average-sized and small
feeding yards and is a highly useful
and labor-saving arrangement. The|
boom or arm to which the carrier is
attached must be strongly attached
and guyed. The feeding racks are
arranged in a semicircle that brings
them, just under the tip of the arm.
GIVE COWS SALT REGULARLY
Best Plan ls to Have Box Handy
Where Animals Can Help Them
selves Whenever They Wish.
Don't forget to salt the cows. In
experiments it has been found that a
cow should have three-fourths of an
ounce of salt a day live weight, with
an additional six-tenths of an ounce
for each twenty pounds of milk pro
duced, to keep her in the best of con
Animals deprived of salt become
emaciated and of low vitality, finally
suffering a complete breakdown. Salt
should be provided regularly.
The best plan is to have a box con
taining sa!t where the animals can get
to it wb.c-never they so desire. Either
fine salt or rock salt can be used, al
though we prefer the latter.

TEXT-The God of Isaac-Exod. 3:5.
Speaking of the story of Isaac, found
in the Old Testament, Mark Guy
Pearse saya :
"Turning from the
story of Abraham,
with its stirring
scenes and splen
did triumphs, to
the uneventful rec
ord of Isaac, is as
when on a breezy
day I have stood
on the cliff and
waves as they
leapt in showers
of spray, whilst
the birds have
wheeled about the crags, and far
out at sea the ships have left their
traces in foam-then turning inland,
I have gone down the hillside into the
still valley, sheltered from the winds,
and there the lonely plowman drove
the team across the heavy clods. All
is still-dull, if you please to call lt
BO-that is Isaac." As another has
put it, "the salient feature of his life
Is that it has no salient features." He
Is a type of the commonplace people
of whom God has made so many. How
thrilling it is to know that God is the
God of Isaac and of all like unto
Isaac's life was no doubt a disap
pointment to men. He came by
miraculous birth, yet proved to he Just
an ordinary man. Many have hoped
to be the happy fathers of artists,
sculptors, musicians and scholars, but
their children have turned out to be
house painters, stone masons, and dry
goods clerks. Still, it is well to have
entertained these hopes, for if our
children are no more remarkable than
they are. In spite of our ambitions,
what might they have been if we had
had no ambitions for them.
Isaac's life was directed hy God.
This appears especially in the story
of his marriage, found in Gen. 24
"The steps of a good man are ordered
of the Lord," no matter how dull and
brown his life may be outwardly; an
"ordinary" life may still be an "or
dered" life. Horace Bushnell, in his
great sermon on "Every Man's Life
a Plan of God." states his theme thus:
"That God has a definite plan for
every human person, girding him
visibly or invisibly for some exact
thing, which it will be the true sig
nificance and glory of his life to^ve
In character Isaac was marked by
the passive virtues. We do not ap
prec?ate patience, gentleness, meek
ness, and other quiet graces as much
as we should.
Submission was a marked element
in his make-up. When Abraham would
offer him as a sacrifice on Mount Mo
riah he made no resistance, though
the knife actually flashed over him.
What a picture he was of our Lord
in his submission (Heb. 10:5-7). This
element appears again in Isaac's lifo
at Gerar. As fast as he would dig
wells at this place the Philistines
would contend for them, but instead
of quarreling. Isaac would move on
and dig another weil. The outcome
of his meekness was that the Philis
tines came to him to make a cov
enant, saying, "We saw certainly that
the Lord was with thee." Even now
there is a sense In which the meek
Inherit the earth.
This quiet man was thoughtful, and
we see him going out to meditate in
the fields at the eventide (Gen. 24:63).
Quiet people may know things better
than others and know them more
deeply. This twentieth century, "with
bloodshot eye and fevered pulse," has
lost the art of meditation, but only
when truth saturates us does lt really
become a life power.
Isaac was affectionate, as manifest
ed in his relation to his mother and
his wife (Gen. 24:67). We need such
people in the world. We have often
noticed that a plain mother, who has
a great heart, will be adored by a son
who shines in the world of science or
How suprising it is to find that this
quiet man was, nevertheless, sensu
ous. "Isaac loved Esau because he
did eat of his venison" (Gen. 25:28;
27:24). We have, In this matter, a
suggestion of one danger of the quiet
life. Alexander Wright says the great
est glutton he ever knew never
crossed his own doorstep and his only
walk was between his desk and the
dining table. Temperance, or, as the
Revised Version renders, self-control,
ls a grace much insisted on in the
Isaac's commonplace life is notable
because linked with Christ. He was
-an ancestor of Christ and also a type
of him in that his birth was super
natural and that, "in a figure," he was
offered up and also raised from the
dead. Our lives may be made signifi
cant, in that they, too, may be linked
with Christ. Paul exhorts that even
slaves shall do their work, not as unto
their earthly masters, but as unto tho
Lord, "for," says he, "ye serve the
Lord Christ." Our commonest actions
can be done with the same motive as
our highest deeds-"to be well pleas
ing unto him." "The world passe.th
away and the lust thereof; but he that
doeth the will of God abideth forever."

Hiring and Firing.
Personnel is, in fact, the all-import
ant element of plant equipment. Se
lection of employees should rightly
require more study than selection of
boilers and generators. Unfortunate
ly the art and science of hiring is so
young and basic principles yet so
vague that the great majority of com
panies operating plants still continue
to waste enormous amounts of money
and dissipate natural resources in ad
dition to doing a great social injus
tice in this respect. Time honored
habits of "hiring and firing," building
up an organization by "hit and miss"
method, has generally two immediate
results: Men, hired because they did |
not want to starve, perform their
tasks indifferently, merely avoiding
gross neglect and, therefore, the ac
tual efficiency of equipment; and fre
quent changes of employees, either be
cause of their low efficiency or be
cause of a fancy to advance a good
fireman to a position of bad engineer,
result in lack of thoroughness, lack of
pride in their profession, and in ex
tra expense in training unfitted men.
Mrs. Jay McGee, of Steph
envilie, Texas, writes: "For
nine (9) years, 1 suffered with
womanly trouble. I had ter?
rible headaches, and pains in
my back, etc. It seemed as if
I would die, 1 suffered so. At
last, I decided to try Cardui,
the woman's tonic, and it
helped me right away. The
full treatment not only helped
me, but it cured me."
The Woman's Teals
Cardui helps women in time
of greatest need, because it
contains ingredients which act
specifically, yet gently, on the
weakened womanly organs.
So, if you feel discouraged,
blue, out-of-sorts, unable to
do your household work, on |>
account of your condition, stop
worrying and give Cardui a
trial. It has helped thousands
of women,-why not you?
Try Cardui. E-71
