Little Comfort for Candidate In Rea
son Assigned by Wife for Her
Being Confident.
Mr. WIIlIamB, one of five candidates
(or the office of sheriff in one of the
northern counties of Wisconsin, was
making a house-to-house canvass of a
rural district, soliciting votes. Com
ing to the house of Farmer Thompson,
he was met at- the door by the good
housewife, and the following dialogue
ensued :
"Is Mr. Thompson at home?" ,
"No; he has gone to town."
"I am very sorry, as I would have
liked to talk to him."
"Is there anything I can tell him
for you?"
"My name is Williams, candidate for
sheriff, and I wanted to exact a prom
ise from him to vote for me at the
coming election."
"Oh, that will be all right I kndw
he will promise, for be has already
promised four other candidates the
same thing." Norman E. Mack's Na
tional Monthly. '

Pure From Start to Finish.
There Is perhaps nothing In dally use
In the home in which purity Is so Im
portant as It Is In baking powder. On
Its purity depends the purity of the ma
terials used, the success of the bakings,
etc. And possibly the one thing that
has served to make Calumet Baking
Powder so much of a favorite with the
critical cooks of the country, Is the fact
that Calumet Is pure from start to finish.
You can rely on Calumet's purity for
the simple reason that every ounce of
the materials used Is first tested by ex-
?rlenced chemists and then mixed with
he utmost care to Insure its uniformity.
And standing In the can or changes of
weather, etc., cannot alter it In any re
spect. But perhaps the best thing of all, Is
the fact that Calumet never falls. Every
baking In which Calumet Is used, Is sure
to come from the oven as light and as
fluffy as you can wish. This not only
means wholesome, tasty foods but' a
big economy as well. Try Calumet next

Preparation of Corn That Requires
Long Cooking and Watching, but
Is Well Worth It
This is a preparation of corn which
requires long slow cooking. Select
very white and evenly-cracked samp.
Wash it thoroughly and put it to soak
over-night in lukewarm water. Next
day throw that water off and cover
with fresh cold water; bring gradually
to a boll and boil for .five liours. As
the water becomes absorbed add fresh
boiling water from time to time. When
certain the grains are tender through
out drain off any water that remains.
Salt should be added with the last
water poured on so that it may per
meate the samp; allow one tablespoon-
ful to one cupful of Bamp measured
uncooked. Put the samp In a faina
kettle with milk to more than cpver.
Let it cook gently, with the cover oft,
for one hour or until the milk Is ab
sorbed and the samp creamy. Add for
the quantity given one Ablespoonful
of butter. Serve when it melts.
This is an old-fashioned southern
dish easily prepared over a low fire. It
can not swell properly during the
cooking unless it is kept covered with
boiling water.
When any is lef. over it may be
formed into thin cakes, or sliced thin,
cut in regular pieces, dipped in egg
and fine cracker crumbs and baked
brown in the oven. It will be found
Delicacy Not a Difficult Matter to
Make, and It Is Usually Appreci
ated by All.
It is not a difficult matter to make
this delicacy, which is always appre
ciated by young and old. The quant
ity of milk needed may seem exces
sive; for a pound of the cream one and
one-half gallons of good milk is re
quired, but the leftover milk may be
put to many uses, and, after all, the
ordinary family would be satisfied with
much less.
To make this cream strain new milk
Into a large shallow pan until it Is four
or five Inches deep. Leave in a cool
for twelve hours in the summer, for
twenty-four hours In the winter. Do
not disturb It in any way.. Next care
fully carry the pan to the stove and
place over a pot of hot water. The
heating should take at least one-half
hour and the temperature should rise
to 18J' degrees to develop the proper
flavor. It is done when the cream
forms a ring around the pan and is
wrinkled on the top. Let it' stand
twelve hours before skimming.
Sweet Green Peppers Stuffed.
Peel and cut fine enough mild onions
Bermuda or Spanish to measure
one cupful. Steam until very tender,
then mix with them one cupful of
fine stale bread crumbs, one-quarter of
a teaspoonful of lemon Juice, one-half
of a half teaBpoonful of salt, one ta
blespoon of mushroom catsup, two ta
blespoonfuls of finely chopped parsley
and .three tablespoonfuls of butter.
Wipe six medium-sized sweet green
peppers, remove the stem end of each,
also the seeds and white veins. Drop
in boiling water and boil for three min
utes, then drain and dry them. Fill
with the mixture, put close together
In a shallow pan, dot with bits of but
ter and bake in a sharp oven until well
browned. Serve on hot toast.
; Russian Salad.
Mix one cup each cold .cooked car
rot cubes and potato cubes, one cup
cold cooked peas, and one cup cold
cooked beans, and marinate with
French dressing. - Arrange on lettuce
leaves In four sections and cover each
section with mayonnaise dressing.
Garnish two sections with small pieces
of smoked salmon, one Bection with
finely chopped whites of hard-boiled
eggs and one section with yolks of
hard-boiled eggs forced through a
strainer. Put small sprigs of parsley
In lines dividing section. Good to look
at, fine to eat, and, best of all, not
much work.
Asparagus Stewed.
' Cut the points as far as they are
perfectly tender Into pieces not more
than one-half an inch in length. Wash
them and throw into boiling salted
water. When they are tender take
but asparagus and lay aside for a few
minutes. Have some pieces of toasted
bread. Dip them into the water In
which the asparagus was boiled. But
ter them and place in dish, laying as
paragus on top. Pour; a little milk
Into saucepan. Thicken with a little
flodr and add a piece of butter and
salt to taste. Pour the mixture over
the asparagus and serve very hot.

candy rule to make corn balls? It
makes splendid ones. Discard the hard
corn, that did not pop out, have In big
pan and pour the candy over and stir
In as fast as possible. Then form in,
balls, but one must work very quick,
else tbey will crisp up so one cannot
handle them. Don't wet or butter the
bands. It is not necessary.
To Renew Chiffon.

A While for a Time.
A Cleveland school teacher writes
that she asked her class what was
the difference between the expres
sions, "a while," and "a time," says
the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Nobody
seemed to have any Idea on the sub
ject. Finally the light of intelligence
was seen to shine in the eyes of one
little boy, and the teacher called upon
him to save the intellectual honor of
the class.
"I know, teacher!" he cried eager
