BAKED BEANS AS THEY WERE
AXD ARE
It may be the impression of some
people that baked beans grow in a
cen. but this is not so. They are still
to be found on farm tables, for there
is nothing that stays by a hard-work
ing man better than beans; in lumber
camps they have them twenty-one
times a week. But possibly the stage
farmer would not recognize them,
for they do not always come in a
beanpot any more.
The beanpot is an inheritance from
• our far-away, perhaps prehistoric an
cestors; it is the heavy, brown crock-
I ery glazed only on the inside, that
I was made by potters in Europe be-
Ifore the days of Rome. It is not
necessary, however, to the tastiness of
baked beans and it is a horrible thing
I to wash—heavy, clumsy, with a grime
i that sticks, and does not show. In
' many up-to-date farmhouses beans
I are now baked in an ordinary enam
i eled ware pan holding anywhere from
| two quarts up to the capacity of the
i family. The pan should, of course,
i be deep in proportion to its width.
1 All that is necessary is to parboil the
j beans rather longer than was nec
• essarv when they were cooked all day
iin the earthen pot. and then bake
j them slowly, covered, until they are
I nearly done, after which they are
! browned to make the crust on top.

Oldest Art Recorded
bq Work of Needle
Court* of Anrient Tlmen Adorned By
Royal \Vomfß'« Embroidery
Embroidery Is the oldest means of
artistic expression recorded in history.
Great ladies of the courts of the an
cient world embroidered scenes por
traying the deeds of their heroes. Ac
cording to Homer Penelope threw
upon I lysses as he denarted for Troy
an embroidered garment of gold cloth
on which she had pictured with needle
incidents of the chase.
Older even than that are the direc
tions found in the Bible, Exodus, 2Sth
chapter. 4th and sth verses in which it
is directed that in preparing Aaron
and' his sons for the priest » office they
shall be provided with "a broidered
coat, a mitre and a girdle and they
shall take gold and blue and purple
and scarlet and fine linen." Again in
the 30th verse of the 23th chapter of
Exodus it is ordered: "And thou shalt
embroider the coat of fine linen, and
thou shalt make the mitre of fine linen,
and thou shalt make the girdle of
needlework."
Embroidered work in church deco
ration and in the ministers' vestments
are in great favor to-day. Many rec
tors are wholly supplied with hand
somely embroidered vestments by their
parishioners. They are thus saved a
large sum of money and furthermore
receive valuable tokens of the esteem
In which their people hold them.
Embroidered pieces always find
ready sale at church bazars. In fact
there is hardly a place where embroid
ery Is not available in these days and
every young woman should be taught
its principles.
'Patterns of the very latest design
by which any woman i-an make gar
ment*, napery or articles of home
decoration are provided by this paper
in The World Famous Embroidery
Outfit. A coupon plan is provided so
that regular readers may secure the
patterns without difficulty. Add to
three coupons Cone appearing in the
paper every day) sixty-eight cents to
cover cost of handling. With mail or
ders the sum enclosed should be sev
enty-five cents as postage and pack
ing amounts to seven cents.
The pattern outfit In this extension
of our woman's feature departments
includes more than 450 exclusive de
signs. a set of the best hardwood em
broidery hoops. a highlv polished
bone stiletto, a package of specially
selected needles of assorted sizes, a
gold-tipped bodkin and complete in
structions for making all the fancy
stitches, each stitch being illustrated
and clearly explained.
A UNIQUE BIBLE CHARACTER
One of the few men in the Bible
who have nothing recorded against
them is Joseph of Artmathea. Every
one of the evangelists has a good word
to say for Joseph. One says he "was
an honorable counselor." another that
he "was a just man." another that he
was "a rich man." another that he was
a "secret disciple." Only two of the
evangelists speak of the birth of
Christ; but all four of them erect a
monument to Joseph of Arimathea.
When he became a disciple we are not
told. Dr. Andrew Bonar, of Scotland
says he can just Imagine that Nico
demus may have been moved by Jo
seph of Arimathea to believe in Christ.
At all events. Xicodemus didn't come
out very boldly himself: he didn't get
hie discipleship out*very clear. They
were both members of the Sanhedriri,
but It Is evident that none knew that
Joseph was a secret disciple until a
certain night.—The Christian Herald.

AMERICAN SHOES IX CVBA
Although about 80 per cent, of the
shoes used tn Santiago de Cuba and
throughout this consular district is of
American manufacture, the demand,
on account of their superior quality
and style in comparison with those of
Spanish. Austrian, or Fren<.«i make,
is constantly increasing.
During the fiscal year ending June
30. 1914, there were imported into
Cuba 4,010,116 pairs of shoes, the
valuation of which was $4,249,681. Of
this quantity 3.259.690 pairs came
from the United States, which were
valued at $3,398,940.
The rate of duty on shoes from
countries other than the United States
is 13 per cent, ad valorem, and in
addition, per pair, 19.5 cents for men's
shoes.l 3 cents for women's shoes, and
6.a cents for children's shoes; im
ports from the United States are en
titled to a reduction of 30 per cent,
of the duty, which would make the
rate 9.1 per cent, ad valorem plus
13.65 cents. 9.1 cents, and 4.55 cents
per pair, respectively.
The older inhabitants still cling to
the old Spanish style, but the younger
people in particular prefer the Amer
i ican styles.
The demand Is for both high and
low tan. patent leather, kid and white
! shoes. The high shoe is used more
! extensively throughout the sugar dis
. trlets, and the low shoes are popular
iin the cities. Th'ere is practically no
demand for rubber overshoes.
There are three shoe factories on
the island. In which only styles for
! Cuba are made, and these exclusively
I for women and children. In these
i factories Goodyear welting machinery
is not used. All of the sole leather
used in Cuba is of domestic manu
facture. but all of the uppers are im
ported, principally from the United
States. There are several wholesale
and retail shoe stores In Santiago. The
retail stores are attractive and com
pare favorably with similar stores in
the United States. No one-price sys
tem is employed, however, and the
prices of shoes vary solely according
to appearance.
August Furniture Sale
A Record Breaker For Low Prices
A wonderful sale for money saving possibilities. All our previous efforts have been smashed
by placing our entire furniture stock in this sale under the heaviest reductions we have ever
known.
EVERY REDUCTION A GENUINE ONE
We invite your careful comparison of our goods and prices with those of other stores. We
know that we can save you money. We want you to see and convince yourself of the truth of
our statement.
If you are interested in furniture you will simply do yourself an injustice if you do not visit
our store this month and see the values we have to offer you, before purchasing elsewhere.
CASH OR
Our prices are based on an extremely low cash business system but for the benefit of, those
who find it inconvenient to pay cash and who wish to take advantage of the low prices this month,
we will submit a very liberal and easy-payment plan.
BROWN & CO., The Bi ?2nT™TL F «,° i,her '
Comets Predicted War,
Belief of Superstitions
(Correspondence of Associated Press)
Berlin —In the light of the ancient
superstition that comets, particularly
an unusual number of them, presage
disaster and war, astronomers have
recently been calculating the number
that have made their appearance from
late in 1913 until the present time.
They have been unusually frequent,
apparently, from which fact the su
perstitious are taking comfort.
The real "war comet," says the as
tronomers, was that of Delevan, dis
covered by him in December, 1913.
This body was of unusual size and
brilliancy, and at its zenith could be
made out with the naked eye. It dis
appeared early this year, and prob
ably will not be seen again for six or
seven years. The astronomers cau
tion against taking this as an indica
tion that the war will last that long.
One of the first to be seen in 1913
was "Enck's comet," which first was
noted in 1786, but not definitely
placed tintil 1818. It makes its ap
pearance once every three and a third
years, but In 1914 was late. Close on
the heels of this expected "guest"
came some that were not expected,
however.
On May 16, 1914, Rudolph Paete
reports, Zlatinsky discovered a comet
like star, possessing the brilliancy of
a star of 12.5 magnitude. It was given
the name of Neupmin. Then came
the Krltjing comet, of comparatively
little brilliancy, and then Campbell's
comet was announced from America.
The first comet of 1915 was that of
Mellish, also discovered in America,
which first appeared as a star of 10
magnitude and attained its maximum
in June with a magnitude of a fourth
class star.
VACATION AT SEASHORE

Wants Restrictions
on Foreign Students
(Correspondence of Associated Press)
Cologne—With the complete figures
of the number of students from neu
tral foreign states who visited Ger
man universities during the last se
mester, now at hand, the Koelnische
Zeitung, foreseeing a tremendous in
flux when peace shall have come, de
cides that some restriction should be
placed on foreigners in the interests
of German students.
Shortly before the war there was
such a large number of Russians at
the University of Halle that the
would-be German students could find
no place for themselves. Such a thing
must never happen again, the Koel
nusche declares, in arguing against un
restricted admission to the German in
stitutions of learning. It also cites the
case of the Russian student at the
University of Berlin, suspected of
espionage at the outbreak of the war,
who openly shouted words of con
tempt of all things German. This
should teach a lesson for the future,
the paper declares.
Notwithstanding the war, the Uni
versity of Berlin had, during the se
mester, no less than 1,438 students
from foreign countries, including Aus
tria. The majority were Swiss, Rou
manian, Bulgarian, Greek and Tur-
Kish. Only a few Americans were
left, principally, the Koelnische sug

DAIRY PRODUCTION OF ALBERTA
[Consul Samuel C. Reat, Calgary, Al
berta Province. Canada. July 13.]
The dairy production of the Prov
ince of Alberta Is valued at $10,500,-
000, according to a recent report
made to this office by the dairy com
missioner.
With the exception of a negligible
quantity of fancy cheese made in a
small way the dairy production of Al
berta is marketed in the form of milk,
cream, butter and Cheddar cheese.
The creamery butter output was
5,450,000 pounds £nd the cheese made
In factories amounted to thirty-five
tons. No provincial figures are avail-
able covering the butter and cheese
made in home dairies.
As the dairy industry is still in its
infancy in Alberta, it has not been
found practicable to operate factories
for the production of condensed milk,
malted milk, sugar of milk, or milk
powder.
There is little demand for condensed
milk in Canada. According to cus
toms returns for the fiscal year end
ing March 81, 1915, the total imports
of condensed milk amounted to only
109,937 pounds and valued at $8,424.
Practically all the imports of con
densed milk come from the United
States.
