The time for servlirg wild duck' Is at
hand and the inexperienced housewife
presented with" a brace
to dress and took '' will'
welcome ii few gugges
ttons. s First, remove
some of the down with
out exposing . the . skin,
cut oH the-, wings If
they are to he saved,
I'ut a pound or two of
v paraflin Into a. dish
deep and; wide enough to nearly im
merse, the duck. Melt ' the " paraflin
and, while it Is still hot hut not boiling,
dip In the duck, turning well to see
that every part Is well covered with
paraffin. ; Now lay out In the air to
cool. When the paraflin la hard, not
hefore, beg'n to peel on the feathers.
If the dipping has heen well done the
feathers will come oft like a glove
pulled from the hand, leaving the deli
cate licsh without a sign of a pin
feather. Now they may be drawn and
trussed, ready for the roasting pan.
Those who enjoy the wild, gamey flavor
of the duck do not wish to have it de
stroyed by any stuffllng that Is at all
highly seasoned. Some use a bunch of
celery, or an onion, while others enjoy

Apple and Bread Stuffing. To three
Cupfuls of bread,1 broken In bits, add
three apples, pared and cot In small
bits, two and one-half tablespoonfuls of
onion, chopped,' ;orie teaspoonful of
sage,' two tablespoonfuls of melted but

teaspoonful of pepper ; mix all together

now ready for the, oven. , Cover, the
breast and legs with slices of fat salt
pork and cook In a very hot oven,
basting every five minutes with the
drippings In the pan. Bake 30 minutes.
Tame duck requires, twice the time for
cooklug. Those who wish to remove
some of the fishy, or wild flavor, par
boll the ducks In water with a spoonful
of Vinegar. ... , ,
Salads which are appropriate to

any mildly acid fruit in combination.
Olive sauce Is a great favorite and
wild plum, currant or green grtpe jelly
'should accompany a duck course. A

quickly until done to suit the taste.

, SAVORY DISHES.
With a little thought and planning
almost any of our common foods may
be changed Into

CARE AND ACCURACY DEMANDED '
i: "IN - WEIGHING HAY FOR MARKET
Accurate Weights Can Be Obtained
Working Order and the Load Is in
(Prepared by the United Statea Department
A great Beat tiouhtCand mone
tary lo 'sustained by producer and
shippers In- marketing hay has beeu
found by the bureau of markets and
crop estimates, United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, to be due to
Weighing by the Bale.
In several- sections of the country
It is the custom to weigh liay by the
bale at the time for baling a.nd to note
the weight upon a tag made of card
board or, other convenient material at
tached to the bale beneath one of the
bale ties... When weighing by,, this
method great care should be taken to
weigh the hay, accurately. During the
rush of baling operations sufficient
time 4s frequently not allowed for the
scales to come to a balance and there
tnay be as much as ten pounds dif
ference - between the actual -and ; the
Special care "should also be taken In
writing the correct weight upon the
tag, say the bureau's specialists. It
Is the common practice In some sec
tions to use only numbers ending In
0 .or 5 In recording the weight, and
to give or take from the actual weight
a. sufficient amount to make a number
with such an ending. For example,
the weight of a bale weighing 67
pounds Is written as Co pounds and
.that of one weighing 68 pounds as 70
pounds. 1 The tendency, however, Is
"to take" more frequently , than . "to
give," so i that it Is a better practice
tat state the actual , weight, upon , the
- Another practice which Is often
charged back tb the producer In low
er! prices or In weight claims, dispro
portionate to the actual loss, Is the
use at a much later date of tag
weights placed upon the hay at the
time of baling. Unless hay has been
thoroughly . cured and has , been In
the mow or stack for a. considerable
time there is likely to be a loss In
weight while hay Is In storage after
baling, due to additional loss of mois
ture. Each purchaser desires, and has
a right to obtain, the actual quantity
of hay for which he pays. If bales
are short of the weight specified upon
the tags there are grounds for a claim,
either In the form of a price conces
sion or of a weight claim. In either
case the adjustment of the claim is
likely to be less economical to the
producer than the actual rewelghing
of the hay. The producer or shipper
should be prepared to prove that the
weight of the hay at the time of sale
is correct and as Indicated upon the
Careless weighing on wagon Scales
causes ns much difficulty as careless
weighing by any other method. One
Of the principal causes of unsatisfac
tory weights upon wagon scales Is lack
of proper care of the scales and of
the necessary attention to keep them
In '-repair and in good .working order.
Hasty Conclusions Should
Cautiously Avoided. -

In making use of the results of a
year's cost accounts for the purpose
of perfecting the organisation of the
farm, hasty conclusions should not be
drawn. Sometimes a positive decrease
In profits may ensue If an enterprise
be dropped, because, taken alone, It
has failed to pay. Cows, for Instance,
may . not be showing a net profit, but
If all the cows were wld there mignt

care should be taken to see that they

Care must be taken also to see that
the load Is In proper position upon
tiie scales. The load should not blud
upon the scale box or building, and
if the team exerts any effect upon tlie
load it should be unhitched.
'..When obtaining the tare weight the
weigher should be certain that the
wagon -contains the same equipment
as when the gross weight was ob'
tained. A good rule Is to remove ev
erything but the necessary equipment
from the load before weighing.. -
Keep Bale Cheek When Loading.
,If the producer or shipper loads the
hfty directly into the1 cars care Is espe
cially necessary to compute the total
weight correctly. Loads are rrequent
It distributed In two or more cars
because' of the variation In the qual
ity of the hay. If the bales are
tagged, a careful record should be
kept of the bales placed In each car.
If not tagged, the part of the load
placed in each car should be weighed
separately. A careful check of the
total number of bales placed In each
car should also be kept bo that the
shipper.,, may have the proper data
upon wnlch to base a claim snould
any loss occur while the hay is moving
The following suggestions, if fol
lowed, will, greatly assist in eliminat
ing some of the troubles caused by
improper weighing methods: ,
When using tag weights record rho
actual current weight. '
Have wagon scales In proper adjust
ment and balance.
See that wagon contains same equip
ment when weighing both the gros
and tare weight.

keep careful record of hay loaded In
Always keep a bale recoru, together
with a weight record, of each car.

lost If the cows were sold and noth

The fact that the hogs or the corn
crop bring In the most net money dur
ing the season is no reason for assum
ing that all the activities of the farm
In the future should be devoted solely
to hogs or corn. It may be that the
keeping of cows Is partly responsible
for making the hogs so profitable, or
that the growing of wheat, clover, or
other crops in rotation with corn
makes the latter crop much more prof
ttable than It would have been If

SUNSHADES FOR LUCKY DOGS
Innovation That Was Brought About
,,by,the Protracted Spell of Un
J i usually Hot Weather.
One of the quaintest Innovations of
I the recent heat wave In London was
the ( introduction of sunshades for
dogs. 'These consisted of light crepe-de-chlne
protections suspended over
the animals' necks by light wire
The "lucky" animals whose masters
or mistresses bought the sunshades
did not seem so pleased with them as
perhaps the donors had hoped, re
marked London Answers. ',
One dog found the heat so oppres
sive that he sought the shelter of -a
railway tunnel on the Highbury tube.
Here he was, however, so frightened
by , the continual passing of trains
that he shrank Into a dark corner arid
remained there for two days, until
his master, on the information of :a
railway man, fetched him.
