PROBLEM OF CHANGE IN MENL
IS A BIG ONE. Many Combinations of Vegetablei with Sauces May Be Utilized By the Dweller in Iso lated Places. BY JESSICA E. BESACK. Director Department of Domestic Sci ence and Art, National Corn Exposition, Omaha, Neb. The getting of a dinner every day in the year is bound to become mo notonous unless care and thought is given not only to the selection and preparation of the food, but also to the ones by whom it Is to be eaten. It is folly to cater to the tastes oi healthy individuals, who should eat anything placed before them. On th6 ( Qther hand it is the frail one who should always have attention. The large markets afford variety enough at any season of the year, but it is the housewives in the small vil lages and on the farms who complain of its lack. Here fresh vegetables and fruits are out of the question and the problem of a change becomes serious. Vegetables lend themselves to many combinations and may be so treated by pungent sauces or dressings as to almost lose their original flavors. Potatoes alone will give an almosi endless variety. A hot salad that will go nicely with any meat dish may be made quickly, and when once eaten will destroy all taste for a cold salad ever after. Hot Potato Salad.—It is made of hot mashed potatoes; season these with butter, pepper and salt; add a hot boiled dressing (with or without the addition of sugar); when thoroughly mixed with the potatoes care being taken to get it moist enough, but not too much so, add chopped onions and a bit of celery or celery salt, and serve hot. Hard boiled eggs may be added, but the salad is good without. Stuffed Cabbage.—For this a well shaped head of cabbage should be used. Parboil and cut out as much of the center as desired. Enough sau sage to fill the cavity will be needed. To this add a small onion and a piece of ham one inch square, mil ed fine; a little chopped parsley; a bit of bay leaf; salt and pepper to taste. Pack into the cabbage head, tie in a cloth tightly and boil or steam. A slice of bacon may be added if desired, for further flavor. This is an old Creole recipe and an excellent change in the preparation of cabbage. Cabbage a la Creme. One large, firm cabbage, an onion with one clove, half an ounce of but ter. three tablespoonfuls of cream, and seasoning. Wash the cabbage well, cut it in quarters and put it in a pan of boiling water to which salt has been added, and an onion stuck with one clove. Boil the cabbage till tender, drain well, chop it finely and return it to the pan with the cream, butter and seasoning. Mix and heat it well. The onion is removed before chopping the cabbage. Heap the cab bage in a hot vegetable dish and serve. Cinderella Cake. Two eggs, one cupful of sugar, one nnd a quarter cupfuls of flour, one gill gold water, one teaspoonful lemon juice, one teaspoonful baking powder, one tablespoonful chocolate, one-half glass jelly. Beat yolks of eggs with sugar, add chocolate, and beat in white of eggs, lemon juice, water, flour and baking powder. Beat four minutes. Bake in two pans in moderate oven 18 min utes. When done spread with jelly and ice with chocolate icing. Vinegar for Prunes. Prune pies are improved by adding one teaspoonful of vinegar to each pie. Prunes are rather flat tasting, so the vinegar cuts the sweetness. Cauliflower Salad. Boil a cauliflower in salted water till tender, but not overdone; when cold cut up neatly in small sprigs. Beat together three tablespoonfuls of oil and a teaspoonful of Tarragon vin egar, with pepper and salt to taste; the dish may be very slightly rubbed with garlic if liked, arrange the pieces of cauliflower on it, strew over some capers, a little Tarragon, chevril and parsley, all finely minced, and the least bit of dried thyme and marjo ram. Pour the oil and vinegar over and serve. Renewing an Old Carpet. Remove furtniture and open win ows wide, choosing a very clear day iweep the carpet well, take a pail oi farm water and naphtha soap and s rush. Scrub the carpet as you woulc bare floor and wipe with a cloth lhange the water often. This scrub ing must be done early in the morn ag. If the carpet is worn at the cen er or near it, rip down the centei earn, turn the carpet and place the Ipped edges to the wall. Use carpet bread to sew up the ripped seama. Kidney Disease Shows Many Painful and Unpleasant Symptoms. George S. Crowell, 1109 Broadway, Helena, Mont., says; "I was troubled with a disordered condition of the kid neys, some backache and irregular pass ages of secretions. At times I was obliged to get up out of bed at night, and the urine was unnatural in appearance. On the advice of a friend I procured Doan's Kidney Pills and began using them. This remedy helped me at once, strengthened my kidneys and corrected the disordered condi tion." Remember the name—Doan's. Sold by all dealers. 50 cents a box, Foster* Milbura Co., Buffalo, N. Y. A BOY TO ADMIRE. &.jj /ill i n \ \ Gallant Bob (slipping from his fa ther's knee in the car, to lady)— Won't you take my place, madam? Embarrassing. Not only the houses of the Mex icans, but whatever you admire is j'ours. If you express a sentiment of approbation of anything, the own er at once says: "Senor, it is yours;" but he simply intends something flat tering, and you are therefore not ex pected to accept anything that is of fered to you. An amusing story is told of Sir Spencer St. John, the Eng lish ambassador, which illustrates how this national courtesy often provokes embarrassment. Sir Spencer, who is a gallant old bachelor, was prom enading with some ladies in the park, when he met a nurse girl with a bright-eyed baby. The ladies stopped to admire the little one, and Sir Spen cer asked whose child it was. "Senor, it is your own," replied the nurse, with a courtesy. Sir Spencer has never in quired as to the parentage of pretty children since. Undoubtedly Not. Capt. Jerome, while visiting Col. lligginson, took a derringer from the table, and asked: "This thing load ed?" But before the colonel could reply the weapon was discharged, the bullet tearing away one of the fingers of the visitor. The colonel, who is widely known on account of his ex treme politeness, bowed gracefully, and rejoined; "Not now, my dear captain." Good Reason for Marrying. A young couple developed such in compatibility of temper that six years after marriage they carried their difficulties to the divorce court. Their little Cherry was very much concerned through all the trouble. "Well," she said, thoughtfully, "when I grow up I should never marry if it wasn't that I want a father for my children,"—Success Magazine. CAREFUL DOCTOR Prescribed Change of Food Instead of Drugs. It takes considerable courage for a doctor to deliberately prescribe only food for a despairing patient, instead of resortifig to the usual list of med icines. There are some truly scientific phy sicians among the present generation who recognize and treat conditions as they are and should be treated regard less of the value to their pockets. Here's an instance: "Four years ago I -was taken with severe gastritis and nothing would stay on my stomach, so that I was on the verge of starvation. "I heard of a doctor who has a sum mer cottage near me—a specialist from N. Y., and as a last hope, sent for him. "After he examined me carefully he advised me to try a small quantity of Grape-Nuts at first, then as my stom ach* became stronged to eat more. "I kept at it, and gradually got so I could eat and digest three teaspoon fuls. Then I began to have color in my face, memory became clear, where be fore everything seemed a blank. My limbs got stronger and I could walk. So I steadily recovered. "Now, after a year on Grape-Nuts I weigh 153 lbs. My people were sur prised at the way I grew fleshy and strong on this food."

Recipe That Breaks a Cold In a Day and Cures Any Curable Cough. "Mix half ounce of Concentrated pine compound with two ounces of glycerine and half a pint of good whiskey; shake well each time and use in doses of a teaspoonful to a ta blespoonful every four hours." These ingredients can be obtained from any good druggist or he will get them from his wholesale house. The Concentrated pine is a special pine product and comes only in half ounce bottles, each enclosed in an air tight case, but be sure it is labeled "Concentrated." . New England Pie. Some poor dweller in the benight ed beyond of Chicago asks what a real New England pie is like. It probably will not help him to be told, but if he means apple, it is like an essay by Emerson liquefied with the music of Massenet and spiced with the cyni cisjn of Shaw; if he means pumpkin, it is like some of Gounod's music heard in a landscape all sun and flow ers. It is too early yet to describe 1 the mince pies of 1909, but last year's j —and last year was not an extraor- j dinary good year—were like an in- ; crease in salary, and a present from j home arriving on the day when one's conscience was behaving itself.—Bos- \ ton Globe. Suspicious. The father of Judge W. II. Wadhams had a chicken-coop and a dog and a stable hand. It began to look to Mr. Wadhams as though some one had dis covered the combination. So he kept the coop and the stable hand, but he got a new dog. Next day the bent old negro who groomed the Wad hams' horses came to him. "You los' you affection foh me, boss?" he asked. "No, Scipio," said Mr. Wadhams. "I like you as well as ever." "Then," said Scipio, peevishly, "w'yn't you tie Old Rover in de chicken-coop, 'stid of dat new dorg?" Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the dis eased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed. Deaf ness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condi tion, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO.. Toledo, O.

The extraordinary popularity of fine white goods this summer makes the choice of Starch a matter of great im portance. Defiance Starch, being free from all injurious chemicals, is the only one which is safe to use on fine fabrics. Its great strength as a stiffen er makes half the usual quantity of Starch necessary, with the result of perfect finish, equal to that when the goods were new. Honor Where Honor Is Due.
