iiy Easy Modes of Preparing
Them, Declares Mrs. A. B. Scott. By MBS. ANNA B. 8GOTT Expert of the Philadelphia ? North American. Is the grape season. How ythey can be done up for the iter, and at slight expense, too. house keepers scarcely realize much grape juice and grape elly help out during th? cold months, when variety In foods is sought after. ;It Is not necessary for me to say ?that' grapes will be plentiful In this j part of the country. Along the Lakei Erie grape belt there has been some talk of the crop being injured by cold, but in the vicinity of Phila delphia there Is an Immense supply just now coming into the market. The most of us do not know how .important the grape Industry Is. In ?'the' Chautauqua district an average ot 7,500 carloads of grapes repre sents the yearly harvest.. From New Jersey, hundreds ot carloads are shipped out. The grape contains from twelve to .twenty-three per cent of sugar, more two per cent of nitrogen and a joodly Quantity of tartaric and malic adds. As a food products Its value is high. During recent years the use of '?ape juice has increased enormous and there are few families that not put up grapes In this form. Europe some physicians send their patients Into the vineyards at vintage time to drink the juice as it comes) the press. The Greeks used irmented grape juice, and the imans boiled down grape juice to le consistency of grape syrup and ' ~ it on their-bread. . making grape juice, the bottles d corks must be sterilized at a high ree of heat for at least fifteen mtes. The juice should be straln l; as clear as possible. Fermenta on in grape juice Is caused by yeast -Id- other spores which resist or nary heat. Following are recipes for grapo Uy, jam, butter and juice: Grape Jelly. . Grape jelly is one of the easy jel r to make, providing the grapes I' not too sweet, and they should tinder ripe. Half green or wild 'grapes with half Concords make a very delicious Jelly. Pick the grapes from stems and wash; put in porcelain lined kettle; boil thirty minutes; mash and boll minues; strain through wire oiner, return to lire, boil rapidly L minutes and skim; put in jelly g and strain. To each cup of ipe juice add one cup of granulat l sugar, which has been warmed in Jm, but putting on plate or platter, ielng careful not to melt. Put in :ettle, stirring until sugar Is dis solved; boil rapidly five minutes, skimming frequently; boll ten min utes In all. Have glass sterilized and hot; pour in Jelly, cover glass with piece of cheesecloth; when cold cover with parafflne until it runs over then cover with lid or paper. Grape Jam. Pick and wash the grapes, put on to boil: boil thirty minutes, pour in strainer and mash through so there will be nothing but the seeds left; return to boiler and to each two cups add one and one-half cups of sugar, or to each four cups add three cups of sugar; boll slowly thirty minutes, stirring frequently and skimming three or four times; put in glass or Jars same as Jelly. This is virtual ly the same as the Jelly, only not clcar. Makes an excellent Jam to use for short cake filling for winter use and is easily and quickly made. A ten or twelve cent basket can be prepared while getting the dinner in the evening and finished next morning right after breakfast. Grape Butter. Pick, wash and pulp the grapes, j Put pulp on to boll and boil fifteen i minutes; put skins in porcelain lined kettle, strain the pulp over the skins, put on fire and boll fifteen minutes. Add three cups of sugar to four cups ot skins and pulp; boll slowly forty minutes or until thick and does not separate. It does not matter how ripe the grapes are, but sometimes the skins are hard and will not cook as quickly as others. Spiced Grapes. Spiced grapes are made same as butter, adding to each quart of grape butter? 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. 1 teaspoon of ground allspice. 1-2 teaspoon ground mace. 1 teaspoon of salt. 1-2 cup good cider vinegar. Boil slowly one hour. This is very good with cold meats or poultry, and It put In glasses or Jars same as Jelly. Grape Juice. To each quart of grapes, after they are picked and washed, add one cup ot water; heat slowly and maBh with wooden spoon and boil fifteen to twenty minutes; strain through coarse piece of cheesecloth. Be sure to press out all the Juice. Put on fire and boil twenty minutes. Be sure all scum has been removed. Add one cup of sugar to each quart of grape Juice, and boll twenty min utes. Clean the bottles and put In wash boiler or large dlshpan; cover with cold water and put on fire; bring to boll, slowly, and boil five minutes (the corks are done the same as bottles); fill the bottles at once and cork; dip tops either In sealing wax or paraffine; put Into cool, dark place for future use. If It is used as a drink, water must be added. This same juice can be used, for gelatine, sherberts, creams and many other desserts for winter use. Always bear in mind' the wholesomeness of grape Juice. Largest Movement in History of Fruit Belts Now in Full Swing. ' MARTINSBURG, Sept. 18.?The largest movement ot early fall apples ill the history of the fruit belts in Berkeley and Frederick counties is now in full swing, and dealers in Oils section declare that by the last of the present week this movement will have reached a total never be fore known in this entire region. While the aggregate crops of Berkeley and Frederick counties will not exceed fifty per cent of last year the early varieties, sach as Grimes Golden, Qreenings, Pippins and Fon athans, will largely exceed the pro -Auction ot the best previous year ad are confidently expected to re in* to the growers in these two counties at least $275,000 by the , end ot this week. .Thus far an aggregate of approx imately 30,000 barrels of Grimes Golden have been packed in Berk eley and Frederick orchards, and have either been shipped directly to ihe markets, or placed in cold stor age for shipment within the next few -weeks. The shipment of Grimes . Golden, according to the estimates of experienced dealers, will reach not less than 50,00 barrels from Berk ley and Frederick counties within he next few days. Of this quantity about 80,000 barrels will have come Cram Berkeley county and 20,000 barrels from Frederick. The prevail ing prices on Grimes Golden have " een from $2.65 to $2.75 a barrel . j" Of the Greenings, Pippins and Jonathans, at least 50,000 barrels 111 have been taken from the or lards of Berkeley and Frederick Mantles by the end of the present iroek, each county producing about 25,600 barrels. The price on these leties is somewhat higher than ties Golden, they bringing age of $3 per barrel, with ready lie' at that figure. ctically all of the Grimes Gol ?, will find their way into the mar ts,of the South, with some into the _?Jdle West. Thousands of barrels if'the Pippins and Greenings will be "tipped to England, while the re ' nder of these and the Jonathans be sent South.

NATIONAL DISH Is Fried Chicken, According to Southerners and Many Hotel Stewards. GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 18. ?Is fried chicken really the national dish? That is what the hotel stew ards say, and they ought to know. Southerners have always held that it could be tasted in its pertectlon only in the South. Can a foreign chef equal a "mammy" in preparing It? With our generouB admixture of races, it might be supposed that a national dish would be impossible in any large sense. It might be baked beans, spaghetti or "hot dog." The national menu has been greatly ex tended by immigration in recent years and the ordinary American family is familiar with all kinds of food of which its ancestors never par took. The stewards ' Intimate, indeed, that the position o( fried chicken is not quite impregnable. We eat more vegetables and salads than ever and less "red meat." This tendency is to be discouraged, especially in sum mer. The favorite salad is lettuce. It is undoubtedly the commonest; but what person of epicurean tastes would prefer lettuce to romalne, es carole of chicory? As for the veget jables which we eat in such quanti | ties, are they mostly tinned or fresh? I Has not the preserving process de stroyed the first fine lyric rapture with which we used to greet the early pea or the tender lima bean? Costing $5,000 Purchased by a West Virginia Oil Operator. MARIETTA, O., Sept. 18.?Be cause he wanted to be sure of having a fitting monument after death, John Dinsmoor, a wealthy retired oil oper ator of Willlamstown, W.

Beneath the statue Is a symbol of the Elks' lodge and under this as epitaph' devised by Dinsmoor, who has passed the three score and ten year mark. The epitaph reads: "Uncle John; his soul was like a star and dwell apart." The date of death is the only thing needed to complete the mon Declares Thomas L. Lewis, FoVmer President of the United Mine Workers. CHARLESTON. Sept. 18.?The fate of the coal Industry in West Virginia hangs in the balance. This ia asserted by all coal opera tors and dealers, leaders of miners' organizations and miners, and is ad mitted by the greater number of big business men not connected with the railroads. Coal men without exception declare that the proposal of the coal carrying roads to boost rates fifteen, cents a ton on all shipments of West Virginia coal -westward will, if made effective, and sustained by the Interstate com merce commission,'spell ruination to the coal industry and great injury to many lines dependent thereon. B'g Roods Concerned. The proposal is that of raising the rate on the big coal hauling roads ?the Chesapeake and Ohio, the Nor folk and Western, the Baltimore and Ohio and the Kanawha, and Michigan? to make the differential between coals mined here and those mined in other states 40 cents Instead of 2G cents. This is an Increase of sixty per cent ?sufficient, Charleston coal operators declare?to shut down at once every coal mine in the Kanawha valley and eventually to close practically every big mine in the state. A committee of operators is now in New York making an appeal to the officials of the Chesapeake and Ohio road, and other committees are be ing raised to appeal to the head men o fthe other big lines to save the in dustry. Wrecking an industry. Thomas L. Lewis, former national president of the United Mine Workers of America and now secretary of the West Virginia Splint and Gas Coal Association declares that the proposed action of the railroad companies could have no effect other than that of wrecking a great industry and destroy ing the haulage business of the roads themselves. "Shall the railroads throttle the continued progress of West Virginia? ?and are the people of the state to he made to suffer the iron hand of a selfish transportation system? "That is the issue in West Vir ginia," sayg Lewis, "as a result of the railroads' attempt to impose this fif teen cent Increase in rates. "But it is not the coal industry alone that must feel the disastrous effects of such an increase; for every industry in West Virginia has devel oped and progreesBed by reason of cheap fuel in some form, and the state, on account of its tremendous coal areas of exceptional value, offers the -best inducement for the develop ment of every kind of industry. Effect Far Beaching, "The proposed advance would at once cripple the mining Industry and retard the development of every other industry in WeBt Virginia. "For this reason every citizen of the state and every person interested in the progress of the state is vitally interested, and should protest against the proposed action of these railroads, which can be nothing but the detri mental to West Virginia and in the interest of other states." Case of Arizona Cited by Trav-j elling Salesman as an Example. TUSCON, Ariz., Sept. 18.?Arizon ians are eating more candy and smok ingTewer cigars since the state went dry according to traveling salesmen. Cigar salesmen say that their bus iness has suffered a tremendous slump since the first of the year. Some of them place their loss as high as fifty per cent. They claim that the abolition of the saloon, and with it the saloon cigar stand, is respon sible. "One would think that men would smoke even more cigars when de prived of liquid stimulants," said one salesman. "They don't, though. I figure that I have lost the business ] that I used to do with the saloon I men. The tobacco retailers not con nected with saloons are doing about the sitme business that they did last year." Travellers for candy manufactur ers report a great increase in the de mand for their wareB. Confection ers tell the same story. In Tuscon, Phoenix and other cities the number of soda fountains and soft drink fetandn has approximately doubled since January 1. and most of them eppear to be doing well.
