A COUNTRY correspondent, who
lives six miles from a railway
and three from tbe nearest gro
cery, has a lamentable talo to tell:
"We are not. strictly speaking 1 , vege
tarians, but we agree with you that It
is not wholesome to eat too much meat.
Moreover, unless we are content to have
salt pork for dinner three times a week,
we must go meatless many times in the
winter. Heavy storms block the roads
emd hinder the butcher from making his
rounds twice weekly. Then, again, we
nke vegetab>s. Our potato bin is well
£Qed and lasts us until late in the
spring. We have turnips and beets and
cabbage. But we get tired of all three!
We used to vary them by 'canned
poods.' and very much to our satisfac
tion. For the last two years we have
heard so many dreadful things about
these same canned things that we have,
as my old Scotch grendmothe-r used to
cay, "Ta'en a scunner against them.'
We feel the TacS of them more than I
can tell. We miss tbe nice corn pua
dlr.gs and' the string beans and toma
toes arid asparagus we used to buy by
the dozen cans and set in goodly order
upon our storeroom shelves ln the fall
to draw upon during the long winter.
Can you help us to a substitute for the
banished provisions, or tell us If all these
things ought really and truly to be
classed as "embalmed foods'?"
2*. E. S. (Pinehurst, Ulster county,
K. V.).
It Is not surprising- that you should
tave been set against preserved foods
by the revelations of the last few years.
I confess to the same dread in my own
ca?e. Tiie able chemical experts who are
kind enough to aid and abet me in the
investigations I have made along the
line of adulteration and chemical treat
ment of meats, vegetables and fruits
have supplied me, in days now, I would
fain hope, gone by, with startling analy
ses of divers natural products designed
for the consumption, and presumably
the nourishment, of human beings— so
startling in seme instances that I have
struck canned meats and a majority of
canned fruits and vegetables from my
lift of household commodities. Hence
the return to the practice of twenty-odd
years ago, of putting up our own pre
serves and pickles and canning all man
ner of eatables for winter up«.
Now. or so I am credibly Informed by
those who claim to be qualified to jspeak
\u25a0with authority upon the subject, the
pure-food law has so far reformed the
abuses of which we have spoken that
it Is quite safe to partake of "canned
goods" that have been put up since the
passage of that law. If artificial means
—the use of chemicals Intended to pre
vent fermentation— are resorted to in
the preparation of such foods for the
market, the manufacturer incurs the
danger of a heavy fine if he neglect to
state the fact In the label upon the can
or jar containing the vegetable or ani
mal substance. This protective measure
Is an unspeakable boon to the house
mother who does not live near enough
to city or town market to obtain the
fresh . vegetables and fruits that are
brought from the South and defy the
interdict of winter.
Before we talk of the proper use of
canned foods, let me remark, with em
phasis and gratitude, that I have ex
cepted tomatoes from the ban placed
upon other artificially preserved vege
tables. Perhaps because the simple

Actual Figures Demanded
TVe are having letters from Marion Har
land on the subject of living chearxr,
on hired girls, on cooking beef tongue and
caXo liver, etc.: but, cay. on the level, why
don't we have something that will be of
benrfit to the people who live ln the Sl2
a-month bouses, and who constitute the
half or more of the oooulation. doing the
actual productive work, as against tbe
process of heating has been found suf
ficient to guard them against decompo
sition, we have not yet detected in cans
of this invaluable vegetable any trace
of mineral preservatives. ' We have used
canned tomatoes freely and fearlessly
throughout the embargo period.
Not one cook in twenty prepares can
ned foods properly for the table. To
this ignorance or carelessness is due a
large proportion Of the suspicion with
which the "tinned stuffs," as they aro
called in England, are regarded by
thousands of caterers and eatsrs. At
their best, they were but an indiflercnt
substitute for fresh fruits, vegetables,
meats and fish. So much the more rea
son why we should bestow Intelligent
care upon them, restoring to them, as
far as possible, the flavor and nutritiv*
properties of their former estate.
To begin with— and to this dictum
there is no exception— the contents of
can or glass Jar should be turned out
into another vessel five or six hours
before it is to be cooked or cq,ten.
Tomatoes, corn, beans, peaches, plums,
spinach, and especially green peas,
should, one and all, be aired to get
rid of the "close" taste imparted by
cooling in hermetically sealed cans.
It may not be unwholesome; it Is un
deniably unpleasant. If I lay stress
upon the necessity that green peas
should be aerated, it is because they'
suffer more from the long- stages ef
airlessness than less delicate edibles.
The slight smoky flavor of canned
French or American canned peas Is
commonly accepted as inseparable
from them when they have been arti
ficially preserved. We all know it,
and most of us submit to it. Some
dislike It so heartily that they never

INTERESTED (Philadelphia).
It would require a whole pajje to an
swer all the queries and criticisms of
our masculine critic. In the prepara
tion of my weekly menus, 1 have hon
estly believed that I was catering for
families of moderate means. I have
never assumed to make out- "menus"
that would feed six people upon 75 cents
a day. I can tell them of food 3 that
will sustain life and keep one in a fair
degree of health at that rate. If I were
to confine my directions to that class,
what of the great multitude of tho
"halfway poor" I have in mind continu

craclizrs and cheese, cookies and tea— he
will fare better than Scotch and English
peasant and as well, so far as materials
go, as the French laborer. The differ
ence between him and the last-named
is that the French wife knows how to
prepare homely fare until it approxi
mates luxury and' the wives of the
rthers do not. Hundreds of American
farmers do not see "butcher's meat"
upon their tables more than once a week,
'•interested" can afford this luxury
upon $5 a week for a family of six. It
will be a "chuck rib," or brisket of
corned beef, or pig's feet, or such bits of
mutlon as the butcher heaps together
at the end of the counter "to sell to for
eigners." as one told me when 1 asked
what tncy were kept for.
"Who know no better than to buy
them!" sneered a woman who over
heard him.

A toss of the head was all the com
ment she made.
I shall probably get tho same, or its
equivalent, from "Interested."
If I have not marie it plain in all
these months and years how the cheap
er cuts may be rendered eatable and
wholesome, I cannot hope to do it in
the compass of one page. Not one
American cook In forty knows how to
make soups that are both palatable and
wholesome. Oibleto, liver, the heads
and hearts and tongues of- calves and

might be compounded from "trimmings"

enjoy as a "pick-up luncheon"?
A Luncheon Dish
Break Into inch lengths half a pound
macaroni or spaghetti, and boll It tender
in salted water. If you have a weak
etoek, so much the better. If stock be.
used, return it to the pot when the
spaghetti is drained. The cereal has en
riched it. Put a layer of spaghetti ln the
bottom of a bakedlsh and strew over It
any minced meat you may happen to
have. Over this put a layer of drained
and chopped canned tomatoes, season-
Jnc each layer with pepper, salt and
onion juice. Fill the dish in this order,
po-jr in enough stock to keep it from
drying, cover with fine crumbs and
bake, covered, for half an hour. Then
brown lightly. We" like the addition of
grated cheese to the uppermost layer,
and now and then omit the meat and
substitute grated cheese.
Any bits of cold cooked meat will
flavor the dish sufficiently with the
touch of savoriness the meat-eater's
palate craves. It is of Italian origin,
and very good when rightly seasoned.
Should any be left, chop it next day
and put Into your soup. Rice may be
used instead of macaroni, if you like.
Straight Talk.
Onions are never dear and are exceed
ingly nutritious; Boil them in two
waters always, 'and if you can ,epar«
enough milk tQ use instead of the sec
ond water, -they are delicious.
Turnips hold too great a percentage
of water to be of value as bone or
brawn or brain makers.' Yet they in
troduce pleasant variety into plain fare
and are liked by many. ,
Carrots are very , nourishing. Cooked
tender and served In \u25a0 a white sauce,
they are wholesome and palatable. They
are more palatable when parboiled, cut
into short lengths , and fried in batter.

at a price that does not proscribe Its ap
pearance weekly upon the table of th»
family of moderate means. Turn it out
five hours before cooking it. Cook in a
double boiler with the too off for half aa
hour: season with a tablespoonful of
butter, salt and paprika to taste, a tea-^
spoonful of sugar, a wee pinch of nut
meg or mace and a tablespoonful of lem
on Juice. Cook one minute and aervc^
garnished with triangles of thin toast. T
If you can spare three tablespoonfuls of
cream, beat into the spinach until you
have a smooth green mass and serve
not forgetting the toast.
The possibilities of tomatoes are b«
yond counting. As on© example of tho
truth of this, take scalloped tomatoes.
Drain off all the liquor that will come
away without pressing, setting It aside
for other purposes. Butter a bakedish
and put a layer of the drained tomatoes
in the bottom. Cover this with a stratum.
of fine crumbs.- season with salt, pepper
and a few drops of onion Juice; sprinkle
lightly with sugar and dot 3 of butter.
Now another layer of tomatoes and
more seasoned crumbs. Fill the- dish in
this order, the last layer being crumbs
dotted rather thickly with butter. Cover
closely and bake half an hour. Then
brown slightly. If the tomatoes have
not been drained too much, enough
moisture will bo left in them to make
the scallop soft. .
The reserved liquor may be made into
soup or into tomato aspic, which, with
a few leaves of lettuce, will supply you
with a delicious salad. Half a dozen
cans of tomatoes may be bought for
60 cents. You may put both, these disiiea
upon your table for 25 cents.
Or. ff you have scraps of any kind of
meat in the refrigerator, drain the to
matoes, chop the meat and mix with a
cupful of boiled rice and the drained to
matoes. Moisten with a little stock or
a left-over of gravy and bake as you
would scalloped tomatoes. Tou hava
then a soup and a meat dish. This. too.
may be done for 25 cents.
In both these cases the> excellence of:
the dishes depends upon seasoning main
ly. Do not think it beneath your dUr^
nity to study effects of combinatioTW
and of flavoring in- cookery. It is b£
these means that you may obtain tho
best results from unpromising mate
