MODEL TOMATO PATCU IX GIRLS' CANNING CLUB GARDEN.
TIIK number of Uncle Sam's proteges grows dally as the popularity of
bin movement for the formation of girls' -canning and gardening
clubs grows. This movement Is expwted to do much to keep girls
on the farm, since It points out to thera a way of making more money
In pleasnnt, healthful surroundings than they could tolling long hours dally in
a stuffy shop or factory in the city.
The Interest which the government takes In these clubs Is shown by the
fact that it has offered substantial prizes, provided competent teachers and
compiled useful advice to stimulate interest In the clubs.
Last year the work was a great success. It Is hoped that this year It may
be even more iopular.
The tomato canning season now being at hand, the experts of the depart
ment of agriculture have Issued some suggestions which are so practical that
the housewife or any one who Is Interested in putting up tomatoes may find
them useful. Some of them are as follows:
There are a number of practical and economical ways of canning toma
toes. The method depends largely upon the type of canning outfit or device
available, kind of Jars or containers to be filled and purpose for which, the
product Is to be used.
The method In common use Is the one known as the open kettle method,
the product leln? cooked In an open kettle over the fire and then transferred
while hot into the Jars and sealed at once. This method Is too laborious and
uncertain to be of practical use, and only a limited number of housekeepers
succeed in completely sterilizing the product so as to keep It from spoiling.
A second method Is the one known as the 'fractional or double steriliza
tion method," where the product is cooked or sterilized two or three days from
forty minutes to one hour each day. This method is used with either a kettle,
oven, wash boiler or commercial hot wtUer outilt and is quite Impractical from
the standixjlnt of a busy and already overworked housewife.
The best method known Is the co'.d packed method of canning, where the
tomatoes are carefully graded for size and color, selecting only sound and ripe
tomatoes; then scalded for about a minute and a half In boiling water to
lc -on the fckln; then immediately plunged Into cold water and cores and skins
removed. The tomatoes are then packed well Into the Jars, adding one level
tta.sjxKmfnl of salt; the rubbers and cap are pat in place and the product
sterilized In closed containers. If glass top Jars are used the top wire should
be clamied In place and the lower clamp raised.
If a wash .boiler, hot water bath outfit or any homemade device Is used
the product Is cooked for thirty minutes, removed and allowed to cool after
;he Jars are tightened and inverted to test the Joints. With water seal outfits
the ppMluct Is cooked for twenty-two minutes before rcmovaL Steam pressure
Jevi require but sixteen minutes when using from five to fifteen pounds of
steam. The aluminium pressure cooker outfits will completely sterilize the
product in twelve minutes by using from ten to tldrty pounds of steam pres

Scant Frills Are the Rule on Lingerie
Very dainty are ruffles of net, which launder beautifully and which retain
their filmy softness more satisfactorily than lace after being washed and
Ironed. When laces are used-at all the finer patterns of Valenciennes,- Nor
mandle and shadow lace are selected. Cluny and fillet are used sparingly,
but one sees little of the once adored Irish crochet these days.
As a rule, ruffles are taboo on modern lingerie, but here and there one
sees a soft scant little frill of net lace on drawers or an equally soft scant

longer obtains. Once and an eighth Is all that is allowed now, and in some
cases. whecheer machine embroidered flouncing Is used, the flounce is set on
without any gathers at all, the embroidered, scalloied edge suggesting a ruffle,
when, in fact there is no fullness whatever.

Gems In Terse
REAL AND IDEAL.
THIS life is a wonderful thing.
As we who are living it know.
For some of us chuckle and sing
YVhHe others are weighted with
There's nothing as bright as It seems
And little as dark as It looks.
Yet it Isn't so vexing
And strange and perplexing
And queer as they make It in books.
The world is a wonderful place
Whose marvels will never be known.
To some full of beauty and grace.
To others a horror In stone.
There's magic in sunshine find cloud
And music in breezes and brooks.
But perhaps it's as well, on
- The whole, we don't dwell on .
The world as it's painted in books.
And love's a mysterious force.
With springs in abysses profound.
That guides every star in its course
And lightens the earth's weary round.
It batters all barriers down
That separate nobles and cooks.
Yet in life Master Cupid
Is feeble and stupid
Compared with bis portrait in books.
The girl is a treasure whose worth
Twere vain to attempt to declare
There's nothing that's precious on earth
That can with her value compare.
She charms by her science and art
And lures by-the dainties she cooks.
But goodby to her lover
If he should discover
The goddess depicted In books.
MARRIED AND GOING AWAY.
I AM married and going away.
' Goodby to the dear old home.
Goodby to girlhood's happy years,
And welcome the joys to come.
Do not chide me that 1 weep.
Weep on my wedding day.
Life will never be quite the same;
I'm married and going away.
I'M glad and willing to go
But a bride must have her cry.
There are so many cherished friends
That 1 must bid goodby.
So much that 1 dearly love
That I leave forever today!
What memories rest on everything
When one's married and going away!
HOW happy was I that eve
When Harry called me aside
For a stroll on the moonlit lawn.
And I went with happy pride, -For
his. eyes were burning bright.
I knew-wbat he meant to say
By his grave and tender voice.
Now we're married and going away.
SWEET words he spoke that night.
The lawn grew doubly dear.
The beautiful lawn I've loved
For many a happy year.
And I gave my promise true.
A girl loves not for a day.
Ah, yes, the world is bright and new!
I am married and going away.
KISS me, mother. I'll dry my tears.
I fear not my future life.
My grief is In leaving you and home.
My husband will love bis wife.
And I shall be happy, I-know.
The carriage is ready, you say.
So shower the rice and toss the shoes.
- We're married and going away.
