It cau be made from an ordinary dry goods packing box. Placing the Shelves. A box 2d by 20 by 20 inches is a convenient size. About 10 inches from the bottom of the box a shelf made of slats or strips of wood rests on cleats fastened to tho sides of the box. second shelf is placed four inches above the lower one. The shelves cau be removed when cleaning the box Below tho lower shelf n sheet of gal vanized Iron slightly wider than the shelf is inserted. It is curved in or der to make it slip in and stay in place securely. This prevents scorching of the lower shelf when a lamp is placed below, and also helps to distribute the heat more evenly. The door is hinged and fastened with a thumb-latch or hook and staple. Several small holes are bored in the lower and upper parts of the sides and ia the top of the box to promote cir culation of air. A cork which has been bored . through the center to ad mit a straight thermometer is inserted in one of the holes in the top of the box. A Fahrenheit chemical thermom eter that registers as high as 100 de grees can be used. Such a thermome ter may be ordered through a hard ware dealer or directly from an Instru ment dealer. Make Safe From Fire. To avoid all danger of fire, the box should be lined with asbestos or tin when a kerosene lamp is used for heating the box. If an electric light is used, the lining is not necessary. A lG-candlepower light will heat the box nicely. A small and inexpensive night lamp is placed in the bottom of the box and a shallow pan of water is placed on the lower shelf so that the air in the box will be kept moist. The bow l of sponge or pans of dough are placed on the upper shelf. The temperature of the box should bo Filter Peanut Oil at Home. Unrefined peanut oil can be pre pared for household use by filtering through ordinary filter paper obtain able at drug stores. A Georgia woman, the wife of an oil miller, had been paying her grocer nearly $2 a gallon for cooking oil while her hus band sold his unrefined oil to a re finery for about $1.20 a gallon. She sent a small sample of the oil from her husband's mill to the bureau of chemistry of the United States depart ment of agriculture with the request that, if possible, she be told of a meth od by which it could be made suitable for household use. The filter paper L methsjdv -p , which came to the department later tho success of the method was de scribed as "surpassing my best ex-pectntions.' Sour Cream Salad Dressing. Potatoes can be used to advantage in many ways in the school lunch. Po tato sahvl is one wny. The attractive ness of the salad depends largely on the dressing used. A good dressing can be made as fellows : i teasroenful mu Vz teaspoonful sugar. tard. 1 eg?. i teaspoonful salt. U cupful vinegar. hi teaspoonful pap- 1 cupful sour cream. rl'ca. Beat the egg until very light, add the other ingredients, and cook in a double boiler, stirring constantly until thick ened. Remove from the fire and beat well. If this dressing is cooked prop erly, it will have, when cool, a thick, smooth consistency. If it is over cooked, so that there Is a tendency to sepa-rate, it should be strained before cooling. Oatmeal Cookies for Lunches. Oatmeal cookies, a toothsome and wholesome sweet for the school lunch, may be made of one egg, one-third cup ful granulated sugar, one cupful rolled oats, two teaspoonfuls melted fat, one fourth teaspoonful salt. Beat the egg, add sugar gradually, and stir in other ingredients. Drop a spoonful at a time on a well-greased tin and bake in a moderate oven. Milk Is Good as Meat. If milk is 10 cents a quart it Is as cheap a protein food as sirloin steak at 22.0 cents a pound or eggs at 27.9 cents a dozen. At 12 cents a quart it is as cheap as sirloin steak selling at 27.4 cents a pound or eggs at 33.5 cents a dozen. To supply energy at equal cost when milk is 10 cents a quart, sirloin steak must not be more than 14.2 cents a pound, and eggs not more than L'5.3 cents a dozen.

I KNOW HOW WALTER H.' HAIGH Custom Tailor Elliot Street SUGAR: PRODUCE MORE AND SUBSTITUTE, ADVISE SPE CIALISTS. Satisfactory substitutes for sugar may be used to a much larger ox tent, says a paragraph in the department of agriculture's agricultural production program for 101 S, which will be of interest to the housewife. While urging maintenance of the acreage "of sugar cane and sugar beets and increases where these crops are well established or are nec essary to sound agricultural practice, the program states that an ex tensive increase jn 191S is not possible because of the time required . to grow seed cane stock and because of the limited amount of beet seed available. " ','-' ' . The larger use of sorghum, corn and cane sirup, maple sugar and sirup, and honey is urged. The maple sirup and sugar production can and should be increased in those areas in which maple trees are grow ing in sufficient numbers to warrant the expenditure of the necessary time and labor. Maple sirup and sugar are produced in 19 states, the annual output exceeding 14,000,000 pounds of sugar and 4,000,000 gal lons of sirup. Those figures can be increased. The production of sor ghum sirup in 1917 exceeded that in 1910 by nearly 4,000,000 gallons. Sorghum sirup may be produced in nearly every state in the Union, and an increased production of sorghum sirup will enable the public still further to conserve the sugar supply In the most available form for transportation to our soldiers.
