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

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.
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
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.

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. '
