Note —No succotash seems quite so

mother. It was made ot tender green
beans, cut fine, and good sweet corn, cut
carefully from rhe cob. The beans were
put on to boil first, with a small piece l
ot bacon, and when partly done about
two-thirds as much corn was added and
allowed to simmer till thoroughly done
and sweet. Then a cupful of cream is
added and a small tablespoon of flour.
I epper and salt as needed. Boil up and
serve.
Appended is a very nice recipe for
Plum, green grape and elderberry jelly:
Plums, mixed with green grapes and
elderberries make most delicious tart jei
ly. Small juicy yellow plums are best.
Wash, pit and scald them with their own
bulk ot elderberries and green grapes;
pick from the stem, strain out the juice.-
let It settle 10 minutes, then pour It
carefully off the sediment. Put in a shal
low kettle ovqr a quick fire, boil for five
minutes, skimming well, then add for
each pint of juice a pound and a quarter
of very hot granulated sugar; stir hard
until the sugar dissolves, then skim again
and boil hard for two minutes Drop a
little in ice water: the minute this hard
ens take it off the fire and pour into
hot glasses.
Appended is a delicious recipe tor peach
jam:
Peach Jam—Gather the peaches, when
quite ripe, peel and stone them, put them
in a preserving pan and mash them over
the fire till hot; rub them through a
sieve and add to a pound of pup the same
weight of pounded loaf sugar and half an
ounce of bitter almonds, blanched and
pounded; let it boll 10 or 12 minutes. Stir
it and skim well.

IRON FOR THE BLOOD.
Doctors agree that iron is an import

deficiency is the cause of anaemia, run

is in the form of VINOL, which is a
combination of two world famed tonics,
the medicinal elements recovered from
fresh cod’s livers and Tonic Iron.
