TIME TO BAKE THAT CHRISTMAS FRUIT CAKE. Always Ready to Serve and Has "Saved the Day" on Many Occa sions When Unexpected Com pany Arrived—How Served. Perhaps you are saying that you cannot afford a Christmas fruit cake this year or that it would be unpatri otic to make one. But think of the many times that the fruit cake has "saved the day" whenunexptcted com pany arrived, as is likely to happen in the holiday season. You didn't care if the dessert pre pared for the family was not stretch able, but took down the fruit cake and opened a can of fruit to serve with it or steamed a slice around and served It with a sauce as a plum pudding. Remember the many ways you can make use of the fruit cake, and that It can be made without sugar, and you will find yourself deciding that you cannot forego it as a holiday treat. This recipe makes use of honey for sweetening. The dried fruits used are less expensive than the candled fruits so often used In a fruit cake. Honey Fruit Cake. teaspoonful .. cloves S pounds raisins, seeded 4 ounces citron 1 pound cranberries 1 pound canned pineapple 1 pound dried apri cots 1 lb. dried apples To prepare the cranberries, pineap ple, apricots, and apples, cut the fruit in small pieces—except the cran berries which are left whole—and cook each in honey until soft Re move from the fire and dry in a very Blow oven. A little water should be added to the honey in which the cran berries cook. To any honey left over from cooking the fruits add enough more to make the two cupfuls used In mixing the cake. Place the fruit in a large dish and sift over it one^half of the flour, mixing thoroughly. Sift the eoda with the remaining flour. Bring the honey and the butter to the boiling point and while still hot add the spices. When the mixture is cool add the well-beaten yolks of eggs, then the flour, and finally add the well-beaten whites and the fruit. The cake should be divided into thrfce or four parts and put Into buttered dishes covered with buttered paper tied closely over the top. Steam for five hours, remove the paper, and bake in a slow oven for one hour. If you don't get your fruit cake made early you can try the following quick fruit cake, which is very good, also: Quick Fruit Cake.. cupful shortening 1 teaspoohful salt 1 cupful corn sirup 1 teaspoonful cloves or sorghum 2 eggs 2-3 cupful milk 2 teaspoonfuls •&> nllla 1% cupfuls flour 2 teaspoonfuls bak ing powder 1 teaspoonful ginger 1 tablespoonful cin namon 1 cupful chopped raisins cupful chopped nuts cupful chopped citron Mix fat and sirup, add egg yolks and milk.

Many people are just beginning to find out that nuts are a valuable source of food. Most varie ties have a high nutritive value, due to their fat and protein content. Chestnuts stand in a class by them selves, being largely carbohydrate in composition. They are good boiled and mashed. Serve as potatoes or use as stuffing for a fowl. Butternuts, black walnuts, English walnuts, filberts, hazel nuts, hickory nuts, pecans and almonds all may be used as fat savers, for they are especially rich in fat. It is certain that if you have on hand a large supply of nuts, you can add at tractive and varied dishes to your meals at little expense. The protein and fat are combined in the nut much I as they are in meat, which makes it a good substitute for meat. Vegetarians have learned to make many attractive combination dishes from nuts, such as nut loaves, croquettes and souffles, which they serve in place of meat. This walnut roast is very palatable. Almost any nut can be used in place of the walnut if desired. Walnut Roast. 1 cupful walnut meats (ground) 2 teaspoonfuls onion (grated) 1 teaspoonful salt 2 cupfula whole milk 1H cupfuls toasted bread crumbs 2 eggs Mix the ingredients pack into a greased loaf pan and bake. We all know the place of nuts in salad making. The ground nuts are also very good mixed with cottage cheese. Mold the mixture and slice. Another attractive dish which-is deli clous served for a Sunday night's, sup per is tomato, celery and nut sand wich. Slice bread and toast until a delicate brown. Place a slice of to mato on a slice of the toasted bread, sprinkle with sajt and cover with fine ly chopped celery mixed with finely ground nuts. Cover with another slice of the toasted bread. Some people prefer to toast the bread for such sandwiches on one side only, putting the toasted side out. In the pastry and cake recipes which follow, the nuts are used to re place the fat usually used. They also give a desirable flavor as well as rich ness to the products. Nut Pastry. Take equal weights of nut meats and flour sifted with a small amount of salt. Put the flour and nut meats through a food grinder together until the nuts are finely ground. Mix with just enough cold water to make the mass hold together. Roll thin, cut in rounds or in strips and bake. These may be spread with cream cheese and used as a salad wafer or they may be served as a tart spread with jelly or lemon filling. Nut Cakes. 8 ounces nuts 4 teaspoonfuls bak 1 Vt cupfuls sugar lng soda 3 cupfuls flour 4 egg whites 1 teaspoonful salt 1% cupfuls water teaspoonful soda 1 teaspoonful cinna mon Mix and bake In muffin molds or in a loaf. [8M GOOD WORKING CREED The ideal of the boy and girl club members under the direc tion of the department of agri culture and the state agricul tural colleges is to learn and practice the best way to pro duce something worth while and then to give the information to some one else, who may also reap the benefits from these bet ter practices.

Sand Is good if available, but never throw sand on the carburetor or any other part of the machine. It falls away, leaving gasoline free to burn, and also gets Into the mechanism, do ing incalculable harm. On a fiat sur face sand is excellent, or any other dry powder. Even flour has saved many a home where gasoline has been used carelessly. The old method of covering the fire with a rug or carpet is good, but the extinguisher is bet ter. This covers the fluid with a lay er of heavy noninflammable gas which smothers the flame. Everyone knows that any kind of a fire is dangerous, but if the above suggestions are employed under self control the flames starting from a carburetor backfire will be efficiently stopped at the source. r't /. iii': Hit®* "The farmer," says Mr. Norton, "be lieves, in the first place, that the mar ket is overcrowtled already.

"These are big questions and must be answered to the full satisfaction of the farmer. It is but natural that the farmer wants to continue to be his own salesman until convinced that dependable capital can do more for him and permit him to devote more time to his farm." Mr. Norton said that the truck hori zon is full of prospects that large and dependoble capital Is at work planning to take advantage of 'them, and that a solution of the farmer problem is not far distant.

Harvey of White Hall, 111., resolved that certain Improvements in automobile headlights were necessary. Therefore he produced a very simple and commendable in ventlon. The idea is to make at least one headlight turn, and that at the mo ment the steering wheel is resolved. Thus one headlight shines up in the new direction wfiile the other con tinues to light the old roadway. In this way light is provided in the two places most needed when rounding a corner. The connecting rod between the front wheels supplies the motive power which moves the lamps. Two pins are made fast to this rod near each end, and the rod in Its right-and left movements causes one or the other of the pins to strike the arm of its bent rod leading up to the corre sponding light. The illustrations show details. A spring keeps the parts taut and ready to respond to all im pulses from the pins and rod.—Popu lar Science Monthly.
