FOOTBALL ON HORSEBACK Will be Demonstrated with the Wild West and Far East NO MORE striking contrast abounds in an exhibition of widely differing features than is to be found in the exhibition given by Ray Thompson’s Trained Western Range Horses with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West and Pawnee Bill’s Great Far East. In the same arena with the wild bucking horses of the plains, Mr. Thompson presents his troupe of skillfillly trained equines, foaled in the same atmosphere as the broncho and reared amid the same sur roundings. I " ' - ; I This season Rhoda Royal’s troupe of twenty high-school prize-winning thoroughbreds—universally crowned favorites—have been added. This combines every link from the primitive and practical to the artistic develop ment of the educated equine. These two intelligent studs have never be fore been seen in one arena — both recognized as top-notchers of the ex celsior class. Another interesting equine novelty is Football on Horse-back, played between Indians and cowboys mounted on the rugged little cayuse and the belligerant broncho. Brought over from England this new style of athletics is an absolute novelty, grotesquely presented and full of real comedy. Essentially a “horse show’* in the broadest acceptance of the term, the mm west ana ureat far ixasi ex hibition is in no wise limited to equine features, for there are military displays, cavalry charges and gorgeous pageants. The splendors of the Orient are here reflected, early American history is brought to mind in stirring conflicts and replicas of barbaric Indian warfare. And the feature of features is the ap pearance at every performance, rain or shine, of Col. Wm. F. Cody, the only and original “Buffalo Bill,” who gives his personal attention to every detail of the exhibition. Scandinavian Courtship. It was considered beneath the dig aity of a Scandinavian warrior to court his bride by gallantry and sub mission; be always waited until she tiad bestowed her affections on anoth er and was in her way to the mar riage ceremony, then collecting his faithful followers they fell upon the wedding pa.ty and carried away the bride. It was much in favor of this practice that marriages were always elebrated at night Commissioner’s Sale. Dell Gardner, et *1. vs. N-. 2982. Matt Gladney, gt al.

Successful Bread.—Pare and boll three good-sized potatoes In salted water; when cooked mash them and add the water they were boiled In. When luke-warm add three teaspoons of sugar, one tablespoon of salt and one tablespoon of flour. Stir well and add a cake of yeast. This should be sufficient to make one quart of yeast; if not, add Juke-warm water to make the amount. Set away over night. In the morning prepare about three heaping quarts of flour, make a shal low place in the center, take one pint of yeast and make a sponge; if there Is not sufficient sponge for the amount of bread wanted add luke warm water. This amount should make four large loaves. When the sponge appears foamy, or covered with small bubbles, mix quite firm, and when raised to twice its size it is ready to form into loaves. Do not mix hard like some people do, but form the loaves with only enough handling to round them. Let rise again for about half an hour, then bake in a medium hot oven, but increase the heat as the bread rises. When next making use the same recipe as you started with, but instead of using a cake of yeast add the pint of yeast left from the last baking. You can have delicious rolls or buns by taking a piece of dough about the size re quired for a loaf of bread; add a tablespoon of lard and a little sugar; lorm into wnatever snape uesireu, auu let rise until very light. This ap pears like a whole lot of work, but it j Is not, as the yeast can be made while preparing dinner the night be fore by cooking a few extra potatoes and adding the water they were boiled in. After breakfast the next morning prepare the bread and it will be baked before noon, and you will have good, wholesome/ bread which will not dry out, as the bread made from the store yeast does. SOMETHING NEW IN TOASTERS Pacific El Tosto Is an Electrical De vice Which Also Is a Warm ing Table. "Improved'’ seems to be the watch word as to household electrical de vices. The Pacific El Tosto here Ulus L_:I An Improved Toaater. trated shows something new—a warm ing table on the top to keep the coffee pot or any other dish warm during the meal. If you wish to prepare swie back just lay the toast upon this shelf until it is well dried through.—Popu lar Mechanics. Covers for Dressing Table. Although bureau and dressing table covers may be of almost any material, many of the prettiest are made of linen, embroidered by hand, if made at home, or machine embroidered if bought in the shops. These soil quickly, however, and those made of natural linen should be a boen to the busy housewife. A pret ty pair of these w'ere made of ecru linen, edged with buttonhole em broidery in white and a tendril de sign as a border. These are cool looking, and do not show the soil as readily as do the white ones. Fried Apples. These are also excellent served with any form of pork. Select large, firm apples, rather tart, and wash without paring. Core, cut in slices half an inch thick, then brown in pork fat or butter, turning with a pancake turner, so they will not break. They should be tender, but not broken. If pre ferred a trifle sweet, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the uncooked side just before turning. Pried apples are especially nice with fried pork or sausage. Gingerbread With Cream. One-half cup sugar, one tablespoon ful butter, one egg, pinch of salt; one cup good light molasses, one teaspoon ground ginger, one teaspoon baking Boda, dissolved in three-fourth cup cold water, two cups flour. Bake slow ly in deep pan. Can be served cut in squares, with whipped cream for des sert. Whip one-half pint cream, add two tableBpoons powdered sugar (sift ed) and one-half ‘ teaspoon vanilla. Serve on the warm gingerbread. Very Bice with a fish dinner. Buckwheat Cakes. Two cups of buckwheat flour, one of wheat flour, a little salt, three tea-1 spoons baking powder; mix thorough ly and add about equal parts of milk and water until the batter is of the right consistency, then stir until free from lumps. If they do not brown well, add a little molasses. Albert’s Headache Checkers give in stant relief and permanently cure all headaches, neuralgia, periodical pains.
