WOMAN’S]
WORLD
~~~—
Here's the recipe o£ a lemon pie that
earned *3,000 for the woman who knew
how to make it. It was only by chance
that the woman did not get $SS,67o for it.
The woman who could make this pie
was Mrs. J. E. Kane, the wife of a tele
graph operator in the office of J. F. Har
ris. a broker, during the panicky days of
last Mac. Operator Kane during the
period when Northern Pacific was taking
its preliminary flights was required to
take his luncheon in the Waldorf-Astoria, j
so that he might be close to his employ- ;
er’s office. '
Mr. Harris, John W. Gates, R. M. Rog- ,
ers. George F. Randolph, L. N. Hueston j
and T. P. Shouts, all millionaires, also '
took luncheon at a table near the one
at which the telegraph operator ate. It
was noticed that the food supplied to ]
ICane seemed to be brought in from out
SI the hotel, and his employer asked him
whether the dinners put up by Oscar, the
hotel’s celebrated chef, did not suit him.
"Oh. yes," replied Kane, “the food sup- :
plied here is excellent, but I like my
wife’s cooking better."
Kane had progressed In his meal to the
dessert stage and was eating pie.
"Would you mind allowing me to assure
myself about the correctness of your
statement?" asked the milliO|naire.
"With pleasure,” was the reply.
"This rs Indeed -wonderful pie," exclaim
ed Mr. Harris. “Do you think you could
induce Mrs. Kane to make a lemon-pie to
morrow for my friends and me?"
The following day a huge pie. fifteen i
inches In diameter, was served at the mill- j
ionaire’s table. So delighted were Messrs. ;
Harris, Gates and the other financiers j
with the unexcelled excellence of Mrs.
Kane's lemon pie—“just like mother used
to make,” they said—that they agreed to !
buy 100 shares of N. P. and turn the prop- s
erty over to that lady.
The STOCK was oougnc in me nauic ^ ;
G. Pymacher. a transparent pseudonym, i
for “A Good Piempker.” The securities
were bought at 113%, and the very next j
day the sensational ad vance in Northern j
Pacific began.
When it reached 135 and Mr. Kane saw ,
the profits in his wife’s culinary HulIH at- j
taining’large proportions he began lo feel
nervous, and then Mr. Rogers, one of the
pie-eating milionaires. called the teleg
rapher’s attention to the fact that North
ern Pacific might have a tumble.
“Well,” said the fortunate husband of
the maker of pies, “I will toss a quarter. I
Heads we* sell, tails w.e.ljold on.”
It came heads and the stock was sold. |
That night there wms almost a panic in i
Northern Pacific, and the stock brought \
any price that holders demanded. The ;
n xi day- sales, were nwd; at a share, j
Had the hundred share lot been held for
the top figure there would have ‘been a
profit for “A. G. Pymacher” of SS8.6T5.
Here is the recipe for Mrs. Kane s 93,000
lemon pie:—
The crust:—
Six cups of flour.
One pinch of salt.
Hard according to judgment.
Ice water to dampen crust after lard
is well worked into the fiour.
Knead lightly, so that the dough will j
just hold together.
Put into earthen vessel.
Freeze on ice over night.
The filling:—
Three cups of boiling water.
Three tablespoonfuls of cornstarch to j
thicken.
Yolks of three eggs.
White of one egg.
White of two eggs for frosting.
Butter the size of a walnut.
Juice of three lemons and grated rind.
Note—The main thing to look out for j
is the freezing of the crust over night. \

It would really require a woman of in
genuity. possessing also a distinct gift for j
the inartistic, to buy just at this juncture
a truly ugly gown. All the important fa- j
brics. from wools to lawns, are in active
competition for purchasers, and not one
piece yet seen but suggests blouses, skirts j
ot complete suits of unusual charm. There !
has begun already a well defined fashion •
in crisp silks. This does not interfere !
with the demand for foulards, but merely
augments the growth of silky manufac- i
turcs.
Very light taffetas, thin grosgrains and
what is called ribbon silk are among the
enticing novelties. The majority of thrse
rustling fabrics are finely figured in pin
stripes, tiny dots or rings, and at least
three well-contrasted colors are reflected
from their sheeny surfaces. Numbers of
the pretty strangers come with ribbon
borders that suggest their own decoration,
and while in some cases these light silks
are not so expensive as foulards, they are
just as full dress and durable as the soft
er weave.
As to the foulards themselves, those in
pompadour colors and pompadour figures
ere in the most active demand. This term
pompadour implies a silk of some rich
Sevres shade, ultramarine blue, polnsetta
red, Swiss green, etc., broken at inter
vals In circles or ovals to display a
wreath or bouquet of flowers in pure pom
padour combination. Sometimes the floral
effect takes the shape of a double line of
descending garlands, in close woven tiny
pink buds caught here and there with
*heph?tde«s hats or baskets filled with
variegated poseys.
Elbow sleeves,have been no uncommon
feature of all but street gowns during the
past winter. They promise to became
universally popular th5-• spring The pret
ty ready-made silk waists that are on sale
at the shops are. with few exceptions only
elbow long, and the sleeve ends in a full
bag at this joint or fits smoothly down
the arm and ends at the elbow in a deep
lace frill.
Dozens upon dozens of charming wash
*i!k and ombroVIered muslin waists, are
now on sale, and these, though given the
studied shirtwaist finish, ruck? cellar, etc.
end their sleeves just below the curve of
one's crazy hone. Even thf gingham and
percale and ehambre.v shirts are leaning
toward the elbow length, for you can buy
them in what are called hot weather
shapes.

country weddings, in May and June, out
of-doors, says the “Ladies’ Home Jour
nal.'’ One of the prettiest of weddings
took place'last May in an orchard in full
blossom, whan Nature seemed to have
decked her coif for a bridal. Garlands of
foliage suspended from tree to tree mark
ed oft the aisle—those of white flowers In
dicating the place where the bridal party
was to stand. For a country wedding the
invitations should give full in-forma.icn
about trains, and carriages and carryalls
be sent to convey the guests to and from
the station.
After an- hour given to their friends the
bridal pair retire to dress for their jour
ney, and the forma! guests withdraw. i’h
bridegroom awaits the bride at the foot
of the staircase with the family and in
timate friends. At her appearance she
holds aloft her bridal bouquet and then
throws it among the bridesmaids. The
one to catch it will be the next bride—so
say tiro Fates!
Much use is made of large or small
wafers of black velvet. They are all called
velvet dots for soma inscrutable purpose. I
You see them on the flounces of a ,-rus- j
sets net evening gown. The dots appear j
on panels of the skort and also on the j
shoulders and sleeves.
Two sizes of dots are sometimes used I
to trim a gown. In this case the smaller I
are ranged above, and the larger wafers !
are spaced below to preserve a symmet- j
rical appearance.

The coffee coat—which should be called :
the Roosevelt or the White House coat !
now—is proving itself a valuable addition j
to the wardrobe this cold weather, for it
serves not only for a tea jacket, but also
for a dinner jacket. . It is particularly ef
fective in a soft Oriental satin of any ;
color that suits the wearer, made with a ;
Watteau {--accrue of chiffon, worked all |
over with sprays of small roses or violets
in silk, of the natural color of the bloom.
An applique of lace edges the coat, and
bordering this is narrow ribbon tipped
with gold and a fringe of the flower.
The sleeves are of the bell shape, striped
with embroidered ribbons, and so is the
deep collar band. Sometimes these gar
ments are mostly lace over accordion
pleated crepe de chine, the collar and
loose pouched front of panne, which is
ever being made of a finer and more sup
ple nature, and consequently ever im
proving.
Dedicate laces are introduced on them
and on the fine white silk muslins, scat
tered over with small bouquets. Delicate
chine silks are being made up into Louis
XVI coats, which have a great element ;
of beauty. They almost seem to be hand
painted, they are so natural.
. * •
A good choice for a traveling gown to j
wear in Europe this summer is one of ;
the Donegal homespuns. The golden i
brown grays, although many women who |
only vary black attire with gray will find
much to admire in the soft grays.
A dash of yellow, of bright green, dull ;
blue or cardinal red “informs” some of j
these sober homespuns, a most desirable j
for a knockabout suit. They do not show
dust as plain black or blue dresses will
do.
The skirt is round and plain, quite short, j
clearing the ground by at least two inch- j
es. It has three stitched bands encircling j
the hejn, one above another.
The bodice is -a plain fitting basque cut
somewhat on the lines of a Norfolk jack
et. It has the yoke back and front, with !
pointed dip at each side.
Below these dips start the straps, w'hich i
run as far as the waist. A strap girdle
buttons on the bodice each side of the
middle of the front. The front of the bo
dice dips considerably below the waist. !
There are basquines (little coat tails) in
the back.
The sleeve is plain, loose and comfort- -
able, with a strap band below the wrist on
a slightly flared cuff.
A very handy thing to have about tw J
house is a strip of the rubber tissue
such as is used in ‘hospitals. Not only
Is this an excellent cure for scald or ,
burn, a rheumatic muscle, a sore chest j
or tired or aching joints and feet, but j
it is a valuable adjunct to the mending ■
basket. If there is a three-cornered
tear in Bobby’s jacket or Belinda's skirt, :
draw the edges together. Jay on a little j
square of the tissue, cover t'hl« with a j
patch and press with a moderately hot j
Iron until the iisr.ue—Which of pure
gum—is dissolved. If care is taken of
this tissue It will last indefinitely. It
must not be kept in a hot room or shut
up away from the air in a tfe'ht hex or
drawer. Put It between two sheets of
paper and lay where the air can circu
late around it. ft is not expensive. Fifty
cents will buy a strip over a yard long
and a quarter wide—an outlay that will
pay for itself many times over. It can -be
•bought at almost any druggist's.

The flower girdle gives the latest smart
touch to a simple evening gown, says the
“Woman’s Home Companion.’’ It is seen
at its prettiest made of pink ribbons and
roses. At the- back it is shaped like a high
girdle. Ribbons are used to get this ef
fect. They gtart from ihe waist-line, and
above it from under the arm. and cross
in the centre of the back, one above the
other, each more pointed than the one
below it. and each fastening with a pink
rose. In the front the ribbons are ar
ranged so as to produce the fashionable
dip effect, which is further emphasized by
a pointed buckle made of featht-rbone cov
ered with pink satin ribbon, the outline
of the buckle defined with tiny pink roses.
From this buckle a mass of pink ribbon
ends dangle. They vary In length, and
each end is finished wfith a pink rose.
Chocolate layer cake is perhaps more
generally liked than any of the frosted
varieties of cake, and the recipes for mak
ing it are given by a well-known authori
ty. To make the layers for the cake the
following Ingredients are required: One
quarter of a cup of butter, one-half cup of
sugar, one egg, one-half cup of m-iik, one
and a half cups of flour and two tea
spoonfuls pt baking powder. Mix and
spread thinly on tins. Bake for thirty
minutes.
This cake is a simple one, but for those
who prefer a richer kind the following re
cipe is given: One and a half cupfuls of
butter, one cupful of sugar, the yolks of
three eggs and whites of two, one-half
cup of milk, one and three-quarter cup
fuls of flour and two teaepoonfuls of bak
ing powder.

In llxing these amounts the State Board
had no easy task because in many cases
a tax paid by one corporation had to be
apportioned to many different municipali
ties. This apportionment was command
ed by the Voorhees act which said that
the tax of a corporation should be ap
portioned to those municipalities in which
the company operated on a basis of the
assessed valuation of the company s
properly in the streets of the municipali
ties.
This act will not operate to lessen the
amount that any city will receive from
those companies by reason of any tax
on their gross receipts, provided for in
the municipal franchises granted to those
companies. Where, however, the com
panies are required to pay locally a tax
on their gross receipts the two per cent.
tr.X, under the Voorhees act, will be in
!|pu thereof, provided the local tax does
not exceed two per cent., then the tax.
under the Voorhees act, shall be accepted
in part payment thereof.

i The competition for the work on the
new engine house, to be located at Grand

by the bids received last night at the
Fire Board’s meeting, was very close.
Three bids were received and .between two
of these there w'as only $5.
The regular order of business was dis
pensed with on motion of Commissioner
Hennseey, and when the bids were opened
by Clerk Esterbrook. they were as fol
lows:—

460; bondsmen for the sum of $5,000, ex
| Mayor “Larry” Fagan, of Hoboken, and
Dennis Mulligan. No. 161 Pavonia avenue.

Angel, were referred to the committee of
the whole, and will be acted upon at a

looks as if Contractor Hahn will be the
: lucky one to receive it.
Last night, just as Clerk Esterbrook had
finished reading the last of the three bids
and they had been referred to a commit
tee on a motion, a young man hurriedly
entered the room and asked if the bids
had all been read.
He was informed by Custodian Millikin
; that they were, and he anxiously Inquired
r what was the lowest bid. When told, he
said a few things to himself, and. tearing
open a sealed envelops, said to Millikin:—
“Look at that, my bid is $255 less than
Hahn's, and I lose by getting here too
late.”
This bid was $10,200, by Contractors Don
nelly and Phelan.
| The T.ew house will be one oi the finest
In the city when completed. A description
! of the building appeared In the “News”
a few weeks ago.
