Although some folk think that fon
dant for bonbons should never be made
;n any utensil but a French copper ket
:le, there are others who find a good
aluminum saucepan adequate for the
purpose. Melt two cups of granulated*
sugar and one cup of water together and
bring rapidly to the boiling point. Never
stir the syrup while it is cooking, but
after it lias boiled' ten minutes lift a
drop on a skewer and roll it between the
thumb and forefinger: It should form a
a .ft, creamy hall jf it has reached the
propert stage, and one that is not sticky.
|lf the candy tried is the least bit hard or
jbrittle the syrup has boiled too long, and
ja teaspoonful of boiling water must be
added and it must be boiled' and tested
again. When the sugar reaches the ex
act state of a “creamy ball,” necessary
a tike for fudge, fondant or for boiled'
'ting, let the syrup cool a little. Stir
ten minutes, or until it resembles laid1 in
consistency, then knead it on a confec
tioner’s marble clap, one that it not too
-old. If the slap is not at hand a large
white stone platter may be substituted.
This quantity of fondant will make a
little over a pound of candy. "When
.eady, flavor with bitter almond, vanilla,
lemon, orange, or, for some purposes,
with a few drops of rum. Put the fon
dant in a bowl and set it in warm water
while making it into candies. Roll into
little grooved balls or cones with creased
butter pats. It is well to prepare as
many as five or six bowls' of fondant,
variously flavored for different kinds of
candy. For white flavoring use bitter
almond. Vanilla is well liked in pink
candy, made with pink sugar or with a
•little cochineal liquid put up for this pur
pose. Grated lemon peel squeezed
through a muslin bag will give a good
coloring and a decided zesr to lemon can
dies. The grated' rind1 of a seedless Cal
ifornia orange with a little of the piece
put through a thin piece of muslin will
add a good orange color and flavor.
It is wise to purchase a small bottle
of spinach green from a thoroughly
trustworthy druggist. This will tint a
portion of fondaut a pale yellow green,
the exact color of pistachio nuts. These
green candies may be flavored with bit
ter almond, a few drops of Santo Cruz
ruui or Maraschino.
Jordan almonds are the best for can
dies. Pistachio nuts may be purchased'
at dealers in confectioners’ supplies, and
usually cost about $1 a pound. They are
sold in bottles sealed up from the air, as
they are very easily ruined by being kept.
Chocolate Fondant—To make choco
late fondant mix two or three ounces of
unsweetened chocolate with two cups of
acgar melted to a syrup, with a cup of
'.valor, and boil the mixture to a fondant.
This will make delicious chocolate can
dies. English walnuts shelled and
shopped fine are excellent mixed with
them.
For creamed almonds flavor a little
white fondant with vanilla and dip the
almonds in this fondant, which should be
melted until it is almost like cream.
Cream walnut kernels and hazelnuts in
the same way. If the fondant is so thin
that the nut shows through, it has not
been properly coated, and must be dipped
again after the bowl has been taken out
of the hot water and the fondant cooled'

There is a terrible “slaughter of in

we are only beginning to realize that
we can stop it, says Lillian Brandt in

they are only half the truth. The cheer

From this it follows that.it is prevent

but also curable, which means that there
is hope for every person1 in the early
stages of consumption if he can have the
right kind of treatment.
Consumption would soon1 become as
rare a disease as leprosy if all mem
bers of society could be induced to co
operate in intelligent, efforts to eliminate
it. It is doubtful whether, in this strug
gle with the “captain of the men of
death,” any group of persons be of more

An excellent stuffing for roast ducks is
as follows: Add1 to some finely minced
green sage leaves about double their
quantity of parboiled onions, a little but
ter and pepper and salt to taste; mix
well.
After the ducks are drawn and the in
side wiped with a clean cloth, put the
stuffing in the crops and bodies, leaving
just a little room for it to swell in cook
ing. Put aside the livers, gizzards and
hearts to use in the gravy.
Tie the ducks’ bodies firmly with wet
or buttered strings and put them in the
oven, using a little salt and water for
their first basting .and after that with
their own gravy .dredging them slightly
with flower at last. They will require
about an hour to roast.
Chop up the livers, gizzards and hearts
after botHng and add them to the gravy
after it has been skimmed and thickened
with browned flower.
Serve the duck with onion sauce in
which sage leaves are floating.
Ducks should always be accompanied
by cranberries and green pew*.
Canvasbaek ducks are roasted in the
same manner, but the stuffing is omitted.
They should be served with currant jelly
and to the gravy add a large wineglass
of claret or port. They are usually done
in three-quarters of an hour.

The popularity of the separate waist
renders the fancy collar and the belt
prominent features of the costume. Never
before have the accessories been so at
tractive as now, and those made at home
by the ingenious woman are the best.
Here are belt and- coliar of unique and
charming design. White linen and a dark
blue taffeta composed them, the linen
forming the top portion of the collar and
the under part of the belt. The idea is
not only attractive and new, but practi
cal, as the part of each which is subject
to most soil and wear is the washable
part. These are easily made by any one
at home and need only unbuttoning to
separate silk from linen. French knots
adorn the edge of the silk tabs on the
collar and the three small buttons finish
the back of the belt. Pongee and broad
cloth ,as well as a variety of combina
tions, might be used for these to go with
any costume. Five-eights yards of silk
and the same of linen thirty-six inches
wide are needed for the two.
A very charming little gift to give a
girl friend is a string of beads designed
by the donor. That is, instead of of buy
ing a ready-strung chain, select the beads
and have them blended into, a pretty
'necklace that has a distinction of its own.
One such necklace that wiU be, given
this year is made up of beads of carved
is especially designed to be worn with a
brown wood and beads of green jade. It
certain pretty frock; of the giri who is to
get it. Snell chains are best made up
with a certain frock in mind .and add a
unique and pretty touch thereto. One
of the prettiest of these chains is of
brown wood and pale blue beads.
The entir^ chain may be of beads of a
solid color. With just two or three cur
iously carved beads of wood or ivory
added; or a bead set with a birthstone
or made of the stone. A carved peach
or cherrystone or a china head decorated
with some appropriate design add indi
vidually to the gilt. _
