A new dessert has made its appear ance which Is as delicious as it U at tractive In appearance. It can be ci ther ordered from the confectioners or made at home, and the latter is preferable at all times. Vanilla ice cream, spongo and fruit cake will be needed. The cckes arc cut from loaves and should be nn inch thick when Heed and should fit an oblong mold. When the cream is frozen to a mush, pack an inch layer in the mold, then place the fruit cake on this, then cov er with another layer of tho cream, over which lay the sponge cake, and then add the last cream layer, which ANIXitiA ICS CREAM WITH SPONGE AND FltUIT CAKE. should fill aud overflow the mold, hay over this an oiled paper. A buttered one will do or three thicknesses of paraffin paper. Put the cover over this, allowing the paper to come down over the sides, tic securely in place and then run melted lard between the cover and the pan to prevent all pos sibility of the salt aud Ice leaking in. Pack In salt nnd Ice for three or four hours. When ready to serve remove the coverings, wipe the outside of the mold with a hot cloth and Invert tbc mold on to n cold dish, when the cream loaf will slip out. An extra addition can be served in the whipped cream sauce tinted with yellow or pink, using egg yolk for the first and a bit of boiled beet Juice in tho latter Instance, this being placed In the cream before whipping. But this dessert Is Just as tasty with out tho sauce. Should this be found too much trouble, then the cream can be dished from tho freezer on to slices of tho fruit and spongo cake and served. Their Greatest Sin. In most of the Islands of the Pacific hell Is not reserved for the wicked in our sense of the word that Is. the thief, the murderer, the slanderer anil tho selfish man. All these finally reach a state of happiness. Rut a most un mistakable hell Is reserved for those guilty of the only sin known to them, timidity and cowardice. Servia. Servia Is the most densely populated country In the Balknn states. 1S 1908 Due rRQ COMPANY OWNS, in fee simple 22,500 acres of COAL LAND conservatively estimated to contain 300,000,000 tons of minable coal Situated Nichols and Clay Counties, West Virginia, on a branch of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad ; also the Kanawha & West Virginia R. R. CRANBERRY HINTS. The Least Understood and Oftenest Abused Domestic Fruit. Tho cranberry Is tho least under stood and the most abused of any of our domestic fruits. Comparatively few know Us possibilities. Quite ns few know how to prepare It In palata ble form. Tho expression Is common, "You need n barrel of sugar for a barrel of cranberries." This Is not true. It Is not a sugar consumer compared with most fruits. If users will make the test they will discover that more sauce with less sugar proportionately can be made from a quart of cranberries than from a quart of any other kind of berry and if properly made will be tempting and toothsome. A barrel of sugar will sweeten more than three barrcU of cranberries. A cranberry shortcake will compare favorably with a straw berry shortcake. Eaten raw. they aro a laxative and liver tonic, and, like the olive, one can cultivate a fondness for them. Cranberries are keepers, like the ap ple, and, like apples, require a cool, dry place. It Is economy to buy good berries. Never cook In tin or Iron ware. Use porcelain, earthenware or granite. Do not cover with cold water and allow to simmer, steep and stew over slow fire. This makes tough skins, pale, sickly pink or dark, dull red color and gives acrid flavor.- Use boiling water, cook rapidly and not long. For a good sauce, to one quart of clean cranberries add one pint granu lated sugar, one pint of boiling water. Place Immediately over brisk fire, stirring enough to mix sugar with wa ter and coat berries. Cover as soon as berries begin to swell and pop. Stand by and mash until every berry Is broken. Keep them boiling during this operation. By the time berries are nil mashed or have boiled fifteen minutes remove from stove nnd turn Into china or earthen ware dish. When cold the result should bo a beautiful rich red. Jellied sauce. Culinary Conceits. Cheap 'cuts of meat can be served palatably In stows and croquettes. To bake p.-.ncakos without greasing the griddle add a talilespoonful of but ter or half a cup of cream to the bat ter. When making a pea soup. If the peas ! iro boiled a little while separately i with a pinch of common washing soda ' !iey will bo found lo cook much more quickly. They do not need soaking. I Paro some large apples and core jtliem, till the centers with chopped ll.crs, cover with sugar, put into a deep baking dish, add a little water and hake, basting well from time to time. Serve hot or cold with cream. ooo.oo per cent April, 1958 On Effect of the Green Hat. "Blxby Is engaged to the De Glitter girl, you know?" "Yes."
