Grand Forks Herald: O. G.
Majors, the well-known populist
warhorse of Steele County, was
in the city yester day ou his way
home after looking up some mat
ter in connection with the various
farmers' elevators which he has
been instrumental in organizing.
"The farmers' elevators which
have been organized in North
Dakota," said Mr. Majors,' are
thriving beyond our utmost ex
pectations, and those who pre
dicted their failure have seen
about a dozen of these house in
operation for the past year,
chiefly on the May ville, Portland
and Hope branches, and in every
case except one a handsome div
idend was declared at the close
of the year's business.
"The record of tbe Hope House
may be used as a sample. The
company was organized among
the farmers tributary to the town
and the elevator was bought for
54,660. During last season we
handled 187,000 bushels of grain
on a margin or IJ2 to 2 cents. At
the end of the year aftea paying
all operating expenses., §1,700
was divided among the stock
holders, this being a profit of
over 36 per cent. In some of the
other houses the dividends have
run as high as 60 per cent, this
depending on the patronage ex
tended to the house and thei local
"The Hope House is an old one
and has no cleaning apparatus,
and it was necessary for us to
ship all grain in the dirt. We
were charged with a dockage of
6,000 bushels, and the screenings
for which we received nothing
were worth $7 a ton. This could
Have been saved had we possess
ed fie proper apparatus for
cleaning the grain at home. This
is a point which should be borne
in mind. There are many
thousands of dollar's worth of

COOKED FLOWER FAD.
Giving Flower Feasts Is the Hobby of
Have you ever tasted a chrysanthe
mum fritter, a honeysuckle or apple
blossom wafer? If you have not, says
the New York Mail and Express, get
out your chafing dish at once and try
your skill on the very latest in dainty
desserts. This is the day of novelty.
Every up-to-date hostess is trying to
outdo her neighbor in the way of new
ideas, and just now the hobbj- of their
hour bids fair to be a very delightful
one—that of giving flower feasts.
Not a flower for decoration, be it un
derstood, but flowers to eat—roses,
violets, apple blossoms,even little yel
low buttercups, or any flower that is
favored by the bee, for the little hon
ey gatherer determines at once the
plants that are pleasing and reliable
for the human palate to sample. The
fashion of learning somethiing about
cooking has been seriously taken up
and pursued with much interest by
the debutantes of the season, but
nothing has been more heartily wel
comed than this idea of preparing
flowers for edibles. The fashion has
been borrowed from the Chinese 400,
who, dating from the time of Con
fucius and before, lm-e been noted
for their epicurean tastes. Their fa
vorite dishes may be widely differ
ent from ours, but, as the American
invasion into the oriental restaurants
indicate, they are not at all entirely
unappetizing. Not long ago a popu
lar society girl returned from a several
months' sojourn in the far east, and
one of the first things she did was
to astonish her friends by serving
them a Chinese luncheon with the
famous flower desserts, which she
prepared at table with the chafing
Chop suejv pineapple chicken and
the various water chestnut and bean
sprout dishes, so dear to the heart
of the Chinaman, have become an old
story to the average New Yorker, but
to watch a dainty hostess convert the
table decoration of La France roses
into a most delicious dessert is new.
If one were to take a peep into the
kitchen of one of the large apart
ment homes on upper Madison av
enue some Thursday afternoon the
picture of a flower feast in progress
would meet their admiring eyes. A
half-dozen or so girls have formed a
social club, and "experimental meet
ings" are held in their various homes.
The original recipe imported from
China is the chrysanthemum fritter.
To make this a member of the Ah
Chee (golden branches) club furnishes
the following: "Take two eggs, beat
lightly add wheat flour to make
thin batter no salt. Take a fresh
chrysanthemum, yellow or white pre-,
ferred, though any color will do
wash well, then pluck leaves and stir
in batter. Chop a little of the leaf,
also, and add. Stir well together.
Have ready smoking hot peanut oil.
Take fork or chopsticks, pick up a
few leaves out of the butter, drop
lightly in oil, brown for a moment
and remove to drain on absorbent pa
per. When dry, sprinkle well with
powdered sugar and serve." A more
rlainty dish cannot be imagined than
this chrysanthemum conceit, which
looks as tempting as it tastes. Iloso
leaves or violets are delicious cooked
in this way, and the tiny wafers are
altogether novel substitutes for cham
