Kitchen Lore.
Raised Muffins.—Take a quart of
wheat floor anil mix it smoothly with
a pint and a half of lukewarm milk,
half a teacupful of yeast, two eggs,
well beaten, two tablespoonfuls of
melted butter aud a little salt. Place
the batter where it is warm to rise.
When it is light, bake on a griddle in
mufliu rings.
Apple Float.—Stew six large
apples, lay them on a sieve to drain
and cool; then put them on a flat dish
with about two spoonfuls of powdered
sugar, the juice of one lemon aud the
whites of two or three eggs. Beat all
this to a froth with an egg beater.
Fill a glass bowl or custard cups
with soft custard, aud lay the apple
froth on as high as it will stand.
Chocolate Pudding.—One quart of
sweet milk, three ounces of grated
chocolate, six eggs, one cup of sugar
and one or two (according to taste) of
vanilla. Scald the milk aud chocolate
together; when the chocolate is dis
solved, take from the fire, and when
cool add the yolks of the six beaten
eggs aud the whites of threo beaten
separately, the sugar and vanilla.
Bake in a pudding dish for half an
hour Beat the remaining whites of
the eggs, with five tablespoonfi.ls of
sugar, spread over the top and brown
lightly.
Cold Potatoes.—Never throw away
sold potatoes. Cold boiled potatoes
are best to fry, and require less time
than raw ones, but they should be
sliced thicker. Skin baked potatoes
while they are warm; they are excel
lent for meat hashes or to heat in
milk. It is also a nice way to chop
them fine, when cold, sprinkle with
salt and pepper and fry in pork fat or
butter. Press the mass down in the
frying pan, let it remain till it is
heated through and the lower surface
is browned, or stir occasionally with
a fork till sufficiently browned.
HUCKABACK DaHNINO.
Perhaps the most durable and
effective work at present in use is the
huckaback darning. The material
used is the ordinary huckaback which
comes al twenty cents a yard, and is
from twelve to thirteen inches wide

A pretty piece is a sola pillow, with
a wreath of leaves done in long or

was seen in pale yellow, the design
being buttercups.

UcroHcnc Emulsion.
Kerosene emulsions may be mado by
various emulsifying agents, but the
most satisfactory substances and those
! most available to the average farmer
and fruitgrower aro milk aud soapsuds.
In each of these cases the amount of
emulsifying ageut should be one-half
the quantity of kerosene. Following is
a formula approved by the department
°f agriculture:,
kerosene..
Cdnimon soap or whale
oil soup.
Water .
_2 gallons (117 per cent)
U pound i (83 per cent )
1 gallon i
Heat the solution of soap and add it
boiling hot to the kerosene. Churn the j
mixture by means of a force pump and ]
spray nozzle for five or ten minutes. The j
emulsiou, if perfect, forms a cream
which thickens upon cooling and should
adhero without oilinesM to tlje surface
If the water from the soil is
hard or has a large percentage of lime,
add a little lye or bicarbonate of soda,
or elso use rainwater. For usu against
.scale insects dilute one part of the emul
sion with nine parts of cold water! For
most other insects diluteono part of the
emulsion with 15 parts of water. For
soft insects like plant lice the dilution
may be carried to from 20 to 25 parts of
water. Tho milk emulsion is produoed
by the same methods as tho above.

PATENTS
1 l-'lw II V I W
FOR INVENTIONS.
Equal with the interest of those having claims against the government is
of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuable inventions because
that
of tlie incompetency or inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain tlieir
patents. Too much care cannot be exercised.in employing competent aud reli
able solicitors to procure patents, for the value of a patent depends greatly, if net
entirely, upon the care and skill of the attorney.
With tlie mew of protecting inventors from worthless or careless attorneys,
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, we have re
tained counsel expert in patent practice, aud therefore are prepared to
Obtain Patents in the United States and all Foreign Countries, Conduct In
terferences, Make Special Examinations, Prosecute Rejected Cases,
Register Trade-Marks and Copyrights, Render Opinions as to
Scope and Validity of Patents, Prosecute and
Defend Infringement Suits, Etc., Etc.
If you have an invention on hand send a sketch or photograph thereof, to
gether'with a brief description of the important features, and you will be at once
advised as to the best course to pursue. Models are seldom necessary. If
others are infringing on your rights, or if you are charged with infringement by
others, submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the
matter.
