Soda Lemonade I have a recipe for a soda lemon, ade that we all enjoy very much it is especially fine for people with a gout}', rheumatic tendency. Squeeze the juice of half a large lemon (free from seeds) into a tumbler, add lo it a teaspoon as heaping full of sugar as it is pos sible to make it, stir to dissolve it, fill up a scant three-quarters with ice water, and then stir in a scant third of a teaspoon (level) of hi-j carbonate of soda. When the foam nears the top of the glass you may begin to sip from it, or it may surprise you by overflowing. If l you prefer your lemonade sweeter, you can regulate the quantity of sugar after trying the recipe; if you make it too sweet it will have a flat taste. This recipe was given me by one of the most clever physicians in Chicago, _ Big Apples. Mrs. Philip Fredrick left tit The Dawn office this week three apples of th National Wolf River variety that are prize-takers in our esti mation. The largest one measured 17J inches in circumference and weighed one pound and twelve ounces. The three weighed four pounds and two ounces. Mrs. Fredrick got them from the E. Denton ranch on theNatchese. Big- Spuds. Asa June, of the Menastash, brought to The Dawn ollice Sat urday some of the finest spuds we have seen for some years.

TO KILL WOOLLY APHIS, Something Horticulturists May Read with Pleasure. An ex-member if the state board of horticulture recommends the following as a pure death 'o the woolly aphis and her Insects, and suggests the following solution: [Jnslacked lime, forty to sixty pound.-: sulphur (flour ol sulphur) twenty poundsjsalt, fifteen pounds; concentrated ly<\ two pounds; water to make sixty gallons. When sixty instead of forty pounds of lime are used, the solu tion has a whiter appearance and the operator can hotter detect when the limb has been properly treated with the wash. Place ten pounds of lime and twenty pounds of sulphur and the lye in a boiler with twenty gallons of wafer, stir and boil over a brisk fire for not less than one hour and a half, or until the sulphur is thor oughly dissolved. When this takes place the fluid will be an amber color. Next place in a cask from thirty to fifty pounds of unslacked lime,pouring over enough hot water to thoroughly slack it (being care ful to keep it moist and not to spoil it by burning,) and while it is boiling add the fifteen pounds of salt. When this is dissolved add to the lime and sulphur in the boiler and boil for half an hour longer, when the necessary amount of water to make sixty gallons should be added. It should then be strained through gunny cloth or burlap. When using, it should be frequently and well stirred. Apply while hot. Used in dormant season for San Jose scale and for woolly aphis, also for oyster shell scale. County Levy.
