CAKE DAY IS DIO SUCCESS HOT SPRINGS LADIES LEARN MRS. ARMSTRONG'S METHOD OF CAKE BAKING. Fish Menu and Loaf Cake Demonstra tiofj the Program Today—Yester terday Was Another Big Day. Thursday's Program. As expected, "cake day,” at the Sentinel - Record's cooking school proved a decided success. The at tendance was equal to that of any former day an1 the interest in the process of cake baking and making was only equaled by the hearty sat isfaction expressed by the ladies when they had. been taught all the intri cacies of this splendid process. There were a iarge number of new faces at the cooking school yesteiaay, but the large majority of those in at tendance were the ladies who have been there every day. Mingled wiin the audience were a number of visiting ladies, who found In the cooking school a delightful manner of spend ing a pleasant and profitable after noon. In addition to the cake demonstra tion there was a lesson on broiling and the preparation of other dishes, and altogether it was one of the best program’s of the session. Today a fish menu will be demon strated, and among other lessons will be one on loaf cake making. The preparation, cooking, garnishing and serving of fish is an interesting pro cess, and tlie lesston demonstrated with fillet of trout will be a splen did one. Cake Baking Feature. Thee cake leaking feature, which c- started 'he program for Wednesday k afternoon, proved a success of absorb ing interest to all zealous attendants on (he cooking class. The - proceed ings were so intricate that it. would he impossible to go Into detail, but i Mrs. Armstrong departed so radically from the usual order of cake making that many of the strikingly different things in her methods struck her au dience strangely. ‘‘There is as much in getting ready to bake a cake as there is in making and baking one,” said Mrs. Armstrong, ■while preparing her materials for mix ing. • instead of fitting her medium sized straight sided pans with bottom layers of greased manilu paper, according 10 the time honored custom of our moth ers, Mrs. Armstrong brushed her pans with grease, and then lightly, dusted them with flour, shaking the flour about so that it thoroughly coated the insides of the pan, and then inverting the pan so that all the flour which did not stick to the grease shook out of the pans. i may tell you simple things Uni everybody knows,” Mrs. Armstrong said, “but it is my experience that there isn't anything that everybody knows, so to speak, that will not be a new and helpful fact to one put of every ten in my audience. And the tenth one is the woman who needs t > be helped out of some big difficulty.” Flour Differences. The cooking lady went into careiui explanation on the subject of the dif ferences in flour. "Soft" flour is the flour made from southern winter wheat. "Hard" flour is ground from northern spring wheat. In testing flours to determine their Characters, notice the color of the flour, the sott flour being whiter in tone and the hard flour being creamy and pass the flour between the lingers to notice the difference in textures. Soft flour will he, smooth and without grain, like ' corn starch, while the hard flour is gritty and sandy to the touch. "Coarse, sticky sugar will make a coarse, sticky cake," said Mrs. Arm strong, "lise fine, dry granulated sugar, which if less sweet bulk lot hulk for the crystal sugar wiir not make a delicate batter." * The lecturer gave many other bits of useful Information about cake materials, explaining the advantage of two mixed flavors over one flavor giving explicit directions about heat ing eggs and creaming the shorten ings and talking straight throush al the other cake making processes Then she began the mixing of the ma tertals to form the batter. Mixing Important. "The delicate grain of a cake de Pends mor<* on the mixing than on anything else.” said Mrs. Armstrong, as she put the cake together. "A close, fine texture that will keep moist for several days can only be obtained b) fc eating," she reminded her Ilstetiaiv "Many women stir the cake batter fight In the center of the bowl and imagine that their loaf will be even in grain, she said, "when as a matter of fact the only way to keep a cake uniform in texture is to beat the mix ture constantly and keep the sides of the howl well scraped so that the ma terials will be thoroughly blended.” W hen the hatter had been mixed to the proper consistency, Mrs. Arm strong exhibited it by creamy spoon fuls to the audience, showing the cor rect thickness and appearance of a well made batter. Site then went into the details of putting the hatter in the pans. V Guard Against Puffy Cakes. "Push the hatter up against the sides of the pan so that the mixture is about half as thirty in the center as ,t is on the sides.” she directed the women, "and never fill the pan more than two-thirds full. If these direc tions are carefully followed, the cake will hake evenly all over and not puff up in the middle as inanv cakes seem to have the habit, of doing. "The baking of cakes is just as ini IKirtant for a successful outcome,” she continued, "as the making of the batter. Place the two layers, if it is made in two layers, directly in the center of the two top oven racks, and close the door on them. "Then," she told hot- interested lis teners, with a calmness that nia-le them gasp, “turn the oven flame en tirely out for ten minutes.” Nobody seemed to have heard of turning out the oven flame while the cake was in the stove, and an excited volley of questions followed the di rection. Mrs. Armstrong explained thal the oven had been thoroughly heated for ten minutes and thal if the flame was turned entirely out for ten minutes the heat would be sufficient to Insure a proper rising of the cake. Three Periods in Baking. There are three periods in the bak ing of the cake, so said Mrs. Arm strong. First, when the. cake is merely rising; second, when the oven burner, only half force, is lighted again, when the cake llnlshes rising and begins to color, and third, when tlie cake fin ishes baking, separates slightly from the sides of the pan and settles evenly over the top. These different baking degrees may be observed by every housewife. Cakes fall, Mrs. Armstrong ex plained. because too much shortening was user! in the making of the batter, because the mixture is too soft In con sistency, or because the cakes have* not been properly or sufficiently bak ed. Cakes should not he handled for the decoration until they have thor oughly cooled. When the trim maid passed -the decoratod cake about in the audience, 1 coated in mocha Icing, made by a cold process, and stuccoed with crusn ed brown almonds, and bits of crystu' ized fruits, admiring comments fol lowed its process about a large room. A broken loaf was also displayed ,t show the tine, even delicate texture of the cake, and the cake was served to those who could get a taste of it. Tile cake was a beautiful success ii. every way. GOMEZ IN DILEMMA. Orozco Threatens Him and He Cannot Return to United States. Han An'onio, Texas, .vyiy 8.—'Discon certed at reports that Orozco has threaten to imprison Senor Emilio Vassn *37, if he did not leave Mexico at once, and equally perturbed at the possibility of his arrest it he crosses back into the United States, -local | sympathizers of the new provisional president of Mexico today sent him a. telegram asking for an explicit out line of conditions. At the same time, a message was sent to .Francisco Guzman, alleged personal secretary of Vasquez Gomez, Mr. Guzman having gone to El Paso three days after Go mez left here. He is now said to be in Juarez, in company with his leader. Of the Vasqulsta junta which has been maintained in -San Antonio for months, only one known attache re mains in the city. At first there were ing David De La Puentes, Llo R. Gomez Robele. Dr. Poliearpo Rueda, Francisco I Guzman and several oth ers. IDe La Puentes went to Chihua hua to join Orozco's command as chief of artillery: Gomez Rftbelo went to attach his force to the command of Emilio P.

All is in readiness for the two hi?; features of tomorrow, the election of j a commander-in-chief to succeed the late General George W. Gordon and j the parade of the long line of Gray that will file through wide and shaded streets of Macon in the annual march of old and feeble men, who fought for the Confederacy. Chattanooga^ success in the fight for the 1913 reunion came at the close of a ratber stormy session, although the uproar which retarded the pro gress of the program was not alto gether the outcome of the fight, for the next meeting place, it seemed im possible to koeq* order and time and time again General Walker, who was presiding, had lv» rap and shout for order before the business could pro reed. The vote on the 1913 reunion follows: Chattanooga, 1 ,<i4S; Jacksonville, 606; San Antonio. 476. At 5 o'clock this afternoon Cole man's Hill, from which Jefferson Ha vas made his last speech U> Confed erate soldiers, was a bright hued con glomerate mass of people from all over the south, numbering, according to a conservative estimate, 20.000. to wit ness the coronation of Miss Scandett. " Half a dozen bands recruited from Oklahoma to Florida, surrounded the dias and a» the queen and her ladles drove up on a white float, decorated with Idles and American beauty roses, a roar went up from the crowd. The crown was placed upon her head hy Colonel W. A. Harris, chairman of the reunion executive committee. Tonight at the grand ball at the Park audi torium, Miss Scandett and General Ir vine Walker led the cotllllt-n. More than 1,000 couples, daughters of (ho south and grizzled old men danced until long past midnight. Tomorrow, it is generally conceded that General Bennett H. Young of Louisville, Ky., will ho elected com mander-in-chief of tho United Confed erate Veterans. The supporters of Lieutenant General Irvine Walker of Charleston, have not given up the fight, .but It is understood that the entire Georgia. Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky. Florida and I'rans-Mlssls stppi delegates are pledged to General Young, a*s against the strength of tile Virginias, Maryland and the Carolinas for General Walker. iUhen the report of the committee on resolutions was read, it was found that one clause dealt with General Trimble's invitation for a "joint re union" of the Blue and Gray at Get tysburg, July 3. 4, 5 and H, and recom mended that the invitation he de cilntMi. The convention as a whole, howev er, struck out that, clause and* prac tically unanimously adopted in its stead one written tiy General C. Ir vine Walker, accepting the invitation. The Resolution in part says: "Whereas. General H. M. Trimble, commander in chief of the Grand Arm* of the Republic, voicing the common sentiments of 1ii» comrades, has Issued an invitation to the Unit ed Confederate VetcranVi to partici pate in all good fellowship with the Grand Army of the Republic in the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg, which In vitation is clothed in the most patri otic sentiments, which sentiments so nobly expressed, we most 'highly honor; "Therefore, he ft Resolved, That the United Confederate Veterans cordial ly reciprocate the fraternity ro warm ly shown in this invitation and gladly accept in the same RpWdt. of pure pa triotism and sincere good will in which it has-been extended. ^Phat the United Confederate Vet erans most earnestly and heartily unitp with the Grand Army of the Re public in the hope that This event may mark the fiual and complete reconcil iation of those of the opposing armies of 5« years ago gnd the permanent establishment of harmonious "and fra ternal relations between the north and the south, and that it may gladden the hearts of all our countrymen. "That to induce the largest possible attendance of Confederate Veterans at said celebration *and to represent the United Confederate Veterans in any cooperative effort with the Grand Army of the Republic, the Pennsyl vania-Gettysburg commission or oth ers in matters relating to the afore said celebration, a committee be ap pointed consisting of General C. Ir vine Walker, chairman, and one vet eran from each of the United Confed erate Veteran divisions. The discussion on the Gettysburg North and South reunion was very brief. None of those objecting speed fled the reason for objection beyond that. It was a constitutional breach. The resolution was passed amid cheers. TAFT SCORESJ ROOSEVELT MW Vi — SAYS HE HAS MISREPRESENTED FACTS IN Ht8 CAMPAIGN FOR THE PRESIDENCY. President Denies He Is Allied With the Bosses—Grows Sarcastic in His Denunciation of Roose velt Methods. I Columbus, Ohio, May .—President Taft charged here tonight In a speech that Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, his campaign manager, Senator Dixon of Montana, and democrats In the sen ate were reaponsble for the "emas culation" of the arbitration treaties with Grat Britain and France and ttiat, in consequence of their action the pacts were so changed as lew be of doubtful utility. The treaties, the president declared, would have made "wide steps toward universal peace; would have signalized a movement for a universal arbitral court and were as progressive • measures as ever suggested to the American peo ple." "For some reason unknown to my puzzle wltted brain," said the presi dent, ‘‘Mr. Roosevelt opifosed these treaties and by those men who sup ported that opposition, his manager, Mr. Dixon, and the democratic votes in the senate, those treaties were so emasculated that It is difficult to see whether they contain anything of value which ought to he ratified into a treaty.” Mr, Taft's address tonight, was the last scheduled for his present tour through his home state. He contin ued his attack on Colonel Roosevelt, taking up more than a dozen sub jects that Mr. Roosevelt has--referred to in Ills speeches against the presi dent. Mr. Taft openly accused Mr. Roosevelt of misrepresentation and mis statement. The president dwelt at length on the Roosevelt charges that he was the friend of the boss and the tool of the special interests. He pointed out the failure of the 'Rloosevelt ad , ministration to prosecute the steel trust and the harvester trust, and con trasted that with the altitude of his own administration which has filed suits against both. Although he care fully explained that he did not wish to charge Mr. Roosevelt with any thing improper, the president re ciewed the circumstances under which the Roosevelt administration decided not to institute proceedings against these trunsts or against any of the "Morgan interests." Replying to the statement that the decree of the supreme court in tho Standard Oil and American Tobacco Company cases were really of benefit to those trusts because oil has gone up and the stock of both companies has cone up. President Taft told why he believed these resorted from nat ural economic causes. "They say oil has gone up and they say the stock of these constltue.it companies has gone up,” ssid Mr. Taft. It Is true that they have gone up, and why? Because in the dis solution the facts had to come out and the stockholders who were hold ing stock down low had to reveal to the public generally that th'8y had a great deal more money In those com panies than the public had known. Secondly they say that oil has gone up. Well it has and crude oil has gone up, too, and why? Bi-cause un der the Standard Oil Company as )t was, they rould control the purchase of crude oil and they kept crude oil down. I know what I nt talking alMitit. because I had to approve contracts down in the Indian Territory with re spect to oii. The price went down, suppressed by the Standard Oil, so that we did not know what to do with those Indian lands. Now, because competition has come about and pe> pie are bidding for that oil, crude oil has gone up and the price of oil gen erally has gone up. "Then about the tobacco business They Hay that decree is a sham. Well, what Is the effect of It? Don't you remember out In Kcntucsy the ha.I night riders. They killed people ami they drove them off of their farina in order to reduce the supply of hurley tobacco, because they could not get any prlcve for it and that was b: cause the tobacco trust went In there and bought what they wantod ^n<! paid the price they wanted. Now hurley tobacco has gone up under the competitions that have coine In the-o by the various companies in whi h this tobacco trust lias been divided.' Answering the Roosevelt charge of a Taft alliance with bosses, the pros! dent criticised his predecessor for al tempting to inject Into a national campaign ip'cstions which properly concern the states and with which a president has no direct .ooucern. "Mr Roosevelt said 1 was not onlj In ravor of an aristocracy or an oligarchy, but he said that I was In favor of an oligarchy of .bosses and that made the issue between the peo ple against the bosses and that ad the bosses were for me aud they all opposed him.” asserted Mr. Ta*t, "Well, I'm not in favor of machine politics. We have to have organ izations, but 1 am Just as much op posed to bosses, in (he sense that Mr. Roosevelt wishes you to understand that term, as he Is. “Now, there must be a good deal of vagueness and misunderstanding about this business of bosses. . . . 1 don't promise you, If I'm elected, that all the bosses will die. but? I have recommended something that will assist in ending the abuse of that system, hut I have not heard any ap proval from anybody that was so loud that I could hear It. That Is, I have recommended that all these of fices which are now treated as po litical offices be put in the classified civil service. 1 have done that with three congresses, hut 1 have not heard any Macedonian call either from Mr. Roosevelt or anybody else about the passage of that bill.” In discussing uie recall Mr. Taft appealed to the negro voters to thing over what might, become of them if the recall of decisions became permis sible. Mr. Taft made seventeen speeches during the day.. His fellow Ohioans turned out in good numbers and listened attentively to his argu ments. although interruptions and comments from the crowds were com paratively few. At Ironton the president declared he was a lawyer and a judge, not a pubuicity agent. RICHESON NOT A MORMON. Senator Smoot Denies Report Regard ing Convicted Ministed. Washington, May 8.—.Senator Smoot of Utah, today gave out a statement in which he denied that Rev. Clarence V. T. Richeson of Boston, Mass., was a member of the Mormon church. Sen ator Smoot said: The statement of Mrs. Louise E Brittain that Clarence V. T. Richeson is an elder in the Mormon church is a malicious falsehood. Richeson is not, nor ever has been an elder, or even a member of the Mormon church, I am Informed that Mrs. Brittain was ex-communicated from the church a few years ago. , A desir* to injure and cast reflections upon the Mormon church is undoubtedly the reason fur her statement.” FLOOD WAFER ONE THOUSAND RESCUED NEAR TORRAS AND HUNDREDS MORE ON THE HOUSETOP'S. / ' ^ — Current So Swift That Houses Have Been Washed Away—Situation at New Orleans !s Still Unchanged. New Hoads, 1m , May 8.—The water from the Torras crevasse is running Into this place tonight. Three-ftxutrths I of Point* Coupee parish, is under wa ter and is rapidly spreading./* More than 1,009 person*, made des titute and homeless, have passed through this place today on their way to the several concentration camps. Probably 250 were white. Many were taken from housetops after long ex posure and they wore in a plttabt* Condition. Many required medical at tention upon their arrival. ■Hundreds are yet In the Inundated country waiting to be rescued and the work will continue as rapidly as mo tor Imats will permit. :A force of workmen was rushed to I at Pour, eight miles north of Mor ganza, today, where reports Indicate the levee is In bad shape. The party of rescuers operating from here have gone a long way into the Interior, where the current Is extreme ly swift and navigation particularly difficult and dangerous. At Oowhoad Bayou, houses are be ing washed away and large trees up rooted, so swift is the current. Scores of refugees are reported Isolated on the remaining levee* along that stream hopefully waiting to he picked yip by rescue boats. The Texas and Pacific railroad track is about all the land above water ex cept here andjhere smalt pat.i-hea of land covered with bellowing cattle. Situation at New Orleans. New Orleans, La., May 8.—Fighting against time and the rushing flood wa ters of the Mississippi river, scores of relief parties, Ial>orlng with contrary motor boats and leaky barges, today succeeded in bringing in refugees by the hundreds to the different points between Baton Rouge and Natchez still above the water. Many lives have been lost in north east l-oiilslana. ? Nearly every Incoming boat is load ed, mostly wllh women and children, and the thrilling tales of adventures * I In the swift currents from the Torraij crevasse, which tonight was reported 8.000 feet wide, were only repetitions of previous .lays. The United States army officers are actively engaged tn directing affairs and nothing Is left undone lhat can be done to get. the hundreds of people yet remaining in the stricken district to places of safety. It is estimated that more than 150.000 people are in the concentra tion camps. Stories of dwellings and cabins be ing swept away with their occupants are told every day. while today a farmer coming into New Rords told of an entire negro family, the father excepted being swept away with their cabin. %A negro baby was swept from its mother's lap and drowned when the water rushed through the front door. There were nt> more breaks In the main line levees today, though there were many rumors and considerable excitement. The work of strengthen ing the embankments is continuing under, the direction of the officers of the United States engineer corps, who gave out reassuring reports tonight. A few rrfarc days, of sunshine, they say, will be more beneficial than any thing else. KNOX ilN FRISCO. Secretary Spend* Bu»y Day In Panama Exposition.
