H DINNING I yif Furniture Company 000 A YEAR FROM 75 ACRES t experience shows the possi es of a small farm properly iged, ami an economical way of asing soil efficiency. I have 75 i, 60 of which are under culti n. Every foot is fertile and lie, and everything is made to t The farm is divided into 1 fields: Field A, 30 acres; B, 20 acres; field C, 10 acres. Edllow a carefully planned system itations, and find that this, with manure from my live stock, b the soil up to a high state of ity. The rotation is as follows:] year, field A, wheat, followed clover, peas, etc. Field B, 15 acres, oats 5 acres. Field itton. Second year field A. corn :res, cotton 10 acres, both follow dth rye, vetch, etc., in the fall. B, wheat; field C oats. Third field A wheat followed with ne crops. Field B corn 10 acres and cotton 10 acres. Field C clover. With this schedule the areas of the different crops vary slightly, and the varying conditions of feed are met by varying the number of live stock retained and fattened on the farm, and balancing, as far as pos sible, the feeds given. With the ex ception of cotton seed hulls and meal, 1 never find it necessary to purchase feed of any kind. Following are so\ae average yearly yields of crops and production of livestock for sale: Wheat 30 bush els an acre; corn 40 to 60; oats 60 to 85; cotton a bale an acre; hay sufficient for own use; potatoes 200 bushels an acre; livestock sold, 20 hogs, 3 two year old mules; three cows with first calves: 300 dozen eggs; 1,000 pounds butter; 200 to 300 bushels potatoes, both Irish and sweet; fruit and vegetables in vary ing quantities, besides sufficient for home use, both fresh and canned. My yearly income from the 75 acres is better than $3,000, and I do practically all the work myself, do not work overtime, am never rush ed. and can always find time for rest and recreation. I attribute my suc cess to maximum soli efficiency as a result of proper handling. In my case semi-intensive farming has paid handsomely.—W. H. Thorp in The Progressive Farmer. PREVENTABLE FIRES The National Board of Fire Un derwriters says: "Our greatest enemy is prevent able fire and this loss also has its effect upon the high cost of living. It is a matter of individual respon • sibility and it must be realized that every preventable fire, big or little, is to some degree an aid and com fort to the enemy. I There are 1,500 fires every day in the year in this country, i The annual fire waste equals the value of 30,000 aeroplanes at $7,500 apiele, and military experts declare that that number would certainly win the war. Again, if it could be applied to their contsruction, the annual fire waste would supply our navy with [ 150 torpedo boat destroyers, and such an added force would end the menace of the submarines. The United States burns up every year enough property to pay interest upon more than three two billion dollar liberty loans. The lives of multitudes of children are threatened in the war stricken sections of Europe, and we are told that ten cents per day per child .would provide for their immediate necessities. Six million of such lit tle ones could be supported at' the cost of our senseless annual de struction by fire. An investment of $60,000 will equip a hospital capable of caring for 500 sick and wounded. Our an nual fire waste would provide three thousand such hospitals, If the mon ey could be thus converted. What right has anyone to assume that all of these fires will occur upon the premises of other people? Unless every man resolves that there shall be no such occurrence on the property controlled by him and makes his resolve effective by means i of immediate inspection and cor I rection of all fire hazards, he can ' not be considered a true patriot no matter what may be considered his , professions. -O'— ■ ■ .

Home Lumber Co. “Headquarters for Home Builders’’ 1 Every Time Housewife Prepare* a Meal She Is Helping To Decide How Long War Will La*t. By Mrs. Ruth Peck McLeod, State Ur- j ban Emergency Agent, Extension Division, University of Arkansas. I Every time the housewife prepares ' a meal she is helping to decide just I how long the war w'll last. With her rests the responsibility of choosing wisely from the meager supply of meat, fat, sugar and wheat whiota must run not only the family but the American Army and the Allies as well. Instead of spending the time in sentiment, thinking of the horror of the war, site had better put her shoulder to the wheel during the holt days and begin, if she has not al ready done so, to take up the most difficult of problems: How to conserve the supply of food In the World's larder. Let the housewives learn the "how” of serving war me. nun. The following suggestions should be helpful in making preparations tor Christmas: Special Recipe*. ■Whole Wheat: Select clpan, whole wheat. Wash and then let soak over night; cook In a double boiler in the same water in which the wheat has soaked until it ia thoroughly tender. If possible, use a firelese cooker for the cookery of all breakfast foods. | Thia insures thorough cooking. Brown Rice: The brown rice should be looked over, washing in a sieve and then added gradually to rapidly boiling water. Let boil for one hoar, then let dry out and serve. Try to have aa little water as is possible at the end of the cooking Drain the rice and lot dry out so aa to separate the grains. Never throw away any liquid from the brown rice as It con tains Triable minerals. Reserve this liquor and use it In soup making, bread making, etc. Cornmeal, Wheat Flour Biscuits: Two cups cornmeal, 2 teaspoons salt, 4 teaspoons shortening. 2 cups sifted flour, 4 teaspoon* baking powder, li quid sufficient to mix. Bake about 12 minutes or until light brown. In the same way may be used rice (tour, soy bean flour, whole wheat, oatmeal, bar ley, sorghum grains, peanut meal, etc. Sweet Potato Muffins: One and one-half cup mashed cooked sweet po tatoes, one tpaspoon salt, two table spoons shortening, milk sufficient to make a stiff batter (about one-half cup). Colion Seed Flour Cookies: One cup cottonseed flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons mixed ground spices, 2 tablespoons butter, 2 cups white sift -ed flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 3-4 cup sugar, 1 egg. milk sufficient to mix rather stiff. May use in same way cornmeal, oatmeal, rice flour, peanut meal, soy bean meal, whole •wheat, etc. With soy beans omit egg. Rlcs and Wheat Gems: One cup ground brown rice, one cup sifted white flour, 3 teaspoons baking pow der, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 eggs, 1 cup wneat meal, 1 1-2 teaspoons salt, 2 ta blespoons sugar. 2 tablespoons short ening. milk sufficient for medium bat ter (about 1 1-2 eup*). The yeast breads are to be preferred aa they require little or no shortening and are far more healthful. However, special recipes for the use ’of wheat breads may be obtained by writing to the Extension Division of the Univer sity of Arkansas, Old Statehouse, Lit tle Rock, Ark. GENERAL PRINCIPLES TO BE USED IN PLANNING AND PRE PARING WAR MENUS. 1. Avoid fried foods, thereby con serving the fat supply and promoting greater esse of digestion. S. Use cooked breakfast foods sock M mush, oatmeal, brown rice, whole whestt. etc.. In the place of the more expensive “prepared" foods, each as oorx flakes, puffed rice, etc. t. Use skimmed milk for the adults and whole milk for the chil dren. 4 Cook all vegetables so aa to oonserve the mineral. Cook potatoes with their jackets on. Never discard the liquor in which vegetables have been cooked. Use it for soups and whit* sauce. 5. In preparing dried foods, wash them H"d put them to soak. When ready to cook, use the water for cook ing in which the soaking has taken , place. Otherwise (he food materials in the water in which the food is plumped are lost. 4. Meat should be used very spar ingly. The cheaper, tougher cuts may ] bo purchased and ground in a meat ehopper at home. Do not buy the •‘hamburger" or “meat loaf" already prepared. Do not use veal or Imma ture poultry for foods. Instead, use flah, mature poultry, rabbits, etc., tf one feels the need of meat. Beans, peas, cheese, milk, eggs, nuts, etc., are ! the preferable substitutes. 7. Use less wheat—if wheat flour ! is employed, use only the graham ■ flour made of the entire wheat grain. ! Shorts, middlings and bran make a ] very good bread. g. Use less sugar. Leave cakes out of the menus, and especially the rich, i frosted cakes. Use. instead, hard fruit ! cookies containing raisins, prune*, dates, etc., which contain the natural fruit sugar. STRAIGHT SILHOUETTE STILL A FAVORITE New York. Nov. 26.—There is no telling where the fad for matching the hat, scarf and muff will end. Indeed, it is one of the most im portant features of the present style, whether the material used be wool, fur or knitted affairs. Scotch wool embroidered in thistles or some other appropriate conventional design is very popular. The cravat is quite long enough to wrap around the neck twice and cross in the front or the back. Of course, the charm of these sports accessories is the air of carelessness with which they are worn. One attractive set was of beige duvet yn; soft-brimmed hat. long scarf lined with blue, and tiny muff of the same soft tan with blue show ing at the. ends. Capes are very popular, too, short ones on the order of those worn by the cavaliers of old . © These are of black velvet, fur or plush, and are usually very becom ing. Beaver is a favorite fur for these sets; squirrel, rabbit and mole skin are much worn too. The vest of olden times has returned to favor in many attractive forms. A new idea for the decoration of evening dresses is really a return of the art of stenciling. The soft lus trous silks and taffetas, and even velvets have stenciled designs on the skirts and waists. One charming gown of apricot charmeuse had blue birds stenciled on the bodiec. How could one help being the belle of the ball with such a happy start? The love of the quaint gingham pat terns is still apparent. One charm ing dress in a new play was of rose chiffon in a gingham design. There are several prominent de signers who absolutely ignore the well-launched bustle, declaring that there is only one way to fashion, the straight and narrow way! In this season of contradictions they have many followers, so one may speak with scorn of the bustle if it does not happen to appeal to one, or (of far more importance) if it is unbecoming. Straight pleated skirts In instep length, simple waists and long straight sleeves are the ear marks of the straight dress of 1917. The one illustrated here is of those designs that appeal to the woman of taste. The dress buttons down the center back, with more butttons on the sleeves ftnd shoulders. The but tons and the touch of embroidery on the belt are the only trimmings used. It is simple and dignified, and ap propriate for many occasions. Jersey cloth still continues very popular for a dress of this type. Another charming model developed in this same material was of raisin color. The skirt was shirred around LI1H ii l |in, witn a miikib pucKri uul toned at the seam on the left side with raisin glass buttons; the bodice wide girdle and hip length coat had these same buttons in different widths. High collars are much In vogue, some are of the same material as the costume, with net ruchings; others are of net or lace with deep jabots. One of the big shops here in New York is featuring a collar and-cuff set of tan material on the order of ratine, embroidered in flame or saxe blue in an effective de sign. — .-o WAR OBITUARY Solomon Grundy Married on Monday,.
