PAPER BAG COOKING
WONDER-WORKING SYSTEM PERFECTED BY M. SOYER, WORLD'S GREATEST LIVING CHEF PAPER BAG LUNCHEON. By Martha McCulloch Williams. The luncheon was Its own reason for being—a paper bag function pure and simple. This, however, is not saying, that It would not answer for bridge, indeed, for any mild feminine festivity. This festivity was not strictly feminine. Like the moon, it had a man In it—a man who has eaten in the most famous places all round the world. Praise from him, therefore, was “Approbation from Sir Hubert Stanley.” I meant the paper bag stuff to have It because 1 knew that It deserved it. MENU — Canteloupe a la Frivole Broiled Squab with Bacon Corn Pudding Sweet Potatoes In Syrup Stuped Green Peppers Relishes Spiced Grapes Plum Jelly Tomato Chutney Salad Romalne and Tomatoes, French Dressing Pimento Cheese Sandwiches Dessert Cheesecake Patties Grapes Oranges Peaches Pears After breakfast I put my sweet po tatoes on to boil, choosing them smooth, of even size and neither too big nor too little. In thirty minutes they were done enough and, peeled under cold water to save discolora tion, they were out of hand even be fore I was through making the sand wiches. In the meantime the squab livers had been boiling tender in slightly salted water, with Just a dash of to basco In default of a small red pep per pod. When they were tender, they were mashed fine, with a lump of butter and plenty of browned bread crumbs made ready the day before. The mixing done, I cut out the cores of my green peppers, poured boiling salt water upon them, let it stand just half a minute, then dropped them In cold water, took them out, drained them, and stuffed them with liver and crumbs, after which they were set to watt the hour of cooking. Scraping corn for the pudding 1 found that half a dozen big ears yield ed almost a pint of pulp. Then I beat up three eggs very light, with a big pinch of salt, a tablespoonful of sugar and plenty of red and black pepper. Into the eggs went the corn pulp, after it half a cup of soft butter, last of all a big cup of top-milk, more than half cream. It would not hurt by standing, so It went on ice like the other things. The cheesecakes had been baked the previous afternoon—hence, there remained only the salad, the squab and the cantaloupe to make ready. As soon as my bags were greased I lighted the oven, and by the time I had the corn pudding securely bagged the sweet potatoes smeared with but ter, rolled in sugar, and put in their bag with more b- ttor, sugar and lem on Juice, the oven was ready for them. I gave them each a shelf, put ting the potatoes on the lower one— being already nearly cooked they would take only twelve minutes. When they came out the stuffed pep pers, in a thickly-buttered bag, with a lump of butter and a tablespoonful of water added, took their place. I turned on full heat for three minutes, then slacked it as I had done at Aral. Next I washed and wiped my squab— six beauties, fatter than butter— stuffed them lightly with soft bread crumb, seasoned with salt, pepper, a very little chopped celery and shreds Three Delectables By Nicolas Soyer, Chef of Brooks’ Club, London.

Fowl (Savory Crumb*).—Wash the of tart apple, wrapped them 5n thhl broad bacon s Ices, and put them In their bag. Since they needed no water, the bag could stand a little while un harmed. I Improved the Idle minute by slipping Into my company frock. Safely buttoned up, I went back to work. The corn pudding was done — so were the peppers—they had been In the oven about eighteen minutes. All the bags were Bet in pans down under the oven, protected from the flame by the broiler pan, Inverted. The squab bag now went on the upper oven shelf because I knew they were better If cooked quickly. I left the heat on full for ten minutes, then slacked It a little more than half. Ad Interim, I had been p-eparing the canteloupe, taking out the seed, malt ing tiny cuts In the flesh and sprink ling lightly with sugar, then pouring gently around the Inside of each a spoonful of yellow chartreuse. An experiment, this, but one that I shall repeat—It evoked such enthusiasm. People began coming before the last melon was finished. They trouped In to the kitchen, snifling cheerfully. The dishes sat ready—in a trice, I had out the bags of vegetables. Mur murs of admiration greeted what each of them revealed, and the murmurs swelled to a chorus triumphant when at last the squabs lay plump, Juicy, most delicately browned In their al lotted platter. Luncheon speedily followed the us ual course. We ate the fat, drank the sweet, and found all things good. This I say, not vainglory, but In due meed to paper bag cookery. The only man said, looking up from his plate at last, "I never really tasted squab be fore.” And when the luncheon was over the washing up was greatly shortened by the fact of no pans. ABOLISHES UNSIGHTLY HANDS. In all the many and varied rewards of dlllgenco none are better worth while than those that wait upon dil igent paper bag cooking. Ease Is one of them, deftness another, neat ness In the kitchen still a third. It is quite impossible to make mere words convey all that this method of cookery means —still more Impos sible to set down all that Its use will teach you. For example. Its use will teach you how little art can Improve on nature In matter of flavors. Paper bag cook ing keeps In the flavor, Intensities it, and makes It the sauce of appetite. Good digestion commonly waits on appetite. But there are other things to take Into account. Not the least of them Is the saving to one’s hands and one’s temper In tbo matter of washing up after a ineal. Whether this falls to the cook, to her mistress, or haply, to the gallant man of the house, who thrusts him self helpfully into the roughest part of the work, the fact remains Indis putable that pan scrubbing Is hard work, distasteful In the extreme and bound to leave unpleasant reminders. Pots and pans mean tho use of strong alkalies. Without them the pots can not be kept sanitary. No sort of glove yet devised will permit the free use possible to the bare hand. Tho syl logism runs about thus wise: To cook in the old way. you must have pots, the pots must be kept clean, or else be a constant menace, and to keep them clean requires detergents so powerful they will destroy human cuticle the Bnme as they “cut grease.” Result, rough, reddened, painful hands, in spito of emollients, glove-wearing and so on. The most careful mani curing will not undo the efTect of steady pot-washing.

MAY INTERVENE AMERICANS IN MEXICO ARE RE GARDED AS BEING IN DES PERATE STRAITS. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Washington.—According to advices from Tokio, Japan has secured from Mexico the long-sought concession of a naval base at Magdalena bay, on Mexican soil. The Monroe Doctrine is thus violated. Washington believes Japan has agreed, in return for the concession, to support the Mexican government with men and money. Japanese have long been accredited with preparing for war with the United States. Intervention of the United States in the Mexican revolu tion now seems necessary, and such Intervention would give Mexico ex cuse for appealing to Japan for the help that Nippon would be glad to give against the United States. Americans in Mexico are regarded at Washington as in desperate straits. They may yet be crushed by allied Mexicans and Japanese. If United States troops should start south, those allies may cross the Rio Grande. The Magdalena deal prob ably explains the recent doubling of United States naval strength on the Pacific, for which Washington has not given any satisfactory reason, and also the request made recently that all steamers from United States ports to Mexican ports should be held m readiness for any service that the war and navy departments might ask. Announcement of the granting of the concession also throws new light upon the shipping to the United States ambassador in Mexico City of an Indefinite number of army rifles and an immense quantity of ammuni tion. Despite the state department's formal declaration that It has "abso lutely no information on the report that Japan has secured a naval base at Magdalena bay, Mexico, it is t lieved here that news of tho move reaching here several days ago, has been a fruitful source of the anxiety plainly admitted by the state depart ment officials as to the Mexican situ ation. The' Japanese victory was made public in the following dispatch from 'i okio: "It is reported hero (In Tokio) that negotiations between Mexico and Japan were concluded a few days ago for the establishment of a large Jap anese settlement at Magdalena bay, but an American protest based on the Monroe Doctrine is expected.” One year ago the American consul at Manzanillo reported to the depart ment that Japan was endeavoring to obtain a naval base ostensibly for her merchant vessels. Publicity and prompt hints from the administration that such a move would be regarded as a violation of the Monroe Doctrine led to official denials from the Japan ese anibassador here. Ever since that date the United States has kept closo watch on every move toward the granting of such a base to Japan. While the administration has here tofore denied that Japan’s negotiations were successful, it is considered sig nificant that the latest report merely met. with the statement that there was no "information on the subject" Rebels Cut Federals to Pieces. Juarez, Mexico.—Of the Twentieth Mexican infantry only thirty-five men are still alive. Of the Twenty-ninth Mexican infantry (hero are only fifty survivors. Only three line officers in both regiments remain. After the battle of Jimlnez. when Orozco's rebels routed the federals in a bloody conflict, only these officers and a handful of men straggled back to Torreon —the broken remnant of two of the best regiments in the Mexi can army which Madero had hurled against the triumphant insurrectos. This information, the first definite nows that has been received from the scene of the slaughter of the Ma derlsta army in the four-day battle near Jimlnez, was brought here by a miner who made his way through the rebel ranks by automobile to the railroad after the frightful blood-let ting, which began a week ago. .

"Miss Marie Corelli, like all female novelists, Is a firm believer In marry ing for love.” -* The speaker, an editor of a wom an’s magazine, was taking tea at the Colony club In New York. She con tinued, a nut sandwich poised near her mouth: "I argued and wrangled about love matches with Miss Corelli one whole day In her old-tashioned Stratford home, but she rather got the better of me at the end with an epigram: 11 'She who marries for love,' Miss Corelli said, ‘enters heaven with her eyes shut. She who marries without love enters hell with them open.’ ” SHE QUIT COFFEE And Much Good Came From It. It Is hard to believe that coffee will put a person In such a condition as It did a woman of Apple Creek, O. She tells her own story: "I did not believe coffee caused my trouble, and frequently said I liked It so well I would not quit drinking It, even If It took my life, but I was a miserable sufferer from heart trouble and nervous prostration for four years. “I was scarcely able to go around at all. Had no energy, and did not care for anything. Was emaciated and had a constant pain around my heart until I thought I couljj not endure It. I felt as though I was liable to die any time. "Frequently I had nervous chills and the least excitement would drive sleep away, and any little noise would up set me terribly. I was gradually get ting worse until finally one day. It came over me, and 1 asked myself what is the use of being sick all the time and buying medicine so that I can indulge myself in coffee? "So I thought I would see if I could quit drinking coffee, and got soma Postum to help me quit. I made It strictly according to directions, and I want to tell you that change was the greatest step In my life. It was easy to quit coffee because' I had the Postum which I like better than I liked the old coffee. One by one the old troubles left, until now I am in splendid health, nerves steady, heart all right, and the pain all gone. Never have any more nervous chills, don’t take any medicine, can do all my housework, and have done a great deal besides. “My sister-in-law, who visited me this summer had been an invalid for some time, much as I was. I got her to quit coffee and drink Postum. She gained five pounds in three weeks, and I never saw such a change In any one's health.” "There’s a reason.” Bto read the above letter? A aew oae appears from time to time. They are- i.-enalae, tree, rod full of hmoaa latereat. An Easier Job. “An easy job will suit me, senator." “How about winding the clock* every week?’’ “I might make that do. But what * the matter with my tearing the leaves oft Nie calendar every month?’’ Wisdom of Father. “My dad knows'mor'n George Wash ington did,” said the small boy. “How’s that?” queried the grocer. “Last night,” continued the small boy, “when I told dad I hadn’t been skatin’ he sed he know’d better, an* gimme a lickin’ for lyin’. Georg* Washington couldn’t tell a lie, but dad kin tell one the minute he hears it.” Remarkable Confidence. The mortorlst dashed up to the curb and alighted in a cloud of dust. Hail ing a well dressed pedestrian, ha cried: "Watch my machine for a minute, will you?” The well dressed individual snorted with rage. “Do you know that I am a United States senator?” he ejaculated. “Well, what of it?” said the nu> torist. “I’ll take a chance.” Deep-Sea Version. Tommy Cod —What is it they call a pessimist, pa? Pa Cod—A pessimist, my son, is a fish who thinks there is a hook In every worm!—Puck. Wanted—A Cinch. "So,” said the good man, "you lnr tend to be a doctor when you grow up.” “Yep,” Tommy replied. "And why have you decided upon the medical profession?" “Well, a doctor seems to be the only man that keeps right on gettin’ paid whether his work is satisfactory or not” Modem Problems.

Rising to the Occasion. “Fifty dollars!” cried Batkins, after the judge had named the fine. “Why, Judge, that’s an outrage. I admit I was going too fast, but fifty dollars—” "Them’s the figgers,” said the judge, coldly. “All right, I’ll pay,” said Batkins, “but I’ll tell you right now, I’ll never come through this town again." “That so?" said the Judge. “Wa-al, by gorry, I’m sorroy.

"He says, papa,” the silvery vole* announced, impersonally, “he says that he rarely goes to bed before 1, but It seems to him that it is a matter of personal preference merely, and that if he were in your place he would go now if he felt sleepy!” HOWARD E.
