Champ Clark Wanted to Know About
It, and the Clerk Gave Him
the Information.
Champ Clark lli*es shirts that have
a small red stripe. Not long ago he
went Into the shop of a Washington
haberdasher to buy u dross shirt. Se
lecting one, lie gave the clerk a $lO
bill, and while waiting for his change
wandered around looking at the shirts
displayed. But let the former speaker
tell us about it, says The Nation’s
“I found a fine shirt with small red
stripes and I like to wear that kind.
During the war you could not get a
slilrt with red stripes which would
not fade. I said to the clerk:
“ ‘What Is the price of that shirt?’
“ ‘Three dollars.’
“ ‘Give me that and take It out of
the ten.’
“When he came back with the
change he did not have enough and 1
called his attention to It.
“ ‘You are gouging me. What Is that
extra thirty cents for?’
“‘That,’ replied the clsrk, ‘is the
sales tax that you d fools enacted
up there in congress'”
Too Expensive.
“Throw any old shoes at, the bride?”
“Not much. If I had any old shoes
to throw away I’d get ’em fixed up
and wear ’em.”

Half of Battle Is to Have All
Equipment Prepared and in
Readiness for Use.
Many People Prefer to Can Juices
Unsweetened, as Individual Flav.
ors Are Best Preserved—Many
Utensils Needed.
Fruits can be successfully canned
without sugar, and vegetables require
none. So the wise housekeeper Is
planning to can as much or more than
usual this year. Plenty of canned
vegetables reduce grocery and doctor’s
bills and odd pleasing variety to the
diet in winter. Fruit canned without
sweetening can be sweetened when It
is used. Fruit Juices, too, can be
canned without sugar. Indeed, many
prefer to can them unsweetened, main
taining that the Individual flavors are
thereby best preserved. Part of the
canned Juices can be mode info Jelly
next winter. Making Jelly when the
weather Is cool rather than when the
mercury lingers in the 90’s appeals to
many housewives as a sane and sensi
ble procedure.
Getting Ready.
If one waits until the fruit is half
ripe before making any preparation
to take care if it, there is loss of time,
'and the season of that particular prod
uct is likely to pass before all the
equipment for canning is in readiness.
One of the first steps is to order
a Conner, if you are planning to use
one this summer. A wash boiler or
lard can with a fulse bottom will hold
the cans and process them efficiently.
The work, however, can be done more
easily with one of the commercial
types of canners. As the stock is
usually low when the canning season
Is under way, It is well to select the
kind you want In advance when there
is a choice. The steam-pressure type
Is usually preferred for general can
ning, hut the water seal and water
bath are both popular with those who
want a canner which costs less monev.
If jars are needed, a supply should
be laid in early. The tops of both
the old and new jars should be gone
over carefully and all the rough edges
With a Knife or Some Similar Instru
ment Smooth Away Any Sharp Edges
on Jar Top.
smoothed down with a knife. There
is no danger then that they will cut
the rubber. This is something that
can be gotten out of the way before
tlie season opens. •
Test Rubbers Carefully.
One of the make of rubbers which
is to be used should be tested. A
good rubber —one that will stand up
under the heat which long cooking
in the can entails —must possess elas
ticity enough to allow its being fold
ed and pinched without breaking, say
specialists of the United States de
partment of agriculture. Another
test is its ability to hold 13 pounds’
weight without breaking . when this
weight is suspended by a hook from
the rubber ring.
Whatever type of apparatus is used
for processing or sterilizing, a number
of utensils are needed for properly
handling the products. These include
five or six good porcelain sauce pans
or those of some material that is
acid proof, with covers for use in
handling and blanching acid fruits,
two tablespoons, one set of measur
ing spoons, one wire basket or several
yards of cheesecloth for use In
blanching, six wiping cloths, two hand
towels, one duplex fork for lifting
hot Jars, and several sharp paring
knives. Look over your supply and
see If you hove them in stock.
It Is Satisfactory Whon Mixed With
Cream Cheese—Chopped Nuts
May Be Added.
For a change, try honey and cream
cheese sandwiches. Mix honey with
cream cheese and use as filling for
bread or baking powder biscuit sand
wiches. Chopped nut may be added
to the honey and cheese if desired.
Favorite Where Difficult to Get
Satisfactory Yeast.
Recipe Recommended by Home Ecp
nomice Kitchen of Department ef
Agriculture—Fireleea Cooker
Maintains Temperature.
1 Self-rising bread, which is com
monly called by the misleading name
of "salt-rising bread,’’ has been known
in one form or another for generations.
It has been a particular favorite when
and where it was difficult to get satis
factory yeast. The following recipe Is
recommended by the home economics
kitchen of the United States depart
ment of agriculture:
1 cup sweet milk 1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons white 1 tablespoon butter
corn meal (if used)
1 teaspoon salt Flour
Scald the milk. Allow It to cool un
til It is lukewarm, then add the salt,
sugar and corn meal. Place in a fruit
can or a heavy crock or pitcher and
surround by water at about 120 to 140
degrees F. Water at this temperature
|s the hottest In which the hand can
be held without inconvenience, and
can be secured by mixing nearly equal
parts of boiling water and tap water
(unless the tap watet* Is unusually
warm). If placed in a fireless cooker
a fairly even temperature can be main
tained for several hours.
Allow the mixture to stand for six
or seven hours, or overnight, until it
shows signs of fermentation. If It has
fermented sufficiently the gas can be
heard as it escapes. This leaven con
• tains enough liquid for one loaf. If
more loaves are needed add one cup
of water, one teaspoon of salt, one
tablespoon of sugar and one tablespoon
of butter for each additional loaf.
Make a soft sponge by adding a cup
of flour for each loaf to be made. Beat
thoroughly and put the sponge in a
convenient receptacle and surround by
water again at the temperature of
about 120 to 140 degrees F.
When the sponge Is filled with tiny
gas bubbles and hns more than
doubled in volume add more flour grad
ually until the dough is so stiff that it
can be kneaded without sticking to
the hands or to the hoard. Knead ten
or fifteen minutes, put at once Into the
pans, allow to rise until about two and
one-half times its original hulk, and
bake. Seif-rising bread Is never so
light as the bread raised with yeast.
A loaf made with one cup of liquid
therefore will come not quite up to the
top of a pan of standard size.
Nourishing and Substantial Dish Is
Well Liked by Majority of
Farm People.
A mixed vegetable chowder is a sub
stantial disli and one well liked by
the majority of people for luncheon or
supper. The following recipe Is one
recommended by the home economic
specialists of the United States de
partment of agriculture:
2 tablespoonfuls fat, 4 potatoes,
or a piece of salt 3 carrots,
pork. 3 onions.
3 level tablespoon- 1 pint canned to
fuls flour. matoes.
2 teaspoonfuls salt. 2 cupfuls skim milk.
Cut potntoes and carrots in small
pieces, add enough water to cover, and
cook for 20 minutes. Do not drain off
the water. Brown the chopped onion
in the fat for five minutes. Add this
and the tomatoes to the vegetables.
Heat to boiling, add two cupfuls of
skim milk, and thicken with flour.
Celery tops or green peppers give a
good flavor, too.
Best Results Secured by Placing Them
in Double Boiler and Not Stir
the Mixture.
In experiments made in the home
economic department of the United
States department of agriculture it has
been found that it is best for almost
every purpose to put corntneal and
cold water together and then heat
them over boiling water in a double
boiler. Except when very finely
ground meals are used it is unneces
sary to stir the mixture at any time,
not even when the meal and water are
put together. The conclusion has been
reached that in all cases the best re
sults are obtained by heating the meal
and liquid together without stirring.

Club Work Is Important Because
It Has Such Large Possi
bilities, Says Secretary.
Department of Agriculture and Oth
er* Endeavoring to Make Farm*
of Country More Profitable
and Home Life Pleasant.
(By E. T. MEREDITH, Secretary of
I want to say just a few words to
the farm boys and girls, and the older
people need not bother to read It at all.
Now, you and I know that the boys’
and girls' club work represents one of
the most important lines of agricul-,
tural activity In the United States
today. I believe it is important, be*
cause It has such large possibilities.
We men and women who are trying to
Improve farming and farm life will
be out of the game when you boys
and girls are just reaching the prime
of life. You have the advantage of
us, because you are learning the prin
ciples of good agriculture and home
making while you are still young
enough to learn to the best advantage
Club Boys With Their Purebred
and to apply In a practical way the
knowledge thus gained throughout
your whole lives.
Accomplishing Much Good.
Even as boys and girls you are ac
complishing more good than can be
measured. The good that you will be
able to do will increase as you grow
older and, when you become full-grown
men and women, you can supply for
the agricultural forces of this nation
a leadership such as the world has
never known before.
I congratulate the boys and girls’
club members. And I would like to
ask a favor of the boys and girls who
are not members of the clubs. We are
trying—the United States department
of agriculture, the state agricultural
colleges, and a great many other peo
ple—to make the farms of this coun
try more profitable and home life on
the farm more pleasant. I wish the
rest of you boys and girls would Join
with those who are already members
of the clubs and help us in accomplish
ing this great service for our common
country. It is a patriotic thing to do;
and It is a service that cannot be
rendered by anybody except you boys
and girls.
Biggest Year In History. •
The year 1920 should be the biggest
year In the history of boys’ and girls*
club work, and I am confident that it
will be. The country Is facing a diffi
cult situation, because so many men
have left the farms to work in the
city. The good, work that the club
boys and girls can do will help to over
come that handicap, and the club boys
and girls will do that kind of work
this year. It may hearten you to
know that many of us here In the de
partment of agriculture look upon the
boys’ and girls’ clubs much as Caesar
must have looked upon the Tenth Le
gion or Napoleon upon the Old Guard.
The other forces may full, but we
know thnt we can rely on you.
I might not be willing to see you un
dertake such senious service if I did
not know that, while you work hard,
you play Joyously together. I am sure
that the boys and girls in the clubs
have better times than the boys and
girls who are not in the clubs, and that
is an additional compensation to you
for the bard work you do in the club
Connecticut Boys Given Purebred
Holstein Calves for Fine Work in
Behalf of Bureau.
Boy and girl club members secured
more than half the farm bureau mem
berships in a drive made In Fairfield
county, Connecticut.
The quota for the town of Fairfield
was 25 members. Raymond Banks, a
member of the boys’ and girls' club in
that town, secured 100 members.
In North Fairfield, whose quota was
12, l<eon Ryvolt, another club boy, ob
tained 50 membership*.
Because of the fine work which they
did In behalf of tbe farm bureau, each
boy was given a purebred Hereford
calf —and thus became the envy of all
the other boy and girl dub member*
In Fairfield county.
Predictions As to Probable Fu
ture Figures Not Given.
Not Possible to Give Quotations on
Car Lots Because No Basis to A*
certain Price—Most Interest
In Jobbing Trade.
The prices quoted in market reports,
supplied by bureau of markets. Unit
ed States department of agriculture,
represent actual sales, not prices asked
or quotations given, or predictions as
to probable future prices. Hence it
may be that on a rising market the
prices quoted may seem low when the
reports are received, and vice versa,
on a declining market the prices may
be high by the time the reports are
Quotations usually represent the
condition of the respective markets up
to approximately 9 a. m.. local time,
but reports are not issued until about
noon. Consequently it is Impossible
to Include fluctuations which may oc
cur between these hours, in the mar
ket reports.
In many important markets It would
be impossible to get car lot quota
tions because very few or no cars are
sold intact by the original car lot re
ceiver in that market to the local Job
bers, hence there would be no basis
for actual sales upon which to report
a car lot price. In most important
markets, however, there is a fairly de
fined jobbing trade which buys at the
prevailing jobbing price for the day.
Returns to a grower or shipper who
may have consigned a shipment to a
commission merchant are usually made
on a basis of the Jobbing price re
ceived from which, of course, freight,
commission, and other expenses are
subtracted. Hence shippers of con
signed products are usually more in
terested in the jobbing prices prevail
ing in a given market than in car lot
prices quotations.
Cellar of House Should Hold Winter's
Supply of Various Kinds of Fruit
and Vegetables.
Farm buildings usually offer ample
space for the storage of food products
raised on the farm. The cellar of the
should hold a winter’s supply
of potatoes, beets, carrots, onions, and
canned fruits and vegetables, as well
as such articles as a barrel of salt
pork, keg of kraut, and jar of eggs In
water glass. The thrifty farmer faces
the winter season with a well-stocked
cellar and with a store of dried fruits
and vegetables and possibly some Jars
of apple butter in his attic.
Specially constructed root cellars, or
“caves,” may be found on some farms.
Potatoes and other vegetables are
sometimes carried over the winter in
