Judge Lindsey Pays His Fine Well, it's all over at last, after six years of suspense—Judge Ben B. Lindsey of the Denver juvenile court has paid $581.70, the fine and costs, and Is not going to jail for contempt of court Anyway, the school fund gets the money. The case began In 1915 when Judge Lindsey was found guilty of contempt of court by Judge John A. Perry In having refused to divulge confidential Information he had re ceived from a youth whose mother charged with murder. Judge Lindsey, "convinced against his will la of the some opinion still" and Is sued a statement as usual In which he says. In part: "I am sure that I have demon strated that In actual practice the courts are wrong In compelling a be trayal, of confidence, and It Is decid edly in the interests of justice that such confidences should be respected. It Is s strange rale that this should be denied In a tribunal where the value of such a confidence to the stnte and to justice Is perhaps the greatest. Sc having fought the matter out to the highest court of the country and availed myself of every remedy that seemed justifiable and proper, and having lost on a technicality, In a divided coart of one majority against me.

RARELY COOKED PERFECTLY Except for 8poelal Reasons Simploat Mothoda Ara Beat In Cooking—It Takaa Much Patianca and Watar to Waah Cloan. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) One of the first vegetables In the garden or on the market in the early spring Is that reliable stand-by— spinach. The shoots should be cut reg ularly; If not, the old shoots become tough and rank flavored. Spinach furnishes little body energy, but It is exceptionally rich In Iron and is one of the Important vitamines, and so is a valuable food, say specialists In the United States Department of Agri culture. It contains little starch and only a suggestion of sugar, and Is therefore one of the vegetables that physicians Include in the bill of fare of many Invalids who require a diet without these carbohydrates. Cheap in First Cost. Like most other vegetables, It Is rarely cooked to perfection, yet It Is not difficult to prepare. Except for special reasons, the simplest methods ore the best for this vegetable. No matter how cheap the raw spinach may be, it Is always expensive in one thing—labor. It takes a good deal of time, water, and patience to wash It dean. To clean the spinach cut off the roots s break the leaves apart and drop them Into a lurge pun of water, rinse them well, and lift them Into a second pan of wuter. Do not pour the water off over the splnnch or the grit that has been washed off will get back on the leaves. Continue washing In clean waters until there is not a trace of sand on the bottom of the pan. If the spinach is at all wilted, let It stand In cold wuter until It becomes fresh and crisp. Drain from this water and blanch os follows: For half a peck of spinach put In a large saucepan 3 qharts of boiling water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Put the drained spinach in the boiling water and let It boll 10 minutes, count ing from the -time It begins to boll. When It begins to boll, <)raw the cover of the saucepan a little to one side to allow the steam to escape. At the end of 10 minutes pour the spinach Into a colapder, and when the ho* water has passed off pour cold water over it. Let It drain well and mince coarse or fine, as Is suitable for the manner In which It is to be served. One peck of spinach will make about 1% pints when blanched and minced. 8pinach With Egg. H peck spinach. 8 tablespoons butter or other fat M teaspoon pepper. 2 eggs. 8 teaspoons salt. Wash and blanch the spinach, using two teaspoons of the salt In the water In which the vegetable Is boiled. Drain the blanched spinach and chop rather fine, return It to the saucepan, Spinach It an Especially Valuable Vegetable. and add the salt, pepper, and butter or other fat. Place on the Are and cook ten minutes. Heap In a mound on a hot dish and garnish with the hard boiled eggs, cut In slices. Bpinach Cooked Without Water. Fresh spinach when washed holds enough water for cooking. Put the spinach into a covered saucepan and cook for ten minutes. Press down and turn the spinach over several times during the cooking. At the end of ten minutes turn the spinach into a chop ping bowl, and mince rather fine. Re turn to the saucepan and add the sea sonings, allowing for half a peck of spinach two generous tablespoons of butter or other fat and a teaspoon of salt. Simmer for ten minutes; or If very tender, five minutes will be suffi cient. Spinach cooked In this manner will retain all Its salts and the flavor will be stronger than when blanched (boiled in water). In young, tender spinach this Is not objectlouable, but when the overgrown vegetable is cooked in its owq moisture the flavor Is strong and somSwhat acrid, ftnlnaoh With Cream. CANNING ASPARAGUS FOR ANY EMERGENCY It Is Excellent Served Either Plain or as Salad. Of Orut Importance That Vagatabla ■a Freeh and Tender—Watch Cara fully far Any Laaka and Stara In a Dry Place. (Prepared by the United Btatee Depart inant of Agriculture.) A housekeeper who has. plenty of asparagus canned and on her shelves feels prepared for* any emergency. It Is excellent served either plain or as a salad. The United States Department of Agriculture gives the following dlrec* tlons for canning tills vegetable: It Is of the greatest Importance that asparagus for canning be fresh and tender. Cut into right lengths for the Bunch of Asparagus. Jars, scrape off the tough outer skin and scales, and tie in bundles. Blanch by Immersing first the lower ends in boiling water for two minutes, then the entire stem for two minutes longer. Plunge, into cold water, drain and pack curefully with the tips up. Fill pint jars with brine (4% ounces of salt to one gallon of sater) and process 60 minutes in steam-pressure cooker un der five pounds pressure. If a hot water is used for processing, boil the Jars intermittently one hour on each of three consecutive days. (In cold climates, with young and tender asparagus, boiling continuously for two hours will probably be sufficient.) Seal the Jars and remove from can ner, invert while cooling, and watch carefully for leaks. When cool store In a dark, dry, cool place. COVER CEREALS AND FLOURS If Kept.Jn Closed Container* They Be come Musty and if Left Open Bug* Do Injury. Cereal supplies and flour should now be purchased in very small quantities.
