There are other more health ful and delicious ways of prepar ing them, highly recommended, unless you happen to be a connois seur of the art of frying—which so few of us are. Even broiling and baking fish should be done with a knowledge of the kind of fish to be used, and the best way of broiling or baking it. Dry-meated fish, such as cod, haddock, pollack, and hake, are better adapted for boiling, steam ing, stewing or making into a cur ried dish, for they will keep their shape and not fall to pieces in the process of cooking. Oily-meated fish, such ag salmon, shad, mackerel, herring, lake trout and whitefish, are preferable for quick modes iof cooking, by the hot oven method. Don’t Overcook Fish It is well to remember that fish, in general, do not require the slow cooking used for many varieties of meat because its connective tissue is more tender than meat tissue, and overcooking extracts the juices and dries out the fish. Canners have done extensive re search into the proper methods of cooking fish, with the result that housewives order certain fish in cans because they realize that home-cooking cannot equal the perfection with which they are cooked. Canned salmon is a striking ex ample of this. More salmon is oold in cans than any other fish. i While it is possible to broil or bake salmon very nicely, few peo ple, other than famous hotel and restaurant chefs, have ever achieved near perfection in doing so. Canned salmon, on the other hand, comes to us always lovely in color, tender, juicy, its oils well blended into the salmon texture. Housewives, therefore, have given their time and thought to the many ways to serve salmon. The following salad and souffle provide a new and delightful addi tion to the ever-lengthening list o£ good salmon dishes. Nice for Parties Metropolitan Salmon Salad: Chill the contents of one 7-ounce can of salmon. Open and put the salmon in a small bowl lined with crisp lettuce, being careful not to break up the fish. Mix one-fourth cup mayonnaise with one table spoon thick sweet or sour cream, one teaspoon vinegar, one table spoon chopped celery, one table spoon chopped pimiento, one tea spoon capers and one teaspoon rel ish. Spread over the salmon. This serves three persons. Salmon Souffle: Turn the con tents of one 10>4-ounce can of strained cereal into a double boiler and heat. Then add the contents of one 1-pound can of salmon which has been flaked, and three tablespoons of butter. Add the beaten yolks of three eggs and salt to taste.- Fold in the three stiffly beaten egg whites and pour into a buttered baking dish. Bake in a moderate oven, 350 degrees, for thirty to thirty-five minutes. Serve at once. Serves eight persons.* THE MIDLAND JOURNAL, FRIDAY, MAY 29, 1988 Ranger Trophy &*fo * - '^fjfi Q./ry/s.

A POEM KNOCKING EVANGELIST JOHN MOSES BAKER Baltimore, Maryland At my door I hear a knocking, And wonder who Is there. The evening shadows lengthen, Darkness coming everywhere. jV I am a Poem, may I enter, And stay awhile with you? Scattering all the darkness, This is what I came to do. Let me tell you about the sunshine, And the rainbow in the sky. There’3 a brighter day that’s coming, And will be here by and by. i ; ■ Let me whisper love’s old story. About Christ, our Lord and King; He never will forsake you; God’s praises I would sing. 1 I I will bring back pleasant memories, So dear to one and all; Indeed life’s greatest treasure, The echo and the call. PESTIFEROUS SPECS By UNA CLINGAN RANDS Maria was born nearsighted, Her aunties and grandmas were too, So the heritage came directly And it could not be helped, they knew. At five she began kindergarten, Her teacher perceived her scowl And big round glasses were bought her, So she looked like a Wise little owl. At ten she fought with a schoolmate, A saucy and impudent boy. She walloped him round without mercy With a fierce and warlike joy. Till at last in the midst of the fracas He sent her glasses flying. Then Maria stopped on the instant And began to search for them, crying I "Oh where have my glasses gone to — Where can they possibly be? Don’t step on them, anyone, For without them I cannot see!” At twenty she gave her lover The momentous answer, "yes.” He caught her Impulsively to him A kiss on her lips to press. But she gently repulsed him, saying "Be careful, dear, how you go, If you wouldn't break my glasses Learn to kiss me nice and slow!” One cold winter day, some years later, She went to the station to meet Her husband, who'd been on a journey And whom she was anxious to greet. She ran up with words of welcome, But stepped back with a little scream. "Excuse me—l thought ’twas my husband My glasss are covered with steam!” At last when she got to be fifty Her troubles were just begun For she found, compared to "bifocals," Plain glasses were pleasant and fun. She wished she were Annie Laurie With a neck like a swan, she said, So to look through the upper lenses And see where on she tread. I hope as she nears the Pearly Gates Maria will be able to say "Why now, thank Heaven, without my specs I can see as plain as day,” o OUR GOLDEN WEDDING Rev. and Mrs. John Moses Baker Baltimore, Maryland Fifty years since we were wed, My sweetheart, she and I; Fifty happy, joyful years, With sunshine in the sky. Fifty, fifty, fifty years,— It does not seem so long. Serving the Master day by day, God filled our lives with song. A good wife, Heaven's gift to man; His truest, dearest friend. His golden chain of safety, True and faithful to the end. And so the years have come and gone, We are nearing Heaven's shore, The Homeland of the Blessed, Where partings are no more. Our eternal career together, In that land of light and love. The Home of the many mansions, In our Father’s house above. O CHRISTIAN SCIENCE SERVICES “Ancient and Modern Necromancy, Alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced” will be the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, May 31. The Golden Text will be from Jonah 2:8 —“They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.” Among the citations comprising the Lesson-Sermon will be the fol lowing from the Bible—Rev. 7:9 — “After this I beheld, and 10, a great multitude, which no man could num ber, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood be fore the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands The Lesson-Sermon also will In clude the following passage from the Christian Science textbook, “Science and Health with Key to the Scrip tures,” by Mary Baker Eddy, page 239—“ The wicked man is not the ruler of his upright neighbor.

For boys will be boys whether they are old-grads with feathers in their hats or stu dents in raccoon coats. It’s a sight worth seeing, also, between soup and dessert when peas parade to the table in gay and appetizing dishes. There’s still another parade which takes place daily in your grocery store —a parade unheralded by the grandiloquence of a drum major —but important nevertheless. From Midget to Giant And that’s the parade of canned peas of all sizes—-important to the housewife for her various needs. Did you know, for example, that there are available both wrinkled and smooth-skinned va rieties of peas, as well as peas packed by sizes which number from 1 to 6? Number 1 is the smallest size pea. They are more expensive because fewer of them are canned, because it casts more to can them —and not because their flavor is superior. There’s something for the woman who budgets to keep in mind! Some packers can a blend of sizes, 3, 4 and 6, called “run of the pod.” The number 1 size pea makes a nice garnish for steaks, chops, etc,, whereas the larger sizes are better for vegetable dishes. Besides kinds and sizes, there are also grades of peas—Fancy, Extra Standard and Standard. So next time you go shopping for peas—think twice before you speak. Get the sort of peas best adapted for your particular need.* , modern BREADS Half a loaf.

McAtee, of the Bureau of Biologi cal Survey. Both swallows and bats are sometimes attacked by insects that do in fact resemble the despised and detested bedbug, but these in sects are definite and distinct. One variety preys on swallows and anoth er variety on bats, but neither at tacks men nor has the same habits of life as the bedbug. Swallows as a group are good friends of farmers. They are insect hunters, and work from daylight to dark gathering food for themselves and their young. In the course of a season each swallow accounts for a quantity of insects that would other wise make trouble in fields, gardens, and orchards. Swallows are to be encouraged as working partners of the farmer and, as beneficial birds, are protected by State and Federal laws. ORPHANS’ COURT Bonds Approved—George R.
