COOKING WONDER-WORKING SYSTEM PERFECTED BY M.SOYER.WORLD'S GREATEST LIVING CHEF COOKING CHILDREN'S GOODIES. By Martha McCulloch Williams. Lives there a child with appetite ao dead that hla mouth never waters when the word “Goody” is mentioned? Goodies of all sorts are the especial gastronomic delight of all children, and let me add that goodies of all aorta can be made more digestible and more delicious by being cooked In paper bags. It was an acuta social observer who wrote: “Housekeepers Instinctively add grease and sweetening when cook ing for company.” The same rule ought to prevail In cooking for chil dren. Food cannot be too rich for young, thriving creatures, provided it Is properly proportioned. Perfect pound cake is a meal in itself, ginger bread as perfect, but little less satis fying, while as for tea cakes of the right sort, crisp, sugary, melting, an active healthy child may eat all it chooses of them, and be better for the eating. Make all these not merely good, but attractive to the eye. Make also sponge cake, raisin cake and many manners of fancy tartlets. Make them individual—ln that wf/1 lie the su preme charm. Begin by cutting a big bag length wise into strips two Inches wide. Grease each strip half an inch from one edge, and cut blunt notches Into the crease, three-quarters of an Inch apart. From another bag, split open, cut rounds or ovals, four to five Inches across. Fasten the notched strips to these with small clips, letting the notches stand outside and clipping the ends where they come together. Thus you have a flat-bottomed individual mould, to be filled, after buttering, with anything you like. Filled, the moulds are slid inside a large lightly greased bag. the bag set on a trivet, and after sealing, baked in the oven. Let the cakes cool In the moulds, then tear away the paper and frost them or decorate them with candy or nuts. Here Is Mammy's Pound Cake —and better never went in anybody's mouth. Take ten eggs, a pound of flour, sifted with two teaspoonfuls of cream tartar and one of soda, a pound of sifted sugar, three-quarters of a pound of best butter, a wineglass of brandy or sherry, a tablespoonful lemon extract. Cream the butter very light with half the sugar, add the other half to the yolks of the eggs after beating them foamy light, and then beat again. Put In the butter and sugar, mix well, add the liquor next, then half the flour, putting In a cupful at a time. Fold in next part of the egg whites, which should be beaten so stiff that they will stick to the inverted dish. Add the rest of the flour, then the last of the egg-white. Stir in the lemon ex tract last of all. Pour Into thickly buttered bags or very thin tin moulds thickly buttered. Seal the loaded bags and set on a trivet in the oven. Put moulds inside areased bags, seal and put on the griff shelf. Have the oven hot enough to turn white paper yellow In five minutes. If the paper scorches •it is too hot —cool it by setting a very shallow pan of cold water upon the floor jußt before putting in the cake. Take out the pan after a few minutes, of course, first turning down the gas flame, or pushing in the dampers to reduce heat. Cook at moderate heat until done through. It will take an hour to an hour and a half, accord ing to the thickness of the cakes. Midway the baking they should be shifted —those from the grid shelf set low on the broiler, those from the broiler put high, so that they will cook evenly. Make holes in the hag tops A Paper Bag Dinner By Nicolas Soyer, Chef of Brooks’ Club, London. Duckling with Turnips: Thoroughly butter a paper bag, place the duckling inside, cut a few slices of carrot and turnip into fancy shapes, cut up a few blanched spring onions, and add a bouquet garni. Pour in three ta blespoonfuls of tomato sauce und a wineglassful of Madeira. Season with ■alt and pepper according to taste. •Cook for forty-five to fifty-five min utes, according to the size of the bird. Chicken a la Reine: Take a fowl trussed as for boiling, and rub it well over with a split onion. Place It in a well-greased bag and add to it a gill of good stock. Add also a sprig of parsley, a bay leaf, a sprig of sweet herbs, and, if obtainable, two or three spring onions, all tied together. Take four ounces of well-cooked rice and add It to the fowl. Place the bag on the broiler, simmer very slow ly In a moderate oven until the fowl Is cooked, then dish up the fowl on a hot dish, remove the herbs and empty the rice into a fresh bag. Add to It a tablespoonful of stock, a gill of cream, a little grated lemon peel, a dust of nutmeg, and pepper and salt to taste. Mix thoroughly, add the well-beaten yolk of an egg. make hot again on the broiler and servo at once. Turkey and fillet of veal are both and test the cakes before taking them up by thrusting In a clean straw or thin knife blade. If the thing thrust in comes out with no stickiness cling ing to it, the cake is done. Hag cook ing prevents crusting over, and there by facilitates rising. It also saves from burning and avoids the risk of jarring by too much opening of the oven door. Baking powder can bo used in place of soda and cream of tartar, but to iny thinking the old way is the best. * Huisin cake is made almost the same as pound cake, but takes a little longer uud slower baking. 1C very household almost has Its own favorite gingerbread and tea-cake. Make them In your own way, but re member to make them festive. You can do this easily by cutting them out In all manner of fancy shapes be sides those already suggested, from frosting them In many colors—white, pink, green, yellow and brown, and sprinkling them before the frosting hardens, with tiny colored candles, or chopped nuts, or candled peel, or citron very finely shredded. Pound cake and raisin cake baked In paper bags can be cut In cubes, rounds, fingers, or any shape desired, frosted all over, and be more than ornamental. A centerpiece for a child's party can be built In the shape of a log cabin, using alternately long strips frosted white and other strips of chocolate brown. Or It may be white and pink, or all white, with a roof of frosting snow and candy-icicles hanging along the eaves. Vegetable coloring, which Is cheap and perfectly wholesome, can be bought from any first class grocer. NOURISHING BEEF DISHES. I wonder how many careful house mothers know stuffed roast beef? To make it get two flank steaks of gener ous site, sew them together with clean strong cotton and stuff bag thus formed in any way you like. Tie up the steaks. Butter them well over the outside. Slip into a well buttered paper bag plenty large enough to hold them, add a tablespoonful of water, cook in a hot oven three minutes, then turn off the heat more than half and cook for forty minutes more. Very heavy steaks may take longer, and light ones a shorter time. Sliced onions laid around the steak will flavor the meat and the gravy. This dish can be left standing in the bag quite a while after cooking. Heating it up makes it as good as ever. Take four pounds of round beef —the best cut. Rub over liberally with bub ter or clarified drippings, but do not salt, and put into a bag, which has been thickly buttered, along with half a can of tomatoes or three large fresh ones, peeled and chopped, one minced onion, one small red pepper, three cloves and six grains of alsplce. Score the beef lightly on top so aa to press the splceß Into It. Corer It with the tomatoes, onion, etc., and lay on them a lump of butter or dr'pptng rolled In salted flour. Add a tablespoonful of vinegar and water mixed. Seal bag tight, and cook very slowly for three hours. A gas Jet turned half down gives about the right heat. Take from the bag. pour out t±« gravy—ln a saucepan if you warn?? it thickened with browned flour; otherwise, in the boat. The meat will be very tender and delicious. Yorkshire pudding does not abso lutely demand cooking underneath a roast. To go with this round roast, you can make it thus. Beat two eggs separately very light, then add to them alternately a cup of sweet milk and two cups of flour, sifted with half a teaspoonful salt, and a teaspoonful baking powder. Mix smoothly, pour into a very well greased bag, seal, al lowing room for rising, lay flat on a wire mat and cook for twenty-five minutes in a fairly hot oven. Meat roll Is a good end for cold lean roast beef. Mince or grind it fine, sea son with salt, pepper, tiny bits of but ter, a little lemon Juice aud a pinch of powdered herbs. Roll out puff paste to less than a quarter Inch thickness. Make it in long strips. Spread the meat thinly upon them, roll up, pinch the ends together tight, put in a but tered bag with a little stock or water or left over gravy, also a small lump of butter, seal and cook till the pastry is brown—the time depending some what on the size and number of the rolls. (Copyright. 1911, by the Associate/ Literary Press.) excellent cooked after this recipe. Lima Beans: Take a quart of Lima beans, add two ounces of butter, four ounces of diced ham, a little sugar and salt, a teaspoonful of flour and sweet herbs to taste. Put in a greased bag with half a pint of water and cook for sixty minutes in a mod erate oven. Bplnach: Pick over and thorough ly wash two pounds of spinach, leave the vegetable as wet as you can, and put It In a bag. Add a pinch of sugar and a lltle salt. Seal the bag and cook for thirty-five minutes. Then stand the broiler bearing the bag over a large plate, and prick the bottom of the bag in such away as to allow all the water to run out. Fruit Salad: Tako four peeled and thinly sliced bananas, half a pound of well washed and dried Hamburg grapes, ditto strawberries, an apple, and two large oranges. Pinch each grape slightly. Hull tho strawber ries, peel and slice the apple and or anges very thinly. Mix all well to gether in a deep bowl. Pour over a small bottle of raspberry syrup and a tablespoonful of brandy. Mix welL Leave on ice till needed. (Copyright, 1911, by the Sturgis A Walton Company.) SAVE SOIL MOISTURE Land Should Be Disked as Early in Spring as Possible. lem« Farmers Do Not Appreciate Disk Harrow'* Many Usee—More Valu able Than Any Other Piece of Farm Machinery. Although the disk barrow is used on a largo number of the farms of Kan sas, many farmers do not use It wben It will do the moßt good. Tbe uses of the diskg harrow are many, and without doubt it Is one of the most valuable Implements on the farm. It may be used to conserve moisture, break up cloddy ground aft er plowing, prepare bard and dry soils for plowing, and destroy weeds after they have grown beyond the control of the smoothing barrow. The best way to preserve soil mois ture Is to disk the land as early in the spring aB the condition of the soli will permit. By doing this, a large share of the water from spring rains and melted snows is kept from evaporat ing, and by changing the texture of the top soil, to the depth the disk goes, the surface soil, where roots start to develop, will become warmer, drier,, better aerated, and better suited to lessen the rate of evaporation of the deeper soil water, and will hasten the development of weed seeds so they may be destroyed. The most effective way to use the disk in the spring work Is to lap the harrow half, and in doing this the furrow between the sets of disks will be entirely filled and the surface will be left level. When labor Is scarce and the farmer must save time, the double acting disk should be used. This Is a new Im plement recently placed on the market, and Is considered by the authorities of the Kansas Agricultural college to be built on a good principle. Although It has a heavier draft, there seems to be little doubt that It will come in to general use In the near future. Often, after plowing, a heavy rain oomes and compacts the soil, leaving the best conditions possible for rapid loss of this water by evaporation. This land should be gone over with a disk as soon as the ground will per mit Many fanners follow the binder with the disk; that is, they have thfe disk run behind the binder before the grain is shocked. This is a good prac tice, as the stubble ground is then in the best condition to catch any rain that might fall before plowing, and the soil is left in such a condition that plowing Is made much easier. Where small grains afe to folkw corn or potatoes the use of the disk harrow will often make ih*» plow un necessary. but either the disk must be run deep or a cutaway disk must be used. The chief objections to the cutaway disk are that it does not pul verize the soil so well, and it Is not so easy to sharpen as the full-bladed disk. Although It may run deeper, there is no appreciable difference in the draft of the two. PLANT MUST HAVE MOISTURE Underground Stems Rest During Dry Period and Awake and Send Up Leaves When Soil Is Moist. (By H. H. SHEPARD.) A part of the food which a plant needs for life and growth Is In the soli. It is the office, or function, of the plant's roots to get this food. But before the roots can take up plant food from the soil, that food must be dissolved in water. We all know that the soil In which plants grow must be wet or moist for the plants to thrive or do well in it. If the soil becomes very dry the plants stop growing, some of them die entirely, and others die down to the ground. Those plants which die only to the ground when the soil becomes very dry are provided with underground stems. These underground stems simply rest, or sleep, during the dry period, and awake aguin and send up new leaves and branches when the soil becomes moist. Dry Farm Methods. Some complaints have been made that the Ro-cailed dry farming meth ods do not succeed in very dry years and that hence these methods are wrong. Plants will not grow without some moisture and the season of 1911 was unusually severe in its bent and drought because it followed two other similar seasons immediately The preceding seasons were not so bad. but the rain came at such time of the year that there was comparatively little moisture In the soil during the growing periods. This, however, should not argue ngainst the dry farm ing methods, as they are simply good farming methods which are applica ble in a greater or less degree to every section of the United Stntes. Dry farming methods do produce good results in three seasons out of five and are more likely to produce re sults every year than any other moth od which has been devised. Remedy for Limberneck. Of ali the reputed home remedies for limberneck melted lard is perhaps the only one that can really be de pended on. Give it to the sick birds with a teaspoon. Rotation of Crops. Rotation of crops is one of the siin pie, practical methods of increasing the productivity of the farm and dis tributlng labor. GROW GRAIN-SORGHUM CROPS Great Plains Admirably Adapted te Growing Both Stock and Neces sary Feeding Material. In a farmers’ bulletin —No. 448 with the title •'Better Grain-Sorghum Crops.'' issued by tho Department of Agriculture, (,'arletou It. Ball ex presses the opinion that the Great Plains region, where the sorghums are grown extensively, gives promise of becoming n second great feeding belt, similar to tho corn belt. The area, he says, is admirably adapted to growing both steel; and the necessary feeding crops. These crops will bo corn in the regions of lower altitude and greater rainfall, and grain sorghums in the higher nnd drier parts. The grain sorghums, says the writer of the new bulletin, may be greatly Improved through the selection of bet ter varieties and the use of better methods The improvements will be chiefly In the direction of drouth re sistance; earllness; dwarf stature: productiveness, Including heads and freedom from suckers and branches, and increased machine harvesting. The improvement of the nature of the crop may be accomplished by seed selection. This, argues Mr. Ball, should bo the work of the boys on the farm "Complaint Is commonly made.” he says, "that the children are not in terested In the farm, and that many of them leave It ns soon as possible. In terest enn be nwakened by giving the boys and girls something definite to do In the way of improving the farm anflvits products. Once started, they should be encouraged to feel responsi ble for results. They should also re ceive a money return, however small, for the Improvement resulting from their efforts. "It Is not necessnry to await the formation of a neighborhood ‘corn club* in order to interest tho boy in selecting K*ter seed. Help him to make Relectlcfc s from the year’s crop. Let him projlure It for storing over whiter Set aAMe a field on which he can plant It the following spring. Plant alongside It some unselected seed. Assist him In comparing the two fields. Encourage him If striking results are not obtained the first year. Give him a fair share of the profit when profit results from his labors. The best result will be the Increase of interest nnd knowledge In the boy.” Mr Hall’s advice in thlH direction Is not Intended only for those who wish to improve their grain sorghum crops, hut to every farmer In the en tire country, whether he grows cotton, corn, wheat, rice, oats, potatoes or any other staple farm crop. POTASH IN MOHAVE DESERT Reported That Vast Deposits Have Been Found in California—Avail able In Commercial Form. Vast deposits of potash are ru mored to have been found in Cali fornia-enough to supply the United States probably for thirty years, so government scientists estimate. The potash was discovered in Searles’ lake, in the Mohave desert. In San Bernardino county. Cal. Field men of the geological survey and the bureau of soils estimate that the de posit may amount to 4.000,000 tons, but the authorities In Washington, from data in their possession, believe more than 10.000,000 tons of potash is available there. The great value of the find is that the product is in readily available commercial form. Most of the potash known to exist In many places In the United States is not so. Similar dried up lakc*s containing valuable deposits. It is believed by government officials, exist in the arid regions and will be discovered. The government bureaus for Eorae time had sought throughout the coun try for potash, felling certain a supply would be found. At present the United States nnd other nations are almost entirely dependent upon Germany for potash. If this report is true, it is of great importance to the whole industrial nnd agricultural world. It will cut the price of fertilizer In half nnd a big in crease in crops will follow its greater use by the farmers of America. Live Stock Notes It is Just ns necessnry to lit a collar to a horse ns it is to tit n shoe to the foot. Don’t work the medium-sized team all day In the field ami then drive to town that evening. Watch your horse's toot; if they nre tender don’t make him do more work than he can stand. Young horses should he worked not over a half day at a time at heavy work until hardened to it. Bathe the strained back tendons with cold water and give thorough rubbing with the hands o »**y day. Success in pork production is large ly affected by the attention given to the nealth and comfort of the brood sow. If you have never tried rape raise a small field this spring. It is very pop ular with hogs and does them a world of good. Old ewes should be rattened and disposed of before they lose any teeth. They are nil right, as a rule, up to six years or a little older. 205 TITANIC VICTIMS FOUND BODIES OF COL. ASTOR, ISIDORE STRAUS AND C. M. HAYS RECOVERED. MANY ARE IDENTIFIED NAMES OF NINETY-ONE PERSONS REPORTED BY CABLE SHIP MACKAY-BENNETT. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Now ork.—Tho bodies of Colonel John Jacob Aslor and Isidore Straus, the millionaire merchant of this city, who lost their lives in the Titanic dis aster, have 'been recovered and ure on board tho cable ship Mackay-Bennett. News of the recovery of the bodies was contained In a dispatch to the White Star Line Company. The body of C. M. Hays, president of the Grand Trunk Railway, bus also been recovered according to a wire less message from the cable ship Minia. The wireless dispatch which came to the company from the Mackny-Bcn nett gives the additional identification of forty-nine of the heretofore un known recovered dead on tho cable ship. Of the 205 dead on board the Mackay-Bennett the names of ninety one have been sent ashore by wire less. Washington.—Ablaze with light fnm her salon and cabins, the Tllauic dashed full speed to her destruction, according to Ernest Gill, a donkey en gine man on tho steamship Californi an, who testified before the Sen&'e committee investigating the disaster. He said Captain Stanley lx>rd of the Californian refused later to go to .he aid of the Titanic, the rockets from which could be plainly seen. This, Captain I,ord denied; but both lie aud his wireless operator acknowl edged having seen rockets. Their ship, they said, was fast in the ice. Gill submitted an affidavit to the committee, uud when sworn and put on the stand stuck to his charges against the captain of the Californian. He 6aid he was standing on the deck late Sunday night when he sight ed a great ship, sweeping along at top speed, about teu miles off. He did not know It was the Titanic, but made out readily that it was not a freighter or a small vessel because of the manner in which it was illuminated. Some time later he saw distress rock ets on tl»e horizon. He says the cap tain was apprised of these signals, but made no effort to get up steam ind go to the rescue. The Californian was drifting with the floe. So indignant did he become, said Gill, that he en deavored to recruit a committee of pro test from among the crew, but the ni*»it failed him. Captain I>ord entered a sweeping de nial of GUl’s accusations and read from tho Californian’s log to support ids contention. Cyral Evans, the Californian's wire less operator, however, told of having heard much talk among the crew, who criticised the captain's course. Gill, lie said, told him he expected to get SSOO for his story when the snip reached Boston. Evans told of having warned the ’ll - only a brief time before the great vessel crashed into the berg that the sea was crowded with ice. The Titanic’s operators, he said, at the time wore working with the wireless station at Cape Race, and they told him to “shut up and keep out.” Within n half hour the pride of the sea was crumpled up and sink ing. It developed that one reform which is certain to spring from the investi gation will he enforced in the wireless rooms of ships entering or leaving American ports. This concerns lack of authority over the operators’ pay, hours and freedom from responsibili ty as brought out by the testimony to date. Senhtor Smith, its chairman, announced that such legislation was inevitable. A sworn statement that the captain of the liner Californian refused to go to the aid of the Titanic, although only a few miles away, was filed with the committee by Ernst Gill, donkey engiuemun on the Californian. Gill said that the distress rockets were plainly visible from the deck of the Californian, and must have been visi ble to both the bridge and the look out. Seamen Desert Olympic. Southampton.—The White Star lin er Olympic, which had been held off ltyde, Isle of Wight, for several days l>y a strike of her firemen, has aban doned her trip to New York and re turned to port. This was made neces sary by the desertion of her seamen, when the liner attempted to replace the striking firemen with non-union men. One hundred and twenty-0110 passengers who were awaiting tho Olympic at Queenstown, have been transferred to the Baltic. Almost. “Avoid kissing If you would have a beautiful raoulh,” says Dr. Lillian Rus sell. We nre almost inclined to .»e --lievo the report that Lillian Isn't ns young as she used to be. Doing the Square Thing. “Young man, how do you expect to marry my daughter if you ure in debt?” “Why, sir, in my opinion, it’s t-ho only square thing to do. The longer 1 am engaged to her tho worse off 1 will be.” A Large Hairpin Holder. Mrs. Nngget—| watched your sister fixing her hair the other day, and I must say she’s not the most refined person in the world. Mr. Nugget—You don’t approve of her, eh? Mrs. Nngget—Well, you nover saw me with my mouth full of hairpins. Mr. Nagget—Of course not. What would you want with bo many hair pins? His Abusive Eyes. Aunt Caroline nnd tho partner of her wocu evidently found connubial bliss a misnomer, for tho sounds of war were often heard down in tho lit tle cabin In tho hollow. Finally the pair wero hailed Into court and the dusky lady entered n charge of abusive language against her spouse. The judge, who had known them both nil his life, endeavored to pour oil on the troubled waters. “What did he say to you, Caroline?” he asked, according to Llpplncott's. "Why, .lodge, I Jos’ can’t tell you all dat man do say to mo." "Does ho ever use hard language?” "Does you mean ctissln’? Yassuh, not wlf his motif, but he’s ulways givin’ me dem ciissory glances.” Not So Strange. “It’s strange that you never inet ihe Count Spaghetti before,” remarked the heiress. "Oh, not at all,” replied the disap pointed suitor. “But he tells me he has been In New York for quite a number of years.” “Yes, but I always shave myself, you know." An Occulist Cook. When a certain Mobile man slopped for luncheon at a small railway sta tion eating house in a Mississippi town, un old dnrkey shuffled up and and announced in n gruff voice the hill of fare consisted of ham, eggs, corn broad und coffee. After due deliberation the traveler stated that he would like some ham, eggs, cornhreud and coffee. Such a preteneious order for one person only appeared to stagger the aged survitor. But he soon recovered his equanimity and started toward the kitchen. Then he turned and came hack with the inquiry: "Boss, how will yo’ hab dem eggs, blind or looking at yer?" Advice. Med ill McCormick, president of the Illinois Progressive Republican league, was talking at a dinner in Chicago about certain old-fashioned campaign met hods. "Those methods,’’ said Mr. McCor mick, "seem as cumbersome to us as the methods of the moover seemed to the undertaker. "As an inebriate rested against a lamppost n mover passed him. Tho mover, an economical chap, was doing tho moving by hand, and he had on ids hack a huge grandfather's clock. "The inebriate starred vacantly at the sweating figure bent, under the weight of the great clock and then hiccoughed and hailed him. "‘Hey,' he said, ’hey,—hie—there!’ "The mover, stopped, turned slowly "Well, what is it?’ he asked. ” ’Take my advice, young fel,’ Raid the inebriate, ‘an’ buy ’shelf—hie —a watch.’ " Colorado, top of the world, known everywhere as the greatest mining state in tlie Union, is making amazing strides in Its agricultural development.
