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.

Lima Beans: Take a quart of Lima
beans, add two ounces of butter, four
ounces of diced ham, a little sugar

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.

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.

His Abusive Eyes.
Aunt Caroline nnd tho partner of

pair wero hailed Into court and the
dusky lady entered n charge of abusive

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

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

the methods of the moover seemed to
the undertaker.
"As an inebriate rested against a

"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
