Electric Stoves Are Not So
Expensive When Made at Home
Everybody knows of the Joys or
the electric stove, but only a few
are reputed to be expensive. This is
wHtten for the benefit of the great
majority, or that portion of it which
has enough mechanical ability to
follow a few simple directions anu
Two tin pie plates, a few screws
and turns of wire, etc., are all that
is necessary. The stove is set on a
block of wood one inch thirk, twelve
inches wide and fifteen Inches long.
It consists of a cylinder of galvanized
Iron Blightly smaller in diameter than
pie plate to the w ooderubase, and the
filling material—the aahesloa or min
eral wool—should he parked tightly
and filled in so as to fill tip the apace
between the sloping edge of the pan.
Then fireclay should bolsecured and
mixed with as little water as possi
ble and tltp pie plata filled with It
to a height of about one-quarter of
Hn Inch above the rim of thr plate.
The tops of the glass tubes should
serve as the gauge for the hetght of
German silver wire of 22-gauge re
sistance wire—the silver, is better—Is
used for the heating noil. There should
he about eighty feet of the wire. The
coll Is made by winding it around a
large wire nail. This will make a
lnng% spring-like affair. When the
winding is finished It should he laid
the pie plates, so that one of the
plates can rest on top of It, the cen
tral or sunken portion being below
the level of'the top.
The cylinder is made four inches
high and Is fastened securely to (he
wooden base. Two holes are bored
in the base and two lengths of glass
tubing one-eighth of an inch in diam
eter are inserted in these holes. The
cylinder Is then filled with mineral
wool or disks of asbestos, which is
packed around the glass tubes so that
they stick up through the cylinder
and are about half an inch higher.
The first of the pie plates is placed
in the cylinder with the bottom down.
There should be four holes In the bot
tom of the plates, one in the centre
through which one of the glass lubes
is permitted to protrude and one al
most at the edge of the depressed
On each side of the centre hole
there should be holes through which
long screws are run to attach the
In the soft fireclay in the form of n
spiral, with the centre connected to a
wire run through the glass tube In
the centra and the other end to n wire
run through the other glass tube.
The coll should be pressed Into the
soft clay until it is about half buried,
and care should be taken to see that
none of the yctlonB of wire in the coil
touch one another.
A switch socket for ping and a fuse
I box are placed on the section of the
wooden base which projects beyond
the stove. All .this having been fin
ished, the second pie plate is placed
over the first, holes being bored in
Ihe rims of each, so that they; can lie
All that is then necessary is to con
ned with the electric light circuit
through the socket on the baseboard
and the stove is ready for use. 1£

Purple and White Aster Salad for
Easter. Cut some rod and white cab
bage into shreds about 2*£ Inches
long, shape as an aster, the colors
alternating, on leaves of lettuce. Put
Into the Centre of each color a piece
of yolk of hard-hoiled egg cut round.
Serve with French dressing.
HEAVY SILK SPRING SUITS
Heavy silks are among the most
tempting offerings- in this sprA^i of
particularly alluring fabrics. The
heavy, lustrous failles, ottomans,
bengallnes, poplins and Bedford cords,
in . rich and beautiful colorings,
prbmlse a far greater variety than
was possible last spring, with its
monotonous black, blue or taupe satin
suit, repeated In wearying sameness.
Another novelty which It has been
predicted would appear at the Paris
openings is a silk covert cloth.
For still more dressy gowns the
brocaded silks will be use,d, especially
in combination with plain silks of the
same shade. Brocaded silk-wraps will
be found with plain pne-piece dresses.
A plain charnieuse costume, In a
shade between tan and yellow, has a
loose, medium-length coat of brocade.
Poplins on which a self-toned satin
brocade appears are used in combina
tion with plain poplins of the same
shade. Plain and moire poplin are

The making of sauce is another one
of the fine arts in cooking. Every
one who understands cooking Is
ready to concede the most difficult
things to cook are soups and sauces.
Why? Because It is only in
smoothness, delicacy of flavoring
and thorough cooking that ingredi
ents become the perfect sauce. The
French are noted for their sauces,
not a thick flour paste similar to
that used for hanging wuill paper
w'hich we sometimes sfe in this
There the first lesson a novice
learns is that all sauces containing
flour must come to the boiling point
and then simmer for from ten min
utes to a quarter of an hour in a
double boiler, stirring often. If this
fact Is remembered there Is no rea
son why our while sauce should not
be as good as tlie bechamel found so
delightful in France. This partic
ular cooking requires great care and
attention to the smallest detail.
On the other hand, when one be
comes familiar with the basis for all
sauces others are quickly and easily
made. Sauces are intended as ac
complishments to meat, fish, vege
tables or desserts. Even in the or
dinary slew there is the sauce or
gravy with it, which is either tasty
and liked by nil the family or per
fectly tasteless and insipid.

There Is no wrap that moans such

the hood Is really a valuable addi
tion for, at need, it can hr drawn
over the head, keeping it safe from
drafts and exposure. Drap d ele and
Bedford cord are good materials for
the making of these capes. Soft
poplins are pretty and ribbed silks
are used and the trimming can he
banding or embroidery or simple
sen Hoped edges, or almost anything
that the mother may like. With the,
coming of warmer weather Henrietta
cloth Will probably be better than
the drap d'ete, for it gives a similar
surface and is not so heavy. The
new Bedford cords are wonderfully
beautiful and altogether the rape is
a very satisfactory one. It can he
made of very simple material for
every day needs or it can he made
of handsome silk with lace trimming
