NEW USE FOR MOLASSES
The department of agriculture re

lasses and syrups in the family cook
ing, ilt seems there is in molasses
an unworked mine of heat and ener
gy that it would be well for suffer
ers from high food prices to utilize.
In a 10 cent can of good molasses
there is supposed to be eight ancT
three-quarter 'times as much heat and j
energy as in a 15 cents worth of but-1
ter, two and three-fourths as much I
as in bacon costing the same price !
10 and one-thirds times as much as j
in 10 cents worth of eggs, five 'times;
as much as in 10 cents worth of I
ham, and nearly twice as much as in
an equivalent amount of cereal and:
One would barely care to- eat aj
breakfast in which molasses had been!
substituted for cereal, cream, bacon i
and eggs. But the 'thrifty house-;
wife will wisely take the suggestion!
of the department of agriculture and;
use molasses in many ways to save !
on food bills.
