Rock Island housewives of the past,

complish this same feat.

Did you ever hear of doughnuts
"a-la-Siple?" There is a special kind
cf doughnut and cruller which is be
coming better known throughout the
cities where Mrs. Siple has given her
lecture-demonstrations. Mr6. Siple has
sort of specialized upon the lovely
nut of the frying pan and by such
specialization has been able to give
the world a very simple recipe for
most delicious doughnuts wh,'chh, mir

very much resents the term "6inker"
being applied, to her sort of doughnuts.

Despite the fact that Mrs. Siple's
lecture-demonstration each day is
drawing a big and enthusiastic crowd,
Mrs. Siple says for me to state that
"the more the, merrier" as far as she
is concerned, and that she would see
that comfortable seating was provid

crowd which packed the theatre. The
meeting tomorrow afternoon will be
full of interest and helpful ideas to
every woman who ever has, or wHl,
or does have anything' to do with
cooking. " The special feature of to

I feel that much is missed by not en

each season as it comes.
But the food especially must be reg

tho winter, for instance, men, boys and

working for ten hours daily in a city

stuffy car and sleeping in tightly
