LAW’S AIDES FEEL OWNJFEHIORin Lloyd Georgo and Birkenhead Made Great Play With Attainments of Prime Minister's Statesmen London.—There has been a slight lull in “big gun” election oratory. The new prime minister, Mr. Bonar Law, moved into his official residence in Downing street and will hold his first cabinet meeting soon. He is still ex periencing difficulty In completing his ministry. Mr. Lloyd Georgo and Lord Birken head, in their recent speeches at Glas gow, made great play with the medi ocre political capacity and attainments of the statesmen the prime ministf’* had gathered around him as compared with those who remained loyal to Lloyd George, and those personal at tacks on the new administration have caused considerable angry feeling on the part of the prime minister’s lieu tenants, the more especially as in their election campaign they are feeling their inferiority in oratory in compari son with their opponents. Moreover, Stanley Baldwin, who is Mr. Bonar Law's chief lieutenant, is generally thought to have been some what tactless from an electioneering standpoint, when he declared that there would be no immediate reduction in taxation.

Vick Roy f APPETIZING USES FOR VARIOUS CUTS OF PORK TO ADD VARIETY ■ ■ - ■■ ~ " ■- Girl Club Mtmbera Witnessing Demonstration In Cutting Up Port at the Beltsville Government Farm. (Prepared by the Untied States Department of Agriculture.) Pork is one of the most widely used meats. In China, for example, pork Is the staple flesh food; In this country It constitutes a large part of the meat used In the farming districts. Natu rally where hogs are slaughtered on the farm use Is made of all cuts of the pork, but persohs who purchase meat from the markets are likely to limit their selection to chops, roasts, ham and bacon. The following suggestions made by the United States Department of Ag riculture may be of help both to those who buy their pork at the market and to the farmers who may be glad to secure greater variety In the use of their home product. There Is no marked difference In the tenderness of the different cuts of pork, but the meat from the fore quarter Is somewhat coarser grained than that of the loin and hams, and the proportion of fat to lean Is greater. Shoulders well-trimmed and smoked are satisfactory to use in place of ham. If offered at a price low enough to offset the larger amount of hone which they contain. The thick end of the shoulder Is known as the Bos ton butt. Shoulders are sometimes boned, rolled and smoked. Since there Is practically no waste to this cut, the real cost can readily be estimated. Smoked hams and shoulders are com monly boiled, but both are excellent when baked, fried or broiled. No matter what the method of prep aration, all pork should be thoroughly cooked. Baked Smoked Ham or Shoulder. Wash the ham or shoulder well, cover with cold water and simmer for about three hours for medium-sized ham, about 15 minutes per pound when followed by baking. Allow It to cool In the broth or remove at once, trim off the brown crust and remove the skin. Smear the surface well with brown sugar, stick It liberally with cloves, using perhaps one to each square Inch. Bake for two hours In a covered roaster. Remove cover and brown the fat side well. Serve either hot or cold. If slices for broiling have been cut from the center of a ham, the remain ing hock and butt ends may be placed together, tied securely and treated as a whole ham. Chops, Steaks and Roasts. For broiling and frying, chops and steaks are cut from the ribs, the loin, or from fresh hams If preferred, while larger portions of these cuts are used SQUASH PIE FILLING NEEDS LONG COOKING Rich Flavor Developed If on Stove for Four Hours. Not Economical to Run Gas Stove for Extra Two Houre—Tested Recipe by Department of Agricul ture Is Given. (Prepared by the United State* Department of Agriculture.) Throughout the fall months squash and pumpkin pie may well appear in the bill of fare. If a coal or wood fire Is kept up In the kitchen for other purposes. It is well to cook the squash for a long time to develop the flavor, but It is not economical and may not be advisable to run a gas stove for an extra two hours for the sake of flavor alone. The United States Department of Agriculture has found that when the squash used for filling Is cooked four hours It develops a richer flavor than when it Is cooked only two hours. The recipe below can be used for either squash or pumpkin pie. It has been thoroughly tested in the depart ment’s experimental kitchen. * Squash Pie. cupfuls squash, 1 teaspoonful salt thoroughly cooked H teaspoonful all (canned squash spice may be used). % teaspoonful mgf’e 1 cupful milk 2 sgffs cupful sugar 1 tablespoonful hut -1 teaspoonful cln- ter namon Put all the Ingredients except the eggs and bntter In the double boiler and bring to the scalding point.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1922. as roasts. On the farm the backbone and spareribs are cut with large al lowances of tender meat attached, quite different from the closely trimmed bones offered for sale under these names. In some markets, espe cially at the holiday season, the car casses of very young pigs are offered for sale. These are to be roasted whole. French fried onions are excellent with pork chops. They are made by slicing onions across the grain, dust ing them lightly with flour, then fry ing the rings like Saratoga chips In deep fat until they are golden brown. Apple sauce or stewed dried apples are also good accompaniments for pork. Soup. There Is no reason why the liquor from fresh boiled pork should not be good stock for soup if carefully freed from fat. A few drops of lemon Juice Improves the flavor. Sausage. Pork sausage, a favorite dish with many people. Is sometimes hard to ob tain on the market, the usual offer ings being made of mixed pork and beef. Small quantities of sausage may be made at home with very little trouble. Pork Sausage. 1 pounds of pork A few grain* of (one-third fat). cayenne pepper. 1 teaspoonful black % teaspoonful of pepper. fine aa go or 2 teaspoonfula salt thyme. Cut the meat into small pieces and add the seasonings. Mix well and put through the meat grinder, using the fine blade. Make Into small cakes and fry until well done and browned. Sausage Pie and Turnovers. Fry cakes of sausage until brown and about half done. Arrange In a baking dish, add the drippings with enough hot water to form a good gravy. Give this last a little extra seasoning. Cover with a crust made as for biscuit and bake for one-half hour. Each sausage cake may be laid on a round of pastry which Is then doubled over It to make a “turnover” and baked. Sausage turnovers are ex cellent cold for lunches, suppers and picnics. Scalloped Pork. Cut cold cooked pork Into small pieces, removing any excess fat, and place in a baking dish. Add a cream gravy and cover with a thick layer of mashed potatoes 'or boiled hominy. Heat thoroughly In the oven, browning the top. SPONGE AND IRON GARKXENTS Success in Pressing Lies in Having Material Evenly Dampened to Avoid Water Rings. To sponge and press cottons, linens, and silks, Iron through a piece of thin cotton material wrung out of clear water, says the United States Depart ment of Agriculture. Another way Is to sponge the material with even strokes and then Iron dry. Heavy or colored goods should be sponged and ironed on the wrong side. Sponging with thin starch or gum arable water will make some fabrics seem almost new. Success In pressing Iles In having the garment evenly dampened so that no water rings are formed or an un even stiffness produced.
