For the many who prefer cooked to raw fruits the various delicious ways known to the Italians may be received with pleasure. Different from the usual apple sauce la this method of cooking. Pare and quarter appleB of any size, drop into a saucepan, for every six apples add the juice of one orange, and a quarter of the peel sliced with the pulp. If not sufficient juice a little water may be added and granulated sugar to taste. Cook only until the apples are tender, not long enough for them to lose form. Pears cooked the same way are very good. Apricots, fresh or dried, are cooked in the same way. If dried soak for eight or ten hoi*rs. Place in a baking pan, cover with sugar and marsala wine, or a good quality of sherry. Place in the oven, cook until soft and Juicy, basting occasionally. Plums my11! be found equally good cooked as ap ricots. Prunes, always seasonable, are won derfully delicious when prepared in the true Italian way. Soak over night prunes of any size in sufficient red wine to cover the fruit and for each pound of fruit add half a cup of granulated sugar. Cook until tender and add more wine if much juice is desired. Just what the wine does to the flavor of the prunes it is difficult to say, but certainly they are well worth trying. Dried cherries, as well as the fresh ones, are good cooked this way, and blackberries stewed with claret instead of water will prove a new delicacy. Peaches cooked with brandy are of course not a novelty, but peaches cooked with raspberry syrup instead of sugar and the usual brandy will be something to remember. CHINTZ NEEDS GREAT CARE Precautions Must Be Taken When There Is Need of Washing This Delicate Fabric. The housewife whose home is filled with dainty chintz draperies and cov ers is often troubled by the fact that each time her chintz is washed its lovely designs grow a bit lighter, un til they are so faint as to be almost in distinguishable. Of course the fading is all due to the way the chintzes are laundered, and a little more care in that depart ment will keep the bright colors prac tically the same as new. The chintz should be soaked in cold water made briny with plenty of salt and vinegar. When the brine has thor oughly penetrated all through the goods a little hot water should be ruq into the tub; not enough to make the tub full of warm water, just enough to make it tepid. The washing should not be done with a very strong acid soap—in fact, a soft soap is prefer able. When the chintz is hung up to dry care should be taken that it is not put up in the direct sunshine, but is hung in the shade. When not quite dry it should be taken down and ironed from the wrong side. The great thing in preserving the colors of chintz is not to let heat come in contact with the right side of the goods. Of course the irons will have to be fairly hot in order that the chintz may look fresh and without wrinkles, but this heat should be applied to the wrong side of the goods. How to Clean Suede. If you are wearing a pair of fash ionable shoes it goes without saying that they have some suede somewhere in their mukeup. They have suede tops or they have suede trimmings, or some place there is some suede. AIbo, as a matter of fact, the suede becomes soiled rather easily. Now, there are several sorts of cleaners sold for suede and all of them are fatrly good. But a woman who has had much experience with cleaning suede says that the best way to clean it is to rub it with a fine emery cloth. This literally rubs off the dirt and leaves the suede smooth and clean. Old-Fashioned Baked Indian Pudding. This is the ideal dessert to follow roast pork or pork and beans. If made right, this pudding when taken from the oven will be of quivering, Jelly like consistency, and if any la left over It can, bp steamed for next day. Bring a quart of fresh milk to a boll, then sprinkle In a cupful and a quar ter of fine granulated meal, holding it high with the left hand and stirring with the right. When this is thick ened and cooled a little, three-quarters of a cupful of molasses, a half tea spoonful of salt nnd two teaspoonfuls of ginger are stirred in and the mix ture beaten until smooth. A stone pudding dish is now to be well buttered and the batter poured in, and at the last moment a quart of cold milk added. Bake in a very slow oven four or five hours and serve with hard sauce or cream. Aunt Susan'* Cake. One and one-half cupfuls sugar, half cupful butter, one egg. one teaspoon ful cinnamon, one cupful aour milk, one teaapoonful soda dissolved In milk, one cupful chopped raisins, two heaping cupfula flour. 8trawbflrry Salad. Choose the heart leaves of a head of lettuce, heap a few strawberries in each and dtist them lightly with pow• dered augar. Put a teasponful of may onnaise on each portion and serve cut. lemons with them. Delicious. Casco Bay House POPULAR LONG ISLAND HOTEL IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

SWORDFISH FLEET LANDED MANY THOUSAND POUNDS AT BOSTON LAST WEEK. Several Bailey Islanders Home Over the Holiday. The schooners Edmund F. Black of Bailey Island, Albert Willard of Ixrng Island and Albert Black and Topsail Girl of Portland reached Boston last week with from 6,000 to 12,000 pounds each of the season's first catch of swerdfish, which brought eleven to twenty cents per pound. The Ed mund F. Black, which was first to sail, left Bailey Island June 9 and reached the southern end of George's Bank June 11. A fish was taken the first day, but for the next four days the vessel was in a thick fog, running eastward to try for clear weather. This failing she finally returned to the banks, finding the rest of the fleet on the grounds and with half a fare of fish. The latter schooners had been lucky in getting fair weather during the day, without which of course the fish cannot be seen. The Edmund F. Black reached Bos ton June 29 with, forty-one fish, weighing about 205 lbs. each. The price that day had fallen to $11.30 per hundred and the crew shared $40 each. The Albert Willard, Albert Black and Topsail Girl which did not sail until about the 19th of the month, were earlier in the market at Boston and shared $172, $iox and $110 each man respectively, their flsh selling from 16 to 20 cents a pound. The schooner Lochinvar of South Harps well was still at the Banks when th£ others left, but she had twenty-five flsh iced then. Captain Frank Dough ty, George S. Crafts, Charles and Ev .erett Dexter, Fred I^ewis, Fred Rstes and Simeon Doughty of the Black came home to Bailey Island during the storm of last week, returning Monday to their vessel at Boston.
