it is one of the necessities which
should be in all houses. It will stand
washing better than any sticking plas
ter which we have ever seen. But
it will come off, yet it is so easily
renewed that it is but little trouble.
Simply turn up the bottle till the
end of the cork is coated with the
collodion then draw it from the bottle
and apply where needed, repeat until
the coat is as thick as desired. Keep
the bottle closely corked when not in
use, as it evaporates very rapidly if
exposed to the air. We would also
warn you not to be deceived by an
advertisement which has been publish
ed in many periodicals, setting forth
the wonderful value of something
which is called new skin, and is said
to be a marvelous cure for wounds,
burns, etc. We sent for a sample
bottle, it was collodion, all right so
far as collodion is good, but can be
bought for much less-than half the
price at a drug store.
Washing Blankets.
A housewife whose blankets always
retain their softness without shrink
ing gives the secret. Make the suds
in a tub with any good white soap,
having the water hot. Dissolve in it
a tablespoonful of borax. Run threads
around soiled spots on the blanket so
that they may be found after they
are wet. Rinse the blankets up and
down vigorously, rubbing only the
marked spots. Never rub soap di
rectly on them. Prepare another hot
suds with borax and put the blankets
in it. Rinse up and down for several
minutes, then rinse in clear hot wa
ter softened with borax. Rinse in as
many hot waters as necessary, then
run blankets through a wringer .

Care-of Flatirons.
Many people have been annoyed at
finding their irons quite rusty after
they have been put away a few days.
The way to prevent this happening is,
before you put them away, to rub a
little warm grease over them and then
wrap them up in brown paper. When
you take them out to use dip them
into hot water that has had a small
piece of soda dissolved in it, rub dry,
and then put them to heat in the usual
way. When they are ready to be used
on the ironing board have a piece of
brown paper with a little powdered
bath brick on it and rub the surface
of your iron with this. It seems rath
er a lengthy process, but it really does
not take long to do, and housewives
will be rewarded for the trouble they
have taken by finding the irons de
lightfully smooth and easy to use, and
when they are like this the ironing
can be done twice as quickly.
Brass on Bedsteads.
Brass on bedsteads should never
be cleaned with the ordinary brass
polishes, as they destroy the coat of
lacquer that is put on the prevent the
brass from tarnishing. The bright
parts should be rubbed every day with
a soft cloth, and if they begin to look
discolored rub with a cloth slightly
moistened with sweet oil, and after
wards polish with a soft cloth and
chamois leather.
Recipes.
Veal Loaf.—Three pounds of veal
and a quarter of a pound of salt pork,
chopped fine; two teaspoonfuls of
salt, half a teaspoonful of pepper, two
teaspoonfuls of sage, two eggs, and
one cupful of powdered crackers. Mix
THE FLORIDA AGRICULTURIST L
all these ingredients well together and
pack in a bread pan. Bake one hour.
Serve cold, cut in thin slices.
Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce.—Put
a quarter of a pound of spaghetti into
boiling water. Boil rapidly for thirty
minutes. Drain, cover with a pint
of strained stewed tomatoes, add a
teaspoonful of salt, cover and cook
for half an hour. Add a quarter of a
pound of cheese, grated, a tablespoon
ful of butter, heat until the cheese is
melted and serve.
Apple Float. —Peel six big apples
and slice them. Put them in a sauce
pan with just enough water to cover
them and cook until tender. Then put
them through a colander and add the
grated rind and juice of a half a
lemon, sweeten to taste, and stir in
a trace of nutmeg. Fold in the stiffly
beaten whites of four eggs, and put
the dish on ice. Serve with whipped
or plain cream.
Prune Whip.—Wash one-quarter of
a pound of prunes and soak over
night. Cook them the next morning
in the water in which they were soak
ed. Remove the stones and mash up
the pulp. Add a quarter of a cupful
of sugar and cook five minutes. Beat
the whites of two eggs to a stiff froth,
add them to the prune juice, stirring
in lightly with a fork. Pile on a but
tered shallow dish, and bake twenty
minutes in a slow oven. Serve cold,
with a custard made from the yolks
of the eggs.
Meat Gems. —To one cupful of cold
chopped meat make a sauce of two
tablespoonfuls of butter, two of corn
starch and one cupful of milk; mix
this with the meat and add the well
beaten yolks of two eggs. Season
with salt and pepper. At the last stir
lightly in the beaten whites of the
eggs. Bake twenty minutes in a hot
buttered gem pan.
Stuffed Beets. —Wash half a cupful
of rice and sprinkle it in a kettle of
boiling water. Boil rapidly for fifteen
minutes and drain. Chop a cupful
of pecan nuts, mix them with the rice,
add a teaspoonful of salt and a little
pepper. Scoop the centres from cook
ed beets; fill the space with the rice
mixture, stand them in a baking-pan
and bake for twenty minutes. Chop
the beet taken from the centre very
fine, add it to a cream sauce, and pour
around the beets after they are dished.
Stuffed Potatoes.—Choose half a
dozen round potatoes of equal size,
wash them perfectly, clean and bake
in the oven until sufficiently cooked.
Cut each one in two, scoop out the in
terior carefully so as not to break
the skin; beat it very smooth 'and
light with salt and pepper and one
ounce of butter, also the yolk of an
egg to every three potatoes; so if
you take six potatoes use the yolks
of two eggs. If you have any cold
meat on hand (cold veal, pork or lamb
is the best) mince it finely and season.
Into the empty potato shells, put first
a spoonful of the prepared potato,
then a spoonful of the minced meat
and then pile up with the potato, put
a tiny bit of butter on top. Place in
the oven and brown. Serve imme
diately with parsley on top.
Don’t neglect drinking water and
plenty of it. Many a woman suffers
from an ugly, blotched complexion
who could remedy the trouble by
drinking plenty of water and eating
fresh fruit.
