After studying the records made by the fleet at target prac tice at Magdalena Bay, Japan will hesitate before bringing her ships into line as targets. Keen observers recognize the reviving tendency of business in many ways. Railroad activity is more apparent than at any time since the panic. More cars are in operation now than there have been for months. Some rail road companies have placed or ders for more rolling stock; fac tories are resuming operations; farm operations with the open ing of spring are extending and calling for more muscle, both human and equine; building en terprises are quickening with the camming of warm weather. The million of the unemployed, about whom there is so much loose talk, are centered almost entirely in the great cities, where they presist in remaining in idleness or at starvation wages, although there is plenty of work waiting for them in better surroundings in the country. Here is a great waste of energy, of course, but the other eighty tour million will go ahead with their affairs with out appreciable loss of energy on account of idleness. "Jayhawkers of ’49” The DEATH VALLEY MAGA ZINE, which is publishing the life of Death Valley Scotty, will begin the story of the “Jayhaw kers of’49” in its May number. The “Jayhawkers” discovered and gave Death Valley its name. The story will be written by John B. Colton, one of the survivors, who is now 75 years of age. He was the youngest member of the party, being 16 years old at the time. April 5, 1849, the party, con sisting of 36 members, organized at Galesburg, Ills , under the name of “Jayhawkers,” and started to the gold fields of Cali fornia. They were on toot the last 52 days of the trip, having abanoned the wagons and butch ered their oxen for food. There are four survivors, one a woman aged 94 years, who car ried a child upon her back and kept in line while the strong men fell dead or went insane upon the trail. All of the story will be told for the first time, the humorous as well as the pathetic. Publishers have sought it for 50 years, but the survivors have now deemed it fit and proper to give it to the DEATH VALLEY MAGAZINE. No pioneer or lover of American history can aford to miss it. The subscription price of the magazine is $1 a year. Every issue contains stories and pic tures of the desert worth the price. The publishers are also giving five shares of stock in the Death Valley Quartz & Placer Mining Company as a premium. The stock is of the par value off 1 per share Rush orders or write for particulars. DEATH VALLEY PUB. CO.. Rhyolite, Nevada. COOKING WITH SOUR MILK. Vigorous Beating Necessary to Make It Mix Smoothly. Some cooks decry the use of sour milk cookery, because of the difficulty of mixing it smoothly with other in gredients, and a bit of sour curd is a decidedly unpleasant thing to meet in a corn cake or muffin. This is obviat ed by a few vigorous whirls of the egg beater in the bowl or pitcher which contains the sour milk. The curds and whey are thus smoothly mixed, and | the thick milk can be poured from one dish to anolher as easily as cream The proper proportion of soda is ! one-half of a level teaspoonful to each cupful of thick sour milk. As gas be gins to escape as soon as the acid meets the soda, the latter should not I be dissolved in the milk, hut. like bak ing powder should be sifted with the flour. Useful Table Heaters. Table heaters are useful in keeping food hot when it must come from a considerable distance. Many hotels use them, but they are also a great convenience in private houses that | have basement kitchens. The heaters are constructed with a nickel or iron frame, on top of which sets a nickel tray large enough to hold an ordinary 6ized meat plate or one or two smaller dishes. Underneath is an alcohol lamp. The heaters are low, of orna mental designs.
