THE, TASTY OMELET
PROPER METHODS OF COOKING AND 8ERVINQ. Mutt Be Placed on the Table as 8oon at Prepared 8ome Other Time ly Hints on the Cooking of Eggt. ' A lesson on the cooking of eggs is timely at this season, especially on the preparation of plain and fancy omelets. An omelet should be served the moment it is made;' so before starting to make it be sure that every thing else is ready. Stand the plat ter on the back of the range and have ready whatever garnishing you Intend to use. French Omelet. . Eggs, four; salt, one-half to three quarters teaspoonful; water, four ta Jlespoonfuls; pepper, a few grains; butter, one tablespoonful. I Sprinkle some salt into the omelet pan and rub for a moment with a piece of paper. . When this is done jthe omelet is less likely to stick. Place ,the butter in the pan. Dreak the eggs into a bowl, add salt, pepper and wa ter and beat slightly (1. e., until the whites and yolks are mingled). Take the pan with you to the range and have conveniently near a bowl and a palette knife. Melt the butter, but do not let It brown. ' Turn in the eggs, shake the pan gently, and as - (he eggs thicken at the edges pull back the cooked portions with the knife, tipping the., pan to allow the uncooked part to flow toward the edge. The omelet should slip on the pan when the latter is shaken with out sticking anywhere. When creamy all through roll it up, folding toward the side of the pan opposite the han dle. Turn the omelet on to the cen ter of the hot platter, garnish, and serve immediately. Fancy omelets may be prepared by spreading over the plain omelet before it is folded finely cut parsley, grated cheese, chopped ham of other cooked meat, or chopped vegetables. This is a good way to utilize leftovers, as almost any cooked food may be used. Have the filling hot when put into the omelet. Omelets are puffed up by the steam from the moisture in the eggs and the water added to them. If allowed to stand until this steam cools it will turn to water, soak into the ome let and make it heavy. ' . . To break an egg, hold it in the left hand and crack the shell by striking it sharply with a knife; then put your thumbs together at the crack and gently break the shell apart. To sep arate the yolk from the white, hold the egg upright while breaking the shell, so that the yolk will remain in one-half of the shell; pour the yolk from one piece of shell to the other several times, letting the white run over the edge into a bowl or plate. When using several eggs, break each singly into a cup or sau cer and examine it before adding to the rest. Eggs are added differently to dif ferent mixtures. We speak of beat ing them, stirring them and folding them. Yolks should be beaten in a bowl with a fork or an egg beater; whites are most easily beaten on a platter or deep dish with a fork or wire whisk. Whites are beaten stiff when a knife cut made in the mass does not close; dry, when the gloss is gone from them, and flaky bits fly off as you beat. Eggs are beaten slight ly to mix the white' and yolk; till light, to entangle air in fine bubbles in the albumen. To beat, carry the fork or whisk swiftly through the aterial, tilting the dish so that the 'material will be flopped over at each stroke. To stir, move the spoon steadily In widening circles. To fold, put the spoon in edgewise, lift the mixture and turn it over; repeat un til thoroughly mixed. Never stir eggs after beating or folding, because you are then breaking the air bubbles that you have entangled. , Washing of Clothes. In undertaking the washing of clothes at home they should be wrung out in cold water, then soaped well all over, rubbing between the hands and giving extra attention where it is re quired. Next put the garments into a tub, pour some tepid water over them, and add half a pint of liquid soap to every half a gallon of water.' Stir the clothes , about in this, rubbing inside and out between the hands, and put them into the boiler. Make somo good suds of boiling water and three parts of soap to one of soda or borax- Cover with cold water, and boll slowjy for a quarter of an hour or more, then rinse in cold water, and, if practicable, lay on the grass to bleach, sprinkling them first with soft, clean rain water. This treatment should make the things daz zllngly white and spotlessly clean. Rents In Table Linen. Tack a piece of stiff paper under the ragged edges of the rent, and darn in a network of fine stitches, backwards . and forwards, some distance beyond ''the edge of the tear. Care should be taken to use an embroidery cotton of a number corresponding with the quay ity of the cloth. Flax may be used for the thin places and where linen threads are broken. .Towels should be mended ... In the tame way. , ... . A Hint to Mutlclana. An excellent cleaner for guitars, vio lins, et,c, is made of one-third each of linseed oil, turpentine and water:.' These shaken together in a bottle form an emulsion or cream. Rub the' in atnimeftfJwlth a cloth damped in the cream, ftnn wipe It dry. and polish ,with a woblen cloth. 6REAT BOOM III JOLIET Public Improvements and New Indus tries Make a Big Demand for La bor, and Growth In Population Makes a Demand for Houses. Last fall the mills of Joliet demand ed 2,000 additional men. Business was greatly hampered by the lack of employes. The business men of Jol iet were uncertain how to get the required help, but by judicious adver tising succeeded in supplying the want. Now comes the demand for more places for the people to live in; more houses, more apartments. Not; withstanding the healthy growth of the city in the last few years there is a scarcity of houses. This is the house-builder's golden opportunity. The latest Industrial development is the determination of the United States Steel corporation to construct 400 coke ovens at Jollet so as to supply coke direct to the great steel plant and to utilize the gas from coke manufac ture in generating steam and for oth er uses. The steel plant employs over 3,000 men, and produces 5,000 tons of Bteel dally. The construction of the coke ovens will require hun dreds more workmen, and when they are in operation many . men must be employed to tend them. All these men must have homes. The work of track elevation in Jol iet is going rapidly forward. The new work of the Chicago sanitary dis trict in extending' the drainage canal through the city, widening and deep ening the channel, requires the outlay of large sums of money for labor. An other stupendous project is the re moval of the state penitentiary farther down the river. New factories are continually springing up in Joliet, while old ones are enlarging and ex tending their business. The labor outlook was never brighter. Yet in the midst of all this commer cial and industrial activity very lit tle attention has been given to the ex ploitation of real estate. No town of city has ever presented such an op portunity for the shrewd real estate man to enlarge his fortune. All around the city, and even within the city are places ripe for subdivision, which may be obtained at fairly mod erate prices, waiting the touch of the master hand. The homes are now lnadeguate for the 60,000 population, and many more are coming who will want new homes. It is a fact that under present con ditions there are over 4,000 more adult males than adult females in Joliet, who will sooner or later marry and demand homes. The prospect of rap id growth is therefore probably un equaled by any city of the United States. Conditions indicate that the real estate business will be the next to feel the impulse of these great in dustrial activities. If you are inter ested write to the Citizens' Alliance, Joliet, 111. Put Bismarck In Hole. When "Dull Run" Russell, who died a short time ago, was with the Ger man army in 1870 he reported a long Interview with the crown prince (Fred erick), some expressions in which gave umbrage to Bismarck. Bismarck sent for him, lost his temper and said: "I suppose you couldn't resist showing your Importance by reporting all that that 'dunderhead confided to you?" Russell replied: "Your excellency knows that I always respect confi dences; there is much that you have said to me yourself that I have not re ported." Bismarck: "Pouf! Anything I say lo you you may bawl from the top of St. Paul's." "I thank your excel lency," said Russell. "I shall use that permission to record your opinion of the crown prince."
