PRINCIPLE USED CENTURIES AGO IN OUT OF DOOR COOK ING BY PIONEERS. IS IMPROVING CONSTANTLY How the Device Can Be Most Sue cessfully used by Modern House wife and What It Is Worth to Her in Time and Rest. (By Margaret B. Foulks.) There is no modern invention that has caused so much interest all over the land as the flreless cooker, and perhaps none that has provoked as much skepticism and suspicion. Many people no more than glance at the name a "Fireless Cooker" than they are ready to say "impossible, there must be fire to cook." Some drop the subject there, but others do not, and the flreless cooker is fast becoming one of the necessities in every well equipped kitchen, both in the city and country. This principle was used centuries ago in the out of door cooking when thee people dug holes in the ground, lined them with rocks, made a hot fire in them and when the fuel was burned up, placed their food In among the Btones, cov ering It with stones and earth to re tain the heat until the food was done. Among the ruins of Pompeii there were found old stone ovens, and it is said that the fire was built inside of these and when the stones were thoroughly hot it was raked out and the food put in to bake. . ' A number of years ago people be gn trying "cooking boxes" made in various ways to retain the heat. The German housewife found them very successful. These were usually made by lining the boxes with hay, setting in a covered vessel of boiling food and covering with hay and the lid of . the box. In 1905 our own govern ment, conducted experiments tl6ng this line and proved that it was a practical thing. Since that time the flreless cooker has been lmprovd con stantly until now we have them that will not only boil food but will bake and roast as beautifully as any range, , and without the . watchljig, basting, etc. , To the city woman the fireless cooker means chiefly a saving, of gas or electricity, but to the woman in the town and country home, this cooker means not only a saving of fuel but a wonderful saving of time and many hours for reading and rec reation that before she spent over a hot stove. It is now not only a possi ble but an easy matter to feed the average family with a kerosene stove and a flreless cooker, or when using a range, to start the dinner while cooking breakfast, place In the fire less cooker and leave until dinner time. Progressive women In our farm homes are realizing more every day that it is not necessary' to spend all of their time ."In their kitchens, and many homes already have install ed this time and labor saving device in their kitchens. And it not only means time to read, visit and eew, but a honijj free from the heat of a range and also free from the odors of meats, vegetables, etc. Few of us ever realize that' the odor of sbip, vegetables and meats, through our houses is just so much flavor lost fom the food. In the airtight ves sels of a flreless cooker these flavors are conserved and ' Instead of hav ing odors of cooking food from kitch en to living room, we have a better flavored, more nutritious food, and a house free from odor and heat One will use carefully the direc tions given wjth cooker until " they become familiar with the use of It, they can then follow the ordinary methods andv principles of cookery. These cookers are not, however, as they are often advertised, automatic maids. The food must be prepared, the stones properly heated, and the cooker itself kept scrupulously clean to be a success. This takes seme time, knowledge and work, but It gives in return hours of freedom from the kitchen, a house free from odors and well cooked food, with no loss of flavor or nutrition. However, the fireless cooker does not broil or fry successfully. Food prepared that way must depend upon flame. One can serve' a full dinner very successfully with a two burner gas or kerosene stove and a three compart ment fireless cooker. The following dinner menu has been prepared and served with a one burner kerosene stove, a three compartment flreless cooker, with two 8-quart utensils, one triple utensil and three stones: Wm Vr-w and Wiip-h Shaltnn h OrMin fif corn ami TV smothered ChlCk- recelved information that they pass-j en, boiled potatoes, lima beans, raisin ed a satisfactory examination before J bread, tomato and cheese salad, may the state board of examiners and wCl onaise, frote n custard snd angel eake were baked the day before. The do tatoes, lima beans and soup cooked in the triple utensil, the chicken in one 8-quart utensil and the cuBtard frozen in the other. The flame In the kerosene stove was used for coffee and finishing gravy, heating stones, etc. You will vfind that the fireless cooker wil conserve the cold as well as the heat, and any frozen desert not needing to be stirred may be frozen with a saving of Ice and time. It is very necessary to pack the ves sel containing the desert in the 8-quart vessel with ice and salt and leave about four hours. ROOSEVELT MAN ASKED TO RESIGN THE.
