That the lumber barons have pret
i^ty safe control of the house through
the grace of Speaker Cannon is quite
"t apparent from reported lumber
schedule which is very likely to go to
the senate In Its present form. Then
If the vote on tbis part of the Payne
bill is anyways close in the senate it
will idieclose pretty nearly where the
influence of the Interests lies,
The National .Forest Conservation
League, of which Ex-Governor Van
Sant is president, and a number of
the most eminent men members of
the aidvisory committee, sends the
1 following description of 'the "joker"
In the proposed lumber tariff bill:
"The lumber schedule of the bill
the ways and means committee lias
reported is a profound disapolntment
the lumber consumer.
?:?"While the duty on rough lumber
finished lumber in all forms is left
I*' finished luni'ber in al 1 forms is left
Bsrfso high as to remain prohibitive.
"Rough lum'ber, owing to trans
portation charges, can not be im
ported into the United States except
where water transportation is avail
able. "Consequently the reduction on
rough lumber is of no benefit whut
ever to the farmers and other con
... Burners In the great interior coun
"iFlnished lumber can be imported
y« because of the saving in railway
rates as compared with rough lumber
if the tariff permit it, but as propos
ed it does not- permit It.
"About 90 per cent of the lumber
shipped from a mill by rail goes
through the planing mill 'before it is
•i put on the cars.
"About the same percentage of the
lumber sold at a retail lumber yard
is planed or finished in some meas
ure. That Is to say, the ordinary
consumer of lumber buys finished
lumber almost entirely.
"And the lum'ber schedule as draft
ed makes It impossible for him to
get this lumber from aibroad. There
fore, ihe. will be entirely dependent on
domestlce supplies as before.
"Tbfis is the kind of revision thnt
may fool, but will not benefit.
"•Every congressman who wants to
help his constituents to get cheaiper
lumber should insist on free lumber,
both rough and finished.
"(Failing in that, he should insist
thait finished lum'ber, which is what
his average constituent .buys, shall
•not be, taxed more than rough lum
ber, which is what the average con
stituent does not buy."
The Democrat regrets to see die
sentions in the ranks of progressive
republicanism, as evinced iby the
ppen letter of R. 0. Richards to Sen
ator Crawford. As Mr. Richards
.gives notice that hie will no
'longer train with Senator Craw
ford, what will he do? He has
too much zeal 'and public spirit
to iecarae inactive. This being the
oase, he has but two courses left
open he might join the democrats
on the very logical ground that after
all the 'best hope of the country is a
xegeneralted democracy, or he must
join the standpatters who stand for
\i vested rights and. scout at all man-

Soon after Senator Crawford got

slipped out to a fashionable hatters

because of this modest statesman's
act. Mr. Crawford will weather the
flurry of criticism. A few years
since he went before the people, al
most alone, contending for certain
reforms. He kept right on, rain or

few high politicians in this state
who won by the advocation of clean
measures. The senator can crown

On "Tick''
Did you ever meet, the man who
keeps his change and gets "tick" at
the stores? "Guess you kin set that,
down agin me." he loquciously re
marks. after he has traded a snug
little "bill."
One of these "tick" fellows came
out of a grocery store the other day,
his arms loaded with supplies.
"Did you pay," asked his wife,
who was sitting in a buggy.
"Naw, I may need some mon to
use," he replied, glancing down the
street the direction of the Red
There are a great many of these
"tick" customers, but there is one
firm they have no honor with. It
isn't the good, old, honest corner
grocer. Oh, no—he carries them
from year to year.
It is a great, keen company in
Chicago that teaches the "tick" fel

ed Riphard as he seized the dice
to shake against tour sixes.
Rogers was a builder. To finance
his operations he had to borrow heav
ily, giving his property that was un
der construction as collatral. One
of the men who lent money to him
was a Jew. At first Rogers pros
pered, but later things began to go
badly. One trouble after another
overtook him, and late one night he
went to bed knowing that on the mor
row he would have to confess to his
creditors that he was insolvent. Even
then he might have escaped with his
financial skin whole had he chosen to
avail himself of some loophole of the
law—some chicane that might strip
him temporarily of his self-respect,
but leave him a fair share of money.
But Instead of doing anything that
was ln the slightest degree dishonest,
he met his troubles like a man.
One of Rogers' creditors was the
Jew. He went to him at once and
said: "I can't go any further. I'm
up against a blank wall. The money
that I owe you I see no means of pay
ing. You have a mortgage on one of
the houses. Foreclose It at once in
order to protect yourself. That is your
duty. If you lose anything and I can
ever make up the loss to you I shall."
Rogers, having no capital to operate
with, tried several salaried positions,
and at last became one of the ap
praisers for a great life Insurance com
pany, passing upon the value of the
real estate and buildings that were
offered as collateral for loans. After
he had been at this work two years
the Jew called on him at his office
one day and handed to him a check
to his order for $7,000.
"What's this?" asked Rogers in
"That represents the profit on the
building you mortgaged to me two or
three years ago and which I have
Just sold."
"Profit? What have I to do with any
"I have repaid myself for the
amount of my loans to you. I have
added to this interest and all charges
to which I have been subjected in the
transaction. After deducting this from
the price I have received for the prop
erty there is a remainder of $7,000.
That money belongs to you. That is
why I give you this check."
Rogers put the $7,000 check ln his
pocket. There was a suspicion of mois
ture ln his eyes and a catch in his
voice as he thanked the Jew, who went
his way hastily.
In the days that darkened the close
of 1907 the life insurance companies
literally were begged for money by
men who offered excellent security.
Everybody was "turned down," yet
everybody begged and begged. One
man ln asking for a loan on his prop
erty said If he did not get it It meant
ruin to him. The appraiser reported
favorably, but even as he wrote the
report he knew the application would
be denied. And it ,was rejected flatly
and curtly. As the clerk was carrying
the papers out of the controller's office
Rogers happened by. A name indorsed
on the folded sheet caught his atten
tion. He asked a few questions and
then looked at the paper. In a flash
he realized the whole situation. The
name on the back of the paper was
that of the Jew, and if that loan was
rejected his friend would be ln dire
financial straits.
Though Rogers was only an apprais
er—a small Item ln the great staff of
the Insurance company—and though
he knew that he was risking his hum
ble position by doing so, and that
meant everything to him in those hard
timeB, he burried to the office of the
controller, an austere gentleman who
was hedged about by many assistants
and by much authority. He told the
controller vividly and simply the story
of his own failure, of the foreclosure
of the mortgage by the Jew and of the
$7,000 check two years later.
The controller listened attentively,
and the first words he said were over
the office telephone, to the clerk who
had charge of advising the would-be
borrowers of their loans and of their
"Send those papers ln that Cohen
loan application up to me at once."
When they reached him the control
ler looked them over and, turning to
the appraiser, said:
"I'll make that loan. By the Lord
Harry, If it was the last dollar that this
company had to lend I would let that
man have it."

Economy In Buying Whole Ham
Smaller Ones to Be Preferred
Bacon and Apples Good Dish
on Chilly Night.
A ham Is an economy at this season.
Buying a 12-pound ham, It may be
sawed In two
pieces and the
heavy end boiled.
Soak over night
and scrub with
soap and water.
Rub and rinse
well. Put over the
Are ln cold water
and let boil 15
minutes to the pound. The smaller
hams always come from younger pigs
and are to be preferred. Too fat a
ham is as undesirable as too lean a
Broiled ham is good and the barbe
cued, as it is called, has its friends.
Cut rather thick slives of cold boiled
ham and lay them ln a frying-pan.
Cook on both sides until they begin to
crisp at the edges and then put on a
hot dish. Add to the fat ln the pan
four tablespoonfuls of vinegar, a salt
spoonful of English mustard, a tea
spoonful of white sugar and a few
dashes of black pepper. Boll up once,
pour over the ham, let It stand covered
for a coupie of minutes and send i.o
the table. There is no more savory
method of cooking ham than this, and
it wins almost universal approbation.
By way of a fry, bacon and apples
are good on a chilly night. Cut the
bacon very thin. Lay It In a hot pan
and fry it quickly ln Its own fat. Keep
It hot on a plate after taking It up,
and fry in the fat left ln the pan thick
slices of cored but unpeeled apples.
When cooked tender, serve ln the dish
with the bacon, the latter laid about
the edge of the platter. If the apples
are very tart sprinkle a little granu
lated sugar upon them just before
taking them from the pan. Sweet or
semi-sweet apples are best for this
dish. Apples may be fried In butter
afcd taste well.
Veal and Ham Patties—Required:
Half a pound of good pastry (putt
best), six ounces of cooked veal, three
ounces of cooked ham, one ounce of
good butter, three-quarters of an ounce
of flour, a gill and a half of milk, or
half milk and half white stock, one
teaspoonful of lemon juice, seasoning,
nutmeg, cayenne.
Stamp the pastry Into small cakes,
using a cutter or lid of tin. Mark the
centers with a smaller cutter, pushing
It about half way down, on ro account
right through.
Cut out small rounds to act as lljs.
Place cases and lids on an ungreased
baking sheet and bake them in a very
hot oven for about ten minutes, or
until crisp and delicately browned.
Remove the marked centers care
fully and scoop out t'ne soft Interior,
so as to leave empty cases.
Mince the veal and ham somewhat
coarsely. Melt the butter in a sauce
pan, stir in the Hoar smoothly, add the
milk and stir over the fire until it
Stir in the veal and ham and season.
When cold, fill in the cases neatly,
and place a small lid of pastry on top
of each.
The quantities given will make 18
Bouillabaisse (Marseilles).
To be a success this dish must be
highly seasoned and Include a great
variety of fish. Heat half a cupful ol
pnre olive oil ln a saucepan add five
or bIx little onions, a bay leaf, two
roots of parsley, three bunches of
thyme, a branch of soup celery and
three or four cloves. Moisten with a
quart of flsh stock, add a pinch of
Spanish saffron, diluted in a little
water. Nod add any firm flsh at hand.
It is always better to Include salmon,
while an eel is imperatively demanded
by the French housewife. A small
lobster, a very small base, the same
sized flounder, and a few smelts make
a good combination. Dust lightly with
salt—remember, the flsh stock is sea
soned—and set the saucepan on the
back of the range to cook very slow
ly. When tender- remove to a deep
flsh, in the bottom of which are strips
of hot fried bread. Pile the flsh above
the bread, with the lobster on top, and
serve exceedingly hot
Kentucky Potatoes.
Pare and slice four good-sized pota
toes put a layer of these slices ln the
bottom of a baklng-dlsh sprinkle with
salt and pepper, then another layer of
potatoes and so continue until sll the

dish with milk—that is, the potatoes
should be covered, no more put over
the top a few bits of butter, sprinkle
the whole lightly with bread emmbs
soil bake in a moderate oven tor three
quarters of an hour. These, If nicely
prepared, are delicious.
'Frying Eggs.
The most disagreeable part of tir
ing eggs is the sputtering and flying
of the hot fat. This may be avoided
by sifting a little flour ln the zian
before adding the eggs. This yon will
find to work like a charm, and es

Enchiladas a Popular DIcH with Our
Neighbors to the South.
Take 25 cents' worth round steak,
cut ln cubes and- brown same as for a
pot roast. When brown, cover with
boiling water, then slice one large
onion, one clove of garlic, one bay
leaf, three or four large red peppers,
one can of tomatoes and season with
salt. Stew slowly for three hours.
When the meat Is tender strain the
chill sauce off and thicken with brown
flour. Keep hot on back of stove. To
prepare the tortillas, take one quart of
flour, a large spoonful of lard, tea
spoonful of salt moisten with water
as for biscuits. Take a piece of the
dough as large as an egg and roll out
the size of a breakfast plate. When
you have a half dozen rolled, you may
begin to bake—by frying ln deep fat
ln a frying pan. Do not fry brown the
fat must not be so hot as for dough
nuts. Proceed until all the dough is
used, which will make about a dozen
tortillas. Now have ready the meat,
chopped fine, six large onions, one
pound grated (ball) cheese. Have the
chill sauce hot, dip the tortillas In one
at a time place on a large hot platter,
sprinkle with cheese. On one half
place a little meat, onions, olives,
sliced hard boiled eggs and pour a
spoonful of sauce over it, and fold
over the other half of the tortillas.
Proceed ln this manner until all are
filled pour over what sauce remains
and sprinkle a little grated cheese
over all. Place in the oven for ten
minutes then take out and garnish
with lettuce, olives and sliced hard
boiled eggs. Serve. Delicious.
As a Delicacy for Dessert This Has
Few Equals.
Peel and core a pound of baking
apples. Put them In a pan, with a lit
tle butter, cover and simmer with the
grated peel of half a lemon when
stewed soft mash with a wooden spoon
and add sugar according to taste. To
be successful this marmalade has to1
be very thick. Have a cylindric pud
ding mould, well buttered. Cut some
slices of stale bread, remove the crust,1
shape them Into rectangles about one
and a half inch broad and as long as
the depth of the mould. Dip in a little
melted butter and place them all
around the mould, overlapping each
other. Cover the bottom with small
triangles of well-buttered bread. When
done put the apples ln, cover with an
other slice of bread and bake for one
hour ln a rather slow oven. When
ready to serve turn upside down on a
dish and mould out. Serve with a little
cream or with a little apricot sirup,
easily made with Jam, cleared with a
drop of water and passed through a
fine colander.
Turkey Rolls and Soup.
Melt three tablespoons butter, blend
ln three tablespoons flour, add gradual
ly 1% cups turkey stock. Season to
taste with pepper, salt and celery salt
Stir until smooth and thick and add
1% cups chopped turkey. Remove
the middle from crisp rolls, fill with
the prepared mixture, place In oven
until hot and serve. If you have
some left-over gravy, thicken it a bit
more, add about a tablespoon of but
ter and use in place of the first three
named articles, as one does not often
have the stock. You can get about
1% cups of turkey from the carcass
after the rest of the turkey Is eaten,
then break up carcass, put in a gran
ite dish, add two onions, one cup rice,
pieces of celery, also season with
celery salt, salt and pepper. Cover
with cold water and let cook slowly
four or five hours and you have a de
licious soup.
Favorite Mold.
Take a third of a pint ot milk and
ln a small quantity of it dissolve a
quarter of an ounce of gelatin. When
It has soaked Bome time, add the beat
en yolk of an egg and an ounce of
sugar. Bring the reBt of the milk to
the boll and pour It over the gelatin,
stir well and let the mixture boll
again. Directly It reaches the boiling'
point pour over the beaten white of an
egg. Mix the whole thoroughly and
pour into a mold. The mold must not
be stirred or shaken till cold and look
like a thick cream, surmounted with a
clear jelly.
Onion Egg.
Boll one dozen eggs quite hard, slice
and- fry in butter six large oniony
slice ten of the eggs, keeping two of
them for seasoning drain the fried
onions and lay on a dish with the
sliced eggs placed over them cover
the dish and keep hot. Crate the yolks
of the remaining two eggs and mix
with sweet cream, a little grated nut

mixture ln a small saucepan one min
