THE SEMI-MONTHLY MAGAZINE SECTION A Million Meals Tomorrow Will Include Puffed Wheat or Rice All over America folks will eat them, morning, noon and night. Some with cream and sugar, Some mixed with berries, Some in bowls of milk. You'll miss a treat if pou are not among them. No Foods Like These These curious foods Prof. Anderson's invention are like nothing else you know. The grains are steam-exploded - shot from guns. They are eight times normal size. Each grain consists of a myriad cells, surrounded by thin, toasted walls. And they melt into granules, with a most enticing taste. Like Toasted Nuts The grains are airy wafers, crisp and brown. The terrific heat which precedes the explosion makes them taste like toasted nuts. And never were cereal foods maile so digestible. The countless food granules are blasted to pieces. In these ways Puffed Grains excel all other foods. " l rz - fk V Til One Way of Serving is in bowls of milk. The grains are crisper than crackers lour times as porous as bread. And they float. '1 hey are wholegrains made wholly !' digestible. Think what a "good night" dish. Also use them like nuts. Scatter them over a dish of icecream. Use them in candy making. Serve as crisps in soup. Puffed Wheat, 10c Exce" Puffed Rice, 15c Extreme West The most scientific, most digestible, most delicious cereals known. Made for children who deserve the best. The Quaker Oafs ($mpany Sole Makers CHICAGO o o MEIRM 'T'KX years ago household equipment usually simply "happened." .Men were engaged in per feet ing t'ann and lnetory machinery, and systematizing the world's industries, and hail n't yet gotten around to providing suitable appliances for the little domestic "factory" which every housewife has running at home. Nowadays the men who make tilings have turned their attention to providing wonderful array of stop-saving equip ment, and are designed to hold an excep tionally large supply of spices, coffee, flour, canned goods and other foods which are used in the natural course of events in the preparation of meals, ,-iImi a huge cupboard for kitchen utensils that occu pies a minimum amount of space. Another innovation for kitchen etli ciency is a porcelain topped kitchen table In the accessibility of utensils lies the success of an Ideal Kitchen the home, and especially the kitchen, with as efficient labor and time saving ap pliances and tools as an up-to-date fac tory can boast. The modern kitchen can be a thing of beauty and a joy even to the woman who works in it, so great have, been the improvements made. Take for instance, the evolution of the tireless cook stove, a miracle working con trivance which banishes heat, steam, smells, and standing over the stove watch ing the slow tedious cooking process. Lined with seamless aluminum, gist proof, tarnish-proof, and durable utensils to use with it, and a cunningly contrived steam valve attachment which allows the roasting of meats and fouls, the baking of bread and pies, as well as boiling and stewing. It is indeed a wonderful con venience. All that is necessary is to heat, the soap stone radiators either on a gas or electric stove and lay them in the tireless cook stove. Then the food, meats, vegetables, or whatever is to be cooked cooks just as it is, and it is forgotten until the clock says it should be done. It probably isn't known that every branch and variety of the cooking art run be successfully employed with the tireless cook stove. Indeed, such a great variety of either substantial meals, or light delicate dain ties for high teas, etc., are possible, and that a series of lessons and recipes in tireless cookery is supplied by one manu facturer of tireless cook stoves. lint after all the real reason for their existence lies in the fact that the newer stoves do really mean farewell to the old method of cooking. The earlier models of these cookers showed a very cumbersome box that took up a lot of space in a small kitchen, but they have now been reduced to occupy waste space, and some of the later de signs show them sw inging on hinges under the kitchen table, where they may be pushed out of sight and out of the way while the rest of the meal is being (ire pared. One of the best equipments in which a fireless cooker has apeared is the latest design of a kitchen cabinet with fireless cooker attached. These cabinets have a solid white porcelain with rounded cor ners and edges, which is seamless, un breakable and unchipal le, and at once be comes a moulding board for pie baking, or a meat board or bread board, for cook ing and slicing. This is far superior to the old wooden table tops which became the "catchall" for grease and other substances, ow ing to the surface being scored from knife blades while preparing meals. The best thing of all alum a kitchen table of this kind is that it can be kept spotlessly clean -- really hvgienically clean bv wiping off with a hot wet doth. fnfi A modern kitchen table with sanitary, unbreakable top While these innovations are the most prominent improvements in kitchen etli cieney that have appeared this past sum mer, a tour of inspection of any house furnishing establishment will show a be wildering array of new ly thought-out toojs and appliances, and many hundreds of little devices for the saving of t ime and effort. A new arrangement of the kitchen thought out by a Chicago architect places the pantry in an alcove, with shelves and closets on three sides. Although actually a part of the kitchen and making that small room easier to move about iii. it is measurably apart from it. This plan mav be used to advantage when no outside window for the pantry can be obtained, as the latter will be sufficiently lighted from the kitchen.
