The form and flavor of any medi

who is to take it. The taste and
appearancc are especially important
when children are concerned. All
parents know how hard it is to give
the average child "medicine," even
though the taste is partially dis

Raspberry and Currant Jam.
In England currants are always add

sult is far more delicious than when
the raspberries alone are used. To one
quart of raspberries use one pint of
currants. Wash the currants and cook
them in a very little water until quite
soft, press them through the jelly bag
and return the juice to the fire. Add
the raspberries and cook for a few mo
ments, mashing them well. Then add
the sugar, using two pounds for the
quantity of fruit given, and cook until

any spots with fresh gasoline. Shake
It until it is dry or else pin It out on
