CHEAPER CUTS OF MEAT.
When (ho housewlfo 1b busy with
tho houseclennlng or any henvy extra
work which occu
pies her nttontlon,
then is tho tlmo to
uso tho cheaper
meats in long
which will take
caro ot itself and
not need watching.
On wash day when tho top of tho
stove Is covered with tho boiler an
oven pot roast may bo most accept
able. Use a piece from tho hip, about
live pounds; tho bono may bo re
moved and tho meat cut In slices
Pound into the meat a cupful of flour,
a tablespoonful cS salt and a half tea
Bpoonful of pepper. Sear tho meat In
hot fat, add a pint of tomatoes and
water to barely cover; cook gently for
an hour. Then add a dpzen small
onions and cook two and a half hours
longer and servo surrounded with the
onions. Tho flour will thicken tho
gravy sufficiently. Tho bono that was
removed may bo broken up, covered
with cold water and tho broth kept
for various uses, either a soup or a
sauce, or a flavoring for a stow.
If one does not wish to use all the
moat of the chine or altch bone, a
portion of the meat left on tho bono
may bo cut In bits, a tablespoonful ot
minced onion added, a teaspoonful of
chopped parsley, some bits of fat ba
con or suet, a little lemon julco and
rind and salt and pepper, make into
balls and serve for a supper or a
luncheon dish with, potatoes.
If there Is not meat enough to make
Into balls, season as above and sprin
kle it over layers of cooked macaroni
and white sauce, then bako for a half
hour and serve hot.
A butcher remarked the other day,
"There Is no tough meat, It Is simply
the manner In which It is cooked
which makes meat tough." There is
certainly a good deal of truth in tho
statement, for very tough meat may
be made palatable by tho right treat
ment. Add a tablespoonful of vinegar
to the meat if a stow. Soak it in ollvo
oil and vinegar, two tablespoonfuls of
each, If it 1b a steak. It Is far better
to stew tough steak than to try to
broil it for tough meat should bo soft
ened by slow cooking. Slow cooking
means keeping tho temperature even
below the simmering point.
FOODS FOR THE BABY.
Orange juice Is a most wholesome
drink to give even very young ba
bies. Strain tho juice
and give a teaspoonful
not just after or before
tho milk feeding. Small
babies need cool water
to drink; their milk Is
a food, not a drink, and
a fretful baby is often
crying for a drink.
Oatmeal Water. Blond
one tablespoonful of oat
meal with a tablespoonful of cold wa
ter. Add a dash of salt and stir into
a quart of boiling -water. Boll three
hours, adding water as it boils away.
Strain through a fine siovo. A baby
six months old may bo fed oatmeal
or barley water or it may bo used in
preparing its food if fed from tho bot
tle. Barley water corrects looseness
of tho bowels and tho oatmeal the
tendency toward constipation.
Barley Water. Take two table
spoonfuls of barley, one quart of wa
ter, boll continuously for six hours,
adding enough water to keep a quart.
Strain through a njuslln. Soak tho
barley before putting it to cook.
Oatmeal Gruel. To three cupfuls of
boiling water add a half cupful of
oatmeal, and a half teaspoonful of
salt. Cook five hours in a double
boiler. Dilute with hot milk and
Arrowroot Gruel. This is a valuable
food In diarrhea. Mix two tablespoon
fuls of arrowroot, ono teaspoonful of
sugar, a pinch of salt with two table
spoonfuls of cold water. Add a cup
ful of boiling water, stirring con
stantly. Cook for 20 minutes, then
add two cupfuls of scalding milk, and
bring once more to tho boiling point.
Toaat Water. Tako sufficient toast
when broken in bits to measure two
cupfuls. Add to this ono pint of boil
ing water and let stand an hour.
Strain through a cheese cloth. Servo
hot or cold.
Plain Bread Pudding. Scald a cup
ful of milk. To a beaten egg, add ono
tablespoonful of sugar and a pinch of
salt. Pour on this the scalding milk.
Add ono cupful of bread cut In half-
inch cubes. Bake in a buttered bak
ing dish in a moderate oven until tho
custard is set. Servo with cream.

ALL SEEK FOR HAPPINESS
The One Thing for Which Mankind
May Be Said to Have a Univer
Wo cannot pick ami choose- tlio
happenings of life any moro than wo
can Belect the circumstances of our
birth and death; wo aro but creatures
ot a wonderful destiny directed by
tho Almighty. It Is said that many
tragedies of llfo might bo averted if
wo "took our medicine like inon" and
did not put our personal happiness
above everything else. It is as nat
ural and to bo expected to long for
happiness and cling to It as for tho
flowers to turn to tho sun. Happiness
is tho great lamp of llfo which lights
our way through all sorts of shad
ows shadows that blur the vision
and mako long nights of our days,
shadows that terrify by their gro
tesque shapes and threatening as
pects, and shadows that bury In their
depths much that wo hold most dear.
Wo are Jealous of our happiness and
guard It as tho most precious thing
In life and when wo watch It go down
the long aisles of memory further
and further away from our yearning
oyes wo begin to plead for It, and
strlvo for it,- anil fight for it. Wo
batter tho walks of tho past In our
vain efforts to call it back boforo It
Is too late, and spend long dayB and
waste precious strength In tho futllo
endeavor to clutch It back to our
hearts. And all tho whilo, perhaps
right at our hands within easy reach,
happiness in a new guiso stands ready.

that they aggravated my stomach
