Guests for the week-end? or just
the family? Whichever it is you’ll
want to take a brief vacation from
the kitchen or it won’t really be
Labor day for you.
Here's how you do it: Bake the
nutbread in advance, it’s better if
it stands a day or
so. Mix the meat
and set in the re
frigerator until
ready to bake.
As a vegetable
you’ll like tender
corn with lots of
butter, takes only
a few minutes to cook, you know.
Your salad is simple and is tossed
in a few seconds. Dessert, too, you
can make the day before and just
wait until you see what a lovely sur
prise it is, too. Cool and delicious,
the orange freeze is tops.
A change in the meat course is
the order of the day. A touch of
fruit borrowed from a favorite cake
and three of your favorite kinds of
meat go to make up this:
'Apricot Upside-Down Meat Loaf.
(Serves 8 to 10)
1 pound smoked ham (ground twice)
% pound beef (ground)
% pound fresh pork (ground
2 eggs
% cup cold water
1 cup milk
1 cup cornflakes (crushed)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
% teaspoon pepper
% teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon onion (very flnely
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons brown sugar
18 dried apricot halves (cooked)
Combine smoked ham, beef and
pork with slightly beaten eggs, milk,
water and cornflakes. Mix thorough
ly and add Worcestershire sauce,
pepper, mustard, and finely minced
onion. Melt butter in bottom of a
9 by 5 by 3 loaf pan. Add brown
sugar and heat until well blended.
Arrange apricots, cut side up, on
the bottom of the pan. Pack the
meat mixture over the apricots.
Bake in a moderate oven (350 de
grees) for 1V« hours.
You’ll really approve of this new
dessert idea, and since it's light it
will be especially appropriate with
a substantial main course:
•Orange Freese.
(Makes 1V£ quarts)
% cup sugar
1 cup water
1 package orange-flavored gelatin
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups milk
Combine sugar and water and boil
2 minutes. Remove from fire and
dissolve gelatin in hot syrup. Add
fruit juices. Turn into freezing tray
of automatic refrigerator, setting to
coldest freezing temperature. When
partially frozen, turn into cold bowl
and beat with rotary beater until
thick and fluffy. Add milk and beat
until blended. Return to tray, stir
every 30 minutes, and freeze until
firm (5 to 6 hours).
Peach Shortcake.
Since peaches are so very good
this year, you’ll want to make the
most of them. This will win your
Vegetables with interesting
background and good vitamin
stories intrigue me. Take water
cress, for instance. You may
once have gathered this tender
little green among brooks and
runs, but its history harks back
much longer than either you or I.
Watercress is an excellent
source of vitamin A which pro
motes growth, increases resist
ance to infective diseases and
prevents eye diseases. Excellent
too is watercress in vitamin C
which is so essential to good bone
and teeth formation.
Vitamin B, too, is found in its
leaves, and that, you know, stim
ulates appetite and protects nerve
and brain tissue and brain func
tion. Its vitamin G content will
help you have normal nutrition.
The iron it contains in its copper
and magnesium deposits helps
make blood and nourish teeth.

Check Pest Growth Now;
Save Spring Trouble.
(Agricultmal Agent at Large,
Uaasacbusatta State College.)
In the spring people talk about
weeds as well as about the weather,
only they do something about the
weeds. But in the fall, weeds are
overlooked. They are often accept
ed as part of the scenery and noth
ing much is done about them. In
fact, they are not always even
talked about. But the late summer
and the fall is really the time to
save a lot of future trouble. For
that time of year annual weeds are
forming thousands of seeds and lay
ing the foundations for next year’s
abundance. Perennial weeds are
busy storing up food in their roots
for good, strong growth next spring.
The simplest thing to do about
these fall weeds is to see that they
never ripen seeds. Mow them, or
pull them before the seeds are ripe.
It is usually best to rake them up
and destroy them after they are
cut, for weed seeds will ripen after
the plant is killed. They put their
last resources into preparing for the
coming generation.
The mowing machine, the scythe,
or just a plain knife may be used—
all depending upon the size of the
job; but don’t forget fence comers
and the patches of waste land.
These may be more expensive areas
than you might suspect if they
spread weeds over the rest of the
farm, and this is the time of year
to cut down their costs.
Encourage the weed seeds to
sprout in the land to be seeded this
fall. Then harrow them up at in
tervals before seeding time comes
around. Soon all the weed seeds
in the surface soil will have sprout
ed, and if, when grass and clover
are seeded, care is taken not to
bring to the surface new soil with
additional weed seeds, the crop next
year should be exceptionally clean.
Fall plowing is often a help in
killing perennial weeds such as
witch grass and other “tough cus
tomers.” If weed roots can be ex
posed to the cold and drying of win
ter winds, the plants will have a
hard time starting in the spring.
Harrowing with a spring-tooth har
row to bring these roots to the sur
face is often a help.
Taking care of weeds in the fall
will make that spring weeding job
much less arduous. In the long run,
time spent fighting weeds at this
time of year will do more good than
it will in the spring. And almost
equally important, fall weed con
trol makes the whole place neat and
attractive and supplies a “Good
Farmer” label that no passerby
can miss.
Can Control Gullies
By Eliminating Cause
Keeping water out of gullies is
a sure way of controlling them,
and this can be done by terrac
ing, explains R. C. Hay, exten
sion agricultural engineer of the
University of Illinois college of
agriculture. The approaching
slack season after harvest is a
good time of the year to do ter
racing work.
Gullies on cultivated slopes can
be starved and eventually elimi
nated by terracing. The terraces
not only slow up and divert run
off water from gullies but also
materially reduce sheet erosion
losses. Farmers’ experiences and
experiments conducted under the
supervision of farm advisers and
the college of agriculture show
that terraced fields lose only
about one-seventh as much soil
by erosion as comparable unter
raced fields.
R. C. Hay explains that water
diverted from fields must be han
dled with care or the formation of
gullies at the outlets may result.
Proper Planning Helps
Avoid Pasture Shortage
Livestock men who are finding
themselves short on pasture in late
summer and fall might well lay
plans now for better protection
against shortages next year.
W. H. Peters, chief of the animal
husbandry division. University farm.
St. Paul, urges rotation grazing of
permanent pasture.
For alternate grazing Peters ad
] vises fencing off a pasture into two
fields and running the stock into
one for two weeks and into the other
for a like period. This will result in
giving less strain on pasture plants.

Small Turkeys
In experiments to develop small
type white turkeys, the U. S. depart
ment of agriculture is not trying to
displace the larger varieties; it is
frying to develop small birds to
fit the needs of small families. In

room for the small-type and
medium-sized turkey, and that some
growers will find it very much to
their advantage to specialize in
