lished at Mr. Hester's old home had the

The grand rush that is being made to
the Oklahoma country cannot fail to re
sult disastrously to a large number of
people, it is estimated on good uuthoi
ity that there will not lie sutlicient land
to furnish one quarter-section to each of
the land takers who are ulready there.
From the history of former attempts
to settle the country by many of the
same "boomers" who are still there, it
is but right to infer that they will stop
at nothing, not even murder, to secure
the coveted land.

God took thee in His mercy,
A lamb untasked, untried.

And thou art satisfied.

Within a crystal stone,
Thou art safe in Heaven, my dove

The Everlasting One.
And when the hour arrives,
From flesh that sets me free,
Thy spirit may await,
The first at Heaven's gate,
To meet and welcome me.

Cabbage in Half au Hour.
For the benefit of the mothers who
may think either I or the cooking school
have gone astray on the matter of cook
ing cabbage, I want to emphasize here
the advantage of the new way over the
old. 1 was as skeptical over the notion
of cabbage being properly cooked in half
an hour as any one of you can lie; but
my first experience corrected me, and
all who tasted this maligned vegetable
served after the. new method declared
Have plenty of salted, boiling water,
in which a teaspoonfull of soda has lieen
dissolved, plunge the cabbage in
downward, leave it uncovered and
boil until tender, that will be, as
in the time table, from twenty minutes
to half an hour. , Take it out into a col
ander, drain well, put into a hot, dish.
put in bits of butter some salt and pep
per, and serve at once. It will be as del
icate as cauliflower; the color will lie re
tained and there will not be an unpleas
ant odor over the house, such as is al
ways associated with boiling cabbage
Try it once, and then see if the Schoo
Kitchen Learning has not gotten several
steps in advance ol your old, traditional
methods. Sally Joy White, in Wide
