Ing -with garments which, while of no
earthly use to their original owners,
aro still thought to he too good to be
stow upon the rag-man, and are kept,
for wo hardly know what purpose.
The mothers, have never thought" of
the possibilities of these old "duds,"
but It would be. worth while to bring
thero-to the light, and determine wnat
they are worth in skilled hands.
A fairly good suifc of the father's
will be found to contain plenty of ma
terial to make a suit for the " little
man, and with a little patient plan
ning, new linings, thread, buttons and
a well-fitting pattern, it will pay to
mako over many things. These gar
ments should be ripped apart, the thin
places either cut out or darned down
to an under facing, brushed, sponged
or washed and pressed, and the pat
tern carefully laid before cutting in
,.prder to choose the best pieces for
parts hat will have the most strain
Often there are skirts of heavy ma
terial which have "shortened up" or
are hopelessly out of style,-or some
breadths may have stains that make
the garment out of the question for
wear by the mother or older girls, and
these, ripped apart and cleansed will
make lovely, little suits for the small
children. These made-overs may be
dyed into really pretty colors, and
be really "like new" to the new wear
ers. Knit underwear from the ward
robe of the elders is readily made
into comfortable clothing for smaller
ones, and a thrifty, careful woman can
save a great deal by this method.
Skirts and waists of wash material,
or light weight woolens are readily
converted into suits for the Jittle wo
men, and, by a tasteful combination,
may often be made to fill some need
of eve the larger daughters, leaving
the ready money to be expended on
the mother. Heavy jackets or out of
date coats can be fashioned int) over
coats and school wraps, by a little
planning and a- good bit of work, and
the mother or older daughters can
thus supply themselves with the
newer styles. See what you have on
hand before making out your list for
the new garments. Use up the cast
offs, and make room for the new.
A correspondent asks for some good
recipes for making breakfast rolls,
specially asking for "the" recipe for
making Parker Houso rolls. For the
xarker House rolls, I think I have a
dozen different recipes, and will give
one which is recommended. Hore it
Is: Scald ono quart of milk and add
to it one-half cupful each of sugar and
butter, and one teaspoonful of salt;
stir In flour enough to make a batter
as thick as for pancakes; let it cool,
and when lukewarm, stir In half a
cupful of yeast or a cake of com
pressed yeast dissolved In a littlo
warm water; set In a warm place to
rise, and when very light add flour
and knead, into a dough, not too stiff;
flatten with a rolling pin and cut into
cakes about an inch thick with a bis
cuit cutter; roll out each cake separ
ately, spread with butter, fold dou
ble and let riBe again, and bake twen-.
Breakfast Biscuit To one pint of
scalded milk add one rounding table
spoonful of butter; when lukewarm,
stir in. one quart of flour, a little salt,
one well beaten egg and one teacupful
of liquid, or ono cake of dried yeast;
knead until smooth, then, in cold
weather, set in a warm place to rise
overnight. In tho morning work
lightly, roll out and cut into biscuits,
let rise half an hour and bake.
Parker House Rolls, No. 2. To ono
quart of sifted flour add ono teaspoon
ful of salt; lot one-half pint now milk
come to a boil; when cool, stir in tho
salted flour with a spoon; it will just
tako up -the milk; Into this put two
tablespoonfuls each of whitd sugar
and butter, and three tablespoonfuls
of good liquid yeast, and sot to rise.
When light, make Into a loaf with as
little flour as possible, let rise about
an hour; then roll out as for biscuit,
cut with a biscuit cutter, spread but
ter on top and fold together; put in
tins not touching each other, let rise
again and bake.
Graham Gems. Ono egg, one cup of
sweet milk, one cup of white flour,
one cupful of graham flour, two tea
spoonfuls baking powder, one table
spoonful of melted butter, one table
spoonful of sugar and a little salt;
beat well together; drop by spoonfuls
into a "well-greased pan, dipping the
spoon each time Into a cup of water
so that the batter will slip smoothly
from It, and bako in a hot oven that
the gems may bo crisp.
Many housekeepers living in "farming
and village communities do not make
their own yeast, depending on the
commercial article, but would much
prefer home-made dry yeast if that
which Is satisfactory could be had.
Here is an avenue for the making of
"pin money" of which many careful
women might avail themselves. A
good trade might bo worked up at
snail expense, if It became generally
known that one could buy good, re
liable yeast from a neighbor. Here is
a very highly recommended recipe,
which one might try:
Put to soak a third of a coffee-cupful
of good, dry yeast; put a pint of
good hops Into a vessel with one and
a half pints of warm water; set on
tho stove, and when well scalded
strain and pour the water over a pint
of flour (which has been sifted into an
earthen vessel) while very hot. Peel
a half gallon of potatoes, boll tender
and pour the water from them, also,
over the flour while it Is very hot.
There should be enough of tho potato
and hop water combined to make a
batter as thin as used for sponge in
making bread. Mash the potatoes
through, a sieve or colander and add
to tho batter, as the potatoes greatly
improve the yeast Beat this batter
thoroughly, and when cold add the
yeast which has been soaking; let it
stand over night in a warm place,
and In the morning it should be light
and spongy. Do not use any more wa
ter but stir into the spongy batter
nnnKCTh nnrnmatii tn make it very stiff.
Many women crumble this stiffened
mass and it dries quickly, with no 1
danger of souring or heating, whllo
othors mold it Into small cakc3. It
should bo dried quickly. This amount
will mako sixteen pints of yeast, and
a good profit might bo made on it at
6 cents a pint Everything about tho
yeast, including tho ono who makes
it should be daintily clean, from tho
beginning to tho time It Is put up In
neat packages and offored for Bale.
Mrs. D. G. Answered your query
by mail. Thanks for kind words.
. Jennie. Try sprinkling a teaspoon
ful of flour over cold sliced potatoes
when frying them. It improves them.
Lilllan.Violot and orris root make'
a good combination for scent satchotn
to be laid among clothes. Tho orris
imparts a delicious odor of cleanliness,
and tho violet gives tho dainty suspic
ion of fragrance that Is desirable.
Tlllie. For cocoanut candy, boll ono
pint of lump sugar and half pint of
wator for ton r Inutes; then remove
the seum, and when tho syrup Is thick
enough stir In a little more than one
fourth pound of freshly grated cocoa
nut; pour onto buttered paper, and
when cool, keep In tin boxes.
Robert D. To tako grease spots
from woollens, wash in gasoline as
you would in water, scouring the fab
ric well with tho hands, and hang out
to dry. Do this In tho open air, ns
gasolino must not be used whero there
Is tho least fire. Soiled coats and
pants may bo treated this way with
out any shrinking. A man can do this
as well as a woman.
New Cook. To remove tho odor of
onions from kettles and sauce pans,
put some wood ashes into tho vessel,
add boiling water and let stand on
the back of tho stovo for a short time.
Potash, or dissolved soda, may be
used, and tho vessel In all cases must
be well washed in soap suds after
wards. If the fat begins to foam while fry
ing croquettes, codfish balls, or dough
nuts, it is a sign that the grease is
not hot enough; stop tho frying for a
few minutes ana put tho kettle over
tho flro where it will get more heat;
when tho fat begins to smoke, a bit
of bread may bo dropped in, and if it
browns while you count sixty It Is hot
enough to resume the work inter
rupted. Mrs. I. M. J. Use your hand-carded
wool-batting as .you would cotton
batting, for your quilts and comforts,
knotting, or quilting, in the same man
ner. Lap tho edges of the bats a very
little, and they will mat together
.closely; there will he no shedding of
fibre. The bed clothing Is much
warmer and lighter when padded with
wool. It will depend on the quality of
the outside covering, and the amount
of usage to which it is subjected, as to
how long It will last The wool may
be washed and re-carded when desired.
Toilet Here Is a recipe furnished
by a family of noted housekeepers:
Two pounds of pure beef tallow, one
pound of sal soda, ono quarter pound
of fine salt, one ounce of gum cam
phor, half pint of glycerin, one ounce
of borax; boil slowly for ono hour,
stirring frequently with a wooden
spatula. Set It off the fire until cold;
then bring to a boil again, and add a
pound of best refined sugar, and one
half pound of coarse oatmeal. Per
fume with rose, sassafras, burgamot,
or whatever suits' the maker.
Mrs. J. Jm The most satisfactory
way to deal with suspected vermin in
tho newly rented house Is to fumigate
with sulphur. Tho ordinary powder
will do, but sulphur candles are more
satisfactory and- can be procured from
the druggist. It is best to fumigate
the rooms while empty, but It can be
done afterwards, one or more rooms
at a time. All silver or steel ware,
and all living plants must be removed
out of reach of the fumes. Place the
lighted candle iri an old kettle and";
after tightly closing the room, stuff
ing all cracks about doors and open
ings, lot It stay cloficd for floveral
hours, or oror night If possible.
Annio S. A good puff paste Is mada
by using ono pound of flour, ono pound
of fresh butter and salt to taste. Have
everything as cold as convenient Mix
half of each into a plinhlo dough with
ico-cold wator; roll tho dough, cut
off bits of the remaining butter (iiBlng
each tlmo one-fourth of tho half not
mixed) and sprlnklo about over tho
dough, sift over this ono-fourth tho
remaining flour, fold, and roll again,
but do not roll hard; when rolled, put
another fourth of tho butter on, sift
one-fourth of tho flour over It and
told and roll. Continue this until all
tho butter and flour has been used,
then roll up in a towol, put on Ice,
nnd, if convenient, let stand on ice un
til ,tho next day.
A strike In tho stock yards of Chi
cago, 111., was augmented by thd walk
ing out pf. packing houso canners on
October 29, thus increasing the num
ber of strikers to 2,400 mon. It Is
said that sixteen other branches of
organized labor will mako demands
In tho packing houses and more than
32,000 employes aro said to stand ready
to support tho strikers.
