water, enough to fully cover the jars,
bring the water to a boil, let boil for
ten minutes, remove the boiler from
the Are, and as soon as the Jars can
be handled, tighten the tops, and re
turn to the water until it is cold.
Wrap the jars in thick paper ana set
away in a cool dark place. Light
will bleach the tomatoes and may
cause them to spoil.
Preserved Pears with Ginger Cut
eight pounds of pears into small
pieces; pare a quarter of pound of
green ginger, and cut into small bits.
Cut six lemons the same way and
use the rinds of two; mix the pears,
lemons and ginger and add eight
pounds of sugar and a cupful of cold
water. Boil two hours, or until the
fruit is clear; keep the preserves in
stone jars. This is recommended.
Baked Apples Peel and core ten
medium sized apples; place in a bak
ing dish, filling holes with sugar;
make a sauce of three tablespoonfuls
of butter and three of flour creamed;
add boiling water to thicken; pour
over the apples; dust with nutmeg
and bako until done, basting them
once or twice with the cream in the
pan. Serve either hot or cold.
Budding Roses
B. H. Rhiel, in Column's Rural
World, says: "Roses may be budded
the same as fruit trees into any vigor
ous, hardy, rose stock,' Manettia and
our wild roses being the best. Roses
may bo budded now or any time dur
ing the season when the bark slips
easily. Buds to be used are taken
from young growth of this season;
the flower bearing shoots generally
furnish good buds. These buds may
be inserted into old or new stocks,
high or low. If stock is small the
bud may be put in near the ground
and the whole bush turned into the
variety which the bud represents. The
stock is to be cut off above the bud
about ten days after the bud is set.
Roses are always very effective when
budded high.
"I have in mind an arbor of roses
which originally consisted of one va
riety, the old Seven Sisters, which
now represents several varieties, and
the change brought about by budding.
Buds were placed from three to six
feet from the ground. Some of the
best hardy sorts were usea ana also
a few of the teas and hybrid teas,
which, though not hardy, can be pro
tected in this way perhaps better
than otherwise, that is, the long,
slender stock on which they are bud
ded can be easily bent to the ground
and the tender part covered. One of
the most interesting rose bushes I
have seen was a wild one growing in
a fence row, on which I budded Ma
rechal Niel, about four feet from the
ground. This bush produced, all sum
mer long, . roses that were the en
chantment of all who saw them, and
although one of the most tender va
rieties it was safely carried through
the severest winters by being bent to
the ground and covered with leaves.
I have also turned wild roses into
beautiful specimens by budding the
Crimson Rambler up high. We now
have the ideal rose to work in this
way it is the new Baby Rambler,
which when well established is never
seen out of bloom throughout the
growing season. I consider this one
of the grandest roses ever introduced.
After growing a wealth of bloom all
season it may be potted and had in
bloom all winter under favorable con
ditions. The blossoms have much the
same appearance as Crimson Ram
bler, but are not so double and there
fore all the more graceful."
Taking Out the Stains
There is no question tliat comes
more frequently to the Home Depart
ment than that of how to remove
spots and stains from the various fab
rics in use in the household. In order
to do the work intelligently, it is neces
sary to know the naturo of the stain,
as well as the kind and quality of
goods to be cleaned. White goods
are generally very easy to clean, but
colored articles require a much more
careful method of procedure. Al
most any preparation used for taking
out stains will injure colors, and Bilk
and woolen, or mixed goods are much
more liable to injury than the cot
tons and( linens. With some delicate
fabrics or colors, almost any prepara
tion will leave a discoloration worse
that the original stain, and of larger
proportions. Then, too, many women
are careless in applying the cleansers,
and make a bad job of anything they
undertake because of doing things in
a disorderly or slovenly way, with
poor material, or with soiled hands,
or by laying on anything, that of it
self, will stain; or, more likely than
all else, failing to use common sense
and good judgment in selection and
application. Even professional clean
ers do not always do their work well
because of using methods open to
question and of doing the work in a
slovenly, careless manner. For the
successtui removing of stains, more is
needed than simply to be "told how."
Some Apple Recipes
The fresh autumn crop of apples is
now just beginning to enter the mar
ket, and we give a few good, nutritious
and inexpensive ways of serving them
For Fried Apples. Core and peel
several large, tart apples; cut slices
right across the apples, making rings
about a quarter of an inch thick;
drop into cold water for a few min
utes, then dry and dip them in sugar
and fry quickly in hot butter. Some
prefer not to peel the apples, claim
ing that they are better flavored un
peeled. Apple Tapioca. Core and pare six
fully ripe apples; set these in a pud
ding dish; fill the hollow of each ap
ple with fine white sugar and stick
into each three cloves. Sprinkle
around the fruit six tablespoonfuls of
large pearl tapioca; squeeze a little
lemon juice on each apple, and pour
two cupfuls of cold water very gently
into the dish. This should be cooked
very slowly for an hour and a half,
when the tapioca will have formed a
delicate jelly all alout the apples;
servo lukewarm, not hot, with cream,
and it will be found perfectly whole
some for invalids as well as well peo
ple. Apple Snow. Dissolve half a box of
gelatine in a cup of cold water; pass
three heaping cupfuls of stewed ap
ples through a sieve, sweeten and
flavor with lemon juice and cinnamon
and mix with the jelly. Whip a pint
of sweet, rich cream and stir lightly
into a fruit. Heap this into a glass
dish and set it in the refrigerator until
ready to serve.
Apple Turnovers. Serve one to
each guest. Make a very rich, "short"
pastry dough, roll it out and cut into
squares about five inches wide; set
in the middle of each piece a large
pared and cored apple; drop into
each apple a niece of butter about as
big as a small hickorynut; fill up the
hole with sugar and put more around
the outside of the fruit. Into the
sugar stick two inches of cinnamon
and press three cloves into the flesh
of the apple. Lay a slice of lemon
on top of all this. Take up the four
corners of the pastry, pinch them in
to a knot over the .apple and let them
bake in a good, quick oven so that
the pastry may be well browned, but
give them time to get well done in
side. They may be eaten with or
without cream.

When He Quit Coffee
Life insurance companies will not
Insure a man suffering from heart
trouble. The reason is obvious.
This is a serious matter to the hus
band or father who Is solicitous for
the future of his dear ones. Often
the heart trouble is caused by an un
expected thing and can be corrected
if taken in time and properly treated.
A man in Colorado writes:
"I was a great coffee drinker for
many years, and was not aware of tho
Injurious effects of the habit till I
became a practical invalid, suffering
from heart troubje, indigestion and
nervousness to an extent that made
me wretchedly miserable myself and,
a nuisance to those who witnessed
my sufferings.
"I continued to drink Coffee, how.
ever, not suspecting that it was the
cause of my ill-health, till, on apply
ing for life insurance I was rejected
on account of the trouble with my;
heart. Then I became alarmed,
found that leaving off coffee helped;
me quickly, so I quit it altogether
and having been attracted by the ad
vertisements of Postum Food Coffee
I began Its use.
"The change in my condition was,
remarkable, and it was not long till
I was completely cured. All my ail
ments vanished. My digestion was;
completely restored, my nervousness
disappeared, and, most important oC
all, my heart steadied down and be

nation I was accepted by the life in
