together, stirring for two minutes;
then add five or six slightly beaten
eggs with half a teaspoonful pf salt
and a pinch of pepper, and cook as
scrambled eggs.
A nice way to use egg on toast is
to prepare six slices of milk toast,
have the eggs slightly under-done,
and sprinkled with four tablespoon
fuls of grated cheese, then pour the
eggs and cheese over the toast, set
in the oven to heat through the
cheese, and serve. Or, the egg may
be poured over the toast, then the
cheese grated over the top. They
should be set in an oven until the
cheese melts, and the eggs are done.
Query Box
Mrs. P. W. It is said that any
firin-meated fruits may be canned
without cooking by using new jars,
antisoptically clean, packing the jars
as full of fruit as possible, and fill
with pure cold water, 'seal, and put
into a darjc closet. The water is best
let to flow into the jar from a hyd
rant, but any way, it must fill all
air spaces and .be "running over"
when the top is screwed down. It
would be best to experiment with a
few jars.
Mrs. L. The name of the dish
is spelled correctly "cole" slaw.
The word, .cole, is thd name given
several species of the cabbage family
of which the slaw is made. ' "Cold"
slaw is incorrect.
L. S. S. Vinegar that is very
strong should not be used for salad
dressing, as it kills the delicate
flavor, eating the tender leaves and
pickling the other ingredients. Tar
ragon vinegar or lemon juice is pre
ferred. ' V. R. Tarragon vinegar Is made
by wringing the buds , and leaves
from the larger branches and stalks
of the plant, just before it blooms,
bruising the leaves. Put the tarra
v gon Into small stone jars, cover, with
" good vinegar and let stand for sev
eral months; strain, and bottle the
vinegar, keeping it tightly corked.

The Ply Nuisance
Our weather in the north has been
so cool that tho house fly has not
put in its appearance in the usual
number, but even one is a nuisance
and menace, and strict watch should
be kept that the number does not in
crease. Try to have screen wire at
the openings, and do not let foods
lie about; keep -the door yards free
from anything that will attract them,
and wage a war of extermination
from now on. "
"Best is best, and best will ever
live." When a person feels this way
about Postum they are glad to give
testimony for the benefit of others.
A school teacher down in Missis
'sippi says: "I had been a coffee
drinker since my childhood, and the
last few years it had injured me se
riously. "One cup of coffee taken at break
fast would cause me to become so
nervous that I could scarcely go
through with the day's duties, and
thiB nervousness was often accom
panied by deep depression of spirits
and heart palpitation.
"I am a teacher by profession, and
when under the influence of coffee
had to struggle against crossness
-when in the school room,
"When talking this over with my
physician, he suggested that I try
Postum, so I purchased a package
and made it carefully according to
directions; found it excellent of fla
vor, and nourishing.
"In a short time I noticed very
gratifying effects. My nervousness
disappeared, I was not irritated by
my pupils, life seemed full of sun
shine, and my heart troubled me no
"I attribute my change in health
and spirits to Postum alone."
