Hard Crystals in Jelly
Many housewives complain of hard
particles, like glass forming in their
jelly. One cause of this is hard boil
ing. When the syrup boils rapidly,
so that portions are thrown up on1
the aides of the kettle, they will form
crystals, and if theso are 'stirred back
into the jelly, they will cause more
crystals to form. Another cause is
too much sugar. When the fruit it
self is sweet, the sugar added snould
be less than the amount of juice by
measure. In very hot, dry weather
the fruit contains more sugar than
whon the season is wet and cold.
When the fruit is thus rendered more
sugary, three-quarters of a pint of
sugar to a pint of Juice is enough.

The difference between dough and
batter is that batter is made thin
enough to pour or drop when lifted,
while a dough is made stiff enough
to handle and mold. Drop batter is
made' of two parts flour, one part 11-'
iiuld, with other ingredients as su
gar, salt, eggs, etc., .as liked. This
:an be dropped from a spoon. "Pour
batter" is the same, but equal parts
of liquid and' flour, to run frbm
spoon, or Erdm the dhm into pan.
Griddle cakes are "poiuSbatler" ;
dumplings are drop batter. . Pour
batters are made much lighter by
beating in eggs; or using baking pow
der, or" soda and sour milk.
Vegetables f6r Canning

tomatoes, hut in this case, the cook

Of ail the dispositions and habiis
which lead to political prosperity, re
ligion and morality are indispensable
supports. In vain would that man
claim the tribute of patriotism who
should labor to subvert these great
jOillars of human happiness these
firmest props of the duties of men
nd citizens. The mere politician,
equally with the pious man, oXight to
respect and to cherish them. A vol
ume could not trace all their connect
tions with private and public felicity.
Let it be simply asked, where Is
the security for property, for impu
tation, for llfer if. the sense of re
ligious obligation desert the oaths
which are the instruments of inves
tigation in courts of- justice? And
let. us,.iwlth. cuthpn indulge the sup
position mat moraniy, can do main

, morality, f can prevail in exclusion of
rUglpu;s principles.
It is -substantially true that virtu,e
or morality is a necessary0 spring of
'popular government. The rule, in-
2 ded, extends with more or less force
1 to every species of free government.

GRIXlClSlft& THE "btnJRCfi
Criticism" of the churches is current
ly popular. The ' criticisms often den
stroy eactt other; One: class1 of critics
i charges that the Churches 'are con
cerned only-' about personal salva
tion and that they' stress other-
worldliness to' the neglect of condi
tions in the present vale of tears. An-
'other class accuses the churches of
having1 'neglected- their first ' mission
and"of " dovoting- their efforts too
muCh: to social amelioration. But
.the fact' is'thaMhe church' is better
than e'vCtf 'in ita'hfotdry attempting to
-perform both function's Thevchtlrch'
at one' time concerned-'Itself 'dhicfly
about personal salvation; An occa
sional church at present concentrates
its efforts on social service. But the
churches in general' are presenting
personal alvatioji and also-seeking
,to bring the "kingdom of heaven" to
this earjth., The program adopted by
the Federal, Council of the Churches
of Christ in Ameriga, representing
thirty of, the principal PrQtestant de
nominations, Is one, of the most coi
crete, and lpfty platforms of social
betterment , ever promulgated. Yet
the revival services held in every
nook of tjie country indicate that the
question pi" personal salvation is not
being ignored. . , . . . ,
It is easy to find, excuses for ,riot at
tending church. But mapsr of.them are
not sincerely urged. The chief one abou t
the. number, of men who use Church
.activity as a cloak for concealing
rascality, will not bear analyses, une
migh,t as well gp back on the.coifi of
dhe realm because it is so often coun
terfeited. The excuse of dress is
based on personal pride. There are
,few churches in America where any
body is unwelcome because... of his
poverty, although there are many
self-conscious individuals' who. have
-vainly imagined slights. St. Louis
