0 SERVE CODFISH
FOUR RECIPES FOR DELICIOUS
Left-Over Portions May Be Utilized in
Patties Prepared a La Mode
Cooked with Either Maca
roni or Spaghetti.
Codfish a La Mode. Take a large
cupful of salt codfish that has been
boiled and finely shredded, add a gill
of vinegar, two tablespoons of melted
butter, a saltspoon of black pepper, the
juice of half a lemon, a little minced
parsley, and one egg well beaten.
Form in balls with the hand in oval
shape, and roll in egg and cracker
crumbs. Fry in hot fat and serve
with bechamel sauce.
Codfish Patties. If you have any
creamed codfish remaining from break
fast it can be utilized in this way.
Make some tiny puff paste shells, ba
king them in a quick oven; when cold'
fill with the creamed codfish, lightly
dusting with grated nutmeg; cover the
top of each shell with a teaspoonful of
whipped cream, lightly salted, and
return for an instant to a hot oven.
Serve with fried parsley and thin
slices of lemon.
Timbale of Codfish. Break in short
lengths either macaroni or spaghetti,
and boil in salted water until tender;
dress it with cheese and melted but
ter according to taste and add one well
beaten egg. Butter and bread crumb
a plain mold and when the macaroni is
nearly cold fill the mold with it, press
ing it well down and leaving a hollow
in the center, which should be filled
with codfish prepared as follows:
Freshen two good sized pieces of cod
fish by changing the water frequently
In which it is soaked, then boil for
20 minutes, putting it on in cold wa
ter. Remove from the fire, and shred
it finely with a silver fork, adding a
small cupful of cream, a tablespoon
of melted butter, a dash of cayenne
and a teaspoon of onion juice. Cover
the top of the mold with a layer of
macaroni and bake in a moderate oven
for half an hour; turn from the mold
and serve garnished with blanched;
Codfish Chowder. Fry six slices of,
fat pork crisp in the bottom of the,
pot in which you are to make your.
chowder; take them out and chop
them in small pieces, putting them
back in the pot with their own gravy
Cover this with a layer of shredded
salt codfish that has been freshened
in cold water, and continue with lay
ers of minced onions, sliced potatoes.
split crackers, tomatoes and parsley;
sprinkle with summer savory, cayenne
pepper and celery salL Alternate
these layers until the pot is three-quarters
full. Pour in enough cold water
to partly cover the ingredients and
stew gently for one hour, watching
that the water dues not boil away.
When the chowder is thoroughly
cooked turn it into the tureen, adding
a cupful of rich milk, and serve hot
with toasted bread fingers.
Oranges for the Lunch Box.
Many tourists enjoy putting up a
dainty luncheon at home, which may
be partaken of whenever liked. In
such a box a Kttle corner filled with
oranges is sure to be most appreciat
ed. Select large navel oranges, free
from skin and all the bitter white
which sometimes clings to the fruit.
and separate into sections. If the or
ange sections are long, cut them half
through in two different places with
a sharp knife, or if the sections are
short cut them' only in the center.
Pack them at once, and very closely,
in paraffin paper in either a tin crack
er box or a pasteboard box. The
juice will not run out if the fruit is
carefully handled, and a section will
quench thirst much more effectively
than water, and they can be taken out
of the box without soiling the gloves.
For Timing Eggs.'
An egg alarm is one of the latest
additions to the kitchen equipment. It
is a German invention, at . least it
comes to us from that country, and
is intended to act as a reminder to the
cook when the eggs are done. It is
made of an oblong piece of porcelain
fitted in the center with a clock dial
and an alarm bell. The dial is marked
off into minute sections up to the num
ber of five. When the eggs are put
into the water the alarm is set for
two, three, four or five minutes and
the cook need not be bothered with
watching the clock to see that the eggs
do not boil too hard. When the time
is up the bell rings sharply as a signal
that the eggs are done just right.
Making Mint Sauce.
For a good, simple way of making
old-fashioned mint sauce use one large
tablespoonful of chopped mint, three
fourths of a cup of vinegar and two
tablespoonfuls of sugar. Mix the three
together and let them stand an hour
then serve. Delmonico's rule for mint
sauce differs from any other rule. It
alls for one-quarter of a bunch of
finely-minced mint leaves, half a cup
ful of water, half a cupful of broth or
consomme, four tablespoonfuls of vin
egar, a table3poonful of salt and half
an ounce of sugar. Mix together and
erve In a sauce bowl.
Good Fish Salad.
Soak twq big salt herring in water
over night. Then clean fish of all
bones and skin and chop fine. Chop
six or seven boiled potatoes and five
boiled red beets and two big onions.
Mix all together with pepper and
enough vinegar to soften the mixture.
Pre& hard in molds and when shaped
turn out on a flat plate. Chop the
whites and yolks of three hard boiled
eggs separately. Then decorate the
top with alternate rows of whites,
yolks and beets.
RETURN OF REGULARS TO
POSTS NOT ALWAYS BEST
Curious Instances Where Teams Played
Winning Ball with Subs in
Will the return of Flick and Turner
to Cleveland"s lineup increase the.
team's winning percentage? '
The natural answer is a quick and.
emphatic "Yes." But wait a moment,
A little while ago the Yankees were
in the lead of the American league
race and were winning about two
games out of every three. Ball was
playing short for the New York team,
Elberfeld was in the hospital.
"Wait till 'Scrappy' returns, and
we'll win them all," said some of the
Yankee- players. Well, "Scrappy"
.came back with all his old-time fire
and enthusiasm, and the Yankees im
mediately began to lose. -
The White Sox, with a patched-up
infield, were recently defeating every
thing in sight. They lost but one game
in a stretch of 18.
We'll get Isbell," said Fielder
Jones, "and then we can't lost evetf
one In 18." Isbell, brilliant player.
great hitter, fine fielder, man of
brains, came, and the White Sox
promptly tumbled out of first place
and into fourth.
Probably that it is usually .fatal to
break up a winning team. It takes
time to get the new men accustomed
to all the signals their predecessors
had become thoroughly accustomed
Flick and Turner will add batting,
fielding and base running ability to
the Naps, but it is, too much to expect
that their acquisition will bring a
larger percentage of victories for a
few days at least.
DANE RICHEST OF FIGHTERS
Battling Nelson Reputed to Be Worth
Battling Nelson the other day, at
San Francisco, won the title of light
weight pugilist of the world from the
man who defeated him at Goldfield,
Nev., almost two years ago. He
knocked out Joe Gans in the seven

but the rest of the fighting brigade
only wish they could inherit that kind
of foolishness which would add to
their ring record and bank accounts.
Still, when it comes down to solid
facts. Nelson has no one to thank for
his championship hpnors. Nobody
took his beatings and no one admin
istered the defeats but himself.
To date Nelson has acquired all of
the choice real estate in Hegewisch,
now known as Burnham. Besides this,
he recently purchased some vineyard
property in California.
Nelson's biggest earnings for one
fight was at the time he fought Gans
at Goldfield, Nevada, September 3,
1906, when he received for his end
$22,500. Since then he has been
kept busily engaged in coast battles
and exhibitions. His recent battle
with Gans netted the Dane close to
From now on, however, they will all
have to come and see the Dane. The
championship title is worth thousands.
The Dane will be the biggest card
there is on the road, and he can well
afford to remain idle unless the pro
moters come across.

WAS ONLY RED BLOOD.
And Three-Year-Old Had Been Told
That it Was Blue.
Three-year-old Allan had a very aris
tocratic grandma, who prided herself
on her own and her husband's blue-
blooded ancestry. She told him heroic
deeds of them and warned him from
ever playing with boys of low degree.
One day Allan came screaming up
stairs to his mamma and grandma,
holding his hand up covered with
blood, where he had cut his little
finger. They were both greatly
alarmed, as he was a child who rarely
cried or complained when hurt. Mam
ma washed the blood off and, exam
ining the cut, said:
"Why, dear, it's not so very bad.
Does it hurt you so much?"
"I'm not cryin' 'cause it hurts," he
said, "but 'cause it's only red blood,
and grandma said I had blue." Phila
For and Against.
A Philadelphia lawyer, retained as
counsel for the defense in a murder
trial, tells of the difficulties in getting
together a Jury.
"Counsel were endeavoring," says
this lawyer, "to elicit from the various
prospective jurors their views con
cerning the death penalty.
"One man to whom the question was
put, 'Are you against the infliction of
the death penalty?' replied, 'No, sir.'
" 'What is your business?" he waa
asked. 1 am a butcher,' he replied.
"When the same question was put
to the- next man he answered that he
was against the death penalty.
"'What is your business?'
" 'Life insurance,' said he."
Where the Urchin Scored.
The bnsy man stopped before an
office bnilding and leaned from his
carriage. At the same moment an
ambitions urchin ran forward and
piped: "Hey, mister, kin I hold yet
horse?" "No, you can't!" snapped
the busy man. "Won't charge y
much," insisted the urchin. "I don't
care about the charge." impatiently
responded the man, throwing a blan
ket over his bony steed. "My horse
win not run away." "Gee, mister, 1
didn't think he'd run away!" "No?"
"No, I thought he might fall down."
"Do yon think these trusts and mer
gers have put the great capitalists on
terms of friendship?"

The Republicans evidently believe
that the constitution does not count
for much nowadays, for the word con
stitution does not appear in the
speeches of Senator Lodge, or Mr. Bur
ton, made at the Republican conven
tion, and only one reference to that in
strument is made in the platform. This
reference occurs in the resolution re
lating to the enforcement of the thir
teenth, fourteenth apd fifteenth amend
ments. When Mr. Taft addresses the Pros

The Vital Point.
Jndge Gillette was one of the most
dignified of old-fashioned jurists. One
day he was holding court at a county-
seat in a rather out-of-the-main-road
county, when a violent hubbub in the
hallway interrupted proceedings in the
court-room. After quieting the dis
turbance, the sheriff returned to report
to the juige. "It was two men fight
ing," explained the official. "Danny
Flannigan and Jake Jenkins, tough
characters about town: I have put
them under arrest." And he waited,
expecting that the magistrate would
order both offenders to be brought in
to his presence and committed for con
tempt. What was the sheriff's astonishment,
therefore, when the judge beckoned
him to the desk, and bending down,
said in a confidential whi3per:

A Difficult Lesson.
"It is next to impossible for a man
to teach a pretty gfrl how to whistle,"
said a musician who is a good whis
tler. "How is that?" he was asked.
"Well, providing she is not your
wife or sister, when a pretty girl gets
her lips properly puckered she usually
looks so bewitchingly tempting that he
kisses her, and the consequence is she
doesn't have a chance to blow a note.
ITCHING HUMOR ON BOY
His Hands Were a, Solid Mass, and
Disease Spread All Over Body
Cured in 4 Days By Cuticura.
"One day we noticed that our little
boy was all broken out with itching
sores. We first noticed it on his little
hands. His hands were not as bad
then, and we didn't think anything
serious would result. But the next day
we heard of the Cuticura Remedies
being so good for itching sores. By
this time the disease had spread all
over his body, and his hands were
nothing but a solid mass of this itch
ing disease. I purchased a box of Cuti
cura Soap and one box of Cuticura
Ointment, and that night I took the
Cuticura Soap and lukewarm water
and washed him well. Then I dried
him and took the Cuticura Ointment
and anointed him with it- I did this
very evening and in four nights he
waa entirely cured. Mrs. Frank Don
