TO SERVE WITH TEA
FRUIT CAKE AS IT SHOULD BE
Full Directions for the Compounding
of Delicacy That Will Be Highly
Appreciated by the Visit
ors of the Afternoon.
Use three-fourths of a pound of but
ter, three-fourths of a pound of brown
pint of molasses,
lVs pounds of
pound of citron,
of figs, one-fourth
Itound of almonds,
three-fourths of a
glass of wine.
three-fourths of a glass of brandy and
14 ounces of flour.
One pound of butter, one pound of
sugar, one pound of flour. 12 eggs, one-.
half gill of brandy, one nutmeg, one-.
Iialf teaspoon of cloves, two teaspoons,
of cinnamon. 14 pounds of raisins.'
1 pounds of currants, one pound of
citron. Chop part of the raisins fine.
Beat the butter and sugar to a cream,
whisk the eggs until thick and add
them by degrees. Then add the brandy
and flour with the spice, and lastly the
fruit. Mix all well together. Paper
your pans and put in the mixture;
spread it smooth with a knife and
bake in moderate oven four hours, says
the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Take one cup of butter, 1 cups of
brown sugar, one-half cup of sour
cream, two cups of flour., three eggs,
one pound of seeded raisins, one-half
pound of currants, one-fourth pound
of citron, one teaspoonful of soil a.
same of cinnamon, one-half nutmeg,
one-half teaspoonful of cloves; chop
the raisins, slice the citron very thin
and have the currants all washed be
forehand; set the butter where it will
get soft, but not melt; beat the eggs
until the whites and yolks are well
mixed, then add the sugar and beat
until very light. Add butter and mix
thoroughly; measure the flour, dredge
the fruit with one-fourth of it and mix
all the fruit and spices together. Dis
solve soda in a teaspoonful of warm
water and add to the cream; then add
the cream to the butter, sugar and
eggs: adtl the flour, mix well, mix the
fruit in thoroughly, last. This makes
one large or two small loaves, and will
keep a year.
eigh one pound of butter, one
pound of light brown sugar, one
pound and two punces of flour, two
IHjunds of dried currants, two pounds
of ordinary seeded raisins, two
pounds of sultanas and 1V4 pounds of
citron cut into strips. ; Measure one

two tablespoons of ground cinnamon,
one each of mace, cloves and allspice.
Grate two nutmegs. Break a sufficient
number of eggs to fill a pint measure.
Rub the butter and sugar together, but
do not beat them. Whip the eggs un
til perfectly smooth and thick and stir
them with the cream into the butter

and working until perfectly smooth.
Mix the flour with the spices and
the fruits until they are evenly dis
tributed; then add them to the mix
ture and stir lightly together. Add
one tablespoon of orange-flower water
and beat the whole vigorously. Bake
in a moderate oven for three hours.
Do not turn out of the pan until cold;
then rub lightly with flour and wipe
off with a dry cloth and store away
until needed. This cake is improved
by age, and many persons make them
a year ahead of time.

Hint for Using Paraffin.
When using paraffin for sealing all
serious and often fatal accidents as
well as the disagreeable smoke in the
house can be avoided if the dish con
taining the paraffin is placed in a large
vessel containing hot water. When
the paraffin is melted remove from the
stove and the water will keep the wax
hot until all sealing is done.
Soda to Clean Pots.
When anything has been cooked in
a pan and stuck to it. making the Job
of washing it hard and tedious, fill the
pot with boiling water and add a tea
spoonful of salsoda. Let the water
stand in the kettle until the next dish
vashing and it will be easy to clean.
Keep the Water Boiling. .
In steaming or boiling a pudding,
as the water boils away, add more
boiliug water. If colder water is
added, for a short time at least, the
foodstuff will not be boiling, and this
state of affairs may prove disastrous

was getting worse. I was so worn out
watching and caring for him night and
day that I almost felt sure the disease
was incurable. But finally reading of
the good results of the Cuticura Rem
edies, I determined to try them. I
can truthfully say I was more than
surprised, for I bought only a dollar

A woman who is sick and suffering, and won't at least
try a medicine which has the record of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, is to blame for her own wretched
There are literally hundreds of thousands of women ia
the United States who have been benefited by this famous
old remedy, which was produced from roots and herbs over
thirty years ago by a woman to relieve woman's suffering.
Read what these women say :
Camden, IT. J. - It Is with pleasure that I send my tetfan
xual for Lydia, E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, hoping ft
may induce other suffering women to avail themselves of too
benefit of this valuable remedy.
I suffered from pains in my back and aide, sick headaches,
no appetite, was tired and nervous all the time, and so weak I
could hardly stand. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pond
made me a well woman and this valuable medirine shall
always have my praise." Mrs. W. P. Valentine, OOIS Lincous
Ave., Camden, K. 7.
Erie, Pa.-" I suffered for five years from female troubles, and
at last was almost helpless. I tried three doctors but they did
me no good. My sister advised me to try Lydia E. Prakhaaa's
egetable Compound, and it has made me weQ and strong-.
hope all suffering women will just give Lydia K. Pink ham's
Vegetable Compound a trial, for it is worth its weight in gold."
Mrs. J. P. Endlich, K. F. I). 7, Erie, Pa.
Since we guarantee that all testimonials which we pub
lish are genuine, is it not fair to suppose that if Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had the virtue to help
these women it will help any other woman who is suffcr
, ing from the same trouble.
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. No sick' woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousands of cures to its credit. I

loi oV you do not understand, write to Mrs.
Pinkham at Lynn, Mass for her advice it is
