Kilts vs. Trousers.
A Soot has wrlttem for the London
journals am argument ia favor of
wearing' kilts, especially la cold
weather. A faahtoaable physician .of
Londoa rapports his argument, aad
the Tailor aad Catter admits that
the streets woald be made more pic
turesqee, furthermore the kilt would
pat an ead to "baggy-kneed trousers."
A pair of trousers that bag at the
Ira see,, is-indeed a loathsome object
The question of wearing kilts is
not one of leg exposure to the cold
of winter, nor is -it one of compara
tive durability and economy in ma
terial. It is chiefy a question of
legs, remarks Boston Herald. The
Psalmist said of the Lord: "He
taketh not pleasure in the legs
of a man." Nevertheless, civilised
man, a vain thing, vainer than the
average woman, is conscious of hh
legs. They must be sculptured if the
kilt is to be donned. Thackeray's
marquis of Flarintosh appeared at
Parisian court balls in bis uniform oi
the Scotch archers or in his native
Glenlivat tartan, and he thought there
was no handsomer young nobleman;
but look at Doyle's picture of him,
and lo, he was a sight. We may 'all
be deceived in this respect. The
most bow-legged may fondly imagine
that his left at least is a poem. There
arc eminent statesmen, judges, phil
anthropists who. kilted, would appear
as inconsiderable beings, things of
naught, yet they may rise superior
to baggy trousers or even to those
worn at half-mast.

Berliners are congratulating them
selves on the gradual disappearance
of their second-class cabs and the
multiplication of auto-cabs. The latest,
count showed that of the cabs of all
kinds, 7,713 altogether, 503 were au-.
tomobiles. All of these are in such
great demand that their receipts often
rise to $15 a day, and never fall bekW
five dollars. They are allowed to'
charge seven cents more than ordi
nary cabs. The number of auto-omnibuses
was 947, as against 3,343
street cars. These ominbuses make
almost as good time as the auto-cabs.
Accidents rarely happen, largely ow

there are .14 of them, and they have
very little to do, their mere presence
making the drivers and chauffeurs

A Chicago woman says that It Is

(Copyright, by Alfred C Clark.)
A preacher who was a crank on
doctrine wearied his congregation by
constantly harping Jon baptism. A
brother that'longed for a rest handed
him a text he thought afe, "The way
of the transgressor is hard."
"Friends," said the preacher, "there
are three things suggested by this
scripture: First, the transgressor.
Second, his conversion. Third, his
baptism. We will pass -over the first
two and come at once to the third."
Many reasons why people should
trade at home rather than send their,
money away have been given, but sup
pose we pass them all by and come at
once to the one vital reason:
It is the right thing to do.
For after all the fundamental ques
tion in every transaction is whether
it is right or wrong. Not will I save
money, but is it just? Not is it more
convenient, but is it fair? Not
whether is it good business, but
whether it is good morals?
For you and I know, and all the
world is coming to know, that not
one dollar is ever saved or made by
unfair means that does not curse the
possessor. And a man may be as dis
honest in saving money as in getting
It is right to spend our money with
the home town and wrong to send it
away because we- are under- obliga
tions to the home town, but not to
the mail order house.
In the first place the country is un
der financial obligations to the town.
Of course the town is also indebted
to the country, but the town cannot
help but pay its debt, its very exist
ence does that. Hence we are merely
discussing the country side of the ob- 8
Don't Let the Catalog House Batter Down the Wall of Civil and Industrial
Solidity That Makes for the Safety ef Your Community Interests.
Find 200 acres of good land almost
anywhere that is 20 miles from town
and you can buy ft for $25 an acre.
The same land within ten miles will
bring $35. within five miles its value
is $60, within two miles $85 an acre.
Thus that town has increased the
land within a radius of ten miles an
average of $35 dollars an acre. As
that is about the age of country towns
generally, you may figure that a town,
as long as it is fairly prosperous, in
creases the land around it an average
of one dollar an acre every year.
Not considering staple articles like
cattle, hogs and grain which can be
shipped and sold anyway, the town as
a local market is worth at least $75
a year to the ordinary farmer.
For example: This year the peach
markets were so-glutted no ordinary
fruit would pay ,tbe express. Around
the little town in which the writer
lives most farmers have a few peach
trees. The 4,000 inhabitants bought
nearly every bushel In the vicinity at
from 40 cents to a dollar a bushel.
More than $4,000 was paid for peaches
within three weeks.
That was clear gain which must be
set over to the credit of the town.
Plums, cherries, early vegetables,
scores of little odds and ends, perish
able stuff that the farmer could not or
would not ship he turns into cash at
the home town.
So if a man owns 200 acres within
reach of town, he will receive $275 a
year direct cash value from that
town, none of which he would receive
from the mail order house.
To be sure, the town does not do
nate him that amount, the town was
not built for the purpose of philan
thropy, yet he receives an actual cash
benefit because the town is there; and
he is under actual financial obliga
tions to return that benefit by spend
ing his money at home.
It is not an obligation that the law
would recognize, but it is one that ap
peals to those independent, clean
hearted men of high honor who feel
that perfect honesty - demands that
when benefits are received from
stranger or brother, friend or foe,
benefits should be returned.
It is sometimes argued that the
town has forfeited its right to the
farmer's patronage by selling too high.
But a careful investigation will not
dear out that contention. Your town
is vunnsually prosperous if yon can
count more than four merchants who
have cleared $10,000 in the past ten
years. . That is a thousand dollars a
year for time aad interest on capital.
You can count five or six others who
have failed during that time, lost
everything. The January invoice will
not show a net gain of $500 per
business man. That means the or
dinary merchant and his capital are
not clearing $50 a month. This does
not indicate an unreasonable1 profit on

"Crown ef Japan' la a New
' - Vegetable.
In the dining-room the table is the
center of attraction. The mission
styles are the simplest in construc
tion; the Flemish or English oak are
elaborately carved. The round tabic
is the popular one of to-day, and the
choice of wood depends upon how
much one can pay. Mahogany Is handsome-
bnt it scratches easily, and is
therefore not so durable as oak. A
serving table is quite necessary, aad
may match the dining table.
Many people like a bright red din
ing-rc-dm, but a colonial yellow paper,
with white woodwork and Gobelin
blue hangings, is charming. There
are also many soft tapestry effects.
The color, however, should depend
largely on whether the room is light
The housekeeper who is looking for
something new in the vegetable line,
might try a Japanese vegetable known
as crown of Japan. It is cooked the
same as asparagus or cauliflower
about 30 minutes, or until tender.
Serve with the usual cream sauce
made of flour, butter and milk, and
seasoned to the taste. This vegetable
can be found at the best grocers' and
is 30 cents a pound.
Great care should be taken in keep
ing the kitchen sink clean, whether
new or old. -It should have a thor.
ough scrubbing down with boiling wa
ter after "every dishwashing. An oc
casional flushing with a solution of
soda or copperas will keep even the
oldest one clean, and free the pipea
and trap from grease. All wood
.should be removed from the sink.
Modern plumbers use iron instead of
lead pipe almost entirely.
Hamburger steak is appetizing
when served with peppers. Flatten
the meat out into a large oval shape
about an inch and a half thick, and
broil As an accompaniment to this,
quarter green peppers, remove seeds
and veins, and fry quickly in a little
butter. Serve this around the steak.
A round table is always effective. If
the color scheme is to be pinS, have
one of the new pierced silver baskets
with tall handle, fiUed'wlth pink roses.
This may be encircled with a wreath
of roses carelessly arranged. The table
should not le overcrowded with flow
ers and blossoms of heavy fragrance
are to be avoided. Two candelabra
with pink candles and rose-leaved silk
shades may be placed opposite each
other. When high decorations are
preferred a tall glass vase is used.
Some consider that cut glass is too
heavy for flowers.
How to Make Toffee.
Toffee is an almost unknown sweet
over here, but the small English chil
dren thrive on it and usually know
how to make it.
It's a quite different thing from our
butterscotch, which is jolly good, but
not as "jolly good" as toffee.
Here's a recipe for it:
Take three pounds of "coffee," or
"C" sugar, butter to the "amount of a
pound and a .quarter, with half a tea
spoonful of cream of tartar. First disr
solve the sugar in just as much cold
water as may be required for that pur
pose, then mix all the ingredients to
gether and boil them without stirring
the mixture until it will snap when
dropped into cold water. At this mo
ment remove it from the fire, add
eight or ten drops of lemon extract,
according to its strength, and pom
the mixture into well greased pans, to
he cut into squares as it cools.
Winter Vegetable Soup.
Cut one cup each of onion, carrot,
parsnip, potato and celery into half
inch dice, reserving the onions to fry
and the potatoes to boil by themselves.
Put one-fourth cup of butter or drip
pings in a stewpan or soup kettle and
when hot add the onions. After frying
them carefully until colored, but not
burned, add one tablespoon of flour,
and when well mixed pour on gradual
ly a pint of hot water. Add one tea
spoonful of salt, one saltspoon of
white pepper, one teaspoonful.of sugar,
one-fourth saltspoonful of cayenne
pepper, one slice of bread crust toast
ed very brown, vegetables (except the
potatoes), and enough boiling-water
to cover all. Let them simmer two
hours. Boil the potatoes ten minutes,
.drain and add them to the soup.
Hints on Serving Potatoes.
Nothing adds more to a meal than
a pretty or unusual way of serving the
ever useful potato. A plain potato
salad (which is always much better In
texture and flavor when the potatoes
are baked instead of boiled) seems far
more elaborate when served in the po
tato shells, and these are really pret
ty when properly prepared. For any
sort of stuffing, the potatoes should be
of uniform size, and large rather than
small, since the larger ones are easier
to handle; the novice had best practice
on a few first until the fingers become
deft in handling, for the first few are
apt to be spoiled- in- removing the In
terior or in refilling the shells.
One quart flour, three teasnoons
baking powder, little salt, butter the
sice .of an egg. Wet 'up with milk or
water to soft dough. Roll out. cut in
squares and bake: - For the dip: One
quart milk, two tablespoons of flour or
cornstarch, good sized piece of butter.
Boil two or three minutes. Split the
cakes and put into the dip. When
soaked through, put in a dish and pour
the dip over them. If your family is
small halve the quantity.
Prepare lemon jelly according to the
regular rule, adding prune juice in
stead of part of the required amount
of water. Pour the jelly into the
usual mold, putting in alternate layers
of cut, stewed prunes and nut meats.
Let each layer set before the next is
added. The jelly may be made in the
same way for individual sherbet cups,
and served with whipped cream on

is the best sample I have ever raised

may know it was a good sample when
I ten yon that I have already sold2,fM)

totaled 9.280 bushels and my oats
If yon remember I pointed out to
yon a half section lying just west of
our' house and joining my upper quar
ter on the south, which I said I should
have in order to make one of the best
farms in western Canada. I am very
glad to be able to tell yon that I now
own that half section. My ambition
now is to be able to market 2MM
bushels of wheat next year. If some
of those good, honest Hoosiers could
have been with me during the last two
weeks and could have seen the golden
grain rushing down the spout into my
dragon and then could have seen it in
great piles in my granaries, I feel sure
they would have been forced to
acknowledge there is no better farm
ing country in the world than this. I
may just say that I have done all my
farming with eight head of horses and
one hired man except during harvest
and threshing. This year I proved to
my neighbor that the Hoosiers, when
once "woke up." can raise grain equal
to the best Minnesota farmers. His
best yield was 42 bushels per acre,
so you see "old Indiana" is holding the
ribbon this year.
