though some things are not as fresh or as
nice aa they might be, having been held

Honey In the comb, fresh elder, maple

For those who cannot relish the packing
house product but still care for sausage.
It is quite possible to make It at home la
small quantities and without very much
work. Here Is a tested recipe: r
Mis six pounds, of .lean, fresh pork with
nair as mucn rat pork and grind well. Btlr
Into this mass of meat six tablespoonfuls
esch of salt and black pepper, twelve tea-
spoonfuls of powdered sage, two teaspoon

one grated nutmeg, pack In a stone crock.
Pour melted lard over the top of the meat

Harper's Bazaar offers the following
recipes for serving grape fruit: - Cut grape
fruit In halves and take out the core, loos
ening the pulp all around the side; cut red
and white grapes In halves, lengthwise, and
remove the seeds; put them all round ths
edge of the grapefruit In alternate colors.
Or, use Malaga grapes alone In the same
way, or merely seed them and pile them up
In ths hollow center with a little sugar and
new way of preparing this fruit eourse
la to fill the center with a small bean of
scraped maple sugar, which gives an un
usual and delicious flavor; still another way
is to drop a brandled cherry with a little
sugar Into each hoUow.
Following Is a tested recipe for a "white"
fruit caks: Put three-quarters of a pound
of fresh butter Into a basin and beat until
white and creamy; add by degrees three
quarters of. a pound of sifted powdered
sugar and beat this Mxture for a few
minutes; separate the yolks from the whites
of sight eggs, add yolks to butter and sugar
and beat again ten minutes; then stir in
half a pound of raisins, seeded and cut Into
halves; six ounces of glace cherries and
candled pineapple, alao cut In pieces; a
quarter of a pound of almonds (sweet),
blanched and baked to a golden brown; the
grated rind of a lemon, a salt spoonful of
cinnamon (ground) or a wlnaglaseful. of
brandy; whisk the whites of the sight eggs
tit a stiff broth and mix lightly with the
other Ingredients; have ready a pound of
Hour, sifted, and two teaspoonfula of bak
ing powder added to It; scatter II In, by
Jsgrees, stirring In one handful before ths

Carlos; for Oilcloth.
The careful housewife avoids the use of
either soap or ammonia in the water with
which her oilcloth Is cleaned. She knows
that their use will injure the material and
render the" colors dull and lifeless. Bho
also avoids a brush unless she owns a very
soft one, and relies upon clear, clean water
and soft Oannel cloths for her cleaning
When the oilcloth has been washed clean,
she rubs it dry with a fresh dry flannel
cloth and then polishes the entire surface
with, a rag, upon which there Is a very
llttlo llnsed oil, or some skimmed milk.
Ths milk does very satisfactory work, but
should be avoided In summer time, as it
will bring (Ilea
Some housekeepers think that oilcloth
keeps Its freshness and gives far better
service if treated to a coat of varnish
when It is first put down.
Several times a year ths average house
wife finds herself confronted with a
"stopped-up" sink. Amateur efforts at
opening the drain pipes are unavailing.
Trained skill must be called In and commo
tion and plumber's bills follow.
This Is one of the many Instances where
an ounce of prevention Is worth a pound of
cure. There are kitchens to whom the
plumber's visit Is almost as rare aa a blue
moon, and with a fairly modern. system of
drainage and a little care their number

Some Needs of Nebraska Towns
Bloonjington, the jcounty seat of Franklin
county, Nebraska, Is '' a' pfopseroHis, pushing,
growing town, situated In the Republican
valley at Its richest and most fertile point.
There corn Is king, and plentifully show
ers his glittering blessings' of gold upon
all who apply the mind and. hand of energy
and skill to the native soli. There alfalfa
grows In all its native grandeur, providing
almost a continuous harvest from .early
spring till late In the fall, transforming
mortgages into bank accounts and sod
houses Into finest mansions. There the
free and open hand of prosperity and
plenty lifts up the head of .poverty and
want, smoothes away the lines of distress, .
transplanting Instead American manhood
full of life, vigor and comfort.
While Bloomlngton is thus located and
thus blessed with the natural gifts from
nature, and notwithstanding the ordinary
commercial Interests are well represented
by enterprising business men, yet there is
room ior ma"y mor
With the present
sured outlook for two new railroads, one

both of.whlch will be completed is Biooto-'
lngton within the next twelve months, the
town Is destined to grow and will double
and triple Its present population very
quickly, and capital Invested there now will
grow and keep abreast with the town, -
This is not a boom proposition, but a
sure opportunity for a safe and paying in
vestment. Lund Is still within the reach of
the comparatively poor, and can be pur
chased on reasonable terms. Bloomlngton
needs 600 more industrious farmers and
stock raisers located on the rich and fertile
lands tributary thereto, all of whom should
1. It needs a live man to start an up-to-date
steam laundry. This would prove a
good puylng business from the start.
2. It needs an exclusive clothing store
Such an enterprise would meet the ap
proval and patronage of the general public
3. It needs a resident tailor. Good work
manship In this line would rapidly estab
lish a prosperous business.
4. It needs a Jeweler with a good stock
of goods. Success In this line Is assured to
the person first taking the field.
6. It needs a resident dressmaking es
tablishment This wou'.d be a money mak
ing venture from the start.
I It heeds a good shoemaker. A small
capital, with ordinary energy, would meet
7. It needs an up-to-date feed and sale
stable. For this business there Is no better
opening In the great Republican valley.
8. It needs a canning factory
truck farms In the state, are located within
a short drive from Bloomlngton. Such
an enterprise would be encouraged from the
start and would surely prosper.
9. It needs another lumber yard. The
large amount of lumber being used in town
and country in ' substantial Improvements
makes Bloomlngton a safe and desirable
point for a second yard.
It needs energetic men in the above, and
perhaps other avenues of trade and busi
ness, with large and small capital, who are
seeking Investment for their money, skill
and Industry, where the same will be safs
and sura of reasonable reward. To such
Bloomlngton speaks an encouraging word,
extends a helping hand and invites a close
study of Its present surroundings, condi
tions and prospects.
The village of Wood River, with its pop
ulation of 1,000, situated In the heart of tho
Wood river valley, made famous by lt
remarkable yields of corn, wheat, alfalfa,
eats, rye, sugar beets, garden seeds, hay,
fruit and vegetables, offers advantages to
the prospective settler, no matter whether
he wishes to engage In agricultural pur
suits or that of almost any other Industry,
Ths Village of Wood River has enjoyed a
remarkable growth during the past year,
and every Indication points to a very suc
cessful . new year. New buildings, resi
dences and improvements of this class are
being planned and contracted for. In some
rases the work Is to start as soon as the
weather permits. The people of this com
munity are loyal to their town and are
Interested In IM welfare. Inasmuch that
thsy heartily encourage new enterprises of
a commendable nature to locate here and
to make It worth while to them to Inves
tigate the advantages that this splendid
little city offers. The nerds, of this place
are along the line of manufacturing Indus
tries. An Incubator' factory would receive
the support and aid of the people and
could be made a very successful business.
A florist seuld- do well her. An alfalfa
meal factory could find no better location,
for thousands of tons of alfalfa are raised
adjacent to town. A 'wood working es
'abllahment making such articles as kit
chen cabinets, tables, etc., would succee.1
tiers. A lauudiy would be a paying vcu-
81.50 $3.00 $2.50
ture. A brick and Jile factory could se
cure ' excellent '.clay not -a-great distance
from' town and. be a profitable venture.
Hundreds of bushels of garden seeds are
raised here and -shipped to eastern seed
houses.' A seed' house here is needed. In
fact almost any kind of an enterprise
would be a good Investment. For In
stance, ' ltrst spring a nursery was estab
lished here., From the first it received the

Sutherland Is a town of 400 inhabitants
located on the main line of the Union Pa
cific, nineteen miles west of the county
seat. North Platte. It is next to North
Platte In Importance in Lincoln county,
and though a young town, is making a bet
ter showing than many towns of more age,
and during the last two years has about
doubted Its population. Owing to Its ex
ceptionally good sohool facilities many fam
ilies move In from the more remote sec
tions to spend ths winter and educate the
children. They come from twenty to thirty
miles tor this purpose. In the way of lo
cation Sutherland can desire nothing, for
the town nestles on the sunny side of ths
narrow range of bluffs that separate the
valleys of the North and South Platte
rlvers, surrounded by fertile farms where
ars raised sugar beets, alfalfa, corn, wheat,
potatoes and those other things that go to
make the wealth of the husbandman.

Irrigate the fertile tablelands to the south.
With the prorer Irrigation facilities for

wealth would mean much to the prosperity
of the town. More capital Is needed In
Sutherland and proper organization on the
part of the business people to properly pro
mote the prosperity of the place.
There la always a scarcity of available
rental properties and the population would
rapidly Increase were there t dwellings
equal to the demand. A mill, a canning
factory for tomatoes, peas and sweet forh,
complete Irrigation facilities, better train
service, fire protection and more p-ople
are among the chlvf needs of the town and
contiguous territory. It Is generally con
ceded that the town will have a population
of not les than 1,000 within the nezt three
year, and this will make a need for more
along the line of general merchandise and
other businesses. At present Sutherland

West Point, the ohlest town In ths Klk
horn valley, Is situated In the center of, ths
best agricultural region In the state of Ne
braska. Cuming county produces every
thing common" to the best farming sections
of the west and In great abundance. Coin,
as a matter of course. Is the principal
product and the soil appears to produce
this cereal earh succeeding year with un
diminished fertility. Years ago an effort
was made to convert West Point Into a
manufacturing center; the mugnlllcent
water power furnished by the Elkhorn
river at this point was deemed to be suffi
cient to Insure the future of the town In
this direction and high hopes were In
dulged in by the citizens, the prophecy
being freely made that West Point would
become the Lowell of the west. But, alas,
thest) di earns vanished away, and today
the Immense force of the water power of
the river is running to waste, a flour thill,
cement block factory and a brick yard
being all that the city can show In ths
way of manufactures.
In spite, however, of this non-use of the
natural advantages of the place, there does
not exist In the state a more prosperous
community than this. The surrounding
country Is In a high state of cultivation,
farmers are possesstd of large and commo
dious houses and barns, their farms, are
well stocked wlih blooded stock; they un
derstand and practice modern methods of
farming and their children - attend, the
colleges and university of the state. . The
city proper Is filled with .the privileges
which make life worth living In Nebraska,
Magnificent , school buildings, ' churches,
some of them ranking among the best In
the state; an educated, progressive,, high
class body of clergymen of all denomina
tions; enterprising, up-to-date merchants,
with large stocks; excellent newspapers,
and a law-abiding, thrifty population.
A large amount of available ' capital lies
idle here. The deposits In the three banks
of the city aggregate more than $600,000.
Much of this wealth could be made to
circulate In the community if the oppor
tunity was offered for investment in safe

here with every prospect of success. All
the raw material necessary for a plant
of this kind could be raised - successfully
here. Its cultivation opening up a field of
labor which would be welcomed by a
large floating population, dependent upon
dally work for a living.! A shoe factory
would find this an ideal location. Land can
be purchased for factory purposes for a
song, living is cheap, hundreds of families
of working people could be accommodated
in the city and the community generally
would welcome most heartily any move to
Install a manufacturing plant of any kind
In the town. Assistance In many ways
can be counted upon, prospective builders
of factories will receive every encourage
ment possible, both In the initial work .of
Installing manufacturing plants . and In
thedr maintenance and future success,

alcohol Would be profitable from the start.
Material In ths greatest abundance Is here

problem. Factories, in short, of any na
ture that could utilize the raw products
of this section would stand every chance
of permanent success. West Point stands
ready to welcome any proposition that
may be made looking to this end, and. her
people will do their utmost to encourage
and foster any new industry which may
establish itself hers.

Economy In Gas Engines.
Ths tests of American coal which Have
been made by the United States geological
survey will serve at least two good pur
noses. By determining the beat generating
powr and other qualities of Different grades
of fuel produced in this country they will
assist ths Intelligent buyer in learning how
to get the most for his money when pro
curing coal for a steam plant. They will
also emphasise ths economy which, under
certain conditions, Is attainable by using
gas engines. This latter possibility is at
present better appreciated in Europe than
in America. It is now a well established
fact that more power can be derived from
a ton of coal by converting it into gas and
exploding ths product behind a piston than
by employing It for ths development of
steam. The output In the former case. Is
about two and a half times as great as
In ths latter with small engines. New York
