You Can Get What You
Like Best at Market Now
Grapes are now on the Omaha
market for the first time this season.
Not California grapes, but Concord
grapes, the kind that make your teeth
black and rejoice your palate, the
kind that make lucious pies and fine
jelly and the kind that slip down your
throat so deliciously right from the
Apples, in spite of the lamentations
of the market men that the crop was
no good a-tall, are here in fair quan
tities and of good quality. Crab ap
ples are also plentiful but cost around
SO cents for a market basketful.
The new sweet potatoes are here,
fine looking specimens that are bring
ing 10 cents a pound from those who
aren't satisfied with the old crop.
Watermelons and cantaloupes are
still with us in great quantity,
splendid quality and at reasonable
prices. Honey dew melons are also
on hand and are almost as good as
their name sounds.
Blueberries are still very plentiful.
Peaches and pears are abundant and
fine in flavor and looks.
Cucumbers are plentiful and so are
those little ones that are intended for
pickling and eating in the winter time.
Preserving tomatoes are on the
.market. They are those little yellow
xeiiows, you Know, rtnu ineir uig
red sisters of the more common
variety are in the heydey of their ex
istence, a bit late but big, red, lucious
and cheap, or rather inexpensive, to
use the more elegant word.
Little onions are also procurable,
the kind that are intended to go into
the pickling jars and barrels for next
winter's appetite coaxing.
If you want to put up plum jelly
or butter, now is the time to get your
Beautify the Kitchen
Did you ever hear of a "chromatic
kitchen?" In New York there is a
certain keen witted woman architect
and interior decorator who designs
these kitchens, and she is earning a
snug professional income by so do
ing. The "chromatic kitchen, it may
be explained, is simply a well ar
ranged kitchen decorated according
to some striking and novel color
scheme. The young woman who
originated this scheme was not al
ways so prosperous. In fact, there
was a period in her early profes
sional life when she was on the verge
of giving up the whole business of
architecture and decoration and
taking up something less high sound
ing in name, but with a surer income
A Harmonious Scheme.
One day when passing through the
basement of a large department store
a display of blue and white enameled
ware caught her eye. She was struck
with an idea. With the blue and
white enameled ware as a basis, why
not work out a blue and white kitch
en, using blue and white tile back
of the kitchen range, blue and white
linoleum on the floor, and at the
windows white scrim curtains with
design in blue stencil, and so
throughout the kitchen?
An architect acquaintance who was
planning a country house for a
wealthy client permitted her to apply
her idea to the kitchen. The owner
was delighted when it was completed,
going so far as to declare that the
kitchen was the best room in her new
The young woman realizing that
she had made a discovery, deter
mined to follow it up. First of all she
made a thorough study of good
kitchen design, so that she was a
master of the efficient kitchen. Then
she looked into the question of kitch
en wares and was delighted to find
that nowadays enameled ware comes
in a wide range of colors. There are
soft mottled grays, two or three
shades of blue, a Nile green and an
olive green, a brown and an ame
thyst, an old ivory, a Concord purple
and a royal purple, and still others.
Sometimes there is a combination of
two colors, as in the case of blue and
white ware, which is white within
and blue without.
A Clever Combination.
Using these light cleaning wares
as a basis and matching them in tile
floor coverings and hangings she has
specialized in the "chromatic kitch
en" for the country house, and she
has done it exceedingly well. Some
times she uses a combination of
colors, as, for instance, pruple tinted
with old ivory tile and hangings. The
New York housewife loves novelty,
especially if it costs but little more
than some everyday humdrum ef
fect. This is true of the "chromatic
kitchen," for none of the materials
used by this clever woman are more
costly than the commonplace arti
cles. For instance, all this attractive
enameled ware cost little more than
the plainer lines usually sold in the
stores, and this is likewise true of
tile and linoleum. The secret was in
the happy thought of applying a har
monious color scheme to kitchen furnishings.
The Home Table
Nothing is better on a hot day than
cold food. It takes precedence over
all other kind of edibles on the sum
mer menu. A frozen dessert makes
a delicious and refreshing finish to
any meal, and while summer days last
should be .erved frequently. Several
suggestions for frozen desserts are

The dessert for summer must be
specially suited to the season. Dur
ing hot weather delicate sweets and
frozen desserts of various kinds are
sure to meet with favor. This de
licious dessert is simply made by first
preparing a vanilla custard, then
pouring it into little custard cups.
Decorate the top with whipped cream
and a teaspoonful of grape jelly.
Put two cups of milk into a sauce
pan with four tablespoonfuls of suear
and one teaspoonful of vanilla es
sence; let the milk steep until it is
well flavored. Bring; it to the point
of boiling, then strain into a bowl;
whisk five eggs well, and, when the
milk has cooled a little, stir in the
eggs and strain this mixture into a
bowl. Place the bowl in a saucepan
of boiling water over the fire; keep
stirring the custard (one way) until
it thickens, but on no account allow it
to reach the boiling point, as it will
instantly curdle and be full of lumps.
Take it off the fire and pour it into
(Tuesday Iced Bouillon).
An insanitary refrigerator is dan
gerous because it means disease and,
perhaps, worse. See that yours is
clean and sweet.
Keep the door closed, otherwise the
temperature rises and the ice melts
If the box is kept clean it is not
necessary to scald it out, but it is a
wise precaution to do this occasion
ally. Remember that ice is more apt
to be dirty, so it is wise to watch the
receptacle for the ice, that there be
no leaves or anything collected there
to decay or to clog the pipe. This
pipe or the pan beneath should never
be allowed to get slimy, as slime is
a danger signal.
Once a week wash the walls, sides,
shelves and every corner with cold
water, borax and any sweet, pure
soap; rinse with clear water and wipe
dry. The shelves may be taken out
and scalded, but must be chilled and
wiped dry before they arc returned.
If anything is spilled, wipe it up at
once, and be sure each day that there
are no refuse bits of food or berries
It is bst to keep everything cov
ered; it is imperative that milk and
butter should always be covered, and,
if possible, kept in a separate com
partment. Do not keep food too long, to
spoil and sour, and thus scent up the
icebox. Philadelphia Ledger.
Put one cup of oatmeal into one
pint of boiling milk with one small '-'
tablespoonful of butter. Let this
stand one hour, then add one-half cup
of sugar, one-half of a yeast cake dis
solved in one-half cup of lukewarm
water and one cup of flour. Let this -.r
stand over night. In the morning
make it into two loaves. Put it into
pans to rise (about two or three
hours). Then bake in a moderate oven
for three-quarters of an hour. This
is an especially wholesome bread and ,,;

Canteloupe with Raspberry Centers.
Cover the raspberries with pow-"'"

just before serving time. Fill each1"'
half canteloupe with the glistening,' '

of the berries.
