Substitute (or Capers.
Nasturtium seed are an excellent
substitute for capers when added to
sauce, so it it seems a pity that we do
not make more use of them for there
is hardly a garden or even a city yard
where they do not show their glowing
gold and brown faces. The keeping is
very easily accomplished, for all you
need do is to gather them when ripe
andput them in a jar with white
vinegar; no spices are needed nor need
the vinegar tfe even bottled.
In Europe there is a favorite pickle
which is seldom, if ever, seen here,
made of apples and onions, a combi

would like to try it.

wine porcelain jug. There was no
A great deal of guessing was done
in an attempt to give an origin to the
cave. Probably, however, it was used
as a cellar when the Redick land was
a farm.
Poison Drinker is
New Human Marvel
Richard Leroy of Kansas Cuy
owes an explanation to doctors and
Thursday night in South Omaha he
drank enough bichloride of mercury
to kill an ordinary man. Then he
walked several blocks to the polite
station and told what he had done.
Doctors examined him and said he
would surely die. Hoping against all
the evidences, physicians gave him
first aid treatment and rushed him to
the South Omaha hospital.
In the morning he regained con
sciousness and the prediction is now
that he will live.
