THE BEK: OMAHA. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27. 1917. 26 )lUlliflciv War-Time Fashion Revivals. U'h;i- mint of our friends arc lone ing to slip into the comfortable look ing feminalls which mark the latest advance in garments iur others are harking back to the days of our grandmothers for inspiration in clothing, remaps your gianu ninthrr told vou how, when they were young, a new calico dress was considered better than silk and was almost as expensive, uressea m a full skirt of fancy printed calico the women of pioneer times attended all sorts of functions from weddings to funerals. r.inirhain has become the desidera tum of every well-dressed modem woman and tales are told and vouched for, too, by reliable people, of ging ham dresses made in Omaha for the trifling sum of Just on the heels ot the glorified gingnam comes uic revival of old-fashioned organdie. All sorts of organdie frocks are being shown ready made or being con-strui-tit hv nur fashionable modistes. As some one jocularly remarked, "Th simnle tub frocks of 1917, which cannot be tubbed, cost all the Let- way from a hundred up. .Hand emDroioery ana rcai in. of marvelous value are combined with the simple organdie to make these ex pensive lrocks. Mrs. Lnaries nouniic has a pretty white embroidered one, Mrs. John L. Kennedy has one with one with real lace on it and Mrs. George Braudeis has been seen in a perfectly charming model. i Another ancient fashion revival, really more ancient than ginghams or organdies is the steel mirror. Was it-the Egyptian or the Roman matrons who gazed at their fair reflections in mirrors of polished metal? You'vi no doubt read that these were remarkably clear reflectors and that archaeolo gists who discover them in ruins say they are iar superior to moaern glass. The story is that the metal mirror came from China, where dainty Chin ese ladies used themwitn a coat 01 white metal over the surface to give re flection a proper color. Be that as it may, these metal mirrors are being shown now in small sizes under the rtUirnisi-H name of trench mirrors. Manv young women are said to be purchasing these small, compact mir rors for presentations to their depart ing soldier boys. ENGAGEMENT ' ANNOUNCED AT FAMILY DINNER. Guess Weight of Cakes.

This article is based on the canning school instruc tion and government pamphlets. The cold pack method, which owes its name to the fact that the jars are packed with cold material, has been popularized recently through the boys' and girls' canning clubs which the government is promoting in rural districts. The method is highly en dorsed by the government because 1. Product better Texture Flavor 2. Surest way to can vegetables. 3. Safest way no preservatives. 4. Saves time. 5. Takes drudgery out of canning. There is no doubt about the su perior appearance and quality of toods canned by tins method. The results of the girls' and boys' can ning club work have been products rivaling in appearance the superior uranns in commercially canned goods. The saving of drudeerv is uue io uie iact mat much ot the work over a hot stove is avoided, as will be brought out in the general instructions. The main steps in the cold nack process are as follows: 1. Select hrm. fresh products. The condition of the food is of great im portance, for it is impossible to turn out good canned goods from inferior fresh material. The vegetables should be in their prime and as fresh from the field as possible. This latter con dition is a hard one to meet in the city, unless one is supplied direct from the farm or noes to market early on the day that the canning is to be done. At any rate, the food should always be canned the day when purchased. i. Wash. 3. Scald or blanch. This third stcn is the first departure from the older methods of canning. "Scaldine" is self-explanatory; "blanching" means steaming or boiling for few min utes. The purposes of blanching are to eliminate acids and acrid flavors. 'to reduce bulk and to start the flow of the coloring matter, which flow is later checked by the cold dip, thus making a bright colored product in Time table for cold pack canning process: Kind of vegetable. lllanchlnt.

Tomatoes Si-alil ; in'ii llie end. Scalding accomplishes the same results except that the milk is not materially lessened. In addition scalding loosens the skins. 4. Cold dip. To cold dip. plunge the blanched food into a large kettle of cold water for one or two minutes. The purposes of cold dipping are to make the vegetable tinner and of better texture, and to set the color. 5. Remove skins, in some cases. 6. Pack in sterilized jars. 7. Pour on boiling water to one fourth inch of top of jar. 8. Add oik teaspoon salt to one quart. 9. Put on rubber, cover and partly seal. If Mason jars arc used, the cover should he screwed on until it just catches. If the thumb and little ringer are used for the tightening there will be no danger of screwing too tight. If a spring top jar is used the top wire should be put in place, but the catch or lower wire should be left up. 10. Process. To process set in a large vessel on a false bottom and cover with water two inches over the lops of the jars and bring to boil, keeping the jars in water as long as time table attached calls for. 11. Remove and seal tight imme diately. 12. Store ill a cool dark place. ' Large vessels should be used, for they save time and labor. For Blanching A wire basket or a piece of cheesecloth may be used. The basket is more easily handled. For Processing A wash boiler with Pio.eM-li.u 1 4 home - hour. 1 1 hour. I l, hours. hom. - hum ll Co-Operation.

Old Glory Bread Mrs. George M. Revnolds. 1444 Lake Shore drive, Chicago, is the first woman of the Illinois division of the woman's committee, National Council of Defense, to respond in a practical way to the plea received yesterday from Herbert C. Hoover, lanuiiat ioou administrator at wasn ngton. ' Mr. Hoover stated that to meet the need for wheat for the allies the American consumption must be cut down by the substitution of other cereals. Mrs. Reynolds, patriotically inclined, sought the woman's defense committee and obtained a recipe for Old Glory bread, which she then tested out in her own kitchen, don ning a professional looking white apron and working with a will. "Bread is a hobby of mine," said Mrs. Reynolds, "a W I think there is nothing so good as home made bread. We have always had three kinds in our bread box and now we shall have Old Glory.' " . the recipe for Old Glory, which being much used in France at pres ent, toiiows; 1 cup rye flour, 3 cups whole wheat flour, 8 cups white flour, 4 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons shortening, 1 yeast cake. In response also to Mr. Hoover's message Miss Isabel Bevicr, chair man of the conservation department of the committee, at once issued an authentic list of wheat substitutes Your Limbs Unsightly Hair White Stockings Most women do not realize that super fluous hatr on the limbs shows through dark colored stockings as veil as white.

The list follows: Whole wheat, I'eamits, Rvc flour, Rice, Oat meal, Red Dog flour made from dliugs, , Bread crumbs. Mrs. Kellogg Fairbank, who re lumed on Thursday from .Washing ton, stated yesterday that the house keepers there were responding also to the pica for conservation by advocat ing the use of one-fifth corn meal to replace flour in the bread. They are also advocating the use of much fish instead of meat, as fish cannot be sent to the allies. One meatless day and one wheatless day is the rule in the capital, according to Mrs. Fairbank.

Kxcept with the individual jar holders, a lifter must be used to re move the jars as soon as they have been processed. An ordinary large skimmer with t lie handle at right an gles is a good litter. Containers Either Mason or spring top jars may be used, pro vided they are perfect. New white rubbers should always bo I used. Tests for jars: Mason Jars I'lasc llie top on the jar without the rubber. Turn it down tight. If the thumb nail can be in serted between Ihe lop and I lie glass, the top is usually defective. Glass Top Jars IMacc the glass top on the jar without the rubber. Tap around the outer edge of the lop witn the linger. It tile top rocks, it is defective. Another test is to feel the edge of the glass too with the finger. It should feel perfectly smooth. In the following table Ihe lime is counted always from the beginning of boiling. The jars should be packed tightly except for peas, beans and corn, which swell somewhat in the processing. When packing insert a knife between the side of the jar and the material being packed, to allow the escape of air bubbles. Do not prepare more than two jars at one time if you wish a perfect product. Begin to process as soon as the jars are packed. In the cold pack method llie jars and covers arc sterilized as for any other kind of canning. They should be boiled for twenty minutes and the rubbers dipped into boiling waler just before using. If the jars are old they may be started in hot water; if new they should he tempered, that is, started in cold water.
