War-Time Fashion Revivals.
U'h;i- mint of our friends arc lone

advance in garments iur

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
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

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.
Guess Weight of Cakes.
Forty-eight cakes made by the best
cake makers in Omaha have been do
nated for the ice cream concession at
Hie war relief awn fete at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. John L. Kennedy
Saturday afternoon. Mrs. H. C. Sum-
ney and Mrs. James Kichardson, who
arc in eharce of the booth, are en
thusiastic about the generous offers
of cake which people have made, two
special cakes, one a surprise, win DC
placed on display so that people may
guess their weight. The person guess
ing nearest to the correct weight will
receive the cake as his prize.
Mrs Kuinnrv savs that no one need
fear he has to spend a great deal of
money at the fete. Each small con
tribution will help and the return for
the money will be greater than could
be had anywhere else. Tables orna
mented with baskets of flowers will
be set in an open marquee and a corps
of assistants clad in white will serve.

Canning by the Cold Pack
Method. j
several people who did not have
the opportunity of attending the
canning school held recently have
asked for information about the cun
ning of vegetables. 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
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
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

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
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.

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

For Bunion Sufferers
If you are suffering from an obnox
ious Bunion no matter how large or
painful it may be eome here and get
a full box of the celebrated Bunion
Comfort Plasters try one or two plas
ters, as per direction, and if you do not
get almost instant relief and feel perfectly
satisfied, bring back the remainder and
get your iull money back. You need
not pay one cent if "Bunion Comfort"
does not prove entirely satisfactory. Why
continue to go about with swollen, mis
shapen feet? Why say that Bunions
can t be cured, when here is a guaranteed
remedy easily applied no cutting
no pads or plates but a wonderfully
medicated plaster that works like magic
which may be used in place of part
of the white flour for bread making.
The list follows:
Whole wheat,
Rvc flour,
Oat meal,
Red Dog flour made from
, 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.

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.
