Play Bridge for Groceries.
All good bridge players, give heed!
In these days of high cost of gro
ceries you may put your ability to use
by attending a bridge party where eat
ables will be given as prizes. The in
genious idea popped into the head of
Mrs. A. V. Shotwell, who is in charge
of the Tuesday afternoon bridge
game at the Field club, that instead
of offering silk hose and knitting bags
as bridge prizes each week, she would
give a sack of flour, a ham, a basket
of fruit, or something of similar na
ture. Now all who have heard of the plan
are looking forward eagerly to the day
when these valuable articles will be
the prizes. ,
Not long ago a group of Chicago
fashionables played for such stakes
and enjoyed the scheme immensely.
"Oh, what a grand sack of flour," the
first prize-winner will exclaim as she
has the bundle carried out to her
limousine. "But not half so good as
my prize ham,' a friend will say as
she displays her reward. Mrs. Shot
well has not yet set the day on which
these prizes will be played for, but it
will be in the near future.
Mrs. Joseph Barker won as first
prize at the game Tuesday a Sheffield
cheese and cracker dish. Mrs. Wil
liam Kierstead has a new patent
leather purse to show for her prow
ess and Mrs. J. W. Battin received a
pretty pair of white gloves as third
prize. The fourth prize was a set
of linen napkins. Ten tables were
filled with players, who played until
after the rain was over.
At 4 o'clock this afternoon Dr. G.
A. Hulbert of the St. Mary's Avenue
Congregational church united in mar
riage Miss Emily Bridges, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Bridges, and
Mr. Earl Byram of Decatur.
The bride wore a rose-colored sat
in suit with white Milan hat trimmed
in black velvet. Her corsage bou
quet was of white roses with show
ers of white sweet peas. She was
attended by her sister, Miss Margaret
Bridges, who wore a blue silk jersey
suit with a large leghorn hat trimmed
in blue of the same shade and jade.
She wore a corsage of Mrs. Ward
Mr. Paul Conhealy of Decatur was
best man and Messrs. Warren Fitch
and Alfred Charde were ushers. Mas
ter William Hoist, jr., carried the ring
and little Miss Betty Rigdon, cousin
of the bride, was flower girl. Miss
Addie Bunn of Blair played the wed
ding march and Miss Jocelyn Charde,
also the bride's cousin, sang "I Love
You Truly." Four friends of the
bride, Misses Viola Morearty, Mary
Simpson, Mary Marsten and Lucile
Kelly, in white frocks, stretched the
ribbons for the bridal party.
The ceremony was performed in the
living room before an improvised altar
of greens. Large baskets of pink and
white Killarney roses were used
throughout the house.
Mr. and Mrs. Byram left late in
the afternoon for a trip among the
northern lakes. They will be at home
in Decatur after August 1.
At Seymour Lake Country Club.
Mrs. H. C. Forster was hostess at

lands of roses to match the color
scheme. Prizes were awarded as fol

dozen cut glass iced tea glasses; Mrs.
Frederick Akerlund, cut glass grape

Fruits and vegetables may be dried
satisfactorily by cleaning, slicing and
exposing to the sun or to the air out
doors, or the process may be hastened
by placing in trays lone piled on tup
of the other) over a stove so that the
1. Plan for
warm air will pass upward through
them. Drying may also be done by
use of the oven. These processes
sometimes discolor the fruit or vege
tables, and in many instances cause
deterioration of flavor and quality due
to changes which take place in the
material during the process of evapor
ation. Sun or outdoor drying is usually a
long process and there is danger of
loss by souring. This process is not
very sanitary because of exposure to
dust and sometimes to flies. Drying
by use of the oven is slow, as is also
the use of hot air dryers which are
placed on top of stoves.
Dr. H. C. Gore of the United States
Department of Agriculture has per
fected a process of drying which is
very simple. It is based upon the re
moval of saturated air from around
the sliced vegetables or fruits, thus al
lowing unsaturated air to come in
continuous contact with fhe articles
being dried. The process will remove
approximately 90 per cent of the mois-

Mrs. Alfred Darlow, until Saturday

they will motor to the Minnesota

Events to Come.
Miss Mary Megeath wilt entertain
at luncheon at the Country club Fri
day for Miss Stella Thummel.
Women of Happy Hollow club, who
gathered Tuesday afternoon to dis
cuss the plans of the entertainment
committee, decided that the only one
of the weekly affairs to be inaugu
rated at present will be the bridge
luncheon. The first of these affairs
will be given July 5 and will continue
every other week after that.
Registering at the Hotel McAlpin
from Omaha during the past week
have been: Mr. E. F. Cunningham,
Mr. C. B. Williams, Mr. C. H. Shames
and Mr. W. S. Doty.

It is easy to understand hnw this

of these trays will depend on the ap
paratus used for forcing air though
them. If electricity is available an elec

pending upon the amount of evaporat
ing which is to be done. Blasts from
air circulating systems in buildings
can be used or fans may be attached
to gasoline engines. A simple plan for
such a homemade fan is shown in
The cost of operating the electric
fan will depend upon tiie rate charged
for electricity. The charge in Lincoln
is approximately 5 cents a kilowatt
hour. For drying fruit and vegetables
and for general household use we rec
ommend a twelve-inch fan, though a
smaller fan will do this work well.
Five cents worth of electricity, at the
above rate, will run an eight-inch fan
about forty hours, a ten-inch fan thir
ty hours or a twelve-inch fan twentv
four hours. If the rate is 10 cents the
cost would be just twice as great.
For a twelve-inch electric fan, a tray
eighteen inches wide, three feet long
and two inches deep is recommended.
The end to be placed next to the fan
should be left entirely open, and the
trays should be stacked, one on top of
the other, from six to eight of them
in a pile. Figure 1 gives details for
making such a tray. Ordinary pearl
wire window screen should be used.
It can be bought in such width that
the selvage will be at the top of the
enclosed end. Do not use the painted
screen or the cheap galvanized screen.

when preparing for table use. After
cleaning they should be slired thin.
The slicing process may be hastened
by the use of a rotary siiccr. A small
rotary siiccr which will cut slices of
any thickness from one thirty-second
of an inch to one-half inch can he pur
chased for about $2. These slicers are
similar to the bread slicers or dried
beef slicers ordinarily used.
In slicing asparagus, rhubarb or
string beans, drying will be hastened
by slicing lengthwise first and then
crosswise. This exposes more of the
cells to the action of the air currents.
The vegetables or fruits are spread
thin over the wire screen tray, the
tray are stacked and the fan set in
motion at the end of the trays as
shown in figure 2.
Certain vegetables or fruits will
discolor unless specially treated. Ap
ples ordinarily turn dark when dried.
This can be prevented by dipping the
sliced apples in a 2 per cent solution
of ordinary table salt and placing
them immediately on the trays for
drying. This solution can be made by
using 2Yi level teaspoons of salt to
one quart of water.
After a sufficient amount of mois
ture has been removed the dried fruits

and vegetables can be stored in any
receptacle which will keep away in
sects of all kinds. Glass or tin jars or
cans with tight-fitting lids make good
containers. Perhaps the cheapest
method of storing, if receptacles are
not already on hand, is by means of
paraffin fiber containers. These can be
purchased In quantities, costing from
', to 5 cents each in slices varying
from a pint to a gallon. A list of com
panies manufacturing fiber containers
and slicing machines will be sent upon
request. The old method of storing
by placing in cloth or paper bags and
hanging in a dry place will usually
give fair results.
In cooking evaporated fruits or veg
etables it is essential to remember that
they must be soaked in cold or tepid

tion. In soaking evaporated fruits or
vegetables, it is well to use only a
small amount of water just a suffi
cient amount to properly soak them
and still leave enough for cooking.
Ordinarily fruits and vegetables should
be cooked in the same water in which
they are soaked, for the water will
contain some of the pleasing flavors
and valuable nutrients. In the case
of vegetables or fruits which have a
strong or bitter taste, such as turnips,
a more pleasing flavor may he se
cured by changing the water while
cooking or soaking.
