puts Christmas festivities. Its he
xmnings reach far back into English
cuiinary history, along with plum
pudding and roasts of beef. Our
modern improvements (or desecra
tions, as the viewpoint may be) are
along the line of less meat, no alco
hol, and, this year, no sugar.
The necessary ingredients of mince
meat afe generally cooked meat and
meat stock; always sugar, fruits,
apices and suet; and sometimes cider
or alcoholic liquors. These good
things are finely "minced" and mixed
together. The modern food chopper j
a great aia in tne process. With
alcohol added, the mince meat may
keep without cooking; but the safe
thing, according to most cooks, is to
boil the mixture (except the liquor
and spices) slowly for 30 minutes
with frequent stirring. The cooked
mince may be sealed in sterilized
jars and kept for a long time.
Soured fruit juices, jellies or
canned fruits may be added to mince
meat, according to an eastern cook

Country's Poor Forced to
Drop Milk for the Babies
Washington, Dec. 18. Disastrous
results of the sudden rise in the cost
of milk, which is causing the poor to
drop it from the diet of babies and
young children, are reported by the
experts of the National Children's bu
reau, who fear widespread sickness
and a rapid increase in infant mortal
ity, unless milk is continued in the
That the situation is desperate is
shown in the reports of social work
ers during the past few weeks.
In New York City.
In New York City the mayor's com
mittee on milk reports that the total
supply has been reduced 25 per cent
nid that the consumption of milk in
certain parts of the city has been re
duced by half. In the analysis of
(he milk consumed by 2,200 families
it is shown that among them there
were 5,4.18 children under 6 years
of age. and 2,534 from 6 to 13 years
old. The milk estimated to be ade
quate for these families was 8,194
quarts, whereas the amount actually
purchased was 3,193 quarts. Of 120
families who dropped milk entirely
73 substituted canned condensed
milk, and 1,213 of the 1,480 families
visited were substituting tea and cof
fee. Children under 0 years old were
found in 2,148 cases to be drinking
tea and coffee. For babies under 1
year old the amount of milk purchased
was less than that of last year in more
(ban half the families. Twenty-five
families with babies have ceased alto
gether to buy milk.
In Philadelphia social welfare
.vorkers report that many of the
poorer mothers have practically given j
jp buying milk.
The children's bureau estimates
that every child under 6 should have
t least a pint and a half of milk daily.
To Meet Situation.
To meet the situation disclosed by
these reports constant efforts will be
made by the children's bureau to in
duce families to buy the required
amount of milk. Except in cases
where the cost of milk is really pro
hibitive for the very poor, it is be
lieved that families can be educated
to realize the absolute necessity of
buying milk for their children. That
mothers will procure even at a sacri
fice that which is essential for their
babies was shown in the educational
campaign undertaken a few years ago
by the New York milk committee to
teach mothers the importance of
clean milk. Once convinced that
baby's life might be the price of
cheap milk, even the very poorest in
sisted on buying grade A certified
milk in spite of the increased cost.
That milk will have to be supplied
at public expense for families who
cannot afford to buy it while the
present emergency lasts is the con
clusion of the children's bureau.

Teaching Filipino Girl
At Bokod a Philippine girl with two
years' training can earn 25 cents a
day, weaving yellow covers, table run
ners, or dress materials, says the
Christian Herald. The food she eats
costs cents a day.
She not only earns money for her
self and family in addition to taking
a complete academic course, but one
half the proceeds from her labor,
turned into the school fund, has al
ready provided the school with a
line phonograph, a good collection of
records, and the instruments for a 10
piece stringed orchestra, which turns
out music that would compare with
the best that graduates from a New
English finishing school could do.
Syrup Gives Energy
. Syrup and molasses as well as candy
are quickly converted by the human
body into heat and energy. When
you have griddle rakes with delicious
maple syrup for breakfast the syrup
gives a great deal more than flavor.

the same way as the wheat cakes only

should be slipped from the cases or

between two cakes, and each sand

There's But One
Safe Way to Buy
I keep in close touch with market
conditions of food products. I am correctly
informed as to the cash and food value of practically every
article of table and baking use. My knowledge and close
acquaintance with bakinp; materials and their quality and
money worth passed on to you in my articles, should aid in
the selection of proper foods at proper prices.
You have often heard the expression
that "water seeks its own level." This same
chought might well be applied to merchandise.'
Inferior merchandise may find a
ready demand when first put on the market
but its inferiority is soon found out and its sale usually takes
a slump. Hence I have tome to the conclusion that the
biggest seller is the best buy.
When some certain brand is given
a wide preference over all similar merchandise
it means but one thing merit has proved it best. I
So it follows that if housewives would
purchase only merchandise that meets the
greatest demand their buying would be far more satisfactory.
I have noticed invariably that the
demand for a product always verifies the value
of a product determined by scientific tests which proves my
Take baking powder. The biggest selling
brand on the market today proved to me by the most critical
experiments that it is entitled to the preference it hat gained.
There are more pounds of Calumet sold than
any other brand of baking powder. Usage has proved its
luperiority my tents pointed to the same fact. The woman who
buys Calumet eliminates all possibla waste. She profits by the ex
perience of millions of women who after testing many different brands
of baking powder find Calumet best. It is safe to buy because over
whelming choice shows the supreme satisfaction it renders the vast
majority of housewives.
I have made investigations and trips through
many plants that manufacture food articles, and I have yet
to find a finer and better equipped, more up to date, sanitary plant
than that of the Calumet Baking Powder Co. Anyone who will visit
this plant will readily understand why they jhould and how they do
manufacture baking powder that fills all the requirements.
