- Save the Fuel
Along with other problems of eco
nomy, the question of saving fuel has
assumed national and international
importance. It is no longer for us to
decide personally whether we care
to savegas or coal or kerosene; our
job is to save the fuel because it is
The delightful part of saving fuel
is that it usually means saving labor
as well; and it always, means saving
the "last minute rush" before a meal.
It also means forethought which fact
makes it the friend of the careful
housewife and the foe of the careless
Fuel Saving Devices.
There is just one principle under
lying all heat saving devices, and that
is to trap the heat after you once
have it. The average stove is very
wasteful of heat as witness the
amount of heat present in a kitchen
where a coal range or eves a gas
stove is burning. The heat may be
kept in by thick walls of non-conducting
material as in a fireless cooker, or
an Atkinson oven, or by producing
steam which is entirely trapped in the
steam pressure cooker or partly trap
ped in any steamer.
The fireless cooker is too familiar
a device to require any explanation,
and its virtues are self-evident. No
doubt the combination of gas and fire
less, or electricity and fireless is the
most satisfactory except for initial ex
pense. Atkinson Ovens.
The Atkinson oven, or Aladdin
oven, as it was sometimes called, is a
splendid device which has never been
popularized. It is an oven that fits
over a kerosene lamp or a small gas
burner, and it is so constructed that
a maximum of heat is retained. I have
never seen but one Atkinson oven,
although the principle of it is identical
with the so-called "fireless" ovens of
some gas and and kerosene stoves.
Recently, however, I have read ad
vertisements of a new oven (portable)
which sounds exactly like the old
x Steam Pressure Cooker.
A clover Denver mechanic one day
thought that steam under pressure
might be a help to the housewife as
well as to the manufacturer and he
invented the "Pressure Cooker." It
saves fuel because it reduces enor
mously the length of time required for
cooking foods that ordinarily require
slow cooking. I have been told that
any ordinary family would save its
initial cost (about $15) in one year
through reduced fuel ills. Tough
cuts of meat can be thoroughly
cooked in 30 minutes with the pres
The ordinary steamer is a perfor
ated vessel which fits over a kettle
of hot water, but the most modern
steamers include an enclosed rack fit
ting over a pan of hot water. There
are several shelves sin the rack and
on each a pan may be placed. Thus
three or four dishes may be steamed
at once, using only one burner. This
is a slow method of cooking, but Very
satisfactory. No flavor is lost.
Saving Fuel Without Special Devices.
The easiest way to save fuel at all
times is to use just as high a flame
as is required and no higher. One
of the most difficult points to teach a
beginner in cooking is that water
boils over a low flame (after the boil
ing point is reached) and that it does
nothing else, even ove a high flame.
In other kinds of cooking, a moderate
flame will nearly always bring just as
good and as qMick results as a high
Another easy method of saving fuel
is to utilize the oven to the full. It is
frequently possible to prepare a
whole dinner in the oven if one will
spend just a little thought in plan
ning the menu.
Ordinary portable ovens are excel
lent to use on the top of the stove
when just one thing is to be baked.
Their initial cost is slight and the cost
will be saved many times over.
Dainty Summer Frock
How and What to
Even a pound-to-pound basis in tht
face of the present flour crisis seemi
too small a part for the red-blooded
American now. We know that the
bread rations of French soldiers have
already been reduced. ,
Many otherwise patriotic house
wives have shown a great want of un
derstandirig in regard to this pound-to-pound
cereal substitute problem
Some have even gone so far as to paj
for the substitutes necessary and
leave them at the dealers, thus open
ly flaunting their intention of not co
operating with the food administration.
And some sucn acts in homes thai
proudly float the American flag and '
display a service flag. These sacred
emblems must have lost their signifi
cance to one who finds it in him to
deliberately take the fighting fuel
from the army.
It is merely a matter of taste witr
us and this should not be counte
nanced. The use of wheat flour is
after all mostly habit. Barley was the
universal cereal used until the latter
part of the 17th century. Aftet
wheat was introduced it took half a
century before the people used even
50 per cent of wheat flour.
Because women directly supervise
the buying and preparation of nine
tenths of all foodstuffs women must
get in line at once and save this wheat
The secret of disposintr of the
pound-to-pound order of wheat sub
stitution is in the selection of sub
stitute cereals. An assortment of the
substitutes allowed and which you can
use without waste is as follows:
Barley flour 5
Potato flour 3
Rice flour 2V
Buckwheat flour 3

"T7IIO would want a sweeter sum
ii mer frock than this pink and
white chiffon cloth, with its trimming
of white Georgette crepe? Upon an
alysis it is the simplest shirtwaist and
skirt, but it is lifted far out of the or
dinary by the vest, collar and hem
stitched inserts of white. Even the
Wall of Troy hem on the vest is a
different touch, which will appeal to
the discriminating woman right away.
Dimity or voile will develop this
frock for the "thrifty" who wish a
less expensive garment than chiffon
cloth. Being thrifty is being patri

War-Time Footwear in
The manufacture of slippers with
wooden soles and cloth tops is a war
time industry which has sprung up in
Holland, reports the United States
Department of Commerce. The up
per and inner parts of the slippers
are formed of twill, corduroy and
woolen stuffs. All these materials are
relatively cheap and yet make com
fortable and durable slippers. The
cloth parts are made by hand and the
wooden soles by machinery.
In view of the mounting prices of
leather footwear, these combination
slippers, which retail for the equiva
lent of $1 pair for the best quality,
are selling rapidly. It is claimed that
they are entirely satisfactory for wear
in the home and are practicable for
women engaged in indoor occupations.

This remarkable product has taken the place ot cow's butter in many thousands of
homes and not alone because it costs less but for the reason that all of the family like
it better. Its popularity is won on merit and the sale is steadily increasing.
Here are a few important things for one to consider.
It is made entirely of vegetable oils and milk.
It is sweet, wholesome and very nutritious. v
It does not get rancid or lose its flavor.
It is a delicious spread for toast and bread .
It is fine for making cakes and pastry.
It will keep firm in warm seasons'.
It costs fully 1-3 less than creamery butter. ,
It is made by experienced butter manufacturers..
Let your next order to your grocer or market man include one, two or three pounds.
It comes to you a creamy white because the law requires a tax of 10c a pound if we
color it, so we supply with each pound carton a capsule of vegetable coloring (the
same used in coloring creamery butter).
