Saving the Sugar in Preserving.
While the food administration is
very generous in its allowance of
sugar for canning and preserving, it
is possible to save sugar even in .those
processes. It has been found perfect
ly satisfactory to substitute sirup in
part, at least, if one can afford the ex
tra cost of the syrup. If the substitu
tion is pound for pound, the cost with
sirup is slightly less, but if the sub
stitution is by measure, the syrup cost
is more because the syrup weighs
more per cup than sugar does. Sugar
weighs about 8' ounces per cup, corn
syrup weighs 1 ounces. . Of course
when syrup is substituted by weight
the sweetening effect is not so great
but the resulting product is very
palatable. t ; ' .
I am not sure enough of the use of
corn syrup in jellies to recommend its
use from personal experience, but I
know it is very good in jams, con
serves and canned fruit And. this
season, we are urged to put up more
jams and less jellies because jams
utilize the whole fruit while in jelly
making, parts of the fruit often go to
waste unless they are used for fruit
butters. More fuel and time is requir
ed in jelly making than in jam mak
ing. ' In canning, use at least half corn
sirup if possible. The following for
mula has proved very successful for
canning sirup: J

Harriet Ruth's Cooking Lesson.
Harriet Ruth heard mother say to
Mrs. Wood, who lived next door:
"Isn't it good to have plenty of cher
ries? We've been revelling in cher
ries. I'm even planning a salad of
them for dinner tonight."
- When mother came into the living
room she was besieged by the small
daughter: "Can't I make the salad?
I've never fixed one all by myself,
and I know I could."
Mother agreed without much coax
ing. Harriet Ruth had proven her
self a real kitchen assistant, and her
mother knew she would prepare the
salad carefully. v
"Mother," she asked, "have you a
recipe for cherry salad?"
"No, I haven't," was the reply. "I
just remember reading a description
of it. Select large, firm red cherries,
wash and pit them, and stuff with a
bit of English walnut or almond.
Arrange them on a bed of lettuce
and serve a spoonful of salad dress
ing at one side. I believe we'll sprin
kle our cherries lightly with pow
dered sugar, because they are so very
"Is the lettuce ready, mother?"
"No. it isn't. That is part of your
job, if you are to fix. the salad. Be
sure to wash each leaf in running
water, and then dry the leaves by

fore serving. Salt the lettuce lightly
before arranging the fruit on it A
dash of salt improves even a fruit

Watermelons and Potatoes
Peaches, apricots, cherries and
other fruits are becoming plentiful on
the Omaha markets. Peaches sell
around 30 cents a dozen. A large
basket of apricots brings 75 cents.
Cherries of the big, sweet California

AMERICANISM AND SOCIAL DEMOC
RACY, By John Spargo, Harperi It Bros.,
The author interprets the socializa
tion now going on in this country.
He gives a program of social democ
racy for which every patriotic Amer
ican can work. As a leader of the new
national party he states authoritative,
ly its aims and platform. A
valuable feature of the book is the
appendix containing the documents
presented at the St. Louis convention
illustrating the schism in the socialist
party as a result of its un-American
war policy. -

Beauty Building With a
Of course you always knew that you
could get exercise with a broom. You
will say immediately that millions of
women, in. this country, young women,
middle aged women and old women,
get considerable exercise with a
broom every day of their lives.
But what kind of exercises?
A great proportion of these women
are prepared to tell us that not only
through the use of the broom but in
many other ways they find a great
deal of exercise in their housework.
But again, what kind of exercise?
The truth is that many millions of
these same women who do plenty of
housework each day are anything but
inspiring examples of the possibilities
of physical culture.
There is a fundamental difference
between work and exercise, ,even
though there are certain varieties of
work which constitute ideal exercise.
And even though too much exercise
or too much of one kind of exercise
may take the form of work.
Work carried to a certain point
tends to build and maintain a certain
amount of strength. Beyond that
point it is exhausting. Exercise is
far more effective for building the
body and developing strength because
it is especially designed for the pur
pose, and within proper limits is re
ireshing and invigorating instead of
exhausting. It tones one up and gives
increased energy instead of consum
Work commonly overtaxes certain
muscles or groups of muscles while
neglecting others. Exercise brings in
to play the neglected muscles, correct
ing any special weakness or defects
and giving the entire body a uniform
development of strength and sym
metry. Exercise promotes the flexibility of
the spine and of all parts of the body,
raising the chest, improving the car
riage and imparting tone and vigor to
internal as well as external parts.
Work, on the contrary, is usually con
ducive to poor bodily posture, with
stiffness and rigidity of all parts, and
this particularly applies in the case of
housework. Nearly all of the activ
ities of housework are of a nature to
bend the back, drag the shoulders
forward, cramp the chest and give
one that drooping, tired out appear
ance that immediately suggests the
need of something in the nature of
"setting up exercise."
Sweeping is indispensable in main
taining a neat and clean house if one
does not arrange to accomplish by the
use of a vacuum cleaner or by some
other method, but after sweeping it
is a simple enough matter to over
come the cramping of the chest and
any stiffness of the body by a few min
utes spent in refreshing and stimulat
ing wand exercises performed with
the broom handle. Whether after
sweeping, or irrespective of any
sweeping whatever, a broom makes
an excellent gymnasium device.
1 The more action one is able to put
into his or her exercises, whether with
a broom, in free movements or in any
other form of training, the greater is
the benefit No movement should be
performed in a half-hearted way.
Each movement should be done with
a pronounced stretch of the muscles
involved and with the expression of
as much energy as may be justified
by the type of exercises involved.
Five repetitions of any movement exe
cuted with energy and spirit would
be more effective than twenty-five
repetitions performed in a perfunctory
manner. Dorothy Pearl Buchanan, in

break this, and, as he Is now traveling en
the road, think It a good time to proceed.
T don't want to do It too suddenly, as I am
afraid of hurting bis feelings. Can yoa ad
vise met "mukruw."
I think you are right In your Idea, but
you are a bit cowardly about carrying tt
out. Maintaining the boy's friendship will
not work. And probably yon cannot eecape
hurting his feelings. But he, la much too
young to be drifting Into a love affair, and
you are older In years and almost "agel"
older in experience. I think you must sac
rifice his friendship for the sake of his
happiness; if you refuse to do this you art
shirking your real responsibility toward him.
If you have the courage to tell him frank
ly exactly how you feel, and to dwell on
the fact that he appears to you te be a
mere boy, you will save him from unhap
plness. The pplnt is: have you the cour
age T Tou can't have your penny and your '
cake, you know.
Should He Have Another Chance?
Dear Miss Fairfax: At the age of 21
young m.n several years my senior appear
ed to be very much la love with me, by
every word and action. He often spoke of
the happiness that would be ours when w
became united in marriage. Suddenly,
without any explanation, he married. Four
years have passed. In the meantime his,
wife has died. He writes that hs Is com
ing to ask my forgiveness and begs me to
give him another chance. Shall I refuse
to see him, or do you think he could b
loyal and trustworthy after thlsT
I think you will have to be governed very
largely by your feelings toward this man.
Do you still car about him? If your affec
tion has stood the t'est of four years It .
might be well to give him another chance,
though his conduct toward you was repre
hensible. Why not assum the attitude that
the friendship of four years ago was rather
ancient history; allow him to call and find
out if he still interests you. Sometimes
thess old beaus are very much Ilk old
gowns. When w see them, after the laps
of years, we wonder how we ever took them
seriously. From our present viewpoint they
seem queer and antiquated, and w realise
that we have been Just as well off to have
them put away, out of sight. Look him over,,
by all means, but don't lose you head ever
A Real Compliment

he was drafted and has been corresponding

time he has had a furlough, but he has
pever come alone. We have always gone
out In parties of fire or seven in his ear..
I was out one night when he called, and
I was told that his mother, fathsr end
brother wer in the car with him.
My friends constantly teass m about "My

little spar time, and he tries te eee ell
his dear one at the earn time. Suppose
hs chose to let his loyalty te hi ewa flash

answsr them at all tell them that yoa are
proud of your friend's loyalty and devotion
to his own people, and equally proud that
he find you the sort of girl he can
proud to introduce to hit family.
Why Seek Trouble?
Dear Miss Fairfax: A stenographer In a
very respectable office has given one or two
lunches at her ofIce for the employer nd
two or three coworkers of both sexes
Every one contributed for the food end'
other little necessities. They wer held en
Saturday afternoons after the regular Offles
hours. This young lady wishes, by ths sug
gestion of the employer, to have another
luncheon to which some of the buslnesi
friends of her employer, working In the m
building, shall be invited. It is hoped
thess friends will benefit the business. Thli
time, however, danolng is wanted, for
which one of the young ladtea will bring a
small phonograph. Some games will also
Everything pertaining to the former
luncheons was Innocent, dainty and delight
ful. All parties concerned respect one ant
other greatly. Do you see any harm la
the plant R. Z. j
Th Idea seems to have been very Jolly
and pleasant when It started. Now, I
don't see why anyone need read evil tat
Its next development and manifestation!
Th fact that business friends of th em
ployer are coming instead of merely em
ployes and co-workers may be a bit out f
the ordinary. The point Is this: Th world
is run on a snobbish basis and when men
of ths employer class play social attention
to their bookkeepers and stenographers,
Mrs. Grundy lifts her eyebrows. It seems
to ms. however, that any dignified, well-
behaved girl can afford to waive her snob'
bery and to meet her employer and hi
friends on a basis of equality at least once. ,
If th party 1 as delightful and dignified
as were the previous ones, then it Justifies
Itself. It It is In any way unpleasant, a
sensible, well-behaved girl can manage ta
call th meeting to order at one and re
fuse ever to have anything to do with an
other such party. All of us nowadaya are
a little too much given to looking for.
