Recipe for a Happy Day.
"Take a little dash of cold water,
A little leaven of prayer,
A little bit of sunshine gold
Dissolved in morning air.
Add to your meal some merriment,
Add thought for kith and kin.
And then as a prime ingredient,
A plenty of work thrown in.
Flavor it all with essence of love.
And a little dash of play.
Let the dear old Book, and a glance above
Complete the well spent day.

"O, a very fine thing is a good education.
And a very fine matter is good legislation,
But to keep people healthy, contented and quiet,
'Tis a sine qua non to begin with their diet."
The meats for soups should be put in cold water and the
salt added toward the last. If put in at first the meat is
toughened and juices retained. Be careful to remove all
scum and boil slowly. For thickening use CAPITOLA
flour rubbed smooth in water or milk. If you wish the soup
dark in color, use browned flour. Herbs used for seasoning
soups are : sage, thyme, tarragon, mint, sweet basil, parsley,
bay leaves, cloves and mace. Allspice and celery seed are
used in some soups to a great advantage. Nearly all vege-
tables are used in soups. The white of an egg is an ex-
cellent clarifier for stock.
Cream of Aspsu'agus Soup.
Open one can of asparagus ; use water from the can and
add to it one bay leaf, one onion, salt and pepper, also
stalks of asparagus after cutting off tips, reserved to add
later. After boiling ten minutes strain through a colander.
In a separate vessel make a cream sauce of one heaping
tablespoonful of CAPITOLA flour rubbed into one table-
spoonful of melted butter ; add one pint of sweet milk. Stir
constantly to keep from lumping. Add stock to this. Be-
fore serving, heat asparagus tips and put in mixture.
Mrs. B. H. Dunn.
Take dried white beans, wash and pick carefully ; cover
with cold water and boil until beans are soft. Add more
water as it boils away. Mash the beans ; add as much wa-
ter as you want soup, tablespoonful of butter, salt and
pepper to taste. Mrs. J. C. White
Six pounds of beef and bone ; cut up the meat and break
the bones ; add two quarts of cold water and simmer slowly
five hours. Strain through a fine sieve, remove every par-
ticle of fat ; add a little extract of onion and some chopped
parsley, or leave out the onion if preferred.
Mrs. W. C. Robinson.
WEAR-EVER ALUMINUM UTENSILS are sanitary and
economical. King Hardware Co.
Dumplings for Soup.
One cup of CAPITOLA flour, one-fourth teaspoonful of
salt, one teaspoonful of baking powder, sieved together.
Add one-third cup of finely chopped suet, lard or butter,
and enough milk to make a stiff dough. Form in dum-
plings size of marbles, drop into soup, cover and boil ten
minutes. Mrs. A. T. Spalding.
Take a chicken and fry half done, then pour over it three
quarts of v^ater. Add two dozen pods of okra fried, two
slices of broiled or fried middling meat, half a cabbage,
chopped fine, half a dozen tomatoes, a little minced onion,
a pod of red pepper, a sprig of parsley and salt to taste.
Thicken with browned CAPITOLA flour.
Mrs. Ellen G. Whitney.
Gumbo File (Creole).
Gumbo file can be made either of chicken and oysters,
veal and oysters, or crabs and shrimp. Cut up the chicken
or veal as for a stew, salt and pepper it, put a large table-
spoonful of lard in your cooking vessel, let it get hot be-
fore putting in seasoned chicken or veal ; let this fry for
about fifteen minutes, then add an onion cut in small pieces,
also a very small piece of garlic. When it is fried (not
brown) add a large tablespoonful of CAPITOLxA. flour and
let it brown, then pour in the juice of the oysters and
enough of the hot water to make gumbo for four in family,
pour in the water a little at a time and stir the whole so
that the flour will not remain in lumps. Then put in the
seasoning — salt, black and red pepper (not cayenne), a tn-
blespoonful of chopped parsley, a sprig of thyme and one or
two bay leaves and four or five cloves. Let the whole boil
about two hours and a half. Fifteen minutes before serv-
ing put in two or three dozen oysters. Let them boil. When
about to serve, remove the vessel to the back of the stove,
where it will keep hot, but not boil ; add about half a table-
spoonful of file, if it is fresh. Take a pinch of file, sprinkle
in with the left hand while you stir with the right hand.
In that way you will avoid lumps of file. Let all stand for
five minutes, but do not let it boil. It is then ready to be
dished. Take out the bay leaves before sending to the
table. At table serve a spoonful of rice in each soup plate.

10 grams beef marrow, 2 eggs, 4 grams salt, Yz tablespoon
chopped parsley, 100 grams dry bread crumbs. Melt mar-
row over fire, stir till foamy, add eggs, bread crumbs, par-
sley and salt to taste. Form dumplings with teaspoon, put

Mock Turtle Soup.
Take three pounds of neck mutton, cover it with half a
gallon of water, cook until tender, put in allspice and cloves
and flavor with sherrp wine. Serve with the meat cut in
small dice. Mrs, George Sciple.
Break an, egg in a bowl and beat into it a little more
than one-half cupful of CAPITOLA flour and one-fourth
teaspoonful of salt. Work the dough with the hands until
it becomes smooth. Sprinkle a moulding board with flour
and roll the dough as thin as possible. It should be like
a wafer. Let it lie upon the board for five minutes, then
roll it up loosely, and with a sharp knife cut in slices about
one-third of an inch thick. Spread these little pieces and
let them dry for half an hour or more.
Put on the stove a large sauce pan containing two quarts
of boiling water. Add a tablespoonful of salt and after
turning noodles into the water, cook them rapidly for
twenty-five minutes. Turn into a colander and drain. Add
noodles to any soup desired, boil five minutes and serve.
Add noodles to beef or any other broth after straining.
They are excellent in broth of chicken left after cooking for
salad. Mrs. S. S. Wood.
Beat in a tureen 2 eggs, 1 heaping tablespoonful of to-
mato catsup, 1 heaping tablespoonful of Worcestershire
sauce, red pepper and salt to taste ; on the stove put pot

water of the quantity you wish to make. When all this is
well boiled put in oysters and let cook well, but not too
long. Heat tureen and when oysters are read}^ pour the
contents of pot on mixture in tureen.
Mrs. Mary Goggan Johnson.
Take three terrapins, cut open and clean them, then scald
the shells, scrape them, and put into a pot with four quarts
of water ; boil until tender, then take out and pick to pieces.
Place the meat again in the water. Add pepper and salt to
taste. Fry a small piece of fat pork, chop it fine, and add
to the soup. Thicken with browned flour, CAPITOLA;
then add a teaspoonful of mace and one of allspice. When
done add the juice of two lemons, one cup of claret. If the
soup is not a rich brown from the flour, brown a little sugar
for coloring. Mrs. Spencer R. Atkinson.
Cream of Tormato.
To one can of tomatoes add half pint of water, let stew,
then strain through sieve, season with salt, pepper, butter
and afew drops of onion juice ; thicken with one table-
spoonful of CAPITOLA flour which has been rubbed
smooth with a little cold water. Add half teaspoonful of
soda to prevent curdling. Let one quart of milk reach boil-
ing point and mix just before serving. Chopped parsley im-
proves flavor. Mrs. Will Dunn.
Over a large soup bone or soup meat, pour two gallons of
cold water and boil before putting in the vegetables. Into
this add one-half head of finely-chopped cabbage, two or
three turnips, a few pods of okra, two large white potatoes
cut fine, a few stalks of celery and some parsley. After this
has boiled three or four hours salt to taste and thicken
with a heaping teaspoonful of CAPITOLA kour rubbed
smooth with water. Some might prefer it strained, while
others like the vegetables. Mrs. C. G. Lippold,
FISH and OYSTERS
"This dish is too good for any but anglers and very honest
men." — The Complete Angler.
"Now if you are ready, oysters dear, we can begin to feed." —
The Walrus and the Carpenter.
"Master, I marvel how the fishes live in the sea?" "Why, as
men do a-land ; the great ones eat up the little ones."— Pericles.
To cook fish properly is very important, as no food per-
haps is so insipid if carelessly cooked. It must be well done
and properly salted. A good rule to go by is the following:
Allow ten minutes to the first pound and five minutes to
each additional pound. For example: If you have a fish
weighing five pounds, boil it thirty minutes. By pulling out
a fin you may ascertain whether it is done or not. If it
comes out easily and the meat is opaque white the fish has
boiled long enough. Salt fish, if possible, several hours
before cooking. This applies to both baked and fried fish.
Heat the salt, and it will penerate to the bone more read-
ily. Always put fish on to cook with hot water.
To Broal Fish.
Clean, wash and wipe dry. Split so that when placed flat
the backbone will be in the middle, or take the bone out.
Sprinkle with salt and aly inside down upon a buttered
broiler over a clean fire until it is nicely colored. Then
turn. When done put upon a hot dish, butter plentifully
and pepper. Put a hot cover over it and send to table.
One dozen hard-shelled crabs (boiled), three pints milk,
one tablespoon butter, half tablespoon thyme, one table-
spoon Worcestershire sauce, one tablespoon Durkee's salad
dressing, salt and pepper to taste.
Directions : Put milk in stew pan on stove and add but-
ter. Put thyme, sewed or tied, in cloth or sack, in milk.
Put in a cup the Worcestershire sauce and Durkee's dress-
ing, and fill cup quickly with milk, stirring it rapidly, and
then pour it over the crab meat. Then put meat in stew
pan with milk when boiling, but be sure there is no shell
or dark piece of crab meat. Stir well, and when it again
comes to a boil have the yolk of eggs mixed with a little
CAPITOLA flour and a little milk ready. Pour this into
the stew pan with crab meat, etc., and stir rapidly for a few
minutes. Take out bag of thyme before serving, and season
with salt and pepper to taste. Park Woodward.

Here is bread which strengthens man's heart, and is therefore
called the stafif of life. — Henry.
The three important requisites to the making of good
bread are : Good flour, good fresh yeast and strength and
endurance to knead or work it well. No book can alone
teach the art. Experience is the school from which we
must gain our best knowledge. First of all we must have
good flour. Good flour adheres to the hand, and is of a
creamy tint, bad flour has a dingy blue tint and will not
adhere to the hand. When bread is set to rise cover tight-
ly, set in a warm place in winter. When it is worked for
the last time allow it to rise to its full capacity, so as
to avoid cracked, split and broken loaves. The oven for
baking bread should be rather quick and the heat reg-
ular, in order to penetrate the dough without causing the
outside to get hard. The oven door should be kept closed
until the dough becomes firm, as the cool air is very in-
jurious to bread. As soon as the bread is well soaked take
from the pan and put where the air can pass around it.
If you like the crust crisp do not cover the bread. If a
soft crust is preferred wrap the loaves in a thick cloth
while hot. If bread is cut while warm a hot knife must
be used. Let all loaves be thoroughly soaked ; to tell

"Upon what meat doth this one Caesar feed, that he has
grown so great?"
"There's no want of meats, sir; portly and curious viands
are prepared to please all kinds of appetites. — Messenger.
It is very essential that we understand how to select
meat. Beef should be a bright red in color, fine grained
and smooth, and when pinched with fingers should be ten-
der. The choicest pieces for roasting are the sirloin and
Veal must be firm and dry, fine grained and delicate pink
Mutton is good when the flesh is dark red in color, close
grained, firm and juicy, the fat firm and white.
Pork: If young the lean will break when mashed with
fingers, if the rind is rough and hard it is old. This meat is
more liable to disease than any other animal meat. The
person doing the marketing should be particular to buy
from reliable butchers and some one known to purchaser.
If the meat is clammy the pork is bad. If the fat has ker-
nels in it the pig has been measly. If the flesh is very red
it signifies scarlet fever. Pork is the driest and fattest of
Venison must be fat, else it is unfit for use.
The success of roasting depends on the heat of the fire.
Meat placed in a cool oven loses its juices and the result is
a tough, tasteless roast; whereas if the oven is hot the
pores of the meat are immediately closed and the juices re-
tained. The oven should be hottest when the meat is first
put in, so that the surface will be quickly crisped. When
the oven is too hot to hold the hand in a moment, it is then
ready for the meat. The time required for roasting will
vary according to thickness of roast, about fifteen or twen-
ty minutes allowed to pound. In preparing a roast it should
first be washed in pure water, then thoroughly dried with a
clean towel, placed in a baking pan without any seasoning ;
lay some pieces of suet or cold dripping under it, but no
water should be put in the pan, for this has a tendency to
soften the outside of the meat, the steam preventing the
crispness so desirable. It should be frequently basted with
its own drippings and seasoned when partly cooked.
In cooking lamb, pork and veal the fire should be slower
and the meat cooked until it leaves the bone and is nicely
browned without burning. An -onion sliced on top of roast
TOLEDO STEAM COOKERS cook a whole meal over one

gives a nice flavor, especially to pork, the onion being re-
moved before serving.
Drawing pieces of fat pork through the upper surface of
meat is called larding and is done with a larding needle,
which can be procured from house furnishing stores.
Stewing meat should be put in boiling water, closely
covered and slowly boiled. When tender season.
Salt meats must be covered with cold water and slowly
boiled, requiring about thirty minutes to the pound after
boiling has commenced. If very salty it should be soaked
over night or, pour off first boiling water and place in sec-
ond boiling water. After the boiling starts the pot should
never stop simmering.
When meats are found frozen, if thawed by placing in
warm water or before the fire, it will certainly spoil them
and render them unfit for use. The only way to thaw is
by putting them in cold water. This should be done in time
to have them well thawed before cooking.
Remember, the chief point in roasting beef is to have the
oven well heated when meat is first put in. This prevents
the escape of the juices. Take a rib piece or loin roast of
seven pounds or eight, wipe it thoroughly all over with a
clean wet cloth, lay in baking pan, and baste well with but-
ter or suet fat. Set in oven. Baste frequently with its
own drippings, which will make it brown and tender. When
partly done, season with salt and pepper, as it hardens any
meat to salt it when raw and draws out its juices ; then
dredge with sifted flour to give it a frothy appearance. It
will take a roast of this size about two hours' time to be
properly done, leaving the inside a little rare or red — half
an hour less would make the inside quite rare. Remove the
beef to a heated dish, set where it will keep hot ; then skim
the drippings from all the fat, add a tablespoonful of sifted
CAPITOLA flour, a little pepper and a teacupful of boiling
water. Boil up once and serve hot in a gravy boat. Some
prefer the clear gravy without the thickening. Serve with
mustard or grated horseradish. Mrs. A. H. VanDyke.

To Boil a Ham.
A blade of mace, a few cloves, a sprig of thyme and two
bay leaves. Soak ham well in large quantity of water
for 24 hours, then trim and scrape very clean ; put into a
large stew pan with more than sul^cient water to cover it ;
put in mace, cloves, thyme and bay leaves. Boil four or
five hours according to weight ; when done let it become
colld in liquor in which it was boiled, then remove rind
carefully without injuring the fat; press cloth over it to
absorb as much of the grease as possible. It is always
improved by setting into the oven for nearly an hour, till
much of the fat dries out, and also makes it more tender.

nished with parsley. Mrs. J. D. Carter.

You want it hot, but not too much (you will have to learn
this by experience). Boil until meat leaves bones; then
separate meat from bones. Put with liver in wooden ves-
sel, and chop fine with chopping knife or grind in sausage
mill. Then put back in same liquor cooked in, adding all
other ingredients, and boil to right consistency. After add-
ing corn and milk you will have to keep continually stir-
ring with woden paddle to keep from scorching, as it is
very easily scorched. Salt to taste. It takes about three
hours to boil down after all ingredients are in. The above
amount is enough for about a dozen people. A pint of port
wine added just before it is served improves it.

Pick and draw with care, wash in several waters, wipe
dry. In the next to last rinsing water put a teaspoonful of
baking soda. Oftentimes the inside of a fowl is very sour,
especially if not freshly killed. Soda is cleansing and cor-
rects the acidity that we sometimes taste in the dressing
when the fowls are not fresh. After rinsing with soda
water dry well inside and out, rub some salt on inside, then
stuff the breast and body with a good fowl dressing; sew
up the turkey with a strong thread, tie the legs and wings
to the body, rub it well all over with soft butter, sprinkle
well with salt and pepper, dredge with a little CAPITOLA
flour, place in a dripping pan, pour in cup of boiling wa-
ter, cover entirely with a nice brown paper well greased,
set in oven. Baste the turkey often , turning it around
occasionally, so that every part will be uniformly baked.
When pierced with a fork and the liquid runs perfectly
clear, the turkey is done. Serve with cranberry sauce. The
garnishes for turkey are fried oysters, slices of lemon, par-
sley or force meat balls.
Cut the brown crust from slices or pieces of stale bread
until you have as much as the inside of a pound loaf, put it
in a suitable dish, and pour tepid water (not warm, for
that makes it heavy) over it, let stand one minute, as it
soaks very quickly. Now take up a handful at a time and
squeeze it hard and dry with both hands, placing it as you
go along in another dish. This process makes it very light.
When all is pressed dry, toss it all up lightly through your
fingers. Now add salt and pepper, about a teaspoonful,

One pint cold peas, 1 pint cold snap beans, 1 pint cold

Slice tomatoes over top and serve on lettuce leaves, with
French dressing. Miss Gladys Snook.
The best time to make this salad is right after a mid-day
dinner in the summer time when you have had several dif-
ferent kinds of vegetables. Let nice ripe tomatoes form
the basis of the salad. These should be carefully peeled with
a sharp knife vand cut up in bits about the size of a chest-
nut. Add two or three tablespoons of snap beans or green
peas, about the same amount of Irish potatoes, diced, an"d
a slice of onion cut fine. Other vegetables, such as but-
ter beans, may be used in the place of one of the above.
Boiled beets give a dash of color which is pretty when you
haven't the tomatoes. Make a good French dressing and
pour over salad, mixing carefully so as not to break the
pieces. Put in a cool place and serve on lettuce leaves.
Mayonnaise may be used if preferred to French dressing.

"It is tlu- bounty of nature that we live, but of philosophy that
we live well."— Seneca.
The sauce-maker who is successful must pay strict atten-
tion to details, for upon them rests the delicate flavor so
desirable. Nothing but the choicest materials must be used.
The taste of stale and inferior ones cannot be disguised
by profusely seasoning as some cooks imagine. To make a
good sauce of the proper consistency, having the ingre-
dients so proportioned that the presence of no particular
one is perceptible, is an accomplishment of which any
housewife may well be proud. The sweet sauce is to the
pudding and similar dessert what the sauce picmante is to
meats — it adds the finishing touch to the latter and accen-
tuates the savoriness of the dish it accompanies.
Pick a quart of cranberries, wash and drain and put to
boil in a sauce pan with half a teacupful of water. Stew
slowly, stir often till thick. Take from the fire, strain
through a sieve, sweeten abundantly with granulated sug-
ar ; wet a mold with cold water, pour in the sauce and set
away in a cool place to get firm, then turn out in a glass
bowl. Eat with roast turkey, ducks, geese and game of
any kind. Never sweeten while cooking, it injures the
color. Mrs. R. J. Scott.

tablespoon of dry mustard, a very little cayenne pepper.

mixed well put in more, very little at a time, until you
have used a third of a bottle, then add a large spoonful of
vinegar, then more oil, using in all two-thirds of a bottle
of oil, then another spoonful of vinegar. When mixed it
must be very light and a good color. Set it on the ice for
two or three hours. Not more than twenty minutes before
using the salad mix it and prepare for the table by putting
%vith the meat about half of the dressing; stir it up well.

Notes on Cake Making.
Spices when called for must be ground finely and
thoroughly mixed together. Fruits and nuts must be cut in
small pieces and dredged with flour before adding to batter.

Time Table for Baking Cakes.
Sponge cake, ^ of an hour. Fruit cake, 3 and 4 hours,
according to size. Pound cake, 1 hour. Small cakes, cookies,
etc., 10 to 15 minutes.
Notes on Baking Cakes.
Cakes without butter should have a quicker oven than
those of same size containing butter. To test the tem-
perature of the stove, sprinkle a little flour inside and shut
the door for about 3 minutes. If at the end of that time
it is a light rich brown, the cake may be put in, but if
burned the heat must be reduced. Insert a clean broom
straw into middle of cake to test. If done, the straw will
come out clean.

FROZEN CREAMS AND ICES
"Then farewell heat and welcome frost." — Merchant of Venice.
"But then my fare was all so light and delicate;
It would not bear a bite — no not a munch —
But melted away like ice." — Hood.
Before beginning see that the freezer is clean and sweet.
Scald the can, lid and dasher thoroughly. Adjust the can
and dasher properly before putting in any ice and salt. Chip
the ice in fine pieces, the finer the better, mix coarse rock
salt thoroughly with the chipped ice in the proportion of
three parts of ice to one of salt, then fill the tub of freezer
to top and keep it full during the freezing process. Turn
the crank slowly until the mixture is thoroughly chilled,
then turn steadily and quickly till it is hard to turn. See
that the hole near the top of the tub is always open. The
can of- freezer should never be filled more than two-thirds
full of the mixture to be frozen. After the cream is frozen
and dasher removed push down the salt and ice, put new
ice and salt in, cover with an old piece of carpet and set
away one or two hours to ripen.
One-half box gelatine, one can sliced pineapples, one cup
sugar, one pint cream, one cup cold water, squeeze in some
lemon, dissolve gelatine in the water, cook pineapple and
sugar a little (only enough to dissolve sugar well). When
cool beat in gelatine, whip cream, add all, heat until thick.
Put on ice or in cold place. Peaches, oranges, raspberries
or any kind of fruit may be used. Serve with whipped
cream flavored. Miss Annie B. Northen.

The foundation of all fruit ices should be one quart of
water to one pound of sugar boiled five minutes. This
gives a finer grain than the uncooked sugar. This is a
broad rule for all ices. The juice of one lemon improves
nearly all fruit except raspberries. It is best to press fruit
through a sieve. After adding the fruit to the boiled syrup
strain through a cloth and then freeze. When the mixture

BLUE VALLEY BUTTER— you can risk it on your biscuit.
We should be kcerful how we encurridge luxuries. It is but

half by the nearest road when we have to go back again. — Josh
Granulated sugar is preferable for making candy. It
should not be stirred while boiling ; cream of tartar should
not be added until syrup begins to boil ; butter should be
put in when candy is almost done. Falvors are more deli-
cate when not boiled in candy but added afterward.
Three cups of sugar, 1^ cups of rich sweet milk, 1 table-
spoonful of butter, cook this mixture slowly until it begins
to boil, then put into it nearly a half of a cake of Walter
Baker's chocolate, grated, cook, constantly trying a little
of it in a cup of cold water. It is done when the candy
forms a little soft ball in th^ bottom of the cup. When
taken from the fire it must be beaten until perfectly cream-
ed and begins to be heavy, then pour in a buttered plate,
and when cool cut in little blocks. Miss Nell Fuller.
For cooked creams take two cupfuls of granulated sugar,
water enough to wet thoroughly, which will be about two
tablespoonfuls, put the sugar and water on in an unstained
porcelain pan, and let it boil without stirring until it reach-
es the thread degree, i. e., until a thread will form from the
drops from a spoonful of the candy, pour out upon a marble
slab and work with a wooden paddle. First stir around
with the paddle, when begins to cream, work with the pad-
dle and hands until the fondant is perfectly smooth and
without grains. It can be made into rolls and sliced off or
worked into any desired form. This may be kept for a
week or more in cold weather if coevred with waxed paper.
Mrs. H. G. Fennell.
Three cups sugar, 1 cup water, pinch salt, 1 small cocoa-
nut, freshly grated. In hot weather boil till crackles ; in

water and salt boil well pour over cocoanut and beat.

ing used. If it becomes sticky place in the refrigerator, or
out in the cold air. Mrs. Gordon W. Burnett.
Take two heaping cups of granulated sugar, one wine
glassful of vinegar and one tumbler of water, boil one-half
hour, flavor with vanilla and* pull like molasses candy.
Mrs. J. D. Ponder.
One pund of raisins, 2 pounds of almonds, % pound of
citron, ^ pound of figs, blanch the almonds, cut the raisins
and figs fine, shave citron, dissolve 4 cups of sugar with a
little water, add 1 cup of sweet milk or cream and a tea-
spoonful of buter, cook till thick, which will take about
fifteen minutes, remove from fire, add fruit gradually, beat
thoroughly, wet a napkin, pour candy into it and roll up.

Mrs. J. D. Frazier.

ready some chopped raisins, citron and nuts, putting as
much into the fondant as it will hold. Fill out the date or

showing. Mrs. W. Gordon Burnett.

Don't light the hurners of your gas raiiKe till you're ready to cook. The
flame should be bluish, which shows proper and economical air mixture
through ports at front.
The big burner is for fast cooking or when a large vessel is used. The
other top burners are for ordinary use. The simmering burner is quite useful
when food has been raised to boiling point on the other burners.
In using the oven, remember it's hottest at the top, because heat rises.
To roast meat, have the oven hot with both burners on, then place the
meat inside broiler oven close under the flame, leaving door open, bear the
meat all over thus, to hold the juices in. Extinguish one burner, lower the
meat close the door. When roast is half done, add salt and pepper and turn
it over to cook on other side. Flour may be added at this time, to brown for
gravy. Allow 15 to 20 minutes to the pound for beef, etc., and 25 minutes to
the pound for pork, veal, lamb. Don't boil the roast beforehand. Don t use
a roaster or top on the pan. Cook poultry same way, except in oven. When
done, joints will break.
Cookies and small cakes should be baked quickly. Heat the oven 10
minutes. Then put them in near top of oven.
For baking layer cakes, heat oven 2 minutes, place layers on top rack and
turn down both burners one-fourth. Bake 15 to 20 minutes with this heat.
Bread baking takes from 45 to 60 minutes, according to size of loaf. Bread
should be placed about three inches from bottoni ot oven, after oven has
been heated 10 minutes. Reduce heat one-half when bread goes in About
five minutes before bread is done, turn oflf oven heat and let it finish baking.
For loaf cake baking, use bright tin pan Heat oven two minutes with
both burners. Fill cake pan about half (allowance for rising) Put cake
on rack second from bottom and turn out one burner. Reduce the remaining
burner one-fourth. Cook straight through with this heat Call our demon-
strators for other directoins about cooking fruit cakes and pound cakes.
To broil steak, heat oven 10 minutes, put meat on wire rack as near
under flame as possible without burning and turn every ^wo or ^hree min-
utes. Leave broiler oven door open to keep meat from catching fire, bteak
should not be broiled beyond point where it is fluffy and juicy.
A neglected gas range is like anything else; it becomes defective. Proper
care is important.
Keep the drip tray clean by washing frequently. Now and then scrub
it with a stifl brush and some good sand soap.
Clean too burners in two quarts hot water to one tablespoon of soda,
or in a strong solution of lye and hot water. Dry by lighting gas a minute.
\fter oven is used, leave door open to dry air inside and prevent rvist
While range is warrn wipe burners and oven with cheesecloth moistened
with three^parts cookikg oil and one part kerosene, or with unsalted grease.
