Senator William Lindsay of Frankfort who made a short speech in this city in October 190G in which he predicted that if the farmers would stick together they would meet with the success that they have achieved Justice Ed ORear who was the recipient of much at tention from the crowd in the lobby and Representative Windy Bill Thompson of Spencer county who came in for his share of attention Took

BUNG DISTRIBUTED I Reports Show That in Most of the Counties Tobacco is Pack ed For Shipment The District Board of the Burley Tobacco Society met in this city at 1030 oclock Tuesday morning m regular session Most of the day was consumed in hearing reports from the different counties These reports show that in most of the counties in the Burley District the tobacco has been packed and is ready for ship ment while the remainder the work of packing has been hindered on ac count of dry weather Work at all points is being pushe a as rapidly as possible and with favorable weather for the next three weeks the 19067 crop will be dis posed ofSpeculators Are Checked Some trouble is reported in some of the counties from holders of pool ed tobacco selling their certificate to speculators The Boards of Control of these counties have knowledge of the situation and say that they have put a stop to the practice The contract signed by the Execu tive Committee when the big sale was made to the American Tobacco Com pany and the independent buyers was read and ratified by the full commit teeWhen the first big sales of the 1906 crop were made 10 per cent of the money was held in the different banks asan equalization fund in case it be came necessary to sell the remainder of the crop at less than graded prices As the whole crop has been sold at full prices this was not needed and fourfifths of this money is teady for disbursement which the commit tee has ordered done and the money is being distributed as rapidly as possible The board is in session and the manner of distributing the money will be determined It is believed that the money will be paid out from time to time as the tobacco is de livered instead of waiting and dis tributing the cash at one time What to do in regard to the 1909 crop as yet has not been discussed and there is a disposition among a great many of delegates to take no steps in that direction now as they say the meeting this week is one of jollification and congratula tion FARMERS CLUB TO MEET SATURDAY Interesting and Attractive Program Has Been Arranged The Farmers Club will hold its regular monthly meeting at the courthouse Saturday afternoon at two

volunteer army measure was advocated by President Roosevelt in a special message sent to congress and the draft of the bill accompany ing the message was introduced in the senate by Mr Cullom The pres ident says the bill is intended to replace the present law which was placed on the statute books piecemeal and hurriedly partly on the eve of the war with Spain and partly after hostilities had actually com declaring the present law to be faulty and wholly inadequate to a speedy and proper organization of a volunteer force the president says the bill proposed which was drawn under the supervision of the chief of staff of the army has the nearty approval of the war department The message says further It is designed to afford the complete machinery by which should we be con fronted with a foreign war the executive power could proceed at once to transform enthusiastic and patri otic citizens into efficient and organized soldiers Happily there Is at present no cloud upon our horizon but that very fact affords us the very best opportunity to proceed with deliberation and care in the prepara tion of laws adequate and indispens able for our possible war needs It is pointed out by the president that the proposed measure would not call for a dollars expenditure during the years of peace and its enactment into law now would merely be to place at the disposal of the executive power machinery whereby should war threaten the means to wage it could be swiftly brought into being The bill is elastic under its provisions a force of 2000000 men could be raided as well as one of 50000 Bills Introduced In Congress Washington Dec 9In both house and senate a number of bills were in troduced and in the house a number were sent to conference among them being one providing for a new immi gration station in Boston For the first time during the present con gress there was a call of the committees of the house but no measure was reported by any of them The miscellaneous work of the senate consisted in the main of the reference in executive session of about 1500 recess nominations which were Sent to the senate by the president and the adoption of resolu tions of regret on account of the death of members of the house who have passed away since adjournment SUSTAINS ROOSEVELT Solicitor General Says Panama State ments Are Absolutely True Washington Dec 9

and asserts that the 40000000 was paid by check on the United States treas ury to J P Morgto Company and not to the French government as the president claimed I n To Arrest Kieran New J York Dec 9The

and the railroads which broadly ilIsaid tQ be whether the plow follows the locomotive or the locomotive therplow was joined at the annual ban quet of the Illinois Manufacturers association here W C Brown senior vice president of the New York Cen tral lines delivered an elaborate plea for the participation of the railroads In the countrys prosperity while Ohio C Barber president of the Dia mond Match company vehemently asserted that Instead of contemplat ing increase freight rates which perhaps ultimately go through some American heiress to enrich foreign noblemen the roads should be cal culating how great a reduction they should in fairness make to shippers Mr Barber in his address referred several times to Mr Brown declaring that the latter in his attempts to educate the public to a belief that higher rates are necessary perhaps Is taking his cue from the late P T Barnum who said the public was fond of being humbugged William H Vanderbilt said Mr Barber who succeeded his father the Commodore with the latter brain and ability recognized tha public with the words the public be damned and the public has been damned eversince Mr Barber declared that at the beginning I of the panic last winter the railroads discharged a greater pro portion of men than any other industry and accentuated the results of the panic by cutting off repairs and purchases in every direction and tried to blame conditions on President Roosevelt whom they accused of creating them Mr Browns address presented a careful review of the increase in the price of every commodity within the last ten years save alone freight rates which he said had lagged behind He said that if the expend itures of the railroads for 1907 could have been made at prices obtaining in 1897 the railroads of the country would have saved 676000000 He stated that during the past ten months the railroads have been mak ing the most painstaking investigation and analysis of their own condiation ever made He confirmed the charge made a year ago that from 1898 to 1908 freight rates had been advanced on 897 articles but he add ed that in the same time they had been reduced on 876 articles and that the net result was a reduction in rates of 1069 per cent y Austrian Boycott In Turkey Vienna Dec 9It is reported that the Austrian boycott at Constantino pie is increasing 5000 Turkish firms having been added to the

South and Advocates Education as Means of Correcting EvilsAdvocates Laws Prescribing Qualification For Suffrage In Line With Fifteenth Amendment to Pre vent Domination r New York Dec Presidentelect William HTaft was the guest of 5 honor at the Banquet of the North Carolina society of New York After paying a tribute to North Carolina which he said presented an conditionsCin the south the public spirit of its citizens progress of its industries and the charming companionship wlilch the northerner always found there the speaker pointed out that the laws were made for the north and south and the functions of the government extended from the Cana dian border to the Gulf of Mexico and led up to this question What Js it that sets the south apart and takes from the southern people the responsibilities which the members of a republic ought to share in respect to the conduct of the national government He continued Why is it that what is done at Washington seems to be the work of the north and west and not of the south Should this state of affairs continue These are the questions that force themselves on those of us concerned with the government and who are most anxious to have a sol id united country of whose will the l course of the government shall be an Intelligent interpretation and expres- sIon We can not answer these ques tions as the historian would and we can not explain the situation as it is but I dont think we can justify or excuse a continuance of it Looking back into the past of course the ex planation of the difference between the south and other two sections was In the institution of slavery It is of no purpose to point out that early in the history of the country the north was as responsible for bringing slaves here as the south because we are not concerned with whose fault it was that there was such an insti tution as slavery I am not going to rehearse the painful history of reconstruction or what followed it I come at once to the present condition of things stat ed from a constitutional and political Standpoint And that is this That jm all southern states it is possible fry election laws prescribing proper qualification for the suffrage which square with the fifteenth amendment and which shall be equally administered as between the black and white races to prevent entirely the possi bility of a domination of southern state county or municipal govern ment by an Ignorant electorate white or black Mr Taft referred to the trials of the reconstruction period which ac centuated the trials of the past and stow return of prosperity to the outh following the civil strife as further agencies that helped to keep alive the feeling engendered by that controversy and quoted statistics to show the marvelous growth in the agrIcultural resources and manufac turing industries of the south Continuing he said The Democratic party has not preserved invio late its traditional doctrine as to states rights and other issues and has for the time adopted new doc trines of possibly doubtful economic truth and wisdom Southern men ad hering to the party and the name find themselves through the influence of tradition and the fear of restora tion of conditions which are now im possible supporting a platform and candidate whose political and economic theories they distrust Under these conditions there was in the last campaign and there is today through out the south among many of its most influential citizens an impa tience a nervousness and a restlessness in voting for one ticket and in rejoicing in the success of another Now I am not one of those who are disposed to criticise or emphasize the inconsistency of the position in which these gentlemen find them selves I believe it would be wiser If all who sympathize with one party and its principles were to vote Its ticket but I can readily understand the weight and inertia of the tradi tion and social consideration that make them hesitate I believe that the movement away from political solidity has started and ought to be encouraged and I think one way to encourage it is to have the south understand that the attitude of the north and the Republican party to ward it is not one of hostility or criticism or opposition political or oth v erwise that they believe in the maintenance of the fifteenth amend lment but that as already explained y they do not deem that amendment to be inconsistent with the souths ob taining and maintaining what it re b J gards as Its politicavsa froias domination orn fgnPFpt a We believe t ewofthe race question In the his largely a matter of llnjii tTJiaWinia t thorough education Solve aomtheln ers who have given expression to their thoughts seem to the only solution of the negro question is his migration to Africa but to me such a proposition is utterly fatuous The negro is essential to the south in order that it may have proper la bor Their ancestors were brought here against their will They have no country but this They know no flag but hours They wish to live un der it and are willing to die for it They are Americans The recent election has made it probable that I shall become more or less responsible for the policy of the next presidential administration and I improve this opportunity to say that nothing would give me greater pride because nothing would give me more claim to the gratitude of my fellow citizens if I could so di rect that policy in respect to the southern states as to convince its In telligent citizens of the desire of the administration to aid them in worK ing out satisfactorily the serious problems before them and of bringing them and their northern fellow citizens closer and closer in sympa thy and point of view Expect Castro Today Santander Spain Dec The prospect of President Castros arrival here today is causing somethiig of a flutter A dozen foreign co respondents have come to Santander as well as several Venezuelan foreign representatives including Dr F A Risquez consul general at Madrid The Spanish government is arrang ing a suitable official salutation but as President Castros visit is infor mal it will probably be of a very modest character WILL NOT INTERFERE Church Federation Votes Down School Dismissal Proposition Philadelphia Dec A resolution which had for a feature a that public schools be dismissedone afternoon each week for the purpose of allowing the children to attend religious services and receive instruction in their own churches precipi tated a lively debate at the session of the federal council of the churches of Christ in America The resolution which was defeated was opposed by Bishops Cranston and Neely of the Methodist Episcopal church who said that the federal council should not take a stand with those organiza tions which claim the right to interfere with the religious freedom of the public schools Will Demand Investigation Washington Dec The Democrats of the house are planning to demand an investigation of the pur chase of the Panama canal property and in conformity with this program Representative RaIney of Illinois pre sented a resolution directing the speaker to appoint a committee of five to ascertain how

from progressing says the Agri cultural Southwest Too much care cannot be exercised by the people in the selection of town officers There Is no reason why the affairs of a municipality should not be condueted along as sound lines as are the affairs of a successful business concern Few farmers realize how much their Interests are affected by the activity ofiflie town near which they live Ev erg farmer should be as much inter ested in the doings of the townspeople as the residents of the place He is one of the supporters of its business Institutions its schools and its public institutions in general and he should ieel that the interests of the towns people are his own interests Too often Just the opposite feelings are manifest The farmers look upon the residents of the towns as enemies the merchants as bloodsuckers and a class that live off the farmers This is not the case It is a narrow view to take The merchant is entitled to his small per centage of profit which his business af

demands Back number merchants are a detriment to any place Business con ditions are gradually changing There is progress all along the line and the merchant who fails to keep abreast of the procession

home attractive to the boys and girls The way to keep dollars at home is to make home at tractive to the dollars There is no other way Our local merchants should make their trade attractive This means that they should play up their goods Justaa a newspaper plays up a story Good can be played up In many ways Advertising In the local paper and dis playing in the store window are two good ways Another good way is to mike the store attractive inside and outside Another is to convince cus tomers that they are getting honest values Still another is to have the thing the customer wants make him feel that you are trying to serve him find accommodate him and not merely trying to benefit yourself Yet another and most important of all is to organize for the betterment of the community arouse public

tools For the sim ple reason that it doubles the life and easy working of them says the Agricultural Gazette of New South Wales This being so what oil is the best to use and what is the best way to apply it- Without going chemically into the reason why which would take too long to explain it has been found from centuries of experience that like the old carpenters rule of wood to wood iron to iron in working tools the rule in oiling is vegetable oil to vegetable matter animal oil to animal matter metal or stone Of the vegetable oils we have raw and boiled linseed and castor from plants of the animal neat or bul locksfoot neat stood for bullock in AngloSaxon oil and fat or tallow These are the only ones we need con cern ourselves with the others are of no use to us The raw linseed oil is pale yellow In color and runs easily as water if dark yellow and sticky it has been adulter ated with cheap fish oil The boiled oil is naturally much more sticky than the raw a lot of the moisture been driven off in the boiling also darker in color than the raw The difference in the use of these oils is that the raw oil penetrates the woodfibers right through and only forms a skin outside when these wood fibers can absorb no more of it The boiled linseed on the other hand is too viscous or thick to enter the wood fibers and makes a skin on the out side at once Thus you can see that if you are oiling or painting wood for yourself paint is only white or red lead mixed up with oil and coloring matter use the best raw linseed and if doing a cheap job for someone else use only the boiled the wood will soon decay as the boiled oil skin wears off but that is none of your businessNow apply these oils First the linseed For oiling handles of any sort take an empty golden syrup or jam tin see that it is perfectly clean and dry and half fill it with your raw linseed stand your handle or handles in it and leave them there for a couple of days Then reverse them in the pot and after a couple of days take them out and give them a rub over with a raw linseed oily rag They are now fit for use will spring well and stand the weather with if the wood in them is any impunityI You oil planes differently tryer jacks and smoother you first remove the wedge and iron Now block the bottom of the opening or mouth of the well as carpenters call it securely with putty and pour raw linseed oil into it till almost full Leave it for a couple of days and you will find that the thirsty beech has drunk up all the oil Fill her up again and she will soak up about half of that When you find she will drink no more pour the rest back into the drum remove the putty clean and she Is ready for work If you want a pretty plane rub the sides and top well with the oil also she will then look as if she had been polished If likely to get rough treatment give her sides and top a coat of boiled oil all over this saves planes won derfully For other planes leave them in a billy of oil for a couple of days first removing the iron the wedge wants oiling as well Then rub them on the sides and they are ready for work Iron planes of course you do not oil at all except the bed or wearing surface You must keep on giving this a dab with raw linseed or preferably neatsfoot oil or you will not be able to work it at all To apply neatsfoot You must keep a little oil can full of it on the bench when your oil stone will not bite or your saws cling or feel a bit rusty flirt a few drops on as needed Grease or fat will answer the same purpose but is not as good The Minds Engineer Men believe readily

he caught a chain hanging from a girder The momentum of his body suddenly arrested nearly wrenched his grip loose but he was a strong man and kept his hold While swinging in midair suspended over the raging river and unable to improve his perilous position an 4utomobile came chugging down the The hapless man shouted for help but he could not be seen from the bridge and his cries were drowned by the noise of the mo tor and the sound of the river A minutes after the automobile had pass ed a carriage drove across the bridge Again he cried out for help but in The awful strain on arms and fingers

iniquitiof of Cs Kentucky have become so accustomed to the burden that they do not real ize how iniquitous it is The Constitution requires a gent eral property tax that is it requires all classes of property to be taxed alike for all purposes The deposit in bank which may not be yielding i any interest whatever is taxed the same as the real estate renting fo a good income The mortgage on the real estate is taxed at its full value and the real estate on whiell the mortgage is an incumbrance is taxed at its full value thus consti tuting double taxation Jifor Stfresources of the State are properly developed for such bonds usually pay but from I four or live per cent interest The present laws are inducements fft dishonesty Forif a man be lion st most of his income is taken from rein If

voice screamed in almost inarticulate rage r Let me go damn ye or Ill knife ye Good heavens I cried Let her y Barkhouse Its Mother Borton Mother Borton freed herself with a tScious shake and called down the wrath of Heaven and hell on the stal wart guard Youre the blackhearted spawn of e sewer rats to take a respectable woman like a bag of meal cried Mother Borton indignantly with a andIyoufibr me And this is the thanks I gtt pmye Come In I said unlocking the for and lighting up my room You ii be as angry as you like in here tdit wont hurt anything r Mother Borton stormed a bit and en sullenly walked in and took a lair Silence fell on her as she4 crossed the threshold but she glower red on us with fierce eyes Its quite an agreeable surprise t- ose you I ventured as cheerfully as I agtildas she made no move to speak My followers looked awkward and un emfortable At the sound of my voice Mother JStortons bent brows relaxed a little f If youd send these fellows out I betterICertainly Just wait in the hall boys and close the doortPorter and Barkhouse ambled out and Mother Borton gave her chair a Mtch that brought us face to face- I reckon you dont think rcome on xvisit cf perliteness she said sharp ly after a brief silence- I murmured something about being 1 glad to entertain her at any time Nonsense she sniffed Im a vile tIl woman that the likes of you would Jliever put eyes on twice if it wasnt 2tXJ4 tEdl1J for your businessnone knows it bet ter than me I dont know why I should jfit myself out to help yeHer tone Md a touch of pathos under its hard BessI know why I said a little touched Its because you like me She turned a softened eye on me Youre right she said almost ten derly with a flash of womanly feeling on her seamed and evil face Ive took at fancy to ye and no mistake and Id risk something to help ye lOr knew you would I said heartily And thats what I come to do she SKid with a sparkle of pleasure in her eye Ive come to warn ye New dangers I inquired cheer tJ11IY My prudence suggested that I Ited better omit any mention of the warning from Dicky Nahl The same ones said Mother Bort tIashortly only more of em What is the latest plot I asked Fyely as I fancied that my light nner grated on my strange guest I dont know she said slowly But you know something I segued Maybe you know what I know bet fer than I knows it myself growled Mother Borton with a significant Wince If resigned myself to await her hu aorNot at all said I carelessly I 1tmy know that youve come to tell me same thing and that youll tell it in iwor own good time Its fine to see that youve learned LItt to drive a woman she returned l with grim irony Its something to liaow at your age i I smiled sympathetically upon her and she continued ul might as well tell ye the whole e Tit though I reckon Hce to be slit over it as notIIll never breathe a wed fervently 0d trust yeshe said Well there was a gang across the street tonight across from my place I meanand that sneaking Tom Terrill and Darby Meeker and I reckon all the rest o- fti waS there And they was run t i nin back and forth to my place and adrinkin a good deal and the more they drinks the louder they talks And I hears Darby Meeker say to one feller Well git him sure and I listens with all my ears though pre tenfiin to see nothin Well fix it this time he said the Old Uns got his thinkin cap ori And I takes in every word and by one thing and another I picks up that theres new schemes afoot to trap ye They was asayin as it might be an idee to take ye as you come out of Knapps tonight How did they know I was at Knapps I asked somewhat sur prised though I had little reason to be when I remembered the number of spies who might have watched me Why Dicky Nahl told em said Mother Borton He was with the gang and sings it out as pretty as you pleaseThis gave me something new to think about but I said nothing Well she continued they says at last that wont do fer itll git em into trouble and I reckon theyre argy fying over their schemes yit But one thing I finds out Mother Borton stopped and looked at me anxiously Well I said impatiently what was it Theyre asayin as how if youre killed the one as you knows onll have to git some one else to look after the boy and mebbe he wont be so smart about foolin them Thats an excellent idea said L If they only knew that I was the oth er fellow they could see at once what a bright scheme they had hit upon Maybe they aint agoin to do it said Mother Borton Theres a heap o things said over the liquor that dont git no further but youll be a fool if you dont look out Now do as I tell you You just keep more men around you Keep eyes in the back of your head and if you sea theres agoin to be trouble jest you shoot first and ax questions about it afterward They talked of gutting you down on the waterfront or up in Chinatown with some bogus message and said how easy it would be to dispose of you without leaving clues behind em Now dont you sleep here without three or four men on guard and dont you stir round nights with less than four Send Porter out to git two more men and tell him to look sharp and see if the coasts clear outside I reckon Ill slide out if no ones look in Ive got some men on the next floor I said I thought it would be just as well to have a few around in case of emergencies Ill have two of them out and send Porter to recon noiter Who told you to git your men to gether A little idea of my own Youve got some sense after all The reinforcements were soon ready to take orders and Porter returned to bring word that no suspicious person was in sight in the street I reckon Id best go then said Mother Borton I dont want no knife in me jest yit but if theres no one to see me Im all right- I pressed Mother Bortcn to take two of my men as escort but she sturdily refused Theyd know something was up I was to go around that way and Id be a bloody ghost as soon as they could ketch me alone she said Well good nightor is it mornin And do take keer of yourself dearie And so saying Mother Borton muffled herself up till it was hard to tell whether she was man or woman and trudged away- Whatever designs were brewing in the nightmeeting of the conspirators they did not appear to concern myim mediate peace of body The two fol lowing days were spent in quiet In spite of warnings I began to believe that no new plan of action had been determined on and I bent my steps to the office that had been furnished by Doddridge Knapp I hardly expected to meet the King of the Street He had I supposed returned to the city but he had set Wednesday as the day for resuming operations in the market and I did not think that he would be found here on Monday The room was cold and cheerless and the dingy books in lawcalf ap peared to gaze at me in mute protest as I looked about me The doors that separated me from Doddridge Knapps room were shut and locked What was behind them I wondered Was there anything in Doddridge Knapps room that bore on the mystery of the hidden boy or would give the clue to the murder of Henry Wilton If vengeance was to be mine if Doddridge Knapp was to pay the penalty of the gallows for the death of Henry Wilton it must be by the evidence that I should wrest from him and his tools I had just secured the key that would fit the first door I had taken the impression of the lock and had it made without definite purpose but now I was ready to act With a sinking heart but a clear bead 1 put the key cautiously to the lock and gently turned it The key fitted perfectly and the bolt flew back J j a L as it made the circle I opened the doof into the middle room The sec and door as I expected was closed Would the same key fit the second lock or must I wait to have another madeI advanced to the second door and was about to try the key when a Sound from behind it turned my Mood to that door from the room I had supposed to be empty I heard a groan I stood as if petrified and in the broad daylight that streamed in at the window with the noise and rush of Clay street ringing in my ears I felt my hair rise as though I had come on a ghost I listened a minute or more but heard nothing To be continued A FATAL CARD How It Killed the Religious Depart ment of the London Times When the Thunderer decided to de vote one or more of its columns daily to an ecclesiastical department all Eng land sat up and admired The man chosen to conduct the column was a rather elderly and occasionally con vivial younger son who for years had contributed church news to the paper but had never dreamed that he should attain the extreme honor of actually becoming one of the editors of the Thunderer that world shaking power The promotion went to his head made him dizzy He saw himself a power in the land one who perhaps would make or unmake ecclesiastical dignI- taries On the morning of the announcement of the new venture the new incumbent came into town on his usual train from Surbiton his head swimming with delight At the foot of Ludgate hill he met an old friend whom he forthwith led into the Green Dragon bar Arthur said he we really must celebrate What dyou suppose has happened Oh youd never never dream it Look What d you say to that old boy That was a newly engraved card on which appeared this announcement MR CECIL APPLEBY BOTSFORD HETHERINGTON Ecclesiastical Editor The Thunderer My word old chap its the most de lightful news Ive heard in an age cried his friend Lets have just one more Heres to you Success Before he reached Temple Bar the ecclesiastical

Very well then You may drive me to Lambeth palace At the palace a focrmnn took one of the new cards and conducted the own er of It to a pleasant reception room where he snuggled in a vast chair and instantly went to sleep The archbishop of Canterbury hap pened to be very busy with his chap lain but at the sight of the card he felt sure that something of importance was at hand and sent his chaplain to Inquire That tall slender dark ascet ic gentleman strode slowly to the re ception room and after a slight but decorous struggle succeeded in waking the caller His grace said the chaplain begs to know how he can serve the Thun dererTell his grace responded Mr Bots fordHetherington that Im awfly busy thinking and Im sorry 1 shant be able to see him till tomorrow Very sorryForthwith he relapsed into slumber Two sturdy men deposited him in his fast and well appointed cab and order ed the driver to deliver him at the office of the Thunderer There the ec clesiastical editor and the

DESSERT DISHES FOR THOSE WHO LIKE THE QUINCE Sweet Apples Mixed with the Fruit Add FlavorChopped Preserved Quinces Served with Boiled CustardQuince Tart Quince chips are a thick preserve of tender quinces and sugar syrup A little invention may vary this by adding fruit that does not disturb the flavor When cooked all alone the quince flavor is quite strong and sweet apples seem created to borrow an equal flavor from the quince A very few quince preserves with ice cream is a dainty dish and a spoonful served with a mound of whipped cream and gelatin is delicious The Housekeeper suggests new ways for the fruit and one of these is a trifle made with chopped preserved qunces Arrange them in a deep glass dish with alternate layers of macaroon or sponge cake crumbs then pour over a rich boiled custard made with the yolks of six eggs three table spoonfuls of sugar three cupfuls of milk and half teaspoonful of almond extract Pour the custard over while it is still warm and set aside until very cold Just before serving heap over the top the whites of two eggs whipped to a very stiff snow with two table spoonfuls of powdered sugar and two tablespoonfuls of chopped blanched almonds Garnish with candied orange carpels or candied cherries- A quince tart is either a pie or pudding if one prefers it so called but it is equally delicious under either name Press one pint of quince pulp through a colander add to it one cupful of granulated sugar the beaten yolks of four eggs and one pint of milk Line a shallow pudding dish with puff paste and pour in the quince mixture Twist a strip of the pastry around the edge of the dish for a border and bake in a moderate oven for about half an hour or until done Whip the whites of the eggs to a very stiff snow with four trMespoonfuls of powdered sugar heap it over the top and let it brown very delicately in a slow oven Serve cold with whipped cream Tapioca cooked in water until per fectly clear and thick to jelly makes another pleasing foundation for a quince dish Sweeten the tapioca to taste and flavor with a little nutmeg and lemon juice Place It in layers in a buttered pudding dish with chopped preserved quinces cover the top with the whites of two eggs whipped to a stiff snow with two tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar and let it brown deli cately in a slow oven The syrup should be drained from the fruit and used as a sauce Whipped cream is also a delicious accompaniment This pudding is excellent either hot or cold Swiss Roast Take a round steakfrom two to two and a half inches in thickness and pound into it as much flour as it will take using the edge of a heavy piate for that purpose When the flour has been pounded into both sides put the meat into an iron skil let with some lard and brown it on both sides Then cover it with water adding onions enough to flavor and a whole ripe tomato or an equal quan tity of canned tomatoes when fresh vegetables are not in season Cover tightly and cook two hours adding more water as necessary during the time Just before the meat is done salt and pepper to taste Delicious as this dish is when served hot it is also nice when cold To Clean Aigrettes Make a soap suds
