THE OLD VS. THE NEW
IN VEGETABLE COOKERY
By CAROLINE B. KINO
Culinary Expert and Lecturer on
mHE old-fashioned way of
cooking vegetables was to
PVfeSl 'mmerse them In quantl-
|ASew| ties of water and boll
them madly for a longer
time than was at all necessary.
Then we poured off the surplus
water with the minerals, salts and
other qualities extracted from the
vegetables, and served them with
their * tastelessness disguised by
highly seasoned sauces.
Now we know that most vege-
tables, especially the delicato,
sweet-juiced varieties, require little
water in cooking, and also that
over-cooking Is ruinous both to their
flavor and nutritious qualities. We
have studied ways to develop both
the flavor and food value of these
wholesome products. We have dis-
covered for one very important
thing, that sugar in correct
amounts added while cooking in-
tensifies the flavor of both fresh
asd canned vegetables, and is all
instances increases their value as
a source of human energy.
Corn Pudding Is a welcome dish
on any table provided It Is prepared
with due regard for the fact that
success depends entirely upon
whether the mistress of the kitchen
is able to bring out the natural
sweetness of the chief ingredient.
'To two cups of canned corn,| add
one canned pimento and one small
green pepper, shredded coarsely,
half a small onion grated, two well-
beaten eggs, two tablespoons of
sugar, one teaspoon of salt, one-
quarter teaspoon of pepper and
paprika, two tablespoons of flour,
one teaspoon of - baking powder,
and one cup of milk. Mix all the
ingredients together and add two
tablespoons of melted butter. Turn
Into a well-buttered casserole, and
bake covered, in a moderate oven,
half an hour. Then remove the
cover and bring to a delicate
Eggplant en' Caaserwle—Pare a
large eggplant and cut it ifi thick
slices, then-in cubes. Cook in just
enough boiling water to cover, anl
drain well when finished. Cut a
small onion In slices and cook un-
til tender in a tablespoar of butter.
Add the eggplant, a cup of toma-
toes. or more if the mixture seems
too dry, half a cup of water, two
tablespoons of sugar, one-half tea-
spoon of salt and one-quarter tea-
spoon of pepper. Cover and sim-
mer slowly In a moderate oven
half an hour.
Baked Winter 8quaah—Wash the
squash. Cut and remove seeds and
pulp. Then cut the squash in
squares and place in "a pan con-
taining a little water. Place in a
moderate oven and bake until the
pulp is soft, basting occasionally
with a little hot water and butter.
When nearly done sprinkle thickly
with brown sugar a^d dot with
butter. Finish baking and serve a
square to each person.
Sauted Parsnips—Cook parsnips
until tender In boiling water to
which one-half teaspoon o! salt and
one teaspoon of sugar has been
added. Drain and scrape of the
skin. Cut in halves lengthwise and
sprinkle with sugar. Saute In hot
drippings to a rich brown tint

ABOUT THE BOY WHO LEFT
THE FARM FOR THE CITY
A farmer boy went to the city, all
against his father's wishes. The old
man wanted the boy to help him on
the farm and predicted disaster for
him in the big town.
Evidently the father was wrong, for
in his first letter home the boy wrote:
"I have a fine position with a good
company; that's a feather in my cap."
In his second letter he said: "I am
breaking into society and have been
put up for a good club; that's another
feather in mp cap." Then along
about the third or ffturth letter he
wrote: "I am engaged to the most
popular girl in the city; and that's
still another feather in niy cap."
Then there followed no more letters
for a tong time, but one day the father
received a wire message collect, say-
ing: "Please telegraph me railroad
fare home; I'm broke."
To which the father wired back:
^Nothing doing! Take the feathers
out of your cap, stick them on your
back and fly home."

4-H CLUB BOY WINS
PROFITS THRU SCIENCE
Scientific methods of farming netted
Dallas Wingate, 4-H club boy of
Monroe County, Missouri, nearly
$500 on three calves, according to
County Agent E. S. Matteson, Mon-
Dallas bought the three calves,
two Shorthorns weighing 500 pounds
each anW a Hereford weighing 390
pounds for $135. A little more than
six months later, the three calves
$16.25, $16.50 and $16.75 per hundred,
were sold on the St. Louis market for
leaving a net return of $427.50 after
the marketing costs were paid.
The total cost of the feed for
the calves for the 198 days was
$229.63. The daily gain -during
this period was almost 2 1-2 pounds
each, or a total gain of 493 pounds.
The total feed consumed by the
calves was 158 bushels of corn, 17 1-2
bushels of oats, 550 pounds of bran,
630 pounds of linseed meal, 812
pounds of beans, and 500 pounds of
hay. To the cost of feed must be ad-
ded the original cost of $135, $5.80 for
interest, and $5.50 for hauling. This
made the total charges against the
calves $375.93 while their selling price
was $427.50, leaving a net profit' of
$51.57 without considering the pork.
Three pigs, purchased for $14, fol-
lowed the calves the first three months
and were later sold for $30.15. Their
feeding cost amounted to $3.15, leav-
ing a profit of $13. The next day
three more pigs were purchased. This
lot weighed 223 pounds when bought
and 620 pounds when sold. Their
selling price was $68.20. When the
feed costs were deducted from this
price, a total profit of $17.70 was
credited to the calves.
Thus, the total profit for the
calves, including the gains on the
two lots of pigs, was raised to $82.27.
The calves were first started on a
ration of corn, oats, bran, linseed
meal, with soybean hay for roughage.
Gradually the grain was increased
until the calves were on full feed.
Dallas cared for his calves accord-
ing to the instructions of the Missouri
College of Agriculture through the
4-H Club during the entire period.
His father and County Agent E. S.
Matteson also aided the progress of
the calves by their helpful advice.

LEFT HERE 20 YEARS AGO
AND COMES BACK TO VISIT
Three hundred and nine persons
were killed in Londonn streets during
a period of only three months of last
year. A very deplorable record.
Mr. A. C. Bradford of Grand Prai-
rie, Texas, has been in Madisonville
the past week visiting the old home
town. He is one of this county'3
early settlers, having come to Madi-
son county about the year 1877 and
lived here for 40 years. About 20
years ago he left here and for a
number of years has been living in
Dallas county. Mr. Bradford was 70
years old Thursday of last week,
April 18th, but rather we should say
70 years young, for he is a very en-
ergetic man and still follows the car-
penter business, and no one would ev-
er take him to be of so advanced an
age. Said he might remain around
Madisonville for a few days and then
sojourn to points in northern Louis-
ana'to visit some old familiar place?
of his youth. He well remembers
Madisonville in the early days, and
says this country was a vast thicket
when he first came here, and once a
cow got in that thicket it was just
about impossible to get her out.
Wild turkey, he said, were almost
everywhere in abundance.
SUGGESTS A SINGLE CLOCK
TO TICK TIME FOR WORLD
A fifth of a second ia of no vast
importance to the average citizen, or
even to a commuter, but to astrono-
mers and other scientists it may make
a big difference. To overcome this dif-
ficulty, according to reports from
Germany, a noted inventor has devel-
oped a plan whereby one clock will
beat time for the entire earth. It is
proposed that from a central obser-
vatory the ticks of this, master elec-
tric clock be sent instantaneously by
radio to all countries, giving a single
accurate time. At present each of
the countries set their clocks by ra-
dio and telegraph from a national ob-
servatory, and there is often a dis-
crepancy between different countries.
In the plan proposed, television de-
vices would be used to synchronize
all clocks with the master timepiece.
With this system in operation, the
world's clocks need never be more
than orie-hundred-thousandth of a sec-
ond apart or different in time.
