heart of the nation has changed
little since the pood old d-iys in New
England when the hardy pioneers

rude but bounteous boards and prais-
ed the Almighty for a good harvest
and the opportunity to live upon a free
soil. Their defendants maintained
the customs of Thanksgiving in their
original spirit Modern Innovations

supreme in the hearts of the people to-
day. In the bis cities some uiav sit-
down in palatial hotels or fashionable
restaurants to enjoy all kinds of lux-
uries with French namos and prepar-
ed under the-superintendence of a pro-
fessional chef. But no matter how
many costly courses are served at
such a meal or how many dollars are
charged per cover. It never tastes as
good to the average American as the
mince and pumpkin pies and roast
turkey and cranberry sauce made in
old fashioned kitchens In the old
fashioned way at the old homestead.
How the mouth waters at the very
thought of those pumpkin pies that
grandma made! Grandma used to say:
"Now my boy. will you have mince
pumpkin or apple?" And. not being

Cooking With Sunlight.
Aum cooking roasting and boiling by
sunlight instead of coal or gas has
been going on for 300 years. There
are sun stoves that roast a sirloin:or
poll a soup to perfection. They are
only used however by scientists. A
sun stove consists mainly of a mirror
a spnerical mirror on a lolnt Thero
la also a reflector. The place for pot
or plate is so situated that the mirror's
rays can be focused on It ncctiMtolr.

have boiled n gallon of water hi twen

and poached eggs In fifteen minutes
quite as good time as the ordinary flro
makes. An odd thlmr
' roasted by sun rays Is that it has an
unpleasant tate. This Is avoided by
the insertion of a plate of yellow glass
between meat and mirror. In all solar
stoves the sheet of yellow glass flg-

CARMACK A GREAT WIT.
grandma knowing a boy's failing
would cut those "little" pieces big
enough to fill a very empty stomach.
Nowadays mince pie is looked upon
as rather a strenuous diet for a people
who are gettiug dyspeptic in their hur-
ry to get rich. But grandma's mint-e
pies never gave a boy a stomach ache
unless of course he ate so much that
his poor little abdominal organs were
stretched to the bursting point. And
some way a boy's stomach will take in
a remarkable quantity of asserted food
products before that point Is attained.
Tt seems t be especially elastic at
Thanksgiving time. How It bannens
that a youngster of lwc-a or twelve can
eat as much at Thanksgiving as a big
200 pound man coukl On ordinary oc-
casions has never ben satisfactorily
explained. For instance how Is It
possible for one boy to put In his stom-
ach at one sitting and without a disas-
trous nftnrmnth two drumsticks with
lots of dresst.g. potatoes amd turnips
trad onions and celery and cranberry
sauce ad libitum marmalade and
quince Jelly. lemon .and apple and
xalnce and apple pie. cheese apples
ad oranges nuts and cider? But
anybody who has attended the reun-
ions Jit th nlil hnmoctnnil Imniro t.o
fiis Is no extraordinary feat for a
fiealthy youngster. The multimillion-
aire whose digestive organs have been
Impaired In the feverish race for the
almlghtv dollar wishes at the Thanks-
giving feast thct he could eat like that
again. But. alas there is a fatal an-
tagonism between the ways of the
elmp life a'nd of high finance and he
.who chooses the latter must forfeit the
fenmWer but more satisfying pleasures
whicji go with a mode of living "based
on the old fashioned plan.
Really now what made the monlc
served at the old homestead so good?
was It the cooking alone or was there
methlng else some peculiar appe-
tizer that one does not have In these
days? To be sure the mothers and
grandmothers on the farms were
splendid cooks and they are still. Ou
tij& subject they can't learn much
from the Boosevelt farm life commis-
sion. But If they were to servo exact-
ly the same food mince and pumpkin
pies and all. cooked in exactly the
same way at some other place than
the ' M Mmestend prolmbly the pecul-
iar flavor of olden time would be gone.
The cooking had a good deal to do
with it but It wasn't nil. There was
Jhe henlthy farm life lucky are those
that have It still and there was the
vitality tha chased away the germs
folks havo to i!ght so much if they
live in e'tles. And then. It was the old
homestead. Nowhere else could any-
thing be so good. The man or woman

to say to the act which penalizes any
person who erects a house without at-

never been repealed.

Austin Texas Nov. 28 Attorney
General R. V. Davidson will ask the
next Legislature to allow him two ad
ditional assistants to carry out the
work of his ofllce.
In his estimate of the appropriation
necessary to conduct the affairs of his
olilce for another two years which es
timate was filed with the Comptroller
this -morning the Attorney General
makes provision for the new officers
estimating each of their annual sal
aries at $2000 or the biennial approp
riation necessary for ' the now legal
help at $$000. An additional steno
graphic clerk at a salary of $1200 a
year Is also requested.
Attorney General Davidson requests
a total appropriation of $S5S10 for the
next two years. The bi-ennlal esti-
mate made two years ago was $05460
or $20000 less than that' of this year.
An appropriation of $2500 for sta
tionery telephone bills etc. is asked
tnis year against the $1500 of two
years ago. The actual traveling ex
penses of the Attorney General and his
assistants are estimated at $5000 dur-
ing the next two yoars against the
$1200 that has been needed In this par-
ticular during the term now drawing
to a close. Contingent expenses are
estimated at $500 for the next two
years against the $200 for this term.
An appropriation of $1000 is requested
to pay coats In civil caaea in which the
State or any head of a departthent Is
a jmrty. For this purpoifct $2260 waa
requested In the last report Twenty
thousand dollars is asked for the em-
ployment of special counsel and the
taking of other steps to enforce the
I anti-trust laws of the State.
I The amount of work transacted by
j the Attorney General Is each year on
the Increase and Mr. Davidson feels
that the appropriation requested will
j be necessary to dispose of tho large
number of matters which -will come be-
fore his department during the next
' two years.
