it. of course, is with the cans of
fruits for salad put up in Cali-

Two Good Recipes
There are many ways in which
fruits for salad can be served, and
Imre are two of the best of them:
Jrllird Frvit Salad: Soak two
tablespoons gelatin in one-fourth
cup cold water five minutes. Drain
the. juice from a No. 2’/is can of
fruits for salads, and "add enough
water to make one and one-half
cups, Float to boiling, and add to
one teaspoon flour mixed with
two tablespoon Bugar. and one-
tablespoon fresh lime juie*. Br in-
to boiling, pour over one slightly
beaten egg, and cook in doubts
boiler until it is thick and coats-•
the spoon. Cool, then fold ic one-
fourth cup sour whipped iren
Arrange the fruit on lettuce, p-ofsr

ing, and garnish with chopTasr
nuts and the maraschino oherrifcs:
