CANNOT at the moment direct you
to any source of compact or com
plete Information on using rice flour.
We are doing some work In this conncc-
ion and I am giving results from time
o time in The Oregonian. Will you
watch this column for anything that
may be useful to you?
In the meantime, let me suggest the
use of rice flour as a substitute for
wheat flour in thickening soups, gravies
nd sauces. In making milk puddings.
blanc manges and custards, and in
cookies and cakes in, which eggs are
used. In the latter case, the amount
of shortening called for in the original
recipe can usually be cut in. half, or
even smaller proportion, equal parts of
rice and barley flour making a very
good wheat flour substitute in plain
biscuits, crackers, nut loaf, cookies and
pies. (In all cases the amount of short
ening 'can be considerably reduced, but
additional care is needed In handling
such pastry, as It sticks to the Board
and breaks very readily. One part rice
flour, one part barley flour and two
parts strong bread flour make a good
fifty-fifty loaf. Care should be taken
in the rising that it is checked before it
has time to fall, as it falls more easily
than wheat flour. Generally, too, it
requires a hotter oven at first, which
should be checked after the first five
or ten minutes (according to the kind
of article), to a more moderate heat,
and longer baking. Kqual parts wheat
flour, and a mixture composed of one
third rice flour, one-third barley flour
and one-third oat flour is also fairly
In bread making these substitute
flours generally call for rather longer
time and lower heat towards the last
of the baking. Baking powder biscuits
made by the usual recipe, but with half
the amount of shortening and equal
parts of rice and barley flours or rice,
barley and oat flour in place of all the
wheat flour, have proved a very popular
wheatless day bread with many people
that I know. I think they bake best
if rolled a little thinner than the usual
baking powder biscuit.
The same mixture, mixed to a drop-
batter, with or without a little syrup or
a few raisins for sweetening, and baked
hissing hot, well-greased muffin
pans, will give, even without eggs, very
satisfactory wheatless muffins.
Using 1 well-beaten egg with 2 cups
equally mixed barley, rice and oat
flour, 1 level tablespoon baking pow
der, l'i teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon
shortening with milk to make a drop-
batter and. If a little sweetening is
wanted, one or two tablespoons syrup
(or 4 cup raisins, or dates, or nuts if
liked) will give very nice light muffins
that would be better than the eggless
kind for a very simple breakfast or
luncheon at which so egg, cheese or
meat dish is served.

Silk Knicker (patent' ap-
plied for) is an improvement on
1 any you have ever known.
The seat has a gore of Italian
silk fabric inserted on the bias
; This gives it a stretch of at least
: four inches more than that of
the ordinary knicker. There are
no seams and stitches whatever
and the gore stretches with every
step. The strain is relieved
these knickers cannot rip, and
consequently wear longer than ,
the ordinary kind with the seam.
