Perhaps some Southern reader will cor

up a young chicken In neat pieces. A
chicken of broiling; size would be cut
in four pieces, the breast bone snd tips
of pinions being removed. Dip the
pieces In flour, well seasoned with salt
and pepper, then, tn beaten egrg and
then In finely sifted bread or cracker
crumbs: arrange in a baking; pan; pour
on a little melted butter and bake
bout SO minutes; make a cream sauce,
using half chicken stock (made from
giblets and trimmings) and half cream.
Adding the dissolved scrapings from the
pan gives a good flavor. Pour the
sauce Into a hot dish and place upon
it the pieces of browned chicken so
that the crispness of the latter is not
Impaired. Thin broiled and cured slices
of bacon and corn fritters or corn pud
ding often accompany thin dish.
Another rpethod Is to rinse the pieces
of chicken In water or milk and dip
them In seasoned flour, then lay them,
skin side down, in a single layer in a
hot baking pan In a mixture of but
ter and tried-out salt pork fat. Put
Into a very hot oven. Cook a few
minutes and baste well.
When one aide la brown, turn the
pieces over, so that they are lightly
browned all over without being dried

Portlsnd. Or.. Oct. IS. Would you tell
me. through The Bundey Oregonlsn. how to
make vanilla extract and others. If not too
much trouble. Thanking you for your
kindness. MRS. V. K. C.
Vanilla owes Its flavor to a volatile
essential oil. This can be extracted
from the pod by soaking In alcohol. I
do not think, however, that you will
find home-made vanilla extract any
better or cheaper than the best com
mercial product. Home-made extract
will be light In color.
Vanilla extract Four ounces best
Mexican vanilla pods, 16 ounces alco
hol. Pound the pods very fine or put
through a fine foodchopper, adding a
little powdered sugar to absorb any
oil which may be expressed. Cover
with pure alcohol: put Into a well
corked bottle, and let stand 2 to 4
weeks. Filter and rebottle, add more
alcohol to the spent pods, to extract the
last trace of the precious essential oil.
This wesker extract can be used with
new pods Instead of the plain alcohol.
This strong extract Is best for confec
tionery, but for ordinsry domestic use
It may be diluted with water, since
there Is danger of using too much. If
one Is acenstomed to ordinary vanilla
Commercial vanilla extract Eight
ounces vanilla pods: 1 ounces tonka
beans: 12 ounces sugar; 1 gallon alco
hol; 1 gallon water. Proceed as In
the first recipe.
Imitation vanilla extract Four
ounces Tonka beans; 1 pint alcohol; 1
pint water; one-half cup brown sugar.
Prepare as above.
The essential oils of lemon or orange
rind (use the yellow part only) and
various spices, can be extracted with
alcohol, as above. '

To Quickly Chase
Away Wrinkles
(From Fashion Review.)
The surest and Quickest way to ob
literate wrinkles of- every description,
from the finest lines to the deepest
furrows. Is' by means of the saxollta
formula, about which w'v heard so
much of lata. Bathing the face and
neck In the lotion at once tightens and
tones up the skin, affecting every
wrinkle, as well as creased or saggy
tissue about the cheecks, neck or chin.
Any druggist can supply pure pow
dered saxollte. which Is most effec
tive. Dissolve an ounce of this In a
half pint of witch hasel and you have
as perfect a soluUon as any expert

French Recipe for Little Dishes.
There Is a dainty little cooking pan
in France which is called a plat. It
has two handles and Is practically a
frying pan with the exception that It is
only made In the prettier kitchen ma
terialsenameled tin, earthenware and
copper. The plats can be bought here
In the cheaper forms, and any one will
find them very satisfactory In prepar-.
ing the following recipe:
Rognons aux Bananes Veal kidney
and bananas are the ingredients of
this melting dish. Take off a little of
the kidney fat use only a half or quar
ter for one person and saute It with
butter in quite a hot pan. The kidney
must be browned slightly, but still be
left a little pink In the Inside; this
slight rareness Improves the taste and
leaves it tender. When cooked, push
the kidney to one side and put in a
banana, cut in lengthwise slices that
have been sprinkled with lemon Juice.
These will fall to pieces with the cook
ing, but all the better. Pile the pulp
beside the kidney on a hot "plate and
eat at once.

Exercising in itself is good, but Is of
no avail for developing the bust or
rounding out hollows, as this disfigure
ment is due to starved, underlying tis
sues, and to correct the fault it is neces
sarv to properlynourish these sensitive
glands and muscles. A gal 1 ol ' tonic
(which is the Vaucalre treatment). Is
very beneficial, because It goes right to
the seat of trouble and so energizes the
delicate tissues and glands that they
quickly respond and soon assume their
correct sire and proportions. Any woman
can easily prepare her own Vaucaire
treatment by making a syrup with a
cupful and a half of sugar and a pint
of water, then adding one ounce galiol.
Take a tablespoonful before meals, and
In a ehort time the figure will be
plump and symmetrical as nature In
tended. Galiol Is a little expensive, but
for this purpose it has no equal.
Ruth S.: The electric needle is pain
ful, slow and uncertain. Apply a deiol
paste to the hairs' you wish removed,
and "after two or three minutes rub off
and wash the skin. Any druggist can
supply the powdered delol, and while it
costs eeventy-five cents an ounce, rare
ly is it necessary to use more than one
application to permanently remove even
a heavy growth of hair.
Betty: Tour "muddy," oily skin will
not cause worriment very much longer
if vou make up and use this amarol re
tiring lotion: Buy two ounces amarol
at the drug store and dissolve it in one
pint hot water, then before retiring at
night thoroughly cleanse the skin and
apply the amarol retiring lotion gen
erously, rubbing lightly until it disap-
fiears. Do thi every night and before
ong your skin will be clear and smooth
and take on the natural rose tint of
youth and health.
Anita: Little good results from ap
plying olive oil to the scalp. To over
come the itchy, scaly condition, it is
necessary to employ a tonic to stimu
late the hair-sacs and tender tissues.
You can make a pint of the best tonio
by pouring one ounce beta-canthol In a
half pint alcohol, then adding one-half
pint water. For best results use fre
quently and plentifully, each time giv
ing the scalp a thorough massage. Ijs
ing this beta-canthol tonic soon cor
rects scalp and hair troubles, encour
ages the secretion of coloring matter,
necessary to restore the former shade
and brilliancy, and induces a heavy
growth of soft, silky hair.
Ida: Nature is kind to the com-
Elexion when her laws are not abused,
ut where powders and cosmestics are
used to excess the harvest is a wrin
kled, aged, mottled, unsightly skin.
Stop clogging and smothering the
pores and try this simple treatment.
If you would regain a soft, velvety skin
and whoJesome complexion: Use plenty
of good soap and warm water to re
move the dust and dirt, then after
drying, apply a cerol cream, massag
ing in well, and soon your skin will
be free from impurities and the true
beauty of youth-hood in all its charm
and loveliness will be yours to enjoy.
To make the cream, dissolve two
ounces cerol In three-fourth pint boil
ing water, stir till smooth.
C. D.: Shampooing can be made a
pleasant Incident of the toilet if you
employ eggol for cleansing hair ana
scalp. Get a package of eggol from
your druggist for a quarter (which is
enough for a dozen shampoos) and dis
solve a teaspoonful in a cup of hot
water: massage briskly as you pour
a little at a time on the scalp. You
will find shampooing with eggol
soothes and invigorates the scalp and
puts it in a healthy condition. After
rinsing, the hair dries quickly and
takes on a rich, even gloss and fluffi
hess. Occasional shampoos with eggol
greatly benefit the hair-sacs and keep
the scalp clean and healthy. Adr
