HOME ECONOMICS OFFERS FRUITFUL

Says Oregon Clubwoman.
BY SARAH A. EVANS,
President Oregon federation of Women's
BEFORE the clubwomen of the

Western States than In the East,
there lies a great uncultivated field
which sooner or later they must enter,
and enter for the purpose of knowl
edge the great field of home eco

Earah Piatt Decker, with her broad
horizon and splendid reach into the
future, had even her vision dimmed by
discouragement, and recommended the
discontinuance of the home economics
committee of the General Federation.
Among the reasons given for this
recommendation was "that conditions
of living vary to such an extent in
different states and regions that what
applies to one locality often Is an ele
ment of conf ushion when advised in an
other. "Household economics," said Mrs.
Decker, "is a local question and must

Mrs. William Fear, chairman of the

port: "When I compare the work of the
Oregon clubs with those of other states
along domestic lines, I am Inclined to
share the views of Mrs. Decker when
she recommended the discontinuance of

other lines of work more attractive

domestic conditions will not improve
until we put our shoulders to the wheel

that may be.

that of reaching the greatest efficiency

Seaside, Oct. 27. Will you kindly
give directions for canning mushrooms?
The variety to be found in this vicin

peel off before cooking, but I have
been told that wild mushrooms are not
to be peeled before canning. What is
'your advice? Will you give explicit di
rections for making pie crust? Are the
proprietary "vegetable" fats as good
as lard? I have a prejudice against
lard and much prefer using something
else. Can cream be used?" I enjoyed
your European letters so much.

At the Hood River convention lt was

appoint the delegates to the Chicago

The officers requested, at that time,
that anyone desiring, or thinking they
could go, should send in their names
to the president or corresponding sec
retary, and already a number have
been sent in, but Oregon this year will
be entitled to two more delegates than

cans to overflowing. The cans are then
given the usual wash-boiler treatment
(with the caps loosely on the cans)
for half an hour. Screw down the caps
and cocl. "Intermittent sterilization"
is the best canning method for most
vegetables; so next day the cans must
be again packed in the "canner,"
steamer or wash boiler and (without
removing the covers) should be
steamed or simmered one hour. Give a
similar treatment- on the third day,
and the mushrooms should keep well.
This, you will notice, is the "general
method" for vegetable canning so fre
quently given in this column. The
time varies a little with the kind and
age of vegetable used, but the general
principle holds good:
As to whether the fats you name are
as good for pastry as lurd, the an
swer is, "It all depends." Personal
taste and personal digestion are both
factors. If you dislike lard there is
no need for you to use It. You can
make excellent pastry with either fat
you name, especially the latter.
Remember, however, that, as these
fats contain a lower proportion of
water than lard does, the amount need
ed for shortening to the same degree
of richness the same amount of flour
will be less with the vegetable fats
than with lard. A very small amount
cf butter is useful (where strictest
economy is not necessary) in improv
ing the flavor of the pastry.
Success in pastry-making is at least
as much a matter of "knack" and skill
In manipulation of the rolling-pin as
it is of proportions and ingredients.
Mere directions don't help much. You
should get a skilled friend to show
you "just how." In the meantime don't
attempt "rolled crust," but try the
more quickly made and easily digested
Short crust For every cup of flour
allow two to three level tablespoons
of vegetable fat or three to- four level
tablespoons lard, according to the de
sired richness of crust. Allow also four
level teaspoons salt and half level tea
spoon baking powder to each cup flour
Work the shortening into the flour
with the finger tips or, better, ' with
a spatula-knife, until the mixture is
light and looks like bread crumbs,
Work lightly and do not so soften the
fat that you have a putty-like mass
Instead of a "bread-crumby" one. Mix
to a stiff paste with as little cold wa
ter as possible, using a knife to mix
(so that yorr can cut and "feel" the tex
ture) and making a "well" in the center
so that you can mix gradually and
quickly without either "drowning the
miller" or kneading all . the lightness
out of the paste. Leave the mixing
bowl clean. Toss the ball of dough out
on a lightly floured board. Let it get
a very thin film of flour on all sides
(use as little flour as possible), then
roll out at once to the desired thin
ness and line your pie plate. In roll
ing, work so lightly that you do not
break the film of flour. Do not press
so hard that the pastry sticks to the
board. Sticking always spoils the tex
ture and is usually caused by "too
much zeal" in bearing down hard on
the rolling-pin, as if force were neces
sary to secure thinness. Use "tact and
a ight hand" In making pie crust- The
same rule is a good one for managing a
husband, father or brother. Try this,
and when you report success in short
crust, I'll continue the lesson in regard
to rolled pastry.
Cream pastry is excellent. Make it
as above, only use one to one and one-
half tablespoons shortening (according
to the kind used and the thickness of
the cream) and use cream in place of
water for mixing. If very thick cream
is used the shortening may be omitted
altogether, the salt and baking pow
der being mixed with the flour. This

usually digestible form of pastry, but
is attainable for few of us city dwell
ers. Thank you lor liking my letters

over night. Remove the peel until the
onions look clear, being careful not to
cut the bulbs. Put them In jars with
cold white wine vinegar with (to each
quart of vinegar) one teaspoon grated
horseradish, one and one-half tea
spoons, white peppercorns, two Inches
stick-ginger, and a sprig of tarragon,
if available. Cover closely. Three days
later pour the vinegar off and boil it.
Pour it hot over the onions and seal
Pickled Onions No. 2 Remove the
first skin of the onions' with your fin
gers and the second with a silver
knife if you have the patience. The
object is to preserve the shape and
color of the onions. Pack them in dry
bottles and cover with cold white
vinegar with two teaspoons salt, one
tablespoon sugar, one teaspoon pepper
corns, one-half teaspoon allspice to
every quart of vinegar, or use two to
four tablespoons mixed "pickling
spices" to one quart vinegar in place
of the simpler spices. Cover at once.
Pickled onions No. 3 Peel the onions
and throw them as soon as peeled into
brine "strong enough to bear an egg."
Leave overnight- Drain and dry be
tween cloths. Pack into cans and
cover with boiling white wine vinegar,
using one inch ginger, one ounce pep
percorns, one-half teaspoon mustard
seed to the quart. Some makers used
a small quantity of mace as well and
one-quarter teaspoon celery seed gives
a flavor liked by many, though it tends
to darken the pickle. ' White wine
vinegar gives the best colored and
crispest pickle. Where a softer pickle
is liked the onions are sometimes
boiled a few minutes in salt and water
before being drained and covered with
the boiling spiced vinegar.

Miss L. G.: Here is a hair tonic
which you can prepare at home at
small expense and which is a genuine
hair grower of the best and simplest
kind. Be sure to keep your scalp clean
by frequent shampooing with canthrox
and then rub into your scalp this tonic,
made by dissolving an ounce of quin
zoin in. a half pint of alcohol and add
ing one-half pint cold water. For all
scalp troubles and badly nourished hair
this is an .unequaled remedy.
Olive: I never recommend a hair
dye, but unless I am much mistaken
about your age, you should not have
trouble with faded or gray hair for a
long while yet. The best way in the
world to stop your hair troubles is to
wash with canthrox, occasionally. tTse
a teaspoonful in a cup of hot water.
It is the best thing I know of to re
move dandrurr and prevent brlttleness
split hairs and tho irritation caused
by excess oil. It cleanses thoroughly
CORRECTLY. The Nemo Hyy iemc
