Rust Stains in Clothln? The Care
of Hogs Good Cooking
Hard boiled eggs and cornme.il makes
a good first feed for ducklings.
To remove stains from machine urease
or oil, wash in cold rain water and soap.
This will not injure colors.
Kerosene oil will soften leather shoes
that have been wetted; or machine belts;
or harness that has been soaked with
Ammonia water will kill any acid that
has been dropped upon clothes. In most
cases, a few drops of chloroform will then
restore the color.
Trees alout the house make it more
homelike and attractive, and shield it
from f lie cold winds of winter and the
hot sun of summer.
It is better to have a close, warm pen,
excluding snow and cold, and not give
tho pigs two much bedding. If given the
chance they will cover themselves with
straw until they become steaming hot,
and then go outside to the cold, thus
minting themselves sick lrom colds allect
ing their lungs.
A wholesome Dish of Onions. Boil
them in salt and water until they begin
to bo tender, drain the water from them
and wrap each onion in soft paper, bet
them side by side into a dripping pan,
let them bake until done, then put them
into a vegetable dish and pour rich brown
gravy over them.
Rust stains in clothing or ink stains
which are about the same thing can be
removed as follows : Add two parts of
cream of tartar to one part of oxalice
acid, dry, and keep tho mixture in a
liottle ; wet the stained part and apply a
little of the powder; wash out soon after
in clear warm water. Repeat if neces
sary. Swiss Omelette. Break six eggs in a
bowl, add a gill of cream, a quarter pound
of grated cheese, some pepper and salt.
Pour into a buttered pan. Stir the ome
lette well about for a few seconds, so
that it will not set like a sjionge cake.
Let it brown quickly. Fold over on itself
and serve. Parsley and a few fine bread
crumbs added before cooking improve
the dish for some tastes.
Chicken and Macaroni. Cut up a ten
der chicken in neat pieces and fry brown
in fresh butter with a few strips of bacon,
keeping the pan covered. Season with
popper and salt. Boil a handful of the
small Italian macaroni, for twenty min
utes, drain through a colander," add a
large piece of butter, a cup of rich, strong
gravy, and, if liked, some grated Par
me&an cheese. Arrange tho chicken on
a very hot dish around the central pile of
macaroni, which must be thoroughly
moist and rich with gravy and butter.
Screenings consist not merely of crack
ed or imperfect grain, but contain also
many heads of weeds seeds that unfit
them for feeding whole to any kind of
stock. Small seed aro seldom digested,
and some of the hardest of them grow
even better after passing through the
stomachs of horses and cattle. It is this
that makes barnyard manure so prolific
of weeds wherever it is applied. It is
safer to grind screenings, though if
they consist almost entirely of weed
seeds, it may be even better economy to

Her lleeco is therefore not so heavy as

Those who start cuttings in water will
use a bottle with a wido mouth, thoy will
find it an easy matter to removo tho plant
when tho time comes to jKit it, without
injuring tho roots. Or, after the roots
have reached tho sidu of tho glass, thee
can sift the fine earth into tho bottlo till
it is an inch or two in depth. After the
roots have taken possession of this soil,
the top of the bottlo can bo broken off by
a sharp blow with a knife, and then tho
mass of earth can Imj slipped out without
disturbing the roots in the least, in ex
actly the same manner as tho ball of
eartli in which a plant is growing can be
removed from a iot.
Apple and Sago Pudding. Paro and
core a half dozen sour, juicy apples, and
arrange them in a buttered pudding dish ;
fill up the hollow of each apple with
sugar and put a bit of butter on top.
Cover the dish closely and a set in the
