Home-Made Saratoga Chips
'"Home-made Saratoga Cbipa are
much more of a rarity than they should
be," says Fannie Merritt Farmer in the
August WOMAN.S HOMK COMPANION. "If
one owns a potato sliecr, which, ie not
an expensive utensil, they are not
difficult to prepare. They are always
an acceptable accompaniment to fried
flsh, but perhaps are never more happily
in evidence than when served as one of
the assessories of a picnic luncheon.
Wash and pare medium-sized potatoes.
Slice thin, using a vegetable slicer for
that purpose,- into a bowl of cold water,
and let stand one and one half hours,
changing the water twice, Drain,
plung into a kettle of boiling water,
and boil one' minute. Drain again,
coyer with cold water, and let stand
five minutes. Take from the wnter and
dry between towels. Fry in deep fat
until delicately browned, keeping in
motion with a skimmer, throughout the
cooking. Remove with a skimmer to a
pan lined with brown paper (which
will absorb the superfluous fat) and
sprinklewith salt.. Always drain fried
potatoes on brown paper, for fried food
if properly cooked and properly drained
seldom absorbs enough fat to be in
digestible to adults.
The rich mineral belt lying to the
south and west of Lostiue is attracting
considerable attention and several
camps are now working, A company
in Seattle has men at work while several
residents are developing properties
located last spring.
The ore taken out predominates
greatly in copper but carries enough
gold-and silver to pay for operating.
Several owners are showing some
excellent cuprite and bormte copper
from ledges varying from a foot to
several feet in width,
u The general course of the ore veins
is northeast southwest while ore shoots
can be found coming into these main
veins at very regular intervals! The
formation is granite, slate and por
phory. The copper bits a gosan capping
which varies in depth but inariably
shows copper when depth has been
One company in Los tine has a group
of claims on which they are negotiating
for a working bond to be given on a
basis of $5000 per claim, a crew of men
to be kept at,work continuously for 18
months. With such operations it
will be buf; a short time before it w ill
be fully determined just to whatexteut
the mineral deposits exist ' in that
locality. Lostiue bias fair to become a
mining center if a few payingjproperties
are developed. It is an easy matter to
brine ore down the south fork of the
Wallowa. The time may come however,
when the output of the mines may be
taken across the divide to Enterprise or
Joseph. It depends on other conditions
than those at present being altered.
A good quality of copper is found
above Joseph nnd should sufficient cap
ital, invested it; would make Enter
prise the center between Lostine and
Joseph with the mines equally distant.
Enterprise is so located that every
resource in Wallowa county is within
reach of it.
Edgar Marvin of Wallowa had to
leave his place of business recently to
remedy an accident which befell his
threshing engine and outfit. We are
informed that the engineer emnloved
by Mr. Marvin succeeded in getting too
much fire water and run his outfit over
a grade almost demolishing the engine.
However. Mr. Marvin appeared on the
scene and threshing is going on as if
nothing had happened. Engineers who
use tire water to excess are the cause of
many accidents, loss of life, and wrecks
both with traction, engines and those of
