A DINNER PARTY
A dinner party much enjoyed by
members of the high school faculty
occurred Tuesday evening at the
country home of Mr. and Mrs. Mar
ion Hansell north of Athena. Tb
hostess employed a color scheme of
pink which was most attractive. Fol
lowing dinner music, chat and college

v.ere indulged in by the guests who
included. Mr. and Mrs. 0. C. Iladley

and Mr. Stokhetse.
We occasionally read of the mar
velous housekeepers who by a wave
of the hand and a cold
chicken, combined with
an elastic Imagination,
will set before her guests
a wonderful meal; but
the majority of us poor
mortals find ourselves
minus the chicken and
no amount of Imagina
tion will till an empty
cupboard. By being a little forehand
ed, these times that try women's souls
may be helped. Provide for emergen
cies, have an emergency shelf with a
good collection of staples from which
to produce a meal If you are far from
a grocery. Women In the country can
not please their town friends better
than to serve them with country-grown
things. A dinner of salt pork and
cream gravy will delight the heart of
many a city bred who never tasted
good pork such as they cure on the
Kresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, with
cream and milk, will make a meal Dt
for any king. With the wealth of the
garden and orchard the country wom
an is almost Independent of supplies.
An omelet is a dainty dish and one
which nearly everyone likes. To pre
pare an omelet have a smooth frying
pan, add a tablespoonful of butter to
the pan and pour In the omelet when
the butter Is melted and pan hot.
Beat the eggs, separating the whites
from the yolks; to every yolk add a
tablespoonful of water or milk, sea
soning of salt and pepper and fold In
the stillly beaten whites of the eggs.
Cook, raising the edges of the omelet
so that the center Is well cooked, using
a spatula. Score on each side, fold
and roll on the platter when the ome
let Is well cooked. If not quite firm
on top, set a minute In a hot oven or
under the gas flame. For a more
elaborate omelet jelly, Jam, chopped
meats and creamed vegetables may be
spread over the omelet before folding.
Sliced green onions seasoned with
salt and dressed with thick sour
cream, Is a most tasty salad to serve
with plain bread and butter sand
wiches. It Is never wise to let the salad

often a life saver.

First Locomotive to
Make Mile a Minute
The thrill of traveling a mile a
minute by rail was first experienced
In 1848, when the Antelope, a 10-ton
engine built under the direction of Su
perintendent MInot of the Boston &
Maine railroad, covered the 26 miles
between Boston and Lawrence In Just
20 minutes. The engine had single
drivers, six feet in diameter.
Every detail was carefully arranged
to give the new engine a chance to
break all previous records. MInot se
lected an engineer named Pemberton
to drive the locomotive. Pemberton
was reluctant at first, but when Minot
threatened to take the throttle him
self, he agreed to try. MInot rode
Men were sent over the road to
spike down all switches and see that
everything was In perfect order. It
was before telegraphy had been Intro
duced and to run a mile a minute re
quired careful preparation.
A large crowd gathered at the sta
tion and amid cheers and waving of
hats, the Antelope began Its historic
run. Half way to Lawrence, MInot
looked at his watch. Fourteen min
utes had elapsed. He urged Pember
ton to' get more speed and Pemberton
pujjed the throttle wide open. The
engine responded and when the train
was brought to a stop at the station,
