The Christmas Fruit Cake.
An odor of spice permeates the
kitchen, for mother is baking the
fruit cake for Christmas in order
that all of its fruity flavors will
have time to blend throughout and
make one delectable whole. Isn't
it great fun to think of all the
goodies which are connected with
the holiday season? But oh, how
hard It is to keep prying fingers
away until at last the day arrives
The following is my favorite re
cipe for fruit cake. As given the
cake would weigh nine pounds and
would cost $2.80. However, . one

Steaming Fruit Cake.
Fruit cakes may be either baked
or steamed. Steaming makes them
more moist than baking, but there
is less danger of burning. If the
cake is to be steamed it may be
done in a regular steamer or in
one improvised by using a roaster
with a rack in the bottom. A low
temperature must be used to pre
vent too much carmelization of
candied fruits. Steaming may be
done either in the oven or over a

baking these cakes because thin

"And He shall judge among the

World Peace, the League of Na

all these are much in the minds of
the people of earth just now. And
as we approach the time of the
birth of the Prince of Peace, it is
worthy of note that approximately
the only time in all the known his
tory of the world when men were
not largely at war, was during the
lifetime on earth of the Son of
God. This does not admit of dis

very significant thing. And we
would do well to give thought,
much thought, to it.

World Peace, it can only come, will
only come when once more the

be done and all these things are
the fruit of lives where the Spirit
of the Prince of Peace is NOT.
None of the man-planned quack
remedies, nor panacea cure-alls will
ever avail BUT, when the Spirit
of the Prince of Peace comes
broadcast into the hearts and lives
of men the world over, THEN WE
