There arei several methods of reviv
ing flowers known to experts. One oi
the chief reasons why they fade is bt
cause the stalks are brursed where
they were cot or gathered. The way to
remedy this; is to take a fine thread of
wire and insert it ; at the end of the
stems, pushing it a little way up. Then
bind round the stalk a little pad of
damp "cotton wool or moss, arrange
the flowers In tepid water with a mor
sel of stick krharcoal in each vase, add
a few sprays of greenery if possible,
and in half an hour the flowers will ex
pand and look as if they had only just
!een gathered-: In order to preserve
their beautyi as long as possible, every
evening place the vase on a stone fhior
or on a large oM tray that cannot be
injured by j damp and either syringe
with lukewarm water, or pour it over
them from small can with a fine nose.
In the moriing cut about a quarter of
an inch from each stalk, and throw
away every j drop of the -water,, replac
ing it with fresh, from cwhich the chill
has been taken. When flowers made
tip into bouquets are received, as they
often are on birthdays, or other do
mestic anniversaries, rhey lock perfect
ly charming to start with, ut often
fade as soon as they are put in water.
I Of cour. there are bouquets and
bouquets.' If they consist of bud or
short-stalked blossoms mounted on
wire, the only" thing to do is to water
or syringe ithem "overhead" and put
them for a a hour under a bell glass.
But if they "are mounted on morsels of
cane or bamboo they may be simply
untied ami ut p water. Capillary at
traction then comes into! play, the
cane takes fun the moisture and trans
mits to (fhe 'stalks of I the flowers,
keeping thehi damp enough to live for
sonic time, though, a they do not ac
tually touch the water, decay does not
set iir for' several days.
A capital! method of warding off the
' corruption that makes mignonettes, as
tors, , stock? and some other flowers
very speedifly unpleasant is to mix a
little sal aaimonia, four grains to the
quart being sufficient. ' "
Another jmodc is to bold the cut
flowers in (the steam of bot water di
rectly afterf they are unpacked. and
then to put the ends of the stalks in
boiling! waif r for ; two or three min
utes, cut oil, the parboiled' ends and
place them! in a vase-wkh tepid water
in the ordinary way. The latter part
ff the treatment is also available for
flowers thai are beginning to wither a
little, though the evil day of fading can
not be long postponed.

"You can never make cranberries in

"though they may tell you that you

To make popped-corn ' balls take
t three, quarts of popcorn, boil half a
pint of molasses for twelve minutes or
so, then put the popped corn into a
largepan, pour the boiled! molasses
over it and stir it thoroughly together;
make it into balls of the right size with
your hands. '
t For poped-corn , cakes ? have " ready
enough popped corn to fill a two-quart
measure, salt it, and sift it through
your .fingers to, remove all the loose
salt and the anpopped kernels. Now
make a candy with a cupful (a short
half pint) of molasses, half a cupful oi
brown (cane) sugar, a dessert spoon
ful of best vinegar, and .about one-half
ounce of fresh butter; when this is
ready stir in as much of the corn as it
will take up, then press the mixture in
to buttered or oiled tins, mark it out
in cakes with a sharp knife, and leave
till set. ! "
Few stains are more, obstinate than
those made by vaseline. How to re
move them was told recently by a domestic-science
teacher. "Have ready,.'
she said, "a moderately bot iron and
four pieces of blotting paper. Put two
thicknesses of the paper on a board
and wet the spot thoroughly with ben
zine. Lay on the stained cloth, cover
with two other pieces of blotting pa
per, and press quickly with the iron.
An old stain may need two or even
three applications to remove the stain.
The caution is repeated that benzine.
being very inflammable, must be used
with great care.
Put a little lemon-juice or vinegar
in the kettle which cauliflower or cab
bage is boiled in. It will serve to keep
it white while cooking. It also whit
ens and keeps firm fish-meat. Apropos
of boilng cabbage, the cook of one
family manages this process without
the usual disagreeable smell coming
from it. Her secret, she Eays, is in
cooking the vegetable very slowly,
practically stewing itin fact, and keep
ing tne pot closely covered.
A delicacy that is only now finding
its way to exclusive tables is the pre
served comquats which come to us
from China. These are tiny oranges,
preserved with the marvelous skill that
only Chinese preserve-makers attain
and are a delicious and novel sweet for
dessert. They are packed in attractive
little stone pots.
A cooking-teacher's test for the fry
ing point of hot fat is to drop in it a
small piece of bread. 'If the' bread
browns on both sides while forty can
be counted, it is the right temperature
for cooked foods like croquettes, fish
balls, etc.

Shoulder-straps and loops over the
arms are made of small flowers. Larg
er blossoms, : such as orchids, purple

alike on bodice and ' skirt, particularly
when tulle and other -ethereal fabrics
are employed for draperies.
. Among dainty accessories, to even
ing dress are the osnrcy aigrettes ris
ing from a spray of diamonds, bvtl
there are also little pout's of tulle with
an aigrette of jet rising out of them,
and there is a. return to a fashion of
the sixties a wide velvet bow with
a couple of loops, with no ends, tightly
drawn together in the middle and
worked all over with jet.
Satin matching the gown- is still
considered thM proper ; footwear (if
black satin is-not chosen), with the
finish of unobtrusive-little satin bows,
which may or may not be enhanced by
a small sparkling buckle. Anything
in the way of ornament that interferes
with the slender, graceful curve of the
ioot is to be avklcd, The new even
ing slippers are not' extremely low-cut
this winter. "The heels of some of the
newest models are ; somewhat higher
and more narrowly curved than those
recently oopular, but s the pretty
strapped effects are still retained.
A rapid description of some pretty
street gowns would include one of
French blue cloth with a big scroll
pattern worked in the skirt with bands

black of this fur being most effective
on this shade of blue, writes a corres
pondent from Paris to the New York
Tribune, The bodice i a blouse with
fhe same pattern ornamenting the
front and witha high collar lined with
fur. Extremely effective is a costume
of black "cloth made with bolero and
tunic open on the side, both edged with
sable. The ttndervest and bit of skirt
that shows are of white cloth, em
broidered with gold thread and jet
beads. The high collar of the cloth
fnderwaist is lined with fur. The
Louis XV coats, with their rounded
tails, are again fashionable, and stead
ily increasing in - popularity. In drab
velvet, that modish color and material,
a costume of this cut is very attractive.
The skirt is divided by a curved band
of gray fur that rises and is finished
tinder the box pleat in the back of the
skirt. The coat has revers lined with
fur. buttons and silver chains. The
gown, with bolero and skirt opened
over a panel, is hj no means uncom
mon. A pretty example r is of green
1 .. W i
satin cloth, trimmed with chinchilla.
The fui not only edges the bolero and
the open skirt, .but makes clover ' , de
signs that give a heavy, rich effect to
the breadth bordering the panels. The
blpuse and panels are of pale yellow
satta covered wfth lace incrustations.
It is quite worth noting that pale yel
low is a most popular color this year,
and that it is as conspicuous in even
ing gowns as are trimmings tor
smart street suits. ;

The value of the creamery plant, that
is to be established bere, is recognizee
by all, but its real jalue to the com
munity from a financial point of view
depends entirely upon the extent of it;
field of j operations. An effort will b
made to start the Salem creamery with
as great a supply of cream, and con
sequently as large a capacity, as it i
possible to secure the co-operation o!
the farmers. The larger the plant and
its field of operation, tlie greater will
be the proceeds to .be distributed it,
this community. .-'.:.- -
Some farmers may desire to increase
their facilities that tlicy may engage in
this industry on a larger scale, by add
ing to their herds or; the construction
of silos, but may he handicapped .b)
the lack of ready funds. H. JJ. Thicl
sen, secretary of the Salem Chamber o!
Commerce, who lias been laigely in
terested in securing for Salem ; limit
creamery, has made inquiry of num
ber of banking institutions a.nd,loca
capitalists, by whom be is assured that
reputable farmers or reliable renters
will find no trouble in procuring tht
necessary funds with which to enlarge
their business. . ..'
Mr. Thielsen yesterday received a
letter from T. S. Townsend, of Port
land, who wi)(l establish a creamer
here. The letter contains much valu
able information pertaining to the plan
of operation that will be followed bj
Mr. Townsend in conducting the plant,
and is produced in full: -
"My. plan of operating the creamer)
at Salem, will be about sscJoWovts: I
want the farmers, as much Is possible.
to purchase small farm cream scbara
tors. I can assist them in buyirg these
on asy terms.
"The advantage of having a separa- j
tor is very great. First As soon ts
the farmer has finished bis milking hi
can then in a very fsw minutes, have
the cream all separated, front the milk
while it is yet warm,' put ; the cream
away In-his cooling ean'nevcf mixing
warm cream with his older until it ha?
been thoroughly cooled. Then he car.
feed his skimmed milk to his calves and
pigs, while it is fresh and sweet. Then
again it is said, by good authority, that,
six cows and a separator, are etiual tc
seven cows without a separatpT. ,
"Then after, we learn wno desires to
sell their cream. I will arrange to have
drivers, go regularly eve ty other dav
to each of these farmers and get their
cream. By knowing whi wishes"" tc
sell,! and just where they live, it will aid.
me much,, in arranging .my routes for
drivers. - ' ,
"Every patron's cream will be weigh
ed and tested, separately. The basi,
for buying cream will be zVf cent for
butter fat. (1 pound butter) less than
the highest, market price, for fancy
creamery in Portland, f. o. b.. at thi'
creamery. Then for 'Collecting the
cream -will be whatever it may cost,
on each route, which' I think will not
exceed I or 14 cents for a pound o(
butter fat. '.I am willing tc guarantee!
that it will not cost over lA cents,
that is the same that it cost at my two
cheese factories, and the icorc thr .
farmers can work up. oh leacb route.'
the, less the expense for collecting.
"I pay for cream 'on. or about the
10th or lath of the following roontlu
that cream lias been divcrcd. I re
serve this much time in order to get
my books and accounts shaped up. as
all my book work is to be done after
the month closes. '
"The. success of, this creamery" will
depend largely upon the . farmers, arid
to make it a success, they must -commence
at once to arrange' to grow
plenty of feed, such as - corn, clover,1
wheat and tares (or vetches) oats, and
peas, etc., to have on hand to. feed
during the dry season, and in winter."
- Mr. Townsend will not erect a build-
ing in which to conduct his creamery
but has contracte4! for a ibuil'Hng iii
which hewill install the necessary ma
ehinery. AVrben seen last week Mri
Townsend - would not state) . what build
ing he had contracted fo", but it is
rumored that the, plant will be establish
ed in the building m East State street
now occupied, by James "Maguire," pro
prietor' of the Crystal Ice .Works.
Hon. Thos. Cooper, '.a successful
Benton county farmer, was in the city
yesterday, returning to his home nea. -Corvallis,'
on tlio steamer " RutH last

and the value Vf i?uch institutions to a
community, Mr. j Cooper ; informed a
Statesman .rejjprier that the Corvallis
creamery was a "big success. He says
he delivers, daily, to the creamery, the
milk from ten eows. For the month of
