WHEN SERVING EGGS
O. H. Miller, Publisher.
Law of Service.
It Is no mere* sentimentallsm to say
that men should learn to think more?
of what Is dm* from them to others
than of what is duo from others to
them. This is tlie church idea. It is
the idea also of all who have greatly
served mankind. The real heroes of
science never were moved in any de-
cree by the thought of the "recom-
pense of reward." Patriots, if they
were truly patriots, were inspired by
no such motive. Washington refused
to receive one cent of salary for com-
manding the continental armies. 11 is
idea was that he should do something
lor his country, not that his country

Our Indian Population.
The figures showing the Indian pop-
ulation in the United States do not
afford much ground for sentimental
persons to lament the disappearance
of As a matter of fact, the In
dians are not disappearing, so far as
numbers arc concerned. There are
now nearly 300,000 members of the
aboriginal races in this country, and
there is a steady growth. As it is
doubtful whether there were ever any
more in this portion of the continent,
it is possible that much emotion has
been wasted In deploring the passing
of these original inhabitants. Further-
more, the Indians of the present day
are in far better condition than their
progenitors. Many are educated and
trained in ways that make them good
and worthy citizens, and they live in
a manner that would astonish the red
man of 200 years ago, could he come
back and see things as they are now.
More than half the Indians in exist-
ence dress like white men and to some
extent copy civilized ways. The other
half retain much of the old time mode
of living, but the proportion of "blan
ket" or wholly uncivilized redskins i«
steadily growing smaller.

one was at home in the evening, the
other was also, and both were always
there unless they were at some the-
ater—except on Sunday night, when
they dined at Sherry's, because many
fashionable people did it. They had
no friends and few acquaintances. In
their humbler and happy days they
had had many friends, but had lost

Brooklyn and went to live, like un-

grand house, pr. tending to be what
they longed to be. longing to be what
they pretended to be, and as discon-
tented as they deserved.
"Oh. yes, Mrs. B.'s at home," Joe
answered. "I guess she and Alva
were about to go to bed." Alva was
their one child. She had been chris-
tened Malvina, after Joe's mother;
but when the Halls ''blossomed out"

two tablespoons grated cheese, salt,

Finish cooking und serve on buttered

Eggs a la Buckingham.—Make five
slices milk toast and arrange on plat-
ter. Use recipe for scrambled eggs,
having the eggs slightly underdone.
Pour eggs over toast, sprinkle with
four tablespoons grated mild cheeses
Put in oven to melt cheese and finish
Eggs a la Flnnoise.—Have ready a
shallow pan two-thirds full of boiling
salted water, allowing one-half table-
spoon salt to one quart of water. Put
two or three buttered muffin pans in;
the water. Break each egg separately
Into a cup and carefully slip Into a
muffin ring. The water should cover
the eggs. When there is a film over
the top and the white is firm carefully
remove with a buttered 'skimmer to
circular pieces of buttered toast and
cover with a tomato sauce, seasoned
with salt and pepper and butter.
Shirred Eggs.—Butter an egg shirrer.
Cover bottom and sides with fine
cracker crumbs. Break an egg into
a cup and carefully slip Into shirrer.
Cover with seasoned buttered crumbs
and bake in a moderate oven until
white Is firm and crumbs brown. The
shirrers should be placed on a tin
plate that they may be removed easily
from the oven.
Eggs in Tomatoes.—Cut a slice from
stem end of tomato, scoop out the
pulp, slip In an egg, sprinkle with salt
and pepper, cover with buttered
crumbs, and bake.
Eggs a la Goldenrod.—Three bard
boiled eggs, one tablespoon butter, one
tablespoon flour, one cup milk, one-
half teaspoon salt, one-eighth teaspoon
pepper, five slices toast, parsley.
Make a thin, white saucc with butter,
flour, milk and seasonings. Separate

Egg Farci.—Cut hard boiled eggs ia
halves crosswise. Remove yolks and
put whites aside in pairs. Mash yolks
and add equal amount of cold cooked
chicken or veal finely chopped. Mois-
ten with melted butter or mayonnaise.
A Handy Remedy for Burns.
I have often heard women say that
they can never go near the kitchen
stove without getting burned, and no
doubt some of us, if not all of us, have
suffered many big as well as little
burns and scalds for the want of some
simple remedy. Of course, we all
know that bicarbonate of soda or com-
mon baking soda Is one of the sim-
plest remedies, but even that doe«
not give immediate relief. Kerosene
is the easiest remedy to procure, and
Is always handy in the kitchen, sav-
ing stops to the medicine chest when
one Is in a hurry, anil experience has
shown it as the most expedient.
Cover the burn or scald with the ker-
osene and repeat until the burning
sensation Is gone. 1 have never
known any tenderness or soreness to
follow, or any trace of the burn to
be left wherever kerosene had been
! used.—Pictorial Review.
Put four tablcspoonfuls of butter
and a cup of water together in a
saucepan and place over a slow fire.

Hour all at once and stir vigorously.
When thoroughly mixed remove from

beating the mixture between the times
that each egg is added. Drop by the
spoonful on buttered pans, having a
space of one and one half inches be-
tween each puff. Hake In a slow oven
for half an hour. When done and cool
cut a slit in the side of each puff and
fill with sweetened whipped cream.
Use to a cup of crnam four table-
spoonfuls of powdered sugar and one-
half teaspoonful of vanilla. This recipe
makes eight puffs.
How to Wash Cut Glass.
Never put heavy, elaborately cut
glass Into very hot water. The depth
of the cutting makes it dangerous to
expose the glass to sudden expansion
caused by the plunge into the hot wa-

has been added a lit tit. ammonia, and
clean the Irregular .surfaces with a
soft brush. It also in unsafe to turn

Cracked cut glass can frequently
be preserved to a useful old age by
the skillful insertion of a few rivets.
These will not be noticeable, and can
be obtained at any crockery store.
