RAILWAY COMPANY WILL IM
PROVE THE STATION.
The management of the Interurban
Ralway Company has been requested
to install new lights in the station
bouse and otherwise improve it. They
have agreed to do so, but request
that each citizen take the authority
to discourage any future defacement
of their property. Their request is
no doubt in order and we wish to call
It to the attention of the patrons of
the line. The lights have been repeat-
edly stolen and for what purpose it is
hard to say, inasmuch as they cannot
be used locally, and leads us to be
lieve that they are taken by boys or
someone from the City. Let's make
II a point to see if this cannot be
overcome in the future.

HOUSEKEEPERS ALWAYS DO,
AND WILL, PREFER THEIR OWN.
A Good Egg Food.
Cowpeas are not only relished by
hens, but it is excellent egg food for
them. One successful poultryman
gives his experience: The peas, aft-
er maturing, were harvested and
stored in dry lofts, and thrown to the
fowls in scratching pens, where they
were scratched over and searched for

expert's Opinion of Preparing Small
Onions for the Winter Dining Ta-
ble—Proper Arrangement of
ths Delicious Cauliflower.
Despite the fact that excellent pick-
les may be bought in the stores at
little expense, still, where there are
vegetables In plenty and to spare
housekeepers will always prefer to
put them up for winter use rather
than buy. It goes without saying the
cost Is less, while there can be no
doubt as to their purity.
Some people have luck, as they say.
putting up pickles cold, but the only
real success in my experience has
been with small onions put up the
following way .
The outer covering of the onions Is
removed, and then they should be
packed Into clean, dry glass bottles
and covered with cold vinegar, adding
the usual pickling spices, whole
The bottles should be filled brim-
ming full, and then be sealed down.
Onions pickled this way are very firm
and have a fine flavor, but it is said
they do not keep as well as the boiled
pickles. They will keep during the
winter, anyway It might be well,
however, to use them up first. They
are so little trouble to put up that
with the vegetables at hand a few
may be preserved just as one found
time for doing it.
To pickle cauliflower with cold vin-
egar, the vegetables should be cut
into small pieces and sprinkled with
salt. They should He for a couple of j
days thus, and then be packed into
glass Jars and covered with cold
spiced pickling vinegar

vinegar the seeds are put Into a cook-
ing pan and covered with salt and
water. After lying there an hour or
so the pan Is put over the fire and
the seeds brought to a boll. They
should be removed carefully Into a
stone Jar and then be covered with
boiling hot pickling vinegar.
The pears peeled and halved are ;
laid In a preserving pan In payers,
alternating with one and one-half
pounds of sugar. The brown sugar
Is the best. Pour over a quart of vin-
egar and drop in a thin bag contain-
ing half an ounce each of cloves and |
cinnamon and a little mace. A sliced !
lemon Is considered an Improvement.
The whole should be gently boiled un-
til the pears are tender They are
then placed In Jars carefully and the
syrup boiled for half an hour or so un-
til thick. Fill the jars to overflowing
and seal at once.
White wine and sugar vinegar are I
considered the best kinds for cold
pickling, but if other vinegars are
used they should be boiled first, then
cooled. and perfectly freed—by
straining—from any sediment, as this
would cause the pickles to ferment.—

Individual Ideas Likely to Govern
Fashions to a Greater Degree
Than for Many Seasons—
Lace and Chiffon.
With the coming of the cold weath '
er and the advent of the velvets, furs,
etc., there will be an Increase in the
importance of heavy lace, but for eve i
nlng and house wear the fine laces
will be In demand, and everything i
seems to point to a season of frills 1

likely to get as far away from the J

and women can wear pretty much
what Is most becoming and pleases
them most if they are able to find the i
answers to those two problems |
If frills and flounces are becoming ;
and suit a woman's style, then the
fine laces are the thing, and even
where one does not go in for that
sort of thing the fine laces are avail-
able for the most clinging of drap-
eries and the most simple and severe j
of lines, says a New York Sun writer

the shoulder seams, or It may begin

form a drapery or scarf ends over !
the back of the skirt.
There are many effective coat tail
arrangements of lace In this last
class, the lace perhaps forming a
fichu drapery on the front of the
bodice or merely making a wide col-
lar over the shoulders and then de-
scending to form the little coat tails
in the back.
Wing sleeves of fine lace have been
revived and are seen not only on
robes d'interieure, but on dinner and
evening gowns. Many of the smart-
est pinner and formal evening frocks
havd their bodices entirely of fine
lace and tulle or chiffon, while the
draped skirts are of satin or other
heavier material. Peplum details are

Shine on Black Cloth.
There are several methods used for
removing shine on black cloth, but
the best one Is to take a piece of
new black crinoline and wet it, then
lay over the shiny spot. This should
be covered with a dry cloth and then
pressed with a very hot Iron. If the
iron is hot enough It will make the
crinoline adhere to the serge You
must pull the former away quickly as
you would a plaster, and this will
raise the nap of the serge so that it
looks dull again. The shine is created
by the nap being pressed down so flat,
so it will be seen the usual plan of
rubbing with a liquid is only a tempo-
rary remedy. It removes the gloss
but the nap is still flattened.

MASSACRE AT SALONIKI
Non Moslem Population Killed Before
Occupation of Town by Greeks
London An uncensored dispatch
received by the Daily Chronicle from
' Friday Saloniki has been occu-
pied by the Creek troops. Their ap-
proach was attended by awful scenes.
"Before the Creeks entered the
town the elements of disorder broke
loose and a terrible massacre of the
non-Moslem population took place.
Shooting and looting was general.
"When the Greeks took possession
they imprisoned all pashas, officials
and Turkish officers. The Turks in
captivity in Saloniki number 27,000."
Baptist Convention Closes.
Shawnee.—The Oklahoma Baptist
convention closed after one of the
most successful meetings in its his-
tory. Resolutions thanking Shawnee
for the hospitality extended were
adopted. Mangum was chosen as the
place for the next convention. The
report of the Baptist university, lo-
cated at Shawnee was heartily com-
mended and Shawnee was assured
that the university would remain here.

They Prefer Drafts
"In sending off the money for my life insurance," said a man,
"they asked me to send a bank draft. Why ain't my check all right?"
We answer: Because they are not acquainted with you. while our
bank is listed in the bank directories. They know us and know our
correspondents. Another thing, they might have to pay exchange on
your personal check, while our bank draft always goes at par. Then
again, if your check gets lost in the mail it takes much delay and cor-
respondence to get matters straightened out again, while if one of
our drafts is lost we can issue a duplicate without delay. A bank
draft is the cheapest and safest way to send money.
