Instead of letting the sugar short-

wife Is bending all efforts to learn the
(test ways of using less sugar In her
looking and preserving and of can-
ilng without it or with sugar substi-
tutes. She is drying many of the
fruits; she is learning to put up fruit
luices and butters and to make sirups
it home from sugar beets, quinces and
ipples. She is substituting corn sirup,
molasses, maple sirup, and honey for
Mtgar in her canning and general cook-
,ng, and she is making sugarless can-
lies, fruit pastes and confections. ISul-

Sugar saving not only means cutting

Serve fresh fruits without sugar in-
stead of sweet puddings; have salads

Iried fruits like dates, raisins or figs
tvith the breakfast cereals, or a little
sirup in place of sugar. Use cake
sparingly and make it from recipes
that call for molasses or sirups—in-
stead of frosting spread it with a
little jam, fruit butter, or paste.
Canning Without Sugar.
Fruits canned without sugar keep
perfectly but will not have the fine
;olor and flavor which they would

Jesserts, pie fillings, lees bml in fruit

and their uses are Just as varied dur-
ing the winter months as are the
fruits put lip unsweetened. In this
way, the juices are kept available for
lelly-inaklng at a future time when
sugar raay be more plentiful.
Many home demonstration agents
have already substituted sirups suc-
cessfully for sugar in their recipes for
running and preserving. Very satis-
factory results may be secured If when
tine pound of sugar is called for in a
recipe two-thirds of a pound of corn
sirup is used and one-tlilrd of a pound
nf sugar. Where sorghum and cane
sirups are used without first clarify-
ing the sirups the product will be
tlarker. These sirups, also, Impart a
flavor which destroys the natural fruit
flavor, so the addition of spices to the
recipes Is sometimes advisable. Honey
has been used successfully with cher-
ries and peaches; in such cases the
lmount of liquid called for in the
sirup Is reduced one-quarter cupful
for each cupful of honey.
The following are some of the best
recipes used by the agents:
3 pounds crushed blackberries.
pound New Orleans molasses or sor-
\ pound sugar.
Cook all together, stirring carefully
until It gives a good jelly test. Pack
hot into hot jars and seal.
2 pounds peaches.
Va cupl'ul peach juice.
J,a teaspoonful allspice.
1 cupful corn sirup.
1 cupful sugar.
2 toaspoonfuls brr.ken stick cinnamon.
1 teaspoonful cluvr.s,
1 inch ginger root.
Tie spices in cheesecloth bag and
cook all together uutil bright and clear.

Take one quart of apple pulp, from
which the juice has been extracted for
jelly making, and cook it with one cup-
ful of corn sirup uutil the mass

and deal at once.
Add one cupful of corn sirup to two
cupfuls of grape pulp from which juice

Efuinants of cereal breakfast foods
j may often' be utilized to make pala-
table dishes, to thicken soups or other
foods, and in si.nilar ways. Small
quantities of cooked cereal left over
from a meal can be molded iu cups
and reheated for later use by setting
the cups in boiling water. Another
way to economize cereal mushes is to
add hot water to any mush left over
so as to make it very thin. It can
then easily be added to a new supply.
The practice of frying the left-overs of
boiled hominy or of cornmenl mush
is as old as the settlement of this
country, and the nursery song about
the "bag pudding the queen did make"
from King Arthur's barley meal shows
us that for centuries other cereal pud-
dings have been treated in the same
way. In oatmeal oysters, left-over
cereal is dipped in eggs und crumbs
and fried. Left-over rice and other
cereals are commonly used in cro-
quettes and puddings.
Squeeze the Juice of two lemons into
a bottle containing three ounces of
orchnrd white, shake well, und you
have a quarter pint of the best freckle,
sunburn and tan lotion, and complex-
ion whitener, at very, very small cost.
Your grocer has the lemons and
any drug store or toilet counter will
supply three ounces of orchard white
for a few cents. Massage this sweetly
fragrant lotion into the face, neck,
arms and hands and see how freckles,
sunburn and tan disappear and how
clear, soft and white the skin becomes.

Fruit Juices and the pulp of cook «1
fruit, baked apples and pears, and
