Guthrie's Recall Vetoed
Action of the district court of Lo
gan county in granting a writ of man
damus to compell R. N. Dunham, city
clerk of Guthrie, to certify to the cor-
rectness and validity of a petition
seeking the recall of Mayor J. E. Niss-
ley, was reversed by the supreme court
in an opinion given by Justice F. E,
Guthrie has the commission form of
government, and under Its charter the
city clerk is given authority to review
petitions asking the recall of city of-
ficials, and to determine whether they
are sufficient. A petition was circu-
lated asking the city commissioners to
call an election to vote on the recall
of Mayor Nisslcy. After reviewing
ihe petition Dunham held it was in-
sufficient, and refused to certify it to
Application was made to district
court for a mandamus to compel Dun-
ham to act, and was granted. Dun-
ham appealed to the supreme court.
In determining the case, Judge
Riddle holds that the powers con-
ferred on the city clerk by the char-
ier, are discretionary and not subject
.o control by court orders. Only min-
isterial duties, he says, are subject
to mandamus. In case (he city clerk
would arbitrarily refuse to perform
his discretionary powers, then a writ
yf mandamus, lie says, should issue.

Proper Food Put Him Right.
The food experience of a physician
In his own case when worn and weak
from sickness and when needing nour-
ishment the worst way, is valuable:
"An attack of grip, so severe it came
near making an end of mo, left my
stomach in such condition I could not
retain any ordluary food. I knew of
course that I must have food nourish-
ment or I could never recover.
"I began to take four teaspoonfuls
of Grape-Nuts and cream three times
a day and for 2 weeks this was almost
my only food. It tasted so delicious
that 1 enjoyed it immensely and my
stomach handled it perfectly from the
first mouthful. It was bo nourishing
I was quickly built back to normal
health and strength.
“Grape-Nuts is of great value as food
to Bustalu life during serious attacks
in which the stomach Is so deranged
It cannot digest and assimilate other
"I am convinced that were Grape-
Nuts more widely used by physicians.
It would save many lives that are oth-
erwise lost from lack of nourishment.”

The last time Governor Cruce left
the state was in June. 1913, when he
went to Kansas City to attend an in-
surance men’s banquet. During his
absence McAlesler granted a number
of pardons, and attempted to validate

rejected by Governor Cruce.

A different condition exists now
than there did the last time he left
the state, the governor said last week.
There is nothing that could be done
that would make any material change
in administration policies. The act

placed certain restrictions on the use
of the executive pardoning power. Un-

Assessed valuation of all property
in Oklahoma City was $69,322,088 for
1914. In 1896 tlie valuation was re-
corded at $1,505,312. By 1902 values
had increased to only $2,812,910 and
as late as 1905 the amount had reached
only $4,715,154. From this on to 1907
values climbed steadily. In 1909 and
1910 tremendous increases were made.
Since then increases have been grad-
ually made until the enormous total of
1914 was readied.

PREPARING THE SALAD
IMPORTANT POINTS THAT MUST
Flavor Should Be Varied, and That la
by No Meant a Hard Task—Mix
the Dish Immediately Be-
Avoid giving all salads the same
taste by flavoring them with some
condiment one is perhaps over-fond
of. Variety is the main spice of
salads as of life. While connoisseurs
all agree that pure, fresh olive oil Is
the best for salads, there are people
who prefer the fat smoked bacon and
relish its flavor above all else.
It 1b well to remember that we
should know how to substitute one
condiment or another, if necessary,
and not go saladless for want of one
particular flavoring material.
Salt is perhaps the one indispensa-
ble seasoning, and of all flavoring
substances the onion Is the most valu-
able and enjoyable to all, even to
those who would not willingly eat
the salad if they knew the onion h-.d
been used. For use in salads, how-
ever, the onions must be mild In flavor
and their presence cunningly con-
Salads of all kinds should be gently
handled. That is, they should not be
heavily turned, but mixed In a very
large bowl, by running the fork and
spoon down the sides of the dish and
then gently tossing the salad with an
upward movement, letting it mix as It
In mixing a plain lettuce or other
green salad It Is well to put the oil on
first and then carefully toss the leaves
about until all are covered, In every
part, with a thin coating of the oil.
Then add the other Ingredients and
toss again. A small quantity of oil
is sufficient when this method of thor-
ough mixing is observed.
Lettuce should always be very care-
fully cleaned several hours before it Is
wanted and then wrapped in a wet
cloth and put directly on ice until it Is
A salad should never be mixed un-
til Just before It Is to be served.
The various accompaniments of a
salad add much to its attractiveness.
One thing full of possibilities Is the
wafer. These should always be crisp,
and if they are damp they can bo
crisped in the oven. Small wafers
flavored with cheese are delicious with
salad. So are thin salt wafers dotted
with butter and sprinkled with pep-
per and browned in the oven. These
should be served hot.
Then there Is the cheese of various
sorts that is served with salad. Im-
ported cheese, naturally, is going up
in price because of the war. but noth-
ing is better than Philadelphia cream
cheese, made into little balls and
rolled in ground nut meats, or with
two halves of walnuts or pecans
pressed into the sides of a cheese
American domestic cheese sprinkled
on wafers which are heated in the
oven is also decidedly appetizing.
Clean Up Rubbish.
If you, the housewife, get a wee bit
tired of the daily round sometimes,
vow a vow and keep it.
Eatfi. Tioubscleaning- time throw
away or give away or sell everything
that you do not need. Let all the
rooms have nothing superfluous, but
be particular to have the sleeping
rooms so simply furnished that five
minutes will suffice to set one in order
and one hour to clean It thoroughly.
Evaporated Apple Pies.
One-quarter box of evaporated ap-
ples and one half pound of rhubarb
to a pie. Soak the apples over night
Peel and cut rhubarb In small piece t.
Use the usual amount of sugar for ap-
ple pies, a pinch of salt and a few
bits of butter. Can use a Iktle spies
If you like. The rhubarb gives th«
flavor of green apples.
