Test It by dropping1 in a small spoon- .ful of batter. If this does "not rise" quickly to the surface, swell rapidly and acquire a iight brmcn hue. your fat..

Following "the general'rifle's, come ten 'recipes for different" kinds 'of fritters. for .which, I have not room here and .now. "fritter that absorbs grease is a spoiled fritter. The fat should be so hot as to sear the batter the instant it touches it.

It should be perfectly dry after lying upon the paper'for a minute that tho few drops clinging1 to the "nearskSr." may trickie harmlessly into space. Should the "offering" collapse "into a- dispirited mass, the batter is too thin. Hence, an sflded reason for testing it wjfn. .a small bit in the beginning." If It shrink and- flatten when removed from the deep fat paper-lined colander, you" may1 yet save th'e day by adding a little I w.ouJd. in conclusion, .emphasize the "deep A Scotch kettle.

Tour idea as" to the comparative clean- liness of woolen wash- ed once a winter and cotton- garments that go into the tuib every week are sane. But for the danger of the wear- ers of gingham and calico catching fire, in the winter, your plan is unexception- able. ,We have printed" several formulas for making noor-flllers. I. dp not know to refer. Somebody will du- plicate it. I "do-u'bt not. The mixed salad is acceptable, now that the season for "Spring is upon us: To Know'Real Amber C. A. B. (if. D.) offered last winter to give information, as to tht wearing ot amber beads. May I ask him one Ques- tion? I will put it as briefly as I can frame It. How may the real amber be flistin- puished froin the Imitation? Having been afflicted, for years -with catarrh and inflammation of the throat, I should rejoice to get something1 to .re- lieve me in home measure. Mrs. C (Germamown. The doctor who v6lunte'ered in- formation respecting the- amber in which 'he ftas faith will answer you In. full sselng your query.-lvveii- ture one hint that may be helpful. Rub the amber to be tested with a bit of flannel until It warms under you hand. If it be genuine, the fric- tion will bring- out a resinous fra- grance. The imitation remains odor- less. j'ou may hold the .beads near enough to the fire or a radiator to heat them. The real amber re- sponds-with the balsamic smell. The imitation heats more slowly and Is scentless. A Rose Industry At the risk of being tedious to read- ers who are.not interested in the re- vlval of the graceful and poetic art ot making1 rose beada. I print one raora recipe for the manufacture. It differs somewhat from--those we have al- ready printed: I inclose' a formula i'or beads. It is timely, tor southern are already full of roses, and northern gnrdens will follow suit speedily. I likewise ofTer a formula "for rose pillows, which wiii delight these would make them, and give them rosy leaved filling for ;he dainty cushions In- stead of the musty aJTalrs generally kcown by the Ilose Beads Run the, fresh petals, through-.thVfood- chopper.

Do 'not let thorn touch one another. Do this upon n. fine, drj- day. If they are not too hard after the first drying, they may be- rolled: three times before they are strung. String upon a, ivire about the thickness of a hat- pin. Do no; sharpen the end, or beads- may split. Decorato them to suit yourself, ami lay asaia in the sun to..harden.
