HOMELY FAKE By "HOUSEWIFE." RECIPES 1T0R HOME-MADE JAMS. With a rush every year the jam. and preserving season comes. This year furnishes no exception. It would be more convenient if the jam-making did not follow so closely on tVBe Christmas festivities; and it would be pleasanter if it did not come in the hottest wea ther. The labor is in the summer, when it £eems wasted, with fresh fruit avail able for every meal, but the reward is in the winter, when the appetites are sharp, when the shops _ are bare of palatable fruit, and when the serried ranks of jars on the larder shelves are a very real solace. The fruit should be clean and dry, but not over-ripe. The sugar should be pure white, large-grained crystals. Steady boiling is essential.' If boiled too quickly, jams and jellies are apt to burn. Skimming must not be neglect ed, especially in the case of jellies. Of course, in stirring one always uses a wooden spoon. , It is scarcely" neces sary to say that absolute cleanliness of ev...

VEGETABLES SCARCE DRY WEATHER INFLUENCES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

VEGETABLES SCARCE DHY WEATHER INFLUENCES Surprise has been caused to house wives by the prices asked for certain vegetables, chiefly marrows, turks* caps, French beans, and green peas. No difficulty has been experienced by retailers in obtaining 4*4d a lb. for peas, and from 5d to 6d for French beans. As compared with last year, beans have almost trebled in value, while peas have nearly doubled. For a fair-sized marrow or turk's cap 1/- is paid. At this time last year the range for marrows and turks' caps was about 3d to 4^d, the latter price be ing the extreme limit. The scarcity at present is due to the absence of any considerable rainfall for some time past. Speaking at the Victoria Market, a leading wholesale merchant men tioned that the cultivation was chiefly in the hands of Chinese, who retail at the market. They had a tacit agreement to maintain prices on the j one level. ! "Of course," he continued, "current prices are perfectly legitimate, but there is little or no cutting...

HOUSEHOLD HELPS USEFUL HINTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

USEFUL HINTS When the color has been taken irom silks by acids it may be restored by ap plying1 a little hartshorn or sal volatile to the spot. Meat may be preserved, and any taint removed, by soaking it for a short time ih a solution of borax, or by cprinkling it with the dry powder. Game, poultry, hams and bacon may all be kept sweet in this manner. Milk cans should be washed with bo rax solution in the summer season.^ Borax powTder sprinkled over butter will preserve it. It can also be used by sprinkling it upon cloths wrapped round the butter. To remove hot water marks from Ja panese trays use sweet oil. Rub it in well till all marks disappear, then pol ish the tray with dry flour and a soft cloth. If the windows or screens are raised every day or two and the sills wiped with a damp cloth, the amount of dusting indoors will be considerably lessened.

CLEANING FURS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

GLEANING FURS Furs are not to be indiscriminately cleaned, or the same cleaning* substance used on every skin. Meal or powder must be wisely chosen, while the "lie" of the fur and the color are taken into thoughtful consideration. Here are a few suggestions for cleaning. Fox or Musquash demands fine saw dust moistened with benzine. Use a pad of soft muslin, rubbing gently to and fro, with the sawdust. For squirrel or chinchilla lay out these grey furs flat upon a table which has first been covered with a clean cloth. Hold the fur very firmly at each end, sprinkle pow dered staich over it, and with a clean muslin pad work th© powder till the wished-for result is un-! deniably achieved. Now beat upon the wrong side, with light strokes. Shake well, and rub down gently with a clean white cloth. Caracul or Astra chan require hot, dry bran. Spread generously over the fur, and rub in with a flannel -pad. Shake and beat gently, and finally smooth down with the usual clean cloth. &lt...
