I". - ' ' r .. :f Their Early Dishes Form Basis for Recipes Mrs. Kate Stafford Will Demonstrate at Star's Fourth Annual Free Cooking School Beginning March 15 Everybody knows Jack Homer. He was the boy who sat quietly in his corner eating his pie like a good child should. Then "he put in his thumb and pulled out a plum," and such thrift suggests the early American housewife's economy to Mrs. Kate Stafford, who is being spnsored by The Star in its fourth anneal free Cooking School beginning Tuesday, March 15, at the Saenger theater. The earliest cooks, Mrs, Stafford relates, were likely to produce a "plum" from almost any source for their usually large families. They preserved every morsel of food in the menus which they served dally, not the dainties and delicacies of the present day table, but good wholesome food, which is still dwelled upon by many old-timers. It was in these early kitchens that the famous American mince-meat had its origin. And the old "hasty-pudding" made in,great hanging kettles, with "Injun meat, water and a snack of salt," has been revamped and worked over a hundred ways into the tasty puddings of today. A woman has' thus related for history her account of a typical Saturday baking: ' "Early on Saturday morning the, oven was heated with twigs and mother always had ready a large pot of beans, an Indian pudding in a pan, and loaves of brown bread and wheat bread'. The first two stayed in from 'Saturday morning to Sunday noon, and she kept adding milk to the pudding. When we .drove home,,from In Shreveport, La.

He is survived by his widow, two daughters, Mrs. Joe Maher of Prescott and Mrs, Foster Wiggins of Hope; two granddaughters,- Elizabeth Ray and Charlene Faye Wiggins; two sisters, Mrs. C. Carlisle of Telephone, Texas; Mrs. G. W. Price of Slayton, Texas and one brother, Sam Hcnson of Wesleco, Texas. The body will be brought to Hope Thursday on the "Shreveporter," fast L. & A. train. Distrusts Banks Robbed of $4,450 Siloam Springs Resident's Clothing Also Taken by Hold-Up Trio SIAL'OAM SPRINGS, Ark.—(/p>— Had Carl Warren pf Siloam Springs heeded the admonition of the anti- hoarding commission he would be exactly $4,450 better off. Warren, a concrete worker, Wednesday was en route from his job near Watts, Okla., to his home here when three men accosted him and stripped horn of all his clothing which contained $4,450 that he had drawn from banks at vairous times recently. FANNY SAYS: OKU Thje bajJHuij to § goo* vi m >«H* meeting on Scnday, dinner was all ready;- and our Monday dinner was the same aa Sunday's, for it was wash day." There were countless breads and cakes—maize bread, the "johnny" cake, "rye-an-lnjun" bread, baked in irpn pots or among the ashes. The long baking necessary for these breads naturally produced extremely thick crusts. Not even these were wasted. They were made int a delicious dish known as "turkey," which particuarly delighted the childrhe. The early cooks soaked beans for many hours and cooked them just as long. Some of them pocred the hot beaps into a bowl with a strip of mi lin over it, hanging outside the bowl. When the beans were cold' and hardened into form, they were slipped out of the bowl and suspended by the muslin from a rafter—a frozen delicacy for .the school dinner pail. And cheese—;every kind! One old lady has recounted making her cheese in layers of green and white colored with sage; other cheese was colored with a tea made from, pigweed. Turkeys and fowls were frozen and hung aay, as was beck; pork Was smoked, frozen or salted. And.' pickling was another form of food preservation. All achieved with • unending labor, testing the strength and thrift of the housewife—nothing was brocght to her prepared. -And still the early cook produced. recipes which are the basis of many delicious' dishes which will be demonstrated in The Star's free Cooking School for Southwest Arkan- ,sas women. . InLoca^Rackef Fake Telephone Calls Put in Tuesday Night by Men in Auto A new kind of racket appeared in Hope Tuesday night, merchants revealed to this paper Thursday. Toward the close of business Tuesday night the Jphn P. Cox Drug company received a phone call asking that half a gallon of ice cream be delivered to the home of Mr. and Mrs. V..E. Smith, West Fifth street. Mr. Cox, driving out there in person, found the house dark, but there was a note pinned on the door advising him that Mr, Smith had stepped out for a few minutes and would return. Mr. Cox left the ice-cream at the door. Wednesday morning Mr. Smith brought half a gallon of melted cream to Mr, Cox's stpre and asked him what was Die idea. Shortly after the delivery of the cream Tuesday night, a similar phone call was received by the Checkered Cafe, asking that half a dozen sandwiches and a large order of ice cream be delivered to the old' Hotel Barlow annex on Pivision street. A negro porter went out from the cafe with the order, but arriving at the house, found the order was wanted by several men who were reclining in a car parked at the curb. They seized the order without paying for it and told 1 the negro to "beat it"—which he did. W. R. Ramsey, proprietor of the cafe, talking to 'Mr.' Cox, decided that the telephone calls were made by the same party of men. That they were local men familiar with the habits of Hope residents, appeared likely because they selected Mr, Smith's house on West Fifth street. The Smith family reitre early. The note was part of the plant, it is believed. But Miss Ruby Bettis, who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Smith returned home about 10 p. m. and a light being turned on in her room made the men afraid to come up on the porch, it is believed. They then telephoned the second order .to the Checkered cafe, it appears from the elapsed time between the two cals.
