PAGE SIX With the Hemp stead Home Agent Melva Bullington Apple Butter Hempstead county casning budgets are not complete until some jars of apple butter take their place on the shelf. From early New England colonial days i nthis country, making apple butter has been one of the most popular methods of preserving tpples. In the first place, it is a way of utilizing apples which will not keep long and cannot be used in other ways, and hence it is a matter of economy to preserve the min this way. Miss Gertrude E. Conant. extension nutritionist. University of Arkansas College of agriculture, j-oints out. Many recipes for making apple butter hi:Ve been handed down from mother to daughter since the early days. But most of these more thas century-old recipes take too long to prepare. Miss Conant suggests a "new fashioned" recipe. Wash the apples and cut in quarters, * removing any bruised or discolored portions. Place in a steam pressure cooker, addnig one pint water to each gallon of apples. Cook under 5 pound pressure for 15 minutes. Release the pressure, drain off the excess juice for jelly; then rub the pulp through a colander to remove skins, seeds and cores. I lo each quart of apple pulp, add one dozen red-hot cinnamon drops and two cups of sugar. Stir until the candy and sugar have dissolved, spread the pulp in shallow enameled pans, and place in the oven for about 45 minutes. The oven should be kept at about 225 de, grees F. It should be stirred occasionally to prevent burning. When the desired consistency is reached, the butter should be packed in sterilized pint jars, sealed, and processed 15 minutes in boiling water. EJectric Appliances Hempstead county rural families who have recently rurchascd electrical equipment are discovcrnig that their ' appliances are no better than the cord. Instructions concerning the selection and care of cords have recently been received at the home demonstration agent's office from Earl L. Arnold, Extension Agricultural Engineer, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Mr. Arnold compares the cord on an electric appliance to a "lifeline" through which the energy that operates the applir-nce passes. The appliance cannot operate properly unless this "lifeline" allows the electricity to reach the appliance safely at ijts full voltage. The usual appliance cord consists of two' small stranded copper wires insulated from each other and from things around them. High quality cords have a label attached to them indicating approval by the National Board of Fire Underwriters.

Winter legumes may be used toward fulfilling the soilbuilding allowance on ihe farm, Mr. Simmons said. Payments tor legumes under the AAA program is'at the rate of $1.50 an acre. The following winter legume varieties arc recommenced for this county: Hairy vetch, Bui- clover and hop clover.

They are made to look at, not to! use. the engineer advises. j If a cord is to give good service, | it must behandled carefully. Pinching the cord may break the'insulating material. Bending or twisting sharply, or continual bending at one place will eventually break some of the wires, crack the insulation, and possibly be the cause of fire. When it is necessary to replace a plug on the end of a cord, the end of the outer coverings should be .fastened with string or tape to keep it from fraying. When the outer surface of a cord becomes frayed 01 cracked, the cord snould be immediately replaced by a new one, Mr. Ar- With the CountyAgent Oliver L.

The Faifgs were more than a family, they were an institution. Rich in tradition, strongly united, they formed an alliance against the world, nnd Irom their satisfied point of view, Penelope was an outsider. She was a Fit/pcrcy. The FiUpercys lived a casual, boheminn life, in their liltle cottage, and it was always a question as to where their next penny was coming from. Yet it was with the gulden Penelope that young Jeff Flagg fell in love. None of the Flaggs wanted Jeff to marry Penelope and Penelope made it quite clear that her first glimpse of the Flaggs frightened her, nnd that though she liked Jeff she did not love him. But Jeff and Penelope were married in a strange ceremony, which took place only because doctors had given up hope of the bridegroom's recovery from an accident, and the Flaggs insisted that their son's last wish should be fulfilled. But Jeff did not die, and a loyal girl found herself faced with a double problem of winning the affection <it a family which despised her, and teaching herself to love a man whom she had been tricked into marrying.
