(Herald Photo by Lois Smith) They Make Mince Pie 'Makings' Years ago one of the chores i woman preparing jars, another which followed butchering on the lids, one filling the jars and the farm was making mince- someone else tightening the lids. meat. Although the practice is not as common today, it definitely is not a lost art. Women of the Church of the Brethren have capitalized on the fact that while people still like mince pie, most women do not make their own mincemeat. The Ladies Aid of the church made and canned mincemeat this year for the second time as a moneymaking project. They plan on making 40 quarts or more. The "batch" recently made turned out 46 quarts. To make this amount required one bushel plus one peck of apples, which the women peeled, chopped and cooked along with raisins, currants, several pounds of cooked, chopped beef, cider, sugar and spices. The mixture was cooked in large containers on the stove in the church basement and stirred with a long, wooden paddle which one woman's husband made. When the mixture was ready for canning, the women worked on an assembly line basis with one CWF Meets Mrs. Frank Holden presided at the C.W.F. meeting in First Christian Church annex Wednesday. Mrs. Roy W. Browning was lesson leader on the theme, "A New Testament C.W.F." Mrs. Albert Keefer reviewed a book by Elizabeth Elliott for the worship service. It was announced aschool of mission will be Sunday from 7 to 8:15 p.m. Rev. Ned Roberts will teach a class on Africa for youth and adults, and Mrs. R. D.

Members will be guests at a tea at Osawatomie on Nov. 9 when the speaker will be Helen Schwab, state C.W.F. executive secretary. She also will speak in Ottawa to the Naomi group af the annex on the evening of Nov Because the recipe for such a large amount would be impractical for the average housewife, the recipes below are for smaller amounts. Mrs. Fred Kissinger, RFD 2, provided the first recipe. She says the hint on boiling down the cider and adding dried fruits and citron came from her grandmother, the late Mrs. J. L. Hutchison. She also used the meat from the hog's head when using pork. Mrs. Kissinger says when they have a beef butchered, they have the neck meat packaged separately and labeled for mincemeat. This meat is good for the purpose because it needs slow, moist heat.

He reported the incident to the commission. It was found the deposit in the j hillside was kaolin, a disintegrated granite, which when used with clay permits it to be fired to make some of the finest porcelain in the world. The making of fine china then spread to Bavaria and the Scandinavian countries, and to England. In England there were no large beds of kaolin. In searching for a substitute it was found that bone ash made by burning bones of animals served the purpose well. It makes a china which has a slightly more bluish cast than china made from kaolin.
