A few easy pastry rules to remember: " , How often I have heard the new housekeeper remark, "I can make anything else, but I just can't make good pastry." ; Once you know the trick, however, to make flaky, crisp pastry la a simple and a quick process. Perhaps there are several tricks, but they all are simple and easily acquired. Use pastry flour if possible. Have your shortening very pold. Any kind of fat may he used. Cut the fat into the flour with a knife. Do not rub /together with the lingers < unless you have very cold hands. ' Add only enough water to make the pastry stick together, as it will not bo tender when extra flour must be added to .make it dry enough to roll. ChUJ the pastry before rolling. Pastry may be made up and kept in the icebox ready for use. ' Roll lightly on a smooth surface. Bake pastry in a hot oven. For pastry sheila and for pies such as mince, whose tilling does not require cooking, use a hot oven the whole time. For fruit and custard pies which require a longer cooking, use a hot oven for ten minutes, then lower the temperature. Besides these big tricks, there are a few special pointers which apply to certain' pies. A little flour and granulated sugar mixed together and sprinkled on the lower crust of a fruit pie by brushing the lower edge with cold water and pressing the two edges together. The lower crust may be cut half un inch larger than the upper crust and turned over as a com* plete seal, or an extra rim of crust may be pressed over the two edges. Bake a pastry shell on the back of a pan. To prevent shrinking prick all over with a fork before placing In the oven. To make a velvety meringue for the top of a pie beat the whites of the eggs until foamy, beat In powdered sugar gradually, and continue beating until stiff enough to hold its shape. Brown in a moderate oven, ' Pastry. 1% cupa flour Vi teaspoon salt '/4 cup fat Cold water. Sift together the flour and salt. Cut In the fat with two case knives. For a large quantity a wooden bowl and a chopping knife may be used. When line, add at one side of the bowl one tablespoon of cold water and stir in as much of the flour and fat as the water will take up. Continue this until you have four or live balls of dough and some dry flour left in the bowl. Press together with your lingers. If u.11 the dry flour Is not taken up, add a )lttle more water. Chill and roll. (Copyright, 1830, by The Bell Syndlcftte, Inc.)

No Money Down-'/Two Years To Pay NEW GAS RANGE IS FOLLY AUTOMATIC , Did you ever hear .of a gas range that Wbuld light Itseff? Well, neither did we 4 until Just recently. But it's a fact thAl. you c*h now secure a"*gas range for your home and it is never necessary for you to carry any matches In the house to light the burners. Neither do you have to press any buttons or in any bthef way Ignite the gas When the burner Valve is turned on. When the handle of-the valve is turned, the burner instantly lights. That is all there is to it when you have the Insta-Flame on ( your y gas range. No fuss nor bother, no matches nor pressing of buttons. Just turn on the gas valve for the burner you want to use And "pftsto*? the burner is lighted. It's a marvelous invention and so simple that we wonder why it was not thought of" years ago. -And we wander how we have -been able to get along all these years without the aid of such a device as the lnsta»Flatne. Any burner on the gas range lights instantly when the gas is turned on. And that means the oven too as well as the simmering burner. Can you realize the advantage of not having to light a match and turn on the gas into the oven burner, stoop over and open the oven door and then—fearing that you may get your hand or arm burned you insert the lighted match into the oven and the escaping gas from the burner is ignited. Now, all you dp is turn on the handle of the gas valve (controlling the oven burner and the burner instantly lights .without any further effort on your part. The Inata-Flame puts an end to a great many of your worries. It is positive in action, both on and off. There is no possibility of any gas escaping. >If a child should mischievously turn on a gas valve for one of the burners on the gas range/ nothing serious will happen even.-though you are not in the room and. did not know that the gas was 'turned on. All that will happen is that' the burner' will light. No unburned gas will be left to escape into the room. Also the Insta-Flame puts at an end your worries about fire because you do not need to strike matches in lighting your gas range. The gaa and the gas flame are always under perfect* control with the dependable Insta-Flame. It is simple, practical, sturdy and there Is nothing to get out of order and no danger of breakage. VALUABLE LAND IS DEDICATED^ COW (By United Frees.) CHICAGO, May 31.—There will be an open highway in the heart of Chicago's busy loop for the use of Bessie, the Baaaett cow, despite the traffic regulations which are very clear on the subject of herding. cattle through the city -streets. While Bessie is not as famous as Chicago's other bovine celebrity, the one which has the honor of overturning, the lamp that .ignited Mrs. O'Leary'g barn, and a goodly portion of Chicago besides, and while . the 'Chicago \ Historical society.' hasn't erected a, bronze tablet in her honor, she or her successors have a mantic, and' incidentally more expensive monument. , Her private cow path at Clark and Monroe 'streets, still lives and awaits her return. So that Chicagoans may know of the cow path and ,of Bessie, and that they may be fittingly honored,as has Mrs. O'Leary's pet, R. P. Mulvaney, official -, custodian of the path, plans to remove'. the present swinging doors and replace them with a more elaborate gateway. At present the path is guarded by bronze doors which are never closed and have no locks. Mulvaney would replace them with doors with panels upon which would be replicas of Bessie and the old homestead in base relief. The cow path dates from the early 60'a when Dr. Jared Bassett bought the entire Clark steer frontage, 160 feet deep, between Monroe and Madison streets. In the center of the block he built his home with a cow barn Ijor Bessie. As time went on, Dr. , Bassett sold most of his property but always with a provision for a ten foot easement so that' Bessie could make her way to the barn'. . So in 1925 when the 10Q West Monroe Building 1 corporation took over the lease for the property they found the flaw,which preserved the path but too late to do anything about it. While their solution of the problem was a little, costly, it was rather unusual, for they usurped the air rights and left Bessie her 10-foot path with an 18-foot clearance, just in cft«« «tre 1 should desire to brlftg in « wagon load of hay some time. Above the 18-foot level the building Jutu out at right angle*, covering the cow path and extending upward for twenty stories.
