HI- in ."in .in,l .1 i,.n;. -.-If..!,Mi. -. .!. .1 Jottings from the Extension Home Economist West Otter Tail County by Judith Nord Cabbage ranks with citrus fruits as a major source of vitamin C. When we cook cabbage, however, some of the vitamin C will be lost, depending on how long it is cooked and how much liquid is used. Cabbage is a weight watcher's best friend because one cup of shredded cabbage contains only 25 calories. If you need to add salad dressing, however, 1 tablespoon or regular mayonnaise or French dressing will add 65 calories. Even with the dressing, it's still a calorie bargain. For a new twist to cabbage salad: —Add chunks of orange or canned pineapple. —Shred a carrot or an apple, skin and all. —Add pieces of cut up green pepper or sweet onion. —Add salted peanuts as you toss the cabbage with the dressing. Any way you fix cabbage, whether raw or cooked, it's a nutrition bonus for your family. For a hot cabbage dish, this method of quick steaming with butter and water makes for a satisfying dish. PannedCabbage In a large skillet or pan with tight fitting lid: —Melt 1 tablespoon butter, margarine or meat drippings —Add salt and pepper —Add enough shredded cabbage for your family —Add Vt cup water. Put on pan cover to hold in steam. —Cook over low heat until vegetable is just tender (about 5 minutes). Stir occasionally to keep from sticking. You may need to add a little more water. —Serve hot. There's a lot of cabbage around. Maybe it's because there are about 9,000 seeds in one ounce of cabbage seeds. QUESTION: This beautiful 13-inch ewer is decorated with bright-colored peacock feathers on a blue and white ground with heavy gold trim. It is marked on the base with a castle, the words "Old Hall," and the number 1790, incorporated with the mark. Could you estimate the value of this piece? Mrs. C.A.L. ANSWER: If perfect, your fine example of English earthenware is worth about $80. QUESTION: Recently I went a little overboard and purchased my wife a handsome old hat box covered with printed paper — a picturesque rural scene. The pattern is repeated three times, on the sides and on the lid, of this oblong box. From my wife's enclosed sketch, can you tell us if this box is American or European, and about when it dates? We are told that these were popular abfore 1850. E.P. ANSWER: Your information was correct. Generally speaking, the landscape scenes, like those on your bandbox, date in the first quarter of the last century. Most of those decorated with historical scenes date after 1820, with animal and hunting scenes being popular in the 1830s-1840s. These boxes were primarily used for storage and for transporting clothing, hats or other personal effects. They were made in England and on the Continent, but these examples were rarely decorated as colorfully as their American counterparts. The paper used to cover your box appears to be American in origin. container. What is your opinion? Mrs. L.D. ANSWER: Your husband is right. With the tin container it is worth about $35, and without it, the value of your churn would be less than half the price quoted. QUESTION: My mother would like to know something about an unusual vase she bought years ago. The exterior surface is completely covered with a very coarse texture-like porcelain. This vase is bulbous, having a pretty red rose attached to one side, and is marked with only the word LEAR. Can you tell her anything about the origin and age of this piece? Mrs. O.L. ANSWER: This impressed mark was used on earth- enwares made by Samuel Lear of Hanley, England, from 1877 to 1886. Fergus Falls (Mi.)

Get off the hook, both of you will feel better By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I was really surprised when Joyce asked me to be maid of honor for her wedding. We've been classmates for years, but go with different kids. I can't understand why she chose me. She has many much closer friends. I accepted because I didn't know how to refuse, but now I'm sorry, and I'd like to get out of it. I've already paid Joyce's mom for the dress, but it hasn't been altered. My mom and I gave a shower for Joyce. We invited her mom, sisters, aunts and friends, and they all acted like they were slumming. They openly snubbed my mom. I had a lump in my throat the whole time. My family says if I am in the wedding party they will go to the church only to see me, but not to the reception. My dad says he won't go at all. They didn't invite my slcady boy friend to be my escort, so I won't have anybody to talk to at the reception. At the last minute, should I say I have an illness in the family, and can't go? Or just tell them the truth? DILEMMA D. DEAK DILEMMA: Don't lie. Tell your friend that you have reconsidered and would like out. From what you say, she'll be as glad to get off the hook as you will. DEAR ABBY: I am a widow in my 70s and I need some advice. I have four daughters, and if 1 asked them, I'd get four different answers. A few months ago I saw in the obituary column where tfie wife of an old boy friend of mine died, so I wailed for what I thought was a reasonable length of time and then I wrote him a note and gave him my phone number and said it would be nice to talk to him some time. He called me up and we talked for a long time. In the conversation he said he'd like to see me again, but he hoped I wouldn't expect any "kid stuff" in the love-making department. I ralhcr got the idea that he was trying to tell me that he was too old for lhat sort of thing. Well, I'm not, and if that is what he meant I don't want to waste my time with him as I don't have a whole lot of time left. How can I find out without being too blunt? OLD BUT NOT TOO OLD DEAR OLD: I think he was trying to tell you that as fir as he was concerned, his love-making days were behind him. Whether (hey are is anybody's guess, but if he thinks they are, they are. DEAR ABBY: With regard to your reference to the "hw" requiring the presence of a nurse during a gynecological examination: An Irish doctor attributed it to the conceit of American women. I am a gynecologist who has practiced for 40 years, and 1 have always had a nurse present during examinations, but to my knowledge no law exists which requires it. Physicians in other countries, not being fair game for any and all "suit happy" patients, may have a hard lime understanding this necessary precaution. My colleagues in the U. S. A. do. And they had better! H. H. S. [M. D.) DEAR M.D.: As I understand It, there is no such "law" —it's just a common practice among physicians. And a wise one, for obvious reasons. For Abby's bcokfet, "How (* H»re * Lovely Wcdtog." d tl to Abigail V«» Bun, 1» Luky Dr., Bereriy HOb, Can onions be frozen successfully? Yes, if chopped, blanched for Hi minutes, chilled, and stored at 0 degrees for not more than three to six months. QUESTION: I would like to know the value of an old butter churn marked Dazey Churn & Mfg. Co., St. Louis, Missouri, Patented December 18, 1917. All parts work perfectly well. The Churn can be operated by turning an iron wheel, 8',4 inches in diameter (has an attached handle). The original box that held the cream used to make the butter was tin, but it was so badly rusted that I had a pine box made the exact size. This box fits into an iron-footed frame. My husband feels that the churn would be far more valuable if we retain the tin Personal and Social QUESTION: I have inherited a Newel-post lamp made of bronze metal that is electrified. It was made during the Art Nouveau period, is 26 inches high with a wooden base. It is marked here "EGLANTINE par Rouseau," and the metal nude figure is also signed "Rouseau." We would like very much to know what such a grotesque-type lamp might be worth should we decide we don't want to keep it. Also, I should like to tell you that the nude previously mentioned holds two jeweled lights. Mrs. T.A. ANSWER: Umps like you have described are selling in the $125-$175 price range.
