By Logan Clendening, M.D. TN BEGINNING this second week of the second three-week period of the fall reducing diet, those who are still faithful to their observance of it must be beginning to realize the fun of being comparatively thin again. They must realize, too, that it would be folly and wastefulness to return to eating anything and everything in. any quan looking and attractive.

I have been very popular with a rwd of boys and girls with whom I have been going since my school days, but I have broken away from them and am now going with a gtoup of young people whs are very much more socially important than those that I went with before.

I am shouting from a soap box when I say that if a cake is worth the time and trouble it takes it Is worth the best ingredients.

DEAR MISS DIX I am 19 years of age and Bill is 21. We have been going together for three years and are very much in love.

Bill is still in college and is studying medicine, and it will be nine years before he will be in a position to support a wife.

Oct. 25 We believe that good deeds and a generous nature, as reflected In the face, contribute more toward real beauty than anything you can buy in jars.

The brine called for 4 quarts gherkins with 'i pound salt to 2 quarts water, soaked overnight. I did that. The next morning I washed them and made them up with 4 cups vinegar and 3 Vi cups sugar. Now they have been made week ago, and I want to open a jar and they are not firm they are soft. Could you tell me what is wrong with them.

I like to put up small ones again. Thanking you, MRS. J. LANGLOIS. Benjamin avenue.

ANSWER Pickles may soften for three reasons: The vinegar may be strong or not pure some vinegar is not sterilized and contains destructive chemicals (sometimes absorbed from tree sprays). Chipped granite kettles or spoons would create rust which could soften them (also be sure to use glass top jars), overcooking will also soften pickles. A small pinch of alum is used by some cooks always. While I do not use alum in my pickles I consulted the pickling expert in a large concern in town and he says 116 teaspoon of alum to each quart of pickles will do no harm and will keep them crisp if no other softening damage is being done. Be sure to watch these precautions and follow the.
