The young; housekeeper will find that her food cook book tells her how to clean and prepare a chicken bought dressed at the market, but to answer some questions recently sent in by some young as well as more experienced housekeepers, I am going over the high point; here: Cleaning 81ng the bird over a flame, and remove the plnfeathers by using a stubby paring knife. If the head Is stCl on, cut it off, also feet and wing tips. Remove the oil sac at the base of the tall; slit the neck skin, loosen wind pipe and crop and pull out. Then push the neck skin and cut the neck off close to the body. Save this morsel for soup unless some member of your family likes the neck and demands It at the table. Make a slit in the fowl below the breast bone and loosen the Intestines from the back bone, being careful not to break them? pull on the gizzard firmly to loosen all the entrails. Cut around the vent so that Jhe intestines are unbroken and pull out. Remove heart, lung, kidneys and clotted blood. Discard entrails and clots. Allow cold water to run freely through the bird. Wash the heart, and liver; cut gizzard and remove sac carefully so as not to break it, then wash gizzard. Or buy a cleaned and dressed bird from your poultry dealer! When the bird Is washed It Is ready for cookery preparation. Boast Chicken Fin the cleaned and dried bird with the dressing, sew it up by first turn ing wings across the back then sew lng through the thick portion of the wings and body passing over the bone one way of the sewing and under the bone to return; tie firmly; press thighs against the body and sew the same way, sewing up opening also if it Is badly torn. Rub all with olive oil and lemon juice, or with soft butter, and season. Place on roasting pan and sear in the hot oven, at 500 degrees, F. Make a basting mixture one half cup butter and the same amount of hot water, keep this hot and use it in basting every ten or fifteen " Estelle's Question Box Dear Readers: Mrs. Margaret Bergeron Is the winner of the first prize in today's c ltett which was for the best group of 10 household hints.

HONORABLE MENTION HOUSEHOLD HINTS Mrs. Helen Holden Shelburne Falls, Mass. Did you know: 1. That a piece of floor linoleum on shelf and table tops and around the sink adds so much in neatness and ease in doing your work? Get some that will harmonize with the wallpaper If you can't match the floor covering. If a coat of varnish is applied at once it will stay bright and wear for years. 2. That it is very effective to cover your china cabinet shelves with straps of wallpaper to match , the room? 3. That if you slip a piece of sand paper between the clamp of the meat grinder and the shelf or table leaf it will prevent dents and keep the grinder firmly in place while you are working? 4. That the contents of the double boiler will cook much faster if the water in the outside boiler has been salted in the proportion of 14 cup salt to 2 quarts water? v 5. That newspapers crumpled and crowded into wet shoes at nighr will act like a blotter and absorb the dampness? In the morning the shoes will be soft and dry and the paper verv damn. 6. That if you save the ravellngs when you hem a new table cloth you can darn the thin places in worn ones and it will scarcely show? This Is also true In mending any article of apparel Take ravellngs from the seams of trousers or skirts to use as thread when darning. The repaired spot will be very inconspicuous. ' 7. That you can prevent rice or macaroni from boiling over, while cooking in an open kettle by buttering the Inside for two or three inches. 8. That the best label for fruit cans and Jill tumblers is small strips of adhesive tape? It isn't affected by dampness and the product remains labeled until used. Print the names with ink after the labels are attached. 9. That you needn't throw away the cream you thought was sweet and found it was Just turning sour? At that stage you can make it sweet by adding a pinch of soda, stir it in thoroughly and taste the cream, add a little more if necessary until the cream tastes sweet. Then you can use it as planned. 10. That you can remove leather stains from white stockings by using a solution of M oz. oxalic acid to 1 pint water? Apply to stains, rinse out and repeat until the stain is gone. Wash very thoroughly afterwards or the acid mav leave a mark of its own. HOUSEHOLD HINTS Mrs. Harry Stetson . Adams, Mass. 1. Canvas gloves make good pot holders and prevent oven burns and steam. Ssw a metal ring on each glove and hang by stove. . 2. To prevent fruit cake from burning on bottom, set cake pan in another pan with a layer of plain salt in the bottom. No matter how hot the oven, it will not burn. S. Smooth icing If boiled frosting begins to grain while beating, add quickly about one tablespoon of butter and beat well, also Improves flavor and keeps frosting moist. 4. An easy way to clean ducks or geese: Pluck the guard feathers and all coarse feathers, then with a cheap paint brush apply melted paraffin over the entire bird. Put in a cool place until the wax is hardened then take case knife and scrape hard. You will find all the down and small feathers come off with the paraffin. 5. Two or three stalks of celery added to cabbage while boiling lessens the disagreeable odor one objects to and rather adds to the flavoring of cabbage at same time. 6. Identifying dishes: Your dishes will return to you from sales or church suppers if you fasten a strip of adhesive tape to bottom of dish and write name plainly in Indelible ink. 7. TVi Tint. tnanA em-tains, but starch a tiny piece of the same to the curtains and Iron over hardly noticeable after done. 8. Add two tablespoons of chopped red or green peppers to corn pudding and corn cakes and note improvement. 1 . 9. In the picnic, season have a sandwich shelf in the pantry con taining ruch things as packages oi cheese, deviled meats and ham, pre- oared spreads, olives, pickles, pim entos, sardines, peanut butter, anchovy and lobster pastes. Jm8 and Jells. Keep witn n a suppiy oi paraffin paper, paper napkins, cups, and plates. 10. Let lemonade stand alter making say 2 hours. It becomes much sweeter and takes less sugar than the old way. I always save all fruit Juices and add pineapple especially good. FROZEN CHEESE SALAD Crumb 2 cups of fresh cottage cheese, season with salt and cayenne, add one half cup chopped nut meats and dozen stuffed olives cut fine. Whip one half cup thick cream, sweet, and mix Li. Mix all thoroughly then pack in small mold or baking powder tin which has close fitting top.

Make waterproof markers for use in the garden to note different varieties by writing with Ink on heavy glossy cardboand. When dry, dip in parraflne or white shellac 5. Use a few grains of rice to clean nursing bottles and other bottles difficult to clean. 6. Treat the new iron kettle or frying pan before using by cooking the dish filled with raw potato peel lngs and water. Otherwise the first food cooked in the dish will absorb an objectionable flavor and be ruin ed. 7. The flavoring expense may be much lessened if the habit is form ed of using either fresh or dried orange and lemon peel whenever possible. With scissors snip thin strips into mincemeat, steamed pud dings and fruitcakes and note the Improvement. Quite as good as the sugared variety and far less ex pensive. 8. Cut the dish washing by put ting flour or crumbs into a bag and coating the. fish, liver, salt pork, etc. Shake well until covered. Use the same method for putting sugar on doughnuts and crullers. - 9. Give the new shoes a polish Immediately with ordinary floor wax. The color will not be changed and the shoes do not spot easily, White oxfords treated in this man ner may be worn for weeks without using a cleanser, 10. Don't throw away the long strips of faded cretonne that have been used for draperies over the glass curtains.
