What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

These dishes will be • found on the table at eyery 1 family reunion, at every big fundtion in our cities and towns, at the little cottagd on the ht11, where motiter and father and their two little children are dining alone and, in fact, everywhere. The following recipes have been tried and are excellent: Plum Pudding.—One pound of but- ter, one pound of inlet, freed from strings and chopped fine; one pound of sugar, two and' one-half pounds of flour, two pounds of raisins, seeded,. chopped and dredged with flout; two pounds of curratrts, picked over care- fully after they are washed; one pound of citron (shred fine), twelve eggs, whites and yolks beaten separately; one pint of milk, one cupful of brandy, one -quarter ounce of cloves, one -quar- ter ounce of mace, two grated nut- megs. Cream the butter.end-sugar; beat in the yolks ,wheu you have whipped th_eni• striooth and light; next put in -\the milk,, then the -flour, alternately with the beaten whites; then the bran- kly and spice; lastly the fruit well •rliedged With flour. Mix • all - thorough- ly. Wring out your pudding cloth in hot water, flour well inside, pour in the tnixtve and non ,five hours. Miilice •:,•Pla.—....tik•o pounds of lean fresirbee'f, boiled, and when cold chop- 4ped tilieirone pound of beef suet, clear- sttings and minced to powder; five pounds of apples, pared and chop- ped; - two pounds of raisins, seeded and chopped; one pound of sultana raisins, washed and picked over;Swo pounds of currants, washed and carefully picked over; three-quarters of a pound of citron, cut up fine; two tablespoon- fuls of cinnamon, one teaspoonful of pOW4enisd nutmeg, two tablespoonfuls of made, one tablespoonful of cloves; one tablespoonful of allspice, one ta- - blespaonfal et - flue salt, 'two and one - halt pounds of brown sugar, one quart of brosiii 'aherry and' one pint Of best brandy. Keep in stone jars tied over with double covers. Add a little more liquor (if It should dry out) when you make a batch of pies. Let the mixture stand at least twenty-four hours after it is matte before it is used., ;iitrips Of pytry ` notched with a Jagging iron in crossbar pattern upon the pie instead of a top crust Oyster , Pie. ---Make a- rich puff pastel rail out twice as. thick as for a fruit pie for the top crust, about the ordi- nary thickness for the lower. Line a pudding dish with the thinner and till with crusts of dry bread or light crack- ers. Some use a folded towel to fill the interior of the pie, but the above expedient is preferable. Butter the edges of the dish, that you may be able to lift the upper crust without breaking. Cover the mock - pie with the thick crust, ornamented heavily at the edge that it may lie the more quietly, and bake. Cook the oysters as for a stew, only beating into them at the last two eggs and thickening with a spoonful of fine cracker crumbs. They should stew but five minutes, and time them so that the paste will be -baked just in, season to receive them. Lift the top crust, pour In the smoking hot oysters and send up hot. . r SEASON IN THE SOUTH.

New Englanders, following Puritan Initiative, make much of Thanksgiv- ing, but the resident of Dixieland cele- brates Christmas with all his might and main. Because. of the severity of weather, earth's deerearpet of snow, ironbound game laws or other reasons hunting Is ,more 'Or less restricted' in the north at this time. But there are rare joys for the game seeker In all that great sweep of country from Virginia to Texas. Fox bunting, quail and duck shooting and even the more prosaic rabbit chase are indulged in to the heart's content. It is the most typical of southern win- ter sports, however, that stirs the blood like a draft of wine when \Merry Christmas\ is in the air. NIgnts spent In chase of the possum or the coon, snappy days in the forests after deer or wild turkey, expeditions In canebrakes after bear—these make life worth living for the man who hunts for the love of hunting and warms to the local flavor and traditions of the south. An Old Christmas Carol. And all the bells on earth shall ring On Christmas day, on Christmas dart And all the bells on earth shall ring On Christmas day In the morning. And all the angels In heaven shall sing On Christmas day, on Christmas day; And all the angels in heaven shall sing On Christmas day In the morning. And all the souls on earth shall sing On Christmas day, on Christmas day; And all the souls on earth shall sinf; On Christmas day in the morning. fhen,let pa all rejoice amain On Christmas day. on Christmas day: Then let Us all rejoice amain On Christmas day in the morning. Wrapping the Present. Use a heavy brown paper to wrap the Christmas box and a stout, strong cord, taking care that the ends are not cut too closely, making it possible tee the knot to become unfastened. Follies Some men state whete the ice is thin; Some rock the boat on summer days; Some cannot swim, but jump right in.. Oh, there are many, many ways Sy which men quit this vale of tears And go to meet untimely doom! Unloaded guns for years and yes Have cut off men in life's full bloom. A few men thaw out dynamite In ovens and are heard no more. A gas leak with a candle light Still others seek, and life is o'er, While others, groping in the dark For something that will cure &cold. Drink acid, and life's gentle spark Goes out before it's very old. All these are tricks that Wily breeds, And repetition dulls them not; Men still perform such silly deeds And quit this bright and festive spot. But there's one other bids as pause, It ends full manya worth's days— Some men while playing 13anta Claus Still let their whiskers find a blaze. —Detroit Free Press. -WHITE HOUSE CHRISTMAS. How the Day is Spent by the President and His Family. Christmas In the home of the presi- dent is much the same as In any other American home, except perhaps there is more of It. Mr. Taft. following the • custom of his predecessors, &Voted the day to his fernily., little or no büsi rp - ,1 being transacted. There were tur- keys from many parts of the land, and, moreover, a turkey was given to each man of family on the White House staff. There was a multitude of presents for each member of the fanal ly. Of course the youngest of the Tufts, Aiaster Charley, had the lion's share. In the Roosevelt days the White House became a museum of toys on Christmas day. The president was the biggest boy of all, and his whole day was given up to the children. The dinner was celebrated in the middle of the day,' after the old Dutch cus- tom, although, of course, there was the state banquet in the evening. Since the days of James Buchanan Christmas, with but few exceptions, lies been elaborately celebrated in the White House. Before that Pierce and Fillmore each had his days in the his- toric mansion saddened by sorrow. But with these two exceptions and a few Minor ones the Christmas festival Was duly celebrated by the presidents from Washington down. Even during the terrible days of the civil war Pres- ident and Mrs. Lincoln always made It a point to gladden the hearts of the children at Yuletide. There was a large and happy family during the oc- cupancy of the Grants, and the Christ- mas tree was always heavily , laden. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 < , 06 , ',(s0 0000000000000.50 • 000 WHEi%1 OHRISTMA9 COMES IN BILLVILLE.

Those who have heard the - Waits and carol- ers -eliq \Hark; the Herald Angels Sing!\ on -Christmas eve will be aston- ished - to know that many years ago it was rendered \Hark How All the Welkin {prigs!\ and was sung to the tune of - c'See, the Conquering Hero - Comes.\ When this former — wording was adopted in the new hymn book of the \Hymns Ancient and Modern,\ there was a great storm of criticism from those who prefer the modern ver- sion. The hymn was Written by Charles Wesley. The author -of \Christians. Awake; Salute the Happy Merril\ ,was John Byrom, Manchester's' famons man of letters, who was born at Kersal in 1001. Byrom had several children, but, like many another father, there was a fa- vorite. This child was A little girl named Dolly. A few days previous to Christmas Mr. Byrom, after having a romp with the favorite, Dolly. promised to write her something nice for Christmas morning, On the morn - trig of the great day, when she hat down to •breakfast, she found 011 her plate an efivelope,, addressed to her In her father's handwriting. • It was the first thing she opened, and, to her great delight, it proved to be a Christ- mas carol addressed to her. and to her alone. • • Another very popular Christmas hymn is that entitled \As With Glad- ness Men of It Is remarkable that this cheerful, hymn was written at a time of great depression. ' The author, William Chatterton Dix, who died in 1900, had been eerloutily In for a long time, and he was feeling dis- consolate and miserable. One evening, after he had been some weeks in bed, he felt a great deal better, and while in this improved state be conceived the Idea of •wriling a Christmas hymn, and as a result of this we get \As With Oladness Men of Old.\ \Once In Royal David's City\ Is the most popular Christmas hymn for chil- dren. Ft was written by Mrs. Alex- ander, who also wrote those famous hymns, \There Is a Green Hill Far Away\ and \We Are but Little Chil- dren Wert.\ Wolooms Christmas. Now thrice welcome. Christmas. Which brings us good cheer, Mince pies and plum porridge, Dood ale and strong beer, With pig, goose and capon, The best that may he, So wetl cloth the weather And stomachs agree —01d Song.
