Sweet Potatoes and How to Prepare Them
Td know the «wwt potato was in
W><> long before the common potato; we
can tell nothing of its origin, iior does
it grow wild in any country. Always,
it must he cultivated and it does heat
in southern countries, though the well
known "Jersey sweet" is a splendid
deep yellow variety.
We consider this tnber only a veg
etnble bnt in India it is presergpd as a
sweetmeat in a clear, heavy syrup.
Japan makes sweet potato flour and
•akes haked from H are very good: not
nnlike the American pumpkin bread of
two or three generations ago.
But when a food is delicious in its
own simple goodness, as sweet potatoes
are, why should we want to change
their character or make them into anv-i
thing they are not?
"Yams," these vegetables are called
in the south and though the name is
incorrectly applied, it has come to
mean a very large and very sweet va
riety that seldom come far into the'
northern market, more's the pity.
To imitate its incomparable flavor we '
add sugar, honey or maple syrup to our i
more starchy sweet potatoes when we
cook them: though this inproves their
flavor, they are still inferior to the
southern article.
There are but three ways to cook
sweet potatoes according to the dictum
of those who know —the negTo cooks, of

had shocked her at first, but which did
not seem so dreadful as he kept on !

"Do you mean to say, Willoughby, |
"Willitun!" boomed Mrs. Carr in au j
awful voice—for she wanted to make
her husband understand that she still

"That's so—Miss Caroline," whisper

The little minister was rather taken
aback by the unexpected rush of busi

as soon as he had recovered from the
shock ol' finding three couplfs on his
hands he directed Dr. Willoughby and
Joan to stand up on the right side of
Doogan and Nell, while James Cluney
and Madge Carr were on their left.

Jack Doogan hesitated, as if he hard 1

intensely interested, repeated the in
