How to Fix the Turkey
What would Thanksgiving Day be
without the Thanksgiving dinner I
wonder? It is really the turkey that
makes the feast and in almost every
instance the bird is worthy the honor
given it.
Benjamin Franklin once wrote a plea
to make the turkey the National bird.
He said the turkey was a more re
spectable bird than the eagle; that it
was a native American too, and that
it was especially fitted for the proud
position because it would not hesitate
to attack a British soldier wearing a
red eoat should one invade its grounds.
It seems as though this was a sort of
a prophecy for certainly the turkey is
our emblem of peace, happiness and
prosperity this year.
Every family has notions of their
own concerning the best bird and when
it is possible oue is fattened for a
fortnight or more before it is led to the
block and through various processes ot
dressing, stuffing and roasting, .lust to
think about the various ways of fixing
the turkey hritigs a vision of juicy
richness before the eye. The turkey
is not a dry meat bird any longer for
the new roasters that are self-basting
keep the flesh moist.
To have the best flavor the fowl
should be killed at home and dressed
as soon as dead. After it is plucked
and dressed it should be singed and
plumped by being dipped for a fen
seconds into scalding water and then
into cold water. Then wipe inside and
outside the bird with a clean drv cloth

per cent, of them have completed the:
courses, and were awarded certificates

Professor T. I. Mail's, who has chargp

If you have 110 basting |iau you must
remember to baste your turkey every
ten minutes all the while it is roasting;
this is 110 light service but the way the
rich eeat of golden brown will grow
under vonr attention will repay you.
It you have the covered basting pan
you need only stuff the bird—T feel
sure you want smiling, though some
folks never make it—and season it and
put it in the pan and in the oven. The
length of time you will bake it will
depend 011 the size. Along toward the
lust period of baking open the baster
and dredge flour over the bird. Do not
cover again but let flour brown lightly.
Now close up the pan and finish the
1 ousting.
M'hen the cooking is finished put the
bird on a roomy platter and if you iu
-send carving it at the table omit all the
garnishes for these are iu the carver's
• way. Ham goes wonderfully well with
turkey meat so it is often used with it.
Little pig sausages too are liked with
li you are so fortunate as to have a
hig family of friends aud loved ones 011
iliis friendly day have both a turkey
and a small roast pig in tiie place of a
great basso profundo bird or two me
dium sized ones.
If you do this have baked, stuffed
tomatoes and baked apples too tucked
somewhere into the dinner for they will
lOimteract the too rich meats and per
mit you to enjoy the other good things.

Washington, D. C., Nov. 23.—An of

nounced that sensational reports that
'i the live stock fcot and mouth disease

had overheard two men equipped with
hypodermic syringes say something to
the effect that they would see that the
allies got precious little meat from the

at the door ,-f the Jitrgensens' cabin
on Upsalu island. We had landed

Joe and I stood hack while Ft afford
faced Uie door. It. was thrown open,
and a bl 1 ? gingerbread Swede demand

"I've just called around to take back

"Vot votes?"
"The blacks and silvers you stole."
"You are mailt!"
"Shut it!" cried Stafford. "Ten days

As he spoke I saw the wizened fig

"Then you rowed over to Kdith is kind

The big Swede snatched up a rifle by

"Get out of here," he cried, "or"—
He paused on catching sight of .loe and

"I'll go if you wish it." said Stafford
dangerously, "but if I do it'll be to re

"And look here, Mr. Dutchman."

"Who are you?" bellowed .Jurgensen.
"He's the man that told ine your

Linda Petersham.
NOVEMBER JOE had bidden me
farewell at the little siding
known by the picturesque t
name of Silent Water.
" 'Sped you'll be back again. Mr. j
Quaritch. as soon as you've fixed them j
new mining contracts, nud then, may- j
be. we'll try a wolf hunt. There's a j
tidy pack comes out on ttie Lac Nolr
ice when ii's moonlight."
But the shackles of business are not
so easily shaken off. and the spring
had already come before another vn- i
cation in the woods had begun to i
merge Into possibility. About this j
time Linda Petersham ram; me up on
the telephone and demanded my pres
ence at lunch.
"But 1 am engaged." said I "What
is It?" I
"I will tell you when you come. I
waut you."
I made another effort to explain my
position', but Linda had said her last
word and rung off. I smiled as I call-1

head crowned with golden hair, a pair
of dark bine eyes and a month wear

"Kalmuck.? I know it. is the place

"That is it. It's a place you'd lore
lots of good rooms and standing way

of view and a stream tumbling past
the very door. Father bought it last
rear and with it all tile snorting rights
Julius Fischer claimed. The woods are
full of moose, and there nre beaver and

"But Fischer had trouble from the
liay he went up to shoot at Kalmucks,
lie had to run for it. so I was told.
Didn't your father know that? Wbj
did Mr. Petersham have anything to

"Oh, it was just one of pop's no

rather weary tolerance of the modern

"Well, father went Into the mutter,
and he found that the squatters had a
good deal to be said for their side of

thought was fair by them. He paid
them good high prices for their rights,

The words were written upon a sheet

rail as follows:

"Which means, in plain language,

Linda's lip curled scornfully. "I

New York, Nov. Eight persons . i
are dead. two others are so badly burn j
ed that they may die, and seven more, j
including two fire captain?, are injured !
as the result of a fire of suspicious|
origin early yesterday which virtually!
destroyed a five-story jjriok tenement;
house ou East Twenty-ninth-street. As!
a result of disclosures made to the po !
lice by a tenant who has been receiv

year, and upon whom a demand for J
SI,OOO was made Friday under threat i
of bodily harm, detectives last . night j
were seeking men known to them as
Black Hand leaden, whom they suspect j
of responsibility for the fire.
Panic which seized the tenants when
they were aroused by rescuers caused!
the loss of life, the police say, as the!
building was amply equipped with tire |
escapes. Seven bodies were found ii; '
the hallway on the top floor, near a
stairway leading to the roof, when the I
tlnmes had been subdued after a"
hour's fight by several fire companies
and two fire boats. Yesterday after->
noon Mr«. Annie L'atnldo, a tenant who
had been rescued, died from heart fail
