Elaborate Arrangements Started for
Charity Affair in Easter Week—
Wednesday Club Holds a DeUghtful
Concert This Morning
At a meeting held last evening at the
home of the Misses Pearson. 503 North
Front street, a committee was appoint
ed to arrange a benefit concert, an
"Old Folks' Concert," which will be
given Kaster week in the Technical
High school auditorium under the aus
pices of the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals. It is planned
to devote a part of the proceeds of the
concert to the Harrisburg war and home
relief fund.
The society gave a "Grandmothers'
• oncert in the Technical High school
on a previous Easter Monday night and
the affair proved such a success and so
delightful in every way that many re
quests were made for a repetition.
The participants in the '•Grand
mothers' Concert " were prominent men
and women of the city and the members
of the younger social set. The debu
tantes of that season took a conspicu
ous part in the cast and will do so
again this year. The music, costumes
and scenery were very beautiful and
all of the colonial days. The concert
was held in the setting of the parlors
of an obi colonial_ mansion and the
guests spent a delightful evening sing
ing the pretty, quaint ballads of long
ago. sewing carpet rags and knitting
the while. The choruses also were the
old-fashioned ones and thoroughly en
joyed by the large audience.
The committee is planning to have
the concert this year along similar
lines, but on a much more elaborate
scale, and no pains will be spared to
make it even more delightful than the
previous one.
The following were appointed to
have charge of the preliminaries:
Chairman. Miss Mary Harris Pearson:
music. Mrs. David Watts, Mrs. Carl Elv
and Mrs. Philip T. Meredith; decora
tions, Mrs. Charles A. Kunkel. Mrs.
Durbin; publicity. Miss Amelia Durbiti
and Miss Bashore, costumes, Mrs. Da
vid Watts, Mrs. Carl Brandes Kly, Mrs.
Meredith, Mrs. Kunkel, Mrs. McAllis
ter, Miss Katherine Irwin Kgle. Miss
Keliey, Miss Bashore and Miss Durbin.
Programs and tickets will be in
• harge of J. Clarence Funk and John
Any amount raised in excesr- of SOOO
will be given to the Harrisburg war

Get Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets
This is the .joyful cry of thousands
j since Dr. Edwards produced Olive Tab
i kets, the substitute for calomel.
Dr. Edwards, a practicing physician
for 17 years and calomel's old-time en
! rmy, discovered the formula for Olive
, Tablets while treating patients for
! chronic constipation and torpid livers.
Dr. Kdwards' Olive Tablets do not
| contain calomel, but a healing, soothing
i vegetable laxative.
| No griping is the "keynote" of these
i little sugar-coated, olive-colored tablets.
1 They cause the bowels and liver to act
| normally. They never force them to ifff
! natural action.
If you have a "dark brown moutli"
i now and then—a bad breath—a dull,
I tired feeling—sick headache—torpid
j liver and are constipated, you'll find
j quick, sure and only pleasant results
; from one or two little Dr. Edwards'
I Olive Tablets at bedtime.

U. S. Government Tests Show That Un
drawn Chickens Keep Much Better
Than Those That Have Been Fully
Washington, I). Dec. 9.—The
poultry handling specialists of the Unit
ed States Department of Agriculture
are urging housewives to buy their
chickens undrawn and with their heads
and feet still on. An undrawn chicken
they say shows its lack of freshness or
its unfitness for food muc'h more clear
ly than does a fuilv dressed bird, in the
dressing of nhi.h certain significant
signs can easily be removed by the
crafty poultry dresser.
Moreover, by actual government tests
as reported in circular No. 70 of the
Bureau of Chemistry, fully drawn
poultry with head and feet removed,
decompose the most rapidly, while un
drawn poultry keeps much better than
does poultry either wholly or partly
drawn. This is because ouce a chicen
is opened for cleaning, the delicate tis
sues in it are open to the bacteria of
the air, which multiply very rapidly and
soon destroy the flavor of t*iie chicken,
even if t'liey do not bring aibout actual
, utrefa.'tion. Tire undressed chicken is
far less likely to be contaminated in
this way. as the outer skin is a protec
tion agairst rite inroads of such bac
When the feet of chickens are re
moved, the housewife loses one of the
easiest met of determining whether
tje bird is young or dd. Voting chick
ens have smooth, clean feet anil shanks.
Old birds ha\o scaly, rough legs and
but,oils or spurs. The head of a dea.l
chicken gives very clear indications of

is nc<; fresh will rho« a greenish color
below the 'bill, sunken eyes, ami a
darkening 01 discoloration on t>be neck,
all of which iifdicato decay.
Shsaid See Entrails Withdrawn
The housewife should require that
the entrails of a chicken be not drawn,
or at least should have the butcher
draa- then in her presence. Moreover,
tee entrails of the chickens often show
diseased conditions the: are not evident
alter the bird is fully drawn. The
appearance of the entrails will help her
to tell whether the chicken is fresh and
whether it has been properly handled.
Entrails in a good chicken should be
almos:; empty, round, lirni in texture,
and s'holv.irg little red veins 'here and
(litre. If the intestines are full, the
'bird wps not starved for twenty-four
hours before killing, as it should have
been, or else sand was fed to it to in
crease its weight and work a fraud 011
t::e 'buyer. T; the animal heat was not
removed quickly and completely, the
roundness of the intestines will 'be lost
and tiie folds of the intestines will stick
together. There also will be an undue
amount of sl'minets and an unpleasant
odor 'vl.i •.! is noi found in a properly
chilled bird. There is, of course, aiwavs
some odor when the body cavity of a
bird is opened, even if it is just killed,
but t lis odor is qjite different from
the pronounced smell which comes with
decay. An unscrupulous dealer can not
foist bad birds on the housewife who
dresses the chickens herself and knows
how to interpret what she sees and

housewife w'het'her the bird has been

short hairs which have to be removed
by singeing. If a chicken has been
scalded, tfhe skin is 'hard, thick, close
to the muscles underneath and almost
free from these liairs. The skin of a
dry-picked chicken which has been
chilled in water lias lowf the powdery
look which is characteristic arod is
shiny, thicker than when air chilled,
and it is scarcely possible to see tJha
pink muscles underneath as one should
be aible to do. A water chilled chicken
is also a fraud to t'he buyer because it
a'bsords water, which is charged for at
chicken prices.
Housewives should insist on a drv
picked chicken, (because any wetting of
a chicken, aud especially scalding, les
sens or destroys the delicate flavor of
the meat.
How to Draw a Chicken
Following are t'he directions given
by the poultry-dressing specialists of
the department for drawing a chicken
at home:
(1) Hold the chicken bv tilie legs
and run it quiekly over the flame from
a losely twisted lighted newspaper
which, for safety, may be laid in a coal
bucket or ash tra.v. This will remove
the tine hairs. Remove anv pi>n feathers
with the aid of a shnr 1 ;', small knife
blade. The charred hair may 'be washed
off later.
(2) Cut the legs off well below t'he
knee .joint. If the legs are cut atbove
the knee joint, the flesh on the drum
srtick will be pull 'back from the end.
(3) Cut the head off, leaving as much
of the neck as possi'ble, then push the
skin of the neck ■bac'k and cut the neck
off close to the body. The envelope of
t!he remaining skin gives the dressed
bird a neater appearance. The neck
bones with the adihearing meat make a
valua'ble addition to the gi'blets. The
gullet and windpipe are. of course, on
the neck and must be pulled away.
How to Remove Entrails *
(4) To remove the entrails, make an
incision about 2>/ 2 inches in lengtih
across the abdomen and as close to the
vent, as possible. Jn making this in
cision, be careful not to penetrate the
intestine. Slip t'he fingers in first, and
gradually insert the whole hand
through tile flit into t'he body cavity.
Work the viscera loose from its attach
ments by sliding the fingers over t'he in
ner surface of the 'body walls. In this
way, after a little practice, the viscera
can 'be removed quickly and easily. The
lungs will almost invariaibly tear, leav
ing shreds sticking to the 'back. These,
ami the kidneys of the chicken, vv'hich
are two long, dark red bodies lying
each side of the backbone and firmly
fastened, should be removed in pieces.
The rest of the viscera, including the
crop which lies far front and just un
der the sk-in of the'breast, when loosen
ed will come out in a mess through the
incision. The intestine is still attached
to tihe bird at the vent. To separate it
cleanly, the tube should be picked up
just as close to the vent as possible
anil its contents pushed well back from
the vent. Then cut closely around t'lio
vent, holding the intestine tightly be
tween the fingers to insure cleanliness.
Run a stream of water through the slit
into the 'body cavity in such wise that
it flows out through the vent and clean?,
the sihort 'piece of intestine sftil 1 remain
ing. Then cut •bo't'h vent and intestine
away, leaviug a neat, round hole no
larger than is necessary.
Preparing the Giblets
To prepare the giblets, detach the
heart, gizzard and liver, taking great
care not to break the little green gall
bladder attached to the liver, which
contains a very bitter liquid which, if
allowed to es«ape, will give a bitter
flavor to the giblets and gravy. This
gall 'bladder is so close to the liver bhnl
some liver tissue must be cut away, to
be on t'he safe side. The color of a
healthy chicken liver may vary from
yellow to dark red. To prepare the
gizzard, hold it with the thin edge to
ward the palm of the hand and make
an incision the whole length along t'he
tfliick side, being 'careful merely to
cnt through the muscle, but not into
tho inner sac. Then open t'he gizzard as
you would a pocketfbook and remove
the inner sac which is full of gravel, if
possible without breaking it.
Finally, wash the chicken and gib
lets in clean, cold water, but do not
let. t'he chicken soak in the water, be
cause the finest flavors of the meat and
much nutritive material are dissolved
in the water.
Once the c'hirtken is dressed and
washed, put it at once in the coldest.
lace available and keep it there until it
is to be put on the fire. The 'best way is
to dress it just in time to go into the
