The nuts should be cracked, the ker

dons and fibres and chopped in a
wooden bowl; the chopping machine
crushes it. The spices should be meas

flour. The molasses may be measured
and set to one side. The currants
should he picked over and put in warm
water over night, and the raisins, too,
will need looking over.
The citron must be cut in thin, small
slices; if a little butter be robbed on
the knife and over the fingers this need
not be a sticky, unpleasant piece of
work. Now chop the orange and lemon

Here is the perfect Christmas pml
One cup of light brown sugar, one
cup of suet, two cups of seeded raisins,
one cup of currants, one-half cup of
citron and candied lemon and mange

Mix all these in a deep bowl. In an
other bowl sift three cups of flour con

nutmeg, and ginger; one-half teaspoon
of allspice, mace and cloves.
Stir the dry ingredients into the first
mixture, adding, as you stir, a cup of
sweet milk. When smooth the mixture
will be too moist and require more
flour; you must use your judgment in
regard to ihe quantity you add. The

| If the pudding is cooked in molds or
[tins, oil them well and then sift flour
in and shake it about; this prevents all
sticking. Small puddings weighing half
a pound will cook in forty minutes;
a large one will require from an hour
and a half to three hours.
All Knglish recipes call for brandy or
wine in mince pies and puddings. A
fine fruit flavor may be secured by
the American'housewife by using grape
I .juice, oraiige juice or any jelly in the
i place of the cup of milk called for.
An extra word of caution should bp
given in regard to this pudding swell
ing. l)o not fill the molds much more
than half full when you put them in the
steamer or oven.
A very pretty way to serve a Christ
mas pudding is to decorate it with a
wreath of holly around the platter and
put whipped cream over the top.
The sauce should be hot if the pud
ding is; not otherwise. One that is
best hot is made with a cup of sugar
creamed with half a cup of butter. Add
one unbeaten egg and a teaspoon of
flavoring. Put this in a porcelain pan
and set over boiling water; pour on
a third of a cup of hot water, stirring
meantime. Cook over the water heat

Cecil placed his hnnd upon the other
man's shoulder with a kindly smile.
"This Is my nephew. Bob Stanley,
Betty." he told her. "He Is In serious
trouble, and 1 wish you to hear all the
facta. We will calf It a family coun
cil." he added, smiling a little sadly.
Briefly the story was as follows:
Captain Robert Stanley had two
months before been the senior surviv
ing officer when the ragged remnanta
of a British column cut Its bloody way
to the heart of the tierce little outlaw
kingdom of Gokarnl. hidden away in
the Himalayan mountains, and storm
ed the palace from which had ema
nated the orders that had spread deso
lation along the border, and it was to
Captain Stanley that the maharajab
gravely offered his jeweled sword.
Now. it is not good for the future
peace of the Indian empire that such
an one as the king of Gokaral, who
had a son that would reign in his stead,
should be unduly humiliated and Cap
tain Stanley, devoutly trusting that his
unauthorized act would meet the ap
proval of the powers that were, begged
his majesty to keep bis blade as a boon
from the emperor of India.
The maharajah returned the steel to
its gold sheath.
"Had you touched It." he said, "mine
lionor would have l>een touched, and
my son. the mabarajah and his sons aft
er him. would have continued a blood
feud against the English. You serve
your king and emperor wisely as well
as with a stout sword. Wherefore you
are fit to bear (he message and token
of a king to a king. Aud the message
is this: Because it is obviously the will
of God—seeing that your handful have
overcome my thousands—that the em
peror of India he overlord of Gokaral,
the ma barn Jab will be faithful vassal
in the emperor's palace, though still
king in his own. And for token I will
send the Star of Gokaral."
Xot a man in Asia but had heard of
'he Star of Gokaral. It was not merely

thority of the state. Where it rested
abode the fealty of Gokarul. The fact
that it was n jewel of inestimable
value, consisting of nineteen pprfect
blue diamonds, each as large as the
Star of India, was a small matter com
pared to its political significance.
Captain Stanley duly landed In Eng

responsibility had lain heavily upon
him. and he felt that now practically
all danger was passed. He hurried
