We're always crying wildly for the
"pies like mother made,"
And we lay our disappointments
A where they never should be
Oft we're boasting of the wond'rous
bread that "mother used to
And we growl about our modern
cooks, and call each ono a fake.
The secret of their failures In this
"poem" now Is woven
No victuals can bo quite as good as
those from old brick oven.
ONE, every last one of them.
The old brick ovens, I
mean. There were many
of them In Hawley, and
" Shanty Hill," now known
by the more classic name of Marble
Hill, can very appropriately be called
the home of the brick oven. The
writer used to hear them referred
to as " Dutch ovens." They were
thus called, probably, because In
those days those who came from
foreign lands to Wayne county were
from the countries of England, Ire
land, Germany and Holland, and, out
among the "Yankees" everybody who
didn't " talk United States" was
The Pennsylvania Coal Company s
gravity railroad ran right through
"Siianty 1111, ana as ono roue mio
town he could see the brick ovens,
one for each home, standing ad
jacent to each one-storied place of
residence. Firewood was plentiful
in those days, and the ovens were
heated by building great ilres in
them of slabs and worn out and dis
carded hemlock sills and beech "rib
bon" used in the construction of the
railroad before E-lron was used.
Few people recollect how the road
was built when the car wheels rolled
over "strap iron." Instead of ties
the cross pieces were called "caps."
In either end of these "caps" there
were deep notches to hold the 9 inch
hemlock sills in place. On top of
the hemlock sills beech strips about
1 by 3 Inches were laid. A flat iron
rail with holes drilled at regular in
tervals of space was laid on the
beech strips that were called "rib
bons." Holes were bored through
"ribbons" into the sill, and counter
sunk spikes were driven deep
through the holes into the sill, thus
holding the combination in shape.
On a frosty morning it was an in
teresting sight on baking days to aye
these ovens as the flames belched up
ward from their low chimneys, and
the coals glowed and snapped in the
oven itself. These fires were kept
going until the oven was thoroughly
lieated, then the fire and coals weie
all carefully removed, the top was
covered to hold the heat from escap
ing, and the loaves of bread, the
blackberry and huckleberry pies
were placed In the hot cavern. When
these were done, and removed, a
huge pan of beans that had previous
ly been boiled until tender, with
"hunks" of tender pork, (the alter
nate layer of fat and layer of lean
kind), were sunk deep in the beans'
so that only the surface, (which had
been slashed with a sharp knlfo so
that it resembled a checker board),
was in evidence, was placed in the
oven, and there it remained lor
hours until the oven had cooled.
Of courso along with the huckle
berry Dies there were cups of yellow
custard, and other little things that
only those old time cooks knew how
to compound. All of these good
things came from those old brick
ovens. It was all done with a sim
ple " twist of the wrist." There was
no tinkering with dampers and oth
er contrivances that are a part of
the modern stove or range. And It
was of such baked goods as these
that the people rave when they talk
of the good things that " mother
used to make."
But there Isn't a brick1 oven left
in Hawley. Shanty Hill has be
come Marble Hill. You can search
it from end to end, and all the in
formation you will be able to get will
be that " just about here," or " right
over yonder," is where the old
brick oven I've heard father and
mother talk about used to stand."
The fuel problem has driven out
the brick ovens and the open Are
places. The tendency nowadays Is
to get the most service out of the
smallest quantity of fuel. And, un
doubtedly, the modern stove one of
these days will follow in the wake
of the brick oven, and wo shall bake
our bread and boll our coffee by
electricity or by solar heat. As to
baked beans, all the kind people get
nowadays are the much vaunted,
but mlserablo apologies, the kinds
that are daubed up with tomatoes,
and come in cans, and are baked who
knows where or how? and try to
palm themselves off on us as the
genuine article.
Alas! and alack! Tho writer
would be delighted to see oven a
photograph of an old brick oven;
but even that, probably, Is not forth
coming. -
Now, all of this may sound very
strange to any of my readers who
have the dyspepsia. Here is hoping
there are none such. To tho hungry
man all that has been written will
be thoroughly understood, and' all
such will say " that's so!" when I
quote Lytton in conclusion:
"Wo may live without poetry, music
and art:
Wo may live without conscience, and
live without heart;
Wo may live without friends; we
may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live with
out cooks.
He may live without books, what
is knowledge but grieving?
He. may live without hope, what is
hope but deceiving?

He may live without love,

But where is the man that can live
without dining?"
Ai rested for Non-Support
And Released on Parole.
On Tuesday morning George Swet
mlzer was brought before Justice of
the Peace Catterall charged by his
Wife with non-support. It appears
that two years ago he was brought
before Justice Ammerman on the
same charge, and was released on j
parole under the promise that he
would provide for his wife and in
fant son.
When he was brought before Jus
tice Catterall on Tuesday the wife
of the unfortunate man was not dis
posed to press the charge, and, al
though according to the evidence
the Justice might have committed
him to the county jail, he gave
the man a timely lecture cbupled
with a warning that hereafter there
will bo no more arrests. He will be"
held under parole, and If he does not
provide for his family he will be
committed to jail forthwith.
Mr. Swetmizer is a man about 35
years of age. He is healthy and
strong, and there appear to be no
1 extenuating circumstances in his
case Ho nas nvcci in Hawley about
3 years. He has worked in the glass
factory as a handy ma... and recently
he worked about ono of our livery
stables. The man seems to be well
Intentioned, and probably will here
after do what is manly and right to
wards his worthy and forgiving wife
and his four-year-old son.

Erk Brothers nnd

ITH the corn growing rank

Wayne county, the ma
jority of farmers are think
ing about silos, ensilage
and ensilage cutters. And that line
of thought leads right up to where
the Erk Brothers hardware store
have their innings.
Erk Brothers are more than deal
ers in hardware, for they are practi
cal farmers. Consequently they
know the needs of farmers, and they
represent and sell the best machin
ery and farm appliances that are
manufactured. For Instance, take
Silage Cutters: They sell the famous
"Ohio" Cutters, and can give a good
and valid reason for every claim
made as to their superiority. Here
are some reasons why the "Ohl6"
Cutters are the very best:
