CANNING CLUB NOTES

Since eggs are one of the only two
perfect foods, they should be used to
a greater extent. In the egg we find
every element essential to growth and
life. For this reason eggs should be
one of the most important foods both
for the child and adult. Eggs con
tain enough protein to be used as a
meat substitute. They can be so pre
pared that they can be served at
every meal. Eggs should be cooked
at a low temperature to keep them
from becoming tough. If cooked at a
high temperature, they are tough and
Baked Egg Dishes.
Shirred Eggs ? Cover the bottom
and sides of a small baking dish with
fine bread or cracker crumbs. Break
each egg int<x a saucer and carefully
slip it into the dish. Cover with seas
oned buttered crumbs and bake in a
moderate oven and when the white
has become firm and the crumbs a
golden brown, remove from the oven
and serve hot.
Eggs in Nest ? Carefully separate
the white from the yolk of an egg.
Beat the white until stiff and pile
lightly on a nicely trimmed slice of
toast. With a spoon make a depres
sion in the top of the white and slip
the egg yolk into it. Place on a baking
dish in a moderate oven and when
the white has become a golden brown,
remove and serve. It may be seasoned

WEST RALEIGH CLUB NOTES.
West Raleigh, April 2. ? County
Agents J. W. Cameron and Mrs. Rosa
lind Redfearn of Anson county have
undertaken the task of securing at
least four hundred members of the
canning, corn, cotton, pig, potato,
poultry and peanut clubs, who will
make a profit of at least $20.00 each,
and use the money to purchase War
Savings Stamps by Christmas day
1918. The belief is that they will
easily succeed for Anson county has
always been a leader in club work I
among boys and girls.
Mr. E. D. Weaver, County Agent
of Buncombe county has written that
he has a membership of 800 already
and with no great effort. The Bun
combe boys and girls are record break- ,
ers and will prove themselves to be
food producers in 1918.
Other leading counties in each
membership, are Montgomery, Robe
son, Cherokee, Randolph, Ruther- !
ford, Wake and Rowan.
County Agent Dodson, who has just
begun work in Pitt county this year
has organized his club members at
three places and has a membership of
29 at one of these.
From report*, received from the
county agents and from observations
by the club agents who have been very
active in all sections of the state in
interests of a large club enrollment it
is apparent that the boys and girls
are anxious and willing to do what
thoy can toward producing a surplus
amount of food this year. They are re
sponding splendidly to the call made !
by Governor Bickett for cn army of
100,000 members. Everywhere the
teachers are cooperating and also the
press of the state toward this end.
It is with a sad heart that I try
to write of the dcat'f of Grandfather
William H. Lassiter, which came
quite suddenly Sunday morning,
March 24th, about 5:30 o'clock. He was
taken seriously ill with acute indiges
tion Saturday evening and did not
live many hours. He had been in
rather feeble health for sometime. j
He was seventy-two years, three
months and twenty-nine days old. He
had be n a faithful member of the
Primitive Baptist church al Clement
for m^re than forty-five years, and
was deacon of the church mos* of
of that time. He was a kind hearted
generous man, always ready to render
any service possible to his family,
neighbors and friends. He was always , '
present at church when he wis able J
to get there. His home was ever open
1. I am anxious that each township
board of Agriculture appoint a young
man to take charge of the boys and
girls club work in the township when
1 am not there. Give me his name soon,
2. The club members or those who
wish to become members can get pigs
or corn by writing to me or the town
ship club man. Each member will buy
his own pig this year. Enroll now.
3. I hope the teachers will get all
the pupils they can to join these clubs
before the schools are out. (We will
use these clubs to beat the Kaiser.) I
will send these members rules and
other information needed for the best
results as soon as they are enrolled.
They can go ahead and get what they
need and plant it in the meantime,
however. We want the boys and girls
and women all to attend the town
4. The townships that want town
ship fairs this year let me know as
soon as possible.
5. Cut these farm notes out of the
paper and file them so you can refer
to them for future information.
6. Do not be in too big a hurry to
plant your corn for the cold spring
rains will rot the grains and weaken
them before they get well started.
7. Lime and plant soy beans in the
well drained piece of ground you ex
pect to plant in alfalfa or burr clover
8. Ask your neighbor to get your
ten per cent of nitrate of soda at the
car for you to avoid a ten mile trip
for it. Give him your bank receipt and
it will be all right.

whites of the hard cooked eggs, chop
the whites fine and add to the white

after arranging on the platter, pour
the sauce over them. Put the yolks

through a strainer, sprinkle them over
the sauce, and serve.

Two Ways of Reading Anything.
John Wanamaker says there are
two ways of reading anything. If it
is a letter no one gets its real mean
ing by jumping through it froglike.
Superficial reading of books or news
papers amounts to nothing if it i?
merely to sustain a preconceived
opinion or to boost a prejudice.
