Farm and Home Problems in Johnston CANNING CLUB NOTES By Mamie Sue Jones County Home Demonstrator FARM NOTES. By. A. 411. Johnson County Farm Demonstrator. 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 indigestible. 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 to taste. Eggs With Sauce. Eggs Goldenrod ? Two cups milk. Two tablespoonful butter. One-fourth teaspoonful white pep per. One and a half tablespoonful flour. Four hard cooked eggs. One teaspoonful parsley. One-half teaspoonful salt. Six Slices toast. Melt the butter, add the dry ingre dients and stir until smooth. Add the heated milk slowly, stirring constant ly, and allow to come to the boiling 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. In Memoriam. 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 FARM NOTES. 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 ship meetings. 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 this fall. 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. point. Separate the yolks from the whites of the hard cooked eggs, chop the whites fine and add to the white sauce. Cut the slices of toast half and after arranging on the platter, pour the sauce over them. Put the yolks througr a potato ricer or press them through a strainer, sprinkle them over the sauce, and serve. to the preachers, brethren and friends to whom he always extended a hearty welcome. He volunteered in the war of 1861 65 and bravely served t' rough the conflict srrrendor'ng with G"n. Rob ert E. Lee at Appomattox. I believe Grandfather served his purpose cn earth as a christian and now, he is gone to his reward which is prepared for those of like chris tian character. May we be reconciled that his life on earth is good evidence that he is resting in the arms of Jesus. Grandfather leaves surviving him two daughters, Mrs. J. A. King and Mrs. J. W. Langdon, and one son, Sir William Lassiter, six sisters, Mrs. Bennett M;',ssengill, Mrs. William Durham, Mrs. L. R. Moore, Mrs. Hen ry Hall, Mrs. Willis Massengill and Mrs.. W. B. Hobbs, seventeen grand children and nine great grandchil dren. When the toils of life ore over And like you, we lay our armor by, May the Lord prepare us to meet you In a home beyond the sky. A GRANDSON? J. W. K. NEED FOR MORE AIRPLANES. The Allies Lost 361 Machines in Feb ruary, Including 268 on the West ern Front. London, April 2. ? How necessary and rapid building of airplanes is can be gathered from the official reports of losses on all battlefronts during February. Those totaled 361, of which 268 fell on the western front, 85 in Italy, 4 in Palestine, 3 in Macedonia and 1 in Mesrpotrmia. The Allies report that 273 German and Austrian machines were brought to earth by Entente airmen, while the German headquarters claim to have brought down 88 Allied machines on the various fronts.

All the talks showed that they were filled I with patriotism. The messages to the boys who were to go into the military service of the United States were messages of encouragement and hope that each would measure up to to his full duty when the trying hour came. The members of the colored branch of the Red Cross were on hand and gave every departing soldier a comfort kit. Dr. Wharton, of the Exemption Board, gave the soldiers a few words of instruction and encouragement. The colored brass band of the town was present and made music for the occasion.

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.
