► THE SECRET OF BAK- I
ING GOOD BISCUITS j
The ability of a housewife as a
* cook is very often Judged by the bis- I
cuits she makes, but they are really J
very simple to make. If the materials (
used are of the beat, the receipt fol- «
lowed carefully and meesarments are 1
made accurately, only a little exper-
ience is required-to produce excellent
f infi baking powder biscuits is, of
course, that a reliable brand of bak
ing powder is used correctly, that the
ingredients be mixed quickly, and not
| so much as to make a tough bioruit

Baking powder is used in place of

When the mixture is of liquid and a

enough to knead, it is called a dough.
Bread dough, biscuit dough and pie

TEXACO FILLING STATION
HAS RECORD DA^
The record as established by tV
Texaco Filling Station here recently
goes to show the amount of traffic in
and out of our city. According to •
Mr. Peel, one of the proprietors, the
station sent away 175 satisfied custo
mers during the day. Out of the 175 j
90 per cent were cash customers, the•
other ten were free customers se- j
caring air and water and minor ad
justments. There were no charge cus- .
tomers during the day according to j
We have not interviewed the Star. - j
danl station, but we guess its record I
to be equally as good as that of the
Texaco station. With the amount of
gas and oils being sold by these two
stations there is no doubt out of the
amount a great deal ii sold to travel- J
ers passing through, but the large; '
amount is sold to local patrons.

the straw hat season made its ap

The day was not altogether approp- i

the ran not quite hot enough. There i
