Pie crust

Ingredients 1-1/2 cups flour 3 tablespoons lard 1/2 teaspoon salt cold water 3 tablespoons butter

Method—­Wash butter and squeeze until water and salt has been removed.  Chill the lard then chop it into the flour, with two knives.  Add salt and moisten it to a dough with cold water. (Ice water is not essential but is desirable in summer.) Toss on a floured board and roll out.  Fold to make three layers and put the butter between the layers.  Turn half way round, pat, and roll out.  Cut off the sides of it and roll into shape for the plate.  Roll the center for the upper crust, cutting slits in it to let out steam.  Fold the upper crust under the edge of the lower crust.  Bake in a moderately hot oven 40-50 minutes.  Pastry may be used immediately or chilled before using.  It must not come in contact with the ice.

If there is one thing more than another that a woman should care about it is her health.  She may be cheated in her happiest hopes because she does not know that Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound can be safely taken by all women.

My back seemed the worst” “I was so weak that I could hardly do anything and my back seemed the worst.  I read so much about Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for women that I thought I would try it.  I feel that it did help me.  I am looking after my own home now and seem quite strong again.  I have recommended your Vegetable Compound to quite a few friends and you can use my name if you wish to do so.”  Mrs. H. Porter, Box 440, Meaford, Ontario.

Apple pie

Ingredients 4 or 5 sour apples 1/3 cup sugar 1/4 tablespoon grated nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon lemon juice few gratings lemon rind 1 tablespoon butter

Method—­Line pie-plate with pastry.  Pare, core, and cut apples into eighths.  Put row of slices around the plate 1/2 inch from the edge working towards the center until the plate is covered.  Then pile on the remainder.  Mix sugar, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice and grated rind and sprinkle over the apple.  Dot all with butter.  Wet the edges of the under crust, cover with the upper crust and press together.  Bake for 40-45 minutes in a moderate oven.

Do you feel broken-down, nervous and weak sometimes?  Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound is excellent to take at such a time.  It always helps and if taken regularly and persistently will relieve this condition.

As if I must scream” “I cannot speak too highly of what Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound has done for me.  I was a nervous wreck and I just had to force myself to do my work.  Even the sound of my own children playing made be feel as if I must scream if they did not get away from me.  I could not even speak right to my husband.  The doctor said that he could do nothing for me owing to my condition.  My husband’s grandmother advised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.  I started it right away and everyone noticed what a different woman I was in a short time.  I was able to do my work once more, and it was a pleasure, not a burden.”  Mrs. Emily Davis, 721 McGee St., Winnipeg, Manitoba.
