BII.LINGS COUNTY PIONEER " e @ What does coffee mean to you ? A delectable flavor and a welcome aroma that helps you "get going" on even the darkest morning ?... a leisurely after-dinner cup that is the perfect accompaniment to good conversation ?... the bracing beverage that gives real meaning to your mid-morning coffee break? In any case, coffee is America's most popular bever- age and has been ever since the Boston tea party. Think how often coffee is served in your own home, in the homes of your friends, at communiey affairs such as church suppers or school bazaars. "Now there's a good cup of coffee !" are treasured words and can be earned with regularity if a few simple rules are consistently followed in brewing your coffee. Always start with a sparkling clean coffee-maker. Wash it thoroughly after each use and rinse with hot water, then rinse with hot water before using. Buy coffee in the size of can which will be used within a week so that the coffee on hand will always be fresh. Then start with freshly drawn cold water and for best results, use the full capacity of your coffee-maker. Never brew tess than 3A of the capacity. Con- sisten timing too, is important. /fter you find the exact timing to obtain the results desired with your coffee-maker, stick to it in order to get uniform results. Use the proper amount of coffee. Best results in brewing coffee are obtained by us- ing one rounded tablespoon to each  measuring cup of water. A smal- ler measure of coffee, brewed for a longer time results in a bitter flavor. For good coffee each time, re- member too, that it should never be boitec as an undesirable flavor change then takes place. Serve as soon after brewing as possible as it is then at its best. In buying coffee, you'll see that it is usually offered in a choice of three grinds--regtflar, drip or fine. So know your type of coffee- maker and the grind best suited to it. Here is a schedule ot follow in selecting various grinds: use reg- ular grind for a percolator, drip grin d for a drip pot and fine or drip grind for vacuum-style coffee maker. Instant coffee too, is important as a beverage. It is all coffee but is a crystalline product that dis- solves instantly in hot or cold water. It is also available as decaffeinated coffee from which the mild stimu- lant known as caffeine has been re- moved before roasting. In making instant coffee, the precaution to follow is to always add the water to the coffee. Then let steep over low heat for a few minutes before low serving as the flavor tends to mellow as the coffee steeps. The wonderful flavor of coffee makes it popular as an ingredient in baked or cooked dishes, too. Instant coffee is easily used to give a sttbtle flavor of coffee in meringues, hipped creams and fillings. Simply add the powered instant coffee with the other dry ingredients and if your recipe calls for brewed coffee, substitute one tblespoon of instant coffee and one cup of fresh water for each cup of brewed coffee called for. If you are concocting delicacies of your own, be sure the flavors you use blend well. Good combinations with coffee are chocolate, cream, spice, orange, lemon, mint, nut, dte and coconut. A coffee sauce for serving on plain cake, bland puddings or ice creams can easily be made. Here's a recipe for a smoothie that will surely win applause for the cook. Coffee Ssmee 1 tablespoon instant coffee tablespoon flour dash of salt cup light corn syrup 1/3 cup light cream 1 tablespoon trotter Mix dr2r ingredients in a sauce- pan; ad dsyrup gradually and blend well. Add cream and butter. Sim- mer 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constanly. Serve warm or cold. Makes sA cup. If you savor a touch of coffee in your dessert you might like to try the following: Coffee Macarogn Pie 4 teaspoon salt 3 eggs, separated 1 cups sugar Y4 cup cold coffee 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 teaspoon lemon juice teaspoon almond extract 1 cups shredded coconut, cut up 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell Add salt to egg yolks and beat until thick and lemon-colored. Add sugar, cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Add coffee, but- ter, lemon juice and alraond extract. Blend well. Fold in coconut and stiffly beaten egg whites. Turn into pie shell. Bake in moderate oven, 375F., 50 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean. Cool before serving. If you are of a creative mind and wish to devise your own recipes, it car} be easily done. Almost all packaged mixes take on distinction with coffee. To perk them up, com- bine equal parts of strong, freshly brewed coffee and evaporated milk and use this mixture as the liquid. For cakes, breads, waffles---in other words, for baked products -- add one-eighth teaspoon of baking soda to coffee-milk mixture before add- ing to packaged ingredients. Soda isn't required for pudding, ice cream or frosting mixes. Whatever your preference for cof- fee, one thing is certain: coffee means pleasure and coffe means fun.

Opening of the new district office at Bismarck is part of a company- J wide organizational improvement Jto provide more efficiency and j closer relations with Standard Oil I CO. customers, Kniefet said.'

"The creation of the district offices gives us a much better op- portunity to serve our customers on a more personal basis with greater efficiency," Kniefel said. "At the same time, th e centraliza- tion of our administrative functions in the regional office will stream- line our operations and provide faster polidy decisions."

Two new district offices will replace the Cut Home Fire Hazards, B,ui' Plan for The Worst! hat would you do if fire struck your home ? How would you get out of the house? How would you get your children out--if fire blocked the usual exits? "It's important to have such plans made ahead of time," warns Claude Stubbe, chief safety engineer for Mutual Service Casualty Insurance Company, "for it's too late to plan after a fire tarts." Because each house is different, says Stubbe, you have to make your own escape plans--but he give these sug- gestions to keep in mind when planning: @ Generally fires start on the lower levels o a house, and the poisonous smoke and gas travel upward, for they are lighter than air. People sleeping upstairs are more affected by these gases. Each year many people who die in home fires are not burned at all, but die of suffocation. Plan escape routes from a home, particularly from the upper floor. (For example, check upstairs windows that lead to roof.) Never come down a flame- or smoke- filled stairway. This is one of the surest ways to be burned to death or asphyxiated. J Each day fire strikes 800 homes. Some of the more com- mon causes of these fires--and how to avoid them--are shown in the pictures here. This week of October 6-12--Fire Prevention Week--is a good time to make your plans for a home fire emergency, for the safety of your family and yourself. ESCAPE RGUTES .from home should be planned foe fire emergency. Check access to roof of house or garage from upper story wlndotcs, for escape by stairway is often most dangerous. FIREPLACE SCREEN is good nre insurance. Wood throws off sparks which can easily set clothes or carpet on fire. KEEP MATCHES out of reach, so little children cannot get them. And train children to respect matches and leave them alone. REMOVE PAPERS and rubbish from closets, base- ments, attics. Trash piles can start fire or help it spread much more rapidly. INFLAMMABLE LIQUIDS., should be stored whore children cannot get them. Many you_nesters burn to death because of pronts carelessness. ELECTRIC IRON .... n start fire if left on ironing board.
