Family Apple Pie. — Make dough the same as for other pies, using about 1 pint of sweet milk for a good-sized pie. Have ready 3 quarts of thinly-sliced baking apples. Line a bread pan with the dough and fill half full of the apples. Sprinkle it with sugar enough to sweeten to suit the taste ; then put in a thin layer of the dough and finish filling to the top with the apples and sweeten, after which place on the cover and bake an hour. Serve warm with sweetened cream or fresh butter. — Sister Alary J. Huffman, Churchville, Va.

Banana Pie. — Bake a crust ; let it cool ; slice 2 bananas into the crust. Boil 1 cupful of milk, y 2 cup of sugar, yolks of 2 eggs, and 2 tablespoonfuls of flour until thick. Let it cool and then pour over the bananas. Beat the whites of egg-s and spread over the top. Put in a quick oven to brown, but do not let pie get hot through. — Sister F. J. Weimer, Greenville, Ohio.
