    • DROPPED SCONES

      One cupful flour, one cupful buttermilk, two teaspoonfuls soft sugar, three-quarters teaspoonful soda, one-quarter teaspoonful tartaric acid. Mix in a basin the flour, sugar, soda, tartaric acid, add gradually the buttermilk, beating it well for a few minutes. Have ready a hot griddle, which rub over with a piece of suet or rind of bacon. Put the mixture out in spoonfuls, taking care they are neat round shapes. When the scones are covered with bubbles on the top, turn them over. When they are a light brown color on both sides they are ready; should not be turned twice.

  • Notes 
    • "On October 16th, 1889, our pastor, Dr. Dickson, called a meeting of the young people of the congregation to organize for some definite line of work. It was decided, after having the work explained, to organize a Y.P.S.C.E. The constitution was discussed and adopted in part. The active and associate pledges were read, after which sixteen signed as active members. The following officers were elected: Hon. President, Rev. J. A. R. Dickson, B.D.; President, Mr. A. J. Colvin; Vice-President, Mr. Alex. McDonald; Secretary, Mrs. Goodwin. The following committees were formed, of which the persons whose names are appended were the conveners: Prayer-meeting, Mr. A. W. Wright, B.A.; Lookout, Miss Isa Gardiner; Sunday School, Miss Maggie Dickson; Social, Miss Beckie Goldie; Flower, Mrs. James Risk. The members took up the work in an earnest manner, keeping before them the motto: For Christ and the Church. The strength of our Society was the result of prayer. A Sunday evening prayer-meeting had been held for some time, under the leadership of Mr. A. W. Wright, also a woman s prayer-meeting once a week, both of these asking for special blessing on the young people of the congregation. The work taken up at first was confined to our own church, working along the lines of the different committees. In March we decided to give a free will offering at our monthly consecration meeting. This we still continue to do. ...1a
