"Of making many books there is no end," said a wise man; 
but probably he had good cooks. There is a "place" for all 
things as well as a "time," and every hungry man knows the 
place for a good dinner. If the shortest road to man's heart is 
by way of his stomach, then the projectors of this little volume 
think they have struck it rich. So, like all other authors, we have 
written to meet a "long felt want." There are cook-books and 
cook-books, but who ever saw a cook-book for " Cloud City"? 
It is a well-established fact that in a high altitude the science 
culinary has its local and peculiar laws. It is commonly held 
that a different proportion of ingredients is necessary, as well as 
a different Jength of time. It is even claimed by some that 
more fuel is required here than in a lower altitude. Be this as it 
may, it is well established that the husband, who has recently 
brought his wife from the East, is not in healthy employment 
when he reminds her of the superior ([uality of his mother's 
cooking. He must wait until she has learned the new conditions 
in her new world. Without a scientific explanation of why the 
boiling point is reached at lower temperature here than at lower 
altitude, or whether this one fact accounts for the necessity of 
different proportions of ingredients in cookery, the Ladies of 
the Congregational Church gracefully bow themselves before the 
public with a genuine blessing to every family. Poor cooking 
is responsible for much of the wretched health of women and 
children, and much of the drinking habit among men. If, by 
gathering together in this little volume the wisest experience, 
wrought out in the peculiar conditions of this lofty altitude, we 
are able to bring peace and happiness to the home, our ambition 
shall have been amply satisfied. 

Ladies Congre(;ational Church.

pounds "XXX" confectioners' sugar (finest grade of powdered 
sugar), well sifted ; beat well, and the paste is ready. Take 
half a pound of dates, remove stones, put in a piece of the candy 
paste and roll each one in granulated sugar. 

For Fig Candy, split half a pound of figs, place a layer of the 
dough on a board (first sprinkle well with powdered sugar to 
prevent its adhering), then a layer of figs, again a layer of 
dough, and cut in squares. 

Nuts of any kind may be made up into candy by using the 
meats for the foundation or inside of little balls of paste, and 
then roll in coarse sugar; set each kind out in a cool place to 
harden. 

For Chocolate Creams roll any number of balls size of small 
marbles from the dough, and when they are hardened, dip with a 
fork into some Baker's chocolate melted on the.stove. Be careful 
not to allow it to boil ; better to melt it in a little cup placed in 
a pan of hot water on the stove. Or make a caramel of three- 
fourths pint sugar, one-third pint milk, two tablespoons butter, 
and one square chocolate. Boil twenty minutes and add one 
teaspoon^^ vanilla. Remove from fire, place in a pan of hot 
water, and dip in the little balls. 

Cocoanut Candy may be made by rolling out another portion 
of the dough on the floured board, sprinkle with cocoanut, roll a 
few times with the roller, and cut into squares. 

A mixture of cocoanut and nuts chopped fine makes a 
delicious candy. 

For English Walnut Candy split the walnuts, shape some of 
the dough into round flat balls, place a half of the nut on each 
and press firmly. Use hickory-nut meats for Hickory-Nut 
Candy.
