Table Setting a. 


In selecting your husband you should not be guided by the silvery ap- 
pearance, as in buying mackerel, or by the golden tint, as if you wanted a 
salmon. Be sure and select him yourself, as tastes differ. Do not go to the 
market for him, as the best are always brought to your door. It is far better 
to have none unless you will particularly learn how to cook him. A preserv- 
ing kettle of the finest porcelain is best, but if you have nothing but an 
earthen pipkin, it will do, with care. See that the linen in which you wrap 
him is nicely washed and mended, with the required number of buttons and 
string nicely sewed on. 

Tie him in the kettle with a strong silk cord, called comfort, as the one 
called duty is apt to be weak. They are apt to fly out of the kettle and get 
burned and crusty on the edges, since, like crabs and lobsters, you have to 
cook them while alive. Make a clear, steady fire out of love, neatness, and 
cheerfulness. Set as near this as seems to agree with him. If he sputters 
and fizzles do not be anxious ; some husbands do this until they are quite 
done. Add a little sugar in the form of what confectioners call kisses, but 
no vinegar or pepper on any account. A little spice improves them, but it 
must be used with judgment. Don't stick any sharp instruments into him 
to see if he is becoming tender. Stir liim gently, \ratch the while lest he 
lie too flat and close to the kettle, and so become useless. You cannot fail 
to know when he is done. If thus treated you will find him very digestible, 
agreeing nicely with you and the children ; and he will keep as long as you 
want, unless you become careless and set him on too cold a place. — Selected. 


Be careful in your selection. Do not choose too young, and take only 
such as have been reared in a good moral atmosphere. When once decided 
upon and selected, let that remain forever settled, and give your entire 
thought to preparation for domestic use. Some people insist in keeping 
them in a pickle, while others are constantly getting them into hot water. 
This only makes them sour, hard, and sometimes bitter. Even poor varieties 
may be made sweet, tender, and good by garnishing them with patience, well 
sweetened with smiles and flavored with kisses to the taste. Then wrap 
well in the mantle of charity, keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devo- 
tion, and serve with peaches and cream. When thus prepared, will keep 
for years.

"The table is the touchstone of the gentleman; a man may hide 
his ignorance everywhere but at the table." 

It is proper to stand behind 3^our chair at the table until all guests are 
ready to be seated. 

The napkin should not be spread out to its full size, but placed double 
across the lap. 

Soup should be taken into the mouth noiselessly, from the side of the 
spoon, never from the point. 

Do not place knife or fork on the tablecloth, or with points resting on 
the edge of the plate during a meal, but keep them on the plate. 

When a plate is passed for a second helping, the knife and fork should 
be placed side by side at the right, on the plate. 

ISTever use a knife to convey food to the mouth. 

Use the fingers in helping yourself to bread, celery, radishes, olives, 
pickles, and cheese. 

When individual salt cups are not provided, and salt is passed, place 
a small quantity on the butter-plate, or on the place-plate. 

A slice of bread should ])e broken in two, and one half spread with 
butter, resting the bread on the plate, never on the cloth, nor on the hand; 
broken pieces of bread should be placed upon the plate, unless bread and 
butter plates are provided. 

At the end of the meal, the napkin should he placed upon the table un- 
folded, unless you expect to return for the next meal. 

Before drinking from a glass at table, the lips should be wiped with 
a napkin.

After stirring cream or sugar into coffee or tea, remove the spoon from 
the cup and place it upon the saucer. 

Toothpicks must not be used at the table; if unavoidable, it should be 
used behind the napkin. 


"There is a best way of doing even the smallest things. Mastery of 
these best ways constitutes civilization." 

Use absolutely clean linen. Have the cloth long enough and wide 
enough to hang well around the table. Under the linen cloth have a 
silence cloth of some soft and heavy material, to protect the table, to give 
the cloth a more brilliant whiteness, and to prevent noise when placing 
dishes on the table. Place the center of the cloth in the center of the 
table, having the folds straight with the edge of the table. Decorate by 
placing in the center of the table a vase of flowers, a small plant, or a 
dish of fruit. 


Arrange dishes symmetrically, although not necessarily in straight 
rows. When there are no warm dishes to be served, place a plate, right 
side up for each person, having them even with the edge of the table. If 
plates are decorated with a crest or monogram, place the plate with the 
decoration toward the middle of the table. 

Place knife on right side, sharp edge toward plate. 

Place fork at left side, with tines up. 

Place soup spoon at right of knife, bowl up. 

Place teaspoons in front of plate, handle to the right, bowls up. 

Place tumbler, top up, at right of point of knife. 

If additional glasses are required, group them around tumbler. 

Place butter plate at the left of knife. 

Place open salt cellar at point of fork. 

Place napkin at the left of fork, neatly folded. 

Place soup ladle in front of hostess, the handle to the right, bowl up. 

Place the carving set in front of host. 

Place several large spoons at each end of the table. 

Place dishes that are to be served at table directly in front of server. 

When finger bowls are used, put them on dessert plates, with a doily 
underneath the bowl, place at the left side of each person. 

Where the hostess pours the tea or coffee, arrange the service neatly in 
front of her. 

Arrange chairs at a sufficient distance from the table so they need not 
be d^a^vn out when people are to be seated. 



Cold food should be served on cold dishes, hot food on hot dishes. 
Wlien passing a dish, hold it so that the thumb will not rest upon the 
upper surface. 

In passing dishes from which a person is to help himself, pass always 
to the left side, so that the food may be taken with the right hand. 

In passing individual dishes, such as coffee, etc., set them down care- 
fully at the right side. 

When the dishes are being served by a person at the table, the waitress 
should stand at the left, hold the tray low, and near the table. 

Take on the tray one plate at a time, and place before the person for 
whom it is intended, setting it down from the right side. 

When one course is finished, take the tray in the left hand, stand at the 
left of the person, and remove with the right hand the soiled dishes, never 
piling them on top of each other. 

Soiled dishes should be first removed, then food, then clean dishes, 
then crumbs. 

Fill the glasses before every course. 

Never fill glass or cup more than three-fourths full. 

Before the dessert is served, remove crumbs from the cloth, either with 
a brush, crumb knife, or napkin. 

Do not let the table become disorderly during the meal. 

The hostess should serve soup, salad, dessert, coffee, and at a family 
dinner the vegetables and entrees. 

The host serves the fish and meat. 



" 'T is not enough to have the art 
Savory dishes to prepare; 
The cooks must know his master's heart 
His every wish and taste must share." 


Select a soup bone costing five or ten cents. Cut off the meat from the 
bone and stir it over the fire with a little hot butter until brown. Place 
all in a soup kettle, cover well with cold water and place over a slow fire 
where it will require about one hour to bring it to a boil. Simmer gently 
four hours, then add one small turnip, two carrots, one onion, a few celery 
tops, and leaves or root ; a few cabbage leaves, one bay leaf, one blade macp, 
six cloves, one quarter teaspoon pepper corns, one half a red pepper, one 
teaspoonful salt to each quart of stock. Simmer one hour longer and cool. 


To a rich beef or other soup, in which there is no seasoning otlier than 
salt or pepper, take a half a pound of small pipe macaroni^ boil it in clear 
water until it is tender, then drain it and cut it in pieces an inch long, 
boil it for fifteen minutes in tbe soup and serve. 


Boil an old fowl in four quarts of cold water, until there remains but 
two quarts. Take it out to cool. Cut off the breast, chop very fine. Mix 
with pounded yolks of two hard-boiled eggs. Cool, skim, and strain soup 
into a soup kettle. Season, add the chicken and Qgg mixture, simmer ten 
minutes, and pour into the tureen. Then add a small cup of boiling milk 
and serve. 


Always use fresh tomatoes when in season. Put one quart of stewed 
tomatoes through a fine colander or sieve to remove all hard lumps and 
seeds. Bring to the boiling point, add one and one-half pints cold milk. 
Be sure the milk is fresh or it is apt to curdle. Turn the milk into the 
tomatoes as quickly as possible, and stir rapidly; this will avoid curdling. 
Bring to the boiling point again, stir in one rounding tablespoonful of flour 


(Burst's Best) that has previously been rubbed smooth with a little milk, 
add one tablespoonful of butter, and serve. This is a delicious soup and 
can be made in a very few minutes. 


Having selected, washed, and pared some nice potatoes, cut them into 
small pieces, and boil them until they melt away. While they are cooking, 
brown two tablespoonfuls of flour (Burst's Best) in a skillet over a slow 
fire and stir constantly ; then stir into the potato broth, season with butter, 
salt, and pepper. 


Two quarts of oysters, one quart of milk, two tablespoonfuls of butter, 
one teacup of hot water ; pepper, salt. Strain all the liquor from the oysters, 
add the water and heat. When near the boiling point add the seasoning, 
then the oysters. Cook about five minutes from the time they begin to 
simmer until they "ruffle." Stir in the butter, cook one minute, and pour 
into the tureen. Stir in the boiling milk, and serve. 


One cup of flour (Burst's Best), one-quarter teaspoonful of salt, one tea- 
spoonful of baking-powder sifted together. Add one-third cup of lard and 
enough milk to make a stiff dough. Make into dumplings the size of 
marbles, drop into soup, cover, and boil ten minutes. 


To one beaten egg add as much flour (Burst's Best) as it will absorb, 
a little salt; roll thin as a wafer and let dry one and one-half hours; dusl 
lightly with flour (Burst's Best) ; roll in a large roll; slice thin from end; 
shake out loosely; put in boiling broth and boil ten minutes, stirring often. 


Cut pieces of stale bread into cubes and brown in the oven. Can be used 
the same as dumplings.

Fisli are good when the gills are red, eyes are full, and the body of the 
fish is firm and stiff. After washing them well, they should be allowed to 
remain for a short time in salt water sufficient to cover them ; before cook- 
ing, wipe them dry, dredge lightly with flour (Burst's Best) and season 
with salt and pepper. Salmon, trout, and other small fish are usually fried 
or broiled ; all large fish should be put in cloth, tied closely with twine, and 
placed in cold water, when they may be put over the fire to boil. Wlien fish 
are baked, prepare the fish the same as for boiling, and put in the oven on a 
wire gridiron over a dripping pan. 


Two pounds of halibut, one cupful of tomatoes, two tablespoonfuls of 
flour (Burst's Best), two tablespoonfuls butter, three-fourth teaspoonful 
salt, one-eighth teaspoonful pepper. Clean flsh, season with salt and pep- 
per, dredge with flour, place in buttered baking pan, pour over tomatoes, 
and dot with butter. Bake in a moderate oven, basting often. 


Eemove skin and bones from a pound can of salmon, mince and add an 
equal quantity potato that has been mashed and mixed with butter and 
cream; work the mixture into little patties and fry in a little butter. 


One can salmon, two eggs, eight or ten crackers. Season some, beat 
eggs, add to salmon and put in crackers, form into a loaf, spread butter 
on top, put a little water into a pan and bake until done. 


Cook one cup of rice, beat well together two eggs, then add the rice and 
stir well. Mix one can of salmon well; season; then add to the rice and 
eggs, make into little croquettes, then fry in butter. 


Inside Dressing. Eoll crackers, one-third sour school pickle, one-half an 
onion. Juice of half a lemon, butter size of a walnut, salt, and pepper. 
Bake one hour. 


Outside Dressing. Brown one tablespoonful of butter and two table- 
spoonfuls of flour, one cup of milk, yolk of one egg. Add a little more 
milk, add onion, rest of lemon juice, salt, pepper. Beat white of egg 
stiff and fold in rest of dressing. 


Clean and split a three-pound shad or white fish, put skin side down 
on an oak plank one inch thick, and a little longer and wider than the fish, 
sprinkle with salt and pepper, and brush over with melted butter. Bake 
twenty-five minutes in hot oven. Remove from oven, spread with butter, 
and garnish with parsley and lemon. The fish should be sent to the table 
on the plank. 


One pint of oysters, four tablespoonfuls of oyster liquor, two table- 
spoonfuls of milk or cream, one-half cup of stale bread crumbs, one cup 
of cracker crumbs, one-half cup melted butter, salt and pepper. Mix 
bread and cracker crumbs, and stir in butter. Put a thin layer in the bot- 
tom of the buttered shallow baking dish, cover with oysters and sprinkle 
with salt and pepper; add one-half each oyster liquor and cream. Eepeat, 
and cover top with remaining crumbs. Bake thirty minutes in hot oven. 
Never allow more than two layers of oysters for scalloped oysters; if three 
layers are used, the middle layer will be under done, while others are 
properly cooked. 


Clean, and dry between towels, selected oysters. Season with salt and 
pepper, dip into flour (Dursfs Best), egg, and cracker or stale bread 
crumbs, and fry in deep fat. Drain on brown paper, garnish and serve. 


Make some rich puff paste and bake it in very small tin pans; when 
cool, turn them out upon a large dish ; stew some large fresh oysters with 
a few cloves; then add the yolk of one egg, boiled hard and grated; add 
a little butter, and enough oyster liquid to cover them. After stewing a 
little take them out of the pan to cool. When cold lay two or three oysters 
in each shell of puff paste. 



I love it, I love it, 
And who shall dare 

To chide me for having my 
Meat cooked rare. 


Take cold roast beef or veal cut into small squares. Put one pint of 
milk on to boil. Mix two tablespoonfuls of flour (Burst's Best) with two 
of butter; add salt and pepper and stir into the boiling milk. Let boil for 
a few minutes then pour over the squares of beef or veal. Place some 
squares of buttered toast on a hot platter; pour the creamed beef over this 
and serve. 


One pint horse radish sauce. Juice of one lemon, one teaspoonf ul sugar^ 
one teaspoonf ul salt, one-half cup vinegar. 


Two cups milk, two cups flour (Burst's Best), one-half teaspoonful 
salt, four eggs. Beat eggs; add flour and salt, gradually; continue beat- 
ing. Add milk and continue beating flve minutes. The mixture should 
be perfectly smooth. One-half hour before meat is done, pour this mixture 
into dripping pan under meat and baste when basting meat, turning pan 
that pudding may be golden brown throughout. 


One-fourth pound smoked dried beef, thinly sliced, one cup scalding 
cream, one and one-half tablespoonful flour (Burst's Best). Eemove 


skin and separate meat in pieces, cover with hot water, let stand tea 
minutes and drain. Dilute flour with enough cold water to peur easily, 
making a smooth paste; add to cream, then cook in boiler ten minutes. 
Add beef, and reheat. 


Prepare loin or French chops as for broiling. Dip in crumbs, egg and 
crumbs, and fry in deep fat. Drain on brown paper and serve. 


Cut spareribs once across and then in strips three or four inches wide; 
put in kettle with hot water to cover, stew until tender, season with salt 
and pepper, and turn out of kettle; replace a layer of spareribs in bottom, 
add a layer of few potatoes (quartered if large), some bits of butter, small 
squares of baking-powder dough, roll quite thin; season again, put in an- 
other layer of spareribs, and so on until kettle is two-thirds full, leaving 
the squares of crust for last layer; then add the liquor in which spareribs 
were boiled, and hot water if needed. Cover and boil half to three-quarters 
of an hour, being careful not to boil dry, adding hot water if necessary. 
The crust can be made of light biscuit dough, without egg or sugar, as 
follows : Eoll thin, cut out, let rise, and use for the pie, having plenty 
of water in the kettle, so that when the pie is made and the cover on, it 
need not be removed until dished. If after taking up, there is not suffi- 
cient gravy, add hot water and flour (Durst's Best), and butter rubbed 
together; season to taste, and serve. To warm over pot pie, set it in a 
dripping pan in the oven, add lumps of butter with graw\' or hot water, 
and more squares of dough may be laid on top. 


Dress, clean, and cut up two chickens. Put in a stewpan with one- 
half onion, sprig of parsley, and bit of bay leaf; cover with boiling 
water, and cook slowly until tender. When chicken is half cooked, add 
one-half tablespoonful salt, and one-eighth teaspoonful pepper. Kemove 
chicken, strain stock, skim off fat, and then cook until reduced to four 
cups. Thicken stock with one-third cup flour (Durst's Best), diluted, 
and with enough cold water to pour easily. Place a small cup in center 


of baking dish, removing some of the larger bones; pour over gravy and 
cool. Cover with pie crust in which several incisions have been made, that 
there may be an outlet escape of steam and gases. Wet edge of crust 
and put around a rim, having rim come close to edge. Bake in a moderate 
oven until crust is well risen, and brown. Eoll remnants of pastry and 
cut in diamond shape pieces, bake, and serve with pie when reheated. If 
puff paste is used, it is best to bake top separately. 


Boil chicken until it will slip easily from the bones, let the water be 
reduced to about one pint in boiling ; pick the meat from the bones in good- 
sized pieces, taking out all gristle, fat, and bones; place in a wet mold, 
skim the fat from the liquor, add a little butter, pepper and salt tO' the 
taste, and one-half ounce of gelatine. When this dissolves, pour it hot over 
the chicken. The liquor must be seasoned highly, for the chicken absorbs. 


Wash and dry the duck carefully, make a stuffing, season with sage 
and onion ; insert and sew up that the stuffing may not escape. If tender, 
ducks do not require more than one hour to roast. Keep them well basted, 
and send to table with a good brown gravy poured over them. Accom- 
pany with currant jelly, and if in season, green peas. 


After drawing and washing off turkey, stuff it with bread, oysters, or 
any other stuffing desired, then sew it up, truss and rub with butter and 
sprinkle with salt, pepper and flour (Burst's Best). Put in hot oven to 
roast ; reduce the heat when browned all over, and put two cupb of water 
into the dripping pan. Baste frequently and each time dredge with flour, 
roasting twenty minutes to the pound, and twenty minntes extra. 


Eemove the crust from a small loaf of baker's bread, crumb very fine ; 
pour on hot water enough to moisten it; and cover it tight. Chop one 
large onion and one quart of oysters, take one-half cup of melted butter, 
one teaspoonful of powdered sage, and salt to taste ; mix all together, and 
if the oyster liquor does not make it moist enough, add a little hot water. 



Only the hind leos of frogs are used, and these are considered a great 
delicacy. Tliey must be skinned and blanched before cooking, as follows: 
Drop them in siiltcd boiling water to which some add a little lemon juice, 
boil three or four minutes, put in cold water a few minutes, then take out 
and drain. Trim and clean. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, dip in 
crumbs, egg, and crnmlis again, then fry three minutes in deep fat, and 


Get round steak about three inches thick. Season and pound in as 
much flour (Burst's Best) as the meat will take up. Put in irymg pan 
and brown well on top of the stove, then put in the oven and bake about 
two hours. Baste. 


Chop finely one ]iound lean, raw beef; season highly with salt, pepper, 
and a few drops onion juice. Shape, cook, and serve as meat cakes. A 
few gratings of nutmeg and one egg slightly beaten may be added. 


Take round or the cheaper cuts of steak. Cover the bottom of the 
pan with a thin layer of steak, salt, cover with crumbs. Add alternate 
layers of steak and crumbs, salt each laj^er of meat. A little minced onion 
or powdered sage may be added in the way of seasoning, if desired. Place 
in a steam cooker and steam until tender. Will require from forty-five 
minutes to two hours according to amount and quality of meat. (Most 
wholesome and delicious.) 


This can be prepared from a round steak and is as nice for dinner as 
a more expensive roast; pound well, season with salt, pepper and bits of 
butter, then spread with a nice dressing made of one egg, bread crumbs, 
pepper, sage and a little cream or butter; roll up and tie closely with 
twine; put in kettle with quart boiling water, and a lump of butter, if 
desirable, and boil slowly one hour; take out and place into dripping pan, 


adding water in which it was hoiled, basting frequently until a nice brown, 
and making gravy of the drippings. It is delicious sliced cold. This is 
known also as MocJc Duck. 


Cut the liver in small, thin pieces, and for every pound take four 
tablespoonfuls butter, two slices of onion, two tablespoonfuls flour (Burst's 
Best), speck of cayenne, salt, pepper and teaspoonful of curn' powder. 
Heat butter in frying pan, cook the liver in it slowly five minutes, then 
add flour and other ingredients; cook two minutes, stirring all well, and 


One cup of cold ham cut fine, two beaten eggs, and enough mashed 
potatoes to thicken enough to make into small cakes or patties and fry 
in hot lard. 


Two and one-half pounds chopped veal or beef, one-half pound salt 
pork chopped, one cup rolled crackers, two eggs beaten, one-half cup 
cream, one and one-half tablespoonfuls salt, one teaspoonful pepppr. Mix 
well, form into one or two loaves and bake one and one-half hours. Bast- 
ing with hot water and butter. 


Wipe slices of veal from leg cut as thinly as possible, then remove 
bone, skin, and fat. Pound until one-fourth inch thick, and cut in pieces 
two and one-half inches long by one and one-half inches wide, each piece 
making a bird. Chop trimmings of meat, adding for every three birds a 
piece of salt pork fat cut one inch square and one-fourth inch thick; pork 
also to be chopped. Add to trimmings and pork one-half their measure 
of fine cracker crumbs, and season highly with salt, pepper, cayenne, poul- 
try seasoning, lemon juice and onion juice. Moisten with beaten egg 
and hot water, or stock. Spread each piece mth a thin layer of mixture 
and avoid having mixture come close to the edge. Eoll and fasten with 
skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, dredge with flour, and fry in 


hot butter until a golden brown. Put in stewpan, add cream to half cover 
meat, cook slowly twenty minutes, or until tender. Serve on small pieces 
of toast, pouring cream remaining in pan over birds and toast, and garnish 
with parsley. A thin white sauce in place of cream may be served around 


Put a rather thick piece of beef in a wide, flat bottomed kettle with 
some fat or slices of pork, or suet, and a sliced onion or two if liked, and 
fry brown, turning to brown on all sides; four hours before needed pour 
on just boiling water enough to cover; cover with a closely fitting lid, boil 
gently, and as the water boils away add only just enough from time to 
time to keep from burning, so that when meat is tender, the water may 
all be boiled away as the fat will allow the meat to brown without burn- 
ing; turn occasionally, brown evenly over a slow fire, and make a gravy 
by adding hot water if necessary to the drippings and thicken with browned 
flour (Burst's Best). Season the meat with salt an hour before it is done. 


Prepare for the oven by dredging lightly with flour (Burst's Best), 
and seasoning with salt and pepper; place in the oven, and baste fre- 
quently while roasting. Allow quarter of an hour for every pound of meat, 
if you like it rare ; longer if you like it well done.

Potatoes are not good for mashing until they are full grown; peel 
them and lay them in water for an hour or more before boiling for mash- 
mg. Put them in a stewpan with enough water to cover them, cover and 
boil until done. Pour off the water and place them in a heated earthen 
vessel. Use a vegetable press for masliing, as then there will be no lumps 
appear. Season with salt and butter and heated milk or cream. Beat 
well and serve. 


Into a moderate oven place the required number of medium-sized Irish 
potatoes. "\^Tien done take from the oven, remove one end of potato and 
scoop out the interior. Season with salt, pepper, butter, and cream, 
beat well and place inside of the peeling; return to the oven until the 
meal is ready to serve. 


Peel the potatoes with a potato peeler. Slice them on a slaw-cutter, 
so as to have them thin and all the same size. Have some bacon grease 
hot in a frying pan to receive the slices, season with salt and pepper. 
When one side is brown, turn with a cake turner; when other side is 
done, serve very hot. These are delicious with rump steak.

Place on fire with one-half enough water to cover, one teaspoouful salt, 
two tablespoonfuls of sugar, lard or butter the size of an egg, and let

This plant belongs to the beet family, but is prepared and cooked 
the same way as spinach; but is relished by some who do not care for 


An excellent way to serve spinach is to first look it over carefully, 
wash it in two or three waters. If the stocks are not perfectly tender, 
cut the leaves from the stock. Place over a slow fire and enough juice 
will be drawn out to cook until tender. Sprinkle the leaves with salt, 


then put on the stove. Serve with mayonnaise dressing, garnish with

They talk about a woman's sphere as 

though it had a limit; 
There's not a place in earth or heaven, 
There's not a task to mankind given, 
There's not a blessing or a woe. 
There's not a whispered yes or no, 
There's not a life or birth. 
That has a feather's weight of worth, 
Without a woman in it.

Divinity needs careful supervision in measurements and cooking, and 
a strong arm for beating the candy is most essential to its perfection. 
Part One: 

Take two cups granulated sugar, one cup syrup, 
one cup vrater, one tablespoonful vinegar, one tea- 
spoonful vanilla. Boil slowly without stirring until a 
little hardens in cold water, then set aside to cool. 
Part Two: 

Eequires the white of an egg beaten stitf, boil one 
cup granulated sugar and one-half cup water until it 
threads, beat this slowly into whites of eggs, just as 
for cooked icing. When part one has slightly cooked, 
quickly turn in the part two and beat rapidly for 
twenty minutes; put in two cups of English nuts or 
pecans, stir gently into the mixture without breaking 
the nuts. 


Three cups of brown sugar, one cup of sweet milk, 
three-fourths cup of nuts, three tablespoonfuls butter, 
pinch of salt, pinch of soda, one teaspoonful of vanilla. 
Boil this until a soft ball test. When almost cool, 
put in nuts and vanilla, and beat until it begins to 
harden, then pour out on buttered plate. Stir con- 
stantly while cooking. 


Two cups granulated sugar, two-thirds cup sweet 
milk, one tablespoonful butter, two tablespoonfuls 
cocoa, one teaspoonful vanilla. Put butter in granite 


pan, when melted, add sugar and milk. Heat to boil- 
ing, then add cocoa. Stir constantly until it is a soft 
ball test. Then remove from fire, add vanilla. Let 
stand until partly cool, then beat until creamy. WTien 
mixture begins to sugar around edge pour into but- 
tered pan. 

One and one-half cup of granulated sugar, one-half 
cup boiling water, and six drops oil of peppermint. 
Put sugar and water into granite saucepan, and stir 
until it is dissolved. Boil ten minutes; remove from 
fire, add peppermint, and beat until a right consist- 
ency. Drop from -tip of spoon on slightly buttered 


Take two cups granulated sugar, one-half cup of 
water. Set over the fire until the boiling begins, then 
remove the spoon. If any grains of sugar are thrown 
up the sides of the pan while boiling is in progress, 
remove with a brush, wet in cold water. Boil five 
minutes and then add one-fourth teaspoonful cream 
tartar. If you are using a Fahrenheit thermometer, 
it should now register 238 degrees, the soft ball stage. 
It may also be tested by means of a fork. Plunge the 
fork into the syrup; if the syrup hairs, that is, forms 
a hair like thread from the ends of the tines, it is suf- 
ficiently cooked. Worhing the fondant. When the 
sugar is done, turn out on a large platter, or a marble 
slab, moistened with water. Allow to stand without 
touching, until a dent can be made in the surface, 
then with a spatula or wooden spoon work back and 
forth until it is a creamy white paste. While still 
soft and warm, knead as bread, then press into a bowl, 
cover closely with wax paper and then a heavier paper. 
Allow to stand in a cool place for twenty-four hours. 

Using the Fondant. 
Use the fondant from the bowl as desired. Flavor 
to suit your own taste. It is possible to combine 
flavors, nuts, and fruits in any way to suit one's in- 
dividual taste. Often many new confections are main- 


Two and one-half cups sugar, three-fourths cup 
pure corn syrup, one-half cup butter, one-eighth 
teaspoonful cream tartar, two and one-half cups whole 
milk (not skimmed), two and one-half squares of 
chocolate, one teaspoonful vanilla extract. Put the 
sugar, pure corn syrup, butter, cream of tartar, and one 
cup of the milk over the fire. Stir constantly, and 
when the mass has boiled a few moments, gradually 
stir in the rest of the milk. Do not let the mixture 
stop boiling while the milk is being added. Stir ever)^ 
few moments and cook to 248 degrees Fahrenheit, or 
until, when tested in cold water, a hard ball may be 
formed; add the chocolate and vanilla, and beat them 
thoroughly through the candy, then turn into two but- 
tered pans. When nearly cold, cut into squares. 


Household Hints 

To Take Out Mildew, 

Wet the cloth and rub on soap and chalk, mix together and lay in the 
sun; or lay the cloth in buttermilk for a short time, take out and place in 
hot sun; or apply lemon juice and treat in the same way. 

To Remove Grease Spots from Silks, Woolens, Paper, Etc. 

Grate thick over the spots French (or common will do) chalk, cover 
with brown paper, set on it a hot flat iron, and let it remain until cool. 
Eepeat if necessary. The iron must not be so hot as to bum paper and 

To Wash Chamois Skin. 

Use a weak solution of soda and warm water; rub plenty of soft soap 
into the leather; let it lie in the water two or three hours; then rub it 
clean. Einse well in a weak solution of soda, warm water, and yellow 
soap (rinsing in water would only make it stiff and hard) ; wring in a dry 
towel; dry quickly, then pull about and brush it well. 

To Clean Ribbons. 

Dissolve white soap in boiling water; when cool enough to bear the 
hand, pass the ribbons through it, rubbing gently so as not to injure the 
texture; rinse through lukewarm water and pin on a board to dry. If the 
colors are bright yellow, maroon, crimson, or scarlet, add a few drops of 
oil of vitrol to the rinse water. If the color is bright scarlet, add a few 
drops of muriate of tin. 

Onion Odors. 

When cooking onions set a tin cup of vinegar on the stove, and let it 
boil, and you will smell no disagreeable odor. 

Dirty Coat Collars. 

Apply benzine, and, after an hour or more, when the grease has become 
softened, rub it or remove with soap suds. 


To Clean a Refrigerator. 

Use bi-carbonate of soda dry on a damp cloth. Rub the zinc well with 
it, and any musty smell will be destroyed. 

Furniture Polish. 

Take a small bottle, fill it two-thirds full with spirits of turpentine, 
then fill the bottle up with the best linseed oil. Shake well, apply with a 
very thin cloth, and wipe with the same. 

Paint or Varnish. 

Oil of turpentine or benzine will remove spots of paint, varnish, or 
pitch from white or colored cotton or woolen goods. After using it, they 
should be washed in soap suds. 


Placed in trunks or drawers will prevent mice from doing them injury. 
Placed with silverware will keep it from tarnishing. 

Icy Windows. 

Windows may be kept free from ice and polished by rubbing the glass 
with a sponge dipped in alcohol. 

Packing Away Furs. 

All furs should be well switched and beaten lightly, free from dust and 
loose hairs. Well wrapped in newspapers with bits of camphor laid about 
them and in them, and put away in a cool dark place. If a cedar closet or 
chest is to be had, place furs in that. In lieu of that, new cedar chips 
may be scattered about. Never delay packing furs away until late in the 
season, for moth will early commence depredations. 

Improving the Lawn. 

To rid the lawn of dandelions, put a drop of sulphuric acid into the 
heart of each dandelion plant, being careful not to touch the surrounding 
grass with the acid. One drop will suffice to destroy roots of small plants. 
Large plants may need a second application. 


Washing Fluid 

Washing Made East. 

Washing Fluid. — One box of concentrated lye, one ounce of salts of 
tartar, two ounces of aqua ammonia, one-half pound of borax, six quarts 
of water (soft preferred). 

How To Prepare The Above. Boil one gallon of water. Go out doors 
and turn lye into granite dishpan or a two-gallon crock. Wliile you are 
doing this wear a closely-woven damp towel around your mouth and nos- 
trils. Pour boiling water over lye, add the salts and borax, then the two 
quarts of cold water and ammonia, and bottle at once. It must be kept in 
a glass jar as it is so strong it will eat through the jug. If it is put in 
Mason Jars, do not fill jars full, as it will spoil tops. 

How To Use. Soak clothes in a tub nearly full of warm water into 
which has been dissolved one teacupful of the washing fluid and make a 
suds with melted soap. After they have soaked an hour or so in the morn- 
ing wring them out and place in boiler one-half full of soft water. After 
boiling twenty minutes take out and rinse through three waters.

Household Hints 

Pickles of vinegar will not keep in a jar that has ever had any kind of 
grease kept in it. 

Clam shells are mare convenient for scraping pots and kettles than a 
knife, requiring less time to remove the burnt surfaces. 

If grease is spilled on the kitchen jfloor or table, cold water poured on it 
at once will prevent the spot from soaking into the wood. 

If the ceiling becomes smoked from a lamp wash off the blackened sur- 
face with a little weak soda water. 

Lamp chimneys may be quickly cleaned by rubbing them with a clean 
soft cloth and polishing with a piece of newspaper. 

A scorch mark, if not too heavy, may be removed by moistening with 
water and laying in the sun. Repeat the moistening two or three times 
until the spot disappears. 

A whisk broom is just the thing to clean a horseradish grater. 

"Wood ashes put in a woolen bag and placed in the water will make 
hard w^ater soft. 

A special broom should be kept for kitchen and pavements. 

Drain pipes should be regularly cleaned at least once a week, with lime 
water, carbolic acid, or chloride of lime.
