HOW TO COOK A HUSBAND
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.
HOW TO PRESERVE A HUSBAND
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

"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,

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.
RULES FOR PLACING DISHES.
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.
RULES FOR SERVING.
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
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,
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.
CHICKEN CREAM SOUP.
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
CREAMED TOMATO SOUP.
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.
DUMPLINGS FOR SOUP.
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.
NOODLES FOR SOUP.
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.

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

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.
CREAMED BEEF OR VEAL.
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

into dripping pan under meat and baste when basting meat, turning pan
that pudding may be golden brown throughout.
DRIED BEEF WITH CREAM.
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.
BREADED LAMB OR MUTTON CHOPS.
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.
SPARERIB POT PIE.
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.
VEAL OR BEEF OMELET.
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
POT-ROAST OF BEEF.
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.

a strong arm for beating the candy is most essential to its perfection.
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.
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
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-

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.

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
