To Boil Fish. — The fish should be thoroughly cleaned, put in 
boiling, salted water, and kept boiling until done ; if it stops be- 
fore it is done the skin will break. In the absence of a fish kettle, 
it is best to boil the fish in a net ; a new piece of mosquito netting, 
well washed, will do ; it will greatly assist in its removal from the 
kettle and can be drained while in the net. If it be a kind of fish 
without decided flavor, it will be improved by adding to the water 
a small piece of onion, a bit of spice, or a dash of lemon juice. 
Serve with it drawn butter, with 1 or 2 hard-boiled eggs chopped 
fine and added the last thing. 

Boiled Fish. — Any fresh fish weighing between 4 to 6 pounds 
should be first washed in cold water, then put into boiling water, 
enough to cover it, and containing 1 tablespoonful of salt, simmer 
gently thirty minutes, then take up. A fish kettle is a great con- 
venience, and when you do not have one, keep a strong white cot- 
ton cloth in which pin the fish before putting into the boiling 
water; this will hold in shape. Hard boiling will break the fish, 
and of course there will be a great waste, and the fish will not look 
appetizing. There should be a gentle bubbling of the water, and 
nothing more all the time the fish is in it. A fish weighing 
more than 6 pounds should cook ten minutes longer for every ad- 
ditional 2 pounds. Boiled fish can be served with a great variet}'^ 
of sauces, which change the whole character of the fish. 

— [Miss Barry. 

Sauce for Boiled Fish. — 1 pint of milk, 2 tablespoonfuls of

flour, 2 of butter, salt and pepper to taste, 2 hard boiled eggs ; 
mix the butter and flour together until smooth. When the milk 
boils stir 2 tablespoonfuls of it into the butter and flour, when well 
mixed stir into boiling milk slowly, then cook eight minutes, 
strain, then add the hard boiled eggs, which must be chopped very 
fine. Serve always with boiled fish. 2 tablespoonfuls of chopped 
parsley is a pleasant change from the hard boiled eggs. 

— [Miss Barry. 

Bkoiled Fresh Mackerel. — Remove head and dark skin from 
inside, wash, and wipe dry. Butter bars of broiler and broil fish 
over bright fire, taking care not to burn. When done through, 
dip gridiron with fish on quickly into boiling water, remove fish to 
hot platter, and serve with a dressing made of 4 tablespoonfuls of 
melted butter, 2 tablespoonfuls lemon juice, a bit of chopped pars- 
ley, and a little pepper. Serve very hot, with either nice mealy 
baked or mashed potatoes. — [Mrs. F. I. Storer. 

Baked Fish. — Clean the fish thoroughly, wipe dry, salt inside. 
Stuff with any kind of dressing preferred and confine l)y passing 
coarse thread around it to hold it firmly. When ready lay it upon 
a buttered paper iu baking pan, sprinkle with pepper and salt, 
then lay slices of sweet salt pork on top to season it. A good, 
steady heat should be kept up aud the fish basted often until near- 
ly done, then stop to allow the outside to become crisp and a deli- 
cate brown. If basted often the fish will be moist and delicious 
and done clear through. 

Baked Fish. — Clean and wipe fish, rub with salt, stufl' and sew 
up. Cut gashes in sides of fish and put narrow strips of pork in 
each gash. Rub with butter, salt, and pepper. Dredge with flour. 
Bake in a hot oven one hour. StuflUng for fish : 1 cup cracker 
crumbs, 1-4 cup melted butter, 1 saltspoonful salt, 1 teaspoonful

small crackers, 1-4 of a pound of salt pork, 2 tablespoonfuls of 
salt, 1-4 of a teaspoonful pepper, 1-2 of a tablespoonf ul of chopped 
parsley, 2 tablespoonfuls of fiour. Roll the crackers very fine, 
and add to them the parsley, 1 tablespoonf ul of chopped pork, 1-2 
tlie pepper, 1-2 a tablespoouful of salt, and cold milk to moisten 
well. Put this into the body of the fish, and fasten with skewers. 
Cut gashes across fish about 1-2 inch deep, and 2 inches long, cut 
rest of pork in strips, and put these in the gashes. Put the fish 
into baking pan and dredge well with salt, pepper and fiour, cover 
bottom of pan with water and put into a rather hot oven ; bake 
one hour, basting often with gravy in pan, dredging each time with 
fiour, salt and pepper. The water in the pan must be often re- 
newed, as the bottom is only covered each time. Baste fish every 
fifteen minutes. When fish is cooked, lift carefully from })an, 
placing in centre of dish on which it is to be served. Make a 
brown grav}', garnish fish with slices of lemon and sprigs of pars- 
ley. — [Miss Barry. 

Baked Halihut Steaks. — Trim the steaks, lay them in a roast- 
ing pan, and for 2 pounds use 1 cup cream, (or milk if neces- 
sary) 1 teaspoonful of flour, 1 tablespoouful of butter, 1 tea- 
spoonful of salt, and 1 saltspoonful of pepper. Dredge the steaks 
with the flour, add the seasoning and dot with the butter. Pour 
over the cream and bake fifteen miuutes in quick oven. — [P. C. P.

cording to size of fish. Just before taken from oven pour over 
the fish 1-2 cup of milk.— [Mrs. W. J. Wyer. 

Mackerel Baked in Milk. — Put a split mackerel in pan, sea- 
son with pepper and salt, and nearly cover with milk. Bake three- 
quarters of an hour in a quick oven, or until done. After remov- 
ing the fish, add a little water to the milk, and thicken for gravy. 
If a richer gravy is desired, add a scant half-teaspoonful of Wor- 
cestershire sauce and 1 teaspoonful tomato ketchup. — [M. P. C. 

German Stuffed Fish. — 1 small bluefish, 1 sea trout and 1 
perch, cut into pieces of three or four inches each; take a small 
quantity of fish out of each end of the slice, put the pieces in a 
chopping dish, than add 2 of bread, 1 egg, pepper and salt to 
taste, 1 small onion, then chop very fine and fill the cavities you 
have made in the slices of fish. Put fish in a porcelain kettle, 
season with a little salt, slice half an onion over the fish, cover 
with water ; let it cook very slowly for one hour, and do not stir 
the fish, as it will break it ; shake the kettle to keep it from burn- 
ing on. — [Mrs. L. Arenovski. 

Finnan Haddie. — Cut the fish in several pieces, put into astew- 
pau, cover with half sweet milk and half cold water, set on stove 
where it will not burn, let simmer until tender, then flake the fish, 
removing skin and bones, dress with dots of butter, pepper, and 
a very little of the milk in which it was boiled, set in oven 
long enough to melt the butter, and serve. 

A Delicious SurrER Dish. — Have half a dozen white perch nicely 
cleaned, but left whole; any small sized firm fish will do. Slice 
a medium size carrot, a small onion, and cover with water, boil 
until tender, add the fish, with salt, and a teaspoonful of sugar; 
simmer until well done, but not broken ; carefully remove the fisii 
onto a deep platter, then with the beaten yolks of 4 eggs, thicken

"In selecting beef choose that of a fine, smooth grain, of a bright 
red color and white fat. The sixth, seventh and eighth ribs are the 
choicest cuts for a roast. Have the bones removed and the meat 
rolled, but have the butcher send the bones for soup. The flesh 
of good veal is firm and dry, and the joints stiff. The flesh of 
good mutton or lamb is bright red, with the fat firm and white. 
If the meat of pork is j^oung, the lean will break on being pinched ; 
the fat will be white, soft and pulp^'." 

Roast Turkey. — Singe (if needful) and remove pin-feathers. 
Wash thoroughly inside and out, and rinse with cold water. Turn 
the skin back from the neck and cut neck off quite short, replace 
the skin and tie with soft white twine or cotton yarn. Fill the 
breast and body with dressing and sew up with the yarn. Fasten 
the wings behind the back with a long skewer, or tie with yarn. 
Also tie the legs together at the joints where the feet were cut off. 
Sprinkle with salt and rub butter all over the turkey, then dredge 
thickly with flour. Cover the bottom of pan with flour, place tur- 
key in and set in the oven until the flour is browned, then pour in 
water enough to rather more than cover the bottom of pan. Baste 
about every twenty minutes, adding hot water and dredging with 
salt, pepper and flour at each basting. Slices of raw salt pork 
may be laid on turkey instead of rubbing with butter, if preferred. 
If cooked in a patent baker of course the basting is unnecessary. 
For the dressing, boil (all together) and chpp, the liver, heart, 
gizzard, 3 medium sized potatoes and 1 onion. Add 6 rolled 
crackers, butter size of an egg, 1-2 to 3-4 pound of raw salt pork, 
chopped very flue, powdered sage, savory, salt and pepper to 
taste. — Mrs. N. A. Bradford.

small bits of pork with it. Put in water to nearly cover it. Cook 
until about done, allowing twenty minutes for dumplings. Thicken 
gravy a little if needed. Serve vegetables cooked separate. 

—[Mrs. C. C. Crocker. 

Fricasseed Chicken. — Take a chicken of about 4 pounds, fry 
out 2 slices of pork, cover with water and stew the chicken until 
tender. Gravy: Take 2 eggs and a medium sized piece of but- 
tei-. Toast bread and lay the chicken on it and pour the gravy 
over it. — [Mrs. George H. Smith. 

Broiled Chicken. — Take a chicken, split it down the back, and 
place it in a kettle of boiling hot water, cook it until tender, then 
place it in a roasting pan, dredge it with salt and flour, and cook 
until a nice brown. Baste it every few minutes with melted butter 
from the pan. — [Mrs. Sara T. Hammond. 

Cottage Cheese. — Boil 2 chickens until tender, take out all the 
bones and chop the meat fine, season it to taste with salt, pepper 
and butter, pour into it enough of the liquor to make it moist, put 
into any mould you wish, and when cold cut in slices. 

— [Mrs. M. L. Bcarse. 

Potted Pigeon. — Clean, then stuff the pigeons with a dressing 
made as for turkey. Sew them up and truss. Put them in a ket- 
tle with water enough to cover them, and boil one-half hour, then 
take up and drain them, roll in flour, and fry brown in pork fat. 
Thicken the liquor in which they were boiled with flour, pepper, 
salt, cloves, mace, and catsup. Put the pigeons in this gravy and 
simmer two hours. Serve in the gravy. Add 1-2 glass of claret 
if you choose. — [M. P. C. 

A Delicious Stlfking. — 2 dozen oysters chopped very fine, 
mixed with 2 cups of bread ciumbs or cracker crumbs, an ounce 
of melted butter, a tablespoonful chopped parsley, a little grated 


lemon peel, salt and black pepper, and a little cayenne, a table- 
spoonful chopped celery, moisten witli a little oyster liquor, a lit- 
tle cream and the well beaten yolk of one egg. 

— [Mrs. E. H. Davis. 

Roast Beef. — Always wipe with a wet cloth. Dredge on all 
sides with flour, salt, and pepper, and have a little flour in the pan. 
"When the flour in the pan is brown, add a pint of hot water and 
baste very often, dredging with salt and flour after each basting. 
Roast a piece of beef weighing 8 pounds 50 minutes, if to be rare, 
but if to be medium, roast one hour and a quarter, and ten min- 
utes for each additional pound. The heat for roasting must be 
very great at Hrst, to keep in the juices. After the meat is crusted 
over it is not so necessary to keep up so great a heat, but for rare 
meat the heat nuist of course be greater than for meat that is to 
be well done. Putting salt on fresh meat draws out the juices, 
but by using flour a paste is formed which keeps in all the juices 
and also enriches and browns the meat. — [Mrs. C. C. Howe. 

Braised Beef. — Take 6 or 8 pounds of the round of beef. Put 
6 slices of fat pork in the bottom of the braising pan, and as soon 
as it begins to fry add 2 onions, a carrot and a turnip, all cut 
fine. Cook these until they begin to brown, then draw them to one 
side of the pan and put in the beef, which has been well dredged 
with flour, salt and pepper. Brown on all sides, then add 1 quart 
of boiling water. Cover and cook slowly four hours, basting every 
twenty minutes. Take up meat, and finish gravy as for any roast; 
strain, pour around the beef and serve. — [Mrs. C. C. Howe. 

Pot Roast of the Shoulder of Lamh. — Put the lamb in a 
large, deep spider with a tight-fltting cover ; salt and pepper it ; 
keep about a pint of water in the spider and let it cook slowly on 
top of stove until almost done, then let water all boil out and 
brown it on both sides, then take out the lamb and turn off all the 
fat. Put in about 1 pint of water in spider and let it boil up to 


get the browned juice off the bottom aud thicken with cornstarch. 
This makes a nice brown gravy. — [Mrs. J. S. Nicholson. 

Roast Hxm. — Wash the ham very clean and put on with cold 
water to cover and simmer gently for four hours, if ham weighs 12 
pounds. Remove the skin aud put ham in baking pan, cover with 
bread crumbs and 3 tablespoonfuls of sugar. Let it cook two 
hours in a moderate oven. Make a brown gravy as for all roast 
meats. — [Mrs. C. C. Howe. 

New Way to Cook Ham. — The ham is first thoroughly washed 
and dried, then coated with a paste composed of flour, spices, and 
water, placed in oven to bake for three' hours, basting ever}' twen- 
ty minutes. Remove from oven, remove skin, trim off burnt crust, 
skewer on slices of lemon, and dot whole with cloves, after which 
the ham is placed in a dry pan and allowed to bake for another 
hour. A fruit salad to serve with the ham is made of oranges, 
bananas, grapes, and preserved pineapple. The juices are drained 
off, blended, aud spiced. — [Mrs. J. J. C.

move the bones, skin, and fat, aud pound until 1-4 of an inch

fine cracker crumbs as you have meat, season highly with salt, 
pepper, lemon, cayenne, and onion, moisten with 1 egg and a lit- 
tle hot water, as for veal loaf. Spread the mixture on each slice 
nearly to the edge, roll up tightly, aud tie or fasten with skewers. 
Dredge with salt, pepper, and flour, fry slowly in hot butter until 
a golden brown, but not dark or burned. Then half cover with 
cream and simmer fifteen or twenty minutes. Remove the strings 
and serve on toast ; pour the cream over them, garnish with points 
of toast and lemon. — [Mrs. Sara T. Hammond. 

Pressed Beek. — Boil a [)iece of beef until tender, slip out the 


bones, cool, chop fine, season with salt, pepper, a little onion 
juice, a dash of cayenne ; moisten with some of the stock, put in-

Now gooJ digestion wait on appetite and health on both. 

— Shakespeare. 

"There is one thing upon which too great a stress cannot be 
laid : When the vegetable is cooked perfectly tender and ready 
to be removed from the fire, drain it thoroughly. Any amount of 
seasoning you may add will not give them the proper flavor if the 
water from the boiling is allowed to remain in them. Certain veg- 
etables, like peas, string beans, spinach, brussels sprouts, should 
always be boiled uncovered. Be generous with good butter; it is 
the one great addition to a delicately cooked vegetable." — [E. P. T. 

Scalloped Cheese Potatoes. — Put in dish layer of sliced po- 
tatoes, add dots of butter, little salt, layer of grated cheese, then 
layer of potatoes ; add milk to cover, and bake one hour. Serve

onion, 1 tablespoonful melted butter, 1 heaping tablespoonful of 
floui', 2-3 cup cracker crumbs, 1-3 cup melted butter. Boil maca- 
roni twenty minutes, heat tomato, and fry the onion in the butter,

two, three, or four pieces. Put them in boiling water, with a lit- 
tle salt in it. Full-grown carrots will re(piire three hours boiling; 
smaller ones two hours, and young ones an hour. Try them with 
a fork, and when thoroughly tender take them up and dry them in 
a cloth. Divide them in pieces and split them, or cut them in 
slices. Season with butter, pepper, and salt. They should ac- 
company boiled beef or mutton. — [Mrs. S. A. Hinckley. 


Boiled Pausnii'S. — If young, scrape before cooking. If old,

of white cabbage, cut the cabbage through the centre, cut out the 
tough stalk, put the cabbage into a large pan of salted cold water

finely cut celery, pour salad dressing over this, another layer of 
lobster, celery, and dressing, and so on, pouring dressing over last.

quantity of oil ; when too thick add a few drops of vinegar ; the 
last thing add lemon juice. The secret of success is in having 
everything cold. — [Mrs. E. F. Smith.

olive oil, and then just as gradually 3 teaspoonfuls of vinegar. If 
there is no celery in your salad, put half a teaspoonful of celery 
essence into the dressing. The mixture should be as thick as cold 
cream when ready for the salad. This is an excellent dressing.

gar, 2 teaspoonfuls salt ; mix together until smooth, then add just

and a large wineglass (not less than 4 ounces) of good sherry 
wine. Light the spirit lamp, and when it is heated all through and 
simmers (boils) all over the dish, it is done. The oyster will be 
just plumped and the juice found to be fit for the gods. During 
the heating up to the boiling point they should be stirred occasion- 
ally with a silver spoon. This dish, carefully prepared, is no trou- 
ble whatever and when done far surpasses any other form of prep- 
aration that is open to the luscious bivalve.

ted meat fillings may be made from the odds and ends of cold meat

palatable. Thin slices of cucumber that have been upon the ice an 
hour or more are an addition to this filling. Good saijdwiches can 
be made from all kinds of salads and their name is legion.

the remaining water into a stewpan, and then let them boil for five 
minutes. Pare the peaches and cut them in halves, then cook 
them gently in the boiling syrup for ten minutes. On taking the 
stewpan from the fire turn the soaked gelatine into it ; then set 
it in another basin containing cold water and stir occasionally un- 
til the mixture becomes cool. Before the jelly has had time to

Set in a cool place for three or four hours. At serving time dip 
the mould into warm water and turn the contents out on a flat 
dish. Serve with whipped cream or soft custard heaped upon the

of a tablespoonful of brandy of maraschino when the gelatine is 
put with the fruit. — [Mrs. Charlotte C. Bassett.

baking of it. Sift 1 cup flour and 1 teaspoonful cream of tartar 
several times through a fine sieve. Beat the whites of 9 eggs to a 
stiff froth and to them add 1 1-2 cups sifted granulated sugar; 
mix carefully into this, stirring constantly, the sifted flourandadd 
1 teaspoonful extract of vanilla. Pour this batter into an un- 
greased pan and bake in a slow oven for forty-five minutes. When 
baked, turn the pan upside down on something that will admit of 
the air passing under it, and allow it to stand until the cake falls 
from the tin. Ice with white icing. Be careful in making this 
cake to have all the ingredients as light as possible.

add 2 eggs, and mix well, 1-2 cup milk, 1 even teaspoonful Royal 
baking powder, sift with the flour ; I never measure flour, use 
your own judgment; vanilla or lemon. Have your oven the right 
heat, as there is as much in baking as making. Beat until your 
arm aches. Use hands for mixing sugar and butter.

Good Doughnuts. — While the doughnut question is being agi- 
tated, I'll send in ni}^ ideas concerning them, also my recipe. I 
have tried all kinds of recipes and am thoroughly convinced that 
too much shortening and fat that is not real hot are the principal 
causes for their soaking fat. I have found one that is just right : 
2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 2-3 cup new milk (which contains about the 
right amount of shortening), 2 even teaspoonfuls cream of tartar, 
1 even teaspoonful soda, flour enough to roll easily, salt and nut- 
meg. Have the fat real hot. — [Mrs. B. F. Crocker.

Sweets to the Sweet. 

Stuffed Dates. — Remove the stones of the dates and fill with 
the following : Beat the white of an egg with confectioner's sn- 
gar, have chopped fine the required amount of English walnuts or 
peanuts, mix the chopped nuts and egg and sugar together, and 
stuff the dates. — [ALrs. John C. Bearse. 

Stuffed Raisins. — Cut open choice raisins on one side and re- 
move the seeds ; fill with bits of blanched almonds, English wal- 
nuts, or candied cherries ; close each raisin thus filled and wrap in 
another seeded raisin. Roll in fine granulated sugar. 

Candied Almonds and English Walnuts. — Boil 1 cup granu- 
lated sugar, 1-8 teaspoonful cream of tartar, and 3-4 cup of water 
over a very hot fire ; do not stir after the boiling has begun ; re- 
move from fire as soon as there is a very faint yellow tinge to the 
syrup. Take the shelled nuts (almonds having been blanched) on 
the point of a large needle, dip them in syrup, then drop on oiled 

To Blanch Almonds. — Pour over boiling water and let them 
remain until the skins will remove easily. — [Mrs. Albert Bacon. 

FouDANT. — Place a porcelain basin over the fire in a pan of wa- 
ter ; dissolve in it 2 cupfuls granulated sugar, 1 cupful boiling wa- 
ter, 1 teaspoonful vinegar, a pinch of cream of tartar, and cook all 
together twelve minutes. Do not stir ; test by dropping a little in 
cold water ; when it congeals into a soft ball it is ready to pour 
onto a plate to cool. Do not scrape the pan. "When cool enough 
to handle stir one way only, and then put away for twenty-four 
hours; it is then ready to mould into candies'. If it should have a 
tendency to stick, work in raw sugar. It can be flavored as de- 
sired, when moulding. For a pretty variety, stone some dates, fill 
the cavities with the cream, cut the dates into small pieces and 


cover with cream. One maj' conceal in the foudant candied fruits, 
nut meats, figs, fresh fruits.

ing pan. Can be made in chafing dish. Cocoa may be used in- 
stead of chocolate; use 2 tablespoonfuls. — [E. C. Wheeler.

A principle which the Iyanoltjh Cook Book strongly advocates 
is the use of pure baking powders. ''The only pure baking pow- 
ders are made from cream of tartar in which are combined the most 
useful leavening agencies and healthful food qualities. In imita- 
tion powders alum is used, which is poisonous and seriously affects 
the health." To this matter our ladies should give attention — the 
difference in price between the cheap powders and the pure, best 
powders not being worthy of consideration. 

To Clean Silver. — To 1 gallon of soft water add piece of 
washing soda size of an egg. Place silver in clean agate kettle 
with soda water enough to cover and set over fire and let boil fif- 
teen minutes ; take from kettle and rinse immediately in hot soap 
suds and dry on clean towel. — [G. B. H. 

To DO UP Shirt Bosoms. — Take 2 ounces of fine white gum- 
arabic powder, put it in a pitcher and pour in a pint of water; 
having covered it, let it stand all night ; in the morning pour it 
carefully from the dregs into a bottle, cork it, and keep it for 
use. A tablespoonf ul of gum water poured in a pint of starch made 
in the usual manner will give to lawn, either white or printed, a 
look of newness. — [Mrs. M. L. Bearse.

Melted parafine poured over jellies and jams is the surest safe- 
guard against air. 

Beeswax and salt will make rusty flatirons as clean and smooth 
as glass. 

Table cloths should be frequently altered in the folding for iron- 
ing. This prevents their wearing at the crease. They may be 
folded double part of the time and then in triple folds. 

To Stone Raisins. — Put them in a dish and pour boiling water 
over them ; cover and let them remain in it ten minutes. It will 
soften them so that by rubbing each raisin between the thumb and 
finger, the seeds will come out clean. Then they are ready for cut- 
ting or chopping if required. 

Lay sardines on tissue paper to free them from oil. 

Salt will curdle new milk. Hence in preparing dishes from the 
latter, add salt after it is taken from the fire. 

Never keep a furiously hot fire ; a gentle and sustained heat is 
alwaj's best. 

If you are troubled with ants, ask your druggist for a strong so- 
lution of corrosive sublimate ; wipe your shelves with it and they 
will disapi)ear. This is unfailing.
