place them in boiling pot with water enough to cover them 
and 1 tablespoon of soda, simmer until you can easily see that 
outer covering of the bean curls up when you breathe upon a 
spoonful in trying. Then strain off soda water and place them 
in clear water and boil slowly, simmer is better, until they are 
tender, but not in pieces. Now take your baking dish, place in 
a large layer of beans, then season them with salt and a little 
granulated sugar. Another layer of beans with the seasoning, 
and so on until they are nearly out, then place in the centre 1 
lb. of lean salt pork. Finish placing the layers of beans and the 
seasoning. Pour over the beans until they are entirely covered 
the liquor they boiled in last, and use it in replenishing as they 
dry out, but aim to have them nice and dry and whole when 
ready to serve. Bake in a slow oven five or six hours. If you 
are fond of tomatoes, they are delicious, after being stewed and 
seasoned to taste, to mix through the beans just before serving. 
Mrs. Jessie Stroud Peck, Ravensivood.

CORN FRITTERS. 

One dozen and a half large ears of fresh, green corn, 2 
eggs, a heaping teaspoon of salt, ^4 teaspoon of pepper and 4 
teaspoons of milk. Remove the husks and silk from the com, 
score each row of kernels down the center, from end to end, 
and scrape out the contents with the back of the knife, by hold- 
ing the ear nearly upright and the blade of the knife almost 
flat against it; this prevents spattering, and for the same pur- 
pose it is as well to do all the scraping on a large platter. Scrape 
at least twice around the cob, and be sure to remove all the milk 
and yellow substance, but none of the skin. Next beat the eggs 
thoroughly at one end of the platter, then beat them into the 
corn, add the salt, pepper and milk, and after all is thoroughly 
beaten together, fry by the spoonful on a cake griddle that is 
very hot and has been well greased with cooking butter. By 
the time the last spoonful is laid on, the first spoonful should be 
ready to turn. They should be a rich, light brown, and will all 
be of the same shape if the batter is allowed to run on the 
griddle from the point of the spoon. They should be served as 
soon as cooked — only a griddleful at a time. 

STUFFED GREEN PEPPERS. 

Cut the stem ends from as many peppers as there are people 
to be served. Remove the insides with a sharp knife, scald for 
five minutes and drain. Cold chopped meat of any kind, or

nieat with 1 tablespoon cracker crumbs, season with chopped 
fresh tomato, a little onion juice, salt and pepper to taste.

ter, let butter run all over pan and when bubbling turn in

neath. Set in oven on upper grate to dry the top. When 
the whole center is dry, run a knife around the edge, 
then under the half nearest the handle and fold over to 

36 



the right. The remnants of ham cut fine and added im- 
prove the omelet. To have a foam omelet add only half of the 
beaten whites to the yolks, and when nearly cooked spread the 
remainder over the top ; let it heat through ; fold over and the 
white will burst out round the edge like a border of foam.

serving eggs, or use a common platter placed over hot water, 
or bake in shells in a moderate oven ten minutes, first pricking 
several holes with a large pin in the large end of the egg to 
keep the air within from bursting the shell as it expands. No.

"SIDNEY SMITH'S WINTER SALAD." 

Two large potatoes passed thro' kitchen sieve, 

Unwonted softness to the salad give ; 

Of mordaunt mustard add a single spoon —

But deem it not, tho' made of herbs, a fault 

To add a double quantity of salt ; 

Three times the spoon with oil of Lucca crown, 

And once with vinegar procured from town. 

True flavor needs it, and your poet begs 

The pounded yellow of two well boiled eggs. 

Let onion atoms lurk within the bowl. 

And, half suspected, animate the whole ; 

And, lastly, on the favored compound toss 

A magic teaspoon of Anchovy sauce. 

Then, tho' green turtle fail, tho' venison's tough, 

Tho' ham and turkey are not boiled enough.

This Vatican punch was first made for Pope Pius VI at 
the time Napoleon entered Italy, 1797. A son of the chief 
confectioner to the Pope, named Nolas, ran away from his 
father and united his fortunes with the French. He later 
became the favorite cook to the Empress Josephine and after 
her death to the Russian Prince Lieven, whom he accompanied 
to London, where the prince was appointed ambassador to the 
court of St. James. This Italian made the Papal beverage for 
the Prince's table. The Prince procured the recipe and per- 
mitted a few of his friends to copy it. It has been passed down 
from one generation to another to the present. G. T,

HOW TO PRESERVE A HUSBAND. 

Ee careful in your selection, do not choose too young and 
take only such varieties as have been reared in a good moral 
atmosphere. When once decided upon and selected, let that 
part remain forever settled, and give your entire thought to 
preparation for domestic use. Some insist on keeping them in 
a pickle, while others are constantly getting them into hot 
water. Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and 
good by garnishing them with patience well sweetened with 
smiles and flavored with kisses, to taste ; then wrap well in a 
mantle of charity, keep warm with a steady fire of devotion and 
serve with peaches and cream. When thus prepared they will 
keep for years. Aunt Sarah,

THINGS WORTH KNOWING, 

'' There is a knack in doing many a thing, 
Which labor cannot to perfection bring; 
Therefore, however great in your own eyes. 
Pray do not hints from other folks despise." 

If you wish to serve peas as an entree, cut out with a cookie 
cutter a round of bread from an ordinary sized slice of bread, 
then two rings with a doughnut cutter. Dip them in melted 
butter and toast delicately brown in the oven. Fill the cavities 
with peas cooked in a delicate cream sauce. 

Freshen the house by putting a few drops of oil of lavender 
in an ornamental bowl,'then half fill it with very hot water. This 
will give a delightful freshness to the atmosphere. 

To secure rose flavoring, fill a wide-mouthed bottle with 
fresh petals, packing them down as tight as possible. Then 
pour over them enough pure alcohol to submerge. 

Flower vases can be easily purified and cleaned by rinsing 
them out with warm water and powdered charcoal. 

A recent addition to the list of savory salts is onion salt, 
which is now put up in shaker cans or bottles for flavoring use. 

To take white spots from varnished furniture, hold a hot 
plate over them and they will disappear. 

For rose syrup, collect fresh petals each morning and spread 
on a tray to dry. When enough have been collected for a 
tumbler of preserve put in a fresh granite or porcelain kettle 
with just enough water to cover, and simmer until tender. 

Celerv should be allowed to lie in cold water to which a little 
salt has been added, for an hour before it is required for the 
table. This will make it very crisp.

To Brighten Coppcrware. — A little crushed borax if 
sprinkled thickly in a flannel cloth that is wet with hot water 
and well soaked will brighten the copper like magic. 

For Cake and Pie Pans. — Warm the pans and rub the inside 
with paraffine wax. This is superior to the old method of 
greasing the pans with butter. 

To prevent the odor of cabbage or onion throw red pepper 
pods into the pan they are cooking in. 

Save liquor from pickled peaches or pears for use in mince 
meat. 

Clean flatirons with salt, if rusty use kerosene. 

Cracker crumbs cannot be compared to bread crumbs for 
breading, either in crispness or flavor. 

In steaming puddings, potpies or dumplings never remove 
the cover from the steamer until done, for they will fall. 

The frugal housewife has the bones and trimmings from her 
meats sent home from the market to be used for soup stock.

dry stretch the skin again and it will be like new. 

To prevent the juice of pies from running out bind the edge 
of the pie when ready for the oven with a strip of cotton cloth 
1 inch wide, wet in cold water. 

Cut hot bread or cake with a hot knife. 

A little cold boiled coffee or turpentine mixed with stove 
blacking will produce a fine gloss. 

Always remove fruit or vegetables from the cans as soon as 
opened. 

If hot grease is spilled on the floor pour turpentine on it and 
it will soon disappear. 

Add a little dissolved borax to starch and it will give a fine 
polish. 

In making mush to fry, use part milk with the water. It 
will be richer and brown more readily. 

When the whites of eggs are used and the yolks not required 
at the same time, drop them into a cup, cover the surface with 
a little cold water, place in a cool place and they will keep 



several days without hardening.

equals about H o^ ^ cupful, or 2 ounces or 1 heaping table- 
spoonful. 

Boil green vegetables in salted water until done, and then

In choosing a husband you should not be guided by the 
silverv appearance, as in buying mackerel ; nor in the golden 
tint, as if you wanted a salmon. Be sure to select him yourself, 
as tastes differ. 

GARNISHES, 

For oysters, sardines, fish, roast veal or salads, lemon slices 
make a desirable garnish. For cold meats, chops and cutlets, 
parsley or celery tops. 

For decorating fowl nothing better than watercress can be 
used. Balls made of boiled rice with jelly on each are attractive 
on a plate of cold meat. 

In garnishing cold corned beef sliced gherkins and large 
pickles sliced make an attractive garnish. For game, cold 
tongue, fried oysters or roast veal, currant jelly is used as 
garnish. 

Never under any circumstances serve a heavy soup at a 
luncheon.
