"We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; wo may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks. He may live without books, — what is knowledge but grieving? He may live without hope, — what is hope but deceiving? He may live without love, — what is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining? " — [Owex Meredith. FROM THE PRESS OF ADAMS & FARLEY, 83 MIDDLE STREET. LOWELL, MASS. 1888.

Our object has been the old one — to make some money. We have recarpeted our Church, and by this means have tried to help pay for it. We are gratified at our success. Our task has been arduous, for it has involved hard work, but it has been a pleasant one. We have made many acquaintances and have been treated with almost uniform courtesy. We thank our advertisers for their generous response to our call. We sincerely hope their invest- ment will be profitable. We are sure it will, if they let their wives have a copy of this book, for men, we are told, do like a good dinner. For ourselves, we know better than ever whom to patronize, and to whom to refer our husbands and friends. We also thank the friends who buy the book. May it enlarge their culinery vision! And so we launch our little book upon the sea, hoping its esculent suggestions may find safe harbor in many a larder, and gather smiles and benedictions around many a well filled board.

To make this condiment, your poet begs The pounded yellow of two hard boiled eggs; Two boiled potatoes, pass'd through kitchen sieve, Smoothness and softness to the salad give; Let onion atoms lurk within the bowl, And half suspected, animate the whole; Of mordant mustard add a single spoon, Distrust the condiment that bites so soon; But, deem it not, thou man of herbs, a fault To add a double quantity of salt; Four times the spoon with oil from Lucca crown, And twice with vinegar produced from town; And, lastly, o'er the flavored compound toss A magic sou peon of auchory sauce. Oh, green and glorious! O, herbaceous treat! T'would tempt a dying anchorite to eat; Back to the world he'd turn his fleeting soul, And plunge his fingers in the salad bowl!

OUR COOK BOOK. 87 The secret of a good day is a good morning, and a good morning always begins the night before. So, many things toward a good start the coming day can be done the hour before you retire. It is a good plan to wrap cans of fruit in newspapers and put them away in a dark, cool place. The wrapping in paper and keeping dark is said to prevent the bleaching of the fruit. For stains on the hands nothing is better than a little salt, with enough lemon juice to moisten it, rubbed on the spots and then washed off in clear water. In a basin of water, salt, of course, falls to the bottom; so never soak salt tish with the skin side down, as the salt will fall to the skin and remain there. Never Done. "Men work from morn till set of sun." They do. "But woman's work is never done.'' Quite true. For when one task she's finished, something's found Awaiting a beginning, all year round. Whether it be To draw the tea, Or bake the bread, Or make the bed, Or ply the broom, Or dust the room, Or floor to scrub, Or knives to rub, Or table to set, Or meals to get, Or shelves to scan, Or fruit to can, Or seeds to sow, Or plants to grow, Or linens to bleach, Or lessons to teach, Or butter to churn, Or jackets to turn, Or polish glass, Or plate of brass, Or clothes to mend, Or children to tend, Or notes indite, Or stories write— Those oars propel your barks o'er household seas In sunny heavens where you rest at ease, And, one word more, don't you forget it, please. — [Western Plowman. 88 OUR COOK BOOK.

"I Bring You Health." It is certain that Catarrh is caused by a poisoned and scrofulous state of the Blood. The best remedy, therefore, for this disease is Ayer's Sarsapariila, which, if perseveringly used, according to directions, eradi- cates every trace of Catarrhal virus from the system. No other treatment proves so ef- fectual in reaching the source of this loathsome and danger- ous malady. "When Ayer's Sarsapariila was re- commended to me for catarrh, I was inclined to doubt its efficacy. Having tried so many medicines with little ben- efit, I had no faith that anything would cure me. I became emaciated from loss of appetite and impaired digestion. I had nearly lost the sense of smell, and my system was badly deranged. I was about discouraged, when a friend urged ine to try Ayer's Sarsapariila and referred me to persons whom it had cured of catarrh. After taking half a dozen bottles of this medicine, I am con- vinced that the only sure way of treating this obstinate disease is through the blood. My cure is perfect." — Charles H. Maloney, 113 River St., Lowell, M(tss. " I was troubled with catarrh for over two years. I tried various remedies, but received no benefit until I commenced tailing Ayer's Sarsapariila, a few bottles of which cured me." — Jesse M. Boggs, Holman'a 31ills, Albemarle JV. C.
