Of all appeals— although
I grant the power of pathos and of gold,
Of beauty, flattery, threats, a shilling— no
Method's more sure at moments to take hold
Of the best feelings of mankind, which grow
More tender, as we every day behold,
Than that all-softening, overpowering knell,
The Tocsin of the soul— the dinner bell.

She was cutting bread and butter."
PERPETUAL YEAST-Mrs. Briggs
A quart preserving can is the most convenient thing to start
and to keep this yeast in. To begin a can of this perpetual
yeast, dissolve a compressed yeast cake in a quarter of a cup of
lukewarm potato water — that is, the water in which the potatoes
for dinner are cooked. Fill a quart can of glass half full of luke-
warm potato water. Add half a cup granulated sugar to it, and
when this is dissolved add the quarter of a cup of dissolved
yeast. Stir well and set the can containing the yeast in a
moderately warm place, but not where it will be heated percep-
tibly, and let it stand until the whole is very light. Seal up the
can and the day before you are ready to make bread, fill the can
full of lukewarm potato water and add another half cup of sugar.
Let the can stand for about twenty-four hours. Beat the foam-
ing white yeast and use a pint, or half the can, for four small
or three large loaves of bread. Use as much lukewarm water
as you do of yeast, and mix the bread at once, kneading it
thoroughly. Seal up the can of yeast, set it away and a day be-
fore the yeast is needed fill up the can again with lukewarm
potato water, in which the potatoes were boiled, and a half cup
sugar, and it is ready for use again when it is risen.
GRAHAM BREAD -Mrs. Baldwin
Stir into a quart of water (warm in winter and cold in sum-
mer) enough wheat flour to make a soft batter, also a cup of
yeast. Let rise over night. In the morning add salt, one-half
tea cup molasses, one teaspoon soda in cup of boiling water and
enough Graham flour to make batter thick enough to pour into

loudly. This beating will occupy at least one-half hour. When
the blisters are abundant, tear off pieces of dough as large as
an egg, mold with hand in form of a biscuit. Prick the top of
each biscuit with fork and bake in moderate oven.
It is a well understood fact it never fails to give the best results
if properly handled

half-pint of milk, warmed; add to the dry ingredients with the

"Appetite comes with eating, says Augeston."
To a two-bit shin of beef I add what beefsteak and meatbones
I may have, add six quarts of water, cover tightly, and boil
gently all day. Strain at night and set away to cool. The next
day skim the fat from it and, if the stock is not a thick jelly,
put it on the stove and boil still longer. This should make three
quarts of rich jelly, to which you can add rice, barley, macaroni,
vermicelli or vegetables, or whatever you fancy, as a flavoring.
The fat I skim from the soup I put on the stove and boil until
it is transparent, pour it into a small pan or tin and use it in the
place of butter or lard for cooking. It is much superior to but-
ter or lard for frying or shortening.
BEAN SOUP-Mrs. Ford
Wash and boil your beans with a piece of salt pork. When
the beans are soft take them out and press through a colander,
then put them back in the water they were boiled in, together

a little pepper and salt. Boil up and serve.
ASPARAGUS SOUP— Miss Annie Laughlin

size of an egg, salt and cayenne pepper to taste, two crackers
rolled fine. Heat milk and tomatoes separately. Mix in tureen
just before serving.
OYSTER STEW— Mrs. R. H. Thomson
One can of best cove oysters, one quart sweet milk, one table-
spoon butter, two tablespoons flour, salt and pepper to taste.
Strain the liquor from the oysters and to this add the milk.
When it has reached the boiling point thicken with the flour
into which the butter has been rubbed. When this has boiled,
pour over the oysters which are in the soup tureen and serve
POTATO SOUP-Mrs. Eldredge
Four medium sized potatoes cut in very small pieces. Pour on
one quart boiling water, little salt, pepper and good slice of but-
ter. Let boil until soft. Rub through a sieve. Just before serv-
ing add one teaspoon of flour mixed with cold water, two cups
of milk and let boil up once.
ONION SOUP-Mrs. Bryant
Slice and fry six large onions until quite brown, add two
quarts rich milk, one tablespoon butter, one teaspoon cayenne
pepper and salt to taste. Thicken with two tablespoons flour
mixed with cold water. Serve very hot.
SPLIT PEA SOUP-Mrs. R. H. Thomson
One cup split peas, one and one-half pounds lean neck of beef
(no bone) , two thin slices of salt pork, three quarts cold water.
Wash and soak peas for an hour, cut meat in small pieces. Put
all together in soup kettle and cook for three hours; you may
have to add some boiling water at the last. When done thicken
with one tablespoon of flour rubbed smooth in one-half cup of
creamy milk; strain and serve with toast bread cubes.
CREAM CELERY SOUP-Mrs. S. E. Polhemus
Take the root and several stalks of celery cut in small pieces,
cover with water (being careful not to use too much) add a lump
of butter and salt and pepper. Boil until celery is tender, then
add a quart of milk and let come to the boiling point. Take three
or four slices of bread cut in small squares and fry in a little
butter to a light brown, place in tureen and pour the soup over
BEAN SOUP-Mrs. R. H. Thomson
One large cup of small white beans, two pounds lean neck of
beef. Soak the beans over night and boil three-fourths of an
hour, changing water twice. Put the beans into the soup kettle
with the meat, cook until the beans can not be found, and the
meat to shreds. Salt and pepper to taste, add a cup of creamy
milk, strain and serve. This is also nice with toast cubes
instead of crackers.
CLAM SOUP-Mrs. SamuelJ. Holms
Place one pint clams in bowl and chop very fine. Put one
quart milk on the stove with the liquor of the c'ams, season
with pepper and salt. Roll four or five crackers and sprinkle in
milk. Chop fine one small piece of onion and let all boil up.

CLAM CHOWDER— Mrs. W. P. Slusser

TOMATO FOR SOUPS, SAUCES, ETC.— Mrs. M. J. Granger
Skin and boil tomatoes, then strain free from seeds. Then
boil down as thick as possible without burning, and bottle hot
in glass jars or bottles that can be made air tight, the same as
in canning fruit. Small bottles are preferable to large ones, as
it does not keep well after being opened. The pulp after being
boiled down, can also be dried, by being spread thinly on buttered
plates. The dried pulp readily dissolves in soup.
NOODLES— Mrs. E. S. Denner
Into two eggs work with a knife as much flour as possible,
also a pinch of salt. Turn out on molding-board and mold well,
using plenty of flour. Roll very thin, and leave for two or three
hours to dry. Cut in equal pieces and place one above the other,
then cut in thin strips and shake loosely apart. Put into rapidly
boiling water for ten minutes. Have ready frying-pan with a
good piece of butter melted and hot; remove the noodles with a
skimmer, let drain a minute, then put into the pan with the
butter for ten minutes, and serve. Good with or without meat.
FRENCH SOUP-Mrs. E. S. Denner
In a strong, clear soup, just before serving, add two well
beaten eggs very gradually. Pour into tureen at once.

OLD-FASHIONED FRITTERS— Mrs. Parker Maddux

RAVIOLI— Mrs. Tovani
One pound of lean pork chopped fine, two cups of stale bread
soaked in water, parsley and spinnach, one green onion chopped
fine until you have one coffee-cup full, one cup of mashed pota-
toes. Put pork and greens in a frying-pan on back of stove,

Romano cheese, a few leaves of summer sage and mint, a little

teaspoon each of cloves and nutmeg (ground), one teaspoon of
allspice, salt to taste; three eggs well beaten, one-fourth cup
mushrooms chopped fine, two teaspoons black pepper. Stir un-
til well mixed. Take noodle paste ( page 19 ) roll thin but thick

each one a dessert-spoon of this mixture; turn over the other

firmly. Drop in boiling water salted to taste and let boil fifteen

one-half a chicken chopped fine (not cooked), one dozen olives,

"Some hae meat and canra eat,
And some would eat that want it.
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit."
RULES FOR COOKING MEATS
Put all salt meats in cold water; all fresh meats, excepting
for soups, into hot water, then cook slowly. All roast meats,
excepting veal, are put dry into a very hot oven; veal requiring
a little more moisture. When well browned, add hot water; and
when about half done, salt. Never salt meat until partially
cooked. Rare meat requires about fifteen minutes to the pound.
Baste all roasts frequently. Roast beef requires a hotter oven
than any other meat.
MOLDED VEAL— Miss Annie Laughlin
Ten cent knuckle veal and boil until it can be pierced with
fork. Take from liquor and cool. When cold cut into small
pieces. Have ready three hard boiled eggs. Slice eggs length-
wise. Commence by putting slices of egg in mold, then meat
and alternate in this wise until all is used with an occasional all
clove and pepper corn. When all is ready pour over the liquor
which is boiling hot and has been freed from grease or settlings.
Set away to cool. Serve cold cut in slices. If liquor seems too
thin, add one teaspoon Knox Gelatine.
DUMPLINGS— Mrs. Miller
To each cup full of sifted flour add one teaspoon of baking
powder, add a little salt, sift until thoroughly mixed, then add
half as much milk as flour (by measure) and beat a minute.
Drop by spoonfuls into the stew, cover tightly and boil twelve
STUFFING FOR A TURKEY
For a turkey weighing from eight to ten pounds allow one loaf
of stale baker's bread, one quart of oysters, one lemon, two
roots of celery and one-quarter of a pound of butter. It is taken
for granted that the turkey is thoroughly cleaned and wiped dry
before putting the stuffing in. Crumble the bread till very fine;
season with pepper and salt. Drain the oysters, setting the
liquor aside. Now take a very sharp knife and peel off the
outer rind of the lemon, being careful not to have any of the
bitter and tough white skin left on. Cut the peel in very small
bits, chop the white part of the celery very fine, adding the but-
ter and the juice of the lemon. Mix the ingredients mentioned,
stirring until thoroughly mixed; then proceed to stuff body and
crop. A turkey of the size spoken of requires at least two hours
baking, and it should be basted frequently; the liquor of the
oysters should be put in the pan when the pan is first set in the
oven, and this is to be used in basting. The giblets and livers
should be cooked in a basin on top of the stove, then chopped
fine, and when the gravy is made, add them to it.
VEAL OR. BEEF LOAF— Miss Annie Laughlin
Three pounds chopped veal or beef, three well-beaten eggs,
salt and pepper to taste, one-half cup butter. Powdered cracker
to make the above the consistency of dough. Make into a loaf
and bake until done, basting with butter. Use hot water to
moisten the ingredients if it is too dry to mold with hand.
BOILED TONGUE— Miss Annie Laughlin
Soak tongue over night and boil four hours in milk and water,
peel and place on platter; garnish with parsley.
DAUBE a La CREOLE -Mrs. H. H. Brooks
Three pounds of the round of veal or beef, two large onions,
two tablespoons of flour, two cloves of garlic, two large toma-
toes, one bay leaf, one sprig of thyme and parsley, salt, pepper,
and cayenne to taste, one tablespoon of lard. Make incisions
in the meat and put the garlic into them; then rub the meat
well with salt and pepper. Put into the hot lard and cover well;
when brown on both sides put in a half cup of water; when this
cooks up, put in onions and flour; when brown put in tomatoes
and other ingredients, and set back on stove; let simmer slowly
about five minutes, then put in three cups of water and let cook
one hour slowly.

CANNELON OF BEEF— Janet Mackenzie Hill
Two pounds of lean beef from top of round, one tablespoon-
f ul of fine-chopped parsley, one teaspoonful of salt, one tea-
spoonful of onion juice, one-fourth teaspoonful of mace, one

GRILLADES a La CREOLE— Mrs. H. H. Brooks
One round steak, two tomatoes, one large onion, one clove of
garlic, salt and pepper and cayenne to taste. Select a nice round
steak and beat well; cut into grillades (pieces) about four inches
square. Put a tablespoon of lard in a deep frying-pan and cover
closely. When the steak browns put in a half cup of water and
set back on the stove; when this browns put in the sliced onions
and garlic; when a light brown, put in a tablespoon of flour, and
as it browns, put in tomatoes and let brown. Then put in two cups
of water and stir well. Set it back on stove and let it simmer
slowly for about half an hour. This makes enough for six
WHOLESOME WAY TO COOK HAM— Miss C. Denner
Cut the pieces of meat in full thick slices straight across the
ham, and place them in a frying-pan, covering well with boiling
water. Set the pan directly over the fire for a few minutes,
that it may boil rapidly, and then transfer it to the bottom of
the oven, where it must be left to cook slowly for fully one hour.
Replenish the pan with hot water as often as necessary, as the
ham must not actually "fry" until the hour has passed. When
this time has elapsed, howeyer, return the pan to the top of the
stove that the meat may brown.
A GOOD WAY TO COOK MUTTON OR LAMB- Mrs. Chas. Hoffer
Take a leg of lamb and put in a kettle with some lard and
brown thoroughly, then add one-half cup of water and cook
gently for one-half hour. Then add one cup of clabber and one
cup of sour cream, and about a tablespoon of salt. Cook slowly
for two hours. Serve with mashed potatoes.

EXTRACT OF BEEF BLOOD— Miss Annie Laughlin
Catch in bowl warm beef blood and let it stand until it clots,
which will not be long. Now take out and lay on a clean and
smooth board and cut in narrow strips, tilt board and stand in
hot sun. In a short time all watery substance will have run
away and that left is dry and will crumble. It must crumble
or it is not ready, rub in palm of hand until a fine powder, sift
through fine wire sieve, bottle and it will keep for years. This
can be taken in plain soup or dry as most acceptable to patient;
the strength gained is wonderful. When cutting to dry, cut in
as narrow strips as possible. To be given to any person with
little strength or vitality.

while hot, straining through a thin cloth. Seal bottles and keep
in a dark place.

Pour the stew over the bread, adding the pieces of mutton.
OAT MEAL BLANC MANGE— Miss Annie Laughlin

skillet, sear both sides of meat, gash pieces with knife, place

Washing Made a Pleasure — HORTON Washing Machine at MAILER'S
COOBUBJG DIRKED FRUITS
To make a most delicious conserve of either apples, apricots,
pears, peaches, figs or prunes, proceed as follows: Pick over the
fruit and wash it thoroughly but quickly. Put it in a dish,
earthen is preferable, at about noontime, and covering it gen-
erously with water, allow it to soak during that afternoon and
night. In the morning take the fruit carefully out into a cook-
ing utensil — a graniteware kettle or saucepan or an earthen
crock — and pour over it, being careful not to disturb the sedi-
ment at the bottom, the water in which it was soaked; then
cover the dish tightly and set it either on the back of the range
or in a moderate oven, where it will quietly simmer, and let it
remain there for eight or ten hours.
If you have an unreasoning sweet tooth, and must spoil things
with sugar, add that article not more than twenty minutes be-
fore removing the cooked fruit from the range, and add it spar-
ingly, since, by this method of cooking, all the natural flavor
and saccharine quality of the fruits are preserved, and nearly
everyone who is privileged to taste them thus prepared readily
concedes that they are quite "sufficient unto themselves."
Prunes and dried grapes become simply "idealized" under
this treatment- plump, smooth, juicy and generally delicious,
and the sliced or quartered fruits rival the daintiest and richest
of preserves in their amber-hued translucency, as well as in
Verily, if the cooks and housewives would add to their little
bills of fares the dried fruits of California, cooked after the
fashion herein prescribed, the cry for "more" would be so loud
and so unanimous that all the State's broad orchards would be
quite inadequate to supply the demand of even the home market.
