ijniversal Cook Book,
Take six pounds of shin of beef ; wipe it and cut meat from the bone
into small pieces; put bone and part of meat into a kettle and cover with
four quarts of cold water. Let it soak a half hour. Take marrow which
was cut from meat and melt in a pan. Slice three onions and fry brown
in marrow, skim into the kettle and put in remaining meat and fry brown;
add this to soup, then three tablespoons each of carrot and turnips, two
stalks celery, little parsley and bayleaf, ten cloves, ten pepper corns and
three teaspoons mixed herbs, tied in a cloth. One tablespoon salt.
Simmer eight or ten hours and strain. Cool quickly. Remove the fat,
allow white and shell of one egg for each quart of stock. Beat egg and
mix well with cold stock. Then heat and boil five minutes. Remove, add
one-half cup cold water and let it stand until ready to strain. Strain
through napkin or double cheese cloth laid over fine strainer.
Procure a shin of beef. Have it broken in parts, let it boil slowly at
the back of the range all day in a gallon of water; at night skim out the
bones and meat, and set the soup away in a cool place, closely covered.
Next morning you will have a thick jelly covered with fat which should be
skimmed off, leaving a fine base for soup, which may be weakened if
preferred. If not, add for soup an onion and a piece of butter, size of an
^gg, which have been browned in same pan, a tablespoonful of browned
flour, mixed with a teaspoonful of celery salt, and a tablespoonful of
Worchcstershire sauce; cut up a carrot, a turnip, a root of celery,
a little parsley, thyme or summer savory, and to all add a few cloves (half
a dozen) and pepper to taste. Add all and let them cook till the vegetables
are done. Then strain and serve.
SAVE THE BONES FOR SOUP.
Many housekeepers throw away the stock for good soups. You
should save the scraps of beefsteak and the bones of a roast. Two or
three kinds make it all the better. The carcass of a turkey or a pair of
fowls make excellent soup with rice or barley. Boil the bones for five or
six hours, let stand over night, then remove the fat and strain. Any kind
of soup can be made by adding tomato, vermicelli, macaroni or chopped
All vegetables are available for soup. The favorite vegetable soup
made from fresh tomatoes, corn and I,ima beans is almost as good when
the canned vegetables are employed. For chicken soup with rice and
milk, no herbs but parsley should be used. The shin of veal or beef is the
legitimate soup-bone; but any other bone may be used. Crack the bones
before boiling, for the sake of the marrow, and do not put salt in until the
meat has been well boiled — it has a tendency to harden the fibers and
prevent the flow of the jviices of the meat. You cannot well boil it too
long, short of the time when the meat boils into rags and strings. If kept
where they will not sour, and heated slowly so as not to scorch, most soups
are better the second dav than the first.

VEAL SOUP WITH SPAGHETTI.
Three pounds veal, knuckle or scrag, with the bones broken, and
meat cut off, three quarts water, one-fourth pound spaghetti. Boil the
meat in the water alone until reduced to shreds, three hours at least.
Cook the spaghetti, broken into inch pieces, in water, in a vessel by itself,
till tender. Add a little butter to the spaghetti, just as it is done; strain
the meat out of its soup; season to taste; put in the spaghetti and the
water it was cooked in. Let it boil up once and serve.
Five pounds of clear beef cut from the lower part of the round, five
quarts cold water; cut the beef into small pieces, add the water and let it
come to a boil gradually; skim carefully and set where it will keep at the
boiling point eight or ten hours; strain and set away to cool. In the morn-
ing skim off all the fat, pour the soup into a kettle, being careful to keep
back the sediment. Put into the soup one onion, one stalk of celery, two
sprigs of parsley, two sprigs of thyme, two of summer savory, two leaves of
sage, two bay leaves, twelve pepper corns, six whole cloves; boil gently
twenty minutes, strain through a napkin, first seasoning with salt and
pepper to taste; tie the herbs together before putting into the soup.
Two pounds lean beef chopped fine, pour over it one quart cold water,
put it in a porcelain kettle, cover tight and let it simmer four hours.
Strain off the tea and let it cool, beat the white of one egg and add to the
tea, put it on the stove and stir until it comes to a boil; let it
boil until it becomes perfectly clear, skimming, then strain through a fine
napkin and season with salt to taste.
Three pints of rich milk, one pint of mashed potato, two tablespoonfuls
of butter, pepper and salt to taste. Boil the milk, add the potato and boil
again, stirring frequently that the potato may become thoroughly dissolved,
and season just before serving, Serve very hot.

crumbs and pounded crackers, half and half. Fill the dish in this manner
with alternate layers of oysters, seasoning, bread and cracker crumbs,
covering the top with crumbs and lumps of butter. Do not add liquid of

Lay the meat on a rack in a pan, and dredge all over with salt, pepper
and flour. Put it in a very hot oven with two or three tablespoon fuls of
drippings of pieces of the beef fat placed in the pan. Put the skin side
down at first, that the heat may harden the juices in the lean part. Baste
often and dredge twice with salt and flour. When seared all over, turn
and bring the skin side up for the final basting and browning. Bake ten
miinutes to a pound if liked very rare. If there be any danger of burning
the fat in the pan, add a little hot water after the flour is browned.
Remove the meat when done to a heated dish, skim the drippings, add
a little boiling water, a little browned flour, and boil up once, then strain
it and send to the table in a gravy-boat.

It is simply the Pulp of the
Ripe Pepper Extracted
The seed of this pepper was obtained from Central America and by
careful cultivation in Louisiana for many years has been so improved in
strength, flavor and aroma as to have become a new variety of Red Pepper,
superior to all others. The pulp is so handled as to retain all the flavor,
strength, aroma and color of the ripe fruit, and to keep unimpaired in any
climate. It excites the appetite, promotes digestion, and is pronounced by
connoisseurs to be the finest condiment in the world. For medicinal pur-
poses it recommends itself by its purity, strength and difi"usible form.

From the Hon. Harvey D. Colvin, Ex-Mayor of Chicago:
Chicago, July 24th, 1890.
S. H. Klinck, — Dear Sir: I am pleased to say that I consider your remedy the best medicine in ex-
istence for the human afflictions you claim to cure. I suffered from catarrh with bronchitis for many
years. During that time I employed physicians and faithfully tried many so-called remedies advertised
to cure this disease, without any material benefit, when a friend induced me to try your remedy, claim-
ing others had been cured by it. The first bottle gave me the most pleasing results. I have continued
its use and cannot say too much for it. It found me too near the grave for comfort and restored me to
health again. It adorns my toilet stand and by using it occasionally I am kept well.
I would not be without it if it cost $2S per bottle. I earnestly recommend it to all my afflicted

ity of its Policy Contract, and for Wsfair dealing with its members. No policy can be forfeited
after the second year as long as any value remains to continue the insurance. The Full Reserve value
of a lapsed Policy computed on the 4 per cent, standard is applied to keeping the insurance in force; or,
if preferred, to the purchase of a Paid up Policy at the Company's regular published rates. After the
second year Policies are incontestable, except against intentional fraud, and all restrictions upon travel
or occupation are removed. The Company loans up to one-half of the reserve value of its Policies
when satisfactory assignments can be made as collateral security; and its practice as to the purchase of
Policies for cash values has always been extremely liberal. Losses are paid immediately on com-

Inventors have long sought a suitable method of canning fruit and
other foods tvithotit cookimj or the use of chemicals. Hundreds of
dollars and years of patient labor have been expended, but it has been re-
served for a woman — Miss Amanda T. Jones, of Chicago — to be the inven-
tor of this hitherto undiscovered process. The practicability of the process
being established, a company has been incorporated with '|i, 000,000 cap-
italization under the name of
THE WOMAN'S CANNING i PRESER VING CO.
Manufacturing was begun in January of this j-ear. The first
product — lunch tongues — (for the process is applicable to cooked foods as
well), has produced the verdict from wholesale dealers, that with such im-
provements the whole canning industry wull be revolutionized. Three
factories, besides the one now in operation, will be established before
The new process consists of j^lf^cing the cans in a hollow
chest from which the air has been expelled by hot steam and
that in turn condensed by sjyraying cold ttfater without. This
produces a vacnmn and the cans are then sealed by delicate machinerj'.
As every particle of gas is thus expelled from the canned goods, tleconi-
position is impossible. The process further is so simjile that
its cost is relatively less than the ordinary methods.

it is best to make it pound for pound. It should be cooked three quarters
of an hour and must be carefully watched to prevent burning. The best
way to cover jam and jelly is with melted parafine, which excludes all air.
The best way to retain the natural flavor is to put equal quantities of
granulated sugar and grated pine-apple in small jars and cover tightly. It
is delicious for ices, creams or puddings.
For five pounds of currants use four of sugar, a pint of vinegar and two
