Hasty Pudding First.
For many }'ears the New England col
onist dined exactly at noon, and on farms
half an hour earlier. On Saturday all ate
fish for dinner. Judge Sewall frequently
speaks of his Saturday dinner of Hsh. Fish
days had been prescribed by the King in
England in order that the fisheries might
not fail of support, owing to the increased
consumption in meat induced by the reform
ation in religion.
New Englanders obeyed the mandate but
ate codfish on Saturday because the Paptists
ate fish on Friday. As regards the method
of serving a meal in colonial tiuats, all we
know is that the hasty pudding came first,
for the purpose, perhaps, of breaking the
force of the boys' appetites
In an account of a Sunday dinner given
at the house of ex-President John Adams,
as late as 1817, the tirst course was a pud
ding of Indian corn, with molasses and
butter; the second course consisted cf veal,
bacon, neck of mutton and vegetables.
There is, however, some reason to believe
that N"ew England tables were less lavishly
set forth in the first quarter cf this century
than in "the good old colony times, when
we lived under the king."
Can Have it at Home.
Devonshire cream is one of the delicious
things that American visitors to one of the
most noted dairy regions of England talk
a great deal about. A writer in the Elgin
Dairy Report says like cream may just as
well be had at home. Rich new milk is put
in a very shallow vessel with an extended
surface, and is then set on the range,
where the milk will be wanned, but on no
account must it boil or even scald. Tlio
heat will cause all the cream to rise to the
surface in a .very short time, and the pan
is then taken off aud placed in the ice
box or in a cool place. When thoroughly
chilled the cream may be taken off and will
be nearly of the consistency of newly made
butter. This is put in jars, and at break
fast >s helped with a spoon and is delicious
with oatmenl, jam, berries—everything,
in fact, that ordinary cream is used for. its
merits being that not only does one obtain
the richest -jream; but it will keep for two
or three days without souring.
A Detroit Free Press inun hua been
counting up the "thirteens" on the United
States silver quarter. Fie finds it to have
13 stars, 13 letters in the scroll held in the
eagle's beak, 13 marginal feathers ou each
wing, 13 tail feathers, 13 parallel lines in
the shield, 13 horizontal bars, 13 arrow
heads and 13 letters in the "quarter
dollar. And yet we'll wager that if you
ask ihe possessor of one of these coins to
"give yon the loan of it" for a few days lie
will consider it such an unlucky thing to do
that he will refuse. In these times, without
doubt, the safest thing to do is to hang on
to the quarter ami take the chauccs on
When some one comes out with a very
cheap farm separator and a cheap power
with which to run it, a new era will dawn
upon the private dairy business. To hand
the milk to the separator and haul the
separated milk back to the farm to be fed,
is a waste of time and its equivalent money
that inventive gvniai is called upon to
stop. With cheap machinery the farmer can
do hi 3 own separating and keep the by-pro
duct it home in first-class condition for
f;eding. Yankee brain will soon solve the
problem of a farm separate or within easy
reach of every man ; able to keep a dozen
cows or so. *
It is a pretty poor cow that will uot pay
its keeping in this country of cheap pastur
age and cheap fodder. Bat we 11 Wttger a
pound "print" that one-half those now
being milked could be replaced by animal*
that would come near doubling the present
product. Breed up, and weed out. That is
the way eastern dairymen have done and
are yet doing.
At the horticultural show held at Kent,
in tin; autumn of ISOO, apples, pears,
peaches, plums and prunes from young
trees growing upon the hills were as large
as those from valley orchards, and for
color, smothness and flavor they were
superior. At the strawberry show, held at
the same place, the following June, tlie
best colored and finest flavored berries
came from the bills.
