Hashing- meats is a fine art.
Meat can never be twice cooked with
out injury to the article; hence the
process of hashing- should be a warm
ing only. Perhaps the best way is
strong steaming until it is completely
warmed through. This completed, the
hash may be best treated with a piquant
ketchup of mushroom or tomato, and
then be quickly served.
To Make a Fowl Tkndkr.— When
it is drawn and stuffed it is wrapped in
two thicknesses of brown paper and
tightly bound with twine so that none
of the vapor or steam may escape. Ac
cording- to its size and ag-e, the fowl is
allowed to cook in a very hot oven,
within its envelope of paper, from an
hour to an hour and a half. When the
fowl is taken out remove the paper,
which is to be burned with all the
grease it may contain. The bird is
now dredged with flour, replaced in
the oven and basted every few minutes
with the juice which may flow into the
pan. As soon as it has assumed a
deep brown color it is served with a
rich gravy. Full-grown pigeons
cooked in this way are said to be equal
The African diamond fields are in
the Orang-e Free State, where there is
one important mine at Jag-ersfontein,
and in the British colony of Griqua
Land West, where there are four. Of
these the best known are the Kimber
ley mine and the De Beet's, the latter
of which was so admirably illustrated
in last summer's Columbian exhibi
It is but twenty-five years since the
gems were discovered on the Dark
continent, and the value of the an
nual yield now amounts to $20,000,000.
It is interesting- to note that notwith
standing- such large quantities are
mined and that diamonds have been so
successsully imitated, their value has
not declined more than $1 a carat.
The South African mines have yield
ed larger stones than any found in
Brazil or India. Some of them are of
a yellow tint, and therefore of low
value; but the De Beers diamond (428>^
carats) and the Jagersfontein (969^
carats), the last found less than a year
ago, are perfectly white. These
weights are for the roiifjh diamonds,
but the Kohinoor weighed only 192
o;irats, and was reduced by cutting to
The Kimberley mine has been
worked to a depth of 4<H) feet, and ver

made great changes in the diamond
trade. The Brazilian gravels are now
worked very little, as are the fields in
India and Borneo. London is the dia

It's a poor mule that won't work
My daughter, when you note that
the man who wants to marry you is
just too awfully anxious to learn
whether you can bake a loaf of bread
or wash a shirt with Chinese dexterity,
before you close the negotiations do
yon just fly around and ascertain
whether that man is either willing or
able to earn enough flour to make a
biscuit, and if he has paid for the shirt
he wants you to wash. Nine times
out of ten, daughter, the man who
only wants to marry a housekeeper
can be kept more economically in the
workhotfse than he can in your father's
house. —R. J. Burdette.
