vegetables are not properly cooked and
ofUm come on tbe table sodden with i
water or tough and about half done.
They are, perhaps, served in the latest
culinary fashion, prettily garnished
mid delicious to look upon, but who'ly
indigestible and unfit to eat. Aspara

Vegetables require enreful cooking
and most varieties "should bo cooked
slowly, uot boiled furiously for perhaps
toifOj&flftoen minutes, but allowed to

through and through.
Asparagus which Is one of the princi
pal delicacies at this time of year was
as much prized by the ancient world'
as It Is today. The Greeks had their
asparagus beds and the Itoraans
thought so much of the vegetable that
they introduced It to the Gauls, Ger
mans and Britons. And the early set
tiers In America from England and
Holland brought with them the seeds
of the asparagus plant and asparagus
beds formed a prized' corner in the gar
dens of the new world.
In selecting asparagus at tho market
notice whether or not tho little purp.
lish heads are fresh and erect and the
cut end,1? of the stalks a little moist
' and not brown and dry. But even
moist ends are not an infallible sign
of freshness for some market men have
a bad habit of keeping asparagus fresh
looking by piecing the stems in water,
so see that the ends are not porous
but of c'ose texture if you want to be
sure your nsparagus is fresh.
A.sparagus on Toast This is the
simplest and really the best way to
cook this most succulent vegetable.
Wash the stalks carefully and cut off
two or three Inches of the hard' part,
then tie them in bundles. Some cooks
let the asparagus lie for half an hour
in cold water before cooking. The ket
tle for boiling should be deep e .ough
to allow the bundles to stand upright,
with the tips out of water. Pour in
boiling water, cover closely with a lid
or Inverted pan to hold the steam in
and cook tho tips, and boll twenty
minutes until tender, but not .soft or
spongy. Season the water with salt
just before it is done. Have ready
some slices of nicely browned toast,
dip it in tho Mparagus water, and' but
ter while hot, lay on a hot plntter,
arrange the stalks on the toast If
you prefer make a white sauce and
pour over the asparagus when served.
Cream of Asparagus Soui Cook
twelve stalk"? of asparagus In one quart
of water. Add two sprays of pars'ey,
three leaves of mint and two small
' green onions. When these are tender,
rub all through a sieve, mashing and
rubbing through as much as possible.
Return to the flro add a teaspoonful
of celery salt, one teaspoonful of pap-
rikr., one pint of hot milk and a tiny
grating of nutmeg. When It comes to
a boll, draw to tho back of the stove
and add tho yolks of two eggs beaten
with half a cupful of cream. Put a
tablospoonftil of finely chopped parsley
in the soup tureen, pour in the hot
.wup and' servo at once. If you do
not wish it so rich, one tablespoonful
of Hour rubbed smooth with a table.
spoonful of butter nicy be substituted
for tho eggs and cream; In this case
allow tho .soup to simmer ten minutes
after adding the flour.
Asparagus Salad Use cold boiled as
paragus for this dish, spread on tender
lettuce leaves, ('over with French
dreming or a rich mayonnaise.
Fried Asptragtu Use boiled aspara
gus, drain, dry, dip in egg and crumbs
and fry In deep fat. You can have
Ibis dish in tho Winter by using tho
canned vogetnbles and aip It in sea

Spring Onion Salad These very
young onions are called rareripes in
