TO COOK A STEAK.
Tho ProccsB in Detail as Practiced by
tho Best Coolcs.
The steak should bo purchased from a good
butcher. It should bo the Birloin cut, with tho
bone removed. It should bo an' inch or an
inch and a quarter in thickness, and should
weigh from a pound and a half to two pounds.
Two or three hours before cooking tho
steak mix a tablespoonful of olive oil with a
teaspoonful of salt and a quarter-teaspoonful
of popper. Rub this mixture thoroughly over
both sides of the steak and let It He on a plato
until time to cook it.
Two objects are attained by this process
the steak Is thoroughly seasoned through,
without waste of tho juices, which are pre
vented from passing out by tho oil, and tho
oil passes Into tho fibre of the meat, making
it tender and rich.
Put the steak on a broiler and place tho
broiler over a fire of bright coals, cook each
side of the steak briskly for one minute, then
sprinkle a little ashes over the fire to let the
steak broil for ten or fifteen minutes.
Finally, servo promptly onahotplatterwltb
water cress; put no butter, salt or pepper on
tho steak. This is tho way steaks are prepared
by tho best cooks.
Speaker Crisp Has a Cold.
Dr. Ralph Walsh, Speaker Crisp's physician,

deed, and would, unless something now un
foreseen prevented, be iu perfect condition to
resumo his duties on the reassembling of Con
