possible to linlko a coinfortaulu 'dip

Plain cooking processes consist
of broiling, frying, baking, roasting,

The simplest and qutcKes. way to
cool: fish, flesh or fowl Is to broil it on
11 forked stick. Let vour lire burn

shaped, should bo Impaled by running
each fork twice through tho width of
Do not hold tho meat over tho coals
but In front of them, so smoke or flnmo

meat will crumble when It begins to
cook, and your tender morsel may drop
Into the lire.
I-arco fish or gamo must, of couree,
bo sliced up for brolllnc. A bIIcc of
pork or bacon, If you have it, should be
Inclosed In tho flsh or game, or skowor
cd to It, as otherwlso the meat will be
To broil several articles at onco,
place stones or a smnll log at the edge
01 the are, lay tnn uroinni; sucks
across It so the meat will bo eight or
ten Inches abovo tho coals, and stick
tho other ends In the ground, or under
stones or Inverted crotches.
If fresh coals arc needed, do not put
wood on your cooking Are, but build
a scparto flro on the leo sidewind after
It has burned down, rako tho coals o"er
where you need them. Squirrels, nuull
and crouso should bo parboiled from
fifteen minutes to half an hour heforo
broiling. If practicable.
i Such a proceeding Is simplo enough,
and anybody can do It satisfactorily
after a few trials; but one soon tires of
broiled meat three times n day, espec
ially It there is only one Kind. Now
suppose you havo killed a bird and
wish to roast It, but havo no oven, and
cannot wait to build one what can
There aro two ways, both of which
require, to begin with, a good big bed
of coals and hot ashes. Hard wood
makes the best coals; dead wood, such
as you find lying nround on the ground,
makes no coals at all.
The first method of roasting Is to
pluck and draw tho fowl, cut otf head
and feet, put a thin slice or two of pork
Inside tho bird, season It, wraa It care
fully in three or four thicknesses of
large green leaves or moistened dead
leaves, and tie securely with string or
shreds of bark.
Then dig a hole In your bed of coals
ii3 qui) as practicable, rako into It a
luytr of Jive coals, cover slightly with
hot ashes, rako tho rest of tho coals
on top there should bo a layer six
Inches deep or more and put u few
sticks on top to keep tho coals allvo.
Your roast will bo dono In an noiir, or
perhaps less time, depending upon tho
Blze of tho bird and tho condition of
the fire. Any kind of gamo or flsh n.ay
bo prepared In this manner.
But thcro Is n hotter way to roast,
which Is called "muddfng-up." Tho
description of this process may not
sound well, but I can assure you that
flsh, game or roasting ears prepared in
this wny aro tnoro savory than 1( cook
ed in tho usual manner. This Is how
to do It:
Get sorao moist clay, roll out a sheet
of It nn Inch thick ,and having drawn
and beheaded tho animal and cut off
Its feet, envelop It complete,!? In tlio
clay. Jil you aro preparing 11 flsh, do
not scnlo It; if a mammal, do not skin
it; If a fowl, removo tho pinions nnd
tall feathers, but do not plucic It fur
ther. If you cannot get clay, a thick
plaster of sticky mud will answer.
Imbed tho tinlmnl. thus encased, 111
tho coals; build a flro on top, and let
tho roasting proceed for several hours,
or overnight. Then lomovfi t'w roast,
break off tho hard baked shell or clay,
and you will find that the skin will
peel off with it, leaving tho animal
perfectly clean. Dy this method of
roasting, tho Juices, vhlcli otherwise
would evaporate, aro steamed Into tho
meat, giving It a flavor that no oen
Potatoes, corn and other vegetables
can easily bo roasted In hot ashes. In
dians had a way of steaming cdlolo
roots, and so forth .which I havo never
seen practiced oy wnitea. iney wouiu
dig a nolo in tho grojnd, heat omo
stones red hot nnd roll thorn into tho
holo, cover them with grass, lay the
roots on this, cover with moro grass,
and finish with a laer of earth. A
Bmall hole was then bored down to tho
vegetables. Into this they poured somo
wator, and Immediately stopped up tho
hole, leaving tho steam to d.) the cook
ing. Water may bo boiled In a bark uten
sil by dropping very hot stones Into
It Ulrch bark Is best for tho ketle,
but oven tho thick, bark of hardwood
trees may bo fashioned into troughs
that will answer the.uuruoHO.
To mako such a uteusjl, removo a
good sized sheet of bant from tho tree,
shavo off tho hard outer portion from
each end, ga'.b ir up the 1 linblo 'iiner
bark, and tie It. Dark rnuy bo stripped
from almost any treo, even in midwin
ter, by working carefully on tho mnuy
side of the treo with a club trimmed at

difficult to get an even top nnd bottom
by taking" two flat stones, histoid of

heating them, dusting oir, aid then in
serting tho artlclo to bo baked or ft led.
Do not use limestone, for It will quite
likely) burst when heated.
Tho, simplest, quickest and bout way
to znake bread in the wood I to bake
It on a stick. Tho Southwestern meth
od Is as follows:
Cut a green stick dimuifmt. If ou
can get It; never hickory- about tho
bIzo of a broomstick, remoo tho bark
from ono end for two or t'neo feet,
sharpen tho btlici. and set tho stick be
foro tho flro to heat. Then prepare tho
dough with batting powder, salt and
lard, as you would biscuit; roll It to a
thickness of a quarter of an Inch a
plcco of peeled sapling for rolling pin
and a sheet of bark or molding board
cut tho dough Into atrlpa, nvl wind
them spirally nround tno stick liko n
By turning this doush slowly orer
the fire, your bread rIU bako through
and brown nlcelr within flvo minutes.
On stripping it from tho stick, you
have a. hollow roll, whlca. may be filled
with butter and Jelly if you oro provid
ed with such luxuries. When tho
bread Js left on Its stick before the
Are, It keeps hot a long time, and may
bo picked off as wanted.
But bread made with baking powder
gets monotonous after u whllo and
unleavened bread 1b sometimes a wel
come chinge. It Is baked in the samo
way, but tho strips 01 dough should ne
ono-half an Inch tuck, ana the stlctc
hould be sot at an angle before the
Are where tho baking can proceed mora
slowly. Tan bread will bo dime in about
half an hour. In my own camps tho
leavened product was called "slick
bread." and the -uninaveued "club
bread," but nobody ever bothered his
head to discover why.
' Such aro tbo shifts and expedients to
which men aro driven rrhen cut away
from civilization, but It should not be
supposed that a meal cooked by these
nrlmltlvo methods need bo less loom
some than one prepared In a cjty
kitchen. Tho came la (rein, the ap

and who would mind a little "wood
ashes or smut of rharcoal when the
Juicy meat is dose jto a tarn?
You, may make a plato out of fla
grant bark, whittle out a spoon, or
stick a mussel shell luto a split btlck.
Then, drawing your sboath knlfo, you
attack tho meal with, a relish Such as
you never had at home.
Dlnnor over, the remnants aro tossed
.to the dog; tho broiling sticks fly ono
way and tho plate another; you drive
your knife into the ground to cleanse
it of grease, wlpo it en a leaf, and
that Is all. You can Ho back at your

THE HVLV SULTAN TREATY.
Washington, Ootober 27. The
Cabinet discussed today the agroe
ment mado between General Bates
and the Sultan of Hula. Tho
treaty with the SuIub, as tbo do
cument is commonly' called, was
taken to the White House by Se
cretary Boot. The Cabinet holds
that the arrangement with the
Sultan was justified on the ground
that it was the only thing to do
under excisiing circumstances.
It is undoubtedly the intention
of tho "Administration as soon as
the situation in Luzon justifies it,
to enforce the sovereignty of the
United States in the Sulu arohi
pelago in the same manner as it is
to be enforced in Luzon and other
islands of the Philippine group.
