NEW YORK ICE CREAM

In tin American who reside In Paris
and Its vicinity ."cvcral months u year.
A recent order Is fur 1,000 Rations of vu
iillln, peach and strnwlierry llavor.i to
I'p served nt a wedding breakfast In
Paris. The cream Ih packed In steel
cylinder. heavily plated with sliver on
the Instill! and nlcltclled on the exterior.
While this province of export trade
comes to u small figure In comparison
with staple products.. It Is rapidly ex
panding and Koes on every month In
the year. The demands were until lately
I'onllncd lo Americans, but of late the
rich members of the. colonies of South
Americans, Turks, Spaniards, Persians
and former occupants of high places In
the olllclal and commercial life of the
Knst Indies who nre living In luxury In
Paris nnd Its vicinity nr buying Ameri
can Ice croam, fancy confections, can
dled nnd preserved fruits, oysters, lob
sters, orannes, lemons, plums and tho
highest grades of especially made to or
der American cigars nnd cigarette.
The factor of cost does not enter Into
the consideration of any of these con
sumers. Ocean and railway charges on
domestic len cream to Paris are so high
ns to make the final cot something
more thnn doubln the New York city
price for the best makes.
Two lines of express passenger ships
plying between here and Kurope buy
from local Ice cream makers milllclent
cream of half a dor.cn tlnvors to serve
during each round trip. Ice cream,
water Ices and Human punch are Ital
ian Inventions that have not become
In large demand r. ay where In Franco or
Great llrltaln. liven In P.onie, where Ice
cream and Roman punch came Into use
among the rich as far back as 00 years
ago, both dishes almost went out of use
in recent years, and wore revived only
a few years ago by a daughter of Itlshnp
Klllot of (leorgl.i, who became the wife
of on olltcer ot tho Papal Guard at the
She, noting the wilting effect of a
lung spoil of hot wenther on the Pope,
l.co XIII. . made for him with her own
hands for n long time Ice cream, water
Ices nnd Koman punch from recipes
us I In her girlhood home. The Pope's
Kief physician became so fully con
vnci' 1 of the food alue of the ice cream
nd American grnhnm Hour bread sent
i ally 111 the Pope at noon that he gavtf
tinier that the Pojie's Junchcon should
bp a dish of the cream nnd two slices
of graham bread with butter whenever
tho noonday temperature exceeded !0
1 purees Fahrenheit.
The results were so beneficial to the
Pope that Intelligence thereof got about
In the court nnd other circles of thigh
society of Italy, and tho luncheon of
wholesome Ice cream with graham, rye
or barley bread became ultra fashion
able In very hot weather.
First class Ice cream, such as can be
had In abundance and at a small price
all over our country twelve months In
tho year, cannot be had even In the
most fashionable restaurants or clubs
In France. This Is due to several
causes. In the first place, France ranks
almost nt the bottom ns to dairy prod
ucts. Nine-tenths of the farms of the
republic nre small holdings owned by
an Ignorant nnd unprogressive class of
men nnd w;omen, too mean to make
dairy farming what It is In the Scan
dinavian countries, Holland and Ilel
glum. Pari hns of nil tho world's Vap
Itals the poorest servlco of cream and
None of the railways possesses any
thing comparable with the high veloc
ity milk service trains which en
nble the people of nil large American
cities to have early every morning all
the milk nnd cream they want, and at
very low prices, as compared with those
which rule In the large cities of Eu
rope, Th laws of France against un
healthy cattle nnd unwholesome cream
nnd milk nre severe, but they are slow
In operation, and ns tho nvernge French
officeholder does about na much work
In a month ns an American officeholder
performs In n day, ho Is rarely a deter
rent agent as to offences against the
jiurn food or sanitary laws.
Nearly all of tho potable water of
T"ranc Is high In alkaline matter, and
this explains why French milk, cream
nnd butter compnro so unfavorably
w'!h tho same, products produced In
America, Scandinavia, Holland, Great
llrltaln nnd Ireland. Most of the French
domestic eggs nre from rundown stock,
small In size nnd very low ns to quality.
Ice Is very dear In France, only nbout
2 per cent, of the French families re
siding where summer Is hot uso len In
any way. A French family buying Ice
In months other than July nnd August
would be accounted by Its neighbors as
htark mad. In all the cities and large
towns of Franco even the well to do
buy cooked and uncooked food In hand
to mouth quantities nt shops.
Less than 1 per cent, of the bread,
rolls nnd pastry consumed In French
homes Is home made. Hundreds pt
kitchen conveniences In uso In this
country for many years are unsnlable
In France, because the people have not
0 notion of what they nro intended for.
Vhc French dt most of their cooking
ii copper vessels, snld to be tin lined,
but which are lined with a mlxturo of
tin and lead. This accounts for the
extraordinary number of cases of verdi
gris nnd lend poisoning In France.
With iwor milk, cream nnd eggs, antl
omited ice cream freezers, of patterns
obsolete In this, country since 1850, and
uiUi very dear Ice, nnd lack of delivery
wagons, the few nmnll confectioners of
France cannot mnko prlmo Ice cream
that will satisfy Americans. Rven
among the few confectioners of Paris
who make special efforts to draw trade
from Americans, low grade lard Is used
o make a body to their len cream, and
tw v inn tonka Instend of vanilla beans
in the so-called vanilla Ico cream, nnd
chemicals Instend of fruit extracts to
produce, other flavors'.
Trade unionism N so powerful among
the cooks of France that no bluo ribbon
thttf will condescend to nllow an lco
crenm maker to enter the kitchen of
which he Is the ruler, nor will ho allow
nny kinds of the hot rolls and biscuits
liked by Americans to be made In the
kitchen. Much that enters the kitchens
of the rich Americans and others In
France Is already cooked or partly
cooked, nnd on these foods and all
else Hint comes In commissions aro
paid by tho venders to the bead cook,
who, In turn, passes fractions down the
line, until even tho scullory maid has
a small rnkeoff on all that comes In, and
likewise on tho kitchen refuse, sold to
The ever growing demand upon the
local trade for Ice crenm, rich cakes
and many other Amerlcnn delicacies
by rich citizens possessing residences
In Paris and London Is due In great
Part to thn revolution against the
tyranny of French und English house
servants In Paris and London that Is
being quietly waged by the bright nnd
well educated Aineilcan women who
head these households. Most of these
women are graduates from American
schools that tench tV arts of the
household, especially tho clean and
wholesotiip system of American cookery
ns developed within a few years In
thousands of colleges and private and
public schools. '
To such women the chattering of
French chefs about cookery Is regarded
as like tin- cawing of crows, and Hint
Is why so many French chefs nnd their
usslstnnts have been discharged from
service to well to do Americans who
possess homes In Furope nnd Amerlcnn
trained cooks und assistants put Into
the places. The best of these are men
trained on North Atlantic passenger
ships nnd on American coastwise and
lake and river passenger steamships.
These men know how to make the
choice dishes of all countries, nnd they
excel In making pastry, candles. Ice
cream nnd water Ices from recipes
originated by the good livers of the
North, South, Knst and West of tho
A New York caterer who does a big
business In shipping Ice crenm, fancy
cakes nnd confectionery to rich Ameri
cans In Kurope says that the trade was
originally set Into being by officers of
the navy nt their repetitions on ship
board In foreign waters. The recep
tions cost Hip olllcers much more than
they can afford to, spend, but they uro
of great Indirect value In building up
foreign demands for certnln American
dishes that cannot be properly made
without the use of certain American In
gredients nnd cooking and serving
utensils and appliances.
A view identical with the foregoing Is
held by the head of a greut candy mak
ing company which to-day has 6,000
foreign ngencles In ports visited by our
warships. None of those ngents has
been In this country, nobody connected
with this local industry has been
abroad to see thpse ngpnts. Thp trnde
came through the fact that for a num
ber of years Hip young ottlcers of the
nnvy in outfitting for foreign voyages
have taken nlong some boxes of very
fine domestic candy ns gifts to young
women coming on board nt the recep
tions. The young women would nfter
ward gu to their local confectioners
nnd call for the American candles by
the names of the makers. As some of
the foreign confectioners possessed the
business acumen to give customers what
they wanted, they ordered the goods In
this country, an-i In that way a largp
trade has bepn developed In all port
ubcoad that nre visited by our warships.

A stoy Is told of old New York nnd ofj

years into a very well dressed man with
a courteous address was wont to walk up

Whenever he met a stranger who looked
hopeful to him he would approach the
man and with the most delightfully frank
manner ho would ask:

A terror to evildoers was ltn real orig
inal niack Maria, anil qulto hi useful In
htlpliig to keep the jhmicc hs the black
Murla of to-day. Illack Mail.t lived in
Boston and In Colonial tlme. Hhc was a
KlKflntlc negrciis, named Marl.'i I-ee, and
Him was mistress ot a sailors boarding
Iiousk down near the wharves.
Hnllora cam to her from all over the
world, They were often awlld, rough pet,
but they never gave Maria any trouble,
for her hugn slzn was well balanced by
her prodigious strength. It la told that
rlie, oner brought three drunken nnllorn at
once to the lockup when they had grown
too obstreperous to be kept longer In the
The fame of Maria's strength grew, so
that she became of great assistance to tho
authorities for when men got to bo vio
lent or quarrulHomo Illack Maria waH
pent for and soon reduced the unruly to
obedience, In time, her reputation spread
all over Boston, nnd the lawless element
grew so afraid of her that often the
threat ot sending for Illack Maria was
enough to quell tho worst cases of Insubor
dination. Hew people know of niack Maria l.ee
as tho boarding Iiouho keeper of Culonlal
daya, but sho handed her name down as a
menace to the vlcloua of future genera
tions, In tho modern JoJI wagon. To "send
for thn black marl a" Is as much .it a
threat now as It was In Maria Lee's times.

Bread making without kneading seems
tomowhat of h novelty, but thin recipe Is
oicr fifty years old and comv 'rom the
housekeeping book of an uld liidy who uas
a noted cook. The recipe Is railed "Aunt
Vary's Bread" and runs as follows:
Tnkn one quart of milk and water, half
of each (blood warm two tablespoon
fills of granulated sugar, one tablespoon
fill each of butter mul sweet pure lard,
cr.D-lialf teuRpoonful of salt, ony cake of
compessed yeast and enough twlco sifted
ilour to make a soft smooth iiuiigh,
Hub tho butter and lard into the floii",
Hilt In the sugar and salt. Dissolve the
yeast In a little water from tn one quart
oio add. Begin with a uinall amount of
(lour, and mixing with a spoon, and beat
ing thoroughly, gradually add more flour,
until It Is dry enough Just not to stick to
the pan. Do not touch It wlfti your
It'indx. When dry enough, set It to rise In
a warm place.
The next morning, or when it Is suffi
cient!) risen, take It up on nur floured
hands, touching lightly nnd gently Just
enotigl tn mould It Into InavcH, mil put It
In pans tn rise again from about fifteen
minutes to halt an hour- When It beglnn
to hlltter put Into a moderate oven.
This will make two medium size loaves
that will cut an smooth as cake. If It
browns too inpldly, paver with paper, te
prttent the crust fiom getting tough.
