NEW YORK LETTER
New York, Feb. 7. One sees
so many interesting things if one
merely looks about a bit, in the
For instance, there was the lit
tle white woolly dog who sat all
by himself in a handsome car
riage, in front of a Fifth avenue
store. There were a coachman
. and a footman on the front seat.
The little doggie had on a well
tailored green broadcloth coat,
with braid trimming, and from a
cute little pocket of the cute lit

Clams Au Gratin,
Chop all of the hard parts of
uncooked clams and to each cup
of clams add one cup of bread
crumbs and a dessertspoon of
chopped onion, a small teaspoon
of taragon and sage, a tablespoon
of chopped celery.
