Cookery Scientlfica.lly Treated.
Professor Blot, a famous authority
in culinary matters, has been giving
illustrated lectures on cookery in
Boston, where his subject ami man?
ner of treating it attracts niuch atten?
tion. He cooked on the stage the
dishes of which ho discoursed. From
a report of his third lecture, publish?
ed m the Boston I'osl, wo extract
some general observations, which will
be found interesting and useful by

The quicker brotli cools the tonger

In baking meat, no matter what
kind, alwayB put in some broth. The
top of an oven is always the warm?
est. To prevent from burning, grease
a paper with butter and put on the
top of the article baking. This will
keep the top of the meat or bread as
moist as thc bottom. The paper
prevents the steam from rising. You
need only to baste the paper occa?
sionally. Some meats require less
time to bake than others. Pork and
veal, to be healthy, should always be
Speaking of the trichinae in meat,
the Professor said that, if tho meat
is over-cooked, there was no danger
from it. Many poople have eaten
diseased meat without injury. A
whole brigade of the French army,
in 1793-and it was an historical
fact-was fed on diseased meat for
four or five months ; and at the end
of that timo the men were apparently
as healthy a? those of other brigades
who ate wholesome meat. Tho fact
of it was, the diseased moat was over?
cooked, and the men did not know
The Professor could not recom?
mend diseased meat, but the object
of referring to the subject was sim?
ply to show the importance, some?
times, of over-cooking meat.
At the close of the lecture, tho
ladies came forward to tho platform,
and with spoon tested some of the
Professor's cooking. It was evident
that they relished, as on the two pre?
vious occasions, tho result of his gas?
LINOLEUM.-A substance, is now
manufactured from flax seed called
linoleum. It is said that it will super?
sede India rubber-which it very
much resembles, and of which it
possesses mo3t of the properties-in
the various manufactures in which it
is used. Like India rubber, it can bo
dissolved into a cement and used rn
the manufacture of water-proof cloth?
ing. It can be used for the coating
of iron or wood, or for coating ship
bottoms. It is as good as common
cement, having properties similar to
the marine glue made from India
rubber and shellac;. Tt is readily vul?
canized by exposure, to beat, and by
this means becomes as hard as the
hardest wood, and capable of fine
polish. The "variety of the uses to
which it can be applied in this form,
will at once suggest themselves to
the reader. Hitherto it bas been made
solely to produce floor cloth, for
which it is well adapted. These facts
will doubtless be interesting to the
Canadian farmer, as in consequence
of this new discovery, flax-for the
successful culture of which the ?soil
and climate of Canada are so well
adapted-will probably become great?
ly enhanced in value.
EARI?Y MLLKINO.- Cows that graze
should be milked early in tho morning
and turned out to feed upon tho dewy
grass. Two honra of such feed is
worth all the rest of the day as
regards getting a good flow of milk.
