A man's theory of cooking consists in
'stirring up something' and baking it until
it is done; carried into practice it would
be worse than the French 'olla podrida,"
wherein 'a little of any thing'you have got
is put into a pot half full of water, boiled
an hour, seasoned with salt and.pepper,
and served up hot;' or on a festival-day it
might amount to the Spanish recipe for
the same dish:v 'Take a little of every
thing you have got, boil it hard for an
hour, season it to your taste, and garnish
it with parsley.' There is little ronance
about a kitchen fire-place. ThEabeauti.
ful theory of living upon the fruits of-the
earth is charming to the young maiddn on
the eve of matrimony anid house keeping.
She will regale herself and her husband
on apples, peaches and pears for break
fast. She will never become a drudge in
her own house-not she! No doubt but a
turnip field and a good well of water would
sustain life; but we opine that our lord of
creation would find his way toa cook-shop
and our lady fair seek for consolation

could always find it in her timesof afllic.
tion; in eating hum and sausages. Yet,
afler all, there is a satisfaction in having
'got tip one's victuals' nicely, apart from
the mere eating of them. A trille, a stick
of green wood, a falling of littlo soot from
the chimney, a graina of'salt or pepper too
much or too little, and dIUs for the dinner!
Or If the house-keeper has done it bv
means of her independent proxy,'viz: lielp,
then the trifle of a soft or hard word, and
the whole family circle must be hapA'y or
unhappy. Happy it is, and she rejoiBes
over her dinner, and feels thankful when
it is over. How Madam Nature (a pretty
good world-keeper we think) hung din

up bubbling springs of good hot moui.,-and
made turkeys to run about roasted and
chickens to issue fricasseed from the white
houses of their infancy, we doubt whether
man or woman-kind would have been as

'To-morrowv I'll kill my fat pig,
For l'm sure he'll make illigant mutton;
So then he goes into a hovel.
- And hangs the pig up by the heel,
Cuts his throat so nate with the shovel,
And cries, 'this is the way to dress veal!'
And did not the cobbler's wife bustle

a long voyag on the rail road. But what'

When I was down South last fall, t had
as retty fair specimen of a stage ride from
Wareaton to Millodgeville, in Georgia.
The road wasn't the best in the world, and
didn't run through the most interest part
of thie Sate, but we'd a good team, a good
stage, and a first rate driver, and the com
pany jsst about as good a one as could be
jumped up for sich a occasion. Ther
was nine of us, beiesid the driver, and I
don't believe ther ever was a crowd of"
the same number that presented a greater
variety of character. Ther was a old
gentleman in black, with big round spec
tacles and a gold headed cane, a dandy
gambler, w;th more gold chains about him
than would hang him, a old Flardshell
preacher, as they call 'en out in Georgia,
with the biggest mouth and the ugliest
teetn I ever seed, a circus clown, whose
breath smelled strong enuff of licker to
upset the stage, a cross old maid, as ugly
as a tar. bucket, a butiful young lady with
a pair of the prettyrst bright eyes, a drov
er from Indiany, what was gwine t'o New
Orlenas to git a army contract for beef,
For a while nobody didn't 'iave much
to say. The young lady put her green
veil over her face and leaned her head
back in the corner; the old maid sot up
str'ai, and looked as sharp as a steel trap;

gambler went to sleep; the preacher look.
ed solemn, and the hoosier stuck his lied
out of the winder to look at the cattle
what we passcd evry now and then.
"This aint no great stock country," ses
he to the old gentleman with the cane.
"No, "sir," ses the old gentleman.
'Tbgr's very little grazing here, and the
range is pretty much wore out."
Then ther was nothing ted agin for
some time. Bimeby the hosieropne
"It's the d-.st place for simmon.
trees and turkey-huzzards I ever did see!"~
The old gentleman with the cane didn't
say nothing. end the preacher gave a
lonag groan. The young lady smiled
through her veil, and the old maud snap.
perl her eyes anid looked sideways at the

"No," ses the old gentleman.

they all manage to git along in a country
whar they ain't no ranges, and they don't
make no beef. A man ain't considered
worth a cuss in Indhiany wvhat has't got
his brand on a hundred lhed."
"Yours is a great beef country, I be

"Well, Sir it, ain't nothing else. A

waj.ed up as lie wvent along, begun to
