neither had had much experience in

sauerkraut and spare ribs. Several
friends were asked in.
The. kraut, andf ribs .were put-on the

one of tho "cooks" that she did not
know how long the combination should
cook. She aBked her sister. She
didn't know. They consulted the cook
books. Each gave this Instruction:
-"Cook until done." They were In de

that something was wrong. He asked,

GOOD WORD FOR THE OYSTER
London Lancet, Always Pessimistic,
Comes Forward With a Surly
Meed of Praise.
When the Lancet, representative of
the medical profession of Great
Britain, says anything good about any
thing, it is listened to with emotions
of mingled ' surprise and respect
Some one has remarked that every
time he picked up the Lancet he dis
covered he waB doing something right
along, or taking something that was
surely killing him. It has a good word
for the oyster Just at the time when
that apparently Innocuous edible Is
exciting the scrutiny of our always
feverish advisers, the bacteriologists.
.ThW distinguished, If usually abrmlst,
authority declares that tho oyster ia
a "tonic of the first order, and a com
plete food, most beneficial to weak
ened patients and those in whom
appetite Is deficient Clinical results
of a most favorable nature are re
ported where oysters aro given to
persons suffering from tuberculosis.
If oysters are indicated for the diet
of persons in the state described, they
must be wholesome for tho rest of us.
There was never any doubt about
this, of course, before nervous bac
teriologists sought to fill us full of
fear Instead of oysters. He was a
brave man who first ate one raw,
according to the philosopher of the
breakfast table; and now the bac
teriologists challenge our courage.
The Lancet's commendation should
help to --sustain timid souls at this
crisis. Providence Journal. '

ter times were ahead, however, and
the wonderful pictures eventually
brought Millet at least a living. He
is said to have named 'The Angelus''
In this way: A friend was looking at
it for the first time. "What do you

was the Immediate answer. "It Is
