Sweetbreads lequlre too great an ex

such cases, however, a tasty ami very
deceptive substitute may be found In

method of preparing them Is ns follows:
Cleanse and boll the calves' brains I'ntll

small pieces, and boll them for a few
minutes In nicely se-.isnnsed white sauce.
Snmo peas, or canned mushrooms that
have been cut into small pieces, may be
added If desired. Serve on buttered
toast, or In pattycases, garnished with
minced pnrsley. If the less costly sheep's
brains aro to be utilized, wash them care
fully, and boll them In well seasoned
stock, or gravy, until they have become
firm, but do not let them break. At this
point remove tho brains from the water,
and when they have grown quite cold,
divide the lobes', cover them with egg
and bread crumbs, nnd fry them lu but

H Is true there should be some cam

had to dress and cook them, the very
I ramy birds that are sometimes served at

long-kept birds Is too much for the or
dinary housewife. But there Is no need
of buying such gamy birds. A young
partridge Is good eating before It has.
been kept for weeks, nnd the same Is truo

Thcte Is to nil wild meat a certain
llavor that Is not found In dotmstlc
btrds. In some kinds this Is moro mark
ed than others, but In all cases It can
he reduced to a minimum If you desire,
by parboiling tlie game in water In
which you have placed a half do.en
potatoes, peeled and unaltered. Throw
the potatoes away, ns they will be too
strongly Impregnated with tho ganin
flavor to be of use.
The parboiling of game birds Is to a
certain extent a trick ot tho trade In
some restaurants that advertise to servo
at all hours of the day or evening roast
partridges, etc. In 20 minutes nfter you
give your order you will have tho part

had been previously parboiled until well
cooked, and thon hastily browned In the
ovui to meet your wants.
PAUTIUDGi: TlfNTTCIVS STYLE.
As an emergoncy dish, a partridge that
has been well parboiled Is most excel
lent. It may bo roasted a fow minutes,
as Indicated above, or It may be served
"Hunter's style,'' as Indicated ln the
menu above. When to be cooked ln tho
latter way, split the bird as for broil
ing before parboiling. Place In a stew
pan a small piece of butter, and brown
over a quick fire. Add th purtridge,
nfter parboiling, and brown well on both
sides. (You may dust It lightly with flour,
if you prefer.) Thicken tho butter left
ln the pan with two tablespoons of flour,
and then add enough of I ho liquor In
which the bird was parboiled to make the
sauco of the required consistency. Four

A0TOR TEASED INVENTOR.
Warn a Pne. Stuart Ilohson Plaited

Henry Stuart, or, as ho was better
known later ln his professional life,
Stuart Robson, was when a boy n page
In the United States rnpltol during the
time of some of our greatest statesmen
Henry Clay, Calhoun, Douglas, and
others of that eventful epoch In the his
tory of our country. Serving with him ln
the same capneity was Arthur P. Gor
man, who later was for years a distin
guished senator from Maryland.
The rules governing those youngsters
were not very strict In the rnpltol ln
those days. When they were not run
ning; errands for the members they were
usually up to some mischievous pranks.
There was at this time an old white
haired man with a long, flowing beard
who untiringly called and waited
through long, wearlsomo sessions try
ing to persuade the lawmakers to assist
him In a foolish Invention called the
telegraph. Often he spent the day wait
ing patiently, and would fall asleep.
Then, llko rats, when all Is still, out
came the pages, Robson nt their head,
and as the Inventor slept, dreaming of
wnilds to conquer, the boys would use
the pink ribbons with which the bills
nrn genersily tied and plait tho old
man's heard, adorning tho ends with
these ribbons. This added much to the
amusement nf the pages, as well as of
the Idle members of Congress when
their personal bills were not up for dis
cussion. On his awakening the old mnn seldom
was cross, but would smilingly go after
the boys with his cane.
Years afterwaid In London what .
contrasting picture greeted Stuart Rob
son, then a famous actor. He was In
troduced by the celebrated English
"brother of the boards," O'Toole. In the
center of a large drawing room his
breast, covered with decorations present
ed to him by the crowned heads of Eur
ope, stood tho same good-nntured old
man, Uonlred by every one. Robson said
he felt a bit timid as he approached tho
great Inventor, wondering If he would
use his cane as ho did In years gone by.
Tho famous Inventor came forward and
grasped his hnnd, and recalled the early
days of struggle In both tholr lives, oh
llvloim of everything and everybody pres
