Goodies for Christmas.
'ruil Cnlic lo iiotiKliOm lliilciirr.
For fruit cako enough to"do the
family any reasonable family for
Christina and Now Ynar'a Day, theso
things arc necessary Two pounds
currants, three pounds raisinB, ono
pouud cition, ouc pound candied
orango and lutnon pcol, ouc pound
figs, ono pound almonds, two pounds
flour, one pound butter, two pounds
of tho darkest brown sugar you can
get, eightoon ctrg, ono ounco ground
cloven, ono ouncu ground cinnamon,
ono out ce allspice, two nutmegs
grated, one fourth pint ot brandy.
Prepare the fruit tho day before
This simplo command is apt to
"stump" tho oxperimenter so this is
how it's dono. First of all tumblo the
currants into a panful of topid water,
stir them around a bit and lift out
with tho hands, letting the water
drain off them as you do. Repeat
this two or three times, then spread
them on a clean tea towel, as coarso a
ono as you have, roll them up in it
and rub them well to dry them and
to get the little stems oil. Tho stems
will stick to tho towol and tho use of
two or three towels in this way will
make tho currants perfectly olean.
Spread them on a platter and set
abide until the morrow.
Stone tho laieins. This is made
easy by letting thorn stand in nearly
boiling water for a minute A small
sharp knife, a touoh of butter on the
fingers or olso a bowl of warm water
to dip them in, and tho seeds are
easily removed. Tear them in half
as you seed them.
Shred the citron quito lino and out
up the figs io small bits.
Chop tho orange and lemon peel
Blanch tho almonds and cut them
in quarters. Thoy aro blanched
pouring boiling water over them, I
ting them stand in it a few minu ot"
and then popping them out of ttos,
Tho raisitie, orange peel, citron and
almonls should be pressed down in
n dish and the brandy poured ovor
thorn then closely covor with a plate.
Tho next day, whon the mixing and
tho baking aru to bo done, set the flour
on tho oven to brown, and as it
browns remove that dark enough
and sot tho rest baok until all is a light
Thoroughly rub together tho but
ter and sugar, with a wooden eponn
until creamy. Separate tho yolks and
whites of tho eggs, beat the yolks
until light and add to tho sugar and
butter. Then add half the
flour, next the spices, stir
ring well aftor each addition. Sift
tho otbtr half of tho flour over tho
fruit and add that, putting the Ggs
and almonds in first so that thoy will
bo well distributed, thon tho citron,
chopped peel, raisins and currants
alternately, a handful of each at a
time, and stirring industriously bo
Beat tho whites of the eggs to a
light not a stiff (roth and add last.
A good idea is to save out two or
three spoonfuls of tho batter before
tho fruit goes in, to spread over tho
cakes after thoy arc in tho pans, in
order to oover tho fruit and prevent it
Heavy pans that turn out a cako
with a hole in tho middlo, or earthen
baking dishes aro good to bako them
Tho oven must bo just hot enough
turn a pieoo of manilla paper palo
rown in a minuto. It requires threo
hours to bako a fruit cake thorough-
y ana me oven must be a
"slow" ono of oven tempora
, ture. After three hours open tho
doors and leave the cakes in tho oven
for half or throe quarters of an hour
longer to coo'c.
Now lor tho crowning touch. About
a week or five days before you aro
going to out tho cakes, got a quart
bottlo of ohampagoo domestic does
very well. Puncture tho cakos with a
knitting needlo or larding needlo
through and throngh in every direc
tion and pour the wine over thorn,
turning them in it until thoy drink up
every drop. Set them away again un
til tbo day before outtingj whon thoy
can bo iced if desired.

about fifty guests, is highly spoken of.

Tho city woleomos Boyle & Son and

The strike on the San Antonio and

Two trains went out from San Anto

Major Herbert always ready for a
joke was accosted this morning by a
man wno wanted to know when the
next Aransas train would start cut.
Major Herbert said he did know but
there was a man with a telasoopo
at the corner of Fourth and Austin,
who was trying to get a ocus on the
tirst moving train, and could probably
give him tho information. This
brought down the streot, and Superin

traced to a responsible sourco.
