Goodies for Ghristmas.
rriiU Unite lo DclltMil ii l'.lcurc.
For fruit oako enough lol'do the
family any reasonable family for
Christinas and Now Year's Day, these
things are necessary: Two pounds
currants, three pounds raisius, ono
pound citron, one pound candied
oranirc and lemon peel, one pound
figs, one pound almonds, two pounds
flour, one pound butter, two pounds
of tho darkest brown sugar you can
get, eighteen ceg, ono ounoo ground
cloves, ono ounce ground cinnamon,
ono out eo allspice, two nutmegs
grated, one fourth pint of brandy.
Pruparo tho fruit tho day beforo
This simple command is apt to
"stunni" tho oxperimonter so this is
how it's done. First of all tumble tho
currants into a panful oi tepid water,
stir them around a bit and lilt out
with the hands, letting the water
dram off them as you do. ltepeat
this two or throe times, then spread
them on a uleau tea towel, as coarse a
one as you havo, roll thorn up in it
and rub them well to dry them and
to ect the little storns oil. Tho stems
will stick to tho towol and tho uso of
two or three towels iu this way will
make tho currants porfeotly clean
Spread them on a plattor and set
abide until tho morrow.
Stone tho raisins. This is made
easy by letting, thorn stand in nearly
boiling water for a minute. A small
pharp knife, a touch of butter on the
fingers or olso a howl of warm water
to dip ihem in, and tho seeds arc
easily removed. Toar them in half
as you seed them.
Shred the citron quito fine and out
up the figs in small bits.
(Jhop tho orange and lemon peel
Blauoh tho almonds and cut them
in quarters. They aro blanched Dy
pouring oouinp water over mem, i
tine thorn stand in it a few minu
and then popping them out of t'e?
The raisinp, orange peel, oitron au."
almonds should be prossed down ,n
a dish and the brandy poured ovcr
thorn then closely cover with a plate.
Tho next day, when the mixing and
tho baking are to bo done, set tho flour
on tho oven to brown, and as it
browns remove that dark enough
aud Bet the rest baok until all is a light
Thoroughly rub togethor the but
ter and sugar, with a woodon spoon
until creamy. Separate tho yolks and
whites of tho eggs, beat tho yolks
until light and add to tho sugar and
butter. Then add half the
flour, next tho spioos, stir
ring well after each addition, Sift
tho other half of the flour ovcr tho
fruit and add that, putting the figs
and almonds in first so that thoy will
be well distributed, then tho citron,
chopped peel, raisins and currants
alternately, a handful of oach at a
time, and stirring industriously bo
Beat the whites of the eggs to a
light not a stiff froth and add last.
A good idea ia to save out two or
three spoonfuls of the batter beforo
tho fruit goes in, to spread over tho
cakes after they are in the pins, in
order to oovcr the fruit and prevent it
Heavy pans that turn out a cako
with a hole in tho middle, or carthon
baking dishes aro pood to bake them
Tho oven must be just hot enough
turn a piece of mamlla paper pale
rown in a minute. It lequiros three
' outs to bako a fruit cake thorough
ly and the oven must be a
"slow" ono of oven tempera
ture. After throe hours opon tho
doors and leave the cakes in the ovon
for half or throe quarters of an hour
longer to coo'c.
Now for tli2 crowning touoh. About
week or five days bofore you aro
eoing to out tho oakes, got a (juart
hottlo of champagne domostio does
very well. Puooturo tho cakes with u
knitting needle or larding needle
through and through in cvory direc
tion and pour the wine over them,
turning them in it until they drink up
ovcry drop. Set thein away again un
til tho day before cutting, when thoy
can he iced if desired.

Tho San Antonio and Aransas Pjss
strike is probably the most importai t
striko that has ever occurred on an)
railroad. It derives its importanoo
from tho fact that on no other road
has the orders of railway operatives
federated for their protection, Tho
strikers maintain that it is a tost case
and if it fails there is no uso for labor
to organize. Tho conductors, engi
neers, iircmon, brchkuun, switchmen
and telegraph oporators each have
their organization to promote their
interests, and a few months ago all of
those went into a federation to protect
any ono of them against any imposi
tion the railroad company might try to
infliot. Tho telegraphers griovanco,
based upon what they thought and
alleged to bo an imposition, was tho
first opportunity they had to test the
federation. Taking this view of it
aud one is forced to tho conclusion
that tho struggle will be tho most in
tetcsting ever known in tho history of
Tho receivers seem hopeful, and
claim that thoy will hive regular
trains running in a fow days. The
following notice appe.irs on the door
of tho station in Waco, and it is
presumed tho same is posted on all
"All parsons am hcroby notifisu tc

Approved by Reoeivers Yoakum
Tho strikers rily on tho assistance
of the labor organizations on the
other roads and they assort that not a
pound of freight from tho Aransas
Pass will be touohed by the employes
of the other roads if they scab that
road. If thoir expectations aro rea
lized tho fight will probably extend to
all the other roads and ono of the
most gigantio struggles betwoon a
railroad management and the employe
thereof will bo seon before a settle
ment is reaohed.
Receiver Yoakum, however, says
there will bo no trouble of this sort,
that the interstate commerce laws
would provont any such complications
and feels assured that if ho can got
enough men to run the trains tho
traffio will bo resumed and no furthei
annoyanoo will bo felt
The oitizenB of Yoakum hold a
meeting Saturday and expressed sym
pathy for tho strikers. Tho Printors
Union of Waco met yesterday and
passed resolutions expressing sym
pathy for the men.
Thus it seems that the fcoling is
spreading and tho end is not yet. It
will piobably be Eoveral weeks bt)foro
tho train sorvioo will be rosumod on
tho Waoo branch and it will probably
bo weeks before freight will bo mov
ed on any part of the lino.
It is reported that the Federating
board with headquarters at Yoakum
will send, ex commeroial agents and
local agents tu commeroial centers to
divert all freight from the San Anto
nio and Aransas Pass road.
