For fruit cake enough to);do the
family anv rcssoiiBblo family for
Christmas and Now YoarV Day, thoso
things aro necessary: 1 wo pounds
currant?, three pounds raisins, ono
pound cition, ono pound candied
orange and lemon pool, one pound
figs, ono pound almonds, two pounds
flour, one pound butter, two pounds
of the darkest brown sugar you can
get, cightoen eeg, one ounoo ground
clovos, ono ouooe ground cinnamon,
ono out co allspice, two nutmegs
grated, one fourth pint of brandy.
Prepare the fruit tho day before
This simple command is apt to
"stump" tho experimenter so this is
how it's dono. First of all tumblo the
currants into a panful of topid water,
utir them around a bit and lift out
with tho hands, letting the water
drain off them as you do. Ropeat
this two .or threo times, then spread
them on a clean tea towol. 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 the uso of
two or threo towels in this way will
make tho currants pocfeotly clem.
Spread them on- a platter and sot
abido until the morrow.
Stone t'10 raisins. This is made
easy by lctMni tboiu staud in nearly
boiling water for u ntinuto. A small
sharp knife, a touch of butter on tho
lingers or olso a bowl of warm water
to dip them in, and tho Boeds arc
easily removed. Tear them in hulf
kh you seed them.
Shred the citron quito fino and cut
up the figs in small bits.
Chop tho orango and loraon peel
Blanch tho almonds and cut them
in quarters. Thoy aro blanched by
pouring boding water over them, lot
ting them stand in it a few minutes,
and then popping them out of their
Tho raisine, orange peel, citron and
almonds should be pressed down in
a dish and the brandy poured over
thorn then closely cover with a plate.
Tho next day, when tho mixing and
tho baking aro to bo done, sot the flour
on tho oven to brown, and as it
browns remove that dark enough
and set tho rest back until all is a light
Thoroughly rub together tho but
ter and sugar, with a wooden spoon
until creamy. Separate tho yolks and
whites of tho eggs, beat tho yolks
until light and add to the Bugar and
butter. Then add half the
flour, next the spices, stir
ring well aftor oaoh addition. Sift
tho other half of tho flour over tho
fruit and add that, putting the figs
nnd almonds in first bo that they will
bo well distributed, then tho citron,
ohopped peel, raisins and currants
alternately, a haudful of each at a
time, and stirring industriously be
Boat the whitos of the eggs to a
light not a stiff troth and add last.
A good idea is to sayo out two or
three spoonfuls of the batter before
the fruit goes in, to spread over tbo
cakes after thoy aro iu tho pans, in
order to cover the fruit and prevent it
Heavy pans that turn out a cako
with a holo in tho middle, or carthoo
baking dishes are good to bako them
Tho oven must uo just hot onough
to turn a picco of manilla paper pale
brown in a minute. It requires three
hours to bako a fruit cako thorough
ly and the oven must be a
"slow" ono of oven tempora
ture. After three hours open tho
doors and loavo tho cakes in tho ovon
for half or threo quartors of an hour
longer to ooo'c.
Now for the crowning touch. About
a week or five days before yeu aro
going lo out tho cakes, get a quart
bottle of ohampagno domestio does
very well. Punoturo tho oakos with a
knitting needlo or larding needle
through and through in every direc
tion and pour the wino over them,
turning them in it until thoy drink up
every drop. Set them away again un
til tho day before outting, when thoy
can bo iced if desired.

A BRUTAL MURDEfc.
An Old Ijldy Mlllilcri'il anil Her llnlhnnd
Atlanta, .Tan. 0. A horrible murder
is reported from near Griflin. Dr. and
Mrs. J. 1L M. Barrett, an aged couple,
were found Sunday night in their home
horribly mutilated. Tho woman was
dead and tho doctor was so badly hurt
that there is scarcely a possibility of his
recovery. Dr. Barrett is a prosperous
old physician who has lived for years at
Knllulah Junction, the crossing of two
railroads. With thorn has lived :i grand
son, Will Nunally. Sunday night about
0 o'clock Nunally rushed into tho homo
of tho nearest neighbor and said that his
grandparents had been killed. The male
members of the household at onco ac
companied Nunally to the homo of his
Thero they found that both had been
assaulted with ii frieght car coupling-pin.
The weapon was found not far from tho
bodies of the aged couplo. Nunally, tho
grandson, said that ho came homo be
tween 8 and 9 o'clock, and was startled
whilo several feet from the residence by
tho sound of a groan from tho house. Tho
dwelling was entirely dark. He entered
and struck n light. Going into the sitting-room
he found his grandparents
lying almost dead upon tho door. Ho
bent over them nnd tried to arouse them.
This being unsuccessf id ho ran to the
neighbors for assistance. Tho alarm was
spread nnd early Tuesday morning tho
neighbors flocked to tho scone.
Officers went out from Griffin and the
country is being f-coured by men and
bloodhounds. Thero is no doubt that
robbery was tho motive. Dr. Barrett is
supposed to have had a good deal of
money and valuables in his house. Some
negroes were seen near the house a short
time beforo the discovery, and if they
aro found a lynching is suro to follow.

Since tho last adjustment of lumber
rates hv tho railroud commission of
Texas, tho complaints from tho lum
bermen of East Texas have been
somewhat modified, hut they aro Btill
very serious and continued.
It is said by them that through
yours of continued labor and expense,
they havo built up a market on their
lumber in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado
and other states and that tho present
rate fixed by tho commission, and io
which inter commerce rates aro con
formed, havo shut them out from
thojo markets, whilo through tho ad
vantage in rates, tho mills of North
east Texas and of Arkansas have tho
bonefit of those markets.
It is not to bo dcoied that
largo investments havo been mado,
and larce interests built upon tho
faith of an existing policy as to rate,
it is an injustice on tho part of the
state, through any of its departments,
to so revolutionize its polioy as to
seriously impair such investments and
intoiests, and it is very much akin
to deprivation of property without
due process of law. Tbo Post does
not undortako to say definitoly as to
what extent of morit thoro is to bo
found in tho complaints, but it does
say that tho railroad com
mission has, over and
aga'.n, declared that its
purposo and intent is to do justice to
all interesis in tho state and that it
will not knowingly cause injury to any.
Now, then, if the lumbermen of East
Texas are Buffering from tho oauees
stated they should appeal again to tho
commiasion should go beforo it
showing tho effect of tho rates upon
thoir business end the results so
far to them. The commission
is a part of the state govern
inont. It is organized for the purposo
of correcting abuses and for pro
tecting, as well a6 regulating, inter
ests that poiuo within tho purview of
the law under which it was organized.
If tho oomplaints made are just the
lumbermen should be able to make
them plain to the commission; thoy
should bos igo tho commission with
reasons to show tho justice of their
complaints and they phould camp
with them and stay by them day
in and day out, until they get relief,
if they aro ontitled to it.
That is what tho railroad commis
sion is hero for. Houston Post.
