3 SOUTHERN STANDARD McMli jN VILLE, TENNESSEE. SATURDAY, JAN i89i.
A MOONLIGHT 1WOQY HIDE.
What greater bib is there than this
To ride when the mono doth shine,
When the horses prance, and the young
girl's eyes dunce,
And the air i like new wine.
O'er a level road that's smooth and broad,
And not a soul in sight,
When the night is cold, but your warm
And to sit quite close all right?
Dear heart alivel a man can drive
With one hand as well as two,
For the other hand you understand .
Has something else to do.
The wind is chill, you (ear it will
Do your tweet girl Borne harm;
Her furs and mufl'are cot enough
She needs a stalwart arm!
The horses know how fast to go
They lightly skim the ground;
Their well sliod feet with rhythmio beat
Bring out a cherry souud.
The frosty air brings roses rare
Into your sweetheart's cheeks;
Its saucy uips redden her lips
As merry words she speaks.
The air makes free, and so may he;
Nay, lips were made to kiss:
A feigned complaint, objections faint
The best of tne ride is this!
On a pleasaut night, wheu your team
And the right one at your side,
What can there be more gay and free
Than a mooulight buggy ride?
Bain Induced by Trees.
W. T. Foster in Nashville Banner.
Wo tire now approaching tree
planting time, and I want to say
something about the influence of
trees on the climate. The theory
that the rain belt is moving west on
account of the cultivation of the soil
is a theory full of mischief. It has
ruined thousands by leading them to
locate in Western Kansas an J Ne
braska. The drouth , of last summer
proves that the westward movement
of the rain belt is not permanent and
people who want to live in those
otherwise beautiful and rich coun
tries must learn to kuow that tree
planting alone will bring abundant
rainfall to those arid and elevated
regions. Last year our atmosphere
was condensed by planetary influ
ences till it was not sufliciently dense
and deep to float the rain clouds to
these western elevated lands 1,000
feet above sea level. The time will
come when the drouth influences
will be greater than they were last
year, and the drouth will be as severe
as it ever was unless millions of trees
are planted and properly cared for.
Trees are conductors of electric cur
rents, which, streaming to and from
them in the earth and air, conduct
veins of water to them in the earth
as they carry blood through the hu
man system, and above the trees
these currents form a low barometer
low barometers are caused by or
ganized bodies of electricity and
these draw the moisture to them
through the atmosphere, causing
rainfall where it would not other
The history of all the past goes to
prove the correctness of the theory
that trees will increase rainfall, and
establishes the fact that cultivation
of ordinary crops brings drouth. In
my mind there is no doubt that in
prehistoric times the great Sahara
was extensively cultivated. The
suites of the ancient capitals of Egypt
are away out in the desert, and in
places near the centre of that desola
tion are found the remnants of an
cient forests. Fifty years ago the
authorities of Egypt planted millions
of trees, and as these trees grow the
rainfall increases. It is the opinion
of the best informed that the great
Egyptian desert was caused by de
stroying the trees, and that it might
be reclaimed by the extensive plant
ing of tree3 and the artesian wells.
Five hundred years ago Spain was a
desert and its historians declare that
this was caused by destroying the
trees. The Government originated a
forest commission and planted trees
by the million, and as these trees
grew the rains gradually came back
to that desert country and its fertil
ity was renewed. Switzerland has
had about the same experience as
well as most of the States of Europe.

USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE.
Brown Bread Toast Cut stale brown
bread into slicos and toast, taking care
not to scorch it Butter rather liberally,
and serve hot
Vessels in which milk is kept should
be cleansed first with cold, and not with
scalding hot water, as most people aro
accustomed to wash tbem.
Corn Muffins. One egg, one table
spoonful meltod butter, a littlo salt, ono
pint of sour milk, one-halt teaspoonful
of soda and one pint of cornmoal well
beaten togother. N. Y. World.
A nice way to serve mashed pota
toes is to pass them through a siove, al
lowing the potato to fall In flake-like
form into the dish in which it is served.
This makes it very light and palatable.
It Is sometimes called potato snow.
Swiss Pudding. Cover the bottom of
a pudding-dish with grated bread
crumbs, then sliced apples, alternating
until the dish is full. Make a custard
of four eggs, a quartof milk, one-half
cupful of sugar, salt and spice, and
bake. Good Housekeeping.
English Relish. Put bread crumbs

Glazed Onions. Peel carefully some
good Spanish onions as nearly of a size
as may be, butter a saucepan, and lay
in the onions, heads down, with a couple
of lumps of sugar and enough good
stock rcarly to cover the onions; set it
'over a brisk fire till the stock is reduced
nearly to balf, then draw the pan to the
side of the flro, and lot it cook slowly
till the stock almost jellies on the on
ions. One Egg Cake. This recipe may be
useful this winter whon eggs become
scarce. It is given by a correspondent
of an exchango. One cupful butter, one
and a half cupfuls of sugar, three of
flour, one of sweet milk, one egg, two
teaspoonfuls baking powder, sifted in
the flour; one cupful raisins, cut fine and
stirred in the flour. This is my favor

Pumpkin Pie. One cupful of cooked
pumpkin, three-quarters of a cupful of
sugar, one egg, one teaspoonful of gin
ger, a pinch of salt a litfle grated nut
meg, one cupful of milk. This quantity
will make one deep, large pie. or two of
medium size. Another receipt richer,
and for throe or four pies, according to
size, is as follows: One quart of stewed
pumpkin, six eggs, two quarts of milk,
one teaspoonful of mace, one of cinna
mon, the same of nutmeg, and one and a
half cupfuls of sugar. Beat the eggs
light and whip in the sugar, then the
pumpkin, first rubbed through a fine
colander, then add the spico, and lastly
mix in the milk. Bake in open shells
of paste. Serve cold, with cheese.
C H EAP RESTAURANTS.
lled-Kock Charge Undoubtedly Reached
In the German Capital.
The cheapest restaurantsln the world
aro undoubtedly in Berlin.
Tho effort to introduce horse-flesh in
Now York as an article of food has
brought all the facts concerning the
Berlin restaurants promptly to the
front. Thore are dozens of places there
where the moat of horses is oaten regu
larly, and they are indorsed by the
health authorities of the German cap
These restaurants furnish a meal of
horse meat bread and coffee for the
moderate sum of six cents.
This would seem to bo the bed-rock
charge for a meal even in Berlin, but
there is still a lower grado of restaurant.
cry few tourists visit the restaurants
on the outskirts and building districts
of the city where the very poorest Ger
mans buy their meals.
In those places there is a long bench
placed in front of a table, in which soup
plates made of tin are sunk into the
wood. The plates will hold a little
more than a pint of liquid. Opposite
each plato or pan is a tin spoon chained
to tho table.
The prospective diner enters the res
taurant, places three cents opposite his
plate and then shouts "thick soup" or
"thin soup," according to his epicurean
desire. Then the comfortable and in
variably very fat old woman who runs
tho restaurant waddles forward with a
steaming kettle in her hand, fills the
pan in front of the diner with soup,
seizes his money, waddles back to the
stove and then returning slams a large
and square lump of black bread down in
front of tho guest
The description is not alluring, but in
reality every thing about these cheap
restaurants is so oxquisitively bright
and clean, the soup is so good and the
bread is so nutritious that no one need
bo afraid of it Such places in the poorer
districts of London and New York at
the prices would be a blessing during
the winter months. N. Y. World.
