as a Table Saute. Tho Worcestershire is hot and
sweet, and its gnramy flavor is to many objectionable.
It is a hot bnt good Clnb Sauce. The Halford Ibices
tershiro does not contain so much cayenne, is not of a
sickening sweetness, is not flavored save by its own fine
material, and is intended expressly tor uniform oe
necessity, an economy, and a luxnry. - There are atwajs
a great many cheap articles foisted npon the market
by certain parties, under different names, most of them
of a fancy character. There are combinations of com

cheap restaurants, and sometimes retailed in Shona.
But if at any first-class Hotel the Hallord Leicester

to be sure, who would have bad Sauce on their table
have not done so because of the great cost of the im-l-orted
