Lot mo now allude to an industry pe
culiar to the cold weather, which ex
cept in small stations distant from tho
rail, is fast dying out, and that is the
manufacture of ice. When I came out
in 1853, Calcutta, Madras and liombay
were wholly dependent on American ice,
supplied by the Tudor Ice Company,
and retailed at 2 annas the ser that is,
two pounds of ice brought from Ameri
ca were sold in India for 8 pence, or 6
cents. The mofnssil (up-country) wa.s
entirely dependent on artiliciul ice,
which could only be made where the
cold weather wa really felt; in all oth
er parts we were obliged to cool our
drinks with saltpetre amrpalammoniac,
or, during tho hot winds, by placing the
bottles before tho khiis-khus tatties, or
swinging them in a basket covered with
wet straw. Ry these appliances we
could cool our drinks to 66 degrees
Fahrenheit; or, by carrying on the cool
ing with fresh supplies of salts, we could
even freeze water. Hut the process was
tedious and exjiensive. Science came
to our aid, and sulphuric ether and am
moniac machines canto gradually into
vogtte, and latterly Carre's wonderful
pneumatic machine, which I have seen
produce ice in two minutes in atemper
ntur of 95 degrees. Willi these great
applia-ioes block ice is now available in
districts v.-here it could not formerly be
bad at fron. one and a half to two annas
jut ser. To return to the old process
it depended entirely on tho production,
of cold by evaporation, as also on suf
liciently cold weather and the presence
of dry west wind, the east wind being
absolutely fatal to the production of ice.
The essentials for tho process are: 1.
Exposed and treeless ice-lields. which
are partitioned oil' into four or five feet
squares, in which two or three inches of
straw aro laid down. 2. Myriads of
flat porous earthen saucers, six or eight
inches in diameter. 3. An unlimited
supply of water. 4. An army of cool
ies aud water-carriers. 5. 'J'lio ice pit.
This, t ho most important adjunct in tho
process, is very carefully constructed; a
great pit is dug, and in it rests a huge
timber cone, the space between it and
the sides of the pit being rammed with
charcoal, chaff or straw, as non-conductors
of heat; tho cone itself is lined
thickly with coarse felt or blankets, unil
then ahtyerof matting; over all a straw
hut, with very thick roof and walls and
a very small entrance, is constructed.
Now for the process. Whenever the
outside thermometer reads forty-two de
grees, then ice can be manufactured by
evaporation. Half an inch of water is
poured, over night, into the saucers bv
iil:',"U',g'rea't drum is beaten at tlio pit to
summon tho coolies, who assemble in
hundreds, each armed with a scoop,
with which the ice is skillfully turned
out of tho saucer into an attendant ves
sel and well rammed into it. When
full, it is taken to the nit, omiitied
there, and again rammed down. Thus
all the ico has a good chance of consoli
dating by regulation; and in a good
season thousands of pounds weight of
ico may bo stored, according to pit-room
avuilablo. Levant Ikruld.
' The Science of Cooking Beof.
A scientific writer in Mark Lane Ex
press says: "Tho flavor of the beef is
duo to the juices, and if during cooking
theso bo allowed to escape the beef loses
much of its taste. Henco, in broiling,
it should from tho outset be exposed to a
bright, quick tire, which, by causing the
Biiportioial fibres to at once contraband
tho albuminous juico near the surface
to coagulate, leads to tho plugging up
of the Htirfaeo pores, and consequent re
tention of the juices. . Similarly, in boi -ing,
beof should be plunged into al
most boiling water. On the other hand,
In making hcof tea, cold yater Is pour
cd on chopped beef and gradually heat
ed to draw tho nutriment of the beef In-,
to tho witter. 7;v-'v.-. '''':."'
Prominent among tho virtues of the
rough but not rude oooplo of the South
west, is tho grace of hospitality. They
sjinetimes forget other religious pre
cepts, but they wo "not forgetful to en
tertain strangers." Their log-cabin
latch-string generally hangs out. He
may pull it who will, and be assured of
a welcome within. Put ho must pull it
according to froutier etiquette, for in
their rude region, its in more refined
circles, custom prescribes the form of
introducing one's self to a family. A
traveler may find himself at the close of
day in a land where there is no tavern.
But any log-cabin will he his inn, pro
vided ho approaches it as tho pioneer
code of politeness ordains.
He may ride nolo the fenco that sc
aralcs the cabin from tho road, but ho
should not dismount and climb the fence
and rap at the door. Ktiqtietto demands
that he sit on his horse until asked to
get oil and come in. The following
graphic picture, reduced from one ex
hibited by a missionary of thirty years'
experience in the Southwest, shows what
tho code demands of tho would-be guest:
Sitting on my horse, says the mission
ary, describing" the method of securing a
night's lodging and board, 1 shouted,
A pack of hounds responded by bark
A group of black children rushed
out from the negro-quarters, followed
by their sable mother, with hands cov
ered with the meal of corn-dodger she
was mixing for supper.
The mistress of the farm showed her
self from the door of her cabin, stock
ingless, shoeless, dressed in home-spun
and home-made linsey-woolsey.
"Ilow'nl'y, stranger? 1iov d'v, sir?
Light, sir!" alight "light, sir!"
"I'm a stranger in these parts, mad
am," replied the traveler, remaining on
his horse. "I've ridden fifty miles and
am tired. Can I get to stay with you
"(Mi yes, if you can put up with our
rough "fare; we never turn anybody
Tho traveler, having complied with
the rule of etiquette, even to using tho
formula of asking lodging, dismounts.
"My husband will soon be at home,"
said the mistress, "to take care of your
"I will do that myself, madam," he
answered, and her little son led the way
to the stable.
On entering tho family cabin, the bare
footed mistress greeted him with a
hearty welcome, which was intensitied
as soon as she learned that her guest was
a preacher. The husband repeats the
greeting when he comes home, and all
sit down to a supper of hot corn-bread,
fried bacon, potatoes and coffee.
When it is bed-time, the preacher did
not make the mistake of a verdant mis
sionary. "Madam, I will retire, if you
please," said this new explorer of tho
"lu-tire: reioiuaia me Hostess, "we
never retires, stranger; we goes to bed."
''Madam," said the experienced
pieaciier, "l ve mklen a long distance
to-day, and am very tired."
"You can go to bed at any time you
wih, sir. Just take the left-hand bed,"
pointing tp one of the two beds stand
ing in opposite corners of tho cabin's
Her husband rose and brought out the
Bible and hymn-book. Laying them on
the table, he said to the preacher, "Will
you take tho books, sir?"
That is the Southwestern invitation to
lead the family devotions.
"Will you make a beginning, sir?" is
the formula which invites a guest to ask
a blessing at the table.
When the preacher had concluded tho
devotional exercises, he withdrew behind
the backs of his hosts they lookimr
steadily into the lire laid his garments
by, took the left-hand bed, turned his
face to the left-hand wall and slept
"I'm indebted to you for a night's en
tertainment," said t'lie preacher, in tho
morning, as ho was about leaving.
"Not at all, sir. Come to stay with
us again, whenever you pass this way."
If he had offered payment, it would
have been regarded as a retlection on
Some citizens of Chicago have char-t-red
it society simular to one which
now exists in New York for "tho pro
tection of game and lish." Wo aro glad
1 1 find this sentiment extending to tho
West. Our people have dealt with tho
lish and game supplies of these rich and
with? countries in a reckless manner.
The bull'alo, which twenty years ago
was a valuable supply of food, existing
in countless millions, lias been extin
guished. A few straggling herds have
escaped inlo the northern wilds. The
hutilers icport that game which a few
Jinw...i.i.MHvmiir'Mi' V'OflmiWO IS U-
o.nning scarce. There has been no ef
f irt to observe the laws of growth, tho
customs and habits of the animals, to
respect their seasons of reproduction.
They have been shot for tho mere pleas
ure 'of slaying.- So with lish. Tho his
t iy of "civilized countries shows that
where Providence has endowed nations
with rich, nutritious supplies of food
lish, the terrapin, oyster and lobster
peoplo have wantonly sacrificed what
would have been, with due care, an ,'n
iltiring supply of food. In Franco and
Kngland the oyster supplies which fifty
years ago were as plentiful as in Amer
ica, have been so trespassed upon that
the ovster is now a luxury. The samo
may w said of the terrapin in Chesa
peake Bay. In a few years it will bo
true of the canvasback" thick if it is not
partially true now. An ell'ort has been
made to preserve the terrapin, ami ter
rapin culture Is in many places an in
teresting and growing industry. Unless
wo watch the oyster beds around Ne
York but a low years must pass before
they will bo extinct. A great deal hits
been done by our people In the way of
preserving game aud lish by duo pro
cess of law, and public opinion tends
strongly in that direction. In the West
a reform was needed, and wo are glad
to see our Chicago friends tpkn the Mat

Keep the Best Shoep.
The flock owner who would constant
ly advanrjo tho i-t.mdard of his flock,
mast adhere to the selfish rule of look

least desirable animals, for the sham

and keen the best results of his breed

roundings aro such as to limit the num
ber of animals that can be profitably
handled, but a few years need elapse be
fore a comparatively high standard can
be attained, and this still further ad
vanced by a rigid weeding out of less
desirable members of tho flock, and
holding on to the best in spite of the
temptations of long prices for parting
with them. Many of the most success
ful breeders make it a rule to cull out
and sell a certain number of sheep each
year, supplying their places from a
choice of lambs. This not only adds to
tho flock the latest results of breeding,
but also serves to keep Its number good
from young animals, competent to with

overtake them, and from which may
