THE TOOTHSOME LOBSTER.
Many Delicious Dishes That May Be
Prepared Wlthont Trouble.
Lobsters are more easily prepared for the
teblfr than young housewives Imagine, and
many delicious dUhes may be made with
Should ready-boiled lobsters be purchased,
test them by gently drawing back the tall,
which should rebound with a spring. If the
tail is not curled up and will not spring back
when straightened, the lobster was dead when
boiled, and should not be eaten. Choose the
smallest lobsters that are heavy for their
size, as the larger ones are apt to be coarse
and tough. Lobsters weighing from one and
one-half to three pounds are the best In size.
All the parts of the lobster are wholesome
and may be used except the stomach, which
ls a small hard sack and contains poisonuos
matter, and lies directely under the head, and
a little vein which runs the entire length of
To boil a lobster, put Into a kettle water
enough to cover the lobster. When the water
is hot, but not boiling, but in the live lob
ster, head first. In this way the lobster will
be instantly smothered to death. Put a ta
blespoonful of salt into the water, cover the
kettle and boil a medium-sited lobster thirty
minutes. Cooking too leng will make the
meat tough and dry. When the lobster be
comes cold, twist off the claws and break
apart the tail and body, take out- the green
fatty part, which is the liver of the lobster,
and coral and lay them one side to use with
the meat. Remove the stomach, which is be
low the head, and throw it away. Break open
the body and take out all the small pieces of
meat. Cut the under side of the tail shell
open and loosen the meat, taking it out in
one piece. Open the meat and remove the
little vein and throw it away. In cracking the
claws hold them on the edge of the table. By
doing so the shell will be cracked and the
meat will not be crushed. Save the small
claws to garnish with.
A delicious dish is creamed lobster. Take
two lobsters weighing two and one-half
pounds each, or about five pounds of lobster
for one pint of cream. Remove the meat
from the shell and cut it into half-inch pieces,
put the pint of cream In a double boiler and
place over the fire. Mix two tablespoonfuls
of butter with two of flour, and season highly
with salt and Cayenne pepper. Moisten with
a little cold milk, and when the cream is
boiling stir this mixture into it and cook
five minutes. Then add the cut lobster meat,
and when it is thoroughly sttrred In, turn
the mixture into a buttered pudding dish.
Cover tbe top with line bread crumbs and
bake in a hot oven twenty minutes. The lob
ster mixture may be baked in individual
shells, and, so served, makes a very nice
course for a luncheon or dinner. If th*
small dishes are used, ten minutes is long
enough to bake.
To make lobster chops cut Into tiny pieces
half a puund of boiled lobster nieat. Put
over the fire In a saucepan two ounces of but
ter, and when it bubbles stir in one table
spoonful of flour. Let the flour cook a few
moments, taking care that it does not brown.
Then gradually stir in half a pint of cream
or rich milk, and last add tbe prepared lob
ster meat. Remove from the fire and stir in
the beaten yolks of three eggs, one table
spoonful of finely chopped parsley, a tea
spoonful of salt, and a pinch of Cayenne
pepper. Return the saucepan to the fire
and stir long enough to set the eggs. Pour
the mixture Into a shallow buttered dish to
cool. When cold form into chops with a
mold, or they may be molded with the hands,
Cover them with beaten egg and then with
fine crumbs, and fry them In boiling lard.
Put a small claw into the pointed end of
each chop. Garnish the platter with sliced
lemon and parsley, and serve a Bechamel
sauce with the chops. To make the sauce,
rub three large tablespoonfuls of butter and
three level spoonfuls of flour to a smooth
paste; gradually stir Into this two cups of
white stock, add one bay leaf, some parsley,
a dozen pepper corns, a small piece of mace,
one onion cut in quarters, two slices of car
rot, and a saltspoonful of salt. Put all the
Ingredients Into a saucepan; cover it and let
them simmer thirty minutes, stirring fre
quently. At the end of that time stir in one
cup of cream and let it boll up once. Strain
through a coarse sieve and it Is ready to
For deviled lobster baked in the shell use
two lobsters, each weighing about two and
one-half pounds. Be careful in opening the
lobster not to break the body or tail shells.
Remove the meat and wash and dry the
shells. With a sharp pair of scissors trim
out the inside shell of the tail piece and fit
it to the body shell. Cut the meat into small
pieces, using a silver knife. Put two cups of
cream over the flre In a double boiler. Mix
together two tablespoonfuls of butter, the
same quantity of flour, one level tablespoen
ful of mustard, and a dash of cayenne pep
per. Stir into this three tablespoonfuls of
the boiling cream and then stir the mixture
into the remaining boiling cream and cook
five minutes. Add the prepared lobster
and salt to suit the taste and remove from
the flre. Put the mixture into the lobster
shells, cover the top with fine bT_id crumbs,
and scatter tiny bits of butter over them.
Place the filled shells in a pan, putting some
thing on each side to hold them In position,
and bake In a hot oven long enough te brown
the crumbs. Serve them on a fish platter,
having the bodies in the center and the tails
coming towards each end of the platter, and
garnish with quarters of lemon and parsley.
A simple but very nice dish is breaded lob
ster. Split the meat of the tails and claws
and season the pieces well with salt and pep
per. Dip them in beaten egg and then in
bread crumbs, allow it to dry on the lobster,
and then dip them in egg and crumbs again.
Fry them in boiling fat to a delicate brown
color. Pile them in the center of a heated
platter and arrange a wreath of parsley or
cresses around them and serve with tartare
sauce. To make the sauce, beat the yelks of
two eggs with one tablespoonful of dry mus
tard, one teaspoonful of sugar, one-quarter of
a teaspoonful of pepper and one of salt, until
they are light and thick. Beat in gradually,
a few drops at. one time, until you have used
three-quarters of a cup of olive oil; if the
sauce becomes too thick, thin It with a little
vinegar and thon finish the oil. Add a tea-
Epoonful of onion juice, one tablespoonful of
chopped capers, and one of chopped cucumber
pickles. This is a delicious sauce to serve
with all kinds of fried and broiled fish.
Lobster a la Ncwburgh is a very popular
dish. To prepare It, put one tablespoonful
of butter in a saucepan, and when it has
melted, put in one and one-half cups of
boiled lobster meat cut into inch pieces,
one chopped truffie, a saltspoon of salt, and
a pinch of cayenne pepper. Cover the pan
and let the contents become heated. Then
add one and one-half gills of sherry, cover

NOTES ON HOME NURSING.
The Prevention ot Consumption.
Consumption is now known to be contagious.
Every new case Is contracted from some other
case. Those, therefore, having the care of
consumptives have very important duties to
perform—duties too often neglected. The per
sonal and bed clothes of a consumptive should
be washed by themselves, and should be ster
ilized in boiling water before they are han
dled by the laundress. The dishes used by
the patient should be kept exclusively for his
uee, and should be washed by themselves. Ex
p-ctorariess should be received In a cup In
which a germicide (a germ-killing drug) is
kept. Tbe cup should be of some material,
as porcelain, that does not correde, er of pa
per, which, being cheap, can be burned after
using. The porcelain cup should be washed
at least twice a day In boiling water; while in
use it should be half-filled with water in
which eight drops of carbolic acid solution
have been mixed. Or strong soap lye may be
used, er a corrosive sublimate solution (pro
portion of one-half tablet of tartaric acid sub
limate, or citric acid sublimate, to a pint of
water). The patient himself should be warned
never to expectorate where the sputum can
dry and be carried about by the air into the
lungs of well people. Where the cup Is not at
hand the sputum should be received in a
cloth, which should be burned.

My dear child, these painful deformities
are caused, as a rule, by ill-fitting shoes. A
shoe too short for the foot or a very high
heel will cause an In-growing toe-nail, a
source of endless trouble and suffering.
Wear low heels, and have your shoes a lit
tle longer than your feet, and you will not
be troubled by bunions, which are swellings
of the joints. Change your stockings often,
and bathe the feet twice a day to prevent
corns. A pretty foet is a foot in the right
proportion to the rest of the figure. It is
not always a small foot. Indeed, a tall, large
girl should not care for a foot fit only for
a wee midget who needs a tiny boot and an
elfin slipper. Never be ashamed of the size
of your foot, but keep your shoes and boots
in the nicest possible order.
Be very careful about buttons. A shoe
with one or two yawning spaces where all
should be neatness and trtmnese gives a dis
agreeable impression of its wearer. When
ever you can manage it, have several pairs
of sho** at a time. They last much longer
if relieved by one another; and when not in
use keep your shoes in a box or bag away
from dust, an* with tissue paper stuffed in
side their toes to preserve their shape. Wear
the nicest stockings you can procure. It is
true economy to purchase the best foot-gear
one can afford.
A New Salad.
At a luncheon last week the salad, which
was the now extremely popular one of apples
and celery, with a mayonnaise, was served In
bright red apples. The top of the apple waa
taken off neatly, the meat scooped out till the
walls were about half an inch thick, and the
shell filled with the salad. Every apple rested
on a bed of green cress. The apples want
to be prepared as near the time of serving as
possible, to prevent the rusting of the edges.
Served in this way the course is a pretty nov
elty, though on the same lines as tomato
shells, or those of green pefiper for the meat
or fish salad of a green and white luncheon.
HINTS FOR THE HOUSEHOLD.
Decanters and carafes that are stained in

and salt, rock saH being best for the pur

well until the stains have disappeared. Rinse
The following ls an excellent fruit salad,
and, like Dickens' Marchioness, if you
"make believe" just a little you will find
it tastes like pineapple: Take three large
oranges, peel, remove all the white part, and
cut the fruit into thick slices; pare two ap
ples and slice them very thin; alternate the
slices of fruit in a dish and sprinkle over
them sugar, tha juice of one lemon, all the
orange juice, and a glassful of sherry wine;
place on the ice for two hours before serving.

Valu..li' " 'flint to AH Who Wish

Charles tk ■ never wrote a truer thing
than the fi. Bg description of old age:
"Can any thine be more pitiable than the
sight of elderly men and women who realize
that the strength of earlier years is depart
ing? Down the plain of life, whose end is
darkness they lock. and wonder If their
weary steps will'carry them painlessly to the
end." . _<
But what aan»e'derly people do to avoid
these dang«rous symptoms of weakness?
How can they prevent the trembling of the
nerves, the lessening of vitality, the de
creased vigor, their frequent chilly sensa
tions? Plainly, 'they must have assistance.
Ordinary food and drink will not help them.
Drugs should Be avoided. The best advice
on the subject ii given by Dr. Gardner, an
eminent physician, who says:
"Elderly persons who suffer from cold feet
and find artificial heat, applied externally,
fails to afford relief, may, with great ad
vantage, take whiskey and hot water on going
to bed. If headache or foul tongue should
follow it may be regarded as a sure sign that
the spirit is impure, and probably contains
fusel oil. A very slight trace of this nox
ious ingredient will, in some constitutions,
produce headache—as accurate a test of im
purity as chemistry can erntloy."
There is only one absolutely pure whiskey
free from fusel oil, and that is the weli
known and universally popuar Duffy's pure
malt whiskey. It has all the properties that
contribute to health and vigor and none that
can Injure. It cannot harm the stomach of
even a child. It may be procured from any
reliable grocer or druggist, but care should
be exercised that no inferior imitation is
substituted. There is nothing e_e that can
possibly take its place.

Hang them out to air.
AN OUTLAID VOYAGE.
The tall ships come and the tall ships go
Across the purple bay;
But there's never a ship so fair and fine,
Never a ship so fair as mine,
As mine that sailed away.
Bright in the light, and gray in the shade,
And white when the waves glow dun.
The gulls ge by with their great wings spread;
But the sails of my ship were gold and red,
And they shone like the setting sun.
They make good cheer in the tavern here,
The sailors home from sea;
But the crew of my ship they feast with
In emerald crowns, and opal rings.
And coats of the cranaoisie.
Fine Is the freight their ships bring in,
But mine bears finer far;
Pearls and roses, and links of gold,
Myrrh and amber, and rich bales rolled,
As bright as the morning star.
'Twas May-day morn that my ship set sail,
With the dew on her figurehead;
Her bows were wreathed with the hawthorn
As she stole through the dusk of the dawn
Like a ghost, or a bride new-wed.
The May-days dawn and the May-days die,
And the hour draws near, I know;
The day when my ship shall come for me
To carry me back to mine own countrie,
East of the sun by the outmost sea,
In the heart of the Long Ago.

CHICAGO, May 9.—Wheat was firmer to
day on reports of chinch bugs in Illinois,
Hesslon flies In Indiana, and conflicting re
ports from other Western states. July closed
at 63%e, or %c above yesterday. Corn and
oats also came in for an advance on account
of unfavorable weather. Provisions alone de
clined to join in the advance. There was a
good trading and an active market in wheat,
fluctuations covering l%c range. The feeling
developed was considerably stronger during
the early hours. Early strength was due
chiefly to reports of damage. There was ac
tive buying by prominent operators and of

Argentine shipments also had an effect on
the market There was but little rain in the
Northwest and receipts In that section were
as liberal as a week and a year ago this date.
The weather 'forecast had a weakening effect
and caused prices to recede some. There was a
good general trade In corn. The close was
steady at %_ %c advance. Offerings In oats

even more conspicuously .-eak, getting as low
as $4.60, and closed at $4.62%. July ribs, which
closed on the day before at $4.17%, left off to

Covering Movement Waa the Fea-
tare of the Day.
NEW YO .X, May 9.—The usual covering
movement incidental to the half-holiday was
noted today in the stock market. The mar
ket Opened higher, but Boon eased off a
fraction under realizing orders. The Inquiry
frem the shorts, however, served to sustain
values, and In the subsequent operations
some sharp advances were scored. The In
dustrial list furnished the chief movements,
sharp rallies being noted in some of the
shares which bad suffered severely In ths
depression early in the week. The grangers
and other leading railway shares were feat
ureless, aside from the fact that St. Paul
reached the largest total of any In the entire
list. The expert probabilities were but light
ly touched upon, but bankers usually well
Informed look fer at least one shipment of
$I,_*,Go« by Tuesday's German steamer.
The speculation closed firm in tone at gen
eral fractional gains.
