CHRISTMAS PIES AND PUDDINGS.
The ritnn rottaga hikI Mutton Plea of
Olden Time Sylvester Cakes.
Nearly every nation has ;i special sort of
cake to le prepared for ClinstuiMS time. In
England and America plum pudding and
mince pies come under this category. Tlie
progenitor of plntn ptiddin;r, the pride and
(,lory of an English Christinas, was the
pin in porridge or plntn pultage which in
uldi'ti times was always s rveil with the
first course of a Christ mas dinner. Plum
hrot li figures in l'oor Kol.in's Almanack
fur ITjO unions the items of Cliristmas
fan; and Mrs. Fr.izer, "sol. teacher of the
art of cookery in lv.linliur.rh," who pub
lished a cookery book in K'.M, thought it
necessary to include plntn pottage among
hersoup. ll.-ihisha gives a receipt, in his
Whole ISody of Cook'ry Ui.ssected"
(l'iTft), for a pudding to lie boiled in a ba
sin, which bears a great resemblance to
our modern Christmas favorite. Tho
plum pudilinit shared h'nors with the
plum porridge in Addison's time.
Mince pies were popular under the name
of "mutton pies" as early lis 15!)ti, later au
thorities all agreeing in substituting neat's
tongue in the place of mution, the remain
ing ingredients leing much the same as
those recommended in niodern receipts.
They were also known as shred and Christ
Without the door let sorrow lie.
And if for cold it hap in die.
We'll bury if in a Christmas pie.
And evermore be merry.
According to some sj-tirical writer,
"Minced pyes" in Cromwell's time were
considered aa the test of schismatics. The
name of "Christmas pie" was obnoxious to
Pnritanical ears, as the enjoying of the
dainty itself was offensive Pnriwn taste.
All plnma the prorthet's eons deuy,
Aud spice broth nr too hot;
Treason's in a IVcemln-r pie.
Ana death within U e pot.
In aftertimes the Quakers took np the
prejudice, and inveighed against "Christ
mas pie"aa an invention of wicked Rome
a hodgepodge of superstition, popery, the
evil one and nil his works.

Of old, that worship'd imions, roots and len
tiles. In Germany the preparation of Christ
mas and Ncv Year's cakes is a much more
complicated business thin in England.
They have a sort of plum pudding there
called "sch:'ii-.hrnd," composed of much
the. same ingredients as the former, but
the compou:, i is sent to the baker to lie
formed into leaves. The lval cakes for the
festive season are a kin! of hardbake,
pressed into molds, whith are engraved
with a great variety of ijects, especially
animals, figures, flowers, tc, and known
as Sylvester cakes. This very ancient cus
tom had probably its rrigin in Rome,
where, on the vigil of the Nativity, sweet
meats were presented to the fathers in the
Vatican, and all kinds of little images were
to 1h found at this time in the confection
ers' shops. These cakes in some way cor
respond with the Yule rough or dow, a
kind of bahy or little image, which the
English bakers used formerly to present at
this season to their custoners.
Order of the Carter.
The order of the garter was founded in
1344, some writers say 13.VI, by Edward III.
The original number of knights was twenty-five,
his majesty himself making the
twenty-sixth. It was foinded in honor of
the holy tri iity, the Virgin Mary, St. Ed
ward the Confessor and St.. George. The
List, who li.i l become tho tutelary saint of
England, w:ls considered i-s special patron,
and for this reason it has always borne the
title of "Tin- Order of St. George," as well
as that of "The Garter." The emblem of
the order is a dark blue ribbon edged with
gold, bearing the motto. "Uoni soit. qui
mal y pense" in golden letters, with a
buckieand -nd.tntof gold richly chased.
It is worn on tin; left leg below the knee,
l.egarding l he adoption of this emblem
and motto, t lie story 'is t mt the Countess
of Salisbury let fall her tarter when danc
ing with the king, and tii it he picked it np
and tied it around his o vn leg, but that,
observing the jealous gla ices of the queen,
he restored it to its fair owner with the ex
clamation, "Tloni soit c tit mal y pense."
The Order of the Garter, though not. the
most ancient, is one of the most famous
military orders of Eurt pe. It is said to
have been devised for tiie purpose of at
tracting to the king's p trt y such soldiers
of fortune as might be likely to aid in as
serting the claim which m- . ;.s then mak
ing to the crown of Era i ce, anil intended
as an imitation of King Arthur's Round
Tanle. The ollieers of :,he order are the
prelate, the chancellor, the register, the
garter king of arms and the usher of the

Definition of the Science
Ixird Salisbury is quite a distinguished
savant as well as a renowned statesman.
In a recent lecture liefop) the Chemical so
ciety of London he said, "Astrouomy is, in
a great measure, the sci uice of thiugs as
they probably are; geology is the science of
things as they probably were; chemistry is
the science of things as they are at pres
ent." To these, add3 'I he Electrical En
quirer, "electricity is the science of things
as they probably will be."

A Chlcafro Yonnjr Woman Ran a Narrow

"Do yon see that lady in the carriage
with the little g.irl in her arms?" asked V.
I). Curt in, the undertaker.
"Well, that, is Mrs. , and eight years
ago I was called to her home by her father
to prepare her body for burial."
"What! prepare a live person for burial?"
asked the reporter in amazement.
"lu this case, yes," responded Mr. Curtin,
"but her parents and a physician thought
fche was dead."
"It was shortly after I opened up my es
tablishment, when one evening a nicely
dressed old gentleman came into the store
and asked for the proprietor. I informed
him that I was the individu;il he was seek
ing, mid asked him what I could do for
him. He toll me he desired my services
to prepare his daughter's , remains for
burial, and wanted her embalmed so that
the body would keep a month.
"This was about my lirst good job in
this vicinity, and I km w if I did my work
satisfactorily to the old gentleman that it
would help me in my business, which at
the time was not very hri-k, as I was com
paratively a stranger in that section of the
city. The old gent leman seemed anxious
to have me take charge of the remains my
self. After packing my instrument case
and taking an ext ra quant ily of embalm
ing fluid, 1 started fort he residence.
"When I rang the liell I was admitted by
a servant, who conducted me to the room
where the alleged corpse lay. As yet noth
ing had lieen disturbed. The body was
covered by a sheet, anil when I uncovered
the face I found it was that of a beantiful
girl about seventeen years of age. To all
appearance life was extinct, as the body
was cold and rigid. I lifted her on my
cooling board, and it was then that I dis
covered, when the features were plainly
visible, that her eyes were bright and not
covered by a film, as is usual, and that her
lips were remarkably red for a dend per
son. At first I was aiiout to rail the old
gentleman and tell him that his daughter
was not dead; but I thought belter of it, as
I was sure 1 was mistaken. Nevertheless
I determined to make the nsual tests, and
was about to prick her with my lance
when I thought I noticed a slight move
ment of the eye. Nor was I mistaken.
"I bared the neck so as to get near the
artery we use in arterial embalming, and
when I made a slight indentation with the
knife a small drop of blood dropped on my
finger. This blond was warm, and I then
knew that life was not extinct. I called a
servant and asked her what form of dig
rase her mistress had died of. She told mi
the doctor said it was 'typhoid malaria.' I
then asked for the death certificate, and
found that the servant was li'ht.
"I said not hing to any one in the house,
and, after wrapping the body in several
blankets, placed it. back on the bed.
"I had often re a 1 of people being in
trances and taken for th-ad. ami was sure
that this wj's a siurlar case. N'ot knowing
whether she was conscious. I spoke to her
and told hi r that I knew she was in a
hypnotic state and not dead, and that I
would return in a few moments with a
physician. 1 passed quietly out of the
house, telling the servant to allow no
person in the room till I returned, and
found a medical friend, who accompanied
me back to the house. He was not long in
determining the facts, as his diagnosis
proved beyond all doubt t hat t he lady was
not dead, but in a deep trance. He also
thonght she was conscions, and spoke
kindly to her, telling her not to fear, as
she would be all right in a little while.
"He injected a drug into her arm, and in
a short time was rewarded by hearing a
slight flutter of the heart, which gradually
"When I went down stairs the old gen
tleman was pacing up and down the parlor
floor, and when he saw me he started for
his hnt and coat, saying he would go back
to the store with ine ami pick out a casket.
I told him to be seated, as there was some
mistake, as his daughter did not need a
coffin at present, and I hope. I it would be
a long time before she did. At first 1 could
not make him comprehend that his daugh
ter was still alive, but finally convinced
him that it was n fact, and introduced him
to the doctor, who in the meantime had
come into the room.
"The old man was partly stunned and
acted more like a crazy man than the sen
sible person t hat he was. Well, both the
doctor and 1 sat at t he bedside of the girl
nil night, hilt it was not until the follow
ing afternoon that she recovered conscious
ness. She knew absolutely nothing of
what had taken place, and it was not until
some weeks after, when she had fully re
covered, that her father told her all. Three
years later she was married, and is today
as happy ti wife and mother as lives in Chi
cago." Chicago l'rcss.

IhU great divine told us once
that when he began to preach.
he lways had a glass of water
n-ar him to wet his throat oc
casionally, but afterwards he
reilected that nature was able
to take care of the throat if left
alone. This he proceeded to
do. and the result was that he
was soon able to talk for two
honrs at a stretch without any
desire for water. If a public
speaker will take a small tea
spoontul of Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure be
fore he is callel upon to make
an oratorical effort he will have
no trouble. His drink of water
ra'ber weakens the vecal
chords that assist them, but
this great remedy relieves the
co gestion, banishes hoarse
ness, and enables the speaker
to discourse without difficulty.
In this respect Reid's Oerman
Cough and Kidney Cure has no
equal among cough syrups.
