Sedan as a battle field may be said to
be already obliterated. The wide re- r
glon over which the struggle raged I
still remains, but already in these few
years have disappeared almost all
traces of the tragedy of which it was
the theater. The plow has passed over .r
the countless graves whose mounds i
sttdded the strangely diversified ter
rain from Bazeilles to Fleneux, from
Givonne to Fining. The visitor to
Sedan can find now no guide to the
battle-field. The English resident who I
for the first year or two af ter the battle
olered himself in that capacity has
abandoned the role for lack of employ
ment, and concentrates himself on his
original avocation. I have spoken of
the visitor to Sedan, but indeed there
are no visitors. "They came very
thick for a year or two after the bat
tIe," so testifies the hotel waiter, "but
now we have not once in six months a
stranger who desires to see the field of
battle." Sedan itself is fast altering,
so as scarcely to be recognized by one
familiar with it during the war time.
Its fortifications are andergoIng demoli
tion, and Sedan Is now in name, as in
effect it has been ever since the intro
duction of rifled artillery, an open
town. Vauban's bastions and curtains
are very massive, and their wrought
stone faces and cemented backings
yield reluctantly; but they are gradu
ally being effaced, and Sedan is open
ing its lungs and stretching itself be
yond the trammels that were wont to
inclose it. Ditches are being filled up,
and boulevards are being laid out on
their site. As one enters from the rail
way station though the suburb of Torey,
formerly enclosed within the line of
circuinvallation, lie passes stately aide
streets lined with line new buildings.
Where the German soldiers used to

where once were ranged, row upon
row, the hundreds of 11old guns that
the vanquished had surrendered to the
victors. The gate from under whose
archway the bearer of the flag of truce
.emerged from the distracted city Is
gone so completely that the very site
of it Is not to be lndentifled. In the
little place inside the bridge over the

TRAINING OxEN.-The first thing
ecessary in training oxen, Is kindness i
lien patience. I began in November last p
ot knowing whether I could get them a
aught in time for this season or at all, f
iut I soon found them so tractable-that 1
ay hopes began to be raised. It took a
no just a day to learn that it wasn't 1
tecessary to strike a, blow or speak a t
vord. The- farmers who go along o
houting at their cattle and goading 1
hem, waste breath and strength. A 8
lozen yoke of oxen could be taught to t
Iraw a lead a hundred miles without I
word or a blow. It Isaonly necessary F
Ahat the farmer should ead, to show t
he direction, and the t:easta if kindly i
rested and having ant aireotion or 1
Ahilr master, will do the rest. These a
)xen were trained by uniform kindness.
A seies of tricks In regular order
was fixed upon, and I put them
rhrough every day. I was with them
nearlyall the time and they followed me
like two pet kittens. There was a ring
in the stables where I taught them day
by day. Firat, with food in my hands,
I got theni to follow me around In any
direction I choose to take. In this way
I got then to go along on their knees
to waltz. What they knew When I got
them had practioally to be uiittaughtit
as it was all done by 'gee' and 'haw.
I found they were quick of sight, and
that,having taugtit then e ,rtaLn things,
I needed alter that to Simply get where
they could see me, and to give thin a
ue by the motion of my body or my
whip in a t cortiill diretioni. Ilr this
way the waitz was taught, and when
they go around tihe ring on their knees
I keep ahead of them and they follow

How TO 11OIL AND STEW.-To do eith
3r properly, the food muct be immersed
at the beginning in actually boiling
water must be allowed to reach the
boiling point agali immediately, and
to boll ior about five minutes. The
action of the boiling water upon the
sirface of either nicat or vegetables is
to harden it slightly, either Juices or
mineral salts. After the pot contain
ing the food has begun to boll the Fec
ond time, It should be removed to the
side of the fire, and allowed to simmer
until the foo.d is done. This simmer
ing, or stewing, extracts all the nutri
tious qualities of either meat or vege
tables; the pot should be kept closely
covered unless Ior a moment when it is
necessary to raise the cover in order to
remove the scun. The steam wilt con
dense upon the Inside 01 the cover, and
fall back into the pot In drops of mois
cure, if the b-illing Is slow. Do not
think that rapid boiling cooks faster
than the gentle process I recommend.
After the pot once bolls you cannot
make its contents cook any faster if
you have fire enough under It to run a
stean engine. So save your fuel and
add it to the fire little by little, to keep
the pot bolling. Remember if you boll
meat hard and fast it will be tough and
tasteless, and most of its goodness will
go up the chimney, or out of the win
dow with the steam.
