CoTe.-Paro the peaches, cut them in
halves, removing the stones. Allow
one pound of granulated sugar to one
pound of peaches, crack one quarter of
the stones, extract the. kernals and re
move the dark skins; boil them in suffi
cient water to cover them until soft;
let them steep in a covered bowl until
needed; place the poaches and sugar
altoinately in layers in.a lined saucepan;
let it warin un slowly, strain and add the
water and the kernels. Let them boil
slowly until the peaches are clear and
tender, which mill be in about half 'au
hour. Skim them out carefully and
lay them on large flat dishes; boil up
the sirup for fifteen minutes, until it is
clear and thick, skimming as fast as
the skum rises. Fill jars two-thirds
full of the preserved peaches, pour on
the boiling strup. When cold place
tissue-paper oa the pots and cover
again with stout pa+per.
STRAWnERRY J AM - Tako some
strawberries and fully ripe currants, in
the proportion of one pound of currants
to six pounds of strawberries, and for
every pound of fruit allow three-quar
ters of a pound of sugar. Oarfully
pick over and mash the currants, and 1
for e ich pound of them add one gill of
water, place in a preserving kettle over
the fire and allow to boll up once. Now
after having carefully hulsed the straw
berries, add them and press all through
i hair sieve into an earthenware pan.
Put the sugar into the preserving ket
tIe, adding one gill of water for each
pound of.sugar, and boil it until it is of
the consistency of thick molasses. Now
add the puli,ed fruit, and allow all to
remain over a brisk fire for twenty
minutes, stirring constantly on the fire.
Now skim, pour Into glass jars or tum
blers, and when perfectly cold cover
securely as for strawberry proserves.
TuE woman wl;o said that her motto i
is "In health prepare for sickness,"
may have taken an extreme view of a I
coming calamity, but it is wise to have
enough of this spirit to prepare some f
things for use if needed, or, if you are
so fortunate as to escape sickness in f
your own home, some neighbor may
need your kind ofices. A very refresh- I
ing drink may be prepared when you
are putting up fruit. One is likely to
have more juice than she cares to put
Into cans. To each pint of this juice I
add sugar enough to sweeten well; t
there should be a pound of sugar to a f
pint of juice. Let it stand all night; E
in the morning boil for ten minutes; f
skim and bottle it, putting sealing-wax C
over the cork. Currant juice is excel- I
lent put up in this way.
EOILED SQUASH. - Peel a large
squash or two small ones, cut them in 1
pieces about an inch square, put them
over the tire in salted boiling water, 3
and boil them until they are tender; in
the meantime for three pints of squash
mix together over the tre a tablespoon
ful each of butter and flour, and stir
them until they are brown; then grad- t
ually add a pint of boiling water and a
high seasoning of salt and pepper.when
this sauce boils set it aside until the
squash is done;after the squash is
drained from the water in which it was
boiled, put it into the hot brown sauce,
and serve It at once.
TOMATO SAUCE. - One gallon of
green tomatoes, six medium-sized on

tablespoonful of cloves, one tablespoon
ful of black pIeppelr, one teaspoonful of
mace, one gill of white mustard seed,
vinegar. Chop upI the tomatoes and
onions. and add the spaces. Paick down

CREAM OARE.-One cup of butter,
two cups of sugar, whites of two eggs,

one teaspoonful of cream tartar. Fori

L'he moisture is also more easily re.

L'here Is also skill required in planting.

he depth should be less than that for

arrow may be passed over the field;
ut, If not too late in the season, it
vould be better to wait for a rain. As
n early start is half the progress, the
ultivation should begin as soon as the

rat early 4cultivation will impart,
