who are in a ertaii sense "gen

class, but the farmers who rent
their h1omles and acres from some
testate, who work late and early.
who represent a powerful class of
m11eI inl any active em1ergenlcy and

personal ambition than making

w"e hr ,d l ,tper ;li her skill
in eiii niary mhatteIs-genilune farm
house cookery. such as I give re
ceipts for below. being her special
tv. Market days had always seen
her father's table crowded with
farmers, teamlisters, &c.. for the reg
ular shillirg dinner and "Polly'
light, deft hand at a pudding or a
roait. a "pasty" or a "lip was
well known and appreciated. More
ever. she could cut and trim, salt
and hang or pack a piece oi meat
with the best and her "clotted
cream" and butter were famous.
So away went eighteen-year.old
Polly to a small, snug little farm
house of gray stone. with a queer
stack of chimnlleys-al odd wing
it one side and the most pictur
esque of latticed windows, which
looked forth on a tidy farn-a
barnyard well stocked with tiwl
some good acres of grain and an
orchard that yielded well. At the
back of the house was a rIuning
stream and a bit of delightful old
garden. Little time is wasted over
sentiment among there people, al
though they never under any cir
cunstalnces which have comle to
my knowledge lose all fielinlg of r,
miance-the women do not fade as
they grow older like so many of
our farmer's wives, nor do the men
sink into the (luerulous and in
healthy condition which I verily
believe is the result of the miserable
cookery existing in nearly all the
homes of our working classes.
And how, it will be asked, do
the English farming people live a

wa.s as follows: Breakfast (in sum

winter shortly before seven) con
sisted of bacon, cold or hot, some
tiies eggs nicely fried or cooked
up with cold potatoes, after a re
ceipt I wili presently give. Tea
or milk for the young people-of
whom in ten years there were seven
at II farm, the Y- home
and beer for the master of the
house ; on wash days Mistress
Poily had her glass a-s well, and 1
the womanl who was hired to as
sist her was allowed the same.
The potato-egg dish was made as t
follows: The eggs, beaten with a
light, swift hand, had added to
them a pinch ofsalt, pepper and a
bit of chopped parsley and tiile of (
oion. The cold potatoes were
then lightly whipped up with
twvo or thrniee tablespoonfuls of 1
milk ; the whole mixed together
and fried in lard or butter a nice
brown. Let any one tr-y this r-e
