The fourth lecture of the Pure Food cooking school was given yesterday afternoon on the subject of salads. Miss Colling thinks that a salad should be served every day of the year. The va riety and kinds are so great that no dif ficulty should confront a housekeeper on that score. She thinks vegetable salads preferable for dinner, a3 they are cooling and tend to purify the blood. The salads containing oil are very healthful and are really needed to keep one in health, as oil is one of the best of our foods. The cooked and mayonaise dressing may be made and bottled, when they will keep two weeks, and she urges that every housekeeper keep a supply in stock. The first recipe was for the cooked dressing, and as she read the direc tions she made the dressing, as fol lows: One-third cup of butter, two level tablespoonfuls of flour, one-half pint of milk, three eggs, one level tablespoon ful of salt, two level tablespoonfuls of sugar, two level teaspoonfuls of mus tard, a speck of cayenne, one-half cup of vinegar. Put the milk into a doubla boiler, rub the butter and flour to gether and stir them into the milk when it has reached boiling point, stir until it thickens, let it stand a moment while you mix the other ingredients. Beat the egss until frothy, add to them the sugar, salt, mustard and cayenne, stir well until mixed, then stir in the vinegar, mix well and stir this mixture into the cream sauce in the double boiler. Continue stirring until smooth and thick (about two minutes) and take at once from the fire. When cold this may be placed in a tightly corked bottle and kept in a cold place two weeks. Miss Colling suggested .that during the summer months a nice salad may be made from the small amounts of the vegetables left from dinner. The mayonaise dressing was next made, following this recipe: Put the yolks of two eggs in a cold soup plate. Beat or stir a moment with a silver or wooden fork, then add half a teaspoonful of salt, a speck of cay enne, and, if you like it, half a teaspoon ful of mustard. Work these well to gether, then add a few drops at a time, about one. pint of Olive oil stirring rap idly and steadily all the time. Stir only one way, as reversing the motion may cause it to curdle. While adding the oil, add also, occasionally, a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice until it attains the consistency you desire. The more oil you use, the thicker the dressing. If the dressing should curdle, begin again with one or two more yolks, in another plate, and after stirring well add one teaspoonful at a time of the curdled mayonaise, and when all has been stirred in, continue adding oil as before until the desired amount is obtained. Everything used in making a mayonaise dressing, the dish included, should be ice cold, especially in warm weather. "This dressing may be used on vege table salads, and for potato salad it should be thinned a little with either cream or water put in just before using., Not too much care can be taken in se4 curing fresh oil, as otherwwise tne dressing will be apt to cuudle. "In preparing chicken for salad," said Miss Colling, "boil it whole, and after the first ten minutes of rapid cooking put it on the back of the stove and al low it to simmer until done. A small amount of celery, a bay leaf, a small onion, a sprig of parsley may be put in and boiled with it, giving a nice flavor to the chicken. When done, put it where it will cool, then remove skin and bones and cut the meat in strips. J tnen .in uuues, uau u ihltti than to chop; add salt, pepper and cel ery to the dressing. There are psople who do not care for oil, and in prepar ing for a large company it i3 well to make the mayonaise dressing rather stiff, then add whipped cream to thin it. The cream covers the taste of the oil to some extent. Do not put the dress ing on the salad until just before it is served, as it toughens fhe celery. When nuts are used they should be blanched. In making salad of swe?t breads, use peas, as they naturally be long to sweetbreads in serving." The question was asked if she ever used oil in boiled dressing.and Miss Col ling said she did not. The salad should be served Just be fore the dessert.

Gar nish with celery tops. Nuts may be added to this salad in the proportion of one-half cup of nuts to two cups of celery and apple. Miss Colling garnished this salad with small slices of apples, cut in crescent shape pieces, with the red rind and celery tops making a tempting looking dish. The walnut salad was next made, after this recipe: Make a nest of lettuce leaves on an individual salad dish. Arrange on it several pieces of orange. First cut into slices and then into quarters. Add a few halves of English walnuts. Place on each a tiny speck of mayonaise dress ing and serve. The walnuts may be bleached or not, as preferred. The following is the recipe for French dressing: One tablespoonful of vinegar, three tablespoonfuls of olive oil, one-half teaspoonful of salt, one-quarter tea spoonful of black pepper. Put the salt and pepper into a bowl, and gradually the oil, rub and mix until the salt is thoroughly dissolved, then add the vin egar by degrees, stir it constantly for about a minute, and it is ready to use and should be used at once. At the close of the lecture Mr. Eu gene F. Ware went forward and made today's announcements, which were of interest to the ladies.
