General News of Interest to
The Rock Island system has taken

made only lately, Ohmer Bros., formerly
having operated the restaurants and

system, except two houses east of the
'Missouri river. These the company
itself had control of.
Mr. Frank Stewart of Davenport, la.,
has been made manager of this depart

Ohmer Frog., who have far EL long

this line, have- recently bought a. two

Among railroads there is no estab

taurants and lunch rooms. Some com
panies control the eating houses directly,
while others give the management to
one or two persons for the whole FYS
tem, and still others ailow individuals
all along the line to conduct the busi
nese. Dining cars are not yet being' used
on other than those trains running on
a fast schedule and making short stops
at most places. For this reason it is evi

Flavor Essential to Good Digestion.
'Tls said that "appetite cornes 'with eat
ing." This greatly depends upon the
cook's understanding of the different es
sential properties posssessed by natural
foods and the importance of retaining' and
developing certain principles. By natural
foods we mean those unchanged in their
constituent parts by partial cooking or
previous preservation In any way. One or
these principles which deserves a more
careful study than it generally receives is
osmazone, that property in all' food ma
terials which gives them flavor. The
manner in which this substance is treat
ed in the preparation of our foods has as
much to do with their assimilation as the
proper development of tbe raw material
into suitable form for nutrition. It may
even be necessary to sacritice a certain
amount of nitrogenous substance in order
to make the food most acceptable to the
HEAT DEVEL,OPS ODORS AND FLA
Every' article of natural food fins Its
own particular flavor, which distinguishes
it from all others. In all forms of starchy
foods the elements which impart odor or
flavor are mild, while g-reen vegetables,
many of them, noticeably the onion, cab
bage, caulitiewer and tutnips, all of which
contain a considerable amount of pungent
essential oil and sulphur, have a most pro
nounced flavor and odor.
Osmazone seems imparted for the spe
cial purpose of making food agreeable
to the taste and to a,dil to the pleasure
of eating. Our natural tastes would be
quite satisfied with these tia,vors if prop
erly developed and the palate not pervert
ed by the custom of undue use of highly
seasoned condiments. And the uncor
rupted palate is in such close harmony
with these natural flavors tha,t it is un
able to distinguish to a nicety all the dif
ferent changes and gradations, thus en
hancing the pleasure of eating- as well as
promoting the digestion of wholesome
viands. While there are other agents
employed in converting food materials in
to a suitable state for our acceptance,
heat is. the all-important factor. By a.
wise provision of nature 'this flavoring
principle is only perfectly developed 'when
it is prepared in a manner best adapted
to furnish us wholesome nourishment.
Meats impart their most agreeable flavor
when they are cooked in the manner best
fitted for digestion. This is true of vege
tables as well. We may safely conclude
that the excessive use of condiments has
been caused to a great extent by careless
cooking of meats, which rendered them
fiat, stale and unprofitable. and necessi
tated the addition of artificial flavors to
induce the palate to accept them.
T'HE FLAVOR OF FRUIT.
T'he various fruits may be known by
their specific flavors, and when they are
fully ripe the slightest amount of beat
Will diminish their flavor. The declicious
flavor of the peach is entirely lost in
eooking by the usual method.
HOW ,TO AVOID STRONG ODORS IN
All food materials, except those of a
starchy nature, should be cooked in un
covered or ventilated vessels. The vege
tables possessing the strong' odors may be
made very delicate and entirely digestible
if these odors are allowed to escape while
cooking. Boiled meats are strong and less
wholesome when cooked in a closely C017.
ered vessel. The lid should be partially
off while the meat is cooking. True, a
certain amount of the nutrients are lost,
but the meat is rendered more digestible
and, as we have stated, it may be nec
essary to lose a certain amount of these
properties in order to make the food more
palatable. and consequently more certain
to be digested.
COOKING IN BOILING WATER.
When food materials are cooked by this
method, one especially important point to
be remembered is that water that is not
used immediately on coming to boiling
point will soon lose the gases which im
part the fresh taste to it, and when used
for making coffee or tea is less palatable
than the freshly boiled. For vegetables
the same rule must be observed. When
the object is to soften the texture or ex
tract the soluble compounds. as in making'
soups. broths, coffee and tea, soft water
should be used. Where we wish to pre
serve the article whole and retain the
flavoring principles and natural color. as
in green vegetables, hard or salted water
is best. Onions should always be cooked
in salted water. Remember that in order
to draw out the inner albuminous Juices.
soften the fibers and gelatinous portions
of meat and hold them in solution. we
must use cold water. Therefore. when it
is the object to keep the nutriment within
the meat, must use boiling' water in
sufficient eilantity to completely cover
the meat. which should be kept in solid
bulk. This immerCion into hot water
immediately coagulates the external al
bumen over the entire surface. making a
coating over the pores and thereby pre
venting the escnpe of the juices frem the
interier, not only the albuminoue Juices,
but the most important of the flavoring'
In order to retain the flavoring Juices of
delicate fish and yet not break and dis
figure it the water must be used at the
boiling' point, exc.-pt when first applied.
The temperature must be immediately re
duced to a degree when the agitation will
not break and thus allow the flavor and
much of the nutrients to escape. Such
oily. strong flavored fish as salmon and
mac'kerel are put in cold water and heat
ed quickly to boiling point. In this way
much of the salmon color in the former
will be lost as well as the characteristic
juices that give the strong taste.
MEATS COOKED IN COLD WATER.
By this method we extract the flavors
and nutrients entirely and combine them
with the water. This gives us soups and
broths. To facilitate the work we cut the
meat into small pieces, crack the bones,
cover with cold water and allow it to
stand as long' as possible before heating
in order to draw out the juices to enrich
the liquid. Then it is all heated gradu
ally to the point below boiling and kept
at that temperature until all the nutrients
and flavors are extracted.
A THIRD alETHOD.
Ts to eook meats In water in such a
manner that part of the nutrients and fla
vors are drawn out and part retained in
the meats. If the meat is covered with
cold water and brought quickly to boiling
point, allowed to continue at that temper
ature about five minutes and then kept
at a. gentle simmer. we will have the
liquid enriched with the free juices which,
are found beneath the fibers of the meat,
while others, existing within the fibers,
are retained. giving pleasing taste to both
meat and sauce. Examples of this meth
od are stews and fricassees.
COOKING STARCHY VEGETABLES.
Cold water will extract starch from veg
etables, but does not combine with it.
roiling water will toughen and harden the
enveloping' tissue, while the heat bursts
the starch cells and absorbs the albu
minous juices within. Vegetables which
consist principally of starch and water
should be cooked at a high temperature
throughout, otherwise they will. if boiled,
be water-soaked and poor of flavor. Soups
and broths must be kept at the simmering
point while cooking' or they lose savori
ness, while coffee and tea, if allowed to
fall below the steaming point, lose their
m. Edith Rogers writes: Will you please
publish a recipe for making French
nougat,,also one for marshmallows?
Put a pound of granulated cane sugar In
sausepan: add two tablespoonfuls of
boiling water and stir continually over the
fire with a wooden paddle until it is melt
ed. The moment it melts put in a pound
of sweet almonds which have been
blanched, dried and shredded lengthwise
and stir for a moment to mix. Take
from the fire and turn into a square, well
oiled pan and stand in a cold place to
harden. When the sugar begins to melt
it first becomes moist. then forms into lit
tle grains like rice, then begins to break
up until it melts.
MARSHMALLOWSCover two ounces
of finely powdered white gum arabic with
eight ta,blespoonfuls of cold water; soak
an hour and then dissolve gradually over
boiling water. Strain through a fine sieve
into a double boiler; add seven 01111CPS of
confectionery sugar and stir over the fire
until white and stitY. This requires some
time. Remove from the fire, beat rapidly
for a few minutes and add a teaspoonful
of -vanilla. Dust a square tin with rice
flaur or cornstarch, pour out the mixture
and stand away to cool. When cold cut
into squares, roll lightly in the flour and
pack in boxes.

6.1 recently caught cold which settled in the kidneys and caused 171
serious Inconvenience. Nothing I did seemed to help me and the doctor
advised a change of climate. As that was out of the question for me,
I tried Peruna as a last resort and I found It was a Ood-send to me. In two
days I began to feel better and in less than two weeks the kidney troublo
was greatly relieved. I used four bottles and an entirely cured, and if I
ever feel any lassitude I take Peruna and always with the same good

liable to settle somewhere. Its most
common seat is- in the head, throat or
lungs. It may and frequently does settl3

cold settles in the-kidneys it very quick

it may be located.

Judge H. Henry Powers of Vermont
gives Peruna the highest possible en..
dorsement as he uses it in his family
for climatic diseases of winter. In a
letter written from Washington, D. C.

with success. 1 cari recommend it as
an excellent family remedy, and very
good for coughs, colds, and catarrhal

AN OLD COLD
is Chronic Catarrh The Worst Dis
The first stage of catarrh IS COMMOTI
Iy -alled catching- cold. In the majority
of cases no attention is paid to a cold,
LhErefore nearly hal:: of the people bave
chronic catarrli in some form.
Chronic catarrh is the bane of Amer
ican civilization. There is no organ of
the human body that it cannot destroy,
in hotels are, as a rule, made with pre
pared buckwheat flour, each package giv
ing the method of preparation approved
of by the manufacturer. Old fashioned
buckwheat cakes are made as follows:
Take one pint of warm milk and one pint
of warm water mixed. Put half of the
liquid Into a stone crock; add five cups
of pure buckwheat flour and beat to a
smooth batter. Then add remainder of
liquid, two teaspoonfuls of salt and a cup
of liquid yeast or one yeast cake dis
solved In half a. cup of warm water. Set
in the evening for breakfast. Stand in
a eool place over night. Half a. cup of
yellow cornmeal added to the batter will
make the cakes brown quieker. Do not
add sug-ar or molasses. The former tough
ens the cakes and the latter makes them
heavy and bitter. Many prefer the flavor
of the prepared. self-rising buckwheat to
the old fashioned flour.
M. O. W. writes: Will you kindly give
a, recipe for popovers such as are served
at breakfast in best hotels?
Grease your popover pans or small
earthen cups and set them in the oven
to heat. Beat three eggs without sepa-l'ating
until very light. Add to them a
pint of milk. Measure two cupfuls of
sifted flour; add half a, teaspoonful of salt
and sift again Into a mixing- bowl. Make
a well in the middle of the tiour and grad
ually add milk and eggs, laeating in the
flour until you have a smooth batter free
from lumps. If you add liquid too rap
idly you cannot beat out the lumps and
the batter will havee to be strained and
flour wasted. Quickly fill the heated cups
or popover pans about half full with the
batter, Place In a hot oven and bake
until Perfectly light when handled. It
will require about twenty-five minutes If
oven is just right. They should swell to
three or four- times their original bulk.
Served with lemon sauce they rnake a
dainty dessert for luncheon.
