A ftab«tttui* for Toffee.
Ihe high price of coffee is causing a
oommotion among our economists, and
they are uctively engaged in trying to dis
cover Homo suitable substitute. Nothing
can take the place of good coffec, no mat
ter how vivid a man's imagination may
be. It ifi like trying to make busthead
whisky out of old boots, tobacco and rain
water. It may taste very much like it,
but still you may detect a difference. A
correspondent ot OBe of the St. Louis pa*
pers wrjtes the following recipe:
"Mr. hniTfHt:—As ooffec is now sell
ing at high prices, I wish to suggest a plan
for making cheap coffee. Get some rye
1st, scald it 2d, dry it 3d, brown it, and
then mix it with oue-lhird coflee and two
thirds rye, and then you will have as good
a cup of coffee as you ever drank."
Chickory, we all know, is largely used
in adulterating ground coffee. Use
cLiekory. There is a preparation culled
concentrated coffee, which is made mostly
of the sugar beet. Use sugar beet.
Take carrots and cut them up into small
pieces not larger than a grain of ooffee,
dry them and brown them. Mix one
third coffee with it and you can scarcely
tell the difference, ac carrots.
