The University Cooking Lectures—Roast
I.unit). Cream Soup, Hailed and Baked
l'o atoes -Instructive Lectures Delivered
to an Interested Audience.
Miss Corson opened the third day's ses
sion in the lecture course on cookery to an
augmented audience, in the university
chapel, yesterday morning at 10 o'clock.
Notwithstanding the announcement of
Prof. Porter that he had employed
a stenographer to take every
word uttered by Miss Corson,
during the entire course with the view of
publishing thejleotures and distributing
them free to the housewives and yoang
ladies in attendance, feminine interest had
become so excited that the ladies present
yesterday, used their note book<? and pen
cils bo industriously that there willfsoaroely
be any necessity for furnishing them wita
a printed report.
The first object to which Miss Corson
drew tha attention of her fair auditors
was a shoulder of lamb,
as boned and roasted.
The shoulder blade was fir3t removed by
cutting from the inside; by boiling, for a
ehort time and then soraping every parti
cle of meut was obtained from the bone.
The shoulder pieca aftar b»ing boned was
sewed up with string, which is preferable
to thread oa account of being larger and
easier to see, Jeaving a pocket wherein the
stuffing is placed, the recipe for whioh
was given as follows:
Take one toa^poonful of chopped onion
fried is a tta^puonfnl of butter until light
brown; while frying, soak a cup of stalo
bread in cohl water until soft; then
squeeze out the water, and place the soak
ed bread in with tho fried onion; add a
teaspoon?al of salt, a teaspoonful of any
kind cf dried sweet herb, also a half
spoonful of pepDer; stir all these in
gredients ever the fire until scalding hot;
use this force meat as pre
pared for stuffing the shoulder, or it may
be used for any small bird. The opening
is then oloeed by sewing in a long over
urawn stich so as to prevent any escape of
the forcement. Do not season until after
browning on the outside, then place it in
a hot oven and allow twenty minutes to a
pound of meat for roasting. Do not put
water in the pan to use for basting, be
cause water draw 3 the juice from the meat.
If there is danger of burning, place over
the roast a strip of butt^i .1! paper.
The receipt for the urtd- of salmon was
next given, as follows:
Take a cupfull of boiled „!mon stript of
skin and bones and run through a sieve;
then mix with one quart of cream Boup
and it is fit for an epicure.
The recipe for cream soup was the next
on the programme. It was given as fol
ul of batter ahd flour placed
over the fire and stirred natil smooth,
then add milk to the amount of a quart;
season with white pepper and salt and
little pinch of grated nutmeg; then into
the cream soup stir in the boiled salmon,
which results in a delicions cream of
The boiliag and baking of potatoes came
next in order. She recommended
the ladies to do as lit L c
peeling an passible for a good deal of the
nutriment lies near the skin, and at the
lowest calculations an ounce of potato is
left in a pound of pooling. It is batter to
cut a strip around the potato so thtt when
boiled the skin may be easily removed. Af
ter placing the potatoes in tho pot, barely
cover them with v»ater, with salt udded L,
the proportion of a tablespoonful of salt
to one quart of water. When quite done,
pour off the water and cover with a napkin
—avoid placing a metallic cover over them
because this oondenees the rising steam
and falls back into the vegetables, inuking
them soft and soggy. When serving do
not cover except with a napkin. To bo
boiled, potatoes should" be placed over, a
hot fire and then served as soon as
they are thoroughly baked through.
She stated in connection with this topic
that a good plan for killing insects that
may happen to be lodged in some vegeta
bles, especially ia lettuce and cauliflowers,
is to sprinkle the vegetables with salt.
The last preparation considered was
cheese crusts, for which bread, a day or
two old, was cut into slices; upon eaoh
slice place a tablespoonful of grated
cheese and a slight dust of pepper and
salt as well as a small piece of butter.
Place the pieces of bread into 9 pan
in a quick oven and leave until browned.
This takes about ten minutes. Th 6 dish
niay be served, either hot or cold, with
salad, and is quite delicious. The shoul
der of lamb had been roasted by this time
and gravy wa<3 prepared by adding a pint
of water seasoned to the dripping in the
pan and then mixiag it well with a tablo
spoonful ot flaur.
At this time Mrs. Williams arose and an
nounced to the audience that at the con
clusion of the morning /session, an
oportuniiy would be afforded to
thoso desirous of signing a petition re
questing Miss Corson to continue the
course for another weak. Mrs. Harlovr
Gale offered the use of Market hall as that
is more centrally located than any other
hall for tho conference of the ladies. The
matt9r was loft over uncil to-day.
In the afternoon fish and poultry were
discussed in an interesting manner.

The following :s the programme for to

stewed in cream; venison, with currant
isily; 6tewed carrots and oibinet pudding.
(irau's Opera Company.
At the matinee in the Grand yesterday
asternoon, Gran's English opera company
gave the etcond presentation, during its
brief engagement here, of the opera com
ique by Lecocq, " Heart and Hand." The
rendition in every particular was superior
to that of Monday night. The difficulty
with which the company had to contend
with oq Monday night, and one which
greatly marred the opera, was a mishap
through which the orchestration had been
temporarily lo3t, consequently the orches- j
tra were obliged ta use fcirnply the pian* j
" score," tie various parts being!
transposed at sight by the j
respective musicians. In this connection |
Mr. 3nyder, the musical director of the j
company, paid a high compliment to Prof. 1
Danz's orchestra, in the statement that it j
i 3 his belief that there are few orchestras
outside of the few largest cities whioh
could have executed the music at all snder
! the circam3taaces. Ye9t€>rday the musi
ciaua had become more familiar with the
Kcore and tha playing was smooth, if not
correct. The member* of the com
pany, furthermore, were in better trim,
and '■ he leading roles were sang nicely—
notably the "King," by Harry Haskell; the
"Prince," by Willet Seaman; -'Mechaela,"
by Miss Bessie Gray, and "Dona Scholas
tica," by Mias Tillie Mcflenry. Mi3s Gray
is petite and especially vivacious, well
trained and supported by an admirable
stage presence.
Andrian's Bparkhng opera, "Olivette" is
always ponlar in Minneapolis. The music
although light, is effective and pleasing—
very pretty if not brilliant. In the title
role Mias Gray was afforded an opportun
ity to display her peculiar talent, and she
oaptured the audience, whioh was at first
manifestly predisposed to colduesa. At
the conclusion of the second act, when she
sent her slipper flying high above the
parquette, lighting in the balooDy circle,
the applause scarcely knew bounds. The
Coquecot of Mr. Walden was original aod
well played, although he was suffering a
severe cold and would not attempt the
Jamaica Rum song, which was rendered
by Miss Power. His song of "Bob Up
Serenely" received a triple encore.

London, Jan. 30.—At a meeting of the
Society of Arts last evtving, the Marquis
of Lome presiding, a paper was read upon
emigration to Canada. The Princess
Louise is interested in the work of ths
emigration society. Gait, late high com
missioner for Canada, said 200,000,000
acres of land had been given away in
farms, on the simple condition that the
farmers should have the right of owner
ship, and the Canadians thus reject the
doctrines of Henry George. The Marquis
of Lome said he had been gtearly sur
prised to see the most
extraordinary telegram, purporting
to emanate from New York,
which asserted that the finances of Canada
were in a bad way and were going gener
ally to the devil, but he had been relieved
next day by receiving a letter from the
secretary of the high commissioner for
Canada, which showed that the figures in
the dispatch ware altogether erroneous, in
many instanc&s hundreds of thousands of
dollars ont of the way. This had led him
to the conclusion, that while many people
in America were kindly affected towards
Great Britain and all things British, cer
tain others were quite the reverse. As far
a 9 he himself was concerned, he could on

This morning Grain Inspectors Fleming
and West were called upon for their views.
Maj. Fleming considered the peregrinat
ing committee a fine means of getting
Borne relief, though not complete. He
thought it more judicious than the law.
The territorial law was meagre and goo J
for nothing. His duties were uncertain.
Ho recommended the plan of organization
of farmers' unions.
Judge West buggestod legislation to give
each county an inspector and board of
appeal to settle disputes about grades.
Farmers can ezercise a great influence to
secure such a law. He suggested the plan
pf iesnicg duplicate tickets by elevators,
one stamped duplicate to bo kept
by the farmer as a record
of the amount and grade of hi 3 wheat. It
would deter agents from fraud in mixing
and imposing on elevator companies as
well as farmers.
Resolutions v/ere p^?sed requiring re
form in the elevator eysterrf of oheoking,
and one that the ticket be canceled when
paid and returned to the farmer. There
was a ludicrous and exciting ssene at the
close. Numerous motions were hurried
by the chairman, eager to meet the noon
train. Hovey, a delegate from Walsh,
wanted to saddle the expense of the ten
visiting statesmen on the respective coun
ty treasurers. It wns indignantly repudi

and moved to reconsider the resolutions. )
He was choked off by the chairman with
bis overcoat on.
Brown said he would pay his own bills,
and the committee should be independent.
They would go to St. Paul and be soaped
over so they would forget all about the
farmers and the true way out, viz.: by a
competing line of railroad, the only rem
edy. His remarks were heartily applaud
ed by the audience.
There were more farmers outsido than in
the delegation.
Finally it was informally decided that
eaoh county provide for ihe expenses of its
own oommitteemen for the pilgrimage.
Adjourned at 11:30. The feature of local
organization practically is to wield
the macs on questions when
tie resolutions to extend aid
to competing railways are carried into ef
fect. Farmers generally are willing to
grant the right of way and a bonus of five
cents per bushel on every bushel of wheat
solv* by them in the next two years to any
competing line from the south or ease.
Local meetings have embodied the same
in rtsolutioDs. Township councils under
this plan of organization can regulate the
levyiDg and collection of the bonus and se
cure grants of road bed of great import
ance to this work. The general sentiment
is that pilgrimages and resolves amount
to nothing, and that we must rely on a
new outlet, and are determined
to have it. Several feasible routes

There is warm sympathy for Manitoba
in the fight for an outlet by a competing

desired are yet achieved. The farmers
planted here by the railroad company
without means had to rely on themselves.
The past ha 3 been a painful strnggle with

the arteries of his person as well as trade.

JBp/ore the Convention.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Gband Fobks, Dak., Jan. 29—That
the farmers of the ncrthwest are a'.ive to
their interests, and that all their com
plaints are rot without foundation in fact,
is clear from the full attendance of dele
gates from Grand Forks and adjacent
counties, together with representatives
from Winnipeg and Minnesota, at the gen
general convention called for to-day.
arrived yesterday, and were last evening
given an informal reception at the offices
of Budge & Echleman,bsing honored with
a good audience and serenaded by the
Cadet band. They are here to press on the
convention the feasibility of the Hudson
Bay route, opening to Dakota a3 well as
Manitoba, as they claim, an outlet for
wheat 1,000 miles nearer to
Liverpool than by any ether
route. They say that the
Hudson is navigable at all seasons as
proven by the records at York and Moose
Factory for upwards of 100 years and that
losses to shipping have been marvelonsly
few. The chief danger to be apprehend
ed to vessels sailing through the straits is
that from ice floes in the months of Juns
and July. Fort York with which it ia pro
prosed to ooineot Winnipeg by rail, is
eighty mileß nearer Liverpool, the con
trolling wbeat market of the world, than
is New York, and these gentlemen, (Wm.
Clark, editor Northwest Farmer and Mani
toba Miller, and JRtues £. Steen) i»atis£if<l
the meeting that 25 c?.nts per ba-htl j
would be saved to the farmer of tho Red !
river valley, by securing this outlet to the j
northland. Toe feasibility of navigation !
from Ifargo to Fort York was also conMd- {
ered, and it was shown that by thi3 chenp-1
er mode of egress, in the open mss j
navigation can now be had ali the way '
except a few miles of rapids od the Nel- !
son which would have to be circumvented j
by canal or portsga. They represent that !
the prospects of the railway froro- Winni
peg to Fcrt York are brilliant, being back
ed by an almost nn&nimou3 sentiment
in Manitoba. The stigg63tion is that a
southern line of read from Cedai Rapids .
or Sioux Falls, or Fargo, or from the !
southwest, couMbe extended to Winnipeg, ;
to connect with the Bay route. Thip, it i 9
apparent, would open a market to the j
south and southwest for the hard wheat •
of this section, -which Mr. Pillabnry claims |
is not wanted by his firm at any price. j
will meot at 4 p. m. and crg^ni'-e, and the
evening session will be devoted to business.
It seems clear from general intimations
that the general charges of the chamber of
oommerce of Grand Forks against the
elevator and shipping eystem, tLat i=>, irre
sponsible and capricious grading, injuri
ous to tho farmer, and indifferent not to
cay dishonest weighing by elevator agents,
will be considered amply demonstrated by
the bundles of affidavits exhibited at the
looal conventions. The responsibility for
this system is charged to the railway
discrimination in favor of the large
el6Tatois. What remedy will be proposed
is yet in uncertainty. Bat competing
lines of transportation are certain to be
considered. It U also apparent that gen
eral and looal organization, with the pur
pose of acting in unison, by way of giving
aid to plausible outlets, will be effected
and advised. Some delegates demand
stringent penal legislation by the general I
assembly, imposing the penalties upon
the agents of the corporations and com
panies for discriminating between ehip
pers in fnrnishing transportation or doing
aay act in violation of r<i;blio duty. This j
)6 by some considered a direct blow at the
very vital point of monopoly.
The farmers are not alone in this move
ment. Merchants and everybody are
aronaed to the questions forced upon them
by the difficulties which hamper the farm
ers iv sheir struggle. Yours, &,o.
