In the United States Circuit Court yesterday authorized Messrs. Joline and Robinson, receivers of the New York City and Metropolitan Street Railway companies, to cancel the leases between those companies and the CenWal Park North & East River Railroad, known as the "Belt Line." and the 2Sth and 29th street road. These lines, the receivers said, had been operated rt a heavy loss. In his opinion Judge Lacombe orders that, the leased lines be turned over to the companies which orginally controlled them. Those companies practi cally went out of existence when their luu-s were leased to the Metropolitan and will be unable to operate the roads now. having no cars, horses or power plant. Cancellation of the leases eventually will cut off the transfers between those lines snd the lines of the New York City Railway Company, if the leaped lines be operated in future. It will throw back on those companies old debts assumed at the time of the leases which the Metro- I>olitan and New York City Railway Company neg lected to settle, and may mean the annulment of the franchises of the "Belt Line" and the 2Sth and 2Sth street road. Judge Lacombes opinion on the Central Park. North & Bast River Railroad declared thai exami nation of its books for the year ended March 31. |*M showed total operating expenses of $607.81»6 20, with expenditures for taxes other thun special franchise taxes, of PUttW. and for rent of equip ment $16iKK>. """he franchise tax in litigation amounted to M7.090 6s. and this amount could b« reduced somewhat if the decision were favorable to the company. Opposes counsel, said the court, termed these figures excessive, and the manage ment of the road profitable, but the court was in cUnad to take the word of its receivers, hut irre ■oecUve of all that, -the net earnings of the lease hold amount to W.CBM SW. while the rent agreed to be paid is 8162.000. a net annual loss of over MB ■►»•■■ Cancellation of Ibass lea.es. the opinion goes on. will not work any material hardship on the exist ing public, since paasengers can be carried for a tingle fare from those districts by other lines.

Several Recipes Recommended by Famous Cooks— How to Select This Vegetable. Dietitians say that asparagus contains much nu triment, is very digestible and easily assimilated, even by invalids, though It Is not -good for persons With a. gouty tendency. When selecting this vegetable remember that if the cut end is brown and dry. and the heads bent toward one aide it Is stale. Of course asparagus Is at its be-t when fresli from the garden, but It can be kept fairly well for one or two days by petting the lower part of the stalks in cold water. There arc several pood ways to cook asparagus. Ordinary boiled asparagus may be nerved with a hollandaise, mousseline. drawn butter, vinaigrette. maltese or cream sauce. If the vegetable is of especially fine quality, it is delicious merely sea soned and served on toast that has been moist ened with melted butter and a little of the as paragus liquor — the water it was cooked in. Be fore cooking remove a small part— about an Inch — from the lower end of ea h stalk, where it is hard and coarse *Wash the stalks carefully and tie them together again in bundles. Some cooks let asparagus lie in cold water for a little while be fore cooking. Others believe that the kettle nsed for boiling should be deep enough to aliow-the bundles of asparagus to stand up straight. This keeps the tender tips, which cooli so much quicker than the stalks, out of water. Still other cooks keep the tips of the vegetable out of water for only the first ten minutes of. cooking. The color of the vegetable is generally supposed to keep better if the smallest possible pinch of baking soda be added to the water. I^et the vegetable cook twenty minutes or till tender, not till soft or spongy. Instead of tying in bundle, the vegetable may be cut in inch piece*, then the tips, as they get done, may he removed from the water before the other pieces.
