ling acquaintance wlth tbe rarlous cuts
of meat, The fact is espeeially brought
Ihome to her when, looking over the

' the hooks or in the icebox back of h m,
|she fails to recognize among the large
, pieces anything familiar; then, notmg

or baking, it is not a difficult taak to
learn to recognr/e the different pieces

pive a little thoughtful study and time
to the matter.
The beef rarcass usually make* i'
appearance upon the marketman'..
counter cut into four quarters. From
these the various smaller cuts ar-'
taken as they are needed. The choicest
cuts are generally considered the first
and second prime ribs, tbe sirloin and
the tenderloin fillet, for roasting; the
porterhouse, sirloin and Deimonico cuts
for steaks. while the round and neck
are best to use in casserole dishes. Ot
course, there are many other useful
cuts to be had, but those flrst men?
tioned are the most costly. The rump,
navel, brisket, plate and round are usu
ally corned. A chuck roast ia BWOOt
and good, though the meat is a little
bit coarser graine.l than the more BB*
