Magnify a flake of Toasted Wheat and note its translucent heat-browned
structure. The quadruple cooking to which it has been subject has dried
every pore and portion of it. The "pastiness" of the starch of the wheat
does not exist in this greatest of all foods because the starch has been
"heat-digested" and thereby converted into dextrine, ready for imme
diate assimilation to Blood, Bone, Brain and Brawn. This food does not
become a pasty mass when moistened. ?.(?

Sportal Correspondence of The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, September 9, 1901.
The Jewish holiday season will begin on
Friday evening, when the Introductory
New Year services will take place In every
Jewish house of worship. The Jewish year
begins on the first day of the month of
Tisrl. There are thousands of Jews in
New York who never go to a synagogue
except aA. this time of the year, when the
chief religious festival takes place, and for
that reason the synagogues are taxed to
their utmost capacity. Besides the 300,000
Jews who live in New York room must be
provided for thousands who live In places
where there are no synagogues, and who
wish to We united with their people In
prayer at the New Year festival. The
synagogues are inadequate to hold the peo
ple who wish to attend, and temporary
meeting places have been furnished for the
accommodation of the great overflow.
There are some of these In the tenement
house district, but there are more in the
upper residence part of New York. The
Grand Central Palace, the Turner halls,
Tammany Hall, Salvation Army headquar
ters, nearly all of the Harlem and York
ville dancing schools and dance halls,
scores of lodging rooms and unoccupied
lofts have been engaged by enterprising
people, who have had the halls furnished
with chairs and benches, platforms for the
cantor, and in same instances with a pul
pit for a lecturer and space for a chair.
Tickets are sold by the managers of these
places at prices ranging from $1 to $5 for
the "season." which includes the New
Year, the Day of Atonement and the
Feast of Tabernacles, services which all
come within a period of about two weeks.
Croker En Route fiome.
Now that Richard Croker is on the high
seas en route for New York his henchmen
are all expectancy. There will be a great
welcome for the boss when he gets -home.
All the vessels of the municipal navy will
bi pressed into service to take the braves
down the bay, and the pier will be lined
with the men who want to have talks with
him and who want to have them before
others see him. During the last two or
three years it has come to be believed In
Tammany that the man who gets the Cro
ker ear first is the man who makes the
deepest impression, and that his mind once
made up there is little use in trying to
change it. Last year, it will be remem
bered, Mr. Croker made up his mind that
he was going to have a plurality for Bry an
of 73.0i>o below the Harlem. He told this
in the most solemn manner to a number of
eminent democrats. He became very angry
at some of his advisers who told him that
ho could not hope to have such a plurality,
and one of them has never been fully re
ceived into the good graces of Croker since.
Croker's love of the mysterious has de
veloped to such a degree that no man in
this country knows what his present plans
are.
The Com Ink Yacht Race*.
There is some discussion among yachts
men as to the efTect the attempted assas
sination of President McKinley may have
on the International cup races. It is cer
tain that unless the President's condition
improves before the date set for the con
tests the races will be postponed, and in
the event of the wounds proving fatal will
possibly be abandoned altogether. In the
latter event, disappointing as It would be
to both the Irish sportsmen and yachtsmen
here. Sir Thomas Llpton would probably
sail back with his fleet quite possibly never
to try again to lift the famous cup. Inter
national yacht races were held in 1881, the
year of Garfield's assassination. President
Garfield died September 10, and the races
which were between the Mischief and the
Atlanta, a Canadian boat, were not held
until November 9 and 10. The races at
that time, however, were not of such wide
spread interest. Owing to the uncertainty
of weather conditions so late in the year an
abandonment of the races would be more
probable at this time than mere postpone
ment.
Money Value of a Title.
The money value of a title in other than
a matrimonial market is illustrated by the
policy of an old-established manufacturing
business in this city, which sells its prod
ucts all over Europe. This business has
been controlled for many years by one
i family. The present manager, Mke his
, father, is very democratic, but for business
reasons he continues the policy establlsh?-d
by his fathwr. No agents are employed
abroad except men with titles. This is
easily to arrange in Germany and France
and Russia, but it sometimes causes in
convenience in England. A titled agent on
the continent, no matter how poor he may
be, can usually get a hearing in a business
house easier than the man without the
title. No bogus titles are allowed, and the
company's list of foreign agents reads like
a court circular.
Outlook of Bane Ball.
Those who have made a close study of
professional base ball In this city, say the
public cannot hope to see much improve
ment in the condition in Harlem as long
as "Andy" Freedman continues in charge
of the New York club. Those who know
Croker's friend say that he never took a
real interest in base ball, and that he
never will. Base ball, they say, is full of
sentiment and local pride. The people of a
city feel a sort of proprietary Interest in
the team which takes the name of their
home town. This is what largely makes
base ball the great sport it Is today. Sev
eral advantageous offers have been made
to Mr. Freedman to dispose of his stock
in the last three years, but the price he
puts on the stock he purchased so cheaply
from E. B. Talcott in 1*>4 Is such that a
business man could not listen to the DroD
osition. v
Bulls lu a British Court.
From the Loudon Li lobe.
Three particularly good "bulls" were per
petrated In the Southward police court yes
terday. The Judge himself uttered the first.
"I must," he said, "hear as much light as
I can get on this subject." It Is not sur
prising that a solicitor should feel Justified
in following such a lead. "My friend, your
honor, wrote, "Notwithstanding the de
fendant was present, judgment was given
In his absence.' "
The third was perpetrated by a witness,
a butcher's driver, who, in answer to a
barrister's query as to the pace at which
he was driving, replied: "From six to eight
miles an hour, but not exceeding seven."
Even this hardly beats a contemporary,
which said in a recent issue: "Dr. Bencraft,
speechless with delight, made a long speech
from the pavilion stairs."
Seeing and Knowing.
From the Boston Courier.
An eminent Justice who was trying a
rIght-of-Way cape had before him a wit
ness, an old farmer, who was proceeding
to tell the Jury that he had knowed the
path for sixty year, and my feyther towld
I as heard my grandfeyther say "
"Stop!" cried the judge. "We can't have
any hearsay evidence here."
"Noi!" exclaimed Farmer Giles. "Then
how dost know who thy feyther was, 'cept
by hearsay?"
After the laughter had subsided the judge*
said:
"In courts of law we can only be guided
by what you have seen with your own
eyes, and nothing more nor less."
"Oh, that be Mowed for a tale!" replied
the farmer. "I ha' got a bile on the back
of my neck, and I never seed 'un, but I be
prepared to swear he's there, dang "un!"
This second triumph on the part of the
witness set In a torrent of hearsay evi
dence about the footpath, which obtained
weight with the Jury, albeit the judge told
them It was not testimony of any value,
and the farmer's party won.

Following close upo?i rthe berry season
comes the larger and more luscious fruits.
The best-liked and choicest of these is the
peach. When allowed Jtc^ripen naturally R
Is a morsel fit for bet?*r, beinga than men.
Kissed by the sun and wet by the dew un
til tt reaches the perfeetfem of ripeness, It
migiit well have been the fruit that tempt
ed our first family to risk chances of evic
tion from their original holdings. When
the peach is to be eaten from the hand or
peeled, sliced and suggared, select the very
ripest and finest, using the less perfect for
compotes, peach desserts or marmalade.
Use the peach in Its uncooked state when
ever possible, as cooking destroys much of
the delicate flavor that makes it so pleas
ing to the taste. Many prefer the clingstone
peach, considering it superior In flavor but
mors depends on the soli and locality in
which the fruK is cultivated than the va
riety. When the peach Is cooked with the
stone it has a richer flavor, and therefore
for spicing, pickling and brandy peaches
the clingstone Is best.
The Plana.'
The plum does no* in any respect equal
the peach, but still ranks as a general
favorhe. Like the peach, the flavor is not
improved by cooking, but it Is only fit to be
eaten fresh when well ripened; avoid over
ripe plums as much as those that are too
green, when served au naturel. and also
reject the skins when uncooked. When
serving peaches, apricots, plums and pears
whole, decorate them with the green leaves
when obtainable, or place under the dish
or basket holding the fruit a mat of dark
green ferns, as a suggestion of green adds
much to their beauty.
Peach Trifle.
Cut stale sponge cake Into thin slices and
arrange alternate layers of sliced peaches
sprinkled with sugar and the slices of cake
in a deep glass dish. Pour over this a cus
tard made of the yolks of three eggs, four
tablespoonfuls of sugar and two cups of
?#I15uflavo^ vanlla. Make a meringue
of the whites of the eggs and six table
spoons of powdered sugar; heap this on top
of the pudding; sprinkle over it shredded
cocoanut or a few chopped toasted almonds
and serve very cold.
Cream of Peach Sherbet.
Put one quart of rich milk in a double
lwiler over the Are. add a cup of granulated
sugar and stir until dissolved; cook ten
minutes, then set aside to cool. Put suffl
quantity of peaches through a veg
etable press or coarse sieve to make one
with f m.V: , > cold milk and flavor
almond or a few pounded
peach kernels. Freeze same as sherbets.
Peach Souffle.
Rub six or eight fine ripe peaches through
a coarse sieve into a bowl; add a cup of
powdered sugar sifted free from lumps and
the yolks of three eggs well beaten; whip
l^.1' together for five or ten minutes.
i whites of six eggs very stilt and
fold in carefully until well mixed. Turn
into the souffle dish, sprinkle the top with
powdered sugar and bake in a hot oven

Add two teaspoons of baking powder and
one teaspoon of salt to two cups of sifted

of butter cut into small pieces, and rub
thoroughly into the flour; then add grad

that will roll out easily Into a rather thin
ut,i?ut ,wlth a large biscuit cutter;
with the thumb and finger make a hollow
in the center of each biscuit, raising up the
sides to form a cup like a tart shell; fill
each shape with the peeled half of a peach
with the round side up; set the dumplings
on a buttered tin and place in a hot oven
and bake until the peaches are soft. Serve
hot with cream and sugar.
Plain Bavarian Cream.
Cover half a package of gelatine with
half a cup of cold water and soak until
the gelatine is soft, about ten minutes.
Stew a pint of ripe plums in a syrup made
of one cup of water and half a cup of su
gar until tender; then put through a vege
table press or sieve. Dissolve the gelatine
o\er boiling water. Whip and drain a pint
or cream; add the gelatine to the plums;
mix and turn into a porcelain-lined basin
a pan ?' cracked ice. Stir until
it begins to thicken, then fold In carefully
the whipped cream; when thoroughly mix

haiden. Serve with whipped, sweetened
cream.
Plum Trifle.
Cut damson plums in half and cook un

the pulp through a coarse sieve; to a cup
of the pulp when cold add the whites of
four eggs beaten to a stiff froth; fill small
glass cups half full of vanilla custard and
when cold put a large spoonful of the trifle
on top, heaping it up roughly. Serve very
cold.
Plum Catsup.
W ash and drain four quarts of damson
plums; coverwith a quart of water and cook
slowly until tender, then press through
a sieve, rubbing through as much pulp and
skin as you can; return to the kettle; add
three-quarters of a pound of sugar, two
level teaspoons of cinnamon, a half tea
spoon of allspice and one of ground cloves:
simmer gerrtly until as thick as tomato

FACULTIES OF THE CHINESE.
Undeveloped Seniles Whleh Stand in
the Way of Civilisation.
From the North China Herald.
Chinese civilization has been affirmed and
denied with equal vigor. There are those
who see in the teaching of Confucius und
the practice of his pupils something higher
than the more spiritual doctrine of Christ
is ever likely to produce; there are others
who deny to China all right or title to
civilization or culture. Between these two
extremes truth lies.
We propose to approach the question
from the physical side. Thought, imagina
tion, mental and moral considerations of
every kind are to be put aside and ques
tions asked and answered by the body it
self. What are its tastes, its likes and
dislikes? How does it demean itself so far
as its senses are concerned? WTiat is its
stage of development? Every individual
man has gone through in his own experi
ence the whole chapter of evolutionary
history. WThat his delights were as a child
are not his delights today; he has outlived
them. If we were to take him back to his
childhood, or, better still, take note of his
own little one, what do we find with regard
to his sense of hearing for example? Is
not the chief characteristic a love of noise?
Does he not revel in the boom of can
non, the crackle of fireworks, the clash of
cymbals and the roll of drums? And have
we not at every celebration .of the Chinese
new S'ear proof that the native, so far as
his auditory sensations are concerned, has
not got beyond the stage of European child
hood? Does he not shut himself up for
hours at a stretch and hammer away at
an orchestra composed entirely of gongs,
cymbals and tom-tom3? And would it not
be utterly impossible for him to do any
thing of the kind had his evolution reached
the stage of the European?
So with color. There are symptoms of a
higher development of the eye than of the
ear in China. Exquisite shades of tilks,
beautiful tints of porcelain anil an unerr
ing ey<$ for scenery?witness the position
of scores of Buddhist temples?are proofs
that the Chinese race are advancing in the
aesthetic culture of the organ of sight.
But having said so much, we have said all.
Where in China is the beauty perceivable
in a European city? Where is there an
attempt at street architecture? Why do so
many hundreds of natives offend the eye
with the inconformity of colors in their
dress? Where is European 'deanlirt>ss to
be found in house and home? There is none.
In discrimination of vision, as well as in
hearing, the Chinese are behind the peo
ples of the west. Evil sights do not of
fend them.
It is hardly necessary to draw attention
to their deficiency in the olfactory sensa
tions. except where disinfectants are em
ployed. It is a curious fact that the Chi
nese who will bear, apparently in happy
unconsciousness, the foulest exhalations of
decayin ganimal or vegetable matter, are
sensitive to the smell of carbolic acid,
which, as a rale, they cordially dislike.
Most foreign" residents in China find the
protection of a handkerchief an absolute
necessity when passing even through a
village, but the native is so impervious to
odors of the eastern type as to be quite
ignorant that there is anything amiss. In
the development of the olfactory nerves,
therefore, it would seem that the native
is even behind the youngest of foreign chil
dren, who at quite an early age resent
anything offensive in that respect.
Closely connected with smell is taste.
Here agai& the Chinese oannot claim any
very high standard. There are some things
they cook admirably, and some of their
flavors and sauces are of high order. But
as every householder knows, these things
if higher promise hare to be WlsnosJ
against others, against viands which at
times scent the whole neighborhood. Traces
of this stage temain among ourselves in
the taste for "high" game, Limburg^r
cheese, and the like.
Coming lastly to the sense of feeling, we
find a paradoxical state of affairs, with
natives whose sense of touch is as nice as
that of the most cultured European, and
with others who will bear the severest sur
gical operations without flinching. We
know of an operation for the removal of a
finger nail which was done without any
help from anaesthetics. Our surgeons
could tell endless stories of the like kind.
At one time this power to bear was put
down to fortitude, but the more probable
explanation is .a less sensitive nervous or
ganization.
Is there anything to be learned from these
considerations? Do they not explain much
that has occurred within the pant twelve
months? Have not the Chinese been acting
merely in accordance with the promptings
of their nature, as it- is, and shall we not
be making a grave error if we try to force
upon them with too great suddenness a
kind of civilization for which as yet they
are not adapted?
SEW YORK'S KOHKKiX DISTRICTS.
Part* of tlie City Where Naturalised
Citizens Outnumber the "Xatlve*.
From the Now York Sun.
The total registration of voters in New
York city last year was 640,000. Of the
voters who took part in the presidential
election In New York county 220,000 were
native born and 144,000 naturalized citizens.
In Brooklyn, which retains more distinc
tively Its character as an American city,
there were IGO.OOO native and 70,000 natural
ized voters. In Queens the number of na
tive voters was 10,000 and of naturalized
voters 10,000; in Richmond there were i?,800
native and 4,200 naturalized voters. The
proportion of naturalized voters in the
whole city is 36 per cent and of native-born
voters 64 per cent.
In seven assembly districts of New York
only, all of them except one on the east
side of the town north of Chatham Square
and south of 14ih street, do foreign-born
voters preponderate, and the disparity is
greatest In the eighth assembly district, in
which, last year, the naturalized voters
numbered 4,000 and the native-born voters
1,200 only.
On the whole west side of New York, as
in Brooklyn, Queens and Richmond, native
born voters preponderate, and the male
aliens of voting age, who number between
75,000 and 80,000, are almost exclusively fn
the east side districts of town, in which the
naturalized voters predominate.
By the census of 1000 the fourth assembly
district had 36,000 more Inhabitants than
its quota for an assembly district, the
eighth had 42,000, the tenth 25,000, the
twelfth 42,000 and the sixteenth 43,000.
There are relatively more unnaturalized
ETnglishmen in New York, qualified for ad
mission to citizenship, than any other for
eign-born residents.
Right* of Chinese Parents.
From tbe China Mall.
The law and custom of China still gives
the parents supreme control over their
children. As far as it is possible for an
outsider to get to know this people, whose
"ways are dark." it does appear that this
power of life and death Is not soften exer
cised unless In the case of Infants. Now
I and again, however, Instances occur which
prove that this barbarous right is it ill
claimed and exercised. A man in the Nam
Hoi district has just put his son to death
in a most cruel fashion, and the law takes
no cognizance of the murder, for surely it
cannot be called by any other name. The
boy had been often reproved for associating
with gamblers and robbers, and his record
was a bad one. This much may be said In
extenuation of the father's diabolical act.
For a long time the father was unable to
lay hands on his son. This he succeeded
iii doing by offering a reward to any one
who could bring him home. During the
day of his return tbe father gave no evi
dence of his wicked designs. This put the
lad off his guard. But when night came
the father threw off his mask, seised his
son. bound him hand and foot, and then
proceeded leisurely to strangle him.
