To Cook a Husband.—M any good
husbands are spoiled in the cookiDg —
Some women appear to think husbands
are bladders and therefore to be blown
up ; others keep them constantly in hot
water ; some freeze them by conjugal
coolness ; some cover them with a brine
of jealousy ; some keep them always in
pickle All these serve them up with
tongue sauce. Husbands are always
sour, or bitter, or tough, when cooked
in this manner. The following recipe
is warranted to render them sweet and
tender: Put youfe husband in the jar
of faithfulness ; place it near the fire of
conjugal love ; keep the fire bright and
clear and the heat constant ; cover biqt
with affection and deference, spiced With
chéerfulnesa ; kind kisses morning and
servo warm with truthfulness.
If husbands cooked in this way are not
good, they are of the hard-shell variety
and should be thrown away.— Ex
