Cooking a Steak Broiled of Course,
Never wash a steak if it can be avoided.
This advice does not meet with the appro
bation of some cooks, but these neat bodies
are very careful if the meat is given a
drenching to wipe It perfectly dry before
cooking. Before you place your steak on
the broiler see that your fire is a glowing
bed of coals, and have close at band butter,
salt, pepper and a hot platter. Now place
the cut on the broiler and drop It upon the
coals for two minutes, when It must be
turned. In this way you secure the juices,
and it is then ready to receive a more
moderate treatment. Watch it constantly,
and turn so dexterously that it will not
smoke or scorch.
Ten minutes is all that is needed for
rare broil. Take a keen blade and cut into
the thickest part. If the heart has lost its
purple tinge transfer at once to the dish.
Sprinkle liberally with bits of butter, salt
and pepper. Unless you have a hot water
-dish do not send the steak in to the table
until all the family are seated. Tough
steak may be mode eatable by laying it on
a board and making slight incisions in the
meat, when, if it is rubbed with the strained

Boarded Cold Found.
A story is told at Martinsville to the
effect that Frederic G. Axt, who died last
week, left to his wife, daughter and son
(10,000 in gold which be had kept carefully
secreted in an old trunk. His son Wil
liam engaged in business with a leather
house in Indianapolis fifteen years ago.
His sister married a Mr. Bernhardt and
preceded him to that city. The father and
mother have lived alone and very econom
ically all that time, as only Germans can.
Mr. Axt revealed the hidden treasure to
his family a few days before his death, and
the trophy was borno off to Indianapolis
and deposited In bank. The family told
friends that they thought he bad a sum of
money secreted, but were surprised at the
lar;e amount. The money was never given

Josephine's Old Horn.
Farther efforts are being made to pre
serve historic Maliiiaison, once the resi
dence of the Empress Josephine, from
falling into the hands of some Nine
teenth century vandal, who would prob
ably demolish it iu order to raise "jerry
built" suburban villas on its site. The
old palace is in a rather bad condition,
being destitute of 1'urniture, tapestry
and proper ornamentation. The two
facades one on the courtyard and the
other on the garden-are in a tolerably
good condition, as well as the windows,
staircases and ceilings.
The rooms might easily bo rearranged
in their old order and style. The vast
porch, the dining room, with its figures
of nymphs, marble floor and fountain,
the council chamber shaped like a mili
tary tent, the library, the salon of the
Empress Josephine, with the bedroom at
tached, are in a fair state of preserva
tion, Malmaison park has already been
cut np for building lots, and several
small houses with gardens now exist on
the property. .
The place was purchased in Septem
ber, 1788, by Josephine, for 6,400 paid
partly out of her marriage portion and
partly out of the military allowance of
her husband, then General Bonaparte.
When First Consul Napoleon spent his
leisure hours at Malmaison, and in the
early days of the First Empire, the place
was for Josephine what the Petit Train
on was for Marie Antoinette an agree
able change from palatial splendor. Af
ter the death of Josephine, in May, 1814,
Malmaison had no occupants of note un
til Napoleon returned there for a few
days before his last exile.
Prince Eugene de Beauharnais looked
after the property during his lifetime,
bnt in 1826 his heirs sold it to a Swedish
banker. In 1841 Queen Maria Christina
of Spain bought it and sold it in 1861 for
44,000 to the Emperor Napoleon III,
who made a present of it to the state,.
Under the third republic Malmaison
has been neglected and allowed to lapse
into its present deplorable condition. It
was sold to private persons and now
awaits other owners. London Tele
Dogs Testifying In Court.
"Hold up your right hand and be
sworn," said Squire Tyrrell, addressing
Hector, a large mastiff, in court in Cin
cinnati. The dog bad been summoned
as a witness, and in compliance with the
magistrate's demand Hector held up his
right f orepaw and commenced barking.
The case was one in which Dr. Buck
proved to the court that Hector and
Dane, another large dog, belonged to
him. The two had strayed away, and
August Schmelt, a saloon keeper, got
possession of them and would not give
them back to the owner.
Dr. Buck had taught the animals cer
tain tricks, one of which was to imitate
a witness giving testimony, and he gave
the magistrate a list of questions.
"Where's your master?" asked the
court of Eector. The dog went to the
rear part of the room and picked out
Dr. Buck from a large crowd of specta
The same question was asked of Dane,
and he went through the same perform
ance. "Where's Dane?" was asked of Hector.
The dog looked at Dane and barked.
"Where's Hector?" was asked of Dane.

Bat-lad la Bis Own Coma.
The late Earl of Essex was buried in a
coffin of oak designed twelve years ago
by the deceased nobleman himself, who
was a prominent member of the Funeral
Reform association. It had what is
called "open trellis work" around it and
was filled with choice herbs and ever
greens. There have been many people
of recent years some of them prominent
in other ways, who have had their cof
fins made to order long before the ap
proach of death. Maybe the originator
of the fashion was Lord Nelson, who
used to keep standing upright in the
cabin of the Victory a coffin that an ad
mirer had presented to him one birthday
anniversary, and in this coffin his lord
ship's remains were at laBt put to rest.
The Pausing of Parties.
No party remains virtuous more than
twenty years. That also is in the nature
of things. Supremacy is demoralizing.
The Democrats now take the govern
ment by order of the popular vote, and
they will keep it so long as they are true
to their trust no longer. When they
become derelict somo other party, no
matter by what name it may be called,
will issue an order of eviction. Ihe

The Restriction of Immigration.
Shall immigratiop be restricted, and,
if so, how and to what extent, is one of
the important questions that will in all
probability occupy the attention of the
coming session of congress. Senator
Chandler, of New Hampshire, is the
chairman of a committee on the sub
ject which is now sitting in this city,
not for the purpose of taking testimony,
but of discussing amendments to the
law. His views on the subject are rad
ical, but not moie so than those of the
Knights of Labor as enunciated by Mr.
The New Hampshire senator and the
general master workman are both of the
opinion that immigration should be pro
hibited for a period of years, Mr. Chan
dler placing the limit at five. "Wages,"
he asserts, "cannot be maintained up to
their present standard in this country
unless immigration is stopped. If wages
are reduced the Democrats will be swept
out of power by popular sentiment."
He adduces these as reasons why, were
he a Democrat, he should vote for the
five years' suspension.
Republicans and Democrats are alike
interested in the preservation of the re
public, in its growth, progress, develop
ment, on sure, broad, steady, time en
during lines. To that end let us all
unite. The republio should be the first
care of every American, no matter to
what party he belongs. New York Recorder.
Sums Wagered on the Tnrf.
There are no data obtainable in this
country upon which even a remote ap
proximation could be made as to the
total of the sums wagered in tne cours
of the year upon turf events. That it is
large may be safely assumed; but we
should doubt much whether the French,
in their comparatively recent fervor for
betting upon horse races, have not
largely exceeded the amounts wagered
in this country.
The figures given by a Pans corre
spondent show shat 10 per cent, levied
on all sums staked in the Pari-Mutuel
machines amounted for the last four
months of last year to 2,026,859 francs,
representing a total wagered of 101,842,
950 francs or over 4,050,000 in four
months. This of course is altogether ir
respective of the sums wagered at the
clubs or with the large bookmakers, and
represents only the small sums laid on
the course with the smaller men of that
class. London Tit-Bits.

PLANTING FISH IN THE GULF.
An Association In Mew Orleans for the
Encouragement of Game Fish.
There will be many more fish in the gulf
by and by. The Gulf Fishermen's Protect
ive association will see to this. Through
the influence of this association there have
already been placed in the streams that
lead into Bay St. Iouis 4,uuu,uuu oi young
shad. These were planted by the United
States fish commission. For a long time
the commission refused to furnish the
young fish. The reason for the refusal was
that there were no party or partie respon
sible for the protection of the fish. Then
the Gulf Fishermen's Protective associa
tion came into existence and agreed to
shoulder the responsibility. Now there
are 4,000,000 of young shad saving up, in
Dick Swivellcr's language, lor epicure.
The Fishermen's association was organ
ized not a very long time ago under the
laws of the state of Mississippi. It is a

The Mayor Want to See Thee,"
A young man had been to sea, and on
bis return was narrating to his uncle an
adventure which he had met with on board
' ship. ,
"I was one night leaning over thetaff
rail, looking down into the ocean," said
the nephew, who was called William,
'"when my gold watch fell from my chain
and immediately sank out of sight. The
ship was going ten knots an hour, but,
nothing daunted, I sprang over the rail,
down, down, and after a long search found
the watch, came up, and chased the ship
and climbed back to the deck without any
one knowing I had been absent."

four inches long now. They were put in
Wolf river and the other tributaries of
Bay St. Louis. They cannot be touched
until three years after birth of the spawn.
I guess there will be trouble about them
after they are two years old, as they will
then be of pretty good size. Some of the
fishermen wanted to do me up because I
organized the Fishermen's association.
They said that it was a shame to plant all
those fish just for rich men to catch on a
line. They were very much surprised
when I explained to them that shad do not
take the bait.
The little fish have gone away up to the
headwaters of the rivers now, so as to es
cape the avidity of the larger fish. We will
have to be very careful for some time with
the shad until they begin to spawn on their
own account. When they begin to do that
it will be pretty hard to exterminate tbem,
It has been computed that a shad has
about a million eggs. Of course we don't
save that many; probably not half or a
third as many. But even if one fish can
succeed in being the ancestor at one lay oi
15,000 or 20,000 of young ones, why, you see,
she is doing pretty well.
The fish commission are going to plant
salmon trout and whiteflsh in the waters.
They are game fish, very game fish. Those
salmon trout have the largest mouths you
ever saw. They are enormous. A green
trout's doesn't approximate to it. Theii
beads are orange color, and when you see
them strike in the sunlight it looks just
like a big bail of gold rolling over the wa
ter. Whiteflsh are very popular in the
northern lakes. In Minnesota and that
country you can go almost anywhere and
catch a good mess of wnitensn in no time.
They are as white as a cuff, both as tc
skin and meat, and are excellent for the
By the way, speaking of green trout
reminds me of the fact that one of the
aims of the Gulf Fishermen's association
will be to perpetuate these. They are not
green trout, you know; they are nothing
more nor less than black bass. But they
are excellent fish for the sportsman a;
well as for the cook. I can raise those fel
lows like chickens. Give me a bayou, and
before you know it I'll have it alive witb
green trout. The Gulf Fishermen's asso
elation will look after the culture of greet
