Nasty News Denounced.
An able paper was read by Mr. Phillips,

Editor to His Constituents."
He denounced the publication of nasty
news that Is unfit to be read In tho
family circle and spoke especially of tho
duty of, an editor to print tho now.s fairly.

editorial In The TImes-Dlspatch on that
- subject.

paper on "The Press, the Pulpit and the
Politician," nnd Editor Daniels, of the
Raleigh News and Observer, delivered a

This address was one of tho ablest and
mobt entertaining of any delivered during

In the afternoon the editorial com?

"Thc Gorman Soclnllsts would uso the

The Imperial government cannot refrain
from using the means at Its disposal to
prevent the party from seeking to de?

The French forbade Herr Bobel from

German government prohibited Horr Btlob,
a member of tho Reichstag, from speak?

Tho popular prejudice against snails
is Incomprehensible when tlfe favor of
oysters Is considered. In many' London
restaurants, particularly In Soho. snails
now figure on tho dully menu. This Is
an Imported taste from France, but in
the west country 'Snails are highly es?
teemed by tho lower classes.
As a matter of fact the snail Is ex?
tensively eaten In Somerset and Glou?
cestershire both'''as a dainty, and a
medicine. There arc men who malic a
living by collecting snails and selling
thorn under the name of "wall fish."
Boiled In their,..shells they are plckod
out and eaten, w.lt'h bread and butter,
being accounted a great.luxury and very
Frogs, lire another dainty which preju?
dice denies to the Englishman, though In
the United States and Canada they are
esteemed as'highly as in France.
Spasmodically a sturgeon Is offered for
sale In London', and the 'accident of Its
capture affords a novel dish which should
not be passed by. Cut and cooked us a
cutlet It tastes rather like veal, with?
out a suspicion of fish nbout It.
In Germany bear's flesh Is greatly fa?
vored, and smoked boar tongues, ham and
sausages are both appetizing and expen?
Ever since Paris, in tho slego of 1870
'71, was driven to eating up the animals
at the zoo camel's flesh has been de?
manded by French gourmets. Remark?
ably like beof in appearance it la ns
tender n.s veal, and thero are Parisians
who Import it regularly from Algeria.
On the same testimony lion steaks
are reported to be only moderate eat?
ing, while tiger Is both tough and sinewy,
Jaguar- flesh, however, Is delightfully
white and toothsome, and alligators and
crocodiles provide a mevil of the most
delicate flavor, midway between that of
veal nnd pork.
Why should not goat flesh be Intro?
duced into the bill of fare? It Is good
eating, as Robinson Crusoe and Don
Juan testify. In France it is largely
eaten, Paris alone requiring 100,000 goats
annually for the table.
Our neighbors also enjoy the donkoy,
whoso flesh, when killed young resembles
that of the turkey, though of mluch finer
Though a hlppophoglc banquet arranged
by tho Into Sir Henry Thompson, was
held In London sOme years ago, It Is
?still almost dangerous to suggest horse
flesh to an Englishman as food. In
reality. It Is very excellent eating, and
only prejudice can gainsay the fact.
"It wns In Paris," wrote Mr, Van
dnm, the author of "An Engllshmon In
Purls," "that I learned how the cat had

This testimony the writer can person?
ally corroborate, having recently been In?
vited to n dinner given by n gourmet
of eccentric tastes. The dish of tho
evening was "Chat aux Champignons."
Soaked in white vinegar, with aromatic'
herbs, .and cooked In red wino, tho cat
mado a most savory dish, and after tho
prejudice of the first mouthful, ono was
behind to admit Its succulence nnd flavor.
Another neglected article of food Is
the guinea pig. Woro tho edible virtues
of the hedgehog known It would rival
ortolans In epicurean favor.
Snakes, being rare In England, are
nlmost unknown ns food, but In southern
Franco there Is a snake which Is exten?
sively sold, prepared for cooking under
the nnmo of hedge eel. Indeed, those
who onjoy eels can scarcely .shudder at
stowed snake. Frank Bucklnnd onco

enjoyed It, tho flesh being exceedingly
white nnd firm, not unlike veal In taste.

Professor Hodges, of Massachu?
setts, Experimenting.
Dr. Clifton F. Hodge, professor of biol?
ogy, at Clark University, Is having re?
markable success In his efforts toward
domesticating tho ruffed grouse, or par?
tridge. The latest uchlevomopt Is tho
raining of a second generation of the
birds while they aro In captivity, five
strolls healthy birds having boon hatched
two Weeks ago by tho mother partridge.
More could scarcely bo deslrod than
to" have a pair mate nnd produco their
young l*i tho backyard of a olty homo.
So far as Is known tho birds have noted
exactly .the same as tholr brothers I 111
tho woods, oven, to the curious aot of
drumming. They are Just as largo as
those In the woods and aro lively 'nnd
contented. One of tho old male birds
seems to bo especially delighted when
Dr. Hodge enters tho onclosuro In which
they aro kept una plays with tho bird as
ono would with his pot cat. In no
other case, so far ns Is known, has
this species been anywhoro near so per?
fectly domesticated,
Dr. Hodge began thoso experiments In
tho spring of 1003, when ho obtained
some partridge eggs from tho woods and
hatched them out under a bantam lion.
At tho tlmo ho wns laughed at for try?
ing It. But nfter tho chicks were hatch?
ed out, and It was soon that they wore
being raised, a member of'the Massa?
chusetts Fish and Game Protective As?
sociation who resides In Worcostor re?
ported tho affair to a mooting of the
directors, which then voted $200 to be
given to. Dr. Hodgo In aid of'his ex?
Ho Is using It In .enlarging his en?
closures with a view to aiding such work
^ns tho association Is doing,'especially by
ttvontually sotting tho birds free In the
covers of tho' State and perhaps In our
city parks. Dr. Hodge's purposo In the
experiments, so far mi his own work Is
concerned, is more especially to study
scientifically tho biological relations ol
the species?its foods, habits, and In?
stincts and tho possibilities of Its do?
iiiehtocatlon.?Boston Trnnsorlpt.
