In high Siamese circles it is ascer
tained that the King is suffering from
fever, the real cause of his ailment

Of icebergs, ten miles high,
And snow so deep that a man could

Oh, for a polar sea in town,
Where a man could swim all day,
And sleep at night in the moon's cold
On an ice floe in the bay.
Oh, for a sea of lemonade,
Ice cold, which he might quail.
Ob, for a cold-cold-cold-wave flag;
And the North Pole for a stafT.

One of the secrets of palatable
food 13 knowing how to cook water.
The secret 13 to put fresh filtered
water into a clean kettle already
warm, to let it boil quickly and to
use it the instant it is boiled. To
let it steam and simmer means to
have a combination of lime, iron
and dregs in the kettle and all the
good water evaporated into air.
It is surprising that many house
keepers, otherwise neat and partic
ular, seem to think that a kettle
will stay clean without active
measurers on their part. The mere
fact that nothing but water is boil
ed in it does not guarantee it
against the need of scouring. It
will soon become coated with a
rusty-looking layer of sline, unless
it receives the same care as other
cooking utensils. Food cooked
with water which is not properly
boiled or which is boiled in a ket
tle coated with dregs has not the
same flavor that properly cooked
food has. Moreover, it is danger
ous to health.
