By L. E. Chittenden. After T learned to cook most things very well, T still held aloof from bread making, as of something so laborious and uncertain THE HONOLULU TIMES. and altogether mysterious that I feared to attempt it. But the cooks in the kitchen were too often failures in respect to bread making, and we despised baker's bread; hence it came to pass that in the interim between cooks, I came across a recipe of Mrs. Rorer's which read so intelligently and included no all-night settings and early risings and indefinite results; so I resolved to try this apparently simple formula, with a resolution privately made, that if it was a failure I'd say nothing about it, but cast the failure into the furnace and preserve a golden and discreet silence in regard to my attempt. That was nine years ago, and I have met with na failure then or since, and as a proud and happy reward have earned the unique tribute from my husband that my bread is "even better than his mother's." And I know praise can no further go than this! This is the way I make it. When breakfast is almost ready, I put a cake of compressed yeast to soak in three tablespoonfuls of tepid water. In the mixing crock I put one pint of milk and a lump of butter the size of a walnut. I set this crock in the warm oven leaving the oven door open, and go to breakfast; when I come out, the butter has spread over the surface of the milk. I add a pint of cool water, a teaspoonful of salt, a' tablespoonful of sugar, then if the mixture is luke warm I stir in the yeast and a quart of flour. I beat the batter hard for five minutes and stir in a quarter or more of flour, enough to knead it into a mass. I turn it onto a well-floured board and knead for fifteen minutes ; I grease my crock and set where it is warm. I place bread within, cover with a close, set it in a warm place, and let it rise three hours. Then T mix into four loaves and let rise one hour more, and bake 45 minutes. Whole wheat flour bread I make the same way except hat I mix whole wheat flour with the white, one-half of each. If I wish rolls for breakfast I leave out enough for one loaf; this I roll out and spread with melted butter, cut out with small biscuit cutter, let rise- one-half hour longer than the bread, bake 30 minutes, and warm through the next morning by covering pan with a well-fitted cover and watching carefully not to let them get too brown. Or I add sugar, cinnamon, a cup of currants, and a little melted shortening, and mold into larger shapes for buns, or bake altogether in a flat pan for coffee-cake or Sally Lunn, wetting the top with egg or milk, and sprinklink with sugar ond cannimon. A cup of boiled rice added to bread sponge makes it deliciously sweet and nutritive. In fact, any of the cooked breakfast foods, if not too stiff, add nutrition and a delightful nutty flavor to the bread. 1 1 AN INSTANCE.

"Just fancy," exclaimed Bridget; "accordin' to this whin a mon loses wan av 'is sinses another gits more developed.

Journal: A pathetic message was received by Dr. Gould of Rockland recently from that lonely place called Dr. Gould has a system of pigeons which convey message from there to the mainland, and on Saturday there came a pigeon to the homing loft at Tenant's Harbor conveying news of the serious illness of Mrs. E. A. Young. The silent messenger that flew across twenty miles of seas to Tenant's Harbor was found to have seven No. 1 shot imbedded this injury, by a thoughtless sportsman,' the bird had flown across with her message, and, true to instinct, the bird had delivered her message. Shortly after the homecoming the bird died.
