THE APPETITE OF BREAD.
Paxil Cerrapoidonee f the New Orlaaai Pie
arai. Did you know that bread wan not
only eaten, but eats? Darwiu has told
us that wime flowers enjoy a porter
lioue fteak. how II. Ischeurer Kets
rer assures us bread has a nigger's par
tiality for hogs aud hominy. The dis
covery is interesting to dyspeptics, for
bread can be made to do the work of
the alimentary canal and relieve dys
peptics of all bother except mere de-
g u it on ana 01 course, paying me
bakers bill, which is harder work
than digestion. science has since
found that several vegetable juices, or
gaps, dissolve meat, but M. Scheurer
Kestner is the first person who ob
served that in the process of bread
making a peculiar fermentation takes
place which produces complete diges
tion of meat. A beef steak hashed
fine and mixed with dough containing
yeast disappears entirely by the time
the bread is taken trom the oven
The steak's nutritive principles are
dissolved and incorporated into the
bread. Not the least curious phe
nomenon noticed in these circumstan
ces is that meat, which so rxpidly be
comes putrid, when once incorporated
into bread may be kept longer than
ordinary bread. Bread made in 1873
has been shown at the Academy of
Science; it wasjis sweet and free from
taint as when it came out of the oven
At first M Scheurer Kestner used
raw meat; he mixed one and one-tenth
pounds of flour, one pound of leaven
and three-fourths or a pound ot raw
beef minced fine; water in sufficient
quantity whs added, and the di.ugli wa
lett to terment. in two or three
hours the meat had disappeared. 'I In
bread was then baked as usual. Tin
men t bread had a disagreable, s- r
tasie. To remove itM. Scheurer Kest
ner first boiled the meat in just the
quantity of water necessary to wet h
flour, and used this water in kneading.
The meat should he rid of all fat, and
only salt enough to season the bread
added; for if too much salt be added
the hread will liecome humid (salt he
ing a great absorlier of water) and
spoil. The objection to this ! re:ul
is that it is insipid. If bacon be used
instead of beef the objection is remov
ed. Veal, too, makes a dilicious meat
bread. All these breads may le used
t make soup. Cut in slices one
sixth of a pound of this bread, put
the slices in a quart of water, salt to
taste and boil frr twenty minute.
Fruit in Illinois.

All fiuit at Alto Pass and vicinity

At Anna there are low places where
all kinds have lieen killed, but Mr.

It is sometimes interesting to lean
what is thought of individuals in
their own family. We naturally look
to such outspoken, independent, and
influential journals as the limes and
the Tribune to find out what is the
real estimate in the Republican fami
ly ot the men conspicuous just at pres
ent as candidates for the Republican
nomination for President.
On the Bame day, by a curious co
incidence, one of these journals gives
to the public its estimate of General
Grant, and the ther its estimate ot
Mr. John Sherman.
Thus the Tribune, referring to
General Grant, says:
"If it is the duty of the party tj
give the country a pure govern
ment, can it do nothing better than
return to the methods of General
Grunt's administration ? If it is the
duty of the party to maintain the
honor of the nation, can it say with
truth that its full duty was done dur
ing the eight years of peace which
witnessed no preparation whatever
for resumption ? If it is the duty of
the party, as it surely is, to protect
the citizens in their rights, to put
down assassination, outrage and
fraud, and to defend the enfranchised
colored people from the oppresioi 8
which have caused an exodus, a

methods which, for eight years of
wretchedness, lawlessness, and mas
sacre, we tried so vainly ? We know
what two terms of Paesidcnt Grant
did for the colored people and their
rights, for the loyal men of the South,
for the purification of the govern
ment. H is the Republican party
any right to say that it can do no
better, or any excuse for hoping a
third term will succeed where iww

While this is perfectly true, the
remark at this lime reminds us ot a
little occurrence at a dinner table
many years ago. An ancient and
proud spirited son of the Old Domin

"I am proud," said he, "to reply to
a toast to Virginia, the mother, as
she is, of heroes, statesmen ai.d
