For fruit cake enough toj'do the
family anv reasonable family for
Christina and Now Year's D.iy, these
things aro iiecpssary: Tvi pounds
currants, three pounds raisins, ono
pi und citron, ouc pound candied
orange and lemon peel, one pound
fijjs. one pjund almonds, two pounds
flour, one pound batter, two pounds
rf tho darkest brown sujjar you can
p. t, eighteen eegs, one ounoo ground
cloven, ono ounce ground cinnamon,
ono out co allspice, two nutmegs
grated, one fourth pint of brandy.
Prepare tho fruit tho day before.
This sinula command is apt to
"stump'' tho experimenter so this is
how it's done Firs of r.ll tumble tho
currants into a pauful of tepid water,
ptir them around a bit and lift out
with tho hands, letting- the water
dnin off them as you do. Repeat
this two or three times, 'then spread
them or. a clean tea towel, as coarse a
ono as youhavo, roll them up in it
and rub them well to dry thorn auu
to act the little stems oil. The stems
will slick to tho towol and tho uso of
two or threo towels in this way will
mako iIm currants perlectly clean
Spread them on a platter und set
aside until too morrow.
Stone tbe raisins. This is mado
easy by letting thorn staud in uearly
boiling water for a minuto. A small
bharp knife, a touch of butter on tho
fingers or else n howl of warm water
to dip them in. and tho seeds are
easily removed. Toar them in hdf
as you seed them.
Shred the citron quite fine and cut
up the fit's in small bits.
Obop the orange and lemon peel
Blanch the almonds and out them
in quarters. They arc blanched by
pouring bo'dinc water over them, let
ting them stand in it a few minutes,
and then popping them out of their
lho raisin'1, orange peel, citron and
almonJs should be pressed down in
a dish and tho brandy poured ovor
them then closely cover with a plate.
Tho next day, when the mixing and
the baking are to bo done, set the flour
on the oven to brown, and as it
brownB remove that dark enough
and set the rest back until all is u light
Thoroughly rub together the but
ter and sugar, with a wooden spoon
until creamy. Separate the volks and
whites of the eggs, beat tho yolks
until light and add to tho sugar and
butter. Then add half the
flour, next the spices, stir
ring well aftor each addition. Sift
tho otlur half of the flour over tho
fruit and add that, putting- the figs
and almonds in first so that thoy will
be well distributed, then tho citron,
chopped peel, raisins and currants
alternately, a handful of each at a
time, and Stirling industriously be
Beat the whites of the eggs to a
light not a stiff both and add last.
A good idea is to save out two or
three spoonfuls of tbo batter before
tho fruit goes in, to spread over tho
oakes after thoy aro in tbo ptns, in
order to cover tho fruit and prevent it
Heavy pans that turn out a cako
with u nolo hi tho middle, or earthen
waking dishes aro good to bake them
Tho oven must bo just hot enough
t0 turn a piece of mauilla paper palo
brown in a minute. It requires threo
hours to bako a. Irutt cake thorough'
ly and the oven must be o
"6low" one of oven tempora-
ture. Aftor three hours opeu the
doors and leavo tho cakes in tho oven
for half or throe quarters of an hour
longer to coo':.
Now for tha crowning touob. About
a week or five days before you aro
going to out tho ctkes, got a quart
bottlo of ohampagoo domestic does
very well. I'unoturo the cakos with .1
knitting needle or larding needle
through and throngh in every direo
tion anJ pour the wino over them,
turning them in it until they drink up
ovcry drop. Set them away again un
til tno day before cutting, when they
cm be iced if doaired.

The Train of Hungry Rangers
Sympathy Crystallzing for
The striks today presents no new
phases that is of importanoe. The
tact of tho business is, it is hard to
get anything now at this point. The
telegraph offioe on the San Antonio
and Aransas Pass is closed and as
there is no effjrt to run trains on the
Waco branch, there is very little to
report in way 0 casualities. The Hous
ton train was run out of San Antonio
yesterday and mado tho trip with no
hindrance save univorsal guying and
rofusnal of restaurants to sell
tho train orow anything to
eat. There was a company
of Texas Rangors aboard and at
Yoakum a desporato effort was made
to get lunch for tho orow and passen
gers, but was unsuccessful. The
restaurants refused to sell meals at
any price to any of tho train crew or
any of tho rangers. The grooers
were appealed to for oheeso and
craokcrs but refused to sell a singlo
5 cents worth. Tho Rangers and tho
train mon proceeded on their journey
in a very ravenous condition.
Sheriff Ford this morning handed
tho following to a News reporter.
Tho reward of $700, heretofore of
