The peculiar action^ of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir No one in the district cumstances. had been missed within their remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring the body to the oldest inhabit i ant—an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the vil I läge all her life. When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange thing occurred. The old lady fell on the corpse and kissed it, and ad dressed it by every term of endear ment spoken in a bygone generation. He was her only love, and she had waited for him her long life. She knew he had not forsaken her. The old lady and young man had been betrothed,60 years before. Her lover had disappeared mysteriously, and she had kept her faith during the long interval. The miners removed the old lady to her house, and that night her faith ful spirit joined that of her long-lost lover. Relics of Russian Colony.

A rabbit should not be hung longet than two or three days unless kept in cold storage. The age of a rabbit may be told by the paw. If there is a little nut in the paw which may be easily broken with the thumb lji and finger, the rabbit la young; if it has disap peared and the paw re sists pressure, the rab bit is too old for any thing tut a stew. In dressing a rabbit there is a little secret that will remove the gamy odor which is so objectionable to some. It is to remove the thin membrane which extends from the flanks over the intestines. The strong flavor will be removed and the flesh delightfully sweet. The gall bladder must, of course, be carefully removed. Roast Rabbit.—Put the rabbit, care fully dressed but whole, into a kettle. Add a quart of water and a pinch of soda and stew until tender. Take from the broth. Mix with the broth to moisten, well-seasoned bread crumbs, stuff the rabbit, lay in a pan, spread with butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake a rich brown. Serve with a brown gravy made from the broth adding a little browned onion for seasoning. Barbecued Rabbit,—Open plump young rabbits all the way down the under side, wash and lay flat in a pan of salt and water with a weight to hold them under the water. Wipe dry and slash across the backbone in eight or ten gashes, brush with olive oil and broil before a clear fire, turn ing often. Lay on a hot dish, season with salt, pepper and plenty of butter, then set in the oven for the butter to soak in. Heat in a small pan two tabiespoonfuls of vinegar, with one of made mustard; brush this over the rabbit while boiling hot. Garnish with parsley or watercress and serve with a currant-jelly sauce. Cook a tablespoonful of onion in a tablespoon ful of butter, add one teaspoonful of flour and a half cupful of rabbit stock, season with salt, a teaspoonful of vine ghr, a bay leaf, a clove and a table spoonful of currant jelly. Simmer five minutes and serve. "KluA. TvWivteß. Chicken Soup. Three pints chicken broth, ten pep percorns, two slices carrot, one slice onion, on blade mace. Cook one-half hour, add one pint milk, three table spoonfuls each butter and flour. Salt and pepper to taste. Bird's-Nest Salad. Color cream cheese a light green with pistachio coloring; roll into balls the size of bird's eggs, arrange on lettuce leaves apd serve with mayon naise. Imperfect. Here is a story of a famous Ameri can. Ralph Waldo Emerson was a man of rare integrity, and so particu lar about small things as to be punc tilious. One day a new cooking stove had been provided for his house, and, although the stove came highly rec ommended, it proved thoroughly re fractory and aggravating, and did everything hut what it was expected to do. At length the family was in despair, and someone suggested send ing it to auction. "What!" exclaimed Emerson, "transfer our own perplex ity to another pair of shoülders? No, never! unless the stove is labeled 'im And "imperfect" it was la » ff perfect. beled, and sold at a heavy discount— Exchange. KENDRICK ITEMS Hope every one enjoyed Christ mas.
