KNŒDEL SOUP; A RECOLLECTION.

New Snitz and Knep, especially if the
dour be too plentiful, may fairly be
called dumpling; but Kncedels are ge
nerically nothvng elae but Kncedels,
though, aff will hereafter appear, there
be varieties of the genus. Some peo

are such noodles as to prefer vermi

Bcnp. Mother's grandmother was
Dutch, and, somewhere along the line,
an English Quaker came in on one
side and a French Huguenot
other, and the household traditions of
the three intermingled to produce
some famous dinner,—especially a
rare variety of Knœdel Soup. Later
experience, le ads me to believe that in
this , the Quaker and French got the
better of the Dutoh ... .Dut it is not a
boyish recollection that I am booked
for, but one of the many that come to
the hard-working commercial travel
ler_By the way, people of the same
class that prefeas vermioelli to Kneed
els, profess to despise commercial
travellers for being each. Oor business
is not the most elevating, to be sure;
but boors and snobs exist in all olasses.
And you will remember that it was
Uncommercial Traveller who sneered
and jeered at his too kind Amerioan
friends to tiokle the faroy and pocked

eral years ago I spend a vacation in
Lebanon. For three days I drove a
quite lazy _ little mare—we were well
matched—about the country, chancing
for enjoyments;—it is a right pleasant
way to put in the time,—if you like it,
_I started one morning about six
o'clock and drew up at an inn about
ten. The lauqlord wasqluffand hearty,
—rathor fat, l thought, for comfort;
but he -was right jolly with his cronies
on the bench just back of the horse
trough. The landlady would have been
a help-meat if he had needed any, and
the two daughter were as buxom as
oan bo found in the three counties,—
of course you know the three I mean.
... .Beside the house the coyish Swa
tara twisted its shining way down the
Blue hills; zig zagging, as if afraid of
a straight run; and the fields in front
were which with waving grain, among
whioh the scythes flashed;—mowing
machines were too new-fangled for the
people. I think, but am not sure, for
the wind blew from me, that they were
buckwheat fields... .(Let me ask, par
enthetically, did you ever eat honey
in the coub drawn from the buckwheat
up in the Wyoming Valley? Califor
nie honey, in its glass boxes, is not to
be mentioned in the same day with it.
FirBt time I get holiday and a free pass
I'll go up to see Dr. Bradley at Wilkes
Barre, just to get some more like that

my worthy host of the Phoenix set out
for me some sixteen years ago;—Gil"
christ. I think, his name was. 'You
have a rioh y alley here,' I said to him,
as we stood on the poroh, in the twi
light. 'Sir,' he replied,—and there
was dignity and reverence in his tone
and manner,—'there is no more beau
tiful spot on God's footstools!')
my inn, dinner-time came at noon.
You have seen the dining-room of a
well-kept German inn; belike you put
up at the Bunoh of Grapes, at Lancas
ter, befo re the Stevens House was
built. Well, it was in such a room
and at such a table that I sat dowa. I
oould hear theSwatara babbling, as
the younger daughter said,— 'Knœdel
Soup?' Mother's had been delicious,
and my landlady's, in the city—she
was a Jersey Qfliak er— was excellent j
of course, I would take some. The
others at the table had been served,
and there was a gurgling sound in
the room that drowned Swatara's
music- Hetty—that was the youn
's name—brought me my dish
of soup;—about two quarts!_I hold
it jk> be the most gentlemanly aot
of my life that I put it all under my
jacket, rather than disturb the gratifi
cation that the landlady and Gret
chen showed on seeing me at work
over it. Knœdles Soup was their
str<yg hold, and they had made it as
a treat for me. Well, the soup was
strong too; so were the Knœdels, and
broad, and yellow, and thick, and oh,
so long; I verily believe if you stood
the chair you still wouldn't
have the other end out of the dish. It
was the farm-hand variety of Knœdel
Soup; it lacked the French-Quaker
flavor mother's had. It was whole
some; would stick to the ribs; but it
was not just the sort of ailliment to
nourish and develop the minute deli
oate colls that mass into the white and
gray substance of the cerebrum. And
it was brains that I wanted.

"Yes," was the unconcerned reply, "I

An exchange says:—"Kerosene will

"Do you set ud for an ang .l, now?"
she asked, "your visits are so few and

"but an angel sets up for me."
"They fired two shots at him,"
wrote an Irish reporter. "The first
shot killed him, but the second shot
was not fatal."
The barber's razor took hold of his
