Telephone service, linking together city and country and shore,
is never more appreciated than during the summer months.
While the business man is confined to his desk in the city, the
telephone keeps him in touch with wife and family, though they
may be many miles away, summering at some pleasant resort.
During his own vacation the businessiman relies upon the tele
phone. He is free from care, for he knows that he can be reached
at one by telphone should important matters require his attention.
At the vacation home also, the telephone proves so convenient
in arrainging games and outings with friends and ordering sup
plies from the distant markets.
All this is possible because Bell Telephone service is universal

and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, in a natural manner, by g'ng to the

. he Appetizing Beefsteak.
In an article on "The Appetiz
ing Beefsteak" in the M ay
Woman's H o me Companion,
Fannie Merritt Farmer, the well
known cooking authority, pre
sents a number of recipes, and
gives the following general ad
vice about steaks:
"The underlying principle
which governs good broiling is
this: One side of the meat must
be quickly seared, the meat must
be quickly turned, and the other
side quickly seared. This pre
vents the escape of any of the
juices. Turn almost constantly
for the first minute of the cook
ing, then the meat must be
cooked on one side, turned, and
cooked on the other, to suit in
"The best cuts of meat for
broiling are porterhouse, sirloin,
cross-cut of rump-steak, and sec
ond and third cuts from top of
round. Porterhouse and sirloin
cuts, although commanding about
the same price per pound as the
cross-cut of the rump, p r o v e
most expensive on account of
the greater loss in bone and fat.
Round steak is very juicy, but,
having coarser fibre is never as
tender. Neither is the flank
end of a porterhouse very ten
der. For this reason, it is a
good plan to cut it off before
cooking the steak, and use it for
meat cakes (Hamburg steak), or
a small stew, or perhaps a small
beefsteak pie. Cut out the ten
derloin and reserve it to be
cooked for one meal; cut off the
flank and save it to be prepared
for another, then broil the sir
loin for dinner. The bone may
be used to give added richness to
the stock, if the flank end is
utilized for a stew."
