Consul General Lee and Hannh

Secretary Day.
Whole Cuban Situation Being
Discussed Prior -to Lee's Re-,
turn to
Two More Battles Result Favor
ably to Cubans-rBlanco's
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.—Oonsnl Gen
eral Fitzhugh Lee was at the state de
partment early in conference with As
sistant Secretary Day, leaving later for
Warrentown, Va., to attend the funeral
of a friend.. He .viU return to advise
further with officials here, as to the
Cuban situation, it is ^nnclerstood that
the state department is going over with
General Lee an£ Sir.. Bannis Taylor,
ex-minister to Spain, the effect of the
recent cabinet1 dianges, the result off
General Weyler's withdrawal and his
succession by General Blanoo, and other
new phases developed by the accession
of Sagasta. The escape of MissCis*
neros from a Havana prison, through
the efforts of a representative of
the New York Jouinutl, has been
talked over also, the' 'pfevtdling view
beiug that it will not lead to any inter
national complications. General Lee
tiaid that he did not think any serious
question would arise over the incident.
Ex-Minister Taylor/ when asked if
international complications were likely
to arise, answered:
"I think not, and the probable result
will be that Sagasta wUl give a royal
decoration to those who have been good
enough to rid Spain of this troublesome
Mr. Taylor will not disenss the pres
ent situation at Madrid. He is engaged
however, in writing a review of the
political, economic and' diplomatic
lases of the Cuban problem, with
his own views drawn from expe
rience r.t Madrid, and- refuses to
mako any comment in advance of
his carefully prepared review of
the case. The talk of administration
officials with Mr. Taylor and General
Lee has given an accurate view of the
situation, both at Havana and- Madrid,
resulting-from the change of Spanish
cabinet and policy. There is good rea
son to believe that the view communi
cated to the state departmentis that the
accession of Sagasta means a
Fabian Policy of Delay,
not only for the present, but for many
weeks to come, and that no definite
policy for Cuba will be announced for
some time. As evidence of this, it is
pointed out that General Blanoo, the
new captain general of. Cuba, will not
leave for his post before
the 15tji instant. Officials believe
his delparture is more likely
to be deferred until the 20th. The trip
from Barcelona will take about 11 days,
so that the new captain general will
not reach Havana before the early part
of next month. This, it is said, will
permit all pending Cuban questions to
be held in suspense at least until the
new official reaches his post. After
that, it is anticipated the Spanish cab*
inet will desire that General Blanoo be
given time to familiarise himself with
the situation and his 'duties, and to
tnature the policy he isto apidy tothe
island. The execution off that policy,
an allowance of time for a fair trial,
etc., according to those in a position to
accurately judge the situation, will lead
to protracted delays on those subjeots
to which the United States recently
has invited the attention of Spain.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9.—The state de
partment has not yet been officially in
formed of the purpose of the Spanish
government to dissolve the cartes in
December, as indicated in the M«ui»id
cablegrams. It was expeoted, however,
that it would be found neoessary for
the cabinet to go tothe oountry in or

oftentimes crude lieoause of the nice'

-there are oertain legends respecting
greenish yellow or spotted biscuit at
whiohthe present generation of house
keepers smile, thanks to baking pow

the stomach, should never be used with
out an wsid to render it a neutral salt,

sour milk, and the proportion must be
exact or the mixtnre will be either acid

"Pure baking powders are simply a

A little flour more or less will not^

A Medical Man Says That as a Bale They
Are Flat Bided.
Consumptives have flat sided heads.
This interesting discovery has been
made by Dr. Mark Knapp of New
York. His paper on the subject, read
before the New York County MaHiral
association, is printed in The
One of the conclusions of Dr. Knapp
is that tuberculosis cam neither be in
fectious nor communicable.
It really pnre, they cannot be called in
jurious, the danger lying inathe use of
powders having1 impure ingredients, of
which quantities are doubtless sold
Jafly. So sensible have housekeepers
beooine of these adulterations that many
are going back to the use of soda and
oream of tartar, the use of which, as in
dicated, requires both intelligence and
care. If one., is dependent upon the
average cook a standard baking powder'
is the safest reliance.
"In the making of quick doughs (by
use either of baking powder or soda and
oream of tartar) there are two points
not given in any cookbook, so far as the 1,
writer knowi^ which add greatly to per-1
fection in results. To mate such dough
proceed as follows:
"Into one qqart of flour (measured
before sifting) put a level teaspoonful
of salt and 2 heaping teaspoonfals of
baking powder, ur a level teaspoon
fnl of soda and 2 rounding ones of
cream of'tartar, mix thoroughly with
the hands and then sift twice. Next
add a heaping /tablespoohful of bu
or butter and lard mixed, rub tip
lightly with the hands and again put"
through the sieve, pressing, the last
heavier part through with the fingers or
hand. Now toss the mixture lightly!'
about as when first putting in the bak-'.
ing powder, and it will be fonnd thftt,
the shortening is distributed with per-,N
feet evenness through the flour. Have
ready a scant pint of sweet milk in ar
mixing bowl and into this put half at,
the flour. Beat hard for a few minutes,
when the mixture will be as smooth a8f
satin. Add rapidly the rest of the flour,
roll out quickly, cut (if for biscuit) and 4
bake at once in a rather hot oven.
"Some flours require more wetting
than others, but the rule for guidancto
However this deduction is regarded
by medical men generally, Dr. Knapp
does not intend to be understood as say
ing' that the ftact that a man has a flat
sided head (called medically a piano-'
parietal head) either already has or that
he of necessity is doomed to have tuber
culosis. That this assumption would bo''
absurd Dr. Knapp showq by saying that
centenarians and athletes an recruited!
from the ranks of the plano-parietals.
Nor does he wish^to be understood as
meaning that tuberculosis mwitih. the
oontbor at ahead which previously had"
been of a different shapa Dr. Knapp
says his statements am substantiated by
a few hundred cases, of which 477 were
ooUectedfrom four New York iiwyifati*
In all these casos only four exoeptiona
to the rule ware fonnd.
The most important-- -conclusion
reached by Dr. Knapp is that the foun
dation of tuberculosis is laid in early
life, and therefore the way to save the
adult is to guard the WhlM,
