A woman in London has a class of one hundred cooks, she gives what she calls “an entire dinner lesson.” While the lesson is in progress the swell women come in and look on. The menu on a recent oc casion began with a hors d’acuvre, anchois a la Colmar, which looked very tempting, the little fish being curled around upon croutons of fried bread, garnished with crayfish cream and White and yolk of egg. The consomme a la Leopold was certainly the prettiest soup I ever saw, says a writer in the New York World, with little circles of red, yellow and white floating in its clearness. These were made of eggs ■tul cream and stamped-out French gherkin. Next.came fillets of salmon a Uoomioodore, a delicious-looking dish, garnished with erayfir.h, button mush rooms and shredded gherkins. The hot entree was “petits poulets a la St. George,” and the cold, “mauviettes a la Sotterville,” both of very elaborate and detailed preparation. The releve was fowl with Bechamel sauce, accom panied Vy tomatoes stuffed with a puree of potato seasoned with Parmesan cheese. The sorbet, flavored with Liquid Sunshine rum, was served in ioe-vfater cups of white crystalized glass, the daintiest little glasses you imagine, especially when filled with tbs pink sorbet. After this came a brace of woodcock, and then a lobster wonderfully garnished and served with Mayonnaise sauce. A delicious looking vegetable entree was made of asparagus and artichoke bottoms. The two sweets were creams served with chocolate custard and banana sauce, and “petiles calsses ala Sultan,” com posed of whipped cream, oranges and pistachio garnished with a sort of sub toflee. The savory “huitrss a la bonne bouche” would make a capital sapper-dish. The oysters are served on thin rounds of fried bread, allowed to grow odd, then mashed with a puree made of chicken, anchovy, oysters and Crayfish cream. On each round la placed a slender slice of lemon and then an oyster. Not* bwds st Tn Hnsi.fi o«<*. J. W. HUG US. J. V. DA VIS, President. Vice-President. A. C. Moulton, Cashier.

A few weeks ago Tiik Herald made mention of a consignment of venison being refused shipment from Price, Utah, to Denver, and the sequel is er 4 ——- l " * w « e> «**——® special to the Denver News: -This evening (the Bth) a jury in the county court found Byron S. Bartbolf guilty of having unlawfully in his pos session upwards of four hundred deer killed in the White river region of Colo rado. To-morrow morning Judge Gray will pronounce sentence. The jury dis charged the ‘four Mormon teamsters employed by Bartbolf to haul the ven ison from Utah to this city. The deer were killed last October and November, presented at Price for shipment Decem ber 17th, but being refused by the rail road, were brought to Grand Juuction early this January. It now seems cer tain the whole amount of the venison. 22,000 pounds, will be sold in Denver by the state game warden, and the pro ceeds turned into the Mesa county treasury. The warden stated to-day the case was the most important in point of the enormous amount of game involved that has ever occurred in the United States. It is believed the de fendant will appeal, as at every step his counsel, L. A. Staley, has objected on the ground that the county court had no jurisdiction to try the case.” The case has been watched with in terest by citizens of Rio Blanco county, and the conviction of Barthoif will, it is hoped, put a stop to the wholesale slaughtering and marketing of game which by right belongs to the settlers. Some explanations that explain are in order concerning that bond bill. If the administration doesn’t want it and the Republican leaders are opposed to It, as we are now told, how in thunderation did the bill pass the house by a ma jority of 33. Those who object to the precipitate manner in which the house disposes of important legislation will probably find 1 that the senate will be slow enough t<> more than balance things. So far Speaker Reed has held his team well in hand, but the strain has been hard at times and something may break and cause a disastrous runaway any time. The special message habit threaten 5 to become chronic with President Cleve- 1 land. He should take something to steady bis nerves. The Cubans may not have licked the Spaniards, but they seemed to have had control of the telegraph news for a while this week. The anxiety of Venezuela to pitch in and lick the boots off John Bull is about the most amusing feature of the situa tion.

The situation is full of hope #1 encouragement; the thousands of Acarded street-car horses are elimin <e l from the market as a disturbing frfrfrmr-nt and the trade expects a largely fee reast-d number of foreigners on the •arkot early in the new year, in which ffem a sharp advance of 20 per cent pH be made on the entire list.

It the Hawaiian* really want another queen, what’s the muter with Miss Kate Field, who is now \\iting the islands? Here’s one for the editorial fratern ity: Why does the advertising agent make more than the editot? Boulder has a curfew bell and it is rung every night at 8 o’clock. Alter that hour all children not with parents must he off the streets. The editor of an exchango says that when he was a boy his mother didn't need any curfew bell to call him at night. She used a piece of a barrel stave for a curfew, and it brought him in quicker than any hell would have done. He thinks that if more mothers would use this same per suader there would be no need to ring bells. A SCIENTIFIC INDENTION. An Astronomical Instrument Which Be. cords the User's Observations. Carleton College observatory has sc oured a curious instrument invented by c 3lyir i Korthfleld letter to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The object of tbo instrument is to harmonize the observations of different persons who aro working together, at different times or at the sumo time. Astronomers well know that no two per sons seo exactly alike, by which is meant, for example, no two persons will say that a star passes a wire in a tele scope at exactly the snmo instant. One will record its apparent passage slow on true timo, whilo another will almost uniformly put its timo fast. Observers unconsciously form a habit of seeing objects fast or slow on true time, and the better the observers the more steady this error Isas compared with true time. This error the astronomer calls the per sonal equation of the observer. In amount the personal equation varies from .02 of a second ef time to some thing more than half a second for differ ent observers, either fast or slow on true time. Such errors as these can not be tolerated at all in astronomical observa tions for fundamental or original work of a nico kind, but must be in some way eliminated before final reductions can bo attempted. To accomplish this in one way an in genious machine has been constructed, which sets in motion an artificial star quite like the appearance of a real star in the telescope. As this artificial star passes wires In the machine the observ er records his observation!; and the in strument automatically records the ex act timo of the real passage of the star over tho same wires. Now both records are made by tho aid of tho electric cur rent, and consequently aro perfectly true. These records ar-. taken automatic ally in ink on an instrument called a chronometer, and hence their differ ences can be measured with the utmost aocuracy, and in this way tho error of the observer on true time is satisfactor ily known. The machine is in uso every night that observers work either together or singly, so that changes in individual personal equations may bo detected, as well as the differences that may exist between observers. The instrument, therefore, furnishes an unvarying stand ard for accu rate observation. Going to Find tho North Pole* Dr. Nansen is rapidly preparing for hi* expedition to tho north polo. Ue will start from Norway in February next, in tho ship of 170 tons burden that hu boon specially built for him. The ▼o—ol is so constructed that she can not be crashed by the ice, but if nipped the floe* will simply forco her out of the water on the ice. Dr. Nansen is pro visioning his vessel for five years, and a dosen men will go with him to share his good luck or tragic fate. He thinks it will take about three years to drift from the islands of New Siberia across the pole and down the other side to the southern end of Greenland. The ex pedition, which Is carried out by the aid of the Swedish government and the munificence of Mr. Diokson, will coat orer $100,009. wSugnd ©HE ©IONEEFJS Jj«W* Hugus & Company (INCORPORATED) JOBBERS AND RETAILERS OF GENERAL MERCHANDISE.
