AN ENTIRE DINNER LESSON.
The Appetising ISilt of Faro .'’resented on
• Recent Occasion.
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

Game Violator Convicted.
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.

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
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
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
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
