PARTED.
The silver brook will miss thee
'The breeze that used to kiss thee,
And ruffle with a soft caress thy curls of
sunny hairj
"When the early dewdrops glisten
On the roses, they will listen
For thy step upon the garden walk, thy
laughter in the air.
The meadows gay with flowers,
The Summer's leafy bowers,
"Will know thy joyous smile no more ; the
woodlands stand forlorn j
I hear the soft complaining
Of birds, from mirth refraining,
That greeted with their carols sweet thy
waking every morn.
Poor mother ! hush thy weeping,
Above thy darling sleeping,
Nor fret with aught of earthly grief the
stillness where he lies ;
Flowers in his little fingers,
"Where the rosy flush still lingers,
For the angels are his playmates on the
shores of Paradise.
J. I, L.j in Chambers' s Journal.
TOMATO AND BEEP SOUP.
Jk. ean of tomatoes, boiled for an
hour with a beef bone, a chopped
onion with seasoning makes a pal
atable soup.
JSORTH CAROLINA CAKE.
'Whites of six eircrs beaten to a stiff
froth, two cupfuTs of white sugar,
two tablespoonfuls of butter, one
jcupful of sweet milk, two and a half
crapfiils of flour, two teaspoonfuls of
veast powder; flavor to taste, and
ake in a moderate oven.
S3IOKED BEEF WITH SAUCE.
Cut the beef as thin as possible,
and "pour boiling water over it; let
it stand,. for a few minutes, and then
drain off the water. Put the beef in
a fryi fig-pan, on the back of the
range, and let it dry a little; then
add a. piece of butter and dredge a
little flour over it, and stir until the
flour is well mixed and smooth ; add
a litte cream and serve hot.
SCALLOPED POTATOES.
Take boiled potatoes,, slice them
thin, put in a pudding dish a layer
of potatoes, crackers, a thin layer of
rolled crackers, sprinkle with salt,
pepper and three or four small
pieces of butter, then add another
layer of potatoes, crackers, etc.,
until the dish is filled; over all pour
a cup of cream or rich milk. Bake
from one-half to three quarters of an
hour.

ding dish ; put into this a layer of
grated bread crumbs, then a layer
of sliced apples; over these sprinkle
sngar, and so on alternately, bread,
apples, sugar, until the pudding dish
is full, letting the top layer be of
bread crumbs; on this place three
large lumps of butter; put in oven
and bake brown. Serve hot with
Imtter and sugar sauce.
CORN BREAD.
CJorn bread is more wholesome
than Jiot rolls for breakfast. Made
in this way it is excellent: Half a
pound of Indian meal, half a pound
of .flour., .one teaspoonful of salt and
one tablespoonful of baking powder
sifted into a bowl. Beat one ounce
of butter, one ounce of sugar and two
aggs stogether, and add the sifted
meal .and iflour. Add gradually one
pint of milk for a thin batter and
hake inn hot oven.
WATER ICE.
t3ne cup of loaf sugar, with the
juice of six lemons squeezed over it,
half a pint of water, and a syrup
made by boiling three quarters of a
pound of sugar in a little less than
a pint of water; let this stand in a
Jaige earthen jar or dish for an hour
and a half, then mix the lemon, etc.,
-with it, strain and freeze. If you
wish to make this a pretty dish as
wellcis pleasing to the taste, add the
whites of eggs beaten to a froth with
ipow'dered sugar mixed with them;
2ut'thisxn the top of the glass. ,
.IHGW' TO . MAKE f GRAHAM ! BREAD. . "l "
Graham bread that can be started
after ibreakfast and baked before
dinner is made of one pint and a half
of sour, milk, two scant teaspoonfuls
f soda dissolved in a little hot wa
ter, half a cup of New Orleans mo
lasses, a teaspoonful of salt- and as
much sifted Graham flour as can
fou0rboltl.
be stirred in with a spoon. Grease a
'large bread tin very evenly, as the
molasses in the bread renders it lia
ble to stick,-put into the oven and
bake for two hours. Have the oven
hot when the bread is but in, and
toward the last half of the last hour
let it cool gradually. Or this bread
may be steamed for one hour and
three quarters, and be dried off in
the oven twenty minutes. "When it
is taken from the oven wrap a towel
around the loaf, the tin and all, and
in ten miuutes remove from the tin,
and keep the loaf wrapped in the
cloth until it is sent to the table.
MILK BISCUIT.
Melt three quarters of a pound of
butter in a pint of milk; add when
nearly cold one pint of yeast and a
little salt, and work into these suffi
cient sifted flour to make a softish
dough; roll this into balls, which
place at a little distance apart upon
greased baking tins; place in a warm
situation to rise ; when light bake in
a brisk oven to a light fawn color.
When done, wash over the tops with
a soft brush dipped in milk; this
will give the biscuit a slight gloss.
ORANGE CAKE.
Six eggs (reserve two whites for
the icing,) two teacups of sugar,
three teacups of flour, one teacup of
of cream, two teaspoons of bread
borders (or half teaspoon of soda
and one heaping one of cream of
tartar.) Season with a little of the
orange juice and bake in jelly-cake
pans. Filling To two unbeaten
whites add the juice of one good
sized orange, beat for a few miuutes
and then gradually add a pound of
sugar till it is all beaten up-smooth.
Spread this between the layers and
over the top.
LEMON SHORTCAKE.
Make a shortcake dough exactly
like a strawberry shortcake. While
that is baking grate the peel of a
lemon, and squeeze every drop of
juice from it into the bowl; then
take half a cup of sugar and half a
eup of molasses, ateacupfulof water,
a little lump of butter and a table
spoonful of flour. Let this boil un
til it is just about as thick as boiled
custard. When the shortcake is
baked cut it in two parts, and pour
the mixture over the lower one;
then lay the upper part on this,
bottom side up, and cover thtft also
with the jelly.
GREEN TOMATO PICKLES.
After slicing the tomatoes scald
them in salt and water until soft.
Test them by pinching a slice be
tween the thumb and finger, and
skim out nearly as soon as they boil
up. Drain and put them in a jar,
and turn on the vinejrar. Take half
as many pints of sugar as vinegar.
Heat the vinegar to dissolve the su
gar and get the strength of the spices,
which may be cinnamon and ground
cloves, tied up in little thin bags or
pieces of cloth, three or four to a
gallon ot pickles. Pour this over the
tomatoes while hot. These are
always in good demand.
CHOCOLATE PUDDING.
Half a cake of chocolate broken
in one quart of milk and put on the
range until it reaches boiling point;
remove the mixture from the fire,
strain and then return to the range;
add four tablespoonfuls of cornstarch
mixed with the yolks of three eggs
and 1 2 cups of sugar; stir constantly,
until thick; remove from the fire
and flavor with vanilla; pour the
mixture in a baking dish ; beat the
whites of three eggs to a stiff froth
and add a little sugar, cover the top
of the pudding with the. meringue
and set in the oven until a light
brown. Serve hot.
VERSAILLES CREAM.
One quart of milk, half a cup
ful sugar, teaspoonful of vanilla
extract, half a teaspoonful of salt,
seven eggs, two tablespoonfuls of
water. Put the sugar in a frying
pan and stir until a very light
brown. - Add the water, stir a
moment longer, and mix with the
milk. Beat the eggs and salt with
a spoon. Add this mixture and the
vanilla to the milk. Butter a two
quart charlotte russe mould lightly,
and put custard in it. Put the
mould into a basin of warm (not
hot) water' and bake slowly until
the custard is firm in the centre. It
should take forty minutes; but if
the oven be very hot it will be done
in thirty minutes. Test by putting
a knife down into the centre, for if
the custard is not milky it is done.
Set away in a cold place until serv
ing time. It must be ice-cold , when
eaten.
JAPANESE ADAPTABILITY.
It is said, says the fSan Francisco
. -' 7? a a t 1 '
nuuernij mat a Japanese mecuumu
can measure distances with his eye.
He can reduce wood and iron to
squares and levels in that "way. He
will cut a board' or a stick a given
number of feet, using, his eye for
determining the length ana tne
breadth. Every Japanese boy who
is fairly well educated, draws with
just about as much facility as he
writes. He figures everything which
he wants to illustrate. Having occa
sion once to ask a Japanese student
something about methods 01 war
fare in that country (he had been a
soldier attached to one of the great
Damios) he immediately figured his
explanation in a neat drawing. He
could not command enough English
words to make his meaning clear,
but he could make it clear by a
sketch with his pencil. Not one
American boy in ten who has
received a fair common school educa
tion, could have made a free hand
drawing illustrating the use of war
implements or implements 01 indus

There is a tree in Mexico called
the oily cocoa. Its seed is almost
entirely composed of a fatty sub
stance which has sometimes been
used in making soap. A quantity
of this seed was recently shipped to
Europe, and a Stuttgart baker has
successfully used the oil as a sub
stitute for lard in making bread and
cake. The seed contain 12 per cent
more actual grease than ordinary
pork lard, and can be kept for
months without spoiling. There is
said to be a fortune awaiting the
man who will go down to Mexico
and develop the business.

With Cotton at Eight arda Half Cents, h
Crops and Sad Fricss,
! WHAT SHALL BE DONE f
: Raleigh, N. C, Feb. 1, 1885
The situation of our Farmers, aml
more especially of those in the Eastern
Counties, is a serious one. With cotton
at 8 cents and everything else in tlie
same proportion, it is doubtful whether
our people can make cotton at all
with the old method. Thousands 0f
thoughtful men all through the
South are considering earnestly tWv
question : WHAT SHALL BE D0E?
With prices of their products way lovn
and the prices of all they buy not re
duced in the same proportion, what
shall be done to feed the family. Un
clothes and send the children to school
during this New Year ? All this time
sensible men are cutting down every ex
pense and resolving that they will make
more at home. Milk, meat, vegetables
must be made in larger quantities and
groceries saved ; corn, oats and gra
must be provided for the horses, cows
and hogs. High-priced fertilizers and eve
ry extra thing are entirely out of the
question. I he wise man will buy the
cheapest and best ingredients only and
make fertilizers at home this year.
At this time, THE NORTH CAROLI
NA PHOSPHATE COMPANY, an ex
clusively North Carolina Company, work
ing nothing but North Carolina material,
wants to inform the prudent men just
described how they can help themselves
and help a home enterprise by buying
LIME PHOSPHATE, the cheapest Phos
phate ever sold in North Carolina. It is
to the interest of every farmer in Xorth
Carolina to write to the NORTH CARO
LINA PHOSPHATE COMPANY at
Raleigh, N. C, and learn how to save
money and make a good fertilizer that
will . make a good crop at a very low
price.
