How bright and warm, a place it was,
That quaint dear kitchen old,
Where burning logs defied the frost
The breath of Winter cold.
The tall clock from its coi ner dim
The mighty silence broke,
In tolling oft the passing hours
With slow and measured stroke.
The apples quartered and festooned
On strings were hanging high,
And ears of golden corn were hung
Around the fire to dry.
'Twas there the busy mother made
Her doughnuts, pies and cake;
'Twas there she put the bread to rise,
And watched it brown and bake.
'Twas there the spinning wheel was heard
From early morn till night;
For there dear grandma spun and reeled
The fleecy wool so white.
A pretty picture grandma made,
With snow-white hair and cap.
When weary with her work at times,
Her hands lay in her lap.
She dreamed, no doubt, of by -gone days,
When life was new and sweet ;
She doubtless heard the patter, too,
Of many little feet.
And now. as then, the children came
To her with griefs and joys;
And now, as then, she kissed and rocked
The baby girls and boy.-.
The sunbeams played upon the wall
And danced upon the floor,
And lay in threads of golden light
From cracks around the door.
No longer swing those hinges now,
No merry children play,
No buzz of spinning wheel is heard
Throughout the livelong day.
For restless time has closed the door
Has locked and barred it fast
And only to the memory comes
These vision of the past.
For as the Winter snow falls soft,
It brings to mind at times
The pleasant scenes of long ago,
Like sweet, low -whispered rhymes.'
Ye feathery fl ikes that drift around
That dear beloved place,
Tell to that kitchen changing time
Can ne'er its joys efface.

A very Ood substitute lor cro
quettes may be made by rolling out
mashed potatoes on a board, flitting
them into small cakes, nibbing them
with the white of tin egg ami baking
Those who would have the deli
cious syrup of the old-fashioned pre
serve without the labor attendant
upon its preparation, may obtain it
by adding a few spoonfuls of sugar
to the juice in a can, heating it almost
to the boiling point and then pour
ing it over the fruit.
. Cold hominy may be made into
muffins, are very good with coffee.
Take a cup of flour, two cups of
hominy, two eggs and two teaspoon
fuls of baking powder, a tablespoon
ful of sugar, one-third of a cup of
butter and a teaspoonful of salt; mix
together and bake in muffin tins.
Veal should be roasted twice as
long as beef or mutton, and should
be thoroughly basted while cooking,
as the flesh is dry. - An excellent
addition to the made gravy is two
teaspoonfuls of strained stewed to
mato or a tablespoonful of tomato
catsup; they should be heated
together over the fire , for a ibVv
minutes. S '
A pleasant variation on the jolly
and cream filling used for double
cakes may be made of apples. Beat
one-egg Tight in a bowl, and into it
a cup of sugar. Add to this the
strained juice and grated rind of
a lemon. Peel anil grate three firm
pippins or other ripe, tart apples
directly into this mixture, stirring
each well in bjfore adding another.
When all are in, put into a farina
kettle and stir over the fire until the
apple custard is boiling hot and
quite thick. Coo! and spread between
the cakes.
Cut thin slices of bread, buttered
on the loaf before each is cut, and
spread with grated cheese, in which
has been worked a little melted but
ter, a very little made mustard, cay
enne pepper, salt to liking. Put
two together, buttered sides inward,
for each sandwich, if the slices are
small; if large, cut in half and fold
over upon the mixture. They are
very nice.
Corn bread without yeast or soda
is sometimes desired as an article of
food. Sift three quarts of meal, add
a teaspoonful of salt, and mix with
just enough water to make a thin
batter; cover this with a cloth and
let it stand until it begins to rise,
and little bubbles make their appear
ance on the top; then pour it into a
well buttered tin and bake slowly in
a moderate oven.
Divide some sardines lengthwise
removing the skin, bones and tails;
add a little of the oil from the tin
and put into the oven between two
plates, letting them get quite hot.
Take some thin strips of bread the
exact length of the sardines, fry
them in butter, put half a sardine on
each slice, sprinkle on cayenne and
salt and a squeeze of lemon juitv
and serve very hot.
Bella's pudding.
Heat three cups of milk to the
boiling point ; mix four tablespoon
uls of flour with another cup and
stir it into the hot milk, allow it to
cook thoroughly, salt it and sot
away until it is perfectly cool. Beat
up three eggs, beat up the cornstarch
with the Dover beater and then add
the eggs and half a cup of sugar,
and beat until the mixture is per
fectly smooth.
taste and bake half an hour
Vdd flavoring to
Cut the celery into pieces three or
four inches long; boil them tender
in malted water; drain them; make a
atter in the proportion of two eggs
to a cupful of rich milk; mix flour
or fine bread or cracker crumbs,
enough to give it consistency; roll
the pieces of celery in it, and fry
them to a light brown in hot lard.
Serve very hot. Celery can also be
eooked as asparagus, boiled tender,
and served with a white sauce.
After jointing the chicken, place
it in a saucepan, with just enough
olive oil to keep it from burning.
After the chicken is thoroughly
irovvned cover it with boiling water
stir it and cook slowly for one hour,
season with salt and pepper, then
add one tablespoonful of flour, and
put into it either small onions or
mushrooms. If onions are used, the
little ends of each should not be cut
as is usually done when they are
c-rved alone.
Mince fine one cupful of rare roast
beef, add one-fourth of a small onion,
grated, one teaspoonful of chopped
parsley, one-fourth teaspoonful of
pepper and one teaspoonful of salt;
stir in a little good stock and one
egg, beaten. The mixture should
be as soft as you can handle it. Heat
altogether and when it is cool mould
in the bowl of a spoon into egg
shaped balls, roll in fine crumbs and
fry a light brown in hot lard. Make
a gravy of one cup of stock thick
ened with browned flour and flavored
with one teaspoonful of Ifalford
sauce, and pour over the cecils.
Open a two-pound can of preserved
pears, drain them from the liquid,
cut them small and run them
through a sieve; add half a pint of
white sugar syrup. Cut up two
pineapples into small slices, and
then into small dice. Add their
weight of sugar anda pint of water,

cool. Boil half a pound of dried
cherries in half a pint of syrup and

while working the pears, with the
spatula, the well-beaten whites of
four. eggs. I)rain the cherries and
