Have about two pounds of steak cut very thick; melt one ounty of butter or dripping in a small stewpan. then put in a layer of mixed vegetables, carrot, turnip, onions, etc., cleaned and sliced, making a layer of about three-quarters of an inch deep; lay in a bunch of herbs, and on all this arrange the meat, cover down the pan and fry its contents for about 12 or 15 minutes, only shaking It occa sionally to prevent this burning: now pour in just enough stock or water to reach to the bottom of the meat, cover this with a piece of white paper brush ed over with butter or dripping, then cover down the pan, and let the meat simmer very gently till it Is done, basting the meat occasionally. The time of cooking varies with the kind and quality of the meat; for two pounds of fillet or rump steak I*4 to 1% hours is about the time Serve the meat on a hot dish surrounded by the vegetables and gravy, which should be thickened with corn flour.

Attractive Bead Work. Much is reproduced nowadays in bead work imitative of that done a century ago, when all such industries were considered accomplishments, and the individual tastes of the belles of that day were shown in their hand iwork. Bead purses, reticules, bags of all descriptions and card cases were then made in them, the fashion now not only including these, but also belt buckles, in which eithe" fruit or flower is set with a filigree framing of cut steel beads. Fans for all occasions are shown, those with wrought ivory sticks and pailletted gauze particular ly attractive, and in some the sticks are delicately inlaid with tracings of steel. Such a fan is useful with any evening costume, for there is no color to conflict with the shade of the frock, and the little spangles catch the light in a fascinating way.

Sun. “Jayhawkers of ’49” The DEATH VALLEY MAGA ZINE, which is publishing the life of Death Valley Scotty, will begin the story of the “Jayhaw kers of ’49” in its May number. The “Jayhawkers” discovered and gave Death Valley its name. The story will be written bv John B. Colton, one of the survivors, who is now 75 years of age. He was the youngest member of the party, being 16 years old at the time. April 5, 1849, the party, con i sisting of 36 members, organized ;at Galesburg, Ills, under the name of “Jayhawkers,” and started to the gold fields of Cali jfomia. They were on toot the last 52 days of the trip, having [ abanotied the wagons and butch- I ered their oxen for food. There are four survivors, one a woman aged 94 years, who car j ried a child upon her back and kept in line while the strong men fell dead or went insane upon the i trail. All of the story will be told for the first time, the humorous as well as the pathetic. Publishers have sought it for 50 years, but the survivors have now deemed it fit and proper to give it to the DEATH VALLEY MAGAZINE. No pioneer or lover of American history can aford to miss it. The subscription price of the magazine is $1 .a year. Every issue contains stories and pic tures ot the desert worth the price.

Have your celery very cold and crisp, and with it mix the oysters and a quarter of a cupful of mayonnaise, garnish with celery tips and slices of lemon. Laces That Will Not Wash. Laces that are embroidered with silk and colors, tinsel or gold and sil , ver should be spread out smoothly on a clean piece of white cloth and | cleaned carefully with a soft brush dipped in spirits of wine. If silk lace is much discolored it should be soaked in hot milk for two I or three hours before washing. Honiton lace shomd not be ironed. Put it under a weight on clean white 1 paper after being washed. Blotting paper will give the best results.
