point Is reached however no car will
be permitted to pass the pacemuking

from Flatbush N. Y.
"Zip a son of Bluff the big bull ter
rier la the most respected dog in Flat-
bush N. Y. says a correspondent. He
requires every other dog within AO
blocks to walk a chalk line and bow
to him as he passes by. Be can lick
everything on four feet up to twice his
size yet is as mild as Devery-at-the-
Pump. His master attributes Zip's
prowess to his fondness for the pipe.
Llka Old King Cole:
He rail for his pipe.
He calls for his slass.
He call for his flddlnn tlir.
That Is the most remarkable dog in
the world" says his master. "He takes
my pipe out of my mouth and smokes
standing on his hind feet. See! The
stem Is all chewed up! If the tobacco
doesn't burn well Zip will get down on
his fours and chase all over the house
to create a draught. When the flre is
well started again he finishes his
smoke and returns me the nine.
Strong? He ought to be named Sam
son. Why we have a piano that
weighs 600 pounds. Tie Zip to it with
a rope and he will pull it all over the
Difference for Which Allowance Must
Always Be Made.
In teftiiis recipes allowance must
be n ti'le for the differences in flavors
strength of ingredients and purity of
materials used. For instance: The
so-called strained honey especially the
kind already strained and to be had iu
bottled and tumblers is rarely ever
pure honey Is veYy strong and
"biting" and apt to impart a disagree-
able tang when even a very little too
much is used. If one can obtain
honey directly from the comb the
recipe may be followed. Sugars vary;
powdered sugar often has flour or corn
starch mixed with it and will not
sweeten properly; granulated sugar
may be very coarse or fine and when
moist as some of it is weighs more
heavily than the dry kind. Molasses
Is often interpreted by the inexperi
enced to mean any kind of syrup from
corn to cane and sorghum; but corn
syrup (glucose) is not as sweetening
as cane sugar and sorghum Is strong
and not always of agreeable flavor.
Molasses Is usually meant to designate
the sugar-cane syrup. Beet sugar is
not as sweet as cane sugar. The
proper use of these different qualities
can only be the result of experience
and personal good judgment.- Exchange.
Beat two eggs well add one cup of
sugar and one tablespoonful of melted
butter and beat again. Add half a
cup of milk mix two tablespooufuls of
baking powder with one and a half
cups of flour and stir it into tle egg
mixture. Flavor with one teaspoonful
of lemon extract. Beat it well and
bake in a round shallow pan. When
cool split it with long sharp knife
and fill it with a cream that is made
while the cake is baking. Boil one
cup of milk wet one tablespoonful of
cornstarch tn a little cold milk stir
It into the boiling milk and cook over
hot water ten minutes stirring often.
Beat one egg light add two table-
spoonfuls sugar and a pinch of salt
and stir into the thickened milk Cook
one minute stir In one teaspoonful of
butter and one of vanilla and set
away to cool.

Antiquity of the Sausage.
The sausage dates back to the year
89". It has been asserted that the
Greeks In the days of Homer manu
factured sausages but this prehistoric
mixture had nothing in common with
our modern product. The ancient so
called sausage was composed of the
same materials which enter Into the
make-up of the boudln of the French
market and the blood pudding of th
French-Canadian. The ancient sausage
was enveloped in the stomachs of
goats. Not until the tenth century di :
