Turk had to come and stop the bloody tulzie for Christ's sake.

"Man will never cease making a fool of himself until he embraces the doctrine of Brainism. That is the now absolute and unquestionable knowledge that salvation can only come from having a healthy brain, which can only exist in a healthy body, which can only be built of pure vegetal cells from fruit and grain, and never from the death-and-disease-laden vegetal cells—products of the slaughter-pen. Be that known of all men. Give ear to the voice that crieth in the wilderness: 'All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is in the flower of the field.' Yea, and all the cursed meanness thereof, all the disease, misery, crime and self-deception thereof are in the flesh-pot."—Dk. David Mackay, in Dallas (Tex.) Times-Herald.

BEST THING FOR COLDS. To the Editor: I sent for your Eureka cold cure. It is the best thing I ever tried. Have recommended it to my friends.—. Avery F. Leonard.

A SECRETARY OF FEACE IN OUR PRESIDENT'S CABINET.

Dr. Edward Everett Hale never said in his whole life a truer word than recently, this: "We have a Secretary of War— what we want is a Secretary of Peace."

That is precisely what is wanted today for the good of our country and the world.

"A Secretary of Peace," with a liberal congressional appropriation, whose duty it shall be, to the utmost of his ability, through our colleges and public schools and in every other possible way, to promote measures for the prevention of wars, and to hasten the coming of peace on earth

and good will to every harmless living creature, both human and dumb.

Geo. T. Anqell. The above from Our Dumb Animals indicates that our good friend Angell has come exactly onto the vegetarian platform. We knew he was not far from doing this when we met him on the peace platform at Mystic, some years ago.—H. S. C.

SIMPLE DIET FOR SINGERS. Mme. Emma Nevada, who left with her company for the coast last night, spent a busy day yesterday, sight-seeing. After the concert on Saturday night she took lunch with her cousins, Mrs. G. P. Bullard and Mrs. Fred Deister, and their husbands. The diva wanted some quail. She had eaten none in fifteen years. * * * However much of an appetite Mme. Nevada may have, she must restrain it. Her bill of fare is a very light and simple one, especially on the days of the nights when she is going to sing. It consists usually of an egg and a small bowl of soup. There is nothing in the world more delicate than the voice of a prima Bonna. If she should depart from her light diet on any day, her audience would know it that night.—Phoenix (Ariz.) Republican.

A VEGETARIAN* EXPERIMENT.

It is related that once on a time an experiment was made at a W. C. Temperance Home of serving meals without meat. Among the religious ladies who came on Sundays to conduct religious services and partook of the Sabhath dinner, the subject of vegetarianism was discussed. One of the leaders, a staunch teetotaler, said: "I think it is best all around to eat a little of the meat, then leave it, if one does not wish to eat meat, so as not to be obliged to explain one's self." The vegetarian lady who was present replied: "On the same principle, then, Mrs. B., I suppose that if you were present at a dinner at which wine was served, you would just take a few sips from your wine-glass and then set it aside to avoid hurting the feelings of your hostess?"

This came like a thunderbolt, and the temperance lady affirmed she would not do that as wine drinking is wicked, and asked if meat eating was wicked. The

vegetarian lady, a staunch humanitarian, replied: "Yes, indeed, Mrs. B., far more wicked than wine drinking."

After discussing this phase of the question, without coming to a conclusion, the vegetarian lady proposed to put the question to vote of all the ladies and girls present: "Have we not had a good and sufficient dinner although no meat was served? Is anyone going away hungry?"

All had eaten so heartily that none could say nay.

THINKS ANDREW INCONSISTENT.

To the Editor: I read the first article in your December number, "The Oldest Living Vegetarian," by Abel Andrew, with a great deal of interest. I regret that our old friend forgot to state the two most salient points, viz.: how old he was and how long he has been a vegetarian. May I call Mr. Andrew's attention to an inconsistency in his philosophy? For fear of microbes he shies at milk, "like a horse at a bicycle," but advises us to use plenty of good butter! How about cheese (decayed milk)? S. Seileb.

MADE HIM MORE HUMANE. To the Editor: I have not eaten any animal flesh for a year. I had the sandbar of flesh-eating nearly moved off my mind, and your magazine finished me on February 10th, 1901. When I first got The Vegetarian I quit for about two weeks, then for about three weeks, and finally for good. Love or money cannot hire me to eat meat again. I know it pays to be a vegetarian. It has made the faculty of benevolence stronger in me. Take meat away from a man and he will become kinder and more humane, whether he wants to or not. After I had been a vegetarian about three months, I felt brighter and better than ever. I talk vegetarianism to a great many; there are no vegetarians here that I know of. I am ridiculed by some; others think I am a crank, and some think I talk real sensibly. I have set many to thinking. I could talk vegetarianism from morning to night if people would listen, and I had the time. —August Schmoldt.

LIVES ON FEW CENTS A DAY.

To the Editor: I have been living on a raw or natural food diet since September 7th, and find that it suits me admirably. The only trouble is that the food tastes so very good, that if one is not careful they are liable to overeat. There are several advantages in this way of living. It is cheaper, for one thing. I live on fruit, honey, peanuts, wheat, oats, and vegetables. I bought peanuts at 5 1-3 cents per pound and a half teacupful is enough for a meal. Then, honey costs here from 5 cents to 6 cents a pound. I raise the vegetables, and the grain is not very expensive. I have been using Prof. Tyler's sun-cooked bread. It is very good

and cheap, too. This plan of living does away with all cooking and fuel bills. Then, when traveling, one does not have to pay extortionate prices to eat. They can take along figs, dates, raisins, almonds, etc. There is no doubt but that fire destroys life, and in eating raw food all the life that is in it is taken into the system. Walpole Nockolds.

FROM A CHEMICAL VIEW POINT.

"Chemistry is not antagonistic to Vegetarianism any more than biology. Flesh food is certainly not necessary to supply the nitrogenous products required for the repair of tissue, therefore a wellselected diet from the vegetable kingdom is perfectly right, from a chemical point of view, for the nutrition of man."—Dr. F. J. Sykes, B. Sc., Medical Officer for St. Pancras.

"Chemically speaking, flesh food is not necessary. Meat seriously diseased, may be so prepared as to look like fairly good meat; many an animal with advanced disease of the lung yet shows no 'naked eye' appearance, differing from normal, in the flesh."—Professor A. Wynter Blyth, F. E. C. S.

FROM AN ANATOMICAL STANDPOINT.

"The Anthropoids and all the Quadrumana derive their alimentation from fruits, grains and other succulent vegetable substances, and the strict analogy which exists between the structure of these animals and that of man clearly demonstrates his frugivorous nature."— Sir Richard Owen, F. R. S.

Egg Plant. Butter Beans.

Corn Pudding. Paprisky. Melted Butter.

Celery Boot Salad.
Sponge Cake.

PUREE OF PEAS.

One quart of peas in half a cup of oil, with chopped onions or celery or both. Cover tightly and let cook until peas are quite soft, after which add a quart of boiling water, or that in which vegetables have been cooked. Thicken with a little browned graham or wheat flour. If the vegetable water is added it will be quite rich and more water may be added.

BROWN BREAD.

One pint of sour milk, one quart of graham flour, one teaspoonful of salt, one teaspoonful of soda dissolved in a little hot water, one teaspoonful of baking powder, one-half cupful of Orleans molasses.

CODDLED APPLES.

Peel and core tart apples. Arrange them in a dish deep enough so that they may be covered, and fill each cavity with sugar. Dredge sugar over them, pour in a cupful of hot water, cover closely and simmer in the oven or on top of the stove, as may be most convenient, till soft. Lift them without breaking into the dish in which they are to be served, add a dust

[ocr errors]

of nutmeg to the syrup and pour it over them.

EGG PLANT.

After boiling the egg plant in salt water till it is tender, cut it open, remove the inside and mix with it bread crumbs, butter, salt and pepper; fill the shell with this mixture, put the two halves together, and bake half an hour.

CELERY ROOT SALAD.

Boil the celery roots in salt and water. Slice while still hot. Serve with plain vinaigrette dressing or allow the slices to get cold. Then dress them with mayonnaise, mixed with finely minced water cress, parsley and chives or shallot.

SPONGE CAKE.

Beat together with the hands the yolks of four eggs and one cupful sugar until creamy; add the whites beaten to a stiff froth, and stir in one cupful of flour and a small pinch of baking powder. Bake in a moderate oven.

TWO NEW KECIPES. Tea Ice-cream.—Scald one cupful of milk, add to it three egg-yolks beaten with one cupful of sugar, and just a suspicion of salt; cook until it thickens, then add one half cupful of strong tea infusion and one cupful of cream; strain, and cool by beating, and when perfectly cool add two cupfuls of cream thoroughly whipped, and freeze. Serve in small glasses or flowercups.

Dutch Salad.—Select one of those small yellow cheese that come from Hoiland, scoop out the entire inside, leaving only a shell and a cover; or an Edam cheese can be used if the red outside coat is scraped off, so that it will look yellow. The cheese that comes from the inside may be put in a glass can or a closely covered tin box and it will keep until used. Make a salad of celery, grape-fruit pulp and white grapes, using only one-fourth as much grape-fruit and white grapes as you have celery. Mix this with a mayonnaise dressing, and fill the cheese. The cheese-shell serves as a salad-dish and gives the salad a delicious flavor of cheese, therefore only plain wafers should be served with it.' The cheese can be placed .on a pretty plate covered with a doily.— Woman's Home Companion.

Golden Age

Cook = Book.

By Henrietta Latham Dwight.

This new work embraces all that is essential to a bountiful and luxurious table, with the most nutritious adaptation of all natural food products, without involving the sacrifice of sentient life.

It is not extreme.

It is suited to the needs of flesh-eaters as well as those of vegetarians.

It comprises over thirty recipes for soups, more than eighty for vegetables, and an unusual number of entrees, salads, and fruit desserts; also valuable recipes for the toilet, not to be found in any other book.

It is an invaluable aid to those who are striving to bieak away from old traditions, but who are not emancipated from the fear that life and strength cannot be sustained without a flesh diet.

It is the most comprehensive Vegetarian Cook-Book yet published.

"AROUND THE PAN." The reader may make up his mind to be pleasantly overwhelmed by the opulence and vivacity of "Around the Pan," published by the Nutshell Publishing Co., 1059 Third avenue. New York. The wonders begin with the frontispiece .picture of President McKinley, drawn in a single line, beginning at a point on the cheek bone and going round and round in a constantly widening circle, with waverings and downbearings of the pen in the proper places to secure detachment and shading. We are told that this portrait "is considered the most unique work of its kind in the world," and if there are degrees of uniqueness, we are willing to believe that this is most the thing of which there are no duplicates. Of course there is text in addition to the pictures, and we should be surprised indeed to hear from any purchaser the opinion that he had not got his money's worth ($2).
