GOOD CUrtl OF MEATS.
Upon examination it will be
found that the tbeat from a loni:
cooked soup bone will tear off in
long stringy fibres. By the use
of a microscope one can see that
these fibres or tubes are composed
of bundles of these hair-like tubes
held together by a tough mem
brane called connective tissue.
These fibres or tubes are filled
with life-giving mucle juice water,
holding in solution proteins,
mineral sajts and extractives.
Effect of Heat
Heat coagulates the protein.
The ideal to be aimed at in
cooking meat, tbereforo is to re
move the raw appearance with
Out hardening the proteins and
the texture, and without the
characteristic flavor of the ex
tractives of the meat. To reach
this ideal, care must be taken to
expose meat to a high temperature
only loug enough to coagulat the
proteip on the outside and close
openings to the tubes, then cook
at a low temperature.
The Expensive Cats of Meat.
The more expensive cuts of
meats?-the loin cuts?have nutri
tive value, texture and flavor.
1. (1) Exposure to a high
temperature for a short time
coagulates the protein on the out
side, and by that means the juices
are retained in the meat for their
ultimate purpose?building body
Usaue and reparing waste.
(a) In the case of a tender or ex
penm ve cut of meat after the
brief exposure to a high tempera
ture tlie meat should be placed
where the cooking will be less
rapid until it is as rare or tender
as the family desires.
In the process of broiling, the
beat is conveyed to the meat by
direct radiation. Expose the
meat to a high temperature until
the outside is seared; then cook
?Out the steak frpm one to one
and a half inches tbipk. Trim,
and whip with a wet cloth. Broil
over a hot fire, turning every ten
counts, until both sides of the
meat are seared. After both sides
have been exposed to the high
temperature hold further away
from the coals and cook slowly
until the steak is as well done ar
you wish it. Season with salt,
peper and butter.
Rub over the pan with a piece
of beef fat to keep the meat from
sticking. Have the pan very hot
during the first three minutes'
Broil the meat on both sides; then
reduce the heat. Season as in
Roast of Beef
Roast of beef. 4 lbs.
Salt, teaspoon or more
A little suet.
Try out the suet, put the roast
in the hot fat, sear on all sides,
then reduce beat and cook slowly
in its own iuicea and fat until the
roast is nearly done. When near
ly tender add salt, dredge with
flour, and brown. Then add one
cup of boiling water. Baste the
meat every ten minutes through
out the entire time of cooking.. If
liked very rare allow fifteen min
utes to the pound; if liked well
done, twenty minutes o* more to
the pound may be allowed.

The lower branch of the General
Assembly baa gone on record very
decidedly with reference to its
position on the question of equal
suffrage. There in practically no
possibility of the matter again be
fore the House at this session.
This question is one that must
come by education and force of
circumstances. In the Western
States its application has, in all
probability been necessary and
expedient, but here in North
Carolina, where the home is rever
ed in the South's peculiar way,
and the woman is looked upon as
the guardian of the castel, there is
not so mach need fur the privilege
of the ballot for women as in the
sections where she has to hoe her

To Restore Traio Connection
Agreement Reached Hy A ,C. I- and
Norfolk Southern for Rocky Mount
Rocky Mount, Feb. 7.?Positive
assurance that settled a point of
much agitation and comment from
towns and cities along the More
head City-Goldsboro branch of the
Norfolk Southern, was settled yes
terday morning in the announce
ment from the office of the super
intendent of transportation of the
Atlantic Coast Line that- after
February 15 the noonday connect
ion of these two companies at
Goldsboro would be restored.
The arrangement just reached
is the consummation of some little
work by officials to get the roads
together, and a wave of protest
from the people served by this
important branch of the Norfolk
Southern. The new schedule, ef
fective on and after the date
named, includes the arrival of the
Norfolk Southern at Goldsboro at
11:10 a. m., and the departure^of
A. C. L. train No. 48 for Rocky
Mount and the north at 11:15.
While this is only a five minute
margin, it is understood that the
usual ruling in the matter of be
lated trains will prevail and the
time required and number of
passengers served will enter ma
terially into the making of the
connection in such ,an instance.?
