Cotton-Seed Oil a Substitute for Both

Great -Salt Lake is, in fact, not a
branch of the sea at all, but a mere
shrunken remnant of a very large fresh
water lake system, like that of the bt.
Lawrence cnain. unce upon a time,
American geologists say, a huge sheet
of water, for which they have even in
vented a definite name, lake Bonne
ville, occupied a far larger valley among
he outliers ot the itocky Mountains,
measuring oW miles in; one direction
by 180 miles in the other. Besides this
primitive Superior lay a great second
sheet an early Huron--(Lake Lahon-
tan the geologists call it) almost as
big and equally of fresh water. By
and bv the precise dates are necessa
rily indefinite some change m the
rainfall, unregistered by any contem
porary, made the waters of these big
akes shrink and evaporate Lake La-
hontan shrank away like Alice in Won
derland, till there was absolutely noth
ing left of it; Lake Bonneville shrank
till it attained the diminished size of
the existing Great Salt Lake. Terrace
after terrace, running in long parallel
lines on the sides of the Wahsatch
Mountains around, mark the various
levels at which it rested for a while on
its gradual downward course. It is
still -falling indeed, and the plain
around is being gradually uncovered,
forming the white salt encrusted shore
with which all visitors to the Mormon
city are so familiar.
But why should the water become
briny ? Why should the evaporation of
an old Superior produce at last a
Great Salt Lake? Well, there is a small
quantity of salt in solution even in the
freshest of lakes and ponds, brought
down to them by the stream or rivers,
and, as the water of the hypothecated
Lake Bonneville slowly evaporated, the
salt and other mineral constituents re
mained behind. Thus the solution
grew constantly more and more con
centrated, till at the present day it is
extremely saline. Professor Geikie ( to
whose works the present paper is much
indebted) found that he floated on the
water in spite of himself; and the un-
deV sides of the steps at the bathing
places are all encrusted with short
stalacites of salt, produced from the
drip ofr the bathers as they leave the
water. The mineral constituents, how
ever differ considerably in their pro
portions from those found in the true
salt lakes of marine origin, and the
point at which the salt is thrown down
is still far from having been reached.
Great Salt Luke must simmer in the
sun for many centuries yet before the
point arrives at which (as cooks say)
it begins to settle. v
On the Sleeping Car.
Dover (Del.) Sentinel.
"Have you heard about the Seaf ord
man who never used a sleeping car
until the Norfolk line down the Penin
sula was opened?'' asked a railroad
conductor of a newspaper man the oth
er day. He replied lie hadn't, and the
conductor continued: "Well it sounds
a good deal like a fish story, but it's
true. This Seaf ord man I won't give
him away was on h is way home from
his first visit to !New.York. He had
never been on a sleeping-car before in
his life, and he seemed to be considera
bly mystified concerning its interior
arrangements. He was too proud, how
ever, to ask any questions. The berths
were, of course, all in order for their
occupants, but something seemed to be
amiss to our unsophisticated passenger.
He was the first to make preparations
for bed, but he did it with a great deal
of deliberation. He sat down on the
lower berth, pulled off one boot . and
then glanced anxiously around. It was
fully five minutes before the other boot
came off, but when it did he had solved
the problem. Pushing his boots under
the bed he started for the rear platform
and nothing was heard of , him
for some ten minutes. Then lie put
his head in at the door and called out:
All you in there look out, for I'm a
coming!' And he did, too, with a rush.
He had undressed out on the .platform,
made a bundle of his coat, pants and
vest, and as he shot into his berth after
a dash up the aisle he remarked, half
aloud, to himself: 'Dod darned, ef
twarn t kind of cold out there on that
blamed piazur.' "

Nothing affects the well being
man lo quickly as the food he con
sumes. luiere are a number of articles
of daily consumption which have pro
duced an untold amount of misery and
have been condemned by hygienists
ever since the beginning of history.
Lard hasontributed its share, as is
well known, and now a substitute has
been discovered which is equally as di
gestible and nutritious, and can be
placed on the market at a cost so low
that it is cheaper and much better for
most culinary purposes. The follow-
jsj a -a r t -w -erWv i
mg article, oy Mrs. J. F. Walker, ot
St. TjOius, Mo., is self-explanatoiy :
"I have been using cotton-seed oil
for more than ten years. In view of
this long experience, I think I am fully
prepared to pass judgment upon its
merits, and 1 unhesitatingly say that 1
regard it as far superior to lard for cu
linary purposes. When properly used
it is imperceptible to the taste, except
perhaps in the case of biscuits which
are to be eaten cold for lunch; in that
case lard or butter is preferable, but for
everything which is to be eaten imme
diately the oil cannot be detected.
"For frying fish and oysters it is less
liable to bum than lard, and a much
larger quantity can be used without
waste or. extravagance, as what is left
can always be strained into a jar and
kept for repeated use, with the addition
of more as needed. It does not become
stale or rancid, and does not retain the
odor of fish. For frying fish or fritters
or baking waffles and batter cake, it
should be kept on the stove in a
suitable vessel, or they will : absorb too
much of the raw cold oil. For corn
bread I add it hot the last thing ; this
makes the (nicest egg bread without
eggs. For j waffles -made with cold
boiled rice, pr corn-meal batter cakes,
the addition of a little oil in the batter
makes it as rich as though two or
three eggs were used. 1 have not tried
?!. 1 i O Oi
it ior caKes, except ior sort ginger
bread, wherej it perfectly supplies the
place or both butter and eggs. For
brewing chopped onions and flour for
stews and gravies, it is not so liable to
burn as black as lard, and gives a very
rich appearance, as more or less of the
oil rises to the surface in veyes.Ifirst
began the jjise of i oil from hygienic,
not from economical motives, as I
could then j procure only the highest
priced bottled salad oil. The oil as it
comes fresh from the refinery is limpid,
pure and sweet, with the color, taste
and 0dor?of the bottled salad oil, sup
posed to be genuine imported olive oil.
T , .... A
the most of which is, however, either
lard oil or cotton-seed oil the highest
price being paid for the bottles and
the fancy labels, not for the contents.
l.Y , . r s w
r rom a nygienie point oi view, l con
sider it a most valuable substitute for
lard, keeping the blood free from im
purity and humors, with which it is so
frequently loaded where lard and but
ter are freely used m cooking. I think
that 1 have said enough to show that
in my experience, at least, it proves a
most valuable substitute, not only for

Ladies as Commercial Travellers.
Chicago Ileral. r
"Therejs a new racket on the road,"
said a commercial traveller. "It's a fe
male drummer. I met her the other
day M and she is a dandy. Of course she
travels for a Chicago house, and she
sells goods like a January thaw. She
has been out so long now that she is
as independent as a hog on ice. She
sits in an ordinary railway and charges
up sleeping berths in her expenses, just
like the rest of us. She walks to the
hotels from the stations and charges up
the hack fares, just as we do. She beats
the landlord down to $1.50 a day and
I charges the house $2.50 in the regular
old style. She can take care of her
self every day in the week, and she
knows" how to order up a bottle of
wine and work it on the expense ac
count, too. Why, when I saw her last
she Was a new silk dress ahead of the
firm, and by New Year's proposed to
have a sealskin sacque out of her ex
penses. ; And that isn't all. She has
half of the hotel clerks in the North
west in ashed on her, and the way the
little rascal knocks 'em down on her
bill is a caution. She has a regular
trick of staying over Sunday where one
of her admirers runs the house, and
she walks off Monday morning forget-
to pay the bill. What does she
sell? That's the funniest thing about
itl You would think she would handle
jewelry or millinery or dry goods,
wouldn't you? But she doesn't. She
sells gents' furnishing goods, and the
young men who usually keep that kind
of stores buy of her as if they hadn't
seen a commercial traveller for six
months. And she is a dandy poker
player, too. She handles the cards
awkwardly, and acts as if she didn't
know a full hand from two pairs, and
raises $2 on deuces, and nearly cries
when t'other fellow shows up three of
a kind, and then gets excited in a big
jack pot, and raises the opener and bets
the limit and raises back and scares
t'other fellow out, and slides into the
deck a little pair of sixes or sevens or a
bobtail as innocent as you please. Bluff?
Why, she has a bluff on her like the
Wisconsin River. She's a daisy, and
tell you it s mighty lucky for the
boys that there ain't any more like her
on the road.' "
A Note of the Times.
Touching the transformation in the
South which the war produced, the
substitution of one set of social, indus
trial and political usages and mstitu
tions for another, or, as our friemds of
the North prefer to phrase it, the in
troduction' here of the "higher civili
zation1' that has long obtained: there,
several apparently minor but deeply
. . a ill-
sienmcant tacts should be put on re
cord for the philosophic consideration
of future students of history. Taking
Virginia, of which State only we can
speak with certainty, as an illustration
of the southern system, we note that
before the war there was not in all her
borders such a thing as a pawn-broker's
shop or a junk shop. Professional de-
tectiyes were unknown. Tramps were
never seen. Beggars were so rare that
you might not meet with one in twelve
months. There were thousands of
1 a a f e
homesteads where a key was never
turned. And divorces were almost un
heard of. WThat sort of. society and
civilization these facts may denote,
and how they will stand comparison
with the state of things existing then
and now in the North, and hereafter
perhaps to exist here, will be for the
studious and thoughtful in comir
time to determine. We make historic
record of the facts, as in our non-partisan
and non-sectional way we are en
titled to do, but leave comments and
deductions to others. Industrial South.
old, he determined to leave home and
be a midshipman in a colonial navy.
After he had sent off his trunk, Ise
went to tell his mother good-by. She
wept so bitterly, he said to his negro
servant, "bring .Wk my trunk, I am
not going to make my mother suffer so
by my leaving her."
He remained at home to please his
mother. This decision led to his be
coming a surveyor, and afterwards a
soldier. His coreer in life turned on
this one simple act of trving to
make his mother happy, and he never
had occasion to shed bitter tears for
any act of unkindness to his parents.
Let us not forget that God has said.

Senators and Alcohol.
V Cleveland Leader.
The Senate adopted a rule
that no intoxicating liquor shall be Sold
hereafter on the Senate side of the Capi
tol, and a lively diseussion took place
when the subject was up before the Sen
ate. Several of the tipplers of the body
insinuated their abhorrence of liquor in
pecksniffian speeches. Oneortwoavopred
themselves teetotalers, and one who is
known to always keep a supply oi old
Bourbon in his committee room, announc
ed himself the supporter of Riddleberers
amendment that no liquor shall be per
mitted in committee rooms. The diseus
sion, however, announces to the people
how discretitable and disgraceful has be
come the use of whiskey and wine about
the halls of Congress.
Manv a man is ruined bv comink to
Congress, and the instance of BelforL of
Colorada, is the most notable of today
When Belford was elected he had the
brightest prospects before him of any man
in public life. He had a memory which
could retain Webster's dictionary, af wit
which could keep Congress in roars of
laughter, a command of generalized
knowledge which left him never at a Joss
from ignorance of any subject that came
before tbe House, and an intellect duick
to understand aud take advantage of the
moment. He came lie re a sober man and
had just begun his bright career when, in
addition to tackling' bills in Congress, he
commenced a fight with liquor. Liquor
beat him in the end, and during the last
session his amusing antics under its in
fluence on the floor of the House became
almost painful. He has now reformed

A Timely Sug-gestion. I
In a letter to the editor ot the Elizabeth
City Eemeinitt ex-Governor JaniCno
is now minister to Brazil, suggests that the
legislature make a standing appropriation
and we hope it will bear fruit. It is a lament
of $500 a year, and direct the Governor to
have painted in oil, each year, and hang jrj

great men. As we are so far behind i ooo

probably none has ever done so little to

would soon accomplish in rescuing from .

any peoptejmight well be proud, illustrated :
by deeds of brilliancy wrought by the sons .

A great deal of talent is lost to the
world for want of a little courage.
A writer in the Louisville Post says:
Few people know how to dress a fowl
after killing it. Birds, ducks, and tur
keys are usually dipped in hot water, so
their feathers may be more easily re
moved. These feathers con
tain unsavory oil and they penetrate
the skin. As soon as the hot water acts
upon the oil it is driven through the
porous tip of the feather and infused
under the skin. For this reason it is
very difficult to secure a dressed chick
en or other bird in the market that
does not taste feathery after eooking.
They are dressed hastily and to save
time and trouble are soused in hot
water. The bird is almost worthless
to a oelicate palate after that. Every
member of the feathery tribe should be
picltea carefully while cold, carefully
cleaned and allowed to remain in salty
water for twelve hours. The salt
draws the excess of blood from the
body. When properly cooked after
this process they nave the delicious
taste which persons enjoy so much at
"country dinners'11 and which they
cannot explain. It is simply due to
the fact that the country cook is usu

this, in the absence of iime, coral Was re
duced to powder by burning. The natives
watched the process of burning with) inter
est, believing tliHt the coral was i being
coked (for them to eat. Next morning i hey
beheld the missionary's cottage glittering
in the rising sun white as snow. It was so
beautiful in their eyes that they djaneed,
sang, and screamed with joy. The'; whole
island was in a commotion. W Ii i t e wash be
came the rage, and happy was the co
quette who could enhance her charms by a
Sdaub of the whitewash brush. 1 hen con
tentious arose; one party urged theil supe
rior rank; another obtained possession of
the brush and valiantly held it against all
comers; a third tried to upset the tub in bis
eagerness to get some of the precious cos
metic. At last, to quiet the hubbub, more
whitewash w as made, and in a week not a
hut, a domestic utensil, a war-club, or a
garment but was as white as snow; not an
inhabitant but had a skin painted with
grotesque designs; not a pig that was not
whitened; and the mothers might be seen
in every direction capering joyously and
yelling with delight at the superior beauty
of their whitewashed babies. Montreal

"Have you lived a good life?" said
St. Peter to a trembling female who
knocked timidly at the gate of beauty.
"I was only good at one thing," said
jbhe spirit before him, with a doleful
shake of the head. "And what was
that?" inquired St. Peter in a voice of
blissful sweetness. "Cooking," respond
ed the timid one, in woeful tones.
"Come right in, then," said the senti
nel saint, "you have saved more men
from perdition, than a dozen mission
aries, and I don't believe yot can find
anything around here in the shape ot
blessednepw that you're not entitledjto."

We have had our popular theories of ed
ucation without Christ; but nothing now
seems more certain than that they practi
cally end in corruption and crime. We ex
pend our millions of dollars grudgingly for
the continuance and extension of the gos
pel, and our hundreds of millions cheerfully
tor the repression and punishment of crime,
when the expenditure ot hall tbe latter sum
for the free dissemination of gospel .princi
ples among all classes would save toe other
half. We devote our powers with tremen
dous energy, too often week day anil Sun-
dav alike, with the use of ail the flee for
ces of nature to the production and acqui-
sition oi weann ami me advancement ot
material civilization, with t he inevitable
result of over production and periodical
depression in which much of thef fancied
gam disappears. If one half the energy-
were expended in the hmher line of gospel
enort we might have steady increase of sol
id wealth with permanent prosperity, and
all this is a' word of constantly increasing
purity and peace. Living on sucii princi
ples our souls might grow as rapidly as our
fortunes instead ot being blighted . and
dwarfed by covetousness. Pretidet Greg

The WjOrds, "Honor thy father and

tell them the truth, always treat them

The attempt has been made to eliminate
the miraculous element from the Scrip
tures by accounting on rational principles
for occurrences represented as due to the
divine agency. Strange to say, these efforts
have been encouraged by men who profess
to reverence the Bible as an inspired re
cord. No motive is desirable but a desire
to propitiate the arrogant spirit of carnal
reason. For the admission of inspiration
commits a man to. the whole catalogue of
miraculous events there recorded. The
