, . THE SALT LAKE TIMES. MONDAY. SEPTEMBER, 1890 6 i Choose tho largo red garden peppers, wash them in cold water and wipe them perfectly day; put them in a pan in a hot oven or liefore tho firo, turning them, bo that the heat strikes all parts, until they aro tender; cnt tho peppers open, remove the seeds and rub the flesh through a sieve with a potato masher; the eyes should not bo held over the sieve, because tho pepper fumes are very irritating, hut if by any mischance they should bo hurt they should either bo bathed in milk or covered with cloths saturated with it. Tho pulp of tho pep-pers after being passed through tho sieve should liavo enough boiling water added to make it the proper liquid con-sistency, seasoned with salt and then bottled for use. There is a very good essence of pepper upon the market. Juliet Corson. "Damo Naturs Herself Gives a Hint lor the Adultoration of Certain Brands of Pood. HUE AHT OF MAKING GOOD JELLY. Are Yon Eating fruit or Vegitable Jelly? Mexican Dulces Made of Squash- -; Other Practical Hints. Many a good housewife wonders when the juice of fruit remains liquid, obsti-nately declining to meet her expecta-tions of a jelly. The total perversity of inanimate things verities itself too speed-ily for her comfort, much to her wonder, perhaps, or possibly repeating old puz-zling conditions. Tho fruit may seem identical with that previously used with success. The question has often been asked how the proper condition may be known by the appearance, flavor, color. By none of these indications. It really neems to be one of Lord Dundreary's, problems "that no fellow over can find out." Undoubtedly it is of the handi-work of that great choinist tho sun. The pectose of unripe fruit is transf ormed by the heat of the sun into pectin, tho basis of fruit jelly, This substance (poctose), which exists in a number of edible roots, such as carrots, turnips and parsnips, can be changed by boiling into pectin or vegetable jelly. As a matter of fact the chemical analysis of fruits and vege-tables has yielded sovoral almost identi-cal substances which are classed as pec-tose, but it would be difficult in the present stage of chemical inquiry to say which is the actual basis of jolly. Per-haps it is as vague as the origin of the cdor of the fruit. Associated with tho pectose group in both fruit and vogei ables is tho substance called cellulose, the basis of the cell walls in fruits, leaves, stalks and roots. Its elements aro similar to those of starch, and it probably figures in jams and solid sweetmeats, because it is not soluble in boiling water. The flavor lacking in vegetables is duo to the pres-ence of acids in fruits. In tho orarge family, which includes all tho bitter va-rieties, and the shaddock, lime and lemon, gooseberries, enrrants, barber-ries, cranberries, blackberries, strawber-ries and raspberries, citric acid prevails in combination with some potash and traces of malio acid. The intense acid of garden rhubarb is oxalic, like that of sorrel. The taste of green grapes is somewhat liko that of apples, owing to the presence of malio acid. As the fruit ripens the quantity of tartaric acid increases, and the fruit ac-quires diuretic and laxative qualities. The seeds and skins are astringent from the amount of tannic acid they contain. It is this which causes the unpleasant taste when they are crushed in eating and which gives the astringeucy to wine. The chemical analysis of grapes is con-fined to those varieties best known as wine producers. There aro over 1,500 distinct varieties, and their medicinal properties have been known since the earliest historic or traditional times, when Bacchus was but another Siva, creator, destroyer and restorer, even as lie is in those prosaic days, wh'en five pounds of white Ohasselas are allotted as a day's subsistence. Any ono who has eaten the delicious Tokay and sweet white clusters of Southern California would be content with such semi-liqui- d nectar. The daily quantity advised when grapes are to bo tho diet is from three pounds to ten or twelve, eaten from the vine proforably, thus adding the tonic of outdoor life to the food Talue of tho delicious fruit. Apples, pears, peaches, plums, cherries and tomatoes aro all excellent from their abundance of malic acid and the cellulose and poctose necessary to pro-duce jelly or jam. Since chemical ,' analysis shows all these elements to be present in tho vegetables already men-tioned, it gives tho tip to unscrupulous manufacturers of supplying tho deficient flavoring acids, and presto, change! Thero yon are! Tho clearest, finest of jellies, flavored witli whatever nicety of taste nature has bestowed as a make-weight for lack of conscience. In the tubs of "apple butter" sold as the pure fruit any of tho vegetables specified above might bo recognized if the ob-server were a clairvoyant, and pumpkin and squash masqnerado as citron anil kindred Bweets. A legitimate dulce is made in Southern California and Now Mexico from our familiar yellow squash, for which the recipe was obtained from the obliging restaurateur. The menu for the entire dinnor may interest our readers. It was served to Mrs. Laura B. Starr. Vermicelli Soup. Spanish DiJh of Kie, with Tomato Sauce. Tortillas, with Red Pepper Sauce. Enchiuulin. Frijoles. Tomalea, with Spanish Sauce. Lettuce aud TonuUo Sauce. Dulces. Coffee. The dulces, or candied squash, was made of yellow squash, peeled and cut in half inch dice, the seeds being scraped away. Half a pailful of quicklime was slaked in a tnbful of water, and in this tho squash was soaked over night. The next morning the squash, drained from the limewater, was boiled for fifteen minutes in water actually boiling at first; meantime a sirup was made from sugar equal in weight with the squash, about a gill of cold water being added to the sugar as a basis for the sirup; tho squash being skimmed from the boiling wator is boilod in tha sirup until it looks clear, like citron melon preserve, A lit-- tie lemon may be preserved with the squash. It is skimmed from the sirup as soon as it cooks clear, and when all is done tho sirup is boiled down until it jellies slightly when cooled. 'When the simp and preserve are both cold jars containing them can be closed air tight and will keep very well. HIGHLY SEASONED HOT WEATHER DISHES. The rule seems well founded that very highly seasoned sauces or relishes are needed as a foil for the farinaceous foods so largely eaten in hot countries, and the practice is satisfactory in our own cli-mate in summer. For instance, pepper pancakes, cayenne sauce and peppered macaroni, some of the writer's hot weather dishes, all are mado ns hot with the expressed juico of rod garden pep-pers, or with pepper essence, as the palate can enduro. As these are special dishes readers will do well to keep these recipes, for thoy are not yet included in any of the writer's published books. CATEflKE SAUCE, naturally, hut, as her arrangements have been made and refreshiueuta provided, postponement is not to be contemplated; thus "weather permitting" is seldom put on an invitation card in town. Tennis and out of door games are the life and soul of n garden party in the country, and tho weather makes all the difference to those invited. Distant neighbors ure not expected tp face a long wet drive, but nearer neighbors mostly put in an appear-ance and take tho chance of the afternoon brightening. Invitations aro issued a week or more in advance. A long notice is more likely to secure the presence of the principal neigh-bors rather than a short one. On the other baud, a short notice often means that a lawn party is got up almost impromptu by taking advantage of the advent of mutual friends. "Tennis" should always be put on the cards when tennis is to be played, that the guests may dress themselves accordingly. It must be a lovely day to induce a hostess to venture upon having her re-freshments served under the trees. Of courao it is pleasant when this can be done, but too often a thunderstorm bursts upon the party and creates a panic, and a gen-eral rush into the house is the result. And, after all, the large dining room is the best, rendezvous on the hottest of days when a '.urgfuarty la assembled. SOCIAL ETIQUETTE. Ountuiuary Vsngi's at Lawu 1'uiUoj in Town and Country. Every ono knows something of tho dis-comfort that attends going to a lawn party on a wet afternoon, while a wot part ially ono luw even more disastrous effects. The latter gives a prolvibility of its clear-ing up, and leads people to venture on to wet lawns, and under dripping trees, aud up aud down moist and sticky gravel paths. To sit down is uncomfortable, to walk is ' even more so, aud the hostess hardly knows whether to rcceivo her guests out of doom or to convert the lawu party into an afternoon party in the house. Lawn parties which take place in town or in the immediate suburbs are generally fully at-tended, whatever the weat her may be. Tho guests thoroughly undorstand that the hosUas will receive in tho house if she can-not do so on the lawn, and that a lawn party will consequently resolve itself into a large afternoon party, alscnteeisui pre-venting iu being too great a crush.

It was on a street car bound tip town at about the time when the men and women who work in the great down town hive of business for the better part of the day are hurrying home. Every Beat was occupied when tho car stopped-an-two women boarded it. The first was un elderly woman, somewhat feeble. Tho second was younger, sturdy and ag-gressive looking. A good looking man of middle age arose from bis seat, and touching hia hat asked the elderly lady to be seated. Before she could sit down, however, the younger woman pushed her aside and Eat down herself. There was no one in the car who did not know that the man who had given up his seat intended it for the older woman, and the action of the younger one astonished everybody for a moment. Then half a dozen seats were vacated and the elderly woman took one of them. The man who had first given up his seat raised his hat to the woman who had taken the place not intended for her and said in a voice that could be heard throughout the car: "Madam, I believt) you to be among that class of women who are always complaining of man's luck of courtesy toward women. You will pardon me if I say that you are also ono of that class of women who tempt men to be discourteous." Then ho calmly proceeded to read his evening paper. An audiblo snicker ran, through the car and one woman whispered to an-other: "Served her right." The woman flushed and looked straight before her, paying no attention. She stood the looks of tho other passengers for fully half a dozen blocks. Then she signaled the conductor and, looking neither to the right nor the left, swept out of the car. A man who had curiosity enough to also leave tho car at the samo placo and watch her saw her board the neit uptown car that came along. Tho rohuko had had its effect. New York Mail and Express. WOMAN'S WORLD IN PARAGRAPHS. Which Hour la s Woman's Life Is the Happiest? Copyright by American Press Association The Ladies' Home Journal contains letters from a number of prominent wo-men in answer to tho question: Which is tho happiest hour in a woman's life? Frances Willard says the happiest hour in her life was that in which she was least conscious of herself and most up-lifted into holy thoughts and purposes, which is a beautiful answer. The hap-piest hour in Jennie June's life was the hour when she paid off a $10,000 mort-gage that it had taken ton years to liqui-date. Rose Terry Cooke, who preaches that a woman ought to obey her hus-band, believes that the happiest hour of a woman's life is tho hour of her death. Hose oughtto think that way. Anybody who believes such a horrid doctrine as Blie pretends to could not well think otherwise. The idea of "oboying" a man! Mrs. Frank Leslie declares the happiest hour of a woman's life is when she is dressing to meet her lover after long absence. But they are all wrong. The happiest hour of n woman's life is when she is asloep. There is no good reason why a woman should not earn her own living in paying employments unloss sho is tho mother of little children that demand her care. On genoral principles why should men support womon? Just as long as they do, jnst that long will women be depend-ent on them. When women have pecuniary inde-pendence all gates will open to them of their own accord. Tho way to get pe-cuniary independence is to go in for it and get it. From the remarks of certain ladies on tho subject of woinon'a bathing costumes and ball and dinner dresses we are to conclude that tho Creator did a most im-proper thing when ho made the human body, that magnificent and beautiful statuo of pink tinted flesh. Women are not a bit more immodest from wearing a bathing dress which will allow them to use tho muscles freely in swimming. There is a very old and noble saying, and it is this: "Evil to him who evii thinks." It ought, however, to read as follows: "Evil is in the heart of him who evil thinks." For four years Miss Cora L. Outcalt has been official stenographer of the supremo court of Nebraska, that grand young state which bus grown so won-derfully since the lait census. When this energetic girl was only 18 years old she was unrolling chirk of tho Nebraska house of representatives, and filled her office to tho satisfaction of all, The Nebraska State Journal says. With her savings in this placo sho went to St. Loius and took tho course in stenog-raphy..' Sim found work at her chosen occupation immediately. Since receiv-ing the appointment of clerk of the supreme court sho has legun the study of law, looking ahead to still further honors and emoluments. It will thus be seen that since she was IS this girl has been engaged iii steady and arduous labors, yet wo have no record that her health broke down once under the strain. Girls' health does not break down any more from work or study, as the old fogy doctors declared it would under the strain of higher education and general employment for tho sex. And they pro-fessed tho greatest solicitude for the per-petuation of tho race, these blessed doc-tor- e. Well, the race isn't dying out much as yet. The way to look young is to preservo tho child nature and not hit tho griefs and disappointments of life make any lasting impression of gloom upon you. Tho child breaks its heart over a broken toy, but forgets all about it next morn-ing. All our griefs are as broken toys. The youngest looking woman for her ago that I know said to me: "I do have the blues sometimes. 1 cry my eyes out all afternoon, and then get up and go to tho theatre and have a lovely time iu the evening." All this is sound philosophy, except the crying part. Don't do that. It is babyish, and hurts the complexion and eyes terribly. In tho counting and handling of money in tlie treasury department at Washing-ton men are nowhere compared with women in the matter of speed or the de-tection of counterfeit money. Senator Blair, the great introducer, ha? reported to the United States senato in behalf of tha majority members of tho committee on woman suffrage in favor of a constitutional amendment giving to women the right to vote. The report says: "Prejudice and custom have denied to woman the suffrage, but it is impossible to give a reason for the exercise of suf-frage by man which does not apply with equid or greater force in favor of woman suffrage." nullity Sailor Huts. The sailor hats will be worn for outing purposes more than ever, and those pro-vided for the wife and daughters of tho Prince of Wales are simple enough to be copied by the sweet girls of our own country. They are made of light weight wliito serge, have a head band of oiled silk, and are simply trimmed with a aerge ribbon and an enameled buckle of another pattern. Au inch, or even a half inch difference in tho height of tho crown or tho width of the brim makes all the difference in the world as to the hat suit-ing your own especial face, and will well repay tho thought and care thus be-stowed. While many persons contend that they are from their simple outlines becoming to uearly every one, the general verdict is that they are not for tho woman with a big nose, with ugly ears or with a heavy lower face, and tho woman with just these features that is, the big noso and the heavy lower face is very apt to be just the sort of woman who cares but little for the frivolities of life, and who yearns for jns that simple form of head-wea-r. Too bad that Bhe may not in-dulge her liking, but if she does it only makes her look absurd. Chicago Jour-nal An Old Soulier. A conspicuous figure in the procession at tho unveiling of the Leo monument, at Richmond, was the venerable Pro-fessor F. N. Crouch, the composer of "Kathleen Mavourneen." He is perhaps nearer 110 than 80 years of age, yet hale and hearty. Ho was arrayed in full uniform of Confederate gray, liaving come on from Baltimore to meet prob-ably for the last time his soldier com-rades of the old First Howitzers. Hia comrades say that no braver soldier ever fought with the artillery of tho army of northern Virginia. Exchange. While exercising a horse at Fort Col-lins, Colo., tho animal became enraged and attempted to bite its leader, Tha trainer succeeded in preventing the furi-ous beast from injuring him until the halter broke, when tho animal picked him up by the shoulder and throw him to the ground with great violence. Then burying his teeth in the flesh of the firoscrato man tho brute trampled upon trainer's chest was crushed, three ribs were broken and the flesh on all parts of his body was bruised and crushed. The present year is tho tercentenary of the discovery of the microscope, which iu its crude form was duo to Jansen, a spertaclo maker of Middloburg, Holland. The occasion is to bo celebrated by an international microscopic exhibition, which is to be shortly held at Antwerp, when an endeavor will be made to bring together a collection of instruments which will fairly show the progress of the microscope from its simple original ijrm to that of the present day. lliram Lukens went to work on The Doylestown (Pa.) Intelligencer La June, 18;;j, as printer's devil and lias been con-tinuously employed on that paper ever since, celebrating his fifty-eight- h anni-versary in tho office on Juno 21.

His plan is to burn the seeds, and to convey the smoke through a little pa-per tube to the hole iu the tooth.
