The New Bread
As endorsed anjd recommended by
tHe New-YorkHealth Authorities.
Royal Unferrnentcd, Bread is peptic, palatable, most
healthful, and may be eaten warm and fresh without
discomfort even by those, of delicate digestion, which
Is not true of bread made in any other way.
To make One Loaf of Royal Unfermented Bread :
I quart flour, I teaspoonful ult, half a tcsspoonful sugar,
a heaping teaspoonfula Royal Baking Powder, cold boiled
potato about the size of largo hen's egg, and water.
Sift together thoroughly flour, tall, sugar, and baking powder; rub In the
potato; add sufficient water to mix smoothly and rapidly Into a stiff batter,
about aa toft ai for pound-cake; about a pint of water to a quart of flour will
be required mora or leu, according to the brand and quality of the flour
uied. Do not make a 11111 dough, like yeast bread. Pour the batter into a
greaied pan, 4 H by 8 inchei, and 4 inchei deep, filling about half full. The
loaf will rite to fill the pan when baked. Duke In very hot oven 45 minutes,
placing paper over ftrit 15 minutei' baking, to prevent cruiting too loon on

The best baking powder made is, as shown by analy

it is the only powder which will raise large bread perfectly.

The Structure of Ferns.
When flowering Plants iisuallv make

These spores germinate and go through the
same process subsequently that flowers go
through In the production of aeeda, The
spores expand when the germinating time
comes, and form a flat, green membrane:
what are then really the flowers appear on
this membrane. As s geueral rule, after
these fern flowers have matured, tbe mem
brane dries up and disappears. In one fam
ily of ferns, however, natives of New llol

Every year a new blade is formed, which
spreads over the old ones. The large plant

All our crew was already shipped, ns
we were to sail in three weeks tune, ami
we were trying to see how pretty we
could make the old packet look Ix-fori'
we cast oil' from the dock ami pointed
her nose to blue water. Our sailors
were neither Dutchmen nor il. items

the water fairly running out of their

odors of pliiuiH niitl spice.
The Coroinandul was 0110 of the fast
est clippers hailing from Salem, and it
was the ambition of every old woman
who hud sons to dispose of to get them
aboard of her. Mothers used to bring
their boys down to the dock and waylay
tho skipper. Some of them would fall
down on their uiiirrowboiics and just
beg of him to take their boys. II was 11
proud day for me when I was shipped,
and on that occasion I felt as haughty
as a dog with two tails. This was my
second voyage, and Iho skipper took
quite an interest 111 1110. 1 was given
chargo of his cabin and used to keep his
traps in order when at sea, tho steward
being a little old and slinky on his pins.
Tho day before the ship was to sail
Captain Crowuinsliield brought his wife
back from Boston and installed her in
the dearest littlo old fashioned cottage
that evor was. It was covered witli
creepers ami vines, ami in tho littlo gar
des that surrounded it hollyhocks, sweet
Williams and any amount of other scent
ed posies grew luxuriantly and crf timed
Mrs. Crowuinsliield cume aboard the
ship that afternoon, and while her hus
band was at tiie custom house getting
his clearance papers nnd transuding
other business she and I fixed up the
captain's cabin. It did my heart good
toseo that dainty little woman decorat
ing the cabin with ribbons and putting
everything in apple pio order. The con
trivances for liis comfort that were
evolved from her shapely littlo head
were so ingenious that I fairly opened
ty mouth with admiration. A lucky
fellow was Jack Crowuinsliield, always
eating tho fat and drinking the sweet of
lifo. Lint whilo this labor of love was
occupying the littlo woman's mind and
busy lingers big tears were welling tip
in her blue eyes, for tomorrow was the
day of Borrowful parting, and she would
not be likely to see that big husband of
hors for at least two years. I fell in love
witli her at sight, and for nearly two
yours 1 dreamed about tier.
In tho morning tliero wus a large
crowd to see us olf. When the skipper
stepped aboard I noticed ho looked sad
and grave so different from his usual
rockless nnd jovial appearance. Mrs.
Crowninsliield did not see tho ship olf.
The strain would have been too much
for her. They gave us three cheers ns
we spread our canvas to the breeze and
sailed out to sea. Tho wind was fair
and it was a delightful August day
Wo gavo her every stitch sho would
iitwuer under and Salem was soon out
Nothing particular happened during
the passngo out. Tho skipper conlidod
to me that he intended to make a collce
tion of "curios' for Ins wife, who was a
particular admirer of things from for
eign parts. I was only a youngster, as
1 have said before, but if the captain had
only known how madly I was in love
with his wife he would doubtless have
kicked me around tho decks. I think 1
was fifteen years old at the time, and
was as foolish us I was young. It is as
tonishing what iutluence a kindly word
from a pretty woman has ttxti a sailor
Ixiy accustomed tofower halfience than
ticks! Besides, my love was akin to
However, I made up my mind that if
urine would make Mrs. Crowiiinsbield
happy 1 would do my best to afford her
pleasure. So when we were bowling
along through the northeast trades and
the flying fish came alxiard 1 used to
pick out the finest and largest and pre
serve them for keeping, after the recipe
of an old sailor, who was something of
a taxidermist. These fish I would mount
on panels of wood given to ine by the
carpenter, and with their wings extended
with ingenious skill (though I av it who
shouldn't) they looked qnite ornamental.
Tbe captain did bis best to make a
smart passage. The Coromandel was in
ber best trim and waa kept moving all
the time. When we got down to about
HI degs. south latitude, and wuru in Iioxh
of gotting a piping westerly liree.o with
which to run down, we wore hanicred
by a dead calm. It was quite lucky for
mot but the skipper fretted and fumed
like a newly caught bear In a pit. lie
wanted to make tho smartest passage on
record. The ship was surrounded by
Docks of Ca(ie pigeons, Cajio hens and an
occasional albatross. Tho pigeons, which
are birds of lieuutiful plumage, wore
caught easily with hook and lino. All
you had to do was to throw over your
lino baitod with a morsel of suit jsirk
and haul them in hund over fist. 1
caught sovoral hundred and grow ipiite
expert in skinning them and curing tho
skins. They were all Intended for Mrs.
It was a triumphant hour for mo when
1 captured an albatross. 1 am 1111 old,
broken down man now, having been a
sailor boy and man for more than fifty
years, and chictty in tho southern trade.
For voyage after voyngo I have tried to
catch an albatross witli bait, but failed
always. Capu hens Iho vultures of the
sea you can cqitiiro at will. They will
bite at any garbage. But tho albatross
is a cleanly lii.-d and 1 never knew ouo
to be taken with hook and line.
This morning, however, I was on tho
forecastle head, bunging out a shirt to
dry, when the albatross blundered on
board. He was a magnilicout bird, ouo
of the finest 1 over saw. Hesottled down
on tho deck and looked like a sailor that
had lost his bearings. In a moment en
sued a buttle that bent hollow the tilt of
the Knight of the Sorrowful Figure in
his duel with ho windmills. 1 grubbed
him by tho neck and he thrashed at me
with bill and wing. The watch below,
hearing the no'lse, camo running on deck
and rescued mo, all covered with blood.
For tho next two days I was engaged on
his skin. It used tip all my arsenical
soup, and I had to get a bottle of red
pepper from the stownrd to complete tho
task. It was all for Mrs. Crowninsliield.
Did any misfortune happen the ship
after the killing of the albatross? Not a

Wo got to Colombo on the hundredth
day out from Salem a capital passage
in those days. Lvory rupee I could scrape
up wasspent in gathering togothor curios
for Mrs. Crowuinsliield. My father, n
well to do Salem merchant, had thought
fully placed in the captain's hands n
couple of hundred dollars to be doled
out to ine during our stay on the Indian
const. I bought a big cedar wood trunk
with quaint silver handles, and in this
moth proof receptacle I stowed away all
my precious bird skins and mounted fly
ing fish. My love grew madder than ever.
I had a letter of introduction to a
charming English family living near Ka
duwellu, a Singhalese village on the
southern bank of the Kaluny river, about
a day's journey in bullock wagon from
Colombo. 1 easily obtained leave of ab
sence while tho ship was discharging her
cargo, and spent a week there thoroughly
enjoying myself. My host niudo things
very pleasant for me, und we took many
excursions in the neighborhood that
pleased 1110 much,
One of the tainous resorts thereabout
was a Uuddhi8t temple, irreverently
called a joss house by heathens and bar
barians. Cut out of the natural rock, it
was shaded by banyan trees, whoso big
leaves-, shaped like a heart, quivered con
tinuully in uspen fashion.
Inside tho temple, which was guarded
by a fat, good natural priest clad in a
yellow robo, reclined the image of Bntl-
dliu, leaning on his left arm. Tho priest
showed us around tho templo, and I ex
plored evory uook und comer. Carefully
concealed behind a curtain was u little
niche in which wero arranged a number
of littlo idols, evidently the priest's own
particular Laros and Penates. One was
the quaintest and most picturesque tiling
of the kind you oversaw. It was carved
out of 11 block of teak, and was four feet
high. It hail three heads, each of which
was supplied with three eyes of greenish
stones which looked like emeralds.
The priest wouldn't sell me this idol,
and in fact looked quite offended when
I offered to purchase it. He was propi
tiated and appeased, however, by the
welcome gift of a rupee.
I was bound to get that idol for Mrs.
Crowninsliield. Accordingly I laid my
plans with wluit I thought was rare
skill, I bought a little canoe from a na-
j tivo for a trillo and concealed it in the
jungle near the river. 1 knew thai if 1
attempted to steal tho idol and take it to
Colombo overland I should be detected,
snd probably murdered by the super
stitious Singhalese. Therefore the river
was my sole hope. The tide would carry
me down swiftly and I could easily
reach my ship.
One pitch dark night I made for the
joss house. The fat old priest was asleep.
You could hear hissnoresiifnroll. There
wero neither locks nor bolts on the por
tal, und two little lamps of coconnut oil
served to innko darkness visible. 1 knew
the latitude and longitude of the shrine
perfectly and soon had tho idol in my
(;rasp. Was it only imagination that
Hindu mo think it trembled as I hugged
it to my liosoin nnd made for the canoe?
I launched my little craft and paddled
vigorously down the river. The current
was rapid. The boat struck a sunken
tree and in an instant capsized. I clung
to nn overhanging branch for my lifo.
Now 11 strange thing happened. The
idol, with a glare of baleful light glit
tering from its nine green eyes, swam
np the stream, cleaving the water with
the impetuosity of a salmon trout. It
had suddenly come to life. This was
too much for u.e. I lost consciousness.
When I recovered I was in my friend's
bungalow. It appears that a party of
fishermen going out to catch prawns for
the morning dish of curry had seen me
clinging to the tree. They had recog

That coon of Rueger's, which hat

He next made an attack on a number

The "Oyster" ol the Turkey,
Many will recall the oft repeated story
of the young epicure, Brillat Savariu'a
son, who ordered thirty turkeys for his
dinner. When his father reprimanded
him for such extravagance on an occa
sion when he dined alone, the youth re
called the fact that there was one portion
of the turkey which the father had al
ways reserved for himself the very tid
bit of the bird and as there were but
two small portions of it in each bird the
order could in no way be called extrava
gant. This tidbit is known as the "oyster"
of the turkey, and probably not one car
ver in twonty can tell you exactly where
it lie.). It is not, as many suppose, a
piece of the White meat of the breast.
The breast is composed of only two dis
tinct layers on each side, the upper and
lower fillets. Tho "oyster," in fact, is a
portion of exceedingly tender dark meat,
which lies in the hollow on each side of
the backbone near and just above the

one will note that their shape is a long

one at table who can appreciate the best

Go into a room whore you will be quiet

and read two hours aloud to yourself,
keeping your teeth together. Do thit
every two or three days, or once a week

read slowly and distinctly, moving tho
lips, but not the teeth. Then, when con

There is no city in tho United States
which might bo called the city of
churches with more appropriateness
than W ashington. They are not partic
ularly large or imposing, these Wash
ington churches, but there is an im
mense number of them. As a matter of
fact, the capital contains nearly 200
churches. The Methodist denomination
claims 52. The Baptists come next with
45, then the Episcopalians with 26 and
the Presbyterians with 21. The Roman
Catholics have 13, the Lutherans 10, the
Congregationulists 4, the Hebrews and
the Christians 2 each and the Unitarians,
the Universnlists and the Swedenbor-
gians 1 each. Besides these there are
half a dozen nonsectarian bodies.
