Tho kabob is broiled meat, b u t is
broiled in so ridiculous a fashion in to
bo really funny. Tho peddler uses u E t­
ilo charcoal furnace, som ethin;' liko
those in uso by cu r plumbers. In it bo
keeps up a sm all but hot lire. A ttached
to tho side of tho furnace is a lot of
iron skewers. When a custom er a p ­
proaches, tho lm wker takes a nmall piece
o f m eat, m utton o rg e a t, tho la tte r b e in g
th e m ost popular, cu ts it w ith a sharp
k n ife in to u long ribbon, w inds i t around
th e skew er and places it ovi r tho char-
coal tiro. Some of the drippings are c o l­
lected, nnd, w ith a little s a lte r sa lt und
spico, m akes a pleasant sauce ft r the
kabob w hen it is done. Tho cooking is
very rapid. W hat w ith (lie beat of the
tire and tlio thinness of tho m eat, it is
thoroughly done in tw o or three m in an s.
Tlio green cakes are nothing more or

They aro pale yellow, yi How gray and

ishing, anil they are certainly very ap­
p etizin g mid p alatab le when fresh from
tho oven. A lm ost any kind of green leaf
w hich is used as hum an ford serves for
