Maria Theresa strasse, Innsbruck
' N many respects the Austrian Ty
rol Is the most picturesque corner
of Europe, says Thomas O'Hagan
in the Detroit Free Press. It has,
too. a beauty all Its own. Its chief
city, Innsbruck, which was known by
the name of Innspons In the days of
Caesar, has a most charming situa
tion. The snow-capped Bavarian Alps
stand as sentinels at ita very gates.
.. This gives It a royal setting. They are
God's watch towers royal watch tow-
; rs on the earth.
To many travelers Austria makes
, greater appeal than Germany. In the
first place, there is more variety and
, Individuality in Its people. Then the
. proud Hapsburg line reaches so far
back and lights up the pages of his
tory with so much splendor and vl-
, cissltude of fortune, that you turn
from the new realms of the earth to
tile history-dowered castles of Aus
tria which was great when Guelph and
Ghlbelllne contended on the streets of
. fair Florence.
, There Is probably not a prouder
people In Europe than the Austrlans.
But, of course, in the Austrian empire
are many races many tongues. The
Hungarian, the Bohemian, the Croa
tian, the Dalmatian, the Pole, the Ga-
. llclan, the Tyrolean all these differ
oue from the other. In the Tyrolean
the Teuton and the Latin meet, and It
Is an excellent blending. When you
take, for Instance, the Teuton of the
north of Germany, his character and
temperament are too hard and cold
and material to attract. Indeed, you
cannot find In the Teuton of the north
that warmth and radlutlon which
mark the men and women of the Tyro
lean valley. The climate, too, in the
Tyrol seems to be a blending of Italy
and Norway without the extreme ten-
. denotes of either. The strength of the
north and the tenderness of the south
meet at Innsbruck and unite in a
Known to Ancients as Rhaetla,
The Tyrol as an ancient realm
reaches very far In history. Together
with a portion of eastern Switzerland
the Tyrol was known to Greek and
Roman writers as Rhaetla. Horace
sings of "The Alpine Rhaetla long
unmatched In fight." The Romans,
who were a most practical people, built
a road through the Tyrol as a thor
oughfare between Italy and Germany.
Perhaps the moBt dramatic episode
or chapter In the history of the Tyrol
Is that which centers around the name
of Andreas Hofer. This chapter of
Tyrolean history la known as the Pa-
trlotlo war of 1809. Andreas Hofer Is
to the Tyrolese what William Tell Is
to the Swiss and Bruce and Wallace to
It is the time of the great Napoleon,
when his conquering sword gleams lu
triumph on every battlefield lu Europe,
In 1S)5 the Austrlans were defeated
at TJIm and a French army undor Mar
shal Ney occupied Innsbruck. Then
came the battle of AusterllU, which
shattered the power of Austria and the
trenty of Prt'ssburg, by which Tyrol
and Vovnrlheru were given up to na
varla, lu 1806 the Bavarians took for
mnl possession of this new territory,
The Tyrol people rose against their
new masters, and the figure that
stands out In bold relief In this im
tlonnl rising Is Andreas Hofer, an Inn
keeper of Snndyland, In the Passe
valley. He forthwith went to Vienna,
Interviewed the Archduke John, and
returned to his home invested with
full power as commander In chief of
the national forces. This was in th
beginning of April, 1809, and so well
did Hofer lead his countrymen who
flocked to his standard that before the
end of April the Tyrol was again
free except the fortress of Kufsteln,
till occupied by the Bavarians.
But at this moment Austria gave
the command of the troops to Chan
teler, who, In a few days, lost all that
Hofer and his peasant army had won,
On July (, 1809, Austria, vanquished
at WiRram, was forced to sign the
armistice of Znaira, and In this con
vention the Tyrol was Ignored.
Andreas Hofer, however, refused to
abide by this convention, and, hidden
way In an Impenetrable gorge, he
aent from valley to valley his call to
arms.' A price was placed on the
bead of the rebel, and as Is always
the case, a wretch was found to be
tray Hofer's retreat. Four French offi
cers and a battalion of infantry escort
ed him as a prisoner to Mantua, where
he was tried by court-martial and con
demned to death. A platoon of sol
diers carried out the death sentence,
Hofer refusing either to have his eyes
bandaged or to kneel down.
Center of Art and Literature.
Innsbruck Is a great intellectual cen
ter. Its university, founded by the
Emperor Leopold I, in 1677, is recog
nized as very strong in the depart
ments of medicine and philosophy,
The Jesuits have charge of the theo
logical and philosophical departments,
Here it was that the great historian
of the popes, Professor Pastor, lec
tured for many years before he was in
vited to take a position in the Vatican
I library by Pope Leo XIII. Professor
Pastor still resides In Rome.
Innsbruck has been a Bhrtne, too, for
artists and literary men through the
centuries because of the wealth of
art, especially bronze statues, in Its
churches. Its monuments and trlum
phal arches greet the eye at every cor
ner. The people of Innsbruck, too, are
very fond of the drama and a local
stock company puts on during the
theatrical season many of Shake
speare's plays, translated into German
As you saunter through the narrow
streets of the city you are Bhown

regarded as the Tyrolean Westminster

with the house of Hapsburg. They

bruck. Amongst its inmates have
been the Emperor Joseph II, Louis
king of Bavaria, Andreas Hofer, Heln-

well that in company with several stu

To Get Rid of a Cold.
If you find you have caught cold in
spite of precautions, nip It la the bud.
The time to attack a cold In order to
cure it is at its very start. At the first
sniffle or the first cough bogln to fight
It. Drink pleuty of fresh wator, eat
lightly, and get plenty of sleep. Be
fore going to bed take a hot bath and
drink a hot lemonade. Then cover up
warmly and be sure there la no
draft between the windows and the
door, but have the window open enough
to get plenty of air In the room. This
treatment will probably cause you to
perspire freely, and you must be care
ful not to throw off the covers and ex
pose your overheated body to more
It this treatment is taken at the
start and carefully adhered to. It will
probably drive the cold right out of
your system. But if you do not treat
It at the very beginning It will have to
run Its course gradually.

WORTH WHILE RECIPES
8AVORY METHODS OF PREPARING
Tit-Bits to Serve With Game or Cold
Meat New Ideas for Vegetables
Combinations of Cheese
Here are some worth while recipes
and ways of preparing food that will
give a different savor to the viands
Take a small quantity of boiled
cod. flake fine, add enough mayon
naise to make spreading paste, spread
on lettuce leaf between rye slices.
Salmon and tunny fish may be fixed in
the same way, or Instead of the may
onnaise add enough catchup and sea
soning to make the paste. Cold boiled
lobster, cold boiled shrimp may be
shredded or cut fine and prepared In
the same way. Many will like them
with the French dressing, however,
rather than the mayonnaise.
Game. Minced chicken, guinea fowl
or turkey are good mixed with a
tiny bit of chowchow, sweet pickle,
current jelly or orange marmalade, as
well as with good mayonnaise made
Meats. All cold meats, thinly sliced
or minced, are acceptable with any of
he dressings, or lightly spreading the
bread with apple Bauce before lay
ing on the sliced meat.
Vegetables French peas that have
been stewed, mashed to a paste, sea
soned to taste, lighted with a little
whipped cream and a teaspoonful of
chopped ham or tongue make an ex
cellent filling. The macedolne of vege
tables, drained and finely chopped,
mixed with mayonnaise, is good.
Grated with onion with a little fine
ly minced cold roast beef, pepper and
salt and a few drops of mustard dress
ing it is quite appetizing if one likes
Cheese and Sweets. Combinations
with cream cheese which has been
softened with whipped cream are nu
merous. Little finely chopped pre
served ginger and a tablespoonful of
the sirup mixed to a spreading paste;
puree of chestnuts mixed with the
cheese, orange marmalade, bar-le-duc,
a little of any of the preserved fruits,
or finely chopped fresh fruit may be
blended with the cheese. If needed, a
little mayonnaise or whipped cream
may be used to bind the paste. A
little grated cheese sprinkled on tris
cults, then placed in an oven for a
minute or two to melt, with another
triscult placed on it, are frail to carry
out, but very nice sandwiches.
Pumpkin Pudding. Into a pint of
stewed pumpkin beat the whipped
yolks of five eggs, two pints of milk,
three-fourthB of a cupful of Bugar and
half a teaspoonful- each of powdered
mace, nutmeg and cinnamon. Last of
all stir in lightly the Btiffly beaten
whites of five eggs, turn the mixture
Into a buttered pudding dish and bake

To remove fruit stains from table-
clothB and serviettes apply powdered
starch to the stained parts, and leave
for several hours till all the discolora
tion has been absorbed by the starch.
Always put scrubbing brushes to dry
with bristles face downward. This
lengthens their lives considerably, as
If dried the other way the moisture
naturally soaks Into the wood and
rots the bristles.
Cut the crusts from Btale bread and
break In bits, cover with sour milk
and set aside over night. In the morn
ing add one level teaspoonful of soda
to each pint of the bread and milk
mixture; beat until it is smooth and
foamy. You may need to add some
sweet milk to make the batter thin
enough. Season with salt and fry on
griddle. If eggs are added to the above
the cakes are much like omelets and
are very fine with Jelly between them.
Potatoes a la Milanese.
Take as many potatoes as are re
quired. Choose large ones, bake them
till soft then cut off the tops and
scoop out the lnsldes. Rub the potato
thrnueh a sieve Bnd add a tablespoon.-

Melt one ounce of butter lu a stewpan,
stir in the potatoes and make it hot,
then fill the cases with It and put them

Mix a cupful of sugar, three table-
spoonfuls of butter, a cupful of cream,
three cuptuls of flour sifted with two

EASY WAY TO FILTER WATER
Simple and Comparatively Without
Cost Excellent Lamp for the Sick
It often happens that pump water is
filled with sand cr gritty substance,
and one must wait until it has settled
before It is fit to use. If this is the
case, an easy way to filter it is to take
a rather fine sponge, just large
enough to fit into the spout of the
pump. Attach a wire to the sponge,
so that when it is pushed up in the
spout it can easily be removed. When
the water runs through this sponge
it will come out clear, for the sand
will be collected by the sponge. Be
sure not to get the sponge too large,
or It will stop the flow of water. Take
the sponge out at least twice a week
and clean it thoroughly.
A small lamp can be made for the
sickroom by taking a bottle such as
mucilage comes in and attaching to
it by a wire a short piece of brass or
copper tubing one-eighth of an inch
In diameter. A thick piece of cotton
cord makes the wick, and the chimney
Is simply a tumbler with the bottom
cut out. These lamps are safe and
will burn without odor. Lard oil will
be found a good substitute for kero
sene and will be less apt to smoke. '
Very serviceable brackets for a
towel roller can be made by using or
dinary wire hooks, as shown in the
Illustration. The roller is made of
wood a broom handle will do and
two nails with the heads knocked off
are inserted in the ends. These are
put through the opening in the ends
the hooks, so that the roller can
revolve easily. When it is necessary
change towels, spring the hooks
apart and slip out the roller.
It is a needless waste of flre to keep
