Fattening (twt ths sol purpose

of an industry in Frarx-e, whrrs the
novel occupation is carried on in order
that choice material may be obtained
for that tfistinctirtly French morsel.
pate de foie gra. French packer
har recently been contiderahlr
arouied liecause the ahorse wai made
aRalnat them that they substitute beef
juet ami pork for what are termed
"dueased (roose livera." This they de
nounce as not only ludicrously improb
able but wholly without foundation,
says a lindon paper.
In the first place, they contend that
a f attest p-one liver is no more disease'.!
than the meat of an overfed hog. lV'th
are abnormal, and in that sense only
mifrht be refrnrded as a product of un
aanltary condition. When a goose is
beinjj prepared for fole gras it is usual
ly confined for a time at least by a
tether fastened to a stake, beside
which it waits w ith a henlthy apatite
for its frequently siipliiMl portion of
American corn me.il, which is the food
chiefly relied upon f,.r fattrnititr. The
ffoiwe is not encouraged to tke t'
much exercise, any more than ni y
other fattening animal. He is not fciV
for his health, but to incline him to
take on fat. The result of this is to
greatly enlarge the Iher, which is re
garded asthc most valuable part of tho
Kole gras d'ole, the fat goose liver. Is
prepared for use and export In several
forms, nch of which is calculated to
meet the whims of fastidious people.

another is prueede foie gras. Tl e fi.ie

except the fat or oil of ti e liver Itself.
The pate de foic grns of caiiinu'rce
consist of the conked liver rucked ii
tin boxes of standard sie which the
liver is roughly cut to fit. The: space
not occupied by the liver is tilled with
the trniiiiniiL's of the liver or pork fine
ly hashed am! picsied in. Over this Is
poured the melted fat, si n'ctiir.es of
the liver and st'inclimtn of the beef
