Heallby meat is firm, clean and at

mate, when proporly lolled, properly
cleansed and leisurely bandied, it is
not only unnecessary but positively
deleterious to froezo it The differ
ence between moat killed in the Chi
cago method and that killed accord
ing to the methods so long and suc
cessfully practiced by Californian
butchers is apparent at a glance.
Great efforts have been made to in
troduce meat killed in the Chicago
style, but they have been unsucceos
The proof is positivo that what
may suit the eastern palate and stand
well in Eastern climate does not meet
with the tastes and requirements of
Californians and does not Buit Pacific
coast climate. The rapid methods
adopted In the abattoirs, the spray
ing with hot water and diluted am
monia and then tho sudden freezing
rob tho meat of its natural flavor,
substitute an artificial taste and give
to tho meat as soon as it is exposed
to the air and commences to thaw a
soggy, unappetizing look.
In tho methods adopted for years
by tho old Son Francisco butchers tho
meat is wiped clean with cloths
wrung out in cold water and is then
allowed to hang. Handled in this
way it will keep perfectly healthy for
days and is in appearance and taste
all that can bo desired. San Fran

Perhaps it ia because sho is colored
that Miss Lily May Tucker, a professor
of tho divine art of cooking at Quogue,
N. Y., knows her civil rights. Anyway
she obtained one of her rights where
strong men would merely havo sworn
and walked. Wishing to go from
Quogno to Riverhead Monday, by way
of Manor, to do some shopping, Miss
Lily asked for a ticket by that route,
Tho ticket was supplied to her, and she
paid for it. Then sho boarded the train

there informed that the train which last
tummer ran from Manor to Riverhead
was not running this season. Right there
is whero a more white man would havo
made a feeble exhibition of the inferior

But Lily I She just looked over that
station agent and said:
"You mean it hasn't been running,
young num. It's a-going to run, 'cause
Tve got a ticket that calls for my trans
portation from Manor to Riverhead,
and Pm going by that route."
Then she sat down on a bench and let
the station agent walk tho platform.
After awhile ho went into his office and
telegraphed something to somebody.
When he got an answer, ho went out and
looked at Miss Lily's ticket. Then he
telegraphed Borne more, and some mora
was telegraphed to him. Then he went
out again, wiping his brow, and said
that if Miss Lily insisted upon going by
the route called for on her tickot a
special train would havo to bo made up
to carry her. Miss Lily made answer:
"I ain't a-sisting; I'm just a waiting
here for that train what's going to take
me to Riverhead.'
And the train was made up, and Miss
Lily in her lonely majesty was trans
ported to Riverhead as per hor tickot.

Financial Stringency Strikes New
New York, Aug. 3. Colla P. Hunt
ington, president of the Southern Pa
clflo has dictated the following upon the
situatien: "If congress will repeal the
Sherman act, make, say $10 legal ten
der of silvei,and not allow any paper
issued u d r $6, that would put a large
amount of silver in circulation. Then
let tho government issue (300,000,000
gold bonds, bearing InUrest not exceed
ing 3 per cent., they to be used as col
lateral for national currenoy, and let
banks have par In currency on old
fours. That would restoro confidence,
make money plenty and, I believe, be
a good thing for silver."
The Limit Reached.
Washington, Aug. 8. No more
silver certificates will be Issued by tin
treasury department for tho present, as
the limit prescribed by law has been
reached. That is to say, as many silver
certificates are now outstandlugas there
are standard silver dollars coined in
the treasury to redeem them. Un
der the Bland act 380,930,874 standard
silver dollars have been coined.
London, Aug. 8. A meeting was
held today at the ofllclal nsidonoe of

Most all leadlug bankers were present.
Balfour made an address and disclaimed
all political motives, and alluded to the
anxiety felt throughout the business
world connected with curronoy changes
In India and the action that might be
taken by theUnlted States government.
The gold standard Balfour declared
would never satisfy the commercial
wants, while double standard alone
would prevent dangerous oscllliationa
In trade. He commended International
agreement, fixing ratio of value be

Yachting may bo puraucd chiefly
for pleasure, but incidentally it is for
sharpening tho appetite. Tho capac

is proverbial, and unlostt scasicknesp
intervenes ho becomes u gormandia
er from tho timo ho leaves shore un
til ha lands on it again. So thor
oughly nppreeintod is this that the
steward's department on yachts and
tho great Atlantic steamers is made
a very important office, and nothing
contributes so much to tho pleasure
of tho voyage as a comploto and va
ried larder of the most tempting na
ture. Social life on yachts centers around
the table in tho richly upholstered
cabin, whero tho ontertaimnont can
bo as expensive as tho owner desires.
Indeed tho cost of yachting ia often
tn direct proportion to the amount
of money devoted in eating and
drinking. No less important is tho
dining room on board tho first class
ocean steamers, and the four or five
moalu a day that aro served aro in
dicativo of the passongers' marvel
ously increased appetites.
Tho dining service is elaborato and
costly, equaling in quantity anil va
riety that of tho finest hotels in the
world. For a six or eight day voy
ago the floating palaces aro provi

sized city for several days. Every
thing is of the finest quality, served

that aro not excelled by any, but
there is a slight savor of Germany
and hor people in the various odd
compounds and mixtures that daily
appear on tho table. Tho English
steamers aro likewise distinctively
English or American, and tho tables
are loaded with all tho delicacies no
much appreciated by tho travolor.
Most of the large eteamors furnish
four or fivo meals a day, and each
one is elaborato. To attend thebo ta
bles about 100 cooks and stewards
aro employed, 80 or 40 saloon waiters
and a dozen or more carvers, dish
washers and stewardesses. Tho force
of men required for the kitchon and
the dining room on a large ocean
steamer is thus much largor than the
crews of many ocean ships. Break
