For turnip nrcens, gnjthor the young
plants when tho roots nro JuBt form
ing and whllo thoy nro tender; wash
thoroughly and put' on to boll with u
plcco of fat salt pork. Let tho meat
cook for an hour before the greens nro
added, as thoy will need but an hour's
cooking. To make- the dumplings to
servo with tho greens, tako a pint of
sifted corn meal, add soda, salt and boil
ing water to make a stiff dough. When
this Is cool enough to handle, dip the
hands In water nnd shape tho dough
Into small dumplings; drop ono by one
into the boiling greens and cook them
for half an hour. Dip out with a skim
mer. Tako up the greens and drain
and chop fine, and pile with the dump

Have ready a spider with hot lard, a
tablespoonful will bo sufficient for an

corn, add seasonings and stir con
stantly to prevent burning. When
cooked, set back and let stenm for a
half hour to cook tho corn well. Servo
this with fried chicken.
New Potatoes. Boll, drain, and
when tender put tho potatoes into a
dish with a lump of butter, add a cup
of cream which has been cooked with
flour to chicken; pour this over tho po
tatoes and serve.

fine and pour over them hot bacon fat
with bits of tho cooked 'bacon; season

in this, there will bo scraggy lines or
