HOW TO SERVE OYSTERS
TTEUK are some old ways of serv
ing oysters that may never
have been brought to the attention
of the present generation:
Prepare f>0 oysters, pour water
over them In a sieve and look over
carefully for any broken shell. Save
the liquid and add to it enough milk
to make one pint. Put two tea
spoons of butter and two of flour
into a sauce pan, and the oyster
liquor and milk and stir anti)
smooth and thick, adding one tea
spoon of salt, a few dashes of pep
per. The above, with the oysters
added, will be creamed oysters. For
the fricassee add the yolks of two
eggs lightly beaten and a teaspoon
of finely minced parsley. Serve on
squares of buttered toast.
Oysters Fried in Oil.
Drain 25 fat oysters, lift each care
fully by the muscular, hard part,
place on a board and dry well with
a soft cloth. Dust with salt and
cayenne. Beat two eggs without
separating and add to them two
tablespoons of hot water. Put on
a board a quart of dry bread crumbs
—do not use cracker crumbs. Dip
the oysters into the crumbs, then
Into the egg and again into the
crumbs. Use the flnger3, as stick
ing a fork into the oyster spoils the
flavor. After all are covered ar
range them, without touching, on a
board. Have the fat hot, using any
kind of sweet fat; place the oysters
in a wire basket and fry, six at a
time, until brown. They should be
brown iu two minutes. Over cook
ing will toughen the oyster. Drain

Swans are perfect models of con

and the sexes share the domestic
responsibilities, notes a writer in
the New York Herald Tribune.
The downy young when first
hatched are not the “ugly duck

little creatures, clothed In silky,

Geese, like swans, pair for life,
and the young birds remain In the
company of their parents for near

Endowed with keen Intelligence
and extreme wariness, they can be
depended on to maintain a fair
degree of abundance as long ns ade
quate wintering grounds are afford
ed them. But, above all, they, like
swans, require freedom from mo
