Cuatlllan Calalne. Oil and pepper are the two things that especially characterize the Oastilian cuisino. , OQQof'the favorite dishes in Gnba'is"tasajo , " which is simply dried 'meat ' , cooked with tomatoes , red pep pers nnd onions. "Tripa a la Andaluza" is another preparation frequently seen. As the name indicates , the basis is boiled tripe , which is cooked with beans end potatoes , and always served with the small red Spanish sausage known as "Bntafarra Catalina. " A similar sausage , only black , is known as"Buta- farra Astoriaua. " "Ohilo con carne , " which evprybody eats , is nothing more than a thick stew of beef ( carne ) and beans seasoned with chiles. Spanifih "tortillas" are corn cakes flavored with red peppers , and differ from tlio Mexican tortilla in thttt the latter , when properly made , are rolled in chopped vegetables. A salad a la Espanola is prepared of lettnco ind celery , with a few sliced tomatoen tnd poppers. Served with French dress ing it is very good. The Spanish soups are as a rule a lit tle too heavy for the American taste , which runs more toward the consomme. They are thick decoctions , full of vege tables , and look frightfully greasy Soup , however , does not have the im portant role among the Spaniards that it playe in French domestic economy , and is an article of secondary impor tance. The dishes named are pretty apt to appear ore long on homo menus , nud it is interesting to know in advance what they are composed of. New Or leans Times-Democrat. Hooks Rather Than Food. Success gives an interesting anecdote told by Agassiz of his visit when a young man to the great German nat uralist , Professor Lorenz Oken. The professor received his guest with warm enthusiasm , but apparent embar rassment. He showed his visitor the laboratory and the students at work , also his cabinet ; and lastly his splendid library of boobs pertaining to zoological science , a collection worth some § 7,000 , and well deserving the glow of pride which the owner manifested as he ex piated on its excellence. The dinner hour came , and then the embarrassment of the great German reached its maxi mum point. "M. Agassiz , " he said , with perturbation , "to gather and keep up this library exacts the utmost hus bandry of my pecuniary means. To ao- cornplish this I allow myself no luxuiy whatever. ' Hence my table is restricted to the plainest fare. Thrice a week our table boasts of meat , the other days we have only potatoes and salt. I very much regret that your visit has occurred upon a potato day. " And so the splen did Swftzer and the great German , with his students , dined together on potatoes and salt. And what must those students have enjoyed in the conversation of those remarkable men ! Telling : Him the Truth. "I think Willie is learning to smoke , " said his mother. "I wish yon to speak to him about it. " " What shall I say to him ? " asked his father. "Why , tell him the truth , of course. " And so "Willie was duly called up , and his father put on a severe look and Eaid : "Willie , I understand you are learn ing to smoke. Now , before it goes any further , I want to" tell you what the re sult ; may be. You may die in a year , and then again yon may live to be 100 years old. " " Why , John , " expostulated the boy's mother. "You told me to tell him the truth , " returned the father , "and there's hard ly a week goes by that I don't hear of some one close to the century mark who has smoked ever since he was 14 years old , while people who never smoked at all die in infancy with great frequency. ' ' It is sometimes difficult to get a man who smokes to look at the subject from the right point of : view. Chicago Post. Going ? Without Sleep. It is an interesting question to.studi- ous people how long a man can go without sleep. A physician asserts that no healthy man can overwork because eventually nature will compel him to fall asleep at hia task. A journalist re cently claimed to have worked 72 hours without sleeping. Humboldt said that when a young man he required only two hours sleep each night , but that in his old age he found he really needed as many as three or four. Victims sub jected to the Chinese torture of being kept continually awake die on or before the fifth day. By far the most inspiring example , however , is that of one of the saints , who is related to have lived 19 years without sleep and to have remain ed standing a large portion of that time. San Francisco Argonaut. Irascible Cnrlyle. A lady who lived near Thomas Car lyle kept Cochin China fowls , and their crowing was such a nuisance that the philosopher sent a complaint to her. The owner was indignant upon hearing the appeal. "Why"said she , "they crow only four times a day , and how can Mr. Carlyle bo seriously annoyed at that ? " Upon hearing of her attitude upon the subject , Carlyle replied , "The lady forgets the pain I suffer in waiting for those four crows. " Ilniltcr Mean. "Did the old skinflint give you a re ward for returning his pocketbook ? " / asked the policeman of the little news boy who helps support his mother. "Naw , he tried ter make me pay fnr de advertisiu 'cause I didu' return de stuff 'fore I knowed who it b'longed ter. " Detroit Free Press. Enconrnsrcment. Frances Harry says he just wants to fall down and worship me all the time. Her Mamma Oh , well , don't mind that , dear. After you're married ho < won't let it interfere with his business. ' -Chicaco News. Physical Bndarance. It should be impressed upon all young persons that during life each member of the body , in the very net of living , produces poison to itself , notes a writer in Popular Science Monthly. When this poison accumulates faster than it can be eliminated , which always occurs unless the muscle has an interval of rest , then will come fatigue , which is only anoth er expression for toxic infection. If th muscle is given an interval of rest , that the cell can give off its waste prod uct to keep pace with the new produc tions , the muscle will then liberate en ergy for a long time. This latter condi tion is what we call endurance. The power and endurance of the hu man machine is limited according t our understanding * > f the above facts , and alee our recognition of its slownes in getting started. Like any other pen derons and intricate machine , the bed ; requires time to get in harmoniou working order. The brain , nerves , hear and skeletal muscles must be given some warning of the work they are ex < pected collectively to perform. Ignorance ranco of this fact has broken down many a young man whd aspired to honors on the cinder path. The necessity of getting all the parti of the body slowly in working order is well understood by trainers and jockeys on the race track , as is evidenced by th preliminary "warming up" they give their horses , although it is doubtful if the trainers could give any physiologic reason for this custom. His Wonderful Curio * . The author of "Idyls of Spain" speaks of a notary whom he met , whose naive simplicity surely could not be exceeded. "He asked for our autographs , and I inquired whether he was a collector of such trifles. " 'Yes , sir , ' he replied , 'I am , and among others I have a most precious collection of anonymous ones. ' "Beaming with delight , he produced a rare manuscript of the time of Fer dinand and Isabella , exquisitely writ ten , and with the initial letters beauti fully painted. " 'Senores. ' he cried with enthusi asm , 'look at this. Isn't it a beauty ? I'm always collecting such things. Then I have just purchased by letter the manuscript of the "Iliad , " written by Homer himself , his own handwriting. The pity of it is that the work is not written in Greek. ' "At this Miguel came to the rescue , for Luis and I were almosf hysterical with amusement. " 'I say , ' inquired Miguel , 'what doc ument would your worship like most to have in your possession ? ' " 'Why , ' answered the notary , 'the telegram from Christopher Columbus announcing the discovery of the new world. ' " Bannnas In Typhoid Fever. After a long experience with typhoid patients , Dr. Ussery of St. Louis main tains that the best food for them is the banana. He explains by stating that in this disease the lining membrane of the small intestines becomes intensely in flamed and engorged , eventually begin ning to slough away in spots , leaving well defined ulcers , at which places the intestinal walls become dangerously thin. thin.Now Now , a solid food , if taken into the stomach , is likely to produce perforation of the intestines , dire results naturally following , and , this being the case , solid foods or those containing a large amount of innutritions substances are to be avoided as dangerous. But the banana , though it may be classed as a solid food , containing as it does some 05 per cent nutrition , does not possess sufficient waste to irritate the sore spots. Nearly the whole amount taken into the stomach is absorbed , giv ing the patient more strength than can be obtained from other food. Ameri can Druggist. A Mountain of Sulphur. The "Soufriere , " or sulphurous mountain , is considered to be the great est natural curiosity of St. Lucia , and , in fact , of the West Indies. It is situ ated about h.alf an hour's ride from the town of Soufriere , to which it has given its name , and nearly two miles to the east of the Pitons , and is at the foot of two small hills , both of which are quite bare of vegetation on the sides facing the crater. It covers a space of about three acres and is crusted over with sulphur and alum. There are several caldrons in a perpetual state of ebullition. The water is quite black in the larger ones and boils up to the height of two or three feet , but in the smaller ones it is quite clear. Visitors never fail to boil some eggs in one of the smaller caldrons , obtain ing them from one of the creole guides , who keep a supply on hand on purpose. Personal Reflection. "Are you a resident of this ward ? " asked the challenger. "I reckon I am , sir , " replied Tuffold Knutt. "Where do you have your washing done ? " pursued the challenger , still un convinced. "Sir , " rejoined Tuffold Knutt witheringly - eringly , "I've been votiu off an on fur 29 year , an nobody ever axed me that question before. " Chicago Tribune. Not Very Amiable. "Excuse me ! " exclaimed the timor ous man , "but may I disturb you for a few minutes on a matter of considerable importance to myself and possibly of some concern to your" "No , sir ! " replied the disagreeable citizen. "Not unless you promise not to waste as much time talking business as yon do apologizing. " Washington Star. Had Lived a Slow Life. A negro called at a residence in Bev erly , Mass. , and asked for assistance and food , and told the lady who assisted him the remarkable fact that he was 75 years of ago and was born 80 years ago [ n Boston. Exchange. PUBLIC SCHOOL ITEMS. The McCook schools are now on the university "accredited list. " Miss Case of the Seventh grade was ill. Thursday , and Walter Clark substi tuted for her. Miss Leonard , principal of- the West ward school , visited the family in Lin coln over Saturday and Sunday. More radiation was provided for the city hall school , Saturday , to enable the children to keep warm in the more se vere weather. It is proposed soon to give an enter tainment for the purpose of raising funds with which to liquidate the balance due on the lantern. Slides representing scenes oflCuba and Porto Rico are expected soon to form the basis for a lantern entertainment. They will be especially pertinent and enter taining at this time. The board of education will in time enclose grounds about the South McCook school-house. Such a fence is needed since the construction of the fence by the railroad company. ADDITIONAL PERSONALS. MR.
