Laws Out of Date.
In an address to the State Medical
association Dr. J. B. Greene, former
ly superintendent of the Lincoln
asylum, but now of Illinois, said the
Nebraska laws for the administra

the most antequated in the country
Washington. Beginning the day
with a fair prospect of an agreement
between the regular republicans and
the democrats which would permit an
early vote upon the railroad bill the
senate concluded Thursday's session
in as great uncertainty as it has been
at any time on that and all other
The day was full of consultations
and from the hour of meeting at noon
the situation shifted many times.
When adjournment was taken shortly
after 4 o'clock there was more talk
of an understanding between the
"regular" republicans and the "insur
gents" republicans than between the
regulars and the democrats.
The first reports of the day indicat
ed the strong probability that a large
majority of the democrats, if not all
of them, would agree to accept a
proposition of the republicans to
strike out the last three sections or
the bill relating to the capitalization
of railroads.
This arrangement was to have car
ried with it the adoption of an amend
ment presented by Senator Cummins
to prohibit the lowering of railroad
rates to destroy water competition
and give a place of advantage to the
New Mexico and Arizona statehood
bill. In return the democrats were
expected to expedite the railroad bill
by voting against most of the amend
ments offered by the "insurgents"
and assist in laying some of them on
the tabic.
When this proposition was put in
writing and Senator Johnson of Ala
bama began to circulate it on the
minority side of the chamber he met
with much opposition 'and before he
had proceeded far bis associates be
came convinced his party was by no
means unanimous in favor of the
proposed compact.
Among those who refused to si en
were Senators Bacon. Rayner. Fra
zier. Overman and Smith (S. C.)
They raised the objection that the
agreement would be construed as a
surrender to the "Aldrich republic
ans." With such a large defection
the movers for an agreement prac
tically decided before the close of the
day to refrain from further effort in
that direction.
The failure to put through this
formal plan did not have, the effect of
causing a complete discontinuance of
the efforts to bring the bill to an ear
ly vote. Senator Aldrich, who was
the prime mover In this direction,
was busy throughout the day. Just
before the senate adjourned he ex
pressed the opinion that some ar
rangement would be made soon which
would insure the passage of the bill
at an early date. Senator Hale in
an open talk in the senate said that
a vote should be reached by the end
of next week.
Most Effective Way of Dealing, for In
stance With the Flank End
of Porterhouse.
Before speaking of the cooking of
the cuts that lack tenderness through
out. It may be well to reVer to the fact
that the flank end of tfe porterhouse
Is to be classed with tfce toughest of
cuts and with those which, when
cooked alone, are with difficulty made
tender even by long heating. Mock
duck, which Is commonly made out of
flank steak, can be rendered tender
enough to be palatable only by long
steaming or cooking in water, and yet
people quite generally broil this nart
of the steak with the tenderloin and
expect It to be eaten. The fact Is that
to broil this part of the porterhouse
steak is not good management. It Is
much more profitable to put It into
the soup kettle or to make it Into a
stew. In families where most of the
members are away during the day the
latter is a good plan, for the end of
the steak makes a. good stew for two
or three people. This may be sea
soned with vegetables left from din
ner, or two or three olives cut up in
gravy will give a very good flavor; or
a few drops of some one of the bottled
meat sauces. If the flavor Is relished,
or a little Chill sauce may be added ta
the stew. But if the tough end of a
porterhouse Is needed with the rest, a
good plan is to put it through a meat
grinder, make it into balls, and broil it
with the tender portions. Each mem
bet of the family can then be served
with a piece of the tenderloin and a
meat ball. If the chopped meat is
seasoned with a little onion juice,
grated lemon rind, or chopped parsley,
a good flavor is imparted to the gravy.

Selection of Poultry.
In choosing poultry select those
that are soft. Perhaps the surest way
to determine whether they are young
is to try the skin under the leg or
wing. If It Is easily broken It is
young: or turn the wing backwards,
and if the joint yields readily It Is
lender. When poultry Is young the
skin is thin and tender, the legs
smooth, the feet moist and limber, and
the eyes full and bright. The body
should be thick and the breast fat. Old
turkeys have long hairs and the flesh
Is purplish where it shows under the
skin on the legs and back. About
March they deteriorate In quality.
Young ducks and geese are plump
with light scmitransparent fat. soft
breast bones, tender flesh, leg joints

finger. They are best in fall and
