All water birds should be eaten ss fresh
as possible, because their flesh being oily,
soon develops a peculiarly rank flavor. Also
old game will keep from one to three daya
longer than young game; therefore. If
both kinds be oa band at the same time,
cook. the young game first. And old game,
ot course, needs longer cooking; it will
also bear the addition of "extras" much
better than will young game, which re
tains Its milder flavor best when cooked
In the cass of wild ducks and geese,
warm water and a mild soap should be
used, as wiping them with a damp cloth
will not cleanse them thoroughly. Some
times svsn this U not sufficient, because
the strong flavor comes from the oil In the
skin, and frequently It Is necessary to re
move this covering altogether. As the flesh
Is dry, brush the ducks or geese lightly with
a I melted butter, and then dredge with flour
before roasting. This will form a crust
wbtcb will serve to confine what moisture
there Is in the bird. When resorting to this
process a quick oven will ba necessary, at

If It Is suspected, that a bird is old and

All sorts of fowl is plentiful now and, not
withstanding the demand for the cornfed
Nebraska product, -the local ' market will
not suffer. There are turkeys, chickens,
ducks and geese galore and the wholesale
district resounds with a cheerful chorus
of gobbles and cackles and squawks ema
nating from the crates that are piled high
on the curb and even In the street. , There
will be plenty of everything for Thanksgtv

American beauties being especially fine.
Narcissus and several varieties of lilies
are also In.
In these days of simplified living; and
light housekeeping It Is still possible for
people with limited cooking facilities to
serve the regulation Thanksgiving dinner

apartments. The delicatessen and the bak

scores of people will enjoy sumptuous din

Everything ir. the' way of salads, roast
