1 Broiling and Roasting.
If housewives Understood more fully th
processes of broiling, roasting and boiling,
there would be less complaint of tough,
tasteless meat. The principles underlying
all three methods Is Identical; the differ
ence lle In the medium employed. In all.
the' object to be attained is to first quickly
sear the exterior of the meat, thus coagu
lating the surface albumen, and effectually
sealing the Juice. The cooking then pro
ceeds mar felowl'y to a finish, the tlm;te-
quired hinging, a a matter of course, upon
the sise of the cut, In broil ng and In roast
In,' which . are ip reaUty th came, th
name depending upon the nature of the
piece of meat, .this hardening of th ex
terior Is accomplished by exposing the meat
to the direct action of the heat, which
must be Intense enough to sear the surface
at one. When It Is not, the Juices seep
out, leaving It tasteless and sacrificing it
nutritive qualities. In boiling meat, surface
coagulation la attained by Immersing the
meat in boiling water and keeping up the
temperature for a minute. One of the
preliminary rule of boiling, on which
should be indelibly impressed upon every
cook, la that water, cannot be heated to
the proper temperature for boiling (212 de
grees) In an open vessel nor in on with
an Indifferently fitting cover. Another
point, equal In Importance to the first. Is
that when water begins to boll, a quicker
fire than Is absolutely necessary ti keep
it boiling results merely In wasting the
water In the form of steam and so harden
the -exterior of th meat as to prevent the
heat penetrating to the interior. The
Marrow on Toast Oood Housekeeping
suggests: "Use the skin bone of beef,

and a half In stock or salted water. But
ter rounds of very hot toast, cut off th
string and stand a bona on each round

A.!L. Mohler, vie ' president nd ' gen

the last five weeks he has been attending
a conference between the railroad man-
agers of western railroads and. committees

well, fully recovered from his attack of
pneumonia which confined him to his hotel
for some tlm. . .
Th tendency of roads In the west from

Mr. Mohler. "There I no other course left
for them to pursue, .
"The chairman of th managers' com
mittee, I. O. Rawn of the Illinois Central,
gave out a Statement of the fact and has
said tha managers went even so far as to
offer concessions to th men who would
be oppressive to some of the roads.' Many
of the roads have been making advance
In the pay of the men for some time with

roads will be put In the hand of receivers,
which will undoubtedly, mean a panic.

Thinking of New Rat Law.
Railroads ar busy determining what they
will do In th matter of rate when th
new law goes Into effect. Th passage of
the t-cent bill by th Nebraska legislature
with , th emergency clause will make the
bill a law within thre daya after th
governor sign It. Th railroad claim
they cannot possibly fix their tariff so th
agent can sell th ticket in less than
thirty day, so th passenger' departments
and th legal department are busy trying
to solve the problem.
While th Nebraska law fixe th rate
within th state, it Is said that will hav
no ffsct on th Interstate buslnes un
less (he railroads so desire. For Instsnc.
tha rat to Denver 1 about 118, while on
a mileage basis under th 1-cent law h
rat will be reduced to 112. 75. The rail
road ..claim they do not hav to make
this reduction because of the cut In the
rata within the state of Nebraska. They
also say they would not be permitted to
make the change of Interstate ratea within
thirty day If thy so desired, because of
the Interstate law, which compels thirty
days' notice before a change of Interstate
rate 1 mads.
The report ram from Chicago through
the Associated Press that the railroad
would fight th measure In all state which
would pass a t-cent maximum passenger
rate bill. Local passenger men said they
had heard nothing of thl and wer making
preparation for th new law, ,

TRIBUTE FOR TRAIN SCHOOL

Train school, Omaha," of which Miss C.
B. Maso is .principal, Is held up in th
Morning Btar of Rockford, 111., of last
Sunday by Mr. James T. Joslln, who re
cently mad a visit to It, a a model In
many respect. Mrs. joslln I deeply im
pressed with the practical Work that 1
done In that Institution, wher the prin
cipal and teachers look further than their
own! rooms look Into the homes of tholr
pupils In their painstaking effort to train
and develop and uplift the yoUng en
trusted to their care, and keeping. Mr.
Joslln contributed this statement to the
I wa very strongly impressed when on
a recent visit In Omaha by the work be
ing don In one of the public schools.
It wa In the Train school, named for a
very public-spirited man of earlier day,
Oeorge Francis Train. This school Is built
In front of one of tha high bluffs which
are so characteristic in Omaha. The school
has outgrown its original quarters and the
fourth and fifth grades ar occupying
quarters in' a small building just at th
top of the high blurt, at the refer, and
overlooks the lowlands beyond the Mis
souri river and Council .Blurt In the dis
This school la superintended by Mis
Mason, principal, and a corn of teachers,
who have worked out a bit of constructive
work which 1 within the easy grasp of
sny of us and cannot help but old ma
terially in upbuilding character, a very
essential point Just at the present time.
Kuch room take up the study of a cer
' tain animal for One month, the different

! the teacher and pupils Ju an exercise' of
five minutes' duration saoh ' mornltia.
- Kach grade has formed Itself into an or
ganisation called "Band of Mercy." These
bands' are presided over by children act
ing as president and secretary, conduct
ing meir meetings in the most business-
; mVnth and 0 . n e1fun Vr. held at cer-
tain times each vear. A nroaram la ar.
ranged and participated in by the children
of all rooms. The programs of the rooms
vary only (on the days of the Open meet
ing) In -the subject of discussion, different
animals being taken up.
The president called the meeting to order.
the secretary read the minutes of the Dre-
ceauig meeting ana announced tne subject
for discussion. The songs given by each
room are appropriate to the exercises.
The only requirement to become mem
bers of these Bands pf Mercy is the will
ingness to sign th pledge, which Is th
same for all room and as la follows: "I
win try to b kind to all harmless living
creatures and try to protect them from all
cruel usage." This pledge Is repeated at
all the meetlnga,
A wa passed from room to rboni. listen
ing to It all and realised th meaning of It
all, one could not help but feel that a very
good work is being done.
These children are banded together In the
Interest of living creature who ar so
helpless about ua By belonging to th
Band of Mercy they become o Ulcers to re
port any' case of cruelty which they can
not remedy to th officer of the Humane
society of Omaha, and much good has been
accomplished in thla way. Much more 1
being accomplished In the homes of these
children, for, in being taught to be kind
to th dumb animals and oaring for them,
many have been taught to Improve condi
tions In the home by being klr.d to mother
and father, sister and brothera The love
of the child for the animala makes the
love for the parent stronger.
. Th child become th teacher In many
cases and the factor of Improvement In
these homes, where the tired mother be-
by her dally toll and tha
father comes horn from his day's work,
bringing nothing but absolute necessities
to them all. .
Miss Mason made th statement aa we
passed from one room to another that
when it was time for election of officer
several candidates were nominated and
that there was not allowed to be oh word
said against a candidate, but all th good
points of all- candidates brought out, and
that the vbent of feeling-prevailed.
The Interest- shown In this work was
manifested by the attendance at this open
meeting. In November of the officers of the
