Ttnt'i Steward,
How to Tell flood Meat Something;
About Corned Beef and
How to Prepare and
Cook It.
There Is a restaurant noted among shop
per nnil business womni for Its delicious
cooking and Its low prices. When ex
plaining to a reporter the other day how
she managed to get up nice dishes at llttlo
expense the atewnrd nave away many se
cret of value to housekeeper who wish to
make the moat of their materials.
"To begin with we never huy the most
expensive of 1 never nuV th
tenderloin of beef. It Is the tenderest. the
most tasteless and the most expensive part
of the animal.
"Neither a tenderloin nor a sirloin steak
Is as Juicy or as nutritious as a round
Steak, a chuck steak, or those little tender
teaks which a (rood butcher cuts from the
flang. A slice of sirloin steak of the proper
thickness will weigh from two and a half
to four pounds.
The trimming away of the fat and bone
considerably reduces this weight, so that
what meat remains Is very expensive. Now
the round steak Is oil meat, without bone
or superfluous fat, and consequently
economical so far as waste Is concerned, as
well a lower In price.
"In buying beef a housekeeper should
know that backward from the head the
price of good beef Increases and that tt
decreases downward toward the legs In
both quarters. The neck pieces, those that
come Immediately behind the ears, make
delicious stews when properly cooked and
"In the upper portion of the foTe quarter
are the chuck rtba, which make excellent
roasts and steaks. The chuck steak I con
sider as good as the sirloin and It sells at
about two-thirds the price.
"The upper half of the shoulder Is high
priced and I seldom buy either the roasts
of the stew pieces that are cut from It.
The lower half Includes the brisket pieces,
cross ribs and plate pieces. These cuts all
come within my means, Resides cutting
mall steaks from the cross rib piece, we
use It for beef a la mode and pot roasting.
The other parts I use for stows and also
when buying corned beef I select those
Concerning Better Cats.
"If a person must have sirloin and at the
same time wishes to be economical, then I
would advise her to get that cut from the
hip below the loin. It contains only a small
knuckle bone and sells for much less than
the prime ribs. It Is juicy, well flavored
and fairly tender, making good steaks,
roasts and pot roasts.
"Tho chuck parts, while usually from
one-half to one-third cheaper than the
prime ribs, are equal to them In succu
lence and flavor, and some portions are
equal to them In all respects, besides hav
Ing mors meat In proportion to the bone.
'Bom of the best butchers prefer the beat
part of the chuck of a good animal to tho
finest sirloin or tenderloin. From poor or
Inferior animals tha chuck steaks are not
"For a large family roast I wotild recom
mend tho first cut of the loin. It Is called
the round bone sirloin and contains little
tenderloin, but is excellent and economical.
The butcher should take the bone out and
tie up tha roast handsomely. By no means
hould the bone be left with the butcher.
"For a small family roast, weighing from
five to ten pounds, I would suggest the
small end of the loin. It has the same ad
vantages that I hare described In the first
cut and should be treated In tho same
"Many persona have a decided preference
(or a brisket roast. I have been told by
my head waitress that most of the cus
tomers who asked for It are southerners.
They want the brisket Itself, that juicy
fat that gives the name to the out.
"For corning I usually select the pieces
I want cured and the butcher does it for
me. In picking out pieces to be corned I am
careful to see that the fat Is mixed all
through the lean. For my purpose I prefer
tha plate, navel, brisket, rumps and edge-
"While much depends on tha quality of
your corned beef, I believe more depends
on the cooking. The majority of people
seem to think that anybody can cook the
New England boiled dinner. There never
waa a greater mistake. The materials are
Inexpensive, but will not be good unless
carefully cooked.
"While It Is harder to lodge the quality
of salted meats than fresh, one may soon
learn to know a good piece of corned beef.
While much paler than the fresh. It has a
natural color. It should not be slimy nor
have a disagreeable odor. If well selected
freah beef is corned In fresh brine neither
tha brine nor the beef will taste or smell
Jadala Meat.
"In Judging meat always remember that
any lean animal is Inferior. Good beef
should have a fair proportion of fat about
the kidneys and overlying the loin and
ribs. The lean or muscular portions should
be ingrained or marbled with little streaks
or dots of fat
"If the animal Is in good health, rested
and cooled when slaughtered, the suet fat
will be firm, white, dry and crumbly. If
this fat should be yellow, oily, or fibrous
the beef Is inferior, and I would never ad
vise buying it. however low the price.
"Of course beef may be too fat. The
marbled appearance is the best teat, and
one will soon learn to' know the desirable
amount of fat.
"Oood beef should have a dark red color
when first cut, changing to brighter red or
cherry after a few moments' exposure to
the air. A bluish, or. dull, dark red color
Indicates poor beef. It should look Juicy,
be smooth grained and velvety to the
touch and somewhat Arm snd elastic. The
bones and sinews should be comparatively
mall. '
"Steaks should never be allowed to lie
any length of time after being cut and
never placed on Ice. The meat should be
ripened before cutting and then promptly

of horror It our customers were told that

"A beefs heart Is an economical dish
when properly cooked. In selecting them
those with much clear, lively fat around
the top are the best. Calves' hearts are
smaller, more tender, but not as Juicy
They should be stuffed and roasted or
'For breakfast both tripe and liver are
economical. Calf's liver Is as a rule more
tender than that of an older animal, though
carefully selected and prepared beef liver
Is very good eating. When buying care
should be taken to see that the color Is
yellowlflh red, clear and bright.
'In selecting tripe choose that which Is
thick, white and fat. The honeycomb part
Is the best.

PHILADELPHIA. April it. Mrs. Clarissa
F. Dye, aged 7B years, of this city, presi
dent of the Association of Army Nurses of
the Civil War, who did herolo work at
Gettysburg and on other battlefields during
the rebellion, is collecting data from the
NO and more surviving female nurses In
the United State who saw service on the
field of battle and In hospitals during the
war with a view of furnishing congress
with facts looking to the securing of
pensions from the government for these
volunteer nurses.
"Many of these women today," said Mrs.
Dye, "are poor and destitute widows and
too old to work. They were volunteer
nurses and left their comfortable homes
during the time of the civil war to nurse
the sick and dying soldiers. Their work
was one of love and sympathy and they
received no compensation from the govern

for, receiving a pension of S12 monthly. I
plead for the poor, aged women who nursed
back to life many a sick and wounded
hero of the battlefield.

provision for them and I believe It will

Incorporation Are Kot In
Proper Form.
NEW YORK, April 22,-The application
of Beta Tokakl and others of this city for
a certificate of incorporation of the Na
tional Roosevelt league was denied tori ay
by Justice Blschoff In the supreme court.
The principal object of the proposed or
ganization was "to aid In securing by all
parties and citizens of all parties, Irrespec
tive of political affiliations, the nomination
of Theodore Roosevelt to succeed himself
as president of the L'nlted 8tates."
The petition declares that present political
parties and a large number of public men,
notwithstanding their public professions,
are entirely too much attached to govern
ing the people for a party and by a party,
or of a class for a class and by a class.
It was to this latter portion of the pe
tition that Justice Blschoff took exception.
He took the ground that while these al
legations may lie proper subject fur de
hate they are not proper when placed In
formal articles of Incorporation. He there,
fore refused to affix hla signature to the
document until the Improper matter shall
have been eliminated.
