CONSPIRACY CASE POSTPONED

WASHINGTON, April 27.-After argu
ment today the Hyde-Benson-Dlmond-Sny.
der land conspiracy case, which waa to
have followed the Herman trial before
Justice Stafford, waa postponed until the
fall term of the court. The trial will be
gin October 21.
In announcing his decision to postpone
the case. Justice Stafford . referred to the
fact that the government had brought
sixty witnesses to Washington from Cali
fornia and Oregon. He said he regarded
It as a great hardship on Jury, counsel
and court to have to begin now a case
which would without doubt run through
the hot months of the summer, and be
lieved this hardship would over balance the
added expense to the government which
the postponements would Involve. This
disposition of the Hyde-Beneon-DlmOnd-Schnelder

MUTTON AND VEAL TO M
Experiesced Etsward Talis What Hon
keepers Can Avoid.
HOW SELECT AND HANDLE FRESH fISH
The tse ef Salt Pork and llama In
Cookie; Fresh Vegetables
Issietklss Abont took.
The steward of a very popular but In
expensive little restaurant offers the fol
lowing advice regarding the purchase of
"Mutton, the other red meat that Is In
season the year round. Is not o economical
a beef. While it usually cost less than
beef It must be fat to be good, and, the
fnt unlike that of beef, cannot be used
In cooking on account of Its strong- flavor,
o in the end it Is much more costly.
"The best mutton is that from small
boned, short logged, plump animals. The
fat 1 abundant, white, clear and solid.
The scored skin of the forequarters is
nearly red, the lean Juicy and firm and of
a dark red color, with the leg bone clear
and white. Lean mutton is generally In
ferior, so Is that In which the fat Is yellow,
with flabby, bluish and stringy meat.
"While the leg commands the highest
price, I believe It la also the most economi
cal, aa it haa the most meat. The fore
quarter are usually a half or a third less
and make delicious roasts, though they
have little meat. Good rib chop may be
cut from a well selected breast, which Is
the cheapest cut of the animal.
"In lamb select that which has hard,
white fat on the back and about the kidneys
and reddish colored bones. Let the buyer
beware of more than one oolor In the fnt
of the hindquarters. Fat of older animals
Is sometime Introduced by the wily
butcher to make his young animals appear
in the proper condition.
"In veal there are four grades. Of these
milk calves Is the best and most whole
some. The meat should be white and firm,
with considerable white fat about the
"In selecting; pork the skin should be
thin and pearly white, the fat white and
the lean of a delicate red. Juicy, firm and
finely grained. If the skin I thick the
pig ts old. If clammy the pork Is stale. If
the fat Is yellow and soft the pork Is not
what It should be.
"But whatever cut one buy, however.
It Is to be cooked. It must be thoroughly
done. Rare pork Is not only unwholesome
but positively dangerous.
"With cured ham the case Is different.
To begin with I never allow an uncooked
ham to be cut. Fried lor broiled ham If
served in this restaurant la always first
boiled. It Is not only more economical,
but It Is more wholesome, and as for taste,
well broiled ham Is one of the most popular
dishes of the house.
"When a ham Is boiled before It cut
every morsel of it can be used, I also in
clude the liquor In which it la boiled and
"For broiled ham there ! no comparison
between the ham that has been boiled,
then cut Into dainty thin dice and
broiled, and the ham that is cut raw. The
same la the case with the fried ham. If
housekeeper would try boiling a ham be
fore broiling or frying I am sure they
would never go back to the nld way.
"All the little bit and shreds of ham left
after slicing are used for omelets and a
dosen or more popular dishes. The fat,
when there 1 too much, la placed In the
cold room and Is used In etsws to season
many meat and vegetable. It Is always
an Improvement tfl poultry, and when fried
with liver gives It a rellth that nothing
"There Is one little point I am careful
about In cooking ham. When it Is taken
from Its boiling liquid I have It plunged at
onoe into Ice water. This makes the fat
white and firm and brightens the red of
the lean. It is a great Improvement.
"I always have the bacon and the salt
pork parboiled before cutting. Of that
also every particle Is used. Tou will smile,
perhaps, when I- tell you that I look upon
the skin taken from breakfast bacon, be
fore it Is cut into strips, as very valuable.
"One of the uses to which we put It 1
cooking sausages. There are very few peo
ple who don't prefer pork sausages. The
pure pork sausages are very hard to get
and never inexpensive. Well, I get the
good, pure beef article and oook them with
bacon rind and it ia surprising how many
people think they are eating the highest
priced pork sausage In the market.
"To accomplish this deceit perfectly the
sausages should, of course, first be cut
apart and washed. Then lay them In a pan
and pour over them boiling water.
"After allowing them to remain for three
or four minutes turn the water off and
prick the sausage with a fork to keep
them from bursting while being cooked.
Put them In a pan with the bacon rind cut
Into strip and fry for twenty minute
Turn them often.
"Then have cut Into fanciful shapes ome
stale bread to put In the fat that 1 left
In the pan, and after it becomes a delicate
brown garnish the dish with It. Brown
bread for thla purpose ts especially do
llclous. "The bones, sktn and liquor In which the
ham is boiled I use to make soup stock,
mixing it, of course, with stock made from
beef. Properly cooked it keeps well and
when fused Judiciously make a tasty ad
dition to all vegetable soups.
"Negro cooks are the ones who know
how to use salt pork and bacon. One rea
son a negro cook's vegetable are so nice
and tasty ia that they use salt pork for
Economy In Flak.
"My pet economy with fish I never to
throw away the heads. Every fish head
that comes to that kitchen Is a carefully
cleaned and handled a the fish Itself. The
tlsh heads are put Into a pot of cold water
and bollad for half an hour. Then the
liquor la strained Into fresh Jars and set
away to be used in fish chowder. Usually
the chowder la made entirely from left
over, fish, white potatoes and atrip of fat
"In selecting fish choose only those which
are Ann and stiff, with lively red gills,
eye full and clear and fins firm. The
sooner Ash la cooked after being taken
from the water the better it will ' taste.
Fish should never be allowed to remain in
water after they are dresesd."

place In the feminine wardrobe now that
It Is Interesting to know something about
Little Is known of lace prior to the year
1400, Its invention being claimed by both
Italy and Belgium. Pillow lace Is supposed
to have evolved form netting and net work
is spoken of In the bible. However, there
is no proof that lace waa known in the
orient. While laces have been made for a
great number of years still for a long time
they weu confined to the use of the church
laces have changed In variety to such an
extent from one period to another that
writers have classified them Into periods,
so that an expert can tell at a glance,
where to place each style. So the first
style la termed Medieval, to 1550, during
which time .the designs were made upon
curious figures, beasts scrolls and trees
either taken singly or In groups. The
geometrical style Is second between the
year 1550 to 1830. During thla period the
designs are made up of geometrical figures
as squares, diamonds, circles or wheels.
Third, renaissance from 1630 to 1720. At this
time the designs, became more artistic,
flowers were arranged In festoons and gar
lands and combined with scrolls work.
Fourth, the rocco, was from 1720 to 1770.
This period was distinguished by stiff up
right bouquete set close together. Fifth, the
dotted style was, from 1770 to 1810.

The numerous divorces In our own high

It is wholly a difference of method. We

Our more brazen fashion would be pref

encouraged tendencies In the smaller cities

a year, and she says she will continue in
tt until she dies. She Is aa enthusiastic
about it aa a young chorus girl who has
made a hit aa a prima donna. But what
mokes her all the more remarkable Is that
she Is In the business alone, and does all
her "work" alone.
From girlhood Mr. Oroley was brought
op In the undertaking business. A she ex
plains It, she didn't have to learn It, It Just
grew on her. Her father was C. Kose

west side. She used to accompany him on
hla call and when only 14 year of age
prepared a body for burial and took charge
of all the arrangement.
"I Intend ta make the undertaking busi
ness my life work," said Mr. Croley the
other day., "Of course. I am In the busi
ness to m&ke money, but I am also in It
to do good. I believe I oan do a great deal
of good In bereaved families. There 1 no

Nebraska railroads expect about May 1
to meet each other's short-line rates be

islature decided to pass a 2-cent maximum
passenger rate bill the railroad abolished
the practice of meeting each other's short
