sold more of this particular remedy
than of all other makes for the pre-

have been informed by scores of per-

The sick are always fastidious, aud
their desire for food is easily dissi-
pated by au untidy tray or a supera-
bundance of good things. The great-
est care should be taken in preparing
food l'or au invalid. Delicately pre-
pared food, tastofully arranged upon
a waiter, with a spotless cover, and
two or three bright, fragrant blos-
soms to adorn it, will go tar toward
creating au appetite in the convales-
cent, and help the doctor to get the
patieut ou his feet again. Every
womanly woman knows by iustiuct
how to juld the little touches that
IHAke A Ifiy attractive, but instinct
will not leach a woman how to pre-
pare the dishes the doctor may order,
aud so we give several recipes that
may be relied upon for the prepara-
tiou of food lor the sick. In all cases
the physician's orders should be most
carefully followed, as death has some-
times resulted from the forbidden
dainty secretly administered by too
iudulgeut baud of the parent.
Iu cases of fever the food is almost
iuvarlably given iu fluid form. The
best fluid food is milk. Milk should
be fresh and pure; if at all stale it
should be boiled aud theu allowed to
cool, It may be tak^n plain or mixed
V/Uh equal parts of seltzer water aud
loed, The addition of a tablespoouful
01' «UH> W !er to a glass 6f tnlZ n,ake8
it more Li,ue water Is
made by placing a pl*°® 0'" quick lime
in a gallon of water. This is A^ed
strength, aud the water will take up
only a certain amount of lime.
In order to prevent milk from curd-
ling into a solid mass iu the stomach,
add a little flue biscuit powder to it.
Beef tea is stimulating, but it has
little nutritivs value. With the addi-
tion of a little rich cream it is a use-
ful food. To make beef tea cut a
pound of lean beef into small pieces;
put into a covered jar with a quart of
cold water aud a sprinkle of salt. Let
it warm gradually and simmer slowly
for two hours. Do uot let it boil. It
should be carefully strained. A help-
ful food for invalids is made by add-
ing two tablespoonsful of powdered
biscuit or bread crumbs to a pint ot
beef tea; boil five miuutes, stirring all
the time. Mutton veal aud chicken
broth are prepared in the same way.
The broth should be carefully strained
and all fat removed.
To prepare heel'juice: Cut o pound
of loan beef iuto small pieces, put it
into a bottle aud cork it; place tho
bo'i'ile iu a little cold water, and let ii
stand over the lire until it boils. This
juice is goiJH'liuK* found :iios!, helpful
when given i<'e cold to fever patient*.
White witie whey is sometimes pre-
ferred to milk when milk cannot bo
easily digested, To make it, add <i
wiue H'ia3s.ful of sherry wine to half
a pint of boiliug milk, strain care-
fully and sweeten with sifted sugar.
Calf's foot broth is a nutritious
drink. Take two feet; break up; put
into a pot with two quarts of water,
one carrot, a little mace aud salt. Boil
several hours until only one quart of
liquid is left. Strain, add a cup of
good wine aud a teaspoonful of corn
or oat meal
Many excellent food drinks may be
made by beating a fresh egg to a
froth, sweetening and adding milk,
aud a tablespoouful of brandy or n
glass ol ivlne.
Gruel, to be palataolc, must bo care-
fully made. For farina gruel, stir
two Lablespoonsfui of fariua iuto a
quart of water, let it boil until thick,
add salt, a pint of milk, and let it boil
fifteen minutes longer; sweeten to
taste; oat meal gruel is made by stir-
ring two tablespoonsful of oat meal
into a pint of boiling water until it Is
perfectly smooth. Season with salt,
let boil fifteen minutes and strain.
The addition of a little port wine and
sugar makes this gruel most palatable
If the physician approves its use.
A pleasant drink is maae by cut-
ting ou« pound of apples iuto quar-
ters and baking them; put them into a
jug with half a pound of brown sugar
aud pour one gallon of boiling water
over them; crush the apples iu the
water by stirring thoroughly; when
cold tit rain and bottle for use; keep in
cool place aud do not cork the bottles.
ToaH a piece of bread slowly until it
i.) dark browu. Pour a glassful of the
apple juice upon it. Let stand for
half au hour, strain and it will make
n most refreshing drink.

Better Living on tbe Farm
Teztl Farm and Stock Journal.
That any farmers at ail do not live
better tbau the average or even the
well-to-do people iu towns aud cities
is Uue *olely to a neglect of the oppor-
tunities which farm life gives to them.
In Texas much more attention if given
now to fruits and garden products
than was given them a few years ago,
with the result of having better and
healthier food a well as a reduction
in the cost of food supplies; hut the
improvement, in this respect, In coun
try life Is uot as gcueral as it should
be. The climate of about all the farm-
ing area of Texaa is such that some
kinds of fruit or vegetables can be had
fresh during almost the entire year.
This, of course, necessitates an atten-
tion aud labor withdrawn to some ex-
tent from the regular farm work, but
really the care of the gardeu, small
fruits and the orchard should be con-
sidered au important part of the reg-
ular work ou the farm. It is the
poorest sort of economy to neglect
these departments; and It i« seldom,
indeed, that uny emergency arises that
will justify the n«'glect of giving them
