was not expected to intrude upon his

to Congress as a democrat in tho 15th
District, which in the previous Congres

placed in nomination last fall by the
democrats, and elected by a plurality of
2,454 votes over tho Hon. C. C. .Tad-

witli tho Forty-Seventh Congress. This
great victory by a young man of only

The Meal Beefsteak,
t Any ono can cook n beefsteak in
his mind. As a matter of fact, it re
quires nn nrtist to do it, nnd this view
is slinred by n correspondent who
writes: "A member of mv family has
brought tho cooking of this nrticlo of
food to perfection. Tho first require
ment is not so much n tender nnd juicy
steak, but n glowing bod of coals, n
wire gridiron a doublo ono bo that
vou can turn tho steak without touch
ing it. Tho steak' should bo pounded
only In extreme cases, when it is too
thick. Attempt nothing elso when you
are cooking steak, and have everything
ready for the table, tho roasted pota
toes and vegetables all being in their
respective dishes in thooven, withdoors
left open a littlo way. Prom ten inin-
tucB upwards is needed to cook Bteak.
Tho timo must depend upon tho size,
and you can easily tell by tho color of
tho gravy, which runs from tho steak
when gently pressed with n knife, ns to
its condition, If tho master of tho
house likes it 'rare done,' when
there is a suspicious brown grnvv with
the red, it will bo safo to infer that it
is done enough for him. If tlio next
stage is tlio favorite one remove tlio
steak tho instant tho Bteak is of a light
brown. Removo it to a platter, pep
per and salt it to your taste, nut on
small lumps of butter and then for two
brief moments cover it with n hot plate,
the two moments being sufficient to
carry it to tho tible. Ono absolutely
essential factor in tlio preparation o'f
good beefsteak is that it must bo serv
ed at once. If you can impress it on
your cook that he is not to let tho
steak stand nnd steam whllo ho is do-
iug other things, you will bo likely to
receive your reward for so doing."
