Bay-Leaves and Ginger
Some me has asked if the leaf from
the swamp hay tree is identical with
that used for seasoning and she sends
me a black velvety leaf for a sample.
It does not seem to even belong to the
same family and has none of the spicy
taste or odor that gives charactoi to
the bay leaf of the kitchen spice box.
•This leaf is from a tree that grows in
the East Indies; it is used not only for
seasoning, but for perfumes, and it is
this same leaf that is distilled and used
for making bay rum. If you do not
like the flavor of bay in tomatoes and
in spice mixtures, it is doubtless be
cause you add it with too heavy a
hand. I'se but a little. One leaf broken
ill half is enough to put into a quart
of food to be flavored and it should be
taken out jfter a few minutes as it is
so strong that it will cover all the other
flavors if left in.
Ginger is another spice that is either
much liked or ignored by every day
rooks. It is a valuable root crop
though its value differs from that of
roots that are used only for food.
Its aromatic quality and spicy fla
vor stimulates the flow of gastric
juices and pleases the palate. The plaut
it is taken from is very likely a palm
and grows freely in moist places
throughout the tropics. The root is
gathered when the stalk withers and is
scalded at once or washed and scraped
to prevent its sprouting. The Chinese

sprouts and they also use them for
many of their soups.
The old roots are strong in flavor
and produce dark or black ginger, the
white or light ginger is from the young

"1 know what I'm doing. Beat it, I

He watched her as she glided away
through the rear doorway, and he
knew she had reached the kitchen
stall's. I'lieii he fastened his gaze on
tbe sergeant while his pistol waved
slowly from side to side, although he
addressed everybody in general as he
said distinctly:
"You people will find everything

down the stairs. It was rather dark

lighted library, and they lauded at

the sergeant underneath.
As he extricated himself, in a frenzy
of wrath, he bellowed, "Blow your

For about half a minute the library
was empty. The noise of the police

' that which often precedes a Berce out

1 Suddenly Jack Doogan tiptoed Into
the room from the front hallway. His
pistol was still in his hnud. and as he

"Straight down the street, while we
