Out of the Frying Pan
The charge that fried food is indi- j
gesrible and therefore harmful is true'
only when articles are improperly fried. \
■Rightly done frying is no more harm
ful than any other mode of cookery:;
Indeed it is more wholesome because
food that is full of flavor and crisp aud 1
rich pleases the eye and the palate, aud
this we all know is a big step toward
The trouble is that too many cooks
think thoy arc frying food when they
cook in a skillet with a tablespoon or
two of fat. This is not frying, but J
browning or sauteing. It is useful
when preparing vegetables for stews,
for the preliminary step toward a
fricasee, and other similar things, but
it is not true frying.
To fry means to immerse every part
of the food in deep fat that is hot
enough to cook from the moment the
food is put in. If the temperature is
right, the hot fat immediately forms
an impenetrable coat that browns with
the process of cooking, but through
which the hot fat cannot seep.
To fry you must provide yourself
with a wire basket and an iron kettle
in which the basket will fit and suffi
cient frying material to cover what
evpr you intend to cook.
Good country lard is hard to im
prove upon when it comes to selecting
a frying medium, but city dwellers find
that most of the lard proves to be a
compound or a mixture of various fats

New York, Oct. 15.—A verdict in

As the frying fat may be used agaiu
1 and again this method of cookery is not

the fat and return it to the frying ket

', For dough mixtures test the fat with

One of the bright spots of tbat ioug
hot summer was McWhirter. We had
graduated together in .Tune, and in
October he was to enter a hospital in
' BuCfalo as a resident. But he was as
Indigent as 1. and from June to Octo
j ber is four months.
"Four months." he said to me. "Even
at two meals a day. boy. that's some
thing over '.MO. And 1 can eat four
times a day without a struggle
| Wouldn't you think one of these over
worked-for the-good-of-hnmanity dubs
would take a vacation and give me a
chance to hold down his practice?"
Nothing of the sort developing, Mc-
Whirter went into a drug store and
managed to pull through the summer
with unimpaired cheerfulness, confid
ing to me that he secured his lunch
eons free at the soda counter.
McWhirter it was who got me m.v
berth on the Ella, it must have been
about the 'JOth of July, for the Ella
sailed on the 28th. I was strong enough
j to leave the hospital, but not yet pbysi
| cally able for any prolonged exertion.
McWhirter. who was short and stout
had been alternately flirting with the
nurse as she moved in and out prepar
ing my room for the night and sizing
me up through narrowed eyes.
"No." be said, evidently following a
private line of thought, "you don't be
| long behind a counter, I.eslie. I'm
j darned if I think you belong in the
medical profession, either. The British
army'd suit you."
"You know Kipling Idea —riding

j "The British artn.v with Kipling i

There being no answer to tills. Me-
Whirter contented himself with eying
'l'm thinking," 1 said, "of going to
1 Europe. The sea is calling me, Mac."
I "So was the grave a month ago, but
It didn't get yon. Don't be an ass.
: boy. How are you going to sea?"
"Before the mast." This apparently
' conveying no moaning to McWbirter.
I supplemented "as a common sailor."
j He was indignant at tirst. offering
I me his room and a part of his small

he became dubious, and. finally, so
