(Continued from yesterday.)
The fat used for frying meats or cro
quettes, sweets and delicate articles,
should be clear and fresh; when it be
gins to look dark, from frequent heat
ings, you can clear it by frying pota
toes in it. After it has been used sev
eral times and is no longer suitable for
fine frying it should be strained and
used for fish frying or for articles sea-I
soned with onion, as these two articles
leave their penetrating and disagree- !
able odor in both utensil and fat.
To fry properly you must have your!
croquettes, fish balls, oysters and the
like, well coated with crumbs. It savesj
time to make these ready before hand'
by drying every bit of bread you have,
left in the bread box, or drawer, in the!
oven and„ then rolling and sifting!
them. They should be very fine when
finished and may be kept in a glass jarj
or a canister.
To egg and crumb articles nicely
break one egg into a shallow dish. T
use an old-fashioned soup plate ,for
this because its wide edge allows one I
to drain the croquettes or patties on I
it. To each egg add one tablespoon of I
water and a pinch of salt. Have also a!
plate of the tine crumbs.
Pip the article to be fried into the!
crumbs first, and lay it, aside until all j
are crumbed, then dip into the egg, and j
finish this dipping, too. before starting J
to put on the second coating of crumbs.)
This allows the coating to adhere to the!
food and it is less liable to break or!
drop off in the process of frying than
if you egg and bread each article rap
idly. Some fine cooks use flour first

then egg ami then the crumbs as the
flour has a more sticky consistency but
this is not necessary.
Fritter batter for dipping fruits, ami
some other foods, is made with 1 Vj cups
flour, teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons
of baking powder, t egg and enough
milk to make the batter rather thicker
than for batter cakes.
This same batter is used for making
rosettes or pastry shells or timbale cases
but the baking powder is omitted. The
timbale iron or rosette iron should be
heated in the fat and then dipped into
the batter and again immersed in the
fat. The batter for these cases is the

iron it should be much thinner than
The frying basket should always be
used for cooking potatoes and fish
balls as these can scarcely be lifted out
of the fat with a slotted spoon or fork
When fried articles are left after a
meal they may be kept over a day. in
a cool place, and then restored to their
original erispness by heating in an
oven for a few moments.
Persons who are fond of croquettes
and other fried articles but dare not
indulge in them will find that a crisp
coating may be given foods by oven
cookery. Roll articles in cracker
crumbs in the place of the egg and
breading process and then brush them
over with melted butter or olive oil.
Use a pastry brush for this and see
that every part is brushed. Place on a
pan in a very hot oven and in five
minutes or less they will be beautifully

aautical rite of signing artteles. Arm ;
eu with the note McW'hirter had 1
cured for me and with what I fondly j
hoped was the rolling gait of the sea- j
faring man. I approached the mptaln I
a bearded and florid individual. I had /
dressed the n-irf old trousers a cap
and a sweater from which I had re
moved my college letter. .McW'hirter,
who had supervised my preparations 1
and who accompanied me to the wharf, j
had suggested that I omit my morn
ing sba.e. The result was. as I look
back, a lean and cadaverous six fool
youth, with the hospital pallor still oti
bim. his chin covered with a day's
beard, bis hair cropped short and a can j
nlbalistic gleam in his eyes. I remembei
that my wrists, thin and bony, annoy
ed me and that the girl I had seen
through Ae opera glasses came on
hoard and stood off. detached and in
different. but with her eyes on me,
while the captain read my letter.
When he finished be held it out to
"I've got my crew." he said curtly. :
"There isn't—l suppose there's uo
chance of your neediug another hand?"j
"No. You can leave your name and ad
dress with the mate over there. If
anything turns up he'll let you know."!
My address: The hospital?
1 folded the useless letter and thrust
it into my pocket. The captaiu had j
gone forward, and the girl with the
cool eyes was leauiug against the rail
"You are the man Mr. McWhirter has 1
been looking after, areu't you?"
"Yes." 1 pulled off ray cap. and. rec
ollecting myself—"yes. miss "
"You have been ill. haven't you?"
"Could you polish brass and things
"I could try. My arms are strong
enough. It is only when f walk"—
But she did not let me finish. She
left the rail abruptly and disappeared
down the companionwav into the after
bouse. I waited uncertainly.
When the girl returned she came to
me and stood for a moment looking me
over with cool, appraising eyes. I had
been right about her appearance, she 1
was charming—or uo. hardly charming
She was too aloof for that. But she i
was beautiful, an Irish type, with blue'
gray eyes and almost black hair. The
tilt of her head was haughty. I.ater I
came to know that her hauteur was In

I glanced toward the hospital, where
my few worldly possessions, including
my dress clothes, my amputating set
and such of uiy books as 1 had not
been able to sell, were awaiting dispo
sition. "Very near, miss." I said.
"Better bring them at once. We are
sailing in the morning."
She gave a curt little nod of dismiss
al. and I went down the gangplank
and along the wbarfL I had secured
what I went for. and my summer was
provided for. 1 was exultant. but with
my exultation was mixed a curious an-
ger at McWhirter. that he had advisee
me not to shave that morning.
My preparation took little time. Such
of my wardrobe as was worth saving
McWhirter took charge of. I sold the
remainder of my books, and in a sail
or's outfitting shop I purchased Itoots
and slickers—the sailors' oilskins. With
volver. second band, and cartridges
I was glad later that I had bought the
revolver, and that I bad taken with
me the surgical Instruments, antiquat
ed as they were, which, in their ma
hogany case, had accompanied my
grandfather through the civil war, and
had done, as he was wont to chuckle,
as much damage as a three pounder.
McW'hirter came to the wharf with me
and looked the Ella over with eyes of
"Pretty snappy looking boat" he
said. "If the nigger gets sick give him i
some of my seasick remedy. And take :
care of yourself, boy." He shook
hands, his open face flushed with emo- j
tlon. "Darned shame to see you going;
like this. Don't eat too much, and!
don't fall in love with any of the worn
en. Good by."
He started away, and I turned to- "
ward the ship, but a moment later I 1
heard him calling me. He came back. \
rather breathless. t

ed. "they say Turner is a devil. What- t
ever happens, it's not your mix-In. Bet

mattress and forget you've got it. ,

The Ella sailed the following day at c
10 o'clock. She carried nlneteeen peo f
pie. of whom live were the Turners and
their guests. The cabin was full of
flowers and steamer baskets.
Thirty-one days later she came into' r

Eight or two. everything was going
smoothly, at least on the surface.
Smoothly, as far as the crew was
eoueerued. I was not so sure about
the after house.
As 1 have said, owing to the small
size of the vessel and the fact that
considerable of the space had been
used for baths, there were, besides the
family, only two guests, a Mrs. .lohns.
a divorcee, and a Mr. Vail. Mrs. Tur
ner and Miss l.ee shared the services
of u maid. Karen Hansen, who. with
a stewardess. Henrietta Sloane. occu
pied a double cabin. Vail bad a small
room, as had Turner, with a bath be
tween which they used in common.
Mrs. Turner's room was a large one.
with its own bath, into which Elsa
Lee's room also opened. Mrs. Johns
had a room and bath. Koughl.v and
not drawn to scale, the living quarters
of the family were arranged like the
diagram iu a later chapter.
I have said that things were not go- 1
ing smoothly in the after house. I felt
it rather than saw it. The women rose !
late —except Miss Lee, who was fre
quently about when 1 washed the deck.
They chatted and laughed together,
read, played bridge when the men were
so inclined, and now and then, when
their attention was drawn to it. looked
at the sea.
The men were violently opposed
types—Turner, tall, heavy shouldered,
morose b.v habit, with a prominent
nose and rapidly thinning hair, and 1
with strong, pale blue eyes, congested
from hard drinking; Vail, shorter by
three inches, dark, good looking, with
that dusky flush under the skin which j
shows good red blood, and as temper
ate as Turner was dissipated.
