B«w This Homely but Healthful May Bo Ketidered Attractive. Spinach, styled the "stomach broom" by the French auci one of our most useful winter vegetables, receives attention from the Boston Cooking School Magazine as follows, with an illustration that shows how attractively this homely vegetable can be served: It is valuable not so much for its nutritive qualities, which aro very small, A TEMPTING MOLD OF SFIXACH. as for its cleansing properties. Every cook thinks she knows not only bow- to prepare spinach for cookicg, but also how 1:0 cook it. These thimgs are well doae but infrequently, Nine ont of ten "cooks" will cut away carefully the tender heart leaves with the roots and scrupulously save the tough, fibrous sterns of the outside leaves.' To retain the salts, the only food element spinach contains, it should be cooked in a very small quantity of water. Thac which clings to it in the washing •will be sufficient. If you serve plenty of other green vegetables and fresh meat, yon need not be so particular ahont retaining the salts in the spinach, sind may cook it in a-larger quantity of water. -In this case it will have a more delicate flavor. Have the water boiling, add a little salt, if you use salt freely/as that will intensify the grqeu color, and then the spinach. What is left over the first day may be pressed into molds or little cups and on the following day served as a salad, with slices of cold boiled tongue, hand cooked eggs or I,.-.race. For the mold of spinach boil the spinach in plenty of water, salted, until tender; drain, chop very fine and season with salt. For each pint of spinach, chopped, cook together two tablespoon- fnla ot butter and one of flour. Add the spinach and half a cnp of cream or milk and stir until ~well heated. Press the spittich into a basin or mold and turn out on to a hot platter. Surround it -with triangles of bread, toasted, and garnish the top with tbe white of a well, cooked egg, cut in -sections lengthwise^ and yolk of egg, sifted. Good Squash I'ie*. Eiight spoonfuls of squash, prepared by boiling or steaming, and if choice only mashed fine; if slaingy, it must be sifted. Eight spoonfuls of white sugar, 2 S]>oonfals of flour, 2 eggs, a little moris than a quart of milk—cream if yon have it—a little salt and cinnamon, or flavor with rosewater. Stir the sugar, salt and flour together, add the flavoring, beat the eggs and add nest the sqnssh and lastly the miiifc. The spoon used should be a large tablespoon well filled to heaping of the sifted squash. Apple*. This is a particularly pretty dish.

Mount V.wuviu* G»Te Him the Cue— H« Kxpeetii to Turn Out *IO,OOO E**ry W i;elr — Antimony, Hot Mud Certain Are liSpecial CoiTespondence.] CHICAGO. Jan. 4. — Manufacturing gold is riot altogether a poetic occnpa- tioji if Edward C. Brice's establishment in Chicago is any criterion. It is, like a glimpse of tbe infernal regions, thick •with smoke and redolent with classified odors 'and vapors. All tbe wcirlnnen are obliged to wear respirators, and tbe few privileged visitors are invariably overcome with the powerful gases. The interior is painfully prosaic until the great inventor throws open the furnace doors and reveals one of the most beautiful sights imaginable. Bow on row, tior on tier, :rise the crucibles fnll of the precious o;re, but the awful heat transforms these ugly jars into glowing EDWARD C. BKICK. vesselu that resemble exquisite Venetian vases :filled with liquid fire. When the crucibles are chilled, the crystallise structures resemble black, translucent scales in the form of cubes, and on the face of each is a grain of pure:gold, the whole mass sparkling like 10;000 dia- mondi!. Mr. Brice .is undoubtedly the most conspicuous man in the world-today if, as seems probable, he has solved one ol God's greatest secrets, the production of gold. His discovery was by no means an accident, but the direct result of nearly a quarter of a century's unwearying investigation. Eighteen years ago Mr. Brice camped for a couple of months on Mount Vesuvius in the hut of a government guide, and the two men almost daily climbed to the crater, which required about ten hours for the round trip. Mr. Brice never patronized the Vesuvian steeds, as his purpose was better served by walking. It was his ambition to mEikd a thorough study of transmitted heat, and as a result of his investigation there- he is the greatest authority in the world on the subject. At a. Crater's Mouth. By bribing the guide he went nearer to the mouth of the volcano when it was in action than any other man who has lived to tell the story and has dropped the pyrometer into the molten mass and found it registering 3,000 to 4,000 degrees. He has watched the terrible havoc of these tremendous waves of heat; saw them rend the mighty rocks and turn them from cold gray stones to dazzling reda;of: every tint. • v He was tbe first scientist to discover that there was nothing in the crater to bnru;. that it was only a vent for that wonderful furnace in the heart of the earth. Later he went to Egypt, where, through the American minister, he was presented to' the khedive, who introduced him to the scientists of the country, and they taught him secrets that have been guarded and treasured most jeal 9usly for thousands of years. , Mr. Brice built 14 esperimental^ur naces before constructing the present plant at Lowe avenue and Thirty-ninth street, Chicago. He made his first gold Feb. 20, 1SS9, in the form of a tiny bead, and during the last eight years he has bent his energies toward producing gold economicsdly, as in the former ex- periinents^mnch of Uie yellow stuff went up the chimney. However, he is now satisfied that he has reached the highest form of the art in furnace building, as he has constructed four furnaces that axe under the most perfect control and yet registering the'extraordinary heat of 6,000 aad 7 r OOO degrees. Last summer he purchased a disused molding establishment and'lias converted tbe old ruin into a neat but unpretentious red building. The offices and parting room, are in front, and back of them is the mechanical department. It is an immense building, in which -the big furnaces are the conspicuous features. They sure all alike, with the exception that the removable body of the third is provided with a water jacket, and chat the fourth, or cupelling, furnace is provided with a ledge, upon which are placed the crucibles of powder gold obtained by the parting of the gold and silver found in a mixed button in the bottom of each of the cupels, so ihat die remeltang of this powder gold is carried on simultaneously with the heating of a batch of loaded cupels. The f urnaojs are in two stacks, each stack containing two furnaces, and in each stack tho fireboxes are at the outer ends, the two furnaces being next to the fireboxes and the flue for each stack de- aoending beneath the ground from between the two furnaces proper.? Each furnace has an arched ceilings, from : vrhich the heat is focused upon the floor o£ the furnace, the floors being removable by having an oval opening in the place •where (che permanent floor would arwiaB be.

ROGERS, Medical Superintendent. 1886. npon which the test bottoms are shoved from the track -which is used for placing and removing them. The Process Explained. The first process is to convert antimony into the oxid«i of antimony which is produced by destructive distillation. A quantity of the -ore is powdered in the crushing machine and placed on the removable bottom of the right hand furnace. The antimony is brought from the company's beds iu Utah at a cost oi $15 per too. "When; th'e antimony is attacked by the heat, it melts and then boils away in fumes into the flues which, under the combined draft created by a blower situated iu the operating room and by an exhaust fan in the pips system, are carried down the inclined flue -which emerges from the stack to which this antimony distilling fnraace belongs, and then passes into the main or underground flue and finally into the system, of cooling pipes in the yard .and into the bags which form the termination of the metallic pipe system. There is 600 feet of open air piping, broken into sections by elbows, the purpose being to cool the fumes to prevent the igniting of the woolly canvas bags. The baghoTise^is about 30 feet high and is filled with bags 20 feet long and 2 feet in diameter which are suspended mouth downward and emptying into receptacles which receive the grayish powder that has been shaken from the inside of tbe bags and which is really the solidified antimony fumes. This oxide of antimony, together •with other ingredients unknown to any but the inventor, are mixed in the compounding room into a paste. The mixer is like that used for concrete, being a trough 7 feet long and 2 feet wide in which a paddled shaft is kept constantly revolving by means of machinery. This paste is then put into crucibles and packed away in Mr. Brice's great volcano, where they are subjected to the most intense heat for 48 hours. The ore is then crushed and placed in tha removable bottom of one of the furnaces and a quantity of scrap lead thrown on the top of it. The heat causei? the lead to ruelt and sink to the disk- like surface of the removable bottom. It finally vaporizes, and, passing up through tbe ore, forms a corrosive lith- arge which corrodes and eats up into a "matte" everything contained iu the powdered oro with the exception of tha gold and silver values,'which are drawn off -with the molten lead into molds about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide. This lead bullion is put into the third furnace, where the treatment is similar to th& preceding one, which is for the purpose of getting rid of the "matte." Xbe Weekly Output. The final process is carried on in the fourth furnace, where 30 bone ash cu- pels, each loaded with a J2 inch block, are placed. These cupels have the property of absorbing every substance which may be melted in them, with the exception of gold and silver, the latter being left iu the bottom, of tbe cupels in'the form of button or hemispherical blocks of the mixed metals. The cupel- ling process requires about 1,200 degrees and occupies about three-quarters of an hour, the bnttons weighing about three ounces each and containing four parts of gold and oc« of silver. When the cupels are taken from the furnace, the bnttons are carried into the parting room and put into a porcelain vessel and treated like the ordinary gold ; ore. When the elaborate cupelling process ia completed, there are separate ingots or bars of pur* gold and silver. The furnace fires were lit at 10 o'clock a. m. Monday, Nov. 22, and tie first week's output was $1,828.19> •which v>as a wonderful return consid ering the difficulties of the initial run. Mr. Brice expects to turn ont $10,000 every week and not work his furnaces to their full capacity. Notwithstanding the incredulity of the world, Mr. Brice's gold manufacturing plant is an established fact. And the brainy inventor in no more elated than tbe farmer who reaps what ha has sown. Indeed it •would be difficult, to imagine a more 'unassuming man than Edward C. Brice, whose discovery is likely to revolutionize the world's monetary system. His fine face shows the traces of anxiety and hard work, but lie still wears the same old hat, as there has been no necessity for a larger size. The personal safety of Mr. Brice has been and is a matter of anxiety to his friends, as they have feared that a crank may take bis litit, hoping to check the manufacture of gold. He scoffed at their fears, but has fmaily consented to canry a shining toy that he has not forgotten to use since he aimed, -it ia his country's defense. And on the deck in the office may be sefea a collection of pistol* and. rifles that reminds the visitor of a small arsenal.
