The word "puto" does not adequately translate "souffles"' I have given the title as it stands because to many good nobeekeepers the very sound of atorHgn name conveys an Idea of mysterious and difficult processes through which one must go to achieve success. bere is nothing dark or deep about the manufacture of a souffle. On the contrary . It is one of the easiest, dishes to make, re-. quiring only care la-mlalng and. baking to be delicious. It also possesses the prime advantage of cheapness. With til) a further merit It Is endowed. In that ItauppUes an excellent way of uelng left- variety of materials. Always milk and eggs play a prominent part In its constitution, so that it Is especially valuable at thls-tlme of yeac when eggs, at least, are cheap and plenty. In addition to these two Ingredients there must be a olid element, ana this ! wli. ro tht'ltft- overs" find their opportunity. The -cupful or cold flsh from last night's dinner, or the part of the can of salmon or lob- quettes, the few slices of cold veal, or lamb, or fowl, or boiled Dam. or tongue, the remnants of the dish of green peas, or cauliflower; or asparagus, can each take part in the composition Of a souffle. wltti an 1 Is a souffle bread, or omelet bread, as some people prefer to call It, that Is a delectable lunch or supper dish.

L: HOW NUGGET GROW. A Caeaatot Shews Tfct Gold ZxJata la gIull rona. It la generally supposed that the nag-gets which are found la the river gravels of Klondike and other auriferous regions have been brought down by the rivers direct from the reefs In which the gold originally lay. Many practical miners and scientific men, however, have loug been of opinion that this cannot be the ease, for no masses of gold of so large a site were ever found In the reefs themselves. They believe, on the other hand, that the nuggets have grown where they are now found, just as a crystal of salt will grow in a strong brine; but with ao insoluble a substance as gold it was dtflJcult to understand how Ach growth could take slace. Experiments carried out in Australia have shown that decaying vegetable matter will cause the deposition of gold from solutions of gold salts, but these salts are not known to occur In reefs. The mystery is now solved- A Sla- vontc chemist named Zzlgmedy haB lust shown that gold Itself can exist In a soluble form. By acting on a slightly aitaune solution of a gold salt with formaldehyde and submitting the product to dialysis, he has succeeded lh obtaining gold In a colloidal conditions-In Which state It is soluble In water and may be precipitated by tbe addition of rarer It is probable that some of the gold in qoartr reefs exists In this condition, it .Js washed out' by the rain, carried away In solution bxthe rivers; and deposited la the river gravels wherever there Js anything containing salt to cause IU precipitation In the course of ages a large nugget may In 'this way-be formed. ...

An oyster is of age at four' years-that Is, he Is old enough to. vote, take care of a family and go to market Going to market is a disastrous undertaking, for a four-year-old oyster is particularly palatable. By this it must not be sup-, posed that after an oyster has passed the four-layer period, and has five, slx-or even- ten-wrinkles-on-lfi -shell,-he is a back number. Indeed, there are" records of oysters being eaten just after celebrating their thirrlef h birthday, and in most cases they form-.'1 u delicious m.'tii. Thirty Is nu nti-usiial age for an oys.ter to attain, because few are given an opportunity to live so long, tf left to enjoy life In his own. way. tt is quite probable that the oyster would become an octo-geDarlan or even a centenarian. An lpht' Toneao. fjjgal Whoever has looked Inside an elephant's mouth bas seen a strange sight. Elephants have no front teeth and they never eat flesh or any food that requires tearing teeth. Eight teeth are all they have; two above and below on each side, huge yellow molars as wide as a man's hand and about two inches thick. Over those hay or fodder Is shifted by tbe queerest, ugliest tongue Id the - whole animal kingdom, a tongue that is literally hung at both ends, having no power or movement except In the middle, where it shifts back and forlh from side to side, arching up against the roof of tbebig-mouth like an immense wrinkled pink serpent .. Wh"en the British forces were march- log on Pekln In 1800, after the. capture of the Taku forts, one of the rivers became so swollen with the heavy rains that tt was rendered iMoassable.
