When meats are boiled in water, a consider*
able portion of the nutriment is dissolved oat,
and owing to the fact that water cannot be
heated above 212° except under pressure, it is
often difficult to heat the meat enough by
boiling to disorganize its fiber* and make it
tender. If it be necessary to soak out salt,
put meats to be boiled into cold water, and be
gradually heated. But when it is desired lo
retain the juices, the water should be made
boiling hot before the meat is put in, so as to
close the pore*, or coagulate the albumen up-
ou the surface, at once. To obtain the best
broth, loi the meat be put into oold or luke
warm water, and be kept a long time below
the boiling point. A belter plan sjill, is to
out the meat very fine, pul it into a bottle,
cork it tight, and tbeu place the bottle in a
kettle of water, and boil it thus for a consid
When meats are broiled on a gridiron over
hot coals, the sudden high heat applied, sears
the outside, which shuts in the juices, and the
rapid application of meat soon cooks the meat
through, if in moderately thin pieces. It is
thsn tender, juicy, and palatable. Those who
never broil their fresh meat, or fish, or poultry,
do not know the excellences of a properly
cooked dish of animal food. Of all methods
of cooking fresh meats, whether fish, flesh, or
fowl, broiling is the best—provided always
that (he cook is active and intelligent enough
to handle the gridiron and meat dexterously,
so as not to make charcoal of an atom, and
yet quickly cook every part of the meat suffi
ciently to suit the taste of the consumer.
Roasting meat, in an oven, is next to broil
ing, and generally preferable in the hands of
a careless, or slow, or inexperienced cook.—
But a piece of meat to be roasted well, should
be put into an oven already hot, so as to sear
the surface in order to retain the juices. The
heat should afterwards be kept as high as pos
sible without actually charring or burning the
meat. The higher the heat, and the more rap
id tbs cooking, the tenderer will be the meat.
A loDg slow roasting, is next door to “ tan
Frying in a pan or spider is the worst mode
of cooking meats, except for tasteless fish, or
meats whioh are so much like chip* a* to re
quire soaking in fat to render them at all pal
atable. Swine eating Gentile* do well to fry
their pork, to “try out” a considerable pro
portion of the lard—though we have never
been able to appreciate the good taste or di
gestibility of the fat soaked <( scraps” left af
ter frying a piece of pork in the usual process.
The Rabbit In the Moon—An Oriental
The lliodoostanes believe that they can see
a rabbit in the moon. The Chinese, when
they represent the moon, paint in its centre a
rabbit pounding rice. This singular belief re
calls a curious and touching legend which in
early times passed from India to China. There
is near Benares a forest, in the middle of which
is a religious monument, called the Three
Quadrupeds. The following story explains to
us the cause of its consecration : Three ani
mals, a fox, a monkey and rabbit, lived on most
friendly terms together in that forest. One
day the master of the gods, under the garb of
a poor old man, appeared before them and
thus addressed them : “ My children, do you
love this calm, retired place ? Do you never
feel afraid ?” “ The thick grass is our car
pet,” they answered ; “we walk through the
shady forest, and though we are of different
