She reoadfoxr dourier, A . RA¢RDY CEaaE TIuss. PUBLISHED' EVERY,'FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JANUARY I, x89g. The -'Paslug lear. Br the time this issue sees the light the old year will have passed away ; and 1892,like the fresh clean pages of a new book will lie open before us. The death of the year has always been a favorite source of inspiration for the poets. Fancy delights to portray in the rosette hues of sunset the en chanted scenes which distance raises around the subjects of memory. And so much of sentiment envelops this transition period that one may find it perhaps a little hard to realize that the boundary line is practically but an imaginary one. We are so easily elated, and look upon every new coming event in the vain hope that it will bring us good luck and level the uphill road of lite a bit, forgetting that time is all of the same tissue and that our only hope lies within ourselves, and is a matter, not of surroundings, but of character. Nevertheless there is nothing to lose and...

First, the baking powder and flour are sifted together twice; then the butter and sugar are stirred to a cream in another dish, and the egg yolks and flavoring are added; the next addition is the milk and water; after this the well-beaten whites are put in, and the mixture is beaten to a light foam and added to the flour. This makes six good layers, and if well baked will be so soft, foe and light that it can scarcely be moved to be put together. The cup need for measur ing is asmall teacup. The simplest way of adding the bananas is merely to slice them very thin, and pl...
