ABOUT THEHEART. I APijetisi?g'Breairlist Dishes. HIAn .,TtAsT.-Chop the meat very fine, heat it on a buttered spider with enough I soup stock or water to make a paste; add a little lemon juice the last thing, spread it I evenly on slices of buttered toast. Cold 1 tongue is delicious prepared in the same way. Any preparation of cold meats which are chopped can be made still more palatable by poutting them into a pudding dish and cover- I ing the top an inch deep with the following: l?eat the white of an egg into nicely mashed and seasoned potatoes ; spread evenly and moisten the top with white of egg, browning it nicely. Eggs in nearly all the ways in which they are cooked make excellent break fast dishes, and spring is the season when they are most relished.

ENGINEERS' SUPERSTITIONS. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company will be compelled to abandon engine No. 1313, now in use on the road. It is regarded by the road men as unluchky. There is not an engineer or fireman on the road that has not a superstitious dread of the huge monster that during the past year has figured in more disasters than any other.

About a month afterward it collided with a train near Manor, seriously injuring the fireman, and wrecking a number of care.
