DomesticUses of Beef [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899
DomesticUses of Beef By Caroline A . Huling . Soups . ALL soups have a general basis which is called stock . The French , who are noted for their economy , use all sorts of scraps , of meat and bone for soup stock , keeping a kettle expressly for this use termed a stock pot . Bones are rich in gelatinoids and thus are valuable for soupmaking . In the ordinary ; family much is thrown away and wasted that would be valuable in the stock pot . It is customary to buy the shin bone or leg for soup . A knuckle of veal adds substance to the stock , being very gelatinous . Crack the hones so as to allow the water to penetrate to the marrow . Use one quart of water to each pound of meat or bone . Put meat in kettle with cold water and heat gradually , skimming whatever scunrarises to the top as it comes to a boil . Let it simmer several hours until the meat is thoroughly cooked , then remove meat and bones and strain through a coarse towel laid in a colander , into ; a stone jar or earthen ve...

Boomerangs THE worst trouble . about learning to - throw , a-boomerang is that fora long time the weapon is as contrary as the proverbial pig going to market .

He will hold a boomerang an arm s length behind him nnd...
