THE SOURING OF SALAD. How to Prepare It So Tlila Will Xot Soon Occur ? Hints for tUc Siovice. A novice in cooking would consider the "souring of salad" a misnomer, but it is a thing easily accomplished, even when the salad is as fresh and sound as it is jsossible to have it. The foolish old Sjin uish philosopher whose much vaunt? ed directions for a perfect salad are ?tili held up in a familiar proverb would tertuinly have soured his salad. "A spendthrift in vinegar" would spoil any jialad, as certainly as would "a miser it: nil." There need be no miserly use of oil if the oil is sound and sweet. The liest French dressing for a salad calls lor three times as much oil as vinegar. The secret of success in salad lies in carefully measuring and as carefully mixing tlie salad; the dressing should j be a perfect cream and cling to the green leaves, never sinking to the bot? tom of the bowl, as it does if the leaves tire not. properly drained, or if there is too much vinegar, or if the vin...

For years the oak has been the char? acteristic tree of the lake shore sec? tion, but the knell of its doom seems to have been rung. It is probable that be? fore long Oak Park must take on a new name if the villagers wish to have all things consistent. Civilization is the enemy of the gnarled oalc, as it is the enemy of the squirrels that ate acorns in its brandies. On the South side, in Chicago, within view of the cars from the elevated rail? road, there are square blocks on which no buildings have been erected and which look desolate, for within the last two years the oak trees around them have withered and died.
