The dis- turbances In Mexico have postponed * temporarily the attainment of the su- tpreme ambition held by Dr. Herman von Schrenk of St. Louis, which is to determine scientifically ithe approximate age of this nestor of the whole fregetable kingdom. Experts, judging by the gigantic bole of the ISanta Maria del Tule cypress, and by the slow growth of this species, have estimated the age •of the patriarch of all trees to be between 5,000 and 6,000 years. These figures are staggering to the Imaglna- ition. Taking the lowest computation, when t...

One Is Lincoln, th6 other Is Grant. With the excep- tion ot Napoleon and Shakespeare, few characters In history have been so exhaustively written about as the great emancipator, but In the American Walhalla a niche near to hia proclaims the fame of the warrior to whom ~ee surrendered. Rarely does it happen that a man who earns recognition as a total failure in life afterward achieves exalted success. This was exactly what happened, however, to Ulysses 8. Grant, who not only struggled through many years of grinding and almost hopeless poverty, but actually fell Into such disesteem on account of his Inability to "make good" at anything, that people generally were disp...

Chopping meat to make It tender permits quick and economical cook- ing. In broiling chopped meat' It Is well to remember that there Is no reason why It should not be cooked like the beat and most expensive ten- derloin. The broiler should be even more carefully greased than for a ■whole steak. This makes It possible to form the balls or cakes of chopped meat with very little pressure without running the risk of having them (railed to pieces by adhering to the wires of the broiler. They should be heated on both sides even more quickly than the steak, because the chopping has provided more ways of escape for the Juice, and their open- ings should be Bealed as soon as pos- sible. The Interior should be cooked to theu taste of the family, Just as the •teak is. Chopped raw meat of almost any Itlnd can be very quickly made...
