Preparing and Cooking" a Turkey . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898
Preparing and Cooking a Turkey . FOR the benefit of young housewives who have never learned to properly dress a turkey , we give the following explicit directions by Jane E . Clemmens in Good Housekeeping . She says : Do not feed the poultry for twenty-four hours before killing ; catch them without frightening , tie their feet together , hang upon a horizontal pole , tie the wings together over the back with a strip of cloth ; let them hang a few minutes , then cut the throat with a sharp , knife , and allow them to hang until the blood has ceased to drip ; The thorough bleeding renders the meat white and more wholesome . Scald well , being careful not to scald enough to set the feathers , thereby making them more difficult to pick . Place the turkey on a board or table with head toward you , and pull the feathers away from you ; if they are pulled in a contrary direction from their natural bent the skin is likely to be torn . With a knife or pair . of tweezers , pull out the pin fe...

Jane is our cook , and she gets cross when we take her things , but . she makes lovely men for us out of cooky dough when she bakes , so we dont mind if she does scold .

Miss Matties Thanksgiving Dinner By Emily Huntington Miller . T T WAS growing dark when Miss Mattie , 1 with her basket on her arm , came into the corner market , to buy her Thanksgiving dinner . The basket was absurdly small , but Miss Mattie was little herself , and when she set it on the high counter and stood blinking in the bright light the calf s head at her elbow seemed to be grinning at them both . Well , Miss Mattie , called ou the marketman , in his hearty fashion , I see your mind is not set on » a turkey this time , but just wait till I start this basket off for Cap n Lawson s and Ill show you the rightthing—a plump little duck . 1- clapped into the safe this morning , thinking to myself that s the very moral of a treat for Miss Mattie . Miss Mattie looked embarrassed and rubbed her forefinger uneasily over a small coin that lay in the palm of her hand under her glove . It was a silver 5-cent piece , and she had taken it with much hesitation from a little store of pieces...

—Some classes of fruit , such as the banana , raisin , fig , date , and apple , have food ele-ments-in such combination and amount that they are abundantly able to sustain life . No substances are so well prepared to enter directly into the nourishment , of the body when taken from the hand of nature as are fruits . They require less cooking , and when selected and gathered at the proper season , they are freer from disease than all other food ele--ments . Nearly every individual would find it an advantage to make a larger proportion of his dietary of fruit . —Dr . A . J .

THE elm trees stood etched against the still gold of a September sunset , but little pools of shadow were already settling in the hollows of the road and meadows when John Danforth set out on bis way to Rachel Whitney s . As lie rode along he met one and another , who greeted him and to whom he returned greeting , but he heard neither his own words nor those that were said to him , for his heart was full of Rachel , and the sweetness of her voice sounded in his ears . He pictured her as he had seen her , moving about the room through light . and shadow or sitting at her . wheel with the strong red glow of the fire upon her , looking up rarely with some shy answer to his remarks . But this evening was not to be as other evenings . The young fellow s pulse quickened and his heart beat more quickly as he thought of the one between . Tonight Rachel would be waiting—perchance she was expecting him now—and after tonight He haste...
