10 BOSTON. Kndlcnl Club—Tho April Medina ...Henry James, Essayist. Free-Lovo Called Froo HeU”*"Woni' an Eulogized. John Wct<m Makes Fun of Everything--* CoutrmHcllons—A Lively Ffffhl*** Aficr-Commcni. From Our Oien Corrtti>on<lent. Boston. April 20.—The April meeting of the Radical Club, just past, is without doubt the groat meeting of tho season. Wo can’t well have anything livelier or likely to make eo deep a sensation unless wo should get .Mr. Hanry Ward Beecher and .Mrs. Tilton to pit against sack other at tho remaining meeting of tills season. The essay was by Mr. Henry James, Sr.; its theme, Marrlaae. Tho opening had no ipparent bearing upon tho title, for Sir. James commenced by a vehement protest against the ■creeds of Christendom, thanking Heaven that bo was outside of them all, and didn't partake of any of “the average Jioiwe-c.ir smteftfv/'* After a while, in this reviewing of the faulty creeds, which brought to bear upon tho faulty laws, UR. JA4IZ9 SUDDENLY -TUMPED UPON HIS LITTLE THEME, nod proposed to ehow that marriage was not the blessed InstilutiSu it ought to be, because the Jaws and creeds wore uot the blessed things they ought to be. In Homan Catholic countries, or in any old countries whore tradition was strongly Impressed, which hold the sanctity of tho marriage ceremony as a sacrament instead of the spirit, the state of things was worse than with us. But Mr. James thought it was bail enough with us. Ho defined his position In the proprieties at this point by declaring that “FREC-LOVE WAS FIHX HELL." Of course, wo all of us breathed (root after thin. Wo ban boon bo startled by previous on wla.iphta mam About everything under the sun, that ire bad begun to be confused and a little Irlgblouod. and, when this round declaration lolled out, wo began to feel as if we were onco more In the* safe and narrow path. After this, Ibe distinction between loro and marriage sounded icse dangerous. Marriage was one thing—lovo was another thing, according to Mr. James’ statement. Lovo mu n personal and Individual matter. Marriage was u universal and general matter, which was to make the race and all social life. Marriage was ihorcfom greater than lovo, for nianiago fur* ziishcs homes, uu anchorage for the social senti ment, the beginning of {he series of homes by which muii goes on. through the municipality, tbo commune, and llio nation, to feel his way up to tbo unity between himself and God. Mr. Joines couicsscd that man. loft to his awn destruction, his own selfish instincts, would follow tucso individual impulses or emotions.— that is, follow lovo and leave marriage,—but that women would always bafllo him hero. Woman had the instinct which represents the publioaud fcocial element; him is Tor universal good; she hates pnvicy and secrecy. Man represents the personal nucl private, the individual element, — that is, 1 suppose, according to Mr. James, the aollish clement. TUU DANGEROUS ELEMENT which is breaking out now under the title of Frco-Lovo tho essayist considered not of suf liceut importance to he afraid of, hut as a sort of sign of the times,—as a reaction against tho old traditionary spirit of laws. Mr. James thought it’wcil to tako warning hy this outbreak, which ho did uot think, evidently, confined to tho crowd of frco-lorcrs, but to a great class of people, and thought if it wero takeu at flood tide and mot by wiso legislation wo should all bo ou the high road to happiness. His belief—uo. his conviction, Mr. James goes beyond beliefs—is that people should not ho forced to live together who aro miserable in this relation, but that legislation and public sentiment mould co-operate to make marriage a marriage of tho spirit. And that this marriage culy should ho held the true marriage. Thus divutccs should bo granted more easily and more acceptably; wo should get enlightened enough to see that this was the only method, and, after separating from the wrong one, we should ho allowed to marry the right one. The are-monk of marriage was made A SYMBOL OF UNION AND SANCTITY BY CUEIST at the miiocle of Cano. Jesus gave this con tract Uiu personal sanction, and elevated it from lU<> place that it occupied iu tbo Hebrew polity, to tho higher ground where it is placed hy Christianity. With this consideration of wemou, of coarse Mr. James behoves that man, iu withholding the suffrage from woman, is not only uujunt to her, hut to himself, since bode pnvea tho race of its powonul influence for gcuxi, and throws it hack upon his own imper fect uud narrow legislatiou, and loaves woman no: Ling hut housekeeping. “ Forieh," he cried. *• our misetablo houses over our imbecile heads boloro wo allow tins to continue." Ha finally wound up with a most eulogistic perora tion on woman. Mr. Sargent at this close invited those present to speak, ami himself said a few words of comment. Dr. Laitol was tho lirst to comply witu tbe host's invitation. Ho made two exceedingly good points. One was a criticism ot Mr, James eu logy upon women which left man out in tbe cold to decidedly, ana put him down as Plio Doctor thougut that womanly attributes wire not always coniluod to ths sox.—that (hero Ken quite as many men as women who had iou.e of the divine attributes that Mr. James attributed only to acz. Tho other point was that be thought that tho happiness or perfection of the person In all directions led to his completeness, and through that complele iu'l-h to a greater power of unity and perfection of the whole. But it remained for John Weiss to give the d&eh of spiut to the discussion. Knowing, is wo nil did, that Mr. Weies had himself written am) delivered an essay upon the very subject which Mr. James had treated bo contradictorily, wo were all on the qai-mu to hear what his opinions were upon Una present treat men u Ho fought shy for a few minutes, and thou, upon Mrs. Sargent's saying, •• X believe Mr. Weiss has himself written au caaav on mar riage." he returned in bis wickedest way, " Oh, 1 don't i©collect a word of that. I’M Like OUVEII WENDELL IIOUIEH, who can't remember his own poems." Then, bftur being again urged to speak, ho demurely begun by saying tout ho must own himself sur prised to tlud that 3lr. James, or Hut anybody, should be using that old miracle stprv of tho marriage ut Caoa as a matter of aigmtlcaut moaning, lie was surprised tuat Mr. James admitted its reali ty; lui hadn't believed it himself for forty or tifiy years. He didn't know they printed it in tho Bibles now; ho was sure it wasn't in his copy. Mr. James flashed up aud retorted that he wouMn't have used the illustration hud be boon u into how fur his hearers had carried tho pro «.vsh of eviscerating their Bibles! But ho thought hu tunde it plain that he used it as a symbol of unity, which unity hud never been presented beioia Christ. Mr. Woiss softly returned, IS A TONE OP nout.NO MMCniEf, that lio-did not think Jesus bad demonstrated anything Buddha and Socrates had not demon strated hefoiu him. Mr. James replied that ho was au abject Chris tian. and gloried in it, and that miracles were the fuu'ication of science. Mr. Weiss, picking up the s'.raada, then proceeded m his wickedest, wittieji way to actually poke fun aud derision at the whole structure aud argument of the fotay. aud most of tho people wore glad to hear it. I, for one. waa glad to hear it. For certainly when a man attempts to speak before an audience let him make him self at least intelligible, aud not mix his rheto ric, his impulses, his antagonisms, his personal ities, and his imagination, into suen a snarl that no Intelligent person can follow him. .Mr. Weiss opened on him by saving that in the course of the essay Uo was reminded of the ckhbropa that in the time of Cromwell were flung down io tho road to lame the on flow horses. Whichever point tho horse trod upon, the other point was sure to fly up ana prick him. So all through tho essay, whenever hs thought he had got upon sure foundation another point would strike up and prick him. Its had admired aud been quite carried away with the splendid English of the essayist, aud at ths end ha was so taken off his feet by TUB SENTIMENTAL ECLOOT that hs hadn't much wit left to think of any thing else. Mr. James cought him up on tho word senti mentalism. He wasn't sentimental, he was limply uting facts and symbols, hut it was of no use to try to stay John Weiss when tho spirit of mischief and wit had posses sion of him. Evidently he scorned Mr. James 1 whole treatment, if not his whole thought upon the matter, aud the way he dared to snow tbie £oorn hi hit bold fun was something to hear, a&d which no wjrds can convoy. One of bln roost scathing remarks was that lio didn't often see, ecen tc/im he lookctl in the glats, a man who could talk over Ibo subject, especially in (bo presence of women. Another sly scathe wan.—and oh, the silky sarcasm of tho tone.—•• I thought love was alovo everything, but I see you make it iVjm than marriage, aud you ee/ntrale it from marriage !" “No, I don't separate it from marriage. *’ whereupon Air. James endeavored to explain his own contradictions, which I suppose trans lated into the vernacular, means that lovo Is one thing and marriage -•'other,—that Is, that love la au emotion ami u.-.jingo an institution which may bo brought into partnership. Mr. Weiss dually brought down the house by lifting Ins tnumb and linger and DUULARINO THAT tilt DIDN'T CARP. A SNAP FOR Till: lIEUINMNd OP TUK ESSAY, and whether ho umlorsloml it or not. so long as tho end sent him into such delightful regions, floating round in ou*cumambiout air. And hero the meeting adjourned, and little groups formed rapidly to say tho word they didn't dare to say In public. •* Ido not wish to be understood as not appreciating Mr. James' lino English, or of making light of his convic tions ; but I do wish to say that I don't want convictions hurled down my throat in such confusion (hat 1 can’t even protest,'' was tho comment of 000 of tho parties at these side confabs. “ Mr. James evidently behoves everything and nothing." was another comment. “Mr. James evidently believes what ho teanle to believe." was the last shot I board tired. And so ondotb tho discussion of the April meeting. May breaks us up for summer wander ings until October. But I doubt if Mrs. Sargent can give us such another lively time. N. I’. LINCOLN. Weather* Crop** anil (loads —Now Ikotcl—Demand for (litildinffs* Special Corretoondenee t\f The V/neaan mount. Lincoln, 111., April 20.— For the past few weeks tho weather has been very pleasant and encouraging fur the farmers, who have, as a general thing, been able to commence breaking up for corn. Considerable oats are being sown, and about the usual amount of spring wheat. Tho winter-wheat uover looked bettor. The pastures are beginning to look encouraging,— the grass growing finely. Apple, cherry, and pear (roes are in full bloom, and promise a good yield, notwithstanding the report circulated hero some time ago, to tho effect that all such fruit had been killed by our very severe weather in the latter part of March. W% will not have any poaches in this section. The prospect for small fruits is very good. But very little of last year's corn-crop has been delivered, owing to the impassable condi tion of tbo roads all winter.' Aud uow, as farm ots are busy, there is no prospect for auy com ing lu till after corn-planting. Work ts again resumed ou the Feeble-Minded Institute. The engine-room and sm:ko*Btack are to be completed as soon as possible, in order to got steam-power for pumping and hoisting. Tho largo h’otel erected by John D. Gillatt is nearly ready for occupancy, aud will bo equal lu elegance to any hotel in tho central part of the Htatc. The building is tivo stories abovo tho basement. Tho first floor consists of seven store-rooms, throe of which are already occu pied. QlllnU'e Hall baa been thoroughly overhauled and painted; the etage, dressing-rooms, and en trance enlarged, and flto-cacapes constructed. Wo are to have au opera-house aud another hotel erected this season,—both to be good sized. and with ail modern improvements. Now dwelling-houses arc going up in every portion of (be city, and still it is nearly impossible to rent a house,—applications being in before the lota are fenced. There is no bettor chance in tho State for a capitalist to invest than to erect houses to reut in this city at tho present time. Fifty could be filled in twenty-four hours. Thonsand-dollar property rents at from £l2 to sls per month very readily ; better property lu proportion. THE SPENCER FAMILY. To th» Editor of Tht Chicago Tribune Chicago, April 23.—' The statement published in your Monday’s paper in reference to the vio lent death of Ambrose Spencer contains two or throe errors, which it may ho well to correct. Ho was the eldest son of the Bon. John C. Spen cer. Secretary of War during President Tyler's Administration, not of the Navy, as stated, nfc brother Philip, who was hung with Small and Cromwell (or mutiny on board the United States brig Somers, by order of Commander McKenzie, was the youngest of tbe three brothers, John C. Spencer. Jr., being next older. This execu tion did not take place on the “coast of Africa," but within twelve hours’ sail of the Island of Ht. Thomas. The hanging of those men (Spen cer was a more youth not then out of his toons) was considered a cowardly act on the part of tbe Commander, and was tbo reason of his resigna tion. his official character having been seriously damaged .by this unnecessary uacritlce of life. Bo bad tbo three in irons and conliucd, while the unsuspected of the crow were fully armed and prepared to put down any further attempt at mutiny. It was believed at tho time that the whole thing was hatched up In a spirit of mischief, on tho part of Spencer and the others, not seriously contemplating violence. Vouug John C. Spencer, Jr., was a midshipman in tho navy, and died of African fever soon af ter this tragedy on tho coast of Africa, while his vessel was at sea. This circumstance has firobahly occasioned tho error in regard to the ocatlou of tho hanging. John C. was a young man of flue promise, nod bis death was a great loss to his family. Bo stood well in tbo navy and enjoyed an excellent character. Both Ambrose sod Philip were boys of way ward habits, and gave their parents much anxie ty io early life. That two of the three sons of so eminent and distinguished a man as tbo late Hon. John C. Spencer—grandsons also' of the late Chief-Justice Ambrose Spencer of New York-should meet their deaths by violence, is ead indeed, and should serve as a warning to the sons of wealthy and honorable men not to sell their birthright. Fortunately, both parents have passed away long since, and ara thus saved this last sorrow. But tho two sisters are stilt living, exemplary Christian ladies, who will have the sympathy of all who know them. Tho oldest is the wife of Judge George W. Clinton, son of DoWiti Clinton, of Buffalo; and the youngest tho widow of Mr. lloury Morris, formerly an estimable lawyer of Now York City. Both gentlemen studied law with their father in Can andaigua, K. Y.. whore tbo family lived, and were noth married at the same time in St. John's Church in that delightful town. The writer hereof was present. As there are other old friends of tbo family now residing in this city, tho above statement may interest them. 0. B. 8. UNDER THE SNOW. Through the dark window-pane I watch the dreary ■uowDakca falling swift aud white, And think—God help ms, darling .'—bow they drift and deepen on your grave to-night, Falt'rlug o'er daisies and furget-mo-nots, dead wreaths that mark my sacred wo, Widening tho space between me, weary, watching here, and you, there l)lug lew.

An Englishman in Hyde Park* Josquiu Miller says in his new hook : "Tho most mournful sight to mo is that of an En glishman driving in Hydo Park for pteasuro. Ha sits as if he were bolstered up in bod, and his physician was feeling his pulse. He is so stiff that you might imagine him chiseled from somo tori of very ugly stone, bat and all. Vou had almost as well expect to sea a grenadier guards man lift his bearskin can as to see an English man's hat move from hia head, unless a royal personage appeals, while he takes this mournful round in the great rids of the Kingdom. Tho marble head of Julius Ciu«ar is about os likely to fall from the shuuldoisof the bust in the British Museum, as is the head of au Englishman to turn to the right or to the left as he sits there, holding hut hands so stiffly, looking so stern, so Eitlful, as If be wts expecting every moment to ear tha( melancholy phyiicUa lay lhal he most die to-morrow." THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: SATURDAY, APRIL. 29, 1876-TWELVE PAGES. HOUSEKEEPING. On Bread-Making. To the Miter of The Chicago Vrfotim, Oak Park. 111.. April 20.—Like many other readers of your valuable Journal, I have taken a lively interest In tho “ Housekeeping Depart* inont." which seems to exert a mailtcd ioduonce in the production of homo comforts, and capo* dally in tho articles of “W. 8. 8." In his very able and interesting communication of tho 22d nil., ho gives much valuable information rola* tivo to tho chemical composition of tho various Hours now in use. and 1 fully agree with tho writer in rejecting “ bran " as a wholesome Mr licle of food. By “ bran M 1 moau, # of course, the true bran, or outer husk, which is used only because a valuable and indispensable substance happens to remain attached to It in tho ordinary process of manufacture. This bran, so far from being wholesome, is positively the reverse; being very harsh and siliceous In its nature, it is entirely indigestible, and therefore worse than useless for nutrition. Tho “ Graham " and •* Attrition " flours do indeed possess tho advantage of retaining tho valuable phospbatic and nitrogenous portions of tho wheat, but they also contain the useless and disagreeable ele ment of silox. But, If 1 understand the objective point of the communication referred to, it is not " What is the best flour?" but, “How can we beet obtain, In a proper fbrro for assimilation, all tho nutritive properties of tbs wheat ? " Tak ing this for granted. 1 bog the favor of your columns for a few remarks in this particular direction. ll la now undoubtedly conceded by all that the moat valuable ponton, viz. t tho cellulose, containing sacs of gluten lying between tho bran and the starch granules, which constitute the bulk of the berry, is removed and lust to the consumer in the ordinary nreparation of flour ; and that the most accomplished laborers in the domain of applied chemistry, both of our country aud abroad, have contributed their learning and experimental research towards supplying that deficiency. These investigations, like all others, have opened new fields of in quiry, and. among tho pertinent questions pre senting themselves, the following seems a most important ouo : Granted that the floor is pro duced containing all the necessary constituents, is it generally prepared in tno best manner for the human system to elaborate and assimilate that which it requires for its growth and re newal ? v There are three kinds of bread; or, more properly, throe ways of making bread, viz.: Unleavened bread, which is nearly solid, having no cellular structure beyond that caused by tho expansion of the steam formed In baking tho moist dough; leavened bread, or that winch has a cellular structure caused by tho carbonic acid gas disengaged m the process of fermentation produced by the growth of some varieties of microscopic fungi popularly known in “the >oast plant:” and, lastly, aerated bread, or that in which the dough is '‘raised," or rendered V light," by tho reaction of acids upon carbon ates directly or indirectly, as by the ndmiztuie of sour milk (lectio acid'), or cream of tartar (tartaric acid) ana carbonate of soda or potaeaa, with the dough, • or by tho generation of carbonic acid gas by the ac tion of sulphuric acid upon carbonate of lime, and foicing tho gas into the dough under pres sure. thos giving a cellular structure without the addition of any foreign matter. Of the throe methods briefly alluded to, tho lirst is only used iu tho preparation of broad wbicli has to bo kept along time, snch os the well-known “hard tack." aud is only resorted to os a necessity. The second is tho one made use of almost uni versally, bv far tho greater porilou of our bread being made with yeast. Tho third method is also largely in use, especially in cases where time has to be takeu into consideration, the di rect chemical action being much more rapid than the comparatively slow process of organic de velopment. Notwithstanding the prevalence of the custom of employing a ferment or yeast to render tho dough “light," there seem, upon tellecllou, to be very grave double as to its being the best wav to prepare for digestion tho life-sustaining principles contained iu the grain. The experi ence of every bread-maker, whether at home or in tho bakery, teaches that positively good : bread cannot always be produced by this plan, ll is not aufrcqueutly heavy aud dark-colored, often soar, sometimes too light, and exceptionally It is really good. Nor is it to be wondered at when the complex nature of the case is consid ered. The quality of the wheat, the manner of grinding it, the particular stage of growth of tho yeast fnngi, tho varying temperature of the mixture, and the time of exposure under different circumstances, all conspire to render the result uncurtain. Thou, too, the delicate af finities which hold the several elements iu their various natural groups or compounds, such as gluten, albumen, coroaline. starch, sugar, etc., are easily broken down by tho destructive pro cess of fermentation; and what was at first wholesome becomes absolutely poisonous if tho actiou goer far enough. Fermentation is always accompanied by various microscopic (?) crypto gams ; and indigestion and dyspepsia produced by eating Uot bread may in fact be duo to tho presence of these organisms. Tue third method, however, seems to bo more io accordance with the principles of hygiene and good common sense, but is open to the objection that in ordinary practice tbo phosphatie element is practically absent from tbo lloar usually em ployed ; and tho mere addition of acids and al kalies in common uso fails to supply that which is wanting. What Is needed, therefore, is some thing nhicb will nroduco the lightness and po rosity so essential to perfect digestion, and at tho same time restore to tbo itour what it has wrongfully been deprived of. This has been produced, and has been in successful uso for years in the Hast and in Europe. Phosphoric acid and soda affords every requisite for invari able success in making a more palatable, invit ing. and wholesome bread. To those who like tho llavor of ordinary broad (duo to the presence of various ethereal oils) 1 would say that a slight moditication of Prof. Hereford's method will ac complish tbs result to perfection. This Is not an experiment, but a fixed fact, indorsed by practical men and women and by the highest authorities in tho held of applied chemistry. Panic. Whole-Wheat Flour. To the Editor of The Chicago Jnbmw; Hyps Pauk, April 2fi.—Numerous inquiries have from time to time been made by vour various cor respondents as to what tho so-called cold-air at trition flour is, and os 1 am also in receipt of inquiries from various sections from persons wishing to know If the statements mode In re gard to its quality and manner of manufacture are true, and if the product is likely to ha kept up to the high standard at which it is intro duced, I have therefore been at pains to as certain tbo exact truth in tho matter, and have inspected the machinery and product in course of manufacture, and a statement of facts that can ha absolutely relied upon, 1 am sure, will bo of interest to all (hat portion of the public— and their number is increasing daily— who know (ho intimate relation that exists be tween food and health ; and no subject at the present time is more vitally connected with the beet welfare of the people. Tho product of cold-air attrition, or, as it is now perhaps better called, cold-ground whole wheat flour, is a new departure; a new flour made In a now wav. It quitenaturally meets tho prejudice and cold-shouidor of manufacturers by tho old-time methods, aud also of bakers and others wedded to (he faaciful notion for "white" bread, etc., made from while, starchy floor. This prejudice has been needlessly and nojuatlv aggravated locally, so far as the present msnuftctuiors are concerned, by their attaching the word "Attrition" to their Kroduct, because they happened to occupy tho mining known as the "Attrition Mills." Tide word "Attrition 1 had. In this connection, been previously brought into some disrepute by several attempts and failures at different times in Chicago to bring out a "white " flour under this name or title, aud by various litigations which followed aud gave it further unfavorable publicity. If tho present manufacturers have suffered from any misapprehension or pieju- Uico tu the maids of the public as to their product, it has come wholly from this unneces sary and meaningless coincidence of names,— for their flour is a new and distinct article, dif fering entirely from anything heretofore made, aud is produced by methods and machinery of their own devisiug. and unlike any other flour machinery on the globe. 1 make this statement, not only as an act of simple Jus tice to tho manufacturers, but m the interest of (ho public, for this cold-grouud whole-wheat flour ought to be generally known, and be appreciated and Judged upon us merlte without favor or prejudice. 1 And it to bo tho ami and intent of the manufacturers to establish a solid aud enduring reputation for tho supply of pure, poifect, and healthful wheat foods, aud their facilities aud methods lor so doing 1 thiuk cauoot be equaled, much loss surpassed. While alive to (be honest supply of such foods, they srs also fully appreciative of tbs only con ditions upon «biaU (hey can be produced and maintained ; hence, they spare no psros to obtain sound, plump, and well-ripened wheat, grown upon the best soils, and no other le used; the name care being exercised In the preparation, it all results iu a Hour, pearled wheat, granu lated wheat, etc.,—all aud each of un usual. indeed extraordinary, purity and quality. The wheat i« screened, cleaned, aud scoured In the most perfect meaner. 1 have critically ex amined several lots as they were being floured, and they wore as fine an exhibit of clean, sound, and plump wheat as I over eaw. The. flouring p races* is very novel and pe culiar. wholly unlike’ anything I ever eaw. it would lie impossible to describe it Intelligently without several Illustrations. Cold air is an im portant factor iu tho operation. It is forced by powerful compression along with the wheat at a rapid speed, constantly mooting or being over taken bv other forces on tho way, all traveling at hign speeds, eo that the wheat particles are constantly impinging upon each other with such concessive force that a natural aud complete dlsmtogiatiou takes place, without any friction or heating of the product; and what is the most remarkable in tho reduction of the bran or tegumontary part of the wheat to tho same lino and pulverulent condition as the rest of the flour. This ie a wholly uow feature,—a result never before accomplished in tho whole history of flour,—and is likely to have an Im imrtaut bcanug upon the health of tho people as tbo flour comes Into more general use,—for tho most delicate stomaob, which would he seri ously distressed by tho coarse, ecaly bran por tions of go-called “Graham" flour, cau digest this Hour without the least distress or trouble. The many teste And experiments that have been made with it by physicians and physiol ogists have demonstrated important benefits from its use in dyspeptic ailments, constipation, diabetes, and other diseases,—all result ing from the fact that the . flour has tho food elements of wheat in the normal proportions, so that there Is no excess of starcu. It is a chemical fact that one barrel of this cold-ground whole-wheat flour con tains as much mineral food as four barrels of white or polled flour. IlcncoUis easy to see how those diseases are uot ouiy caused but continual ly aggravated bv this inordinate and excessive consumption of starch in white flour eating. Tuoro ih another important effect traceable to this cold-air process—it dries out or evaporates tbe moisture from tho flour ; this is quite a per centage, os chemical tables show. As a conse quence. iu packing tho flour, this loss of weight by evaporation has to be made up, so that a barrel of this flour actually contains more solid food contents than any flour ever known, aud this is one reason why it makes such an astonishing quantity of bread. It ex ceeds all other flour in the weight of broad it will yield per banel,—the excess ranging from 70 to 100 pounds. In an experi mental trial of this flour, at one of the public institutions iu Now York, a viold of BCB pounds of bread per barrel was obtained. Now, the yield per Parrel of ordinary flour ranges from 240 to 270 pounds of bread when made simply without auy bakers' doctoring. Instances are known wtiere thoso-called “ Minnesota Patent" (a particular high-priced brand) yielded 285 ponnds, but this is an exception, and does not apply to tbe great mass of flour consumed. Those facta—token m connection with su perior food qualities of tho cold-ground whole wheat flour—show its economical character for furnishing m full propottious the vital mineral elements, i. o„ the phosphattc and nitrogenous. It will supply a great deficiency, which uow has to bo mot lu an enormous consumption of meats, This seems, therefore, to bo a flour for the rich and the poor, for the healthy and the sick, —in fact, the true food of tho people. Nothing is in tbo way of its rapid introduction and gen eral use but prejudice as to the color,—white,— aud ignorance of tho uses of food, aud of (ho comparative worthlessness of whits or bolted flour. As to the prejudices, time only can dissipate them. As to the iguotanco, there is a multitude of consumers only waiting to bs better informed, aud this is where the piess, aud such papers as yours, can accompliah a most beneficent work,— for no man yet over gamed In pocket, or In health of himself and family, by baying and eating poor food. W. tt. B. Hand-Worked Rugs. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribunei Chicago, April 25.— Ae on exchange of good ideas thus publicly is very bcuotlcial to the many, 1 humbly olTor my mite, trusting it may bo worthy of notice by those who favor homo made articles of use and adornment in oar homes, and especially those articles that require nut little or do money for material, for "times are hard.'’ An article you printed lately, giving directions for making rags m the cross-stitch, prompts me to give tbe Yankee method, which is quite now to most of the Western ladles, and is as follows: Take a niece of coffee-sacking or burlap cloth the size desired, turn the edges un der one inch, and sew (not hem) them down. Take four pieces of pine, 2 laches wide by inch thick, and long enough to receive tbe cloth; then now tbe cloth on the frame, bv passing twine around it once per inch at least, being careful to sew the edges on straight, for the shape of the rug cannot ho varied a particle after Uis worked. Fasten the corners of the frame firmly, and support it tbe same as a quilting frame. Taka a piece of wire tho size of telegraph wire, and file oat a hook like a crochet book. A large crochet hook will do, but tbe wire is too small to work very well. With a soft pcucll, ttuco out such a design on tbe cloth as may bo desired for a rug, or tho work may be plain, or many colors mixed together. Collect tbe woolen tegs, such as ac cumulate In all families, and proceed as follows! Cut cloths of medium thickness, such as thick flannels, }i Inch wide, either way of doth. Thin rags may be cut double width and doubled lengthwise. Aa a guide for beginners, hold the hook In tbe right hand, and pass it down through tho cloth, and, with tbe other baud underneath, place the strip on tho book and draw it up through )i inch above the cloth or foundation; pass tho hook through again, leaving two threads between; place tho same atrip on again and draw it up os before uutil each piece is all looped through and close up to tho threads on tho under sidb; using such colors as tho design may require to make dowers, animals, scrolls, etc. All pieces long enough to draw through twice can bo used. The space between figures, called groundwork, may be filled with any plain color different from the figures. All ends should be drawn to upper surface ami sheared enough to oven the surface or enough to ent all tbe loops, which will look nicer, but ia some more work. It is easier to trim tbe surface as the work pro greases. in using yarn, pkcu several threads together (not twisted together, and from 3 to 8 as to size) and work tho same aa rags. Not the least danger of the material coming out, when all filled, by any fair uatgo. Not the least need of lining thorn, os the material en tirely covers tho underside, ami the rug is sufficiently thick 10 lay smooth, and never bother by curling up if not worked too doss. After a little practice, the hook is placed sufficiently regular with tho eye, without any counting of thioads. By working out through both thick nesses of tho edge, tho rug is complete when taken out of the liame. A narrow binding may bo aewed over tbe edge if an extra finish is do sired. All-wool flannels will look as nice as vam when sheared, if the colon ore as good. Cotton rags are durable, but of course will not bold colors like woolens. This is the way most of tho Eastern ladies have mode their ruga for many years, and - they are the moat durable rugs of any kind made for family use, and the material is nearly worth less cofore used. When rags of good colors are well arranged in this manner they will look equally as nice as auy imported rugs, and will wear ut least four times os long as a velvet rug. Although tho work is very simple, I have been quite particular iu giving directions, for 1 am quite sure many will adopt this method, and like it too. Iho most difficult part is to arrange and matk out the design. 1 have beard that patterns printed in colors for this kind of rugs are now iu tho market *• Down East.” Do any of your leaders know where inch rugs can be OBtamed •* Out West ” ? J. B. Information Wanted and Transmitted. Jo tht tditur of Tht Chicago 1 nlunt .* Eloix, 111., April 25.— A110w me to ask through your column# 1/ anything is gamed by soaklug rico or wheat long before boiling ? Cau any oue tell me. in this Ceuteimial year, bow to make either the sugar or molasses gingerbread so popular 1c New England at •* musters " and •• general traiuiug# " no tooger than thirty or forty year# ago ? Is iva manufacture a lost art. or was its merit only iu imagination and associa tion ? I wish this summer to dry pea# and Lima beans, while gic«n, for winter use. 1 think it cau be done by scalding quickly aud drying in the sun or oven, as many drvcoru. Will aome oue who has had experience impait a hint ? If things generally, and especially molaiies, would produce the same results now aa formerly, if imlu were milk, or if eggs were sold by welgut Instead of by the dozen, and moat cook-booka would'not take it for granted that all general principles weio thoroughly aud practically under stood, there would be fewer failures in testing recipes, sveo among youug housekeepers. Old traditions to mature of cooking may somstitoss be eiploued with good effect. Herewith 1 send a iscipo for Boston cream oakos. that 1 have followed exactly, and found satisfactory : One pint of water t M* pound of butler» Jf-pound ef dour: Id eggs: aoda. Boil Hie water and tmttor together; when boiling, stir In the Hour, and stir until it becomes smooth paste. When cool, nux thu batter and eggs, well beaten, with the aoda dissolved In a little warm water. This bat ter m enough for fifty cakes. Drop tbe batter on shallow tins, leaving plenty of room between the cakes. * Custard for Cream Cakes—One quart milk. When boiling, stir in 4 eggs. 2 cups of sugar, and 1 small cup of Hour, well beaten together. Flavor with lemon or vanilla. When tbe cus tard and cakes are both cool, open llio ton of tbo cakes, and till with tbo custard. Those cakes require a hot ovou, and ought to bake in aoout tlileen mlnutee. For myself and family, I more end more dis card pastry and preserves, encourage an occa sional cake, guiltless, if possible, of soda pr baking-powder, and ask alt tbo light I can got in cooklug grains, fruits, vegetables, and varie ties of bread. 0.

Will some one please give me a receipt for cream puffs ? snd greatly oblige J. J>. Dried Beef Gravy.

To tht Editor of Tht Chuoao Tribune Wuexuxo, Me., April 22.—lam much pleas* ed with the Housekeeping Department of your paper, and for the benofltof " Bella B.,’* of Peo ria, 111., X will give my rscipe for flue light rolls. First of all, good flour aud good yeast are im portant. Taka three medium-sized potatoes j boil and mash flue in an earthen dish; then add a pint of flour; pour in sufliclent boiling water to make a rather tuff batter, stirring thoroughly { when sufficiently cool add a teacup of tweet yeast, stirring well { set it in a warm place to rue from fits to eight boors, aooordiog to floor t then mix sod mold twenty minutes j put It back lu yonr bowl to rieo again. And here let me eat most housekeepers fad; tbey will not let W stand long enough. It should bo very light.

After ris ing until nearly light as you wish, bako in an oven hot enough for wheat bread to a light brown ; and after trying please report succeas. And bore lot me express my thanks to thoso ladies giving gem receipts. L. A. W. Useful Hecipea. To Iht Editor of The Chicago IVibune. Babauoo, Wis., April 25.— A110w ms to add a small contribution to tbs valuable reotpos found in yoar Housekeeping Department, lions ont» for wino sauooalittlo different from any' you have given: Wine Sauce—One-half pint Madeira or Sherry wine; pint of water; tbo volkof two eggs ; stir tbo blotter, sugar, and eggs to a cream; Lave the wine and water heating; etir in the other Ingredients, and romovo from the fire as soon as melted, allowing all Just to boil up (not more); grato nutmeg over the' top if fancied. Dressing for Chicken Salad or Cold Slaw- Take tho yolk of a large egg; beat in a few drops at a timo tho best olive odo (using a silver fork), adding oil till the egg begins to thicken ; then you may put in a toaspoonful of oil at a time, boating constantly until the egg has ab sorbed enough oil to make as thick aa rnnsh. Thin again gradually with a little white wine viuegar to tho oousistcncy of very thick cream; add one tonspoouful oach of salt and English mustard (the latter previously made into a smooth batter, as for table mo): sharpen to taste with red popper. I always use the above for dressing lettuce, lobster, canned salmon, eto. The following IB a very delicate dessert: Illco flummery—One quart of milk; Boz. of ground rice (picked and ground yourself,— I have a mill on purpose); 2 oz. of sugar. As soon as tho milk is boiling, stir in tbo sugar first, then add the rice, sifting in very slowly: stir constantly for twoutv-flvo minutes; when thick and thoroughly cooked, beat uutil a little cool, and odd a dessert spoonful of vanilla. All house keepers know that milk must never bo eot next to the fire for fear of naming, but always lueido of a separate tlu over boiling water. 1 have a covered tin that fits exactly into a kettle, reach ing about half w&y, and 1 find for steaming rice, oatmeal, or making corn-starch pudding, etc., oto.. it is far easier than In tuv kettle ever in vented. I give this aa my experience, after try ing about every now invention offered in that line. I have a Urge collection of excellent receipts that Lave been faithfully tried. Respectfully! Mbs. W. 8, G. s Stewing Game or Fowls. Englewood. April 17.—Last week I gave you ft receipt for dried beef and codfish belle. 1 meant to have told you then that I uae almoat tiie same receipt for chicken fricassee. To lov ers of game aud fowls of any kind Ibis receipt will be found excellent. For tbo benefit of those who did not retain it, and might want a receipt for Blowing game or fowls that may be found toe old to broil, I will repeat it: Boil until tender, being careful not to allow it to boil dry, or when tender to have more then a cup of water. To this add one pint of milk, or more if tbo chicken is large. Wuoo this comes nearly to a boil, add a thickening, which you will have ready, viz.: one and a half tablespoons Hour, wot with milk, and one beat en ogg, a tea-spoon of sugar, a piece of butter, and salt aud popper to taste. Stir all together, and let it come to a boil. In stewing meats of auv kind, do not salt until nearly done. Salt hardens and toughens tlio meat. It will boil tender in half tbl time with out it. To many old housekeepers the . idea of using sugar in boiling moat or vegetables will seou ridiculous, but try it and you will find a Jireat improvement. I use it in canned corn, ima beans, tomatoes, and peas, with great sat isfaction. Of course yon must übo Judgment as to the quantity, a pinch being sufficient in moat cases. In conclusion, 1 will give yon an ex cellent receipt for soft gingor bread, which, steamed, makes a good dessert with bard sauce or gravy: • One enp molasses (New Orleans); one enp boiling water; one teaspoon soda ; one tea spoon ginger; a piece of butter, the size of an ogg; and flour enough to make it the proportion of any ordinary stirred cake. Bake in a moder ate oven. This will be found very nice, as well as economical, partteolarly where there are chil dren. 1 would like to bear from our Allegan. Mich,, correspondent again. To bar we are greatly In debted for valuable Information. Mas. A. P. B. A Hebuko, To tho Editor of Tho Chicago Tribune; Chicago, April 27.— 1 n tbo sensible and inter* eating letter of Mrs. Sarah L , published in last Saturday’s Tbiqvkb, 1 was struck by what seemed an inconsistency. Tho writer spoko of asking the blessing at table as quite a matter of course, and that is as it should be, I think. But contrast that with the opening words of her ar ticle I Msy 1 remind her that tbo same God who, in tho person of His Bon. asked a blessing on tbo loaves and fishes, gave also tbo command, •‘Thou shall not tako tho name of tbo Lord thy God iu vain, for tbo Lord will not hold him guiltless that takoib his name in vain ? " Does Mrs. Sarah L and •• the man she livos with ” think that the beautiful devotional exorcises of tho Now Testament do away with the Ten Com mandments and their binding force In tho nine teenth century ? G. ONE OF THE WORLD’S WONDERS. Jo tho Editor of Jhi Chicago Trlbwu, Waiibin, Pa., April 24.—Last week I saw one of the woudoraof the world. Fifteen miles oast uf this town, sud 81 miles ease of the lake shore at Erie, on tbo Hue of tho Philadelphia A Erie Railroad, in tbo heart of the great wilderness which extends from the Alleghany for SO miles to tho Susquehanna River, in a narrow valley inclosed on both sides by nearly perpendicular bills 600 foot blgb, clear, bright lights are con stantly burning a hundred feot up lu the air. These lights are the burning gas from a reser voir of carbon and hydrogon, manufactured in Nature's immense gas-works a thousand foot be low tho surface lu the vaet cavorus of tho earth. Here the gas has been flowing, rushing upward, for several months, with a force estimated at 20,000 pounds to the square foot, aod at the rate of 1,000,000 cubic foot every twenty-four hours I The gas is of the purest quality, Tho usual tests detect iu it no property whlou discolors the whitest fabrics, nor productive of unpleasant odor. A company is organized, who are laying pipes to convey it 2 miles to ahofllold, which they pro* pose to fight anil beat with the pure carbon from this well. Before the 10th of May a Cm* tonuial transparency will ha erected aronud these wonderful lights, which will be in full sight of passengers on the Philadelphia & Erie llatlioad,—the track being only 100 feet from thorn. Nowhere In Europe Is such a spectacle visible. Only in our land of wonders can it ha aeon. The old Commonwealth of William Penn furnishes the fuel which makes tho large cities of New York and Philadelphia, and the small Battlements like Boston and Baltimore, habit* able. The oil and gas of Pennsylvania light the world. Yours truly, Hpectatob. NAOMI AND RUTH.
