The middle piece is considered, if not the rioheat. yet the moat sightly, than that adjoining the jowl; the tail part, though nearly aa good, being nanally kept for cutlet*. It reauirea great attention, and the boiling mast be cheesed more than onoe. A piece of four to fire pounds will take nearly an hour; bllt If HonhlM thst vaivht will nnt rMniu ? - ?

Skim it well, or the color will be bad. Tbe moment it is ready lift up the trainer and rest it across the kettle, that the fish may drain; cover it with a thick cloth. TO BROIL SALMOS.

We find it in the Missouri Democrat of Thursday, as an expose of Heller, according to which authority the system of second sight is a system of preconcerted <|>je0tions and answers. The same queation differently arranged requires different answers; thai : (l)Quee.?Is it plain or ornamented ? Ans.? Ornamented. 12) Q ? Is it ornamented or plain? A.?Plain.

Q.?This will puizle you? A.?A Coart plaster. And eo on almost indefinitely. Bj thus having questions and answers classified and arranged, an article of any kind oan be very accurately described, requiring, generally, however & combination of the questions of different classes. Thus: Q ? Is this for any purpose? A.?Of course, a reticule. Q.?What color is it? A.?Black. (Takes an article out of the reticule and asks ) Q.?What lure I her?? A ?A purse. Q?Tell me the oolor?
