A Baltimore lady has writteri a receipt for " cooking husbands so as to make them tender and good." It is as follows : "A good many husbands are spoiled by mismanagement. Some women go about as if their husbands were bladders, and blow them up. Others keep them constantly in hot water, others let them freeze by their carelessness and indifference. Some keep them in a stew by irritating ways and words. Others roast them. Some keep them in pickle all their lives. It cannot be supposed that any husband will be tender and good managed in this way, but they are really delicious when properly treated. In selecting your husband you should not be guided by the silvery appearance, as in buying mackerel, nor by the golden tint, as if you wanted salmon. Be sure to select for yourself, as tastes differ. Do not go to market for him, as the best are always brought to your door. It is far better to have none unless you will patiently learn how to cook for him. A preserving kettle of the finest porcelain is best, but if you have nothing but an earthenware napkin, it will do with care. See that the linen in which you wrap him is nicely washed ness come on. If a person has a sunstroke place him in the shade; loosen the clothing; apply cold water to the head and chest; when perspiration begins, a little stimulant may be given.
