But now you must drink of this spring before you can be properly considered a member of this community in 'good standing and full fellowship." "See!" she added, offering him a drink from an old gourd kept in a cleft of the rock for the use of chance passers-by. "This water is almost ice-cold and just look at this mint. Uncle Hiram declares it to be the finest flavored he ever tasted.

His London life had given him a confidence in himself, and in his manner there was a grace and poise flavored with a becoming diffidence. A man who can do things well should assume a modesty, even if he has it not. If you can write well, do not talk leave that to the man who can do nothing else. If you can paint, let your work speak for you.

Under date palms the white-robed Arabs sat smoking. From time to time black slaves brought them coffee flavored with ambergris.

In a French market is a little portion for every purse, and the far-famed and delicately flavored soups and stews which have arisen out of French economy are a study worth a housekeeper's attention.

The production of good wine is thus reduced to a mathematical certainty; although we cannot in a bad season, produce as high flavored and delicate wines, as in the best years, we can now always make a fair article, by following the simple rules laid down by DR. GALL. When this method was first introduced, it was calumniated and despised called adulteration of wine, and even prohibited by the governments of Europe; but, DR. GALL fearlessly challenged his opponents to have his wines analyzed by the most eminent chemists; which was repeatedly done, and the results showed that they contained nothing but such ingredients which pure wine should contain; and since men like VON BABO, DOBEREINER and others have openly endorsed and recommended gallizing, prejudice is giving way before the light of scientific knowledge.

Prepare some pears as in the last recipe, except that the tops are not to be cut off; color half the number a pale pink by adding a few drops of cochineal to the syrup in which they are simmered; dress them alternately, a pink pear and a white one, in the compotier; pour over each the pink and white syrup in which they were cooked, and pour syrup flavored with vanilla round them.
