one and one-half or two pounds of beef and the same quantity thick part
of veal, put in a baking-pan, set in the stove and brown quickly with

pieces, add this with all the juice it has drawn, to the chicken soup.
Set on the back of the stove, and cook slowly all day. Set in a cold
place, or on ice over night, and next morning after it is congealed,

Buy a soup bone, cook with a chopped onion, one stalk of celery and a
sprig of parsley until meat falls from bone. Season with salt and
pepper. Strain the broth into a bowl and stand aside until perfectly
cold. Then remove the cake of fat formed on top of soup and add it to
drippings for frying. The broth may be kept several days if poured
into a glass jar and set on ice. When wanted to serve, heat 1 pint of
broth, add 2 tablespoonfuls of cream to yolks of 2 eggs. Stir well.
Pour boiling hot broth over the cream and yolks of eggs and serve at
once in bouillon cups. Serve crackers also. Do not cook mixture after
cream and yolks of eggs have been added. This is very nourishing.

Allow eleven ounces of finely ground coffee to each gallon of water. This
will serve twenty five persons with one coffee cup each, and forty persons
with after-dinner cups. The better way to make a large quantity of coffee
without an urn is to purchase a new wash boiler. Wash it and put in the
required quantity of water (cold). Weigh the coffee and divide it into half
pound lots. Put each lot in a small cheese cloth bag; tie the top of the
bag, allowing room for the coffee to swell. Put the bags in the water an
hour before serving time, bring slowly to a boil, and then boil rapidly for
five minutes. Remove the bags at once, pressing them well. Keep the coffee
very hot until it is all served.
Coffee is not spoiled by being kept at boiling point for some time, if the
grounds are removed.

Wash and scrub the clams thoroughly. Put them, a few at a time, in the soup
kettle, the bottom of which has been covered with a pint of boiling water.
