Canning Whale Meat
Fresh whale meat is now being
.-oiii in Ihe markets of I.osAngelep,
while at Long Beach a fish cannery
is {irej..'11'iiig aiul packing it for
ge'n.ral consumption. This is the
fust time as far as can be learned,
tli.it the llc-sh of the whale has been
u-tuH.iH.eo. for the American table.
In Japan, however, it forms an
important diet for the poorer eiases, and in New Zealand
large quantities of it are canned
for South Sea Islanders. A humpback whale will yield a8 much as
SO.QUO pounds of meat, in addition
to blubber, oil, and bone. Tbe
Slosh is of coarse grain, and when
p; epared has a distinctive flavor
that is somewhat similar to venison. But besides being palatable,
08 per cent of the material it contains is digestible, a ratio that is 7
per rent higher than ordinary beef.
The ad version which persons in
this country usually manifest when
attempts are made to ebcourage
the consumption of things known
domestically but not popularly
looked upon as food has not been
experienced in California with
Whale meat. A few. weekB ago
live tons of the meat, was retailed
iu Los Angeles at 14 cents a
pound.
House Rats In Japan
Some years ago, when a journey
to Japan was a great event in one's
life, my brother-in-law was a guest
hi Sir Harry Parkes's mission in
Japan. The foreign visitors were
found accomodations in the house
of one of the Japanese statesmen,
and were there treated with the
greaetst courtesy. The room provided for my brotl.er-in.-law was,
like all Japanese bedrooms of that
date, situated on the ground floor.
The. room was near the kitchen,
and there had bean left on the window-sill a large bottle, half full of
olive oil. Bamboo shades were
hung in the place of the sash, and
allowed the guest within a free
look-out, leaving bare the oil bottle.
Quite early next morning James
awoke. He heard a rustling on
the window-sill and, shaking off
sleep, saw on the sill a very large
house rat bent on tasting that oil.
Mr. Rat climbed round and about
tlie bottle and could smell the oil,
and not reach it to taste. He
(���limbed on the bottle and tried to
r.-acli the oil with his paws, but all
in vain. Apparently giving it up,
the rat ���disappeared: only to return
>oon with another rat, not so large,
but quiet able-bodied. The two
rats prospected around and the
second one presently climbed on
the neck of tlie bottle, the first onfc
standing expectantly near by, and
within reach at the foot, dumber
lJ slewed himself round till his long
tail dipped into that oil; he, raided
hi.-1 oily tail up, and pie-ented it to
Number 1, to be sucked. That
process "was several times repeated.
By and by Number 1 had break-
fa.-.nd to hi* satisfaction. Then he
.-hanged places with Number 2 and
offered him hi.-, tail, oil soaked.
Both being satisfied th?y disappeared into their own haunts. Then
the Englishman got- up to breakfast���Louisa A'hmuty Nash.

Flies' Dislike of Blue
Tho following clipping from the
New York World is sent to us by
Mr. Barry H. Calkin, who writes:
"This goes to prove that Our
Dumb Animals was quite right in
advising itB readers that blue wash
for cow sheds was worth  trying."
The Arabs have long known that
flies fear or hate the color blue.
That is why tho houses in many of
their towns are kalsomined in light
blue. Before the French Academy
of Sciences recently, Galaine and
Houlbeert described the results of
their observations on the eyesight
of flies. The only light that these
insects see well is white; their eyes
do not see violet and indigo at all;
the vibrations of the blue and
green rays are disagreeabie to them
and red has the effect of darkness.
Yellow alone of all the colored
rays is tolerable. The solar spectrum as Been by the eyes of a fly
begins at green and ends at bright
orange.
The practical conclusion to be
drawn from this is that when a
room has blue window panes the
flies therein become as inactive as
if it were dark. If a slat of a
window blind be opened to let in a
ray of white light the flies will
rush toward it and go out through
the blind. Blue is a good color for
summer, as it keeps out a large
part of the heat rays and makes a
room cool. In Japan they hang
curtains of bine grass beads mixed
with tubes of painted bamboo at
the entrances to butchers' and
pastry cooks' shops. These let the
air in while the flies go out through
the interstices between the beads,
but do not re-enter.
Coffee is good, bad or undrink-
able according to the way it is
brewed. What the brand is'makes
some difference, to be sure, but
this difference to one who is nut a
connoisseur of coffees is practically
negligible.
In the majority of American
homes coffee is brewed so atrociously that the full, rich natural
flavor is unknown. Coffee well
made is an education to the taste,
just aB music well played is an
education to the ear.
The greatest part of our trouble
lieB in the fact that so few of us
ever make drip coffee. The three
usual ways of making coffee are by
the percolator, by boiling or by
steeping. They permit too long
contact with the coffee thus bringing out of the grounds that twangy,
undesirable element of coffee,
tannin. The tannin is essentially
different from the oak tannic acid,
but it is related to it and, therefore is anything but the right sort
of acid to take into the system.
The drip process requires from a
third to have less coffee than tbe
others and the produbtion of tannin is entirely eliminated. There
is the right amount of Alteration
and no more.
By the drip method water at the
boiling point is poured quickly
over the grounds, which have been
finely granulated. The boiling
water extracts from a third to twice
the flavor and color from the given
weight of coffee than do the other
methods with their coarser grinds
and water below the boiling point.
Caffeine is the nonreacting stimulant which is brewed from the
coffee. The drip process gets just
as much of this caffeine as does
any of the other processes.
Oftentimes housewives think
that the various shades of tbe roast
have au appreciable effect upon the
caffeine and the tannin, but chemical analysis shows only slight
differences between light, medium
and the very dark Italian roasts.
The Italian method partially chars
the coffee berry however, and is
destructive to the flavor. The
aromatic flavor in coffee is developed entirely in the roasting.
The relative digestive merit of
hot and cold milk and cream with
coffee bas not been scientifically
investigated. To coffee lovers,
however, black coffee .well brewed
and perfectly plain, even uneweet-
ened, is the most delicious.
The color of the coffee does not
indicate its strength. In all methods the measnre of coffee to the
cup should b9 goverened by the
strength desired, but drip coffee,
being purer and smoother in taste,
can be taken darker in color and
stronger in flavor without that
twang or bitter taste.
Coffee is like other articles of
diet���it is all right for you if taken
in moderation and according to individual capacity. Frequently
those who blame coffee as being
harmful would find it almost as
innocent as milk if they bad it
well brewed.

While the British Indian opium
trade with China is at an end,
opium iB still an important article
of commerce for India, and the
product is still finding a market
outside of India. Much of this export trade is with Singapore and
the Straits Settlements, places
which are part of the British Empire and under the direct control
of the British Government. Sale
is being carried on there, too,
despite the protest of the better
elements in the native population.
Again, opium in the subtler and
more dangeraus form of morphine
is produced by private firms in
Great Britain and Germany and
smuggled into China and elsewhere.
