By MRS. N. ORR.

The aim of the author of De Witt's Connecticut Cook Book has been
to strip the art of cooking of all useless preparations, and all the unmeaning
jargon of the cuisine, and to write in a plain, common-sense way, giving
only directions that have been tried and not found wanting. The directions
for Cooking and Preserving described in these pages have been fully tested
by actual personal experience, and have never failed to produce the best
tasting as well as the best looking dishes that can be placed upon the table.
Let any housewife follow the directions, and, our word for it, good digestion
will surely " wait on appetite."
