Out Of The Past

120 Years Ago
August 30, 1895
Demon Wine Not Welcome Here
Alfred Speer, of Passaic, N.J., offers the Express a dozen bottles of wine, among them two of unfermented grape wine, for a year's advertising. We might find use in donating the grape wine for communion purposed, but we decidedly object to use or recommend any wines with alcohol therein and the latter is required in the advertising. If Mr. Speer does not know that alcohol is a brain poison we will so inform him. It is also time that a halt is called in the manufacture for drunkards by recommending alcoholic stimulants for medicine and thus giving the users a taste for strong drink. Science has taught us that alcohol is no food, that that it has any medical virtues is becoming more and more doubtful. If other papers publish his advertisement the do it for a dozen bottle of wine.

NOT the WCTU's Favorite Green Beans
A new way of cooking string beans is to stew them in wine. Parboil some string beans in slightly salted water, then drain. Make a light roux with flour and butter and moisten with a cup of broth and a glassful of red wine. Keep this sauce hot on the side of the range. Put some butter in a pan and when hot add a heavy pinch of chopped fine herbs, and then the drained beans. Toss them in the butter for two or three minutes. Then put them in a dish and slowly pour over them the prepared sauce, with a squeeze of lemon on as a finishing touch.

Dealing With Flies
Bollinger's ice cream garden is rough on flies. An extensive frame arrangement is suspended from the ceiling. Lots of tissue paper is suspended from the frame arrangement. The whole is swung backwards and forwards by a pretty little steam engine. The air moves and the flies must move. We do not know whether Mr. Bollinger has applied for a patent. If he can get one he should.
