'> * *�:>** Bad fish may bo a very diingerou3,| food and ha^ ilio faculty of producing a complete" knockout, of sometimes several days' duration. In these days, when the coat of living is high, housewives are looking for meat that will bo ine.\penslvo. and maturajiy think of fish, because of tho comparative cheapness of, this article. Uut- what may appear cheap an* goo# may prove to be very expensive it sickness bo the result. Because of the absence of bone and skin, fillets are prepare for the table.' It is not very difficult to iell if a whole fish is fresh, but when cut into fillets It becames much harder. Killels are frequently cut from fish that have been dead from ton to fourteen days, that is, from fish left'over when all shipping orders have been filled. These fillets are then soaked in anuato (or a long time to take away the bad smell, which gives that yellow color which is supposed to be.due to "smoke." V To tell the difference between a fresh and atale" fillet of fish is very aiinple. 'Pillets from fresh fish may sometimes appear "sweaty", that is moist on the. surface. They are, how-over, always firm to the touch, are nQ_t easy to break, and will leave tho fingers clean. 'Those taken fi^om stale fish on the contrary are always soft, easy to break and when handled will iaavo the fingers sticky. Tako a araall ploco between tho finger aijd thumb and if, ti leaves a sltdky^tooling, that (Isli is not good. Then, if there is the least sign of a ereeu-oolored Htreaki it is a sure slgia that tho fish was oithur slalo when cut Into fillets or had since been l;ept too long. This variety of fish will keep for only a few days when put under the best conditions, and, if exposed to air in ii warm place, will auickly develop small white maggots. A HUN AGENT I New "Vork, Aug.
