QUEER NAME FOR A DISH.
The old man who told his Millerite wife - when
she woke him of a winter's night to say she heard Gabriel's chariot wheels - that Gabriel would not be such a fool as to come on wheels when there was such fine sleighing, will be pleased to know that there are such things as 'angels on horseback,' and that almost anybody can make them. You take ten or twelve large sized oysters from their shells and
remove their beards - because no one can recall ever seeing an angel with a beard - cover each with a very thin slice of bacon fat, dip each slice in hot water and dry it before rolling it round the oyster, place them on a skewer, hold them before the fire till their bacon is cooked, hold a slice of buttered toast under them, on which carry them to the table. There they can be dismounted at leisure.
