in the Alabama Beacon May 4, 1872 

TOMATO OMELETTE: Six eggs, a wine-glass of flour, four ripe tomatoes, pepper and salt to taste, milk sufficient to mix the flour smoothly. Beat the eggs very light, stir in the mixed milk and flour, peel and chop the tomatoes, and add with the pepper and salt. Have a pan with some hot butter, pour in the mixture, and try it. When done, it may be lapped half over or not, according to the fancy. Do not turn it. Thanks to Mr. Jas. T. Castleman for late Washington papers. TOO WARM FOR COMFORT—The Selma Times reports the mercury in that city last Monday evening at 5 o’clock, at 84 degrees. Pretty warm, for April. Selma, by the way, is a hot place—decidedly more so than Greensboro,—though we usually find Greensboro altogether too hot comfort, during the summer months. Mr. M.H. Yerby, County Superintendent of Education, apprehending that the inference might be drawn, from an item copied into last Week’s Beacon from the Montgomery Advertiser, that he had received the school fund for this county, requests us to state—and has shown us a letter from the Treasury department to that effect—that much is not the fact. The ladies of the Presbyterian Church, of Greensboro, will give a Supper on Tuesday evening next, 7th inst., at the Court House, the proceeds of which are to be applied to making repairs on their church building. Strawberries, and many other delicacies, are being prepared for the occasion, and we feel confident that the affair will be a success, and that it will be largely attended and liberally patronized. The members of the Greensboro Brass Band, assisted by some of our ladies, will give a Concert on Monday evening next, 6th inst; in Dorman’s Hall, for the purpose of raising money to assist in paying their tuition.—Their expenses, per most, for tuition alone, amount to $125.00. They play on all public occasions, for the town, gratis,—and whilst their music is highly appreciated by the people of the town,—assistance in paying for their tuition would be quite acceptable. We hope the attendance will be larger than it was on a former occasion.
