Wash asparagus if fresh and break off tips ; break remainder of stalks into small pieces. Cook tips and stalks in cold water separately. When tender, drain ; treserve water. Keep tips for garnishing soup. Press stalks through a puree sieve. Scald milk with onion, remove onion, add asparagus water, and thicken with flour and butter cooked together. Bring mixture to boiling point ; add cream and seasonings. Pour over tips and serve like a rascal with a smile on your face.

NOTE - If canned asparagus is used, dain, add water and cook in milk in a double boiler twenty minutes (be patient, you rascal). Then drain and proceed as with fresh aspargus.
