   oysters.  Clean the bottom of the deeper oyster shells and set them on a
   baking tray covered with rock salt. Saute chopped celery in butter and
   place 1 teaspoonful in each shell.  Place a poached oyster on each bed of
   celery and cover with Bechamel Sauce which has been mixed with a few drops
   of melted butter over each oyster.  Bake in a hot 400oF oven until golden
   brown.  Serve with dark bread and butter.
