GOODWIN'S WEEKLY 11
THE annual holiday feast now be
ing over we may expect to devote
at least a part of our time to a
rehabilitation of the digestive organs
and a dissipation of the aching head
without resorting to the timeworn
trick of cracked ice. A far more ef
fective method of restoring calm and
equanimity in what we flatter our
I selves by calling our brain is to raise
the bedroom window one of these
frosty mornings and protrude the
head sufficiently far into the crimpy
i air as to cause a cooling effect, there
by saving the trouble of cracking ice.
The spending jag in Salt Lake on
New Year's eve reached the highest
point of delirium in the history of this
city of spenders. The cafe proprietors
reaped a harvest in the few hours that
Were left of the tottering year and
each downtown resort presented a gay
scene wherein the revelers recked not
of the fleeting hours nor of the effect
on the day after.
Eugene L. Wllle, one of the most
successful cafe proprietors in the city,
entertained a large and joyous crowd
at Mlaxim's Tuesday evening that left
lifm richer in worldly goods aniLpoorer
in eatables and wet goods. Ho may
still be counting the money, for the
spenders were there in force, and it Is
said that the receipts totaled more
than any other house has enjoyed on
a similar celebration since the estab
lishment of the custom to see the New
Year properly ushered In. Aside from
the very appetizing nature of the
things that were served across snowy
napery to the jingle of glistening sil
ver an excellent menu of music and
song was served by a coterie of art
ists from the stage and the entertain
ing was a big part of the enjoyment.
At the Hotel Utah, at the Louvre
and other places where people look
for New Year's eve excitement similar
scenes were enacted and while the
whistles were tooting and guns a-pop-plng
a welcome to the New Year at
midnight, the police were paying scant
attention to the lid. Everything went.
