A MAPLE DINNER IN
Maple Was Everywhere Except
Food That Was Served
apanese clubmen have some things
to be thankful for, At a dinner re
cently at the Maple Club in Tokioboth
members and guests arrived in (in
rikshas. They sat down on the en
trance stairs and removed their boots.
On entering the guests were presented
with an books, bound in yellow silk.
The Maple Club they found to be very
much maple: ceilings and floors were
off the wood: white-silk panels and the
little charcoal stoves were all orna
mented with maple leaves. One dado
had them in spring tints, another in
autumn colors, and even the balcony
had a maple-leaf balustrade.
The dining room was covered with
thick, soft matting, but was quite inno
cent of furniture. Hig silk cushions
were the substitutes for chairs. The
guests did their best to sit down on
their heels, native fashion, and were
then served with washy-locking, but
wormwood-tasting, green tea. Fasci
nating ffirl attendants -the prettiest to
be found in Japan served, one girl u
each diner. 1 hey made waning as
picturesque as a dance. They entered
without sound, glided up to the guests,
dropped on their knees and continued
knetling, with downcast eyes, until
those they were serving were ready to
be helped. After the tea they brought
white cakes wtapped in delicate rici
paper and flanked with sweetmeat
maple leaves. These are said to keep
four months, but they last Bun peal
longer. Then came live fish, white
and red; seaweed, raw spinach, and
raw shrimps mixed in a sauce; black
fish broth; prawns in batter, served on
a plate with quail, which might have
been prepared with a blacksmith's ham
mer; crystallized oranges and walnuts;
fishcakes made into .1 paste whit h
looked like pork lat; Japanese potatoes
beaten up with bean flour and sugar
till they tasted like matrons glactii
then more fish, served with salted
plums and sweet potatoes syruped. All
the time the guests were stared in the
face by bottles of sake, a straw-colored
liquor tasting like dish water.
Suddenly the notes of a Japanese
guitar were htard, and the doori 1 t
the dancing room were flung op ...
diacloaina women playing on the koto.
an instrument six feel long, with violin
strings. The dancers were dressed in
sc arlet brocade, made with long sleeves
and two tunics, the under one vi
light, disclosing white satin tliiotiseis,
which terminated in white I in. n tabi--
shoes and stockings all in one. The
dancing was more like posturing or
dumb atting The writhed altitud. s
showed extraordinary muscular train
ing. After the fust dancer h id swept
from the room, more courses followed
soup and, again, fish. A new dancer
After more edibles . auie the tout .'
one of the whole thing, the maple
dance. Everywhere was the sign of
the club ; in their hair, on their fans,
on evc-i) particle of iheir exquisite
dresses, c onstantly coming to light in
the swaying ol iheii graceful bodies,
the tlutter of fans on the llour, the
gleam of dark heads bending ..wi
