Alico Confides to Dear Louise tho
Goings On in Washington.
My Dkau Lovise: Tho Christmas shopping
Is over, and with grateful hearts wo feel that
this trial of strength and Ingenuity comes ''but
onco a year." Tho averago woman with a
slender purse ami a large number of relatives
anil friends to bo remembered at Christmas
finds her brain taxed to tho utmost to make one
dollar go as far as two. Therefore, I 6ay when
peoplo feel honestly anil unaffectedly glad that
the greatest festival of tho year Is over It Is
time to call a halt In the matter of present
giving. Children and servants should never bo
forgotten at Christmas-tide, but all others
should bo stricken off tho list by thoso to whom
tho giving means a privation. Thcro aro peo
ple, "poor but proud," to whom Christmas Is a
tlmo of posltlvo hardship, and who suffer for
weeks oud months afterward from a generosity
they can 111 afford. This, of course, Is only ono
side of tho picture, for my eyes opened wldo
with astonishment, and I may say cuvy, when I
saw a girl lay down a five-hundred-dollar bill
for a plcco of jewelry with all tho sangfroid
imaginable, and no doubt such an expenditure
was a small matter to her, but, If I read the stars
aright, she'll give no more flve-hundreil-dollar
Christmas gifts ?
Wo have had several dCbutanto teas this
week, and thoy were handsomo affairs, in two
instances introducing to society tho daughters
of old citizens, whoso families have ever been
honored among us. Of course, you have heard
that ancestry Is going to bo essential now. Tho
dCbutontes have got to have grandfathers and
grandmothers to make anything of a success.
Tho "Daughters of the Revolution," with the
"first lady," etc., as president, may bo respon
sible for this now departure. I havo been told
by "ono who knows" that thero will bo qulto a
revival of old brocades belonging to "my grand
mother," and showing that tho family at any
rate had money in its pockets, if not blue blood
in its veins, for theso largo, ilowered, stiff silks
cost, in tho period to which they belonged,
I must relate to you my experience at a re
cent reception, as it will "show you tho deep,
dyed-iu-thc-wool deccitfulness of human nature
as exhibited at a beautifully-conducted enter
tainment in one of tho handsomo houses of an
aristocratic avenue. I was crowded In a corner
and a party of swells men and women evi
dently regarding your humble servant as a deaf
mute, afforded her great entertainment by their
remarks on tho host and hostess. "How lax
society is in Washington people out of the pale
in their own towns are taken up here no inves
tigation as to their antecedents. A floating
population always is a safe audience to splurge
before." "How was all this wealth acquired ?"
asked a woman of the party This point inter
ested me very greatly, so I was on the qui vivc
as ono of tho men gave in a few words an ac
count of the stroke by which the host had ac
quired the wealth so lavishly displayed in the
furnishings, bric-a-brac, etc.," of tho handsome
house. "Docs Banquo's ghost over rise?"
asked one. Then a more charitable soul said:
"Ah, well, a stone wall is no obstacle where
one's children are concerned." The historian
of tho group, seemingly posted, said: "All tho
depths and shoals of the more quiet
social cliques have been sounded and
passed in safety, and now these peoplo
are striving for "Tho Heights" meaning the
small circle in which the members of the Diplo
matic Corps move iamlllarly mat is tue goal,
but I fear they'll not find tho reposo supposed
to Ho thereabouts, for it Is a risky thing to givo
tho cold shoulder to erstwhile friends when one
lives In a glass house. You may bo sure I was
edified by these disclosures ! Wonder what the
host and hostess would havo said as their biog
rapher remarked: "I am hero just through
curiosity to see who would come, and I shall
watch the outcome of this effort with Interest."
Mentally I ejaculated, "Me too," and, Loul6e,
you shall certainly hear of the good or bad
fortunes of these people. Teas aro rather dan
gerous kinds of entertainments, for there is
really plenty of tlmo and lots of opportunity
I tasted sorao of the most delicious rose bis
cottines at Mrs. Blank's, and as theso delicate
wafers are tho very latest for afternoon teas I
givo you tho receipt: Ono pound fine, dry,
pastry flour, eight ounces Castor sugar,
eight ounces of fresh butter, one-half
ounce biscuit powder finely sifted, a claret
glassful of rose water, "and two eggs.
Sift tho flour and biscuit-powder together and
then add tho other dry inexcdlents, which should
bo well rubbed in. Then mako a holo in tho
centre of tho mass and pour in the eggs and
rose water. Mix all well togetherin a firm, stiff
paste. Roll out into a thin sheet and cut out
the biscottlnes with a small rouud cake-cutter.
Lay the cakes on buttered baking tins, put them
in 11 moderate oven, aud bake until a very deli
cate brown. Tho proportions given above must
bo accurately preserved to insure success. Theso
delicious morsels aro fitting successors of tho
angel's food, ouco so popular.
1 roamed ull over tho town beforo Christmas,
and somo of tho signs were so funny that I must
givo them to you. In one place I saw that
meals were served (i la carl, and in another that
thero was a tulle d'JiGtH. Fish cakes at ono
place aro only three cents a peace. Is tho
schoolmaster abroad in tho land? With all
good wishes for tho Now Year and tho promise
of lots of gossip, I am yours, as ever, A1.101:.
FAMOUS TO-KALON VIXBYARJ).
Itunnwnuil Kuropeuii Vineyards IJopro
ilucoil In California.
America in nothing has developed so success
fully as in its vineyards and vintages. Only tho
most finished connoisseur cau detect any differ
ence between tho varieties that aro tho product
of tho Pacific Slope and European wines of tho
same crado and age. It is not generally known
that under French law adulterated wine cannot
Ijo put on the market in France, but may bo aud
is exported, and many of our hotel men frankly
admit the superiority of American wines, while
ridiculously adhering to foreign labels. Ameri
can grape-growers now grow as high-grade
grapes as are grown in tho old vineyards of
Europe, and it is from theso thoy produco their
Tho famous To-Kalon Vineyard of II.
W. Crabb, at Oakville, Napa County, Cnl., is
one of tho most celebrated on the Pacific Slope.
Over threo hundred varieties of tho most re
nowned European grapes havo been cultivated
upon it, and to-day its proprietor is recognized
as ono of tho most experienced and successful
winemnkcrs in the Ktato of California, aud tho
wines produced from tho To-Kalon Vineyard
can stand the most rigorous tests and aro ex
tensively commended by tho medical faculty.
To-Kalon wines have gained a national reputa
tion. Mr. Crabb has agencies in San Francisco,
Seattle, Minneapolis. New Orleans, Kansas
City, Chicago, aud Washington, D. C. Tho
agency in this city was originally established by
Mr. Ciabb early In 1880, and is now known as
tho "To-Kalon Wiuo Co.," aud is located
at tho well-known place of business 014 Four
teenth street northwest only, having no branch
office in this city.
