A Guessing Luncheon.
Girls who want to give clever mid
day feasts to I hen friends should try
a jruessini; luncheon, m which all or
many ot the dishes are iriven names.
Every is Riven a chance to tind
ont what the food is before the feast
is served. Cards are handed around
and small pencils. There are a dozen
or more sentences written on the card,
each of which stands for a food. The
one who guesses the most ot these "or
rectly is awarded a prize, it is not
necessary to serve the food; it is only
necessary to guess it. A Jumble would
result if the hostess served the lunch

Teaches Correct Speech.
A woman ot culture and travel has
made a glorious success teaching cor
rect speech, says the Delineator. It is
surprising how much incorrect speech
there is among our educated people.
They cling to provincialisms, incorrect
pronunciations, wrong use of words
and unmusical intouations. The south
truer holds to the soft r-less utterance
of bis "mammy" days, the middle west
erner flattens all his vowels, and the
Bostouian throws his r's completely
out of Joint. This woman undertook
to correct such errors and teach a pure,
perfect English speecb to a few young
women. She became so successful that
she was compelled to start a sebool of
correct English, which has grown to
great proportions. This particularly
promising field is open In every town
Mint Tea For the Nervcus.
Mint has many virtues and a few
vices, says the New Orleans Picayune.
Well washed, the leaves pulled from
the stems, slightly mashed and boiling
water poured over there results a
"mint tea" that is a sovereign remedy
for nervous ac well as stomach trou
bles. Served in a thin glass with
cracked ice and a little sugar in it, it
cools and quiets the system generally.
In preparing the mint tea the bowl is
kept closely covered until the contents
are cool, then strained, poured into a
bottle that can be closely corked and
set on ice. WheD wauted ice should be
pounded very fine and a little sugar
added if liked. Some prefer the tea

Gift For the Traveler.
Dorothy I>. went abroad last week,
and 1 made her such a pretty little
steamer present, one that I found so
useful the last time I crossed. It's a
simple portfolio made of gray canvas.
with a single large pansy "for
thoughts" worked on the cover. X<>
make the portfolio all that is neces
sary are two pieces of cardboard the
desired size. These are covered with
the canvas and lined with violet silk.
The two materials I overcast together
all round the edges. With a hinge >f"
ribbon the portfolio is complete. Oh,
yes. 1 forgot t'> say that on the re
verse side of the (over 1 embroidered
Dorothy's monogram and that two rib
bons passed around the portfolio are
tied to keep the contents secure. I
used my case for preserving prints and
drawings while traveling.
And. talking of gifts, when children
travel a few well chosen presents will
keep them happy. It really takes very
little to amuse children. A box of
gifts to last through the days of ocean
voyage can be arranged that may make
all the difference between a pleasant
and a disagreeable trip to both mother
and child. Su< h a box was recently
got up for some children by a friend
of mine. The outside box, -of gener
ous proportions, was tied about with
a silk flag, for the youthful traveler.
particularly if he is a hoy. wains
to Haunt the Stars and stripes on ail
patriotic occasions. Each small box
put into the large one was numbered,
with directions as to when it was to
be opened and how its contents were
to be used. For instance, "Box No. 1"
contained peppermints to be opened
after the first meal on board. "Box
No. '2 had an exciting deck frame to
be opened the next afternoon. A
morning gift was a tablet and a sot
of colored (rayons. Another gift was
a set of bean bags made of blue linen
marked with the owner's initials. A
game of cards with the pictures of the
masterpieces in art was a helpful gift.
Aii outfit for making paper flowers
was a very suitable trift for the girl of
the party, and to one of the boyfl just
learning to toll the time a dollar watch
Older little people frequently pet
restless on lons trips. For them was
a box of candy made doubly sweet by
writing some little personal messages
and hwnorins sayings on bits of paper
and wrapping them around the bon
bons. And what child would not love
to receive a pretty boj containing a
fountain pen. a book of stamps, a few
special delivery stamps, postal cards
and paper wrappers? Little red leath
er record books would not come amiss
either, as the young traveler would
feel most important when making
notes of the trip. And what fun it
would be to read such notes written
by a child of an imaginative mind!
