The hostess lived on the shore of an
Inland lake. Oh. yes; "Mr. Mma.
Merrl" w-as asked to come at all.
Well, the whole this waa ao delight
ful, ao delightful, ao possible to nearly
every one. that we mil found oursolves
asking: "Why haven't we donj It be
fore?" As with almost everything;,
there must be a leader, aome one who
realize josslbllltloa and makea them
realities. In thla case the hostess had
lived for years on this self same a pot,
had reftularly gone to the seashore for
the bathing and it was only because
the family errheqner had been struck
by the financial panic that the sum
mer was being passed at home. It's
la 111 wind that blows do one any
pood, and there Is more than one
person who Is grateful that the
"Blacks" had to remain at home, for
there hare been a number of affairs
Just as pk'&gant as the one herein
At four o'clock, writer suits were
donned and under the protection of
automobile coats the run to the beach
was made. After a jolly splash and
an hour spent on the broad piazza the
wen came out from town and there
was a regular beach supper served
with all the comforts of home close at
A huge driftwood Are cooked the
potatoes Just to the ripht turn and a
real Gypsy kettle boiled the corn.
Sawhorses with boards on top made
the table and the cloth was white pa
per with the cutest napkins and rings
of paper, each with a souvenir in
side. The guests went in raptures
over the dltihes I means the plates
which were of pasteboard, each
with dainty painted flowers for deco
ration. The hostess said they came
In sets ell packed In one bo.
As there have been several reajsts
for menus for outdoor suppers I am
going to tell exactly what we had.
First, there was a canteloup cut In
half by the man who was dubbed "the
knight of the knife:" then there were
sandwiches of minced him mixed with
mayonnaise and chopped pickle,
sandnlihes of sliced chicken and
plain raisin brown bread sandwiches;
deviled epus and potato salad gar
nished with beets, bottle of olives.
Iced lea (the Ice brought from the
house), finger and white cookies and
d-llilous little frr5ted chocolate
rakes. The corn and potatoes cooked
ter the fire made the heavy portion
of the repast- For the flnala there
was a huge watermelon, and after
wards a iiiarkhin&llow roast over the
dying beach fire. Kverr one decbyed
that they had learned a lesson by
learning to appreciate what was with
in their reach, and the hontesa re
ceived a vote of thanks fur the pleas

letters of gold and. of course, golden
yellow will be the color scheme

the table centerpiece there should be
50 roses, preferably Marshael Nells;
the candles of yellow In brass holders.
Cilt clippers make charming souve

may be wrapped In gilt paper, the
cake frosted with yellow icing (mad
from the yolk of eggs) and the tee
cream frozen In rings. New Tork Ice
cream Is a deep yellow and should be
used. Serve orange frappe in a
punch bowl wreathed with yellow. If
the young' people who assist are
gowned In yellow It will add greatly
to the scenic effect.
In way of gift on such an occasion
gold pieces are In order. Cowers and
any dainty remembrance, for, of
course, quantities of elaborate thing

Our Cities Adopting Corto Habit
of Latin America.

Established In European Coun
Along the Potomac.
Washington. Corso is a word des
tined to become well known and popu
lar In the United Btate during the
coming years. The Idea of the corso
I old, but the application of the word
nd the development that will take
place around It are new, especially as
pplicd to the United State.
The corso is Italian by origin, al
though the social recreation represent
ed by It seems to have arisen sponta
neously In the mind of all Latins. In
Italian corso mean a course, as In
English a race course or a broad street
along which horses would be run for
amnsetrynt or sport. Naturally peo
ple would gather to watch the public
exhibition or contest, and naturally,
also, these meetings would be repeat
ed as Interest In them extended. Frob
sbly such gatherings have taken place
In Naples, Home and Florence since
the days of the early Romans. At any
rate to watch whatever display might
be made became long ago a social
function attended by all people of all
classes who enjoyed the healthful
pleasure cf being out cf door. In
time the contest itself was subor
dinated to the simple diversion of reg
ular gatherings for riding, driving,
walking, conversation and acquain
tanceship. In later years there was
added by private munificence of pub
lic appropriation the attraction of
music, and to-day the corso In Italy Is
not unlike what we call an afternoon
popular promenade concert.
In Spain, too, the same custom is ob
served, but there It is called a paseo,
an Interesting difference as corso
would signify "to run," while paseo is
a more leisurely walk. The paseo is
one of the most charming pastimes in
Spanish cities. About twice a week,
in the afternoon, the entire populace.
It would seem, gathers along some
shady avenue, near a pretty park, for
social recreation. Carriages drive
slowly back and forth, those on foot
stroll carelessly up and down, bowing
to their acquaintances as they pass
Ths Paseo de Colon, Lima, Peru.
each other, while along the sidewalk
are seals for those who prefer them,
and occasionally small tables are
placed at interval at which light re
freshment may be served.
In Latin America where such cus
tom are perpetuated the paseo is part
of the regular life of almost every
town south of the Rio Crande. In
many of the larger cities and national
capitals It Is a fcighly developed social
function and la some, owing undoubt
edly to the Influence of the Italian
who carries with him the significant
words of his speech, the pwsseo
has become or is becoming the
corso. In Huenos Aires, for In
stance, no place offers such good
opIKtftuuttles to observe the charac
teristics of that side of metropolitan
life as the fashionable corso near Pal
ermo park. In the City of Mexico
the Faseo de la Reforms offers on a
gala day a picture of national charac
teristic seldom excelled In any city
la Santiago the Alameda de Ins lie.
Itrlss, or the Mill of Santa I.m U. is
gay with the life and display of the
capital. Havana has for generation
en celebrated for the afternoon ren
dezvous on the Maleoon or the Faseo
de klarll (the Fredo). In the recon
structed Klo de Janeiro particular
pMlu were tskxa to arrange for a
beautiful promenade f.tcti'g on the
bay; here a pavilion has b-en erected
In which concerts will be given duriug
The corso, therefore. Is thoroughly
established in the habits of 1-atln
America and it is a commendable
move that the cttiei of the I nited
States are introducing such a pleasant
feature iuto their crowded and hurried
In Washington there hits been Inau
gurated a corso very closely resem
bling thue Just mentioned. On the
bauk of the Potomac and overlooked
by the lofty Washington monument It
has been arrtnged to fslve concerts
