Yesterday's program as & genuine
Tray service for breakfast, or
luncheon even, is not at all uncommon
in many homes. This has been
brought about by the greater freedom
in the heme at the early meal of the
day. There are no more hard and fast
rules that every member of the fam
ily, regardless of occupation or condi
tions, must appear at the breakfast
table at the same time, but Instead,
the breakfasts have grown to be so
simple in some families, consisting of
fruit, cereal, coffee and rolls, or some
times entirely ot fruit, that it is very
easy for each adult member of the
family to get his or her own breakfast
when ready for it.
It is not an uncommon occurrence
where the husband lunches down-town
and with the children at school or
with ths governess, that the mother
much prefers the dainty service of a
tray in her room to Eitting down alone
at the dining room table.
Tray service has become so beauti
ful and the custom cf having one's
breakfast or even luncheon served in
"my lady's boadcir" so universal, that
it seems quite worth while to consider
the daintiness of this service. There
is many a woman or girl who has her
own little apartment and gets her own
simple breakfast, luncheon and per
haps dinner occasionally. If she loves
dain'y service she does not eat off the
window sill, kitchen table nor yet In
the pantry. Neither does she like to
sit down to a large dining table alone.
There is a d?3ciatioii about that which
is indescribable, but this tray can be
so dainty and neat and inviting, and
she can carry it where she wills, that
much cf the loneliness of eating alone
vanishes when the tray can be placed
cn a table in one's favorite corner
near an easy chair.
Women are r.Qt the only ones who
enjoy tray service. There are many
busy men who have" a simple, attrac
tive lun-jh served cn a tray in their
office, where they can enjoy this mid
day meal in quiet, besides saving
much valuable time when their mind
is at its best for business and man
agement of great affairs. Then later
in the day, when their thinking capac-
change for mother and father cn Sun
day morning to have their breakfasts
served on trays in the quiet of their
room. If you have never tried this
resting at the beginning of the day. do
so -and be convinced that once In a
while at least It is a "life saver."
KIND TO CHOOSE.
There are trays and trays. When
cne looks at them in the 6hops, it
seems that it would be difficult to
make a choice, they are of such var
iety of material, shapes and sizes. I
have found for general purposes that
the oblong tray with handles, allows
better' room for placing the dishes,
and the handles are necessary in car
rying from one room to another. It
should be lar?e enough to hold plate.
rolls, individual butter, cup and sau

coffee or tea pot. If a percolator is
used, that is better set on a small
The tray may be of the finest Sher
field plate, aluminum, silver plated, or
a very pretty cretonne or print tray
covered with glass and framed in
beautiful mahogany or wicker with
brass handles. Whatever the design
or material, the tray should always
be covered with a doily. Where the
saving of washing is a necessity, use
the lacey paper ones which can hard
ly be told from the real linen. Have
the napkins a generous size to pro
tect the clothing; then with the ahov.j
service mentioned have salt and pep

If fruit is servett, have it fresh, per
fect and not too much of it; or a cer
eal with berries and a pitcher ot
cream, with a roll or toast, and coffee
with hot milk, especially when acid
fruits are eaten. Eggs in so many
ways may be served if one cares for
them for breakfast. A few breakfast
and luncheon menus might prove sug
gestive for this most comfortable tray
service in the homes for both old and
