PERFECT SERVICE AT DINING

There is nothing prettier or more
graceful than any perfect service
given at the dining table. I recall a
most hospitable home where I used
to be invited to dine. The father did
the carving and serving of the meat
and potatoes; Cue mother attended to
the extra vegetables, and the nine-year-old
daughter served the butter
from a beautiful old silver butter
dish, the kind having room under
neath the plate for a generous piece
of ice so to the very last the butter
was hard and no one was obliged to
leave the table for a second helping.
This little daughter took great pride
in molding it In fancy shapes, so that
it might be attractive and easily
Thi3 kind of service means respon
sibility, which adds much to the en
joyment of the food. When the soup
is finished the place plate is now re
moved with the soup plate. A little
might be said of this place plate. It
is as beautiful a plate as one can af
ford, which is placed on the table at
the, beginning of the meal, when

openings. Serve with French dress

together, and the coffee then poured
at the table. At any time the cock
tail or soup, or both, may be omitted
for the evcry-day simple meal. In
many homes the soup course is mado
luncheon instead cf dinner.
No matter how simple the meal,
the food should be carefully selected,
well cooked and served. Certainly
guests appreciate a home where they
are taken in as members of the
family and where a great, deal ot
cstra effort and worry on the part
of the hostess is not in evidence. A
wtrm handshake and friendly feel

is more appreciated by most, people
than an elaborate meal served by a
tired, nervous hostess who spends
her timo in the kitchen preparing
the meal rather than enjoying her
guests. However, do not reserve the
kindest words and sweetest smiles for

Two Kinds of Snobs.
An interesting sense history is that
of the word snob, a term of obscure
origin. In Its earliest use. In 1S71, mean
ing a shoemaker or cobbler. Now
thero is a distinction between the Eng
lish and the American use of snob a
distinction due to the Influence of aris
tocratic as compared with democratic
tradltious. An English snob Is a man
who falls short of the perfect aristo
crat through a taint of democratic vul
garity. An American snob Is a man
who falts short of the perfect demo

For a few moments neither spoke,
but as the girl's color deepened with
her exertions, Jeffery groaned.

Suddenly, without warning, one of
the ours snapped off Just aheve the
spoon. The boat swung around and
snipped a quantity of water In the
trough of the sea.
The color died from the girl's face,
but she made no sound beyond a
stifled little cry. Using the remain
ing oar as a paddle and working
swiftly, shs finally succeeded in
bringing the boat about.
"June, I can not stand it! Give it
to me!" cried Jeffery, his voice sharp
with command, as he reached out Ms
hand for the oar.
June looked at his anguished face,
his white, shaking hands, which al

swept through her and she laughed.
Lifting her face ur into the wind,
she felt like some wild creature de

loose and whipped about her face ar-1
shoulders. Jeffrey razed at her be
