Scientific Way to Sweeten It.
"I've done more lying about domestic
after dinner coffee than any other subject
Under heaven." said the mu at the club
ns be carefully balanced bin spoon on Ibt
edge of his demitasse, so that the half inch
cube of white togar sbonld juet touch the
surface of the coffee.
The man did not do this in preparation
for ponring brandy upon his sugar, for,
popular impression to the contrary not
withstanding, men nt dabs do not habitu
ally burn brandy with after dinner coffee.
His object in thus placing bis sugar in re
lation to his coffee was far more scientific,
being nothing more nor less than for the
purpose of bringing the. sugar in contact
with the highest and hottest portion of the
coffee, which portion, having dissolved
some cf the t-ujr and thus increased its
own specific gravity, should sink to the
bottom of the cup and make room for an
other portion of coffee, which in turn
should dissolve some of the sugar and like
wise sink. Thus the man managed quickly
to dissolve his sugar and to obtain a cup of
coffee equally sweet throughout.
nat the man bad to nay wss a pictur
esque expresiiion of the fact that after din
ner coffee in most households is a weak
and ghastly caricature of what it should
be, and a liquid to which the adjective
black cannot he applied in strict accord
with truth. The man might have goue on
to say a camber of other things about cof
fee as served in this town, whether in pri
vate houses or at restaurants and like
places of public entertainment. The truth
is that, although more millions of bags of
coffee are imported into Now York than
intoany other city in the world, this is not
a coffee drinking town. New Yorkers long
ago banished the good old English word
and thing, "coffee house," and in adopting
the French equivalent of the word they
have utterly failed to get back any sort of
equivalent to the thmir.
The very last drick t hfct a man calls for
in a New York enfe of the native order is
coffee, and the man who should order cof
fee in one of these misnamed resorts would
prohably repent of his temerity. There
arc genuine cafes in New York, but tbey
are confined chiefly to the central European
quarter of the east side, where men who
are not rich inexplicably find time to sin
coffee and lay ttos in the middle of the
Coffeo has a curiously wide range of
price in this town, l on may buy it, at one
cent a cup from the coffee, stands or at
twenty-five cecls n cup nfc restaurants
where one must rwy for cnrirrons appoint
merits, obsequious service, anil even the
view from trie windows.
It has been fmnd, ton, that. lV- quality
of coffee is nnt f.'i he iiicieii hy us price.
To ho sure tee ciunoi tret ood coffee at
one cent n cup, but, oa t!,e o: her liund, on?
cannot Ixj assured against Iwd coffee at
evm twenty-five cents a cup, sxud tin re are
east side cafes where t he coffee is perfect at
five cents a u;i. New York has become so
cosmopolitan that cne may dine in almost
any lausuac nnd hr.vc or.e'K cotTee served
accoruinp to the national custom of :tny
one of half .1 dozen countries.
On the whole, these best and cheapest
coffee is served in the Germnn and Vien
nese cafes of the cast side. Uctween Sec

where almost perfect coffee, with milk, is
served nt five cent a cur,. The coffee.

china cup along with enough hot. milk to
fill the cup exactly to the brim. The com
plexion of the compound is that of a dark
mulatto, and its flnvor is sweet and fresh.
In the best of these cafes a cup of poor
coffee is never served, and the demand is
continuous from morning to midnight.
The true Viennese coffeepot is a brazen
affair, so contrived that the water is forced
in vapor through finely powdered coffee
and condensed in a porcelain vessel fitted
as a jacket about t he metallic cone contain
ing the water. AH the parts are so ad
justed that, if instructions are followed,
perfect colfpe must result.
A few French restaurants serve cafe au
lait much as it is served in the crcmaries of
Paris. The waiter brings a big bowl, a long
handled spoon, three lumps of sugar and
two pitchers, one filled with black coffee
plentifully adulterated with chickory, the
other with an equal quantity of hot but not
boiled mils. When the two are poured to
gether the bowl is nearly filled with a gray
ish brown liquid, delicious to the taste and
mild enough for the most sensitive nerves.
Cafe au lait, French bread and good but
ter make a most wholesome and nourish
ing light breakfast.
Turkish coffee may be had in the so
called Arab quarter of Washington street.
When properly made it is extremely strong
and thick with grounds from loug boiling
over a spirit lamp. X he oriental custom
of offering a cup of coffee to shoppers in
the bazaars holds to some extent among
the Syrian merchants in w aslungton street-.
and should a stranger offer to pay for this
coffee his money would be firmly declined.
The coffee of the east side cafes is cood
and cheap because it is made with wise
economy from sound berries. It is stronger
and less adulterated than the cheap coffee
served at down town luncheons, because the
customers of the cast side cafes are habit
ual coffee drinkers, who take coffee, not
necessarily as part of a midday meal, but
aa a stimulant at all hoars of the day.
Poor coffee may be served year in and
year out at the luncheon places without
driving away uncritical customers, but no
east side cafe making any profession of de
cency could lower the quality of its coffee
without risking the loss of custom. New
A Marquis and a Mandolin.
The Marquise Lanza's name is often seen
in connection with the mandolin, an in
strument for which she has a great fond
ness. In an article which she recently con
tributed to the press on "Mandolin Play
ing for Women" she says that the man
dolin is so small and delicate that it ehouid
never be played without tho background
of an accompaniment. Most of the music
that is arranged for the mandolin has a
piano score attached. Then she adds:
"There is a quality in the sounds evoked
from the mandolin that can be drawn
from no other instrument. Its music ap
peals to the sympathies and touches the
Boul." New York Press.
