I FOI'Sf IB U NAT REVEL ATI0NS OF A WIFE By ADELE Dicky at the Chafing Dish. "Don't forget the lemon juice, Dicky You haven't put it in yet." "Are you sure you haven't too much butter for that number of oysters?" "Let me put in the red pepper. You got too much in the last time." Dicky looked around at his tormen tors in exasperation. "if you say another word I'll pitch these oysters into the sink-" We were seated around my table in the dining- room, which Lillian Gale and I had arranged in the afternoon. The spring flowers in the old earthern jar which Dicky had brought from the kitchen in spite of my protests, really were very pretty in the center of the table. The piles of sandwiches which I had made looked extremely appetiz ing, flanked as they were with dishes of olives, and of the salted almonds Lillian and I had prepared with so much pains. Dicky stood at the head of the table, the chafing dish before him. It was connected to, one of the electric light sockets, and the water beneath the blazer was bubbling merrily. He held in his1 hand a large spoon, with which he was stirring some butter which he had put into the blazer. At his right, little Mrs. Lester watched the proceedings with much interest. Next to her Harry Under wood lolled indolently against the table, I came next, not having been able to escape from thi3 arrangement of seats any more than I had from his companionship during the evening. Mr. Lester sat upon my other side, while Mrs- Underwood, between Mr. Lester and Dicky, completed the cir cle. "Hush!" Harry Underwood lifted his. hand. "We forget that Dicky can .only cook these oysters properly when there is complete harmony in the cir cle. Who will lead in prayer?" I suppose my face reflected the dis aste I felt for his remark. Anything approaching irreverence displeases me intensely; for Lillian Gale quickly came to the rescue. j "Shut up, Harry," she said forcibly, it's inelegantly "Mrs. Graham isn't used to that barroom brand of conversa tion you are handing out." "All right; sweetie," her husband grinned provokingly at her across the table. i "Madge."' Dicky's voice was quick impatient. "Where's the oyster juice?" Katie's Fine Entrance. I looked at the dishes flanking the chafing dish- Butter Dicky had that in the chafing dish, stirring it. Lemon juice it was ready to his hand in a pet cut glass cup of mine.. The oysters drained and ready for cooking, were in a' large dish at his right, but the bowl RED SWA MERIDEN. SPECIAL THANKSGIVING EVE 5 ...

N W llrox'sl y GARRISON of oyster juice, which I had seen Katie drain with much care under Dicky's direction, was nowhere to be seen. I tbucheu the bell with a feeling of nervousness I could not conquer. I was afraid something might have hap pened to the oyster juice, but more than anything else I feared that Katie might do, or say when she came into the room and saw Frank Lester. She had promised to control herself, but I knew her impulsive temperament, and I trembled as I heard her foot steps. As she came into the room, Mrs. Underwood asked Mrs. Lester something about her baby, thus di verting her attention- I stole a glance at Frank Lester. He was bantering Dicky, seemingly oblivious to Katie's presence, but I noticed that his face was red- "Will you bring the oyster juice, please, , Katie?" I said quietly. I was proud of Kate in that moment Not a flicker of an eyelash, not a glance betrayed anything but the cor rect attitude of a well trained maid. She vanished without a word and re turned in a moment bearing the bowl of oyster juice. "Ah-h!" Harry Underwood heaved a deep sigh. "The country is saved. Dicky, I warn you that if you don't pull that oyster stunt pretty soon I shall begin on Mrs. Lester." Nobody paid any attention to him. however for Dicky had added the lem on juice to the butter, and was stir ring it with the air of a Druid per forming one of his rites. He finished the blending and then picked up the bowl of oyster juice and poured its contents slowly into the mixture already in the chafing dish, stirring carefully as he did so. When he had stirred it to his own satisfaction, and it was bubbling, he relaxed his intent look, and turning to us, said: "Who was kicking about the red pepper ? Do you really think I had too much in the last time " "That was only Harry, Dicky," Lil lian Gale said soothingly. "Fix it up the way you always do, only hurry, for we are all starving." "Why don't you begin on the sand wiches, then?" "No, Dickybird," Lillian returned with an affected air of martyrdom "Not a morsel shall pass our parched lips until you are ready to eat too Perhaps that will hurry him up a bit," she added with a wink to the rest of us. "Ready in a minute, now," said Dicky encouragingly, putting in the oysters after he had carefully seasoned the mixture in the chafing dish with salt, black pepper, paprika,, and just a dash of cayenne. "Are the hot dishes ready, Madge?" Madge's ''Rarebit Martyrdom" I touched the bell again for Katie and at a signal from me she brought the hot soup plates, the only suitable dishes I had in the apartment, and placed them before Dicky. Dicky put a liberal portion on each plate and Katie passed them to the guests. Then she passed around the crackers, and we all were "valiant trencher men" for several minutes. I had never eaten oysters prepared in that manner, and. I had to admit that Dicky was justified in his boasts to me of his culinary prowess. They were delicious, and the plates were quickly emptied. "More," said Harry Underwood la conically holding up his plate. "Down in front, Oliver Twist," re turned Dicky- 'Don't you know my rule yet? Only one helping of oysters for otherwise you wouldn't enjoy the rarebit. You will observe that the chafing dish is going. But it will be re turned again presently, and you can put in your time at those sandwiches, if anybody takes too many of 'em, I'll take the plates away." "Stingy, stingy," mocked little Mrs. Lester. 'Still the rarbit is worth it. I never u?ed to like them until I ate Mr. Graham's." Katie had removed the chafing dish and now she brought it back again and connected 'it with the electric light socket. While the water was coming to a boil, D.icky took up a cup into which the yolks of two eggs had been placed, and stirred slowly into it two teaspoonfuls of dry mustard, two of Worcestershire sauce, two scant ones of butter, a few drops of tabasco, a dash of cayenne, another of black pep per, and a liberal sprinkling of salt and paprika- These were the propor- tions for two pounds of cheese. Katie set at his elbow a bottle of ale which Dicky had uncorked in the af ternoon, so that it would be of the ex act flavor he wanted. He finished the blending the mixture in the cup, set it aside and put into the blazer a heap ing teaspoonful of butter. When it had : simmered he added the cheese. Then ! for a few minutes nobody spoke, for Dicky acted as if the settlement of the war depended upon his success in blending the melting cheese with the ale which he poured on from time to time almost drop by drop. As he picked up the cup containing the mixture he had prepared with such care I summoned Katie to bring some heated plates, for I knew the stuff was nearly done. As Dicky stirred the mixture in the cup into the mass in the chafing dish I tried to summon my courage, for I knew that I must eat some of Dicky's concoction. I have tried faithfully to like it for Dicky's sake, but I hate the very sight of it. CASTOR I A For Infants and Children.

DOROTHY DIX ON "BIRTH OF A NATION" "I am a film fan, but I never had the slightest conception of what could be done with the motion picture as an art until I saw 'The Birth of a Nation.' "I had considered the motion pic ture interesting, instructive, amusing, diverting, beautiful, spectacular; but I had believed that the silent drama never could touch the emotions deep ly. I had thought that to grip an audience, to melt it to tears with pathos, to thrill it with high heroic sentiment, required the spoken word and the magic of the human voice. " 'The Birth of a nation' disproves ihis theory. Here is a war play, the like of which never has been present ed on any stage before, that played upon the heart as upon a harp of a thousand strings; that worked the audience up into a perfect frenzy; that mingled pathos and humor, trag edy and glory; at which people wept and laughed, and yet not one word was spoken on the stage." Seats for the week's engagement are now selling at the Fox theater box of fice, which is open from 9 a. m. to 9:30 p. m. , PADEREWSKI AND . THE WORLD WAR No profession has been harder hit by the great European war than that of music; as if by a sweep of the hand music was swept from Europe the day war was declared.

Pad erewski, who is making a tour of this country this season under the direc tion of C. A. Ellis of Boston, was pe culiarly hard hit. The disarrangement of his plans for 1914-1915 and his great financial losses from the war were of least account to him. He had planned to come to America in Jan uary, 1915, and after thirty concerts to return for the summer to Australia, where he had hot been in ten' years. The Australian tour was banished with the declaration of war by England, but long before that Paderewski had given up all thought of playing in concert at all. His entire time was being given to helping the millions of suffering Poles who dwell in Prussian, Austrian and Russian Poland, where the war has raged most bitterly. REVIVED COMEDY AT LYCEUM THURSDAY A strong minded maid - from the country, connected with one of New York's ultra-fashioned families, taken on a slumming tour by college boys, forms the unique basis for the plot of the revived comedy, "The Rejuvena tion of Aunt Mary," which May Rob son will be seen in at the Lyceum, Thanksgiving day, matinee and night.

"It wasn't especially good water in the beginning," he said, "and of course it was lukewarm when we finally got it, but I can tell you it tasted Just about right. I never realized before what a wonderful thing water was. In fact I don't sup pose I ever gave it a thought. I had to go a hundred and forty miles into the desert to find out that good, fresh water, a thing I'd always taken for granted before, was really something to be pretty thankful for." You've Got to Take Some Things for Granted. Of course it is inevitable that we should take things for granted most of the time. You can't be thankful for all the good things of life all the time. But can't we stop once in a while and remember to be thankful for some of the accustomed things of life? This man's experience in the desert threw him forcibly into a new rela tionship with one of the accustomed things and he saw it from a new angle. MAUD ALLAN PLAYS IN KEENEY FEATURE i Maul Allan, the International dan suese, plays the leading role in the great romance, "The Rugmaker's Daughter," the feature film at Keeney's tonight and tomorrow. Another big photoplay for tonight is "The Re proach of Annesley," a Biograph three part drama adapted from Maxwell i Orav's famous novel of the same : name. The big special for Thanksgiving is perhaps the most sensational film ever shown in New Britain. It is a five part Vitagraph blue ribbon feature, j "The Man Who Couldn't Beat God." In this picturization Maurice Costello and other eminent stars in the film world are seen in important parts. On that day "The Rugmaker's Daughter" will again be shown. Other features will be the Essanay western comedy, "It Happened in Snakeville" and a Kleine-Edlson star attraction. Friday and Saturday, 'The Clue" with Blanche Sweet in the lead, will be shown- Werner's troupe of educated horses tops the vaudeville bill this week. ' It is a great act and is atracting general attention. There are some other good specialties on the bill. MARY MILES MINTER IN CHARMING PLAY "Emmy of Stork's Net," a five part picturization unfolding a story of the mountains, produced from the novel of the same title by J. Breckenridge Ellis, opens a two-day engagement at Fox's this afternoon. Not since Mary Miles Mlnter met with such sweeping success in the title role of "The Lit tlest Rebel," in which she starred with William Farnum, has she had a part so well fitted for her bewitching and entrancing personality, as the. little mountain girl. Augmenting the Mary Miles Minter feature are the latest chapter of "Neal of the Navy" and several single reel comedies. Miss Josephine Davis, the ragtime melody queen, will sing a new ar rangement of melodies that will be highly delightful and entertaining.

"If we were charged bo much a head for sunsets," says Stevenson, "or if God sent round a drum before the hawthorn came in flower, what a work we should make about their beauty." And again: "The attention which a wood fire demands," says Charles Dudley Warner, "is one of its beat recommendations. We value little that which costs us no trouble to maintain. If we had to keep the mn kindled up and going by private cor porate action or by act of congress, and to be taxed for the support of customs officers of solar heat, we, should prize it more than we do."
