TA MEMORABLE LITTLE DIN
ner party at the Cafe de Paris, on
the Avenue de l'Opera, not long ago,
the addroess of each guest was taken
and one of the really beautifully decorated
plates used in the game course was sent to
his apartment or hotel.
It was a pretty souvenir of the occasion,
as well as a costly present for the host. But
the idea was not new.
That fed existed as long ago as 1887, as I
can bear witness, for, while living in Parie,
in that year. I collected enough plates to
decorate my dining room in modest imita
tion of the well-known apartment in the
Chateau Royal, Fcntainblena. At the same
time I peopled the room with happy memo
ries that are refreshened every time I sit
down to carve my own steak or to dissect a
bird. And when the cares of daily toil
overburden my mind memory keeps
nothing so precious as the hours of
youthful folly, when the blood was
warm as Burgundy should be, and the cruel
steel of worry and care had not pierced the
heart. To recall those days in which every
young face was pretty and every smile was
answered by one in return, when an invita
tion to dinner meant a frolic, when dyspep
sia had not seized upon your vitale-ah!
surely there are delights!
Whatever means be employed for keeping
those golden days before us I welcome.
With every plate, a story! Into what a
pretty volume they might be thrown could
we write them as we enjoyed theml As for
n title-"Life at Twenty-five," . which
Robert Louis Stevenson once said he nearly
thought of using for a volume of his early
memoirs, would do, if that clever deamer
had no objection. He rejected the title, if
I remember, because, hie said, "one cannot
bhe twenty-five forever."
'J'hat's thavery issue I want to make.
Ho* and where did I secure this array of
porcelain?
It's a very simple story. We all have to
dine, but what a great difference in dinners.
Opinions vary as to the number at table
necessary to form a jolly party. Soms peo
ple affect only large dinners at Delmonico's,
or Sherry's, or Bignon's. or the Cafe Anglais.
'To them the number thirteen is the only
point at which the line is drawn. Frank
neas is one of my traits of character, and
I say without a blush that if there must be
more than two of us at table, I'd as lief
have thirteen as three. Plenty of sentiment,
yes; but no superstition. Of course, I speak
of the ideal, indelible and iris-hued feast.
On suech an ocansion you study the soul of
your companion as natural. In a good
dinner, to say nothing of wine, is truth;
and whether truth evolve vanity or sub
jective humility, the student of human
comedy will be entertained.
After such a delightful communion, send
for the maitre d'hotel, and, without senti
mnent buy two of the finest plates that have
appeared on the white linen between you
and your companion. Pay his price, which
I never have found excessive; and give him
the two addresses, with an extra franc. The
following morning each of you will have a
souvenir, and the memory of the occasion
will dwell in marry harmony with the visi
ble evidence thereof. Did you not possess
the virtuous proof of the actual event, it
might be recalled only as one of the de
lightful dreams that cross the opaque lines
of our lives known as sleep. Bet, no; the
recollection is real, must be so, for here is
the visible presence. The ulate has cost
from one franc to twenty, and and a very
little money buys a great many dishes.
In my case the collection grew steadily
during seven months. As all collectors
find, the taste improves. Experience
teaches. Specimens that had been very
precious when secured are ultimately cast
aside as inferior.
This is a fickle world.
When I came to transplant my porcelain
trophies from Paris to New York several
were broken, but what remained are suf
ficient to warm the cockles of my heart on
a despondent day.
A series of these recollections I wrote,
and some of them I published in the gay
capital under the title of "Tales in Porse.
lain," but I fear they would not find favor
in this climate. Our writers are very
harsh, and the marrow of some cold-.
blooded fish or lizard ancestor is yet in our
bones. The Tabasco sauce of genial femi
ninity is rarely served at American din
ners.
Alas, how few really excellent restaurants
we have in New York! You can count them
all on the fingers of one hand, and not need
the thumb. A dinner mnst be absolutely
correct in service and cooking. An error in
handling the wine will spoil everything. At
an otherwis perfect dinner I recently saw
Burgandy at exactly the proper tempera
ture, served in colored snauterne glasses. It
was done with an apology and explanation
that an accident had happened to the glass
ware of the house early in the evening, but
in the opinion of any high liver that wine
might just as well have been handed 'rmund
in tin nippers. The host was made thor
oughly ill at ease. though not a visible sign
of annoyance appeared at 'the board.
Where the proper glasses are not at hand
in which to serve a wine, better far omit it.
Notice the quaint plate to your right. It
is from the old waterside inn at Joinville
le-Pont, on the Marne, near Paris, a mem
orable place for a Sunday eveninc dininer.
La Tate Noire has been famous for 200
years. From the upper baloony its guests
watched the battle of Champney. But
that's not why this plate is precious to me.
With it is nassociated the story of Nanine,
in whose company painting was studied at
L'Ecole des Beaux Arts. bhe was a model,
the prettiest emodel that appeared (luring!
that year. And she tohi me that mine was
the only invitation to dinner that she had
accepted from a student who hadn't
achieved "an honorable mention." To'I
me, now, as I recasll my vanity, the sweetest
thing about the dinner and the incident
was that I believed her.
I'd give my right hand if I could believe
such words to-day!
You will notice that purple, pale blue or
grien and gold are the prevailing decorn
tive colors. i
The Saint Germain plate, in azure tints, c
comes from the pavilion of Louis XiV.,
from the very room in which that luxur- I
ious gentleman saw the light. Its centre is
mbellished with a wickercradle of antiiue
ut costly pattern, all done in light blue
iid gold. From the willdows at the side
Sthe table on which was served theb petit t
linor that this plate commemorates, youni II
,ouis could see the graves of the French
-inus at St. Denie, and the view, beautiful 1
a it wan, made him very weay. In the t
orner, by the far window, wnas h'l'iers'
eit, and in a suite of rooms belonging to b
he adjacent wing of the building, ocoupied
very suson by James Gordon Bennett, e
he president of the republic died.
But it is not of these facts that I think
lhen my eves greet the pretty blue and
old plate. A fair, bright face, witll azure
yes and a halo of golden hair site there a
nsbrined. bshe speaks English well, be d
ause she's an American girl. 'The alow of

and you will see that a stairway leads to
ithe topmost boughs, and that at convenient
nooks cozy little pavlllouns are hung like

never-to-bo-forgotton Sunday at boeaux.
Dplightful Bal3za, who wrote a sktech
about the place, was responsible
for that trip! The Suggestion was
made to one of the loveliest women this
couptry ever bore, and It an early hour of
the day we took a cab from the Uotel de
l'Athonoe to the far away railway station in
old Paris, We passed the little convent
that plays so large a part in Hugo's' "Les
Miserables," anti in about an hour the
orookedest railroad in France landed us at
Nleeaux. It was a lovely June day, and we
walked up the hill to the restaurant de
l'Arbre de Itobin+ot. A logo in the tree
had been secured by letter the day before.
Mlddle horses awaited us and we rode for
s three hours through the curious meadows
and the flower-embowered parks. Then we
dined. Our dinner came up in a basket
just as you see in the picture.
Far away to the southward stretched the
valley, mottled like a portulaoea bed with
brioht colored roofs and awnings. But it
isn't that scene that makes that placo so
denr to me. It is the sound of a voice that
is still, yet that sings to me across the gulf
of the grave noas it sang that lovely after
noon, so low, so rapturously plaintive that
the gentle sir of heaven lingered lovingly
among the waving leaflets as it passed.
But life is life, and death is death, and
we sing poly of the passing hour-the life
at twenty-five!
From grave to gay is but a thought. We
now surround a King Arthur's table in the
Louis XVI. room of the Cate de Paris.
I There's tile plate on which one of the
courses found place. It was a farewell din
ner that marked the leave-taking with lo
toe land. Nine devoted condjutors were
present, and the painted silk favor that lay
beside tmy plate represented a dainty maiden
tossing a glass over her shoulder into the
air. Underneath was the Sybaritic in;junc
tion: "Go on, break anything you wish."
It never occurred to me until this instant
that a commandment might have been in
c.uded in the thought of the witty Parisian
epigrammatist. But this favor was typical
"of the feast. We broke the bnck of the
night, and as the gray dawn came we
walked, as well ati we could, to the (are
'Saint Luzane, where was the tidal train
that carried me to Havre.
There's a pate Irom the Cafe Anglais
with no memory beyond one item in the
bill of a very ordinary dinner:
A an capon ..........................100f.
Twenty dollars for one chicken, no mat
m ter what its previous condition or sex, is
too much! The only revenge I ever perpe
trated was to help carry a broiled and man
gled corpse into that asfs from the' Opera
Comique fire, and to see that it was placed
atop the very table at which that act of
robbery was perpetrated. bince that May
night it has been known as "The Dead
Man's Table." If you go in and ask for it.
you'll get it (near the corner), but yonu'll
find that superstition is costly. When I
crossed the ocean subsequently with young
Rosenfeld and told hintm about the table, he
declared that he'd dine at it before he set
out for Monte Carlo. He also said, I re
member, that he'd play the 25 and red to
the limit. (The fire occurred on May 25,
and he explained that number 25, on the
roulette table, is a red square.)
One of the handsomest plates hung on the
line is that from the Restaurant Lyon d'Or,
in Rue Helder. It is a pretty place, a re
production of a French tavern of the six
teenth century. with an open court, in
which is a fountain of scented water. The
cooking used to be English. and there was
a flavor of cold Yorkshire pudding about
the house.
I haven't mentioned Bignon, or the Cafe
Meyer, at the corner of the Avenue de
Sevastopol; the Cafe Riche, where it is
literally impossible to dine alone; the Ls
doyen, on the Champs Elysees. with its
Russian dishes; the Restaurant Voltaire,
beside the Odeon theater; the Vefour, in
the Palais Royal, where all the formalities
of the last century are strictly adhered to;
or, best of all, the Foyot, Rue de Tounon,
at the gate of the Luxembourg, where is
the bast burgundy in Paris. When you ate
known, the pretty cashier will sit an hour
on the wine to have the temperature ex
actly right. I mann't forget the Cham
peaux, near the bourse, .its floor covered a
foot deep with sea pebbles. You have only
to imagine the roar of the surf to dine at
the Hotel de Paris, at Trouville, or Fras
oatti's, at Havre.
There's one of my own collection I must
not overlook. It is the beautiful nile-green
plate from the Cafe de Madrid, far out near
the Bois de Boulogne. Show me a plate
from there and 1'11 guarantee you a con
fession. This is a mere souvenir of the
Grand Prix, in my case, and of a dainty
breakfast at noon before the thrilling
Longohamps event took place. I never have
witnessed the great scene at that famous
house that accompanies most Sybaritic
dinners. Every cosmopolitan will under
stand that I refer to the course in which a
fair-skinned daughter of Eve is brought in
upon a gigantic silver platter. But the
memory of the Grand Prix of 1887 is enough
for me, and my blood tingles yet with the
thrill of joy I experienced as I saw the
winner with its green-capped jockey rush
past the finish line-I supposing it to be
Monarch, on which I stood to win
many times the price of my bill at the
Hotel de Madrid, when it was a stable com
panion, the mare Tenebreuse, an animal
that nobody knew to be in the hunt. Her
owner, a disagreeable and utterly useless
chap, called Aumont, had "fixed up" the
race, a la Guttenberg.
It is hard to check the flow of soul at a
good dinner, but this screed must stop.
'Take a final look at that plate with the
large, purple Romanesque T at its side.
The letter stands for Tortoni, as surely as
there's molasses in blackening. Two of us
were dining there in the second story of a
large building on the Boulevard des Ital
mens on a warm May evening. 1 remember
that the windows reached to the floor and I
gave upon a balcony. We had our table
moved so that it Itartly extended out upon
this airy perch. We had eaten and drank
heartily, and sat smoking over our coffee.
buddenly a cry, followed by shrieks-the
voices of women-from down the boule
vard.
The Opera Comnique was on fire! A mom
ent. aind we were in the street. As a French 4
wag afterward remarked to me, had we only
waited five minutes more we would have
escaped payment of our bill altogether, for
evwry person left the place. T''he incidents
that followed are beyond description. My i
companion led the rescuing party that 1
broke in an unused and forgotten door at
the rear of the stage, throuuh which most
of the ballet girls and stage workmen mas d
their escape. 'The door was unnoticed from
the inside. It is probable that a jiece of a
scenery was standing in front of it. T'he
newspaper instinct soon asserted itself and I
we secnred etlough interviews to makte a

we represented ihad two pages devoted to
the event the following morning. while tihe
London journals gave the terrible disaster ,
