When the Preaident of The Tnited Statea goes ta

Now, as to the length of a good dinner. >a

?Tiarters of an hour As usual here, we run from

hour she left her houae until her retiirn home was
bat one hour and forty rainufs. This ia abanrd.

When you introduee a n?an lnto the aanetnary
of year own famUy it ? aupTKaed by a flctlon to
be the greateat compliment yoi ean pay him; but
do not be misled by tha, for there ls nothlng more
trying to the guest tban to be tbe one outaider.
A friend of nudb invariably refuaea aueh invita
tiona. "Why," said he. "my dinner at home ia
aufticiently good ? I am called out with my wife.?
both of us eompelled to don our beat attlre, order

A faaally whoae members are not partieularly ln

en a businew footing you B_cul_ dlce at your
club, and not infliet them on your famlly.
Twenty yeara ago there wer? not over three
obefa in prlvate families in this city. It to new
tbe exoeption not to flnd a man of fuahien keen
tng a flrst-class chef or a famoua eordon bleu. In
the laat six vears Swedisb women oooka have
come over here, and are excellent, and by aome
ssippoeed to be wtter than ohefa. No woman, in
my opinion, ean give aa finished a dinner aa a
man. There is always a aomething in the dinner
which haa eacnped her. It is like Oerman and
Italian opera-tbere is a flnisb to tbe Italian that
tbe Germans can never got. But Swedish cooks
deeerve spOi'ieJ mention: they are feallv wonder
ful?cleanllness it*elf. That is where tlie Frencb
ebef falls. He must have sculllcns tracking his
very footstops to keep things olean. while the
Swedish woman does> her work without making
dirt. Thoso womon got nearly as large wapes as
tbe m*n?$tiO a minth and a aeulllon mald. What
a eoctrast to living in France! I had the best
olief in Pau in IWi for $'25, and the sculllon re
celved $3 a month.
Tho Qtiostion is often asked : What is the differ
en<* in oxponse to a housohold between a chef or
a woman cook? This questiou is only learned by
experience which teaabt- me that with a woman,
mv butche'r's bill would be $250 to $17 S a month:
with a chef. IM5? to $300. Gmeer _ bill. wlth
a woman cook. say. $75; with a chef. $125. This
does not tneladt ontortainintr. Fof a dinner of
twelve or fotirteen one's markcting is e^sily aixtv
dollars. without tho foie gras or fruit. An Al
ohefs waces is ?100 a month: he takes 10 per
cent commission on the butcher, grocer, bakor
and mUkman's bill. If he does not get it directly.
bo got6 it ir.direetly. In other words, beMdes his
wagos. ho counts on those commissions. I spcak
now of the ablest and best; others not quite so
oapable take 5 per cent.
Always remember that tbe Frenchman is a
oreaturo of impulses. and works for two things,
glory and money. An every-day dinner wemes
him) but a dinner pjive, a special dinner, oh, this
ealls forth his talent, which shows th.it the
eustora somo have of calling in and employing a
chef to cook them a apeoial dinner ia correet. If
you do not keep a onef out of rewpect for your
purso or vonr health, it is a good plan to know
of an "nrtist" whom you can employ on spocial
oecasions. with tbe express agreement that he
suhmibs the liat of what he Wanta, and leta you
make the purchaeee, for these gentrr like to make
a little economie. which always beneflta thora
eelves, and such economie gives you poor material
for him to work upon, Lnstead of good.
How often have I heard a hostesa boast, "I
never give anv atrention to the detallfl of my din?
ner, 1 simply tell my butler how many people we
are to have." ln nine eases out of ten thia is
apparont in tho dinner. * Madame Fothtchild
who ha* always glven the boat. dlnners ih I*a-ls.
peraon.illv suoervises everything. The great
Puchess "of Suthorland, the Queen's friend. when
she entertained, inspeeted every arr_ngement prr
sonally horself. I daily comment to my MOR on
tbe perfoimanee of tbe previous day. No one,
eapeclally in thia countTy. ean aoenmpl _h great
re*ult6 without eiving time nnd attenti^n to (hetr*
details. No Frencb cook will take any t-.W-st
in blB work unlos* ho reoeives prsls* and criti
cism: but above all things. you muBt know bow
to critlcise. If he flnds y?u are able to anpreciit'4
his work when good, and oondemn it when bad,
he improves, and gives you somothing of value.
Now let ns treet of dlnners as given before tho
introdnction of chefa, and still preferred by tbe
maiority of people.
Tho best tolent with poor material may give ?
fair dinner, but if tho i_a*erial is poor, tbe dinner
wlll evidence it. For forty veara I have always
marketed myself and secured the respect of my
hutcber, letting him know tliat I knew aa much
if r.ot more than be did.
In solocting your shin of boof, remember thnt

those on corn moal. yellow fat. By the feet of
the bird vou akR tell its 3ge.
Tho blaok and red feathered fowls are always
preferred. Never take a gray fea'hered bird.

Oae of the noUble oountry-aeats just flnishsd
was reeeatly disoorered ia the wanderings of a
Trlbune reporter near Stamford, Conn. It is the
home of H. 0. Havtmeytr, of tha well-kaowa augar
nrm. The new vllla has maay notable companiona
nearby to inrtte oomparison, auch as the bouses
of James I. Raymoad, Henry R. Towne. Frank
Palmer aad James Barelay, at Stamford, and of E.
H. Johnsen, Mrs. MUbauk, Dr. Sheldon. R M.
Brnoe, K. C. Benediet aad othon ia the ricmlty
of Greenwkh. Claesed with these, Mr. Have
meyera houae ia, ia its aurrounding. aa well aa
Ite general effect aad arrangeuent, perhapa
the most lmpreaslTe it not tbe most costly.
It te more Uke a Newport oottage than any of thera.
By dillgent perauaaion the awner was induced to
walve his peraonal preferenre againat any put>
licity and allow the*plsre to he photorraphed and
deacribed far The Trlbune.
Tbe new villa* which will he the owner's per
manent summer and winter home, Ls on ihe jutting
brow of one of the high ridges of the rescion. 2S5
feet above tide-water, and ls only a little over a
mile from the Souad. Stamford statlon is two
railes to the eestward and Greenwioh is three miles
away in the west. The plaoe oomprlses about
ninety acres, of which flfty acres are in lawn and
meadow about the house, the rest belng in pasture,
on which eome e.xperiments in ralSlng flne horses,
cattle and Southdown sheep wUl be puraued. The
land was for 125 years in the Palmer and Quintard
families, and was only lately aoqulred from a sist/r
of John Quintard, of Brooklyn, though Mr. Have
meyer tried to get the property aeven years ago.
The latter llved for several yeara on Long Island,
for whose mosqultoes he has a profound respect,
also several years in Greenwich, so he has ohosen
his permanent home with his eyes opan.
The Btriklng features of tbe plaoe at a flrst ap
proach are the breeziness and aimpliolty ot the
.rreat curvlna dome of lawn, oomblned with an
offect of solidlty and permanenee which is given
bf the ample spreading proportions of the house
and stables, united by the great stone wall that
encireles the lawn. givinsr the place almost a feud.il
aspect, and forming an architectura! bond between
the two buildings. One nreds the full view of the
whole place to appreciate tlie value of tliis latter
feature. Tbe wall deserves more than pnssing
notice. Its* gatewaya are -'.uarded by maasive
rough atone towers, constructed af roiigh roek with
the llchens all on tnem. The whole wall is laid
with moss-grown rock, making the structure look
flfty yeara old Instod of one. The stone is care?
fully fitted ln hori/ontal layers up to a hci^ht of
about three feet, when the wall is flnlshed with
a coronal of tnpering jagged rocks set perpeii
dieularly^ making the wall five feet or more in
height. A feature that imme.liately enlists the
good-will of tlie travelling public is a BBiqM .Irink
ing-trough and fountiiin. aet in tlie wall in the
high way on the west brow of the hill. The
trough is cut from a great solid ttonc, set high
enough for BBttea ta drink without belng nn
checked, whlle II e whole is R-BTCd hy a great
arch of the rough, jagged rookwork of the wall,
forming one of tbe prettiest features of tbe place.
TTIE W-TKRIXO TROIGrH.
In kreping with thia, also, is the high," rounded
eurb of roekwork, the eimple crane, rone and
tiuoket, which raark the well on the lawn near
the house. Unlike many flna houacs, the structure
is not sraothered with trees, the splendid open
lawn giving full view of lt from tbe highway, and
even from the old Boatort post-road, a half-mile
away. Only a few more trees will be planted
and those on the westera slope. It was on the
24th of May, 18S9, that the grotind was ploughed
to prepare the foundations of the house, and in
June of this year the family took possession.
It is a thxee-story building, witii a length of
130 feet and depth of about flfty feet. the style
unlting "coloninr effects. high gablcs, 888.,
with tlie numeroua faeadea aud low, spreadinar
proportions of many old English country hoi:s"s.
It fsces Ihe south and the Sound. but the drive
sweeps up to a porte-eoehere on the northern frnnt |
facing tbe hichwtiy. Thls carrlage-wny ia buUt
of carefully choacn, rough roek gathered on the
place, covered with lichena, whlle in the veattbule
us presened a stone which, it is said, was trod on
by Washington W-BB it formed the thrcaho'd of
tha house that formerly occupled the giouaU.

also provided with bath-rooms and commanding

covered with Japanese napers, of subducd tone,
and the furnituro is ugat in structure, con
tributing much to the airiness of these spaclous,
well-lfgbted rooms. A large play-room is al
lotted for the chlldren to rule over. In the
thlrd story are other ned-rooms, so that over
a doien large sleeping-rooms are provided.
To descend the square-buiit, wimling oak atair

part of the house is to flnd rooms ln every
way a complement to the balance of the house, in
oratnees, comfort and eonvenier.ee. Tlie kitchen,

water drippings Into mlnute particlee by flne
slevra, thus u.ultiplying ita cooli.ii: power. Of
course, there are extensive, weU-stocked cellars.
A pumphouse at the springs, about a rcd from tho
house, insures n consfant Bupnly of tlie best
