Where Hazel tad Filbert Huts Are Found in
Abundance Abroad.
Nuruna- ttms baa arrived, and a visit to the woods
assures us. says a correspondent of "The Newcastle
ChronicJa." that wild nuts this year are almost as
plentiful as blackberries. We do not turn them so
readily to account as the foreign peasants do. The*
i*lp them to England in quantities, and at the pres
ent time wild haxel nuts from France and Spain
are to be sees In the wholesale markets. In ths
old days crowds of village folk used to go out to
•ecurs the harvest of nuts that could be Lad for
the gathering. Of recent years the wild nut planta
tions have diminished tn area, and the cultivation
of giant filberts and cob nuts by commercial trult
gTowera, who raise them in tons and keep the mar
kets well supplied, has caused the wild nut of the
countryside to decline tn popularity. In Kent. Just
now. i*;* nut tretsa in me woods are loaded with
fruit. Never were tbey seen In greater pension.
All this is very remarkable. The wild fruits, such
as the caztl, the blackberry and the ciabapp.e.
abound. Vet roost of the cultivated fruit cioys
nave been a distinct failure this year. Muoh doubt
exists as to the conpect.cn between the hazel and
the nljeit- The latter la a variety of hazel, deriv
ing life name from "full beard." in reference to its
trilled husk, and In con.rid*«ttnct!on to the rioter
covering of the common hazel nut. In the Middle
Ages the hazel nut was utilized in the preparation
of a milk for coi.fect.or.s, m in«j sa.nt w«sv n>a.i
c v. almon now 's For centuries Ave.lino, 'a city
o. Naples, has been famous for iis p!antaticr« and
woods of hazel nuts, and enormous quantities are
rau-tu for txport from this pioaTic pit>u« e*^b
y«ar. Possibly there are more hazel nuts at this
Place than in any other epot in the world.
1 he Anglo-Saxons called the hazel the "cupnut."
tnelr word for cup being hazel, and knirru for nut.
1 he cupnut of earner times was exceedingly plenti
ful and popular. In the old wii-Jwoods and planta
tions countless numbers of haze' bushes are to be
found, in fall fruit, thcufh bearing evident signs of
a good a?e. :."o one car doubt tha: In the" pre
historic period when the now submerge! forests on
tjifc coast of Weft Somerset and those of Torbay in
Scuttieast Devon were elevated above the wat«r-
IWB the hazel trees grew wild In the woeds. and
yitifled th. '.r fruits In profusion fo neolithic man.
Ir! these submerged r.nr] sunken forests the remain*

Motel St, George,
Has recently published a booklet, printed by the American Bank Note Company. It v replete with photographs of tne pubUe earn
ridors and reception rooms and some of the private suites.
Mailed to any address upon request. x
Extracts from the booklet follow:
BROOBTLYN HEIGHTS is one of the most
attractive and the most accessible resi
dential sections of Brooklyn. It is built
up with ii;st-clas» city residences and numerous
botels and apartment houses, the most promi
nent of which is the Hotel St_ George. The lo
cation of the Hotel Su George, on giark. Hicks
and Pineapple Streets, the highest portion of
the city, is central and easily accessible from
all parts of Brooklyn and New York. The wools
Style of the building is of the most substantial
as well as the most modern type. Tht
Hotel is open on three streets. Is exposed to an
abundance of sunlight and air, and command!
an unobstructed view of New York harbor. Tbe
St George is three minutes from the Brooklyn
Bridge; twelve minutes from the City Hall.
New York; ten minutes from Pennsylvania An
nex and Fulton Ferry at fcot of Fulton Streat:
twenty minutes from Broadway and Wall
Street; thirty minutes from theatres *md shop
ping district. New York; twenty-two minutes
from Grand Central Depot, by subway. It is
more accessible to the business section of the
City than any uptov.n hotel in New York.
The §t- George devotes more space on the
ground floor to the comfort and use of its
guests than any other hotel in the city. This
fact a?one has produced a predominant home
like feature for which the St. G*orga is cele
A Modern Hotel.
It may be said truly that the St. George Is
positively modern in every detail. Steam is
u«ed in heating the building. The St. George is
lighted by electricity througho-t. Every room
Is connected by a long distance telephone to
a central switchboard in the oSce. Calls with
in the Hotel are made without charge. Outside
calls to any point are charged for at the tele
phone company's regular rates. Ask the op
erator for rates.
There are four Otts Hydraulic Elevators for
the u^e of guests at al! times.
Private bathrooms are attached to all the
euires of rooms and most of the single rooms.
As a matter of interest, there are 350 bath
rooms ir, the St. George — all thoroughly
equipped with modern fixtures.
Filtered refrigerated water may be conven
iently obtarjiad on each floor.
An important feature of the St. George, and
one that mupt strike the moat casual observer.
Is Its marvelous completeness. Indeed, it ia no
exasperation to say that it Is a complete-com
munity under one roof
The Dining Room.
A great deal of the popularity of the Hotel Is
undoubtedly due to the excellence of Its cui
sine and service The menus for dinner parties
and banquets are prepared end carried out
under the personal direction of the manage
ment. The high esteem in which the St-
George is held by tho c residing in Brooklyn
has Induced many to boW soda! functions at
the hotel during the season-
Guests renting rooms on the European plan
may be served tha table d'hote in the dining
room as follows:
Table d'hote:
Breakfast, 7 to 10 A. M., Site.
Luncheon. 12-30 to 2 P. M-, 50&
Dinner. 5:30 to 7:30 P. M.. $1.00.
$1.50 per day or $* per week.
A especial early breakfast will be prepared at
any hour for those wishing it before 7 A. M.. by
request at the office.
Freedom from Household Cares.
Worry is more a matter of temperament than
circumstances, but tew women burdened with
household cares escape it. The difficulty of ob
taining competent servants, the friction "below
I stairs," the confusion and discussion of house
j hold ways and means, ail disturb and worry
' those upon whom the smooth guidance of the
S horrid depends. To such the Hotel St. George
I offers a restful escape. Th» whole atmosphere
of the hot«! Is homelike and comfortable, and it
!s the constant aim of the management to pre
serve this attractive feature Ever, in the
smaller suites guests may enjoy much of the
privacy of their own home, and at the same
time be entirely Independent of household cares.
Every want is met by a corps of trained ser
vants. a.^4 the facilities of a big hotel are at
i conimarii day and night. Women visiting the
city alone will find the homelike aspect of the
Hotel St. G<?orsre especially graceful, and par
ticular attention is given to .such guerts. The
delightful location of the Hotel in the residen
tial portion of the city contributes to this pleas
ant, homelike character, affording a quiet stop
ping place for those who desire to run into town
Flemish and Grill Rooms.
The Flemish Room is delightfully quaint and
co.-y with Its pan^l'nt; of black oak and it.«
studded ceil'n-s. Rows of cartons old mugs
and stein' 5 adorn the walla, and little tables con
tribute to quiet sociability. The room 1= opt-T>
frf»m 7 A M. to 1 A. M.. and the service is a la
carte. The Grill Room affords every delicacy
and the cookins- is excellent. A competent chef
personally superintends the preparation of eai-h
dish. It is possible for the guest to select hi*
chop or chicken from the well stocked larder,
see It broiled exactly as his fancy dictates.
and a few minutes later receive it hot from the
grill. An early breakfast or a late after-theatre
supper may be obtained with wual promptness
and with the same appetizing perfection of de
Th* hoinelik" character of the HotH St.
George la one of its chief attractions and frits
Is due largely to th«» comfort and completeness
of its b»droom suite*. Open plumbing with
porcelain bathtubs, toilets and basins are spe
cial features of the Hotel's san'tary perfection.
A Barber Shop adjoins the Hotel, replete with
every modern comfort and convenient.
