That her advice N considered worth having is proved by the many letter which she receives asking information about tho tea room business.

"I he reason these women come tn, me, explain Miss l reeso, i primarily lscause if a woman can do nothing else she has (vrforco some knowledge of housekeeping and she naturally grasps that plank.

Miss Kiecse thinks that at least IS.OOo is necessary now, in addition to a tie-, 1 mendous nuiomit of unibition and en , durance to make a success of a tea room. I "This is made necessary llrst of all on account of the increased coal of food," she says; "secondly, because she must be located in a popular locality, not on a side street or higher up than one story, i Kor th accommodation she need she will have, to pay $250 a month unci tip. "In Western cities, notably Chicago, Toledo, Cleveland. iahiotiabl women do not mind Roinp; into the basement, but they will not do that in New York; they prefer the ground floor and for that ' ' rejson several tea rooms located in base- ' ments have not been successful. The 1 grill rooms in hotel do not apparently suffer from this feeling, but that i un doubtedly because, they are. attached to ithe lintels. "Again, wages of servants are higher than over before and for tea room service only the nicest girls can be employed. Wages in these place, if not actually ! determined by the amount of tips re ceived, are certainly Influenced by it, as they are everywhere. In the tea room near Fifth avenue I estimate that my waittesses receive a day in tip; in the MISS IDA department store tea rooms they get only I Iialf this amount, so that their wages are higher there, based on that fact and that the work is considerably harder. "A girl who gets $:. a week with her tips and her meal additional is doing , much better than the small business , woman, the castiier, typewriter, suop- girl.

"The tea room prices huve not gonp up ' materially since I commenced, eight years ago, but th price for food in the market. are practically double what they were nt that time, which add to the FREESE. difflcultie of making thocet.iblishments pay.

The Noila Konntaln the True Fountain of Youth, Accordion to I'rof. Mortfnsen - Ill Invention Ka.lty Made Recipe of the I'roen lOllxIr of Youth. Prof. Mortenseu of tho dairy depart ment of tho Iowa Btato Agricultural College ul Ames, la., has Invented a now frozen elixir of lifo which he calls la oto. When Prof. Mctclinikoff of the Pasteur Institute ut Paris published his hook on "Tho Prolongation of Life" Prof. Morten Hen got an idea. MotchnlkofT traced tho oitiso of old ago to tho putrefactive bao let in tliut make their home In tho )nt tines These bncterla throw off poisons which cue ill health, old ago and finally death. The way to dislodge them la to give them u dose of their own medicine. The lactio iicid bacteria which are found in sour milk produce an nold which is fatal to their poisonous relatives. The problem of putting off old uge In solved by sending an invading nrmv of Inctlo acid microbe Into the Intestines to drive out the putrefactive bacteria The sim plest way to do this is by drinking sour milk In certain districts or Bulgaria, where hoiir nulk i a regular article of diet, the people are said to live to nn old age not approached elsewhere. Hut people generally don't like to drink sour milk So Prof. Moitensen started to work out lus idea, which was to supply the lactic acid bacteria in a palatable form. At llrst he diluted the elixir of life with buttermilk flavored with fruit juices l-iter he decided to tint his lactic acid bieteria m cold storage, and market them in the form of Ice cream rather than us a drink Here wh the opportunity. An lc cream cone afloat in a sea of soda water has come to lie the great national drink of the Cnited Slate The substitution of lac to for ice cream cannot but icsult in n great improve ment in the health of the frequenter of the soda fountain. Piof. Mortensen be lieves Aside fiom being loaded with friendly bacteria, it contains es fat than ice creiim. which makes it more di gestible l.ncto contains a high amount of protein, the muscle building part, of the food It is more nourin'iing than sherbets and ice It is cheaper than the old style ice cream and not so easily I adulterated with gelatin or corn starch. The amount of lacto that may be eaten by any one in safety is limited only by the capacity of hi stomach or his pocket- 1 book. ' An experiment wa carried on at I Ames to see just how well lacto nu 'liked by the average person. Out of 1711 persons who sampled lacto 12S pro . uounced it very good. 37 good, fl fair and s poor. Conipntmg it with common J vanilla ire creom, 111 reported that they jprcferird lucto. 9 considered it equal j lo ice cream and 59 preferred ice cream. I Comparing lacto with sherbet, 123 pre ferred lacto. 30 preferred sherbet snd in considered lucto equal to sherbet. At the college creamery both lacto and Ice cream were made and sold at the same price lust summer. An average of eight davs sales showed that M.S of the sales were ot lacto. Lacto i made of loppered whole or skim milk, with the addition of eggs, i sugar, lemon and flavoring material ' It can lie mnde in a one gallon freezer ion the buck porch a eoy-ily as in tho i factory The family tecipe given by , Prof Mortensen is a follows, i Take a bottle of good fresh milk which hu not been heated and set it away in a temperature of from ft to 7f) degrees Fahrenheit until it curdles If it forms a j smooth solid curd without pinholes, If Ithe aroma is clean and pleasant and the flavor nice and creamy, it can lo used as a starter for a larger amount of pasteur ' ized whole or skim milk ' After thl second batch of milk has .curdled it should have a mild clean arid . flavor The curd must be thoroughly broken up by the pouring from one dish to aiiotjier until it is as thick and velvety 'as rich cream From thi "lacto milk" I lacto can be made by the following for- inula, which i sufficient for one gallon: l , quart lut'tn milk I i i-r. pounds sugar 3 egg 1 pint rhprry Juice or concentrated cherry sirup 1-1 pint lemon Juice Other fruit flavors ran bo ued instead of cherry n desired The yolks and white are beaten in separate containers.
