of it, and you dare not ask. You
dare not quote your doctor's man
date. Nobody quotes anybody
else's mandates to Mrs. Belmont.
She and her household abide only
by her own. '
There is at the 'carving table a
servant who carves.' There issues
from the butler's pantry front
time to time a servant bearing
dishes toythe servant who serves
you. There are only you and she
for dinner when she dines thus
"simply," but the servants, by in
accurate and cursory count who
appear during the first five or six
courses are nine.
By the time the third course is
completed, you have had quite
enough and are eager to go on a
tour of inspection. But when
dining "simply," you do not
.leave Mrs. Belmont's table in less
than two hours and a half.
Congratulating yourself on
getting away with a fair showing
of every course, including the fix
ings which go with the game,
fish, soup, and anchovy, you feel
fairly confident of being able to
do credit to a light salad, Then
along comes a platter and a brand
new servant behind it, laden with
breasts of wild duck, sufficient in
themselves for a dinner! You
take your breast and muss it up.
Then you reflect a moment, while
the salad is removed and the
oriental ice cream is brought
forth, on the futility of fortunes
collossally vast. How irksome it
must be to be always thinking up
ways tp get away with an income
so big it is unweildly. You take
during the dinner, the disappoint
ments therein indicated and the
wishes unfulfilled. And you, say
to yourself: "Is it really such a
very fine thing to be so awfully,
awfully rich?"
