SOME one recently wrote several formulas which may be safely followed
in the manufacture of talk at a dinner. They' included such^ observations
as: "You are eating very little," "Don't you care for salted nuts?" "Aren't
the flowers pretty?" and so on, none of them taxing the intelligence- of
the guests, while supplying the uninterrupted exchange of inanities' that some
people consider essential. \u25a0
Answers are neither expected nor regarded, which recalls the experiment
of a clever New York woman who once. decided to test her conclusion that
no one ever heard what any one else said, at a tea. She drifted into a
light din of chatter one afternoon, and to the first person she. greeted. after
her hostess she said cheerfully: '*I was found dead in my bed this morning.'.'
"How perfectly delightful!" was the answer she caught in passing.. To.the
next woman she repeated the startling information. "Really?" -replied _ the
friend, vaguely looking over her head. And these phrases, with • slight
variations, were the only responses she could elicit. >
This experience, however, should not detract from the value 'of the
quoted formulas, because usually at a dinner the person next one hears what
is said whether or not he answers intelligently. . *„ ;' . .
A certain clever San Francisco girl, who is much in demand as a dinner
guest has decided hereafter to confine herself to remarks on the nuts and
flowers They are always . safe, if not scintillating.' She was invited not
lone ago to meet a young German who was here for a few days on a tour
of the world and at "dinner was seated next to the guest of honor. He 'was
charming, and they talked of. many things, including literature. -. The :_ San
Francisco- girl had read much in German, and they discussed Schiller,
Xovalis and Jean Paul until the visitor felt politely impelled to drag in a
reference to American letters. ; ' \u0084" - '
"Probably your cleverest .-writer over here, he said, in his excellent
English "is Oliver Wendell Goldsmith." •_ '. ;\ '.
Benr* a perfect lady, the girl answered "Yes without a moments hesi
tation but she simply couldn't compliment him on his -knowledge of English
literature in return for his flattering surprise at her familiarity with German
classics t ', , • , •..."•
Mrs. Henry Doyle an

HAVEN ASSAILS
WATER ASSETS
Attorney for City Argues Divi
dends Are Not Property
of Spring Valley
\u25a0 \u25a0 . -
Assistant City Attorney . Thomas E.
Haven, in resuming his argument be
fore United States District Judge Far
rington In the controversy over, the
legality of -the Spring Valley-water
rates fi^ed by the city, devoted most
of the time yesterday to showing that
13.991.228 in dividends which "had; not
yet been turned over to the stockholde
rs were assets of these stock holders
and not of. the company. , ;<%
It is asserted ' by the city** lawyer
that, though the dividends • still ( re
main In the treasury of a.' corporation,
they, nevertheless, are the, moneys of
the stock holders.
Haven also directed the attention of;
the court, to the* fact that the company
had included in Its ; estimate of the
value of its assets a great deal of prop
erty which was t. no longer, used. - An
niustratlon of this was the case of the
first Crystal; springs \u25a0 dam, which? "was
subsequently abandoned, - and a second
dam built, the first one: now being used
as a roadway across the center of the
lake. ;
Haven will resume his argument. this
morning and probably continue allday
tomorrow.
