* R1... &.>'J 'Tin HOUSEHOLD TALKS Henrietta D. Grauel Summery Beverages In oldea days May WHS considered a (iroper month in which to make wines. Cowslip, dandelion and rhubarb wines all had h place in the cellar of the care ful housekeeper. To-day this trouble some brewing is all forgotten and simple fruit .juices, nnfermented and harmless, are found to be just as refreshing. The dispensing of summer beverages is a pretty form of hospitality easy to compass at a moment's notice and the list of cheering fascinating drinks is so long that all can find some that they can make without much trouble. As the amount of water exuded from the body is greater in hot weather than in cool, more liquids are required to maintain a right temperature. When this liquid contains citric or. similar fruit acid it is more cooling than clear water or alcoholic drinks. All fruits contain a variety of su gars, acids, flavors, potash and min erals that are easily assimilated and aid digestion. The more fruit .juice one can get into one's system the more one will be benefited. Lemonades:- —-Few beverages are bet ter than plain lemonade and it really seems an unwarrantable liberty to tam per with it. vet physicians say that when eggs are added to it that it is not only more satisfying but at once be comes a valuable nourishing food.

To two-thirds of a glass of ice-chilled milk add the white of an egg beaten until well fluffed anil containing the lemon .iuiee.

I HARRISBTTKG STAR-INDEPENDENT, THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 27, 1915. HIS Ji%MONEY |MGEOfeGEBABR Copyright, 191fi» by (ieorg« Birr McCutcheon. CONTINUED CHAPTER XXVI. I Change Garden Spots. I AWOKE one morning to find a long and—l was about to say in teresting—letter from the count ess! It was a very commonplace communication I found on the third or fourth rending. The sum and sub stance of its contents was the Informa tion that she was going to Virginia Hot Springs with the family for a month or two and that Loud Amber dale was to join them there. It ap peared that her father, being greatly overworked, was in need of a rest, and as the golf links at Hot Springs are especially designed to make it easy for rich men. his doctor had ordered him t>) that delightful resort. She hoped the rest would put him on his feet again. There was a page or so of drivel about Amberdale and what he expected to do at the N'ew York horse show, a few lines concerning Rose mary. and a brief, almost curt intima tjon that a glimpse or two of me would not be altogether displeasing'to her if I happened to be coming that way. It may lie regarded sis n strange eo incidence that I instructed Britton that very evening to see that my golf clubs were cleaned up and put into good shape for n little practice on a course near London, where I had been put up by an English author, and who was forever dingdonging at me to come out and let him "put it all over me." I went out and bought a new brassie to replace the one destroyed by the ex perimenting Rocksworth youth, and before I got through with il had a new putter, a niblick and a spoon, neither of which I needed, for the excellent reasou that 1 already possessed a half dozen of each. Keyed up to a high pitch of enthusi asm, 1 played golf for ten days and found my friend to be a fine sports man. I.ike all Englishmen, he took a beating gracefully, but gave me to un derstand that he had been having a good deal of trouble with rheumatism or neuritis in his right elbow. On the last day we played he succeeded in bringing me in two down, and I've never seen neuritis dispersed so quick ly as it was in his case. I remember distinctly that he complauied bitterly of the pain in his elbow when he start ed out and that he was as fit as a fid die at the eighteenth hole. He even went so far as to Implore me to stay over till the next sailing of the Maure tania. J But I took to the higb seas. Mr. I Poopendyke cabled to the Homestead j at Hot Springs for suitable accommo dations. I cannot when I had been so forehanded as all that, and I wonder what my secretary thought of j me. My habit is to procrastinate. I I almost forgot to mention a trifling i bit of news that came to me the day ! before sailing. IClsie Hazzard wrote in j great perturbation and at almost un feeling length to tell me that C'ouut J Tarnowsy had unearthed the supposed -1 ly mythical Hothhoefen treasure chests | and was reputed to have found gold j anr: precious jewels worth at least a ' million dollars. The accumulated prod | nets of a century's thievery! The hoard , of all tiie robber barons! Tamo way's! Strange to say. I did not writhe nor snarl with disappointment and rage. I took the news with a sang froid that almost killed poor Poopendyke. He never quite got over it. Nor was I especially disturbed or ir ritated by the telegram of condolence I I received on board ship from Tar- I nowsy himself. He could not resist the : temptation to gloat. I shall not repeat the message, for the simple reason that I do not wish to dignify it by putting j it irto permanent form. We were two days out when I suc ceeded in setting my mind at rest in ; respect to Aline. Countess Tarnowsy. I had not thought of it before, but I remembered all of a sudden that I held decided scruples against marrying a j divorced woman. Of course that sim plified matters. When one has precon f ceived notions about such matters they afford excellent material to fall back upon, even though he may have disregarded them after a fashion while unselfishly thinking of some one else. As I say. the recollection of this well defined though somewhat remorseless principle of mine had the effect of put ting my mind at rest in regard to the countess. Feeling as strougly as I did about marriage with divorcees, she be came an absolutely undesirable person so far as matrimony was concerned. I experienced a rather doubtful feeling of relief. It was not so hard to say to myself that I.ord Amberdale was wel j come to her. but it was very, very dif ! ficult to refrain from adding the un | amiable words "damn him." This rigid, puritanical principle of mine, however, did not declare against | the unrighteousness of failing in love with a divorcee. If I have by any chance announced ; earlier in this narrative that the val ley of the Donau is the garden spot of the world I must now ask you to ex cuse the ebullience of spirit that prompted the declaration. The Warm Springs valley of Virginia is infinitely more attractive to me. I arrived there early one bright No vember morning three days after land lng in .New voru. son will be ren- I dered unhappy. L fear, by the an. nouncement thnt 1 left Mr. Poopen | dyke behind. He preferred to visit nn | nunt lit New Roclleiie. and I felt that I he deserved a vacation. 1 Before leaving New York I had a rather unpleasant encounter with my publishers. It was in the nature of a luncheon at which I was led to believe that they still expected me to supply them with tlie manuscript of a novel at a very early date. They seemed consid erably put out when I bltndly inform | ed them that I had got no farther | along than the second char-tor. i "We have been counting on this book j of yours for .lanua:*y publication," said ; they. 1 1 tried to explain that the muse had 1 abandoned me in a most heartless i fashion. "But the public demands a story from j you."' said they. "What have you been doing all summerV | "Romancing." said-1. I 1 don't know just bow it came about. but the suggestion was made that I j put into narrative form the lively his j tory of my sojourn on the banks of the Danube, trusting implicitly lo the iiu ] agination yet leaving nothing to it. . "But it's all such blithering rot," i said I. I "So much the better." said they trl ! umphantly—even eagerly, i "I don't suppose that you. as publish ; ers. can appreciate the fact that an nu j thor may have a soul above skittles." : said I indignantly. "I cannot, I will j not. write p line about myself, gentle men. Not tli'it I consider the subject I sacred, but''— ! "Wait!" cried the junior member, his ; face aglow. "Wo appreciate the deli cacy of—er—your feelings. Mr. Smart. | but I have an idea, u splendid idea, it : solves the whole quest>n. Your seere- J tary is a most compt »°nt. capable young man and a genius i.tter a fush ! lon. I propose that lie write Vie story. We'll pay him a lump sum t'or the j work, put your name on the «ovcr. j and there you are. All you wilt :.are jto do is to edit his material. Hor/'s | thnt?" And si it onme to pnss thnt I took myself <.ff that evening for Hot Springs. secure in the thought that roopcndyk* would nttend to my liter ary estate far more capably than I could do It myself nnd that my labors later on would be pleasantly devoted to tht lazy task of editing, revising and deleting a tale already told. If you are luoky enough to obtain rooms In the Homestead looking out over the golf course, with the wonder ful November colorings in the hills and gaps beyond; over the casino, the ten uis courts and the lower le,vels of the fashionable playground, you may well say to yourself that all tile world is bright and sweet and full of hope. From my windows I could see far down the historic valley in the direc tion of Warm Springs, a hazy blue panorama wrapped iu the air of an In dian summer and redolent with the in cense of autumn. Britton reminded me that it was a grand morning for golf, and I was at once reminded that Britton is an ex cellent chap, whose opinions are al ways worth considering. So 1 started for the links, stopping first at the office of the hotel on my way out, ostensibly to complain about the absence of win dow screens, but in reality to glance over the register in quest of certain signatures. A brisk, oldish little man came up beside me and rather testily inquired why there were no matches in his room; also why the hot water was cold so much longer than usual that morning. He was not much of a man to look at. but I could not fail to note the obsequious manner in which the two clerks behind the desk looked at him. You couldn't possibly have discovered anything in their manner to remind you of hotel clerks you may have come to know in your travels. A half dozen boxes of matches were passed out to him in the twinkling of an eye, and I shudder to thlnlc what might have happened If there had been a hot water faucet handy, they were so eager to please. "Mr. Brewster gone out yet?" de manded this Important guest, pocket ing all of the matches. I could see at once that he was a very rich mnn. "I>ld he leave any message for me? He didn't? He was to let me know whether he could play golf with—eh? Playing with Logan, eh? Well, of all the— He knows I will not play with Logan. ■ See If Mr. Scott is in his room. Tell him I'd like to take taim on for eighteen holes this morning.'' He crossed to the news counter and glanced over the papers while a dusky bellboy shot off in quest of Mr. Scott. "They all hate to play with the old geezer," said one of the clerks—a young one, you may be sure—lowering his voice and his eyebrows at the same time. "He's the rottenest player In the world." "Who is he?" I Inquired, mildly In terested. "Jasper Tltua," was the reply. "The real old Jasper himself." Before I could recover from my sur prise the object of my curiosity ap proached the desk, his watch In his hand. ————R "ii MHJIH—mi'J The Star-Independent Makes It Possible for every reader to possess the first, authentic, authoritative work yet to issue from a responsible, reliable source, dealing with the subject of the gigantic struggle in Europe.
