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.

Lemon Cream is the name the white
dad drink dispenser in the soda de
partment calls this and it is really rich
milk flavored with lemon and cream.
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. Sweeten this mixture and
add enough cream to fill the glass to
the brim. If you enjoy spicy flavors
grate a trifle of nutmeg over this.
Lemonade made with strained honey
is wonderfully good and the same
smooth richness may be attained if you
use a plain, sweet syrup for sweetening
all your summer drinks. Dissolve two
parts of sugar in one part of water
and heat this until it simmers; coo) and
use in place of sugar.
Fineapple-ade is especially fine when
one has dined not wisely but too well.
Grate fresh pineapple and add lemon
.juice to it and sweeten with as much
powdered sugar as you have of both
fruits. Mix this and put a generous
quantity in each tall, thin tumbler you
plan to serve. Fill almost to' the top
with powdered ice and pass a bottle of
charged water fitted with a siphon to
each imbiber so that just the quantity
of charged water that is liked may be
added. The charged water and siphon
may be had from any druggist.

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
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
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
"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
