Don't say ti, your opponent on the
Brat tee. "I am afrtid I shan't be able
to give you a game." or "I am so
frightened of playing a great swell
Like you." This kind of modesty,
however genuine, imposes upon no
body. Don't decline to take your
proper allowance of strokes. It's not
tair on your adversary, who will get
• o pleasure or glory out of beating
you, as he probably will do. whereas
you will be able to boast abominably
of a chance victory over him. If yon
have a particularly cantankerous
member of your club put him instant
ly upon your committee. He will
probably be flattered, fall into the
trap and be muzzled forever more.

An Italian dinner combination is one
of Brussels sprouts served in a circle
of mashed turnips with slices of boiled
beets arranged on top of the turnip
and some small oblongs of fried bread
arranged around the sides as a garnish.
The dish should be well seasoned.
