THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1884.
f t gin Pia. The Origin of a Once Despised but Now Popular Drink. "On a Margin. ' The most charming feature about the Juniper club in New York, was a hanging garden covering its roof, -where its members delighted to sit in pleasant weather under a canopy of silk, to smoke, drink and extol the jolly Juniper age in which they lived. Some of these informal gatherings amid the rhododendrons, palms and orange trees that waved in the breeze of that lofty height were remarkably brilliant in many ways. Bright, gen ial, successful young men, with brains as well as millions, assembled there, and many clever words were coined and stories milled. At one corner of this beautiful place screened from all intrusion by a double line of fragrant, blooming orchis, sat a small group of men on one of the prettiest autumn nights the moon ever shone on. Every member of the party could draw a check for a mil lion save one, and he was the guest and lion of the passing hour. He sat gracefully in a great easy chair, not directly facing the table, nor yet so far away but that he could reach a quaint liquor glass of irridescent hues that alternately stood thereon or rested at his lips. He was comparatively poor, though he probably had handled more money than anybody in his presence. But he had seen the world loved wine and good company, and never distrusted anybody. He rarely smoked in public, because it could not be done gracefully. The party was drinking chartreusse and brandy and discussin a first-night performance Irom which they had re turned within an hour. It was the opening" play of the new season. Opin ion differed very much regarding the author's merits, the stage mounting of fhft nipf.e. and the coniDrehension oi the actors. When they had exhausted the subject of the night, a dashing voune yachtsman sang a dainty little French melody that he learned from a peasant girl at Biarritz, another mem ber of the party told a story with m nlimsiv. and all drank to the V V - v j life that hurried past. Ultimately, everybody at the table was , more or less hea-fid at least all except Tom Eay. Me was cool, contented and unnusheu. An idea occurred to member of the party. He called waiter, and when he stood beside the table, turned to Tom Kay and said: "I say. dear old tellow, invent us a new drink. "Great idea," said another. "Make this night historical.' "The resources of the Juniper wine cellars are at your service. You have only to say the word." continued the nrst speaker. "It is not ea3y to grant the request you make of me, replied lom Kay. "I will think over it, and send you a receipt." "No ; now an inspiration." "Very weli, if you insist ;" and Tom Eay beckoned the waiter to approach, excused himself that he might hold a brief whispered consultation with him after which he resumed his seat. An interval of three minutes passed, at the end of which the waiter returned with a large pale green glass bottle in a cooler and a half-dozen phials of club soda. All labels had been re moved, and the curiosity grew at this attempt at mystery. "The condition is that nobody asks any questions till every glas3 is drained." "Agreed !" said all in one voice. The cosmopolitan poured out the limpid liquid from the flagon until it stood an inch deep in each of the six tall, fragile glasses. Then at a sig nal, the attendant whisked the corks out of the soda bottle3 and dashed their contents, smoking "with excess ive coldness, into the neat spirits. The glasses sparkled, and the bubbles danced about their rims. The distri bution of the potions about the small, circular table was made in a moment, but before a single person liad laid hold of his prize, Tom Kay said : "Remember, Fve never tasted this myself. It is exactly what you asked for an inspiration, an improvisation. Now !" Every glass was drained, but what a variety of countenances were to be seen about that table ! No two faces expressed the same verdict. "Soapsuds," said one. "Beastly P exclaimed another. "Whew !' ventured another. "Excellent I" commented Tom Ray, calmly but decisively. His opinion, though given on his own decoction, was accepter as im partial and conclusive. "What i3 it ?" asked one of the se verest censors more respectfully. Tom Kay replied solemnly, "Plain soda and the juice of the juniper berry " "Gin?" all exclaimed with a- gasp. Thev had never tasted a common drink. "Certainly, gin what could be more closely associated with the name of this wonderful club ?" "But it's made of varlets," stam mered the banker. "By mistaken tradition, yes, answered Tom Kay ; "but whenever the Juniper club leads in an mnova- tion, all New lork will follow, mis drink can be made the craze of the town within a week. "But it isn't good." "That doesu't matter in the slight est. If the Juniper club indorses it, it will go," rejoined Tom Kay, m re good naturedly, as the criticism grew more keen. "What a lark," broke in the yachts- ..Till i 1 1 T man. "iu astonisn every oar x strike to-morrow, by asking for this drink. But I say, old boy, christen this new internal irrigator. "Yes, give it a name. Tom Kay took up two bottles of soda, and crashing them into the ice cooler, exclaimed : "Gin Fiz !" A Darling. A group of five girls entered the street car bound for the park ; They were all young and evidently belong ed to families of wealth and culture that is intellectual culture as they conversed well. Each carried a very elaborately decorated lunch basket ; and each was attired in a very be coming spring suit. Doubtless they too, were going to the park tor a spring picnic. They seemed very happy and amiable until the car stopped again, this time letting in a pale faced girl of about eleven and a sick boy of four. These children were shabbily dressed, and upon tneir faces were looks of distress mingled with some expectancy. Were they, too, on their way to the park liie gentleman thought so ; so did the girls, for he heard one of them say with a look of disdain : "I suppose those ragamuffins are on an excursion, too." "I shouldn't want to leave my door if I had to look like that Would vou?" This from another girl. "No, indeed! But there's no ac counting for tastes. I think there otifht to be a special line of cars for the lower classes. A 1 tins conversation went on m a low tone, but the gentleman had heard it. Had the child, too ? He glanced at the pale face and saw tears ierS glistening in. t-io J-"vu j looked at the group of finely dressed j girls who moved as far from the pie-j beians as the car would allow. He was angry. He longed . to tell them they were vain and heartless, as they drew their costly trappings closer about them, as if fearing to contact with poverty's children. Just then an exclamation: "Why, there is Nettie! Wonder where she is goini?" caused him to look out upon the corner where a sweet-faced young girl sto id beckoning to the car-driver. When she entered the car she was warmly greeted by the five, and they made room tor her beside tneni. They were profuse in their exclama tions and questions. "Where are you going assed one. "Oh, what lovely flowersl Who are they for?" questioned another. "I'm on my way to Uelie uiarKs. She's sick, you know, and the flowers, are for ber." She answered both questions, and then, glencing toward the door of the car she saw the pale girl looking waistfully at her. She smiled at the child, a tender look beaming from . , ... ber beautiful eyes; and tnen iorgetting that she, too, wore a handsome velvet skirt and costly iacket, and that her shapely hands were covered with well-fitting gloves, sue lerc ner seat and crosssed over to the little one. She laid one hand caressingly on the bov's thin cheek as she asked interest edly of his sister. "The little boy is sick, is he not? And he is your brother, I am sure; he clings so to you." It seems hard for the little girl to answer, but finally she said: "Yes, miss, he is sick. Freddy never has been well. Yes, miss, he is my brother. We are going to the park to see if it won't make Freddy heifer' "T am olnd vou are Groins:," the vouner eirl replied, in a low voice, meant for no-one's ears except those nf tli a ftbiW addressed. "I feel sure it will do him good; it is lovely there, with the snrine: flowers all in bloom. But where is your lunch? You ought to have a lunch after so long a drive Over the little girl's face came a flush. "Yes, miss, mebbe we ought to, fivn "RYprMv,K Mice; but vou see, we v w - didn't have any lunch to bring. Tim he's our brother he saved these pennies purpose so as Freddy could ride to the nark and back. I gues3 raebby Freddy will for get about be in r hnntrrv when he sets to the "ij r beautiful park." 'Were there tears in the lovely girl's eves?' Ye3. there certainly were; and very soon she asked the girl where they lived, and wrote the address down in a tablet, which she took from a beaded bag upon her arm. After riding a few biockB the pretty girl left the car' but she had not left the little ones comfortless, xiair a bonquet of violets and hyacinths was i clasped in the sister's hand, while the sick boy, with a radiant face, held in his band a precious package, irom which he helped himself now and tnen, saying to nis sister m a juuimu- whisper: "She said he could eat 'em all every one when we got to the park. What made her so sweet and good to us? Sne didn't call us ragamuffins and wasn't afraid to have her dress touch ours, and she called me fa dear, she did. What made her?" And Sue whispered back; "I guess it's cause she's beautiful as well as her clothes beautiful inside, you know.' A Valuable Dor. The Pierce City Eninire gives the following as a full grown fact. It was certainly a very intelligent dog: 'R. J. Alexander's little boy Kobbie, had a very remarkable escape from a dreadful accident yesterday. Eobbie and Georgie Purdy were out riding their ponies, and while returning home at a brisk trot, just as they turn ed the corner at "Abe's" blacksmith shop Robbie's saddle turned and he fell to the ground, his foot hanging in the stirrup "Sport," his dog, who always runs before the pony, as soon as he saw Kobbie down made a spnug at the pony's head, caught the bridle rem with his teeth, and checked the pony up until Robbie got clear. The dog was dragged until his hold broke loose, when he stopped a moment till his little friend got up, and then ran after the pony, driving him home. In a moment June mounted the pony and Sport led the way to where Robbie was. It happened luckily the pony did not kick or step on him, and he was but slightly hurt on the left side of his head where he struck and dragged on the ground. Winona's Weddinjsf. Gainesville (Fia.)

The appliances used are extremely simple, being merely a quantity of shot and a shal low, square trough, with which, and an adjustable "right angle," squares of various sizes may be made When the Fauare of a given circle is re quired, the latter is cut in some hard material. The circle thus formed is placed on a level slab and carefully filled with small shot none of which nrfi allowed to be above the others. Then the shot are placed m the shal low trough and the -'right angle" adjusted till they exactly fill the sqiure formed by the "right angle" and the corner of the trough This i3 the square of the circle into which the shot were first measured. When the square of an irregular area is re required the process is somewhat sim ilar.
