not let it boil and serve it.
Many persons like iced tea, coffee
nnil chocolate, but there are old-
fashioned women, not a few, who
cling to the belief that nothing cools
them, nothing rests and stimulates
them so quickly, as a hot cup of well
brewed tea. Well brewed that is
not boiled nor simmered nor stewed.
Everything about a cup of tea is ini
portant, from tho tea itself selected
from picked varieties, either Formo
sa, Oolong, Hyson or tho beat En
glish breakfast, from tho water
freshly drawn and quickly boiled, to
the hot teapot in which the leaves
are thrown and tho exact quantity of
water poured over them. Five to
seven minutes is long enough to
steep tea. Then serve it in a pretty
cup and saucer. Ry all means have
a dainty teapot. There are so many
of these to bo found in the Japanese
shops and bought for a song that

An average waltz takes one over
or about three-quarters of a mile; a
square dance makes you cover half a
mile, and a galop equals a good mile
at a run too. Count up for yourself
how much tho girl with a well-filled
program traverses in an evening.
Twenty dances is the average you
know. Of these, about twelve are
waltzes. There, at once, is nine
miles. Three galops and she has
done twelve miles. Five other dances
at a half a mile apiece, which is
hardly a fairly big estimate, brings
her to close upon fifteen miles, to say
nothing of the intermission stroll in
the garden and the trips to the dress
ing room to renovate one's gown or
complexion. Philadelphia Press.

In New Mexico the land of all lands where "it is alwajs afternoon,"
m il d:ivn ni thu rule, not the exception: and no other nook lu New-
Mexico has so delightful a climate at all seasons of the ear an Las Vegas
Hot Springs. From November to April scarcely a day passes during
which tho sun does not shine brilliantly and continuously. During tbe
summer months, when lower countries are sweltering in tho heat, there is
tho same genial warmth and glow without tho enervating effect et f exces
sive humidity. The average mid day winter temperature is from CO to
00 degrees Fahrenheit. In summer the highest tlightor tlio thermometer
rarely exceeds 80 degrees at noon, and the avenge for that hour is only
7 0. Tho altitude (7,000 feel above the sea), tho picturesque valley, the
high, .ino covered mountains, tho even temperature, and warm, dry air,
combine to make this a favorite resort for tourists and an ideal place for
Las Vegas Hot Springs is located on tho suotlieastern blopeof the San
t.t Fe 'range of tho Itocky mountains, six miles from iho thrifty city of Las
Vug-is. There aro upward of forty hot and cold springs, tho water from
tliAit'st of them being conducted in pipes lo a largo and handsome bath
house of modern construction. Almost all forms of chronic disease yield
to the curative effects of these wonderful waters. It is not claimed nor
expected that everybody will bo made well. It is confidently asserted
that where there is anything left to build upon good results almost always
follow a thorough course of treatment at the Hot Springs, and some re
markable cures have occurred. Persons who have failed to receive relief
elsewhere for rheumatism, catarrh, lung trouble and diseases of the blood
are invited to try the great New Mexico sanitarium. Skilled physicians
are always in attendance.
A branch line of tho Atchison, Topeka Si Santa Fe railroad connects
the city with tho springs. Five daily passonger trains each way render it
easy of access from Las Vegas. Telegraph aud telephone lines give ad
ditional communication with the outsido world.
Jut the chief feature of the place, asjdo from its pre-eminence as a
resort for invalids, is the Montkzuma Ho el, a commodious and massive
structure of 6tone, crowning a slight emienco near the station. It may
be doubted by those who know nothing n of western push and enterprise
but here, in tho very heart of old-Spain-in-ne'w-America, is tho finest wat
ering place hotel west of the Alleghenies. Perhaps there are a few others
that are larger they are not many. Certainly none aro more satisfying
to tho eye or more restful to the tired, dusty, worn-out traveler. Large,
handsomo rooms, a fine cuisine, a commanding location and a careful cater
ing to tho wants of all guests make tho Montezuma hotel peculiarly suita
ble as a stopping placo for transcontinental tourists via the Santa le route
and for all classes of rest, pleasure and health seekers the country over.
