Borden's Platform
Here is a summary of Mr. Borden's platform, I will not increase
the British preference. I will try to
turn aa much Canadian trade into
British channels as I can, but I
would not hefp to build a factory at
Yorkshire at the expense of one in
Caned*. I will compel the Canadian consumer to buy hiB manufactured articles in his own protected country at a price that will enable the enriched manufacturer to
build or buy mills costing millions
of dollars in the United Slates, but
I will not allow the Canadian farmer
to sell his wheat to those mills even
if they offer aa good or better price
than Briiain offers. I will not allow theCanadian consumer to buy
his foodstuffs for less the amount of
the tariff tnan he now pays. All this
because to do so would endanger tbe
integrity of the British empire.
Differs From Other Shows

The border towns of British Columbia have joined hands with their
American sisters in boosting for an
open Columbia river irom "the
mountains to the sea." If tbe engineers have made no mistake, and it
is probable that they have not, the
upper Columbia can be made navigable for steamers of medium
draught at comparatively small
coat, and wben it co-nes to dividing
the cost between the two governments the expense to each would be
so small tbat it would not bear the
semblance of a burden. If completed as planned tbe river would
be navigable from the Pacific to
Revelstoke, B.C. That such a highway would in a great measure solve
the transportation question for eastern Washington and southern British Columbia is unquestioned. It
would put an end for all time to
high freight rates, as the steamers
would come in direct competition
witb tbe various lines of railway. It
would also open transportation facilities to a considerable extent of
country that bas none save by tbe
slow-moving wagons, propelled by
horses or mules. Such an avenue
would be a blessing to tbe people of
tbe entire region of Washington east
of the Cascades; but the benefita
would largely accrue to fruitgrowers,
as tbat method of transportation
would enable them not only a
cheaper method of reaching a market, but would permit them to place
their fruit on tbe market in better
condition tban by wagon transportation, which is the prevalent method in large fruitgrowing regions, and
particularly in Stevens, Lincoln,
Ferry and Okanogan counties.
But this method of transportation
will also be an important factor in
mine development, as the Columbia
meanders for hundreds of miles
through or in proximity to wonderfully rich mining sections which are
now wore or less remote from rail
Viewed from the standpoint of
interest to the miner, the fruitgrower, tbe farmer, the business
man, or the citizen, the opening of
the great Columbia river for its entire length would be a blessing
wbich no otlier enterprise could confer lo an equal extent on the inhabitants of Washington, Oregon
and southern British Columbia.—

' get rid of moles, and if you have

every other method at hand this
: lady got a can of lye and opened up

teaspoonful of the powder. Cover it
over and Mr. Mule only makes
one more trip. He gets the poisoii-
| ons powder on his feet, licks it off
with his tongue and dies from Ihe
effect. This simple and inexpensive method will do the business.

The Prodigal's Return
Money  can  do  most  tilings,  even
in the matter of furnishing a large
house  with competent  servants,  and
by   six   o'clock   Vera   had   contrived
for the machine to run u little more
smoothly.    At any  rate  she  was  in
a   position  now  to  provide  Fenwick"
with something   in   the   shape of a
respectable  dinner    on    his    return
from town.
It was about a quarter to eight
when he put in an appearance, and
for the first time for some days he
changed into evening dress for the
chief meal of the day. He appeared
. to be morose and savage as he had
lieen in the morning. He answered
Vera's questions curtly, so that she
fell back upon herself and ate her
soup in .silence. And yet, though
Fenwick was so quiet, it seemed to
Vera that he was regarding her with
a deep distrust, so that she found I
herself flushing under his gaze. He
put his spoon down presently, and
pointed with his hand to Vera's
swollen fingers.
"What  have   you   got  there?"   he
demanded.    "How did you do that?"
"I burnt it," Vera stammered.   "It
was an accident,"
"Well, I don't suppose you burnt
it on purpose," Fenwick growled.
"What I asked you was how you
did it."
"I repeat it wus an accident,"
Vera said, coldly. "I burnt my fingers in such a way "
"Yes, and you are not the flrst
woman who has burnt her fingers
interfering with things that don't
concern her. I insist upon knowing
exactly how that accident happened."
Vera turned a cold, contemptuous
face to her companion; she began to
understand now that his suspicions
were aroused. It came back to her
now vividly enough that she had
dropped the hot sovereign on the
floor and had not replaced it. lt
was just, possible that Fenwick had
gone into the little room and bad
missed the sovereign from the neat
layer of coins on the top of the box.
And then another dreadful thought
came . to her—supposing that the
drugged man had not recovered from
the effects of his dose by the time
Fenwick had returned? There was
nothing for it now but to take refuge behind un assumed indignation
and decline to answer offensive questions put in that tone of voice. Vera
was still debating as to the most
contemptuous reply when the dining
room door opened and one of the
newly arrived servants onnounced
Mr. Blossett.
Fenwick rose to his feet and an
uiiiiiistiikeuble oath escaped bis lips.
All the same lie forced a kind of
sickly smile to his face as a big man
with an exceedingly red face and an
exceedingly offensive swaggering
manner, come into the dining room.
The stranger was quite well dressed,
nothing about his garments offended
the eye or outraged good taste, yet
all the same the man bad "bounder"
written ull over him in large letters.
His impudent red face, his aggressively waxed moustache, the easy
familiarity of his manner, caused
Veru to shrink within herself, though
she could have been gruteful for the
diversion which his appearance had
a "Weli. Fenwick, my buck!" be
cried. "You didn't expect that I
should accept your invitation quite
so promptly, but I happen to be
knocking around here and I thought
I'd drop in nnd join you in your
chop. Tbis is your daughter, I suppose? Glad tn make your acquaintance, miss. I was told there were
many beauties at Merton Grange,
but 1 find there is one more than 1
Vera merely bowed ill reply. The
man was so frankly, hopelessly,
utterly vulgar that her uppermost
feeling was one of omusement. She
could see that Fenwick was terribly
annoyed, though for some reason he

agreeable to Illossett.
"Sit down," he said. "Ring the
bell, and we will get nnother cover
laid. I don't suppose yuu mind missing the soup."
"I have been in the soup too often
to cure Hbout it," Blossett laughed.
"To tell the truth we hnd such a
warm time last night that solid food
and myself are nnt on speaking terms
just now. Here, waiter, fill me a
tumbler of champngne. I duresay
when I huve got that down my lyek
I shnll be able to pay my proper attentions to this young lady."
Fenwick made no reply; he cut
savagely nt his lish ns if he were
passing the knife over the throat of
the intruder. Meanwhile the stranger rattled on, doubtless under the
impression that lie was making himself exceedingly agreeable, Vera sat
there watching the scene with a certain sense of amusement. She was
still a little pnle und unsteady, still
doubtful ns to the amount of infor-

mation that Fenwick hnd gleuiied ns
to her movements that afternoon.
She would be glad to get away presently and try to ascertain for herself whether the drugged mun had
recovered or not. Meanwhile, there I
wus no occasion for her to talk, us
the intruder was quite ablfc to carry
on nil the necessary converBution.
"This is mighty line tipple," he
said. "Wniter, give me another tumbler of champngne. In my chequer-
er career 1 don't often run up agninst

is, it makes one tnlk too fust, and

"Fool!" Fenwick burst out. His
face wes livid with rage, his eyes
were shot, with pnssionate anger.
"Fool! can't you be silent? Don't
you see thnt there is one here who
is outside "
"Beg pardon," Blossett snid, unsteadily. "I thought, the young wo-
man knew all about it. Lord, with
her dainty face and her nristocrntic
nir, whnt a bonnet she'd make.
Wouldn't she look nice passing off
ns the daughter of the old military

game of enrds? You know what I
mean—the same game thut old Jim
and his wife used to play."
"Be silent!" thundered Fenwick in
a tone thnt at lust seemed to pene-
trute the thick skull of his compan-
ion. "My—my daughter knows nothing of these things."
Blos?"tt stammered something incoherent, his manner became more
sullen, and long before dinner was
completed it wns evident that he hnd
hnd fnr more wine than was good
for him.
"If you will excuse me, I will leave
you," Vern snid coldly. "1 do not
cure for any dessert or coffee to-
"Perhaps vou hnd better go," Fenwick said. "1 will take care tbat this
thing does not happen ngnin."
But Vera had already left the room.
She wns still consumed with nnxiety
nnd desired to know more of whnt
hnd happened to the man whom Venner bad drugged. She did not dare
venture as fnr as the little room, for
feur tliat suspicious eyes should be
watching her. It was just possible
that Fenwick hnd given his satellites
a nint to note her movements. Therefore, all she could do was to sit in
the drawing room with the door
open. Some of the men began to
pi'ss presently, and after e little time
with a sight of relief, Vera caught
sight of the one upon whom the trick
of the snuff was played. He seemed
nil right, ns fnr ns she could judge
and the girl begun to breathe a little
more freely.
As she sat there in the silence,
watching and waiting, she suw Fen
wick und his companion emerge from
the dining room nnd cross the hull
in the direction of tlie billinrd room.;
Blossett was still talking lightly and!
incoherently; he leant on the arm of]
his host und obviously the support
wus necessnry. Vera had never before seen n drunken mnn under the
snme roof ns herself nnd her soul
revolted at the sight. How much
longer wns this going on. she won-
dred? For the present sh" hnd only
to possess herself in pntience nnd
hope for the best. She wns longing
now fnr something like action. The
silence nnd stillness of the bouse oppressed her, she would hnve likfd to
lie up nnd doing something.
The silence wus broken presently
by the sound of nngry voices proceeding from the billinrd room. Half a
dozen men seemed to be talking nt
once—words flouted to Vern's ears;
then suddenly the-noise censed us if
somebody hnd clapped n lid on the
-meeting. Veru guessed exnetly whnt
had hupiM'iied. The billiard room
door had been closed for fear of the
servants hearing what was going on.
It wns just possible thnt behind those
closed doors the mystery thut hnd so
puzzled Vern wns being unfolded.
She recollected thnt between the billiard room and the dining room was
a fairly Inrge conservatory opening
on either side into the apartments
in question. It wns just possible
thnt Fenwick and his compnnions
might hnve overlooked the conserva.
tory. At any rate Vera determined
to take ndvantnge nf the chnnce.
The conservatory wns full of palms
nnd plants nnd flowers, behind which
it wns possible for the girl to hide
and listen to all thnt was going on.
Vera fully understood   the   danger
was standing by the side of the table
laying down the law about something, while the rest were scattered
about the room.
"Why should 1 do it?" Fenwick
wns suying. "Why should I trust a
man like you? You come down tonight on the moBt important errand,
well knowing the risks you are running, and you start by getting drunk
at the dinner table."
"1 wasn't drunk," Blossett said,
sullenly. "As to the girl, why, I
naturally expected "
"Who gave.you the right, to ex.
pect?" Fenwick demnnded. "Couldn't
you see at a glance that she knew
nothing about it. Another word and
you would have betrnyed the whole
thing. You cen stay here ull night
und tnlk if you like, but you nre not
going to hnve that parcel to take
away to London with you. In your
present condition you would be in
the hands of the police before morning."
"But I haven't got a cent," Blossett snid. "I hndn't enough in my
pocket to puy my cab fare from Canterbury; and don't you try on any
of your games with me, .because I
am not the sort of a man to stand
thern. You are a fine lot of workmen I know, but tliere isn't one of

at nil. Who nmongst you could say
the snme thing?"
"Oh, you are right enough so long

"But, all the same, 1 shnll not trust

Loaf Like
[F your flour is of
the right quality,
it ought to produce uniformly
good bread. When the loaf
comes out of the oven it

every loaf should be light, plump and should
expand over the top of the pan. Bread

After nil has been snid about indigestion und stomaoh trouble, there is
only one wny to get a reul cure. The
stomach must be mude strong enough
to do its own work. Indigestion disappears when the stomach has been
made strong enough to digest ordinary plain food. This strength cull
only be given the stomach through
the tonic treatment supplied by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, wliich enrich
the blood, strengthens the nerves and
thus enables the stomach to perform
the duties which nature intended it 1
should. In every neighborhood youj
can find people who have been cured
of indigestion or other stomach troubles after a fair use of Dr. Willinms'
Pink Pills, and this is the best proof
that they are the one remedy to successfully do this. Mr. D. B. McLean,
Sterling, N.S., says-.—"For a couple
of years I suffered very much from
indigestion with most of the accompanying painful symptoms. As a result I became very much run down,
and ns the medicines I tried did not
give me any relief I grew melancholy
und unhappy, and felt as though my
constitution was breaking down.
Quite accidently my attention was
called to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
and I decided to try them, and I am
happy to say that they effected a
complete cure, and made my stomach as strong as ever it had been. I
am glad to say a tew words in praise
of the medicine that cured me, and
I hope my experience will benefit
some other sufferer."

American Speakers and writers Say
We Must Gtt Reciprocity Now
or Give it up Forever
"Now or never" is the slogan of
the Reciprocity protagonist in the
United States. President Taft expressed this belief in his famous
speech to the New York newspapermen when he said: "The forces which
ure nt work in England and in Can-
adu to separate her liy u Chinese wall
from the United States, and to make
her pan of an imperial commercial
band reaching from England around
the world to England agnin by a
system of preferential tariffs, will derive an impetus from the rejection of
this treaty, and if we would have
reciprocity with all the advantages
that 1 have described, and that I
earnestly and sincerely believe will
follow its adoption, we must tnke it
up now, or give it up forever."
Since President Taft has spoken
many others have reiterated his
words. The Boston Commercial Bulletin declares:—
"As Canada is undoubtedly destined to make as big industrial strides
in the future as In the past decade,
it is evident that with the lapse of
time she will become less and less
desirious of renewing negotiations
with the United States. The time,
therefore, has come for us to strike.
Shall we let the opportunity pass?"
Commenting on this utterance The
American Economist observes:—
"This is another way of saying that
if we are going to cheat Canada in
a Free Trade reciprocity dicker we
had best do it right now, because,
if we wait too long, Canada will get
her eyes open and refuse to be cheated. Is tliis fair or decent or is it
merely a demonstration of Yankee
smartness? The Canadians are not
fools. They have developed their industries under a Protective tariff and
now have an industrial future. The
time for us to strike passed long
Going further west we find The
Minneapolis Journal echoing Mr.
Taft's New York speech in this
fashion:— "
"The Taft policy spells not only
North American commercial union,
but also the doom of the British imperialistic unity. Too late, provided
Congress acts, the British are awakening to the value of the prize they
so fatuously rejected. Too late, if
Congress rises to a level of this, perhaps the greatest piece of statesmanship effected by an American President since Thomas Jefferson annexed
the West. Today England is our
best customer, and Canada our third
best. But our foreign trade wanes,
and that of Canada grows. If we
push Canada into England's arms,
the trade arrangements between the
two will tend more and more to shut
us out."

FRIDAY, AUGUST 11,  1911
When the farmers' delegation
visited Ottawa last December, Mr.
S. C. Parker, of King's county, N.S.,
stated tbe case of the Nova Scotia
lruitgrowers in this brief but trenchant manner: "I have the honor to
speak for the fruit-growing interests
of Nova Scotia. Our industry is
rapidly growing; with increasing
production we see the importance of
as wide a distribution as possible.
We are convinced tbat a fair meas-
use of reciprocal trade with our
neighbor to the south would be of
immense advantage to all our horticultural ii.Uresis." If reciprocity
would be advantageous to the Nova
Scotia fruitgrower, should not the
Hritish Columbia grower derive the
Bume measure of benefit from it?
The Ontario Liberal association
expresses the following views on tbe
reciprocity agreement: "We seem to
have arrived at one of those epochs
when the masses all over the world
find it necessary for their well-being
to curtail the special privileges ot
the classes. In England a powerful
democratic movement in that direction is in progress, while in the United States the people have turned
in anger Upon the manifold evils
resulting from an exceedingly high
tariff in force for half a century.
Here in Canada a widespread agitation for freer trade with the States
has arisen in the east and west. It
is said tbe Laurier administration
should have ignored it, because the
country in general, and the west in
particular, are already enjoying a
hi((h degree of prosperity. Those
who argue in this manner forget
that, so far as governments can, a
government like ours must not only
afford the people an opportunity ol'
reaching a high level of prosperity,
but must ensure tbem the means of
enjoying the very highest attainable; otherwise it may expect uproar
and tumult witb a falling away of
loyalty to existing institutions. No
impartial man familiar with the
west doubts that ihe settler's lot
Would be improved by freer commercial access to Minneapolis, and
Chicago. Sir John Macdonald used
to say lo Eastern Canada, in the
days when he favored reciprocity in
iiaiiiriil products, Hut if it bail two
strings to its bow in, plane of one,
a free American market us well as
the free British market, ll would nf
necessity lie considerably belter off.
What was and is sell-evident of lhat
suction ol Uie Dominion s, from the
nature of the case, still more true,
if possible, of western Canada, isolated by a huge stretch of barren
territory from lbe cities, towus and
factories of the east, and lying
alongside lhe American west for
over one thousand miles. Now,
whether we in Canada like it or uol,
tht Republican parly, and the Dem
ocrats who control the new house of
representatives, have made up their
minds to reduce the cost of living

Great London Shows, which exhibit ut
Grand Forks August lfl.
The pageant will leave the grounds
promptly at 10 o'clock day of the
show, and follow a line of march to
be announced later. First will come
the world famous Dublin Grays, the

The band wagons, tliats and other
paraphernalia will follow with 400
well groomed, well matched dapple
gray horses. The stock is all in the

When  the  Liver    and    Kidneys Are
Overworked    and    Break Down
Get them Right by Using
In the spring the human system is
loaded with poisons which huve accumulated as a result of artificial
winter life. There has heen too
much breathing of poisoned indoor
air, too little outdoor exercise, too
much eating of heavy indigestible
food, especially too much meat and
too little fruit.
The liver and kidneys struggle to
overcome this condition, but the tnsk
is too great for them and they get
sluggish and torpid, fail in their
work and often become diseased themselves.
They must have help such as is
given them by the use of Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills. There is no great
mystery of how these pills purify the
blood and take away the cause of
tired, spring feelings, backaches,
headaches, bodily pains or derangements of the digestive system.
If the blood is to be purified the
liver and kidneys must do it. Ami
they will, if you awHken their action
by using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
It will not take long to get these
blood filters into working order if you
use this treatment. A few hours will
bring improvement and you will learn
how to keep these organs healthy
and active. One pill a dose, 25c. a

Ralph Connor It a Man With a Flrtt-

Rev. Charles W. Gordon (Ralph
Connor) of Winnipeg, the famous
novelist, who has been appointed
chairman of the board of conciliation
which will seek to settle the big
strike of coal miners in the West, is
noted for his tolerance. That quality
stands out strongest among his characteristics as a man, a minister, and
a writer.
As good an exnmple of this as can
bc found is an amusing incident in
his novel "The Foreigner."
The Anglican bishop in the story
wns being driven over the Edmonton
trail by Sam Macmillan, a very com-
petcnt but very profane freighter.
Every time' the horses became wired
in a sleugh Slim would let loose a
string of original oaths which made
the bishop's blood curdle. The latter
implored the man to desist.
"Just as you say, your reverence,"
replied Sam. "I ain't hurried this
trip, and will do our best."
At the next sleugh the experiment
was tried. Ordinary language was
used, but the horses would not budge.
Half an hour passed with no results.
"It's getting late, Mr. Macmillan,
nnd it looks like rain. Something
must be done," said the'bishop.

More time passed. Then the bishop
gave in.
"Well, well, Mr. Macmillan," he
said, "we must get on. Do as you

He retired from the scene and—
Macmillan seized the reins from
the ground, and, walking up and
down the length of the six-horse
team, began to address them singly
and in the mass in terms so sulphur-
ously descriptive of their ancestry,
their habits, and their physical and
psychological characteristics that

Savins the Children.
That it is better tt save a child Irom
crime than to send him to a retorma-
tory afterwards is the key to the spirit
that animated the people of Regina,
Sask., in establishing a shelter—which
was opened the other day—so as to
deal effectively with the cases o! child
neglect that come before the courts.
The movement for the betterment of
the children was started two years
ago, and the work began in a small
way, a house being rented for it. The
1 movement appealed to the citizens,
and a bylaw was passed voting ten
thousand dollars, which enabled the
directorate to erect the present building and give' it up-to-date equipment.
On tlie ground floor, says The Regina Standard, ill describing the building, is the board room, where in future the Juvenile Court will be held
On this floor also are the dining-room
and matron's suite, while upstairB are
dormitories, bathrooms and other offices, including rooms that can be used
as isolation wards. A great feature is
tiie entire absence of anything sug-
gestite of "an institution" about the
lumishings ol the home. The enameled bedsteads are such as might be
lound in any well-to-do home, and the
spotless linen and beautiful furniture
will always be a pleasant memory in
the minds of tlie cnildren. During the
short time the home lias been in existence over one Hundred children have
passed through it, tiie policy of the
directors being to find homes for tne.
children at tue earliest opportunity,
so that no child is detained any longer than absolutely necessary. Even
children coinin.tted by the police mag-
istrate are allowed honi, on parole,
the parents, ol course, being kept under observation, Three boys are at
present ou parole, who but tor the In-
dueiice ol tue home would in all likelihood have been serving terms ol imprisonment.
Canadian Pittol Record.
Corp!. A. Uuthciiord, a member of
the 'loronto Revolver Club, which is
affiliated with the V. 8. Revolver Association, in a medal match of tlie
latter body at the Armories the other
day made a score nl SB uut o| a possible 100. His score was made up ol
eight tens and two nines. His per-
loriiianci' gives iiui the Canadian record by a nig margin. The former record wus 05. and was held jointly by
Ruthcrlort and H. D. Young ol Montreal.
Rutherford's score was made with a
Colts' service revolver of 45 calibre at
twenty yards, with hand-loaded aminu-
i.itioii. I_utii.it.ml us. d the I). S. Re-
volver Association targets. On several
occasions recently Kutherlord has
threatened tlie Canadian record, only
t.a full down ou his last shot.
Rutherford is a corporal in the
Q.O.It., and his Iriends are naturally
jubilant ever hli really wonderful performance.
Victoria Charity Dsy.
It has been decided that "Victoria
Charity Day," under the management
of the Women s Federation and the
laical Council ol Women will be an
annual feature nl the week ol the 24th
ul May in Montreal, in memory ol tbe
late Queen Victoria.
Giving a Luncheon.
An lmporiuul point to remember always In entertaining Is that It Is not
nearly as Important to serve uiauy
courses or much in eacb course as to
serve everything very prettily and take
Infinite pains In the garnishing of tba
different dishes uud tbe war ibat tbey
are passed und served.
Here Is a suitable menu: Grape*
fruit cut In halves, the fruit scooped
out carefully, tbe lough membrane aud
seeds removed and tlie fruit Havered
wltb lemon Juice mid powdered sugar
and a little maraschino. If you wish.
aud put buck luto ibe halves wltb n
few candied cherries used for decoration on lop of euch half. This course
sbould be ice cold, aud eacb half should
rest on a plale with a dolly and be
eaten" with au oruuge spoon or teaspoon.
For a second course bave bouillon In
cups, but do not hare croutons; they
are nol en regie at a luuebeou. It
would be superfluous to have tlie orange
Juice, oyslers and bouillon. Oruuge
Juice by Itself would be rulher un unusual course, and ll would not he advisable, and oysters ou tbe half shell
are seldom seen now at a luncheon.
Tbe grapefruit will not cost nny
more Ihtiu tbe otlier two courses and
Is exactly tbe thing for the first course.
Creamed salmon ill ramekins served
Individually will be. correct for the fish
and third course, and brown bread
sandwiches, the bread cut very thin
aud the sandwiches in fancy shapes,
will be a good addition.
Halves nf broiled chicken served on
toast wltb currant Jelly. |>otuto croquettes and greeu peas or French
string benus will be all right for tbe
substantial course, but It would not
do at ull to hare chops afterward.
Omit that course altogether; the birds
are enough for the meal course.
Roman punch may come after the
birds,   served   ludividiiuiiy   tn   pUncb
glasses or ice minds.    Waldorf salad
served In apples, wltb cream cheese,
heated  crackers  nnd   bur-le-due  Jelly
will make u guwi salad course.    Do
not pass olives with It    It they are
served   tbey   sbou d   be   a   separate
course, coming between the bouillon
and fish.   Tbey should be passed wltb
radishes, celery stalks und suited uutsv
Strawberry  shortcake  would  be e»
better dessert tban Ice cream, or yoi*.
mlgbt serve a frozen pudding with a.
sauce If you prefer lt to strawberry
shortcake    As a final course huve bonbons  aud  fruit   aid  serve coffee In
demltasses lu tbe parlor after luncheon.
Chocolate passed In enps with whipped cream on top wouirt be correct
If It Is liked. Tbe chocolate cups
and saucers should tie removed wben
Ibe table Is cleared for dessert If
an additional course Is desired bave
between the flsh and fowl fried sweetbreads wltb green peas and have soma
otber vegetable with tbe birds.
Tbe oyster fork muy lie put on tbe
oyster plale or al tne lefl ot Ibe cover
st tbe beud of the other forks, put a
little slanting, or laid regularly by tbe
forks. The knives are always put on
tbe rtgbt of Ihe cover. With the menu
given above you '.vill need only one
knife for lbe birds and a small silver
knife tor the salad course, for the
cheese and nar-le-diic. Have the table
prettily decorated wltb spring flowers
aod bonbons and decoration* tu inatcO.
