Hospitality and Entertaining In the dictionary of Noah Webster the word hospitality is defined ns "quality of liciiig hospitable; attention or Ivitidness to strangers." The word entertaining is defined a� "amusing, diverting." IJofore the towns and cities were as thickly settled as tliey now are, hospitality was more generally obeyed than enter -taining. But vith the growth of cities, hospitality, with an armful o( bread and meat, has flown out of the kitchen, door, to give place to entertaining, which conies nuncing up the front slops with her bestdrcss on, ami n tin of sweet biscuits in her hand. Hospitality'means giving what one has, whether it be nightingale's tongues on brochettc, or a cheese sandwich, but both given with all one's I heart and soul. It is a true gentlewoman who makes her guest as welcome to bread and butter, eatenwHh a cup of hot tea on an immaculate kitchen tnl lo, ns she does to a luxurious hnichcon of a dozen courses spread on costly damask, lace^rimnv cd and flower-laden. With the ac -cumulation of inordinate wealth and the contagion of sensuous living, many jjeoplo have erected a false structure of theories upon what used to be considered a simple duty. When hospitality was in vogue, the putting on of an extra service was the only difference between inviting a friend to eat, or not. Nowadays, a spot on the cloth, recalled just in time, a remembrance of a crack in the everyday meat platter, or the thought of the general servant's awkwardness, wilt be sufilciont self-excuse for most housekeepers to turn a belated visitor" out into a dreary world of restaurants, when the lone-lorn dweller in the tents of the house less would have been all too glad to have swallowed spot, crack and awkwardness [or the sake of a glimpse into the home life ot a united family. It is not what is spread upon the table always that makes a dinner go. It is truly silly for people to think that they can not oiTor hospitality without a lot of fuss and flourish. I( people have money, taste and Inclination, let them invite their fellows to dinners ot many courses and break fasts of original delicacies. But if they have the tante and inclination, V ithout the millions, a simple, well-cooked meal will possibly be enjoyed just as heartily. It seems so untrue and -so sily for people to soy. "I wanted to invite those people to dinner; they hud reason to expect mo to do so. but I cannot entertain like ilrs. Bankbook, so I did not ask them." 'This is no excuse. It is a formula for shiftlossness and envy. In days gone by, before the towns had grown large and the sophistries of the city had made their way into the quiet of the country, hospitality waspructised everywhere. If you dropt into a friend's bouse on a cold afternoon, she gave you a bite ofhot toust and a cup o.i tea- If you came in overheated to talk about a summer picnic, she cooled you off with a glass of lemonade. In this day of entertaining a hostess in giving a dinner does not al -ways ask those whom she would like to dine with. She asks first those to whom she is indebted for a dinner. This is the one unbreakable law of the society entertainer. The spirit of barter and exchange is paramount. She docs not dare to invite the people she desires or whom she likes. She must, ask those to whom she is indebted. One great reason for the decline of hospitality and the.rise of entertaining is this very spirit of commercialism, which has swept like a wave even into the home life.wberc it stands a menace to all the old  fashioneilevidcnccs of affection and intimate friendships. So it is with the larger functions. The first names of tho hostess' list are those to whom she must pay back somi; soc -ial obligation. Then if she can squeeze in a few of the wonten whom she likes, or a few friends of her husband's other than those who help him financially or professionally, she rejoices with the gladness of htm who has solved the riddle of Oedipus. The social entertainer gets very little value received for all her fiiss and flourish. So many criticize all the people all ttunbime, and she,poor d(!nr, would thrcK fifteen fits could slio overhear the whispers of those v'ho have partaken of her tea and wafers. But''they all say things about each other. So there is no discriminating malice. After one has turned the house Inside out for a party much too large for the place; when one has grieved )ne'sfriends, angered the help and assLstants, and flattened one's pocket book, what then? A head and heartache, and luck if there's nothing worse. reoj)lo used to' have much more sati-sfnction in having a tew friends and offering them loth of real good things to cat than they do nowadays, when they invite in the multitude and vainly essay to work the loaves and fishes mdracle upon an unsympathetic and hungry aw-emhlagu, Smilax chains and rose decorations do not file an aching void and people fail to fool harmonious when, afer walking a distance and and standing up in a crowded parlor, they rocoivo a baptism of lukewarm tea on a now dress, instead of being seated at a well spread table and given time to eajpy the Uld-fashioncd hospitality was a groat art. It softened nuiny a heart rind made smooth many a rough road. Hospitality is one of the var-tue.s which grows with the exercise and diminished quickly from want of practise. Without daily exercise thisvirtue is one ot the most shrinking deliquescent. It shrinks and withers ' up. until the thought Of it becomes dwarf-like-a lean spectre. There are thousands of men and women who exist in boarding house* and hotels. To these nomads an invitation and hearty welcome into a home means a great deal. They don't care to wait until you give big reception, where their acquaintances will step on their chillblaines and your acquaintances will ask "who's that!" These people pine for the hospitaltiy of being asked as a friend, and not being entertained as'a bufich. In fact,when you come to think of it, even if we all are compelled to have a smash once a year to lighten our debts, who really does love to join the "also rana" and get a crush? The business man who comes home tired at night does not enthuse with the idea of standing up for at least two hours on his wear}' feet, to feel cold chills run up and down his dress-coated back as ho makes a rush for ice cream for some low-necked lady whoso seat in the open window still will probably cost her husband a doctor's bill and a nurse's. Did you ever outstay a crowd oud pick up pieces of ribbon, muslin, flovors, buckles and pins? The lacerated feelings and provoked tempers fortunately were not left behind by the votaries of pleasure. Wouldn't it be delightful if those who scrimp and twist, who gamer and save' for a year, in order to give a grand party then, could or would spread it out during the year on all who came under the blessed shelter of the house? Wouldn't it be heavenly? Of course, some smart Alec would come along and say, "she don't entertain, you know. She never gives a blow-out. Why,of course, she makes you stay to dinner, and has droppers in to lunch, etc., but that isn't entertaining. She should give a big card party, with a priie worth fighting for-that's the stuff." It takes money and tact to entertain properly. It takes a big heart a good tcmiier, and some wit to be hospitable and above all the unselfish satisfaction of doing for others tha/t which they cannot do for themselves. -13x.

ALCOHOL VERSUS MILK. Sir Victor Horslcy, the great English physician, says, "Alcohol was useful neither pathologically nor physiologically," and that, "People should get rid of the ridiculous system of using alcohol as a beverage." During his recent visit to Toronto, Sir, Victor pointed out that in 18�2, seven of the great London hospitals apcgt �3,000 on milk, and over ��,-OOO^on alcohol, while four years ago the amount spent on milk reached, the sum which had previously been expended on liquor. RfiVERSlON TO ORIGINAL TYPE. San FraJicisco under the stress .; of an awful cataclysm, closed up every drinking place and dive in the city for months. The results were as gratifying as the most ardent prohibitionists could wish. To use an inspired figure, "The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire." To quote the Toronto News of July 13, "San Francisco is now a wide-open city. The rum-aellers have consented to pay a heavily 'increased license fee on the underatanding that they are not to bs 'handieapped.' Their doors must be allowed to swing night and day. Dance-hall adjuncts to the saloons will be opened in a few days, and tluj vanguard of a new 'tenderloin' is fast drifting back into town. Prise-Ogblers and 'spurts' are openingtheir garish saloons right and left, and the old-time revel will soon be in full awing again. Evidently some thing more than the worst that nature can do is required to reform 8an Fraaciaco." The close connection between the saloon and crime, was never more clearly demonstrated than by the police statistics of San Francisco, which show an increase in crime of aeven hundred and fifty per cent in the two months following the opening of the aatuons. The increaao in drunkenneas and disorder was nine hundred and JUty per cent, and the auicide record \vas one hundred per sent larger.
