A typical F're*nch dinner--not an exceptional one. mark you, but such a dinner as a smill tradesman's fam ily would have-is incomparably su perior to th*e plain roast dinner. There would be. first of all, a few relishes, accordin4 to the season of the year. Rad!shes. ice cold, sardines, olives caviar. Just a little of each with which to awaken the appetite, then the soup tu excite gently the quids of the throat and stomach. ben a little entree-usually a bit of fish with its appropriate vegetable. or a handful of vegetables flavored with meat sauce. Then, and not till then. does the chief course appear. It may be a roast. or game, or chicken, or chops, but in no case will it be anything which is not in har mony with the previous courses and it will be eaten in moderation, for the edge of the diner's appetite will have been dulled by the liehtr foods which have preceded it.

P -ORATION IS IN AIR iter's Explanation of Vital Differ ence Between the Londoner and the New Yorker. "The difference betuween Nev York and London." a man once said to me, "is this: In New York, if you have a new idea. you can get it car ried out at once; in London, if you have a new idea, you are up against a brick wall" I believe this to be true. writes Maurice Paringo In the M,'tropoltan. People in New York, and in America In general, are not afraid of new ideas, nor. indeed of anything new. They are not afraid of the future. In England.

EXPLAINS THE MERMAID MYTH Sailors Mistook the Seal or Sea Calf for Mythical Creature They Thought They Saw. Of course there are no mermaids such as have been depicted to us by imaginative artists for many centuries -mythical creatures, half woman. half Ash, with long waving tresses but it is interesting to note that more than half the ancient pictures of mer maids depicted the creatures sitting on a rock in the sea combing their long hair and looking into a small hand mirror. Where did man get the idea, that mermaids possessed combs and mir aoms? At first one might think it evolved through the belief that mer maids (man once believed they ex isted) all possessed long hair, and, possessing it. naturally did what all women do-combed It. And because women, have always used mirrors-even the prehistoric women used pools of water for this purpose-these old artists gave their painted mermaids mirrors and combs. But this is not true. It was no sup position on the part of the old artists. Th...
