offer in the lobby of the senate, he
said, in behalf of former Senator

On Hot Dish and the Rest Cold Ss
It May Be Served at Any Time
and Guests Help Them
selves. Informal suppers on Sunday even
ings are the entertainments provided
oy one country hostess for her friends,
and so successful have these affairs be
come that never is she without sev
eral visitors, and. as the meal Is of a
kind that can be served at any hour,
guests have no feeling of being too
The hostess has but one servant,
and allows her to go out every Sun
day. It is easier to do without any
service than to have that which Is
bad. the employer sensibly maintains,
and declares that it would be de
moralizing to work at other times,
did she allow too much latitude tc
the maid in the dining room on Sun
days. So. after the formal midday
dinner Is over and the dishes washed,
the maid lays the supper tablo and
then departs.
Supper Is either cold or there Is but
one hot dish, this being made In the
chafing dish, and chosen with a view
to not spoiling by standing In the hot
water jacket. Curried eggs, creamed
chicken or salmon, or something simi
lar, is usually prepared, and Incident
ally, should any be left over. It Is ex
cellent for luncheon next day.
Besides this hot food there is al
ways a vegetable salad and mayon
naise, selecting either cucumber or to
mato. There is breac and butter and
Iced tea or coffee. The dessert is
either berries, other fruit, or a kind
that will keep for many hours without
looking left over.
All these are on the table at once.
There Is no tablecloth, but a center
piece, a dish of flowers, and candies.
Plates are not placed at regular inter-
vale, but left in a pile, one at either
end of the table. Knives are also
together, and so are forks, two sets
being at either side of the table to
cave unnecessary reaching. The Jug
of Iced tea and glasses for It are on
a side table, and the dessert may be
kept there also.
The usual time for going into the
dining room is 7 o'clock, but as tho
supper cannot be harmed by stand
ing, and there Is no maid to be de
layed, the hostess goes when she feels
like it. and from then on to 8:30
friends drop in. Each person help?
himself as at any buffet supper, and
there Is never an evening when all Is
not gayety and fun. Such entertain
ing Is no tax on the hostess, and she
sees her friends far more often than
she would under other circumstances.
Since nutomobiling has become more
general, her home is more or less of a
meeting place and Sunday night sup
pers have become an institution in
the household.
Green Tomato Pie Mixture.
Four quarts green tomatoes chop

Add two pounds brown sugar, one
pound raisins, half pnurd citron chop

mixture until it thickens. When cold
add one tablespoon cloves, cinnamon

Anything that will remove the rust
