Wb a Name Counts.
It good old Mr. Shakespeare, or even
Bacon were to step Into a modern drug
tore and try an adventure with the soda
fountain, they would undoubtedly revise
that Ill-considered, passage in their works
which demands what Is in a name. "For

Since the day ot Jeffersonlan simplicity,
wbea to quote from an article in Harper'
Monthly in 1872, "The flavor most gen-
' erijly used are lemon, strawberry, pine
apple, vanilla and singer," there ha been
a great change and broadening In the
nomenclature and chemsltry of the soda
water business. ' Now every onyx fountain

hundred and a halt drinks in which they
deal. For Instance, some raspberry syrup,
a dash of soda from the fin stream and
some Ice cream when combined may form
either ona of two entrancing polysyllables,
all depending on whether the first, second
or third ingredient goes first Into the glass.
Some, of the names which are used are
nationally familiar, other remain In sec
tional use while still more are confined to
the house where they originated. Most of
these name spring from the literary fe
partment which Is well developed in the
minds of successful soda clerks; others are
due to some popular book or fashion and
still other come from the mnufacturer of
some new extract or tonic.
How They Originate.
Sundaes are made and eaten, but no one
know who was their Inventor or what the
word mean. It Is variously spelled sundae,
undea and sundee and Is said by some to
mean "mixed" and to have originated in
Chicago. Other experts deny this. A
breexy stimulating drink which contain
malted milk and wa . designed In a local
drug store, is called the "Tejon Bracer,"
after a street In Colorado Springs. "Na
voro" lr the name ot another package of
carbonic acid gas done up In flavored water
and cream. St. Julian punch, egg angos
tura, grape cobbler, orange spray, coffee
frappe, ambrosia fllpp, chocolate bousha
(which Is another way of saying frappe).
Queen Boss (a fruit lemonade), LaComa.
egg a la mode. New York beauty, Satan'
delight, Delmonlco ftipp, Scotch rose, fuu
taema. Manhattan cream, creora puff,
rospho royal, Whiterock lemonade (which
Is founded on llthla water), these are se
lection from the list of "new" drinks. A
young man may now ask a young woman
to have a cold bird with him and yet not
transgress the laws of what I fitting for
the recipient of a $16 wage, for the cold
bird thut he meant can be had at the soda
fountain for 10 cents. Then there Is an
other concotlon which Is dubbed "a dream,"
but It would purxle anyone not a tea taster
to tell wherein the latter, the "cold bird"
and a "Satan's delight" dlfTer from the
Drink Hare Their Day.
"Drink catch on and become the rage."
said a local sodamlxer. "and after a while
lose out to tomi other kind. The nut and
cantaloupe sundae are about the leader
now, ar.d you have no Idea how many we
ell. The sundae has been In now about
three year. Root beer I another thing
which seem to hit the arid spot this sum
mer. I think the steins which were Intro
duced last year have something to do with
thia, especially where they are kept In sight
in a shallow tank of water with ice. They
look fine and cool and people ask what we
serve In them. Some place they sell more
root beer than anything else. Malted milk
I a leader, too, and only became generally
used last year for cold trade, while It ha
been used for a long time with hot soda. I
think the manufacturer have pushed It into
general use. but It makes a fine drink Just

good deal of the cooling a man gets from
these drinks comes in a way he don't think
of. He comes In where he is out of the un
and sit under a fan. Then he see the lc
and hear it tinkle and by the time he get
hi drink he is cooling off and he gives all
the credit to the drink. Frozen phosphates
are seven year old, I guess, but there Is
still a ateady custom for them. Maple,
chocolate and coffee frappe are alway
popular and never lose out with ome peo
ple. Chocolate Now the Rase,
"By the way, chocolate has grown won
derfully. A few years ago you couldn't get
chocolate at some of the small fountains,
but now people want it in everything. I
think it becomes a habit. I don't remem
ber to have ever had such a call for mint
before this season. Mint phosphates,
freeies and arctics are called for regu
larly. Egg drinks are alway popular, but
there is a great deal In the way they are
mixed and people hesitate to order one
from a man they do not know. Mixer
who have not been well taught put In too
much Ice and pour It from one glass to
another too long and too hard. Egg phos
phate Is made with lemon Juice and the
white of an egg with the acid phosphate
and soda. Silver flzx is made from the
white of eggs, catawba syrup, with a dash
of rum, and filled with soda and shaken.
Royal, that you see In the name of so
many drinks, means, In the profession, a
whole egg. Claret lemonade is often called
for, and we draw a good bit of mineral
water. Ice cream was first used, I think,
"It is the little things that count in this
business. Everything in front should be
Immaculate, the glasses should shine we
polish ours every morning with bi-car-bonate
of soda and too much Ice should
not be used. We want most to avoid a
bad taste in the mouth after the drink.
Being after everything else. It Is remem
bered longest, and they don't come back.
It takes a man five years at the foun
tain before he begins to get to the fine
point of the buslnysa. There 1 no school
for soda clerks, and there sliould be. We
Just pick it up by practice under sflThe
head man. It ha got to be Just a exact
a science a that of the mixer of fancy
bar drink and a good man command high
pay. One of the hardest things 1 the mix
ing of the syrup. Formerly we used gum
foam, made of glycerine and soap bark, to
make the soda frothy, but we have passed
that time by."
Woman Test the Concoction.
Woman la said to be a sampler ot all
new mixed drinks at the beginning of each
season who wcj it said that women were
not curious? but later on she settle back
to a few favorites. The sundaes and Ice
cream sodas are the rule. The men know
what they want superior creatures and
large, y drink mixed drink. Early In
tn d.y, It I said, when the women are
busy shopping and are merely thirsty
they taft phosphate and lemonade, but
In the evening when, care free, they repair
to the druggists' chairs it la something
weet with Ice cream tn It. Men are said
to frequent the fountain now where they
did not formerly. In the day gone by

In these elaborate days of ' uni
versal soda It is Interesting to
turn to a sedate and conserva
tive old encyclopedia which refuses to rec
ognize soda water at all, but refers the
reader to "aerated water" and say:
"Acidulous or alklline water Impregnated
with carbonic acid and extensively used to
allay thirst in feverish conditions." Well,
yes, perhaps. And further, "Carbonic acid
water Is when iced a most refreshing drink
in seasickness and in many cases of dis
ease." It Is one foot in the grave and the
other on a banana peeling with that en
cyclopedia. Ko "Soda" In It.
It may interest those who gather dally
around the solda water fountain to know
that there is no soda in any way con
nected with tho chemistry of the thing.
The water is impregnated with carbonic
In an article published in 1872 in Harpers
it Is said that metal fountains have most
altogether been replaced by marble ones,
one ot the most elegant and elaborate and
Justly proper being the cottage. A few
of the kind are to be found In country
town at this time. The article further
ays that shaved Ice with sweet cream and
syrup Is being fancifully named Ice cream
Boda. Hot soda was then new. Chocolate
and coffee were UHCd with hot chocolate
and lemon was most popular with "the ice
cold draught." Fruit syrups were usually
only a so-called article. According to this
writer soda water was first made about 100
years ago, and one Austin Thwaltes of
Dublin was the angel In disguise and
probably a quite thorough disguise too
who discovered the priceless fluid. Where
does he lie that we may place a towering
monument to him? Only about forty-five
years ugo wa much Interest taken in the
fluid and. at the Paris exposition of 1867
the first fountain to be seen on the con
tinent was exhibited by Americans and
as many as 4.000 glasses a day were sold.
Harper goes on to describe the progress
made and the great amounts expended for
fountains: "Unusually pretentious draught
stands cost as much aa $2,000, and even
larger are described, one in New York
city having appliances for drawing thirty
two kinds of syrup."
John W. Bell was about the first man to
enter the soda water business In Omaha
and had a drug store on South Tenth
street. He wa followed by D. W. Saxe,
who captured the whole trade for years.
During lists, 1S89 and IKK) his business ac
cording to his own statements amounted to

TWO TALES BY CRIMINALS

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE HELD UP
Professional Footpad Say the Only
Safe Coarse Is to Ran and Fast
When Accosted by
A large class of professional criminals
who, when an attempt la made to ."sweat"
them by the police, will talk freely enough
of crimes they have committed in the past,
and which it is too late to punish them for,
but who absolutely refuse to give up any
thing which would in any way connect them
with the matter In hand. When taken into
the captain' office they become confidential
and, as they get better acquainted, reminis
cent. To this class belonged a professional
burglar who was picked up tn Omaha some
time ago. ' He could not be connected with
any crime committed in this city, but was
held some day until several police depart
ments were heard from where It was
thought he might be wanted. During a con
versation with an officer while he was
boarding at the Jail he told the following
"I wa laying around Sioux City, keeping
out of sight. A crib had been cracked in
Des Moines and a I wa the guilty party I
thought perhaps there might be inquiries
about me. There wa no attempt on my
part to do any business in the city where I
wa stopping, because I knew the bunch
were onto me, and all I wanted for the time
being was to be lot alone. During my stay
I met a fellow who claimed to betho whole
thing. He said he had done burglary, stick
up and confidence work, with other little
odd Job to fill In between time, and to
hear his spiel you would think he was the
crack criminal of the century. I had al
ways been in the habit of working alone,
but the fellow' tale was so plausible that I
decided to take a partner In my next enter
prise. "Well, we laid around Sioux City for a
few day to get better acquainted and kind

but one gun between us, I thought it
would be better for my friend to keep It
on the outside. I got inside and opened
the front door to make my get-away in
case anything unforseen turned up. When
I got fairly Buttled to business and pre

was startled to hear two shots fired on the

How to Handle a Footpad.
A notorious "stick up" man languished
In the city prison several days, some weeks
ago and during hi stay, he gave many
valuable pointers, to a certain officer on the
force with whom he became confidential
regarding the hold up business.
The conversation turned at one time on
the question. "What should a man do when
he Is held up?" A this Is a question which
has perhaps agitated tho mind of almost
every, man at some time In hla life, it may
be Interesting to know what the "stick
up" man himself think the other party
to the episode should do. This particular
Individual, who admitted that he had
figured In several hunderd hold ups during
his term of business, a the man behind
the gun, said:
"I hav heard many people Bay what they
would do under such circumstances, but
I have yet to hear the first man give the
proper mode of action. Some of them
would show fight, some would remain
passive, waiting for an opportunity to get
the robber, and some would stand for a
frisk with no Idea of trying to get the man
who was doing the business. They are all
wrong. The only thing for a man to do
when he i held up Is to run and run fast.
No matter If the hold up has a gun stick
ing right under your nose, break away and
take to your heel. He will not shoot at
you. The last thing a man In that profes
sion want to do when he I working 1 to
attract attention, and there I nothing
which will attract attention like a shot
fired In the night. Many a man ha secured
a long sentence for himself by firing too
quickly and any man who understands the
business will not take the chances of shoot
ing, preferring to look for another victim.
"The best advice I can give any man
who Is held up Is, don't resist. I never
went out with the Intention of kilting a
man at any time, but you know tf the man

Anne, a southern beauty of 4 years, had
a decided aversion to her morning bath.
One evening her nurse was telling her of

them! Tell Him to pick them off!"
