The Informal Tea
N Informal tea is an excellent
yh 1 method of letting one s
I V I friends know that one Is
ready to see them after the
summer 3eason, for even
housekeepers who have stayed In
town through the warm weather and
have not the excuse of absence, and
recent return, for sending such cards,
still may do so as a sign that their
houses are In order. No matter how
simple the home, It Is always more or
less stripped for the summer months,
and not until all has been restored
is one quite ready to receive.
The simplest way oif'havlng an nt
home is to send one's visiting curds.
Across the top one writes: "Won't
you come on Thursday afternoon, tho
9ih, to have a cup of tea?" It Is not
necessary to follow this form pre
cisely, but the point Is that the date
shall be given and the occasion ex
plained In the fewest possible words. .
No answer Is required to such a
card, but one who Is unable to be
present should post her own visiting
card on the day. Just as she would for
a formal affair. She may, if she
wishes, respond to the invitation when
it la received by writing a line on her
card, She may say "will be so happy
U come on the 9th," putting thej line
below her own name, and beginning
the first word with a small letter,
making her name the opening of the
sentence. 'There Is no doubt that suoh

SOME NEW EVENING COSTUMES
Many Different Kind of Material
Combine la Lovely Llnea
There are lovely gowns of all kinds this
fall, but when one attempts to do Justice
to the evening gowna turned out by the
best makers words fall. Not within our
memory have both materials and designs
for these confection been so ezqulelte,
and the variety permissible in period Ideas
has given the makers a chance to Ting
loose rein to their fancy.
They must be seen to be appreciated,
these lovely shimmering frocks, compact,
of graceful line and melting color and won
derful detail, but the temptation to talk
of them Is irresistible even though one
chafes against the limitations of the vo
cabulary. Making the Hair Gloaar.
To keep the hair bright and glossy, and
rncourage a strong and rapid growth, few
bitter methods exist than that of ventila
tion. The treatment should be practiced for
five minutes each day, night and morning.
The tresaes should be separated one by
one and shaken gently and slowly, so that
the air may penetrate between the strands.
If a maid's help Is obtainable, a (till better
result can be secured, the attendant fan
ning the air gently onto the hair with the
right hand, while supporting one lock at
a time with the other. This must be per
sisted In until the hair feels light and the
persons to provide tea and sand
wiches. At an Informal tea It Is pleasanter
for the hostess to pour tea. To have
an assistant gives an air of formality,
even though such may not be In
tended. If one's acquaintance is so
large that all friends cannot be bid
den at one time that the hostess may
pour for herself, she may divide her
list and have several different at
homes, thus getting In all without
Tea, sandwiches and cakes, with
candles and salted nuts, may be on
the table. The guests help them
selves, a maid being required only to
remove the soiled cups.
A woman who has but one servant
will 'find her housekeeping much sim
plified If she makes a rule of having
a day at home through the winter. It
may be once a week or once a month,
but the household work can then be
so arranged that the maid is ready,
properly gowned and aproned, to open
the door to admit those who call.
Friends will not come on other days
If one is set for them, and such con
tretemps as alt housekeepers experi
ence with only one servant may be
successfully avoided for years.
Tea may or may not be served, as
the hostess chooses. Some housekeep
ers find It easier to serve a glass of
sherry and cake to callers, for no
extra work in the kitchen Is then re
quired. To give a friend some sort of
refreshment Is a graceful act and ono
that adds to the enjoyment of the
acalp cool and refreshed.
Besides proving excellent for the hair,
the treatment la wonderfully stimulating
afler severe brain work, and has been
much recommended In nervous complaints,
of which headache and Insomnia form a
Another excellent method of making the
hair soft and silky la that known na the
"lime .treatment." says Woman's Life.
Before washing It the skin of the head
should be rubbed with a cut lime, the
Juice being left on the nair for five
minutes, when it should be washed off
quickly in warm soft water In which a
little borax has been dissolved, the hair
being afterward shampooed with the yolk
of an egg. To dq.thls effectively the yolk
should be rubbed over the hair evenly
and left to sink Into the roots for a quar
ter of an hour, after which it may be
rinsed off with the aid of tepid water, the
hair being afterward washed with good
soap In the usual way.

PLAIN SPEAKING FROM BENCH

Kindness t Newspaper
When asked If he knew any Interesting
anecdotes concerning Justice Rufua W. '
Peckham, who died last Sunday, an at
tache of the Urlted States supreme court
for the last quarter of a century replied.
"I know nothing about Justice Peckham
xcept that he waa the best listener who
has been on the supreme bench In my time.
He was every Iroh a judge In appearance
In character. In deportment and In the
strength and Justice of hla opinions."
Among his assoolatea Justice Peckham
enjoyed the reputation of being absolutely
and entirely devoted to the court's business
In his fourteen years of service In Wash
ington he made no public speeches and ac
cepted no outside trusts. His opinions were
vigorous In thought, and usually expressed
In terse and forcible language. He showed
Cn occasions that his feelings were deeply
moved by what ha believed to be Injustice
and he did not hesitate to dissent strongly
from the opinions of his aasoclates whon
he believed, them to be Incorrect He waa
the only member of the court not a collsgo
Justice Peckham's Independence wss a
striking as Is that of Juatloe Harlan. A
member of the bar of the Dlstrlot of Co
lumbia told a story the other day Ibout s
conversation he once had with Mr. Harlan,
In which he asked the Juatloe why It waa
that In his law lectures he never read the
decisions of the supreme court. "Because
they are bad law," replied Mr. Harlan,
whose dissenting opinions are as frequent
as they are vigorous.
Why lie Feared Death.
Justice Harlan waa complaining one day
about his health. He said he was getting
pretty old and that ha was afraid he waa
going to die soon.
"Why should you be afraid to die whon
you are a good Presbyterian T" asked Jus
There was a merry twinkle In the eyes
of Mr. Harlan when he replied: "Well,
Peckham, the truth Is I've been so Intimate
With you for the last dosen yeara that Tm
afraid I may turn up at democratic head
quarters In the next world." Mr. Harlan's
humor was not lost on Mr. Peckham, but
his only acknowledgment was a suppressed
Although Mr. Peckham enjoyed the con
fidence and regard of his colleagues, he had
no Hpeclal chum among the Justices. Jus
tices White and Holmes are great cronies
ana when the weather Is fair they may
frequently be seen strolling home together
from the capltol. Justices Brewer and
Harlan are quite chummy and frequently
their homeward Journey Is made together,
either on foot or In a street car. Justice
Peckham never walked to hla home from
the capltol and seldom rode In a Washinr-
ton street car, a mode of travel quite popu
lar With Rome Of his rnlUnr,. u
Peckham made It a rule to call for him at
the capltol every day with the family car
Mr. Peckham wa one of the best dressed
members of the supreme court. His silk

locked as if it had com, fresh from thai

A dosen years ago a man who has since
attained distinction as a Washington news
parer correspondent was a cub reporter
on a Baltimore newspaper. The supreme
court had handed down a decision of great
importance to the state of Maryland, and
the cub reporter was assigned to Inter
view Justice Peckham, who had written
the opinion, and to get from him a further
explanation of the deelalon. In fear and
trembling the young man rang the bell
at the home of the Justice. Mr. peckham
himself came to the door and listened at
tentively while the frightened reporter ex
plained the purpose of his call. .
"Won't you come In?" was Mr. -.Peck-ham's
Invitation, as he led the way to his
library. "Well, well," he said, when his
caller was seated, "you know It Is the un
written law that a supreme oourt dectalon
ahall never be explained. The opinion
speaks for Itself, and anything that I
might say would not add to or take from
the law aa laid down In the opinion. Of
course, I always like to help a man, and
perhaps In this instanoe I may be justified
In doing a little talking." Justice Peckham
then proceeded to expla'n. omitting the use
of legal phraseology, what his opinion cov
ered. The cub reporter turned In whet the
city editor told him was "a bully good
story," which commendation, together with
his eourteous reception at Mr. Peckham's
home, was compensation for all the terrors
that afflicted him when he was assigned to
Interview a Justice of th highest court In
A Kindly Action.
Another Instance of Justice Peckham's
kindness to representatives of the papers is
related by a Waahlngton correapondent.
Justice Peckham was a director In one of
the Insurance companies which came under
fire during the Investigation of several
years ago, Thla correspondent was In
structed to ask the Justice what he had to
say concerning his connection with the
company. The correspondent called at Jus
tice Peckham's residence, not without some
misgivings, and, although he couched his
question In the moat diplomatic language
he could command, ha noted with alarm
the heightened color which showed clearly
through the Justice's clear, thin skin as he
grasped the purport of the inquiry.
At first Justice Peckham declined to aay
anything whatever, but after a few mo
ments he unbent, decidedly and confided to
the correspondent that It waa his purpoae
to realgn in about thirty days. "I have no
Id. a. young man." he aaid, "what has
prompted me to confide In you, an utter
stranger to me. However. I rely on you
to say nothing about this until my resig
nation haa been forwarded." The corre
spondent promised to respect the confi
dence, but requested that when the Justice
sent In his resignation the paper he repre
sented be permitted first to announce It.
The Justice repllad: "I will bear your re
quts'. In mind." 1
Nearly five weeks later the correspondent
was aurprlsed on bring rilled to the tele
phone to hear a voice say: "Thla la Jus
tice Peckham of the supreme court. If you
come to my residence this evening I will
take plvaaure in handing to you a copy of
my resignation from the company,
which I have Juat mailed. Tou have re
spected my confidence and It affords me
pleasure to be able to grant your reqiiee)

Justice Peckham waa among the most
attentive members of the supreme court
whon an argument was being made. He
followed the reasoning of counsel with care
and patience and waa alert to every vital
phase of the case. He saw with a clear
vision and It was not neceesaty to "pound
things home" by reiteration to make him
understand. He asked fewer queatlons th;m
any of his colleagues, and never Indicated
by a nod or a shake of the head what Im
pression was being made on his mind by
some special feature of the argument.
When he did ask a question It was directed
to the very heart of the case and was pre
cisely and quickly stated. He had no pa
tience with lawyers who Indulged in ex
travagant languuge and sought to covor
up their legal deficiencies 01 the weakness
of their cause by their oratorical ability.
He felt that It was the duty of lawyer to
give the court credit for a reasonnble fa
miliarity with Its own declHlona.
Plata Speaking from Bench.
Several years ago a lawyer who wan ar
gi:i g a rather Important case proceeded
to read at length from his brief exhaustive
opinions of the court on what he regarded
as analogous legal points. When he had
been thus reading for nearly half an hour
he was InterrupUd by Justice Peckham.
"What Is your
purpose in reading thsc
rupieme court opinions?" Mr. Peckham
arked. with a touch of irritation in hla tone.
"Well, it Is part of my argument." re-
plied the attorney, "but If It is fatiguing
I will desist."
"It la fatiguing very fatiguing," said
Justice Peckham. with a sigh of relief at
the prospect of Its cessation. Justice
Brewer chuckled audlr-'y and Justice White
smiled his approval.
The dead Justice had a quick temper and
oould speak his mind in language both
forceful and picturesque when occasion re
quired. This was a family characteristic.
It was said that hla father, who at the
time of his death In the shipwreck of the
Vllle de Havre, In 1K73, was one of- the
Judges of the court of appeals of New York
atate, could make the air blue with vehe
ment words when irlngs did not go to suit
him. His Diotlwr, Wheeler H. Peckham,
wrose confirmation as a Justice of the
I'nlted States supreme ciurt was defeated
by Senator David B. Hill, was well able to
talk back when the spirit moved. New
