A welUappointed table is an invita
tion to the appetite at the family ii
eated for a meal; and a well-served
meal adds to the enjoyment of food
on all occasion. By "well-served"
one need neyer mean formally or
elaborately served, for a dinner may
be well-served whether there is a
maid present in. the house or not.
One careful housewife of my ac
quaintance says she never calls her
family to a mra! without saying to
herselt first, Are tne bread, butter
and water on the table? So many
women neglect to have everything
ready before announcing a meal, and
thus cause confusion at the start. For
a family dinner, where there is no
maid, tne first course should be on
the table before the family is called
and the salad and dessert should be
as nearly ready as possible. If soup
is not served, or even if it is, the salad
may be placed on the table immedi
ately. In clearing the table remove

the large platters, vegetable dishes,
etc., first, then the individual plates.
Everything should be removed before
the next course is brought on.
So many times the question is asked
as to the side trom which the waitress
should serve Table serving, like
table setting, should be governed by
common sense; and, so iar as I can
see, it makes no difference whether
Dlate is removed or placed from th
right side or tne left. The only rigid
rule is that a l!ish from which the
guest helps himself, such as a plate of
Bread, must be offered from the left
side. The reason for the rule is clear
it is easier to reach across with the
right hand than backward. One other
absolute rule in refilling glasses do
not take up at all if it is possible to
refill without so doing, or, if the
glass must be lifted, do not touch the
part toward the brim. Always lift a
goblet by the stem.
For more formal occasions, service
like the Russian is used. Our Ameri'
can method of serving is really
compromise between the English and
the Russian styles. In the English
style, the platters, etc., are placed on
thej table and everything is served by
the host or hostess. In the Russian
style, everything is served from the
pantry. This latter method is always
used at banquets and usually at din
ners or luncheons, which are at all
formal. At the present time however,
the guests sometimes serve them
selves fromidishea which the waitress
offers. The easiest method of serving
on formal occasions is to remove
the used plate with one hand, and
place the new course with the other
hand, it serving trom the right, re
move with the right hand and serve
with the left; if serving from the left,
remove with the left hand and place
with the right.
Before the dessert course, every
thing should be removed except the
candies. The crumbs may be removed
onto a plate with the aid of a soft
papkin. If wore silver is left at any
place than --will be needed for the
dessert, the extra silver should be
If linger bowls are used, each bowl
may be placed on a dbily on a plate,
with a flower or sprig of green at one
side. It is unnecessary to sneak
against the old fashioned idea of hav
ing the waitress take one finger bowl
from guest to guest.
lhe only general rules to follow
in table serving are to avoid all con
fusion, to secure the comfort of the
family and guests, and to make the
mechanism of serving as nearly unob
trusive as possible.
