PREPACE.

The principal object of these pages is to furnisli a collection of recipes for the brewing of com- pound drinks, technically termed ” Cups/’ all of which have been selected with the most scrupu- lous attention to the rules of gastronomy, and their virtues tested and approved by repeated trials. These we are inclined to put into type, from a belief that, if they were more generally adopted, it would be the means of getting rid of a great deal of that stereotyped drinking which at present holds sway at the festive boards of England. In doing this, we have endeavoured to simplify the matter as much as possible, adding such hints and remarks as may prove serviceable to the uninitiated, whilst we have discarded a goodly number of modern com- pounds as unpalatable and unscientific. As, in this age of progress, most things are raised to the position of a science, we see no reason why

Bacclianology (if the term please our readers) should not hold a respectable place, and be entitled to its due mead of praise ; so, by way of introduction, we have ventured to take a cursory glance at the customs which have been attached to drinking from the earliest periods to the present time. This, however, we set forth as no elaborate history, but only as an arrange- ment of such scraps as have from time to time fallen in our way, and have helped us to form ideas of the social manners of bygone times.

THE UNTRAINED HAND.
A Study in Household Economics.
By Emma P. Ewing.

Of all the young women who have come under my instruction, as a teacher of household economics, not more than one in each twenty-five could sweep properly. And, as far as my observation extends, along domestic lines, this ratio will hold about the same in regard to women generally. As a rule, women, old or young, do not know how to hold a broom. When a woman takes hold of a broom, she places the right hand near the top of the handle and the left hand toward the broomcorn ; and, instead of changing and reversing her hands, as occasion requires, she keeps them in the same position during the entire time she is engaged in sweeping. Whether she sweeps to the right or to the left, the position of her hands remains unchanged, and her body is contorted and her muscles strained in a performance that would exercise those organs beneficially, if the hands were so trained that they could be used at will, and were changed as the changes in the position of the sweeper demanded.

We brought back this bottle of Portuguese wine from our trip to share with our friends. It is excellent and well balanced. Despite being in Porto I didn’t pick up any port wine except for a small bottle we were given as a gift. Although I did taste port several times while we were there.

** We have returned from Porto and I am streaming out our photos over the next few weeks.

A hot day and a lot of walking so rewarding myself with a nice beer Under a cool umbrella by the River Douro in Porto.
Port wineries might tempt me across the river later.

This store, the first in Italy, open last September, the day before we arrived for the Screenwriting Research Network conference. 
The store is a veritable coffee amusement park with typical Starbucks drinks and food as well as a full-service Italian “bar” with drinks and food and a very classy design.
