Dear Readers In Blylheville: . ' So '.many questions.. have been . asked me about the 'proper way to Jay & table, t'nnt hi -answering I sttair try lo cover the entire subject • Including the accepted essen- well as proce- salad plate or small luncheon plate, the oyslers whole, left' In the shells, First washed in cold water, .the shells washed, then the oysters returned to the shells, and all chilled In the refrigerator. In the center of each plate Is a small glass fllksd with the seasoning, H may be cal'- iup, mixed half and. half with horseradish, and containing a f^w drops of Worcestershire, and about one eighth teaspoon of curry i»w- <ler. Facli oyster is lifted on the little oyster work, dipped In the seasoning, and eaten whole. The shells arc left on the plate. And the cocktail fork is also laid on t plate, when been ealcn. the Inst oyster the hfes A fruit cocktail is eaten w(th, -a teaspoon; Ih cnsc'*"'""' ~~" ' segments, place one on each des. sen plate, and pass li to Ihe guest at llic right. Or cut lln bring, in ihe a piece of pli- on It. and Hie dessert fork, also laid on H. Fill water glasses' again if this is needed; and If ihe culfee Is being made In a percolator In the dining room, II should be given lasi 'minute at-!on. If cofloe Is served al llie table.. It may be placed while the ile.SEen is .beiiu; eaten. As In serving ony other meal, Ihe'smoolliiies'; and success depend largely on. cartful lore-prepora- ___. lion; not only shop well in advance,' * . I plan the cookery so (hat each'dish' a is finished when ll-**)iou'.d-be-but served iii tial equipment as dure. When setting the table for din- Vier, if a damask or solid linen clolh Z is to be used, a heavy pad of cotton- : j ;f%d muslin must first be laid on v the table. If you have no such pad ;J 'and -are buying 'one [or the first x 'time.-, have It cui, to fit your table; S iuy two if the table is to be used •:\ •extended with exira leaves for Is Jc'me'dinners. The shop will stitch '; .the cloth 'or bind it on all edges, fj ir-the department is equipped for » >uch service; or you can easily do .this -at home with narrow 'cotton -tape. This pad deadens sound and protects the table top's finish. - -The cloth is spread smoothly over _; this, the central fold of the clolh laid accurately down the center of }fic table. The centerpiece of flowers or fruit is placed next, and if candlesticks are used (and these are •net only proper but very attractive lat dinner) t'ncse arc placed be-' iween the centerpiece and the ta- ! We edges; one at each side, with: 'compotes of nuts or candies, half ."way between the centerpiece and •the candlestick. ;. The centerpiece and candlesticks .may be of silver or colored glass, • -or pewter or any other attractive ware which harmonizes with the .scheme of the table. •-' 'When I*ce Ix t'Md If a damask cloth is not used the pad of course, is omitted; the beauty of a lace or embroidered cloth is enhanced by' the dnrk' table top showing through. But linen covered pads. for hot dishes are laid In front of the host's plate or before that of" the hostess, and removed when -the dishes are removed for the last time to the kitchen. This arrangement also applies' with a runner and mat service.' In each case the dinner napkins riiatch the cloth used, and arc not less tha: eighteen "Inches" square, the'hand- •Komc damask ones being twenty- four inches in more formal households.' .""j '. "_ - ; Do not use cahdleshades on the candles; this 'Is no longer favored in home .'use/'. A' service plate 'Is i laid at, each 'place. The folded nap- i kin is -laid oil it' if there Is to be 1 no first course' In place when the 1 guests seat • themselves; otherwise the. napkin is"'laid at' the 'left of the plate, beyond the forks .The 'Silver I Silver '-is laid hi the same order as,, for the luncheon- described some tlme'ago; all forks at the left except. an oyster- fork- or sea food cocfcteU fork which k laid on the cocktail pJate; O r 'a't'the rlgfct beyond .-the spoons. The order for a simple menu 'then is: beginning al the: left; folded 'napkin; dinrie Hi*; -salad fork; service plate, with oyster cocktail on It, In Its "own plate, the oyster fork laid on the oyster plate; dinner knife; tea spoon; water goblet at tip of knif. blade. (All knife edges are turncc toward the plate)',- Bread and but ter plate, if 'used Is placed at th left and above the forks, with th small butter knife (no longer call ed a spreader) laid across it, han die toward the right. Serving ihe Menu ' Supposing this Thanksgiving you are serving a menu something like this: oyster cocktail (fruit cocktail if oysters not available): roast chicken with baked squash, corn siifTle and escalloped potatoes- banana and date salad; pirnpktn pie: coffee; mints and nuts. The latter are In the compotes or any decorative small dishes on the table, when the guests seat themselves. ', The first course is also in place. If-oyster cocktail it is served on a place, of .. _ ___. spoons should bo laid, at the. right of each service plattr'beyorid the knife. When this course Is eaten, the hostess rises from her place and carries out the service plates containing (he oyster plates and forks, beginning with the guest of honor; removing chc plate with oyster plate on It, from the left of the guest, and carrying U quietly out to the kitchen, she should never stack plntes In the dining room, nor take two at a time, unless Hie kilchen floor stands open and she does not, need bolh hands to manage:) the plate and the door. , ..-.,-••. When all the service, plates — \vllh oyslor plates on them have been carried to the kilchen, she gives (lie final touches to the main coursf of .the.dinner in tho kitchen. When the roast Is on ils hoi platicr. the vegetables dished in Ihelr hoi dls'ics,. and ' lef(. in: a warm place, she carries in a pile o[ hot plates and puls them before he host or bsfore her place if she to serve the dinner. The silver or serving these courses (large arvlng fork and knife, spoons for fiuasli and corn) should . be In Ince when the guests sit-down. Then'as quickly and quietly as osslble. she carries in the roast nd other dishes, brings the plate f hoi rolls last. This may be pul own al another side of the table, nd the nearesl guest may pass it o the one on the right, and so on round, while the roasl Is being nrved. .|, When each plale Is served, it is passed by the carver to the guest at his right, who cither keeps it or passes It along, as dlrecled, Ihe preference for light or darlc meat naking this a mailer of each :uest's choice Jellies, relishes, and gravy are passed frfim guest lo guest in me lame way; and each of these should lave'an appropriate spoon In It so t is easily handled. Sendnjr 'he Salad The main course pjales are re moved just as the first.course was removed; and at this time bread and butter plates condiment com^ poles, and Jellies are also" taken out. If there Is a.serving table i or flat buffet .in-., the-dining, room :hesc plates and dishes as well as :he first course plates are carried one at a time to It,.and quietly arranged on a Iray on It so that one or two trips to the kitchen will clear the entire course away. ' Then Ihe. table should be crumbed, using a folded napkin 'in each hand, one to brush with the other to catch the crumbs. These are put.on the serving tray and carried out, or wilhout the'tray are simply taken to the kitchen Pill water glasses at this time then bring in the salad plates and if a dressing Is to be passe( with them, or crackers, or little pretzel sticks, bring these In (the) should be heated, like the rolls) and pass from guest to guest. Dessert and Coffee The salad- plates arc taken fron the table just as the prevloi plates; then with the pie, two pro cednres are possible, one may b serving the pie at the table; in th case bring in the plates for the pi clean up .ihcv kitchen., as the dimier IS;Cfc>k»d, and leave space, to' heat plates, to chill others'.' in ' 'the refrigerator; cii'd fq put down, 'soiled plates whe/l they arc carried, from ' the'* kllchcn. should iw no signs.of hurry-.on the part,of Ihe'hostess; on the', other hand she should not keep her guests waiting unduly long. ..
