What of the crawfish when it is red?
Of that noblest, most voluptuous of the

"cooked In wine," whose aromatic sue
culence and grateful toothsome ness

to Monday Morning Crawfish), become
but a,gustable memory, a mere spirit

Is there no loophole In the law?
There is not. But there is, it appears,
a loophole in the recipe for preparing
the luscious crustacean.
" "Cooked In wine' Is a well, a mis
nomer, so to speak," explained Otto
Klein, manager of the Hofbrau Cafe,

"Occasionally crawfish to fill a spe
cial order are cooked in a mixture con
taining wine. But that is infrequent.
The recipe which has made crawfish
famous does not call for wine.
"We shall continue to serve them as
usual, without any change in the meth
od of cooking. We sold 60,000 dozen
crawfish this year, and expect to sell
as many more in 1916."
J. E. Fait, of Falt's cafe. Knottier

firmed the absence of wine in the ordi
