Written tor The Journal by Frsd .
. '" vv; ;. Lockler,
Boston, Aug. 88. When I wu a small
boy children were raised much mors
slmplr than thejrare nowadays." ; It a
10-ysar-old boy In this year of stace
was tlven a bowl of breed and milk
and sent to bed at dusk be would tniox
himself badly abused.
' I can remember very distinctly le
generously large1 bowl of yellow glased
eer then ware, with Its broad dark blue
stripe around It, In which I used to
have my supper 01 oreaa ana ruik. i
can also distinctly remember how
mighty good the well baked crusty
r Pi
bread and the rich creamy milk tasted.
In those days oranges were a treat to
be looked forward to. They were not
a staple article of diet as they are to
I can remember when I was a little
chap resolving that when I grew up
and became well-to-do one of the first
things I would do with my money would
be to buy aa many oranges as X could
eat Some years ago I visited an or
ange grove near Riverside, Cal.. and
looked about on the encircling acres of
orange treea bending beneath the weight
of their luscious golden fruit. "Help
yourself." said the owner. "Eat all
you want" I discovered that while I
was long on dealre and good intentions
I was short on capacity, and while the
- first few oranges were food fit for the
Gods and tasted like nectar and am
brosia the seventh tasted like a turnip.
As I looked around 1 thought "here is
an ambition realized. Twenty acres of
oranges to eat and I am stalled before
I have eaten a dozen." One thing is
certain there is more pleasure In the
hoping and striving than In the having
and hiving.
Too Vany Oood Things.
Something of the same feeling Is mine
when I think of the four-day meeting
held by the Associated Ad Clubs of Am
erica in Boston. Acres of oranges, and
you can eat lees than a dozen, scores of
splendid addresses by the brightest men
of the country, doiens of Interesting ln-
' cidents material for 20 articles "copy"
on all sides, and you can only mention a
few of the salient points, and those but
The thoughtful and forceful addresses
by such men as Lafayette Young, Wil
liam C. Freeman. Frank Presbrey, Helen
Mar-8haw-Thompson (a one-time resi
dent of Portland) and a score of other
well known speakers I will have to pass
by with regret, and with .equal regret I
will have to pass by the witty and en
joyable addresses of John Kendrlcic
Bangs, of Elbert tfubbard and the in
teresting address of William a. McAdoo.
Instead of discussing the serious
work of the convention I am going to
describe a few of the things Boston aia
for her guests in the way oi eniw"
Hosnltable Boston.
Boston may not enthuse as readily
as some of the newer and less conserv
ative communities. She Is apt to take
time to Investigate a project and Its
projectors. She will move cSutiously
and carefully. She will look before she
leaps, but having thoroughly investigat
ed a man or a movement and having
dPclded to indorse him or It, Boston will
bark its Judgment to the limit.
When it comes to hospitality Boston
mav not respond as quickfy as some
other communities, but when you are
her guest have you ever seen a prairie
fire' A suark will Ignite it. There l
a flash and away It goes. Well, Bos
tons hospitality is not of the prairie
fire variety. It Is of the oak or the
hickory back-log kind. It has In it
warmth and heat and light and staying
qualities. It has in it comron ana
pleasure and kindliness. It has the
New England quality or thoroughness.
Bvenlng Excursion.
On the evening of the first day of
the convention the delegates were taken
for a boat ride on the steamer South
Shore. A thousand or more who were
aboard viewed with ireat lntorest the
sights of the harbor the navy yard
with our sombre and business-like look
ing warships. The Innumerable craft
from tiny rowboats and motor boats
dodging back and forth across the har
bor up to the slow moving dignified
ooean steamerB, Fort Independence,
Spectacle Island, Boston Light, Pem
berton. Soon the serving of a bountiful plonlo
lunch proved a strong counter attraction
to the sights of the harbor. While the
lunch was being disposed of a quartet
of .colored Jubilee singers sang the old
time plantation melodies. On another
part of the boat an Italian siring band
vied with the songs of the boosters
with the result that "Old Black Joe"
became very much mixed with "Whoop
It up for 1912. Whoop It up for Texas.
If you fail to come to Dallas, you oer
talnly will vex us." ' While the strains
of "Love's Golden Dream 'Is Past" got
lost In the shuffle and Inextricably
mixed -with Wisconsin's song "Hurrsh
for Milwaukee. .She's a fine old town.
Hurrah for Milwaukee, she has the re
nown. Milwaukee is a daisy she can
surely set you crazy. Hurrah for
waukee. she's a fine old town."
Oa Hlstorio Ground.
On Wednesday afternoon many of the
delegates, through the courtesy of the
Pilgrims, took an auto ride to view
the" historic points of Boston, while
others visited Dreamwold, the beautiful
country estate of Thomas W. Law son.
In the evening the delegates went to
Copley Square as the guests of the
Atlsnta delegation. Atlanta had shipped
to Boston a thousand or more ' of the
largestjuiciest and most luscious Geor
gia Rattlesnake watermelons to be
found., For a day or two they had been
on Ire, . and when the, 2200 delegates
and the sailors from the battleship
Georgia made their onslaught on them
there was terrible execution.
For three hours laughter and song
prevailed. In . spite of the utmost en
deavor of the several thousand . people
engaged In the fray, they were unabie
to eat mors than balf of the melons, so
ths ropes surrounding the square were
taken down and all of the available po
licemen and motormen aa well as sev
eral thousand spectators.. Including sev
eral hundred excited and delighted
newsboys, were invited Jn to help fin
ish the watermelons. '
' Watermelon Teest.
Among ths newsboys "were a number
of oolored newsies. Talk about happi
ness and bliss. They did not say much
they were, too busy. But if shining
black eyes and flashing white teeth
were" any- Indication, they were oer
tsinly enjoying themselves. For the
first few moments, "Oh Gotly, ain't dis
de finest ever," or "Nother slice," were
their principal remarks. When at last
with a satisfied sigh they had emerged
from the eclipse of the big quarter
moon of melon and had wiped their
faces on thelnA sleeves and dug the
melon seeds out' of their ears there was
plenty of exolted chatter.
One small oewsle looked at a mon
strously large uncut melon and said,
"Oh you watermelon, I wish it was to
morrow' or yssterday so I had room to
eat you. I ain't got a speo of room left
now." Another stopped eating long
enough to say, "Oh gee, I wish the rest
of the gang was here. They won't
never believe It when I tell "em." One
of the men In charge said: "Do you
reckon, eon, you can find the rest of
your gang If I give you that melon T
Do you reckon you can tote It to' them
without dropping ltr "Kin I Just
try me." With a laugh the man handed
It to him and he staggered off to find
the rest of his gang with his eyes
blsck with excitement as he bore oft
his treasure.
Dinner aad'Olsxa Bake,
The big event In the minds of most
of the visitors was the shore dinner
and clam bake given to the delegates
at the famous Lynnway club at .the
Point of Pines. The tables were spread
on the boardwalk under the trees that
line the waterfront The tide was full
and the glinting, sparkling waves were
dimpled with smiles as they rolled soft
ly up the sandy beach. To the north
lay Lynn, while to the eastward Na
hant and Little Nahant were In view.
Later when the sun had set we could
sss Wonderland on Revere beach. Its
turrets, domes and minarets outlined
in sparkling electrio lights like a city
transplanted from Fairyland whose cas
tles and palaces were made of Qje star
dust of the milky way. As the out
lines of the building appeared and dis
appeared one might readily believe that
the winking, blinking, flashing outline
silhoutted against the velvet mantle of
the sky were of some celestial fire that
lit up a city of dreams.
A score of negro cooks in spotless
uniforms of white hovered about s
mound not far from the tables. On a
fire in a pit of sand, stones are placed.
Whan the stones have become red hot
the tire Is taken out and a layer of
seaweed is put over the hot stones.
On top of the seaweed clams and corn
and lobsters are placed, while over this
Is placed another thick layer of seaweed
and a canvas cover, then the water is
turned into the pit When the water
was turned on the hot rocks, huge
clouds of steam rose geyser-like, drift.
Ing through the over arching tree tops,
while the wonderfully appetising odor
made the Inland delegates .wrinkle their
noses with curiosity ana , anticipation.
4:-t:U- Klghty Oood JBettaf. V.;-.? ;,
Out of that mound came dozens of
bushels of Duxhary clams, and , snores
of bushels v,of tender ears of corn, to
say nothing of tub j after tub full of
steamed lobsters. Good? No .wonder
the New Englander away from home has
a longing look when he talks about the
New England clam bakes. .
First we were serVed with ' elam
chowder. There Is an advertising slogan
which reads, "The ham what am." Well,
this was the real thing in clam chow
der. It was the "Clam chowder that
am." in comparison with which all
others are failures. The prime Ingred
ient, of course, was the fat, fine-flavored
Duxbury clams. I have net looked
the matter up, ao-I don't know whether
Duxbury refers to a place or a man.
If the former, theri Duxbury can go to
the head of the olass when it comes to
clams. If It refers to a man, then Mr.
Duxbury can take the blue ribbon for
his ' hand-raised stall-fed standard
bred clams whenever I am Judge of the
live stock division. ,
,When the clam chowder had found
its destination ths hurrying waiters
brought on huge trays of rook cod and
perch and of fried eel. One of the wait
era, without consulting me; laid upon
my plate what looked like a six lnoh
section of a three inch hawser. Just as
sure as a baked rabbit makes you think
of a cat, so sn eel is powerfully sug
gestive of a snake. -
Dog WOnld Come TTp.
Teara ago I attended an Indian war
dance In the Indian Territory. Know
ing that the Ponce Indians, whose .guest
j was, were very sensitive, I ate, rather
than hurt their feelings, the biscuits,
meat and coffee that was served at the
conclusion of the buffalo dance and the
scalp dance. When I went out of the
tepee a little later and saw the fresh
skins of a white pointer dog and a non
descript hairy dog and learned that it
was dog meat that I had partaken of,
I had hard work to hold my dog in
leash. It wanted to come up. I had to
say mentally with great firmness, "Lie
down, Fldo, "Steady there, Rover," to
keep ray share of the dog down.
When I looked at the big round seg
ment of eel on my plate I said to my
elf, "Great snakes do I have to eat
this?" It was not mine to reason why
mine was but to eat, at least to try. so
I shut my eyes, prepared for the
worst and took a bite. My eyes flew
open, so did my mouth. In 60 seconds
that eel had gone down to Join He seo
ond cousins, the olama. and I was anx
iously looking for mora Tender white,
of delicious flavor, a little like trout,
a little like quail. Hereafter the slo
gan engraved on my coat-of-arms will
be, "Eel, more Eel."
Then came the rock cod with steam
ing pyramids of, corn and sweet pota
toes. "Say, Rhode Island, will you kind
ly pass the yams7" said some one across
the table. "Well, Virginia, if you mean
the sweet potatoes, I certainly will,"
answered Rhode Island.
Lobsters and toaster.
Many a man If he was asked what
wee his favorite fruit would have to
confess that his favorite fruit was a
date with a peach, but when the horny
handed, red-faced steamed lobsters ap
peared it seemed that everyone at the
table was anxious to make a date with
a lobster. And the way those lobsters
followed their deep sea comrades Into
retirement showed that many a man
there was a cannibal.
Then came the crowning event of the
feast-the baked clams. My neighbor
on the left was a very pleasant lady
and when the clams came on she turned
to me and said cordially: "1 presume
you people from Nebraska and Oregon
and Texas and the other Inland states
are unfamiliar with the method of eat
ing our favorite, bivalve allow me to
show you how It is dona" Hsr lnten
Mans were of the best I did not like
to tell her that I had eaten clams on
the Oregon- eosst until my stomach .rose
ana reii with the tide, so I allowed my
self to be shown. It was certainly like
carrying coals to Newcastle or snowing
a darky how to eat a watermelon.
Speaking of watermelons, we had them
and vanila Ice cream and coffee and
various beverages, but I bad to stop
right after the clams. Like ..the small
bty at Thanksgiving dinner, I could
chew but I ipuld not swallow.

They say that many a man digs his

diately after putting awsy a supper of
such homerlc proportions, the sdelegatsa
went to the ballroom and Texas gallant
ly offered its arm to Massachusetts
and so on down the line of the various
states delegates and the fun grew fast
and furious as the band played one
waits after another. In the balcony
over the foyer the Boston quartette
sang "Under the Southern Moonlight"
while .the brass band and the audience

off like a skyrocket, and finds the sing

Don't Poison Baby.
pORTY YEAES AGO almost every mother thought her child must have
PAEEG0EI0 or laudanum to make it sleep. These drugs will produce
sleep, and A FEW DEOPS TOO MANY will produce the SLEEP PE0M WHICH
THERE IS NO WAKING. Many are the children who have been killed or
whose health has been ruined for life by paregoric, laudanum and morphine, eaoh
of which is a narcotic product of opium. Druggists are prohibited from selling
either of the narcotics named to children at all, or to anybody without labelling
them U poison." The definition of " narcotio n is ! "A medicine which relieves pain
and produces sleep, but which in poisonous dosesproduoes stupor, coma, convuU
sions and death, " The taste and smell of medicines containing opium are disguised,
and sold under the names of "Drops," "Cordials," "Soothing Syrups," etc. You
should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without you or
your physician know of what it is composed. OAST0EIA DOES NOT CON
TAIN NARCOTICS, if it bears the signature of Chas. E Fletcher.
