An Englishman picks the verbena out before he tastes, throws it on the bar counter, tastes his liquor from the glass and then begins to drink it through the straws. He does not like the method, throws away the straws and gulps it down, and thinks that American drinks are not so very prime after all. It is the bar-tender's business politely to tell them how it is used, and that without offence, or seeming to teach. Sprays that are thrown away can be washed and re-used, but sprays that remain in the glass until the julip is drunk through the straw, can not be used again. Should be cut and the stalks freed from the leaves for about an inch, and then placed in boxes of silver sand and watered 2 or 3 times a day. To use, take a pair of scissors, clip them off and use in the juleps. The mint — roots and all can be kept growing in soup plates, with plenty of water, and it does not make a bad back of the bar decoration. Tansy, wormwood, lavender tops, &c., should all be kept Mint, &c.,
