there are not enough drinks to naake a class, they will be indexed as read—the principal liquor composing it coming first; thus, brandy sling, claret cup and hot whisky will be in the B's and C's and Ws respectively. If a drink is named for some distinguished individual, look for the first word in the name,and not for the Christian name,as though you were searching for the name of a man in a directory; thus,Sam Ward will be found in S. and John Collins in J. But Gen'l Harrison Egg hTogg will, of course, be under the head of Egg Hoggs. Where both words of a phrase are of equal' significance the drink is classified under the initial letter of the first name; thus. Stone Fence is in S., and Hot Scotch in H. In some instances there is a double classification, so that finding any drink you want is an absolute certainty. The above remarks apply to that department of this work comprehended under the head of Mixed Drinks. The other sections of the book have each a special, but not a long, elaborate index.
