By C. E. Hawker

Now, the opposite morning i used to be lucky adequate to obtain a replica of a pleasant little paintings, from the pen of Mr. C. E. Hawker, entitled "Chats approximately Wine." Its item is the modest one in every of attempting to "awaken an curiosity within the topic between those that haven't hitherto given a lot idea or cognizance to it," and to stress the significance of acquiring one's offers from right and trustworthy assets. The publication is neither tradey nor boring, and it'll be learn with appreciate via paper investors, in addition to others, who've an clever curiosity within the topic, or a wish to gather one. The gourmand and the guy, specially if he be of modest potential, who wants to start conserving a small cellar, will locate it a delightful consultant loose from all technicalities, and a piece calculated in different respects to win his approval. the writer longs for a recrudescence of a flavor for wine instead of for the current choice for spirits, which latter are extra destructive to the reason for real temperance, and loads of common-sense is expressed in friendly diction.

Definitions of wine are as a variety of as these of genius, and often simply as close to or as some distance, from the reality. Mr. Hawker asks, "What is Wine?" and reminds us that:

A flask of wine, like a bottle of ginger beer, includes alcohol, however it comprises many different issues in addition. initially approximately all its bulk contains rain-water, exquisitely filtered and distilled by means of the kindly sunlight and subtly enriched with power via the silent alchemy of Nature. the guy who drains an entire bottle of sound wine absorbs just a unmarried glass of alcohol: and it should always be remembered that the alcohol of usual wine differs from the alcohol of the chemist's laboratory up to a bee's honey differs from the chemist's saccharine or glucose. It follows, for this reason, brilliant wine-drinker ...knows rather well that his trusty beverage isn't really mere alcohol, yet alcohol changed and corrected by way of the opposite and extra ample elements of wine.

Then Mr. Hawker permits mild upon the pitfalls into which the green customer of wines is at risk of stumble by the hands of unscrupulous wine retailers and resort and eating place owners, and upon a variety of nefarious "tricks of (he trade." which aren't missing in crafty and ingenuity. all of it makes very friendly interpreting, as additionally do the different chapters on "Doctors and Wine" and at the wines of France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Australia and California. My readers will thank me for the advice in the event that they peruse Mr. Hawker's little quantity.
