One result of the new order unques

food, for countless meals are ordered
and 'either left untouched or also
slightly toyed with and mixed with
cigar and cigarette ashes by careless
people. At the better class restau

corresponding to the "property sand

a cooked, warm meal, the restric

The total amounts to more than one
