Why Waiters Should Not raid Extra
It is to the selfishness and thought
lessness of the rich, that the growth of
"tipping" is mainly due. But, while
the result is not oppressive to them, it
has become a serious tax on persons of
moderate incomes who travel much or
take their meals in restaurants. Ihe
man who can afford to pay
from $2 to 5 for his dinner does not
Doiss the quarter, which is the lowest
that he will give athe waiter. To the
man or woman of moderate means who
takes three meals a day at a restaurant
nrhere the service is sufficiently good to
be agreeable the necessity of paying
thirty cents a day for "tips" is a serious
addition ato the expense of living. If
his three meals cost from $1.50 to $9
the increase is from 16 to 20 per cent.
Over $100 a year compulsorily spent in
"tips" is a sum which, if saved, would
maketo many people the difference be
tween continual pinching and a fair de
gree of comfort. Ten cents is the low
est "tip" that can be given in a good
second-cXara restaurant. Now, if a
man has a'Shop and a glass of beer or
a cup of tea or coffee for lunch at the
cost of thirty-five or forty cents he is
paying twenty-five per cent, additional
for the privilege of giving the restau
rant-keeper a large profit, as the cost
of the meal, with all expenses added, is
at the highest not more than two
thirds of the amount charged.
The necessity for "tipping" is ever
on the increase. Even at the lunch
counter down-town where the hurried
eater sits upon a swinging stool, it is
customary to "tip" the waiter, and
Borne patrons also "tip" the carver.
In the cafes of the large hotels, where
a il abnormally Ixiglx charge is made for
liquid refreshment, the waiter who
carries an order from the bar to a table
now expects a tip. If the system ex
tends much further the bar-tender who
draws a glass of Deer will want ten
cents instead of five.
The public has become so accustomed
to the neccessity of "tipping" that
while there is much private grumbling

either so an stint
in other directions, or patronize cheap
and uncomfortable restaurants where
"tips." are not expected. There will be
no public move against this practice,
because people who banded themselves
in opposition to it would foolishly fear
to "be called, mean. Hotel and. restaur
ant keepers claim it is impossible to
stop the system, because some selfish
people would always try to get the bet
ter service by continuing the "tip," and
therefore they (the proprietors) ar
only acting wisely in taking advantage
of the public's weakness. This is a
worthless argument, for the experience
of nearly all the best clubs where
"gratuities to servants are absolutely
forbidden" is that equally good atten
tion is paid to all members. Selfish
people would be the first to cease giving
"tips" when they found that so doing
did not bring any advantage.
Reform is only to be hoped for
through, the action, ot hotel and restau
rant keepers who will possess enough
intelligence to see that larger profits
can be made by ridding the public of
this, to many, almost intolerable bur
den. Any man who will start a good
restaurant or hotel in which there shall
be a strict and ridgidly enforced rule
against "tips" will almost assuredly
have more patronage than he can ac
commodate. It would need only a few

It gives me great pleasure to add my tes
timony in favor of AXLCOCK'S POROUS
PLASTERS. Last October I had a very se
vere attack of lumbago and suffered untold
agony could not turn in bed or get in any
position without assistance, and with pains
almost unbearable the folks suggested
ALLCOCK'S POROUS PLASTERS. A S soon as
possible I had one applied to the small oi
my back, and to my great surprise I experi
enced almost instant relief I continued
wearing it until entirely cured, and am hap
py to say that I have not had the slfj -1
symptoms of Lumbago since. They area
wonderful and valuable plaster for Lum
bago, and I take much pleasure in recom
mending them. W.-.S. PHILLIPS.

Would Burn his Shirt.
Metellus of Macedon was evidently a sly
old fellow, and used to say "he would burn
his shirt if it knew his true intentions."
Were he living to-day, he wou'd no doubt
burn his shirt to get a bottle of Alien's Iron
Tonic Bitters, if he couldn't "catch on" in
any other way, for it is well known that the
old fellow was a confirmed dyspeptic and
longed for a remedy for the chronic de
rangement of the liver and system. All

recommended her to try for inflammatory rheuma

girl was in terrible agony. In the midst of the pr.in

result the swelling was reduced and she became

and she is now able to be around the house. Hib

ever since. Have consulted the leading physicians
of this city and Ann Arbor, and all pronounced my
