THE FOOLISH WAITERS.
THE public ia, after all, a patient, indulgent, jimtico-loring pub
lic, with a quick sympathy for the man who ia getting the
worst of it, and a wish to see those who servo its needs and
pleasure well treated and happy. All along it haa beon more than
nail on the side of tho hotel and restaurant wAitera in their effort to
get better working conditions and better pa;-. But tho public is not
ell kinds of a fool. It ia a pretty koen judge of decency, fairness end
When the wrongs of the striking waiters found votce In the coun
sel of Joseph 0. Kttor "to make it unsafe for capitalist guests to eat"
the public heard with incredulous amazomcnt and indignation.
Now that the waiter applaud the advice of Miss Elizabeth Ourley
Prynn to make affidavits of the foulness of tho food they serve, to
"inform the guest who sit down to a dainty dinner that it daintiness
rose out of a rile spot like a lily out of a mud nool," and that it is
"one-fifth poison and four-fiftha covering up of poison," the public
ia not only indignant but thoroughly disgusted an well.
In the first place, it doee not believe these sickening tales. In
the second place, it begins to distrust the spirit that prompts them.
If the waiters axe foolishly and recklessly bent on sullying their own
nest, degrading themselves and their case, they are on the right road.
But let them expect no more sympathy.
WHERE ARE THE OLD-TIME WINTERS?
JANUARY half fdhe and where ia winter? Nothing yet even
approaching sero weather. The Hudaon is open. The river
boats ase still running to Albany. The graaa in Central Park
ia as green as if it were April. Cold waves are half-hearted affairs,
ashamed to hang about more than twenty-four hour. Europe has
had no severe weather. Black fog descended upon London two days
ago with "frost." But what the English call "frost" is often only a
mild 25 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The Atlantic, to bo sure, has been
breezy and reatless enough; but what has become of the famous old
land winters of bitter cold and terrible snows? What has happened
te our fino old Western blizzards that it used to make one ehiver only
to read about P
It looks aa if the oirRlaed world were being let off nowadays from
the winter rigors thai rattled the bones, froze the blood and chilled
the souls of its ancestors. In former times, winters in tho northern
hemisphere left their mark and were remembered for generations.
In old records of hard winters in the Middle Ages the race to
day hardly recognizes the planet it lives on. For example: In the
year 401 the Black Sea was entirely frozen over. In 462 tho Danube
1 ia swea. a ...
was rroten, so mat rneoaomer marcned on the ice to Swabia to
avenge hia brother's death. In 768 the cold was. so intense that the
Strait of Dardanelles and the Black Sea were entirely frozen over.
The enow, in some places, was fifty feet deep, and the ice van heaped
rn enen quantities on the cities as to cause the walls to fall down. In
SSA AJL- A ' ai T , - ,.
nnv sue xunavrc vh cnwrfiy iru7.cn ovnr. in DVi nntl RWfl the vines
were killed by the cold, and cattle died in their stalls. In 1067 the
eoM was so intense that roost of tho travellers in Germany wen
froaen to death on the road. Wine casks burnt and trees split bv
frost with an immense noise. In IV si tho bonnes in Austria were
completely buried in snow. In 1344 all tho rivers in Italy were
frozen. In 1468 tfhe winter was so severe in Flanders that the wine
wm cut with heitoheta to be distributed to the soldier. In 16H4
many forest trees and oaks in England were upljt with the frost. In
1091 the eold was so intense that starved wolves entered Vienna.
What has become of winters like these? TTave civilization and
coal scared them away, or is a kind Providence tetnnerinjr the wind
to a weakened and relaxed humanity?
UR genial Mayor now wishes to have hypocrisy taxed, lie
grows liberal in his old age.
