CHERUBS OF THE HOTELS.
ruciiitiy IVays of tlie Mature Children
of the Ton-n Juvcullo "Wretchedness.
Tbcrc is fomctlung uncanny about theso
mature children of the town. I was at (ho
Windsor hotel at dinner with somo friends a
tlioi t lime ago when a pompous little woman
strode dovrn the long dining room, followed
- lj two little girls hand in hand. Neither of
them was more than 9 years old. They set
tied themselves in their chairs, folded their
fckhmy litllo hands and then proceeded to
stare about them and comment upon their
fellow-diners. The elder of the two children,
after looking intently at a' maiden laxly of
rather noticcablo attiro at an adjoining table,
turned to her mother and said conuwsedly:
"What a really startling old fnunp that i,
'Which one, dearP asked the ttrict cli.se'
plinarian of u mother.
"Tlie cheerful guy beside the bald-headed
man over there."
'Oh, yes,'' paid the mother, with a well
bred smile, "I've seen her befoi-e. But don'fc
be fo slangy, Clarion. Have moro tor.e.
Order your ilimicr now and Fee that you let
puree and lamb alone. It's too rich for you."
Then to the waiter: "Take her tiller, An
gusto." The waiter leaned obsequiously over tho
child, Mho was studying the menu with a
frown on her little face.
-Xo soup, Ogecsr," sho said intently, "but a
bit of weakfishwiUi egg sauce, an' A kidney
omelette not flat, you know, but liiee and
puffy and artichokes "'
"Ver" Sony, Mees Maryon, but there is no
"There, I thought so,' .said the girl, slam
ming the card down on the table and biting
her thin lips. "It's the meet provoking thing I
Whenever 1 set my heart ""
"We have somo green corn '
"Eat it yourself P said the child iA a huff.
The waiter was quite unmoved, lie seemed
to be accustomed to such ebullitions of temper
and went on suavely taking the orders of the
others, v. hile Miss Marion sat the picture of
overdressed, pampered and pouting discon
tent. And tho children of tho Hats. Who ever
hears of these shy and melancholy littlo be
ings who speak in whispers and have lccn
bullied, reprimanded and scolded by servants,
tenants, janitors and parents until tJiey glido
about like shadows and dare not laugh for
fcarof diiturhmg conic one? Tho joyousness
and life of childhood have been eruvhed out
of Hum. And the children of tho boarding
house, who live under a perpetual protest
from the grim and snappy landlady and tho
testy boarder of tho "first iloor front," who
must have the hou.-o quiet so as to enjoy her
afternoon nap. ZvcarJy every boarding house
that advertises now puts forth tho fiat "2vo
children,' and tho little ones nrcso thoroughly
cowed that they are as pitiful in mien aj in
body. Then there are the children of the
tenements and tho scums. There is no end
to juvenile wretchedness here. For a place
that children should bo kept out of, commend

A friend of mine the other day cams to
Fettle for his night's lodging at a bedbuggy
little hole in the wall near the railway station
here in Neuebatel called tho Hotel des Alps.
In addition to the charge for apartment, ser
vice, lights, etc. , was the item, "Eh dejeu
ner." I ;ill put into plain English that
"But I didn't order any breakfast.''
"That was no fault of the house, mon
sieur."' "Do you mean to tell mo that you wMi to
charge me for breakfast I neither ordered nor
"flic brakfnst wa prepared all the same,
"You pretend that you provide a regular
tabic d'hoto breakfast every morning and
hai-"efor it whether 'your guests take it or
Yes, monsieur. See tho mem? Hero it
is,'' and the linn, yet polite, landlord pro
duced his regular "a la carle." "My f i ior.d
turned it iijh:de down. Thoti ho carefully
periled it. Then he said:
"How mu'li of this do you servo as your
regular breakfast p
Yuytbing you lil.v, monsieur.'
"Very well. Bcccipl the bill, and, as 1 am
topny lorn breakfast, please God I will eat
