"Who can tell, madam? It may—it may not."
"And you couldn't take, say ten francs, for the
three of us?"
"No, madam, the faro is five francs each."
"Well, I don't think you're very accommodat
About this time other people with the intention
of really doing business broke in, and the last I
heard of the Reading lady was her remark that she
didn't intend to buy any pig in a poke, and why
should she spend fifteen francs for three tickets on
the sightseeing coach when she might not be able
to use them, etc., etc.
ABOUT nil that an American finds in the way of
■^*- bargains in Paris arc the gloves and horse
drawn taxienbs. Compared with Milan or London,
the prices on Paris gloves are not low, and yet they
are about two-thirds of what one pays in New York.
LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MAGAZINE
THE LINE OF WAITING HEN OUTSIDE THE BOWERY MISSION AT MIDNIGHT.
THE AMERICAN IN PARIS
Men's neckwear is of good material, and the pat
terns are in. st attractive. I had scarfs made to
order for seven francs apiece that would have cost
at least $3.50 in New York. There used to be a
tradition that silk Stockings and socks were very
cheap in Paris, but not —decidedly not so. They
arc far better for the money at any of the big de
partment stores hero. But the cabsthey are one
of the joys of Paris. A few years a-o a "single
drive "'anywhere in the city was thirty cents for
two or three people. The taxis have Increased tin*
rate somewhat, but even now it is a long drive that
amounts to a dollar. And the tip is from five to
ten cents, according to the length of the drive.
I will cite one instance of the cabs in Paris as
compared with New York. I had been to the the
litre with friends, and had accompanied them home
to their apartment a few blocks beyond the Arc de
Triomphe. It was after twelve, and as certain
branches of the subway do not run after midnight,
it was a case of taking a cab, or walking nearly
two miles to my hotel. With the memory of the ox-

tortious of New York cabmen I hesitated, but
finally decided to take a taxi. When I arrived at
my hotel, the "cochcr" and I figured up the faro.
It was 55 cents, and I gave him a tip of 10 cents,
lie was profoundly gratefultouched his hat to me
several times, and waited until he was sure I would
be admitted, and then drove away, his "Bo'soir,
m'sieu" echoing out of the darkness. A New York
cabman would have charged at least $2.25, and if I
had given him less than 39 cents, would have mad"
himself liable to arrest for blasphemy.
EVERY new visitor to Europe goes there with an
■*-' uncomfortable feeling regarding the matter
of tips. He has heard that he will be fleeced on
every side in this manner. But, let me say this:
The Europeans (and England should be included)
are mere amateurs in the matter of extorting tips.
New York waiters, cabmen and hotel employes are
the real thing when it comes to a "hold-up." Poor
old Europe has much to learn in this respect.
