catch it from me, however; at least, I

?Delicacies That oxo Thrown Away.
The proprietor of a fashionable city
restaurant calls attention to the enor
mous waste of excellent food in establish
ments like his own, as well as in hotels,
first-class , boarding-houses, ? ancL' many
private houses. His estimate is that fully
one-third of all the food prepared is
wasted. Of boiled hams, legs bfj mutton,
and tongues, only the finest slices are
placed before guests. Theiike--is true of
roast game, beef, pork, , and mutton. ?
t Large bunches-of celery are bought each j
.norni;:g in the markets, but only the j
best stalks are placed on the j
?able; and of fliese only the j
.:hokest parts are ordinarily_ eaten. Asa j
rule, not one person in ten eat all of any J
sind of food that is ordered. If three
chops .are served, one, is left untouched. |
Some, will take half n. dozen grapes from !

Tlie like is true of loaves of bread of all

aarson eats more than half the cheese
that is served to him, but as the slice is
broken it can not bo served again. Many,

cinds of soup or chowder are prepared,
i:ilf of which remains unsold. The quan
