The Macadamized Biscuits with a
Flap on Top.
(uests at remote American hotels. con
ducted on the Youre-a-payih' plan, have no
doubt noticed, after a few weeks at the
house. a heavy feeling in the pit of the
stomach. At first tiis is mistaken for men
tal gloom, but this is an erroneous diaguosis.
It is a gastric gloom. It is induces by the
great hand-to-hand conflict between the
bomb proof biscuit of the hotel and eternal
justlce.
Eternal justice comes out on top, perhalu,
but she is in poor shape to tackle the next
one. These wads of gun cotton, plaster
paris and alum are met with at the hotel
where the crape is never taken off the door.
Death and baking powder biscuits are syn
onymous terms. The old-fashioned poet
used to picture death in the act of mowing
down his millions with a sc)the andt a
wappy-jawed snath, but now the bard conld
not be more vigorous in his language than
to my:
" Death slied a kotel biscuit at him.
And be sleptl
These mieadamized rolls are made now
with a flap on top. I notice, similar to the
flap on an old-fashioned pocket-book. The
hunting-ease biscuit is found to be superior
to the old style, which could be opened with
a nail. The present hotel roll-that Is. the
one we have in our midst-is made of con
demned flour that has been retfued on the
Indian seservations and turned over to the
War Department. This flour, with amalgam
filling and fire-proof works, makes a roll
that will resist the action of acids or the
grand jury.
One hotel man in a Western State showed
me three ets of false teeth that he had
caught with the same biscuit in six weeks
while the Legislature was in session. He
said that one man came out of the dining
room with a case knife in one hand and his
mouth in the other. Heseemed excited and
tried to talki, but could not make himself
understood, He paid his bill and went
away. Pretty soon a waiter brought in one
of those lay figures used on the bill of tfre
as rolls, anid in it they found a set of almost
new teeth.
