ABUSE OF THE STOMACH
A Keslaurant Observer Makes !ome
I was trying to dispose of a straw
berry breakfast and my morning pa
per at the same time a bout 11 o clock.
It was a public restaurant in Herald
Square, and the late breaKiasiers oe-
gan to become adulterated with early
lunchers. The world never stands
still in Herald iciuare. The kitchen
here shifts cooks, a new set of waiters
;o on at given hours, a change of
faces in the cashier s window that s
all. But men and women come and
;o at the little, clean, bare tables all
dav. while new forms and faces are
reflected from the mirored walls all
night. There are men just finishing
their supers before going to bed when
the early workers begin to pour in for
their breakfasts. There are break
fasts being ordered asthemidday bus
iness lunch is being bolted by hurried
hundreds. In short, there are break
fasts, lunches, dinners and supjiers be
ing served during every hour of the
day and night and no questions are
asked and no troublesomeexplanations
required as to the comer being too
early for the other.
Only in such a resort can one get a
realistic gilmpse of a great city. I
was thinking of this when a young
man carrying a dress suit came in
and took a seat opposite to me,
dering a strawberry shortcake and a
glass of iced tea. This served as an
appetizer, apparently, as he immedi
ately followed it with a lieefsteak.

vanished In-fore 1 had tinished my
strawlierries. and the young man's
place was taken by a sleek-looking
gentleman, who got a single egg with
brown bread and a glass of water,
upon the destruction of which he drew
from his rear coat-tail pocket a small
parcel, took therefrom a glass about
as big as a thimble, and poured some
sort of medicine into it. which he toss
