State Representative William Tudor

the above declaration anent the recent

"I believe that tipping degrades and
debases the man who takes the tip,"
said he, "and it places the man who
gives the tip in a class which is re
lated to that of bribery."
Under the Mississippi law any per
son giving a tip or "any hotel, restau

ploye accepting a tip" is liable to a fine
of from $."0 to $100 and a terra of Im
prisonment in default of payment of

considered a joke, but as the state sen
ators and representatives considered
it and discussed it pro and con opinion
changed and it passed both houses
"The man who does not give tips is
quickly marked," said Mr. ApMadoc.
"Why, just suppose, for instance,
that J. Ham Lewis were to have hiB
whiskers trimmed and fail to tip the
barber. If he ever went there again
his friends would not know him whey,
he emerged from the chair. '
