"Waiting is much harder work than most
people think it in," Raid a popular restaura
teur to a News reporter. "Some men never
become proficient In it; they never can; and
henoe the niarkitt U never overcrowded with
good waiters. Barring the summer hotel
naaon, waiters of a certain stamp are always
to be had, but this supply is never such as to
f re vent an able man from getting a place,
t seems easy, I AupixMo, to the publio for a
man to take an ordur and briiiR in the vict
ual, but there are many difficulties and re
quirements incident tn waiting that are com
monly overltiokod. There are few places In
which more rvochcts and foibles are exhibited
than in an eating room, and a waiter has to
frrn much of human nature and school him
self accordingly to give wtisfaction.
"The patron of a restaurant is the Great I
Am. He Is the one to please, and if he kicks
' against anybody, save the cook, it is the
waiter. A pleasant address, a good memory,
promptness and deftness, thereforo, are prime
requisites for the waiter. Nobody wants an
iU natural waiter, yet a-large ratio of the
guesta are moro or less inconsiderate in their
demands. I n case of dispute or dissatisfaction
we always have to side with the guest, though
we may know tlmt the waiter was in no wise
to blame. -
"On complaint of patrons of my establish
ment I have actually had at times to change
waiters to other parts of the room, and even
lay them olT for a few days waiters, too,
whom I knew to Ihj among the best In my
employ. A littlo clumsiness, forgctfulneas
or confusion In distributing the food to the
guests often bring stijjhtly deserved rebukes,
ami woe betide the waiter who incurs the ill
will of the employes behind the screen, for
the promptness of his service is Madly im
paired and mischief is sure to follow. In a
certain sense the waiters are the butts of an
establishment. Many of the proprietors'
faults are saddled on their shoulders, and
many a malediction is hurled at the cooks
over their beads."
"How do the merits of white and colored
waiters compare i"
"I do not think that colored waiters equal
white waiters, though this may be a mere
fancy of mina One thing is certain colored
waiters are the more easily managed. They
are satisfied with less, ami will stand more.
As a rule, a good white waiter can command,
say, fi a week more than a colored man of
the same ability and experience. Seven dol
lars or $S a week ami board will satisfy a col
ored waiter better than $10 will a white
man, and the colored man will ask fewer
privileges. N.'groes are less ambitious than
white men, more subservient, and hence
more easily Imposed upon. They ore satisfied
with poorer fsre, and will grumble less at
long hours and extra duty. That, I think,
and not the fnet that, they have any special
qualifications for the work, is the reason why
so many colored waiters ore employed. "
A WAITER WORTU $i,000.
"Do waiters usually s?ay in the business"
"Yes, till about middle life. You will
rarely find a waiter moro than 40 years of
age. At about that age they drift into other
linos of occuation. Many become barten
ders, others porters or janitors, and the like.
I have been surprised at. the number of col
ored waiters who llnd their way to the va
riety stugo. You fcjiow they are a hail fel
low well met ca--s and full of fun. Few of
them save aiiythimr: they rather are given
to improvideueo. Still, I have known. waiters
to work themselves up till they have become
hotel or restaurant proprietors. I know one
man, John Brejinen, who served mo as waiter
for years, and who is today worth t-'O.GX).

"American waiters havo to content with
certain difficulties tlmt European waiters
know nothing ubout," stud another well
known hotel proprietor. "Europeans are dif
ferent from Americans. They have become
leisurely in habit. They have further learned
an art comparatively nre In America the
art of eating. They nre more given to wlno
and liquor drinking nt meals thun we. Hence,
as one might nutunilly expect, tho stamp of
the people has been impressed upon the wait
ing required. In the )ld World one of our
counter restaurants, with its toe trending
and elbow Jostling, would bo a curiosity,
visited once as a frenk, but shunned after
ward. A European waiter, accustomed to
easy going habits, would lose his head and
fall where one of our waiters would l per
fectly calm and self possessed.
"No class of people is more pushed in Its
work than American waiters. I'll warrant
that fully 50 per cent, of nil the people who
come into my establishment give a special In
junction to tho waiters to hurry; and yet
with all the rush they expect the highest de
gree not only of skill but of courtesy on the
part of those who serve them. Few Ameri
cans visit Europe without complaining of the
execrably slow service. The fact Is, they
carry over their American hahitu and expect
of European waiters whnt they are wont to
exact from waiters at home. Hence they are
disappointed and disgusted.
"Tipping has been condemned, but, I think,
altogether too harshly. It is a universal cus
tom that has come to stay. I not only counte
nance It, but I favor it. I think that about
10 per cent, of the value of a check is the
right thing to give tho waiter, and if it be
given it will insure service that no ruling of
the proprietor can effect." Chicago News.
The dress sack, or Cowes or Tuxoko coat,
or whatever it may be called, is intended to
be worn only (and is only so worn by gentle
men of taste) when a display of shirt sleeves
might be open to objection, when a smoking
jacket would be too tuggestivo of luxurious
dissipation, or when, though ladies in demt
dress are present, tho regular dress coat is
not Imperatively necessary. A few who re
spect the eternal fitness of things have raised
the cry in really fashionable circles: "Down
with the dress sack," but they are unreason
able. The dress sack is an elegant and useful
garment when it is not offensively obtruded
where It has no right to appear, and it fills a
long felt want. It is the connecting link be
tween elegant neglige and elegant evening
dress, and should l much more extensively
used than it Is at present. Hut it can bo worn
for full dress no more appropriately than
boxing gloves can be worn at a wedding.

BEAUTY VS. JGUNESS.
One Time When' the Latter Had Very
Moeh the Better of It.
The late Lord 1 "em broke was one of the
most eccentric of men, and bis vagaries some
times made one doubt his sanity Some forty
years ago Doche, the great French actress,
was at the zenith of her beauty and fame,
and all London had gone mad about ber.
Both Louts Napoleon afterward Napoleon
IU and the late Lord Pembroke were in
love with her, and it to recorded that the fair
enchantress did not know which to choose.
"You must do as you like, of course," said
the prince; "I cannot marry you, because my
name does not belong to me, but to a dynasty ;
nor can 1 afford to lavish so mucb money on
you as Lord Pembroke can; but I can tell
you what I will do if you will consent to re
fuse his suit. 1 will protniso you never to
marry, even if I become emperor, and I will
settle 1,000 a year on you for life now, and
make you a countess and a millionaire if ever
1 bocome emperor. "
That was not good enough for Doche, who
had no boliof in the imperial dreams, and who
gambled to such a terriblo extent that a
thousand pounds, and double that sum,
would slip through her flngors in a Week So
she said no, and gave Lord Pembroke to un
derstand that if he were inclined to be gen
erous, she might not turn a deaf ear to his
sighs. The capricious Frenchwoman had,
however, heard of the extravagance of the
lazy English "milord," whom she knew to be
madly in love with her, so she thought it
politic to play fast and loose with him, in
hopes that he would, in a moment of passion
ate exasperation, lay something like half
bis fortune at her feet.
She went too far, however. Day after day
she would accept bis lordship's invitations to
supper, and always at the last moment send
an excuse. "At last," Lord Pembroke one
day said to the late Ixrd Clanricarda, who
used to tell the story, "1 am tired of this
folly. I am giving a supper to night at Rich
mond, and I have invited Doche. If she
comes before II I will give ber 10,000; if
she comes before 12 1 will give her 2,000,
but if she comes after 12 1 wont recieve her,
and if she does not come at all I will give to
morrow 20,000 to tho usliest woman In
London, and the one our Docho bates the
most Scbaeffer, the dauscuse."
Doche never came to the supper, so the fol
lowing morning Lord Pembroke sent one of
the loading Bond street jewelers to her house
with the message that as his lordship had de
cided on offering diamonds to the amount of
30,000 to Mile. Schaeffer, and as he knew
Mile. Doche was a connoisseur in diamonds,
he would be obliged if she would select up to
that amount such stones as she might think
would suit her friend Doche, when she had
beard the man out and fairly grasped the sit
uation, boxed the Jeweler's ears and had hys
terics. But this did not prevent the trades
man from clambering up the four pairs of
stairs of a little house in Ieicester square,
where he found Mile. Schaeffer washing her
stockings, and telling her of the golden shower
which was alxmt to fall mxn her. She
Schaeffer was hideously ugly and verv
stupid, but she managed to entangle Lord
I embroke s heart, somehow, and he gave her
all the money he could, and had not the prop
erty "been entailed would havo given her
everytlJlig. A distinguished French family,
"De Montgomerie" (Earl of Pembroke and
Montgomery), the members of which aro
well known in the "high life" of the French
capital, is the result of this strange Infatua
tion. So poor Doche lost both her French
and English lover. Had sho accepted Prince
Louis Napoleon's offer it might, perhaps,
have made a difference today in the map of
Europe; had she not trifled with tho English
earl it certainly would havo made a con
siderable difference in his fortune. Town

If you propose to do as the Romans do, you
will have neither ojien fireplace nor stove,
says a correspondent of Tho Philadelphia
Telegraph. You wi!J spend about $o and buy
a brasciere. A pan or plato stands upon
three logs about four inches from the floor,
and the cover to this is generally dome shaped,
about a foot and a halt in height, of polished
brass in ornamental diiign. In the pan part
you put about a soup pSuteful of carbonclla
or gas extracted charcoal, and on top of that
some live cinders. You then fan the cinders
until the coko is all iguiteil. Oneo Ignited, it
burns itself. It burns very slowly, and you
sit above tho emlxrs, coaxing warmth and a
headache, until tho upper part of your anat
omy to chilled through. You then find it
necessary, in order to get warm, to go out
for a walk or go to bed.
This to the chief Italian method of house
warming for rich end poor alii On the
same principle, there is another instrument
called the scaldino, which is made of terra
cotta, is bowl shaped, and has a base of about
the diameter of a coffoe saucer. Live coals
are placed in this. It to likewise a favorite
of both rich and poor. You may see the
poor match vender huddled up in the corner
of a church step with her scaldino on her
knee, warming her hands; or find the cozy
little porcelain bowl under the princess' feet
as she receives you in her drawing room, with
her fur cape over her shoulders and her
hands in her muff.

Marriage No' a Failure.
A New View of this great Question which
shows hoic Ladies may retain the
Love of their IIuMinrids.
No woman who is unattractive in person, mind,
or disposition can hope to interest or hold men.
Bad complexion, dull eyes, a listless nature never
dd or can atiract mankind. On the other hand
how many women with clear skin, beneath which
the blood can be seen throbbing wi'h health,
bright eyes and life and animation in I't.rj move
ment, make the worlds blessing to iheir hnshaniis
brothers, lovers or friends. The secre! of clear
akin, bright eyes and animation is good circula
tion of the lbood. When the blood is slow the
person Is stupid. Keep the blood moving. B.:t
how? There is mit o le way and that is to help
Na ureJy a gentle stimulant.
Exercise Is a splendid stlmnlant bnt it is almost
Impossible for ladiea to take tbe Mud oj exercis
that will produce health an! heauty. But the
blood must be kept moving, an i the dirco-erv
which has done more to add health and beauty
than any other know i cause is Duffy's Pure Malt
Whiskey. This great remedy stimulates hra th
ill. It is not an intoxicant. Thousands of
women who were once tired, depressed and dis
couraged are now in perfe t health at d beauty
entirely through Its use. Many prominent tem
perance ladles have given i' their hearty endor-e-mi
nt, and clergym- n and priests in every promi
nent city use and recommend it. threat care
should be ahown in bnyin r only the cunine. for
no bottled whiskey has the wonderful qualities
which are posse-sed bv Duffv'a.
When ladies are kept bright and attractive and
hnahands are considerate aud kind, few marriages
win n- iauures.
