It is at this time that the accumulated
mitLminmer inquiries of correspondents
Bhould be attended to, and I hasten to
dispose of one, meantime apologizing for
the delay in answering several which
were received as early as April last.
Tete-a-tote, Hyde Park, Cook county,
Bis. The Savoy hotel is situated on the
Victoria embankment, between Charing
Cross and Waterloo bridge, opposite
Cleopatra's Needle, in London. It is ad
vertised &s the Ilotel de Luxe of the
world, also the hotel de trop, I pre
sume, although I would not care to say
that for publication.
KYE'S HAIR DRESSING.
It is an English hotel with a French
accent. It is under the keen eye of R.
D'Oyly Carte, who takes his meals there
also. A great many eminent people stop
there while in London buying their fall
groceries. The Right Honorable the
Earl of Latham is a director of the
hotel, as is also Sir Arthur Sullivan. It
is no uncommon thing to see Sir Arthur
at the depot when the club train from
Paris gets in, calling out the Savoy hotel
in a rich, rotund voice. The earl stays
about the house more and helps D'Oyly
wait on the table.
The Marqnis of Granbury is on the
restaurant committee, and gets many a
bright new shilling for his brisk and
prompt attention to guests. Everything
is French at the Savoy except the prices.
They are tropical and grow to a great
height. The price at the cafe complet
servi dans le rpstaurant et salle a man
ger is one-and-six. If you have not et
any salle a manger it does not make any
The general manager and traveling
auditor of the hotel is Monsieur C. Ritz,
who used to run the Grand hotel at
Monto Carlo; also the Bald Eagle house
at Cannes and the Ding Dong house at
Baden Baden. The acting manager and
haut tong slinger is Monsieur Echenard,
of the Tooleries, in Paris. Monsieur is
not a part of his name, but is used to
give him an air of dejeuner, I presume.
You can souper dans le restaurant a la
carte, and you can breakfast a prix fixe
in the 6alle a manger for four sbillin',
and I claim that this is cheap enough.
Smoking is allowed in the salle a man
ger between 3 and 5 o'clock and after
8:30 p. m., but you must not leave your
dog in the manner. It is not posseeble,
as we say at la Morgue.
There is a tine hair dresser's saloon at
the Savoy under the charge of the Messrs.
Hill & Co.. of Old Bond street. I got
my hair dressed there every morning
before I went down to play long terrace
with the Guelphs. Hill does the shav
ing and Messrs. scrambles the hair.
The Savoy, it is claimed, is Incombus
tible; so are the cigars you get in the
manger also. A pleasing and very thrifty
lavatory, with hot and cold water, is run
in connection with tho hotel at a mod
erate price per lav.
In the manger one day I pointed out
on the bill of fare a breakfast that came
to fonr shilliu', and told the garcon to
give it to me. I spoke in English, such
as we use on State u Island, for I knew I
was in London, a place which gets its
style and pronunciation largely from
Staten Island anyway, so I spoke it
slowly and distinctly, with that rich
tonsilitis flavor which is supposed to go
with the London pronunciation, but he
did not understand mo, for he was
French. Had he been otherwise he
would have been discharged. He was
not en rapport with me at alL He said
something alont "companee," and I told
him I did not expect company at all,
though of conrse folks might drop in at
any time. My latch string, as well as
my hired girl, was generally out, so they
would be welcome.
He shook his head and went away.
Then he came back and hovered around
me, like a hornet on a hot day around a
full blooded and juicy little primary
schooL I thought ho doubted my
financial powers, so I showed him
how I was rated by R. G. Dun &
Co., and also planted down consid
erable means on the table in pale Bank
of England "fi' pun' " notes, which al
ways looked to mo like specimens of
Spencerian penmanship of the full arm
movement variety, and which never
seemed to me like money at all.
He went into a brief catalepsy and
then started after Sir Arthur Sullivan,
who asked me in English, with great
difficulty, however, what the trouble
was. I told him that I had ordered
from the bill of fare for breakfast and
offered to pay for it, but I could not
seem to get on. I had never gone hun
gry in Paris or Ireland; but here, where
the English language was supposed to
be about tho only thing that led a per
fectly purer life, I could not be under
stood sufficiently to keep the wolf from
Sir Arthur asked me to point out what
I had ordered. I remembered the price,
and so put my finger on the style of
break'tast that four shillin' would buy.
It was as follows: "Idem servi dans les
appartements." I did not know what it
was, of course, but I knew that I had
roughed it and eaten salt pork and ante
lope straight for two weeks, till I got
so that if you shook a red rag at me I
would bleat and run four miles, and so
I thought that a little idem with servia
on it, and then dance to my apparte
ments, would just hit my rather delicate
Sir Arthur then told me that I was
erroneous. The order I had given, he
said, was for "ditto served in the pri
vate rooms." Ditto, of course, meant
that I Could get the same breakfast as
the one descriled just above it for four
shillin. This was so clear that I thank
ed Sir Arthur and he went away. Look
ing at the item above it I found that it
read, "Dejeuner alaFrancaise a la carte
servi dans le Grand restaurant (voyez le
menu de jour) do 1 1.0 a 3.0 heuresJ"
I told Sir Arthur as I passed out that 1
was not well at all, and that the ride
across the channel had knocked me

horizontally and perpendicularly and
diagonally,- so that I guessed I would
omit breakfast a prix fixe, or a la carte,
or salle a manger. I then went out to a
little hole in the wall and got a good
breakfast for one-and-six, and when I
gave the waiter a sixpence for his atten
tion he was so overcome that he almost
begged me to walk on him and see how
grateful his system would feel to ray feet.
Dogs are only admitted to the hotel
on proper indorsement. A letter from
the pastor is preferred. They cannot
remain, however, after they have broken
over any of the rules of the house.
The board of control invite complaints,
it is said (unless they are chronic com
plaints, of course), and ask everybody to
report to the bureau every case where
guests have been fatally injured by at
tendants, so that luggage may be disposed
of at best market prices.
The Savoy is a good hotel, however.
joking aside, and the French language
is the most difficult matter to cope with
of anything in the house. Maj. James
B. Pond, who went over to secure Stan
ley for America, recently stopped at the
Savoy. He and V illiam Carey, of The
Century, together with Villers, the art
ist, sat in the hotel cafe one evening
ready to eat, and in fact with their order
in and partially filled. Directly one of
the party decided beforo beginning to
order a small slug of rye whisky. He
made the garcon understand it through
Mr. Villers, who talks French with great
ease. Noticing as the garcon was about
to start out that he had no butter he
told him also to bring some butter. After
some pleasant persiflage, bon homme
and raccoonter on the part of the gen
tlemen the garcon returned with a nice
thin glass of ryo whisky, floating on top
of which was a gob of surprised and
terror stricken butter.
Most all foreign people who have not
traveled avoid being surprised at any
thing an American orders, and try
cjuiekly to fill his order. They are led to
believe that the American likes espe
cially a searching drink, and that any
thing which will make him enivre with
out loss of time is what the rough and
tough cuss, with his trunks full of moss
agates, scads and scalps, is most joyously
in search of. This is a mistake.
Man is constantly misjudging his
kind. We misjudge the foreigner; we
think he will be interested entirely in us
and ourselves; we forget that he feels
some interest in himself and his pros
pects. That is one way we misjudge the
foreigner, overlooking the fact that "the
greatest bore is the mau who persistently
talks about himself while we desire to
talk about ourselves."
We also overdo in our efforts to aston
ish people. We try to astonish our own
people here with tho growth of our town,
our public school and our court house.
We lie about the phenomenal growth of
our town and calmly prevaricate alxnit
the number of our inhabitants till the
census is taken and we are disgraced.
Then we lay it to the slothful enum
erator. Mr. Edmund Russell, the Delaartist,
misjudged the foreigner a few weeks
ago, also. He thought that what the
English people wanted was realism, so
he gave them some that he was not using

Mr. Russell clothed himself at a very
slight cost and spoke his piece. When
he went away the air was so chill that
the Delsartian goose pimples stood out
all over him like Etruscan warts that
have been suddenly called up by the
shaker to give a rising vote on some
thing regarding their salary.
Mr. Russell is rather proud of his fine
figure, and lias had himself caste several
times, but never with so much expression
and force as he was cast forthwith after
his recitation. The hired man threw Mr.
Russell's clothes to him from the rear
window, and he dressed himself behind
a quick set hedge with one hand while
he kept away a well fanged dog with

Deafnsis Can't bs Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed foiever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
an; case of deafness caused by catarrh
that we cannot cure by taking Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Bend fur circulars, free.
