CAUSE OF HIS BAD TLMPER.
The UnKlishtnao Most Tie Perpetually
Tipping; All Kinds of Servants.
A rich Tlostc.nian, who has been
spending almost unlimited leisure in
traveling on two hemispheres, says
that he notices a wholesale tendency
to reduction and system in tips. People
travel so-much more than they used to
do and are served by 60 many more
employes that some sort of a regula
tion ia necessary. On the continent,
where waiters pay for their places,
though the landlords make a separate
charge for their service, the tip is
regulated and all but Americans know
it, the local tariff being one sou to the
franc one cent in twenty. Kobady
grumbles at this.
The Englishman on his own island,
pays six pence for everything to every
body, and is insulted if h? doesn't. As
a he has to fee waiters, porters, clerks.
chambermaids, guides, vergers, police
men, dukes, barkeepers and casual
citizens, it is no wonder that he has
settled into a confirmed grumbler and
can't stop grumbling all the time he
is away from home.
But in this country it has been get
ting worse than anywhere in Europe.
Half a do'dar is no unusual tip to give
to a man who serves you with a sloppy
dinner in a place where you are pay
ing $4 a day board, where the waitors
receive fair wages besid s their food
and lodging; "but," savs the Boston :an.
Kjldimes are general currency for tip
"In one Southern hotel a negro
waiter came to me at my very first
meal and said: 'I only gets $20 a
month, boss People generally allows
me a dollar a week." I gave him
nothing. At another hotel down there
the waiters change tables at every
meal, so as to break up this "striking"
A STRANCE CASE.
Cauterizing a Young Girl's Tonsils ISrlngs
Her Out of a Long Sleep.
For the past five months a girl of 13,
of a good family, has 1 een lying in a
state of complete lethargy in a private
hospital at Vesinet, outside Paris. The
sleeping maiden hab recently been re
stored to consciousness by Dr. Reffe
geau, who had charge of her, in a
peculiar manner. She usually lay
asleep with her mouth wide open and
her throat exposed to view. The
physician noticed that one of the ton
sils was enlarged, so he resolvtnl to
cauterize it with a red hot iron, an
operation which would 1h b.'iu'ficial
to the patient, even if it did not have
the effect of terminating her cata
After the iron had done its work,
the girl, who had been previously in
sensible to the priekling of pins, man
ifesteii uuniistakaMe signs of p;iin and
tittered a feeble cry. From that mo
ment site liogan to return gradually to
cousci msiiess, and at lust awoke, say
ing to the nun who was taking care of
her, "Where am 1?" The patient had
no recollection or notion of anything
that had taken plac during the five
months in which she was asleep, and
manifested the greatest surprise when
told about her extraordinary long
slumber. She is now said ta Ik- in a
normal state of health, full of spirits,
and eager to make up for her long
TOUCH ON TRAMPS.
A Boston Suburban Housekeeper Makes
Kfiective- Tseof Croton Oil.
A clever woman residing in one of
the suburbs of Boston has hit upon an
ingenious way of ridding herself of
the annoyance of tramps. Tor a long
time she had been overrun by these
searchers after an eleventh-hour job
with twelve hours' pay. At first, from
an inherent kindliness, she was wont
to serve them with hot coffee and a
fairly good meal, but the tramps in
creased so in numbers that this mode
soon became not only expensive, but
burdensome as a matter of labor alone.
Added to this was also the loss of
small articles, which some of these
tramps, ungrateful for past or present
favors, would purloin, without ever so
much as, 'by your leave."
What to do to get rid of this gentry
was a puzzle. The old saying that
"man has a will, but woman has a
way," found exemplification, however,
in the present instance.
What did she do? Well, the idea
became lodged in her brain that, in
orUer to drive and keep these tramps
away, the premises must be made ob
noxious to them. So she quietly put
some croton oil in the coffee that she
dispensed to these gentlemen of leisure
every morning. She soon had the
pleasure of seein?, day after day,
fewer and fewer of her former tramp
Whether, as this shrewd matron re
marked t a neighbor, to whom she
confided her riddance remedy, the
tramps ever really discovered what
"worried" the coffee or not, she has
never been able to tell, but they do
not come to her for drink and suste
nance any more.
COING TO FIX HIM.
A Tempting Ad."
A Southern paper publishes the fol
lowing advertisement: "Wanted By
a young lady, aged nineteen, of pleas
ing countenance, good figure, agree
able manners, general information and
varied accomplishments who has
studied everything from the creation
to crochet, a situation in the family
of a gentleman. She will take the
head of his table, manage his house
hold, scold his servants, 'muse his
babies, check his tradesmen's bills,
accompany him to the theatre, cut the
leaves of his new book, sew on his
buttons, warm his slippers, and
generally make his life happy. Apply
in the first place to Miss , Hickory
Grove, Ua., and afterwards to papa,
on the premises."
He KrotlgLt His All.
The solemn thoughts aroused by the
service in a Maine church a few Sun
days ago were quickly dispelled just
after the benediction, when a crazy
man, who has since been taken to the
Augusta hospital, met the good pastor
at the fnot of the pulpit stairs and
producing a good-sized turnip from hia
coat pocket pnssctl it to him. saving:
"Silver and gold I have none, but
such as I have will I give unto thee."
The pastor accepted the donation with
due seriousness and never once inti
mated that there was anything funny
about the affair, but other folks had
to laugh just the same.
A Hoy's Inquiring Mind Grasps a Broad
Assertion as a Fact.
Parents cannot be too careful how
they answer the apparently trivial
questions of their children. It would
almost seem as if a child's dictionary
were a necessity of the age. Here is
"Pa," said a little chap to his father,
"what does a man mean when he says,
I'll fix you?' "
"Means that he'll do him up," ans
wered the father, briefly.
"But, then, what does 'do him up'
"Bother! You ask too many ques
tions, child. It means that he is go
ing to kill him."
The little fellow was silen'r d for
the time, lut, as events proved, he
thought over the subject. Soou after
he was taken ill, and the family doc
tor being absent, a strange physician
was summoned. Left alone with him
for a few moment's, the little fellow
began to ask questions.
"Going to cure me. doctor?" he in
quired. "Yes, yes, my little man," said the
doctor, who was preparing a dose,
"I'm going to fix you."
What was the doctor's surprise to
see a small, white-robed figure dart
from the bed and make a bee lim- for the
door, through which he disappeared.
The astonished medical man followed
him and found him sobbing in his
mother's arms. To- her he was re
lating his fears that the doctor in
tended to "fix" him in the sens that
his father had defined the word to him
a few weeks befor:.
