The Bell Hop. \
Here is the bell hop doing the t
traveling bag dive. You've carried .<
them all the way from the depot and <
still feel pretty healthy, but as soon '<
as you get in the door he bounces <
on them, gets a strangle hold, and <
marches triumphantly, 25 feet up to j
the desk. He waits for the key, takes {
you up to your room, opens the door, i
turns on all the lights, opens the 5
r~ !
windows, starts the water going, and i
does everything else but take a cou- j
pie hours' sleep 1 or you. Then he t
waits at the door with an "is there J
anything else, sir?" and the "anything j
else" means you loosen up with a i
fattened fraction of a case note, f
Then that's the last you see of him 5
until you come In the hotel again. ;
Bell hops are a stingy lot. We've ;
never seen one yet that would give J
you a pass on his r*llroad. A few ij
years ago when you had a dime, you \
immediately thought of a bell hop, t
hut today the movies have beat him J
to It. Now If you give him a dime \
he waits for the rest of the change. I
