The News Engraving Company Makes all kinds engravings. Call on or write them, Springfield Illinois. The Delmonico Cafe and Buffet Thomas Steele, Proprietor. MR. STEELE has opened a CAFE and BUFFET at 107 South 8th street, which is very creditable both in th« appearance and in the quality of things served. We were shown through the place and everything is open, where all can observe that it is a first class place for everybody, who must be ladies and gentlemen while in there. In conversation with Mr. Steele, he informed us that he intends that this cafe be run first-class in every particular. It is a spacious room with linoleum on the floor signs on the wall read: ‘Hats off,’ ‘no loafing,’ and ‘no profane language. i nis is one of the most essential things. The care is to be open continuously, day and evening and waiters are employ, ed. Certain parts of the day music is rendered This can be as nice and as respectable a place as the New Port Cafe and Buffet in St. Louis and Mr. Steele assures all that it will be so conducted We are glad to see and hope he will have success. All that is in dispensable is that it be conducted as Mr. S.eele has begun. EVERYTHING served in a first-class cafe will be on hand. Toe place compares favorably with the Leland or the Illinois Cafes and the most reserved persons may visit the place without the least fear of molestation or embarrassment.
