Elmhirsl Motel Waiters Oo Out
at Noon -Service is Hardly
Saturday morning the manage
ment of the Elmhirst Hotel ex
perienced quite a little strike in the
walking out of four of the employ
ees of the dining hall and kitchen
The trouble was brought about
by the influence of one of the wait
tresses, who becoming dissatisfied
with restraints placed upon her
jurisdiction in the kitchen and din
ing department, induced three of
her fellow employes to join her in
refusing to comply with the re
quirements of the hotel.
At 12 o'clock sharp the strike
was declared on, just at the hour
when the guests were preparing
for luncheon and at the most em
barrassing time for the manage
ment of the hotel.
F. Hulett, manager of the hotel,
promptly fired the whole bunch,
and although placed at adisadvant-

age in promptly serving lunch, only
a few minutes were lost in making
arrangements for service in the
dining hall. Announcement of
lunch was made just fifteen min
utes later than the usual time, but
the service was such that few of
the guests were aware of the de
claring and prompt settlement of a
strike, which might have resulted
in a hungry afternoon for the large
number of guests at the hotel that

the country as he was upon his
first visit here nearly three years
ago. Mr. Free says that the live
stock raisers and farmers of the

the importance of breeding their
range and work horses up to the
highest standard of use. He says

can return merchandise purchased
from us, and have your money re
funded. It might seem even stranger,
that we are willing to let you take
our goods, go . and compare them
with any of our competitors, and
then if you find others of better va

value for less money, or for any
reason whatsoever, vou return the
merchandise and get your money
But the explanation is simple
