When a married man's coffee Is
served to him hot and not slopped over
in the saucer, and the eggs haven't
bits of shell mixed with them. 1b this
cause lor jealousy on idb part, or cue
man's wife?even If the waitress be
petite, pretty and a brunette?
Magistrate Moss had this question
to determine in the Tombs police
court yesterday, when Mrs. Annie Ferris
was present on a summons obtained
by Miss Elisabeth Wilson, a waitress
at 84 Cortlandt street. Mr. Ferris
has a real estate office at 69 Liberty
street, and a noon-day appetite which
pretty Miss Wilson satisfies, says the
New York World.
"Because 1 see that her husband,
who sits at my table, gets the best of
everything, she threatens me." Miss
Wilson told the magistrate, nodding
toward Mrs. Ferris. "Mr. Ferris is an
old customer. He tips. too.
"1 pick out his sandwich, and If it's
cheese I see he does not get one full
of holes; or if tongue, 1 give him the
part without, the gristle; and if ho
wants a cantuloupe "
"You're a good waitress. Where do
you work?" asked Magistrate Moss,
interested. T"
"I open the eggs for him carefully;
he has the freshest crackers In 'the
house, and I always get. a piece of pie
that is freshly cut for hitn." Miss Wll
son cont tnued. "1 am ?i gooti jvanrcBs,
if t do say so.
"No customer once walled on by
me ever goes to another table." Miss
Wilson confided to tile magistrate. "I
was happy till- this woman came along.
I was going home last Tuesday evenIns.
and when I sot off the 'L' I accidentally
met Mr. Ferris at South
Ferry. 1 never was so surprised In
my life at seeing him. I stopped and
nodded to him?he being an old customer
and one who is liberal in his
"Then up rushes this woman between
"'Eo he!' she says to me. 'So you
are the typewriter, are you?'
"No. ma'am." says I, polite like; 'I'm
a waitress.'
"'You're a typewriter, and you are
trying to steal'my husband.' she says
to me. getting madder and madder. |
" 'I ain't a typewriter, and I don't
want your husband'.' 1 answered her."
"That ain't so." snapped Mrs. FerrlB.
"My husband lias been away front me
for three weeks, and he told me be was
going to take this girl uptown. I understand
he's been living at a hotel at
CorTlandt and West streets, anil gallavanting
around with this girl."
Miss Wilson turned and looked at
Mrs. Ferris, then continued her story.
"The very next day she came In the
restaurant and sat down at. my table
and ordered butter cakes and tea. and
Just sat. looking at me. superior like."
"Looking what?" asked Magistrate
"Why. high and mighty and haughty,
an?I the other girls leased me ao i
dropped an. order of two eggs turned
over, and one of creamed potatoes^ and
the manager was just wild. Then she
tips and goes oflt and I got the summons.
I want to he let alone. T don't
want her old husband."
"What's your number?" Magistrate
Moss asked
"No. 7." '
"Well. No. 7, when Mr. Ferris! comes
In again you let No. 4. No. 11 or No. 14
wait on him; and you. Mrs. Ferris,
you let this girl alone. Case-dismissed."
Thus was the green-eyed monster
