BLACKMAIL IN RESTAURANTS,
How Ihe System of TIppUg n iirKmr.
Compliant, of the tipping 8y stem, or
rather wt of system, aregroingmore
and inor.. common. It is the opinion of
those wh3 are in the habit of getting
their metds here and there and patroniz
ing thee fes about town that insolence
among rvaiters has visibly increased.
Everybody who knows anything about
ework knows what that means-an
exceedingly disagreeable state of affairs
"The evil is worse in proportion to the
respectability of the place," says a man
about to vn. -In othor words, the more
expense the meal the more liberal the
tip, and the more insulting the waiters
if it does nut come up to their ideas of
what tin- amount of the tip should be."
I have been making some personal in
vestigations in this line mvself and ui
hesitatirgly indorse the above opinion.
I have found that in everv instance the
waiter xpected a tip wheth. r he had
served well or not. and that this expecta
tion is li. ado so baldly apparent that the
attention of cverylvody in the vicinity is
called ti the fact to bear unwilling wit
ness as to the extent of your liberalitv.
Also th.it too smail a tip will subject
you to more pronounced insult that none
at all; t! at any e ffort to correct abuse
of this .-haracter by reporting the serv
ant is m. .re likely to multiply vour bad
treatment thr.n to reduce it.
If tht t-xvt-utive clerk or proprietor
does not recognize in you a valuable cus
tomer or' tb place, the chances are two
to one von will U received with more
contempt than you got at the hands of
the wai-er. Xo one man in MK) thus of
fended t ver complains he simply doesnt
go back Most city men and travelers
are not easily offended by waiters. Fa
miliar with the ways of the waiter, they
either piy up or ignore the intended of
fense. It is the sensitive man who is the
more r.-adily blackmailed, or who. re
sisting the levy, feels more keti.lv the
insolence of the menial.
In my experiments, conducted at six
different respectable restaurants, I found
that the poores-t waiters, the men who
gave th'! poorest sen-ice, were the most
offensive. At one place where, at the
suggest on of a friend interested in this
class of human nature, we went back to
the san e waiter on the next day, there
was siK-h a visible reluctance to serve
us that we were compelled to call the
head w .itt r before we could g t ar.v
tliin,' to eat. As my rule is to reward" a
servant proportionately for extra service
and ait uiion. and as mhiic of these men
reiid. n 1 this service and got nothing. I
cherish no hard feelings against then:
for the look i f coi l disappointment with
which they greeted our d.-partur. In
discriminate tipping has made tipping
useless practically, so far as good service
is coiict rued. It has become merely so
much I lackmail, and the poorest service
demands and receives the same reward
earned by and cheerfully paid the best.

merchant kindly. "lam very sorry,

Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays

" Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil

good effect upon their children."

" Cutoria is the best remedy for children of

Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
