"Yes, I sup, oe s;," was Jack's l.t eun'e reply. Wo.ider how the do it?" ont'n--uedthe other 'mu inghv "Xow. ;is...: terday 1 had mut o; thvs day befo';? I ordered roast bjef an 1 '".to-lay I have eaten turkey and craa berry sauc3. It the tastes of others have been cjually as whimsical, th3 f'ence as well as t the abilities of the. eok or the-steward or some one else must have been se verely tested." "But you don't always get whit you want," growled Jack, impatient for the waiter's return. "True, when you are late," respond ed his companion, unmindful of Jack's failing, or his feelings. "But I notice that tne bill of fare at tirst-class hotels;' is very seldom crossed. It is the smaller hotels where you and I meet with our most frequent disappoint ment!. One would naturally suppose that it wo'ld be just the reverse; that large holds, favored w.th a liberal but necessarily uneven trans'ent trade, and furii shing their patto:is with a great var'ety of dishes, would fall short more frequently thau smaller hotels with lim.tfd and more regular patronage, as well as a less nrmber of d shes to l?rve." There was no response from Jack, and his compan"on having finished his meal, sauntered into the office and pro ceeded to quest" on tha clerk as to who was responsible for Ih3 meals served in hot Is. ' "It is d'fferent in different c:t"e," re plied the clerk. "In New York, Chi cago and some other large c';t es the bills of fare of the leading hotels are arranged by the head eoots. The best hotels in Detroit, with but one excep- t:on, ass gn thAt work to their stew- r : d s. The table of the hotel jxeepted is looked after by the proprietors, who have made quite a reputation in that line. The stewards, whose chief duties are usually to purchase the supplies ani attend to the carving, are second ed in their work by a head cook, who in turn depends on a number of second cooks and their helpers and vegetable and pastry cooks. This stall", which in t'ze is regulated by the business of the houses, is, with the except on of the vegetable and pastry cooks, made up of male help. In a few hotels women are employed as pastry cooks. "Put few women are engaged as cooks exceptin very small hotels- They are not competent. A woman cook will scarcely make one thing twice alike. Thev take too many chances; trust to much to luck, and in conse quence fal repeatedly. They hardly ever prepare their dishes according to any iixed rule as to the weight or measurement of the ingredients. - On the contrary, they are disposed to lump things; 'about a teaspoonful of this, about a cupful of that, and when near- y done stir in a little seasoning. They pay no attemt'on to the size of the teaspoon or the cup and insert the seasoning when and where it may please their fancy to do so. Now, a man cook works qirjte to the contrary," oontinued the hot .'l man. "Every in-gi-ed.ent he uses is as accurately meas ured and weighed as though a part of a druggist's presor ptiou, and the mix- ng ami cooking of rfie same are caten ated and t med as carefully as the hours allotted by the doctor for the patient's med c'ne. Even the purity and charac ter of the goods are inquired into. Nothing is left to chance, and he;icc there are no failures to be followed by that feminine excuse: 'I don't see why it is I should have such luck; 1 can't understand it.' " Bit,, how do the cooks know what quantity to preparer Easy nough. About ten o c.oek every morning tn omce iurn sues tne head cook with a list of the probable number of guests there w 11 be at din ner. In case of an unexpected rash subsequent to that hour, supplementary lists are sent to the head cook, ana if he finds there is a likel hoo l of any of the dishes running short, he will order one or more of the second cooks to dis continue dishing and prepare a second dinner. A first-class hotel prides ;tsclf in always naving enough of everything, but occasionally houses that make a mecial effort to secure novelties as soon 1 . . - .1 Ai tney appear in me marhet, a-rc-unable to satisfy late comers, owing to the limited Quantity obtainable. Meats that are left over can be served cold at sub sequent meals; the pastry that remain generally goes to the help; otherwise I ear they wouia not gei many iancj dishes in theirs. "Wages? They tal e a w da range. In Detroit there is one cook, a French man, who receives $1,XK) a year and his board. That is the Vghest price pa d in the city. Other first cooks in the lead ng hotels receive from G03 to 00 and board. The best of them are foreigners. Second cooks or broilers, as they are sometimes called, are paid from $30 to $50 a month; head vegeta ble cooks receive $25 to $35, and their assistants from $10 to $15 a month. Head, nastry cook3 demand from $25 to $10') a month, according to. the house ad the ability of the individual. In most hotels the pastry department is entirely distinct from a'l others. It provides the breads, cakes, pies and puddings, and, when the facilities of the house allow, lurnishes the ice cream, ices, jellies and canned goods. The wages of a majority of the pastry cooks will average about 5zo to jo a month. Of course, in cities like New York, Boston and Chicago wages for cooks are quite different. Here wages for second cooks' and helpers are some what lower in winter than m summer, owing to the close of lake navigation, which during the warm months fur nishes employment to a large number of cooks of medium ability.
