AT THE CAFETERIA
By Addlaoa Bennett.
The noon rush was over at the cafe
teria, but the crowds still thronged the
gangway and the tables, for the Rose
Festival had filled up the city as never
before. The chef and his assistants in
the kitchen were worked to a frazzle,
the dishwashers were faint with fa
tigue, and the servers wished the. event
was. over for they were all dog tired.
The proprietor was on the floor among
the guests, looking after their comfort,
having a jolly word with those he knew
and a smile and genial how-de-do for
But the best-pleased person in the
entire place was the little blonde cash
ier, for she had found dozens of absent
minded customers who had left their
change lying on the counter as they
paid Jhelr bills and walked out- In one
case she had confiscated the balance
of a $5 gold piece, after taking out
the amount of the ticket, 40 cents. But
this vast sum she had laid carefully
away expecting the stranger would call
for it, and If he does he will get It
with a smile and a "thank you- from
the little blonde, for she is honest clear
down to her little No. 2 feet.
Just now she is taking a mental ac
count of stock, rather she is summing
up the tips and left-over change for
the day, and she figures, that without
the change for the five, which she has
scarce hopes of retaining, she has in
her apron pocket something over 1& as
her day's percentage, with the day but
half gone. As she was at the height
of her delight the boss came up to her
and remarked that he guessed she had
better telephone for some one to come
and relieve her, for, said he, "you must
be very, very tired. And you had better
