Dear Sib I have delayed answering your letter in
order to send you the enclosed certificate. Mr. Bart
Reeve declines to give a testimonial at present for the
reason that he has been under the treatment of a num-
lr of Physicians and thinks that they might not like it
if he were to make the affirmation of the effect your
.Mineral Water nau upon him. l will aescrilte tne case
to you as near as I can : He had been sick alxut two
years and an unnatural belt had formed around him
just below the ribs. He drank your Mineral Water
three or four days and the belt went off in such a way
as to caiiBe his legs and feet to swell, but that soon dis
appeared, and he Is now in comfortable health. The
doctors had all given up that he could not get well.
There are a number of persons here who have spoken to
me for some of the water to use ui various cases, and l
would like to use a little myself. I think it is the test
nervous remedy I ever knew. Please send me five
gallons of the water. Respectfully,

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-
: 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

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. Detroit
