The United States and Kansas Likely

Topeka. Kan., November 18. The

THE TIPPING QUESTION.
How It Is Practiced at Home and
Abroad and the Need of

The question of tipping seems small
enough in detail, but rather Important
A woman who Bpent last winter In
one of the most sumptuous of New
York hotels says she Invariably gave
a quarter to her waiter at breakfast
and luncheon, those being meals taken
alone. At dinner time she was Joined
by her husband, who always handed
the waiter 50 cents.
The latter sum seemed to evenly fill
the man's idea of what was due him,
and his "Thank you, sir," was bland
and gracious, but the lady's modest
quarters always found their grave in
the black waistcoat pocket with no
expression of gratitude finm the re
cipient's face, which wore a meaning
look aa of one who says: "Women ore
mean, an' never knows 'ow to do the
right thing by a man: but one "as to
put up with 'era."
It is only ln reckless, good natured
America that optional fee are so much

man to give at dinner in a fashionable

In Paris there I an unwritten scale
which apportions five per cent on the
amount of a customer's bill aa a tip.
Thus, a person ordering a dinner that
cost 12 would, on settling his bill, add
10 cent for the attendant.
It Is time we had either a legal or
informal rule governing tip In this
country, -and it Is to be hoped that
some rich persons will help In the re
form. It will never be done by those whose
means are really small enough to feel
