    Tip-Giving Playing Out
Says a restaurant waiter: The fashion
of giving tips is dying out among
eaters at the restaurants, and there
isn't as much money in waiting as
usual. Occasionally a waiter can make
a dollar or so extra, but it isn't often.
The proprietors sat down on tips some
time ago, on the ground that waiters
were extravagant iu tiling up meals
for customers who gave tips. They
said that a waiter would give a man
three dollars’ worth of stuff for one
dollar in order to get the tip. When
tips are forbidden the waiter’s services
are not so good. At present many
good waiters do not work in the
restaurants and hotels, but just on the
outside, at balls, banquets and wed­
dings. At a fashionable affair, when
every body is iu full dress, we can got
five dollars a night and found in a
jacket. At a common ball we get
threo dollars a night and found, and
the same prices are paid at banquets
and weddings. There are seasons
when a good waiter can make quite a
large sum in this line, and then there
are tips, too, and the work is good.—

“Monday night I was poor and Tues­
day I was rich,” said Mr. Charles H.
Scheffreen, a few days ago to a Courier
reporter. That he had very recently
been poor no further evidence was
needed to convince the reporter than
the almost poverty stricken home in
which he had been found in Russell
place; that • suddenly he had been
made rich the reporter had written
proof in his possession, as had also
Mr. Scheffreen, who, with well founded
delight showed his visitor a receipt,
signed by the cashier of one of our
largest banks for a negotiable order for
thousands of dollars, which had been
deposited for collection that very day.
“Yes, I am indeed a fortunate man.
But I had faith and knew it would
come sooner or later. ‘How many
children have I?’ There is this little
girl,” said the elated speaker pointing
to a pretty black-eyed little Jewess,
perhaps ten or eleven years of age,
"and five others, besides a daughter
who is married. Yes, I have had a
tough time of it, and had it not been
for the hope of some day having just
this luck I cannot tell what I should
have done. I left Russia five years
ago with my family, thinking I should
have no trouble at all in making a
good living. I found it much harder

the animated speaker with chuckle, "1

I have!”
Mr. Scheffreen seemed very anxious
that the public should know of his
good fortune. “I wish I could tell
every man in Boston to buy a ticket,”
he said. "I have told every friend 1
have seen, and many of them have
already taken my advice. Yes, put it
in the Courier by all means, let every­
body know it.” A strange inciden'
connected with Mr. Schiffren's draw­
ing a part of the second capital prize
of $100,000, and one which would
seem to indicate that nothing had
power to prevent him from getting it,
was the fact that, although he ordered
his ticket several weeks before the
drawing, by some accident or other it
had not reached him as late i s fiv«
o’clock on the Monday afternoon im
mediately preceding the Tuesday on
which the distribution of prises took
place, and it was the new ticket tha

How Sugar 1« Handled on the Famous

Mr. M >uks said that the subject of
art fieial li 'lit was very large aud
worthy of a series of lectures, as it
ought to be covered. He referred to
the worship of the orbs by the
ancients. The Lucas claimed to be
children of the sun. Li^ht of some
sort was associated with those who ex-
pectod some return from their duty.
The practice of fires in open spaces
was common in ancient limes. As
civilization advanced lamp laws were
passed to prohibit bonfires.
centuries bonfires were common with
the Celtic natives in Europe, especially
at festival times. Beacon fires were
often used as signals. Their use is
mentioned in the Greek tragedy of
“Agamemnon.” In Spain taxes were
levied to sus'ain beacons at the time
of the Armada. In the Book of Jere­
miah, in the B bio, there is an allusion
to the fire signal. Th* re was a mast
and tar barrel on Beacon Hill. It was
never used and was blown down in
'The use of whale oil originated with
the N »rweg ans. In 1680 the Dutch
had 260 vessels, employing 14 000 men,
in the business. In New E igland the
whales were first caught from small
boats. The Indians engaged with
avidity in the hunt for whales. In
1858 there were 60) vessels of 200,000
tons burden engaged in the American
whale fishery'. The argand lamp was
first used in 1800. iThe decline in
whale fishery was due to the discovery
of oil in Pennsylvania.
Candles were spoken of first in a
rem >te p *riod. Their use really began
in the early history of Christianity.
As late ns the sixteenth century their
use was limited. In spite of modern
methods the candle is used for certain
pnrpo es, and the soft light can not
fail to please the eye. The honor and
merit of the first application of coal
gas seems to belong to William Mur­
dock, of Red worth, Cornwall. In 1802
he lighted an extensive manufacturing
establishment France also claimed
the honor of its first demonstration,
but not satisfactorily. January 28.
1807, saw a number of London streets
igh'cd by gas. The amount of $20,-
000 was raised, and the King petitioned
tor tho incorporation of a company.
Two companies supply London at 70
cents per 1.000 cubic feet, and the’r
capital is $60 000 000. Coal gas was
first used in B dtimore in 1816, and for
some time its progress was slow and
unsatisfactory. Now there are over
1,000 works in the United States, fur­
nishing employment to over 25.000
men, a portion being for the manu­
facture of water gas.
In 1798 a Frenchman discovered the
process by which water gas was made.
In 1875 Prof. Lowe established the first
works in tho United Slates. The busi­
ness has increased enormously here,
but not always, because hard coal and
naphtha are so expensive. Natural
•fas has been know in Asia and China
for a long time. II story tells us of a
well in France in the time of Julius
CiBsar. The first in the United States
was in Charleston. The Taylor House
iu Fredonia, N. Y., was illuminated in
1824 in honor of Lafayette. A few
ears ago a gas well was discovered in
Ocean Spray, near this city.
nature and efficiency of natural gas is
but partly understood.
Petroleum was known to mankind
from the dawn of history. It was
spoken of in Sweden in 1750. In
West Tn Pennsylvania it was found on
ibo ground, and used a 4 a medicine
many years before wells were bored.
1 > 1858 a well 72 feet deep, yielded
more than 1,000 barrels a day. Then
a reckless spirit of speculation arose.
It enriched a few, while it ruined
thousands. The standard drill is five
and one-half
inches, the flow
being as great from a small

the products amounted to 25.000,000
barrels, and the stock on hand June

In concluding, Mr. Monks said that
he had heard a great deal said about
he s:ze of the statue of Liberty on
Sedloe’s Island as being the highest
stut ue ever known in modern or
ancient times. To test this he had
made a scale of the lighthouse Pharos,

Alexandria, aud was regarded as one
of the seven wonders of the world,
making his computations from the ac­
count in Josephus and judging by the
«¡stance it could be seen at sea. Plac­
ing the model of Pharos against a
model of the statue of Liberty, lhe
former was seen to be much the higher

A hogshead of sugar is a huge ar­
rangement of staves, hoops and heads
weighing, when filled with sugar, from
eleven hundred to iif oen hundred
The cooper-shop anti the
plantation together produce the hogs­
head of sugar.
When the cane has
been cut and prossed, and the juice
boiled into sugar, the sweet stuff is
packed into the hogshead, put on board
a steamboat, and shipped to this city,
consigned to the factor representing
the planter. On arriving at the land­
ing the sugar is unloaded on the wharf,
where it is allowed to remain for twen­
ty-four hours, and even longer when
room is plentiful. Then, if not hauled
away, it is rolled into the sugar-slieds
at the expense of the owner.
Open kettle sugar is sold to the
dealer on the levee. The factor is the
seller, whether he employs a broker or
not. The majority of factors have the
services of a broker to attend to the
es on the landing.
The first-hand
factor or br ker only sells in lots, and
the bids are either made openly, as
the buyers gather around the hogs­
heads, or the sugar is sold on private
offers if the price proffered is the high­

This is done by means of a
long steel instrument known as the
gimlet, which is run through tho bung­
hole down into the sugar, twisted
about, and drawn out full of the sac­
charine matter. This operation Is per­
formed several times, until a sufficient
quantity is obtained to clearly show
the quality of ihe article. These sam­
ples are generally piled up for the tim ’

It is while the sampling process is
going on that the buyers gather
round, each in his turn making his of­
fer. The buyer generally attends the
sales to per.-on ally inspect his pur­
chase, but sometimes semis for sam­
ples, and then, on receipt of his goods,
compares them with the samples fur­
nished him.

Clarified sugar is soil by sample in
the sugar exchange. The supplies are
collected an I taken to lhe ex change,
where they are spread out on tho
tables for the inspection of buyers.
After the sugar is sold it is weighed
and gu aged and is then ready for ship­
ment after the first cooperage. It is
swung from the scales by means of
large hooks that catch on the chimes of
hogshead so that when the beam is
pulled down the hogshead is lifted
from the ground and the weight
ascertained. Four men usually con­
stitute the weighing gang, together
with lhe clerk taking the records of
the weights.
These hogsheads as a
general tiring run from 1.100 to 1,500
pounds, but in weighing open-kettle
sugar the figures give the 5 and 10
pounds. Thus, if a hogshead weighs
1,214 pounds it goes down as 1,210
pounds. Then 12 per cent, is knot ked
off from the gro s weight In clarified
sugar the actual weight goes.
When the hogsheads have been coop­
ered the boss drayman or his clerk,
with his teams, appears on the scene.
The sugar is marked, rolled on the
floats, and hauled to its destination in
the city or to lhe print of shipment, in
case it is being forwarded to some
other port, domestic or foreign. The
low float is driven up close to the lots
to be handled, a skid is hooked into
the iron brackets at the side of the
floa’, and the teamsters strain them­
selves in rolling up the great hogs­
heads on o the bottom of the wagon.
After this handling the sugar soon
comes into u«e on the table or in the
Molasses is disposed of in the same
way as sugar. The brokers always
come down to the levee to see the sam­
ples of molasses, as they are not taken
to the exchange.
Immediately on
their arrival the barrels of molasses
are coopered by the first-band cooper,
so as to keep them tight and prevent
leaking.— N. O. 'limes-Democrat
