A How did Yon Settle it a a the thing settled itself. I called upon a California gentleman stopping at a hotel who is Worth Orer $20,000,000. His experience Haa keen extensive for he has not Only travelled All Over Europe hut thoroughly done his native country. I found him Ait breakfast and by invitation sat Down with him. He was being served on the european plan ate Carle. I noticed that the waiter was very attentive and knew the wealth behind the Man to was serving. The breakfast w As Plain and amounted to 80 cent a i lie millionaire ran his hand Down a his pocket among them two $20 Gold pieces. The waiter turned aside somewhat nonchalantly As ii not watching tie process betas a Quarter of a Dollar was fished out and handed to him his face wreathed in Guiles Anil be said thank you a in a Low voice. I was astonished i thought 50 cents would be his lowest tip and that a Dollar was not infrequent with millionaires of his Well known generous nature. A the said that 25 cents was the highest tip on any and All occasions lint they knew it waa coming and never neglected him. He argued that it was not the great amount but the Assurance that a tip was coming that bad the magical effect he tipped nearly everybody in tie hotel tic baggage Man.

A Quarter All around to this Small army amounted to several dollars. He asserted that he preferred to be taken for a very poor Man. So As not to to bored 1 in attention. Well since then i have tried the Quarter of a Dollar limit and i find it works. A half Dollar will produce no better results. The waiter knows that a half Dollar tip is oat of proportion Ami that it is Only a sporadic Case of generosity. It is the average certainty i find More than the amount i give my Barber 10 cents every time. He says that a certain millionaire gives him i and make it do for six months.
