ITo iv They ,r
Ill English restaurants, where the
customer pays his bill through the
waiter, tlio latter Is held responsible
for its due payment from the moment
he receives the urtlcleii ordered by the
customer from the kitchen, and what
Is known as the "check" system is
pretty generally adopted. Tho waiter,
on beginning his day's work, pays In
to tho proprietor or his clerk from 310
to $25 to cover the orders he is likely
to receive during tho day, and ho Is
given In exchange u uumb;r of
"checks." For every order ho gives h
hands In cheeks to an equivalent
amount If tho value of the orders ex
ceeds the amount of deposit the waiter
must pay In more money before he ro
celves the dishes. What tho customers
pay him ho retains until settling time.
If tho customer goos away without
paying tho waiter must boar tho loss.
Tho waiter Is the person on whom the
blame mituralTy falls If orders aro not
pnomptly executed.. Hut ho.ls himself
nf the mcroy of' tho kitchen portew, I
who pass the dislies from the kitehen, . ft
nun ineso men seriously Impodehlm by
dawdling In carrying out his orders if
he falls to square them with a fee.
