The sending of money to mail order
houses is a mistake. J
Mr. Vv. F. Clegg. proprietor of the
Hotel Clogg, i Greensboro, some
years ago started the Kuropean plan
of conducting a hotel. He was the first ,
in the state to adopt it. Mr. Clegg has
abolished the tipping of waiters in his '
hotel. He considers tipping as an ex-(
tra expense and has posted in his din- ;
ing room, office and throughout the ho- .
tel "Positively No Tipping Allowed." j

As long as we can remember our
