liii CITY AT LUNCH. By W. PETT E1DG2. As the office cloci, R near the hour of one anxious appealing looks from junior clerks are directed at the roundface, begging it with great urgency to make haste. The office clocks would respond good-naturedly, I think, to this request, only that they are checked by stern glances from seniors, whoso main complaint against the day is that it has but four-and-twenty hours, whose grudge against clocks is that they travel too quickly. Between these antagonistic appeals City clocks wisely decide that the time between midday and one sJnll be of precisely the same period as that between other hours, with the result that they please nobody. Blessed clock's always flow," grumble the juniors. Somebody's been putting that clock on," complain the seniors. But one o'clock s.rikes with a sharp ting from little clicks, and a deep, carefully considered booming from. St. Paul's and other churches, and on the ins-ant hair the City is placing down its pen, taking its paper protectors from shirt- cufis, giving siln hats a turn on coat sleeves, and setting out to billet on neighbouring restaur- ants. Wild youngs vers scream as they go with the pent-up emotions of the morning grown- up young men growl a cheerful melody, and see that their neck Lies and moustaches are in order. For a space the City is in their hands. At restaurants and tea, shops preparations for the attacks have been arranging all the morning, and the defence is ready—plates of cold food are ranged on the counter to check the advance steaks are mounted on the grill so near to being' ready that another wink of time would burn them; the coffee-urns steam with anxiety. No time to lose the high stools are at the counter; the attendants behind the ramparta of food are cool and resolute in the manner of defenders who have always succeeded in coping with the enemy, and in making it pay for the damage it has done. Because time is limited, the old-fashioned rule of etiquette, which warned one never to speak with one's mouth full, is not here observed; the maternal warning that you should not attempt to do two things at the same time is disregarded cigarettes are made, the halfpenny evening paper—already in quite a mature edition—is skimmed, the world surveyed. And if Surrey doesn't jolly well buck up, she 11 find herself no thing more or less than The man handles his bat as though he was offering cake. Now, when I go to the wickets Oh, our chief is an outsider. Mv word, what a bounder! If ever a wrong 'un did exist in this world, it's him. Just because I was about half-an-hour late this morning he was simply raving. I told him I'd overslept myself, but even chat didn't satisfy him went on at me up- hill and down dale. I didn't say anything, but I 1st him see 1 didn't half like it by the way I shut the door." Been engaged, I have, times out of number— well, three times at any rate—-and I don't mind uli.ng you, old chap, that this 'present one is abfv lately and without doubt the most charming girl that ever worked in a shop.

Ho'ct better be careiul If he calls me splay-foot Hg>!in, i smil tell him what his sister said about him." Thank you, sir After you with the mustard. Now, then, Churl.-s. aren't those tomatoes planted yet? Do hurry up, there's a good sort I'm all behind with my work at the office, and here are you nutting every obstacle in my way, except- ii\ s; A great change has come over the City at its lunch daring 1 its years. Men who took a glass of wine and a biscuit now go to one of the bread shops and take a cup of coiiee and a roll and butter. To this frugal meal a bank manager sits, perhaps, at the next table to his smallest office- ooy. The Bread and Butter Company levels all. Tins type of restaurant has introduced another reform by providing demurely gowned young women-with an identical mode of head-dress, and a c. 1.1 severity of manner that freezes the badin- age of joyous youth. Some men drink tea at midday. This is se.erilege tea should be reserved jef-doit.1/ for the hour of four, and any oiience up-.riise the rule bus to be punished by dyspepsia. x us tendency is to make trie midday meal lighter and lighter, although there are still places where ully a square meal is offered, and where the man who dared ask for a piece of cake and a glass of warm milk wnnl.i *■>» ":l iNoar ike St c and also near the Wool tlxeh inge, i (1 where steaks of ex- cellence ca <. r u eaks so rare in quality and so ari. i Uw t pers given on leaving to the whi ( | whiue-aproned genius who prepared it should be, if a sense of proportion were used, untold gold. In odd, shy, unobserved streets in the City the old-fashioned restaurant can still be found, with its pew-like arrangement of seats, and solid waiters shuffling up and down the aisles and bawling a kind of verbal, stopless shorthand down. to the kitchen. Two steaks, one under- done, 'urry up them colifiers, one mashed on order, two soles, one of 'em fresh, pineomild. They take in The Times at these old-style lun- cheon rooms, and divide it amongst the sittings, arranging that the doyen of the clients get the inside, and that the youngest receives the ad- vertisement pages. Also they take in the humor- ous papers, which conie in white and clean on the day of publication and set out on their week's journey, reaching the end in a condition that clouds their intent. On the wall appears a notice— CLIENTS are warned that the 8d. Plates are not served in this room, But can be obtained at LUNCHEON BAR." Here a cut from the joint and odd things are served at, say, eighteenpence. A man with a reasonable appetite desires no better meal. In the busy, crammed, turbulent luncheon- hour the slippered waiters have no time for con- versation—call on them later in the day and they are grateful if allowed to hold respectful con- versation. I used to look upon them as I re- gard churchwardens, but one in Abchurch Lane destroyed my faith. On a certain afternoon he told me that his father had been an old Tory squire, and he himself had been brought up in luxurious surroundings, with every blessed t'-ing, sir, that the 'eftrt could wish for." A partiality for backing horses that came in fourth had reduced him to his present circumstances, and now his great fear was that he should en- counter some of his old Oxford contemporaries, for then," he said, I shan't know where to put my little face to." I felt pained at all this, and I remember that I gave him, being then young, as much as threepence for himself, feeling that this would help to console him for his reverse of fortune. Knowing that lie would always expect this sum from me on subsequent visits, I refrained from going to the restaurant until an afternoon some months later, on the occasion of my birthday. He did not recognise me, and presently, on bringing my cabinet- pudding, he told me that his father had been, perhaps, one of the finest performers at the music-halls of his day that his mother had been an Italian Countess, and that he himself, if he cared to give up his work at the luncheon-rooms, could make money—" 'and over fist," he ex- pressed it—by singing in any country of the world that I cared to mention. "Only draw- back is," said the waiter pathetically, my doctor tells me I could never stand the excite- ment. Consequently I 'ave to stay on 'ere and do the best I can and take whatever small silver our young gentlemen customers like to leave on the table for me. See what I mean ? In the summer months the luncheon-hour for those in the east of the City is spent on the quay at the long white Customs House, where those who are prompt and fleet of foot can get a seat, and, as they eat sandwiches, watch the steamers go down the river towards the Tower Bridge see the Customs officers set out in their boats to ruurnage arriving ships, and generally get some brief suggestion of a visit to the s.); side. There it is that young men think and talk of holidays, discuss the prices and the advantage of Southend as compared with Margate, and barter economical addresses. Pigeons flutter down and finish the sandwiches left from these open-air luncheons, unless they are anticipated by the queer, dilapi- dated wastrels who slouch about the City search- ing the ground and gleaning unconsidered trifles, and for whom even the cheapest restaurants are not. Just as in the City the man who has had a good morning m Throgmorton Street can t.kf his partner to the best and dearest luncheon thaj even a f>t"ckbroker can desire, so the City, beins; a thoughtful matron, with sons who are success ful and sons who are unlucky, provides, in ode corners, es';abli .lunents whore sixpence takes a man through the entire hill of fare.

Even here there are compensations, and I once saw an important City man—who pays the rent of two doctors in Harley Street, and is their 1-ive—I saw him look in at one of these cheap, busy places, and for a few moments he watched the eating, conteui-d customers. Then he sif-hxl, and went back to his suite of offices in Cornhill to drink a glass of hot water for lunch.
