DISTRICT MESSENGERS

There is a district messenger service in Paris
somewhat similar to that in New York. The
organization is called "Petits Messagers" and has
oflSces at 21 Place du Marche St. Honore, Telephone
Nos., Gutenberg 28-55 and Gutenberg 25-87. The
boys deliver the messages on bicycles, and the



L



charges are 50 centimes for the first quarter of an

hour and 25 centimes for every additional quarter

of an hour.

GRATUITIES

In the more expensive hotels tips are about five

francs each to the chambermaid, valet, porter and

concierge. The tips for meals taken at the hotel

are about 10% of the amount of the bill and are

given to the head waiter. The porter who attends

to the luggage expects one to two francs at arrival

and departure. In the larger restaurants the

average tip is about 10% of the amount of the bill

and is paid to the waiter who served the meal. A

tip of 25 centimes is sufficient at the cloakroom

unless there is a party of several persons. In smaller

establishments the tips should be reduced about

one-third. At the theatres the attendants who

take people to their seats expect 30 to 50 centimes.

Railway porters receive about 50 centimes per

package. Tipping is quite frequent in Paris, but

small amounts, 30 or 50 centimes, are sufficient for

small services.

other public places.

THEATRES
Theatres in Paris are quite expensive, the best
seats in many of them being as high as 15 francs or
more. The arrangement and naming of the seats
differ a good deal, and the charges for admission
vary to such an extent that no attempt has been
made to give typical scale of prices.

TRAMWAYS

There are a number of tramways traversing
Paris and running out to the suburbs, all of which
have large placards designating the localities to
which and between which they run, but they are
not apt to be much used by the tourist, so a descrip-
tion of their routes is not included in this booklet.
It may be noted, however, that among other places,
h'nes go to Vincennes, St. Cloud, Versailles, and
Auteuil, but it is not advised to make any of these
excursions on holidays when the cars are very
crowded.
