Laughter or applause Is n good tonic

It was very emphatic, for Instance,
when Elizabeth Brlco nnd Charles King

HOW A DISH-WASHER
"On the Job" When He
Made $3 a Week, Frank
Hardart Kept at It Till
His Firm Owned a String
of Lunch Rooms.

Washing dishes nil day long Is a some
what tiresome Job. Tho clatter of plates
and the Jangle of knlve, forks and pans
Is not the kind of muslo to cause Inspira
tion, When a fellow hns to mon the
floor und clean up generally between the
rush of dishes It Is nt least apt to stifle
hope of better things.
Right among us here In Philadelphia Is
a man who had to put up with this hum
drum existence for somo time down In
Niw Orleans, and ho won only 13 when
he took the Job. And thero were no dcfl
nlto hours about It. Ho went to work
when the place opened and quit when It
closed. All day long ho nnshed nnd
scrubbed and scoured. Ho got J3 a week
and his name Is Frank Hardart.
But he washed the dishes welli thero
were no "lick and a promise" methods
about his 'work. Ha applied that samo
system to the tasks ho took up later, nnd
now some one else washes tho dishes.
woiiKcn and oBsnnvnit
Young Hardart was not only n good
worker; ho was nlso a closo Btudent of
human nature When the boss yelled nt
him to drop tho dishes nnd help out nt
tho tables, ho was "on the Job" In a flash.
Then ho learned that moqt men wcro
Irritable nt mealtime and liked good
McCloskcy, a rival in tho restaurant
line, soon had Hardart over at his place
on St. Charles Btreet and there the boy
had to roast and grind coffco nnd servo
It to the customers. Ho wns pollto and
diplomatic. He agreed with everybody
and everybody ngrccd with him Inci
dentally tho boss, who raised his wages
until ho got (10 a week.
The coffeo made by tho youngster soon
got a reputation in the community. He
knew how to blend It, how much cream
to put In and tho proper temporaturo It
could be kept at without losing Hb flavor.
In 1876 Hardart camo to Philadelphia.
tie was thinking seriously about starting
a lunch place with good coffee as a
headline attraction, but as everybody
was Interested In the Centennial celebra
tion nnd nlso skeptical about making In
vestments oven on a small scale, tho
youthful promoter of good coffco could
get no capital. He was obliged to tako
a Job outside of his lino nnd worked
for Charles Llpplncott, n manufacturer
of soda water apparatus, for thrco years.
Finally he got n Job at Joe Smith's lunch
plnco on 3d street above Chestnut. It
was one of the first "get It quick" lunch
places In tho city.
FIRST CArE IN PHILADELPHIA
One dny he saw a small advertisement
In tho paper. It said that a mnnugcr was
wanted by a man who Intended to start
a small lunch enfo. Hardart answered
tho ad. Tho man was Joseph Y. Horn.
Together I'ney went over tho city for a
good place to start nnd nftcr many weeks
decided on December 22, 18SS, to open nt

Just 11 by 13 feet. Hardart started with
his New Orleans lirninl oi .. .. . t, ,
order to mako it known htiil tnnln rii.
trlbuted announcing thnt n good cup of
coffco could bo obtained for S cents.
Things looked so favorable that some
months Inter a second place was started
nt 101 South Sth street. In a shoit tlmo
the firm's brnnches began to dot tin
business section of tho city, and they
now liavo 20 establishments In this city
nnd seven In New York, which are di
rected bv Mr Hardart's sons.
About ten years aeo Mr. Hardart real
ized that more speedy service would bo
n great asset, nnd tho firm opened tho
first nulomat, on Chestnut street above
Eighth. This did a big business almost
from the outset nnd tho fact all possi
bility of tips was eliminated appealed to
tho patrons of meagre puree. Thero nrn
now eight automats In the city.
Some time ago the firm expanded and
allowed a largo number of Ita employes
to becomo stockholders. Of the 1100 em
ployes, a very large percentage havo
been with the firm almost from tho be
ginning. Tho spirit of initiative Is on
(.ouraged by tho fact that promotions nre
mado from the ranks. livery nowcomcr
has to take IiIb placo In line.
In addition to looking after tho business
with his partner, who Is nlso an Indc
fatlgablo workor, Mr. Hardart Berved
seven jonrs In Common Council.
Whllo ho Is rounding out his C3th yenr
ho is on tho Job as much ns ever. Ho
is liable to "pop" In nt any of the lunch
places at any tlmo and bco that tho
coffco Is up to tho mlnuto and tho wait
