EVERY MEAL IN A DIFFERENT STATE. For the last seven years Harry Vaughan of 637 Fourth avenue, Dayton, Ky., has eaten each of his three daily meals in a different state every working day of the year. Mr. Vaughan's occupation is salesman salesman for a baking concern, and in the early morning rush he snatches breakfast in Cincinnati, O. ; lunch in Lawrenceburg, Ind., and then returns to his home in Kentucky foi dinner. And, not satisfied with this daily routine, he sometimes goes over the entire route again during an evening's entertainment. TOMORROW: "THE UPSIDE-DOWN UPSIDE-DOWN UPSIDE-DOWN HOUSE."
