Plans are already well advanced for feeding the large crowds that attend this annual event in this city o£ 3,000 which started Aug. 22, 1900. The · main staple oC diet is the famous slumgullion, a stew prepared hobo style by hoboes. Twelve lundred gallons of this delicacy is required to feed the multitude. The stew will require 700 pounds of beef, 300 pounds of cabbage, 200 pounds of carrots, 10 pounds of salt and half as much pepper, to which there will be added some 150 pounds oC potatoes. The cooking is started the day before the eonvcn- ;ion by chefs who know their 'slum." It is cooked in large steel tanks and barrels.

Make an a p p o i n t m e n t w i t h your eye physician now. Because a child's growing eyes arc delicate--require extra lijnc from the doctor, extra care when If.O.V. dispensers fit their glasses. Of course, glasses may not even be necessary. Hut if they arc prescribed, we manage to make quite a game of it for the kiddins. Take special care, too, to fit them comfortably on little noses and ears. And really--children do look RO cuds in our frames, their mothers jiict have- to srnilc. CONSULT AN EYE PHYSICIAN (M. D.)
