By tho Investment of a little energy and
10 cents carfare, housewives can save
$1.10 every time they go to market. If
they arc particular and like to sco pro
visions ntnld artistic surroundings boforo
buying, then they must give up hope of
effecting thin economy. Dut It they simply
want the provisions on their merits', the
amount mentioned can be saved by those
who go to markot three times every week.
It Is generally known by those wlin
have been Investigating markets In Phil
adelphia nnd other cities that tho stylo
and convenience demanded by tho people
hnve been largely responsible for the high
cost of food. For Instance, a head of
cabbage, which may be bought for "i
cents, lr a woman picks It up from a
basket and carries It home, Is greatly In
creased In price If It Is sent homo In the
dealer's fancy automobile and delivered
In a fancy wooden box by n uniformed
messenger. In such a case It Is plain to
be seen that tho cost of the auto, tho
wages of tho chauffeur and tho cost, of
the gasoline have entered Into tho price
of the simple head of cabbage, which
will not taste any better than If It were
carrlod home by the houscu'lfe herself or
one ot hor children.
The experience of the cabbage applies
to all kinds ot food bought In fancy mar
kets. If a housewife desires to economize
nnd get down to simplicity In buying she
cannot liftd a better place than the curb
stone market. There are several of these
unassuming Institutions In this city. One
of the most reasonable Is located on South
7th street, from Dickinson to Mlinin
street. Here enn be found everything
In tho produce line, devoid of frills, at
A reporter for the RvcNtKa Lrdokii
took a trip through thl3 open-air mnrket
today nnd compared the prices of pro
visions tljeie with prices at the Heading
Terminal Market. As most of tho pa
trons of the curbstone market buy in
the half peck nnd dozen quantities, ho
used these measurements as a basis for
comparison. It can be stnlcd Incidentally
that many patrons ot tho terminal market
buy In tho same quantities.
The reporter found that In 17 articles of
food given In the accompanying table,
the housewife could save 1.2A by patroniz
ing the curbstone market Instead of the
Terminal Markot. Deducting 10 cents for
enrfaro for those who live beyond walking
distance from the curbstono market tho
saving would bo f 1.10 on each trip to
It Ic fair to assume that tho housewife
who buys In such small quantities Is
obliged to go to market nt least three
times a week, nnd her saving would be
J1.S0 a week. This Is not a (spasmodic
condition, and Investigation has flhown
thnt tho name .iiargln of economy could
bo effected the year round.
Tho throngs who patronize this curb
matket dally prove that these facts have
gone home to the housewives, and now
they come fiom nil sections ot the city.
In mnny rases two women market to
gether and help' each other to carry
home the morning's marketing. This Is
why ono sees so many baskets on the
trolley car? bound for the suburbs. Tho
venders of the curbstono market say they
will not start the sendlng-homo svstem.
for they realize the moment they Ifir that
prices must soar.
Tho curbstone market was a busy scene
this morning. Well-gowned wqmen
lubbed elbows with the poor housewife
In shawl nnd wrapper, and many of the
foimcr learned a few points from tho
poor woman's method of buying. Whllo
there arc no marble counters nnd spot
lessly clad attendants, tho curb mer
chants nre dressed for their work in
hand, and are courteous, too, for they
want tho same customers to come back
ago In and bring their neighbors.
And Judging from tho business, the
women nro doing it.
Sharp Contrast in Cost of Filling
Market Basket at Terminal and Curb
This table shows the difference In prices nt the Terminal and "curbstone"
markets. There wns no difference in tho grade of goods selected for comparl-"
son. Tho cost of the poorer grado of goods nt the curbstone market was much
lower than the prices given:
