starting of markets at the Goldsmith
School property. Maxwell and Union
sts., and Eckhart Park, Chicago av.
and Noble st
Both are poor districts and con
gested. The markets, according to
plans, will seel foodstuffs to the peo
ple at cost. Eventually the commis
sion will establish five more mar
kets. "We've done a great deal toward
lowering the cost of food already,"
said Aid. Lawley, chairman of the
commission. "A number of the gro
cers have cut prices, announcing
that they were selling goods at the
usual rates. A number of others have
been kept from joining the food grab
bers and price boosters' crew by the
city's action. August Geweke, pres
ident of the Cook County Truck
Growers' Ass'n, will teU. us tomorrow
where and how to buy."

A peek-a-boo waist
May look very pert,
But we pity the man
In a hard-boiled shirt.
By Jim Manee.
It won't be long, if the cold keeps up,
Before we will have some snow.
I may seem rather ahead of time,
But, then, folks, I don't know.
When you think of these nights,
And the chizzly wind,
And the touch of fall in the breeze,
Yqu can hardly say,
'Twill be many a day
Ere the rivers and lake will freeze.
P. S. Let 'er come. We can all
get a skate on!
CHICAGO GRAIN. Wheat lower.
