Teamster and Sec'y Hoboes' Union.
Winter time, and especially hard
times, bring into being atrocities
known as 5-cent restaurants. At this
time Chicago can boast of several
and all seem to be doing a land-office
business. Taking into consideration
the ever increasing cost of food prod
ucts, it is nothing short of marvelous
to provide a full meal for a nickel and
make the enterprise pay.
Imagine for one minute the kind of
a meal one can get at that price. Yet,
it is a meal. Of course, some who are
naturally skeptical are inclined to call
it an apology of a meal.
The menu is varied and if one's
gastronomical taste runs along the
lines of the mysterious he can order
a plate of hash made out of every
thing else but corn beef, or if he is
inclined toward hamburger steak
some kind of an imitation well pad
ded with bread crusts will be served
to him. Should his palate insist on
pork and beans the beans will be
forthcoming, but the pork is more
than likely to be missing. Bones la
boriously collected from butcher
shops form the main ingredient of
the stew and if the meat is missing
the taste remains. A few other "deli
cacies" of a like nature are to be
found on the bill of fare. Of course,
a liquid of doubtful color, smelling
strongly of chicory, is included in the
order. Dry bread, generously piled
up in baskets complete the repast and I

Such meals will never give a man
an attack of gout or Blight's disease.
However, in the future a man who
has committed the unpardonable sin
of filling himself rapaciously on a
five-cent meal may be forced to buy
five dollars' worth of dyspepsia tab
lets to pay for his "gluttony."
One of those restaurants has some
connection with some charitable in
stitution, for tin checks with an in
scription reading: "Good for one
meal at such-and-such place" are
sometimes handed to the down-and-
out who is asking for something to
eat. These checks have acquired an
awfully bad reputation among the
unemployed. Some actually keep
them as a souvenir of the hard times.
