BUSY, BUSTLING CROWD AT TlE RED BOOT Enormous Crowds in-Attendance at the Opening Days of Phenomenal Sales for Which the Red Boot Has Become Famous. "]low long will this keep up?" was a question put to the manager of the Red Boot by a reporter after elbowing and pushing his way through the crowd that thronged the store this morning. "That is a hard question to answer. Our buyer down in New York has shipped us about $7,000 worth of fine shoes he picked up at as cents on the dollar, and as our regular fall stock commences to arrive September t, I see nothing to do but let the public have this lot of fine sample shoes. All we want is to turn the shoes into cash, and the way you can see the crowds carrying them away, we will soon reach the end. "We intend giving thent a hot bunch again Monday morning front p:jo to bo:3o. "When you stop to think you would not wonder at the store being crowded when $5 women's boots and Oxfords are being sold at $s.95, like this one" (handing us a French kid, hand-turned boot, with hand worked eyelets). Judging from the way shoes were being wrapped up by what seemed a regular army of salespeople, these matchless bargains will not last long. In a conversation with Mr. Strudy, un til recently connected with one of the large shoe stores in Chicago, now in charge of the women's department of the Red Boot, he expressed surprise at the enormous crowds attending this sale, such buying being unusual, even for Chicago. Ample preparations have been made to handle the enormous crowd that will surely attend this big sale tonight, as the store will be open until to p. m. LITERARY Will Start Magazine. It is the intention of the publishers of Wonderland to immediately commence the publication of a monthly magazine, which will also be under the caption of "Won derland." The object is to give to both Eastern and Western people a monthly magazine thoroughly descriptive of the Yellowstone National park, and in fact the entire West, fully illustrated and in dexed, and in every way of modern style and workmanship. This venture is almost an appeal from the people in and nearby this community, as well as from a goodly number of the tourist traffic, who, after indulging in a few weeks in the forests of wonderland, wish to keep their minds refreshed upon its glories. A large num ber of subscriptions have already been taken. The price of subscription will be $S.5o per year in advance. New Publication for Investors. The July number of the Manual of Sta tistics Supplement-the first monthly issue of this new publication-is an attractive pamphlet neatly gotten up and replete witn information in the broad field it covers. In every respect it is a complete ful fillment of the promises made by the pub lishers in the preliminary announcement concerning the work several months ago. It gives the investing and speculating pub lic a new, unique and valuable compen dium of those things with which they are vitally concerned, A special and promising feature of the work is the editorial department. Judging from the current number this appears to be carefully and very conservatively con ducted. Its utterances are not only timely, but they are marked by thorough knowl edge of financial and corporate affairs, and are moderate and reserved in tone. A comprehensive index to the contents of the number adds greatly to its ready usefulness and to its permanent value. The number has 87 pages of the same size as the Manual of Statistics, and typographi cally the Sqpplcment follows the Manual in every respect, so that it is an admir able complement to that well-known pub lication. For annual subscribers a hand some green cloth Binder is provided simi lar in size and style to the Manual.
