',';',!,.,;, v' 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 low prices. 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 market. 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.
