you and not Jnlia and I have dared to hope " He drew her toward him. "To hope that you might learn to care for me, Dulcie. And I have now dared to tell you because I have seen you for the past week aVclearly as I ever saw in my life." THE ARMY OF DESPAIR BY FRED ISLER, Teamster and Sec'y Hoboes' Union. FIVE-CENT RESTAURANTS. 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 the whole busines only cost one nickel. 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. (Next "The Hoboes' Union.") .
