On the ground floor, the rooms had been transformed into an attractive banquet hall. The ceilings and the tables were beautifully decorated, and the delicacies spread were highly relished by the delighted little ones. During the afternoon the children were entertained with music, a magical perform ance, and a Punch and Judy show. All these attractions were under the supervision of Professor Tony White.

Dlarrels ia Eatables at the Dnqaesne Hotel Other Hotels and Resorts Take Caro of Their Patrons. The climax of free lunches hss been reached in this city, and last night, on the first evening of the New Year, a lunch cost ing nearly $500 was presented to the de lighted patrons of the Duquesne Hotel. This phenomonal spread was prepared under the direction of Charles Weingartner, Superintendent, who prepared with his own clever hands the," piece de resistance of the evening, a splendid natural representation of the famous St. Gotthardt's tunnel, of Switzerland. The device was ap parently a marvel of Rnow and ice, with trees and lakes, lifelike deer, cows, human beings, and an engine and train emerging from a gloomy tunnel. The delighted guests would not believe until they had tasted, that it all was made of cakes, bread, candies, sugar and stearine. Then there were splen did vistas of greens and salads garnishing such toothsome delicacies as espic of shrimp, au surprise of tenderloin au Belle vue, turkey a la choisy, salmon decorse a la royal et beurre du Montebello, besides tons of plain dishes that caught the gang, snch as ham, herring, chicken and lobster salads, croquettes, New Year's cakes and Yankee fish baskets. Last but not least, and the crowning glory of all was a tender, uentle suckling pig, done to a. turn, and looking so life-like that more than one well-known gentleman turned from four fingers of McKims to gaze in open-mouthed amazement and wonder if he had 'em. The best known legal, profes sional and financial men of this city stood about the festal board and enjoyed this prince of luncheons, while seven full dressed waiters hurried in duplicates of every piece asthey rapidly went the way of all mortal things down. Mr. Weingartner is the owner of the American Hotel in Enon Valley, Pa. He has consented, however, to take charge of the cuisine of the Duquesne in the place of Schlosser, and it was the opinion yesterday- that even Prince Schlosser could prepare no such spread as that where everything -from truffles to fish, and fish to truffles, was just exactly right. At the other hotels, and in fact at all well-known resorts about the city, esp cial attention was paid to that distinctly Amer ican, and distinctly enjoyable institution, the free, lnnch, and whether it is the fault of the lnnch, or the fault of the New Year, the effect was the same, and the receipts for yesterday far exceeded those of any day in the year. A great popular demonstration the rush of the people after Salvation Oil. rricc 25 cents. Wednesday New Stock Muslin Underwear.
