Women Biggest Eaters From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. San Francisco.—Alfred Steimer,- fa mous as a chef in the cafes of San Francisco, made the statement before the national convention of cooks in possion here, that women eat more than men. “No matter how small a v oman is,” he said, "she can eat three times as much as a man can when she gets into action. If it were not for the gefrtler sex the big restaurants of the country would go broke, for men do not eat big meals as a rule when they are paying big prices for them. Wom en’s appetites are increased by lights, music and high prices, while a man's hunger is proportionately decreased under these circumstances.” j $5.00 I Glasses SPECIAL SALE OF GLASSES j We will sell our Cristo-Ease $5.00 lenses for reading or distance, $1.00, fitted by our expert optician.

A WOMAN WHO DOES Nothing could have been more ap propriate than the presentation of tl«* loving cup from the Lovemnn, Joseph & J-oeb salesladies to Mrs. W. K Mur doch Thursday at suffrage headquar ters, unless it be the thought behind the gift and the spirit of the woman behind the Inspiration. It is after a long, untiring fight that is only now' really beginning to show j results, that Mrs. Murdoch Is being I rewarded for her efforts in behalf of the salesladies of this city. And, al though the beautiful loving cup pre sented to Mrs. Murdoch will ever be as she said, her prized possession, the success of the Thursday early closing is even dearer to her heart. Thursday afternoon downtown 1b as quiet as a holiday and one feels grate ful that one day during the week of the extreme heat, the stores are closed for some hours and the salespeople arc getting a restful afternoon. Mrs. Murdoch has for years been a ' roclal worker in Birmingham, hardly an Institution for the betterment and aid of the needy in this city, but has felt her helpful hand, all big civic problems, in which women and chil dren are concerned, have been part of her work, and everybody in Alabama knows “child labor” and Mrs. Murdoch are synonymous, now her work for early closing, and her help with the serving of tea at suffrage headquarters are but added links in this woman s unselfish assistance to her friends in the working public. Mrs. Murdoch is a retiring littl woman, with a splendidly trained mind a compelling personality and a big heart. She is an ardent suffragist, and was one of the charter members of the Birmingham association. Mrs. Murdoch also has a fine repu tation for service outside of her own city, and has often been a conspicuous figure at many national conventions. MRS. SIDNEY M. XjuumAN.
