Mayor Shank last night predictea that he will have 500 guests, and he has made arrangements to care for that number.” The Roosevelt panic of 19t)7 is still with us.

Boehne asks the Dispatch to announce that he has arranged to send an assortment of garden seed to anyone writing him, in care of the House of Representatives, Washington, D.
