"'Have a World's Fair cane, boys," says Leon Mandel, general manager of Mandel Brothers, state street store, to these orphans from the Bohemian Orphan asylum, the Illinois Protestant Children's home and the Chicago Home for Jewish Children.

For full information, citizens need only write, call in person, or telephone State 1500. Orphans will be admitted to the Fair in groups of three or more for five cents each."
