     Conscious that this won�t seem quite enough for the money, the mana-
ger thinks of concluding with a
	           GRAND UNION TABLEAU.
     ALL the Stars and Stripes will be brought in beautifully.  Patriots

     xWe offer the following bets to the consideration of any rival establish-
ment:�
		We bet 3c, that over 2 persons will be delighted.
		  �    �   3c.    �     �    5     �         �     �         �
		  �    �    �      �     �   10    �         �     �         �
		  �    �    �      �     �   20    �         �     �         �
		  �    �    �      �     �   30    �         �     �         �
     And including all the dead heads we bet 25 cents that there will be

		         �UNION FOREVER.�
