“Uxtry” Pie for Newsboys.

Special Feast at Their Lodging-House on Lincoln’s Birthday.

Lincoln’s Birthday will be celebrated by the boys at the Newsboys’ Lodging House, No. 14 New Chambers street, on Saturday night by a special dinner given by F. Delano Weekes, one of the trustees of the Children’s Aid Society.

Several prominent bankers and brokers from the Wall street district have been invited. There will be an amateur orchestra of fourteen pieces, moving pictures, and 150 newsboys will sing popular and other songs to the accompaniment of the orchestra.

Jig and buck dancing, boxing, Indian club swinging and other features will be included in the entertainment.

Mr. Heig, the superintendent, has been very busy all the week buying turkeys, chickens and pie.
